Brain Like a Lumpy Custard

I slept too much today -- which even I find hard to believe -- and now my brain refuses to do more than stagger along, bumping into easily-avoided stationary objects. Help me. Tell me something profound. Anyone who quotes from Buckaroo Banzai will be shot. I thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Try not to think [sic] me too hard. I'm afraid I've nothing profound to tell you.

Laurie Mann | February 3, 2007 01:50 PM

The groundhog was dead wrong yesterday. Winter's just beginning!

(OK, maybe not profound, but if your brain is indeed like lumpy custard, it might be something that seeps through.)

My favourite quote is from Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness: "The mind of man is capable of anything--because everything is in it, all the past as well as all the future."

Is that profound enough for you?

Johnny Carruthers | February 3, 2007 02:22 PM

From THE QUESTOR TAPES: "It has never been what Man is, but rather what he has the potential of becoming." (I may have mangled that just a little.)

I stayed in bed until 2 myself today--migraine. Then I walked into town, bought fudge, tooled around campus for an hour or so, walked back, and tooled around the internet. None of these things made the migraine go away, unfortunately.

How about "Arguing on the internet is like playing chicken with a drunk: even if you win, you're still an idiot." That was somebody's sig, but I can't remember whose.

Better to have a brain like lumpy custard than runny custard, at least it won't leak out of your ears

"When some wild-eyed, eight-foot-tall maniac grabs your neck, taps the back of your favorite head up against the barroom wall, looks you crooked in the eye and asks you if ya paid your dues, you just stare that big sucker right back in the eye, and you remember what ol' Jack Burton always says at a time like that: 'Have ya paid your dues, Jack?' 'Yessir, the check is in the mail.'"

There, it's not from Buckeroo Banzai...though it's close. :)

And don't forget to never drive faster than you can see...besides, it's all in the reflexes.

I hope this has helped.

If we're going for tongue twisters, I've got one that beats all. No idea who wrote it, but here it is:

I am a mother pheasant plucker. I pluck the mother pheasant. I'm the most pleasant mother pheasant plucker who ever plucked a mother pheasant. I am not the pheasant plucker; I'm the pheasant-plucker's maid. I only pluck the mother pheasant when the pheasant-plucker's late.

Try saying that five times fast.

You don't need wise quotes: you need toast with vegemite. The perfect cure for Americans with custard brains.

John N. | February 3, 2007 07:05 PM


Actually, that quote from Mary Chapin Carpenter above is from one of her few cover songs. It should be credited to Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits.

2) My contriibution:

Violets are Blue

Roses are Red

Violets are Blue

I love my loves.

-- Victor Hugo, Les Miserables, 1862

(Of course, he wrote it in French)

My favorite Hugo profundity though is:

Reason is intelligence at exercise.

Imagination is intelligence with an erection.

-- (I saw the citation once, but forgot it, and haven't found it since.)

aw, geez. I should have read the freaking notes above that tell me that Preview is wrong about line breaks.

The one line that I remember from the Myth series by Robert Asprin:

"When you make a deal with demons, count your fingers, then your toes, then your relatives."

Since I discovered Terry Pratchett, Asprin seems, by and large, pale in comparison, but that one piece of advice still shines, IMHO.

Two quotes from favorite authors:

You may borrow my life's mantra, if it helps:

"I reject your reality and substitute my own." Adam Savage, co-host of Mythbusters.

It always helps me when I'm up against the custard.

Then again, today I popped out of bed at just past 9:30 feeling all productive and shit. During the day, I've managed to clean the kitchen and bathroom, clean out the fridgie and toss together a "leftover quiche" for lunches this week, make a pressure cooker full of black beans - which were subsequently re-made into Catalan beans (to 3 cups of beans, add a big can of diced tomatoes, onion, garlic and a touch of cinnamon and nutmeg, bake with a lid for 1.5 hours, stirring every half hour, then take the lid off for 15 minutes. Nummers!) and big pot of black bean refry for burritos later in the week - and put together a big bowl of bread dough to rise overnight for baking tomorrow.

Blame it on the green tea. :-)

Oh, hey - speaking of profound quotes, did you catch Shrub's address on Corporate Responsibility to Wall St? Yanno, the one where he stands up with a straight face a says he believes a CEO should be paid based on results and banned from his position should said CEO engage in fraudulent or criminal activities. Read that in the paper this morning with a mouthful of yogurt and granola. Almost landed me in the urgent care, it did.

