not sure if this would be a good spot or not, but
andy kaufman could be alive.
Same link - updated, and false.

Ah, well. Sad to see a good conspiracy fall like that. Sad

Madame Geraldine's school is beginning to remind me of the old movie The Assassination Bureau.... (Worth seeing for anybody that runs a Victorian Spycraft game.)

The second book comes out upon Tuesday of this coming week - Curtsies & Conspiracies.

Thus far I have only read the first three chapters, which are available upon Amazon by way of a free sample - which begins with the vexing question: Does one need four fully grown foxgloves for decorating a dinner table for six guests? Or is it six foxgloves to kill four fully grown guests?

I very much doubt me that this second installment will last unread for even a single evening.

I cannae complain me of marmite - I likes me haggis, and, aye, fares that the worse.
Haggis is good with mustard, otherwise...  eh.  It's a Scottish hot dog, basically.
Well... sausage at any rate - there is a lot more cereal in a haggis than in most hot dogs.

And real haggis has been banned in the USA for a long time.

Only... mostly sure. It would not be the first time that Nazi death records were faked to protect the guilty.

Hmmm, I seem to remember a quote from daVinci that 'most men are naught more use in their lives than as machines to turn food into... uhm... crap'. (Paraphrased heavily from a novel by Lois McMaster Bujold.)

I still think of her as Carol - the receptionist on Bob Newhart. (And again as a one shot on Murphy Brown - where a very cranky Bob shows up and bribes her to come back.)

She had the most incrediby blue eyes.

Another from Puppets War -


Hmmm... I am thinking of Project: Pitfall with these... though if one of them shouted 'Cobra!' then I would not be at all surprised....

I am kind of surprised to see Chronoscope - the Reaper folks caught a fair amount of flak over them last time.
