Hi thunk! Hi HES!


I started writing this just after you posted Gingercat, but then there was crying, and I'm just getting back to my sand now.
Gingercat wrote:I'd like to say I'm here but that would only be half-true...
Then I'll just talk to the outside of the box with optimism. :)
I've had Temple of Low Men playing in my car recently - that is one fine album! (Heehee, I just had to correct a typo, because my e key doesn't work very well "that is one fin album" - yeah, that too.) I'm not crazy about Kill Eye, nor do I really understand it, but the rest of the songs get me singing along.

I may have mentioned before that I Feel Possessed and In the Lowlands are big favourites, and I often make them repeat a few times before I let the CD player go to the next track. Sadly, there's a scratch that messes up the second half of Better Be Home Soon - I remember singing that one to myself more than a few times after a break-up I had over a decade ago. (He came home in the end, but I can't say that it was "soon" so I guess the threat was empty.) Love this Life - that's kinda the core tenet of Crowded House, eh?

And, sorry if this is a dim question, but Never Be the Same is about domestic violence, yes? - Neil's less depressing version of Tim's Charlie? I'm not generally into songs that are downers, but I like singing along with them both (Charlie, even moreso) because they're so pretty.



ETA: Pope? Really? Okay, explain this to me:

Why did the GLR have Rosetta ask for Cuegan's bags?

Ch*rp those basement stairs are slippery! Time for some of that Heinz stuff... you know, the stuff you have to wait for. 'fraid this will be an ironicly quick one though. Hardly a long pint.

And first thing I see is a new heuristically_alone! Welcome! (Well, actually I don't know if xe's new or old, but new here anyway. :) )

Amazing story. I never cease to be amazed at your sandcraftiness. Best I've done is, after installing an 8 bit memory board into a 16 bit computer, configured it as a hard drive, and then put the windows swap file on it (because if I simply let Windows manage memory, it would not know or care that the 8 bit memory is so much slower). So, I had memory acting like a hard drive acting like memory. I think I posted details (way) upthread.

My mustard story: We needed to build a temporary extension for a stage. This is fairly simple woodwork: lay out 2x4s, brace them, cut plywood to fit on top, add legs. The extension was to be in the shape of a flat isosceles triangle, about eighteen or so feet wide and from 1/2 to 2 feet deep. So, it couldn't be cut from a single 4' x 8' sheet of plywood. And the legs were close together at the ends, so it was a little bit tricky to drill for the screws. But, overall, no big deal. I've done this many times before, and the person I was working with was a professional building contractor. However, it was not a good day, unless you were a mustard salesman. It was some years ago, so I don't remember the details, but between the two of us this was the absolute worst piece of woodworking ever made. It was warped, the straight cuts were so far from straight that you could fall into the basement in the gap they made, it wobbled, none of the legs went on right, it ended up being the wrong size, it used all of our C-clamps to keep it attached to the main stage, and we were glad that it was only going to be used for that one show and then discarded with prejudice.

Alas, every director since then wanted the stage extension.

The theater in question has since closed down and the dumpster was engorged with its detritus. I don't think that had anything to do with it, but at least that mustardy secret died with the theater.

"We shall never speak of this again."

I've also got a telephone ringer I built that was stillborn. Too bad; it would have been treeish had it been steakish, but now it's just mustard looking for a hotdog.

But on your end, yay PCB STAF!

I guess I retrofulfilled the decree there. So much timey-wimey!

I want to say how much I enjoy seeing all the ottifications, and the past-ottcolored. So wingish! There are some I don't remember seeing before; it could be my CRS, but it could also be time travel. In any case, brings me smiles. I've noticed that (but haven't statistically investigated whether) the otties peaked after the voldeframe, and have dropped off. I'd wondered about that, and have concluded that in the Age of the Ice Cream, people were quite concerned that the thread might die and we'd lose this home. The creOTTivity it sparked was a way to avoid that fate. But at this point, I think we're pretty confident that the OTT will not end, and we've got backups of backups in case the xkcd version does, so we're more relaxed about things. And, in the yips since the Voldeframe, we've been blessed with many opportunities to Wait For It.

