Twenty Questions

Okay, I’ve got one. (This is how you start a new game.)

Is it a sheep?*

No.

Is it a sheep byproduct?

No.
Well, okay. Miscellaneous, then.

Is it a place where we can buy knockoff purses, old books, and scary WWII items?

Not really. That's out in the fringe of Glasgow.

Is it edible?

No, and it's not in Fort William, either.

Does it live underwater?
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Well, not intentionally.

Is it currently living?
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Well, you'd have to ask it that.

Is it bigger than a breadbox?
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Yes.

Is it something you like a lot?
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Yes.

Is it strange and otherworldlike?
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Delightfully so.

I give up.

Tardis, baby. TARDIS!

*In C’s clan, this is how all games of twenty questions start. As in normal-people “twenty questions” games, everything falls into one of three categories: sheep, sheep byproducts, and miscellaneous.

Sample "twenty questions" answers from the trip: sheep, monkey puzzle tree, Loch Ness monster, Dolly the inflatable sheep, yarn, sheep poo, Chloe (our car's nav system), sheep, midges, Jaguar, oysters, sheep.

Also, go check this out: 800-SUICIDE has been defunded by the U.S. Guvmint, and they want to replace it with a govmint-run hotline that would (of course) allow them to access the call records. I used to work on a hotline in the 800-SUICIDE network, and I'm furious. Not only that, but they've been stiffed quite a bit of money from a past year's grant. Go sign their petitions and write the congresscritters, would you please?
