Aliens Leave Behind the Link Leak Virus

published this at 2:04 pm

Chris Says He Wasn’t Abducted

So, it’s as you suspected. Successful Blog was crawling with aliens. At least it was last night when we were talking. And, as usual, the Link Leak virus hit again. The Link Leak Virus is a special strain of the indie virus with blogtipping mutations that occur in threes.

Cool links were shared.

Inside the Alien Conversation

Here are a few things that were said . . .

OK, since it’s obviously alien picture night, here is me at one of my most “Alienesque” moments…

GAH! I can’t believe I just did that!

Wendy, Is that your spaceship in your hand?
How do you fly it?

34
ME Strauss Says:
August 15th, 2006 at 7:28 pm e
Wendy.
You just won some sort of an award.

The Face the Aliens Bravery Award.

I was afraid to ask about your alien, Joe.

Wendy…?

I found a couple aliens on my doorstep Sunday night, by the way – I should put the pictures up.

My best friend’s grandmother used to have a pet squirrel that would sleep in her shirt. Why did I share that? Good question.

And yes, Basil’s in the Bahamas. Bit of a detour before visiting Easton in Mesa, Arizona.

60
ME Strauss Says:
August 15th, 2006 at 7:48 pm e
Hey Ben,
Was your best friend’s (yeah right, best friend) grandmother wearing the shirt when the squirrel would crawl in?

61

August 15th, 2006 at 7:49 pm e
Hey everyone,

I’m here. I’ll be popping in and out in between responding to my 80 or so emails I have to go over.

62
ME Strauss Says:
August 15th, 2006 at 7:50 pm e
Hey Doug!

Any emails from aliens — business blogs from Mars?

68
Ben Yoskovitz Says:
August 15th, 2006 at 7:53 pm e
Yes Liz — she was wearing the shirt. Otherwise it doesn’t quite have the same punch as a story, right?

84
ME Strauss Says:
August 15th, 2006 at 7:59 pm e
What do aliens eat?

85
Ben Yoskovitz Says:
August 15th, 2006 at 8:00 pm e
People.

86
Joe Says:
August 15th, 2006 at 8:01 pm e
Each other

I think aliens eat the stuff in AdLib’s photo!

Becky McCray Says:
August 15th, 2006 at 8:03 pm e
You know, my husband is watching a how-to video in the other room, on taxidermy. It’s just a bit gross to start with, and the aliens and what they eat seems to just fit right in.
“I’m going to use some Critter Clay here, to set the ear butts.”
(Watch, that will be the line that Liz quotes tomorrow next to my name!)

111
Rick Says:
August 15th, 2006 at 8:14 pm e
Ben, so what finally happened to the squirrel?

116
Ben Yoskovitz Says:
August 15th, 2006 at 8:16 pm e
Rick – that’s a good question. I’ll have to ask my friend. I’ll get back to you guys next week, promise!

117
Becky McCray Says:
August 15th, 2006 at 8:16 pm e
Does it count if we can think of some people we’d like to ask to leave this planet?

119
ME Strauss Says:
August 15th, 2006 at 8:17 pm e
Joe,
I’m taking #112 out of context.

121
Becky McCray Says:
August 15th, 2006 at 8:18 pm e
#112 just begs to be taken out of context!

125
ME Strauss Says:
August 15th, 2006 at 8:20 pm e
Yeah, Becky,
I’m glad that you agree about #112, especially after my gaff last week.

127
Joe Says:
August 15th, 2006 at 8:21 pm e
Liz, you asked if anyone ever met an alien re#112

128
Becky McCray Says:
August 15th, 2006 at 8:21 pm e
Oops, Liz, now you have to tell the story! I must have missed your gaff!

133
Ben Yoskovitz Says:
August 15th, 2006 at 8:22 pm e
Night Wendy…

#112 — I missed it the first time, scanning quick. After re-reading it….hmmm…it does beg an explanation.

Scott Bakula’s cool, no?

Out-of-context quoting is a thing of beauty if done in a friendly fashion, yeh?

Hmm – where’s Scorpia when we need her? Aliens are a big part of gaming and I’d like to ask what her favourite gaming alien is…

139
ME Strauss Says:
August 15th, 2006 at 8:26 pm e
Yes I think it is indeed, AdLib,
In fact, I think out of context quoting, can be an artform if done with grace and delicacy.

141
ME Strauss Says:
August 15th, 2006 at 8:27 pm e
Becky it’s in last’s week’s summary.

153
Yvonne Says:
August 15th, 2006 at 8:34 pm e
Statler ^_^

What do aliens use on toast? I’m making myself a sandwich.

154
John Richardson Says:
August 15th, 2006 at 8:34 pm e
Out here in California we have a couple of different types of aliens… we have undocumented aliens, illegal aliens, and of course the Canadians with girl friends called Leann who they refer to as
Aa Leann.

It’s all alien to me….

J.R.

155
ME Strauss Says:
August 15th, 2006 at 8:34 pm e
AdLib probably has a picture of what aliens put on toast.

161
Statler Says:
August 15th, 2006 at 8:37 pm e
Wow, you guys move way too fast for me! And I’m in awe of the sci-fi knowledge here.

Yvonne – has to be Vegemite. If they’re still selling the stuff after 80 years, SOMEONE must be eating it.

