Ginger’s WISH makes with the clicky…
Describe one or more occasions when a game went click for you and things fell together. Why do you think this happened? What factors made it possible? What were the consequences?
Over on the 20×20 Room, Ginger (of P.A.M.) talks about the “option c” approach–given a dilemma with bad choices, her characters invariably look for the unpresented choice.
Just like Kirk did in the Kobayashi Maru scenario in the Star Trek universe.
“Buy me some peanuts and …”
“I don’t care if I never get back”
The song has Cracker jack in the ellipsis, and its been sold at Yankee Stadium for
Not any more.
In his race for power, glory and greed, the Yankees have replaced Cracker Jack with Crunch N Munch. at the Stadium.
Cracker Jack has been sold in Yankee Stadium for nearly a century. And now no longer is being so.
It’s scary when the Mets have more respect for tradition than you do.
And besides, I prefer Cracker Jack to Crunch n Munch anyway
Tony Randall, guiding light behind characters ranging from Felix Unger to Dr. Lao has passed away.
One of the ironies of his craft–he won an emmy for his titular role in the Odd Couple only after the show was cancelled.
I can see the political cartoons now. A depiction of heaven, with a cigar butt at the feet of St. Peter, and Tony Randall, dressed up in the full, prim, Felix Unger mode, looking at him with that air of disapproval he perfected on the Odd Couple.
Baseball is not my sport, but even I have to sit up and take notice when Randy “Big Unit” Johnson becomes the oldest pitcher in history to fan 27 batters, 13 of them struck out. No walks, no errors.
A perfect game. At age 40.
My previous entry about the extinction announcement actually involves a reputed crater off the coast of Australia…
It was an extinction event that makes the death of the dinosaurs seem like a hiccup. And this could be one of the major causal elements of same.
In my Campaign, the Thirteen Major Houses of Chaos, and many of the minors have entrances and edifices along the major “street” of Chaos, that runs from the Plaza at the End of the World to the Fire Gate.
This street is known simply as the Boulevard.
Apparently an intriguing NASA press conference set for tomorrow:
