In no particular order:

 

* Brain flu reasserted itself. No brains were harmed.

 

* Spunky had a fever spike that resulted in an emergency sponge bath

throughout which she chanted, "I HATE THIS! I HATE THIS!" and promised

not to have a fever if I'd just leave her ALONE.

 

* Sparky fell asleep in the closet while playing hide-and-seek,

because nobody went looking for her after all.

 

* Spunky was going upstairs and tapped the cat on the forehead while

she said, "Bad cat!" When reminded that the cat is not all bad, she

said, "That's okay. I say, 'Good cat!' on the way back down."

 

* Sparky was pleased beyond all measure to hear that I like to hear

what she has to say even when she uses the wrong words. Golly.

 

* Bobo won't talk except to say "Bee-doo." Her ass is chapped and she

is surly. Who could blame her?

 

* Every time I dream, it's wacky and vivid and bursting with RILLY

DUMB dialog. The other night I dreamed I was pulled over and when the

cop roused me and asked, "Are you Dee Dubble-you-eye?" I said, "Of

course not! That's a stupid name!" Like that.

 

* I think I might like to hijack alt.anthrax.chat and then not post

there.

 

* Spunky begged for pizza and then, for obscure tidy reasons, vomited

it on a towel in the hallway. I made the mistake of suggesting she

finish in the bathroom so she just puked all the way there. I should

know better than to interfere with a well-controlled pukestorm.

 

* I'm wound SO TIGHTLY that every time the phone trills I jump as

though a rifle fired, and usually just go ahead and clutch my chest

and fall to the ground. The little women are getting very expert with

the resuscitation drill.

 

* I am bothered out of all proportion that my favorite vegetable stand

is selling wind chimes that cost $100. I must actually have neighbors

that can be expected to buy these things when they were really just

after some nice tomatoes. Huh.

 

* It's pleasant to imagine rearranging my kitchen just to further

confuse myself.

 

* It's good to be home and home is where the hard-on is.

Like that guy said, "MegaLiz seems to be ensconced like a shining many

faceted jewel far from being ratified or even ratlinked swivel drivel."

 

 

And this proves it.

I am glad to know of these things. I will tell of things to me which

 

happened in another thread* yes? But you will go on and tell of more things

 

which happened to you and what you thought of these things and other things

 

not present in yet more threads yes? And then there will be many threads

 

which will tell of things which happened and what was thought of them, both

Something CREEPIE about this bit, yes? I like that schmoozy talk from

There is a Lulu story of which you speak of finishing but which the

 

begining has not yet come to my server, no? So you will tell of Lulu and

 

her story and I will attention closely hoping to see both the begining and

 

the ending yes.

You're server did not get it, because my server did not send it, as

 

such. It is in the twilight of my outbox, where many things jeer in

 

finished halfness, like coats with one shoulder on the hanger. To look

 

in that closet is often to shudder and slam the door rather than to

 

choose which thing to straighten or burn first. Thus is it for Lulu's

 

story.
