Good news and happy thoughts: the worldcon 2009 will be in His Holy City so that ever greater multitudes will become pilgrims to honor Him. And to make it easier for people with not much vacation time to combine the celebrations for His Holy Day with the worldcon it was moved forward to august 6-10.

Hail and Praise ! Praise and Hail !

They won the bid? Wow! That'll make some people I know very happy . . . and also frantic.

Pre-con it was 227 (Montreal) : 221 (Kansas City).
The final was 507:341.
Maybe all the Kinderschokolade I brought to the bid party helped. Or at least it didn´t poison too many too badly.

Now I'm curious. What was a bad dream and how did KROMM make it go away?

I had an excellent Calvados XO with dinner on Saturday. I forgot to note the producer.

We got hosed Timmy, we got hosed. Howdy everyone! I am sorry I have sorely neglected the holy mother thread. Life came at me fast, two promotions later I think I can pay proper attention to the holy thread. Ice, we had spammers...big ugly nasty ones who wanted us to give 'em money for phones...Kromm sent them into the Phantom zone though so it looks like we will be OK.

By the way did I say hi to everyone yet?

Praise Kromm! Praise Kromm! Praise Kromm! Praise Kromm! Praise Kromm! Praise Kromm! Praise Kromm! Praise Kromm! Praise Kromm! Praise Kromm! Praise Kromm! Praise Kromm! Praise Kromm! Praise Kromm! Praise Kromm! Praise Kromm! Praise Kromm! Praise Kromm! Praise Kromm! Praise Kromm! Praise Kromm! Praise Kromm! Praise Kromm! Praise Kromm! Praise Kromm! Praise Kromm! Praise Kromm! Praise Kromm!

So we can add Victor Over Spammers to His titles ? Will the miracles never end ? Is there no limit at all to His powers and His benevolence ? What a glorious and beautiful day.

Hail and Praise and Everlasting Glory !

If only spam had been invented in medieval times; perhaps then we'd have a decent Latin word for it.

I don't think Tolkien thought of having his elves have a name for tinned goods, either. An oversight, to be sure. ;)

To keep it true to the source, we'd need that title in the ancient Viking language. We can accept Icelandic as an adequate substitude though.

At the actual state of the Holy Mother Thread, I can hire a proper Viking battle choir to sing, Sing, SING!

KROMM, KROMM, KROMM, magnificent KROMM,

Superlative KROMM. Superlativest KROMM!

KROMM, KROMM, KROMM, wonderous KROMM,

Surgical KROMM, splendiferous KROMM.

KROMM, KROMM, KROMM, KROOOOOMM!
