Plunder the Monkeys

Or, and that's the correct way of putting it, Plunder Island, the definitive (?) Monkey Island inspired Unreal Tournament mod, you (and me) will soon be able to download from the exquisite plunder3d.net website. Not yet though. All we can all do for now is wait. And marvel at the mod's screenshots. Even visit plunder3d and see a teaser video.

See? There's also a theatre. For pirates of course.

Weird birds those. Will they be shootable?

There should be a barber somewhere...

    ReplyDelete
  3. Thanks Mr. Elderly, even though it will only last for less than a day :)

    Oh, and you haven't seen those blood thirsty chickens of Plunder Island...

    ReplyDelete
  4. pirates first then we get the chickens!

    ReplyDelete
  5. well show some enthusiasm...pirates first........

    your line: have at them!

    then the chickens

    your line: ay the blood thirsty varmints!

    ReplyDelete
  6. Damn! I never knew... Sorry captain. Off to the sharks with me then...

    ReplyDelete
  7. they have sharks too! crikey! now he tells me.......right! trim the mainsail, hoist the bloggy roger!

    on a point of reference, do sharks eat gnomes?

    ReplyDelete
  8. I'm not sure... What I know though, is that gnomes do eat sharks. Sharks' fins mostly and in Chinese soup form, but I guess it does put us in a position of absolute power...

    ReplyDelete
  9. your right, sharks wouldn't bother making soup first.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Of course not. They only truly enjoy a quiche.

    ReplyDelete
  11. figures! soups probably too hot for em!

    ReplyDelete
  12. And far too watery to be had underwater too.

    ReplyDelete
  13. ergo, gnomes are indeed far superior to sharks.....

    ReplyDelete
  14. And to other fish too.

    ReplyDelete
  15. ahmmmmmmmm yes! though I'm not so sure about Poecilia reticulata.....

    ReplyDelete
  16. I can't help you here.. is the thing edible?

    ReplyDelete
  17. .......guppy fish, and yes most living things are edible, probably not in one sitting though (eg elephant)

    ReplyDelete
  18. HA HA HA!!!

    Sorry for that, silly mood and good joke!

    ReplyDelete
  19. certainly a conversation for our 15th tequila.....

    ReplyDelete
  20. and one that could last all the way to the 17th

    ReplyDelete
  21. if you could carry on a coversation under the table.... i might reach the 17th,

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh, come on.... perhaps Tequillas over there are just stronger than hours?

    Besides, we do have a strong bootleging national tradition.

    ReplyDelete
  23. so do we...... it's the quantity in our glasses though issa bitta af e problem.

    Poteen is our poison of choice, known to put hairs on seagulls.....

    whats yours called?

    ReplyDelete
  24. i do remember not remembering an entire evening in Crete after countless bottle of retsina, or was it tequila fizzes. Can't remember

    ReplyDelete
  25. Crete is notorious for its bad quality Retsina :) The Raki on the other hand is quiet excellent, and much stronger!

    Oh, and mine is called... I dont know

    ReplyDelete
  26. We actually don't let people know its bootleged. Only the ensuing headache tells you that...

    ReplyDelete
  27. thats a neat (no pun intended) trick, we normally warn people, as the cost of hospital treatment often leads to a civil legal suit.

    I can see the logic in not informing people though.

    ReplyDelete
  28. One can't do much, at least not legaly, against anything the people of the Night (argot: "Night") do. Besides, some bootleged drinks have quite interesting tastes, even though they remain quite deadly. And can lead to eyesight loss too.

    Fine drinks! (Never -ever- drink in a greek club. Only in bars)

    ReplyDelete
  29. (takes note) clubs out bars in...gottit

    (dreams of myriad tasting sessions)

    ReplyDelete
  30. And, always prefer the bar anarchists prefer... Apparently they've got a nose for good quality alcohol...

