182nd Temporal Tuesday - 25 December

This Tuesday was Christmas so everyone stayed home. However Mr. Rusty Monkey did survive the end of the world the Friday before.

************************************************************************************ Thursday, 20 December ************************************************************************************ @mrrustymonkey: * a monkey doll wakes up on #TemporalTues/ Wednesday & looks @ his special countdown clock. It says... 1 day, 11hrs, 11mins & 11secs *

‏@mrrustymonkey: * he quickly gathers up a bag filled with #TemporalTues horns & sparklers & all sorts of "trick" items, & then skips downstairs to wait *

@mrrustymonkey: * in the #TemporalTues conservatory, he drools over a yummy caramel cake. it's sitting on the table next to bottle a champagne *

@mrrustymonkey: * this #TemporalTues table is also covered with odd survival books & tools - even a tiny "bug out" kit, complete with a box of crayons *

‏@mrrustymonkey: * with a tiny piece of orgone in 1 hand & his miniature bible in the other, he takes his seat ... on the #TemporalTues time machine *

@mrrustymonkey: Today on this #TemporalTues, into the internet I delve! Is it the last week on earth, 2012? ;-)

‏@mrrustymonkey: Where are the signs #TemporalTues, will they come from the sky? Will the earth just disappear in the blink of an eye?

@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues, will God start His game over - go back to begin? Or will He be merciful & let this human race win?

@mrrustymonkey: Who am I #TemporalTues, just a toy chimpanzee... or one of those apes from 2001's Space Odyssey?

‏@mrrustymonkey: Where's that obelisk #TemporalTues? Is there an alien from Lisan? Is all of this some grand, intergalactic plan?

@mrrustymonkey: Should we count it down #TemporalTues, or start counting again? Are these doomsday prophesies just a popular trend?

@mrrustymonkey: * looks at his #TemporalTues countdown clock again, it says 11 hrs 11 mins & 11 secs *

@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues, there are so many things that we're trying to avoid. One of them, at least, is a giant asteroid...

‏@mrrustymonkey: ... or maybe a planet #TemporalTues. They call it Nibiru. Is this the 13th b'ak 'tun? Did the Mayans really have a clue?

‏@mrrustymonkey: Is this the Rapture #TemporalTues? Will our souls lift into the sky? Is the tribulation coming? Oh no, I'm gonna cry. :-(

@mrrustymonkey: * looks @ his #TemporalTues countdown clock again. it says 1 hr 11 mins & 11 secs *

@mrrustymonkey: * opens his #TemporalTues crayon box & picks out some appropriate colors for doodling @ the end of the world *

‏@mrrustymonkey: * begins to color a final #TemporalTues picture, using his "Aztec gold" "rainforest" & "fresh air" crayons. *

‏@mrrustymonkey: * then, he digs out his #TemporalTues "outer space" "deep space sparkle " & "cosmic cobalt" crayons. *

@mrrustymonkey: * he finishes off his #TemporalTues picture with the "smoke," "dirt" & "shadow" crayons *

‏@mrrustymonkey: * looks @ his #TemporalTues countdown clock one last time. it says 1 min & 11 secs *

‏@mrrustymonkey: Oh #TemporalTues time machine, if this is the end of the world, let the maestro sing... View media...

Friday, 21 December
@mrrustymonkey: * it's 11 #TemporalTues secs past 11:11 UT ( or 6:11 am his time ) on 12/21/12. he opens his crooked glass eyes with apprehension *

‏@mrrustymonkey: I am still here! Yes, I knew it #TemporalTues. ;-) I am still here. !!!!!!!!!!! *********** !!!!!!!!!!!

‏@mrrustymonkey: * gets up from the #TemporalTues table & runs to the mirror. his reflection shows the same old monkey face, unchanged *

@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues, My Oh My! What a joyous surprise! No signs of reptilian alien eyes! ;-)

@mrrustymonkey: Nor do I have wings #TemporalTues? Nope, just some fading mohair. Nothing happened! Wait, somehow this doesn't seem fair?

‏@mrrustymonkey: I'm embarrassed #TemporalTues! I could just crawl off & spit! There's no such thing as a zombie apocalypse!

