Status Check

I'm not feeling the whole blogging thing right now, I must admit.  There's a part of me that sees this three week break between F1 races as a little holiday, one that lets me take a mini-vacation from having to spend long hours staring at the computer screen as I try to write something witty.

I know there's a number of you that, for some unknown reason, are eagerly awaiting my write-up for Rio Rainbow Gate! ep03, and I can tell you that I've completed the preliminary work on it... rewatching the episode, screenshots and so forth.  I just need to clear an evening to actually write the darn thing... it'll probably be Friday or (more likely) Saturday. 

Until then, however, I'm going to catch up on some of the other shows running, maybe watch a movie on the DVR, that sort of thing.  I'm not going anywhere, I'm just not into slaving over a hot keyboard right now.  Maybe you can go back and read some of my archives for a day or two?  After nearly six years of The Pond, there might actually be something interesting in there somewhere!

picture unrelated, but magical girls and explosions are always worth posting.

43? How'd THAT Happen?

April 23rd is the 113th day of the year.  It is also International Pixel-Stained Technopeasant Day, Independence Day for the Conch Republic, the 351th anniversary of the Treaty of Oliva between Sweden and Poland,  and the birthday of Minoru Shirota, Max Planck, and Oleg Penkovsky.  Youtube had its first video uploaded on April 23rd, 2005.  The ill-fated Soyuz 1 mission launched on this date in 1967.

And a year later, in a hospital somewhere in Chicago, a Wonderduck was foisted upon an unprepared world.  Who knew what that would lead to?

 Birthday candles!

Internet Is Down

Just a quick post before my workday begins... the internet provider for The Pond and its surrounding environs reports that there is a general failure in the area.  As a result, there is zero internet at The Pond, the apartment complex Pond Central is part of, and indeed, a not-insignifigant part of Duckford that is serviced by said provider.

Blogging may be non-existent for a while... or it may be back up when I get home.  We'll see.

बतखों from India

As readers of The Pond may be aware, Ph.Duck was in India for a couple of weeks not too long ago.  After a fruitless search for any promotional materials for the upcoming Grand Prix of India (aside: nobody he spoke to had any idea what he was talking about), he brought me back these:

They're made out of papier-mâché, would you believe?  They had one previous owner, for they were also Momzerduck's.  The first time she visited Ph.Duck in India, she was there for a month and decided to lend a bit of her decorating touch to his abode.  These two ducks became a tradition... each time she visited the Subcontinent (two times?  Three?  I don't remember...), they were placed on a shelf in the domicile.  When she left, they stayed behind, in a storage box until she returned.

Now they've made the long trip to Pond Central.

A Visitor To The U

I was on break at the University of Chicken this afternoon, pecking away at my meal of seeds, corn, oats and wheat, with a side of pizza, when I decided to step outside for a while.  The weather wasn't particularly nice, but acceptable enough.  At least it wasn't snowing like they said it was going to do, right?  And me with my warm feathers in the bookstore, no less.  Anyway, as I wandered around I found that the U Chicken had a special visitor!

Mr Thomas A Turkey, esq., was a guest lecturer today, it seems.  Not every day one of our cousins drop by... I was hoping for a visit by some potatoes, cranberries, and a plate of stuffing, but no such luck I'm afraid.  I'm somewhat torn: on one wing, he's quite the ugly thing, but on the other, its plumage was fairly colorful.  Odd dichotomy there.

Well, I'm no philosopher, I'm just a chicken.  I'll let the ducks figure it out.
