In Which We Try and Post Skulls..

Late night here, Fiends, but our Miss Kitty is safely here, and that makes us happy. She looks well for someone who spent the last six weeks on the road, (heck or even for someone who didn't!) And seems entirely as happy to be here as we are to have her. We have some big plans for a few days and her camera has a viewing screen.....

Here is my attempt to embed our Skull Map of the World into a blog....(OK, to be truthful, Philas attempt, I am the cut and paste artist, if you missed it first in the comments, it's a map that let's you put up a Skull where you are from,so we can see Skulls all over the world. Go ahead, Skull, you know you want to...)

Tomorrow ought to be an interesting day at work. Besides more media than ought to occur in any one day, we are doing the big honey harvest, which means we go out and steal all the honey they don't need to get thru the winter, and extract it.

It was meant to be fairly straight forward, with Boss, Birdchick, Kitty (holding fast to my hand, as she says) and me, but Boss keeps, uh, adding to the group. Boss is just back from China you see, and still a little, perhaps, not quite with us.

Every time I turned around it seemed another person was coming along to the party, up to and including a reporter from MPR. I guess he figured he's kill two birds with one stone, do the interview WHILE harvesting honey and get another pair of hands to help in the process. Which is all good the more the merrier, but I did attempt to point out why he could not have all these people help, and mentioned the number of bee suits we possessed, and the number of people....

He said "You can give up your Bee Suit" (not that this would cover the number needed)

"Why Me?" says I

"You never get stung, you can wear the Bee Hat" he says.

I told him the REASON I was the only one not have been stung was that I was the only one who did not GO to the hives without a bee suit....

Ought to be an interesting afternoon. Never dull, this job.

Kali is attempting to savage my hands as I type, which is kind of cute after experiencing what the Bengals were capable of as Kittens (THEY are currently engaged in trying to pull down all the blinds in my sunroom. Go figure.

I'll leave you with a picture of her shredding my notebook instead.....



Love, Skulls, Bees, and Bengals,
Lorraine

Extremely cute!!

Glad to hear Kitty has landed okay. Have a nice night and a honey-filled day tomorrow. Remember to think 'earth mother, earth mother'.. you are the friends of the bees... and you should bee okay.

Don't worry, bee happy
Don't worry, bee happy
Every thing's gonna bee alright.

I have this vision of the Bee Hat as a medicine hat, only without the traditional antlers and feathers, it has bee wings, and black and yellow stripes, and a stinger in the back...

I'll take a look at the code for embedding skulls, if you want -- can't have a skull-less post!

It's not you lot nipping off suitless. Tomorrows post: In which I get STUNG fo rthe first time....

I'll send you the code Val..

 
At 10:58 PM , Blogger Dragonsally said...

Nooooo. Naughty Boss. Fablo must be fully protected. Make the reporter go bee-suit-less. Reporters can't report properly from within Big Bee Suits anyway.

 
At 11:11 PM , Blogger pantagruel said...

I came,
I saw,
I skulled.

 
At 11:12 PM , Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

Val Skulled! Whee-hoo! We have Skulls!

Thank you Val, for Skulling so excellently for us!!!!!!

And Phiala!

Drinks all round!

(I'm for bed, carry on...)

 
At 11:54 PM , Anonymous Lysandwr said...

Reporter must be OF the moment....he/she must needs experience Beeing Happy (thank you Rubius!) with full exposure!

And Fablo keeps wearing bee suit. Having stopped breathing TWICE due to stings, I don't even like hearing about Fiends being at risk.

Glad you arrived safely, Kitty....back when I was occasionally lurking, I realized you were in my hometown (Santa Barbara) working a tour/show we went to--Duran Duran. Amazing seats on the first stone rise of the County Bowl.
Hope you had a good time there on "the other side of the curtain"..

and both of you:

BEE SAFE!!
:)

Must BEE all the fear of stings...
quiet here. Figures. What if we gave an Internet, but nobody came?

Phiala--once again (referring to yesterday) my sympathies to family and friends such as yourself. This is perhaps even the harder path, and we are none of us above hoping for a miracle.

 
At 12:08 AM , Blogger Dragonsally said...

Lysandwr, I'm with you, as someone for whom a bee sting can be the big delete button - be very safe.

Oh good! Pantagruel fixed the skulls while I snoozed. That's good, because the direction for Blogger on the help page don't work... I shall proceed to ignore all of Q's questions, 'kay? :)

I deleted duplicates this morning, and I think I got everyone who asked. Maybe. The application is a bit wonky - just ask Pantagruel - so who knows. In the process I learned how I can add photos to existing points, so if you forgot and want one you can send it to me.

One last update from me on my friend: He is now officially dead, having given every last bit that could be used to help someone else live, down to his bone marrow - the last good act of a good man.