@mrrustymonkey: I was duped #TemporalTues! Yes, I fell for the hoax! Why are monkeys always the butts of these jokes?

@mrrustymonkey: * opens up his #TemporalTues crayon box & pours out some crayons to reflect his new "mood ring" on life *

@mrrustymonkey: * doodles with his "Pixie Feet" crayon * @thisbear warned that I should stop listening to #TemporalTues pixies @ the bottom of the garden!

‏@mrrustymonkey: * starts coloring with the "Magic Potion" "Illuminating Emerald" & "Bittersweet Shimmer" #TemporalTues crayons *

@mrrustymonkey: * gets out his "Sea Serpent" "Sasquatch Socks" & "Big Foot Feet" crayons & gives #TemporalTues the raspberries * ;-)

@mrrustymonkey: * puts back the "Ogre Odor" "Gargoyle Gas" & "Alien Armpit" crayons - cause they're just too smelly * Yuck #TemporalTues! * :-)

@mrrustymonkey: * takes a whiff of the "Fresh Air" "Wintergreen Dream" & "Twilight Lavender" crayons & starts to shut his #TemporalTues eyes again *

‏@mrrustymonkey: Oh #TemporalTues time machine... I will see you again in my dreams, it seems... #end…;-)



181st Temporal Tuesday - 18 December

************************************************************************************ Saturday, 15 December ************************************************************************************ @vonHogflume: #TemporalTues I have returned from Hawaii as I learned that 2012 Britain has warmed up. 8.5 degrees C today, not -5 as last Tuesday!

************************************************************************************ Tuesday, 18 December ************************************************************************************ @lousmom313: @Wendell_Howe it's @ladyrainbow 's birthday, so I'm taking her and @theladywrites and @korikatra to a Carribean island to R and R!

************************************************************************************ @vonHogflume: #TemporalTues To 1912 when the Piltdown Man discovery was announced by Charles Dawson. I had to suppress a chuckle as it was a great hoax.

************************************************************************************ @Captain_Zaphod: #TemporalTues Ate 6 bags of popcorn today - time traveling twice to watch the rest of the Hobbit trilogy. Spoiler alert! Smaug dies.



180th Temporal Tuesday - 11 December

‏@vonHogflume: #TemporalTues I am going to Hawaii in summer 1970 to warm up on the beach. It is too cold in Britain in December 2012.

************************************************************************************ ‏@mrrustymonkey: * it's a cold day in the #TemporalTues twitterverse. a car door opens & a monkey doll steps out, reluctantly. *

‏@mrrustymonkey: * he heads straight for the #TemporalTues gym, that's connected to Doesn't Really Matter Junior High. *

‏@mrrustymonkey: * he spies an empty section of the #TemporalTues bleachers & climbs to his perch. he pulls out his study papers as he waits for the bell. *

  ‏@mrrustymonkey: * this introspective seat on the bleachers of life seems to always be his seat on the #TemporalTues time machine. *

@mrrustymonkey: Today on this #TemporalTues, you're so sadly self centered. You greatly irritate me! It's 1980.

@mrrustymonkey: You're so childish #TemporalTues, wearing ONLY name brands. You prance & you flirt, as I sit quietly in the stands.

‏@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues, you gossip too much & you hang out in cliques. You pretend to be "metro" yet you come from the sticks. ‏

@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues, you're all surface level & plastic, as shallow as can be. I need friends with depth of character around me.

@mrrustymonkey: *suddenly, he flashes forward to present day. he's sitting @ the dining room table, waiting for the #TemporalTues morning meeting to start*

‏@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues, you claim you're so smart but you're an illiterate fool. You use "like" every other word, as a general rule. ‏

@mrrustymonkey: You're too expensive #TemporalTues, in every possible way. No, I won't keep you around - not even one more day.

@mrrustymonkey: So goodbye #TemporalTues, you've lost your place at my table - another chapter in my book, an unfortunate fable. ‏

@mrrustymonkey: Have a nice life #TemporalTues, now be gone forever! * whispers * "Good luck in all your future endeavors." ;-) ‏

@mrrustymonkey: Oh #TemporalTues time machine, she is out of our lives. :-) It's time to sing! View media

@pinkbunnyr: @mrrustymonkey Rusty? No more #TemporalTues?

