“Did we get any Romnyan letters in the Ryamney mail this week?” Professor Plum asked.

As if he didn’t already know. (More)

Professor Plum then left with Ms. Scarlet to join the resident faculty in the wine cellar library, where they’ll spend the weekend drinking thinking on our motto of Magis vinum, magis verum (“More wine, more truth”). Meanwhile, the Professor of Astrology Janitor reviewed his account in the staff poker game and found he is running behind for the year. He suggested raising the blinds to two and four cents so he could catch up, and Chef was about to agree until the Squirrel reminded her that the stakes were based on the macadamia exchange rate. Chef sided with the Squirrel, a which point the Professor of Astrology Janitor began his plaintive mewling. Chef headed to the kitchen to make Egg White and White Cheddar Omelets, leaving your lowly mail room clerk to review the week’s correspondence….


Dear Ms. Crissie,

I would like to introduce my choice for the next President of the United States, Paul Ryan! Well, every now and then I’ve been known to make a mistake. For example, in December I said I would make changes to Medicare like the ones Paul Ryan proposed. In March I said I was very supportive of his budget, and in April I said it was marvelous. But I’m running for office, for pete’s sake, so I will be putting together my own plan to cut the deficit. I’ll also repeal President Obama’s cuts to Medicare providers. And before you object that my running mate proposed the same cuts in his budget, of course he and I won’t agree on every issue, even when I say I would make the same changes as him and I’m very supportive of his marvelous budget. And don’t ask any more questions about my business or family or taxes or things of that nature. We’ve told you people all you need to know and it’s our turn now.

Mitt in La MANHCA

Dear Mitt,

We suggest the American people will decide where you really stand on Rep. Ryan’s budget plan, as well as what questions they want you to answer and whose turn it is to be president. However, we agree that every now and then you’ve been known to make a mistake … if “every now and then” is read to mean “every time you speak.”


Dear Ms. Crissie,

Does Chef put anything green in her Egg White and White Cheddar Omelets? Republicans are all about the green stuff, after all. Unless it’s broccoli. But I like broccoli. Can I add that?

Dear Chromatically Hungry,

Yes, Chef does add 1 Tbsp of chopped green onion and 2 Tbsps of chopped green pepper to the 3 egg whites and ½ cup of shredded white cheddar cheese that she uses to make Egg White and White Cheddar Omelets. She sometimes substitutes chopped broccoli for the green pepper, and we assure you those tastes blend well also. Bon appétit!



Mitt in La MANHCA; make changes like the ones Paul Ryan proposed; very supportive of Ryan budget; Ryan budget marvelous; running for office, for pete’s sake; will be putting together his own plan; repeal Medicare provider cuts; no more questions about business or family or taxes or things of that nature; we’ve told you people all you need to know; it’s our turn now.


Happy Sunday!
