I suppose that depends on whose bush is taking the beating, Shame.

I forgot to commend Stilly on her contribution of the term "mental flooss", which is so concise as to be shocking in its precision!! Brava!

LH, I know you are a man of good heart and high humor as well, but I just want you to know that you do not fool me for a minute; your glad handed bonhomie is lovely and charmin' but I know who rules the roost behind the squawks of Shatner, Shane, Chongo, and all the rest of those mental flosseries of yours. Do not, I beg you, play the disingenuous simpleton with me, sir.

Ne'er the less, the ballad of Forty Four, with its terrible symmetry and its endless new avenues for rhyme schemes, lies before us, and you can rest assured your vapid menagerie will not winkle me out of making my mark for that much more precious milestone.

Amos, you want to "here it now"? Don't you mean that you want it "here and now"? I can arrange for it be be "here" "now" but to do so will put a kink in the space/time/matter/energy continuum/matrix which might well cause you to softly and silently vanish away. I'm certain you don't want that.

gnu, I got pissed off with the US Postal "Service" and the Canadian one. It is not wise to piss me off because then I will Do Certain Things, like violently deconstruct post offices or something. Now, if I find out what happened to/who took the last stuff I mailed I shall probably do something creative to the culprit, like chase him/her around the tree his/her guts are nailed to. As for GOOD beer, I suggest something like Moose Drool, only you probably can't get that where you are, so consider it a Christmas present of whatever beer you CAN get.

Ummm...Winona? Is that the person to whom you are referring, Amos? She who must be obeyed without question?

Rap - Instead of making Amos vanish away softly and silently...why not do it with a loud thunderclap and a burst of bluish light, followed by a powerful odor of ripe bananas? After all, according to Neil Young, "it's better to burn out than to fade away".

Nah, not ripe bananas. That'd smell like the valve oil I used to use on my trumpet. How about skatoles, hydrogen sulfide, butyl mercaptan, and butyric acid all kinda slopped together, with a soupçon of cadaverine for a garnish?

And perhaps something like a gradual disappearance, a sort of fade-out, followed by a sharp CRACK! and a flash like an arc lamp shorting out. leaving only a piece of blackened ground where nothing ever again grows?

Did not the heavenly rhetoric of thine hand,
'Gainst whom the Cat could not hold argument,
Persuade our Mom to this false perjury?
Vows for thee broke deserve not punishment.
The last K I forswore; but I will prove,
Thou being a varlet, I forswore not Mom:
My vow was earthly, thou a hellion raised;
Thy sin being gain'd cures all disgrace in me.
My vow was breath, and breath a vapour is;
Then, thou hell's flame, that warms us from below,
Exhale this vapourous vow; in thee it is:
If broken, then it is no fault of mine.
If by me broke, what fool would be at fault
To loose an oath under dark Hell's assault?

And now the pot calls the kettle black! Plagiarizing from Shakespeare, poem III of the "Passionate Pilgrim!" For shame! Go to, thou plagiarist! Speak to me no more of stolen verse, for you are found to be a knave, a cut-purse of poesy, a jack-a-napes, a pick-pocket of the intellect of your betters! It is from this that an image emerges: a thief of the wit of his betters, and (dare it be said?) a follower of Perry, Gingerich, and Bachmann!

Did not the heavenly rhetoric of thine eye,
'Gainst whom the world could not hold argument,
Persuade my heart to this false perjury?
Vows for thee broke deserve not punishment.
A woman I forswore; but I will prove,
Thou being a goddess, I forswore not thee:
My vow was earthly, thou a heavenly love;
Thy grace being gain'd cures all disgrace in me.
My vow was breath, and breath a vapour is;
Then, thou fair sun, that on this earth doth shine,
Exhale this vapour vow; in thee it is:
If broken, then it is no fault of mine.
If by me broke, what fool is not so wise
To break an oath, to win a paradise?


             --Bill Shakespeare, 1599

Last time I was in Calgary, to stay with my aunt and uncle, I mailed a box home to myself. It seemed odd to go into a drug store to mail a box, but what the heck. As I counted through that funny looking change and bills to pay, we got talking about the U.S. quarters for the states. Turned out he was collecting them, so I pulled out my U.S. coin purse and we looked through for those he didn't have. I think he bought five or six from me (we did that at par, much easier and no great benefit or loss at the time.) Rap and Gnu, you should have gone to the mall in Calgary to do your mailing, that guy would have been very helpful because he'll still have warm memories of buying my U.S. quarters.

I'm gonna vent, all right.

