Oh, dear...JMS may have been possessed. Or kidnapped and probed. Or ate some funny Christmas cookies...

I alternate between being in awe of the way JMS's mind works, and thinking he is need of prefessional help.

In that case, WorkerCaste, you'll love this one:

But this one, despite being brief, was rather tenacious. What follows is the exchange in full.

Visualize, if you will, as I unwillingly did, Londo walking alongside Sheridan. Unsurprisingly, Londo is doing all the talking here.

ôIÆm afraid I have a slight problem with your concept of a æbulls-eye.Æ I have investigated this matter at length and it is simply a series of concentric circles with a dot in the center. It looks nothing at all like a bull, or an eye, or an eye of a bull. Not even a bull that had too much to drink the night before, unless you know something about the genetics of these creatures that I failed to discover in my research. Insofar as I can determine, a æbulls eyeÆ is nothing more than a big stiff piece of wood with a target on its front. Which brings me at last to YOU, Captain Sheridan....ö

Now...did anybody *not* hear Londo's voice? And *not* smile at the exchange between Peter and JMS?

I did indeed hear Londo's voice and had a great smile on my face at the Peter J./JMS exchange

In case there were ever any doubt that JMS is a Regular Guy:

And that, folks, was WorkerCastes 1,100th post. See how well he used it?

I don't usually copy people's posts verbatim but since it was a paraphrase and since it earned him a request from JMS to put his "face in the book", I'm making an exception:

Quote:
In my life, I have never seen anything like it; He would weep, he would pray, he would say goodbye to his loved ones, and then throw himself without fear or hesitation at the very face of albumin itself, never surrendering. No one who saw him fighting against the inevitable could help but be moved to tears by his courage. His stubborn nobility. When he ran out of paper towels, he used napkins, when he ran out napkins he used rags and sponges and bare hands. He was magnificent. I only hope that when it is my time, I may clean with half as much dignity as I saw in his eyes in the end. He did this for two years. He never ran out of courage but in the end, they ran out of eggs.
JMS sure puts up with a lot from us...

Jan

Wait. What exactly are you saying? Are you saying it wasn't a good use? And what's so special about 1,100 anyways?
