Oops, just noticed - in the Aug 4 2022 1:43 post, Al talks about Greg as a potential lawman in Tombstone - and then just 5 paragraphs of dialog later Al rejoins the group.

Oh, Glytch... I happened to notice that the current registration for the "regurgitron.com" domain seems to have lapsed, and the domain might be available in a couple of months if the current owner doesn't pay to renew it.

Just saying'...

Well, the idea I got from “regurgitron” was… well, yknow how they use “pigs” to clean out pipelines? Yeah. Not a good idea.

What was deployed here was the Discombobulator.

This is just the man-portable model.

"Oh shit-" Rick stated before he and Monica disappeared in a 'Poit'!
Perhaps prophetically. Rick might be the first person in history whose teleport ends in midair, at the start of a 50-foot plunge into a sewage settling tank. 8-)

He picked the wrong woman to condescend, and very much the wrong circumstances under which to do so. I'm suspecting he won't make that mistake again, even if he lives.

The fellow in question is a remarkably talented led guitarist- insanely capable. He is also a Primadonna and rough as a corncob. I had just finished what is likely my last gig with him on Saturday- never again. I'm not sure what I will have Monica do- I just might have him return with an industrial strength case of shell-shock and let it go at that.

A Noodle Incident sounds appropriate . . . perhaps so traumatized that all he remembers is that it was horrible?

And Monica refuses to discuss it beyond "I overreacted".

"Little Girlie" will never end well unless it's a pet name.

Inky Dinky and Al just called a few things to my attention regarding elves- As of now, Sherry Potter is an Air Mage, not an elf or half-elf. I re-wrote that portion, and am much more satisfied with it- go give it a re-read and see what you think. Thanks to Dink an Al for the kick in the shins!

I (Greg Howard) am posting with my late son's computer as mine is on the fritz and I don't remember any of my passwords, either for the site OR my E-Mail. There is much more to this story, but I am fairly hampered at this time.

Once you get your computer back, install BitWarden (or some other password manager). I only bother to remember a couple passwords: the computer's admin password, and the password to get into BitWarden's vault. I have that program on my computer, my phone, and the tablet that I never use because current versions of Android are too secure - and the vault (in encrypted form) is synchronized between all three plus BitWarden's server.

Note though: Bitwarden and the Chrome browser don't get along well.... they claim they do, but Bitwarden+Chromium apparently does not use the same vault as BitWarden+Firefox on the same computer. Also, claims to save new/updated login info, which is not present later.

During the dark ages, man found out he could kill dragons. It escalated from there...
Indeed so. It was a sorry time.

As I recall, the real action occurred in what's now Germany. The humans there learned how to kill dragons... and hunted dragons to extinction.

The Drachen, the Lindwürmer - all gone. Hunted, slaughtered... and ground down to make sausage according to the local recipes.

That's when relations between humans and paras really to a turn for the wurst.

1) you are NOT sorry in the least. 2) you COULD EASILY have resisted. 3) even by YOUR OWN STANDARDS, that was pretty lame. 4) you COULD have sent the blutwurst to ME, as I would appreciate it. (the pun jar HATES blutwurst!).

At a wedding with a tease of a lover,
Charles lost both his cool and his cover-
Glytch's nasty device
made him spew in a trice
and it took him a while to recover.

As he lay in both vomit and fog,
Nudge size him up with this monologue-
"Well bugger my tits
and ain't YOU the shits!
You're naught but a mangy SONG DOG!"

That's a fair criticism. I should properly have said "Perfunctory apologies, Sarge." :P
