Yup. It was definitely him with her and Minty last night. Maybe he'll bring her to the annual brunch.

Be prepared for a venue change to the 2nd Cup on Elgin at Lisgar.

O, christ on a crutch! Is this the man that this poor, deluded woman thinks has poetry in his soul? I feel like howling. I know what I think about that line of inquiry... it casts into question her entire ability to judge literary merit. But hey -- they're both obviously great little self-promoters, in their own ways.

4th Dwarf th' Rational said...

Now, now, me swabbies, put down yer muskets an' cutlasses, yon blur on th' horizon, 'tis more likely cloud than enemy vessel. Aye, 'twould appear th' lower case poet has been dubbed "Elvis, me favoured poet".

But let me remind ye that the lower case poet has a history of pining fer young beauties, haulin' inta close quarters, an' then havin' the young beauty sheer off and slip the pursuit afore a boardin' action can commence.

coyote said...

Point taken, Dwarf. We have all seen the lcp crash & burn spectacularly on numerous occasions. I feel a need to query a minor point, though: is not Westboro the home of the Elvis Sighting Society, Elvis Lives Lane &c, ad nauseum?

4th Dwarf said...

Indeed, that be Westboro, the Westfest party 'twas held at yon Saw Gallery.

Agatha said...

So-a slightly more perverse (and poetic) version of M, in other words??

Agatha said...

My last comment relates to your description of the lowercase poet's courtship ritual.

4th Dwarf said...

Well, the lcp has been known to exhibit M-like behaviour, but to be more specific, I'd run afoul of the Ethics Committee, I believe.

I'd been hoping we'd hear from the Chair today, checking in from an Airport Internet Cafe. But I forgot he would have gone through Frankfurt!

Since place-droppers always complain about the Frankfurt Airport, I'm sure he had only half-an-hour to make a connection 45 minutes away and there were no internet cafes anyway.

Meanwhile, the topicality of my poll question has gone to hell and I'll have to come up with another one.

coyote said...

So, to loop back about four comments for a second: Oh. Never mind. Silly moi.

And to loop back forward into the present, now: Given the way things are developing, Dwarf, I'm sure you'll think of something. I look forward to seeing the fruits of your agile mind.

And gee whiz, Agatha, are you suggesting 5M is poised to make the same silly mistake all over again? Pshaw. Who'd a thunk it?

Agatha said...

This is exactly what I'm suggesting, Coyote. It may look like a new tail, but it's still tail-chasing. It's the human/canine condition, I'm afraid. Sigh.

The Chair said...

Even though I avoided Frankfurt (came via Munich this time!), I see I go away for a week and the whole Bytown universe starts going wonky. First Belinda, now 5M and the lcp. Someone stop the insanity.

Okay, I think we may need to convene the EC, as we may be getting closer to the 5M and her consorts than is desirable for this study. It has all the risks of going all Heizenberg on us.

coyote said...

That Heisenberg uncertainty thing seems to be a universal condition just now... and very stylish Euro-makeover, chair.

Agatha said...

It may be a much-needed Euro-makeover of that shaker-style early-American puritan thing you used to have, but I think what you have now looks like a dentist chair. I suggest you check out some Scandinavian chairs. They know what they're doing. Check out this cool Heisenberg graphic: Uncertainty .
