The Althouse Amazon portal: because even MadisonMan sometimes needs a weather radio to know which way the wind blows. Especially when he must have to stand naked.

No one wants to know anything about naked weathermen.

I do know which way the wind is blowing. You just have to look out your window for that, and always know what direction you're viewing.

I am fully clothed.

Cold front seems to be moving in Madison according to my distant sources. Any chance of freezing rain tonight or tomorrow?

AllenS said...

Chick, they are predicing between 4 to 8 inches of snow where I live. Light rain at the present time with a north wind.

If you would buy a book on the subject of Iwagumi then you would know that oyaishi is the focal point.

a stone.

Always the biggest and most beautiful one of the bunch. And always have on hand more than you need so you can pick and choose from among them.

And fukuishi is a similar stone, a secondary stone made of the same material but smaller and less attractive. Fukuishi is the girl at the bar that makes the other girl look great.

And soeishi are support stones of the exact same material but smaller yet, because two stones are too stark. So it must be an odd number of soeishi or else the composition looks contrived, but if it appears purposefully odd, then that is contrived too. Mustn't be overly contrived in your contrived avoidance of contrivance.

And suteishi are sacrificial stones that can be partially or mostly covered, and just sort of there, like blim, blam, zoink, like what happens randomly, another contrived contrivance avoidance contrivance.

So do you got that? It's a stone garden, an aquarium that mimics the art of stone gardens, but it can be better than that with plants but you must follow strict rules of simplicity, just a few species, and fauna too, but only one or two species most, and the kind that school, not the kind that go flying all over the place like a bunch of spasmodics . Simplicity. For relaxation. Dentist offices and such. Meditative places. Would you like to see what they look like iwagumi ?

I found that whole thing incredibly stressful. I'm always the fukuishi and I'm tired of being reminded of it.


MadisonMan said...

It's 60+ degrees here in Madison -- warmest day since November 10th. No freezing rain in sight here. Just plain rain. Then a lot colder tomorrow night.

Your tax dollars at work!

Just so long as there is no run on pressure cookers and ball bearings, all is quiet on the Amazon front.

The oyaishi to whom I serve as fukuishi is getting married in a few weeks and I am traveling there for it.

Guys look at her and say, "o ya!" then they look at me and say "fuk u."

Her soeishi of a brother has been picking a stupid argument with me on facebook and I keep trying to take it down a notch and make nice. Then he stokes it up again.

I haven't lived there in yeeeears, so there will be a lot of soteishi at this here wedding.

Still, it will rock.

kentuckyliz said...

traditionalguy, now I feel like buying a dozen pressure cookers and a bunch of nails and ball bearings through our blogress' portal just to make her anxious and see if I get into the daily purchase report.

Wouldn't you all fresk out.

I am watching Revolution and I noticed that they cancelled it last week, for good reason. It would have been a supremely bad day to broadcast terrorist guerrilla warfare shows. So they're picking it up again tonight: and the Monroe Republic spies are taking a nuke to Atlanta, the capitol of the Georgia Republic. Oh, sneaking a nuke around would have been a story line that would have fueled public panic last week.

The story has become quite convoluted since the series started. I may have to have a review marathon.

I like postapocalyptic fic. They had postnuclear type when I was in high school and college. I liked the series Jericho a couple of years ago.

kentuckyliz said...

I am not going to buy any pressure cookers. I tried one and hated the food. It was like really fast soupy crock pot food.

I don't have any use for nails because I don't fix anything.

I have a little pillbox container with ball bearings just to keep around as a bottle washer.

I am spending my money on summer entertainments and travels, not useless hardware and kitchen gadgets.
