Things keep getting weirder and weirder.
I was on a video conference call with my buddy, Grum, in Toronto today. He was in the office with Lucy, and since I am (or was) on my way to Stockton California . . . I was a hologram at my desk. We discussed him vinyl lettering up the front door of our shop, as the 1″ high black on white P-Touch label with our company name on it, just doesn’t cut the mustard. He was going to do it a couple of years ago, but time flies when you’re busy . . . right Grum?
Anyway, he’s a busy guy, I’m a busy guy, and Lucy . . . she was rolling her eyes the more we talked.
Grum is just like me . . . a lively chap and quite the talker . . . only he is very creative. He can whip up cartoon characters . . . like in 2 minutes he can have something drawn up that is worth $5000, pat it on the head as he gives it away for $10,000 . . . never caring about royalties. But he doesn’t do that.
We sat there chatting for a couple of hours . . . I mean he and Lucy sat there for a couple of hours . . . I just phase shifted in my seat every few minutes as the 2 Vs on my bum were still bothering me. That W in HOLLYWOOD sign is razor thin . . . who wudda thunk it?
After talking about his business for a while, we shifted to talking about ARG MetaPhoria. I had mentioned that Lucy and I has picked up a Sony 55″ Bravia XBR LCD TV, and he suddenly burst out laughing, as he remembered something about the site that made him laugh his head off.

Now that is funny!
I was just saying to Agent Pete 8 (hi Agent Pete 8 ) how we have no time to edit, then I posted a moment ago with 2 spelling mistakes (wierder and wierder,) so I edited them and did an update. Those of you with RSS feeds will notice it. Maybe I’ll turn it back into a draft and re-publish it. Yeah, I’ll do that. I’ll call Ping-O-Matic and get them to pull the first ping.

OMFNG, this is not my night! I just checked the draft and re-post and I said “hi Agent Pete smiley face” . . . I never use smiley faces. I checked the html and it was 8 then a close parenthesis, so hopefully I can wipe the smiley face off the next update. Forget turning it back into a draft and reposting – major hassle.
Anyway, where was I?
Oh, Grum could not remember what made him laugh his head off, but it was something that was said here in the last week, through the Festivus holiday season.
Then he said he does tune in to ARG MetaPhoria a lot, but doesn’t have the foggiest idea what we are doing, but he loves the music we play. He suggested we catalog all the people here, and have a precis of what has happened so far.

OK, you got me. In my zeal to post, I sometimes miss characters, eh, Agent Pet 8 ? I correct the minor spelloids as I go along.

Geez, I get sidetracked so easily, don’t I?
Here’s the deal. I don’t plan any posts, the story goes meandering along. The central core is Operation BlueBalls, which is our ultimate mission (I think it is anyway, as no-one tells me anything around here – typical mushroom management.)
We have mini-missions in between, as some things just have to be done.
For example, we were happily floating along, towards Stockton California today, when my phone rang AGAIN from California!
This call was the weirdest yet. And yes, I am gazing at that word “weird,” to ensure that nothing wierd happens with this iteration of the sub-post.

OK, looking good.
I didn’t really get a much of a chance to explain much about the MetaFlorin game pieces we want to distribute across the planet beginning with Ireland, as Lucy was almost pulling muscles in her eyes, what with all the rolling with the nerdy homies . . . yikes, that was a bit of a stretch.
If I were to mention to Susan Bonds . . . Susan, we need to give you a more Agent-like name . . . how about you join our ARG . . . you could be Agent Suzy . . . that has a nice ring to it.
Oh, did I tell you, you have no choice in the matter? You’re already in it . . . just kidding . . . no, really, you are actually now in ARG MetaPhoria.
We need your help. We have no money . . . we need you to call Bobby Shriver and Bono for us, since you seem to have The Edge on these matters.
Can you help us make this Mission Possible, Agent Suzy?
(Note: I am resting for a minute to check over the direction of this post to see if it needs a spoonful of sugar)

Good thing I checked out the post, as I have suddenly realized that it is not easy to explain what we are doing here in a 10 minute informercial.
Agent Suzy, we are aliens that have come to Earth from MetaPhoria to help you all understand what money is, what it does, and what it can do for you all when it comes to trading, as everyone seems to have lost The Edge and have become numb to the true purpose of money . . . yet they think things are fine . . . just fine.
Money is a means to an end, not the end in itself.
In order to do this, we have invented a game. It is a board game, using a Celtic Chess Board. We are looking for your help in getting the word out in a carefully orchestrated way.
The game pieces initial function is advertising for the site, but later in the game they will be used for trading tasks between people all over the world.
You will get paid when money flows into this web site. As money flows in, more game pieces will be printed.
We all have so much to learn about money
I’ll email you a link to this post, and do it again tomorrow.
Dang, talk about an anticlimactic ending. I have to mention that the phone call I got from Pomona California was the weirest one yet. They spoke English to me and I responded! I’ll tell you what they said tomorrow. Needless to say, Agent Joe 90 keyed the new coordinates into the iPhone4, and the AirCar magically changed direction.
