I'll post it if I survive

And we promise we'll find the news story and start a thread for it if you don't. In Crash and Burn, I suppose.

And we shall post on it with great sadness, as well as laughing. But a very mournful laughing.

But, hopefully you live and post it. good luck!

A sort of subdued mirthfulness, shall we say?

I'm thinking the kind of wistful glee found at only the best wakes.

I'm authorising the use of full and complete mirthfulness if it happens.

Thank you, because it was likely to happen anyway, but for our sake, please try not to die, since then what would we have to look forward to next year? Sure, US politics might be totally screwed up, UK is heading there too, nature might be about done, but there will be Snopester at the Moomba Birdman to look forward to. Well, I guess we could just send GenYus, but I am not sure he is up to death defying stunts. He seems more likely to risk his life by using horrible puns.

If Gutter Monkey dies during a knight jump, I would not be so cavalier as to make a horrible pun about it.

Would you carry that through to the end, or would you simply punt it until after the funeral plus a suitable, fully mirthful, period of mourning?

As it turns out, I ended up going home with a migraine of sorts yesterday, so I'm putting the non-recognition down to the headache.

As of 9 last night, the cat was hanging on, but it didn't look good.

Wishing luck to the cat, a quick end to Seaboe's migraine, and that there will not soon be an end to Gutter Monkey.

(Well, aside from the ends that GM's already got, anyway.)

I was told in the most demeaning and insulting rlterms yesterday that we need to find a new place to live. I'm numb and a bit paralysed. I don't know how to start or which way to go. I would like to go into income based age restricted housing. HUD's closed up, the waiting list could be very long, and DH doesn't want to get rid of his metric ton of stuff. He's talking about buying a house. Just....no.

I just went to the most elaborate pub quiz I've ever seen. It actually had (among other things) a quiche round. Not just questions about quiche - they had baked four different quiches, each with four unique ingredients (for a total of 16 ingredients) and your team got a slice of each quiche and had to determine which four ingredients from the list of 16 were in each slice, with a point for each you got right...

I thought of hijacking the Tuesday Trivia thread but, well, what's the point of this thread other than to avoid hijacking other things?

Our team did quite badly, and not just on the quiche round. We did win several bags of Haribo despite that, though - one of which I'm still not sure how we won.

Might, maybe....don't wanna' get my hopes up. Have a double wide in a very nice and we'll maintained mobile home park. We (if we get it) would own it. It needs some work on the inside, but that would give DH stuff to do. I hate moving.
