Thanks.

Must... get... Steampunk fix!

C'mon, it's Sunday afternoon, the proverbial Long Dark Teatime of the Soul. No-one's around to go to the pub, the Significant Other's still comatose in bed after a late shift so there's not a lot to do except read the latest BG updates while munching cheese on toast & unpacking this morning's car boot sale items.

Well, quite.

Except I didn't get out of bed 'til 11, so no car boot sales for me, but I will be in my workshop later, have some new ideas...

I look forward to seeing them come to fruition. (do you have an online portfolio, by the by?)

Well, my blog is available by clicking my banner, and my Photbucket account is public:

Lots of pictures of 'things' there.

You're not up for the FI race are you?

Generally I am not awake at 8am on a Sunday but my husband got up to watch the F1 Sinapore race, had a spectacular dropping of the remote control which was apparently sharp sounding enough to set off our glass breaks. Cue insanely shrill siren that deafens the burglars and wakes my ass, and probably my neighbor's ass, up. Cue dog wanting to go out. Cue internet surfing.

I'm sorry, it's rude to laugh at another's misfortune but that did make me smile!

Absolutely! Pre-race on Speed TV at 7:30am, the flag drop at 8, a most excellent way to begin a Sunday. markf

No idea, although the Mods are generally pretty good at letting us know once they've diagnosed it. It's quite unusual for the entire site to be down, when it's happened before it's just been the forums while the blog's still been accessible, & they generally put a link to here on the blog.

Not everyone knows about Spare Goggles- if you have other Steampunks on your Facebook, for example, perhaps you can add a link to here so likewise lost souls may join us?

In the meantime, how about a sing-song? This one was popular while trailing back to our various hotels at the Asylum:

"Indicate the route to my abode,
I'm fatigued and I plan to retire;
I indulged in a little liquid refreshment about an hour ago,
and it's negatively affecting my judgement-"

etc.

This makes me cry.. because BG hasn't bene online I just now gotten out of bed (it's 6:30PM now, lol!). I spet all day in bed watching movies, lurking on a bottle of Dr. Pepper, eating chips and cookies. Brass Goggles MUST come online soon, I am pretty sure the current situation has adverse effects on my health!

Akumabito! My word, our paths haven't crossed for a long time, not since they shut down some of the more "Frivolous" threads on BG. I missed your particular brand of humour and concise observations.

Miss Mary -

These are some alternate lyrics; I find they scan a bit better. Try them and see if you like them:

Indicate the way to my abode,
I'm fatigued and I wish to retire;
Well I quaffed a small libation sixty minutes ago
And it's gone straight to my Ce-re-bel-lum...

Seems to me it fits the scansion.

Cheers!


Chas.

Has someone pushed a lever and wound a sprung when they should have been pulling a chain and de-clutching, or have they just forgotten to pay the coal man?

Captain Lyerly- many thanks, that's the version i was trying to recall...

I say "trying to recall" as someone tried to teach me the words at 2a.m. in the morning staggering back from the Victoria... all in all, I think I did pretty well to remember that much!

Yaaay!

Mary - I think I can recall some of a second verse - though it was learnt under similar circumstances...

"So, no matter where I perambulate
Over aqua, terra firma, or effervescence
One may always hear me
Chanting this mel-o-dy:
Indicate the way to my abode."

I am sure I have bits of that wrong - the scansion is way off in the second line - though it does follow the wording of the original.

Cheers!