    ReplyDelete
  31. anarchists! who'd have thought!
    (takes nother noteir note)

    Bohemians also i believe, think, probably, perhaps, maybe, i dunno? great taste but never any money....

    ReplyDelete
  32. Can't say much about Bohemians... I do think they are in HUngary though, right? Haven't tasted one either...

    ReplyDelete
  33. nor have I, i must ask at the deli counter...

    ReplyDelete
  34. I think they are expensive though....

    BTW, have you noticed how all these "topsites" are lowering Google's PageRank?

    ReplyDelete
  35. no.....first i've heard, is this good or bad?

    ReplyDelete
  36. They say (the strange voices) it's not good... But if you get decent traffic from topsites, then I guess it's worth it... Not all of them are negative though... Only the ones with page rank 0.

    ReplyDelete
  37. so if i carry a link for a topsite with a zero ranking my google rank goes down......damn i need some education......

    ReplyDelete
  38. Still, I'm not a 100% sure... I'll remove them all andsee... Just not yet...

    ReplyDelete
  39. i've just removed two, that have been acting up since i've added them, time will tell

    ReplyDelete
  40. I removed all of them.. No changes yet..

    ReplyDelete
  41. all quiet on the western front here as well.........(puts on helmet) just in case........

    ReplyDelete
  42. I'll wear one too I guess. You never know...

    ReplyDelete
  43. (stares over the parapet.....)ouch bloody helmet strap just cut my nose

    (fixes band aid to nose, secures helmet strap, looks over the parapet)

    Nothing to report!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I've got to report that Italy hasn't scored yet... and this can turn out really bad...

    And the PageRank hasn't changed here...

    ReplyDelete
  45. pizza, cigs, a cool can of holstein, portugal v France......46th comment

    page ranking naffected, though blogger is acting up this evening.

    on a side note, it's going to cost me the bones of €300 to replace my crt monitor with a tft screen, unbeleivably they have no crt monitors for sale..........

    ReplyDelete
  46. I think PR is monthly updated...
    47th comment, 7 euro keyboard.

    Have you looked at second hand hardware shops?

    ReplyDelete
  47. gonna have to now..darn my flexible friend/satans handmaiden, wont stretch that far.........thanks for the tip, it hadn't immediately occured to me..........as i mope and ponder the tanned screen......

    €7 is such a bargain........

    (applause)

    ReplyDelete
  48. And a SEGA MasterSystem for another 12e... But, I actually didn't buy that. Could have though....

    ReplyDelete
  49. neat second hand store, only junk shops round here.....still i'm gonna take me a wander on Saturday......

    ReplyDelete
  50. Well it's the first *decent* second hand electronics store to appear in athens, and it's in such a convenient place...

    You should visit it someday.

    Or at least if your saturday stroll doesn't unearth something worthy.

    ReplyDelete
  51. anecdotally, Athens is in my list of places to visit before i die tome. (considers obsession with lists.......briefly)

    Pound stretchers (they never changed the name) is the best my little town can offer......chipped blessed virgin mary statues, plastic flowers, well worn hotel cutlery.....but maybe i'll get lucky.......nah who am i kiddin

    ReplyDelete
  52. Visit Athens. Live your Myth. Then have nice cheap good quality Tequilla and you'll off to visit dozens of museums (and of course the Acropolis). just make sure to avoid the police.

    Pound stretchers :) Imaginative.

    ReplyDelete
  53. no i've gotta find nana mouskouri first.....then the acropolis

    ReplyDelete
  54. I really don't thing she's around here... The right wingers sent her to the EU parliament thingy... Not sure though... But, worry not. There are lot of places (3 or 4 actually) where a weary tourist can listen to some ok music.

    ReplyDelete
  55. okay then.......Kaiti Livanou?

    (bookmarks post, as its getting increasingly difficult to scroll)

    ReplyDelete
  56. The name seems vaguely familiar... But... no.. can't remember her? Pornstar perhaps?

    ReplyDelete
  57. it would be an interesting career change but no she's a traditional greek singer.....

