Could It Be St Pats Day???

ACK! Ok. It's here. It's today. I will be quite Mad for a bit.

I will call Paul and we will play a game I like to call "What did we forget" I will get thru morning e-mail, a project not lessened by last night's Colbert Report. I will make the calls that need to be made. I will feed five Leopards all of whom have decided they need to eat different foods. I will bathe, and remember that if the Benglas have slept on my jacket, it will be covered in fur.

I will not forget to print lyrics to the Unicorn Song.

(No promises about using them, just having them)

I will figure out where Merry Housekeeper hid my Coraline Dunks.

I will get to the gig with enough time to set up two stages.

And I will rock.

At some point today, info will Magically appear here, telling you how to go about seeing the show, which starts at 3:00pm US Central time.

See you then!

Love and Irish,

Cool... I popped back in here just in time it seems.

If I were just a little more savvy then I would have asked for today off.

Happy St. Pats to you all.

At 11:26 Blogger Na said...

Hey Rubius! Good to see you.

Sending thoughts of calm and fortitude to you, Q. Hope you get some enjoyment out of today.

At 11:32 Blogger Dan Guy said...

Have fun going mad!

At 11:36 Blogger Jess said...

Go, Quiche! Go! \o/

At 11:37 Blogger spacedlaw said...

Good thing it starts at 15:00, so I can catch the start after dinner.
Don't forget the cables and spare cords!

At 11:39 Anonymous Anonymous said...

I really hope to be home to see the start of the show! Looking foward to it. Have a wicked good time! And I would like to vote for a shared abnormanitly t shirt, for general everyday fiend id purposes. Please? Blast the bb for slow scrolling! Have fun!!!

At 11:39 Blogger Arwenn said...

Jess - do you remember the kidhood book "Go, Dog. Go"? Wouldn't it be awesome to have cute drawings and make a Go, Quiche! Go! version? Zooming around in a car, playing music in the pub...

At 11:39 Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

Hi Rubius! Welcome back, we've missed you! Now if Dread Val checks in and agrees to drink for me, we will be set!

PA already packed, me no fool.

At 11:41 Blogger Phiala said...

Yay rock! I am hoping to be able to even catch the beginning from work.

At 11:42 Blogger Na said...

Watched the Colbert clip finally - "ROFL" doesn't cover it for me;
HAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAA!!! ::wipes tears from corner of eyes:: I think that's the first time I've seen someone hold up to Colbert so solidly. Go Boss!

At 11:44 Blogger Marjorie said...

Quiche, I'm sure you will have volvunteers for the Designated Drinker, if required!

DOn't know how to make chocolate vodka-y drinks (I don't drink vodka) Sorry you're feeling stabby, Na ((hugs))

At 11:45 Blogger Marjorie said...

Watching Boss on Colbert = good anti-stabby medicine

At 11:46 Blogger Fluffy said...

Rubius - you need tomorrow off, not today!

Renaaata, please don't stab! They'll come take you awaaay! Remember, if you don't have chocolate liqueur, use 1/2 vodka and 1/2 chocolate milk with double (or more! MORE!) chocolate. Shake with ice; strain into glass. Enjoy. Repeat as necessary.

At 11:57 Blogger gaypet said...

Sorry you are feeling stabby Na! Chocolate and Vodka in any combo sounds like a good idea.

Hey there Rubius! :)

Q, I'm sure you will remember everything you need but you can always txt me if you need something. I am going to leave my house around 2:30. See you soon. Hoo-frakking-ray!!!!!

At 12:05 Blogger Marjorie said...

right. leaving work now. If there is not still interwebs at home There Will Be Trouble.

At 12:18 Blogger gaypet said...

Good luck Marjorie!!

At 12:28 Blogger ariandalen said...

Okay...so my reworking of a little song on the previous post was just the refrain, not a verse at all. ::sigh::
They say memory is the first thing to go. . .

At 12:59 Blogger Erin Underwood said...

HAPPY IRISH DAY!!!!!!!!!!!

Quiche! I hope you have a mad, mad, brilliantly mad time!

At 13:03 Blogger Marjorie said...

