I play Quordy.

An iPhone app, that's a bit reminiscent of the Boggle-like thing I was doing on paper yesterday.



IN THE COMMENTS: Ruth Anne is alarmed that I missed "panic." But the unflappable Ron says:
I sit in the dining room of the AltHaus Brewery having pounded a Nun's Oath or two, waiting for my Marcotte Brat:Worst!, with the Insta-spatzen, and the SauerKaus, nibbling on a Vortexed Onion und I engage in zur Quortyspeilen... It is a good Sunday, nicht wahr?

AND: Ron unflaps on, spurred by the unsettling vision of Meade's ascension to the banner:
Other beers at the AltHaus Brewery:

FishEye Light, which leaves you naturally Google-eyed! (Serendipitous misspelling!)

Neutrally Cruel Stout

Squizm! A NutBrown Ale.

RLC Porter -- you won't want too many, but you'll part on good terms.

BuckyBrau -- how they ferment the Badger fluids...I don't want to know.

Bloggingheads Weiss Beer -- except when John and Glenn are running the taps, of course!

and it goes without, of course, Mead(e).

ADDED: I've corrected the spelling of the game. It's Quordy (like "wordy" with a Q), not Quorty.

@ 1:22 "M-E-A... eh, that's not going anywhere..."

EXCUSE ME?

Are you wearing glasses?

Vain
Bidet

Hard to post and watch, even for a nerd. (Meanie!)

Hey, just to be crystal clear: My glasses question specifically had to do with the glimpse we catch of Althouse at the beginning, when she launches quorty. It wasn't snark, or even commentary.

Observation: washed up academics sure do have a lot of time on their hands.

Althouse blogs in French.

Yes, I'm bored. But it's kind of fun to imagine that you did all that. I've been reading my blog this way all morning. It's mostly accurate, save for some of the slang, of course.

LOL, Ron! AltHaus Brewery.

You know, I always wanted to ask Ann if she was related to Louis Althusser, since the name seems a cognate. I doubt it, but you never know.

EXCUSE ME?

Meade, what are you talking about! Your name is up in lights in the masthead.

PANIC! AMEN!

I love iPhone apps.

Ron so totally rules!

Ron, properly identified as flapless!

Meade said...

Oh we
could drink
a case of Unflappable Ron...
and we would
still be on our feet...

Methadras said...

You had Reap and Rent in the lower left hand corner.

Ron said...

As I have often said about Unflappable Ron, why settle for a six-pack when you can have the whole keg?

I admit a pub crawl with Victoria, Trooper, Meade, reader, our long-lost Locnivar Sippican...that would rule! Ruth Anne, Designated Driver/Spiritual Advisor, (after a wee dram or two, we'll need Spiritual Advice, believe me!) Althouse, man (hey, why not "woman?") the cameras, you'll get more posting material than you would with a pack o' pantless drunk Kennedys!

Kirk Parker said...

Ron,

How about something named for (or, more likely, against) our fine furry squirrel friends?

Ron said...

Kirk -- wouldn't that be squizm the nutbrown ale?

vbspurs said...

I would drink Althouse Sploodge if served.

Meade said...

Hey AA, there's a new one for your banner:
ALTHOUSE
"Now with more blogginess than a pack o' pantless drunk Kennedys!"

Ron said...

I would drink Althouse Sploodge if served.

Of course! Celery stick, dash of bitters, some horseradish, a raw egg, and some ouzo on top which you set on fire...bliss!

When served with a cocktail onion, this is know as a Trooper Borgnine!

Kirk Parker said...

Uhhh, it's there before I even ask? You are responsive, aren't you! (And no, I have no idea how I missed it.)