@mrrustymonkey: Oh dear, that wasn't what I meant @pinkbunnyr. I had drifted off into the past & was tweeting about someone/ something else. :-)

@mrrustymonkey: I love the #TemporalTues time machine @pinkbunnyr. Sometimes I like to remember the stressful times, so I can make sense of the present.

@mrrustymonkey: * there's an office chair sitting in the corner of one of the #TemporalTues bedrooms. it's his old editor's chair. he sits down & grins. *

@mrrustymonkey: * pssst... this is his seat on the #TemporalTues time machine ;-) *

@mrrustymonkey: Today on this #TemporalTues, having a business in our home… it must to be our fate? It's this year, this very date.

@mrrustymonkey: Here we go again #TemporalTues. We've been down this road before. We're old hats at this point, but who's keeping score.

@mrrustymonkey: It's an old idea #TemporalTues, but we'll revive it again. We'll adapt to these times. Maybe spin it & win?

@mrrustymonkey: ...for this new phase of life #TemporalTues! Retirement never seems to last. You see, my friend, we get bored so fast.

@mrrustymonkey: * he scratches his monkey head, trying to think everything out. then he spins around in his #TemporalTues chair until he feels dizzy. *

@mrrustymonkey: We'll need more techies for the net. We'll need a sharp COO. Oh, & by the way #TemporalTues...before I go...

@mrrustymonkey: …can I hang onto this feeling #TemporalTues, my wide eyed start off anew? No matter 'bout tomorrow, today's a bright, sunny hue! :-)

@mrrustymonkey: My world is changing #TemporalTues. Privacy exchanged for control. I hope the chaos in our house won't take a high toll?

‏@vonHogflume: #TemporalTues 1842 - a pleasant trip to Brighton by train to visit the Royal Pavillion. I did not see any of the royal family today.

@mrrustymonkey: * a Moravian Star porch light turns on, somewhere in the #TemporalTues twitterverse & a monkey doll scurries nervously about *

@mrrustymonkey: * he opens the door along the mezzanine & peeps out, watching for any #TemporalTues guests to step inside *

@mrrustymonkey: * outside, there are tables & chairs set up for a fabulous #TemporalTues party. the trees are illuminated in pastel colors, as always *

@mrrustymonkey: * the #TemporalTues guests begin to move about & there are sounds of glasses & dishes clinking. the band prepares for the 1st dance *

@mrrustymonkey: * once again, this "waiting chair" is his seat on the #TemporalTues time machine *

@mrrustymonkey: Today on this #TemporalTues, I'm feeling kinda grouchy. It's my old wedding slump. It's any weekend in the Spring / last month.

@mrrustymonkey: The $'s never enough #TemporalTues. I wish there was some other way... to save the old house & be able to stay.

@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues, the caterers steal food & always leave trash behind. And we loose precious days off / our only chance to unwind.

@mrrustymonkey: And #TemporalTues, tent rental trucks drive all over this yard! Watching their abuse is incredibly hard.

@mrrustymonkey: No one cares #TemporalTues, it's JUST a rental you see. They go home, leaving the destruction with me.

@mrrustymonkey: If I had teeth #TemporalTues, I would bite EVERY one! I'd run WILD through their reception & SPOIL all their fun!

@mrrustymonkey: This is MY house #TemporalTues. She's important to ME. We've made too many sacrifices for this jeweled property.

@mrrustymonkey: I'm makes me nervous #TemporalTues, but what can I do? I'll just sit here & wait this thing out with you.

@mrrustymonkey: Look @ that bridesmaid #TemporalTues, was her makeup put on with a trowel? Bet she'll remove it, later on, with my best towel!

‏@mrrustymonkey: Look @ that groomsmen #TemporalTues, he thinks he'll get lucky tonight. If he keeps grabbing that girl, there will soon be a fight!

@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues, now who is that funky, drunken baboon? Oh… it's just the "unleashed" step-father of another little groom.

