Hibernating—Mr. Magi Does It

PLFM erinkenobi2893 (you can visit her great blog here) asked about Mr. Magi and his hibernating. Here’s a bit of professorish information!

~~~

Every so often, Mr. Magi—who considers himself the peacekeeper and protector of the Punchy Lands—will return to his cave and hibernate.

tuesday story

I don’t think he sleeps on a regular basis, you see.

Now, dadblamery occurs frequently in the PL. (Maybe even more frequently than it occurs in the professor’s brain—which is a wonder and a third.)

So, when Mr. Magi hibernates, everything that he had fixed is sorta unfixed, because of different PL’ers. Notably, Daddy Salami. But there are many more.

I caught up with Mr. Magi just as he ‘emerged’ from his cave.

“What sort of unscrupulous things are happening?” he asked, one eyebrow raised and the other at rest comfortably.

“Well,” this professor answered, “I’m not sure. You see, I barely see what I see.”

“Which isn’t a good thing at all.”

Mr. Magi wasn’t happy.

The professor had misstepped.

“I meant that in a good sense, of course,” I said, hoping to get his mind off it in a hurry.

“A good sense of that sort of thing doesn’t exist, young man!”

“Well,” the professor tried, “have you ever tried not to see what you were seeing?”

“No,” Mr. Magi answered. “I’d just close my eyes before I’d try not to see what I was seeing.”

“But what if you’re eyes wouldn’t close?” I’m really not sure if that’s a real problem, but it sounds convincing, doesn’t it?

Mr. Magi raised the black rod he carried. “Young man, we’ll have to talk about that some time. I must get about my travels about the land.”

“Yes, yes,” the professor called after him. “We will have to have speaks about that sometime.”

I didn’t want to follow up, though.

A note on the picture above: That lovely shot proves it is possible to smile like the sun (or moon). The professor was in the right. And now you know what to picture when I tell you I’m smiling like the sun (or moon).

Professor out!

    I just want to hibernate at the beach.

    • 2 Professor VJ Duke May 12, 2014 at 12:56

      I’m sure it’s greatly peaceful!

      • 3 Susan P May 12, 2014 at 12:58

        Only if I am alone. :)

      • 4 Professor VJ Duke May 12, 2014 at 13:03

        No sharks, you mean?

      • 5 Susan P May 12, 2014 at 13:06

        No humans who will talk my ears off. Sharks I can deal with.

      • 6 Professor VJ Duke May 12, 2014 at 16:38

        But sharks might eat your ears off…

      • 7 Susan P May 12, 2014 at 17:15

        They can’t catch me on the beach. :D

      • 8 Professor VJ Duke May 12, 2014 at 23:00

        That’s true. They don’t have wheels or feet.

      • 9 Susan P May 13, 2014 at 00:52

        You really have to watch out for the rug rats, though. :D

      • 10 Professor VJ Duke May 13, 2014 at 12:42

        Do they have wheels?

      • 11 Susan P May 13, 2014 at 18:54

        Some do…

  2. 12 Bethy May 7, 2014 at 10:46

    You know…I do like hibernating myself. And unfortunately the same thing happens to my house when I do that happens to the PL when Mr. Magi hibernates. What a pickle!

    • 13 Professor VJ Duke May 7, 2014 at 14:19

      *laughs* It is a pickle! All the dadblamery afoot while you rest. I’m sure it can be unnerving.

      • 14 Bethy May 8, 2014 at 10:16

        It is quite unnerving. I blame most of my white hairs on that and it makes me huff-hum and roar most loudly in the middle of the night.

      • 15 Professor VJ Duke May 8, 2014 at 14:50

        *laughing lots* And a roar! What a wonder. But I’m probably the same way. Don’t like my sleep interrupted!

      • 16 Bethy May 9, 2014 at 10:33

        Yes! The only reason I’ll tolerate it is if there is some disaster such as the Princess having a tummy bug. Anything else she can go wake her father who apparently is a saint and wakes up ready to help even in circumstances where her pillow lost its pillowcase…

      • 17 Professor VJ Duke May 9, 2014 at 20:40

        *laughing* I suppose that’s possible for a pillow to lose a pillowcase!

      • 18 Bethy May 12, 2014 at 09:53

        apparently, it is! In the middle of the night it makes me cranky. *smile*

      • 19 Professor VJ Duke May 12, 2014 at 12:58

        For sure!

  3. 20 Catherine May 7, 2014 at 04:05

    Aha. So that’s what smiling like the sun is!

    • 21 Professor VJ Duke May 7, 2014 at 14:18

      Doesn’t it look grand?

      • 22 Catherine May 9, 2014 at 00:29

        Oh yes. I should try it sometime, and see if I look like that!

