Emi Ha offered an entry for the Guide to Dathonian English (hereafter, GDE). Whatever that happy/orgasmic/excited person is experiencing, I want some of that. Or, "I'll have what she's having" ("When Harry Met Sally"). Keep those suggestions coming, folks.
This week's special is supposed to be Star Trek and cereal, and the Solipsist realizes he hasn't mentioned either, yet. And cereal enthusiasts probably feel a bit short-changed at the relative lack of attention compared to the extravagant number of words lavished on Star Trek. So, um, cereal, let's see. . . .
When did folks come up with the idea of marshmallows for cereal? And do those things in Lucky Charms actually COUNT as marshmallows? They've always struck the Solipsist as having more the consistency of Pez, only chewier. Maybe some Kellogg's magnate accidentally spilled Pez into some oat flakes one day. Must have been quite the Reese's moment.
OK, look, the Solipsist apologizes, but he just can't quite work up the passion for cereal that he can summon for Star Trek. Although he HAS just remembered a fun, cereal-related exchange (actual) from his days as a college student:
One English major to another: (Exasperatedly) You know, there's more variety in breakfast cereal than in Shakespeare!
Other English major to first English major: (Not missing a beat) Yes, and there's more riboflavin in one bowl of raisin bran than in all the works of Kafka combined!
No, the Solipsist didn't come up with that one. Sad to say. Thought you might get a kick out of it, though.
