I'm bax! Travellogue entries will appear synchronously with new ones over the next week and a half.
Here's a new RedSOW I came up with today - feedback is appreciated!

U.R.U.K.
to the tune of Y.M.C.A. (the Village People)
Sun 17 Aug 2003 by Banazir


Young orc, bow down to your Dark God
I said young orc, you were born from a pod
I said young orc, acos you're in a new bod
There's no need to be so trasky

Young orc, run down to Isengard
I said young orc, feed on sweet human lard
You can stay there, and I'm sure you will find
Many babies pickled in green brine

dum! dum! dum! dum! dum!

It's fun to be a big U-R-U-K
It's fun to be a big U-R-U-K, eh?
You can kill lots of tarks
You can brun hobbit parks
You can pillage the Riddermark!

Young orc, serve the Red Lidless Eye
I said young orc, he's a powerful guy
I said young orc, sure as fell beasts can fly
He'll bring Gondor down to its knees

Young orc, come with us to get sloshed
I said young orc, there's some man-flesh to nosh
I said young orc, just watch out for the ghâsh!
It'll brun you real fine and crispy

dum! dum! dum! dum! dum!

It's fun to be a big U-R-U-K
It's fun to be a big U-R-U-K, hey!
You can kill lots of Elves
Then we'll burn Rivendell
And we'll turn Middle-earth into Hell!
(Repeat to fade)

Welcome Back.

So I'm sitting here in Pennsylvania reading this to my husband and a friend and we're all dying of laughter. Very good. Can only imagine the conversation that led up to the creation of this one. :)

Welcome Back.
Thanks!
Acapulco was great - friendly people, relatively clean, good food, sunny every day, time to go to the beach every other afternoon and morning. Our conferences went well, too.

I hope you're having a good time in PA.

If you can believe it, this one was extemporaneous. It took only 14 minutes to compose during last night's TEUNC chat. I came up with the idea when I heard "Y.M.C.A." on the beach (and, IIRC, in some TV nightclub ad) in Acapulco. Nothing like time away from the Midwest to get the creative juices flowing. ;-)

Oh yeah there was that conference thing too wasn't there. ;) Glad you had a good time.

Oh yes. Hadn't realized how much I needed to just relax, chill out and all that. Been great fun.

Ahh yeah the midwest can truly have a stifling effect from time to time. Even better then since it is off the cuff, best kind. :)

Heh, believe me, sometimes it was hard to remember, even though I was there from 08:00 through 17:00...

Glad you had a good time.
I had a great time - and I have a bottle of Revolucion tequila (said to be one of the better varieties from Central MX) and one of Koskoff (a local vodka) to show for it. Oh, and because we were in an hour-long customs queue (with 55 minutes to make my connection through to Kansas City), the desk agent in Houston sent me and my mom back to MCI first-class. I've never flown up front before, as it turns out. Fun.

I hope you're having a good time in PA.

On the way back to Kansas we ran into this Mexican family that was headed to their holiday in PA (Philadephia). My uncle went to grad school in Pittsburgh, so I've been through Harrisburg (on the way up from eastern MD) many times. Whereabouts are you staying?

Not too often, just occasionally (if one gets 2-3 weeks a year away, ennyhoo). Otherwise I'd never have graduated from U. Illinois. :-)

Even better then since it is off the cuff, best kind. :)
I concur!

Wow! First Class....talk about customer service. Glad they made it up to you. ::chuckles:: The Tequilla sounds great. Hope it's as good as it's supposed to be.

Hrmm we are staying in lancaster PA with a friend. Went to NYC on sat and then philladelphia yesterday. phawkwood has chronicled our adventures thus far. Been very enjoyable. I'll be adding my .02 worth in when we get back. But I will say NYC was very weird without the WTC towers there.

Ahhh yes a few weeks away a year is a necessity and graduating is good. ::eyes plans for finding a decent PhD program::

And how!
They dknot let you stop eating and drinking in first class... it's amazzling. I even begged a couple of tiny bottles of Jack Daniels' orf the steward (I was going to give him one of the coupons from the "care package" the ticketing agent gave me and he wouldn't hear of it). Let me just take a moment and give Continental high marks for service (I've flown a lot on Delta and Northwest, and it's been a mixed experience; TWA and USAir, blech).

The Tequilla sounds great. Hope it's as good as it's supposed to be.
I probabubbly won't be making margaritas out of it, in nay case.
It's reputedly a much smoother variety (very clear, no worms cf. the throat-brunning variety). I'll let you know. :-)

Vert cllo.

I look froward to it.
I've been too swamped to transcribe the travellogues I pecked into Sting (my PocketPC 2002 iPAQ) and typed into Vingilot (my ThinkPad), but I'll get them off this CompactFlash card eventually.

But I will say NYC was very weird without the WTC towers there.
Indeed. I think I was in Tower 1 once (though it might have been the ESB) on my 10th birthday in 1983. That was the only day I've ever spent in NYC. I remember seeing the Ice Capades. Didn't get to see much of Broadway, but I do remember catching a glimpse of Times Square.
