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.



Excess Duckage

I have an excess of ducks.

A semi-long time ago (around Christmas) I watched the first season of Duck Dynasty on a DVD that was my son's Christmas present. I enjoyed it so much that I pre-ordered the second season. But then I forgot about this pre-order. Since that time I upgraded my cable teleBision and the second season has been playing several times. Then yesterday I got an email teLLing me that my second season DVD is coming.

What makes this so terrible is that I think the first season was wonderful, but the second season seems a little more fake and contrived. I have enjoyed Uncle Si, though, he is delightfuLLy insane. I know someone in real life who is almost just like him. I won't mention any names, but I wiLL say he is a goat rancher.


You know it is going to be an interesting day when you mess up counting to five. And the game isn't reaLLy that hard ....

I love it when something that accidentaLLy looks like a plan comes together.


Another Five: I saw a picture where someone had constructed two large human shaped feet out of snow, maybe a couple meters taLL. There was a caption on the photo: "Another Two Feet of Snow"

INVENTION: So we should start measuring in Toes as a unit of length. Look how easily it allows us to convert to the metric system - 10 toes equals two feet. I suggest TZ for the unit abbreviation. 5x5280 = 26,400 TZ per mile. So the distance to the sun would be 2.455 trillion TZ, and if the number of people on earth is 7 billion times 10 toes, that would be 70 billion toes.


Good-Bye Mr. Hugo Chávez. It is probably a quite siLLy thing to blame your death on a secret US government plot to kiLL you with cancer. If the White House would have tried you would have been gone a long time ago. Maybe the people of your country can be free soon.

I have not seen Duck Dynasty but I did notice the music and thought of this


A goat rancher is interesting bearing in mind today's events here I will explain later.

I have a tow rope I'm sure it is some sort of regulation length, maybe we could measure the speed of cars in Tow Ropes Per Minute.

I heard of the death of Mr. Hugo Chávez and the conspiracy theory, My own is based on the perfume wars of Central America and the attempt to undermine the sales of Hugo Boss.

It's no two feet of snow, but we have snow people sitting on benches here in Minneapolis.

They remain delightfully intact. :-)

We haven't seen Duck Dynasty over here. I will catch up when I get there.

Rob: I wiLL have to think about Tow Ropes now. I wiLL probably not make any videos involving my toes, so as to not scare anyone

Pearl: I saw your word "delightfully" and thought of a new meaning for delight as in "to remove or extinguish a light source" - so de+light+fully would mean to totaLLy endarken something. As per our previous conversation, I hope you are warm. Then neXt time I hear that someone is cold I wiLL think of you.

Badger: It should be pretty easy to get caught up. I forget which cable channel they are on -looking-> Yes, they are on the A&E Channel. It is becoming quite popular just about the time I am losing interest. This is from wikipedia:

The February 27, 2013 two episode Season 3 premiere tallied 8.6 million viewers, including five million in the Adults 25-54 demographic and five million in Adults 18-49 demographic, making the premiere the most watched telecast in network history, beating the Season 2 finale from December 2012.

Rob: Sorry, I meant to type Toe Ropes to be confusing and accidentaLLy wrote Tow Ropes.