@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues, now who is that grinning chimpanzee? Oh… I was looking in a mirror - it's just little old me! ;-)

@mrrustymonkey: Lock the display cases #TemporalTues! Hide the heirloom pieces! Remind me to bring them back out when this event finally ceases.

@mrrustymonkey: * takes a deep #TemporalTues breath, as he remembers all the answers to "why"… once again *

@mrrustymonkey: But EVERY time #TemporalTues… I look out these windows & say with great pride, "These years have been a most marvelous ride!"

@mrrustymonkey: This is the lifetime of sharing #TemporalTues. It's fun to let this place out. It's made many people happy, without any doubt.

@mrrustymonkey: And we have a museum #TemporalTues - a museum of OUR dreams. Those tourists like it too, so it seems. ;-)

@mrrustymonkey: So please forgive me #TemporalTues, now that's all off my chest. Besides, this event's almost over… let's enjoy the rest. :-)

@mrrustymonkey: * whispers to #TemporalTues * "My house is me & I am it…. & it looks like all of my dreams."

@mrrustymonkey: * he stares off into #TemporalTues space, remembering that very 1st time he saw the old house & :-) *

@mrrustymonkey: Oh #TemporalTues time machine, it's time for the last dance. It's time to sing …. View video

@mrrustymonkey: I wasn't THAT upset @BlindMaximus. I just had to tweet out my frustrations for #TemporalTues. I feel better now & it was indeed funny. :-)

@Willowbottom: On the 250th anniversary of the U.S. in 2026, Chia Pet will make commemorative busts of the signers. #MadeUpDeclarationOfIndependenceFacts

156th Temporal Tuesday - 26 June

@Wendell_Howe: It's #TemporalTues http://temporaltues.blogspot.com/ Where would you go in a time machine? (I would avoid the Big Bang, if I were you.)

@PlanetaryGoGo: @Wendell_Howe I'd probably travel back to King Alexander's time. I've always found it fascinating.

@Wendell_A_Howe: @PlanetaryGoGo King Alexander? Alexander the Great?

@PlanetaryGoGo: @Wendell_A_Howe Yeah

@wildfeather: Going back to 1881 for #temporaltues Not going anywhere, staying right here, so I can grab a quick tea with @Wendell_Howe in the backgarden

@wildfeather: Of course it's not a back garden then it's a delightful cricket pitch with a stream. clubhouse serves great creamtea & scones #temporaltues

‏@wildfeather: Gonna show him the road that Queen Elizabeth I rode along on her way to see Dudley. Wonder if Elizabeth IX will be interested? #temporaltues

@vonHogflume: #TemporalTues I enjoyed my campfire feast and singsong with some Neanderthal friends, but they just could not get "Row row row your boat".

@vonHogflume: #TemporalTues Ugg made a good tenor, while Igg was excellent with harmonies. It was spoilt a bit by Nogg's tone deafness.

@Jonessurname: @Wendell_Howe Will need a few flea bites along the way.

@Wendell_A_Howe: @Jonessurname If you get bit by Bubonic Plague fleas, you WILL need a stiff drink.

@Jonessurname: @Wendell_A_Howe In 1350 you also needed a stiff box, but very few around.

@scablander: In honor of the 150th #TemporalTues may I present a future adventure of @Wendell_Howe in the past: Carry On



149th Temporal Tuesday - 8 May

‏@vonHogflume: #TemporalTues When I read about a Parliament of Worms in 1521, I had to see it. It is not made of wriggly worms, sadly.

‏@mrrustymonkey: * a nursery school door opens in the #TemporalTues twitterverse & a monkey doll steps inside. he's carrying a box of crayons & paper *

‏@mrrustymonkey: * he hands them to the teacher & watches as she spreads them out across the #TemporalTues "mahogany" floor *

‏@mrrustymonkey: * he sits down on his little "red" floor mat, just like all the other children. this is his seat on the #TemporalTues time machine *

‏@mrrustymonkey: Today on this #TemporalTues we're coloring with crayons! Oh joy! It's so much fun! It's 1971. :-)

‏@mrrustymonkey: We're making a mural #TemporalTues for our "gray" nursery school wall. All the boys & girls are having a ball!

‏@mrrustymonkey: It's a Crayola world #TemporalTues on a giant "white" paper sheet! The teacher says, "Children, please keep your space neat."

