One development that's evolving from the painful absence of our beloved Jill: her devoted followers and sundry apostles relating the holy word and gospel of Jill. We could start a beautiful leather (vegan faux-leather) bound truth book complete with parables, Twisty's return to Obstreperon, etc. It would prove to be far more edifying and revolutionizing than the P's version from (roughly) 2009 years ago.

Dilly, as I recollect, it don't never ever rain at El Rancho. Except for a month or two ago, and as I hear tell, Twisty ran outside naked and frolicked in the rain with Maypearl, Stanley, Bertie, and a host of other very happy varmints. But I don't know for sure, since I wasn't there. (Also? Whenever I see Joy Behar's name, I have a Buffy flashback, to a minor but unfairly maligned episode called "Bad Eggs", in which Buffy had to slay a giant Bezoar. Ick.)

I was gonna somehow link the subject of this post to another angular insect, the admirable praying mantis, and her radfem mate cannibalization efforts, but dammit, I seem to always have CNN on in my peripheral view when reading this blog and tonight have lost my focus as women seem to have taken over the Larry King program (no Larry in sight, but there is a Joy Behar and some of the Joan Rivers clanswomen). I have no clue as to what they are discussing but the sight has prevented my patriarchy-blaming thoughts from congealing. Twisty, keep up the nature-appreciating and what about rainwater collection?

Y'all are sweet. I've been muddling around with some anti-alienation, nature, and Marx stuff for a bit, the timing was good!

Hey, Menstruator, this isn't the news channel. A spinster aunt could blog 24/7 about man's inhumanity to woman and never catch up. I figure if each blamer has her own blog, and posts something blamey every day, we might manage to publish a tenth of a percentage of the things that need intense scrutiny and blame.

Having grown up in the country, I remember the pump being struck by lightning...took the microwave too. But it was covered by insurance. Since we had a well, not cistern, we couldn't get soaped up, nor flush, nor drink. It was immediately no water. I do recommend getting a generator for back-up electricity. In your kind of heat, you may want one that could allow for a small window A/C so you'd have one bedroom cool. I'm heat-allergic...I become a puddle of sweet sweat. Others love it. Or do you have geothermal? That's my nice and cool in the summer! Got any solar panels on the bunkhouse roof? Country life is different...I detest city folk who move to the country and then complain about the deer eating their plants. Willfully ignorant...why not grow something that the deer don't like to eat?! Or the ones who want peace and quiet now feel they can the loudest parties ever! Good luck!

It is sad, you are right, The Menstruator. But first of all: Jill the Psmith is dealing with regional problems which have restricted her usual madcap careening through the multiple dimensions of the internetses. (Not that she needs me to explain.) Second of all: these 12 year sentences just came down. Give the Obama team a minute or five. Third of all: there's no way in hell we're going to get a play-by-play, in real-time, of what they may be doing. I hope they are doing enough, and that it will be effective, and that we'll get these journalists home safe. But this is not a situation in which transparency is indicated. Later, we get to demand to know. But I want our people to do what works, and it might be behind the scenes. I'm crossing my fingers that Obama and Clinton, et al. will do the right thing. And fourth of all...OMG, I have to scoot, I'm gonna be late, and oh noes, I just ellipsed.

I really expected to come here and see something about the female journalists given 12 years in NK. sad. Perhaps some questions as to why our president does nothing. Because he knows nothing? I dunno. What I do know is that you know more than him. Or any other him for that matter.

Not my sister, Slythwolf. She used to incinerate ants using matches. Me, I'd put three or four little red ants in a cup with one large black ant to watch them fight. You couldn't put them in a previously-used cup though, because if it contained sugary-beverage residue the ants would eat instead of fight. It wasn't so much meanness as it was morbid curiosity. And thankfully, I learned better. Right early. As for grasshoppers, we left them strictly alone. They'd spit foul-smelling stuff at you if you messed with 'em.

Tigs, it's a good sign when commenters here think you are smart or get impressed. It means you're most likely a genius by normal standards! You get used to general brilliance being the norm. Twisty's great blog :D
