Officials at the Enchanted Forest posted this picture on their Facebook page with the update:
“A sad day at EF! Hopefully we can put him together again! (Thankfully, no one was hurt, except Humpty)“

It appears Humpty’s demise was accidental. KOIN 6 News learned two men climbed over the retaining wall and tried to get up on the wall with Humpty, but Humpty and the wall fell.

Was the word "literally" really necessary in that headline? Like Humpty would have a figurative fall instead?

A fall from grace, a fall from glory? A falling out with his already emotionally distant father, or perhaps a childhood best friend who has gotten really into their newfound religion? A fall into a decadent and debased lifestyle, brought on by a perceived lack of responsibility and purpose in his life?

I'm so confused about what's happening right now

Sadly, yes.  This has not been an enjoyable day.

I called this a speech because it was one.  I was asked by Mayor Hiremath to give a short speech at a Rotary Club meeting as a "distinguished veteran". 

It was not, unfortunately, well-received.  But I got to eat FIRST, so it was a win.  I in fact just got home.

I thought Mayor Hiremath was gonna bust a gut laughing.

Fuckin' bravo. :lulz:

I read some of the speculation on the Second Apocalypse forums...and I was lost on the references in many cases.  I think I may have read parts of The White-Luck Warrior too quickly, because I don't remember pieces at all.  So this time I've been taking notes. 

I may start a thread to discuss the bits I've picked out, a sort of scrapbook/book club thing, if anyone else wants to join in.  I've not gotten any amazing insights thus far, though I'm only half way through The Warrior-Prophet, but I did notice Kellhus basically makes a mention of the Judging-Eye even that far back (though not by name).

Oh shit. Three times and that still slipped by me.

There's a lot to be gained from the Atrocity Tales on the website, I recall. There's only one mention of the Inverse Fire I can recall in the first trilogy, and it seems to be central to why the Consult exist. It is explained a little more in one of the Atrocity Tales.

:lulz: And here I was proud of myself for managing to get back in the habit of reading semi-regularly. I also re-read PoN and have started The Judging Eye again, because I've got a big feeling that The Unholy Consult is gonna be hell to follow if I don't have the plot fresh in my mind.

The Rheusus Chart has been released today. 

If you're not already reading The Laundry Files series, WAYSA?  It's got everything you need, the British Civil Service, techno-geekery and eldiritch horrors from dimensions with recurved space and backwards time invading our reality.

And if you're still not convinced, you can read the first chapter here.

I barely have time for the reading I'm already trying to do, and then you go and get me interested in this :argh!:

You know, this latest round of brain weirdness has actually affected the way I look at people, in a very positive way.  I've very quickly become a lot more willing and able to put myself in someone else's shoes.

I still hate Mike the Engineer like he was sucking Pol Pot's farts out every night, mind you.  But he's a genuinely bad person.  In general I find myself a great deal more sympathetic toward people.

I think I like this a great deal.

Right on! :)

CPD, Better late than never, I guess? That sounded a lot more compassionate in my head.

It's cool. My own mistake.

We all have those. Did I tell you about the guy I shouldn't have dated at all, but instead dated for eleven months and he fucked my head so badly I'm STILL recovering? Yeah. I think you might have been here for that, actually.

By contrast, I can count the number of quarrels and emotionally traumatizing moments I've had with my current boyfriend on no hands. Rest assured that there's something better out there.

This.  Drama is NOT inevitable.

Ex started talking tonight like last night's convo had never happened and we were still a thing. Wanted me to crawl in bed with him and such. I was really confused and disturbed. Brought up last night's convo anyway and it completely flummoxed him. Completely. Flummoxed.

Ditto Nigel's statement. You're being messed with, gtfo of there as soon as you can.

(unless it was a different acronym for "GIS" being discussed in which case I'm a huge tool)

It's so charming, the stalkers, the way they show me their devotion and dedication so that they can prove to me that I should just GIVE THEM A CHANCE.

Advise them that you have standards, and they should watch Taxi Driver for details.  Deniro has all the answers.

Perhaps that will be my next step. Although that reminds me, I need to change my OK Cupid status to "seeing someone", which I have been forgetting to do for about the last 2 years. I wonder what treasure trove of messages awaits?

Half of Portland, jacking off like monkeys in the zoo.   :lulz:

It was a strange assortment of numerous "Hey baby"s, several guys telling me that my profile was funny, a couple of guys informing me that "Tauruses are the most interesting people" (Really? From what little I recall of astrology, we're hedonistic homebodies who do little more than lie around on satin pillows eating cheese) and one guy explaining what GIS is.

Well shit, I can do that! No need to go all the way to OK Cupid to learn when you've got huge fucking nerdlords here on PeeDee.

What is GIS?

Geographical Information Systems. Advanced computer mapping software that lets you do spatial analyses of stuff, and also makes things like Google Maps work.

I was waiting for the Eugene one :lulz:

Huh. I guess fuck informed consent, right?

Informed consent is for LOSER NERDS who rely on grant money to do their science.
