Rocket Jones’ Great Random Google Junket

Looks like it's either feast or famine. Today it’s a feast. Thank you thank you thank you.

On today’s menu:

Phogiston, with cream of Pixy Misa
Centrifugal, with Jennifer on the half shell
Period, ala Victor the younger

Apocolocynposis, with dill and just a hint of John
Prosaic, lightly tossed with balsamic vinegarette and Daniel
Huslanka, grilled and served with The Meatriarch

Reciprocity, sounds deliciously LeeAnn, doesn't it?
Fatuous, rich and smooth, pure Serenity
Illustrious, traditional, yet Susie

From the bar
Bier, imported or domestic (we ID Mookie)
Saliva, by the glass, magnum, or Tuning Spork

Bon Apetit!

phogiston + centrifugal
Gnomish weaponry. Who didn’t see that one coming?

And, The Encyclopedia of World History tells of the 1673 theories of phlogiston and centrifugal motion, as well as the invention of the pendulum clock.

period + apocolocyntosis
Sorry John, I think the original was misspelled although it looks like it was intentional. Google corrected it and we got hits! Well, what we got was multiple hits about The Satyricon by Seneca the Apocolocyntosis, a book about a period in Roman history.

prosaic + bier
The Beer Advocate and a review of Samuel Adams Weiss Bier. These slug puppies want you to subscribe in order to get full access to their site. Translation: pay for their beer. Nice scam guys, but I’ll do my own research. Reading some of the reviews is creepy because these guys aren’t just describing a beer as much as autopsying their best friend.

On a happier note, this newspaper article describes a person who organizes the funeral of your dreams for you. Me? I wanna watch mine from the balcony. With a pellet gun.

saliva + reciprocity
Slicking one finger with his saliva, Riker carefully inserted just the tip into Spock's anus.” Star Trek Porn, entitled Reciprocity. First on the list too. No link, because if it don’t have T’Pau getting down, I don’t wanna read it.

Farther down the list is a site about some pagan religion and the positive aspects of holy saliva.

Fess up, A. I figured out enough to know that this is a foreign word and has something to do with yogurt. Sour milk? There were hits in Italian, German, Polish, and some slavic language. Very very sly.

fatuous + illustrious
The first hit is a rambling screed against Arafat and the 9/11 hijackers. Here’s the link, although I don’t think it worth wasting time on.

Wild Wales: Its people, language and scenery. An online book of mild interest to me, you might find it more or less so.

Ahhh, history. The Great Historic Families of Scotland. Scroll down for lots more information. Now this is stuff I can get into.

We’ll finish up with a moonbat posting. Decline of the West, by George Szamuely. It’s dated from 2000 though, so I have no idea what else he’s done or is currently up to. I don’t care enough to check.

So that’s everything this time except for one special set of submitted words. Next time we’ll have the special Stevie edition of the Random Google Junket. Make sure you tighten your seatbelts for that one, because it could be an interesting ride. With any luck that is.

Again my thanks to everyone who suggested a word. Do it again. Don’t make me beg because you never know, we both might like it.

LOL at T.S.! My contribution is vainglory.

Actually, Trivia: "Apocolocynposis" means fear of turning into a pumpkin. Now honestly. Have you ever known anyone who was afraid of turning into a pumpkin? Me neither!

And who would fear turning into a pumpkin? Revel in it!

Yes, it's a word. I own two of 'em.

Huslanka is a type of yogurt. It tastes like Kaffir but is more solid.

A friend got me hooked on it. I can find very few references to it on the net - that's why I put it there.

Also I can only find one store in Toronto that carries it.

This is the best idea for a link fest I have ever seen in the 'sphere.

My new word is: Aberrant
