The Time Has Come

the Walrus said,
"To talk of many things:
Of shoes -- and ships -- and sealing-wax --
Of cabbages -- and kings --
And why the sea is boiling hot --
And whether pigs have wings."

We have come to a point in our original agenda, where we would reconnoitre the lay of the land so to speak and determine whether or nay we might continue in this project. Methinks energies have dropped off -- though blogger has been on the fritz on and off for about a week and commenting may have been difficult. So maybe I misread the circumstances.

Kindly check in with how we be with Revelation. And if some other tome would move you -- suggest it.

I've been very bad, mea badda! Got sucked into a bit of a snitfit on a mailing list I should probably dump, went into a Civilization frenzy (and still don't know if I'll conquer all those awful opponents by 2050, made a big batch of Where-No-Person-Has-Gone-Before Chili and haven't been commenting. Even though this has all been pretty interesting, and we're just tuning up for the beasties.

I'd made up my mind, this morning I was going to once more attempt to wrap my mind around this grotty stuff. With an election coming that won't save us, but could sink us further into the pit, if this goes on.

If all this has been too distasteful for the others, I suppose we could go for something that suits them better. I'd stay with it myself, but you might well feel I should comment or get off the pot.

Hiya! Thanks for checking in.

You hadn't been posting to your own blog either so I wasn't sure what was up. And a sI noted -- over the last 2 weeks blogger has been pretty hit and miss for postability anyway.

I really haven't felt too inspired myself lately -- winter's settling into me bones I think.

Do you recommend Civilzation? I was looking at a marked down game in the store the other day and wondering if it might be fun.

Civilization? You negotiate with simulated leaders from all these wonderful civilizations, end up having brutal wars with them and come to loathe them all. It's fascinating, and probably you shouldn't touch it. Take up go instead (The FAQ at can point you to a good tutorial) and it may even be good for your character.

I must be jet-lagged by the time change, or going into hibernation; easy to say "I should ___" and hard to care. Anne just had a bug; it might be trying to get a grip on me. Just a temporary glitch in my head, waiting to understand all this better myself.

Spam comment deleted. Not only was it spam -- it was spam with a dead link.

I thought the whole point of trying to convert us heathens to The Truth with these things was to direct us the place The Truth lived.

Or maybe the deadlink was a part of the point and I missed it.

Maybe I need another coffee.

some other tome would move me -- suggest it: Mark.

Hmm. Possibly. I'm in the muddle of a bible study on the Kingdom of God at the local United Church so for me it might prove repetative (we're focussing on parables seasoned liberally with miracles). But I might endure it. The church bible study will likely be laid down by end of November and we won't get far into Mark before then.

Let's see where others are.

If there's no juice here for anyone else, I really don't want to be doing it all alone with a heap of commentaries. Whatever suits the others is fine. (& I did add some more to my home blather.)
