Well, after posting to some WU high-traffic or -bandwidth blogs is working less than reliably via this country dial up system in these Fay-related high traffic times, I'm going to resort to sending smoke signals from this blog in hope that they get through..

Snowboy watches with mingled concern/thirst as Fay strains WSW (!) into the far northern Gulf..

3-day Cone of Doom pointing straight toward Texas, and the implied collection of 48 frosty Mooseheads.. But what is this - the 5-day Cone of Doom as if by magic reverses course and beelines off to the NE!?

Is the Pyrate Queen invoking some sort of sorcery to make good her wager?!

Yer strength of memory is admirable. Aye, trusty Cog and I were on the way to mount a noble rescue. Alas, we were sidetracked by a plethora of temptations on George Street in St. John's (not to be confused with boring George Street in Toronto!), and never really made it much further. In fact Cog went astray there and I lost him - has he been seen since?!

Regarding Fay, nay I'd not bring her with me. Not even to collect 48 Mooseheads, though it would be tempting..

Nay, I just came bearing tidings from a mighty medicine man from the local reserve, who warned of a headstrong and capricious storm named Fay who would be wreaking wet havoc along her route. Said route was to pass through Texas. The medicine man is reliable, and given his prediction my success with the wager is assured.

I hope that premonitions of the impending loss (of the Mooseheads) don't trouble yer night's rest..

*sigh*

If memory serves me well
(and there has been a season worth
of rum hence) ..you and cog were to
rescue me from this storm or that one
and my fearless weather rescuers
promptly ended up on George St.
in Toronto and ye say
now a storm is to come to Texas
are you bringing it?

*sigh*

Please heed my counsel, oh feisty but deluded Queen.. Once Fay reaches Texas, Snowboy will be riding the seas astern yer Pyrate Ship, and the Mooseheads had best be ready and frosty!

In reply, the smoke signal spells out Snowboy's message:

"Pyrate Queen, tis grievous to see ye suffering such delusions. Ye need to seek good counsel, and to take steps to procure the many frosty Mooseheads needed to honour your wager and to slake mighty Snowboy's thirst.."

Regarding Fay and Smoke Signals:

YE MAY FIND A NOTE TO YOU
UNDER THE SWORD ON THE BOW

TO MY NORTHERN NEFARIOUS NEMISIS

THE PYRATE QUEEN was off the deck
tonight - in rehearsal and complete
joy and abandonment while drinking
a moosehead.
Being in complete anticipation of
24 nay 48 refreshingly cold mooseheads
that will adorn the deck from bow to stern

I may even use the 24 nay 48 and
spell out the name:
SNOWBOY on the deck
in honor of his gratitude and
supplication of one pq; WINNER....

Yours in bottle caps,
PQ.
