    The Never Ending Thread.

    The goal is to start a thread that just never dies. You post something directly related to the prior post. It must have continuity. We will have to feed and nurture this, but I believe this crew is up to it.

    I'll start by offering a seed of Germination: Madagascar

    And remember what the monkey from the tote bag made its way into the House of Blues?

    The House of Blues can produce some ferocious fumes when crowded with a bunch of monkeys carrying Cyburbia tote bags stuffed with dung. :p

    A couple of years ago, I was Googling that very topic, out of sheer curiosity to broaden my geographic horizons.

    Apaprently, Madagascar is a very popular tourist destination among the French, who are inclined to flock to out-of-the-way developing nations for holiday. The big destination there is Nosy Be, which is supposedly one of the most beautiful beaches in Africa. (Madagascar technically isn't in Africa, but still ...)

    Interesting ethnic makeup and language, too. Many of the island's original settlers have Polynesian origins, and the Malagasy language is more closely related to Pacific languages than those heard in Africa. French, however, is now the national tongue.

    All that from memory, too.

    Speaking of French... I would really like some French fries. I'm pretty hungry right now.

    Hey, they said it had to relate to the previous post... it didn't say how.

    Speaking of Manhattan, I could go for one right now. I think I'll start preparing myself for the Denver debauchery.

    because I wan't going to be the one to touch the clam thing...

    Checked out merriam-webster online and this was the low down on debauchery:

    One entry found for debauchery.


    Main Entry: de·bauch·ery
    Pronunciation: di-'bo-ch&-rE, -chrE, -'bä-
    Function: noun
    Inflected Form(s): plural -er·ies
    Date: 1642

    I like the word more and more!
    "They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety." Ben Franklin

    Remember this motto to live by: "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO- HOO what a ride!'"

    Have no fear... debauchery will remain alive and well in Canada (Montreal especially).

    As long as there is a Canada there will be beer- and where there is beer.. well, then there's got to be hockey!

    (Speaking of hockey- did anyone see Hatcher pound that guy the other night? Since he hardly ever fights anymore I enjoyed it tremendously.)

    I saw Tool in concert a few months ago... it *was* pretty colossal.
