Leslie's Omnibus


I'm in a bit of a pissy mood because I can't go to Helen this year, so I decided to play some Calvin Ball:

Your result for How good of a Calvinball player are you?...

Your Grade= A+ Good knowledge and excellent strategy!

63% Game_Knowledge and 89% Game_Skill!

Amazing. You are part of the 4.3% of the population that landed in this category.* You know the game and its history well, and you did amazingly well when it came to playing Calvinball strategically.

This suggests that you probably have a natural talent in Calvinball. You have learned that the trick to doing well in Calvinball is not brute strength, but quick wit. With your natural ability you could go far.

You are definitely already talented enough to beat Calvin. A match versus the quick-witted tiger would be close. I'm going to give you the edge, but his superior knowledge of the game might propel him to victory.

* This is a made up number.

That cheered me up a bit.

And then I got a text message from this Texas pal o'mine. Seem she and her dear hubby are in Chicago for a high school reunion, and I get to take them out on the town tomorrow evening.

If I can't have my Blown-Eyed Blodgers, I'll take a couple of the Blown Star variety!

(I just hope my pals in Helen remember to tip a gallon or two of the Chatham Artillery Battery Acid and Built-In Hangover in my honor.... A real hardship, I know.)

And since I heard him on Steve and Johnnie last night, here's a little Tommy Emmanuel for you...

... and one for Denny and CharlieDelta:


That's all for now. Have a great weekend, y'all!

Leslie, Calvin and Hobbes is my favorite cartoon ever. I was so pissed when Bill Waterson decided to quit drawing them for the Sunday paper. But it's ok I have all of the books ever published. Thanks for the memories. I will have to pull my books out of the cedar chest for my kids.
