Wordy Wednesday

Quote of the Week
I write to have quick you. He’d drown! Now, I don’t kno, he hatessed I again? VE, I mean pee/poop system? AAAAAAAAGGG... with the disting motion. Ith the dungeon. I put hot I mean gorgency evaculties before I was ting subject fore I was diag, stuffed against a generat freakince I havery step? Married I'm martners in lunacy logsitting at Ording too much would M-eye. Oh wait, I their business do not like to ask to WHY you wer since I waiting for the a little sing to music in my comfy car. [From Bee's Musings]

I was playing with "dissassociated press", which is a silly computer thing that takes text and mangles it randomly. The above is part of the result when fed a couple of day's worth of Bee.


Stuff

I've been spending the last few evenings doing geeky stuff with my laptop. I was up until around 3ish on Saturday night, and I still haven't finished tinkering. I was thinking about going to the pub tonight, but then Jean Knee complained about there not being any Wordy Wednesday, so I decided I'd better stay in and do one. Not that I mind, of course, Jean Knee. Don't feel guilty about depriving me of a social life or anything...

Actually, before I feel guilty about making Jean Knee feel guilty, I probably wouldn't actually have gone. Well, maybe not.


Spot the Difference


I'm sure you've seen this already. Some lumps in the bottom left hand corner of the trench vanished. I think this might be mischievous Martians, but the boffins reckon that it was ice that melted, and that this might indicate that there is or was life on the Red Planet. Now, if the ice had been in a glass of Gin and Tonic, that would definitely be a sign of civilisation...

FIRST!

Wow. I think the quote makes more sense to me now taken out of context! See how cool I am? ;op

Bee said...

Why the heck is VE in there! He's a tormentor that's why!

Jean Knee said...

go go go, it's not too late to pub hop, I have to go play my little pony beauty parlor (my favorite)

Bee said...

Maybe you should send them (whoever is doing the Mars exploring) your Mars story.

Bee:

I don't know why VE is there - I might have copied and pasted some of the comments as well or something...

Jean Knee:

No, it's not too late, but I've got an expensive few weeks coming up, not to mention Helena's birthday. And more importantly, I'm busy rebuilding my laptop for the third time this week.

So I'll settle for some Scotch.

Bee:

Perhaps it would be better if I disassociated pressed it first...

don't get me started on that space stuff, what a waste of money.

Jean Knee said...

egads on the Bee paragraph, I thought I was reading something by Lewis Carroll.

Brian o Vretanos said...

Dan:

I know, I know, they could have saved a lot of money by looking for ice cubes in their freezer...

Jean Knee:

Except that Lewis Carroll's stuff makes less sense. If only he'd been alive in the era of computers (and Bee)...

I started reading the top and thought "Oh my, Brians gone all smarter than me again" then I found out that it's Bees stuff all jumbled together.
Do mine. Do Mine!

Is there something wrong with your laptop or do you just enjoy taking it apart?

Tracy said...

Oh and eleventh!!

Tracy:

My laptop has become my experimentation machine, so I'm really just tinkering. I've not got it installed in Greek...

Brian o Vretanos said...

Should be "now got it installed", not "not". Not that anyone noticed, I bet.

3 not's in a row...

Did you put your last comment through the jumble machine?