169
Joe Says:
August 15th, 2006 at 8:42 pm e
An Alien is defined as someone (thing) not from HERE. Wherever Here is, US, Canada, Norwegia, New ZealousLand, Austri(li)a, Et Alia…
So, if you’re not from HERE (wherever that is) you are an alien.

181
Statler Says:
August 15th, 2006 at 8:52 pm e
But where does the definition of alien end? Is my next door neighbour an alien because he’s not from here (i.e. Chez Statler)?

183
Advice Librarian Says:
August 15th, 2006 at 8:54 pm e
If you wanna go that way, Statler, you’re all aliens because you’re not me – i.e, the person living inside my head…

186
ME Strauss Says:
August 15th, 2006 at 8:56 pm e
AdLib,
I’m really laughing. I wish Chris was here so I could call the guy living inside your head, Jack.

188
Ben Yoskovitz Says:
August 15th, 2006 at 8:56 pm e
AdLib — you sure I’m not living inside your head?

I am Canadian after all…

190
ME Strauss Says:
August 15th, 2006 at 8:57 pm e
Wait, wait, Ben.
I want to move inside AdLib’s head. I’ll pay you $50 bucks American.

Advice Librarian Says:

Unless solipsism is correct and you’re all just figments of my imagination I’m pretty sure you’re not living in my head – I’m using all of it. Since I’ve lived in Canada and visited the US briefly, I’m fairly confident both those places actually exist. New Zealand I’m not so sure of though – is there any actual evidence for it being a real country as opposed to a collective delusion?

201
Starbucker Says:
August 15th, 2006 at 9:02 pm e
Since I’m always relating things to music, any time I think of the word “alien” too long I get that Genesis song in my head (and it’s not a good song) – you know, “it’s no fun, being an illegial alien”. That’s in my head right now. Very cheezy video too.

205
Yvonne Says:
August 15th, 2006 at 9:04 pm e
Insert your own Scientology joke here.

Ha ha

207
ME Strauss Says:
August 15th, 2006 at 9:05 pm e
Yvonne,
I’m still laughing.

216
Statler Says:
August 15th, 2006 at 9:13 pm e
…and the Lord said, “Let there be phoning of home.” And behold, there was much phoning…

217
Starbucker Says:
August 15th, 2006 at 9:14 pm e
Gosh, I have to admit it – I cried the first time I saw ET – at the theater. “ET phone home”? C’mon!

219
ME Strauss Says:
August 15th, 2006 at 9:15 pm e
And then the telcos took over the phoning . . . and the dark ages happened and the Lord brought the rains and covered the entire Earth with floods, making all of the people leave in spaceships to become aliens

Hey Trisha! How was your day?

Time Lords! I like that. I want to be a Time Lord when I grow up

You want me to ruin the ending of a book?

267
Advice Librarian Says:
August 15th, 2006 at 9:56 pm e
Webb is a community college lecturer in physics who thinks the answer to Fermi’s Paradox is that we’re alone in the universe – which represents a staggering failure of imiagination.

The universe is so staggeringly vast that the probability of earth being the only planet to develop life/intelligent life is … well, somewhere on the far side of the probabilty of Greath Chtulhuh waking from his sleep tomorrow. At the same time, the chance of them being close enough to talk to in meaningful time is also vanishingly small… but that doesn’t mean that they’re not there.

Hi! and a good evening to all, though it’s morning over here. I’m late as usual but, people tells me george is an alien. is he?

Cat Says:
August 15th, 2006 at 10:10 pm e
Hi Liz,

Sorry I’m late. I’m having computer problems. Again.

This is just not my month. Aliens? Yes, you could say they’ve taken over hardware/software/the lot.

I’ve now switched to the G5, but that means all the good stuff is still over on my powerbook. Passwords, everything.

It’s possessed for sure.

Joe Says:

From aliens to Space Agencies
We have gone.
From the Hubble to the TARDIS,
they could write a song

Time Lords to NASA
and planets unseen,
There will be songs sung
of the Night of the ALIEEEN.

Nite Liz

Yesterday was Tuesday, wasn’t it?

I totally forgot about OCN when I got home. Some birds flew past my window…

337
ME Strauss Says:
August 16th, 2006 at 6:10 am e
Hi Chris!
Those birds have been distracting people all day and night. I think they’re aliens.

338
Chris Cree Says:
August 16th, 2006 at 8:34 am e
Well at least I wasn’t abducted!

339
ME Strauss Says:
August 16th, 2006 at 8:50 am e
Oh yes, you were.

    Hey Liz,
    I think the aliens that have attacked cats computer recently landed on my host server.

    It’s been going through a time warp all day… in and out, in and out…

    I can’t even turn a page on any of my Blogs, the Website or Forum without it blowing up like a proton torpedo hitting a Klingon WarBird.

    Maybe it will be better tomorrow.

    BTW, That little ditty was not my best poem you know. It just happened to be on topic. ;-)

    Hey Joe,
    Sorry to hear about your computer. It seems the aliens went home with you.
    I liked the poem it seemed a great way to end the night. :)

    Hi Liz,

    Looks like I’ve been out of the loop for a while. When is the Link Leak bonanza? :)

    The links at the top are those for the moment. Are you thinking I should plan a Link Leak event? :)

    Oops, sori. I meant: “When is the NEXT Link Leak Bonanza?” After the next Open Mic? :)

    Sometimes I slide one in when no one’s looking. I haven’t done that for a while, because I’ve been so busy working. But you never know when I might. ;)