 
At 4:06 AM , Blogger Phiala said...

Oh drat... I hate when I forget to check the "email followup comments" box and have to write a stupid second comment to convince Blogger that I want them!

Hi,

I made it back for a night but I have to go again.

Phiala, I'm so sorry about your friend. There are some awful decisions people are forced to make. It's always good to know that he would have made at least 5 people extremely grateful and happy.

On another note, I too think the journo should go suitless for the bees, after all they have the hide of a rhino and it shouldn't bother them if they get stung (the journo, that is).

I don't think I could beat "Don't worry Beee happy". I loved that song.

 
At 5:11 AM , Anonymous jacquib said...

However, on the other hand,

The journo got stung
he was not kindly disposed
to be flattering

Ha, finally got one in!!!

Well if anyone must give up a bee suit it should be the person who invited too many people. But what do I know.

Good luck today!

More coffee now!

 
At 7:15 AM , Blogger ariandalen said...

YAY! Thar be skulls on this blog!

Rubius, YES! That's it exactly! Thank you. I didn't expect anyone born after 1970 to remember them. :) I mean, I was all of 11 in 1973. I ate Space Food Bars, too. And "the trouble with Start is to stop."

Frightening isn't it?

 
At 7:16 AM , Blogger ariandalen said...

Oh! And I agree with Gayle about who should go without a bee suit. ;)

 
At 7:34 AM , Blogger pantagruel said...

So if you don't get to wear a bee suit, do you at least get to wield the smoker, so you can protect yourself with smoke?

Or start praying to Aphrodite or Deborah, both goddesses known as 'Queen Bee.' ;) Just picture yourself as one of the Melissae, and you'll be fine. Or sacrifice something… like hapless reporters…

Hurrah! How skully. It's beginning to look like a worldwide pirate invasion. Yarr!

Bee puns elude me.
I look to haiku for Truth:
Don't give up the suit.

A good act of a good man indeed, Phiala. Wishing you and everyone who knew him peace and healing. What a hard thing to have to go through so suddenly.

 
At 8:31 AM , Blogger Kitty Cat said...

i skulled from here---pre-bee!
Quiche is steering the giant boat that is this household and i am quietly sitting beside, preparing to make some coffee and enjoying the day before the storms that will be.
Miss FabLo picked me up in the midst of a dire storm, which seemed to know I was coming and disappeared when i put one toe on the tarmac. The universe knows I come here for some weather, don't be shy, storm clouds, come visit me.
and Zoe kept me up in the wee hours, because she couldn' t make up her mind beween head-butting me or chewing on my hair, so she did both, repeatedly, for the entire night. Bees, don't get me, ok?

 
At 9:15 AM , Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

Kitty, at least, will be safe. It will all work.

I woke this morning to find Mim had had the runds on her Cat Wheel. No, I did not mix up my pronouns as I do in French. Not A run, THE runs.

SIgh.

Good morning! Surprise!!

I too have skulled. Now all I need to know is how to make the map bigger and lighter so I can read it!

Oh. I'm back from vacation - it seems I missed a lot being internetless for 10 days. I have a lot of reading to do. Or, I may just jump in where I am now.

Kudos on the new kitten - looks sweet, and I'm proud of you for taking what you love. Good for you, Quiche.

I'm with the rest, you still get a suit. Boss should selfishly let you keep it because I think his life may collapse without you there holding it up! But, stalkerishly, I think he gets to keep his suit as well...i'm all for the journalist not having one. Of course, I was on the journalist side of Boss a few years ago and I would have nothing to do with suit-less bee confrontations even for him!!

Love the inclusion of the skullery on the blog!

I was awoken at 2am by a seal-barking 4yr old. Summer must be over, the croup cough has arrived. Some kids get ear infections, mine takes after his daddy as a child and gets croup at least once a year. It's 80 degrees out though so the only sign of fall is the cough.

So he's off to the acupuncturist with me today. Two-two-two-needlings in one!

 
At 9:35 AM , Blogger Chantrelle said...

Phiala - so sorry. i know there's no right thing to say so I'll just avoid saying the wrong things. I'm sure he'll be sorely missed.

 
At 9:41 AM , Blogger ariandalen said...

Ms. Fabulous...I agree with Phiala; ewww.

As to Phiala's last update on her departed friend, if you would like to have your organs donated when you die go to The Living Bank and register now, assuming you haven't registered. They also have links to your state's registry. I've been a registered organ donor for close to 20 years with The Living Bank, though I just now joined the state registry.

 
At 9:46 AM , Blogger Rubius said...

Phiala, thank you for the update. I am so sorry for you and his family. Organ donors are a fine thing. I have a friend who needs a kidney in the near future and so such donations mean a lot to me.

