If you buy it I'll help you paddle it. I'll even bring my own paddle. (This is not to be construed as assisting you in the uniquely Canadian indoor sport of "canoe paddling.")

Chongo says he's heard "through the grapevine" that Sarah Palin is into paddling bigtime.

His friend Renata has threatened him with terminal violence if he even thinks about getting her (Sarah) as his running mate in the next election.

There are so many remarks about Sarah Palin that seem to have become fair game - says this ardent feminist. She leaves herself open to it.

The thing to do, I think, is aim for human liberation. Then you don't have to worry so much about which gender you are or which gender the other person is, because it just doesn't matter.

That's why I'd never call myself a "feminist" or a "masculinist", to use a coined label.

Sarah's an interesting character. She has strong points and weak points. The movie "Game Change" is a fascinating look at her "maverick" role in the 2008 election where she was both a tremendous asset AND a tremendous liability for the Republican ticket, and all at the same time.

As my wife will tell you, I'm more of a "feminist" than she is (and she is, she is!). But I'm not going to pick on one or the other sex more than the other. I annoy, irritate, mock, and make fun of people on an equal basis -- much as stupidity is allocated amongst homo sapiens sapiens.

But the thing about stupidity is this: it is the ONLY "crime against Nature" that presumes capital punishment. Maybe not this time, maybe not for years, but unless you learn it WILL getcha.

I am in love! Totally smitten in my heart and in my mind! Now... that's a babe!

Ahhhh... sorry. Ummm. Indeed, the lass speaks volumes and her treatise is laudible and... ohhhh... yeah... all that and she just melts my mind and heart. That's the lass I wanted to meet 30 years ago.

Men go crazy for a smart dressed mind. Apologies to ZZ Top.

I believe that I'll refer to the ill-tempered, cross-dressing chimpanzee as "Chong".

As in "Hey, Bonzo, who's that couple?" "Man, that King Kong and Queen Chong! I thought you knew about them."

I'm sorry, I forgot "foul-smelling, flea-laden, unwashed,". This should be inserted before "cross-dressing" in my last post.

They say, sometimes, that the most vocal homophobes are struggling with latent homosexuality feelings within themselves. This may offer an insight into why Rapparree is so vocal about his dislike of alien species.

Yup, sometimes they say that. Sometimes they say that a cigar is a phallic symbol, too. Sigmund Freud, who was fond of cigars, once remarked, "Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar."

He's a simiophobe--he has an unreasoning fear of simians, and I suspect it is because he has to suppress his own impulses to run around on his knuckles making Ookish sounds. He probably confuses simians with analorangogies.

Your search - analorangogies - did not match any documents.

Yippie! I can make up any meaning I want. His analogies demonstrate his left hand doesn't know what his right hand is doing kinda like when an orangotango dunno wether to shove an apple or an orange up his ass.

Yeah... that's it.

You are a man of champagne-grade tastes, working a beer pocketbook. You can have your wish, certes, but it will be expensive. Considering that the value of the book is in the thought behind it, you'd be better off buying it in extra-large type.

I had a 375ml bottle of Spumante Bambino with my strawberries whilst screaming in delight on Centre Court at the annual final match of the world's most watched tennis tournament which concluded yesterday in Londontown. This year, my fav won in a very impressive 3 set victory over the No. 1 ranked player. Last year, Andy Scott was defeated in the final match. Soooo, he has gone from being a losing Scot to a wimming Brit and is the toast of Great Briton and and of Her Majesty's empire. The last Brit to win at Wimbledon was Fred Perry, 77 years ago.

I was at the Mariposa Folk Festival all weekend. It was fabulous!!! Among some of the great acts were The Kruger Brothers (the most amazing bluegrass band you will ever see), Oh My Darling (4 lovely girls from western Canada), Steve Payne (superb blues player), Rose Cousins from the Maritimes, and Arlo Guthrie who did an absolutely delightful closing set. I expected him to be good, but he was way better than good.

The only thing I saw all weekend that wasn't very good was Randy Bachman, backed by The Sadies. I think Randy should stick to doing his radio show, because he's very good at that. Why the heck they brought him to Mariposa, I don't know...but I guess it got more people in through the gates. (and I do like quite a number of his hits...he's just not doing them very well anymore)

Meanwhile, Shane is hard at work on the first draft of "Beyond Drunk and Disorderly - a Memwar"....or...is he just hard at work on the first draft, period? Beer, that is.

I hope he succeeds in finding backers. That boy needs a sense of purpose, not to mention a source of income.

Rap would be a soo-in and would likely get a nithood for his exemplary service. Alas, the pay is a paltry pittance! An insult to such as he. Of course, if he were to apply, I am sure final salary negotiations would be well in his favour.

Actually, the china there is quite nice. So are the carpets, paintings, silver, and furniture. If you DO decide to burn it down again, please get approval on the prerequisite forms needed for outdoor burning and be sure to file an Environmental Impact Statement (wait for approval). Otherwise you would get in trouble with the DC and Federal governments and you'd NEVER get clear of the red tape if that happened.

That sounded like a lovely dinner and evening, LH. Back there before the distraction of the Royal Library and the large print. (If the Royal Library has all large print books, as that big writing tended to suggest, that facility would be immense. As it would be if the books are all on cuneiform. Let's hope they were rational and kept the font and the page materials on a normal scale.)

I've seen/crossed over the pony express route out in the arid desert southwest. It might have been in Nevada. Did you know it only ran for two years? And I don't believe there was an Idaho branch. You'll have to try weather balloons and cross your fingers that a prevailing wind cooperates.

Russell, Majors, and Waddell ran the Pony Express, not the Post Office. It died bankrupt and deeply in debt. Besides, the Pony Express never existed, but the Central Overland California & Pikes Peak Express Company did.

Please be more precise in the future and refer the COC&PPEC. Thank you for your small, even minute, contribution to historical accuracy.

Yes, Virginia, there was a Pony Express.

It lives on to this day, as it lived in years past. It flourishes in small boys' hearts as they read under the bedsheets with a flashlight. It lives in the minds of young girls still using training wheels as they tear down the Elm Street hill to deliver the mail under a hail of Comanche arrows. It lives in the dreams and memories of middle managers stifling under the weight of neckties and carbon copies, and in the faint fancies of bored suburban housewives who hear the pounding of hooves and the slapping of leather in a far-away dream as they vacuum their wall-to-wall carpets. It carries these dreams as surely and as bravely as the COC&PPEC once carried postcards. In these hearts, and minds, and aspirations, I can assure you that the Pony Express rides on.
