    Cool, so Jamie Jones espouses Objectivist philosophies, much like J. Greenteeth, and myself.

    Would the lakes fill the void inside of Margo? By golly, not only would they fill every void, but even cause every cell in her body to swell like a balloon.

    Have a good break, Kory, enjoy the mountains and the fresh air!

    Margo, be very wary of that sly seducer! Jamie is a sophist of the first rank, and a rank sophist first!

    Margo: “I’ve heard better pick-up lines, but you’re a better-looking date than Trullus. How are you on kissing?”

    She’s making the wine glass “sing”. Hee hee, always have to do that, even when facing giant talking sturgeons accessorized with lampreys.

    Maybe if he – shaved – first… never mind, he’d still have fish lips…
    Don’t drink too much wine, Margo!

    “I was minding my own business”, said Jamie Jones, “when a huge book sank to the lake floor in front of me. I can barely remember the title—‘Atlas…Shook?’ No, no, it was ‘Atlas Shrugged’…That John Galt was a marvel—I could see in him a younger, less piscine me…”

    I don’t think that’s the kind of filling Margo has in mind.. I know way too many people who have given up searching the mysteries of their own being for materialistic gratification. That search is difficult and wearying, but still worthwhile in my experience.

    I’m a fan of Abraham Maslow, not Ayn Rand, and I get great enjoyment in searching for the miracle in the grain of sand. True selflessness is found in the search for the spiritual.and the legacy one leaves for others.

    I don’t accept the notion that all seeking of satisfaction is selfish, because identity isn’t restricted to self, but exists in an existential and often painful dynamic with communities on many levels. What is critical is the decision to determine which direction is most worthwhile for each of us.

    Jaime Jones is one lonely guy – his philosophy of life forces him to choose between companionship and control, shutting out the rest of the world in the process. Watch out, Margo!

    Lucius has that pendant…I wonder if he is using it while the good Captain is distracted? This dinner scene could get interesting…

    Kory, have a great holiday! Rest up, have fun and don’t worry about us!

    Told you this is a recruitment drive and Margo is front and center. If she says yes the next time she wakes up she will be bodily changed and can never leave the Great Lakes. Please say no, Margo! NO!!!

    Didn’t touch his food or wine. Wonder how long it will take for Margo to wake up?

    Kory’s on vacation this week mountain climbing. The strip will start up again when he gets back.
