Ask The Whelk Anything- Absinthe Edition
posted by Stewriffic 02 June | 16:58
Because I have absinthe.

Does absinthe make the heart grow fonder?

Or make the hard go fondle?

Or make the Henry Fonda?

Or make the fart go 'Honda'?

And is this an excused absinthe or do you have a note from your doctor?

Are you suffering from an absinthe tooth?

I forgot to pay my landline bill and its internet disconnected for a few days. This was a very bad situation and I got a 3g data card to work with. Then that card's network was down for 2-3 crucial hours. Now I'm thinking of getting *another* landline connection and a backup office in a little store we have, like wiring it up with internet so I can just run in there and plug the laptop in if all three previous options are down for some reason. With my luck, should I also prepare for all four things being down at once?

Why haven't I seen you in Minecrack... er... I mean Minecraft lately?
posted by FishBike 02 June | 17:22
Yes to everything goop. Mostly the Honda one.

Firas the answer s to drink only broth for seven days in the dream pit, soon an answer will come.

Fishbike, I've been away and my my attitude now is just admiring it from a distance, I love our make believe computer world and I am proud to have been a apart of it, but like ...anything I'd want to do has been done and there are all these huge bug scale things and I'm just sitting here playing sim city. I can't even even finish the gold dome of the Porkton church. So I am in in tourist mode, looking at things and admiring them and going wow. That's okay with me.

Who put the "fun" in "fundamental"?
posted by flapjax at midnite 02 June | 18:07
It comes from the Latin fundus meaning bottom or base,

Is it a nice floral absinthe?
posted by ethylene 02 June | 18:31
Thank you! Now, who put the "gus" in "fungus"?

And here's another question: it's been a long time since I posted photos here to Photo Friday, and I forgot exactly how to do the crazy HTML surgery required to get a Flickr pic onto MeCha correctly. Can you tell me how to do it? In time for this next Photo Friday? i seem to recall that there were changes made so that it didn't have to be such an arcane and arduous task, but... anyway, I WANNA POST PHOTOS! Please inform!

And Whelk, in case you've run out of absinthe (a noted answer-producing agent), perhaps there's someone else watching this thread who can answer my question? I will give internet hugs to the first person here who can answer the photo posting question. AND, I'll send said person a copy of my CD, Roomful of Ghosts. Promise.

Is Pernod a good substitute? When I first read the Cornelius Chronicles back in the late 1970s I would walk around with a bottle of Pernod in my back pocket. Hey I was a kid who smoked too many Thai sticks.

What does absinthe taste like? I imagine it's similar to anise, but I have no idea why I think that.

Why does everything have to be so complicated?

Why do I have a Black Eyed Peas song stuck in my head? Why? WHY? WHY??!!??

Anise tased ya,
screamed in vain

(Quick! What song is this mondegreen from?)
posted by flapjax at midnite 02 June | 21:12
Absinthe tastes like Good 'n Plenty -- assuming you have enough.

Wait, was I supposed to ask a question???

Why do birds suddenly appear, every time you are near?
posted by jouke 03 June | 03:55
Because I am covered in seeds.

Dang, iPad ate the huge thing I had about how a friend gets a case of pernod shipped to her every month for seemingly no reason, she doesn't order it , she's never charged, just ...poof.

And fungus comes fromo the Latin word for mushroom, fungus.

testing linking from photobucket...

To link from photobucket, you must add the trailing / in the img tag, same as in the posting from flickr fix.
You must also remove the target="_blank" attribute in the "a" tag, and the border="0" attribute from the img tag.

Test to see if Flickr posting still works.