      • 23 Professor VJ Duke May 9, 2014 at 01:24

        Yes! Let me know too.

      • 24 Catherine May 9, 2014 at 23:27

        Haha I tried, but I don’t think it looked much like that! Oh, well.

      • 25 Professor VJ Duke May 12, 2014 at 12:48

        I’m not a good judge of mine, since I can’t see myself, though.

      • 26 Catherine May 13, 2014 at 23:45

        You could look in a mirror, you know :D or a lake or something.

      • 27 Professor VJ Duke May 14, 2014 at 13:17

        I might get scared, though… *shudders*

      • 28 Catherine May 15, 2014 at 05:07

        Hahaha! I take it the professor doesn’t have a lot of self confidence.

      • 29 Professor VJ Duke May 15, 2014 at 12:43

        Not for these matters! I don’t like mirrors.

      • 30 Catherine May 16, 2014 at 00:33

        I don’t either, really. So I sympathize!

      • 31 Professor VJ Duke May 16, 2014 at 15:20

        Aren’t they rude?

      • 32 Catherine May 17, 2014 at 20:03

        *laughing* Yes, yes they are!

      • 33 Professor VJ Duke May 17, 2014 at 21:44

        Don’t even know why we need them.

      • 34 Catherine May 19, 2014 at 00:22

        We really don’t! At least, I’d be fine without them.

      • 35 Professor VJ Duke May 19, 2014 at 14:51

        I’m not sure what they’re for, really.

      • 36 Catherine May 19, 2014 at 21:07

        Some people, I think, enjoy being reminded of what they look like. Weird, right?

      • 37 Professor VJ Duke May 20, 2014 at 00:10

        I think so! Though I would be curious if I didn’t know how much of an orc I really do look like.

      • 38 Catherine May 21, 2014 at 03:45

        Oh, I doubt you look like an Orc, professor! Maybe that…picture thing…wasn’t entirely accurate.

      • 39 Professor VJ Duke May 21, 2014 at 12:47

        *laughing* Well…now you have me confused!

      • 40 Catherine May 21, 2014 at 22:46

        That picture that the professor posted one day, saying it was the professor, but saying it looked like an Orc.

        Um, on second thought, maybe I’m just imagining things…never mind.

      • 41 Professor VJ Duke May 22, 2014 at 15:51

        Oh, I see what you mean!

        Catherine, I think you’re extremely level-headed. So, I’m sure you’re not imagining things.

      • 42 Catherine May 22, 2014 at 19:51

        Yay! I’m glad I’m not imagining it, because I was sure that it was real. Thanks for believing in me, professor!

      • 43 Professor VJ Duke May 23, 2014 at 14:50

        My pleasure, Catherine!

  4. 44 Julie Harris May 6, 2014 at 20:58

    The professor likes to stir up trouble, doesn’t he?

    • 45 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2014 at 23:23

      Yes, he does! Is it wicked of me?

  5. 46 icedmocha34 May 6, 2014 at 20:36

    That is a real problem, believe me. :lol:

    • 47 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2014 at 23:22

      *laughing* What should I do about it?

      • 48 icedmocha34 May 6, 2014 at 23:26

        Nah, I mean when your eyes won’t close.

      • 49 Professor VJ Duke May 7, 2014 at 13:58

        Oh yes! *laughs* It’s horrid.

      • 50 icedmocha34 May 8, 2014 at 00:43

        Don’t even want to imagine…

      • 51 Professor VJ Duke May 8, 2014 at 14:29

        Would they dry out, you think?

  6. 52 The Dancing Rider May 6, 2014 at 20:33

    A twisty sort of Zen conversation, with a bit of dadblamery tossed in, wasn’t it?! Of course the professor, instigator that he is ;-) , started all of this with his “barely see what I see” comment! I fear that got Mr. Magi on a roll … (laughing derisively…)

    • 53 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2014 at 23:22

      *laughing lots* I did start it! Did you know the professor is good at dropping a comment, and causing a conversation fire? I do it all the time–to Nick.

      Do you suppose Mr. Magi is more messed up than me?

      • 54 The Dancing Rider May 7, 2014 at 13:21

        Uh…I’m not answering that one. I think we should ask Mr. Warren… lol. Oh, wait. I know what his answer might be. ;-)

      • 55 Professor VJ Duke May 7, 2014 at 14:26

        Yeah. He picks on me something awful.

  7. 56 technophile9 May 6, 2014 at 19:05

    Would squinting qualify as not closing your eyes? Or perhaps, putting a hand in front of them?

    I wonder what mischief has occurred in Mr. Magi’s absence. :P

    • 57 Symphonist Sepperl May 6, 2014 at 20:29

      I bet it would. I’ve squinted on numerous occasions when I really should have closed my eyes!!

