most of you probably have nary a clue what the word katzenjammer means, and your knowledge of the oldest comic strip still in circulation, the katzenjammer kids, is in all likelihood even more woeful.
the word itself is from the german for 'cat's wail,' but it is also used to describe a state of severe depression, or a hangover.
A German fellow by the name of Rudolph Dirks debuted the katzenjammer kids comic strip in the now defunct New York Journal in 1897, but it has persisted in various venues to this day. How? Why? Who? Shut up. Stop asking so many questions.
Try as nurse might, she can't figure out in what sense the word katzenjammer is being used in reference to these kids, so she's going to just go with hangover. These kids are drunk all the time, they don't give a hoot, and they wreak havoc amongst all and sundry. Look how cute they are! They don't care whose toes they step on.
if you do not know her work, you are highly encouraged to look her up.
let's all stop moaning about air travel. you sit in a capsule and get transported to a different time zone, and you are permitted to drink. what's wrong with a little patdown now and then? it's really only the detainment, fingerprinting, eyescans, various kinds of harrassments by federal agents, and subsequent entry bans that nurse really objects to.
for the nice italian gentleman that nurse met at the caledonian, on queen street west, where the haggis fritters simply can't be beat
have you ever been to Milano? it's not just a delicious mint cookie, you know.
Last I saw of ol Rooster here was in Hell's Kitchen, just as I was abandoning him. Hopefully he has gotten better at reading people, and not been mauled to death by the local pigeon populace.
Still, I have a feeling he's fared better than ol Penguin, who definitely didn't have the cojones to make it on his own in gotham. He was a kept bird, that one: in days of yore I used to bring him along on my travels up and down Manhattan, to decorate the bars. Maybe it is my fault he got soft, so sue me. I couldn't be his everything forever.
