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.



245 Point Zero?

Steve Jobs yacht was finished recently and it is said to be "between 230 and 260 feet".


That's a guess-ti-mate with a 30 foot gap, more than 10 percent of the average.

I think I wiLL start teLLing people I am between 4 and 7 feet taLL. Yes, I'm rich, I have somewhere between 500 and a billion dollars, and 0.5 and 1.5 wives.


While wandering outside in my backyard I invented something useful. Organic dental floss.

How? What? When? Huh?

I discovered that a piece of grass in my backyard makes an adequate dental scrubber. I took the outside layer off to get to the "clean" inside tiny circular relatively stiff shaft. Rub, rub, rub. Perhaps I should have taken a photo? No! A photo of the grass piece, not me actuaLLy using it, um, [no], you don't need to see that.


How Strange: I have worked on Portuguese for more than 30 years and just now discovered the word 'Lusophone'. It means someone who speaks Portuguese.

That discovery taught me another word: lusophobia - the fear of Portuguese

Yes! That's a real word! I can't wait to see my friend Lucy and teLL there is a new word I created "Lucyphobia" - the fear of Lucys. ActuaLLy, My Lucy of Spearman TX is veRy un-scary. She wiLL laugh when I teLL her this, I love her laugh.

I cannot appreciate this mathematical skill as I am too worried about Snooki. I wonder if they will keep the oddly sized vessel or sell her? Who would buy a boat of dubious size.

And I say enough on that subject.

fmcgmccllc: I actuaLLy gave away a few boats in the last few years. They were in the way, old, possibly of no value, and I am also unsure of their length. I think there were three of them. ReaLLy.

I added another section to my blog post after you read it .... I am a work in progress. Hmmm, that word has a nice ring to it, ah, progress. I think it is half of Brazil's motto. Ordem e Progresso.

I have read between 75% and 125% of your post Mr ESB. I know that reading 125% seems unlikely but I am reading between the lines, so I am adding something to take that into account.

I was wondering what happens if you 'Loose a Phone' in Portugal.

esbboston said...

Rob de Tobor: I read your last sentence of four twice, so I think that is 125%, if I didn't understand one out of four so that would be 75%. But then I looked back and saw there were three sentences instead of four, which means there is a 25% probability you should neVer trust anything iWrite.

I was just fixing to water the pineapples as soon as there is daylight here. I wiLL try to get a photograph of your pineapple plant up on the blog later today. It has several leaves that are longer than one foot. But I measured them approximately with my foot, so again, trust me only 95% on that one.

Earlier today when I was thinking about Mr Jobs big boat, I came up with a name for it: iYacht
When I speLL it that way my brain gets 35% confused and unfused and suddenly thought of yaks. (Why?)

To finaLLy answer your question with a question: Is it better to lose a phone or loose a phone to a party of geese in Brasil?

Badger said...

I think the length of the boat depends on the tide

Rob Z Tobor said...

I am not good with geese in Brazil but I did watch the movie and I remember all the geese were identical. In fact they all had the same goose step . . . . .

AHHAH haha hah hah ahah hah haahh hah hahah hahahahh.

I have a very good friend who is German, I must make sure that I can post this before I post it . . . . . DAMN hit the wrong button.

esbboston said...

Badger: I believe you are correct, plus 10% of the width.

esbboston said...

Rob: Brazil was a long time ago so I do not remember encountering any sheep during my two journeys. Sheep? oh, sorry, it was geese you were talking about, a different double ee animal, sorry. I had lunch with Jesus today at the diner and I am in the middle of writing a blog post about it. I told him hi for you and he said hi back. I got sidetracked the other day by serious events and didn't get a picture taken of your pineapple, sorry. HopefuLLy tomorrow. HopefuLLy I get to see my mom tomorrow too!

I just saw somebody from Wales on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, a guy named Jon Ronson. Have you ever met him or seen him in public?

Rob Z Tobor said...

Jon Ronson . . . . . .. No I have not seen him or met him but I do live next to some geese

esbboston said...

Rob: i just now noticed that you are vowel similar to him with first and last names: o-o-o.

I got his book yesterdayLost at Sea: The Jon Ronson Mysteries
