You know, the closeup of Megan with the T. Minimus would have been practically subliminal in conventional video but allowed time for dozens of comments here.

With the rather low frame rate we're watching, it wouldn't put a strain on our eyes if the OTC interlaced frames of the castle (with children), and frames of the further adventures of M&C. (The various GIFs might get painful, later...)

I hope for a two channel timesplit:

Castles - newpix every hour on the hour - (guest stars: le-petit, the sea (which is BIG), flag hunters, judges of the sandcastles-building competition 300 yards down the beach)

AND

Following C&M - with a newpix every half past the hour - on their journey to the river (which is... you know... size challenged), meeting a wise man who knows the sea, a maiden who once made the sea do whatever SHE wanted, and the sandcastles, once again, after doing a little swimming and realizing that the sea is not THAT big after all.

I'm sure that sorting the images will be loads of fun for some talented people.

yeah, English doesn't quite work like that, you can rarely call someone directly by an adjective ( I have seen it for deminutives, "fatty" or "cutie" would be equivalent to "Gordinho" and "Lindinho" in Portuguese. but there is no "littlie" in English. the other way is to call the person (or thing) by the (indefinite?) pronoun "one" use an adjective on that (little one, smart one (of course smarty exists), etc)


I always called my daughter "Little Girl" before she was born (and that among an assortment of other endearments afterwards) but I was delighted to hear my native New Zealander friend calling her son "Little-ie" (Littlie? Little-y?). So maybe it's just American English that lacks that.

And time did NOT end.

Although I feel pretty secure claiming that it IS the end of not only a period, but an entire era.

I believe that we'll stay with the castle and thus it's the end of the Megan&Cueball era. What the new era will be about, is unknown.
My prediction is that after a few newpix of raising sea level, something new will arrive. Whether it'll be other humans, seagulls or raptors, I don't dare to predict.

Of course, we could also follow Megan&Cueball and it'll be the end of the sandcastle era (or both), but I find this unlikely.

Let's see... 361 is 19 squared... also is a centered triangular number, a centered octagonal number, a centered decagonal number, a member of the Mian–Chowla sequence, and the number of positions on a standard 19 x 19 Go board.

I'm so much smarter sounding when wikipedia's around.

I think I have a new favorite series of numbers, the centered octagonal series. It's just so convenient and elegant, all the squares of odd integers...

But if you want those treats, tread the thread with care, cause tears may cause tears!

Oven-fresh! So many scrumptious baked goods!

Oh, and I finally figured out what those tears were all about:
Ebonite wrote:Wouldn't it be interesting if, for example, in the next time interval, while we're all paying attention to what this new arrival La Petite is doing in the present, Cueball suddenly reappeared back in frame 675 and caught Megan when she fell out of the bucket? And how would this affect Cueball-675, sitting on the upper level of the sandcastle, watching his future self appear out of nowhere and do this?

Why, this could completely rip the fabric of time. And what would it do to our beloved Blitzgirl as she's traveling rapidly through time when she hits one of these tears at full speed? She may never have the chance to encounter the original timestream as she's diverted down the new timestream as it's rewritten dynamically. . .

I certainly hope no TimeTears await me in the future! (Or in the past!)

In conclusion, a few more pastposts:

Thank you, AK49BWL! :)

Dear BlitzGirl,

Sorry for this LongPost. I know you read it ALL and this post will have cost you some Time. My sincerest apologies! I will make sure the Croissants are not stale when you arrive to the present(s)!
(and also my apologies for the whole 'let's spur BlitzGirl on by deleting the Thread behind her' post! I do not think you are too slow, I was merely extracting some comedy out of the situation! hope you liked it!)

My most sincerest regards!

I thought it was funny :D - one of my titles is Blitzrandir, after all!

Wait, Gone? you mean like Gone gone? She isn't really Gone gone, is she? She's just gone, but not gone gone, right? They will be coming back again, right? .. Right?!?
