Whenever is that 3rd edition coming??? -----------------------------------------------------------------
. . ."After tea she read them a story. They liked her stories. the one in the book was pretty awfull, but the Susan version was well received. She translated as she read. '...and then Jack chopped down the beanstalk, adding murder and ecological vandalism to the theft, enticement and tresspass charges already mentioned, but he got away with it and lived happily ever after without so much as a guilty twinge about what he had done. Which proves that you can be excused just about anything if you are a hero, becouse no one asks inconvenient questions. " . . .
. . ." 'Does it matter if you get the presents anyway?' she said, making a direct appeal to greed. '
Oh dear, oh dear. Susan sat down on the bed, wondering how the hell to get through this. She patted the one visible hand.
'Look at it this way, then,' she said, and took a deep mental breath. 'Wherever people are obtuse and absurd. . . and wherever they have, by even the most generous standards, the attention span of a small chicken in a hurricane and the investigative ability of a one-legged cockroach. . .and wherever people are inanely credulous, pathetically attached to the certainties of the nursery and, in general, have as much grasp of the realities of the physical universe as an oyster has of mountaineering** yes, Twyla: there is a Hogfather.' ". . .
And for those of you who thought I was really a great writer: This is from Hogfather, by Terry Pratchett
Its the little things that make me livid
Blue teeth,tuesday mornings,and a certain muppit,
they somehow seem to be meretricious
A pundit glancing surrepticous,
But, hedonistically, I turn to my pivot:
a 21 year old Glenlivet
A Dictionary, a dictionary,
be my best friend merry
Comes the time for it,
does aid me in my wit
Efficacious to a degree;
Finicky by decree
Gives a lingual ford,
heraldry strikes a chord,
in which I can tresspass safely,
joustling words humourously.
Kale, kangaroo and koalin
leave my face adorned with grin.
Muscle to my ignorance shield
No sooner it the answers yield
Over, under and up the page
pressing words to engage.
Questionnaire most easily,
reveales a certain propinquity
some to which I can effectuate
the unlimited supply of rhyme debate.
Unfathomable dephts for my lingual dismay.
Vacuous coulter, to you I just pray
Whithin all these pages I finally see,
Xenophobic, words can never be
Yates I truly am not
Zest though, I sure have a lot
With many many many thanks to <Half> for showing me the right way to editing.

There needs to be a quota for ideas posted on the Halfbakery. I simply do not have enough time to read them all. And lately the number of ideas per day seems to have increased. SMITE
Brother Crow has paid me a visit. Which is strange because I live in a city. he said to me:
Caw caw caw.
Unfortunately for him, or me, I do not understand it.
The world IS coming to an end. It will just take a few Billion years.
So I suppose that the prophecies are right, the're just of by a couple of milleniums.

"by attempting to create more rules. This, obviously, leads to nothing more than narrower, and more complex spaces between rules, which leads to a greater number of areas of uncertainty and, ultimately, to more lawyers."
This anno by [Calum] explains to me in the most eloquant way that the paradox of Zeno of Elea is still alive and kicking.
People who are attuned to the stars should be allowed to work during the night and sleep during the day. (and with help of [Worldgineer} ) able to drink during the early evenings. Thusly!
RANDOM THOUGHTS (will be updated regularly so those of you who actually read this, check this out first when it says "edited")
I am a LARP player (live action role play). It keeps me sane. I get to be exactly how I wanna be without the usual excuses (social behaviour). In this LARP game I play I am a druid with the faction Phoenix (fire). It shows the duality in my nature:
Tender nature (earth), nurturing, love of life)
Flaming spirit (fire within, hack, maim).
To illustrate this seemingly impossible biassness: I am the only druid in the faction since the founding, 10 years ago. In fact the head druid was rather surprised to hear I was with Phoenix and responded with "Finally!".
Now, I have recently begun a study of herbal medicine and it suddenly occured to me: Life is one big LARP game! The only difference being that in 'real life' I have to work for my money. But I can still enter groups (the P's again), biding my time untill I get to that point where I wanna be. This occured to me about 2 weeks ago and thusforth (word especially use for [wagster]) I have treated life as such. And it looks like it is paying off!
Only downside is that Phoenix is most about fighting and drinking but I'll work my way around that. (intolerance to alcohol seems to be improving by 1 beer per month).

I am going into hybernation for a month or so. I may not have been a halfbaker for long but I sure as hell am not going to waste my time with poeple who use ther ants 4 backwords ideas (sic). Maybe when school is back in or rather when THEY are back in it or in it for the first time, the level will go up again.
Or maybe the halfbakery is dying by its own succes. In which case I hope it follows the course of nature: Nurishment will be depleted and the breeding will come to a halt.
Enough with the ranting. Its boring even me.

I'm thinking Emma is going to be a great future halfbaker, the way she keeps trying to merge the playstation console with my hairclip.
And another idea bites the dust. So far Po has beaten me to it twice. By by baby-swiffer.

What a waste of energy."