      • 58 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2014 at 23:21

        *laughing* I squint all the time, Symph.

    • 59 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2014 at 23:12

      Yes, I think it would. Don’t you think so?

      Well, DS has become a bishop, you know.

  8. 60 Amy Pinkrose May 6, 2014 at 18:44

    Professor, um, my, I do find some complicated matters here. Why on earth would a Magi close his eyes? Magis never close their eyes. *thinks hard* There is the matter of the messes here. This is your responsibility for you created PL …. so you cannot push these messes on someone else’s shoulders. That is just plain wrong. And last, nope make that second last, the Professor has such a big nose. He must have a lot of sinus problems. And now last, the Professor lied to me. *shocked* He told me he does not wear bow ties, and now he is talking about a RED bow tie? I never! And in closing I really need to get something off my chest. I AM PINK. Got it? No red. Uh uh. YOU like RED. I AM PINK. I know in your befuddled muddled state, pink and red can be confused. Now where was I??? *throwing kisses* BYE! Yours very sincerely, LadyP as in PINK

    • 61 Symphonist Sepperl May 6, 2014 at 20:30

      M’dear, you are most definitely BLUE.

      • 62 Amy Pinkrose May 6, 2014 at 20:35

        Who Me? *squeaks* My purple wings must have bled through. Darn! Now I shall have to shower again!

    • 63 Symphonist Sepperl May 6, 2014 at 21:52

      No, I believe your wings are blue…

      • 64 Amy Pinkrose May 6, 2014 at 21:55

        Take you sunglasses off. You’ll see they are purple. ;)

    • 65 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2014 at 23:11

      *blocks every single kiss on a shield and throws them to the toads* LadyP, the professor most certainly did not create the PL! It exists–and it’s coming for you!

      Everyone knows pink is a washed out red…

      • 66 Amy Pinkrose May 6, 2014 at 23:39

        Well, you certainly sound irritable! I don’t need this. So, I am not talking to you until you get out of the other side of the bed and get ungrumpy! HURRUMPH!

      • 67 Professor VJ Duke May 7, 2014 at 14:00

        I fell out of bed, dadblameit!

      • 68 Amy Pinkrose May 7, 2014 at 14:04

        GOOD! You deserved it! Did you knock niceness back into you? IF not, I am NOT talking to you! HUH! *arms crossed acros chest, foot tapping floor*

      • 69 Professor VJ Duke May 7, 2014 at 14:31

        *gives LadyP a cherry and katana*

      • 70 Amy Pinkrose May 7, 2014 at 14:59

        I accept.

      • 71 Professor VJ Duke May 7, 2014 at 23:27

        *smiles bigly*

      • 72 Amy Pinkrose May 8, 2014 at 00:12

        *doubly smiles bigly*

      • 73 Professor VJ Duke May 8, 2014 at 14:28

        Now that’s just awesome.

      • 74 Amy Pinkrose May 8, 2014 at 15:20

        Oh, Professor, LadyP cannot come out to play today. Go read my latest post and you will understand. *waving goodbye* for now …..

      • 75 Professor VJ Duke May 8, 2014 at 18:51

        *waves goodbye*

      • 76 Amy Pinkrose May 8, 2014 at 22:18

        *byeeeeee*

      • 77 Professor VJ Duke May 9, 2014 at 01:22

        *bows*

      • 78 Amy Pinkrose May 9, 2014 at 01:41

        Have you gone to um, manner school or something lately? You see different. OH! Wait! You fell out of bed! That’s it. Now I see …..

      • 79 Professor VJ Duke May 9, 2014 at 20:34

        And I’m not sure I do.

      • 80 Amy Pinkrose May 9, 2014 at 21:20

        What? Have manners?

      • 81 Professor VJ Duke May 12, 2014 at 12:46

        Yes.

      • 82 Amy Pinkrose May 12, 2014 at 13:13

        Are you sure?

      • 83 Professor VJ Duke May 12, 2014 at 16:42

        Well, how can I tell?

    • 84 Symphonist Sepperl May 7, 2014 at 00:42

      Sunglasses? Huh… that’s why everything looks blue!

      • 85 Amy Pinkrose May 7, 2014 at 00:53

        *clapping hands* I think the fact sunk in! Hurrayyyy!! Yep, that could have a wee thing or two to do with why you see blue. *giggle*

  9. 86 MikeW May 6, 2014 at 17:00

    dadblamery…a sub-oceanic guardian with a Schultz-like face, mischievous, and a fine addition of characters, mythological?

    • 87 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2014 at 17:36

      Yes, he is a fine addition. I’m not sure. What do you make of him–overall, I mean?

  10. 88 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 6, 2014 at 15:45

    You could do a better job of watching over the PL, professor. You have created quite the mess for him to survey. I’m off to walk with Mr. Magi his black rod has me mesmerized.

