Since Stu left before I could get a drink, I think I'll make up a tootsie roll. Anyone else want one?

Shot or two of Kahlua, OJ and ice

Sounds horrible, sput. Try rootbeer schnapps and OJ..sounds funky, but is surprisingly good.

I'll have a Rum Caucasian.

Pike: maybe it's so obvious that it's allowed to pass without comment? Unlikely (since it failed to go unmentioned here), but possible.

Sure. It's not what they did, it's what I didn't let them do. Whiney, pantywaist, "I always get what I want types". Not from me! Ha Ha Ha. Play by the rules or don't play. Funny thing is they are paying me to say no. Shit

There must have been one, a moment, in childhood when it first occurred to you that you don't go on for ever. It must have been shattering--stamped into one's memory. And yet I can't remember it.

Another curious scientific phenomenon is the fact that the fingernails grow after death, as does the beard.

RG, that moment came pretty early on for me, I think it was in 5th grade science class. I was in a catholic school and everyday the promise of eternal life was pounded into us. And everyday I wondered how it could be. And then I knew. Yet, somehow I still seem to treat life like it'll go on forever.

Okay, last one, I promise...(lamely) unless I have a really good reason:



"The colors red, blue, and green are real. The color yellow is a mystical experience shared by everybody"--Demolish...

A man breaking his journey between one place and another at a third place of no name, character, population or significance, sees a unicorn cross his pat and disappear. That in itself is startling, but there are precedents for mustical encounters of various kinds, or to be less extreme, a choice of persuasions to put it down to fancy; until--"My God," says a second man "I must be dreaming, I though I saw a unicorn." At which point, a dimension is added that makes the experience as alarming as it will ever be. A third witness, you understand, adds no further dimension but only spreads it thinner, and fourth thinner still, and the moer witnesses there are the thinner it gets and the more reasonable it becomes until it is as thin as reality, the name we give to common experience...."Look, look!" recites the crowd. "A horse with an arrow in its forehead! It must have been mistaken for a deer"....

Mmm... nope. I've had *scads* of folks ask me "So. Why 'Pikey'." And then I go "Do you remember the movie 'Snatch'?" and then they say "Oh yeaahhh...".

So... yeah. You two are the first. Truly ye are blessed, or summat.

[sheepishly] Oh. sorry. I thought your comment about never hearing it was said with sarcasm. thus my reply. no offense intended, Pikey. I didn't realize you were serious! [/sheepishly]

Snatch is one of my I-can-watch-it-any-time-any-where movies...

Thanks for the ladder RG
