Loss of essence.

I dreamed last night that I brilliantly responded to everyone's journal by adept use of quotes from Dr. Strangelove or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb. I deftly replied to everyone's post using nothing but these quotes and was regarded a genius. I smoked burgers last night as I grilled them over low heat and they were the most fantastic burgers I've had since I've been in STL. Unfortunately, their excellence led me to overindulge in them, and I ate three. At least the reason for the dreams is clear, but there's no accounting for content!

Fluoridation is the most monstrously conceived and dangerous communist plot we have ever had to face.

I woke up with what feels like a sinus infection - but since I haven't been sick since October last year, I've pretty much convinced myself I am impervious to illness. I'll let you know how that theory hold up. Took a Claritan-D this morning to no avail, and overcompensated the drying action of antihistamines by guzzling over 5 liters of water already this morning. That's a lot of trips to the men's room!

If I were as talented as stuf123 I would simply render this. As it is, I shall have to use my command of the English language to convey my ideas here. As an ex-Warsaw Pack Naval Order-of-Battle junkie, I was contemplating a parody of Pixar's movie Cars. Using the same font's, and including, somehow the Luxo, Jr. lamp (which represents the 'i' in the Pixar logo) 'Pixar' would read, 'U.S.S.R.' and emblazoned on the red bagde - 'Subs.' Lightning McQueen would be an Alfa submarine. Fast and sleek. The eyes somehow superimposed on the more narrow conning tower, the mouth where the sonar dome would be - and of course the Alfa sub painted red with the race-car appliques. Doc Hudson a powerful Delta IV SSBN. Sally Carrea a Kilo-class, and Mater the ungainly Oscar-class. "The King" would be a B7 Blue Typhoon, replete with Daytona-style wing adorning the aft of the boat. In my small mind, that would be just brilliant.