    Although she would probably make more in the porn industry........

    let me see..... (takes out greek singers I must meet before i die tome)

    ReplyDelete
  58. That must be quite a to-do library you've got there. Still, don't know the lady... She doesn't ring any bells...

    ReplyDelete
  59. Despina Vandi? Vicky Leandros?

    ReplyDelete
  60. Too un-telented (and far to shoved right down our throats) and too obscure...

    ReplyDelete
  61. okay i give up, I am now officially closing the greek singers i must see before i die book. Guess i'll go with your recommendations, but I will need to visit a plate smashing venue or is that not cool.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Unfortunately, and this is a tragedy of typical Greek proportions, place smashing is something that's very difficult to find. One would have to visit really "situ" truck-driver bouzouki-joints on the national roads. Could be a tad dangerous, and to be honest even there plate-smashing isn't guaranteed :(

    Obviously, mainstream places only feature flower-throwing. And they suck ass (as the South Park kids would say)...

    ReplyDelete
  63. darn so i've left it too late, still i could bring a few plates with me....or porcelain flowers perhaps.....if the worst comes to the worst i can probably buy a cd of plate smashing sound effects........they still do tequila slammers i hope......

    ReplyDelete
  64. Plate-smashing Cds... Another brilliant idea dear Sir.. Oh,and what is a Tequilla slammer? I'm acquainted with the tequilla part, mind you..

    ReplyDelete
  65. tequila shot, tall sturdy glass (slim jim) fresh sprite or white lemonade filled up to about a third the glass height.

    seal the top of the glass with the palm of your hand, lift the glass and slam it back down on the counter,

    eh voila sprite fizzes up to fill the glass, drink immediately......

    fiznnisseningly intoxicating

    and obviously no longer popular.....

    ReplyDelete
  66. Seems like fun, but I guess it lost its popularity due to the complexity of the procedure... No drunk person can slam anything, anywhere...

    Sittl, I could give it a try...

    Let's hope the glass doesn't shatter...

    ReplyDelete
  67. This comment has been removed by a blog administrator.

    ReplyDelete
  68. jeez im going to have nightmares now, use a sturdy glass, not a dinky domestic one, (checks his cupboard full of borrowed bar glasses) here try this one.........

    and anecdotaly(?) i did manage to slam my head quite sucessfully into a footpath once, after a feed of canadian club, admitedly i was a much younger elderly person then.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Those were the days I premuse... Oh, the freedom of being a younger Mr. Elderly... I can only imagine.

    Oh, and thanks for the glass tip. It probably saved my hand :)

    I have borrowed a few excellent glasses from a Bar in Berlin that should perfectly do the job...

    ReplyDelete
  70. okay...as a precaution i've sent Gnome nurse around....shes had a little clean up at my place and has completely altered her unhygenic practice of licking open wounds .....the good news is she has extensive experience with amputations, should the unthinkable happen, she's asked that you have some ice cubes handy.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Oh, dear god... No. She's lying. Never cut anything off. Don't trust her...

    NEVER LET HER TOUCH THE SAW

    I'll be right there!

    ReplyDelete
  72. (a dark shadow looms behind elderly)

    hello gnome? are you there? what?
    hello.....

    (the phone goes dead, elderly tries to piece together his friends last words.......)

    the guys lost it......

    (the shadow grows larger on the wall behind the old man)

    ReplyDelete
  73. ....fwwwt...
    ....swooshhh...

    (gnome landing)

    slaaash!

    (there goes the nurse)

    fst!

    (beer opening)

    All fine?

    ReplyDelete
  74. (before elderly can even put down the receiver, Psycho gnome nurse is lying on her back, three shurikens lodged in her forehead and gnome is sitting on the couch)

    What happened? how did you know?

    Gnome!!! you saved my life........
    here have some prezels with that

    ReplyDelete
  75. Thank you my friend, thank you...

    I've brought the beer!

