    Red Sonja.

    imaginary animal friends:

    Berengaria the Brachiosaurus - friendly neighborhood dinosaur with a curious habit of switching her appearance from that of her actual existence in nature--what Gwyneth Paltrow might call a "Darth Maul meets punk rock" look before an unimpressed T. Rex started a thread calling on his fellow biped carnivores to dispatch her--and the gentler, kid-friendly, longer-necked Brontosaurus of children's textbooks. Comparatively Lilliputian friends wear gas masks in her odorous presence; she used to think that these masks were her companions' actual faces. Now suspecting that they're really organic, green-man-like coverings, she tries to eat them, as Don José has just learned to his near-fatal cost.
    Michael the Bull - sometimes ill-tempered, more often cheerful taurine speculator and recreational dancer. Gored one of the producers of Soul Train for refusing to have him on after he wrought havoc on the set of Dance Party USA. Big fan of Dennis Coffey. Needs to stop quoting Scent of a Woman and The Godfather Part III(!) all the damn time.
    Edward the Hyracodon - decent LaRouchefoucauldian moralist of the group (whose abhorrence of sloppy thinking spares most Foucauldians but none of the LaRouchites). Antique book collector and occasional potter who fires the kiln all by himself.
    Tennyson the Tapir - well-meaning dullard of a woolly tapir who plays chess with Edward via e-mail; tried to get a philosophy club going but gave up on it after six weeks of high schoolish "Is there a personal God?" debates. A good swimmer but an incompetent diver.
    Thylias the Tapir - friend and occasional sparring partner of Edward. Though often solitary (the better to compose verse and forage for berries), she takes time to explain Limited Flehmen Theory to fellow tapirs and other creatures with an interest in poetic, olfactory, and three-dimensional approaches to mammalian literature, psychology, and epistemology.
    Don José del Escocés the Weasel - nimble, industrious, somewhat entitled Mustela nivalis with an inclination to costumed, high-stakes disputation. Was rescued from a chewy demise thanks to Michael's butting and and his own well-projected vocalizations. Will go for the jugular (literally) of anyone who speaks ill of Tessa Virtue or PwC Canada.
    Purple I'm reporting this post right now.

    You've really outdone yourself this time, f_d.

    I'm opting for Tennyson the Tapir, as I suspect that he (or she ) is actually sharp as mustard and thinks of herself (sorry, himself) as a dullard only because of the fear that someone else will get the insult in first. She (oh sorry, he), for some reason known not to me and probably not to her (sorry, him) either, makes the Brobdingnagian error of supposing that she (sorry, he) is not really up to scratch. And there's the rub; we all have a weakness and that's Tennyson's.
    School report: A for Philosophy, B+ for swimming and C- for diving.

    PS. Tapirs are not woolly; doesn't the author know anything at all?

    Wikipedia lied to the author.

    Sustainable water, though it's hard to choose.

    1) #993

    2) What would the author do without Wikipedia?

    use actual encyclopedias
    simply do without the easy information
    run her own geocities-caliber site with skating results tables and choleric posts about Bourne/Kraatz
    read more books
    get out more
    maintain a vegetable garden in the side yard
    take up bowling

    Hmph. No spot for Tennyson at the London Oratory then. At this rate, Islington Green will find some way of rejecting him/her/er.

    You don't want to go there; you might bump into Leo Blair the Younger.

    Then I'd be disappeared, emerging only later during a 22nd-century excavation of Gielgud's old country pile.

    Or not. Anyway, there's always Holland Park Comprehensive...I guess.

    Oui.

    Does "getting on with it" mean starting the thread now, or going up to exactly 1,000 posts?

    It means starting now.
    It means going up to 1,000 posts.
