do. not. want. (from work1)

6:04 AM 1/8/2008
Misheard yesterday: someone said "a can of whup-ass." I of course heard "a can of whipped [indistinct]", so I spent a few baffled moments trying to connect the general concepts "whipped FOO" and the "ass" from "whup-ass". In general, "a can of whipped ass" (spray-can foam) ... do not want?
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