    ReplyDelete
  76. I'll get rid of gnome nurses body first, we don't want people thinking we're insensitive........

    uuuggggggghhh damn shes heavy....urrrgg...... wait!

    where am i going to put her?

    ReplyDelete
  77. We could burry her in the garden. She is of the garden variety after all...

    ReplyDelete
  78. gnome your a genius......

    ahmm sorry for questioning you, but what'll happen in a few days..

    wont she "go off"

    ReplyDelete
  79. Nothing will happen, as long as nobody removes the nice pink wee stake from her heart...

    ReplyDelete
  80. (stares at pink stake, tiny writing on the side says, please do not remove, elderly is still aprehensive about the discovery of a dead gnome in his front garden, but he trusts his friend and finds a nice spot for the nurse beside the hydrangea)

    (out of breath......)
    okay thats her taken care of
    (washes the shuriken he had taken from gnome nurses head)
    here you better take these....

    ReplyDelete
  81. Why, yes, I should

    (hides shurikenn in elaborate robe)

    And worry not for the police... they want find anything...100% g.g. (gnome guarantee)

    ReplyDelete
  82. (the friends seal the deal with some fine barley wine....suddenly there a knock on the door)

    who could that be?

    ReplyDelete
  83. (four strippers enter the room)

    Gnome! what have you done....

    (strippers take out blow torches and start stripping the paint of elderlies doors......)

    Stop! hey!

    ReplyDelete
  84. Certainly a mix up at the phone.Mut have called the wrong agencies... Send them away...
    I'll get us pizzas and beer.

    ReplyDelete
  85. (ushers last of stripper out of room, the smell of burnt paint permeates the small room)

    we should sue, maybe i'll do the phoning this time.....whadda ya havin on yer pizza?

    ReplyDelete
  86. Pepperoni, meatballs, ham, bacon, spam, spam, salami, 4 cheese thing, tomatoe, spam, bacon and spam. Oh, and some beef. And green pepper.

  88. Great-great man-thing... Mr. Elderly I meant... Of course.

    Amazing the way you instructed them in the arts of finding the evershifting dojo..

    Anything else we need?

    ReplyDelete
  89. (elderly thinks really hard.... only quite recently had he started dining with Gnomes and was unsure of the etiquette or indeed what should follow next.........rather than offend his friend he descided to play it safe..)

    plates?

    ReplyDelete
  90. Of course not...
    What are hands for?

    No, no plates...

    Ah yes... Soda.

    ReplyDelete
  91. hands yes of course how silly of me and soda of course, yes soda would be nice........

    (unsure whether he should sit down first or let gnome sit first.....so he stands... waiting...)

    ReplyDelete
  92. Oh please..do sit down... Nothing to worry about.

    Ah, the pizza!

    I'll get it.

    ReplyDelete
  93. okay i'll get the cutlery...

    (elderly is quite happy he hasn't managed to offend gnome yet..... and carefully places a knife, fork and dinner napkin at gnomes place......them sits down)

    ReplyDelete
  94. Hmm.
    yes.

    Oh,well, whatever, never mind....

    (gnome dives in pizza)

    ReplyDelete
  95. splendid! dive right in there gnome, am i'll pour your soda for you....

    (elderly wonders if what he had heard about hungry gnomes was actually true)

    ReplyDelete
  96. hey ...... you just read my mind....and posted the 100th comment....... surely a record of some sort.....

    ReplyDelete
  97. So this is the 102nd? Hardly believable... The record comitee will rape us.

    ReplyDelete
  98. best action i've seen in 5 years...... just a second, are there females on the record committee?

    ReplyDelete
  99. None that I've heard of. Better be careful...

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  102. chomp! okay....... NOOOO! gnome that's only for emergencies.....

    (dives across the table as gnome brings the cyanide capsule to his lips......the two bloggers careen onto the floor..... and lay their motionless......the empty cyanide capsule rolls to a stop on the dusty floor)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  106. grab that drinking straw, we'll stomach pump the cat.......

