Absent For A Bit ....

I am away for a little while working on a few or more episodes for The Adventures of My Space Alien Alter Ego story ... will return (to Earth) soon!

Notice: Blogger has screwed up and lost a bunch of photos out of my blog! They are replaced with a gray silhouette of a human head. I will eventually get them replaced with the correct photo, it may take a while to find and fix everything. So some of my stories don't make much sense without their photos, sorry for the inconvenience.



The Day I Became A RAT (Yesterday)

I found out yesterday, January 18, 2012, a day that will live in inflamy, that I became a member of a small elite online group call RATs without applying or even knowing that RATs eXisted. It stands for:

The Radical Abstract Thinkers of cyberspace

The leader of the group is named Robo Z Tobor of Wales. He liked some of my work on figuring out how to remove lifetime paint from human skin, blue paint in particular that was part of his space alien costume.

This is what Robo wrote: (blue text) (I am the person "Mr ESB" in his text)

As almost none of you know or wish to know or care about some time ago I started the small elitist cyberspace group called The Radical Abstract Thinkers (RATs). A group who I feel have that slightly quirky way of thinking that leads us to look at the world in a slightly different way. So far there are three of us Myself because it is my gang NA NA NA NA NA NA NA, then Miss Lilly and then Mr H..... I will get some links here when I have a bit more time, right now I am in the middle of Car Mechanics at school and we have just hot wired the headmasters car.

Anyway I have decided to add a new member to the group. He has no choice in the matter once you're in you're in until I say you're not in, then you are out. So our new member is Mr ESB I feel his logic on lifetime paint shows great promise and so there you go Mr ESB but remember we need to see this new logic reflected in your own blogs so no more sensible stuff or else.

Aww Rob Z, you put the first smile on my face today. Honoured that I'm still a member of 'RATS,' especiallly along with the wonderful Mr.H.

May I be the first...well second because you've already welcomed him first, therefore rendering the, 'may I be the first,' part of this particular sentence rather redundant, Mr Esbboston to this illustrious group, that no one else knows about.

Right I'm off, got people to do and things to see...I think that's right. :)

Well, I ... Am just ... so hum bled, which is a fractured form of humbled to be included in your group, to be the Fourth. So that is the Ringo Starr of numbers, right?

If its any help in the 'proof' department of strange ideas and logic, I am offering wikipedia service for the English language while wikipedia has decided to turn itself off for 24 hours. I can be global like that. It reminds me of the time as a chemist when I certified all the 80 Octane Fuel for my company which then sold that fuel as a knock engine calibration to all the other companies in the world that did that sort of thing. I believe the time period was about seven years. So my superhero name would be IC8NC7 Man. Or you can call me 'Ringo', as I know how to get by with a little help from my friends.

My Third Response at Jan 18, 2012 07:59 AM
I just realized that you could have palindromes for names if you changed your middle name to an O word giving 'Rob O Tobor' or if you like your Z name and wish to go to four legal names like I have, ESBB, then you could add 'Ot' as a second name which would the produce Rob Ot Z Tobor. As the word 'robot' is from the Czech word for 'work' or 'worker', I would say this works for me. Unless having a backwards robot undoes the work of the forward robot, we could ask Will Smith the actor.


MOV said...

I am so envious. I am not a RAT (Radical Abstract Thinker), nor have I ever qualified to be called one. I am more of a SPLAT (Sleepy Person Looking At Things). You can see how this has gotten me very far in life.


esbboston said...

Oh MOV, you could start your own group where the M of the acronym MOUSEs stands for MOV. I will let you determine what the OUSE remainder should be. You are so precious to me MOV, even if you can never *sigh* be a RAT. (I must now return to the kitchen where my hardly boiled eggs are alla-most-ed finish-ed ,,,wait for it : DING the timer goes off and on and off and on and off and on (pause) repeat ad nauseum ...

MOV: So by now I am sure that you are wanting, just dying, for my recipe for hard boiled eggs: So here goes.

Boil for eggs 8 minutes.

Let stand in water of the boiling pot now turned off for 5 minutes.

Then let stand in cold (45 F) temperature water for 3 minutes.


Sprinkle with garlic powder, salt and pepper,


My elevation is about 3,100 feetsies above sea level, so adjust cooooking times to your elevation, of course,


live dan-ger-ous-ly, La Vida Loco

MOV: I just realized during the peeling of the first egg that IF you included me in your group, I could be a RAT and a MOUSE, now just how cool is that?

eXperiment in gastronomical science: I just tried V-8 Hot and Spicy with my hard boilded eggs, and what is my report? YES!!! Triple eXclamation mark, baby, YES, el supreme-mo. Houston, This is Tranquility Base, we have a new food combo, let the parades begin, Columbus has discovered America level of sa=I=sfaction, The New World of my Taste Buds are just so happy.

I like my eggs with a slightly runny yolk, so that it merges into the white just a little when I chop it onto my toast (that has been buttered with lots of butter) and then I sprinkle it with salt. Don't you hate it when you follow a recipe and get to the last step and find out you were supposed to to something back in the middle somewhere that they neglected to mention?

esbboston said...

Julie: I have a tendency to read through entire recipes before I do anything. I have a tendency to be trepidatious with recipes and want to know why the ingredients are in there, in their amount and the chemical functionality. But that's just because I am a chemist.
