JulieK asked me to a guest comic for Okay Pants, so I made something pretty sucky evil - here.
Is it time for another rant? Why yes I think it is!
When I was younger, about eight or nine years old -- why am I always talking about my childhood? -- I made up a huge fantasy archive, to pretend to be more special. I told everyone in school that I was really Canadian! Yes I know not much of a fantasy. Many people in fact are lucky enough to be born Canadian, and their ultimate fantasy is to host Jeopardy someday.
Actually that was not my main fantasy which was that I was a Space Prince! Concealed on earth with hidden weapons and secret powers. Every night before I fell asleep I would switch on my bed force field, safe in the knowledge that the only weapon that could break it was a great battle axe (my stuffed dog), which was under the force field with me. Then I would dream ala Calvin and Hobbs of my space adventures, my bed a space ship, my sister an evil space princess nemesis! ("Mort I am your Sister!"... "Nooooooooo!")
When I was thirteen, I began to be plagued by mortality, I started to believe I would live forever. Quite common I know, I still somewhat believe it. Actually I thought I would live for 15.79341 * 10 to the 15 years. I kept that number in the memory of my scientific calculator for about 3 years, if it was erased I was sure it would never live that long.
I still have little fantasies about, being special or living forever, I would feel sad if they finally stopped.

|<mypalmike> Speaking of comics, ...www.tragi-comix.com... is an old friend/coworker's web comic.|
|<guyPaulo> I'm back in the cubicle of solitude today. |
|<obtuse> Take someone else' cubicle wall and put it up in yours, so it'll be a fortress of solitude.|
|<guyPaulo> The main board is like a ghost town today. Wednesday's contest and Thursday's theme day really drain the monkies' energy I think.|
|<Mort> I was thinking of switching theme day to Monday.|
|<guyPaulo> I think that would be cool. It would give another day between "events" so to speak.|
|<Mort> Or it could just wear all you monkies out for the week.|
I think I will make next Monday a theme day.
|<obtuse> We need a Ye Olde MEP Websyte day!|
|<guyPaulo> How about "Dry, English Wit Day," "Sexual Innuendo Day," or "What did you do over the weekend Day."|

|<Mort> Insult mypalmike day it is then.|
|<Jellyloo> Isn't that the theme everyday? |
|<Mort> I guess so, poor Mike.|
|<3Suns> no, only monday-friday.|
|<Mort> I like how he is named "my pal mike", trying to get us to subconciously think that he has friends. |
|<3Suns> Well apparently he's his own friend.|
That's gotta count for something, right?
|<guyPaulo> Has anyone figured out who Plech is yet?!?|
|<3Suns> I don't think Plech is a regular's pseudonym. I think Plech is just Plech.|
|<Jellyloo> I think Plech is Mort or just some other rabid soccer/football fan. I am probably wrong.|
|<Mort> You might be wrong, or psychic, you should check for new messages. The old ones seem to be fuzzy on the truth.|
|<David Byrden> It's a little-known fact that nobody in the Middle Ages ever said 'ye'.|
|<Jellyloo> Old fuzzy things tend to be moldy. I should throew them out.|
|<Jellyloo> oh and DB, not even to say Ye-llow or ye-s? I heard all Thelma's 'jinkys' were dubbed later in the season.|
|<Zebra Girl> Ye was actually 'the' it's jus the way the 'th' was spelt that made it look like a 'y'|
|<Zebra Girl> And I think Plech is also Roger Mexico/Elmo. |
|<Carol> RM/Plech. "Gravity's Rainbow."|
|<Carol> Elmo maybe.|
|<obtuse> I actually figured Pletch was guyPaulo the other day, cuz Pletch (and a few other aliases) showed up only later in the day, after guy got out of work.|
|<guyPaulo> Nope. Not my style. |
|<Kumiho> Here's my final theory Plech=Elmo=Roger Mexico=Eggs Ackley. That and from now on I think I'll stick to 'Kumiho'. I can handle being a mutant fox.|
|<obtuse> And the Snoid from Sheboygan? It's not me, and I didn't see any when I was there.|
|<the Snoid from Sheboygan> Hotfeet & thumbtack on a chair day!|
