Dark Bilious Vapors

But how could I deny that I possess these hands and this body, and withal escape being classed with persons in a state of insanity, whose brains are so disordered and clouded by dark bilious vapors....

02/23/2005: Skyway

I was taking a detour around some Spring Construction and Repairs going on here at Dennis Hastert Corner and ended up negotiating my way via the Outer orbit of Puto. Sheesh...musta lost my way cause I got caught orbiting that frozen rock from Hell and it's itty bitty little moon. And there I was...all by myself..not a soul in sight. Just lots 'o' radiation dust and other competing Black Holes. I'm mostly made of Black Hole material too---Stuff from all over the Universe fall inside of me, but most if it never makes it out to see the light of day again. But these were sassy Black Holes from the Universe of Beyond......they were jealous of me and my abilities to commune with Earth and Nature and Understand Stuff because I think therefore I am.

I tried to get them to Buzz off, but No Dice. Luckily I'd brought my CD's along with me, so I set those pesky Black Holes to dancing the night away. So if any of you felt the disturbance of those stars an heels being kicked up...I was just me keeping them Black Holes out of my face. Though our Full Moon might have lent me a hand but was too distracted by all the Crazees back here on Earth.

I wouldn't have been stuck so long in that vicious Orbiting Traffic jam of Vectors and Black holes, except I've lost my Navigational Star Mapping program. It's a downloadable Universe and you can navigate around inside of and visit other Galaxies. But, watch out, it does need lots of kilobytes of hard drive space and a kick-ass computer to run it. But now I've lost it. I will try to find it again (I think it was from those Scientific American folks from last year) and post where to download this amazing program. Though, I did find some very nice Road Side Assistance from Joe Rao at Skyway.

Oh, but "there's no place like Home."