I still have contact with the world! fods be praised!

I will go and write a badtempered blog about it all.

At 13:04 Blogger Rubius said...

Hi, everyone. I've been busy but I have missed you all.

Gayle, I love your avatar. You look just beautiful.

LaMie is doing better. She has been force-fed mushy food with a syringe for the last couple weeks to make sure she gets her nutrients. Yesterday she ate 70% of her dinner by licking it off of my friend's hand!!! That is a real improvement... since as soon as 2 days ago she wouldn't eat food that was offered... and she drank water voluntarily yesterday AND she ate a few crunchies yesterday and this morning!!!! I am SO FREAKING HAPPY!!! Who knew that a properly working digestive system could make me SOOOOOOOoooooo happy?

I think she still has a couple weeks of force-feeding left (there were supposed to be 6-7 weeks of it) but she is definitely happier. She is back to licking my face and seeking me out for cuddles.... practically all the time when I am home.

My roomie has been doing the actual feeding... she has more experience at it... and it is much easier on the cat... and I am so grateful. I got her a nice present yesterday.

At 13:07 Blogger AletaMay said...

Ticky Boxy bit!

At 13:17 Blogger Na said...

Thanks, Fiends. If looks could kill... well, truly I don't want to kill. Of course not. If looks could... bestow lice, perhaps? Or maybe a small flesh wound? Anyway, would like to set eyes on our landlord. And various others.

Tonight is a night I usually attend a yoga class. My guy is encouraging me to do that instead of imbibe. So funny to hear this coming from HIM, I say. I also say - perhaps yoga, THEN choclatey vodka. More likely San Pellegrino. It seems like a splurge and I like it so. Perhaps that.

Better than banging my head on the wall. Or being taken awaaaay. Yes, the Boss on Colbert was good anti-stabby med. Some music will be, too. Going to put some on for a while, before The Show starts. ;)

At 13:18 Blogger gaypet said...

Rubius you are very generous. :) I am so glad to hear that LaMie is doing better!

At 13:18 Blogger Na said...

Oh Rubius! Big ol' Happy Dance for LaMie and yourself!

At 13:20 Blogger spacedlaw said...

That's great news about Lamie, Kristina! A properly working digestive system is something to be happy about indeed. This is what makes us live after all.

At 13:33 Anonymous Anonymous said...

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!

There are SIX new Tees in the shop now (and at that, I would have LOVED to do a couple more....but sleep interfered.)

Five are available RIGHT NOW!!!

Erin is being edited (SORRY ERIN!!) to Éireann. Only w/out the funny umlautish thing...

Erin, seriously I'll leave just one of the Erin Go AARRGGH! shirts up for YOU. As it only makes sense, and has a lovely double meaning. Would you prefer Purple Sparkle ink, Green Sparkle ink, or GLow in the Dark?

Which brings me to my other points:

First, I've tried to set it up so that you see one of each new shirt on the front page. BUT all you have to do is go to the 'categories' button to see every version of a specific phrase.
That said--if you want X phrase and think you'd like it in, say, a nightshirt ....and don't see it there...EMAIL ME!!

Yep, we SERIOUSLY aim to please those what support the Beautiful Bengals!!

Also, we didn't do "Save a Leprechaun, Adopt a Bengal" as it didn't quite work right in the framework of these shirts. But again, if you JUST have to have that shirt...and that is what it will take to get your bit for Great Lakes Bengal Rescue...then, once again
Cause darn it, we really do aim to please. :)

Now.....enjoy the show!

Oh, right...the store is

At 13:36 Anonymous Anonymous said...

And on a more personal note...

Rubius!! GREAT to see you, and I am so happy for LaMie. Having been through something rather like that with Angus (and having to be so careful with his food for several years now) it is really brought home to me how hard it is when our little furballs go through weeks and months of this. It is darn scary! You've been great, and your roommate too!

Renata--Save a Landlord, Drink Vodka!
Save a Landlord, Stab the Chocolate Instead!

Just some thoughts for you, to go along with the hugs I'm sending :)

At 13:47 Blogger Phiala said...

I have already ordered a shirt! The one about my puppy, of course. :)

I'm not entirely sure why that caught Q's fancy so thoroughly, but who am I to complain. May be the best thing yet to come out of being stood up!

At 13:52 Anonymous Anonymous said...


Cool, ever so necessary umlaut IS working in their text format. Yay!

So it is now

Éireann Go AAARGH!!

Thank you for your patience. :)

At 13:53 Blogger Marjorie said...

Rubius - so glad to hear about LaMie; do hope she continued to improve, but it's great that she is seeking you out (they tend to hide away when feeling really bad, don't they) And happy that you have such a good roommate, too.

Na, sorry your landlord is causing stabby-ness. May Karma get him/her ;-)

Lys, T's look great. I like the 'I got virtually lucky' one, and the Fiends do it... in particualr

At 13:54 Anonymous Anonymous said...

Sweet, Phiala!!

My Lack-Of-Sleep thanks you...

and more importantly

the Bengals thank you!!

and, darn it, another note--the v neck women's shirts evidently run nicely loose for their sizes, but the Heather Jerseys run small. On the positive, they do go up into the XXL sizes. Which *I* certainly appreciate.

At 13:58 Blogger Jess said...

Rubius, wonderful news! Very happy to hear that Lamie's on the mend.

Arwenn -Oh, my god. That's only my favorite kidhood book ever. Why I even happen to have my very own copy right here.


Now it is day.
The sun is up.
Now is the time
for Quiche to get up.

"Get up!"
It is day.
Time to get going.
Go, Quiche. Go!

There she goes.
Look at that Quiche go!

Why is she going fast
in that Prius?
What is she going to do?
Where is that Quiche going?

Look where she is going.
She is going to that
spooky house over there.

(Are you imagining the visuals, here? It's better with pictures.)

At 14:04 Blogger Arwenn said...

I wonder if we could get Dr. Wicked to do some of the sketches... a la the Magic-trapping drawing?

At 14:07 Anonymous Anonymous said...

Oooo OOooo!!

A book! A book!!!!

I vote yes, in this Fiendocracy :)

Q will never leave us alone w/her blog again.... :)

At 14:09 Blogger Jess said...

Hee hee!

Hey, are we streaming on the same web page as before? It doesn't look like anything's about to happen, there, but it's early yet.

I finished the taxes just in time! Now I can get some ROCK. In. An hour. I think. Central's an hour behind Eastern, right?

At 14:10 Blogger Erin Underwood said...

Yeah for LaMie being on the mend! I love that name.

Lysandwr, you're the best. Green sparkles would be perfect.

I'm just realizing that I lost track of the link. Can someone help the linkless?

:-) Thanks!!

At 14:12 Anonymous Anonymous said...

LAST note about the Tees. For now, anyway. You TickyBox guys are pretty tired of this all by now, aren't you?

Kiss Me, I'm Fiendish has the most versions (select that category at the top of the shop page to see them)

But ANY of the others can be done easily in any of those ten versions.

Once again...
Email me.

oops. sorry for multiple postings.

Actually....it looked kinda neat.

As if a ghostly horde had rushed to answer Erin, then just as quickly receded into oblivion.

(works for me...)

At 14:18 Blogger Marjorie said...

Heh, that's me, a ghastly, ghostly hoard all by myself!

At 14:22 Anonymous Anonymous said...

Erin--was that the link you were looking for? (if not the droid... :))

At 14:23 Blogger Erin Underwood said...

I'm very fond of ghastly, ghostly hordes! Thanks!!!

At 14:25 Blogger Erin Underwood said...

Mmmm....... actually, I was looking for the t-shirt link. :-D

But I'm keeping Marjorie's link for nefarious future purposes. Muahahaha!

How's this? :)

At 14:29 Blogger Marjorie said...

Ah, my mistake. But as long as Dr Wicked doesn't decide tostream elsewhere to confuse us, the other will come in handy too!

At 14:35 Anonymous Anonymous said...

Absolutely, Marjorie!! I was just getting ready to ask for it as well...

Thank you!!

At 14:39 Blogger TommyB said...

