Some Things That Should Probably Have Been Mentioned Long Ago

So, things are changing slightly in the PL. Well, technically, everything is just fine in the PL. It’s always the same, I fear. The Punchy Lands always returns to status quo.

But, anyway, the professor’s focus has been redirected. You see…well, think of it like this: Suppose a giant tortoise bit your left toe. Now, at that point, you would be completely focused on your left toe. That’s sorta what happened to the professor. Though, to be fair, I wasn’t bitten by a tortoise.

Therefore, the MicP Studios Team has decided to explain exactly what the professor has been up to, as well as explain the origin of the PL, and mostly everything behind the scenes.

It’ll be scary.

But not smelly, like my favorite flower.

Corpse Flower

 

I should also mention that I’m going to mars, thanks to FEF!

    Mars! That sounds like fun!! Except for, like, you know, the height thing…

    • 2 Professor VJ Duke November 1, 2014 at 17:32

      The height thing?

  2. 3 walt walker October 30, 2014 at 01:11

    Now Mars should be a hoot. I’ve always wanted to go. Is there a good toe doctor there?

    • 4 Professor VJ Duke October 30, 2014 at 13:27

      I’m not sure. Do you suppose the martian feet are a bit different from ours? Maybe the doctor would be a wicked one.

      • 5 walt walker October 30, 2014 at 13:46

        Well, the toe may be a bit different but, at the end of the foot it’s still just a toe, isn’t it? Unless it shoots lasers.

      • 6 Professor VJ Duke October 30, 2014 at 22:03

        Nice! I wish mine would should some lasers. Maybe like a red laser.

      • 7 walt walker October 31, 2014 at 01:20

        Blaster or lightsaber?

      • 8 Professor VJ Duke October 31, 2014 at 18:46

        Definitely a lightsaber. They’re so cool.

  3. 9 erinkenobi2893 October 30, 2014 at 00:27

    Awww… I’d skype with you on the shuttle, but I have a movie scheduled for that night. :-(

    • 10 Professor VJ Duke October 30, 2014 at 13:26

      Aha! which movie is it?

      • 11 erinkenobi2893 November 1, 2014 at 19:39

        The teacher didn’t say. :-/

      • 12 Professor VJ Duke November 2, 2014 at 23:52

        You should file a complaint.

      • 13 erinkenobi2893 November 4, 2014 at 01:04

        I will do my best to do so immediately.

      • 14 Professor VJ Duke November 4, 2014 at 14:30

        *nods*

  4. 15 erinkenobi2893 October 30, 2014 at 00:26

    Nice flower! x-D (and nice gas mask as well. ;-P) Also, I can’t wait to hear about your adventures on Mars! Send me a postcard! :-D And if they don’t sell postcards there, make up one! :-D

    • 16 Professor VJ Duke October 30, 2014 at 13:26

      Right on! I’ll make one. Erin, do you suppose there’ll be white apes up there? (Like, in the book, there is.)

      • 17 erinkenobi2893 November 1, 2014 at 19:38

        Which book? And no, I don’t think there will be white apes. However, there probably will be space squirrels! :-P And maybe Iron Man (?)

      • 18 Professor VJ Duke November 2, 2014 at 23:52

        In the Princess of Mars. Well…squirrels will be neat. I bet they’re white up there. Iron Man?

      • 19 erinkenobi2893 November 4, 2014 at 01:04

        The Princess of Mars? I’ve never heard of it before. (And Iron Man tried to ninja me. -_-)

      • 20 Professor VJ Duke November 4, 2014 at 14:29

        It was a book first, then they made a movie called John Carter. I love it. (Did he really?)

      • 21 erinkenobi2893 November 4, 2014 at 14:43

        Oh. (Yup. He did. Only he clanks. :-P So I ninja’d him instead. :-P With a suction cup tipped blowdart gun.)

      • 22 Professor VJ Duke November 5, 2014 at 13:30

        Nice! I’ve always wanted a blowdart gun.

      • 23 erinkenobi2893 November 5, 2014 at 13:32

        :-P My brother has one, so I borrowed it. It’s more reliable than Nerf guns.

      • 24 Professor VJ Duke November 5, 2014 at 13:49

        Yeah, nerf guns never work right.

      • 25 erinkenobi2893 November 5, 2014 at 13:53

        They tend to jam after a while.

      • 26 Professor VJ Duke November 5, 2014 at 21:06

        Exactly.

      • 27 erinkenobi2893 November 5, 2014 at 21:23

        And the darts get bent.

      • 28 Professor VJ Duke November 5, 2014 at 21:30

        Yep…

      • 29 erinkenobi2893 November 5, 2014 at 21:33

        So irritating, isn’t it?

      • 30 Professor VJ Duke November 6, 2014 at 13:36

        Horribly. It’s so frustrating.

