    Rally the colors!

    The eve of "the great battle of our time" (for you Angie) is upon us. Time to unfurl the flags and begin the long march to IA City. At promptly 4:30...I shall be packing my meager cardinal and gold belongings into my mate's auto...and with refreshments in our mitts...we begin the journey to victory. Please...down in the bar region tonight....if anyone should spot a blistered Cy fan rolling about in the gutter muttering obscenities...be helpful and hoist me up and send me in the right direction. I should not be hard to spot...cardinal and gold...with a dash of the UJ.
    Saturday morning...I will hopefully see many of you at finkbine.

    Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more,
    Or close the wall up with our Cyclone dead! In peace there's nothing so becomes a man As modest stillness and humility, But when the blast of war blows in our ears, Then imitate the action of the Cyclone: Stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood, I see you stand like greyhounds in the slips, Straining upon the start. The game's afoot! Follow your spirit; and upon this charge Cry 'God for CY! Ames and Saint Monkey!'

    Fired up - we're progressive enough that we run off of wind and solar power. The battle for middle earth has begun.

    I will hold down the fort here in Ames, since we were unable to obtain tickets.

    While you guard Minas Tirith from the dark legion....I shall be battling the evil horde near mount doom (kinnick)....my blade flashing...nerd shop glasses (with tape) flying off...getting ever so closer to dropping the ring of Cy into the abyss...CJohn at my side...my faithful companion....lifting...pulling me up hawk mountain. (not in a gay way of course)

    Shouldn't it run off of ethanol? Remember, "ANF" America Needs Farmers. That is my Hayden Fry thought of the day since tomorrow matches up two former Fry disciples.

    Monkeybrow, may your journey into the underworld be both enjoyable and successful.

    I apologize, CJohn - you're correct, I should support the homeland (Bag End?) more. We'll switch to ethanol.

    Hee hee - "ring of Cy" sounds funny.

    No need to apologize, Miss Angie. It was merely a suggestion.

    maybe too many nerdy twit references for CJohn to play along perhaps....do you think he would care for something a little for mainstream....a Jean-Claude Van Damme or a Mr Norris offering? I can do some wicked sidekicks!

    I am a patriotic lass - I should have thought of that. Now... on your trip through Mordor... who shall serve as your Gollum-guide?

    Star Wars? I'm afraid I won't be able to "talk the talk" as much there...

    Yes...I have thought hard and long about that...perhaps if I am to snare threemuch into our thread...I can persuade him by force to lead us the way....only someone so dour can actually lead the way past ferentz's army of darkeness. It will be a most dire journey....my health will begin to wane once past the village of Brooklyn

    To accuse me of prefering a mainstream Van Damme/Norris offering is an act of war! I will call upon Rumsfield and Cheney to concoct reports of WMD's and terrorist training programs that are located in your bathrooms, then Bush will have B52's laying waste to your rubber duckies. I am offended, Van Damme? Norris?

    I am crushed that you two have such lowered opionons of the faceless C.John.

    I have no clue what this would make IC, in that case. Tatooine? I am fairly unarmed for this turn... but does it help, CJohn?
