If I wrote this in verse,
It would be much worse,
So I won't even try
So just prose you'll descry
In the rest of this post.

I am a 43-year-old graduate student, a single mother, a full-time worker, a reader, a walker, and more. I sometimes wear all those hats at the same time. I live out west. Last fall, when I was in my first semester of graduate school, I was taking an online storytelling class. One of the internet links for the class led me to the Mudcat Café. I had seen the café once before, or at least heard tales about it from a friend, but decided that the link I found in the class was a bit of an invitation, so I set up a moniker and began to dabble. Shortly thereafter, (on September 14, 2009) and tragically, the man I was dating died of a heart attack. Distracted by grief, I decided to distract myself by reading the riveting and sometimes usually always irreverently engaging posts I found in the café. Then I stumbled across the MOAB. Now, I'm not really very comfortable posting comments to strangers in anonymity, but I was fascinated (and sometimes horrified) by the cadre of folks who posted to the Mother of All BS Threads. So, not wanting to miss anything, I began reading from the beginning. I can't tell you how many times my computer would freeze up until I learned to "trace" the messages! I read off and on, sometimes avidly, sometimes skimming, until finally last week I reached the most recent posts. I still can't believe you folks have been BS-ing for all this time! But now you feel like old friends to me. When I found the "how to morph photos" website, I screwed up my courage and decided to subtly say hallo.

So, for the past six months you've all helped me unwittingly through a difficult time. Thank you! And if it's all right with y'all, I'll pop in every now and then. I'd love to have a forum for some of the twiddle that bounces around in my head!

My only concern is that the friend who showed me Mudcat years ago may feel that my intrusion is an invasion of privacy. Hmmm, I'll have to give that particular situation some thought. In the meantime, Howdy!

The poem uses words that Walksabout Verse doesn't know, so I doubt he has a doppelganger. In the FWIW category of guesses. . .

A poster who posted quite wisely
Sent posts in the name of young Eisely
Said the MOABITES, "Who
Have we got--someone new?"
"Or a circumspect retro-reprisely?"

Have to ask, for the fit just seems too seamless for a complete newbie.   Of course, it could be you were previously an inhabitant of our twin world, located in the galaxy FUBAR in one of the universes immediately parallel to this one, and which we have reason to believe was recently visited by Gluon. Perhaps you got tangled in his broken leash as he dashed madly for home and MOAB and was dragged here willy-nilly through the recent wormhole that exited up through the privy behind the Legion Hovel? Though at first disoriented, you perhaps soon experienced a sense of deja vu? If that is the case, hope you like it here, for alas, the wormhole is no longer connected. One of the Legionnaire's had a particularly bad case of gas - so bad, in fact, that he could not leave the privy for several weeks. I'm afraid the damage in Haiti, Chili and off the coast of Sumatra were some of the minor repercussions. One major effect is the exit to that wormhole, while still in this universe, was blasted several galaxies away.


So, here's the question: Eiseley - are you new to Mudcat, or is it that you have a new Mudcat moniker?

Inquiring minds want to know.

There were two old maids of Birmingham
And this is the story concernin' 'em:
*** **** ****** *** *****
*** ******** *** ****
Of the Bishop as he was confirmin' 'em.

The Rector of Dunstin St. Just,
Consumed with canonical lust
Raped the Bishop's prize fowls
His precious young owls,
And a little green lizard, what bust.

Delusions of grandeur has he,
The ineffable Rapaire.
He thinks he has made
All this up in his 'haid'
But ex nihilo it came to be.

"Oh Sword-wielder, you didn't create us
We extruded right out of the chaos
Within the Mudcatters
(They're all mad as hatters),"
Cries the Mother of all that is BS.

You may have made earth, flesh, and bone,
Or created all things made of stone,
But there is one game
That you just cannot claim
For this Thread has a life of its own!

34,000+, Yes. I think I've read it all. Talk about a novel without a plot, or does this have thousands of subplots!? Oh well, at least I won't be shot by Mark Twain. I think I may have missed some in the 400s or 500s. My life was a bit crazy back in November. Oh, I guess it is still a bit crazy. But whose isn't?

This thread is an abject failure!!

I quote from the original post:

"... Henceforth, post all BS here in this thread. Soon there will be only one BS thread. We won't have to look for particular threads as this will be the only one and it will contain all the BS we have to offer.

My Gawd!! Why has this not been thought of earlier? It is so obvious!

I swear, sometimes I even amaze myself!

Once again, for those of you who are slow in understanding...hear me, Tweed! Post all BS in this thread from now on!"

Still...34,000+ does help...... I guess......

Ludwig von Mises: What characterizes capitalism is not the bad taste of the crowds, but the fact that these crowds, made prosperous by capitalism, became consumers of literature of course, of trashy literature. The book market is flooded by a downpour of trivial fiction for the semibarbarians. But this does not prevent great authors from creating imperishable works.

I wrote this some years back just rediscovered it in an old file. I call it "Dover Beach."

The sea is calm to-night.
The tide is full, the moon lies fair
Upon the straits; on the French coast the light
Gleams and is gone; the cliffs of England stand;
Glimmering and vast, out in the tranquil bay.
Come to the window, sweet is the night-air!
Only, from the long line of spray
Where the sea meets the moon-blanched land,
Listen! you hear the grating roar
Of pebbles which the waves draw back, and fling,
At their return, up the high strand,
Begin, and cease, and then again begin,
With tremulous cadence slow, and bring
The eternal note of sadness in.

Sophocles long ago
Heard it on the A gaean, and it brought
Into his mind the turbid ebb and flow
Of human misery; we
Find also in the sound a thought,
Hearing it by this distant northern sea.

The Sea of Faith
Was once, too, at the full, and round earth's shore
Lay like the folds of a bright girdle furled.
But now I only hear
Its melancholy, long, withdrawing roar,
Retreating, to the breath
Of the night-wind, down the vast edges drear
And naked shingles of the world.

Ah, love, let us be true
To one another! for the world, which seems
To lie before us like a land of dreams,
So various, so beautiful, so new,
Hath really neither joy, nor love, nor light,
Nor certitude, nor peace, nor help for pain;
And we are here as on a darkling plain
Swept with confused alarms of struggle and flight,
Where ignorant armies clash by night.
