The Professor Is Not Dead; Nor Doth He Sleep

I do apologize for my absence.

You see, this professor has been caught up in a Christmas Tornado.

Christmas Tornado.

Christmas Tornado.

Unknown-1

Aftermath of Christmas Tornado.

Anyways, and some, here’s the moral of this post:

Don’t get caught in a Christmas Tornado.

Stay safe, drink thirsty, drive responsibly, eat when you’re hungry, and eat lots of cookies.

    Oh dear Professor,

    I hope you get out that Christmas tornado alive and unscathed!

      Well, unless it sucks me up, I should be okay.

  2. 3 Apricots and Cream December 12, 2015 at 16:32

    Amen to the last statement!! :D

    • 4 Professor VJ Duke December 13, 2015 at 20:23

      Cora!!!!!! For sure. Make sure to have lots of cherry-dot cookies. And yes, they exist.

  3. 5 L. Marie December 11, 2015 at 14:12

    What about a Christmas hurricane or blizzard?
    Anyway, glad you survived that. And how astute of desertdweller29 to find that Star Wars video. I suspect a certain Professor will attend the debut of the new Star Wars movie (like many of us will).

    • 6 Professor VJ Duke December 13, 2015 at 20:14

      Yes, that makes more sense, huh?

      That’s what I’ve been up to! I want to, for sure. I’m a Sith, after all. I know you’ll be there!

  4. 7 Simply Skeptical December 11, 2015 at 00:55

    Good Advise Cookies yummmm

    • 8 Professor VJ Duke December 11, 2015 at 03:26

      No cookies unless you toll the bell!

  5. 9 Sonya Solomonovich December 10, 2015 at 22:41

    The Christmas tornado looks cute! :)

    • 10 Professor VJ Duke December 11, 2015 at 03:26

      Now, now, Sonya, how can a tornado be cute? Just like, how can an orc professor be cute?

      • 11 Sonya Solomonovich December 16, 2015 at 09:32

        When it’s wearing a Santa Claus hat, it’s cute. Same goes for the orc professor. Also an orc professor holding a kitten would be cute :D

      • 12 Professor VJ Duke December 17, 2015 at 15:26

        *laughs* But that’s because the kitten is cute only, see.

  6. 13 Haylee December 10, 2015 at 20:26

    Okay, so I know I may have made a hasty comment regarding your incorrect ‘team’ selection but I’m certainly glad you’re not dead. Christmas and a tornado… I’d rather tackle the twister any day. Perhaps I should listen more to that guitar chap whilst you’re busy in Oz, or wherever the wind blew you – that little video has fed into all my geeky fandom notions. Loved it! :)

    • 14 Professor VJ Duke December 11, 2015 at 03:25

      *laughs* See, here’s the thing: a lion would get sucked up into a Christmas tornado. But a bear? Not a chance. Why, he dig his claws into the turf and hold on tight.

      So, you think I captured the SW stuff good enough? That music is just too epic. I’m looking forward to the new SW, you should know.

      • 15 Haylee December 11, 2015 at 07:22

        A lion would still be more agile and outrun both bear and twister. Unless it was during one of their 22 hours of sleeping.

        I think John Williams would be proud! It is epic, but yours was understated cool. And I’m glad you’re excited, the world should be excited about SW! I am, can you tell?! Already have my opening night tickets and can’t wait for that first bar of music to blast out the speakers. I might even go all out and twist some bagels into my hair…

      • 16 Professor VJ Duke December 13, 2015 at 20:08

        *laughing* See, a bear wouldn’t have to run. That makes him more powerful. Me, I’d just get sucked right into a tornado. That’s what would happen. I might sing a turn or two, before getting kicked out.

        Well thanks muchly, Haylee!! I can tell! See, opening night is going to be packed, so I planned to wait a bit. Let’s hope Mace Windu comes back into it. Let’s hope. *laughing* That’d be something!

      • 17 Haylee December 13, 2015 at 21:26

        I’m kind of looking forward to it being packed, although I have been to the movies a couple of times in the States and your audiences are wild! I’d be going round shushing everyone so I could watch! So I get why waiting is a good option. Didn’t Mace get kicked out a window? As long as they don’t revive Jar Jar I think all will be good! (Don’t tell anyone I secretly liked him!)

      • 18 Professor VJ Duke December 15, 2015 at 19:54

        Really? See, that’s Americans. Always ruining each others’ enjoyment. Kinda. Mace! yes…but doesn’t that mean he can still be alive? You know what, why don’t you secretly videotape it when you see it. Then send it to me, please. (I liked him too!)

      • 19 Haylee December 15, 2015 at 20:34

        Shiver me timbers, I be no pirate sir! (that was my best impression 😔) Not to say I’ve never entered into a dodgy download but as someone who used to run a cinema, I can’t be out wielding my camcorder! Besides, I’m short. You’d only get the backs of heads! So patience, you’ll have to wait. I promise not to mention spoilers, especially if Mace turns up!

