This could be an
excellent moment to re-open The Ramses Schism. A popular
subject I know, and certain to bring on some interesting
exchanges, followed by an hour or so debating the
minutiae as each party attempts to out flank each other
in order to achieve a sort of intellectual pecking order
with feathered headdress in the winners circle. There
are names for it, and The Glass Bead Game is as polite a
name as any.
On the other hand I
could mention the two cigarettes I so thoroughly enjoyed
smoking yesterday, which means this day of the year is
another "Day One" in a series of repeating Day One's. It's a
phenomenon I guess, and like all phenomena it needs a title.
A good solid welcome to hell kind of word, and for some
reason "Beatitude Day" begins to ring because "Magister Ludi
Day" would be way too aggravating.