I think this also extends to the anxiety blitzers may encounter in the Time when the future was unknown. (aka the "past").

Yes, it matters... it's your backpack! But I bet it's not ruined - just needs a good washing. Backpacks don't get washed very often.

But I'll give your backpack my father's incantation from every time I was sick:

"Sana te, sana - colita de rana.

It means "be cured, be cured, tail of a frog.

I wonder if frogs have an affinity for backpacks.

If the number of staffs are increasing, either it's a bureaucracy or a sheep herders' convention. Or, a convocation of the gods.

Actually, I think that's what's happening.

SilentTimer, Molpishness, and Number 45

Postby thunk » Sat Jun 18, 2016 12:29 am UTC

...and that's how Bagshot was yappocised.

1939/2495 pages read (77.72%)
53.77 dips taken

Spoiler:
As usual, there was some stuff that happened.

In the SilentONGs, we begin as Cueganzzle journey to save Zombeanie's notebooks, carrying the Questionable Carcass with them. They find a seven-legged woolpy, obviously mutated from the surfeit of radionuclides liberated from the Bluecave by the actions of wind and water. Definitely unmolpish.
Though from watching films on, and being near some, of the blueenhanced areas of Belarus, they have more problems with the political situation than with the blue. Maybe it's different for the Beanies?

Whatever it is, Megball find the bluelake. They can't know what it is--too much has been lost--but they know it's bad news. And they know they must go Cave to figure out what to do, and to hopefully save the others from a grim fate.

oh, and by the way, Frizzle is getting pretty good at Unglish--no smudging! Though her vocabulary needs some help.
And all this as SilentTimer is depleting hir frame buffer.

mrob releases and develops qo4b, the second major hotdog of the OTT. It is also the one that brought me back here, long after Time had ended. I can't remember how I found it---maybe the OTW? Maybe the number stuff? But that's how TimeAfterTime was won.

In fact, I'm still praying when I'm not blitzing or working. I got to the raftcastle by furious button mashing. Then I lost it. Ah well.

the OTC gets its Hugo nomination, finally. Though the Sad Puppies managed to ch*rp it for everyone the following yip. Randamned manosphere...

Woolpy counting is fun. I first encountered it in Conway's (the mathematician, not the dinosaur artist) Book of Numbers.

You're right, much of the OTT is best read in a weird kind of half-coma state.

Though I prefer being awake. It's hard enough to make sense of these posts while acoma...

Dracomax has a tpyo in his sig. I finally notice. And the typo papal decre is discussed later.

Though I think realistically it's a bizarre weather phenomenon called a "scene transition".

Randammit again! I could probably write a treatise on OTC weather at this point...

Laura's water heater breaks. She is left without hot water for a few dips. That sucks.
In Belarus and Russia, hot water is centrally distributed. In the summer, for about a mip, the pipes are shut off for maintenance.
The result is that showers begin by heating 20 liters of water on the stove, and then being careful while washing. Those were unmolpish dips.

Then, the bagiversary! Or Bagpocalypse 2: Electric Bagaloo (as Ling, I think, mentioned.)

Yappo manages to download himself...and we all promptly forget about the duplicate otter. Whoops!

The OTT engages in a primordial round of adding lasers to paleoart.
(Naturally, this involved John Conway (the artist, not the mathematician) shooting lasers as well.)

azule, et al.: don't judge people's mammary choices until you grow a pair yourself. :lol:

Morris Dancing happens again. This is something I wouldn't have learned save for the OTT.

Indeed. Approximately half of my great-grandparents' generation died during it, either as conscripts or civilians.
While they were stopped before they could enact the Hungerplan, it was not before they carried out numerous campaigns of mass murder in the Holocaust.

MSWFP didn't like that one, and I didn't like the next two, but todip we went to one we both like, except for one thing. It has a pool, which is good, but it is vinyl, which would not last long with wolpies in it. So now we're trying to find out how much it is to make the pool not be vinyl. Then we'll see where we stand, and if we're trying to get this one, or going to keep looking.

