Excepting those he may have written himself, the enclosed items do not in any way represent the Editor's opinions. In fact, let's be real safe, and say that as far as this newsletter is concerned, he has no opinions at all. Okay? Good. =============================================================================== ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- ************************** EDITORIALS AND LETTERS *************************** ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hello, all. As I write this, it is the only thing going into the newsletter. I have received *nothing else*. If I'm going to keep this thing coming out, I need contributions! Send interesting news, fiction, anything! I've heard some GREAT ideas from some of you, but they don't do me or any other m00ses any good unless you write them up and send them to me! Which brings me to the next topic. I've asked Sabre to stop forwarding M00se Droppings to CSBB.M00se, mainly to ease up the load on BITNET that must occur everytime M00se Droppings gets shot out of there (over 60 rather large documents....) We DO want to keep using it, though! So here's what it's for, at least in my opinion. Let's use, as an example, the plea we had from a person suffering tuition overload, last issue (or was it the issue before?) The initial document would go through m00se droppings, where everyone can read it. Any discussion that follows, however, should take place on csbb.M00se. This way, once a topic is started rolling in M00se Droppings, it can continue at a much faster rate on CSBB.M00se. As another example, there is an *extremely* m00sey idea in the works at our Maine thr0ng. They are (supposedly!) going to write up a proposal and send it to me, and I will include it in M00se Droppings. But we don't want to wait for the next issue to come out to see what kind of thoughts people have about this idea, so we would discuss it on CSBB.M00se. Perhaps the final version would reappear in M00se Droppings, but all the modification should be done on CSBB.M00se. Well, it's now been several days, and I've received two items. So here comes issue 7...... Bill. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ******************************* EVENTS AND NEWS ******************************* ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- None this time, I'm afraid. Except in reference to Camp Relay II. I discovered, to my bewilderment, that Kamikaze did not, in fact, name it Camp Relay II: The Quest for M00se. *I* didn't make it up. I don't know who did. But in any case, that wasn't the official name, it was Camp Relay II only. There were, however, lots of m00ses there, and we had fun. Perhaps someone will write up a report? (Hint, hint) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ***************************** FICTION AND POETRY ****************************** ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Again, none here....... ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- *************************** MISCELLANEOUS NONSENSE **************************** ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Couple items for this. Namely: >it was a sign! > >i was at a store today...and i saw tons of mason jewelry... >and right next to a masonic ring, and cufflinks..there was a m00se. >weird, huh? > >stacey and: -------------------- those that have ridden with her, know -------------------- THE ADVENTURES OF A FORD ESCORT..(Or driving with a crazy m00se).. ..(Or The Three wheel drive Ford escort) The day was the day before this, Sunday August the 14th. The Subject a blue Ford Escort..name unknown. The driver a Stacey (Starfire?) strange name.. The passengers two obviously mentally unbalanced people.. calling themselves Sindex and Hobgoblin. Hi! there, folks! M00selock Holmes here with a report on the strange goings on of fellow m00ses.. It all started one evening in England when i was seated in my den awaiting the famous ...oopps sorry..wrong tale... The day was Sunday the 14th, the time 6:23pm..I was sitting picnicking near a local reservoir (very m00se like hangout in the hot weather) when all of the sudden i spotted some fellow m00ses out for a sunday drive. A nice day for a quiet drive. I sat there drinking my tea in the shade as they tore around a corner, careening towards a jogger and some kids (it was close by a half an inch) and passed by in a blur.. I jumped up eager to find out where my fellow m00se would be heading in such a hurry (spilled my tea too..) and got into my truck, an orange Isuzu. The chase was afoot! I spotted them going out of the reservoir and up a dirt road...(in a Ford Escort..incredible; these americans are such brave people) I mean up! The road went up a hill and into a field..The music coming from the car durring all of this was varied...from Lost Boys to the infamous Beetlejuice sound track.. Well, that was too much..The question was were they trying to confuse the world by showing that a ford escort is really an off road vehicle, or was the car a transformer? I put my Isuzu in gear and followed as they went straight into the woods.. The ford escort putted along fine until the road suddenly filled with ruts. Well, to make a long story short the silly m00ses got themselves stuck good in the middle of the woods in a ford escort. It was up to me to save the day. Before i got a chance great clouds of smoke came out of the car..It occured to me that they were thinking..egads!.. I heard Sindex mutter something about the car being a three wheel drive car and the next thing i knew all was well.. The ford had transformed into super ford!! Pulling itself outa the ditch it lurched forwards back down the road, spilling coolant along the way..(well what do you expect from a Ford?). Later i found out the folk had been in search of reservoirs that day to do strange water rituals to escape the heat..(under water bl00ping?) They ended their day with a chinese food dinner and a few close run-ins with the local police.. Well thats all for now..Gota Vam00se.. M00selock Holmes...... Starfire:"the question is, what is M00selock Holmes smoking in that pipe?", "Vanilla beans?" (a weird hallucinagenic substance..) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- *************** AND, OF COURSE, THE UBIQUITOUS M00SE LIST UPDATE ************** ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Alaska thr0ng JSJPC1 @ ALASKA Jonathan JSMDG @ ALASKA Martin Bryn Mawr chapter M_PETTIT @ BRYNMAWR Midland Maniac Boston University chapter CLXLAUC @ BUACCA Rorshach Cornell chapter CBRY @ CORNELLA Ladykate Lansing, NY chapter B45J @ CRNLVAX5 Half-Elf B45J @ CRNLVAX5 The Innkeeper Connecticut State U thr0ng CLAFFEY_JOR @ CTSTATEU Indiana Joe COLANGELO @ CTSTATEU Ken Colangelo PHINNEY_AVK @ CTSTATEU Phredde WITHALL @ CTSTATEU Hobgoblin Hartford thr0ng BANKERT @ HARTFORD Scub BEAUBIEN @ HARTFORD Sindex DICKSON @ HARTFORD Pickle/MOON ROACH!