This morning I was at the Elks Lodge for coffee. The last people out were myself and Tim. Tim's in his 80s and recently had hip replacements -- and he's got balance problems. He got outside the building fine, but as we were walking toward his car (something told me to stick with him) he fell. I tried to catch him or at least break his fall, which I succeeded in doing. I guided him to his car and swore that he'd be using the walker he had in the backseat from here on out.

I just returned from the orthopod's office. Tomorrow at 0615 I have an MRI scheduled to see if the distal bicep ligament in my right arm has been torn away, and if so I will have surgery on the 14th.

I must admit that I have been experiencing quite a bit of pain....

Fear has no place in my personal emotional pantheon, good Hawkster.

Last night I nearly lost it altogether for a moment though, and although I do not recall any fear it would have been a perfect opportunity for some.

I had gotten up after a couple of hours of deep sleep to drain the old bladder, and just as I finished, a momentary dizzy spell occurred and the next thing I knew I was flat on the floor with no power over my body, splat!! As though all the puppet's strings had been cut at once. Bam. I got up and staggered to bed and fell down again. After a few moments, I decided to drain the old bladder again, so I got up and went back to the bathroom and collapsed again, bam, like a lathered old sack. So the good wyffe made me dress myself and hustled me to a nice ER near here on the bluffs over the Pacific, where they tubed and measured and electro-cardiogram'd me and stuck my head in a whirling trashbin CAT scan machine. All systems normal. All stats green, everything checked out.

Final analysis was a random event known as micturition syncop--a faint that occurs when peeing interferes with the vagus nerve and knocks out the blood supply to the brain.

So I am fine, but I am here to tell you it was a most unnerving experience.

The doc called it micturation syncop, and ever the refined editor of technical detail I made a mental note it should be prounounced with an "i" not an "a". But I was polite enough not to mention it to him until I had double cvhecked it. Besides, he held all the cards and owned the pretty nurses, and I was wearing a stupid open-backed nightie, so I kept my mouth shut.

Yikes. That must have been a very unnerving experience you had there, Amos. Let's hope it was just one of those weird anomalies that occurs once and is not seen again...like the time one of Chongo's Baboon buddies spontaneously combusted at Duffy's Bar just after consuming 16 shots of vodka on a bet. All that was left behind was his pork pie hat and a copy of the racing form. The hat is on permanent display there now (over the bar), in memoriam.

"Rupture of the biceps tendon at the elbow is unusual. It occurs in only one to two people per 100,000 each year, and rarely in women."

Well, you have demonstrated again what a rare bird you are, indeed, Sir Bookman. Not so rare as one in a million but 'tis enough, 'twill serve.

I have been pondering my own experience, as it has shown me how habituated I have become to the instantaneous connection with the body's control panel. Having that linkag completely severed, even if only for a moment, was unnerving, as you say, but also quite interesting. While I did not lose consciousness, the transition of awareness from body-channels to self only was a sort of drastic switch, like taking away an addict's video game; I can see that had it been an actual death event it would have taken me some time to re-orient.

I suspect, therefore, that all of us who contemplate mortality would do well to practice shifting between the two orientations. This sometimes happens in meditation. But practicing doing it deliberately is probably a good exercise for preparation for the next such transition.

After all, it would be far better to enter the Wheel by choice and intent rather than just trust karma to slam you in somewhere tolerable.

This morning I drove down to the border again and tramped across TJ to my dental surgeon who says everything on the XRays is swell. In a few weeks I will go in for the implants porper--that is, the sockets that get implanted. Two of 'em. Six months for them to grow into place and the teeth go in and I am back to abttery. What a long ridiculous process.

Coming back the line was insanely long--shuffled down one street and up another to get to the gate in to the US. I am surprised they don't have a separate line for US citizens. It took a couple of hours to get across!!

Anyway, life marches on and a quiet Saturday afternoon was enjoyed by all.

Actually, sitting down to pee is the sensible way to do it even FOR a man (unless you're outdoors). It eliminates the problems caused by lousy aim, therefore reduces cleanup, and is more relaxing.

I find it funny that men are afraid to pee sitting down, presumably because it would make them "look like a girl". Given the fact that a great many of my greatest heroes (musical and otherwise) are females, I don't particularly mind emulating a few of their more practical habits.

The wisecracks may now begin... ;-D

SUbcutaneous blood is the best sort, Rapparree. The serious problems only begin when it gets outside the skin...

LH, your rationale for sitting to pee is meretricious and without merit. Nothing beats the satisfaction afforded to the user by skilled mastery of the point-and-tink interface. It says that here is a being who foregoes docile comfort for stand-up style, who faces the world with his pecker in his hand, unafraid, leaving his mark on the world with elan. The notion of hunkering down and folding your dingus down between your thighs to aim it is timid and wan in contrast.
