It comes, with its own darkness in tow, swirling, chill, bleak.

Dear Mr. Script Kiddie, Sir:
Deletion Notice
The complacent, kept warm by a thin trickle of cheap fire, delight in its appearance, its cloying bright surface, its promise to mute or transform the their worn, everyday circuit. Only the wiser, those scarred by less verdant clime, discern its fell import.

After a brief overture, a moment of lace against streetlamp, it turns.

Gone are the light and lazy harbingers, replaced with a heavy, determined battery, set to fall hard, to stick fast. The thin voice of Borealis, alarmingly clear in the gathering dark, whispers of great ice sheets creaking, plotting a course.

As the very air betrays them, damping sound and pulling the horizon close, the old and the sick are beset with pulsing thought of swift grey shapes, low to the ground, circling, tireless, silent, and certain.

Haven't we been over this already, gcsb?

I'm a pervert, yes. What's more, everyone here already knows it. So when you burp up this tired knee-jerk "YOU IS PREVERT SEX WEIRDO OF DEVIANT MOM" type high-school "insult," you're just making yourself look like a pasty, terrified virgin.

I'm comfortable with my alternative lifestyle, thank you very much. You name it, I've had sex with it, or tried to, or at least lusted after it, be it dog, goat, cartoon tentacle, city bus, or any number of things that you probably lack the imagination to envision.

If you want to join in and try your hand at something more adequate, you're free to go find a few pain-delivery toys and come back to play with Slave. Or you could try to convert me to your preferred religion. Or you could ask for advice (which I suspect you need) in matters sexual. There is a wide range of opinion on the topic available here, from those who have chosen to examine the issues rather than mask their fear of them with lame jokes.

If, on the other hand, you want to just keep bleating out those dull, obvious innuendos, I'd advise you to take it to some other inter-worldly web-net address, where you're bound to find a more appreciative audience for that sort of thing.

Get more interesting soon,

Please be more careful with your hyperlinks in future. You may corrupt a young innocent mind with them.

As for the rest of your deviant ramblings, I think we both know which of us will be burning in hell.

Get saved soon,

Sig is under not panic.

Well, you've at least taken my suggestion to bring religion to the table, but I'm afraid you're going to have to be much more specific.

At the adequacy, you see, a brief appeal to God isn't going to convince anyone. We have several catholics here with views of sexuality far more sophisticated than your own, at least one follower of some sort of eastern orthodoxy with intriguing notions, indeed, and a handful of hippie christians who don't seem to care much for the sort of hellfire-threats that you toss about so defensively.

For all we know, you might even be a Jew or a Wiccan or some other goofy cult member. If you don't admit to a particular creed, then we'll all know that you're nothing more than a believer of convenience, the sort who might set foot in a "church" only on special occasions like "Christmas," "Easter," or "Marriage," the sort who parrots doctrine without any effort to live his faith, and consequently the sort who is just as "doomed to hellfire" as the most unrepentant "sodomite."

I realize that you may be accustomed to getting a lot of milage out of dropping the name of your Lord and Savior elsewhere, but you're going to have to do a lot better than that if you want to keep the attention of anyone at the adequacy, let alone dissuade some of us from laughing at God.

Once again,
Get more interesting. Soon.

GCSB [shocked] Uncle Robot: this is not proper.

NATHAN [outraged] How!

ROBOTSLAVE [recovering his self-possession] Pardon him, Nathan; he is a barbarian, and thinks that the customs of his tribe and island are the laws of nature.

Civilization comes to a screeching, grinding halt whenever a few snowflakes decorate the outside world 'round these parts; me, I love it. It's the otherworldly quality, the hushed stillness that I enjoy the most.

Spent the evening in the company of a child whose second birthday celebration is tomorrow; she already commands a 100+ word vocabulary that astounds and delights me. Earlier this afternoon, she witnessed a brief snowfall for the first time in the portion of her life that she's able to consciously remember; several hours later, she looked up from her alphabet puzzle to check on the world outside the living room window and exclaimed, "It's snow!" before I'd even realized that the dancing flakes had returned.

It's so new to her and yet, she remembered. The wonder in her eyes and enthusiasm in her voice renewed me; I'm grateful.

Though I've only been a full-time resident for the past five years or so, I've been present for the top three snow-accumulation events of the past two decades, and the top three earthquakes, to boot.

A city bus jackknifed on a shallow slope may be a lot for the natives to cope with now, but they're going to be in sorry shape when the 8.5 quake shatters the leading edge of the the Great Ice Sheet, and there's no-one but me and my intrepid huskies (and samoyeds) to call for help.

If, that is, all goes according to plan.

In the meantime, I wish you and yours good health and good fortune 'till springtime, if it is kind enough to visit us once again this year.

during the Ice Age, the glaciers in this region dipped their frigid fingers into the landscape as far south as Tacoma... Perhaps the moniker of "City of Destiny" wasn't as far from the mark as it would seem, if your plan unfolds as you would have it.

Not to gloat or anything, but it's spring here on the Correct Coast.

Jeez, you guys, what with the earthquakes, mudslides, random city-closing snowstorms and hacker invectives against Redmond, it's amazing that Seattle is still on the map. Literally.
