Quote from: ItsOver on Yesterday at 02:42:34 PMOK, I don't have anything else better to do tonight. I'll go watch some itchy gay guys.

Want to come along Pate? You bring the booze and I've got half a bag of Ruffles laying around here somewhere.
Quote from: albrecht on Yesterday at 02:52:52 PMRuffles seem suspect. This to be addressed at the SardineFest. What with the Ruffles when an original Lays could suffice.

I hope Pate doesn't get lost in the drive-thru again, picking up the booze.

I will not get lost in the drive-thru, this has never happened.  I think the incident you refer to was when I walked to the liquor store during my one of my GabCast co-hosting appearances, that was Great Radio btw.  That was roughly a two-mile roundtrip, and I think I did it in record drunken thyme.  (Someone will have to review the tapes to find out how long it took me to walk two miles and interact with the staff at the liquor store.  My guess is about half an hour tops.)

I happen to have a half bottle of Admiral Nelson's left, and was just about to head out for supplies to make coleslaw and potato salad.



I shall add another bottle of the Admiral's best to the list.

As to this mission of watching itchy gay guys;  I really have lots of shit to fix:  but I will go along as long as we can turn this to my KamPain's advantage somehow.

In order to blend in, the Admiral Nelson's will be used to make mojitos (a fancy version of Navy Grog that I have found to be very refreshing in this brutal MidWest heat-wave), and the chips must be:



...for reasons.  Y'all are both wrong with the Ruffles and Lay's.  Although, now that I think of it perhaps a combination of all three will also be good camouflage?

We will also need some sort of technology capable of defeating or rendering inoperable the Gay-Dar, or we will have to drag K_Dubb along as additional cover.

Hopefully, the establishment where these somewhat questionable observations are to take place both accepts BYOB and is capable of making a mojito (fresh mint isn't that common).

Hear, mission Musaks:


Thank you in Advance!  It is an honor to serve.

Grandpa had one of those big ones set up on kind of a tricycle-looking thing, I am sure it wasn't brought from Norway, he probably got it at a garage sale haha.  It's in my uncle's garage now.  But when you consider that for us peasant folk that was probably the only piece of worked stone on the farm you can imagine the relative cost of the thing, originally.  Even now, when archaeologists dig up low-status peasant dwellings, the burnt hearth and maybe a hand mill (kvern the source of our word quern of course) and a few postholes are all that are left.

Quote from: K_Dubb on Yesterday at 03:43:02 PMI don't know about millstones but grindstones in particular have a special place often being heirlooms acquired at great cost or a lot of hard work generations ago by some ancestor at and kind of a metaphor for time passing, honing the scythe for mowing which is where they got the most use, flower of grass cut down in its prime, with probably with some old smith-magic related to iron-working thrown in.  There is a famous old song on those themes, the grindstone waltz goes on and on, the flower doesn't know what is coming, ah you are the one turning the crank this year, etc.

Quote from: albrecht on Yesterday at 03:11:12 PMI saw some kind of show about 'tracking down' place of a Millpond painting. It actually was interesting as they experts tried to figure out authenticity and then location of such landscape. I think it was a sort of barnfinds or painting under painting deal? I forget. But also saw at Vesterheim that a certain emigrant later send money over to bring a millstone (family still back there.) What is it about millstones? Family legend of old had tales about a grindstone carried for miles on his back (Norwegian old long miles, not our miles) to meager family plot. I know Bible also frequently mentions mill and grind stones, in addition to other methods of sharpening or separating. Used as metaphors or just practicality. There is lots lost in urban culture and not understanding the value of herds, types of stones, and so on.

Quote from: Morgus on Yesterday at 03:26:30 PMMost of the callers last night sounded like they were claiming to have ancestors that were all royalty, Dukes and Princesses thruout Europe.
My ancestors were all dirt poor commoners in comparison.  I suspect thats the case for most folks, but not according to most of last night's callers!
Like the "past lives" people. Nobody a serf or poor dirt farmer. In their defense the rich and conquerors were also most likely to be profligate and also to be on record, due to land and financial deals. Or, the poor folks, counted for taxing and such.
ps; some cultures also keep good records for blood-feuds and/or religious reasons.

Syrett lets Cornelius call in during open lines too, even though all he does is talk about himself - telling about his bout with covid and his youtube video appearances.

Quote from: K_Dubb on Yesterday at 02:58:19 PMI shuld have moved to Yellow Springs, I could be dipping my toes in the millpond with an honest Young's Dairy ice cream cone instead of sitting here itching like a fiend


Absolutely. Paradise! Then you could have feasted like a king, having breakfast at the Clifton Mill restaurant, before taking a leisurely stroll through the bucolic downtown streets of Yellow Springs, contemplating just how beautiful the towering Maples will be this Fall.

OK, I have to run. Albrecht just reminded me I need to pick up some Dean's French onion dip. Watching gay guys itch is a bummer without enough dip for the Ruffles. I hope Pate doesn't get lost in the drive-thru again, picking up the booze.