      • 31 erinkenobi2893 November 6, 2014 at 13:42

        Yeah…

  5. 32 The Lite Rider October 29, 2014 at 19:29

    It’s all very interesting and fun. Enjoy your trip to Mars. Don’t expect too much. I’ve been there, though I probably went to the wrong, unvacation-like, spot! :)

    • 33 The Lite Rider October 29, 2014 at 19:32

      Oh, and I like your fave flower/plant. Lovely smell. ;-)

      • 34 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2014 at 20:57

        Yes! I can send you one, if you’d like.

    • 35 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2014 at 20:57

      *laughs* What’s it like there?

      • 36 The Lite Rider October 30, 2014 at 13:44

        Haven’t you been? Much like the PL desert!

      • 37 Professor VJ Duke October 30, 2014 at 22:01

        Aha! Now that does make sense. Only it’d be red, I think.

  6. 38 L. Marie October 29, 2014 at 13:32

    This must be corpse flower day, because I also mentioned that flower in a post. Whee. :-)
    Glad you get to go to Mars, though I hope your toe heals from whatever happened to it. Are you going to Mars because it is the red planet and you like red?

    • 39 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2014 at 13:42

      Yes, I know! I laughed when I read your post. It’s awesome.

      Yes! And because I’d like to meet a Thark.

  7. 40 Me, Myself and DIY October 29, 2014 at 12:27

    After last night, I’d reconsider Mars. (So glad no one was in that spaceship) As far as the news, I’ll be keeping an eye out for the latest and greatest.

    • 41 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2014 at 13:40

      Oh no…what happened?

      • 42 Me, Myself and DIY October 29, 2014 at 15:03

        The Antares rocket blew up on lift off.

      • 43 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2014 at 20:49

        *shocked face* I don’t want to go the sudden…

  8. 44 Lesley October 29, 2014 at 09:48

    Say, Mars? And you haven’t even been to Zimbabwe!

    • 45 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2014 at 13:39

      I know! Well, Lesley, when are you going to invite me down?

      • 46 Lesley October 29, 2014 at 14:00

        As soon as you tell me all about your trip when you’re back! There wouldn’t be any PL’ers on the int’l space station, would there?

      • 47 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2014 at 20:43

        No, I don’t think so, which will be good. But it’ll be scary up there, Lesley!

      • 48 Lesley October 30, 2014 at 06:04

        What’s there to be scared of, Professor?

      • 49 Professor VJ Duke October 30, 2014 at 13:31

        Beetles with fangs?

      • 50 Lesley October 30, 2014 at 13:50

        Now, imagine if you domesticated one! That would be….fun.

      • 51 Professor VJ Duke October 30, 2014 at 22:04

        *laughing* Especially if he did my bidding.

      • 52 Lesley October 31, 2014 at 06:37

        That would be something, wouldn’t it!?

      • 53 Professor VJ Duke October 31, 2014 at 18:54

        Yeah! I should get you one, too, Lesley.

      • 54 Lesley November 1, 2014 at 04:35

        Hmm, I hope out there they have ones that shoot lasers. Now that would be my cup of tea! (No I don’t mean it that way, Professor).

      • 55 Professor VJ Duke November 1, 2014 at 17:33

        *laughing lots* But I doubt they exist.

      • 56 Lesley November 3, 2014 at 07:27

        It’s an adventure now, Professor. Keep your eyes open, you just might discover some cool things! You’ll have to tell me all about it.

      • 57 Professor VJ Duke November 3, 2014 at 15:39

        I shall. Maybe I”ll perish!

  9. 58 Angeline M October 29, 2014 at 01:57

    Ok, so what’s the deal? I don’t for a minute believe you’re going to Mars. I doubt we’ll get a straight answer, but at least you’ll have that duel before you go.

    • 59 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2014 at 13:35

      But you see my ticket, Angeline. So it must be a truth, right?

      • 60 Angeline M October 29, 2014 at 14:44

        In the PL I suppose. You, my dear P VJ, are a conundrum.

      • 61 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2014 at 20:48

        *smiles bigly* An old one.

  10. 62 Susan P October 28, 2014 at 22:54

    I knew it! You are flying into deep space.

    • 63 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2014 at 13:28

      Yeah, that seems about right. But Mars is rather close, isn’t it?

      • 64 Susan P October 29, 2014 at 14:18

        Not close enough for me to want to go there. Though Professor Ransom went there…

      • 65 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2014 at 20:45

        Who’s he?

      • 66 Susan P October 29, 2014 at 22:38

        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elwin_Ransom

      • 67 Professor VJ Duke October 30, 2014 at 13:16

        Now he has a good first name.

      • 68 Susan P October 30, 2014 at 13:45

        Of course. CS Lewis is good that way.

      • 69 Professor VJ Duke October 30, 2014 at 22:01

        I like him.