    ReplyDelete
  107. Sounds nasty... Good...

    She (it) is far toold actually...

    Stomach pumping it is then. Let's save the poor beast.

    ReplyDelete
  108. (the two figures kneel beside the shivering cat, what is lying on her back ..... Gnome gently inserts the drinking straw in the dying cats mouth... elderly starts moving her tail up and down)

  111. (elderly close his eyes........ the cat spews a gigantic cat furball tinged with carrots...into the middle of the floor)

    why is the furball moving.....? Gnome the furball is moving...

    Gnome don't look like that she's your cat..... why is the furball moving?

    ReplyDelete
  112. ZZZAaaaaaapp!

    Ok. Done with the cat. Now to deatroy the Katamari furball and make sure the hideous hell-dog from Andalusia doesn't do anything hideously hellish.

    It wouldn't be nice my friend. Trust me on this...

    ReplyDelete
  113. i've got a weak stomach....... wow it's my first katamari furball..... hold it still i'll get my camera.....

    (runs out of house, downs hill, catches bus.......

    ReplyDelete
  114. It did take a bit longer than expected... The dog is loose and the Katamari won't smile.

    Damn.

    (gnome chokes Katamari, then smiles)

    ReplyDelete

    Well Elderly did you know that Katamari eat dogs?

    Most interesting

    ReplyDelete
  117. Katamari eat....... nah your kiddin.... though it would be the first ever picture of such an event..... we could syndicate it to reuters...

    maybe we should ask the dog how he feels about it, we'll need his release paw print anyway....

    ReplyDelete
  118. Which will of course (and as is customary) lead us to immense riches and the careless life of the well off!!

    Congrats my wise friend!

    ReplyDelete
  120. It might be, i dunno.... picks up lyre...

    can't buy me love, love, love, love
    gave you a diamond ring........

    ReplyDelete
  121. Woody Alen would say that buying love isn't necessary as long as one can rent enough.

    They don't call him Woody the wise for nothing...

    ReplyDelete
  122. though Woody is a godlike no doubt, I wuld question is it real love..... you know the kind that makes even the lack of alcohol seem like a minor problem

    I don't think so..... no (takes out his indian zetar)

    can't buy me love.....

    ReplyDelete
  123. Clever Richard8/24/06, 10:38 PM

    Love is a condition or phenomenon of emotional primacy, or absolute value. Love generally includes an emotion of intense attraction to either another person, a place, or thing; and may also include the aspect of caring for or finding identification with those objects, including self-love.

    ReplyDelete
  124. Even though I would never dream of contradicting Richard, I'd like to point out that my love does indeed buy me things...

  126. when you "customised" did you have to set up the google ads and buttons all over again....?

    only the blogger search function doesn't discover old posts since before the changeover to beta

    ReplyDelete
  127. Yep.... everything was redone from scratch... Thankfully I had my template saved and managed to copy&paste stuff from it.


    (gnomes said, while washing his feet)

    ReplyDelete
  128. I'm going to have to do it sooner or later, but I is worried i'll muck it up........ oh well in for a cent in for a euro....... tommorrow....

    ReplyDelete
  129. You could try to backup your blog first... I can't remember where but I'm sure I've seen such services...

    ReplyDelete
  130. i'll copy the script into Word first, all the finicky bits will be on the sidebar, so it shouldn't be so bad........ i read a bit tonight and indeed blogger have said they'll keep a copy of the older blog, just in case..... cmere thanks for the help, im much clearer on what i have to do

    ReplyDelete
  131. NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

    No Word. Use notepad and save in txt (ascii) format. You'll need pure text here...

    Phew.

    Gnome sits.
    Has a drink.

    Want one?

    ReplyDelete
  132. phecking heck.... I never knew.. so words on the side of evil... notepad it is.... thank god i came back here.... (empties glass, pours another one)

    on an entirely different note, by blog wont load........ maybe it's just my browser, imagine that theres beta for you.... server error pah!

