  1. My iMac doesn’t mutter. It enunciates quite clearly when it speaks. However, it hasn’t been updated since Yosemite, as I have a fear of having to buy all new everything after an update. Let sleeping dogs lie…

  2. My old iMac (2014) wasn’t muttering. But it was stuttering. Like a drunk Palin in ‘A Fish Called Wanda’ had got tasered then shot in the head.

    So I bought a new one and gave the knackered old one to my son.

    Good dad skills, clearly.

  3. Are you looking forward to being kissed by Donald J., cousins?

    Today’s ubuntu update included cheese. Am I closer to cake over ip than you?

  4. Kissed? With Covid? I’ll pass on that.

    If you’re close to achieving Cake over IP, does that mean you’ve already gotten Pudding over IP? Lucky…

  5. First, I’d like baked salmon and garlic bread over IP. And maybe a Caesar salad. Then the cheesecake, pudding, and pumpkin pie will seem appropriate, and less likely to induce feelings of guilt.

  6. Glorious News, far more important than Presidential Elections.


    Beat that Cousins and Gravesend.

  7. Congratulations to you, Nxxx! After recent wildfires, we could use more trees and woodlands in my neck of the woods. Has Croyden have any spare green stuff to share? Looking for Douglas-fir, western redcedar, western hemlock, grand fir, silver fir, Sitka spruce, and Alaska-cedar. Also, black cottonwood and red alder would be nice, along with an occasional shrub. We can pay with ashes and dirt. Thanks for listening…

  8. I am not familiar with privet. Most hedges around here are of laurel or boxwood.

    How is it that hedges are artificial but hedgehogs are natural?

  9. Donald J. stated that “After yhe 4th. November, you will no longer hear of covid.”

    Is this because it is ‘Fake News’ or because we’ve all snuffed?

  10. If I was a betting man, I’d wager heavily on the latter.

    As if things have not been weird enough on this side of the pond ’til now, they’re going to be much weirder over the next few months.

  11. Soooo . . . why is Nov 4th special? Am I missing something?

    Is it because Trump is going to get bon fired on the 5th?

    Mon ami.

  12. I must say I’m very excited by the neck-and-turkey-neck nature of the septuagenarian stutter-fest taking place over the pond currently.

    And by ‘very excited’ I clearly mean ‘appalled that these two are the best one of the most educated, wealthy and vibrant nations on the planet can muster’. But then . . . you know . . . Boris v Jezza, so . . .

  13. The anxiety levels are a bit overwhelming at present.

    I would consume mass quantities, but I don’t have mass quantities of anything worth consuming. Although, I still do have mass… But I’m not ready to resort to self-cannibalism quite yet.

  14. While I believe that the current US president will soon pass on to greater things, I feel that in the aftermath the cleanup will divert resources from efforts that are needed much more. Pudding over IP would be nice, but inertialess faster-than-light transportation are important, as well as some kind of rheostat for adjusting local gravity.

    And justice and kindness for everybody.

    I hope Santa’s reading this…

  15. Friends, we’re saved!

    A vaccine!

    It’s apparently amazing. 90%. Blah blah . . . hang on! Minus WHAT degrees!?

    Jesus H Kelvin.

    That’s colder than John’s shouldering of our loyalty in continuing to maintain social turgidity in his esteemed organ.

  16. This other vaccine, from Kurt Vonnegut, would be much worse:
    “Ice-nine is described as a polymorph of water which instead of melting at 0 °C, melts at 45.8 °C. When ice-nine comes into contact with liquid water below 45.8 °C, it acts as a seed crystal and causes the solidification of the entire body of water, which quickly crystallizes as more ice-nine. As people are mostly water, ice-nine kills nearly instantly when ingested or brought into contact with soft tissues exposed to the bloodstream, such as the eyes or tongue”.
