But firing Rocket Number 9 AWESOME humor. I use "42" as my answer to everything. Though I've modified it to 42 1/2 for some odd reason. But then again, I'm odd.

And man, I hate the news .... Bomb making in Child Care .... student attack at UCLA by another student (and they couldn't find a non-asian student to talk to??)

And a Moon attack at 4:30am (PT) ... not getting up for that ..

There was a very important 'yet' in my post about the Boss Monster. I have every intention of getting it, but have not quite wrestled away the desire for the full case. Thanks for the offer.

Cool story about the moon.

Why must we attack the moon. Why can't we just let it be? Is it not enough that it has been attacked by space stuff so much already? It is our neighbor. Why must we hate on it so?

Seven is my go to answer for everything. Pisses my wife off something fierce (like oh I dunno, a wolverine, a vole, or a syphilitic duck [how does syphilitic make it into spell check but not woot?]) The fact that 7 goes into 42, 6 times means one of three things:

1) Nothing
2) I'm possessed by the ghost of this Douglas Adams, only he's really really lazy
3) 7 and 42 did not have a second date

...they haven't been released to the public yet.

That's all.

It's not a delay, they just haven't been released yet. I was under the assumption that all three were being released at the same time, but that assumption was never confirmed by anyone, and it was wrong. Totally my misunderstanding.

Especially now that you will be able to actually finish the series.

I have read Slaughterhouse 5, Cat's Cradle, and Catch-22 (I think). They have been my (re)read list for quite a while, but something else always comes along and they get shoved to the wayside.
