Feeling special, but I don't know why . . . [Dec. 31st, 2017|10:32 am]

By the time I left the Guild, the Starbucks across the street was closed, so I stopped at the McDonald's at Yale and Central to get a coffee I could nuke in the morning.  When I got to the window to pay, the Millennial working there said "Gerhfma schplurhdis floaogaswash."  When I had him repeat it he said "Gerhfma schplurhdis floaogaswash" again but it almost sounded like "Your order has be canceled."  "What?" I said and when he repeated "Gerhfma schplurhdis floaogaswash" for the third time, I could just make out "Your order has been taken care of."  I said, "Really?" and he nodded and ushered me through to the pickup window.  So I got my coffee for free.  But it wasn't a long wait or anything.  Cool.  I guess.

After rather extensive spiritual reflection, I'll bet it was the guy in the car in front of me who who paid for my coffee.  The guy I was cursing under my breath about the length of his transactions at the order box and the pay window---some people just can't seem to pinch it off.  Thanks, whoever you were.

A gynecologist had become fed up with malpractice insurance and HMO paperwork, and was burned out. Hoping to try another career where skillful hands would be beneficial, he decided to become a mechanic. He went to the local technical college, signed up for evening classes, attended diligently, and learned all he could. When the time of the practical exam approached, the gynecologist prepared carefully for weeks, and completed the exam with tremendous skill. When the results came back, he was surprised to find that he had obtained a score of 150%. Fearing an error, he called the Instructor, saying, “I don’t want to appear ungrateful for such an outstanding result, but I wonder if there is an error in the grade?” “The instructor said, “During the exam, you took the engine apart perfectly, which was worth 50% of the total mark. You put the engine back together again perfectly, which is also worth 50% of the mark.” After a pause, the instructor added, “I gave you an extra 50% because you did it all through the tailpipe, which I’ve never seen done in my entire career”.

Sing to me of procrastination,
real and imagined.
And don't fergit to be snotty about it,
'cause it's no fun when you're not.

Then sing to me of brain farts,
real and imagined.
And don't fergit to be elitist about it,
'cause it's no fun when you're not.

Amen, hey baby and all that shit!

. . . as we begin to wind down here, we're not devoid of accomplishments, though we're not exactly repleat with them, either.  In the words of the poet, "We did okay in a sort of a limited way for an off night."

Basebot: A person unquestioningly dedicated to a political tribe who will support a politician based solely on that politician being a member of the same tribe.  The politician's actions, history and character do not influence the basebot's support.  The politician's professed values alone trigger and sustain the basebot's support; those professed values are what make the politician and basebot members of the same tribe.  Nor does hypocrisy influence the basebot's support. The politician is free to act in whatever way he or she chooses as long as they espouse the professed values of the tribe.

I just ate the cleanest beans in Moroco, so why I should listen to you I don't know.