1190: "Time": I HAVE THE MOLPIEST ЯОЯЯІМ ТТО RIGHT NOW.

Postby mrob27 » Sat Jun 18, 2016 2:56 am UTC

Thanks for all the replies about the Zanclean Zodiac! I forgot to say I have Chrome (v42) on MacOS (10.6 "Snow Leopard"). More importantly, I forgot to try Firefox (v35) and in that browser it works!

⪦ ⩤ ⫷ Zanclean Zodiac Autoframes ⫸ ⩥ ⪧


Here I identify the auto-generated frames of Zanclean Zodiac. These are generated by JavaScript using a "canvas". It starts with a stars-only image like 2434.png, then superimposes silhouettes of ground and/or trees and of Cuegan, and also sometimes adds brighter stars and/or connecting lines/curves.
  Instructions: Go here; scroll to the bottom to view the image that appears on the right side of the text starting with the words The story goes that ᓭᐧᘈᖉᕋ was simply gathering nuts.; press and hold the (left) "control" key, and while still holding the control key, repeatedly press the right-arrow key.
  Description of each frame:
  (Numbering: "frame 27" is what you see after pressing control-right-arrow 27 times)
  (first frame name e.g. "zodiac-0027-1b.png" refers to the files that are in the ZIP file attached to this post)
  (second name e.g. "2434.png" is the image at a URL like xkcd.modularthought.com/zancleanzodiac/img/2434.png)
  (I use some special Unicode characters here, you might not see some of them. Sorry.

frame 00: zodiac-0000.png (2407.png) (Cuegan on ridge, Wowtree trunk at far right)

frame 32: zodiac-0032-20.png (2439.png) (the 5 "╱" and "ᐱ" stars now in centre-bottom)
If you press control-right-arrow again, it will be "stuck" on frame 32. When this happens use the browser's "reload" command to return to frame 00)

I guess that's because they're drawn on a "canvas" by Javascript. Interesting. If I use the Firefox command Tools > Web Developer > Inspector, then select the "Network" tab and reload, I can see it loading images like 2407.png, 2408.png, etc. every time I hit control-right-arrow. It also loads silhouette images:

When you hit control-right-arrow the 33rd time, it attempts to load an image from xkcd.modularthought.com/zancleanzodiac/img/l21.png, and gets an error. Perhaps this is why control-arrows don't work after that. (21 is hexadecimal for 33).

I'll do some more Imagey bits later…

Well, you can also install a guard around the edge of the pool to protect the vinyl from claws. This, while probably a custom job (it's an idea I just came up with, not a standard pool accessory) will be much cheaper than draining the pool, removing the liner, and relining with gunnite and/or tile. The guard will probably be a maintenance item, but probably not a big deal. You might also stop by a boat store for ideas; I suspect boaters are better at improvising than pool installers.

In any case, there is probably a good solution that doesn't cost much, but lets you keep the vinyl.

It has a pool, which is good, but it is vinyl, which would not last long with wolpies in it. So now we're trying to find out how much it is to make the pool not be vinyl. Then we'll see where we stand, and if we're trying to get this one, or going to keep looking.
Well, you can also install a guard around the edge of the pool to protect the vinyl from claws. This, while probably a custom job (it's an idea I just came up with, not a standard pool accessory) will be much cheaper than draining the pool, removing the liner, and relining with gunnite and/or tile. The guard will probably be a maintenance item, but probably not a big deal. You might also stop by a boat store for ideas; I suspect boaters are better at improvising than pool installers.

In any case, there is probably a good solution that doesn't cost much, but lets you keep the vinyl.

Jose

I don't think it is just the edges we need to worry about, but we'll investigate our options, and figure out if we try for this house or keep looking.

Ha! Did you just make my post for me in that second spoiler, Zooman?
I used to know a guy who used to say "you're welcome" immediately after sneezing to skip to the end of the conventional exchange that a sneeze might trigger. It really confused folks the first time or two they'd experience it - you hear a sneeze, you instinctively open your mouth and... there's nothing to say.

