Nope. No topping that. I took the liberty of adding a link to Waking Ambrose in the Wikipedia entry for Ambrose Bierce. It belongs there.

Inde, I'm humbled and honored. 14:59...14:58...

Deek, who is on first.

Friends, I expect to be offline until Saturday night. Will someone make fun of the spammers for me while I'm gone?

Really nice.

Doug said...

Thank you, Robert. I look forward to seeing yours when I'm back home.

Morning Dew, you absolutely are.

Comfort Addict, some of us would say the other way around. Kind of depends on what's your best organ for thinking. I'm a kidney man myself.

Karma, he was three posts ahead of you. I got him, though.

Yes, Kates, old words, new definitions. That's the service we offer.

Thanks, Abraham.

I'm brilliantly foolhardy.

Sreekesh Menon said...

His disregard for the common code in those actions he follow, a fool in failure, a visionary in success.

Doug said...

Jamie Dawn, something I aspire to. Draw me a map.

Sreekesh, don't forget a monkey in mediocrity.
