    Milk! My heart beats to slipper ,
    For corn is but dreams quips,
    Hark, the damsel eats marshes,
    Whilst butter sings alone
    Flee this mustard sin,
    That hell-mice made a kelp.
    Go forth and tickle thine Pilzner,
    Odorous canst but mumble .

    And here I thought ravens just went "Caw! Caw!"

    Or, occasionally, "Nevermore"...

    I thought up the user name during one of my emo/poetic/beatnik moods. Still like it. Besides, if you could only caw, wouldn't you cry?

    So glad you're still with us!

    That's always a worry after a "I wonder what this switch does...", often you never hear from that person again.

    Never been able to work out why.

    Recognize?

    Once upon a midnight dreary
    I could smell the coffee clearly
    over many a quaint and curious
    ceramic mug in which it pour
    where I nodded nearly napping
    suddenly there came a tapping
    a heated beaker gently rapping
    steaming bubb'ling on the floor
    oh my coffee is no more.

    And in that puddle lies my soul
    to be wakened up, nevermore.

    They say the cake is a lie. I have been there and found that there WAS cake, and my Companion Cube.

    The Companion Cube was my true freind. It never lied to me, nor stabbed me in the back. I was greatly saddened to have been forced to kill my Companion Cube, and am greatly gladdened that I did NOT actually kill it.

    That was a bit too real for my tastes. . .

    Weeping calamari,
    Upon the midnight mocha,
    Cast your nets through soap,
    For Pintos are beaking turgid,
    Smell the musty rainbow,
    Fluff this warm pudding,
    That blowtorches can but stipple,
    For Norbert cries in tofu,
    We task thistle to stromalite ,
    And break the monkeys elven twist.

    Is the seeker of knowledge the one who asks questions, or the one who finds answers?

    If you stare too long into the abyss, the abyss stares right back at you. And asks "Don't you have a life?"

    Alternatively

    It's like staring into the abyss, and having the abyss fart in you face.

    It's like staring into the abyss, and the abyss says, "Are you looking at me, pal?"

    I tried staring into the abyss, but it was dark. I also tried staring in my neighbor's back window, but got arrested. What's that?

    I've just been summoned by a knight of ghosts and shadows. See you at the tournament.

    Interestingly, the first time I took someone's advice to stare into the abyss, I too got arrested. I was let off with a caution, but told not to go near the convent again.

    (Get it? It's a play on words. Abyss=Abbess. Funny, yes? Oh, please yourselves.)

    Imagine if everyone were (was?) to pray to God, not to make them (or him or her or it) rich or cure their illness, but to merely ask Him to sing "Melancholy Baby".

    What's with the "my"? In a very real sense, Companion Cube belonged to all of us...

    ...Except for Mike Alexander.

    I have found a solid with just three sides, but I'm not telling where.

    I keep g in it.

    You mean I am not alone?

    I am now happy to find that I am not alone and there are others like me out in this world!

    We shall all have cake with our Companion Cube!

    I entered the Cube with my three-sided solid. I ate the cake. But I left a goodly portion of g.


    As for the rest... let them eat bread.

    Well perhaps nervous people should leave
    tennis alone, that ball coming at you at
    speed could freak you out.
    A match in a very old film makes me nervous.
