Well, that was a rush!

To my knowledge, he did not go on that Most Holy Quest. He may have done so incognito; that's been known to happen. But he never revealed himself as having done so.

january1may wrote:Kieryn's image is still a spoiler.
Which one? Where? He's still around and would most certainly make the appropriate alteration.

january1may wrote:PhoenixRising is/was a blitzer?
Yes indeed. He felt a deep void in his soul; the kind that can only be filled by drinking from the river of the One True Thread. Since he had already read all of some sections, his Quest only covered the parts that gave him that Deep Empty Feeling, and could also be termed a condiment. However, it was seaish (at least for those days - nowadays a hundred NewPage gap is practically in the present!) we do not judge the Holy Calling to which some OTTers are drawn.

You will soon see... well, I won't tell you. It's still as far in the future to you as the Beginning Of Time is in the past.

january1may wrote:You already have BlitzGirl, I think - why the ch*rp you aren't getting punsawed yet?
BlitzGirl was once a Saul of loose linguistics. The bag incident (I don't think you're reached that) filled her with such seaish remorse she broke with her past linguistic contortions and she now sails straight and true. You could say she just cut it out.

january1may wrote:You doge, I put a sandcastle in your sandcastle so sandcastle wow sandcastle. Did I do this correctly?
Close. The ni ni ni chupacabra form is:
"You doge, I put a sandcastle in your sandcastle so you can sandcastle while you sandcastle."
Or it's not. :)

BlitzGirl wrote:But why do I suddenly crave pancakes?
(There's a Russian saying that literally means "what a pancake", used roughly in the context where an OTTer would say "ch*rping m*stard". But I doubt it has anything to do with BlitzGirl's cravings...)
She's done so much timey wimey rippling you can't be sure!

edit: Hmmm... Pope again. Isn't this BlitzGirl's place?

I decree that poetry in unfamiliar forms we see...
that rhyme be laid, and meter made, in jolly ottish repartee

for we are blessed, I would suggest, with seaish skills in language arts
which put to use in ways abstruse to postings here an air imparts

that lifts it high in ways whereby, enriched the reader will become.
I this decree, although I see in many ways this could be dumb.

I generally have the TV on, and am roughly following that, and am time-slicing various internet things, and perhaps also on a conference call. I sometimes deliberately play games while on conference calls, as that keeps me from trying to read emails. These days most of my parenting is just opening doors for Wolpies, but when the kids were little I'd also be paying some attention to their health and well-being. I squeeze some chores in there too. Conference calls are perfect for folding laundry. Vacuuming, not so much.

Very well...


So classically do we begin
Once upon a Time
Ocean levels start to climb
Exponentially the crowd increases
As the stick figures also climb.
The climax also fast approaches
Grand applause: the end of Time!
'Thank you's and ice cream plenty shared
Look back at the religion started
All the grand things loved and lauded
In each and every OTTer chimes!
Look at all the grandiose creations
Art and writing, poems, hymns.
Nothing left but reminiscing
Or maybe going back to blitz
All that's left is our inertia
Progress slow, though still sublime.
Plenty happened even after the
Devestating end of Time.
But time between each post is growing
The basement too is overflowing
A dreadful deadly silence growing:
Too much space between the rhymes!
But now and then a cute resurgence
Time after time and festive hats
Punsaws, jigsaws, brief time-outs,
But waiting slow is not a crime...
Still it seems that silence grows
No matter how vicious the struggle
We may not stop but must we slow?
Till posts come slo'er than newpix prime
Till mortality gets the best of us
newpixbot alone would tinker on
Until 1747 comes along
Though such depression seems unfounded
I mean, wouldn't we still wait for it?
After all, we have the time.

Ehh, not that good, but it's spur of the moment, someone else should take my rhyme scheme and do better

Behind this poor bard,
The molpies still guard

Alas the BlitzGirl disappeared
just as all us otters feared.
But maybe she'll return anew
She seems to be the otter's glue.

Despite the punsaw's toothy threat
(which otters all dare not forget!),
to see our BlitzGirl passing through
is like a touch of morning dew.

Though tiny, dewdrops make the sea,
and all of us in jubilee
are molpish seeing each of you.
But that, of course, all otters knew.