‏@mrrustymonkey: But it's hard #TemporalTues with so many crayons, you see. There's a rainbow of fishes in our deep "navy blue" sea!

‏@mrrustymonkey: At the top #TemporalTues , there's a "sky blue" sky. We're adding swirls of "gold" & "silver" but we don't know why?

‏@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues the center's all "spring green" grass & trees. We add "brick red" tulips & "goldenrod" bumblebees!

‏@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues beside a "forest green" tree, we've drawn a "raw umber" log… & it's complete with an "olive green" bullfrog!

‏@mrrustymonkey: Something's missing #TemporalTues - something to swing from our trees? How 'bout some "bittersweet" monkeys, please!

‏@mrrustymonkey: * he imagines taking a few #TemporalTues bites out of the "apricot" & "melon" crayons, but puts them back down & grins *

‏@mrrustymonkey: Our memories are "sepia" & "maize" & so very "plum". Perhaps my #TemporalTues trip was a little bit dumb? :-)

‏@mrrustymonkey: But you see #TemporalTues , a box of crayons & some paper was our sweet & simple start... to a lifetime of creativity & a passion for art.

@mrrustymonkey: So thank you #TemporalTues for this colorful trip in time, when our world was a box of crayons & everything was " peri- ;-) -le " fine.

‏@mrrustymonkey: * he grabs up all of the #TemporalTues crayons & tosses them high into the "twitter blue" sky & :-) *

@mrrustymonkey: Oh #TemporalTues time machine, "Joy To Our Crayola World!" It's time to sing… View video



148th Temporal Tuesday - 1 May

@vonHogflume: #TemporalTues I am just back from 1751 after watching the first American cricket match being played. Not a very thrilling spectacle.

@Captain_Zaphod: #TemporalTues went back & invented the sub-etha net.

@ScotsSmiler: Bugger! Bad, bad landing! I just hope I'm in the right when #TemporalTues



147th Temporal Tuesday - 24 April

@Wendell_Howe: It's #TemporalTues Take a time machine anywhere/anywhen.

@BoArthur: @Wendell_Howe April 6, 1841, Nauvoo, Illinois. That's where I'd go. :)

‏@Wendell_A_Howe: @BoArthur The laying of the cornerstone of the Nauvoo Mormon Temple? Ground breaking ceremonies can be rather dull with all the speeches.

BoArthur @Wendell_A_Howe yes, but being a Mormon, that interests me!

@vonHogflume: #TemporalTues Just back from 1905. I watched the first-class cricket debut of Jack Hobbs, in Surrey v Gentlemen (18 & 28). Excellent.

@mrrustymonkey: * a car alarm sounds off, in the parking lot of the #TemporalTues twitterverse, & a monkey doll sits straight up in bed *

@mrrustymonkey: * he was having a #TemporalTues nightmare about selling art supplies out of his apartment, while impatient customers yelled @ him *

@mrrustymonkey: * his tired, twitching eyes search the #TemporalTues darkness for the clock.It's only 3:33 am. whew! he can still sleep a little longer *

@mrrustymonkey: * he gets up anyway, & steps into his sparse living / dining room & sits down on a bar stool - his seat on the #TemporalTues time machine *

@mrrustymonkey: * he looks @ his tiny Christmas tree. he made those #TemporalTues ornaments, but no one's around to notice. he stares into the darkness *

@mrrustymonkey: Today on this #TemporalTues, we're slaves @ our job. Someone please set us free! It's 1990.

@mrrustymonkey: We're exhausted #TemporalTues, working a 7 day week. As entry level grunts, our pay is minimum wage meek.

@mrrustymonkey: We're going nowhere #TemporalTues, our future's a big question mark "?" We leave our apartment early morning & return way after dark.

@mrrustymonkey: We do the manager's job #TemporalTues, but we don't get her pay. Perhaps the experience itself will be valuable someday?

@mrrustymonkey: But for now #TemporalTues, we'll unbox these supplies. We price 'um & arrange 'um & won't be surprised…

@mrrustymonkey: …if we work a 12 hour shift #TemporalTues, without any help. We haven't eaten today, but we're too scared to yelp.

