Oh frabjous day

My favourite-esque university prospect (in Belgium) has just responded, telling me things look good. And Figaro promised he'd call me "Doctor" when we're feeling amorous. Besides that, I feel like I don't have much to say today. The one thing getting me down is that Belgium might be as I-want-to-shoot-myself dark as Toronto is right now. Everything is fine and I still feel like removing part of my skull just so I can get some direct sunlight to the brain.

One question: how the fuck do you make a makeshift sub? I know some of you reading must know. Tell me. Inquiring minds, et cetera. This is interesting because I just read a 2002 book about how a member of the Russian military tried to sell the Medellin cartel a diesel submarine back in the 1990's - complete with crew - for something like $5 million. Looks like they saved a dollar to spend $90 million.

Congratulations, Doctor Mistress. I think you could handle the bleakness of Belgium - I don't think it's as bad as Toronto but they don't have the snow to look forward to like we do and which brightens the city up.

Try taking Vitamin D. It might just be a tricky way of getting the same effect as spending your daily hour in the sun.

Mistress La Spliffe ha detto...

Ta, Sugar. Toronto snow is shit. Not like Ottawa snow, which does add a nice aesthetic dimension to the city.

Yeah, I should get on the Vitamin D. Is that the one that's tricky for natural sources? Maybe I'll go buy some at lunch.

I don't know. I just know it's the happy-making vitamin that should be more widely used.

Lady Guinevere just sent some pics from Belgium, where she is on internship. It looks fabulous, but I'm biased with lots of Flemish DNA molecules floating around...anyway, which university would you potentially be at Dr. La Spliffe? The one in Leuven?

Vitamin D is tricky for natural sources, discounting the sun. I'm pretty sure a good part of the populations walks around a bit vitamin-D deficient.

That's the one . . . do you mean the lady with the fat baby? Who eats all the poutine?

Melbine ha detto...

You got it! It looks beautiful over there...they seem so happy.

Mistress La Spliffe ha detto...

I'm glad to hear it!

Melbine ha detto...

Oh, and I have no idea how you'd make a makeshift sub. Unless you count the one I made in grade 8 for the 'battle of the bands' at school. My friends and I mouthed along to Yellow Submarine. We made one motherf***er big one out of bulletin board paper.

Mistress La Spliffe ha detto...

Maybe that's the design they ripped off.

Sea fish have vitamin D, I think.

Is seizing submarines in international waters (it probably would happen in international waters) legal? Isn't that piracy?

Mistress La Spliffe ha detto...

It was in international waters, and fuck. How embarassing. I would have known the answer to that question two years ago. In truth I don't know now. I think there may be certain international issues that permit national governments to make arrests on the high seas and knowing Americans blow might be one of them.

And yesterday I got some halibut liver oil. In capsules, thank god. I broke one open for Lexie to lick up and the stench was overwhelming.