The only other thing I remember about that fellow was that he drank a bit of my coffee once. I used to stay up late when I was at university. Like 3 days late. (I could do a week when I was in high school, but I'd hallucinate a bit.) I didn't see the point of staying awake if you had to spend all the gained time visiting the toilet, so I made my coffee by adding water to instant coffee until it started behaving enough like a liquid that I wouldn't need a spoon. I can't remember why he wanted a sip of my coffee, but watching his face was a worthwhile experience.

The older I got, the less I could go without sleep. At work here in New Zealand I've pulled more all-nighters than I can shake a stick at, but I was always in pretty rough shape the next day, even after applying many energy drinks.


Yay! Jose!

So I enjoyed your tale, but, like, did that mean that you had to go out and buy more C-clamps?

Postby mrob27 » Sat Jun 18, 2016 3:00 pm UTC

@svenman: I guess I was being a bit extreme, I apologise!
  It was probably my reaction to the overall-awkward metre of the various verses on that newpage, and more importantly, I didn't realise everyone was desperately trying to impose @jjjdavidson's rule #6 upon this new double-anapest form. Why not do as @jjjdavidson explicitly suggested:

 […] it's perfectly reasonable that we should use our own
 fresh-minted six-syllable words for the purpose, rather than relying
 on standard English.


For that matter, why do we even need rule 6? It's a new poetic form, we can define it however the ch*rp we wish. If writing "double-trochee" verse would there need to be a line made up of a single 4-syllable word? What about an eight-syllable word for iambic tetrameter?

ggh wrote:I've totally forgotten: can you attach stuff to PMs?

I couldn't do it last yip, and apparently it still isn't allowed. (I mean for normal users like us. It was true at one point that some users could use the flash tag, because I found a post with such a tag. Perhaps mods have such permission).
  During the OTTscars, @BlitzGirl attached attachments to a post that was hidden in some obscure place, and then PMd @Yappobiscuits with a link to wherever the attachment was. If you want it to be private, perhaps you could use an encrypted/password-protected archive, or share it on some other non-xkcd-related file-sharing service, or both.

ggh wrote:She was a pretty good birder, but then, at 50, they diagnosed her with terminal melanoma, and she said chirp it and went out and became an awesomeful birder - like the first to see over 8000 different species.

I paused several moments to consider how many more ch*rps could be worked into that sentence. I think I got it up to about ten and decided that was a ch*rping ch*rp of a lot. What's the proper OTTification of "birder" — "chirper" or "chirpyer" (which sounds like the comparative "chirpier")? In Phoebe Snetsinger's case the title really ought to be "ch*rping ch*rpiest ch*rper".

I don't think it's just about permission.
The attachments are being post attachments and that's an important part of their nature.
Go to the attachment management page and you'll see that each attachment is bound (forever) with with a post.
PM attachments if existed would be a different thing. But then the management page would be called differently, right?
Do we know any forums (phpBB, not something else) where PM attachments are real things?

I think it was the combination of the story style (both visually and content-wise) and the panning.
Sorry about that.

Speaking of little mysteries, back when you first mentioned it, I spent some time trying to locate your (ex-)magical bike path on Google maps, but I don't think I was successful. I thought I had figured out which ring road and bridge you were speaking of, but then I didn't get much further - the candidates I saw didn't seem countryish enough. Also I wasn't sure if I was crossing a line of creepiness.

Yay!

I have a red backpack I got for nothing; it's done yeoman service. It is just a basic day pack, but has good zippers. I also have two blue daypacks that also had handles like attache cases. A bigger one with seaish zippers I use for flying, and a more riverish one with thinner zippers I used to use for flying. Those are clearly high quality ones (though the thinner zipper had a few issues). The red one has one shoulder strap that is pretty much shot, but it keeps holding on, and we abuse the ch*rp out of it (We'll put two gallons of water in it, or stuff it with cans and coffee when we're shopping when traveling) but it hasn't let go yet. It always looks like it's just about to, but won't.

lmjb1964 wrote:Or, alternately, tell about a time you stayed up way too late, and whether it was a good thing or not.
I was a geology student, and took a class in which one of the assignments is to "find the rest of the gold". We're given a (stylized) geological map where there's a vein of gold visible, but there are also three fault lines through it, so you can only see a piece of the vein. Where's the rest of it?

