Sabre FOR THOSE WHO REMEMBER SATURDAY MORNINGS... =========================================== M00SE. a verb. sounds like the subject of a schoolhouse rock to me... heheh mommydammit ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ******************************* EVENTS AND NEWS ******************************* ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- INTERESTED IN OTHER PEOPLE'S VACATIONS? ======================================= On July 8th, 1988, the Pickle chapter of the M00se Illuminati packed up and headed for Baltimore, MD for a thr0ng-a-thon and concert. This is his story. JULY 8, 1988 (Approximately 3:30 P.M.): Car packed. Food and tapes on passenger seat. Full tank (30-35 gallons) of premium gasoline. Mad River Explorer on roof racks. An estimated 4700 lbs. of car, driver, supplies, and canoe hit the road. Itinerary: bank, Triple-A, Highway 84w. (App. 4:00 P.M.): Bank accounts now empty. $105 in pocket. On way to AAA, 1-liter bottle of Coca-Cola Classic assaults car and driver. Theory: poltergeist in bottle. Go to AAA, get card. Coke is corrosive; as it would not do to leave it on the car, head for nearest car wash. (App. 4:30 P.M.): While entering gas station to pay for car wash, realize that there is Mad River Explorer on roof racks. Curse, head for nearest non- automatic car wash in South Windsor. (App. 5:30 P.M.): Car Washed, Dairy Queen cherry Misty Freeze in stomach, on 84w. Just before passing Farmington exit, realize that there are no clothes suitable for concert in duffel bag. Snarl a lot, take Farmington exit home. (App. 6:00 P.M.): Finally hit road with pants, shirt, mismatched but dark socks, shoes, borrowed tie. Determined to call Stasa at approximately 10:00 P.M. to tell her I'll be 2 hours late. (App. 11:00 P.M.): Realizing have forgotten to call Stasa. About to seek phone when sign leaps out of bushes and states "Baltimore 58 miles." Realize in amazement that the trip is two hours shorter than expected. (12:02 P.M.): Arrive at Stasa's home and habitation, 2 minutes late. Present flowers and Asti and apologize. Ponder the realization that the Supertanker quaffed down at least two quarts of oil on the trip. (The time periods between events will now increase.) (Saturday, July 9, 1988): Wake up. Accompany Stasa to pool. Meet her fellow lifeguards. Add weight to theory that one of the requirements of being a lifeguard is a stunning appearance in bathing suit. Avoid looking too stunned, read book. Several hours later, impressive electrical storm puts on spectacular audiovisual display. Back to Stasa's house, change, meet Q. and friend with fast car, head out to meet Grup thr0ng. See _Who_Framed_Roger_ Rabbit_. Meet straggling Grup chapters, head for dinner. In attendance: Stasa, Q., Q.'s friend (Steve?), Sybil, Fast Eddie, Markus, Mommy Dammit, Mary Beth, Paul?, Mike, Damion (sp?), Damion's support group, myself. In no particular order. Sorry if I missed someone. Fries, beverages, joke, homeward. Mary Beth actually was ill and missed dinner, but at least we got to see her. Home, sleep. (Sunday, July 10, 1988): Pool again, many of those listed above in attendance for pool party. Stasa proves that she is paid too little. Many scorched m00ses. Sunglasses wars. Home and sleep. (Monday, July 11, 1988): Wake up, discover everybody was right and shoulders were, in fact, burned. Take painful shower. Outdoor temp once again 100+. Stasa leads the way to the Gunpowder river. Very pretty, much cooler, and infested with some kind of biting fly. Back home, collect Mary Beth, go to Harbor Place, or Inner Harbor, or whatever its real name is. Comic shop fails me second time in a row, does not have a single thing I'm looking for. (Doesn't carry Warlock 5?! "Not much call for it 'round here", they say.) Buy delicious fudge. Take Mary Beth home, go back to Stasa's, sleep. (Tuesday, July 12, 1988): Observe spectacular storm at 2:00 am. Go with Stasa to Loyola, receive as gift from Mike an account of my own. Back to Stasa's for a while, then back to Loyola, get wiped out by Mike in Conquest. Back to Stasa's again, leave with Mr. Appel to concert. German and Austrian dancing and music. Inside for the concert. Piano concerto, intermission, Ninth Symphony. First movement lacking, but second incredible. Third and fourth very good. Howard Johnson's for dinner and snack. Discovery: HoJo's is not a rathole everywhere. This one is more like Denny's. Back once more, and sleep. (Wednesday, July 13, 1988): Awake, farewell to all. Drive to Harbor Place, shop and eat a little more. Hit the road home. NOTE: New Jersey bashing ahead. All was going well when a sign announced "This way to 95 north/NJ Turnpike". Figuring, since I was already on it, that there was construction ahead on the turnpike, I took the exit. And ended up on Route 1 North, with a traffic light every half mile or so, for an hour. In heavy traffic. Can't use air conditioner in stop-and-go. Suddenly realize what those sneaky bastards had done! (Later confirmed by parents, this detour has been there for years.) On either side of the road are thriving roadside businesses, all of which would probably go out of business if people could take 95 around them! If thoughts could drop bombs, New Jersey would be a smoking wasteland right now, rather than just a wasteland. As if that weren't enough, they charge $3 to leave NJ via the big suspension bridge. I forget what it's called. They don't charge you to enter NJ! Rest of trip without incident. Oh, except for one item of note... on the NY-CT line is Danbury, CT. In it is the Danbury Federal Correctional Institution. On the way past it going into CT is a sign: FEDERAL CORRECTIONAL INSTITUTION DO NOT PICK UP HITCHHIKERS This sign does not exist on the other side of the road, as you travel toward NY. Does this mean it's been stolen by a convict/hitchhiker, or that CT doesn't care if escapees head for NY? Well, that's my report. Not the best piece of writing I've done, but hey! It's the summer! Pickle. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ***************************** FICTION AND POETRY ****************************** ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Once again, there is no fiction and poetry this week. Send me some and I'll publish it. Please. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- *************************** MISCELLANEOUS NONSENSE **************************** ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- SOMETHING FIENDISHLY M00SY TO DO... =================================== Ahoy there! How's life going? What, you have a lot of time on your hands? Well here's something that will both occupy your time and make the world a stranger place to live in... You see, I have this roommate who badly needs to have something odd happen to him, only he doesn't know it. And what better place to go to get something odd done than here? So what I'm asking is that, if you've got the mind, sit down and write a postcard. Don't put your name on it, don't put a return address, and for god's sake *SEND NO CASH*. Leave the message part blank, put something weird in it (and I know you can...), or maybe some argument for/against the existance of something, or a math puzzle or just random words, it doesn't really matter...so long as he's baffled, bewildered, and bemused...(no threats would be best, I'm not out to give him sleepless nights...) And, if you really care, let me know and I'll give you the bleedin' fifty cents or so it costs. And if you know somebody in a remote area who might want to drop this fellow a line (really, he's a big cheese weenie), that would be great (I'm trying for the largest geographical spread here). So anyway if you're still with me, here's the address: Eduardo Looney (no, not his name but it's pretty close) 3465 Edinburgh #7 Riverside, CA 92507 by the way I'm sending this both to the literary underground and weird-l. Sorry if you're seeing it twice. And if you think it's a gross waste of net resources to do this, well I'm sending this on a weekend, see? And if you think it's the greatest idea since...well I'm sure you can think of something, the tell a friend! or a fiend! Thank you for your consideration...