    I knew you were the sun all along, you know. Keep your eyes open or you’ll have an even bigger mess, I think.

    • 89 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2014 at 16:01

      But you see, I just chronicle it. Besides, that black rod keeps Mr. Magi safe. Should I come along?

      Maybe I should set?

      • 90 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 6, 2014 at 19:29

        (considers letting him off the hook) I have no doubt that it does keep Magi safe, Duke. *whispers in your ear* Yes…you know I don’t know him well enough to journey alone with him. Plus, don’t you go everywhere with me now?

        NO!! Don’t go anywhere…

      • 91 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2014 at 23:16

        Okay, I’ll come along. Tell him to wait! Grab his hat, actually.

        Doesn’t every sun set?

      • 92 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 7, 2014 at 00:12

        Well, don’t come along if you don’t want to. *calls after Magi*
        Why is he looking at me strange? Maybe I should stay here after all. Why do you want his hat? Are you trying to get me in trouble?

        Yes. Go ahead then…

      • 93 Professor VJ Duke May 7, 2014 at 14:06

        Well, if you grab his hat, he’ll stop moving for a second and we can catch up. Perhaps we should just send Charlie with him?

        Hmm…

      • 94 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 7, 2014 at 20:02

        *holding his hat* Trying very hard not to put it on your head. Thinks you’d look handsome in it. I’m not sending Charlie alone with Magi. Plus, I’d like to go with you and Magi. I want to see what you see…

        Yes. See, this is an example of me not being able to argue against you. They do set, but I could tell you why I don’t want you to, however, I probably won’t.

      • 95 Professor VJ Duke May 7, 2014 at 23:47

        But I’m feeling lazy all the sudden. *puts the hat on* Now I look like a plum. Oh dear.

        By all means tell!

      • 96 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 8, 2014 at 01:56

        Lazy, but why? Come on, Duke… *pulls you by the hand*
        No, you look fantastic! *pats the top of you hat from my tipy toes* Let Charlie ride up there…

        Wouldn’t that be the easy thing to do? I don’t do easy well.

      • 97 Professor VJ Duke May 8, 2014 at 14:44

        Okay, let’s go. A plum, I tell you! A purple one, too. Rats and a Heifer. Okay, but Mr. Magi will want his hat back.

        Now I’m disappointed…

      • 98 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 8, 2014 at 15:03

        What does that mean…a plum? Charlie can ride on Magi’s hat, he won’t care, right? He seems reasonable. Where is Magi going exactly?

        Oh you are not! You know what my answer will be.

      • 99 Professor VJ Duke May 8, 2014 at 15:14

        Oh, probably on a dangerous adventure. He’ll probably get killed. A plum…it can mean a messy sort of person, or a dressy person.

        Time for some guacamole!

      • 100 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 8, 2014 at 15:18

        NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Do not kill Magi. I will be so mad, Duke!
        Oh! How nice…I wanna be a plum.

        Yes, hurry! I had some last night. I make amazing guacamole!

      • 101 Professor VJ Duke May 8, 2014 at 18:51

        I won’t kill him! I bet he’d turn me into a turtle or something like that. Plums are nice, yes.

        Wowawee! *hands you a chip* Dip that, please.

      • 102 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 8, 2014 at 19:10

        I might like watching Magi turn you into a turtle seeings how you enjoy scaring me like that…! To eat? Yucketh! Plumbtastically fun to look at? Yes, I agree!

        *happily shares her guac* Soooo, what’d ya think?

      • 103 Professor VJ Duke May 9, 2014 at 01:09

        Oh dear! How’d I scare you? You don’t like plums, really? Me neither. They make my throat itchy.

        It’s awesome! Just like I thought. I like the tomatoes…

      • 104 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 9, 2014 at 02:30

        By making me think you were going to pop off Magi. I don’t like plums, if the peel is off, I don’t mind, but in general I’d rather a mango. Itchy, really?

        Yes, I sliced the grape tomatoes just for you. I love’em like that…too much garlic?

      • 105 Professor VJ Duke May 9, 2014 at 20:34

        Yes! Must be allergic of sorts.

        No! Tis perfect.

      • 106 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 9, 2014 at 20:57

        Ahh, stay away from those, please.

      • 107 Professor VJ Duke May 12, 2014 at 12:42

        I’ll try!

      • 108 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 12, 2014 at 19:18

        Try? Doesn’t seem like a goal…

      • 109 Professor VJ Duke May 12, 2014 at 23:08

        I used to be a goalie.

      • 110 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 13, 2014 at 02:42

        Did you really, Duketh? Soccer or hockey?

      • 111 Professor VJ Duke May 13, 2014 at 12:55

        Soccer. I’ve never played Hockey.

