You need a circumflex over the first "a" in "batardes", Amos. One of these: ^. It indicates where an "s" was left out of a word in French, although the "s" appears in the English word.

Yours for bettering your French, because I don't care about mine,

Amos, I'll bet you didn't know that a batarde is a type of cannon. So is a carronade, and all this time you probably thought it was some sort of cooling drink made from carrots.

You lose your bet, monsieur. But you win for etre bete. You have been hoist by your own petard, also a type of cannon, whose name derives from the French word for farting. Seems somehow poetically juste le mot, non?

Amos!... you frisky colt you! I would never do that unless I was asked and, even then, I would ask that the administrator granted access to open that app and supplied a password. Or looked me in the eye and said, "Bite me."

You're mostly a bit too frisky for your own good, as far as I can see. It makes you mentally hyperactive, encourages ADD, and you start imagining that a sesquipedalian conversation in cyberspace is your own mother. That's scary. I'm sure Freud would find it fascinating, though, and he'd probably have a sexual explanation. ;-)

Freud first theorized (based upon considerable evidence) that many, if not most, psychoses originated from childhood sexual abuse and trauma. When he proposed this to his colleagues they were appalled, for even in fin de siecle Vienna such accusations were not comme il faut, shall we say. So he changed his original theory, which had much more basis in fact, to what we now recognize as "Freudian psychology."

This is true, by the way.

Dale has a "sexual explanation" to respond to such... "fuck you". Appropriate in some circumstances.

Sorry I've been away for a couple of days. Spring seems to be here, at least in the form of spring cleaning. At my office today, and in my house this evening. The dust kittens are the size of sabre tooth tigers.

I don't think Dale's use of the word "fuck" in that context has much to do with sex, gnu....but I might be wrong. Perhaps he was sexually abused in childhood, thus he suffers a negative complex in regards to the sexual act. Whaddya think? Or is he just aping the behaviour of his general peer group when he says "fuck you"? Or could they ALL have been sexually abused in childhood? Truly, Freud would have a field day here. I think that if Freud had spent some time in Blind River, he'd have found enough source material to fill at least 10 volumes.

Oh, and LH, don't be silly--no-one here thinks of a thread in cyberspace as their own mother. That would be absurd. Even Mom says so. Have you observed, yet, what the title of this particular thread is? Just wondering, after all this time...

Yes, I see. It is the Mother of all the other BS threads. I get that. So when you refer to it as "Mom", you mean Mom only in that relative sense, not in the sense of your own family.

Okay. That's a good point, Amos, and it has done much to alleviate my concerns that you might all have been sliding into dementia.

Have a nice time in Gomorrah.

Good morning, Mom!
(No, I'm not referring to the one who lives south of here, but the ubiquitous web-based maternal thread.) I just finished shoveling the walks, and will spend an hour or so learning Polish before prodding the boys to finish their weekend homework. Please don't slip on the icy patch by the bridal veil bush. Rapparee might be persuaded to put the 4-pronged spikes on your cane so you can get around better.

She's putting on the Polish polish.

You needn't worry about my walking stick. Here in Merryland-On-The-DC Border -- at least where I am -- there's no snow and it's supposed to be 45 tomorrow. Besides, my walking stick has a tungsten carbide "ice point" under the rubber tip. It's useful for walking on icy surfaces, wading mountain streams, poking holes in the floors of airplanes, and threatening people who are mean to me.

Well, you guys missed out on my turquoise toilet and now you've missed out on a collection of a couple hundred holy/prayer cards. They went to a friend who's a loose nun. That is, she doesn't live "in community" but has her own place and works with a hospice. She's also a MS in Nursing and more-or-less nuts. Eiseley, she says she's going to come visiting this year so be warned.

Nuns are cool. Regular people. Some are nice as can be. Some are as crazy as a bag a hammers. Sister Mary ********* cracked my knuckles with a wooden pointer and I disagreed with her judgement and decision so I grabbed it and broke it in two. She reached out to grab me but I was 9 years old. She chased me but I was 9 years old. I got home and told Me Mère. Sister Mary had some explaining ta do when Me Mère arrived at the school. Me Mère was about 5 tall but she would give you the shirt off her back or take yours if you fucked with her. Sister had NO chance in... you know.