It's a simple problem: by looking at the fault lines, figure out which was the last one to have moved, "unerode" the appropriate side, reverse the fault motion, examine the result. Iterate (3x) until done. It really shouldn't take very much time.

Invariably students leave it until the last minute, even knowing what has happened every year in the past. I did too, of course. So now the thing's due at 8am tomorrow, and it's 10pm tonight.

Locate the last fault.
Unerode one side.
reverse the motion.
Something doesn't look right. Oh... I uneroded the wrong side. M*stard!
Go back, re-erode, unerode the other side
reverse the motion.
Locate the next-to-last fault.
unerode one side
reverse the motion.
Something doesn't look right. Oh... I was right the first time, I just moved the fault the wrong way.
Go back....
iterate (nx) until due.

Nobody ever admits it, but it gets harder and harder the later it gets. Pretty soon you've crossed the line between what is "late at night" and what is "early in the morning" (I declare that to be 6am) and the assignment still isn't done. It's almost done, but ch*rp! Somewhere back there I lined up the wrong lines! Which fault was it? Ok... this isn't so hard. Start again.

This is a story that is told from year to year as a warning to the incoming, and every year it is repeated. This time it would be different.

No, it wouldn't.

So true. Sometimes I'll write something and it will read properly either in the "correct" stress pattern for the poem, and equally correctly in the other form. Often this has to do with whether a single one-syllable word at the beginning of the line gets a stress or not, which depends on the words that follow, which the reader doesn't know yet.

Gingercat wrote:I'd like to say I'm here but that would only be half-true...
Since the "I'd like to" and the "I'm here" are quantum entangled, if you ever figure out whether you'd like to say something or not, you'll either be here, or disappear. I recommend you not try to figure out whether you'd like to say something or not. Just say stuff.

Then I'll just talk to the outside of the box with optimism. :)


Optimism is good. It tends to flip the box's internals back into "this" facet of the multiverse for a while.

I've had Temple of Low Men playing in my car recently - that is one fine album! (Heehee, I just had to correct a typo, because my e key doesn't work very well "that is one fin album" - yeah, that too.) I'm not crazy about Kill Eye, nor do I really understand it, but the rest of the songs get me singing along.


Yeah, Kill Eye doesn't really appeal to me either; I'm not entirely sure what it's referring to, and the singing style is... too aggressive? for their usual feel.

I may have mentioned before that I Feel Possessed and In the Lowlands are big favourites, and I often make them repeat a few times before I let the CD player go to the next track. Sadly, there's a scratch that messes up the second half of Better Be Home Soon - I remember singing that one to myself more than a few times after a break-up I had over a decade ago. (He came home in the end, but I can't say that it was "soon" so I guess the threat was empty.) Love this Life - that's kinda the core tenet of Crowded House, eh?


In The Lowlands is such a cheerful, catchy tune!

Love This Life seems (to me) to be an appeal to someone else to love the life they have; maybe the song's subject is suffering from depression? (Something I certainly know about too.)

And, sorry if this is a dim question, but Never Be the Same is about domestic violence, yes? - Neil's less depressing version of Tim's Charlie? I'm not generally into songs that are downers, but I like singing along with them both (Charlie, even moreso) because they're so pretty.


Although I've never personally put much thought into this particular song, you've just given me a topic for some serious consideration. Domestic violence almost feels like a shoehorn for this song, rather than the intended message; it seems (to me) to be more of a criticism of someone for a sudden turn into a meaner version of themselves (they need to "rise up through the maze" and "change [their] life" to get back to the person they were, as they're currently lost. Maybe due to falling in with drugs?) - This change is causing them to be suddenly and unusually awful to someone they love.

Mansion In The Slums is another quite interesting song/statement by Neil, in my opinion - "I'd much rather have a caravan in the hills / Than a mansion in the slums". What are your thoughts on that particular one, ggh? As well as Hole In The River. (Before I possibly color your opinion by providing my own, I'd like to hear your thoughts on these ones and definitely others as well!)

