You could email Knecht, but I can't tell you that it would help you be where you're supposed to be four days from now. The gentleman doesn't respond to evening emails. Either that, or I'm Papau New Guineau at Sifu and Blume's thing. Which I couldn't exactly blame them for.

Yes, she's fine. The surgery was Tuesday and she's recovering comfortably--or, as comfortably as possible in a hospital room. Nothing life-threatening, or anything like that. Still, I think her plan for the weekend involves me sitting quietly by the foot of the bed, bringing her jello and whatever else she wants, not my going off to parties.

Well, I don't think I'd mentioned it before, so don't feel bad about it. I should note that this was a good thing--it was a scheduled procedure that should help her out a lot. So while it's a pain, especially for her, it's not a crisis, especially now that the actual cutting part is in the past.

i was imagining in the summer that i'd attend the KR&F's party, can't make it, sorry
the other day my sister asked me whether i know someone with silvery hair, or a beard or just a lot of hair
she's been worrying about me coz i always complain about things generally, so asked an acquiantance, a shaman it seems, what bugs me etc and he asked her to ask me that question and told her that i'll know what to do and like beware someone with 'great hair' in his words
i know noone fitting that description irl and interpreted that someone with silvery hair's LB's sister since she's the only person i met who is related to unfogged, with beard - JE, great hair - BW or it could be ogged with his back hair, in short, he like diagnosed my unfogged addiction maybe, so suggestible
it's kinda unbelievable though that somebody thousands miles away can read one's mind
/a joke, but the shaman really told that and i'm like a bit paranoid about some hypothetical hairy stalker

Dr. Oops does have great hair (silvery, and there's a whole crazy lot of it), but I can't see much point in bewaring of her, given that she's in another state and all and pretty harmless, except to the already technically dead people whose organs she harvests.

Probably the "malcon-" kind.

In seriousness, I am undecided about whether to erect the glorious Ruprecht party tent, given that a tropical storm might strike the area.

After I exhausted her patience with the tent, Fleur swears she wants to make firewood out of it and buy a factory-made one from Costco, so maybe Sifu and I can negotiate a deal to acquire the tent..

Brock sends regrets on the grounds that his in-laws are in town ("What better time?" I asked him).

Arthegall has gone into deep cover in the McCain campaign, and will not resurface until his work as a saboteur is complete. (When you hear McCain use phrase "Don't you go gettin' all up above your station, boy" in the first debate, you'll know that his work was successful.)

My in-laws live in Florida.

That's an easy one. Just convince them that the electronic voting machines are hacked to take every vote for Obama and record it as two votes for McCain, so if they really want to do their guy a favor, they should vote Obama.

Alternatively, tell them that the Dems have cooked up a really devious scheme in revenge for the butterfly ballot, whereby old people who can't see very well will be unsuspectingly lured into voting for Obama. You can't explain the details, but they should know that the oval next to McCain's name is actually for Obama and vice versa.

When is the last train inward? My folk's place is about 20 min away, in case of emergency.

Also 20 min away is the best Pho in New England. Not that Knecht gives a fuck.

Our hurricane is kind of lame, and won't be up to y'all until the wee hours. Have fun and post pictures.

Knecht, continuing on 102, Sir Kraab would like to advise that if you are not online, please refrain from checking your e-mail.

Hanna the Hurricane is now but a weak, yet very wet, tropical storm. Lots of localized flooding around DC. I was out earlier and saw that Rock Creek below CT has gone over its banks, but that is not unusual.

Very wet is right. When I go outside, my glasses fog up. Hope this party is still happenin', because I'm about to get on the road.

Hanna has finally blown through DC. It wrapped up with strong winds and then the sun shone through breaks in the clouds.

It's sunny here in VA, but after a good amount of rain last night, there's a little hole in my basement floor shooting up a constant, if small, jet of water, which is a bit troubling.

We're still waiting for it to start raining here on the MA islands. Forecast calls for 8 foot seas tomorrow when we take the ferry, that will be a pleasant ride.

Is it wine? Should I taste it?!

Put your finger in the dike.

Meh. I'm just a renter. The landlord can come stick his finger in it if he likes.

More like egg-drop soup, I hear.

111. Oooh. That sounds unfun. Sailing that in a small boat is jolting. On a big Steamship Authority ferry that could be nauseating.

Dude! I've never gotten a present from somebody who's name I don't know before!

And the powerpoint! The powerpoint was amazing.

Okay! Back to the brandy.

I will excuse "who's" since you seem to be drinking brandy, damn you.

Post drunkenly! And then we can all watch young Ben fail to resist the temptation to correct your grammar and spelling.

We were inspired by your cob logger's great Keyboard Kommando Komix, Sifu.

Say, it sure has been a long time since he's done one of those. Surely someone as influential as you could put a word in his ear?

I've been trying, M/tch. I've been trying so very, very hard.
