Digging on the Nice

It's been sooo long, I know. All is well and active, and I'll assume you've been too busy to notice the lapse on my part.

Today is the birthday of Ranier Maria Rilke (1875-1926), a German poet I first read in college and whose work figures prominently in the manuscript I HAVE AN AGENT to represent!

In honor of all nice things, because I'm generally feeling nice-ish these days, here is the list of Baskin-Robbins original 31 Flavors and this awesome picture of a unicorn.

Banana Nut Fudge, Black Walnut, Burgundy Cherry, Butter Pecan, Butterscotch Ribbon, Chocolate, Chocolate Almond, Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Fudge, Chocolate Ribbon, Coffee, Coffee Candy, Date Nut, Egg Nog, French Vanilla, Green Mint, Lemon Crisp, Lemon Custard, Lemon Sherbet, Maple Walnut, Orange Sherbet, Peach, Peppermint Fudge, Peppermint Stick, Pineap ple Sherbet, Pistachio Nut, Raspberry Sherbet, Rocky Road, Strawberry, Vanilla, and Vanilla Burnt Almond.

I can't think of Rilke w/out thiking of Heidegger, LOL! Or "Bruce the Philospher's Song" from Eric Idle.

Immanuel Kant was a real pissant,
who was very rarely stable.
Heidegger, Heidegger was a boozy beggar,
who could think you under the table !

David Hume could outconsume
Schopenhauer and Hegel
And Wittgenstein was a beery swine,
who was just as sloshed as Schegel.

Congrats on the agentification! Brava! I'm so happy for you.

You must sense the verse in the air. I'll have lots more in the few days to come.
