^that is effing brilliant, thanks for posting. I love the bit with the faucet.

Saturday is most and least.

eta: yes, that is the Blue's Clues guy with the black eye.
Watching this again, I find the appropriateness of the symbolism for remarkable in terms of what I mean to express. :)

To The Immortal Memory of the Halibut, On Which I Dined This Day, Monday, April 26, 1784

Where hast thou floated, in what seas pursu'd
Thy pastime? When wast thou an egg new spawn'd,
Lost in the immensity of ocean's waste?
Roar as they might, the overbearing winds
That rock'd the deep, thy cradle, thou wast safe--
And in thy minikin and embryo state,
Attach'd to the firm leaf of some salt weed,
Didst outlive tempests, such as wrung and rack'd
The joints of many a stout and gallant bark,
And whelm'd them in the unexplor'd abyss.
Indebted to no magnet and no chart,
Nor under guidance of the polar fire,
Thou wast a voyager on many coasts,
Grazing at large in meadows submarine,
Where flat Batavia just emerging peeps
Above the brine,--where Caledonia's rocks
Beat back the surge,--and where Hibernia shoots
Her wondrous causeway far into the main.
--Wherever thou hast fed, thou little thought'st,
And I not more, that I should feed on thee.
Peace, therefore, and good health, and much good fish,
To him who sent thee! and success, as oft
As it descends into the billowy gulf,
To the same drag that caught thee!--Fare thee well!
Thy lot thy brethern of the slimy fin
Would envy, could they know that thou wast doom'd
To feed a bard, and to be prais'd in verse.

-- William Cowper

well i, for one, certainly intend to overthink this question. as seems to be the style of the time.

craig johnston 11-08-2007 12:37 PM

The silicon chip inside her head.
Gets switched to overload,
And nobody's gonna go to school today,
She's going to make them stay at home,
And daddy doesn't understand it,
He always said she was as good as gold,
And he can see no reason.
Cos there are no reasons.
What reason do you need to be shown.

Tell me why.
I Dont't like Mondays.
I want to shoot.
The whole day down.

The Telex machine is kept so clean.
As it types to a waiting world,
And Mother feels so shocked,
Father's world is rocked,
And their thoughts turn to.
Their own little girl.
Sweet 16 ain't that peachy keen,
No, it ain't so neat to admit defeat,
They can see no reasons.
Cos there are no reasons.
What reason do you need to be shown,Br.

Tell me why.
I Dont't like Mondays.
I want to shoot.
The whole day down.

All the playing's stopped in the playground now
She wants to play with her toys a while
And school's out early and soon we'll be learning
And the lesson today is how to die,
And then the bullhorn crackles,
And the captain crackles,
With the problems and the how's and why's
And he can see no reasons
Cos there are no reasons
What reason do you need to die

The silicon chip ...

Tell me why...

trisherina 11-09-2007 12:21 AM

a straightforward, no nonsense matter-of-fact kind of day

Anna 11-09-2007 04:38 AM

can't decide

madasacutsnake 11-09-2007 06:56 AM

New question.

In which new hobby would you indulge, if you made "a bit more money"?

trisherina 11-09-2007 10:35 AM

Art collection.

auntie aubrey 11-09-2007 10:38 AM

borosililcate glasswork. i already do soft glass but you can only really create small things with soft glass. boro would allow me to work bigger with better colors. but in order to work boro you have to invest in a fairly hefty torch and a kiln to anneal the final product. that's a few grand right there. and then you have to burn an oxygen/propane mix, which means committing to buying oxygen in those large industrial sized tanks, which means you have to find a company that can supply the tanks and get on a delivery schedule, and which means you have to be able to build out the space to accommodate said tanks as well as proper ventilation to deal with the fumes given off by the oxy/propane and melted boro.

soft glass is so much cheaper. a couple of clamps, a hothead torch and a small cannister of map gas.

but oh, to work boro. my goal is to be able to make marbles and drawer pulls. i'm done with silly soft glass beads and ornaments.

brightpearl 11-09-2007 11:14 AM

Auntie and I have the same fantasy hobby. The similarities are starting to stack up. I'm starting to wonder if my existence is only an illusion and I'm really just a sock puppet of her imagination.
If I had more time as well as a little more moolah, I'd definitely do more arty crafty stuff.

It's not exactly a hobby, but I haven't traveled as much in recent years, and I really miss it.



lukkucairi 11-09-2007 11:37 AM

installation art.

Brynn 11-10-2007 06:06 AM

I'd take a welding class

Coffee 11-10-2007 06:42 AM

^^^Similar to above. Metalurgy: Welding/Forging/Casting/Machining. I'd like to be able to make anything out of metal.

Frieda 11-10-2007 07:33 AM

i'd get myself a garden somewhere

or a sewing machine and someone to teach me how to use it

or take a bob ross painting course

or a telescope with camera

or a racing car

or more lego and build the eiffel tower

or a wii with some nice games

or maybe an oven so i could make some clay artwork

or a nice pencil set for drawing

or star trek space ship miniatures that i can glue together

or maybe i would just use the money to buy new boots

so many things! :)

edited to add:

i would learn to fly an airplane, or a helicopter! yes!

brightpearl 11-10-2007 07:42 AM

Question for Saturday the 10th:

I heard something like this on the radio the other day...
What one thing in your home tells a story about you/your life? Don't feel obliged to tell the story, but at least identify the object.

I'll be out all day, so I'll go ahead and answer...I have a brick from Janis Joplin's childhood house on my front porch. Telling the story would reveal more than I want to say publicly, but there is one.

Hyakujo's Fox 11-10-2007 08:21 AM

you blew it up didn't you?

lukkucairi 11-10-2007 12:45 PM

I have a granite ballast stone from a 16th century sailing ship.

yes, yes, I blew it up.

auntie aubrey 11-10-2007 04:41 PM

this was a tough question, and i ended up considering it a sort of "what would you save if there were a fire" kind of thing. it's not a single object, it's a set. but i regard the set as a single object.

my mom's complete 40 volume set of the yale shakespeare, 1925

note: not my photo. my tablecloth is prettier.

as they said on the simpsons, it won't bring much cash but its sentimental value is through the roof.

T.I.P. 11-10-2007 04:52 PM

a camouflage colored bra pinned to the wall

eta: and no, i've never worn it

Stephi_B 11-11-2007 09:03 AM

New question for Sun, 11/11/07:

If you weren't born as human,
which other lifeform or (part of a) 'lifeless' being

(river, volcano, sound/tune/song, cosmic cloud, thought, electron, Scirocco wind, poem, ... list goes on to and includes ∞)
would you like to be then ?

Explain why, if possible.

Stephi_B 11-11-2007 10:17 AM

I'd like to be a tree cos I love trees, they fascinate me, hard to explain.
Dunno which tree I'd like to be and where: a birch maybe on the Spree shore in Berlin or somewhere out in the vastness of Russia, or an olive tree somewhere on the Mediterranean coast, or a baobab on Madagascar, or an eukalyptus tree in Australia, or a date palm in the Yemen, or ... ah doesn't matter, are all lovely :)
What a pity Ents ain't for real ;) cos then I'd like to be one

Eta: I'd also like to be a

georgeous animals and I like deserts :)

Nope, it was torn down without my assistance or approval.

Today's question is a toughie.

I think I might like to be a piece of green glass. Glass is technically a fluid, which I find appealing. Or a bird. I'd like to be a bird. Oooh, or a cherry tree....

Nope nope nope.
Oh, of course; how silly of me.

The ocean.

lukkucairi 11-11-2007 01:09 PM

shih ho! :D

either the tree or the rock. perhaps both.
