Quite a fungi, or, cold war redux

The only thing scullery maids squires have to fear is Zombie Warsaw Pact itself.

-- some guy

Punch-drunk arrived fully formed due to the latest continual hallucination of ever becoming un-unfinished & between the irresistible allure of surfing the electrons for strangely inspirational Russian paintings & coffee-less coffee talk, laundry load #2 nearly ended up a D&D fungal disaster. Witness how casually & expertly I deflect the blame from myself to the cruel, Stalinist exploiters of this proletarian flaw.

But the sweetly burning aroma of rosemary makes up for the near-horror of having temporarily misplaced my +1 skillet.

Graves, you swine!

You can always get breakfast at Famous Ray's. I hear that they have an eye-opener special!

Sure, I remember that song. The Knack, right?

Aren't all men fungi? That's what the nuns told me.

Dungeons & Dragons?
Really Randal?

And I find that almost all men are experts at shifting blame onto others. :)

humanoid fungi

I've got to remember that one.

As for laundry disasters, back in January a load of wet clothes was in the washer the day we left for the cruise. Seven days later it was a testament of evil evolution in action.

karl of the österreich, there's gold in them thar hills.

if, damn new wavers and their love of magical shrooms.

nunly, I'm a very fungi if I do say so myself.

laura, yeah, really. I even watch Star Trek. But I prefer my cosplay to be Tolkienesque.

BB, ouch. Three hours has nothing on that. How many shells did you need to put the creature down?

You're not fooling anyone, Randal. That's a Fukushima-grown cauliflower, and it's not supposed to be in this country. Put it in a cold skillet with some other veggies, toss in some stir-fry sauce and in minutes you'll have a "hot" dish you'll never forget, no stove required.

Are you sure that sweetly burning aroma is rosemary?

susan said...

You know when your laundry climbs out of the washer and folds you that you likely waited too long.

It seems not unlikely Myconids will soon be the norm.

Randal Graves said...

SWA, no, I will not partake of illicit substances, sir.

tom, of course not, you just smelled a prof.

susan, in Russia, laundry fold you!

One drawback as a fungal creature, there goes sporting a bowler.