Lorraine, bee suit or not I am still terribly jealous of you honey-harvesters. I would LOVE to help harvest honey sometime. I think that is a dream of mine.

I don't think I am in favour of any of the options so far.. there MUST bee a way to work on the honey without endangering anyone. Bee suits are imperative.

 
At 10:17 AM , Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

Welcome back Siri, we've missed you!

Jaquib, did I say you made me laugh?

ACK! More sick, no fun. Oh Someone had asked about Paul, he is down with the evil, just recovering himself, I am sure he will be back soon.

I should point out that Boss was in fact, kidding, and what he was really asking was fo rme to work out the problem.

Which I will do. No one is going to get stung. Much anyway.

And actually, if you are not allergic, it's not a big deal, I've seen lots of vid with beekeepers working with out suits.

Ok, back at it.

At 10:28 AM , Blogger Rubius said...

oh yes, I don't doubt that bee keepers don't always need the suits... but when you are stealing their honey??? That would be the time when I would MOST want a suit, I think. What if they get indignant? What if they have an uprising?

Must admit... I didn't think thy boss would actually suggest that seriously.

 
At 10:35 AM , Blogger Dan Guy said...

"Madness? No! THIS! IS! SPOOKYHAUS!"

Don't let reporters steal your bee suit, Quiche, it's against the laws of nature. Birds gotta fly, bees gotta sting, bengals gotta LAUNCH WITH MIGHTLY CLAWING DEATH FROM ABOVE YEEEEAAAARRRRGGGG! -er- and reporters gotta get stung. The natural order.

 
At 10:43 AM , Blogger Jess said...

SPARTAAAAAAAAAAAAA etc. Dan, you crack me up. :)

Oh, Fod. Cat Runs are not a nice thing to wake up to. :[ Hope Mim is better now!

Welcome back, Siri! Hi, Trent! Woo, look at that map now. Skulltastic.

 
At 10:46 AM , Blogger Maureen said...

I skulled (that does make a cool verb!)

*waves at Kitty* Glad to hear you made it out OK and are going to bee having fun.

Fablo - methinks Boss should forego the bee suit since he's been stung and knows he's not allergic. If it turns out you are, he'd be in an awful spot if you were ill. Next time there's a honey party you guys need to make it BYOB (Bring Yer Own Beesuit).

Phiala - condolences on your friend. What a thoughtful person to have made the lives of others better.

 
At 10:48 AM , Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

Hi Trent, and welcome! (If I haven't seen you before, I am a little crazed today..)

I have worked out the problem. All will be Bee Suited. Couldn't have been easier, actually.

(now WHAT to do with the bodies, shakes head and mutters....)

SPOOKYHAUS!!!!!!!

Yup that's us, and Skulls are everywhere!

Kitty went to get doughnuts after the fifth person said where are the doughnuts....I must admit to being happy about this....

And I made stew, (from BEEF people, really) for later if folks get hungry.

 
At 11:02 AM , Blogger Jess said...

Please to share recipe for Stew of Beefs! Hope they're good doughnuts, too, and not Krispy Kreme. Krispy Kreme doughnuts taste like the box they came in. Can't stand the things.

*invites doughnut-based controversy*

 
At 11:09 AM , Blogger Rubius said...

All praise the bringer of the donuts!!!

I'd pretty much given up on donuts but the Safeway near my house started making these donuts out of croissants with a light chocolate drizzle on top... come to think of it I had also given up croissants... but damn!! those are good.

and I always find it weird to write 'donut' instead of 'doughnut'... it is kind of a dough-knot really. Ah the ways in which language morphs.

NOT Krispy Creme!

Proper grocery store one , kind of smooshed as they apparently fell on the floor and then Kitty kicked them.....

Well I had no doubt that you would work out the suit issue. Good on you!

I love my animals oh so much but I must say that the days when there is a lot of runs clean-up I don't enjoy it.

I got my paper done. It is one of those, "OK, it's long enough so it's done" kind of papers but that's the way of things right now. :)

I hope you are having a fun filled afternoon with very few runs involved.

I'm sorry you are sick Paul! M and I are at the cough at night stage but getting better all the time. Hope you are well soon.

Just yesterday I was thinking that we had not heard about the bees in some time! It sounds like a busy -- but kinda cool -- day you are having as I write this! Cool that the storm came through last night and cleaned up the world!

I'd be curious to know what the code was that finally worked on the skulls.

Hi Kitty! I don't really know you but I sorta feel like I do. Welcome to our fair part of the world during the best time of year to be here!

Gayle -- the "OK, it's long enough so it's done" sort of paper is in fact all papers I think.

Paul -- hope you feel well soon! Hope you are feeling well for the gigs this weekend!