      • 112 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 13, 2014 at 13:41

        Soccer requires lots of breathing, huh? You like the jumping part, don’t you.

      • 113 Professor VJ Duke May 14, 2014 at 13:01

        I always liked to dive for the ball… *bigly smile*

      • 114 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 14, 2014 at 19:45

        Ouch! Loads of bruising, too. I want to see you play!

      • 115 Professor VJ Duke May 15, 2014 at 12:38

        That’s before I passed 100.

      • 116 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 15, 2014 at 13:40

        What a shame.

      • 117 Professor VJ Duke May 16, 2014 at 15:01

        Now I do other things.

      • 118 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 16, 2014 at 19:11

        Yes, like knife throwing, boxing and talking walks with me.

      • 119 Professor VJ Duke May 16, 2014 at 23:11

        That’s true…and other things!

      • 120 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 16, 2014 at 23:41

        Such as??

      • 121 Professor VJ Duke May 17, 2014 at 19:48

        Such as…shooting vids.

      • 122 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 17, 2014 at 21:23

        Yes, well, and that keeps you most busy, I suppose.

      • 123 Professor VJ Duke May 17, 2014 at 21:47

        Very busy for a short while. Then nothing.

      • 124 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 17, 2014 at 21:49

        Well, then you should do more, I guess. Right?

      • 125 Professor VJ Duke May 17, 2014 at 21:52

        Yes, mixing for a new one actually.

      • 126 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 17, 2014 at 21:57

        Sounds nice. I need inspiration..

    • 127 Symphonist Sepperl May 6, 2014 at 20:34

      The thing about the black rod is… nobody but Magi knows how to use it and he rarely ever does (he’s not all there). So it rarely does anybody any good or anybody any bad. It’s what you might call useless.

      • 128 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 6, 2014 at 20:39

        I think the idea of him merely carrying one is simply fantastic, don’t you? Sometimes all one needs is a prop. How are you doing, music man? Good to hear from you, always.

    • 129 Symphonist Sepperl May 6, 2014 at 21:55

      Why thank you! I am doing…. doing somewhere between 80 and 90 at the moment. It makes it difficult to type.

      • 130 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 6, 2014 at 22:49

        Now that is fast!! How do you manage?

      • 131 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2014 at 23:24

        That’s fabulous. We should do the Charger at that speed.

      • 132 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 7, 2014 at 00:13

        Yes, a white Charger going that fast will look like an angel flying through the air. She turns like she’s on rails. Powerful!

      • 133 Professor VJ Duke May 7, 2014 at 14:06

        Wow…

      • 134 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 7, 2014 at 20:03

        *smiles*….what?

      • 135 Professor VJ Duke May 7, 2014 at 23:47

        That sounds cool!

      • 136 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 8, 2014 at 01:57

        Yeah, tis. Sometimes she forces me into my seat and I feel like I’m under the car’s control. I love it.

      • 137 Professor VJ Duke May 8, 2014 at 14:45

        *nods* Indeed!

      • 138 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2014 at 23:23

        *laughing lots* Symph!

    • 139 Symphonist Sepperl May 7, 2014 at 00:45

      Oh, I meant 80–90 sec. of music! Sorry!

      • 140 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 7, 2014 at 01:51

        Well now…that sounds even better, Music Man. *laughs*

  11. 141 erinkenobi2893 May 6, 2014 at 15:35

    Did Mr. Magi get up on the wrong side of the cave? Or did a fish sneak up on him and scream “boo”? Or is he just in a hurry to getting around to undoing whatever mischief DS has cooked up???

    • 142 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2014 at 15:59

      He’s in a hurry, I think. Rather everywhere at once, isn’t he? Scattered. That’s a good word for him.

      • 143 erinkenobi2893 May 6, 2014 at 18:19

        Ahhhhh. Makes sense now. ;-P And I think I somewhat like being confused. Maybe I should be deliberately confused sometimes. What do you think, professor?

      • 144 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2014 at 23:08

        Definitely! I do it all time–and did you know…it works rather well?

      • 145 erinkenobi2893 May 8, 2014 at 11:13

        It does. It also annoys other people, which is another benefit in its favor. :-P

      • 146 Professor VJ Duke May 8, 2014 at 14:56

        For sure!

      • 147 erinkenobi2893 May 9, 2014 at 14:55

        :-P Annoying other people can be fun.

      • 148 Professor VJ Duke May 9, 2014 at 20:47

        It can!

