U Cn Haz Feard of Me

My college buddy, Sendlo, once wrote in response to an email I'd sent: "I got the opportunity to run around Abner's mind for a while. It was frightening."

There's a good reason why my friends all "fear" me.

The output from that mass of grey matter between my ears.

"What do you mean?" you ask.

Let me give you a brief glimpse inside...

On one forum that I inhabit, a fellow poster made a comment about writing a story centered around an elementalist.

Unable to resist I posted: "So is he the very model of a modern elementalist?"

Reply: "Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant."

In response I wrote:
I am the very model of a modern elementalist
I simply wave my hand and I control the rain, the fog, the mist
Or call upon a rockslide or a firestorm if I am pissed
A waterspout, a hurricane, tornado, well, you get the gist
.
Here's another...

On another message board I frequent, this one for audio drama folks associated with Pendant Productions, someone made the joke of "Pendant: The Musical."

So I posted the following:
PENDANT FAN
I remember the first time I became a Pendant fan. Jeffrey helped me. Isn't that right, Jeffrey?

JEFFREY
That's right.

PENDANT FAN
I was searching high and low for good audio dramas. Wasn't reallyfinding them. Then along came Jeffrey who said to me...

(sung to the tune of "Over at the Frankenstein Place" from THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW [in this, the stage version, second verse has the same melody as the first verse])

JEFFREY
