Well, just so you know, Amos' old playmate, Donatien Alphonse François, died on this date back in 1814.

WOW - I just read, in another thread, that 999 (aka Peace, Bruce, etc.) actually LOADED THE ENTIRE MOAB to test Max's new cloud computing virtual machine. Perhaps in a few months when he finishes reading it he'll post a comment.

Well, Amos, here I am on a not too bad evenin' in my office, goin' over my files. I have a half full glass of whiskey in fronta me. I got a good life, lotsa friends, a great gal, and a flourishin' career. I got the respect of my peers and the plaudits of my community. Too bad you don't get to share in any of this, but you made yer choice. Yer choice is to deny my existence. Fine. Too bad for you, Roscoe, cos you just stepped right outta my world and into the dark limbo of yer own denial. You are no one, mister. Got that? No one. Nadie'. You don't even cast a shadow. You leave no genetic traces behind. Yer nothin' in my world.

Chonga, sweetheart, baby -- if I stop thinking of YOU you'll vanish with even a whimper. Your existence will be as if you never were, less than a whiff of cigar smoke in a tornado. You exist only because I will it to be so -- and Amos, too. In fact, EVERYTHING exists because I wish it so, even myself. I brought myself and everything else into existence because I willed it.

Perhaps I'll stop thinking about it long enough that your trigger finger will disappear. Will that convince you that I'm telling it to you straight?

Fat chance, Rap. You got things turned right around backwards. I didn't think of YOU in the context of this here thread between 2:39 and 7:24 today, and where was you? Hmm? I don't see a word from you on this thread durin' those approximate 5 hours, and ya know why? Coz I willed you right out of existence by not thinkin' about you. Yer very existence depends on MY will. I letcha back in at 7:25.

Now get down on yer knees and say 50 "Hail Chongo"s...or I'll do it again. For a longer period of time.

That was only one.

And I made ya say it wrong. I also made ya disappear for several seconds right before I posted this. Didn't notice, didja?

Of course not! How would you be able to notice when you wasn't there to notice? ;-D Ook! Ook!

See, this is the thing. You ain't actually been around for about half the time in the past 6 months cos I just disappear you whenever the whim hits me, but you never even noticed, cos as soon as I bring ya back, everything seems "normal". I mean normal in yer terms....which is like abnormal in most people's terms.

For all you know, you might not be there tomorrow, but then you'll be back the day after. It's all up to me. Nobody else notices either, cos I control all of it, see?

There. How do ya like gettin' yer own line back? Hmm? Sounds familiar, don't it?

Hail Chonga, full of grease.
Much shit was in thee.
Cursed art thou by the zoo visitors
Because thou art a poop-flinger.

Jesus and Mary, Mother of God!
Pray for that sinner

Amen.

Notice how I made ya say it wrong again, Rap? I do that to embarrass you. I find it amusin' to get the world thinkin' you are a deeply prejudiced man who wallows in specist slurs, instead of lettin' 'em see that you actually love and respect all apes and monkeys and wish you was more like them. Why do I do this? Well, I am helpin' you pay off yer sins, see? You done a lotta bad things in this life and in some of yer previous lives, and I am gonna help you pay it all off and start off again with a clean slate, by embarrassin' the hell out of you in various ways, ways accomplished through my Divine Will.

I might make you take off all yer clothes and run around in the downtown of Pocatello yellin' "I'm a little scrunchy! I'm a little scrunchy!" until the cops arrest you and haul you away to the funny farm.

Or I might not. Haven't yet quite decided about that one.

Note how the completely fictional being known as "Amos" at least has the honesty to admit that he don't live in my world. He got that right. Amos is a pallid mental construct, see? He has no real corporeal existence in any world, but he does caper around in a sorta hypothetical dream-like dimension that is just a step removed from Bedlam on one side and Woody Allen's rapid-eye movement phases on the other. Woody has been seein' his shrink for some time about that, cos he don't like California much. He wants the Amos character in his dreams to relocate to Manhattan. I could make this happen, but I ain't ready to. I enjoy lissenin' to Woody kvetch and whine and carry on about it while he is layin' on the psychiatric couch.

There has been some confusion lately about the exact wording of the Hail Chongo, a traditional prayer uttered by humans who are showing contrition for their sins of specism and their exclusionary thinking and behaviour, as well as for their sins in a more general sense.

According to the New International version of the Book of Kong, translated from its original Mangani, these are the words, in English:

Hail Chongo, full of grace, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou amongst primates, and blessed is the fruit of thy table, as well as the whiskey in thy cupboard and the cigars in thy desk drawer. May thine ammo never run out. O Chongo, foremost among gumshoes, pray for us wretched sinners, now and at the hour of our death, whether it be by the knife, the fist, the gun, the noose or the bottle. Amen.

I understood every word Amos inscribed herein. Perhaps that is due to my profundity, or my apprehensability, or my continuous cultivation and self-disciplining in the quest for the Eternal Whatever. But again I might simply read too much and have way too much education, knowledge, and yes, wisdom for understanding by mere mortals.

But Amos is correct, and I for one would rather be among the 1% than among the 99% who do not have what it takes to climb to the top of the tree. Of course, the 99% (which includes Chonga) will never know the difference any more than a fish apprehends the water in which it lives.

Ah, yes, the comforts of the Ivory Tower intellectual lifestyle! I understand all too well. I too used to delight in confounding the common herd by using words like "jejeune" "outre'" and "ennui" whenever the opportunity presented itself. It made me feel so.....special. And I loved the blank looks I would get from the girls at the donut shop checkout. ;-) But then I realized that I was becoming hardhearted, detached, supercilious, dismissive...even, dare I say it...vain!

I fear that the same thing could happen to Amos. I wouldn't want that to happen to a good fellow like him. Therefore I keep encouraging him to avoid the heady temptations that come treading stealthily neath the cloak of higher learning, just waiting to turn the unwary aspirant into an upperclass twit of the most intolerable sort!

After all, that sort of thing got people beheaded in the French Revolution, you know, and shot in the Russian one! We must eschew the temptation to indulge in obscure and tendentious verbiage. It leads to terrible things in the end.

The truth of the matter is that Little Hawk, as he approaches his second childhood, is slowly losing his ability to differentiate between the universe of the real and the universe of the imagined. This is typically symptomatic of early=onset Gerund Disorder. In any case, he becomes upset if anyone corrects him by pointing out that Chongo is not a flesh and blood creature. BEst to just humor or ignore him on this issue. He seems to have held on to his usual level of near-competency on other topics except for political matters.

Every dachshund owner I know (and I know several) shovels the yard clear of snow and puts a series of overhead electric heater up so the poor little things can do what they need to do in comfort. During snowy or rainy weather they protect the poor little darling with an umbrella. Daisy Gnedddenhutten was electrocuted last winter when the umbrella she was carrying over her Precious Pepper touched the heating elements of an overhead electric heater; Precious Pepper wouldn't go out again for a couple of hours after that tragedy.

I'm not saying that you should go so far as to electrocute yourself for dachshunds, LH, but certainly you must have the dog's "grounds" arranged as above and so do be careful carrying the umbrella.