      • 149 erinkenobi2893 May 10, 2014 at 14:31

        Like the time I put purple hair gel in Palpacreepy’s hair. :-P

      • 150 Professor VJ Duke May 12, 2014 at 12:54

        *laughing*

      • 151 erinkenobi2893 May 13, 2014 at 13:41

        It was fun ^_^

  12. 152 InfiniteZip May 6, 2014 at 15:31

    Oh my what a sunshiny smile the professor has, I would have thought him more dour and serious.

    • 153 erinkenobi2893 May 6, 2014 at 15:35

      There is a time for everything, right? ;-P

      • 154 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2014 at 15:59

        Very true! Do you think the professor dour, Erin?

      • 155 erinkenobi2893 May 6, 2014 at 18:20

        No, I think the professor is serious when need be and sometimes not, and brings amusement to others with reports of dadblamery. :-P

      • 156 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2014 at 23:09

        *smiles bigly* That’s it exactly! Plus, I’m a Sith.

      • 157 erinkenobi2893 May 8, 2014 at 11:13

        That too. *grins cheerfully*

      • 158 Professor VJ Duke May 8, 2014 at 14:56

        *laughs*

      • 159 erinkenobi2893 May 9, 2014 at 14:56

        Hey, we never completed our quest to kill the depression bug! 0_0

      • 160 Professor VJ Duke May 9, 2014 at 20:47

        That’s right! We must!

      • 161 erinkenobi2893 May 10, 2014 at 14:32

        *puts sword and scabbard on* Yes, we must! *slings battle-axe across back*

      • 162 Professor VJ Duke May 12, 2014 at 12:54

        You’re ready for sure!

      • 163 erinkenobi2893 May 13, 2014 at 13:42

        Except, I’m still having map troubles… *gets tangled up in map and doesn’t want to tear it, so stands still*

      • 164 Professor VJ Duke May 14, 2014 at 13:02

        *tears it for her*

      • 165 erinkenobi2893 May 15, 2014 at 14:53

        0_0 Now we have no map. Oh well… *stuffs it in backpack to use as kindling later* We’ll just do without. :-P

      • 166 Professor VJ Duke May 16, 2014 at 15:10

        Yes, we will! The professor has an awesome sense of direction at times.

      • 167 erinkenobi2893 May 16, 2014 at 16:33

        What about at other times?

      • 168 Professor VJ Duke May 16, 2014 at 23:05

        Other times…we could walk right into the enemy’s camp!

      • 169 erinkenobi2893 May 19, 2014 at 12:05

        That would be cool, and then we’d wipe ’em out! X-P

      • 170 Professor VJ Duke May 19, 2014 at 14:52

        We would!

      • 171 erinkenobi2893 May 19, 2014 at 16:12

        And then we’d bury their armor for archaeologists to find.

      • 172 Professor VJ Duke May 20, 2014 at 00:01

        I like that idea lots!

      • 173 erinkenobi2893 May 20, 2014 at 13:10

        X-D Let’s do it! *walks into the camp as stealthy as a Ranger, completely unnoticed by the enemy*

      • 174 Professor VJ Duke May 21, 2014 at 12:40

        *follows behind* Let’s locate that dadblamery!

      • 175 erinkenobi2893 May 21, 2014 at 13:38

        *sneaks into the general’s tent and steals a map* Heehee.

      • 176 Professor VJ Duke May 21, 2014 at 19:28

        *high five* Awesome! Now what?

      • 177 erinkenobi2893 May 22, 2014 at 12:05

        Now, we create a diversion… Do you happen to carry the fancy powder that makes campfires burst upward in columns of flame, professor? We need to get their attention…

      • 178 Professor VJ Duke May 22, 2014 at 15:55

        I do! But it’s dangerous. Here goes… *fire goes up to the heavens*

      • 179 erinkenobi2893 May 22, 2014 at 16:16

        *soldiers rush out of their tents in awe, but rather than fighting us they stare stupidly at the fire* Hoi! I thought we were going to war here!

      • 180 Professor VJ Duke May 23, 2014 at 14:43

        So did I! Fools!

      • 181 InfiniteZip May 6, 2014 at 16:00

        But of course:)

      • 182 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2014 at 16:06

        You know, I really like your gravatar. Look at Snoopy.

      • 183 InfiniteZip May 6, 2014 at 16:10

        I like to sleep on the house under the stars:)

      • 184 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2014 at 17:31

        Now that would be fun. Have you ever seen me ride past?

      • 185 InfiniteZip May 6, 2014 at 17:34

        Should I tell or keep it a secret?

      • 186 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2014 at 17:36

        Tell by all means! *laughs*

      • 187 erinkenobi2893 May 6, 2014 at 18:20

        :-P

      • 188 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2014 at 23:09

        You should!

      • 189 erinkenobi2893 May 8, 2014 at 11:14

        Hmmm… I must sleep too heavy. Either that or it’s the fact that the blinds are nearly always closed in our room. Probably the latter. :-P

      • 190 Professor VJ Duke May 8, 2014 at 14:56

        They’re both good reasons.