Looking forward to the show- if I can swing it. Wife is under the weather, and I already ditched her once for the Half-Time Rec show last time she was sick. She may start getting suspicious if I do it again!

At 14:47 Blogger Erin Underwood said...

Thanks! Mission accomplished!

At 14:48 Blogger Jess said...

Ooh! Something's happening.

At 14:53 Blogger Ticia said...

Hi Rubius! I'm so happy LaMie is doing better!

Na ((hugs)) and flak jackets. I know this is tough. Be kind to yourself.

The mixed blessing for me is I get to listen to Lorraine & Paul tonight! wOOt wOOt!! My husband is upset, but I couldn't take today off of work after 3 days in bed last week. ::sigh::

Great looking shirts Lys.

Chocolate and vodka sounds good... Might be a party at my house tonight!!

At 15:01 Blogger spacedlaw said...

Party just started.

At 15:03 Blogger AletaMay said...

Hope to see you TommyB. She could join in online if she is up to it. Sorry she is not feeling well. Give her my good wishes.

At 15:28 Blogger louisa said...

Lys!! You're a star!! Thanking you from the bottom of my linguistic heart, you even got in the fada(umlaut), a pint of Guinness for you! Or chocolately vodka if you prefer. Great shirts!

Good to have you back Rubius, great news about the kitty.

Any sign of Dread Val?

Heading over to the gig shortly, one or two bits to do first.

At 16:11 Blogger Fluffy said...

Last I heard of Dread Val, she noted yesterday on FB she made designers cry. And I say, everyone needs a hobby!

Rubius - glad to hear about your kitty. It is hard to deal with that kind of thing.

I'm going to buy shirts for my fribday at the end of the month.

Fribday. hmmm.

At 16:53 Blogger Lyndyn said...

Happy St. Patrick's Day you fiendlings!

(Pulling some comments from last night's thread to reply to...)

Jess - I lived in Banksville/Greentree and did my internship at the main branch of the Carnegie Library in Oakland. oh, I worked down town in the bank mines for a while, too...

re: spicy brains - mine would def. smell like cinnamon, cause I loves it I does!

re: abnormalities. LOL This really made me laugh Ariand! Mine are prettttty abnormal! ;)

At 17:15 Blogger Lyndyn said...

Rubius - are you talking about force feeding a cat? I had to do that a few years ago with one of mine.

At 17:17 Blogger ariandalen said...

Well, Lyndyn, my abnormality was removable, but after looking at all the variations it could have been a lot worse.

At 20:49 Blogger Lyndyn said...

Ariand - mine are "normal" I just have twice as many as most people.

We're special! LOL! :)

At 21:16 Blogger ariandalen said...

Mine was septate. Had two miscarriages before finding out. Now I have a 7 year old and a 5 year old. :)

At 21:19 Blogger Lyndyn said...

That is wonderful! :) Congratulations!

At 21:31 Blogger ariandalen said...

Are you watching the webcast?
I'm going back and forth.

At 22:19 Blogger Lyndyn said...

I tried to get it to work a bit ago...I'll try it again.

At 01:32 Blogger Rubius said...

Hey Lynden, yes, it's my cat LaMie. Her liver shut down and we had to reboot it by force-feeding her three times a day for 6-7 weeks. It has only been 2 and a bit weeks so she still has time to go but she has started eating on her own now and I am delighted. That is the first sign that this is all working. That and her jaundice looks much better.... and she is happier. She ate her whole lunch AND dinner from my friend's hand today. A great improvement. And she seems to be drinking more too.

Thanks for all the supportive comments folks. Nice to see you all too.

At 01:33 Blogger Rubius said...

Sorry, that should have been LyndYn.


Had fun tonight with all you guys. Thanks.

At 01:52 Blogger spacedlaw said...

Does anyone know (and is still awake) if Lorraine is still alive after this tremendous nice hours marathon?

At 10:01 Blogger Lyndyn said...

Rubius - the same thing happened to my cat Simon. Took about two months till he started to eat again. I was SOOOOO happy when he took that first tentative lick of tuna!

I had good luck using turkey baby food at the start of it - easy to syringe in to the beast!