      • 70 Susan P October 30, 2014 at 23:02

        I like him, too. He makes me smile and he makes me think. Why do you like him?

      • 71 Professor VJ Duke October 31, 2014 at 18:43

        For the same reasons, I suppose. Plus, I think The Horse and His Boy is the best adventure story ever.

      • 72 Susan P October 31, 2014 at 23:59

        It pretty much is though my favorite is The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.

      • 73 Professor VJ Duke November 1, 2014 at 17:30

        That’s a good one as well.

      • 74 Susan P November 1, 2014 at 20:09

        Do you like Eustace?

      • 75 Professor VJ Duke November 2, 2014 at 23:53

        Yes, I think he was the most sensible character throughout the story.

      • 76 Susan P November 3, 2014 at 14:08

        Ummm…really?

      • 77 Professor VJ Duke November 3, 2014 at 15:40

        Yeah! Now, if I was a dragon, I would have sunk the ship.

      • 78 Susan P November 3, 2014 at 15:42

        I believe you.

      • 79 Professor VJ Duke November 3, 2014 at 15:46

        *smiles proudly*

      • 80 Susan P November 3, 2014 at 18:37

        Throws a snow ball.

      • 81 Professor VJ Duke November 3, 2014 at 21:11

        *tries to duck*

      • 82 Susan P November 3, 2014 at 21:24

        I’ve got plenty more where that one came from and you can’t stay awake forever.

      • 83 Professor VJ Duke November 4, 2014 at 14:17

        I can! *wills eyes open*

      • 84 Susan P November 4, 2014 at 20:51

        Pulls up a chair and puts a pillow next to the perfeser,

      • 85 Professor VJ Duke November 5, 2014 at 13:44

        What am I to do with a pillow?

      • 86 Susan P November 5, 2014 at 15:00

        Give it to Rip Van Winkle.

  11. 87 Ms. Vee October 28, 2014 at 22:22

    That’s some strange looking flower Professor. I want to go to Mars so I won’t have to smell it! :)

    • 88 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2014 at 13:28

      But…Ms.Vee, what if these flowers are all over Mars?

      • 89 Ms. Vee October 29, 2014 at 14:07

        Oh no! I didn’t consider that a possibility. You just shattered my dream!:)

      • 90 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2014 at 20:43

        *laughing* You might like them!

      • 91 Ms. Vee October 29, 2014 at 20:48

        They appear to be taller than I am!

      • 92 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2014 at 21:00

        No! Really? How tall are they?

      • 93 Ms. Vee October 29, 2014 at 21:02

        They looked tall. I’m just a shortly.

      • 94 Professor VJ Duke October 30, 2014 at 13:13

        Which is just perfect! And they were tall, I think.

      • 95 Ms. Vee October 30, 2014 at 13:15

        In that case I don’t want to space travel. I will keep my feet firmly on the soil on Earth!

      • 96 Professor VJ Duke October 30, 2014 at 13:31

        Yeah…it’s probably safer, you know. Unless they come here.

      • 97 Ms. Vee October 30, 2014 at 13:32

        Oh my I hope not!

      • 98 Professor VJ Duke October 30, 2014 at 13:33

        Yes, then it would be war!

      • 99 Ms. Vee October 30, 2014 at 13:37

        LOL! Indeed. :)

      • 100 Professor VJ Duke October 30, 2014 at 22:00

        *bows*

      • 101 Ms. Vee October 30, 2014 at 22:56

        And I curtsy. :)

      • 102 Professor VJ Duke October 31, 2014 at 18:43

        And I bow twice.

      • 103 Ms. Vee October 31, 2014 at 20:01

        You’re too kind! :)

      • 104 Professor VJ Duke November 1, 2014 at 17:21

        No, I’m wicked!

      • 105 Ms. Vee November 1, 2014 at 17:30

        I didn’t mean to offend you!!!!! LOL LOL!

      • 106 Professor VJ Duke November 1, 2014 at 17:33

        *laughing* I’m heartless, too!

      • 107 Ms. Vee November 1, 2014 at 17:47

        My goodness! I won’t tell anyone. :)

      • 108 Professor VJ Duke November 2, 2014 at 23:49

        Oh, it’s okay. I lost my heart in battle.

      • 109 Ms. Vee November 2, 2014 at 23:50

        I hope some blood is still pumping!!!!:)

      • 110 Professor VJ Duke November 3, 2014 at 00:02

        Oh yes. I’ve managed it.

      • 111 Ms. Vee November 3, 2014 at 00:37

        That’s good to hear!

      • 112 Professor VJ Duke November 3, 2014 at 15:37

        *bows*

      • 113 Ms. Vee November 3, 2014 at 22:40

        Are you holding a weapon?

      • 114 Professor VJ Duke November 4, 2014 at 14:22

        I don’t think so, why?

      • 115 Ms. Vee November 4, 2014 at 15:34

        Just checking. I want to know if I need a shield. :)

      • 116 Professor VJ Duke November 5, 2014 at 13:34

        I’ll bring you one!

      • 117 Ms. Vee November 5, 2014 at 13:43

        That’s a deal. I like the ones with real gems on it! Rubies and diamonds preferably. If you can scatter some emeralds in a few spots that would be fantastic! This way I can have an advantage, perhaps blind the enemy!!!! :) Going to workout. I’ll check back on this request. :)

      • 118 Professor VJ Duke November 5, 2014 at 13:50

        Okay, then…but no stealing them off the shield, you know!

      • 119 Ms. Vee November 5, 2014 at 15:09

        Can I borrow them when I attend s ball with the prince? I promise to replace them.

      • 120 Professor VJ Duke November 5, 2014 at 21:17

        *nods* But can I come to the ball?

      • 121 Ms. Vee November 5, 2014 at 21:18

        Yes Professor, you can accompany me and be the Prince! :)

      • 122 Professor VJ Duke November 5, 2014 at 21:29

        I’ll have to bring my katana!

      • 123 Ms. Vee November 5, 2014 at 21:31

        LOL if you insist Professor! :)

      • 124 Professor VJ Duke November 5, 2014 at 21:32

        I must need it! What if we’re attacked?

      • 125 Ms. Vee November 5, 2014 at 21:33

        Then you bring it, but keep it hidden! :)

      • 126 Professor VJ Duke November 6, 2014 at 13:36

        Okay, I shall!

      • 127 Ms. Vee November 6, 2014 at 13:38

        That sounds great to me. :)

      • 128 Professor VJ Duke November 6, 2014 at 13:55

        Awesome! *fist pump*

      • 129 Ms. Vee November 6, 2014 at 13:58

        LOL! Cool Professor! Right back at ya! :)

      • 130 Professor VJ Duke November 7, 2014 at 19:41

        Nice! I’m glad you dig it.

      • 131 Ms. Vee November 7, 2014 at 19:44

        I do! You are a lively character indeed. You keep me amused with your humor. :)

      • 132 Professor VJ Duke November 7, 2014 at 20:03

        *laughs* Just very dull and professorish you know.

      • 133 Ms. Vee November 7, 2014 at 20:34

        I beg to differ. :)

      • 134 Professor VJ Duke November 8, 2014 at 20:44

        And heartless!

      • 135 Ms. Vee November 8, 2014 at 20:49

        Hmmm. Maybe I can find you a caring heart. :)

      • 136 Professor VJ Duke November 8, 2014 at 20:53

        Where would you look?

      • 137 Ms. Vee November 8, 2014 at 20:54

        In the Land of Oz!!!!!!

      • 138 Professor VJ Duke November 11, 2014 at 13:04

        The wizard lives there!

      • 139 Ms. Vee November 11, 2014 at 13:25

        I am the wizard! Argh!

      • 140 Professor VJ Duke November 11, 2014 at 13:30

        Cool! Do I get a wish?

      • 141 Ms. Vee November 11, 2014 at 13:31

        No. I’m going to give you a caring heart.

      • 142 Professor VJ Duke November 12, 2014 at 13:42

        Oh dear. How?

      • 143 Ms. Vee November 12, 2014 at 14:59

        It’s magic.I can’t reveal the secret. :)

      • 144 Professor VJ Duke November 13, 2014 at 23:01

        That’s not fair!

      • 145 Ms. Vee November 17, 2014 at 22:36

        If I tell you, the magic might not work properly. You don’t want your heartless chest exposed..do you?

      • 146 Professor VJ Duke November 18, 2014 at 17:19

        No…that would be bad, right?

      • 147 Ms. Vee November 18, 2014 at 18:47

        Absolutely. I want the wave of the wand to be successful. You’ll have special powers too. They only be used for a good cause.

      • 148 Professor VJ Duke November 24, 2014 at 13:26

        What powers haveth I?

      • 149 Ms. Vee November 24, 2014 at 23:02

        power to heal the sick, feed the less fortunate, and you’ll have the ability to fly. :)

      • 150 Professor VJ Duke November 25, 2014 at 14:03

        With wings?

      • 151 Ms. Vee November 25, 2014 at 14:38

        Yes. Hidden inside your rib-cage.

      • 152 Professor VJ Duke November 25, 2014 at 20:45

        Goodness me. It hurts, I’ll bet, huh?

      • 153 Ms. Vee November 25, 2014 at 22:02

        Yes. It does, really bad, but it’s worth it.

      • 154 Professor VJ Duke November 26, 2014 at 14:00

        Can I get rid of it now?

      • 155 Ms. Vee November 26, 2014 at 16:30

        Not yet. No pain;no gain. You’ll be okay. Can’t you feel the power?

      • 156 Professor VJ Duke November 26, 2014 at 20:33

        Not yet…will I soon?

      • 157 Ms. Vee November 26, 2014 at 20:34

        Yes not to worry. You can’t be impatient! It’s a slow process.

      • 158 Professor VJ Duke November 26, 2014 at 20:49

        Rats.

      • 159 Ms. Vee November 26, 2014 at 21:17

        LOL, soon Professor…soon. :)

      • 160 Professor VJ Duke November 30, 2014 at 19:42

        *grumbles*

      • 161 Ms. Vee November 30, 2014 at 20:39

        LOL. No pouting allowed!

      • 162 Professor VJ Duke December 2, 2014 at 19:56

        But I must needs do it!

      • 163 Ms. Vee December 2, 2014 at 20:22

        If you insist. You must be spoiled. :)

      • 164 Professor VJ Duke December 3, 2014 at 15:38

        *laughs* Am I?

      • 165 Ms. Vee December 3, 2014 at 17:51

        I think so…or you’re just stubborn as heck!

      • 166 Professor VJ Duke December 4, 2014 at 18:57

        Stubborn…I like that.

      • 167 Ms. Vee December 4, 2014 at 19:26

        LOL. So it must be true!

      • 168 Professor VJ Duke December 6, 2014 at 19:49

        Yes!

      • 169 Ms. Vee December 6, 2014 at 19:50

        I knew it! :)

      • 170 Professor VJ Duke December 6, 2014 at 20:08

        NO you didn’t!

      • 171 Ms. Vee December 6, 2014 at 20:14

        Yes I did! You told on yourself, and didn’t realize it. Ha ha.

  12. 172 Simply Skeptical October 28, 2014 at 21:40

    This is vague Professor! Spit it out. Is there an underlying message here? If so, I know it would only be a positive one. Although, I’m not sure a trip to Mars would qualify (for positive that is). Be careful!

    • 173 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2014 at 13:27

      Well, there was. But I’m deciding against telling it! Sorry.

      • 174 Simply Skeptical October 30, 2014 at 01:44

        Not to be sorry Professor! Your creativity and mysteriousness is so intrigueing. Keep it up pleeease!

      • 175 Professor VJ Duke October 30, 2014 at 13:27

        I’m just a dull professor; sorta like a toad.

  13. 176 Debbie October 28, 2014 at 20:12

    What kind of horrid-looking flower is that, Professor? Surely I’ve never seen anything quite like it!

    So you’re going to Mars? How did you decide on that? Sounds like a fascinating trip — do pack a camera, for I’m interested in seeing the scenery (and the Martians, of course!)

    • 177 Professor VJ Duke October 28, 2014 at 20:22

      It’s a carrion flower! Supposed to smell like a corpse. Lovely. Would you like some?

      I will take many pictures…I bet it will be green, too.

  14. 178 Julie Harris October 28, 2014 at 18:36

    Looking forward to reading about your trip to Mars!

    • 179 Professor VJ Duke October 28, 2014 at 20:20

      Yes! I’ll fight some apes, don’t you know.

  15. 180 Lady Cheetah October 28, 2014 at 18:18

    How rude of you to not invite us to go to Mars along with you. I declare….

    • 181 Professor VJ Duke October 28, 2014 at 20:20

      Sounding just a bit Mr. R-ish…but would you want to come? Maybe it’s a good place to send others…like politicians.

      • 182 Lady Cheetah October 28, 2014 at 21:20

        I was going to add “rude and crude” but that would have been too obvious.
        Well, should you decide to send politicians, be sure to have Daddy Salami greet them and grant them no way to return.

      • 183 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2014 at 13:27

        I’m sure that would make Ruber rather happy as well. I mean, he wouldn’t have to return home and find DS sitting in the rocking chair.

  16. 184 LadyPinkRose October 28, 2014 at 14:56

    Ya furgot somethin’ on that ticket to Mars. I don’t see LadyP. Hmmm …. Or could it be LadyP is already on Mars? Could be could be. Somewhere in the ethers, LadyP

    • 185 Professor VJ Duke October 28, 2014 at 20:20

      That’s possible. Are you a white ape, LadyP? They live on Mars.

      • 186 LadyPinkRose October 28, 2014 at 22:17

        Interesting you should ask. I could be then maybe again I am not. Are you? A white ape that is? Why else would you want to go to Mars?

      • 187 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2014 at 13:28

        Of course not. They have fangs and only one eye!

      • 188 LadyPinkRose October 29, 2014 at 15:18

        They do? That’s news to me.

      • 189 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2014 at 20:50

        Well, what do you make of it?

      • 190 LadyPinkRose October 30, 2014 at 00:35

        Let me see. You say these um gee, wild assertations about Mars and apes, ask me if I am an ape, which I didn’t say one way or another, and let me get this right. You have a ticket to Mars to which I conclude that you are made of red dust. That is what I make out of all this. En tu?

      • 191 Professor VJ Duke October 30, 2014 at 13:26

        Red dust…yes! How did you know?

      • 192 LadyPinkRose October 30, 2014 at 14:33

        I’ve been to Mars.

      • 193 Professor VJ Duke October 30, 2014 at 22:08

        How was it?

      • 194 LadyPinkRose October 30, 2014 at 22:37

        Dry and dusty. I got very thirsty.

      • 195 Professor VJ Duke October 31, 2014 at 18:42

        Did you get red sand in your ears?

      • 196 LadyPinkRose October 31, 2014 at 20:13

        Yes I did and carrots began to grow. Can you believe it?

      • 197 Professor VJ Duke November 1, 2014 at 17:24

        Umm…I do!

      • 198 LadyPinkRose November 1, 2014 at 18:20

        Yet how is it possible you know? There is only one way that I know of and that is you have been to Mars too!

      • 199 Professor VJ Duke November 2, 2014 at 23:49

        And what is that way?

      • 200 LadyPinkRose November 3, 2014 at 02:00

        Sorry, LadyP is brain dead from being in the editing room too long. Oopsie.

      • 201 Professor VJ Duke November 3, 2014 at 15:39

        The editing room can be severe, I know.

      • 202 LadyPinkRose November 3, 2014 at 15:40

        Mind numbing …..

      • 203 Professor VJ Duke November 3, 2014 at 15:45

        And fun.

      • 204 LadyPinkRose November 3, 2014 at 20:23

        Yes that too. I feel like a kid most times I am in there. LOL

      • 205 Professor VJ Duke November 3, 2014 at 21:12

        Just like the PL!

      • 206 LadyPinkRose November 3, 2014 at 21:39

        Yep! That’s why I LOVE the PL. I’m just a BIG KID.

      • 207 Professor VJ Duke November 4, 2014 at 14:18

        *laughs* You sure are! One that likes egg nog.

      • 208 LadyPinkRose November 4, 2014 at 14:45

        But of course! I also get a mustache when I drink egg nog!

      • 209 Professor VJ Duke November 5, 2014 at 13:31

        Now that’s not ladylike!

      • 210 LadyPinkRose November 5, 2014 at 15:14

        Why not? I’m a kid remember? I lick it off! Yum YUM!

      • 211 Professor VJ Duke November 5, 2014 at 21:19

        Good point!

  17. 212 Jackie October 28, 2014 at 14:54

    Intriguing!

    • 213 Professor VJ Duke October 28, 2014 at 20:19

      And scary, you must admit!

      • 214 Jackie October 28, 2014 at 21:22

        Oh yes! Absolutely!

      • 215 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2014 at 13:27

        *laughs*

  18. 216 FictionFan October 28, 2014 at 14:29

    1) The Professor has fallen in love with Amelia and eloped.
    2) The Professor has developed a love for ballroom dancing and is in training for the next series of Strictly.
    3) NASA have asked the Professor to pilot the space-ship to Mars and he’s practicising putting on the space-suit.
    4) The Professor has realised it’s only 7 months till Wimbledon and is practicising his serve (and working on his biceps *swoons*).

    I’m pretty sure one of the above is the correct answer, but which?

    • 217 Professor VJ Duke October 28, 2014 at 20:19

      *laughing* Now wait a moment!

      1. Don’t I hate that girl?
      2. What’s Strictly?
      3. Just practicing with the suit? What about piloting the dadblame thing?
      4. Yeah! I wish I could do that…but you’ve got to be professional, don’t you.

      Well…it’s sorta…all…wrong. It’s scarier.

      • 218 Susan P October 28, 2014 at 22:56

        You’re marrying Amelia? I knew it. All of the protests were just smoke screens.

      • 219 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2014 at 13:29

        I am not! How could I do that?

      • 220 Susan P October 29, 2014 at 14:19

        I’m sure that the PL has a Justice of the Peace – I thought it might be DS.

      • 221 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2014 at 20:45

        Maybe Fats Henry?

      • 222 Susan P October 29, 2014 at 22:40

        Okay. I’m easy to please.

      • 223 Professor VJ Duke October 30, 2014 at 13:17

        Or this professor.

      • 224 Susan P October 30, 2014 at 13:45

        Ruber would eat you alive.

      • 225 Professor VJ Duke October 30, 2014 at 22:02

        Would not neither!

      • 226 Susan P October 30, 2014 at 23:02

        Either that, or he’d push you over the cliff.

      • 227 Professor VJ Duke October 31, 2014 at 18:44

        He’s nicer than that, I thought.

      • 228 Susan P October 31, 2014 at 23:59

        No, he really isn’t. That kind of thinking could lead to a world of hurt.

      • 229 Professor VJ Duke November 1, 2014 at 17:30

        You must have tea with him, I think.

      • 230 Susan P November 1, 2014 at 20:10

        Not on your tin-type, sir.

      • 231 Professor VJ Duke November 2, 2014 at 23:53

        It’s the only thing that may have a chance of repairing the friendship.

      • 232 FictionFan October 28, 2014 at 23:24

        1) There’s a fine line between love and hate when it comes to matters of romance.
        2) Forgot you Yankees always have to change the name when you steal an idea – Dancing with the Stars.
        3) What?!? You mean you don’t know how to do that already?? Does NASA know? *checks out weather conditions on Venus*
        4) Actually it’s open, I believe – so amateurs can play too. if their biceps are big enough…

        Well, OK then…

        5) The Professor has challenged Mr R to a duel and is preparing us all for the worst.
        6) The Professor has turned into the Cheshire Cat and soon there will be nothing left of him but his smile.
        7) The Professor has taken up bungee jumping but has run out of elastic.
        8) I give up!

      • 233 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2014 at 13:35

        1. Yeah…that’s why it’s best to stay away from Romance. And that is also why, Darby murderers Lizio later on in their relationship.
        2. You know, I’ve never watched that show. (But your name for it is awful, madam!)
        3. *laughs* You’re coming, right?
        4. But I wouldn’t last long, sadly enough.

        #6 sounds about right. Actually, that is right.

      • 234 FictionFan October 29, 2014 at 15:54

        Oh! I… actually, I can’t think of anything to say. I hope it’s not true though.

      • 235 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2014 at 20:53

        *cries about elephants*

      • 236 FictionFan October 29, 2014 at 22:53

        It’s most odd. Psychologically, I mean. Perhaps that great thinker Shnoddy could help explain it. On the one hand, I am very, very, very, very, very, very fond of the Professor. And yet, on the other hand, sometimes I get an almost overwhelming desire to drop him into a large vat of blancmange. Strange, isn’t it?

      • 237 Professor VJ Duke October 30, 2014 at 13:22

        *laughs* I think you were going to say acid… Well…maybe that’s because…you’re a girl.

      • 238 FictionFan October 30, 2014 at 17:21

        Was not!! That’d be far too quick… (Though I admit my first thought was ‘hit him with a brick’ – but I feared the entire PF might rise up and rend me limb from limb if I said that…)

        I am, aren’t I? *preens girlishly*

      • 239 Professor VJ Duke October 30, 2014 at 22:15

        *shocked face and maybe laughs* Well! *pulls cloak about him* What horridness. Though, they probably wouldn’t.

        You sure are! And girls are given to sudden mood changes like that.

      • 240 FictionFan October 31, 2014 at 02:07

        Bet they would! Bet they’d throw me in a vat of… of… something unspeakably yucketh!

        *smiles* *pouts* *cries* *giggles* *growls* *laughs*

      • 241 Professor VJ Duke October 31, 2014 at 18:51

        Maybe tar?

        *laughs* Girls are wonders.

  19. 242 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister October 28, 2014 at 13:57

    Looking forward to learning more about the PL. Best of luck with the Mars thing, Duke.

    • 243 Professor VJ Duke October 28, 2014 at 20:16

      (They just took my name.) You say that now…but…we’re nervous…

      • 244 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister October 29, 2014 at 04:06

        (Tell me… who, what, when, where, why) You’re always nervous. Y’all are amazing. Nothing to fear. You’re perfect just as you are, and remember it is easy to cheer you on, because I know your heart. When the heart is in the right place nothing fails. *figures she’s being far too sweet for some dadblamery you have in store for us*

      • 245 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2014 at 13:38

        No, actually…you’re not. You helped lots! See…I was going to reveal who I was and what I was about. But I’m not sure I should. It’s such dadblamery.

      • 246 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister October 29, 2014 at 19:58

        I’m glad I helped in some way. What is stopping you? What is your fear?

      • 247 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2014 at 21:00

        It’s just…not..well…it might ruin P.VJ.

      • 248 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister October 30, 2014 at 03:02

        If you aren’t ready for the ruination of P.VJ, then don’t do it. Why would it ruin? The man behind the curtain is good enough, you know, if that’s your fear. If it will ruin what you’re working towards, then don’t do it. If you love being anonymous, then keep it as is, Duke. I wonder why now all the sudden (it seems) there is such pressure on you to do it. If you are afraid no one will look at you the same or return to your interactions as normal, then maybe they don’t need to be such a priority in your decision making. Anyway, just some ramblings… *hugs*

      • 249 Professor VJ Duke October 30, 2014 at 13:30

        Audith, you’re so wise, and right. It’s all Nick’s fault! I think one of these days I’ll have to tell, though, you know.

