ORIGINAL: Cap Mandrake

So we are having this Family Feud competition at work with medical questions. Yeah, sure, it's seriously geeky, but it's fun and everyone tries to show off.

So anyway, we have two teams and each side has to send up one guy/gal to answer the speed question. The other side sends up the rheumatologist recently graduated from har fellowship which means she had to study for the Internal Medicine and Rheumatology boards. Even worse, she's Asian, so most likely her competitor will get his/her ass kicked.

So on our side nobody wants to go up. At least one of the internists should go. They're all pussies, it gets really pitiful, so I finally volunteer to go up. Maybe the question will be on rotavirus serotypes or something?

We are standing up there ready to ring in ......."What do these drugs have in common? Procainamide..."

Me: So I start thinking..."antiarrhythmic...never used it my career"

Moderator: "Hydralazine...."

Me: "Hmm....an older anti-hypertensive..never used it my life...maybe cardiac drugs? I need at least one more"

Moderator: "Minocycline..."

Me: "Antibiotic? What the He.."

DING!

Asian chick: "DRUG INDUCED LUPUS!"

Moderator: THAT'S CORRECT! <WILD APPRAUSE AND MURMURINGS OF RESPECT>

Me: "WTF. A f****** rhematology question?" <Goes back to seat. Tries to rook invisible>

Sounds like she's sleeping with the moderator.

You did one of these last year too, IIRC. I'm still sore at you for completely ignoring our incessant mewlings about Pocahantas Girl's Halloween costume. We haven't heard "boo" about it, and certainly haven't seen any pictures...


No, that was & Deadly Sins, and 7 "couples".

This is a bit more ambitious. 12 courses and 12 "couples" (not everyone is paired up)

As for the pics..I actually looked on SG's computer. No go. PG might have some but I think it would creep her out so I refuse to ask.

Can't wait to hear what they come up with for some of the twelve dishes. e.g. What would you do for eleven [or whatever the number is] "maids a-milking"? Does it involve a wet nurse?
The "Lords a-leaping" and "Ladies dancing" can probably be achieved with some readily available recreational chemicals ...

****************Tilamook, Oregon, Feb. 28, 1943(c)***************


A gathering town dignitaries for the opening of the US Navy Airship Base, Tilamook. There are 3 airships, one is tethered to a telephone pole and the other two scutter about at ground level, partly inflated.

Robert "Bob" Citron, Tilamook CD coordinator: Congresswoman, shouldn't there be some pilots or ground crews or something? I mean, who's gonna look for the Jap subs?

Congresswoman Nan Wood Honeyman, Oregon 3rd: <slightly annoyed> Bob, there aren't any Japs around here. Don't worry about it.

Robert "Bob" Citron, Tilamook CD coordinator: Then why do we have the base here?

Congresswoman Nan Wood Honeyman, Oregon 3rd: It's about dollars for the community, Bob. That's what the 3rd District wants.

Robert "Bob" Citron, Tilamook CD coordinator: But what about war profiteering? What about Truman?

Congresswoman Nan Wood Honeyman, Oregon 3rd: <leans over toward Bob> F*** Truman, Bob. Get with the plan. Shouldn't you be scanning the horizon or something?

This really did happen..sort of. I see one of the airbase thingys over Tilamook and I find 2 deflated airships and no support.


54 LYB bombers at Beazelbob with no fighters. Evidently, JJ has worked out we cant hit it with my B-17's or B-24's. We might be abe to scrape together some LB-30's from somewhere but would prefer to wait till we have a level 4 field in range for the heavies (maybe Ternate or Boela soon)

******************Feb 22, 1943(c)********************

Dadjangas: JJ sent in a lone DD to cause trouble at Dajangas. They ran into the APD group and put a 5 inch hole in USS Cushing. Not sure yet if they drove off the LCT's or inhibited the unloading of the fast transport group. Our recon did not show the DD coming. Seems like somebody might have hit Asakaze. Crever baaaahstards.


