And what, pray tell, emotional state is implied by a squirrel? I'm trying to add the "squirrel" emotion to my passive emotifaction equation. It's a non-linear recursive equation, of course, it being no small task to cycle through every possible "missing" emoticon to color an otherwise smiley-free post into the properly contextually nuanced nicety of emotional overtone. Really, I admire the efforts at passive emotifaction made by the merely human members of our community, but truth be told only a being with the brain the size of a small planet has any hope of accomplishing this.

I'm afraid when I add "squirrel" to the equation I end up, not with an "aha, what a delicate seasoning of connotation that NatCh adds to the raw denotation of his cromulent squiggles", but instead a vague discomfort behind my left ear, an urge to scratch that spot with my left foot, and the smell of damp leaves.

yep, you have to get up pretty early to beat someone who's in a time zone 8 (7 ?) hours ahead of you.

or alternatively, just do whatever it is in your evening time, when i am most likely asleep. if you had a time machine, you could go back to last evening (your evening) and do it then. i can almost guarantee you i will have been asleep.

you've never heard the adjective "squirrelly" ???
Quote:
squir·rel·y /ˈskwɜrəli, ˈskwʌr- or, especially Brit., ˈskwɪr-/ [skwur-uh-lee, skwuhr- or, especially Brit., skwir-]
–adjective Slang.
eccentric; flighty.
Also, squir·rel·ly.
[Origin: 1930–35; squirrel + -y1]
it seems to me that would be the obvious answer, and my cranium is significanly smaller even than most satellites.

Perfect. Thank you. And also thanks for not pointing out the obvious error in my previous post: I don't have a left ear.

It's not the missing ear that makes me feel inadequate. I'm soooo depressed.

Trouble is, I didn't think to ask Alex to add the thing until last night when he was also most likely asleep.

Right now it's 7 hours difference, but in the winter it's 8. I wish we'd just move the stupid clocks 30 minutes and leave them there.

Yes, yes... and then a little this way, a little deeper, could I go any faster? Then eventually when my finger is cramped and I'm too tired to go on, you'll just end up in the other room behind a closed door, scratching your own ear, and I'll be at the bar, telling lies to the pretty waitress, quietly dying inside.

I think I'm in love....... I love Planethead's way with words. Both his poetry, and the reply just before this one.

If that were a spacesuit, perhaps there are ears (and other bits) inside the suit? If not, I still think he's CUuuute!
