Cool! Wow. When was the last time you cleaned the windows? … Thank you! I’ll be here till Thursday! Tip your wait staff! I bet it’s about that TSSPTICTYA thingy. You just added egg whites to your batch of wine in the basement? K John’s the new head coach at Tennessee. Or he’s following Leno on NBC. Or…no, too soon for Haiti. Ohh, been visited by a Piffany, have you? consider it remembered… will wait for “the other shoe to drop” Clariton is really doing wonders for you, isn’t it? Heh. “a Piffany.” I’m going to have to remember that. Thanks for the chuckle, Sihaya. Also, I’m with you, Rembrandt (@3). My official guess is that it’s something to do with TSSPTICTYA. Curiosity piqued. Is “It’s been a clarifying couple of days” similar to “my, that’s a brave fashion choice”? Either TSSPTICTYA or…dire news about SGU. I hope it’s the former, because I would have to mope significantly otherwise. Yeah … I hate prepping for a colonoscopy, too. Big fan. Just finished “Agent to the Stars” & am now reading Maus because of it. Hate to show my sign, but “TSSPTICTYA”? My work’s firewall has blocked this site until the beginning of this year, so am now a daily reader, but am unsure what the short hand above stands for. Thanks much! In a good way, I hope. TSSPTICTYA But in a good way, I hope… See? I told you doing that rain dance backwards would make a difference. (music begins playing) On a clear day, you can see forever…. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Vn2i9Vnyas I’ll try to remember. New shampoo? The next super secret project obviously involves large quantities of butter. Oooh, did you have Lasik too? I had it done last thursday and my life is a LOT clearer. nod is as good as a wink, say-no-more. Cooking with butter again? I’m thinking TSSPTICTYA too #14 tommyrocks Scalzi has been tormenting us for a while with references to his “The Super Sekret Project That I Can’t Tell You About.” Typo: “Know” with a k means someone possesses information about something, or “knows” it. You want “Now” with no k, meaning “at the present moment” You wanted us to be blunt and not pussyfoot around. (And now I shall go in the other room and smugly write “alright” over and over again on expensive stationary with a fountain pen, giggling that Scalzi can’t do a damn thing about it.) Rembrant et al: I think you mean TSSPTHCTUA. Piffany and her duct tape can make anything better. Looks like some got his free sample of Proactiv in the mail. SomeONE that is. Grrrr my guess – done (at least w/ 1st draft) of TSSPTICTYA as in: “that TSSPTICTYA is done isn’t it?” response, “it is.” See? I told you those Stridex pads would take care of that problem. A comment here about Noxzema would be both unfashionably late and also horribly dated, wouldn’t it? I’m more concerned with everyone’s fascination with acne. I have a number of physical issues, to be sure, but at age 40, acne isn’t one of them. You’re running antioxidant-rich fluids through your fermenting alcoholic beverages? All is now clear. Just so long as the clearness is not the kind produced by a certain religion. Clarity is almost always the best thing. But you’ve made me think of Winston Churchill: “I am always ready to learn, although I do not always enjoy being taught…” Bearpaw @ 27 Nope. I had to go back to find the ref and cut and pasted it so I am pretty sure it is correct. The tripartite HBO-Scalzi-Boll talks breakdown again? Zannah, thankyou. Captain Button figured out the reference – Piffany is a character from Aaron Williams’s comic, “Nodwick.” She is the kindest, nicest, best-est cleric in the universe. Sihaya, I somehow doubt that was what Captain Button was referring to at all. I took it as a reference to LRH’s followers, instead. Though thank you for pointing out Nodwick. Looks interesting. Opps – sorry, Sihaya. I think I was reading the wrong Captain Button comment. So what do we think this mysterious project actually *is*?? A pilot? A film adaptation of Old Man’s War for some major production company? Because either one of those would be *awesome.* Or maybe John’s going to, like, *promise* to shoot a movie of Old Man’s War, but we get to the theatre, and it’s like a three-hour documentary about his cats. The horror… the horror… @ Mary Arrr, #11: Or: “Such a difficult color, green.” He is working on giving his cats hands so they can post their own damn pictures to the Interwebs. What could possibly go wrong? ghee making you are? clear certainly not. explain please judge not my size for it matters not. Just like miticlorians an jar jar. Stephen @#42: Sorry, I should have referenced which one of the Cap’s posts I was answering (#28). Yes, I can see how that seemed utterly Dadaist. @ Edd T It would seem that size matters not, but Midichlorian count does. So what he said was true from a certain point of view. I have no explanation for Jar Jar. Was this related to today’s announcement? Actually no. Comments are closed.
