(July 2011) u.f.o. NEWS
a sorta bloggish spot
||Coming soon (July 8, 2011) is the annual Rolling Sculpture Car Show in Ann Arbor. I expect the U.F.O. Cumooter to make an appearance again.
I am quite sure there is something going on with the Cumooter! My desk was a mess...well a different mess... today... bits of brass and stuff have disappeared. I suspect that the Cumooter is being modified or improved. We shall see on the day of the Rolling Sculpture car show.
||The Rolling Sculpture Car Show went really well... even though the Cumooter had a fuel leak which shot over four feet!. I was able to contain it and refuel with some back-up Vernors. Unfortunately, without proper gaskets, there remained a steady drip.
The Cumooter was sporting a brand new trailer this year! It was already carrying quite a collection of fairy droppings.
||I need a month to catch up with the urban-fairy stuff!
There is another sign that the urban-fairies may be "silly", but there are "stupid". It looks like they added backs to the shelves in the annex to the fairy "store" at The Peaceable Kingdom. I am quite sure that this is to help minimize things dropping and falling into the abyss below. I imagine that they have a heap of fairy droppings down there.... sorta of like Smaug's hoard.
Of course with a bit less gold and rubies and more plastic and bottle caps.
I expect it won't be too long before they start filling the shelves with...."fairy droppings".. much like the shelves in teh fairy "store" which are over-sploding with stuff.
