Gut Rumbles

December 05, 2003

okay, she's in

The poser has posted.

Which one was it?


Now that I think about it

Posted by: Ms Anna on December 5, 2003 04:48 PM

I rescind that first gut reaction, but you did use goddamn, twice, Acidman.

Daydream in Plot is the imposter's.

Posted by: Ms Anna on December 5, 2003 04:54 PM

"just so you know"
Gets my vote.
Basketball practice?
Church play?
You've never mentioned those before that I know of.
And it's not goddamn, it got-damn.
But that would make 2 posts...?

daydreaming in plot gets my vote.

This line looks suspicious to me "Got-dam!! Every testosterone-ridden youth in that classroom fought a woody on a daily basis"

I've been reading your blog for a while now and I really enjoy it. My father's family is in Georgia and though I'm a born and raised yankee, your blog is little bit like going home for me.

I agree with MS Anna and it is "Daydream in Plot." One reason is the use of hyphens, though similar, just a bit different. The other is the style is close but not you. If we guess correctly, do we win a prize?

Posted by: Jackie on December 5, 2003 05:12 PM

Yep, Daydream in plot. Tone shift too obvious.

You familiar with the phrase "shooting fish in a barrel"?

There's only three options, and one contains personal knowledge of your 92-year-old grandmother.

You took the fun out of it.

Key, you just don't like to lose.

Key, if I was doing the challenge, I would have written a story about a relative of his and made crap up.

That's the surest way to match his stuff ... ( hehe ).

Posted by: Robin Roberts on December 5, 2003 05:25 PM

Key, if it makes you feel any better, Spit-cups was almost my choice, instead of Daydreaming in Plot. Maybe I shouldn't have jumped in so quick with my guess. I would have thought that his Mommy would be a smoker.

He tried to give you a chance with the goddamn instead of the got-damn, though.

Posted by: Ms Anna on December 5, 2003 05:26 PM

If YOU weren't AFRAID of losing, you wouldn't have boxed me in with only TWO other options.

ONE about your grandmother and ONE about your dog!

You were supposed to slip it in with NO notice whatsoever.

Gut Readers,
Admit it.
It would have worked with no heads up.

About the piece:
A published author talked to me about "daydreaming in plot." And I really have given it a lot of thought. Today, I gave it some thought from Rob's perspective. ; )

Posted by: Key on December 5, 2003 05:28 PM

Key, I also apologize for mentioning the two goddamn's in my second post. That might have been overlooked.

Posted by: Ms Anna on December 5, 2003 05:29 PM

My vote -- Just So you Know

Dave S. is mention ever of Quinton's BB skills and/or acting ability.

Posted by: drex35 on December 5, 2003 05:32 PM

...okay, point taken, it may have behooved me to hold off on the confession. ; )

Posted by: Key on December 5, 2003 05:36 PM

Key, I think you did a pretty good job. Without the head's up, I wouldn't have checked the times he posted. Acidman takes longer than 9 minutes to knock out an entry as long as Daydreaming a Plot.

He's previous entry, Just So You Know was at 3:35 p.m.

Daydreaming a Plot was posted at 3:44 p.m. That's really what tipped me off between the choice of Spit-cup and Daydreaming...

He should have waited about 35 minutes before posting your entry, then delayed his last two entries, accordingly.

Now that I think about it... was posted at 3:56 p.m.

Spit-cup was posted at 4:29 p.m.

Does that mean that he cheated, just a little bit?

Now, have I totally pissed you off, Acidman?

Posted by: Ms Anna on December 5, 2003 05:43 PM

No, it wouldn't have worked without a heads up. It's obvious to anyone who knows Rob's writing style.

I wouldn't confuse Lileks with another writer, either. Everyone has their own style. Learn it, and it's easy to find.

Posted by: Mr. Lion on December 5, 2003 05:44 PM

Acidman has mentioned basketball practice before.

Posted by: Ms Anna on December 5, 2003 05:45 PM

Jennifer messed up Rob's plans with Quinton for that weekend, too. About a month ago.

Posted by: Ms Anna on December 5, 2003 05:47 PM

spit cups is the phoney

Posted by: brad on December 5, 2003 06:13 PM

My money is on the dog.

Posted by: Steve H. on December 5, 2003 06:16 PM

To me, spit cups sounded nothing at all like you.

Posted by: Jay Solo on December 5, 2003 06:58 PM

I vote for Spit Cups

Posted by: Ralph Gizzip on December 5, 2003 07:08 PM

I vote Spit Cups

Posted by: DeAnna on December 5, 2003 07:54 PM

Plot. No-brainer.

Posted by: Hank on December 5, 2003 07:55 PM

Spit-cups. I said so under that post, too.
Just doesn't 'read' like you.
Unless, of course, you referred to your Grandmother as 'Mommie' (for the first time that I can find) for another reason....?

Posted by: Stevie on December 5, 2003 08:04 PM


You love dogs. The odd crap-on-the-floor might annoy you but not totally put you off dogs.

Once a dog lover, always a dog love. I know; I've got three.

Posted by: Jim Riley on December 5, 2003 08:08 PM

April 6th-another 'Mommie' reference...I just found it.
But, I still say 'Spitcups' doesn't sound like you. (I do have a way to describe what it sounds like, but I'll keep mum on that, in case I'm And,'s nothing bad about the 'other' writer.)

Posted by: Stevie on December 5, 2003 08:11 PM

"Just so you know" is a fake.

Posted by: warmi on December 5, 2003 08:17 PM

Acidman talked about his Mommie, grandmother, the weekend before Thanksgiving. He and Quinton spent time at his mother's house and Mommie came over from next door to visit, too. Jack was gone for the weekend.

Posted by: Ms Anna on December 5, 2003 09:04 PM

This is clearly, THE DOG.

Remember the ghost writer said "All I've got to do is rant and cuss the way you do," .

Acidman cusses in the appropriate manner and place. THE DOG post does neither (too much cussing in the wrong places).

And he'd never question, "Why the hell did I get a goddam dog?". He might say "Why the hell did I get THIS goddam dog", but that's not what was posted. Must be a kitty-lover.

Ok, She's In is the "poser's post."

Posted by: jb on December 5, 2003 09:46 PM

No brainer: the "sneaky little fuck" dog one, which speaks as your double negative from the dark side. But, you asshole, while trying to get to these comments to post, your link caused my mouse arrow to have seizures, a strange squeeking noise came from my speakers as the arrow shook, and I was informed that I had to close some windows, which I could not do since my whole computer was paralyzed. This persisted for 10 minutes. I wonder what else you might have "gotten away with" in my absence, and am now examining every iota in my apartment to see what you did in my absence. So far I have only found a pair of stained boxer shorts which are much too small for me, but I will try them on anyway.

Dreaming in Plot - Acidman just doesn't write about dreams and plots. He's too earthy for that kind of fru-fru.

Also, Miss Beautiful Green Eyes is a GOT-awful name. He would have come up with something catchier and more descriptive, IMO.

Gratitude is merely the secret hope of further favors.
