Checking Out

Hi y'all! Sorry I haven't posted in a day or two, but doing the marvelous photoessays for a certain someone ought to count. *grin*

And now when I do check in, it's to tell y'all I'm checking out...headed off to my Super Secret Out Of State Squirrel Location for a few days. The certain someone referenced above will be pleased to note that I heeded her wise counsel and stayed an extra night in town instead of making the banzai, middle-of-the-night, I'm-only-awake-because-my-eyes-are-too-tired-to-blink, run (for you puzzlers out there, I'm going about 6 hours from home in a direction unspecified), because she was right; when she last saw me I was too worn down to make it. I realized that when I got ready to carry something else up to the van and simply couldn't make myself get up the steps. (Gloating in my comments by aforesaid comrades will result in deletion, bannination, and no more Alice, ever.)

I just have to pack up my wraps and my sneakers and I'm ready to go...the cats have a sitter, everything is pretty much set up and ready to go. The cats smell that something's up, but they'll deal with it.

Except for the fact that this will be my longest solo road trip of record, I think I'm finally actually happy to go. I always have a good time in my SSOoSSL, but leaving for anywhere, even PUF (perhaps an hour from home) usually involves forgetting many useful things and remembering ones with no practical application. If I need a yoga mat or a Stephen King novel or a clean t-shirt while I'm out of town, I'm OK. Anything else is negligible to iffy. Except spare headlight bulbs and fuses. Those I have. Also an eyeglass screwdriver. Map? Not so much.

Anyhow. I absolutely have to go to bed if I'm going to get up and on the road at the time the Ambitious Me (and the Very Ambitious Out of State Secret Squirrel) has decided will be best. I'm not sure of the connectivity there, but if I can give you a SSU while I'm there, I will. If not, see y'all by this time next week at the absolute latest.

Once upon a time there was a little bunny called ALICE! ALICE! did not like the nomorealiceever stories because when CDHMommy would type about them, she could not be giving ALICE! all her attention. One day, ALICE! - after knocking over the ashtray, and before breaking the bottle of cinnamon shnapps and getting drunk - decided that there must be something done about the nomorealiceever stories. So she thought of a plan. ALICE! called Parce the next morning - with a hangover - to tell Parce that she had Parces EK, and that if she ever wanted to see the EK again, she must stop telling nomorealiceever stories. Parce was very sad, because she had already promised MWN that she would tell another when she returned from her secret squirrel location. Parce told ALICE! that she loved her kitty very much but that she had promised MWN and had to keep her word. ALICE! got very angry. She hopped angrily over to the EK and told EK that she was fat and lazy and no good. Well, EK hadn't used much energy in the past few years - she WAS lazy - so she reached into her energy reserve - which was quite large - and kicked ALICE! clear to the Nashville Electric Service building. ALICE! was very sad. All she wanted was for everyone to do her every bidding. She looked up at her surroundings, and - lo and behold! Sir Williams was by her side! He said: "Look kid, I hate you. Actually I hate everything. But I could use your help with this. If it works, then the nomorealiceever stories will stop to. Hell, we both win in this. Whatd'ya say?" ALICE!'s eyes squinted, and she thought of all the love and attention she would get if there was no electricity. "O.K." ALICE! said. "Let's do it!"
And so Sir Williams and ALICE! - with the help of Baby Bunnys' sharp claws, and Sir Hastings sharp - err - carrot shaped organ, the entire state of Tennesse lost it's power for all eternity, and the bunnies lived happily ever after.


So folks, the moral of the story is this: Never eat a banana if you've ever had sex.

CDHSarah...stop smoking crack. Now. We'll pick a theme when I get back, for godsake.

Having a lovely time, be home soon!

Electricity is good. How 'bout you leave it for Memphis? That way I can still read old nomorealice stories, even if there aren't any new ones.

Thanks, CDH! I liked the story.
