Ooh my little Sithly one, Sithly one.
When you gonna kill more Jedi, Darana?
Ooh you make my Empire run, my Empire run.
From your fancy ship of the line, Darana...

- to the tune of "My Sharona" (no apologies at all to The Knack - see how that works, deire?)

The Rooster has landed! (Or something like that.)
DaranaCon actually got underway on Thursday as masteralida drove out and darana and phawkwood flew. These three called me and masteralida and darana left messages on my mobile phone (whose voicemail I normally check twice a month, but for the anomaly that my phone started vibrating off the clip during CIS 830 lecture). I called back after class, and things were off to a rollicking start! (As much as they could be with only half the contingent.)

chevronsha, the ever-gracious hostess, met up with them on Friday afternoon, and after a goodly 12-hour drive, lonsolo, deire, queenmidalah, and ldymlissa arrived.

Last night, miajesbar and I called and talked to all 8 of the gang on the first night.
A bit of rum was consumed...
Yarr!
(Yeah, that's the first +4 I've ever used.)

As for the webcam and our conversation with the vert slighty drunkn folks, let's just say that some people qian4 da3 ai2: "owe a paddling received", i.e., are overdue for a(nother) trasking. And remember, kids:

phawkwood : deire :: tamf : istari_ala

only it was a gladd1 of rum and not dinner. And so the Wheeeenh was born to go along with the Bha.

1 I find this tyope aesthetically pleasing, so I'm keeping it. A gladd must surely be a glass filled with some yummy drink, salubrious or inebrious.

Re: Analogy
Well, Tolkien's drawing of the Doors of Durin is just that, Tolkien's drawing. The actual Doors of Durin were somewhat different than that presented in LotR, so we can hardly take it as canonical.

Motion for TEUNC
I would like to make a motion that in teunc no one take any character from The Lord of The Rings as canon. Those of use who actually use the name of a canonical character (if it is in English) shall become their own grandfathers. The rest, especially those with Elvish or Westron names, shall trasked with a wet perl script until our names reverse. Afterwards, the name shall be cast into the Cracks of Doom.

Am I rilly that opaque? :-P
phawkwood nicked deire's drink and it became a famos DaranaCon anecdote for the ages;
tamf nicked istari_ala's din-din and it became a famos TEUNCmoot anecdote for the ages.

Re: Opacity
Yes, you are! *troutthwap!* How is anyone supposed to know that?
*boggle*
I quote:
"only it was a gladd of rum and not dinner"
Did you rilly need more context than that?

Do I know about DaranaCon ancdotes - do I know what DaranaCon is?
Prolly knot, unless you read my teunc's friends page (recent gnubies phawkwood and deire especially, and laso octaviakrysk).

Do DaranaCon people know about TEUNC members?
Yesh.
Remember, 4 of them are TEUNCs (deire, phawkwood, darana, and octaviakrysk).

Do all TEUNC members know what happened one evening in Oxford?
Ehh, the stolen dinner is legend, as I said.
It was even in a quiz that I wrote (and I wasn't even there!)

This, my Bana, is what you do - number four - and that doesn't work in most cases.
Eh, wot? As I was saying just last month:
Session Start (banazir:deire (AOL)): Tue Feb 10 20:42:20 2004
...
[21:00:06] banazir: Friendship isn't transitive [...]


Now, you might well accuse me of not practicing what I preach. But see, I'm a mathematician. I believe:

  • Friendship isn't necessarily transitive, but it can be; i.e., we can't in general make it happen, but there's no reason why it can't happen.

  • Friendship can be confluent: A and B can both be friends of C and share information via C (I mean fun teuncy things, which is how I get 90% of stuff from some TEUNCs, not gossip).



Not that I really mind - your journal is unique by being amazingly cryptic and self-referencing without you doing it deliberately to hide something.
LOL, thank you... I think.

It's just you, which is great --- just not gettable! [big grin]
You know, though, I do think that is a serious defect in my writing. I think a lot of things are self-evident from context and history and then I realize belatedly that no one's been paying attention. As you probably realize, one of my foibles is that I tend to assume that people are following along with what I'm saying.

Hey, wait, where y'all going? :-P

How many people do? There's more people in your TEUNC friends page then is in my ENTIRE friends page!

I didn't even know about that! Or if I did, I've long since forgotten...

Err, I meant the Friends filter of teunc (21 people and a moo_hal and helenhal). Yes, I see you have 18, but that might increase - it usually does over time.

I didn't even know about that!

Thomas alva edison was an italian scientist. He discovered the ring to mordor! Though... I do not know of it. Knowledge is the meat derived from varied sources.

Hmmm...."that doesn't alter one's paternity or save one's Jedi master from a mortal blow", I think you should add "or stop your best friend from putting on an all-powerful piece of jewelry." ;)

Or...maybe Sam's not telling Frodo nooo, don't put it on, maybe Sam wanted the ring for himself!!

Is there a third-person gendered Gunganese pronoun?
If so, is it "hesa/sheesa/itsa"?