      • 20 Professor VJ Duke December 17, 2015 at 15:23

        That’s a great pirate impersonation! Better than mine: Arghh. Okay, if you must! But still, you can give me a few spoilers. If Mace comes back I will dance.

      • 21 Haylee December 17, 2015 at 22:31

        There are not enough superlatives to describe how brilliant it was! No spoilers, all the dancing. Go see it as soon as you can!!

      • 22 Professor VJ Duke December 18, 2015 at 15:23

        But was Mace in it?

      • 23 Haylee December 18, 2015 at 15:34

        No spoilers!! Ooh, aren’t you impatient? I feel with either response you will be let down so I’m staying quiet!

      • 24 Professor VJ Duke December 21, 2015 at 14:07

        You know, I tried to get a few guitar buddies to tell me if the Sith died at the end. They wouldn’t! This is no fair.

  7. 25 John W. Howell December 10, 2015 at 19:58

    Good advice all way around.

    • 26 Professor VJ Duke December 11, 2015 at 03:24

      That right there is the best advice on they internet for tornados.

      • 27 John W. Howell December 11, 2015 at 14:14

        I like to avoid Christmas tornados

      • 28 Professor VJ Duke December 13, 2015 at 20:15

        They always run right into me.

      • 29 John W. Howell December 13, 2015 at 20:47

        And you into them.

      • 30 Professor VJ Duke December 15, 2015 at 19:53

        Now, now. I do try to avoid them as best as I can.

      • 31 John W. Howell December 15, 2015 at 20:08

        Good idea.

      • 32 Professor VJ Duke December 17, 2015 at 15:20

        I thought so at first. But now they just come for me. Like sharks for eels.

      • 33 John W. Howell December 17, 2015 at 21:40

        I have never seen sharks go after eels.

      • 34 Professor VJ Duke December 18, 2015 at 15:22

        Not even the boomerang shark?

      • 35 John W. Howell December 18, 2015 at 23:23

        Huh? No not even a boomerang shark.

      • 36 Professor VJ Duke December 21, 2015 at 14:15

        I mean the hammerhead!

      • 37 John W. Howell December 21, 2015 at 18:02

        Oh. No not even a hammerhead

      • 38 Professor VJ Duke December 22, 2015 at 15:37

        Hmm. Are you sure?

      • 39 John W. Howell December 22, 2015 at 17:51

        Yup

  8. 40 FictionFan December 10, 2015 at 19:38

    Glad you’re not dead! *guffaws at the notion of the Professor having a ‘schedule’*

    • 41 Professor VJ Duke December 11, 2015 at 03:24

      *laughs* Hurtful, madam! I have a sort of schedule, but you might not think it looks like a schedule. Also, I can multitask, the sudden.

      • 42 FictionFan December 11, 2015 at 17:06

        No, you can’t!! Men can’t multitask!! Why, they can barely task!! *runs off, giggling*

      • 43 Professor VJ Duke December 13, 2015 at 20:19

        Oh, I run so many tasks you wouldn’t believe it! I task there, I task there, I task everywhere.

  9. 44 Lady Dunamis December 10, 2015 at 18:36

    Drink thirsty? You tickle me with these phrases…. 😆

    • 45 Professor VJ Duke December 11, 2015 at 03:21

      Well, don’t you always drink when thirsty?

  10. 46 desertdweller29 December 10, 2015 at 16:05

    Ah-hah! I now have my answer as to where you’ve been! I should have known it was the Christmas tornado! Those tornados have been known to kill people. Do be careful, sir. I’m now off to be serenaded by a wonderful musician on YouTube:

    • 47 Professor VJ Duke December 11, 2015 at 03:15

      Yup! I’m quite guilty. What do you think? Did I do SW justice? The music is just so awesome.

      • 48 desertdweller29 December 11, 2015 at 04:13

        You brought SW to church, I say! Loved it!!!

      • 49 Professor VJ Duke December 13, 2015 at 19:59

        Right to the pews!

  11. 50 Heartafire December 10, 2015 at 15:38

    What doth you do? Whatever it be, enjoy!

    • 51 Professor VJ Duke December 11, 2015 at 03:14

      So, I’m actually making a movie, can you believe.

      • 52 walt walker December 11, 2015 at 04:06

        Now, you know you’re not allowed to drop a bombshell like that. That’s not fair. You must needs expound, the sudden.

      • 53 Professor VJ Duke December 13, 2015 at 19:58

        I’m such an unfair chap, true. But…it’s nothing to exciting. Just a music video, see. Nutcracker, see further.

      • 54 Heartafire December 11, 2015 at 14:08

        get out!!! for real?? tell, tell….I am waiting with somekind of breath here.

      • 55 Professor VJ Duke December 13, 2015 at 20:12

        Oh nothing too exciting, just a music vid, see.

      • 56 Heartafire December 13, 2015 at 23:17

        That’s really super! Well deserved. I hope you have a blast

      • 57 Professor VJ Duke December 15, 2015 at 19:57

        It’ll be fun, I think. It’s the nutcracker, see.