@mrrustymonkey: We NEED this job #TemporalTues. It's the recession you see. That better gallery position went to a Ph.D.

@mrrustymonkey: Our college diploma #TemporalTues isn't worth diddly squat ... while we're punching this "real world" robotic time clock.

@mrrustymonkey: Now it's Christmas Eve #TemporalTues & it's getting real late. We need to run register totals & close down this mall gate.

@mrrustymonkey: It's almost midnight #TemporalTues & we're facing a 2 hr drive! We want to spend Christmas with our parents. Hope we make it there alive?

@mrrustymonkey: But these customers are screaming #TemporalTues, "I need to buy some more stuff!" We're 2 seconds from yelling, "Enough is enough!"

@mrrustymonkey: * he closes his eyes tightly & skips ahead exactly one #TemporalTues year into the future… then he opens his eyes again & :-) *

@mrrustymonkey: Oh yes #TemporalTues, I really like what I see! Daddy's kissing mommy next to a jeweled Christmas tree…

@mrrustymonkey: … in a large, warm house #TemporalTues - like the ones we'd drive by & say, "Sure hope we have a home like that one someday!"

@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues, daddy gave us a career / an escape. Our lives changed in a snap! He helped us break from our chains & out of our trap.

@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues, he saw our potential & our value. He even invested in ME! ;-) And that investment paid multiples in love, you see.

@mrrustymonkey: So what's the lesson #TemporalTues? Things can change? Yep, things can go your way…if you can just hold on, hold on, for one more day.

@mrrustymonkey: Oh #TemporalTues time machine, love & kindness is the key that allows me to sing… View video

@mrrustymonkey: * a #TemporalTues tune plays in his head, as he gives a paycheck to someone with a familiar ? look on her face. hold on Cynthia. hold on. *

@mrrustymonkey: Thanks old chap for the #FF! @Wendell_Howe - well worth following on #FF... & #TemporalTues! ;-) Thanks for creating my favorite day!

@mrrustymonkey: Not troubled @pasikas. Mostly tired. My #TemporalTues travels should be more upbeat though? :-) I shouldn't be so haunted by my memories.



146th Temporal Tuesday - 17 April

‏@Captain_Zaphod: #TemporalTues 17 Apr 1937 to see the debut of Daffy Duck, Elmer Fudd and Petunia Pig. Ate 5 bags of popcorn & 2 bags of peanuts to.

@Wendell_Howe: It's #TemporalTues http://temporaltues.blogspot.com/ Join @Captain_Zaphod and sneak into a movie theatre in the past.

@Captain_Zaphod: @Wendell_Howe Gonna be one crowded theatre...

@vonHogflume: #TemporalTues I really enjoyed attending a medieval feast, but found the idea of throwing meat bones to the floor for the dogs a bit odd.

@vonHogflume: #TemporalTues Just back from 1914, where I enjoyed watching "The Photo Drama of Creation" put on by Bible Students. 8 hours of early cinema!

@mrrustymonkey: * somewhere in the #TemporalTues twitterverse, a small piece of luggage tumbles over & an old monkey dolls squeaks out in distress *

@mrrustymonkey: * it feels like someone's given him a swift kick in the head. it's dark, but he can see #TemporalTues stars *! *! *!

@mrrustymonkey: * he hears muffled talking. sounds like Uncle Mark & grandaddy are saying something about football & ordering #TemporalTues beer? *

@mrrustymonkey: * he tries to wiggle himself around in the cramped, pitch black space. is this his seat on the #TemporalTues time machine? *

@mrrustymonkey: * he wonders what has become of his little blue crochet hat? the luggage flops back over again. he squeaks & closes his #TemporalTues eyes *

@mrrustymonkey: Today on this #TemporalTues, I'm feeling all rough & tumble. I'm being tossed to-and-fro! It's a week ago.

@mrrustymonkey: I'm on a plane for Vegas #TemporalTues. It's their anniversary you see. And I was once their ring bearer - yep, little old toy monkey me.

