The Abominable Snowman

FOR THOSE OF YOU WONDERING, I CAN SAFELY REVEAL THAT THE ABOMINABLE SNOWMAN OF BLOGGING DOES, IN FACT, STILL EXIST.
I have photographic evidence.
He visited my place last Thursday night, emerging from the shadows to show himself, as ugly and incredibly verbose as he is.
And he had a couple of drinks while he terrorized my sanity and my apartment. Go figure.
At first, he hid in the shadows.



Eventually, however, he showed himself and consumed smoked oysters, pickled peppers, pickles, crackers, pickled onions and a partridge in a pear tree. And he bored me beyond belief.
He tried to frighten me, to no avail.




Nothing he does surprises me or frightens me any more. I just put it down to his unique existence as some lost link between history and the future, between morals and moribundity, between culture and craziness.

Eventually, once he realized he could not confound me with his ridiculous rhetoric and his idiotic ideals and his brilliant bravado, he calmed down and we were able to converse in our eerily strange Winnipeg dialect.


I know he was effusive before, and he's elusive now.




His name is Homo Escapeons, just Donn with a ridiculous two "n's" to me. I believe he will be back to blog so he can spur on his species and make other ridiculous claims.





But keep in mind he is a wild and often incredibly stupid hominid, by most standards, despite his alluring ardour and outrageous outrageousness.




He doesn't clean up after himself and leaves stains all over my sink.


But he DOES exist. For now, that's all you need to know.

  1. Tell him I said "Hi" and if he doesn't come back, how can I (we?) wish him well on the Big Five O.

  2. I'm glad he's still around. I feel like I'm losing too many people right now... sigh.

  4. I'm sure he must have removed his clothes at some point in the evening's revelry.

    Why are there no pics of THAT?

  5. Dinahmow:

    I think he's left on a quest to circumnavigate the globe before he turns 50. He may show up there for all I know.

    Stace:

    See above. He does exist, although sitings are rare. He still leaves messes though and AS scat.

    Ziggi:

    Yeah, he shaved, just for me.

    MJ:

    No, he only removes his clothes after a certain amount of alcohol or other mind-altering chemical is consumed, or if we're talking about veiled women.

    Or if I wear a muscle shirt.

    Maybe it's the time of the season, or perhaps there's a natural blogging life cycle?

    Ah, yes...the real world. Exactly.

    Indeed it is. That's the, ahem, love seat. It goes with a matching black leather couch.

  10. ((POOF))
    Gawd I look like one of the corpses on an episode of a low budget version of CSI Albania.

    You could have atleast made up something interesting to say...
    you make my visit sound about as enchanting as getting Typhoid!

    Thanks anyway. If this was your way of luring me out of the shadows just to salvage what little is left of my dignity then you have succeeded.

    I certainly wish that I had e-mailed you one of my authorized 50th BDay shots taken on the BDI bench.

    Now, off I go to plan my charm offensive and MacArthurian return.
    ((POOF))

  11. HE:

    I was thinking more along the lines of the Munsters and Ebola, but CSI Albania and Typhoid work.

    Save your BDI bench, approved 50ish pictures for your own scrapbook. These are much better.

    We await your MacArthurian return, full of pomp and ceremony and all that crap.

  14. Carmenzta:

    You're welcome. You will have no doubt seen by now that His Hominess has returned to Blogville...

    Angel:

    Sure, no problem! But you'll have to serve the drinks and be ready to debate about life.

  15. Thanks for the evidence and it is good to read that you're back blogging too, I thought maybe you were too weak, you know with those young folks eating all your food supplies :-)

  16. Hildegarde:

    Thanks, and you'll note HE has emerged from his caveman dwelling to blog again.

    Me, I'm just layin' in the weeds...

    ReplyDelete
  17. Maybe he's smokin' the weeds.

    ReplyDelete
  18. HE/MJ:

    If I was smokin' the things I was laying in, I'd leave myself exposed to the world!

    I need to contemplate other matters of urgent importance...like cutting my hair, recaulking my bathtub, etcetera, etcetera...

    ReplyDelete
  19. What? Your are still at the bathtub?

  20. Gautami:

    Yep, but I won't go into details and I certainly won't be posting any pictures...

    ReplyDelete

  22. Angel:
