But I'm doing a lot of really unpleasannt things instead (And a few really pleasant things I'm happy to be doing), so--

I need a little sit-down in the Tavern. It's awfully uncluttered in here! Where'd the junk leftover from the last one go?

Who wants to buy this time?

I'll run an AquaRunning class in the jello pit.

I'm only an hour away from the gathering but as the ultimate outsider I will doing the same as you Sue.

I have a portable 18 foot pool with filter pump etc. How do I turn it into a jello pit?

Don, first you figure the gallons of water that the pool holds. (Don't ask ME how....). Then since each gallon has 16 cups, you add 2 packs of Jell-O for every gallon.....I think you may need your credit card (Or Bert's) to buy the Jell-O.

Lime is generally the Preferred Flavour, but any will do. I'm partial to Strawberry Banana myself.

The volume of a cube or rectangular bin would be h x w x d (a bin 3 feet on a side would hold 3 x 3 x 3 cubic feet, or 27 cu. ft.

The volume of a cylinder is 3.14159265...heck, just us 3.14 x the radius squared x the height. So a cylinder 2 feet high and 1 foot in radius would 3.14 x 1 (1 squared is still 1) x 2, or 6.28 cubic feet.

You can work out anything else with these formulae.

Don, my personal pool-tools color scheme is lime green and aqua blue. They make lovely reflections in a blue pool..... Some purple couldn't hurt, too. I think a nice deep Jello Parfait in those colors could be marbelized by Aquarunning legs if we hop in before it's fully set. And then people can supply their own whipped or cream topping to have with the goo that will slide off them when they hop out.

But I don't think Mudcat HAS any cherries. :~) If you get my drift, winkwink.

"Lime and whatever that blue color is will make a nice aqua color."

I knew a guy who got the first big job in his life and went out and bought a new Volvo to match his elevated status and position. Jim really couldn't afford one at that point but he had to have it he thought so he bought one the dealer was more than willing to cut a deal on just to unload it. It was that same aqua color and its never looked good on a car but what the hell......The dealer couldn't sell it and for Jim the Volvo name (and a healthy discount) easily overcame all things.

Turned out to be a good thing after all because he met his future wife, Cathy, one evening in the parking lot of their office building. He found out later she was parking close to him and trying to figure out how to meet him. Jim was pretty impressed with himself thinking his good looks and good job had won him fair maiden. Alas, it wasn't so.

One night after they had been married a few months Jim suggested trading up to a more dignified looking Volvo or possibly a BMW but Cathy wouldn't hear of it. She said it was the car that brought them together and she wanted him to keep it. Jim asked her what the car had to do with it and she replied, "There's something about an aqua Volvo man."


Okay......so they're not all great............bite me.........

I'm wondering too. I've never heard it expressed as one word.

A by the by: in Juneau a number of local buildings and places are known by descriptive names.

For instance, a 70-acre parcel of mine tailings shored up by retaining walls where a number of oil tanks and industrial buildings are installed is known as "the rock dump".

The Department of Labor building that has an unfortunate siding is called "the Plywood Palace".

A silver-sided tall building with recurrent red lateral stripes is known as "the Spam Can".

The State Office Building is - you guessed it - "the S.O.B."

Ah... yes... naming buildings...

London has 'the pile of plates' or the Mayor of London's office on the south bank.

Then there's the Gherkin - the Swiss Re building, which also got the unfortunate epithet of the 'glass dildo' from its' not so vaguely phallic shape.

The 'Inside out' building is the Lloyds building and 'the harmonica' is Centre Point - a tower block at the end of Oxford Street/Tottenham Court Road that looks like a mouth organ put on end.

I'm not doing the insect squashing any more.. I have made other arrangements. So far, the cat approves.

On the University of Notre Dame campus are a variety of statues, known to all as: Playbook Sorin (Fr. Edw. Sorin, founder of the joint, holding a book), Touchdown Jesus (the end of the library, viewable from the football stadium, with a mural of JC with his arms over his head in the referee's symbol for a touchdown), "Fair Catch Moses" (outside the library, on one knee with an arm in the air).   There's also "Domehenge", a fountain where the field house used to be. And let's not forget the University motto: "God, Country, Notre Dame (but not necessarily in that order)."

Lessee...water is clear, so if someone wants a scotch and water I make it with some of this amber colored liquid and a clear liquid, like the stuff in this bottle marked "Tanqueray" which is obviously one of those bottled waters. Nobody drinks anything EXCEPT Irish coffee and scotch and water, so I'm ready.

2. Where can I GET a Tenderbar for Rap? Are they gooey?

3. Any Yptologists present? Would that be a maker, or a reader? (Like there's tongues, and then there's interpretation of tongues. It's a Gift.)

4. And who's gonna get Mmario outta the beanybag?

5. BTW can someone install a lift-chair thingie in a couple of the recliners? Us Catters iz getting owld.

6. ALso BTW, I was wondering: Do Catters ask, "Iz fud?" That one could go either way.

7. Also BTW, how are Taverns de-cluttered, and (therefore) what can that teach us about our houses?

8. A new thread idea: "MudTavern Approaches to 3-D Life."

9. We need a Tavern Quiz, too.

10. In fact, I'd challenge some of our habitual thread-copyCatters to do CopyCat Taverns, instead.

My dear Lady P., the blade of my rapier is at your service. Technically, it is a double clamshell, swept hilt rapier with a 37 inch blade, but if you prefer I can also offer you a simple smallsword of about 1750.

Gentlemen, especially gentlemen of the highway, are always polite to those of gentle birth.

Is there anyone I might skewer to brighten up your day?

Or, if you prefer a more bloody sort of thing, a cavalry sabering....

Rap, can I add my list to Lady P's? It's possibly a bit longer but may contain some of the same names.

Of course. Please arrange them in priority order and I'll get started as soon as I finish my own list. It's quite extensive, so you might wish to wait and see if I can shorten yours. Besides, I so dislike cutting the same person into collops twice or more.
