Really interesting people are saying "No" to Jim

Jim has been contacting some people to see if they wanted to write anything for his new journal: Noonoocloodeoon Cafe.

On the down side, it doesn't look like Noam Chomsky is going to stop by for caaaandy pie and to sit with us in the Costa Rican Oxcart.

On the up side, a really excellent novelist, Lisa Reardon, is going to write an article on plotting and the novel.

*much clapping of paws and bouncing up and down of Bears*

On the other up side, even if they said no, Jim is correspondoo with some really cool people, like Noam Chomsky and Joel Bakan. We remember back before Jenn, when the only people saying no to Jim were lots of women.

*much giggling of Bears*

But now some of the great minds of the Western world are saying no to him.

OK Bye

Noam Chomsky will be joining us in the Costa Rican Oxcart

Jim just sent an email to Noam Chomsky asking if he would contriboo to his journal.

*much bouncing up and down of Bears and in particular of Noel "Snowflake" Chompsky*

W're all going to get to meet Noam Chomsky!

Note from Jim: Guys, please don't get your hopes up. The chance he will contribute is very, very small. I just asked because I wanted to include an article on a subject I know is of interest to him. But please don't expect anything.

Yes, I can hardly wait to meet him. He can sit in the Costa Rican Oxcart with us. And we can make a caaaandy pie for him!

OK Bye

The Bears hit the rapids

Jenn and Jim are talking about going kayakoo when Jim visits Canadia.

We want a kayak, too. But maybe not in the water--too wet, too dangeroo. Very scary. Maybe just get kayak to sit in while watching TV and eating caaaandy in living room. We can put it next to the Costa Rican oxcart, and get rid of some of Jim's stuff so it will fit.

OK Bye

Congratoolatoo Jenn!

Jenn just called Jim, and she finished her thesis!

*much clapping of paws and bouncing up and down of Bears*

Now her thesis goes to the Dean's Office, and to her committo memboos. And then in about 6 weeks she has to defend her thesis. We think she should get Spike the Spawnkitty to help her defend her thesis--he's real good at defending things, like he defends the toilet bowl when his pet tries to get near it. If any of the stoopid committoo memboos try to attack Jenn's thesis, Spike the Spawnkitty can bite them for her.

*much nodding of Bears*

Congratoolatoos and many Bear hugs, Jenn!

OK Bye

Well, that's more like it

Jim was watching Jackass: The Movie.

*much consternation of Bears*

We thought we were going to have to look for a new place to live. We're not used to such boorish behavior. We do have our standards.

But he's come to his senses. He's watching a Woody Allen movie now.

And early Woody Allen, when Woody was still funny.

OK Bye

A Concerned Bear

Spike: Is Jenn still in the bathroom? Is anything wrong? She's been in their forever.

Blinky: Jenn isn't in the bathroom. She went back to Canadia over a week ago.

*much pausing of Spike*

Spike: Well that sucks.

Jim's All Excited Aboo Something, But We're Not Sure We Get the Concept

OK, Jim is all excited, becoo Jenn introduced him to something called the Lye-berry. We asked if it was all blue like a Blue-berry caaaandy, or red like a pretty Rasp-berry caaaandy, but Jim said no, it wasn't any color at all. It was full of books. Apparently, Jim went there and they gave him books, and then instead of showing them his 'Merican 'Spress Card, he showed them his...

What was the name of that thing again?

*voice in background*

Thanks, Noel "Snowflake" Chompsky.

He showed them his Lye-berry card.

We're glad Jim is happy, but we don't really get it. If Jim used his 'Merican 'Spress Card, he could order on-line, the books would come without ever having to leave his house, and he could keep them forever. But with this Lye-berry card, Jim has to go out to get the books, and then--and this it that part that really confooses us--he has to go back out to give the books back.

*much shrugging of shoulders of Bears*

Does anyone understand why you would use a Lye-berry card instead of a 'Merican 'Spress Card? Please 'splain.

OK Bye

We were tagged by Laura, who was tagged by Zooey, who was tagged by Spawnkitty.

*much consternation of Bears that this is some hunter's ploy*

Stompy: No, not that kind of tag. This is a game. I read aboo it on Laura's blog blog. It's the Caesar’s Bath Meme game. You list five things that people in your circle of friends or peer group are wild about, but you can’t really understand the fuss over. To use the words of Caesar (from History of the World Part I), "Nice. Nice. Not thrilling . . . but nice."

*much clapping of paws and bouncing up and down of Bears*

We guess our peer group are Jenn and Jim. They're the only other people sitting on the couch with us most of the time.

1. Outside. Jenn and Jim seem to like to go outside for some reason. We can't understand why. Inside there are comfy sofas and a bed and our Costa Rican oxcart and a computoo and a TV and DVDs to watch. And if you want anything from outside you just go online with Jim's 'Merican 'Spress card and they bring it to you.

2. Food other than Caaaandy. Jenn and Jim like all kinds of grains and fruits and vegetables and fish and meats. Why would anyone choose to eat such things if one can have caaaandy?

3. Cindy. She never talks to us. She complains that we're in the way on the sofa, and that we should be moved. And she laughs at Spike, becoo she for some reason thinks it's funny that Spike has his own Bear, Ollie. We don't know why Jenn and Jim invite her over.

4. Conservatoo Politics. We don't understand why Jim is a Conservatoo. We think it has something to do with the fact he has his own 'Merican 'Spress Card. If having your own 'Merican 'Spress Card turns you into a Conservatoo, we'd just as soon stay Radicoos and keep using someone else's 'Merican 'Spress Card.

5. Inexplicaboo Noises Coming from the Bedroo. For some reason, Jenn and Jim get very excited about running off to the bedroo, and then we hear all these noises we don't understand. *pause* Oh, Daphne Rose says she understands this one. But that we should just leave it at that.

We are going to go tag the rafs!

OK Bye