Night Time Surface Combat, near Dadjangas at 78,93, Range 11,000 Yards

Japanese Ships
DD Asakaze

Allied Ships
DD Cushing, Shell hits 1
APD Alden
APD Fox
APD Peary
DD Thracian
APD Stringham
APD Brooks


Burma: JJ attacked the two Chindit brigades at Myitkynia yesterday but only achieved 1:2. No attack in the air on on the ground today. Admiral Lord Sprior reports he has brought up the fearsome Vultee Vengeance.

The Vengeance is ours sayeth the Admiral.

China: Looks like JJ has turned around and is no longer marching on Chungking. Instead they have turned NE to deal with the ankle-biters that are harrying their supply route further back.

I think the TC can also fire 2" HE bomblets for anti-personnel/ anti-close assult tatics weapon. Could be very effective in a Banzai attack ..

I watched the Feb. 22 combat replay. I like to do that every 3 or 4 months of game time to keep current.


The Little Yellow Baaaahstards shot down 2 or 3 C-47's over Dadjangas! Either they LRCAP'ed over Dadjangas or it was just CAP spillover from Davao. Davao has both fighters and bombers. Rooks rike we have a war on...yeeehaw!

The first lot of Sea Bees and a Bn of 129th Inf Regt. are ashore at Dajangas along with most of the parachute infantry of 503rd. No sense getting more C-47's shot up so air drops will drop. Instead, the remaining troops of 503rd will move to Sidate along with the C-47's. Sidate just went to level 2 which will put Cotabato in air drop range as well. Cotabato has a level 2 airfield and I believe is ungarrisoned. If another recon today confirms this, we can drop on Cotabato tomorrow. There is, however a paved road from Cotabato to Davao so we would need to get a substantial ground unit ashore. The best candidate is 8th Marine Rgt which is amphibious embarked aboard 17 kt AP's just NE of Manado. They were prepped for Dadjangas but it would be too dangerous to land there without air cover yet.

That would make D-Day Cotabato D-Day+2 Dadjangas.

Meanwhile, at Dadjangas, we start cutting down a bunch of papaya trees for an airstrip. It's a shame but there is much more Phillipino gold to be mined with all the GI's ashore. Someone left behind some fuel from the evacuation of of the PI so the PT boats at Dadjangas have gas. Cebu USN unit landing by LCT/LCVP tonight.

Boela just went to level 4 so 5th Air Force will try to stage a raid on Davao with B-24's just arrived today.

I had a brillaint idea for the "Maids a Milking" course for the soiree.......Breast shaped ice cream prepared in a custom mold which I volunteered to lovingly make myself based on an actual real life mold of one of the women that will be attending the party. It would have been fun for the other guests to try to guess who the model was. I further proposed to stick a Hershey's Kiss candy right at the strategic spot. Guests could chose chocolate, vanilla or toffee depending on their preferences.

Sadly, my idea was rejected in an entirely undemocratic fashion.

Just curious if you've given some thought to the "Geese-a-laying" aspect of the gifts. I've some suggestions there, if you're interested.

Here's the latest:

Lords a leaping: Champaign in "flutes"

Geese a laying: Some kind of egg thingy.

Golden Rings: Calamari

I don't know what else. All I can say is there better be a mound of calamari about 2 feet high or I am going for a steak afterwards.

This just in...White Elephant gift is some kind of sex item. I can see where this going. My guess is nobody is going to mention George Orwell or Ayn Rand..or even Karl Marx

Bump to save from page 2 purgatory.

Cap'n-I assume that no one will discuss the relative merits of oxygen or electrical torpedo drives either? What a boring party.

That is a lead pipe cinch but I will try to work in a discussion of the merits of the FM1.

Just in case there is an any disrobing I plan to shave the mole on my back.

I am rethinking the landing at Dadjangas when we could have waited two days and landed at Cotabato which has an airfield.

Oh well, shock and awe baby, shock and awe.

We keep advancing until JJ does something about it. There are still many LYB transports at Palau. Evidently, JJ assumed we would land there.

"Blonde chicks" are never 'being nice' to old codgers, Cap'n. Never. Hope this helps.