    ReplyDelete
  137. "It does load now though", said gnome right after spitting a worm and reclaiming a glass.

    "There must have been a general blogger.com prob for many blogs didn't load", he added.

    "worry not"

    ReplyDelete
  138. my minds a complete sea of tranquility.......

    thanks for checking buddy....

    ReplyDelete
  139. I have never even touched buddy, let alone check on him. This is not this kind of place... It's a bloody Lair you know.

  141. So... now that our unrivaled masculinity fended off horrid attacks, let's celebrate the Greek win over the American team, in this weird sport called basketball... World Cup finals... Wow.

    ReplyDelete
  142. Hurayyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!
    (pops a streamer...blows buggle.... waves Greek flag......) so what reason did the American team give for not winning...?

    ReplyDelete
  143. No silly reasons actually.

    They were quite generous and gracious in loosing! Quite impressiv and takes the fun out of the whole thing... After all it's the first time in years I actually wanted Greece to win anything... And Basketball... pah... silly sport...

    ReplyDelete
  144. it's the only sport i ever excelled at, though we were considered weird, until we won the county schools cup.... then we were heroes for a day... ahhh happy bouncy memories...

    have a gimpy knee all because of it....

    bet your heart was beating against your ribs..... happy Americans bowed gracefully it's a neat change. Anyway where were we

    oh yeah (raises Greek flag... pops a streamer in the air, sets fire to a dozen cream crackers, blows plastic horn.....

    ah scratch the cream crackers insert fire crackers...

    congratulations

    ReplyDelete
  145. Why thank you.I didn't do anything though... Still... it was a rather interesting tournament, despite not watching more than 100 minutes of it. Thankfully it's over...

    Other than that, I didn't know you were an athletic young Elderly... Basketball too.. Never really managed this game. Football on the other hand...

    ReplyDelete
  146. (hangs his head in shame) let in ten goals one time..... never played again..... oh the shame.... stopped one with my face though...... but a different match unfortunately.

    While the elderly have it down to a tee I was unaware that gnomes are renowned for their dribbling

    ReplyDelete
  147. Not so much dribbling as physical play and crossing... Ah, yes fun times... must have been 10+ years... Oh, dear.

    Still... far too much running involved for my current likes.

    Oh, and are you by any chance exceedingly tall Mr Elderly?

    ReplyDelete
  148. no but springy legs, well i had.... there a bit more jello springy these days.... and white.....

    ah the good ol days..... (reaches for a high pass, dribbles in from the side of the net.... (borrows gnomes hankie!!) sorry!

    ReplyDelete
  149. Just don't overuse the hankie my friend I'll be needing it too... Ah...

    Perhaps we should attempt cutting down on smoking? One more time?

    It might be worth it you know. You'd be basketball hopping all over the place again...

  150. I have no doubt, that a general but unspecific unwellness is due to my nicotine dependance. Yet giving up is a frightening concept..... (lights a cigarette) though a great and noble and ultimately life saving idea...

    i is so dumb

    ReplyDelete
  151. Me too dumb too...

    Still, smoking is indeed a provider of great and day long sattisfaction AND helps people and gnomes actually organize their thoughts...

    ReplyDelete
  152. and a very useful indicator as to whether i've enjoyed a dvd or not.. the more enthralled i am the less i smoke..... hey what a great idea for a review system.....

    1 hour of oblvion 1 ciggy
    1 hour bloodrayne 6 ciggies

    aliens DVD 2 ciggies
    Silent hill one packet

    ReplyDelete
  153. Amazing... Now that's a rating system worth patenting (despite us libertarian gnomes being against patents)... You could also do movie reviews you know.... Really...
    Cig rated you'd call the blog...

    ReplyDelete
  154. you reckon? it's certainly worth a shot...... i can see it now, cigarettes ads on the side, pictures of females smoking...... xrays of tar filled lungs.....

