Hope your Squid Day was Happy!

` I've been meaning to post this for the past three days, but haven't gotten the chance: 'Tis a photo of myself, enjoying the 'snow' we got for Cephalopodmas....

` I had a cold, you see....

` Hail, Cthulhu has missed his chance to kill us all, and the sun is beginning to return. I sincerely hope that you had as good of a Cephalopodmas as I did.
` Interestingly, marine biologists did manage to get some squids around that time. That is, Architeuthis was finally photographed and captured, though it died of injuries on the boat. Also, an even larger species has been dredged up from the deep, almost unscathed except for the fact that it was quite dead.
` I would not have known this if it were not for the ever-vigilant Riley Penaluna's christmas post! Thank you, Riley, for having squidual relations with me! And now, I must flee to a doctor's appointment - I have a troubling green ooze and I can't figure out where it's coming from, nor why I have it!

Snow huh?

Well it looks like a bong to me.

And you load it with a cardio vascilator.
And you DON'T hit it with your nose!

You know sequin, you are always walking that fine line.( in your case 'walking' may not be the right word)

Happy New Year
(as we say on earth)

` Cardio vascilator? Sorry man, that's not an earth-term. You must mean 'vascodialator'.... Except, however, I don't think those can be smoked in bongs.

` Everyone here in the Twilight Zone knows you snort bath salts (also called 'crazy crystals') with hundred-dollar bills.
` Because it's cool.

Galtron said...

Troubling green ooze? Please tell me it's your nose!!

Sorry, Doctor, vascodialator isn't a word. It's vasodilator. And actually, people smoke them in bongs all the time!

G-Man said...

Tomatoe, Tomato...You knew what I meant.
And THAT scares me!

S E E Quine said...

` What scares you, G-Man? You mean the crazy crystals? Yes, well, it's good for green nose ooze.
` So, yes Galtron, that's what it was... and in conspicuous absence of another type of discharge - and my mutant spawn infestation test was negative!
` Could it be the Return of the Diseased Sinus Cycle? Along with my acne flare-ups, my painful sinus flare-ups had stopped being regular and eventually faded when I began wearing the Square Anti-Mutant Patch (which I eventually peeled off in August).
` Now, right on time, I've just gotten both an acne flare-up and a sinus flare-up simultaneously after not having either since I started with the Anti-Mutant Patch. Something tells me that this really is hormone-related!
` Ah... how I've missed the pain of my hair brushing against ripe, juicy whiteheads!

` And Galtron, whaddaya know? I'm always telling people to be skeptical = check out supposed 'facts' if they want to be sure they are correct.
` I didn't even think of it this time, but... this is what happened; I said, "What the *f* is a cardio vascilator? There's no such thing as a 'vascilator', much less one for your heart!"
` Lou said, "I think he means 'vasio-dilator'," and I said, "I don't think that's a real word; maybe it was called a vascodilator, because I actually heard that term used before." (It turns out that there's no such thing as that, either, so that makes two more people who told me the wrong word!)
` He said, though, that marijuana did not dilate blood vessels (though other substances such as LSD and L-Arganine do), and that in fact there are no smokable forms of 'vasio-dilators' at all. Instead, he assured me, marijuana was a vasioconstrictor (sic), meaning that it narrows your blood vessels.
` "But wait," I said, "Then why does a pothead's eyes get all bloodshot?"
` And he said, seriously, "That's actually an allergic reaction."
` I really scratched my head over that one, but I was in such a rush that I didn't really think of actually looking it up.
` So, let's see... as you cited, Galtron,

` Wikipedia said:

Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) - the major active chemical in marijuana. Its mild vasodilating effects redden the eyes of cannabis smokers.

` Websites about drugs say basically the same thing. However, Wikipedia also tentatively lists Cannabis as a vasocontrictor, as well!
` What's going on here? Well, if you look in some of the medical literature, you come across statements like this one:
` "The vasoconstrictor effect of cannabis on the vascular system has been known for a long time. It has been shown that delta-8- and delta-9-tetrahydrocanabinols may induce peripheral vasoconstrictor activity."
` Is that so?
` Well, then, what's going on? I eventually found pages like this one, which summarize various points such as;
` "Cannabinoids can also reduce blood pressure via arteriollar dilatation in a variety of tissues, although the effect on blood flow varies at a local level, with some organs or brain regions experiencing vasoconstriction, others vasodilation."
` Fascinating. So, it looks like cannabis is both, depending on what part of your body it is having an effect on.
` I am attempting to do more research, however, certain vasodilators are currently making it impossible for me to see with both eyes open at the same time.
` Ugh. I think I'm gonna lay off the champagne tonight....

You speak G-Mania?

Excellent!

S E E Quine said...

` Indeed! 'G-Mania' is like a second language to me!

Gareth said...

I thought John Lennon was dead?! ;)
Happy New Year :)

S E E Quine said...

` You caught me Gareth - I am John Lennon! In disguise!
` Now to erase your memory....

G-Man said...

NO!

(Paul is dead. Missemmissemmissem.)

That is what you hear, if you listen to the last line of 'Blackbird'..Off of the White Album.

G-Man said...

Maybe you are dead!

S E E Quine said...

` I'm not the dead one, though I did bury Paul. Either that, or I Cranberried Sauce.

G-Man said...

Your NOT dead then?

Gareth said...

Was I supposed to be remembering something around here ;)
What bank bill were you using in the pic? Were you a cheap $1 hooker or a "I'll flash my cash around if I wanna" $20 hotel room attendant :D

S E E Quine said...

` That is a hundred, fo sho. Of course, Gareth, I cannot expect you to be familiar with American currency.
` Please, compare the hundreds as seen in this sexy post with the one in question.

Gareth said...

WOW!!! I think you directed me to that post on purpose ya little minx. I kind of forgot what I was there to do in the first instance ;)
I'm going to have to look through your blog in more depth now :D

S E E Quine said...

` Don't go too deep. It can hurt, sometimes. ;)

Gareth said...

LMFAOOOO. Chicken :P

S E E Quine said...

` Okay then, I also have an extremely territorial parasite with very sharp teeth which I use to keep babies from forming.
` You know, in case the stork-proofing in my lab should fail. ;)

` Damn, I went out of context.

Gareth said...

Yep at it's name is Lou.
LOL j/k Lou :)

S E E Quine said...

` Silly Gareth! Lou's never been an intrauterine razorleech! An Australo(u)pithecus, as you know, and that one time I accidentally turned him into a lizard, but never a razorleech.

` BTW, he's good at blow jobs. Too bad my maleness went away.
