A half-pedant

September 20th, 2016 by Vader

Like a half-wit, may be worse than none at all.

Worth working back to earlier chapters, if only for the statement:

The Gods do not like cheap signaling.

Sales are the Devil

September 19th, 2016 by G.

C.S. Lewis said that writing Screwtape was a strain.  It was spiritually dry, like writing with dust in his mouth.

Well, I just go asked to portray the Devil for a bit, and I had a blast.  (more…)

Milk

July 18th, 2016 by G.

2% milk is like non-alcoholic wine.

Skim milk is like [urine] in a bottle.

Resurrected in His Image

June 22nd, 2016 by G.

When we come up from the water we bear the Saviour upon our souls, on our heads, on our eyes, in our very inward parts, on all our members–Him who is pure from sin, free from all corruption, just as He was when He rose again and appeared to His disciples, as He was taken up, as He will come agin to demand the return of His treasure.

Thus we have been born; we have been stamped with Christ as though with some figure and shape.

-thus St. Nicholas Cabasilas.

He is referring to the Orthodox baptism, of course.  But it is true of our authorized baptism, and of the solemnities that occur in sacred places. (more…)

Pusillanimity

June 08th, 2016 by Bertie

Stiffen up the blood, Scott Adams, dash it!  Summon up the sinews!  When the many-headed begin to throw objects in a marked manner, then’s no time for a gentleman to imitate a dashed wee slinkit timorous beastie, if slinkit is the word I mean.  That’s not the stuff to give the troops.  Take a page from the Wooster book, old bean.  When a Wooster is faced with a little unpleasantness, going all the way back to the Crusades, we have always made a manly, dignified, sneak to the exit.

What Groucho Declaimed

May 31st, 2016 by G.

It is probably a milestone of some sort, though I do not know what, when one of your kids flags you down to share a few lines of poetry that caught her eye, while wearing Groucho Marx spectacles and mustache.

The Muse of Goobers Strikes Again

March 16th, 2016 by G.


Wear your bolo solo
and never in a pair.
It’s haute couture for those who dare
like models in their underwear.

Turquoise blue and silver too,
The bolo tie’s the tie for you,
Manly, rugged, and quite prieux,
You’re the cock-a-doodle-doo.
