Under The Floorboards: The Case Of The Missing Co-Blogger


Let's take a quick look at the facts here.

We have three psychiatrist co-bloggers and what do we know:

dinah is a mini-van sports mom (albeit a reluctant Snack Parent) who owns a personable dog with limited wants. She does psychotherapy in a solo private practice, works in a hospital-based community mental health center, and loves hot fudge sundaes. She will ride a segway at the request of a friend, but so far has not gone for Wall Climbing.

ClinkShrink works in a prison, used to own cats (who are mysteriously now dead by means not related to their gifted giblets), has a fascination with serial sex murders, is a walking encyclopedia of criminal history and torture, invited a man named FooFoo whom she's never met to vacation with her at a Russian Prison Camp, and looks like a nun (her self description, furthered by the fact that she doesn't do hair chemicals). If that's not enough, she posts links to costumes for guinea pigs (this just isn't normal, folks).

Roy is a smart computer geek who loves the ironic side of pop culture, works under a pile of disorganized papers, and fancies himself a victim of ADHD (prodded along by his wife who really just wants him to pick up his dirty socks--or so that's the story I've written) and self-medicates with Sudafed. He's an overworked shrink in an understaffed department trying to eek out a living.

Roy disappears.

Why, I want to know, does everyone want to look under MY floor boards.
" What has dinah done with Roy?"
I've seen it more than once, I've even seen it on someone else's blog.

I guarantee, if you dig up my floor boards, you'll find moldy chicken nuggets and apple sauce (no added sugar). If you dig up Clink's floor boards: who knows.

I am, I contend, innocent until proven guilty, and perplexed as to why I'd even be considered a suspect.

Heeyyyy, how come I don't get described as a 'smart computer geek'? Sheesh, that's the last time I ever help you upgrade your browser.

As to why everybody wants to look under your floorboards, that's a great question. Anyone who knows you would know to look in your crawlspace with the dead raccoon or in your trunk with the dead watermelon. Floorboards are passe.

Besides, everybody knows the best way to hide a body is to put it in longterm storage. Just remember to pay your storage fees. (The link goes to a story that also has relevance to confessions.)

Didn't you read clink's post on confessions?

To quote Superman, "Confession is good for the soul; I'd listen to this man" (er, woman). Something like that.

I have 4 week old kittens Clinkshrink can have in a few weeks!!! They are the cutest things. They are likely to have HUGE tails (main coons) and the best kitty dispositions.

They are sweet, and cuddly, and well behaved. Everyone loves my kitty cats.

Two (one male, one female) are black tabby (like the beautiful regal Daddy) and the other female is white with black spots, like her older brother from a previous litter.

Really clinkshrink ...ya really would love them! 1 ...2 ... 3 ...

I'd be happy to let you have them!
*grin*

Under our floorboards are cobwebs and under them a basement with far far too much stuff. Anyone want 34 powersupplies to who-knows-whats? An old Mac? A shovel with a broken blade? A body sized tangle of Christmas lights that don't work? A complete habi-trail? A vacum that almost works?

ClinkShrink said...

Aughh, no, not the cute kitties! Anything but the cute kitties! I confess---I'd rather have the comfy chair. Cardinal Fang! Fetch...THE COMFY CHAIR!

JW, how old is your Mac? My Mac Plus turned 20 last month.

PK - Can I have a kitty? Tony needs a playmate so that he stops biting ME!! I gave him canned food last night and he was all excited and ate half of it. Then he lovingly sat on my lap for a little while. Then he bit me. And as I grabbed the scruff of his neck and said, "NO. BAD! No biting!" He hissed!!! That little.......

He can be so sweet, but then such a terror! I don't get it.... I really think he needs therapy. LOL

Maybe another kitty would help... ;)

Dinah,
Let me out of here!

clinkshrink: How old? Hmmm It's a Power PC-60 running system 7.5 ... How old is that ... I can't remember. I gave a Mac+ to my stepson who uses it as a door stop ... pity as it still works just fine as does our old Mac.

Please include proper instructions for emailing kittens. They do not fit into the CD drive ...

Years ago there was a famous night long discussion on how to email a fish. I was on the edge of it and remember it quite well. It's funny how some spur-of-the-moment things can become famous.
