That's not surprising at all.

AT. ALL.



Hey, at least we're not Springfield.   :)

New Bedford is #58, a full 30 ahead of Fall River.

Fuck this town never ceases to amaze me.  Sure it's not super high, but for a city of less than 100,000 that's just sad.

TOO LATE.

Squid's honey is being shipped by the bees themselves.  I've set up a vapor screen superhighway to direct them to Florida.  They have been trained to form a beard structure on her face and then vomit the honey all at once.  They were promised a freshly planted clover patch if they stung over 100 Floridians while they were down there.

Richter's honey delivery by trebuchet has been scrapped in favor of a ballista.

Jenne's is receiving the honey from EoC's Delivery Service.  It'll cost approximately $500 for the round trip flight to San Diego, plus a couch to crash on.  Food is optional but pleasantly welcome.

Heh, Dimo's bass player's argument reminds me of my own co-workers.  I've been arguing against the TSA policies with them for a few weeks now, and one of the things they ask is "How do you feel about us searching inmates, since you're against searching travelers?"

"You're talking about the difference between a convicted rapist and a grandmother going to visit her family."

"YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A CONVICTED RAPIST AND A GRANDMOTHER GOING TO VISIT HER FAMILY!"

"YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A CONVICTED RAPIST AND A GRANDMOTHER GOING TO VISIT HER FAMILY!"

I feel like fucking Yossarian in that place sometimes.

But it always comes down to this, on their side, "I'd rather be a little inconvenienced if at least I know we're safe."  The terrorists already won.  All flight passengers should be cuffed, naked, and be forced to cough while bending over a mirror.

I'm all for people opting out Wednesday.  Fuck this shit.

Oh good, I can write Barney Frank.

Taking a page from Moist von Lipwig, it couldn't hurt to print these bad boys out on some nice quality paper, possibly to set them apart from others.  Do our rabid fontspags have a suggestion to use to make it look all pretty?

I vote Niamh, for a broken sense of humor.   :argh!:

A timetable for those interested in honey:  This morning he told me he was extracting on Wednesday.  Once he gets some jars, he'll give me however many I need to send off.

Pricing, he clarified that he's asking $7 for a 1lb jar.  I believe he said he'd ask $12 for a 2lb jar, and I don't remember if he said anything about half pounds.

I was throwing the info in here because it was thread relevant, but since there seems to be a fair amount of interest I'll cross post it in Apple Talk.

I'll agree with the consensus here about Anansi Boys and American Gods, with two points.

1.  Following Gaiman's description of the raven woman in Anansi Boys, I have never been able to look at a bird's eyes the same way.  He is deadly accurate about them being wild, hungry, crazed, and merciless, and I see it in every god damn bird I encounter now.

2.  Neither of them had as powerfully disaffecting an ending as Neverwhere.

I was into cool before it was fashionable. My life has been dedicated to the pursuit of cool. I studied the greatest living icon of cool - Fonzie. Anyone wants to slag me off cos Fonzie isn't cool anymore? Witnesses will squeal something along the lines of, "COOL! That guy just tore that other dudes spine out through his asshole. 8)

This.  I watched Happy Days reruns on Nick at Night when I was 10 or so, and The Fonz has been my cool exemplar ever since.  I once Fonzie'd a car whose electrical system was failing.  One good knock to the dashboard flared it all back to life - and there were witnesses.

I should point out that I'm decidedly uncool though, and I'm completely alright with that.

He's borrowing an extractor (in exchange for 5lbs) this weekend.  I think he intends to heat it up overnight and actually harvest it on Monday.  As for when he gets it jarred and such, I'd expect Wednesday.

Jenne, I think I've shipped one item in my life, so if you have any secrets of a practical postage, I'll do whatever you prefer.

Richter, I can mail yours, I can deliver it in person, or I can try to trebuchet it precisely into your window (cost of trebuchet construction and any (re: all) shattered honey jars are also on you).  I'm also not entirely familiar with your address quite yet so I'll just end up covering all of Federal Hill in honey.

So I should put this opportunity out there for prospective honey buyers.  My father is about to harvest between 100 and 150 pounds of honey from the bees he keeps.  It's legitimately the best honey I've ever tasted, with it mostly being made of clover on the lawn and the herbs/fruits in his huge garden.  It's spicy and tastes almost like cinnamon.  I think he's asking for $8/lb, which is pricey I know, but if anyone is interested I'll see if I can float any your way.
