Alphabeter, nice to meet you! I just popped over to see the hows and whyfors of who linked to my blog from here, and LO and beHOLD, I have been tagged by a very interesting woman who OBVIOUSLY knows her sheep. Or how sheep think, at least. Or, at the very least, how they sh*t in semi trailers.

My word verification closely resembles a certain tagged crime writer's last name: cxznckqw. I am suspicious.

Mary Louisa

Nothing is coincidence. Not even when sheep shit coins.

Thanks for the tagback.

I came to your blog via MG's. I loved the post for today!

Thanks! You can also put your answer on your blog when you tag others.

Welcome Kelly. I hope you enjoy my future posts.

A person who likes Mythbusters and would most like to talk to four criminals...there's logic there somewhere.


At 18/1/06 11:54, Blogger Alphabeter added...

Explain that to my family, would ya?

I keep telling them there is logic to my chaos, they just tell me to clean up!

At 18/1/06 12:19, Blogger Erik Ivan James added...

Thanks for the compliment of tagging me. Lisa S. got me the other day so I posted this A.M.

I'll look forward to visiting you on a regular basis.

At 18/1/06 12:35, Blogger Alphabeter added...

Oh well. At least you answered it!

I'm still laughing over the job where you had to muck out the pig trucks.

DB Cooper...I think they think he's dead.

Interesting list of people you want to meet there.

At 20/1/06 03:00, Blogger Alphabeter added...

You'd been tagged already or I would have bopped you MG.

DB Cooper is not dead. He's Jimmy James, late of tv's "Newsradio". Didn't ya hear?!

I think if he were really dead, he would have left instructions for his identity to be revealed and we would all know by now.

At 20/1/06 11:54, Blogger M. G. Tarquini added...

No. I didn't hear. Last I heard of DB Cooper was on the History Channel or something. They were saying that they think he died when he bailed out of the plane.

I think they said that. It was late, I was sleepy.

Who is Jimmy James?

I don't think he would have left instructions. That's kinda like the Evil Overlord explaining the plan for world domination so the hero has time to make his escape. If he was smart, and I guess he was, he'd have erased all chance that they'd track him.

At 20/1/06 14:42, Blogger Alphabeter added...

I have that History Channel special.

Maybe he did die, but maybe he didn't. He could have also been shot gambling the money away.

Jimmy James was a character on "Newsradio". The character was an eccentric billionaire who was "exposed" as being D.B. Cooper.

He seems to have erased all tracks.

I still think if he's around, he'll leave a note claiming credit. He got away with it but the best part is claiming credit now that the statutes of limitations have run out. Then he really got away with it.

At 21/1/06 13:00, Blogger M. G. Tarquini added...

I'd just write a best-selling novel.

At 21/1/06 17:10, Blogger Alphabeter added...

Well, if Paris Hilton, Pam Anderson and Jenna Jameson can...

But Deep Throat didn't (or hasn't yet).