    ReplyDelete
  155. I do believe you 'd bo much better without the X-rays in plain view... You could even argue for the positive sides of smoking and then go on to create the Vodka Rated web... Alcohol didn't hurt anyone, did it?

    ReplyDelete
  156. ah not immediately...

    thank you most sincerely for digging my game ads post, my face is still off colour.... that's quite a collection of diggs you've got there,

    ReplyDelete
  157. Why don't you start one too? Really, digg is a great source of material...

    Really, really...

    I also started rewatching Black Adder. Hilarious. Better than digg.

    ReplyDelete
  158. I wish i could catch a current series of reruns, i was fortunate enough to watch one episode ever, it was hilarious..... the box sets are way off the mark for price......

    oh .....now where did i put my bit torrent........

    ReplyDelete
  159. sorry forgive me.... i lapsed, well i've signed up, installed the firefox tool bar..... can i post pron?

    ReplyDelete
  160. Why, of course... I thought you 'd never ask... oh, and... cough...iso..cough..hunt..cough...

    Rowan Atkinsosn. What a star eh?

    ReplyDelete
  161. ah yes and what a

    "torrent" cough! sex ahem! .com

    of fun that would be.....

    ReplyDelete
  162. You are of course talking about the .com economy boom... Quite an interesting phenomenon indeed...

    ReplyDelete
  163. indeed of course, whey quite correctly nothing at all to do with torrentsex.com

    oh shit!

    ReplyDelete
  164. Ah yes, a devious and rather cunning trick to upset all porn watching perverts. Good job, Elderly... Brilliant!

    ReplyDelete
  165. i'm so sorry, can we rub it out.... I can paint over it?.... damn there goes my stupid hands again, typing things without thinking.....

    i feel so ashamed........

    ReplyDelete
  166. I wouldn't be... Really... "Whores of Whorecraft" are so much more interesting after all...

    ReplyDelete
  167. my heavens they are.... but I would argue not a patch a certain

    "rapid-share" torrent link list on
    livejournal.com

    however it is a matter for debate....

    (opens new tea bag carton....)

    ReplyDelete
  168. Will it be a debate or more of a discourse, then?

    Tea smells nice though...

    ReplyDelete
  169. no it's a experiential discussion, if you don't like it, I accept that as the answer for your reality, I don't disagree.... we're mature adults here...

    you want some marshmallow bunnies with that tea?

    ReplyDelete
  170. Yes!!!

    Then we could discuss Nietzsche's crypto-idealism... And why Spiderman never actually had sex with Batgirl...

    ReplyDelete
  171. (floats two marshmallow bunnies on Gnomes noddy and big ears mug....)

    not familiar with Nietzsche's crypto thingy... but I'm fairly confident that Superman had a steady girlfriend at the time... which with understanding of Krypton culture was enough to put him off his stroke...

    (passes gnome an extra marshallow rabitt)

    ReplyDelete
  172. Brilliant stuff, those bunies you know. But, what are they made of?

    ReplyDelete
  173. ...marshmallow stuff.... (notices the curtains begining to change colours and the carpet begins to spin....)

    oh oh!

    I suppose this means i probable can't go to Paris

    ReplyDelete
  174. But of course you can... Why should it mean you shouldn't? Should I have understood something?

    ReplyDelete
  175. i mean how you could possibly trust a person that gets you stoned without due regard for your health and safety, supposing i had given you a large bunny marshmallow.... no dread the thought......

    on a seriouslier note, are those sleep bags under your eyes? hope your not burning ye candle at both ends... we need to hang onto the black ones for the autumnal elcipse....

    ReplyDelete
  176. Well, I'm trying to get some sleep. From time to time at least.

    Yous see a deadline is rapidly approaching, despite using cunning political tactics to push it back.

    Unfortunately, having to get ceremoniously drunk at least twice a week and sustain a hint of social/fun life doesn't make matters easier... The blog is thus pushed back.