That's a bit more raptor than molpy I'd say :shock: ...but you made that? Treeish! But seriously, America, stop hogging all the snow! We haven't had any at all yet here this winter (apart from in the mountains)... I want to build a snowcastle :(

Yyyyep. This is actually only our second snow this year, here in Rainymiptown we only get it when a cold front is trading places with warmer wet air from the 1, which means that we get about a week of cool, clear weather followed by a dip or so of snow as the water finally cools enough to do that thing, then warm (40-50F, which I think is around 13-17C if my sense of conversion between those is sound), cloudy weather for a while. Snow usually melts by the second or third dip. It was actually above freezing the entire time I was building that, which made sculpting a bit difficult (but rolling the snowballs really easy!)

Indeed. The south is doing its best to recreate the Flood, but we've had none of the good kind of frozen skywater. I have to keep explaining to my non-native colleagues that we have weather, not a climate, so it may or may not snow anywhere from Visitation Ja to late Innocence.

I've dispatched a hamply with some panther salve for BlitzGirl.

Converting to Centigrade in your head
the thing to do:
subtract 32
then times it by five ninths so you get:
just 4 - 10
but then again
It would be much faster to round to half
(after you
subtract 32)
Solving for this case just for a laugh:
gives 4 - 9
quite close to mine.

I am lazy enough that I usually ask Google what it is. If you enter "40 F to C" it'll tell you it's 4.444 C.

What you say is true.
That's something you could do.
But with syllables galore,
I had trouble fitting 4.444.

Speaking of temperature,
it was three degrees C out
when I decided to shout
Time for an adventure!

I went on my bicycle
to the sea, which is big,
(as stated in many a sig)
and a sort-of-a-sandcastle

I took pictures for you,
it was really quite fun
though I had trouble with the sun
(it's been long overdue)

I saw many wolpies on a beach
my count, nearly forty
none were being naughty
an important skill to teach

The sea does what it wants
down south that means flood
with rivers of mud
but here calm, no response

now I'm really quite tired
writing poems, experimental
when I'm all ready mental
to molpy down is required

Sorry that my absence has been like unto the sea;
I'm curled up on the sofa because I'm a sick molpy.
Originally left to make a Present post milestone,
But now I've got steambottlish cold that chills me to the bone.
So here's an easy crossword for you lovely folks instead;
I'll ketchup soon when I have made it safely out of bed.

I think that there will never be
a post as treeish as the sea;

A sea that does what e'er it may
while great its power does display

despite our efforts to constrain
its impact to its own domain.

Posts are made by fools like me
but Great Lord Randall made the sea.

Get well soon BlitzGirl, for your posts are like unto the sea, despite any heresy involved in saying so! And now, To The Grapevine!

Going the other way...
10 degrees: Brisk fall day (50 F)
0 degrees: Freezing (32 F).
Below that we don't talk about in polite company.

This editing shall remove some mustardish goo,
and the OTTish word for “speedy” fits the meter, too.

It seems kind of ironic that you can't post images, when you have created possibly more of the images in this thread than anyone else besides BlitzGirl and GLR himself!

A question of psychology,
i.e. What is wrong with me
Why do I think SilentT
MysteryONG maker is a she?
With no good reason to believe! (Right? They never said, did they?)
Explain, what is wrong with me.
I made my avatar, Buffygirl hatted it, Yappo smileyed it and ggh taroted it!
I've changed, witnessing this thing so beautiful

Good luck on blitzing, katakissa, username5243, musthavebeenmykarma, iskinner, thunk, GnomeAnne, and quantized ! Keep the signposts coming, we love em in the now!

@Tatiana, Dracomax: Molpish to see you're both still molping about these parts!

Molpish to see you again BlitzGirl, even if you are a sick molpy :( Happy 5000! *Sends panther salve*

Time for an adventure!

Skywater was forecast all dip (and all wip... and all eternity...) but contrary to the forecast, there hasn't been a drop of skywater all day! I also took advantage of this and went on an adventure myself*. As I often do. But this time was different - I documented it on video, inspired by ED's molpy hunting, and y'all will be able to see it soon!

*Obviously, since you are I and I am you, though we are neither Rosetta nor Amtoo.

I believe SilentTimer has passed the magic number, and can now post images directly.

Also, I apparently stated something incorrectly yesterday. It isn't slide fast and then fly, it is slide fast and then fall:

Frozen skywater expected here tomorrow. (From a storm named Pax, which I find amusing.) Middle-sized wolpy's most favorite person is en route to here, but should have no trouble beating the storm.

And yay, a new BlitzGirlCrosswordHotdog! I've missed these.

It was pretty easy, since the main strategy for this one was: "If in doubt, molpy." :P

Funny coincidence. The guy who is the answer to 43 down is mentioned in the song I most recently ottified. So I got that one easily! (Wouldn't have done otherwise as I know nothing of British sport let alone Canadian! :P)
