Y'know, I can arrange for a space in a Chicago gym where you two bozos can settle yer differences in the old style...boxing gloves or bare-knuckled. Teeth too, if that turns yer crank. There's also a secluded spot outside-a town where the North Side Gorillas and South Side Baboons like to take their personal differences and professional disputes and arguments about the peckin' order in their respective organizations. It's in the woods, but they have cleared a large area as a "free fire" zone, if it's ranged equipment you like usin'.

Lemme know, okay?

J'accuse! The once coherent Manne of Booques, sad to say, has succumbed to the ravaging inroads of DBD (Drooling Bookmeister Disorder) and evidently has slipped across the nebulous no-man's land between reality and phantasmagorical hallucination.

In this condition he may not be able to differentiate between BS and factual narrative, which as you know, is a critical faculty if one is to generate anything approximating decent BS.

Out of sympathy I will not further chastise him for any drooling idiocies which emanate from his region until (let us hope) the condition clears up. If it is not his fault, but the way he was drawn, I do not feel trying to correct his far-flung errors will serve any good purpose.

Word has come that Amos failed both a test for MSUD and a Wassermann Test. Testing for Anoplophora glabripennis and Verticillium have begun; these conditions might well derive from his childhood.

YEs ma'am, the misbehavior of prions is the genus of Mad Cow, as far as we know, and also possibly the hidden source behind the less well-documented Drooling Bookmeister Disorder.

gnu if no one is around it doesn't matter if he's in front, behind, or inside.

Of course you were talking about proteins. Isn't this some of what was discussed with Mad Cow Disease? I'm asking off the top of my head, not looking anything up.

PRions are not atomic particles, Stilly! :D They are insane proteins.

The CDC workers at the Class VII facility where Amos is receiving medical care report he is delusional, with manic periods of depression in which he believes that he is more-or-less healthy and that he can still play guitar. He has had to be actively restrained from harming himself and/or others.

A prion disease is suspected.

Actually I have developed a small cold since Rapparee started posting his hallucinations about my health. The ratio between the magnitude of the postulate by Rap and the actual effect in my nose is about 10,000:1 I think. Interesting. Perhaps he is trying too hard to make me sick.

Amos is abscessing. He's been taken to the CDC's main shop in Atlanta via a mobile patient isolation unit courtesy of the US Air Farce. Word is, the entire crew will be quarantined for several weeks and the aircraft burnt.

They're not sure what he has, but all of the parakeets in his neighborhood are dead and the US Marine Corps recruiting depot is very concerned for the recruits.

Did you know that an enlarged prostate can unenlarge. I was delighted when the doc said, "Back to one exam a year." VERY delighted. Kinda took the sting out of it.

Does a hyper tie rod have somethin ta do with yer streering system? The opto and the nerdo said they highly doubted it I was hyper (the opto wouldn't have said anything until I told him about my eyes protruding from the sockets being a slight problems when I sleep) but that I should be checked out so my GP has ordered me stuck and bled.

Did you know that ya can't have certain blood tests for at least 4 days after ya have a finger shoved up yer ass? Although, it did kinda feel like his finger was in far enough to poke me in the thyroid.

Blepharoplasty. Careful, there are photos.

I could probably use something like that - I have the kind of eyelids that tuck under in such a way that the skin doesn't breathe. Get those white bumps called milia. They are really bothersome at times. But I think hot compresses four times a day sounds more comfortable than what Pat went through, so I'm not racing down to the dermatologist or whoever to do it.

Well, part of her recovery is to use ice packs and to begin exercising her eyelid muscles -- no more than 10 pounds each no more than 10 times each per day for the first two weeks, and then adding 5 pounds per week until she can can crush you with just a blink of her eyes.

Blepharoplasty is surgical modification of the eyelid. Excess tissue such as skin and fat are removed or repositioned, and surrounding muscles and tendons may be reinforced. It can be both a functional and cosmetic surgery. IN my case it would be both. I would think I would need quadrilateral.   It would improve my looks AND my peripheral vision.

I cracked the two lower molars next to the back molars the same way... pork shoulder picnic chops had little pieces of bone in the meat. Don't buy em anymore.

Apparently, I am one of the lucky ones that have four roots in these and very lucky to have such large and deep roots. It was excruciating. Drill, inject, drill, inject... 8 times with some of them. $1800 a crack. But, Mexico is a fair drive from here.

Apparently they're going to do the whole dental implant thing at once. Tooth out, implant and new thing in. At least that's the impression I get from the litterachure they gave her.

Turns out the tooth with the root canal was cracked and probably cracked last year when they did the rc. It didn't show up on the x-rays today OR a year ago, but it's found by a probe. Awkward place for a crack, apparently, not one you'd look for a crack. BUT the orthodontist refunded here half the cost of the root canal because it failed.

Money is always nice. Unexpected money is even better.

Well, the folks in IF screwed up and Pat's surgery is now tomorrow morning at 7:00 ("be here by 6"). We're going to go up and spend the night 'cause we ain't no fools. Getting the EKG they wanted last night was a breeze at our local horsepithall, and then this...farce...this morning. Then it looks like Friday she has to have an extraction as a start on an implant for a failed root canal.

I may or may not check in until later tomorrow.

I prefer snow that gently but insistently falls, covering the ugliness of Winter whilst I sit by a quiet fire with a good book and some good brandy, lost in some other time or place. Perhaps I'm with Tars Tarkas and John Carter, or learning of the Vigilantes, or traveling through the slums of 19th Century London, or chatting with the Grey Lensman or Sir Isaac Newton, or trying to understand the nature of Time until I have indeed out-watched The Bear.

First important snowfall was an annual drill at our house in Connecticut, growing up. We were near the bottom end of a winding, hilly two-laner going up to Ridgefield, and every year on the first snow, those who forgot what "snow" meant would end up in our living room, sipping some restorative sherry and waiting for the tow truck or the husband or whatever to come get them out of the ditch. Never failed. Some years we would get six or eight at once sitting around the fire. Very pleasant to those of us who were snug at home.
