Is a metaphor that only goes half-way a semiphor?

That's true. I met a phor on the avenue once and asked her to come back to my place and view my collection of rare prints. We never got there, however, because she would only go so far.

Yes, LH, but that does not mean that everyone who seems mad is secretly sane. Metaphors only go so far.

How about just temporary tomfoolery instead? ;-)

I may seem mad to you, sir, but in the land of the mad a sane man is seen as a lunatic, don't forget.

Nay, nay, you swollen-cheeked hoser!! You cannot dodge your intellectual responsibilities so easily. Your long and windy dissertations on spiritual dynamics and exalted aloofness of Serene Enlightenment will not serve to excuse you from the burdens of your incivility in other quarters, sirrah. You have no justification for painting such pictures, using borrowed tortures, except to own up manfully to temporary insanity, for which, at least your peers can offer compassion and sympathy.

Amos, I must reply to your question, which was: "Seriously, LH, don't you think it is disrespectful to steal other people's violent fantasies and then stick them onto your friends?"

Well...it would be disrespectful in some cases, I suppose, but not in this particular case due to the deep affection and mutual caring that we have built up over the years to the point where we now have what could be termed a "special" relationship, a relationship somewhat akin to that of Holmes and Watson, though not of course suffering from nearly so sharp a divide in intellectual powers and analytical grasp as was evident in theirs.

Whereas Watson was portrayed as the "everyman" and Holmes as the genius, in our case it is more like 2 brilliant beings of equally Einsteinian/Aristotelian dimensions shining out magnificently across a vast gulf of darkness like a pair of luminous stars set in the heavens to guide the less enlightened and aware who labour around us.

You have your incredible mastery of subtle prose and verse, not to mention wit. I have my matchless grasp of spiritual realities and psychological profiles. Together we blaze new trails in the enlightenment and liberation of the human soul.

And all that allows me to say to you things like:
























"Hey, you flippin' bolthole! HEY!!! Dog-breath! Yeah, I'm talkin' to YOU! You lissenin'??? I got 3 words for you. Ya ready???

Get FLIPPED, loser!!!"






And you will know immediately what I really mean by it, and not take any offense, because we have that special understanding. ;-D

Besides, I don't think I would know how to live in the mountains and swamps. I can't abide being more than fifteen minutes from a Home Depot, or ten from a sandy beach. I prefer being in walking distance to a nice market, as I am now, and with easy freeway access if I have to go any distance. Like this weekend, when I am going to Mudlark's to join her, my MIL, BBW and possibly even Barky, for a weekend celebration of BBW's birthday. HEr actual birthday is today and when she turned ont he kitchen lights at 5:00 this morning she discovered, lo!, gremlins had been reorganizing the kitched with banners, posters, flowers and a gift box with tangled ribbons flowing over it. This made her feel very birthday-ish indeed.

We care enough about people not to make them carry electricity around in jars, don't we? Don't you know how risky that can be? You open the wrong end, and POW!!!--smoking holes in your hands.

Well, that's because of the collapse of personal service in SoCal. You should move to the mountains or the swamps, where people still care about each other.

Why, no...here is San Diego we modernized to the grid system many years ago. Before that, sometime in the Truman administration, it was hand-delivered by an old Hispanic guy with a bristly mustache; he would bring it in glass containers, clinking in a wire-frame carrier. I suppose they were Leyden jars or something. But most folks here don't even remember that far back.

A girl brings my electricity too. She comes around about the fifth of each month. She gets out of her truck, walks up to the meter and zaps it with a little hand-held device that fills the meter up with enough electricity to last another month.

Here in Floribama, "screw it" is a one-syllable word, pronounced more like "skrit". The name "Bill", on the other hand, is at least two syllables, sometimes three, depending on the ratio of Flor to Bama in one's genetic and/or cultural makeup.

An Ode to Lethargy

Boredom, tedium, and ennui
Cannot compare with lethargy.
A pot of coffee cannot chase it.
Antidepressants can't erase it.
The only cure for this condition
is to say "Screw it!" and go fishin'.

"One of my childhood memories is of placing a chicken egg in a goose nest when I was about 10 (my young scientist phase). That mother goose was thrilled when her eggs hatched, and maternal love is such that she never seemed to notice that one of her babies was a neckless midget.

As for the chick, she never doubted her goosiness. At night, our chickens would roost high up in the barn, while the geese would sleep on the floor, with their heads tucked under their wings. This chick slept with the goslings, and she tried mightily to stretch her neck under her wing. No doubt she had a permanent crick in her neck.

Then the fateful day came when the mother goose took her brood to the water for the first time. She jumped in, and the goslings leaped in after her. The chick stood on the bank, aghast.

For the next few days, mother and daughter tried to reason it out, each deeply upset by the other's intransigence. After several days of barnyard trauma, the chick underwent an identity crisis, nature triumphed over nurture, and she redefined herself as a hen.

She moved across the barn to hang out with the chickens. At first she still slept goose-like, and visited her "mother" and fellow goslings each day, but within two months she no longer even acknowledged her stepmother and stepsiblings and behaved just like other chickens.

Recollections like that make me wistful for a healthy rural America composed of diverse family farms, which also offer decent and varied lives for the animals themselves (at least when farm boys aren't conducting "scientific" experiments). In contrast, a modern industrialized operation is a different world: more than 100,000 hens in cages, their beaks removed, without a rooster, without geese or other animals, spewing out pollution and ending up as so-called food ? a calorie factory, without any soul. "

(From Nicholas Kristof's column in the ?NYT).

I thought that story was just beautiful.