ALthough none of my friends are Sumerian, some of my friends are Nuns. Some are loony, many are nutty and belong in a nuttery, but none live in nunneries. Nunneries are all for nuns, but not all nuns are in nunneries. New nuns often shun nunneries, but new nuns know so little and none are inundated with knowing.

Thank you for the birthday wishes, and I must correct Amos.

Blind River had a very exciting time a couple years ago when Shame McBride flushed his stash and caused the sewers to back up and act as geysers in every drain in town. It wasn't a very big stash, but it was such bad stuff that even the sewers threw up. That was the official explanation given by the Blind River Sanitary and Sewer Commission and it was backed by whatever the Canadians call their version of the EPA. Unfortunately (for Shame) he was partaking of the facilities at the time and it acted as a gigantic enema on him -- the jail hasn't been the same since.

A great many things occur in Blind River every day, Amos, but most of them are quite mundane. People wake up grumpily to their alarm clocks (if they're employed), stagger to the washroom, brush their teeth, stagger to the hall, put on their lumberjack jackets and their baseball caps, go outside and start up the pickup truck, clear off the snow and ice from the windows, stop off at the Tim Horton's Drive-Thru for a quick coffee and breakfast, then go to work, etc....

Bored teenage girls stand around smoking and gossipping. Bored teenage boys stand around cursing, eyeing the girls, and bumming a smoke.

A bored cop cruises down Main Street, stops at Tim's for a donut. Asks if anyone's seen Shane?

Then there are the unemployed, a good 50% of Blind River...I could tell you how they spend their day, but I think you probably get the idea by now.

I guess it depends on your definition of "happening". You make Dead River sound like a real happening place.

Maggie dog found out what skunks smell like. But it's almost all gone now.

Did you know the standard remedy for skunk spray is a pint of hydrogen peroxide (3%) and a mess of baking soda and dish-soap? I swan. The things you learn anymore!

How many times does one have to swan to reach a sense of completion, Amos?

It's true, Blind River is a pretty dead place, but is that really their fault? I think it's more a problem of their geographical location than anything else. Then too, the economy has been depressed lately. When you live in a place that's too far north, too far away from any real center of culture, and there's not a hell of a lot to do except drink, have sex, get high, and commit random acts of reckless stupidity (like driving your snowmobile out on the lake), what else can you expect?

You should look up Blind River on Google Earth, take a look around the place, have a gander at the actual Tim Horton's Donut Shop which Shane patronizes, and check out the Iron Horse Tavern where he goes to see the Wet T-Shirt contests. You'll be impressed!

That gives you the satellite shot of Blind River. Now go in close and search for the "Iron Horse Inn, 24 Woodward Avenue, Blind River". The Iron Horse is one of Shane and Don's favorite watering holes. There's a stunning example of artwork on the front wall by the same guy who painted the art on one of Don's pickup trucks. Shane would like to do that kind of art too, mostly of semi-naked girls and dragons and demons and related stuff, but he's so far been too lazy to learn how, so he simply dreams about doing it, kind of like playing air guitar.

Yes, it is. As Shane would say, "You can, like, take THAT to the bank, eh?" Blind River. Love it or leave it. Neil Young once mentioned Blind River in a song...I think the title of the song is "Long May You Run"...a nostalgic look back at a car he drove way back in his teen years. He seems to have lived in Blind River for awhile or at least was visiting there. Rick Fielding once even played a gig in Blind River, so he told me. At the hotel. And survived!

And you're right about Officer Dana, Amos. She should move to Toronto...or better yet, the nation's capital: Ottawa, a much more interesting and likable place than "the Big Smoke" (Toronto). Toronto was a great city in the 60s and early 70s, but it's turned into on oversized, conjested urban hell since, by Canadian standards at least.

Yes, that is the famous "liberry" where Shane has had numerous adventures over the years, including the final disastrous incident where he resisted arrest by several extremely irritated police officers by climbing on top of the bookshelves and hurling hardbound books down at them. This was after the "liberrians" had attempted to kick Shane out for surfing Internet porn on library time. He made a big scene about his "rights", so they called the police. The rest is history.

Shane has been limited to begging Don's girlfriends for use of their iPads and similar digital devices since the Great Liberry Fiasco.

Right next door to the library, you can see Michou's Country Treasures, a charming little gift shop that Shane has never entered.

"They ain't flippin' got nothin' in there!"

So...he's never been inside Michou's. He did throw up on their front entrance once, though...after getting kicked out of the Iron Horse.