Somehow I wondered if Boss just suggested you give up the Bee Suit just to see the look on your face. ;)
So sorry you had to wake up to Yucky Surprise from Mim..*shudder*

Of course Kitty went for donuts..she works with roadies, and they are some donut eating machines. Hi Kitty!:) Hope you have some weather to enjoy before you go back to where they don't have it.

Dan somehow I'm picturing you throwing the horns as you yell "SPOOKYHAUS!!" which makes your post Even More Funny. LOL

O Hello Kitty:
I didn't say hi before.
Happy Bee-Robbing!

So I'm baking a plum cake:

10 tbsp. plain flour, heaped
8 tbsp. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
6 tbsp. milk
4 tbsp. canola oil
2 eggs
8 prune plums, halved and pitted

Mix the first seven ingredients in a large bowl and pour into a greased 9-inch cake pan. Put the plum halves on top, poking them gently so they sink a bit. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes, till the tip of a knife poked in the center comes out clean.

Eat with relish. By which I mean with great vigor and obvious pleasure. Not the green stuff you put on hot dogs.

I'm in the middle of Amish Friendship Bread. It's a yeast sweet bread that you use a starter, play with it and feed it for ten days, then make more starters and bake two loaves. Wish I could give some of you three of the starters. ::sigh::

And I just made Banana Nut Bread last night. Don't through those black bananas away; smoosh and freeze them. Three bananas smooshed makes approximately 1 cup. :)

But then you end up like me: freezer full of smooshed bananas, and still no banana bread. :(

I did make pear upsidedowncake last week, at least. But I really do have a banana collection, I'm afraid.

And no, Krispy Kreme donuts are icky!

Wasn't me, that's all I can tell you! Being 974 googlemiles away may have something to do with that, as may being in the office all day. No bees in here that I've noticed.

Jess..

Somehow I think your plum cake will be even better;

That said, must point out the true Archetypal Krispy Kreme Doughnut cannot be matched as a gustatory delight.

I didn't know myself (there were no KK bakeries in Cali where I was, only Safeway w/boxes shipped in--callous abuse of both doughnut and purchaser!) until arriving at a proper Krispy Kreme bakery in North Carolina, approximately 0600 am if not earlier, and purchasing a box of the finest direct from the post-oven racks.
No more than ten minutes out is where the Krispy Kreme doughnut's reputation is founded.

ahhh, I'm drooling now.
Don't need donuts anyhow.

Phiala, I'm sorry about your friend, but glad he was able to help some others.

Ariandalen, I used to love Space Bars, then tried them a few years ago and really wondered at my childhood taste - or lack thereof.

Who got stung? Its not on the boss blog or the birdchick blog - or am I not seeing correctly?

 
At 5:29 PM , Blogger Jess said...

Hee hee! I have this picture in my head now of Kitty having to run an obstacle course, while Cabal barks encouragement from the finish line.

Lys, I never considered the Krispy Kreme Doughnut as a universal archetype. What would Carl Jung say? Om nom nom, most likely. :D The plum cake turned out yumsome, by the way. A little dry, maybe. Left it in the oven too long. But I'm not fussy about cake. Just doughnuts.

I wasn't stung, either!

I've been stung by plenty of yellowjackets, and once even by a carpenter bee, but never by a honey bee. My question is: if you're not allergic to the stings of other species of wasp and bee, is it possible you could still puff up and die from a honey bee sting? Is honey bee venom more potent than other types? Anyone know? Give me the BEE SCIENCE.

 
At 5:34 PM , Blogger Chantrelle said...

I don't know where this mystery "who got stung" information is coming from either. If there's some secret, news-giving blog somewhere?

I got stung by a bee on my boob when I was just a few weeks pregnant with my son! And we hadn't told anyone I was pregnant yet. Everyone was offering me all these things I could take to make me feel better and I had to make up all these excuses of why I couldn't take them. Luckily you can take Benadryl when pregnant so I took one of those and passed out for a couple hours!

the thing flew down my shirt so I didn't know what happened because I didn't see it. So I'd totally embarrassed a male friend of mine by pulling my shirt way down and asking him if he could see anything (there was a huge red welt). he said something like "I think this is something you should ask your husband should do" :P

Think not Jungian, but further back...to the Platonic Ideal archetype.

As in, an archetypal Krispy Kreme doughnut, obtained from an archetypal Krispy Kreme bakery at the optimum (okay, you though I was going to say "archetypal" again, didn't you..)time.

I really am drooling at the memory.

Kitty, I know that we have never met but I wanted to say welcome to you. I hope you have a GREAT time in our little neck of the woods. And I hope it was not you who was stung! Not that I wish it on someone else either...

You know Val, I think you are going to be WELL TOASTED when next all we fiends get together... on top of your usual duties on behalf of Lorraine.

:-p

OK, so was I the only one who read Quiche's comment (10.48pm) and wondered who the Beef People were, and what they had done to deserve being made into stew?
