ludwig's final gig. (in the UK, for the time being)

If you're going to do something spectacular, van, for gods' sake, remember to station someone nearby with a camera - we need to see the rock!

Yeah, I'm thinking about biting the head off of something or setting something on fire. We'll see.

I shall be there...

Bite the head off something that's already on fire.

*trips over big blob of dried-up plaster, breaks leg*

Ooh, that is too bad, Nice. I had a big batch of plaster to cast IIHAA's leg, but he decided not to break it. If you had broken your leg soooner, you could have used the plas. . . oh.

Oh dear, I hope a broken leg isn't as bad for donkeys as it is for horses.

Cranberry, when you invited us here you made no mention it was a plaster party. I would have changed my plans.
posted by If I Had An Anus at 6:50 AM on June 26, 2006

So would I.
posted by Cranberry at 10:30 AM on June 26, 2006

I apologize, I didn't mean to cast aspirations on any medical endevours.
posted by If I Had An Anus at 1:23 PM on June 26, 2006

Is casting aspirations an Olympic sport?
posted by Cranberry at 12:06 AM on June 27, 2006

How should we know. You live closer to Olympia than any of us. Let's ask Ally.

Next time we move, LETSFLYFISH!

R.I.P. longboat MeTa 9622
Born June 6, 2005, died July 8, 2006.

*Loads oars and trebuchet into longboat, raises sail, sprinkles aqvavit drinks aqvavit, sprinkles kerosene over boat, tosses in torch, pushes boat into current, waves goodbye with intergalactic towel, watches longboat’s Viking funeral*
posted by Cranberry at 1:18 AM on July 8, 2006

*watches own funeral; muses about death, life, the impermanence of all things, blueberry scones and jam, coffee, cats, the meaning of time, multidimensionality, artificial intelligence, whether to call it "farfalle" or "bowtie", pollen allergies, mankind, donkeykind, sugar cubes*

Don't be sad, Nice Donkey. Even good things must end. Only the longboat is gone - the crew have signed on to other ships and will live forever, better for their year maintaining the legend of the longboat.
Have a languagehat special sugar cube and remember the surreal times aboard the good ship 9622. We will always know each other without a special wink or handshake.
Why didn't we establish a special wink or handshake? Next time, eh?
Note that the raedyn tiaras were not in the funeral pyre. Cherish yours proudly.
