Duck, Duck, Goose

Well, well, there seems to be a goose on my grave and as the old saying goes, if you can't make pâté you might as well advance the meme.

Easy enough:

• look up page 123 in the nearest book

• look for the fifth sentence

• then post the three sentences that follow that fifth sentence on page 123.

Always a pleasure to follow orders. Let's see, carry the 2, divide by 17, remember "i before e" . . . okay, here we are. Fresh from the previously unpublished poem by T. S. Eliot, "Effluent Non Grata":

(e) Licenses may be issued only upon successful completion of the required examination and submission of proof of sufficient experience, proof of general liability insurance, and a corporate surety bond in the amount of at least $10,000.

(f) Notwithstanding paragraph (e), the examination and proof of experience are not required
for an individual sewage treatment system professional who, on the effective date of the rules adopted under subdivision 1, holds a certification attained by examination and experience under a voluntary certification program administered by the agency.

(g) Local units of government may not require additional local licenses for individual
sewage treatment system professionals.
Thanks to Jennifer for shining a bright light on the glory that is my existence. It's hard to know whether it's better to know me or to be me.

Time now for my regular afternoon bout of uncontrollable sobbing. In the meantime:

Duck,

Duck,

Duck,

Duck,

Goose.

That is all.

Except I really do.

Becoming an ISTS professional is a wonderful magical experience that can only be fully appreciated by those who have taken the prerequisite hands-on courses.

...With her mercurial moods, yo momma can also be described as having a temperment as fickle (constantly changing). The career of John Travolta, from Saturday Night Live stardom, to Perfect obscurity, to a Pulp Fiction resurgence is nothing if not mercurial. Mercurial has a second meaning: having traits attributed to Mercury (eloquence, shrewdness, swiftness), and can also mean 'spirited', so you can simultaneously insult and compliment someone with this world.

Now I know why the caged Snag drinks.
