Stuff and Things

Apropos the previous post. My utter contempt for the people involved exceeded the scope of my Thesaurus. I don't think I've ever dropped 'f bombs' in a post before and I certainly do not intend to make a habit of it. 


Frequent commentor Ralph Lauren Polo Shirts makes an interesting observation... 

Send cause concoction towards large zip major naff plastic bag. Increase sirloin to successfully tote  

Well, it might be an observation. 

Of course, given that this faithful commentor has helpfully provide similar insights twenty times this weekend, my first impulse is to violate the promise made in the first paragraph.  It occurs to me however, that perhaps what I need is not a bigger thesaurus, but a cypher.  It could be that this is a coded message and all that stands between me and a great adventure is deciphering this! What if all of these comments, together form a sort of Rosetta Stone that has the potential to unlock the secrets of the Voynich Manuscript? Solving such a puzzle would have the potential to unlock wealth beyond the dreams of avarice. Formidable enemies would seek to suppress that disruptive information, but the potential to bring about a golden age of enlightenment would surely be worth the risk!
Heck, cute girls might talk to me!
If only...I hadn't deleted all those comments....
Once again I have sabotaged myself.


I may have to check out this show. Not only is this barista into military history, I hear tell she has good trigger discipline too!

"Wound my heart with monotous languor"

Maybe it's an open code.

2 I lose one point for spelling it wrong. "Monotonous"...

3 No, the spelling errors are proof that the sender has not been replaced by an enemy agent (assuming the errors are in the correct position).

4 Honestly, I'm a touch torn. Rize is pretty good in that show. That said, everything without her is -amazingly- saccharine, and she's just not in enough of it to counter the cloying sweetness.

The studio's previous show, Kin-iro Mosaic, had much the same tone, but under some of the cuteness lay some real edged wit (being a show about Japanese/English exchange students, they were perfectly happy to point and say "look, Japan, we are ridiculous here" or "hey gaijin, what is up with this thing you do?") I liked it a good bit better, so you'd think "same basic recipe plus a military kid" would be a winner, but I just don't think it came through.

5 Indeed, GochiUsa is much too overdone with the sweetness. It's not just Rize, but just about everyone. The only bearable character is Aoyama.

6 Don't worry about having deleted them, they will soon provide you with revised and improved instructions for wealth beyond the dreams of Avarice.  And I've met Avarice, he can dream BIG.