I see somebody already quoted RAH, so I go the Larry Niven route:

Also, I was always a huge fan of Louis Grizzard, the southern humorist, i.e. "Shoot low boys, they're riding Shetland ponies..."

Joe Rybicki | February 4, 2007 12:26 AM

I'm late to this party, but I'll share an uplifting quote from Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers:

"The steps to the dance
are best left up to chance.
Better beautiful than perfect, anyway.

While the moon wanes and waxes,
surely death and taxes
are lurking out there.
But life is grand,
love is real,
and beauty is everywhere."

Gillian: "You don't need wise quotes: you need toast with Vegemite. The perfect cure for Americans with custard brains."

Is it the revolting smell or the putrescent taste that clears your head?

I worked extensively with Aussie's in the Persian Gulf (in fact, I'm wearing an Australian Navy Boarding Officer's hat as I type this). And while I will say that the Aussies are some of the finest Sailors who have ever gone down to the sea in ships, and while I absolutely enjoyed my numerous visits to Sydney, Perth, and Fremantle, I could never understand how anyone can stomach the disgusting sludge that is Vegemite.

Admit it, you just eat it to screw with Americans, right?

On the other hand, kangaroo steak and Victoria Bitter may make up for vegemite...

Tolladay | February 4, 2007 01:07 AM

Nothing deep, just a suggestion. Try waking up at the same time every day, regardless of when you go to bed. I've found that the amount of time I sleep matters a lot less then the time I wake up. And since I'm a father too, I can sometimes get by with an insanely small amount of sleep, and still function pretty well.

But if that doesn't work, then try:

Gillian | February 4, 2007 04:03 AM

One of these days I'll work out why so few people from the US appreciate vegemite as it should be appreciated. In the meantime I will contemplate the fact that it comes in kosher and non-kosher varieties. And that it's a by-product of beer, which is why it's perfect for John's brain.

I can post emergency packages, you know. I think a 900g container would be about right.

For all you who haven't had enough BB references, (and you are bursting at the seems here), the classic sf book/video show, "Kick-ass Mystic Ninjas" recently had a review of our favorite rock star/neurosurgen/comic book hero/inventor/whatever else he does in his spare time.

Look for show#25.

And, for my profoundness entry, I leave you with Rog Zelazny in Trumps of Doom:

“Was it true?” he asked. “Would I have gained had I succeeded?”

“Power is like money.” I said. “You can usually get it if you’re competent and it’s the only thing you want in life. Would you have gained by it though? I don’t think so.”

“I’m talking about the meaning life. You know that.”

When the Malwa soldiers rousted the stablekeeper in Kausambe, and questioned him, he said nothing. The soldiers did not question him for very long. They were board and inattentive, having already visited five stables in the great city that morning, and with more to come. So the stablekeeper was able to satisfy them soon enough.

No, he had not seen any young noblewoman – or soldiers – leaving on horseback

He could not tell the difference between Kushans and any other steppe barbarians, anyway. The savages all looked alike to him.

The soldiers, peasants from the Gangetic plain, smiled. Nodded.

He had seen nothing. Heard nothing. Knew nothing.

The soldiers, satisfied, went on their way.
The plans and schemes of tyrants are broken by many things. They shatter against the cliffs of heroic struggle. They rupture on the reefs of open resistance. And they are slowly eroded, bit by little bit, on the very beaches where they measure triumph, by the countless grains of sand. By the stubborn little decencies of humble little men.

My personal mantra has always been from Stan Freeberg's History of the United States of America part 1. It's "In a hundred years, what the heck deck difference will make?" It's in the Betsy Ross scene. In the midst of making many decisions, I ask myself that question to see if it really matters what I decide in the long run. Usually, it doesn't.

I once was talking with some of the teenagers in the library, and they asked me my thoughts on "Wuthering Heights" since they we're covering it in school. My thought was "You can never underestimate a person's capacity to create their own hell." The kids thought it was amazingly profound and one of them got an "A" on an essay when he used that as his thesis. His teacher was very impressed. The sad thing is I see it in effect almost every day.