      • 58 Heartafire December 15, 2015 at 21:00

        for real? I love the nutcracker…will I get to see it?

      • 59 Professor VJ Duke December 17, 2015 at 15:23

        For real! Yes, I’ll post it here as soon as it’s finished. Just the Russian Dance, you know.

      • 60 Heartafire December 17, 2015 at 15:40

        Can’t wait, but will! Congratulations!

      • 61 Professor VJ Duke December 18, 2015 at 15:10

        I do hope you dig it…

      • 62 Heartafire December 18, 2015 at 15:11

        I know I will! Claps!

      • 63 Professor VJ Duke December 18, 2015 at 15:25

        Okay, just posting it soon here…

      • 64 Heartafire December 18, 2015 at 17:15

        Love, love it! Very beautiful video and amazing music by the professor! Oatmeal is the best huh?

      • 65 Professor VJ Duke December 21, 2015 at 14:10

        Aw, thanks, Hollie! Really appreciate that. The Russian Dance was so fun to do. Just listen to all those guitars! It is the very best, oatmeal is.

      • 66 Heartafire December 21, 2015 at 15:04

        Great job Professor! I enjoyed this tremendously! You’re the best.

      • 67 Professor VJ Duke December 22, 2015 at 15:33

        Nah. I’m just the professorest, really. Thanks bunches, Hollie!!

      • 68 Heartafire December 22, 2015 at 16:37

        It is my pleasure! You did good.

      • 69 Professor VJ Duke December 23, 2015 at 16:28

        *smiles proudly*

  12. 70 Debbie December 10, 2015 at 15:31

    Everybody’s entitled to a bit of slack at this time of year, Professor. Especially musicians, who are called upon more often to showcase their talents! Don’t let it trouble you. Schedules fly out the window (probably with that Christmas tornado!) as we tend to the necessities of the season. Stay safe and post when you can. And while you’re at it, batten down the hatches!!

    • 71 Professor VJ Duke December 11, 2015 at 03:14

      Quite right, Debbie! Do you suppose I might be able to suck the whole world into a tornado?

  13. 72 walt walker December 10, 2015 at 15:08

    I prefer to eat potato chips. Even at Christmas. Even as tornados approach.

    • 73 Lady Dunamis December 10, 2015 at 18:34

      My kinda guy!

    • 74 Professor VJ Duke December 11, 2015 at 03:14

      Potato chips. Barbecue or Jalapeno?

      • 75 walt walker December 11, 2015 at 04:03

        Peppermint.

      • 76 Professor VJ Duke December 13, 2015 at 19:52

        Peppermint? No wonder you have stomach aches, my man.

  14. 77 PorterGirl December 10, 2015 at 14:49

    It is a crazy time. Your advice is very good and I might even pay attention to bits of it. Although I insist on eating both when hungry and not hungry.

    • 78 Professor VJ Duke December 11, 2015 at 03:13

      Only bits of it?! Goodness, you!

      Well, that’s the thing. Sometimes it’s fun to eat when you’re not hungry.

      • 79 PorterGirl December 11, 2015 at 09:03

        I am particularly naughty, I think. Eating is always fun I say!

      • 80 Professor VJ Duke December 13, 2015 at 20:09

        Naughty eating is the best, I find.

  15. 81 Susan P December 10, 2015 at 14:43

    What? Who has been writing your story all this time you have been disappeared? I feel betrayed. Again. *weeps and wailing*

    • 82 Professor VJ Duke December 11, 2015 at 03:12

      Oh no! Now why do you feel that way, madam?

      • 83 Susan P December 11, 2015 at 11:39

        Because.https://widgets.wp.com/notifications/2190982557#

      • 84 Professor VJ Duke December 13, 2015 at 20:11

        It didn’t load for me, I fear.

  16. 85 Nicholas Warren--MPS staff member December 10, 2015 at 14:40

    I think with that title you soon may be dead….

    • 86 Susan P December 10, 2015 at 14:44

      I thought the same.

      • 87 Professor VJ Duke December 11, 2015 at 03:12

        You did not! *holds Susan’s ears*

      • 88 Susan P December 11, 2015 at 11:39

        Calls in Dumbo the flying elephant

      • 89 Professor VJ Duke December 13, 2015 at 20:11

        Oh no. He can’t fly for reals!

      • 90 Susan P December 16, 2015 at 11:34

        Oh and you haven’t been stomped on yet?

      • 91 Professor VJ Duke December 17, 2015 at 15:29

        I’m, the sudden, unstompable.

      • 92 Susan P December 17, 2015 at 17:31

        Who have you been trafficking with?

      • 93 Professor VJ Duke December 18, 2015 at 15:16

        The worst meanies ever!!

    • 94 Lady Dunamis December 10, 2015 at 18:35

      And he will write a script to raise himself back from the dead.

      • 95 Professor VJ Duke December 11, 2015 at 03:21

        It’d be a good script, too.

    • 96 Professor VJ Duke December 11, 2015 at 03:11

      I’m still alive!