      • 250 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister October 30, 2014 at 20:18

        Nick’s fault? I suppose I need to know why he wants to reveal. I have a feeling that he knows what he’s talking about. Trust him. He wants what’s best for you, you see. Plus, you’ve already said you were going to…backtracking now, I see. You’re setting us up for some fun on Thursday, I’m sure. I look forward to your shinanigans. Dadblame it. I always fall for your initial “concerns”. I may never learn. *reversing the car*

      • 251 Professor VJ Duke October 30, 2014 at 22:18

        Hey! That’s not necessarily true. But, yeah, something is in the works. You’re very wise. But it’s not like you think.

      • 252 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister October 31, 2014 at 04:16

        Every time you call me wise I see myself as an owl wearing horrible wire rimmed glasses.

      • 253 Professor VJ Duke October 31, 2014 at 18:53

        Wire rimmed glasses are cool.

      • 254 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister October 31, 2014 at 20:06

        Not the ones I see myself wearing.

      • 255 Professor VJ Duke November 1, 2014 at 17:23

        Yeah, they wouldn’t work on me either.

      • 256 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister November 3, 2014 at 00:25

        You don’t have to wear them, I bet.

      • 257 Professor VJ Duke November 3, 2014 at 15:36

        No, I’m actually a bit nearsighted.

      • 258 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister November 3, 2014 at 22:13

        I think everyone is, ya know.

      • 259 Professor VJ Duke November 4, 2014 at 14:19

        Really? You could be right.

      • 260 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister November 4, 2014 at 20:20

        I was today. Mark the calendar, Duke.

      • 261 Professor VJ Duke November 5, 2014 at 13:41

        You know, I don’t have one?

      • 262 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister November 5, 2014 at 15:00

        Get one!

  20. 263 Bethy October 28, 2014 at 13:51

    You know…I’ve bruised both big toes this week for reals. Something in the air? And my focus is ALWAYS redirected by shiny things.

    • 264 Professor VJ Duke October 28, 2014 at 20:16

      Like rubies? No! How did the bruising happen?

      • 265 Bethy October 28, 2014 at 20:25

        Rubies are the best because they are RED!

        Well…I was clumsy is the short story.
        The longer one is I stubbed my toe on some weights the I neglected to put away properly. Then I was getting something out of the freezer and some meat just randomly jumped out and landed on my other toe.

      • 266 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2014 at 13:24

        Yes! That’s the truth there.

        Oh dear. Well, the meat falling wasn’t your fault.

      • 267 Bethy October 29, 2014 at 19:23

        Well it could have been. Maybe my elbow shifted something that it shouldn’t have. Besides I am told that everything in the fridge and freezer is my fault so if it isn’t organized and something falls out I am to blame.

      • 268 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2014 at 20:55

        *laughing* Does Princess say that?

      • 269 Bethy October 31, 2014 at 13:03

        Nope. It’s an unspoken belief at my house. I fortunately (or unfortunately?) have the kind of memory that can visualize where things were the last time I saw them (most of the time it works anyway) so I just get asked that stuff.

      • 270 Professor VJ Duke October 31, 2014 at 18:55

        *laughs* I’d say that’s fortunate. I think, at least.

    • 271 Susan P October 28, 2014 at 22:55

      Ouch.

        Very true statement.

    You’re going to Mars? Without me?? Professor!

    I am looking forward to the scariness. I hope whatever metaphorically bit your toe is dealt with forthwith! What on earth is that flower? The lady next to it is wearing a smashing vest.

      *laughs then shocked face* It’s…FEF’s fault! I bet there’s…aliens up there! Would you be okay with that?

      That flower is a carrion flower! Supposedly it smells like a corpse. Lovely, isn’t it? A vest…she needs a tie.

      • 275 PorterGirl October 29, 2014 at 08:15

        I think aliens and I should get on rather well, you know. As long as they don’t try to eat me. Or probe me. Then I might get a little ticked off.

        Smells like a corpse? Goodness! No wonder she has that mask on. A bow tie would do nicely, I think.

        *laughing* And you’d beat them all with your baton, so they’d better be scared!

        Good point. I like bow ties…maybe better than ties.

      • 277 PorterGirl October 29, 2014 at 14:15

        I certainly would beat them! But I would try to make friends first. But if they don’t want to be friends, they will be beaten ahaha!

        A bow tie is a difficult thing to carry off, but when a chap (or chapess) does, it is a sight to behold. A nice bright one should do.

        Sounds like the perfect plan of action to this professor!

        That’s a good point. Like a red one.

      • 279 PorterGirl October 29, 2014 at 22:03

        My plans are always perfect. Well, they always involve action.

        Red is an excellent choice.

      • 280 Professor VJ Duke October 30, 2014 at 13:14

        And action is important to any plan, I’d say.


Say something...anything...O Punchy Family!
