Just read this week's copy of the Onion (sorry, hard copy, no link). Starting on Page 7 is an essay by some guy discussing how he is going to impress a coffee shop waitress with his encyclopedic repertoire of material from the Holy Grail.

"Perchance, after all these months, she will finally ask what my name is, and I will be able to come back with, '[SUPPLY THE LINE YOURSELVES, ALL YOU MP GEEKS].' I would then laugh and tell my fair Aimee that, joking aside, I'm really called Larry. In that moment, I will have won her.

After all, what more could a fetching lass want than to be wooed with perfectly memorized dialogue from the funniest film ever made?"

Am I looking in a mirror, or what?!

hahahahahahaha! Dinsdale, if you still want to have a loopy liquid lunch in the Loop sometime I'll match you line for line. We can even expand into Life of Brian.

"All I said was that that halibut was good enough for Jehovah!"

Oh maggie - read the end of the article. Don't tell me you are one of the "all-too-common breed of philistine who actually prefers Life of Brian to the obviously superior Grail."

I assumed we were still on for next Friday. Figgered I'd post something next week. Or, if you would prefer a less ETOH-filled weekend, how bout the 27th?

I'm not THAT kind of Philistine, Dinsdale.

The 27th might work better. From what Val tells me about these gatherings I should be close to over my hangover by then. I'm down here every day, so am flexible!

"Perchance, after all these months, she will finally ask what my name is, and I will be able to come back with, '[SUPPLY THE LINE YOURSELVES, ALL YOU MP GEEKS].'

"My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father, prepare to die."? :D
