I appreciate the straight fishhook. It’s a work of genius. It means that the fish won’t be able to kill themselves on it – well, unless they try really hard, which is quite possible, because some fishes can be very stupid – anyhow, where was I? Oh, yes. Straight fishhook. Good idea.

The only problem with it is that I don’t catch any fish.

I’m sure that this is all symbolic of some great spiritual question, and I will be thinking about it till I next see you. But in the meantime, I appreciate the straight fishhook.

Off fishing,

I wonder if I can get an unholy bronze toaster into my writing somewhere.

Yes, my brain is dead.

Yes, I need to sleep if I'm to catch the 7.40am train tomorrow morning. (And sleep on it. Even if I have packed knitting, books, and DS in my bag.)


As he entered the Nine Hall Court, Grand Old Master saw inch-thick dust and the mountain-high unread memos. He pointed to the unholy bronze toaster in the corner and asked, "What is it?"

Bunchuu glared at Raphael. "I have been told that you are the only one who can heal my paopei."

"Do I want to know what a paopei is?" Raphael asked. "It sounds like something you'd find in a woman's private drawers."

"Insolence!" Bunchuu snorted. "It is my whip."

"Case proven," Raphael said.

Bunchuu took several deep breaths through clenched teeth. "The lash is broken. You are the Archangel of Healing. Do something."

"Let me see." Raphael examined the whip. "Ah."


Raphael sighed. "I've reknitted broken bones before, but this is the first time I will have reknitted a whip."

Requested Topic: Can I have Taikoubou and Fugen (Taigong and Puxian in Chinese, I don't know which version you read)
I was seeing something before the series...

Somewhere, there was a garden.

Somewhere in the garden, there were peach trees.

Somewhere under the peach trees, two immortals who look like young men were drinking wine.

"You see," Fugen said, "this is a learning experience for you."

Taikoubou blinked owlishly. "How?"

"Because for the last few decades you've been learning how to move monsters, how to ride magical beings, how to fly through the air, how to use paopei, and how to fight."


"So today you're learning how to get drunk in a peach orchard."

"Is that appropriate?"

"I think it is," Fugen said, refilling their cups.
