Doc Bill: Thanks for helping to set up the pincer. Louis walked into it.

Not "walked". Sauntered with, dare I say it, a certain devil may care espiglerie.

Anyway. Pimlico.

As I sit here on a bench outside the Waitrose at King's Cross munching on a chip buttie and a bag of Prawn Cocktail Snips, two things occur to me.

First, Amadan may in fact catch the 1835 to Bayswater at the rate he's chugging down Platform 4 unhampered, it appears, by his polyester pants generating enough static electricity to light Wormwood Scrugs for a year, alas, the Bayswater train leaves from Platform 3.  Ah, he's off ... to Birmingham.

And, second, where have all the chew toys gone?  Not a creationist, er, Seeker of Truth, to be seen in these parts.  I suppose I'll have to have a choc-ice and a pint alone.  Again.

South Kensington.

Finishing up a 70 hour work week.  Trying to scoop what left of my brains back into my skull.  I've let my mind wander too far to exciting places as I make my move to:

Last Legal Move: Snaresbrook.

Some of you Americans seem to think that Mornington Crescent is somehow like Calvinball, an entirely ruleless and fictional game. Might I remind you that this, like the Wikipedia article, is a distinct falsehood.

The School Cormorant was Rules were handed down to us by the Town of Chipping Sodbury in the 1800s darkest recesses of antiquity. The game has a noble tradition through all civilised nations. Now don't piss me off or I'll insist we play by the rules which operated under Charlemagne, you see if I don't.

Anyway, enough tough love. I shall restart play from Snaresbrook with a move to:

Aldwych!

Louis

Have we invoked any of the Great Old Ones to devour our opponents? Have tracks been torn up and subway cars been devoured by hideous unnamed evil? Is London still standing (or at least parts thereof)? Then I'd say we Americans have been a little too polite. It's not a proper game of Mornington Crescent unless Shub-Niggurath (bare minimum) has put in an appearance says I.

At any rate:

FTK: I Didn't answer your questions because it beats the hell out of me.

PaV: I suppose for me to be pried away from what I do to focus long and hard on that particular problem would take, quite honestly, hundreds of thousands of dollars to begin to pique my interest.

Well I suppose you could always team up with the French and try to "introduce us to democracy" or "instigate regime change".

Actually, that's not a bad idea...

We do have a secret, undercover, disguised agent working on a plan to do just that.

While I may not be the most adept at gamesmanship, I do seem to be picking this up pretty well.  For an American fox, anyway.  Besides, while you all were admiring the last few moves, I snuck across the Excelsior line at least 3 times.  :)  Plus, I'm currently writing the software to put MC on the Gameboy.  And they told me it couldn't be done!!!

Which brings me to Birmingham, where I'll visit Sailor Sam (again).  No eggs, though.

Highcastle and the buildings adjacent (I tend to plan big).

1) I notice the piano is not fucking blue.

B) That's not blues, it's just boogie-woogie on 'ludes.

iii) @jeffox: Wot, Birmingham, Alabama? "International" means players, not systems.

4) Tasteful applicaton of the DLR there, 'Far. Can I call you 'Far?

I'm a fan of the Siberry Symmetry Method*, as apparent in my choice of...

Harlesden.

*J. Siberry, the fellow Canadian who was quite obsessed with mirror/balance play in the mid 1980's. Never really got her very far professionally ("It takes forever, if you go by inertia"), but the aesthetes among us appreciated her artistry.

All I can say is:



Mornington Crescent. I win.

(That, by the way, is an original photo, taken yesterday on my iPhone from a moving taxi, so I reckon that's good enough)

Now, since I have been out on the lash in London this weekend:



Goodnight. I am off to get a new liver.

Or, as a hungover Lou Grant once said, "They should raise the legal drinking age to 70."

In honour of Louis's sub-meteorological state, I was considering

Hanger Lane


but memories of several wearisome journies of my own through the twilit ordeal that he now endures lead me instead to

Ickenham

(and "gag me with a Spoon!" as Moon Zappa said)

Interesting. I have to say I prefer a wide-open game to all that crowded and timid shuffling about that was going on last game.

(Though "Turnham Green" would have been a propos, too.)
