I was working in the Library late one night
When my eyes beheld an awful sight
For my servers from their racks began to corrupt
And suddenly and quite abrupt

They did the mash
They did the data mash
They did the data mash
It was quite a crash
They did the mash
It spread in a flash
They did the mash
They did the data smash.

From my library in the midst of town
To the east and the west catalogs were crashing down
The web bots all came from their Google abodes
To crash and corrupt our servers' nodes.

They did the mash
They did the data mash
They did the data mash
It was quite a crash
They did the mash
It spread in a flash
They did the mash
They did the data smash.

The web bots were having fun
The party had just begun
They corrupted our executables
And when that was done
They fled before the rising sun!

They did the mash
They did the data mash
They did the data mash
It was quite a crash
They did the mash
It spread in a flash
They did the mash
They did the data smash...(repeat ad nauseam)

Geez, Amos...rhyming "bikey" with "psyche". Knowing LH as you do, why didn't you use "trikey" instead?

By dawn next day the Hawk was back,
Riding on his bikey
The scars on both his knees had healed,
If not those on his psyche.
He'd gone to see a guru-man
All balding, fat and gray,
While the rest of, why we just dug on
For the 32 of Kay.

The sun it got to bold Rapaire
So we put him on the shelf;
He'd started calling himself names,
And was quite beside himself.
But he'd made posts of good BS,
In a bold and noble way,
So we let him fall back, and took up the slack,
Bound for 32 of Kay.

"there is no higher purpose in life than helping others"

So true! And that is why I attended the National Shatnerization conference in Ottawa, our nation's capital, this past weekend, seeking ways to help others. The event was of course chaired by none other than our Fearless Leader himself, William Shatner. We explored ways and means to achieve complete national Shatnerization in Canada by 2012...after which we will work to extend it to the entire world.

Many inspiring speeches were given.

The general mood of the attendees was quite positive. Although full Shatnerization of this society has not yet been achieved (despite earnest efforts that began as early as the late 60's), it was agreed by most attendees that we are getting reasonably close.

I had to stay over an extra day in Ottawa as Mr Shatner took aside a few of the more advanced accolytes for a special accelerator course held at a retreat centre in Kanata. It was incredible!

I feel exhausted, but quite elated, and ready to gear up for FULL Shanerization by August 2012!

Don't believe in the alarmist BS about December 2012 that's coming out soon in Hollywood disaster movies. It's complete nonsense. We are going to embark on a brilliant new phase of human prosperity and spiritual development all over this planet, and it will begin on August 24th 2012!

Um, Wise and Noble, it is usual, in English speaking countries, for a person who is actually being his true self NOT to refer to himself in the third person. It violates the consensual constraints of the mapping domain for social interactions, you know...

The Wise and Noble Rapaire likes himself but he will change to please others, for there is no higher purpose in life than helping others.

It is my fault. I hoodwinked the real Rapaire into promising to be nice, and this is his passive aggressive solution.

I discharge thee from they bond, Rapaire!! I release thee from thine oath. Be but thine own true self and all shall be forgiven.

(My eyes are closed, so they can't see me. Their attention spans are quite short as a rule, so hoping this "phase" will pass. )

Must not be my night to drink wine. The chardonnay was too sweet for me to tolerate (Woodbridge), so I set it aside to use for cooking and went out to buy a bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon - Chateau Ste Michelle 2004. Expected a nice, aged, smooth red. I mean, $15.00 is high dollar wine for me:=)

Got home, opened it, took a sip.    Skanky.      Bad cork.

Good night to research 40's and 50's blues.

Last week I rescued a very pleasant little Spanish red wine from the deep discount table at the local grocery. It was mixed in with a lot of fruity sweet stuff with alcohol they put in wine bottles (Boone's Farm, etc.) I do drink Chardonnay on occasion, but tend to go more for the reds or some of the German wines (Gewürztraminer is a very nice white, sweeter than Chardonnay, but a great one during summer after dinner. Most of the ones that are the Kabinett (sp?) level of sweetness I like.

(Janie, Don't let them know you're looking, but are they finished with the "noble" stuff?)

Dear Amos,

T'was your words that cast the spell that brung forth this Noble Rapaire from the shadows. He is even more obnoxious than the real Rapaire. Please cast another spell to send this one back to the depths from which he sprang, there to release the bindings on the real, sarcastic, plagarizing, blood-thirsty, explosion loving, saber rattling Rapaire. He is pretty bad, but much more tolerable than this imposter.

And slow--so slow!--the posts went by
Each with a terrible weight
The empty miles ahead ticked down
TO one hundred fifty eight
And ticked again as each man stood
And had his noble say
One fifty left! We're on the path!
To the 32 of Kay.

The valiant band of MOABites
Posted of many things;
Of cooking sauce and bookmobiles,
The divinity of kings.
Of man o' wars and men of peace
And what was worth the pay;
And what we'd see when we crested o'er
That 32 of Kay.

One fifty-nine of empty posts
Haunted us through the mist
As the night moved off and the silver dawn
By sunrise just was kissed.
And through the chill of morning dew
Into the heat of the day
We sweated under ever tie
For the 32 of Kay.

The future line was clear to see
A long and empty line.
And the posts we knew we needed were
One hundred fifty nine.
But not a word of sloth or ire
Had any man to say,
As we slogged along in one desire
Toward the 32 of Kay.

Decided to be more subtle, sat two rows behind and used a yardstick;>)

Actually, because it was an R-rated movie, I had to buy a ticket and go in with them, sit until the movie started, and then leave. (Two kids got removed from the theatre just before the movie started because they were too young and did not have an adult with them, so I guess theatres take this pretty seriously.)

So, while the starry-eyed young lovers watched Zombieland then had supper, I took myself to supper, bought a new charger for my cell phone and some ice cream bowls, wandered through Pottery Barn and Williams-Sonoma, then camped out at Barnes & Nobles for another 2 1/2 hours.   And ran into several other parents that I know who were doing exactly the same thing.

All of our kids are 15 with learner permits. In my case, I live 30 miles west of the Mall. Girlfriend lives 30 miles south of the Mall. Her Mom was kind enough to take her to the Mall, and I drove her home, so had a chance to chat with her some.

First impression? I approve.

And will I ever be glad when he has his driver's license and a job to pay for his own dates and gasoline!

That old thread MOM sent you to is great reading--did you try it? The trick is to go to the end, where the current posts are. Amos probably puts the most stuff up there.

Yes, Janie. Sit way far away and try not to stare at them, if you feel you must go into the film also. My choice would be to not go in. I don't know if my son actually has a special friend--he does everything with groups and I haven't asked. It'll sort itself out.

My daughter's first date was a casual thing, she and the boy across the street chose a local restaurant they could walk to and just went for lunch. They didn't ask anyone's permission (both were about 16, so it wasn't like either was robbing the cradle).

MOM is being nice and not telling stories about all of our first dates. We were such an awkward group when we were youthful, weren't we?

The bologna detection kit is redundant over here at MOAB, but whatever. I chuckled at it, but bologna is our business. My point is, this is a BS thread. The kids keep me happy with their bantering and sometimes they post pretty pictures and if they find an article about one of us, they share. The sex worker grave article (pretty lady, by the way) needs to be shared with more people, so it should be posted on News of Note (was "I read it. . .").

Ruffles Ed's hair

I've been aware for a while that you see the MOAB as a place to park wacky articles, but it actually isn't for that. Use that other thread for unusual and sometimes poignant articles so more people beyond the three or four of my kids who read over here might see it.
