Conflabbit! Where Did I Set That Nanowrimo Flask of Infinite Inspiration?

Hello Visitor, I hadn't seen you until you bumped into the acid reflux retort.

I will be right with you. Oh for flerovium sake! That Flask should have its own Keter rating and security detail. While pounding out my 50,000+ word novel for Nano, putting proverbial ankle-weights on all other projects, I got struggling in the dim light of the Tesla coil and lost my Notebook of Noxiously Necromantic Nursery Rhymes, Putridly Pestilent Pattycake Games, and Life-Pro Guide to Gluten Free Operactic Blunders (By Nellie Deff). No worries, I always have my backup, it's right over here next to the cellulose eating bacteria... Oh shit! Never mind. Make yourself at home. Feel free to mixup some word-potions in my absence or if you are tired, you can just lie on the slab for a while.  If you dare.

*Grumbles off to the writing desk.*

    I helped myself to what I thought was breadcrumbed coated chicken wings, was enjoying munching until I saw the label cynoble octopy leg. Luckily I had some coke near by to rinse the mouth out but surprise it was fermented goat droppings. Note to self “walkaboutman,bring a packed lunch and own sealed water container”. Excuse me while I use your rest room……and that was not your test room but a Megatron converter, sorry for the mess.

    I hate it when I misplace my flask, but I, too, have a backup and it never leaves my hip pocket.

    Thank you all for visiting the lab. To my trusty Lab Assistant and sidekick, Walkaboutman, it is perfectly safe to eat in the lab. It hasn’t hurt me yet. Bahahahaha! Oh and also, that was chicken. I mean originally. Once the roentgens hit the roof, all bets are off as to what you want to call it. Come to think of it, packing your own lunch may be advisable. Bettymom, your flask is quite interesting. I assume it is no less that 300 years old. It looks remarkably like the one that fell out of Igor’s coffin after his, hmnn, untimely departure. No, no, no accusations. His flask had to be incinerated after we found the Yersinia Pestis Bacterium in it.

    Three interesting facts: 1: Every year in the US people are diagnosed with The Plague. The nursery rhyme, “Ring Around the Rosy”, was in fact about The Plague. 3: In the 6th century the doctors thought the illness was brought about by snakes, serpents, and dragons.

      At the risk of catching plague – you respond to comments by hovering your mouse over the bottom of replies, a set greyed block will appear as if by witchery – one says reply, the other delete, otherwise the author of the comment will not know you have replied.
