The Teasing Taste of Liberty, Sweet Liberty

Penned upon the 7th of June, 2005

Hello one and all! As promised, my self-imposed academic exile is at an end! Yes, I’m deeply excited too, dear readers.

“Sir Frederick!” you cry – for that is my name – “What have you been doing in this time of great joy?”. Well, let me assure you, there is much to do, and I am but a fraction of my way through it! As represented by this report by the Leopard Oil Inc. technical staff:

Current status: 12%

I would be publishing this right now from the deck of the Igualad, except the Admiral and I did enjoy rather a pleasant champagne last night, and now I seem to find myself in occupied Lares, wearing the boots of a butchered Spanish captain. I hear gunfire in the street, so if you’ll excuse me, dear readers, I shall go and join them! Expect an essay later in the day, readers!

    Gunfire in the streets? Reminds me of the Olde Days… I remember prowling through the tundra, hunting fascists with corn in my ear (as was the style at the time)… Course back then, we had to make our OWN corn…

    Ah yes, I distinctly recall the sweet ennui of painstakingly forging ears of corn from storks of maize (fresh from the maize-mines).
