Ichthyomancy

Fortune-telling with fish offal :O

I'm not sure how you do this, so I'm open to suggestions.|

My best guess is that the older the offal, the more likely
you are to make an unexpected deposit.:D


Cheers

[b][pre]Well, gyromancy didn't do much for my fortunes this week,
in fact a short stay in hospital has somewhat depleted them. :(

Where do those hard spaces come from dude.

Do you type it up somewhere else first?

It's because his Apple II screen is only 40 characters wide. :D

Billy T have you been sick? youve been in hospital you say ?
hope you are feeling better now,

and the likely hood of being able to tell something of future or past fortune's may be sorely tested due to amount of smell wouldnt you say?

and if it was told i feel it would be short and straight to the point dont you? like maybe you stink? or something?


:D

have a nice weekend all.

I wonder what the fish think of it? ?:|

I suppose they feel really gutted. :D

I'm glad it was only a short stay in hospital, hope you are recovering well.

Cheers. :)

Billy T....that's an offal way to look into the future :O

P.J and I hope you feel better now...maybe you can "scale" new heights:p

I think it must be something at his end seeing as it stays in the same position even though there is now a "Re: " added to the front. So it can't be to do with spacing for width reasons.

Well, I will have to try this one the next opportunity I get - there is no shortage of smelly fish offal around here during the summer. If it works I could even stockpile some in the freezer for the leaner winter months. :D


Actually, now that I remember, I think I did have a rather successful fortune-telling session that last time I accidentally took some smelly "fish bait" out of the freezer instead of the beef stew that I thought was in that container. I accurately predicted that I wasn't cooking the tea that night! :p :D


> Where do those hard spaces come from dude.

Yes, I believe that Billy does but it is strange that it produces those spaces. It didn't use to.

"Hope you have recovered from your quick stay in hospital Billy,
and that the nurses looked after you better than I do. :-)

It is something in the PF1 programming robo, it doesn't matter whether you enter the text manually or copy and paste, it inserts a line break at about the same position every time (after the 30th character and where the subject field inserts a line break). Usually I can rework the text to put it where it won't be noticed.

I don't think it is just me, I use three different computers to post WFTWE and I've seen it on other posts too. The reason it appears to turn up more on my posts is that I write an intro to every WFTWE and tend to use all of the available space.

Cheers

[b][pre]Thanks to those who enquired after my health,
it was day-stay surgery for a minor complaint and
the main injury is to my bank balance. I'll be sitting
on the edge of my seat for a few weeks though :O

I trust it wasn't a tummy upset Billy.

Stay on top.

When any transportation system gets a certain number of Km under its belt Murray, it is not uncommon to find that a pitstop for exhaust pipe repairs is advisable to deal with rust growths and other irritating faults.:8}
After a day in the shop (and a blow to the wallet) one can look forward to many more years of reliable service.

Cheers

[b][pre]No flowers Sis ?:| :_|
Must have been something I said. :(

> No flowers Sis

Oh Billy, I am so sorry! :O

I didn't know you like getting flowers. After all, you haven't spent much time in hospital before and the opportunities for sending you flowers have not been that profuse, and the last time I gave flowers to a bloke I was told in no uncertain terms that chocolates would be far more welcome than flowers. :8}

With that lesson hard learnt I was going to send you a chocolate fish. A box of chocolate fish, in fact. And they would be rather appropriate for this thread, wouldn't they? :D

Here you go:

<*)))))><{ <*)))))><{ <*)))))><{ <*)))))><{ <*)))))><{


And just in case you still want the flowers, you can have those too. :-)

Oh gosh Sis, I am so touched :8}

I wasn't complaining, really I wasn't. I mean, if I didn't make it offishal, how could you have known? I feel really offal. :(

Chocolate fish and flowers, now I am spoilt. :D

I am well on the mend so there is no need for concern.

Cheers

Bet you are pleased you have that behind you now.

Those things can be a pain in the bum sometimes.

Bet the surgery cost piles though.

Cheers, and a speedy recovery

A single rose is more appropriate for us blokes.

ROTFLMAO

(At great personal risk I might add, and contrary to the surgeon's advice.)

Loved the extra flowers Susan :8}