And have you heard some of CH's newer ones, such as Walked Her Way Down, or maybe Transit Lounge?

[Everyone else, please feel free to join in the discussion if you're a Crowded House fan as well! I love this band.]

So true. All of it. (Except the part about 6am. The new day starts that moment when you know in your heart that you don't get to sleep. For me, that usually coincided with the taking of the morning shower, or that conscious skipping of same.)

It has a pool, which is good, but it is vinyl, which would not last long with wolpies in it. So now we're trying to find out how much it is to make the pool not be vinyl. Then we'll see where we stand, and if we're trying to get this one, or going to keep looking.
Well, you can also install a guard around the edge of the pool to protect the vinyl from claws. This, while probably a custom job (it's an idea I just came up with, not a standard pool accessory) will be much cheaper than draining the pool, removing the liner, and relining with gunnite and/or tile. The guard will probably be a maintenance item, but probably not a big deal. You might also stop by a boat store for ideas; I suspect boaters are better at improvising than pool installers.

In any case, there is probably a good solution that doesn't cost much, but lets you keep the vinyl.

Jose

If it's an in-the-ground pool with sufficiently strong sides (brick and mortar, for example) Polyesther/glassfiber is an effective substitute, (if you can stand the smell during hardening). It's really not that difficult to apply, but I advise to watch some videos online and test on a small object like a flowerpot. I have a tiny bit of experience with the stuff and would be willing to help remotely if you can't find anyone closer.
Don't bother with a mold release, you won't be removing it anyway.
If you are doing such a thing I'd advise building a ramp for the wolpies to get out first. As they age climbing out becomes impossible before they realize they won't be able to get out. And a wolpy can only swim for so long.

It is in ground, not sure what is behind the vinyl. Pretty sure this project falls into the the 'hire someone' category for us, the tricky part is figuring out how much it would cost, before we decide if we even want to put an offer on the house. It's not our pool, yet.

Wolpy egress is definitely something we're thinking about. Currently the pool only has ladders, so that's not going to work.

Take some pictures and measurements. Diameter + depth are required. Talk to a pool guy, although they may think it's easier to just put a complete factory pool in. If you happen to know someone who built a polyester boat: ask them about it too (it is the same kind of work).
Dunno how it's there but 'round here i'd check with a handyman. There are small companies that can do such stuff.

It didn't work, Rosetta hardly moves, and Cuegan is not shown to exert any extra effort due to bag placement. If I imagine what had to happen in the interframe after RUN appeared, it's actually kinda awkward - with the grabbing the bags on the other side of Rosetta and then doing a 180 to head for the door - but in the OTC, all we see is them bolting smoothly through the beads. It's more like the GLR was hoping we'd forget that the bags were not already on their backs for the sake of the art of the RUN shot. I'm just not seeing what was accomplished here by the bag-taking, and how it was worth the cost that the OTA paid to have those frames.

Displaced kumara... I feel like I should really get that one, thunk, but I don't. Uprooted something? Redundant kumara would be canned yams.... On the right track at all? Hmm, I think I'll be kicking myself when you explain that one.



I think I'm relieved by your answer, taixzo; I'd feel really bad if I could have helped the beanies but failed to. They were pretty awesomeful.



Gingercat wrote:In The Lowlands is such a cheerful, catchy tune!
I can't tell if that's sarcasm.... I'm guessing no, but for those playing along at home, the song begins with "Oh, Hell, trouble is coming/Out here in panic and alarm" and has such uplifting lines as "Fear will take the place of desire" and "Ghost cars on the freeway/Like friends that you thought you had/One by one, they're disappearing". And yet.... In that sense (and probably that sense only) it reminds me of Dirty Creature, which, while really dark lyrically, is - would you say, GingerCat, that that's Split Enz's most danceable number?

Gee, now I'm super-curious about what you're going to say about that, because I thought it was one of the less confusing ones (though the bleeding-to-death lines don't really make sense to me). I always saw Mansion as an anti-rat-race, anti-keeping-up-with-the-jones', anti-trying-to-impress kinda tune: better to be poor but live your life a way that makes you happy. And then it gets kinda jokey, with, hey, wouldn't it be even cooler to live your life however you please and be rich?