    Anyway. Do come to Paris. MArshmallows don't frighten me.. Neither do post-modernists.

    ReplyDelete
  177. bah post modernists.... our posting system is still in the dark ages.... and costing us a fortune.....

    (completely sure he's got the wrong post modernists, elderly pushes on....)

    indeed deadlines wouldn't be deadlines unless you were hungover, seems that new bar you discovered is to blame for a lot.....

    here just in case.... i've cooked a good old irish stew... get on the outside of that and you'll be grand

    or as your mother might say

    "I hope your eating properly"

    ReplyDelete
  178. Ah, a stew, excellent... Well the greek ones at least, haven't tried the Irish variety, but judging from our respective post systems it should be on the traditional side of things, thus avoid the sick post-modern cuisine... Bring it on, I say...

    Food. Yes, good. Especially when properly eaten.

    And haven't been to the new bar for more than 10 days. Returned to older places...

    ReplyDelete
  179. (pours out stew.....) no need for knives and forks..... Get on the outside of that, it'll do you good.....

    ........mind it's boiling hot.....!!

    older places..... ah yes.... i yearn for smoke filled beer soaked rooms......

    well apart from my home that is.....

    ReplyDelete
  180. Ah, yes, the ol' irish law on bars. A disgrace for mankind...

    mmmmm

    excellent food. Excellent. Wish only I could smoke a bit. It's good for the stomach you know...

    ReplyDelete
  181. i hope so.... at the rate i swallow cigarettes food is a secondary consideration...... hey isn't Digg the dog's bollocks?

    ReplyDelete
  182. I would be quick to agree with you kind sir, if only of course I knew what "the dog's bollocks" are...

    As long of course as you don't literaly mean "the dog's bollocks", in which case digg is quite frankly not it. It's more of a social bookmarking thingy...

    And stop smoking for a minute there...

    ReplyDelete
  183. (....panics, lights another cigarette....)

    are you serious about the conscription, that a bloody right pain...... surely there's a reprieve for bloggers... who do i complain to?

    ReplyDelete
  184. The dog I presume... And while you are at it please ask about this bollocks thingy...

    ReplyDelete
  185. bollocks are the dangly things underneath a male dogs body... ergo the dogs bollocks are ......

    liathroidi in Irish

    ReplyDelete
  186. Yes, yes, I know what bollocks are, but I still don't get the damn expression's meaning. "liathroidi"?

    ReplyDelete
  187. the dogs bollocks is a relatively new euphemism which has replaced the bees knees.

    Ergo anything thats the dogs bollocks is cool or the best thing ever....

    liathroidi is the irish word for balls.... lee road dee

    ReplyDelete
  188. Ah.. excellent. Now everything is clear dear friend. Thanks for the (free) lesson...

    ReplyDelete
  189. (stuffs Gnomes limited edition tequila bottle down back of trousers)

    no problem... if you can't teach Irish to a friend for nothing who can you teach it to for nothing.....

    nope free free i always say, money, material objects... you can't take it with you.... speaking of not being able to take it with you...

    is that the time?

    ReplyDelete
  190. Yes, yes, better be going dear. I want to sleep early tody. I'll just have a sip from my precious hand-crafted by my poor grandmather and very collectable tequila bottle and then just lay on my gnome's little bed....

    ReplyDelete
  191. ahhh wait! that's probably a very very bad idea...... no hot milk... i 'll fix you some hot milk instead.. tequila resting in your stomach all night...

    no it's burn through to your kidneys... no no i won't hear of it......

    (a bead of sweat breaks out on the elderly head as he feels the tequila bottle starting to slip....)

    Great post on digg by the way, congratulations?

    ReplyDelete
  192. Ah, yes thnk you, more of a lucky thing... Now, I'm all excited... Can't sleep. Let's celebrate my friend. I'll just go get us the special tequila!

    Horraaaaah!