      • 191 erinkenobi2893 May 9, 2014 at 14:57

        Unless I’m too hyper to sleep. :-P

      • 192 Professor VJ Duke May 9, 2014 at 20:48

        Then you do pushups.

      • 193 erinkenobi2893 May 10, 2014 at 14:32

        Yeah, until I’m too tired to sleep. ;-P

      • 194 Professor VJ Duke May 12, 2014 at 12:54

        Yes, I see.

      • 195 erinkenobi2893 May 13, 2014 at 13:42

        :-P

      • 196 erinkenobi2893 May 23, 2014 at 17:39

        What ridiculous fellows. *wallops one on the helm with my battle axe*

      • 197 Professor VJ Duke May 25, 2014 at 17:12

        Ooo, blood everywhere!

      • 198 erinkenobi2893 May 25, 2014 at 18:44

        That makes it sound just horrible! *throws a coconut at random soldier*

      • 199 Professor VJ Duke May 26, 2014 at 12:52

        Now that would hurt.

      • 200 erinkenobi2893 May 26, 2014 at 13:08

        It would. But he’s wearing armor.

      • 201 Professor VJ Duke May 26, 2014 at 13:44

        Well, it will jar him then.

      • 202 erinkenobi2893 May 26, 2014 at 14:39

        Which is good. :-P

      • 203 Professor VJ Duke May 26, 2014 at 19:37

        Yes.

      • 204 erinkenobi2893 May 27, 2014 at 14:04

        Wallop! *smacks another soldier in the head with a skillet X-D*

      • 205 Professor VJ Duke May 27, 2014 at 15:56

        Use your sword, dadblameit!

      • 206 erinkenobi2893 May 27, 2014 at 15:57

        But I like using the skillet! *draws sword anyway, and begins to use the skillet as both buckler and bludgeon*

      • 207 Professor VJ Duke May 27, 2014 at 16:02

        Sam does that, too, I think.

      • 208 erinkenobi2893 May 27, 2014 at 16:05

        He does. ^_^ That was one of my favorite parts of the movie. WHAANGGGG! “I think I’m getting the hang of it!” BONGGGGGGGGG!!! X-P

      • 209 Professor VJ Duke May 27, 2014 at 16:12

        Haha. I love that scene too!

      • 210 erinkenobi2893 May 27, 2014 at 16:20

        X-D

    • 211 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2014 at 15:58

      Well–I think I’m laughing and smiling all the time. What do you make of it?

      • 212 InfiniteZip May 6, 2014 at 16:00

        I think it is a wonderful thing my friend, Coolio I might add.

      • 213 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2014 at 16:05

        And I try to be professorish all the time–which is a wonder.

  13. 214 Debbie May 6, 2014 at 15:03

    You know, Professor, that Mr. Magi has LOTS of work to do, yet you’re waylaying him with dadblamery. Closing eyes? Trying not to see things? Really, sir, you’re antagonizing him!

    • 215 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2014 at 15:55

      *laughing* I’m sorry! I didn’t mean it, I think. You’re right: he does have a lot of work to do. But…well, wasn’t he the one bothering me?

  14. 216 walt walker May 6, 2014 at 14:42

    I often use the tactic of closing my eyes to not see things I don’t wish to see. It’s always worked before, but as they say, past results do not guarantee future success. It would probably behoove me to come up with a plan b. Problem is, I don’t much like behoovery.

    • 217 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2014 at 15:54

      Hahahaha. Now what is behoovery? You see, I think I’m rather lost on the principle.

      And that thing about future successes leaves me sorta unnerved. I’ve always counted on that formula.

      • 218 walt walker May 7, 2014 at 01:08

        What do you mean, what is behoovery? It is the art of being hooved, of course. If you are lost on the priniple then I am afraid we are both lost. I was looking to your leadership, there.

        One ought be very careful about the things upon which one counts. Don’t you think? Am I very wrong on this?

      • 219 Professor VJ Duke May 7, 2014 at 14:15

        *laughing* Walt! We’re lost, I fear. Unless… Do you suppose hooved has to do with cows and such like that?

        You are not wrong on this! But I never learn my lessons, you see.

  15. 220 FictionFan May 6, 2014 at 13:05

    The Professor really must stop drinking that Sotsiz tea…he’s sounding even more befuddled than usual (which is a wonder and a third and a bit).

    Nice picture, but that’s not what I see when I see the Professor smiling bigger than the moon can… *dons aura of mystery*

    • 221 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2014 at 13:06

      And a bit! Goodness. Well…I was…just fitting in. Do you still think I’m like Mr. Magi? Maybe anyone who drinks the tea is.

