Yes, I’m back, thank you. Secret Agent Fred and I had a lovely time in New Orleans, although I seem to remember more of it than Fred does. Poor dear was just the teensiest bit too enthusiastic in celebrating the New Orleans sport of drinking oneself blind.
We also got to hang out with that bloggers’ blogger, Jason, from Night is Half Gone and he and I had a very amusing afternoon eating beignets (there are some New Orleans cliches you simply have to embrace) and talking blogger talk, which essentially meant we were gossiping about you, our dear, dear readers. My dears, the things Jason said about you. Of course, I tried to defend you, but he was not to be denied. For a fairly reasonable fee, I will forward you the filth he poured out about you. Please allow sufficient time for me to make it up.
So we saw many cute boys, some of whom seem to be lost in Fred’s bourbon fueled mists, but none of whom were this cute.
Now that I’m back, I’ve turned my attention once again to the L.A. Times’ crossword puzzle which today included the clue:
“Rock from a Sock”
I was eventually able to chisel out the answer as being:
“See Stars” or possibly “Sees Tars”
Am I missing something? I mean, I want my puzzles to be challenging, but including simple gibberish seems to be cheating. Does this make sense to anybody?