Gingercat wrote:As well as Hole In The River. (Before I possibly color your opinion by providing my own, I'd like to hear your thoughts on these ones and definitely others as well!)
I haven't listened to Hole in the River for a while, so I might have to get back to you on that one. I mean, I remember liking it, even though it's so sad, but I don't recall much more than that.

I liked that album a lot (although Transit Lounge is not one of my faves) - I'll get to it. :) I saw Crowded House once, maybe twice, on that tour and I remember the audience being impatient with the new stuff. One guy actually called out something... gee, I can't remember his words... but something along the lines of "enough of this new sh*t" which Neil heard and repeated at some point, maybe jokingly, maybe bitterly. I am often proud of Wellington, but not at that moment.

Sweet bald-headed Cue! Absolutely not! Have you seen the internet?!!?

I wrote it for the lovely lovely folks that work at this Mexican restaurant that is like a second home to the Little Wonder and I (it's a long story). Sure they make and serve great food, but the big thing for us is how they make us feel - and sometimes we - I'm looking at you, Little Wonder - can be a handful. You're not going to get the inside jokes of course, I've changed the name to protect the guilty, and I'm not sure I can be bothered to try to transcribe the melody or photograph the visual aid, but here are the lyrics if you're curious:
Spoiler:
Can't help but grin when we come in
We're just so glad to see ya
I squeal with glee: Enchilada for me!
Ann gets a quesadilla.
You make us feel like we belong
Great hugs and great smells both so strong
It's Mexican, so is it wrong
I'm shouting mama mia?

You got us dancing in the aisles til the moment we depart
You make me happy in my belly! You make me happy in my heart!
And that plate of chilaquiles, omg, a work of art
You make me happy in my belly! You make me happy in my heart!

That curl of cheese, oh please oh please!
The agua fresca's splendid.
I stand and yap. Annie does a lap,
then flies from arms suspended
The special comes - I'm stunned again
Flavours like that, I say amen
And what a blessing it has been
to be so well befriended

Margaritas may be magic, but your fluffy's off the chart
You make me happy in my belly! You make me happy in my heart!
Having two Mexican husbands - doesn't that make me a tart?
You make me happy in my belly! You make me happy in my heart!

I've grown well-versed in feeling fit to burst
Is it the eats or my heartbeats
That fill me (fill me)

Wanna tell you how I love you, but I don't know where to start
You make me happy in my belly! You make me happy in my heart!
Those big smiles and the sunshine: they're hard to tell apart
You make me happy in my belly! You make me happy in my heart!
You keep us healthy with those black beans, and they come without a fart!
You make me happy in my belly! You make me happy in my heart!
Wanna keep me from that swordfish, you'll have to hit me with a dart
You make me happy in my belly! You make me happy in my heart!
Letting Annie throw the limes was, very sweet, if not that smart
You make me happy in my belly! You make me happy in my heart!
If you're wondering how I'm feeling, please refer to this flow chart
You make me happy in my belly! You make me happy in my heart!

This one is just the same nonsensical word combo as most Vital Hotdog Function suggestions. But sweet potatoes were also one of the first New World crops brought away from the continent by the Polynesians (before 1000 B. T.); hence displacement.

of course, it's best to keep quiet before ggh gets arrested for gardening without a license (probably a joke article).

Wow, in that case I must be the most dangerous person on earth as I play 3 out of those 4, and all 4 are among my favourite instruments and the one I don't play (bagpipes) is the one I most wish I could play.

Forgot to reply to ggh's original post too - Good on you being converted to the ways of the accordion! I'd like to have seen it :P

I sometimes completely skipped the "build by instructions" part.

About staying up late:
While being a student I too sometimes had too much left to do in the last days. But even if I didn't manage to finish everything in the day I would not stay out late . I went to sleep anyway but I got up at 4AM and continued doing the things in the early morning. It was so much faster than in the evening!
I have not had any unsleeped night so far.