      Ooo. What do you see?

      • 222 FictionFan May 6, 2014 at 13:11

        I do – except that he can raise one eyebrow in a quizzical manner and I’m not sure that the Professor can… The matching top hats are the give-away though.

        I would love to tell you, but I fear it’s against the Punchy rules to give clear answers to questions… *chuckles*

      • 223 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2014 at 15:44

        I’ve been thinking about getting a red bow tie on mine. Or red ribbon. Or a knife pin.

        Well, dadblameit! Tell you what, if you tell me, I’ll answer one of your questions.

      • 224 FictionFan May 6, 2014 at 16:22

        A red ribbon would be very classy – I think you should combine that and the knife pin (not totally sure what a knife pin is, but using my imagination…)

        Huh! D’you really think I’m daft enough to fall for that line? (Be very careful how you answer that question…)

      • 225 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2014 at 17:32

        (I’m not sure either, but I like the sound of it, you know.) Okay, I might do this.

        Oh dear… Umm…yes, I do! I know I certainly would! (How’s that?)

      • 226 FictionFan May 6, 2014 at 20:05

        (So do I and it looks good – in my mind.) You should…then it will be clear to everyone how much cooler the Professor is than Mr Magi.

        Yes, you do think I’m daft?! I see!! Well, I think you’re…you’re…silly! So there! Put that in your pipe and smoke it!

      • 227 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2014 at 23:16

        The professor wishes he was as a cool as a turtle, but I’m not! (I’ll try to find a knife pin.)

        I will smoke it, madam! I think the professor is a silly. Wouldn’t you say that?

      • 228 FictionFan May 7, 2014 at 01:04

        Are turtles cool? I’m not terribly well acquainted with them. But the Professor is as cool as a polar bear for sure…maybe even a penguin! (Do! But remember it will need to colour co-ordinate with the ribbon.)

        I would say that, yes. And I suppose I might even admit that FF is daft…sometimes…

      • 229 Professor VJ Duke May 7, 2014 at 14:11

        I think they are. At least, I’d like one, that is. *nods* Definitely a penguin! (I never bothered myself about color co-ordinating, you know.)

        Which is a good thing!

  16. 230 Simply Skeptical May 6, 2014 at 12:42

    Professor this was quite a confusing conversation that accomplished none but the most punchyish of jargon.

    About trying not to see what you’re seeing I find that even closing the eyes still brings it into view.

    Thanks for that sunnyshiny smile it warms the day with joy!

    • 231 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2014 at 12:59

      I thought it made some sense. You must be looking at it wrongly. You see…well, I’m not sure what I should say.

      I suppose you’re right! But that’s when you have to close your mind, too.

      My pleasure!

  17. 232 PorterGirl May 6, 2014 at 12:28

    What a lovely smile that sun has!

    Mr M sounds a little confused after his hibernation, but then he always sounds a bit like that. Thank you for explaining more about it, Professor!

    • 233 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2014 at 12:58

      For sure!

      My pleasure. I think he lives a confused life–unlike the professor, you know!

      • 234 PorterGirl May 6, 2014 at 13:07

        I am sure your life is confusion-free, Professor! Poor Mr M. I feel a bit sorry for him at times :)

      • 235 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2014 at 15:42

        I do too! But he’s well. I think. I really like the chap.

      • 236 PorterGirl May 6, 2014 at 15:44

        Oh good, I like him too. Give him a wink from me when you next see him ;)

      • 237 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2014 at 16:00

        *laughing* A wink is perfect. As of late, everyone thinks my winks are nervous twitchings. But they’re not!

      • 238 PorterGirl May 6, 2014 at 16:18

        I am sure the Professoris rarely nervous.

      • 239 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2014 at 17:31

        Well, usually just excited! And that’s how I bet you are, too.

      • 240 PorterGirl May 6, 2014 at 17:38

        Yes! That is exactly how I am. Unless I am hungry, and then I can be a bit scary. Don’t worry – I always make sure I have food :)

      • 241 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2014 at 23:03

        Haha! You know, the professor is notoriously mean if he isn’t fed, too.

      • 242 PorterGirl May 7, 2014 at 05:40

        We are surprisingly similar at times, you and I :)

      • 243 Professor VJ Duke May 7, 2014 at 14:19

        It’s a great wonder!

      • 244 PorterGirl May 7, 2014 at 14:22

        ;)

      • 245 Professor VJ Duke May 7, 2014 at 14:32

        *smiles*

  18. 246 Me, Myself and DIY May 6, 2014 at 12:27

    A very Charlie Brown sunshine Professor. And that does make one happy – no wonder that’s your preference!

    • 247 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2014 at 12:57

      *laughing* I think it looks like me. All it needs is a top hat.