@mrrustymonkey: I should have my own ticket #TemporalTues! Alright, I really shouldn't complain…but this old Vuitton case kinda drives me insane. ;-)

@mrrustymonkey: * the #TemporalTues luggage opens temporarily. oh bother, mommy's just digging around for mints! he spies the back of Aunt Nancy's head *

@mrrustymonkey: I can hear my mammaw #TemporalTues. I'd much rather sit in her lap. Instead, I'm stuck in this old "Speedy" trap. ;-(

@mrrustymonkey: Now they're watching a movie #TemporalTues. They've forgotten about me. I'd like some Biscoff cookies. Will someone please set me free?

@mrrustymonkey: * the #TemporalTues bag opens again & there's his daddy! he says, "You OK in there little buddy?" monkey grins, closing his eyes again *

@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues, I just heard Uncle Mark say "limo" - we must be on the ground? And I can hear that old bing bonging slot machine sound!

@mrrustymonkey: Where's "The Strip" #TemporalTues? I want to see those bright lights! "Hey mommy, can I pop out & see all the sights?"

@mrrustymonkey: *he looks up to see a beam of #TemporalTues light slicing through the darkness. the zipper slides open & a hand reaches in to pull him out*

@mrrustymonkey: Hooray #TemporalTues! We're unpacked & ready to relax in our room. We're way up in the sky. Did I just hear a loud boom?

@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues, that fountain outside shoots high up in the air! The water dances to music! Let's just sit here & stare.

@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues, that building's covered with faces. It that Donny & Marie? Now this looks like a Vegas of my memory?

@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues, but where's Elvis & Wayne Newton... the Rat Pack @ the Dunes? That fake Eiffel Tower seems a bit "Looney Tunes".

@mrrustymonkey: * he continues to sit, mesmerized by the #TemporalTues entertainment below. everything appears to be spinning. he grins.

@mrrustymonkey: OK #TemporalTues. This is Vegas, so just about anything goes. Tomorrow night, we'll enjoy a cool Broadway-style show!

@mrrustymonkey: But tonight #TemporalTues, we celebrate 15 & 45! It's their anniversary & her birthday… & we're all still alive. ;-)

@mrrustymonkey: Let's order room service #TemporalTues & listen to old standards & jazz. We'll save tomorrow for any wild razzmatazz!

@mrrustymonkey: * he hears a familiar #TemporalTues song playing & suddenly he's back in a 1960's Vegas with his daddy. "How lucky can one monkey be!"

@mrrustymonkey: Oh #TemporalTues time machine, here's a coin to make your slot machine ring... View video

@thisbear: @mrrustymonkey Rusty?! *world suddenly gets brighter, like a whole box of brand new crayons*

144th Temporal Tuesday - 3 April

@mousewords: @ExplodingDragon I made auspicious use of #TemporalTues time travel. You should SEE all the Lorax cosplay at ComicCon 2012! ;)

@Wendell_Howe: Not sure if using a time machine to sneak into ComicCon is cricket, but is one way to get there. @mousewords @ExplodingDragon #TemporalTues

@mousewords: @Wendell_Howe It's not *realllly* sneaking in, since my ticket'd be at will-call..it's just impatience ;D #TemporalTues

@vonHogflume: #TemporalTues Thought about travelling back to buy some British gold in 2002 for $256 an ounce, then selling it in 2012 for $1000.

‏@vonHogflume: #TemporalTues I found that something in British gold affects my #timemachine. I had to leave it in a bank strongbox, but I lost the key.

@vonHogflume: #TemporalTues I also forgot that chip-and-PIN cards do not work before 2006. So I had to pay by cheque! So old fashioned.

@vonHogflume: #TemporalTues After much effort "behind the scenes" I finally persuaded the US in 1884 to adopt Standard Time.

@ScotsSmiler: #Timemachine not working Mr @vonHogflume? Why not visit Norfolk in 2012 which is still in the 1970s #TemporalTues #TimeTravelTip

@mrrustymonkey: * suddenly, an old monkey doll pops his head into the #TemporalTues twitterverse & :-) *

@mrrustymonkey: * he's wearing a red bow tie & an old straw hat. he dances, in soft-shoe, onto the #TemporalTues stage *

@mrrustymonkey: * he opens the box, hops in, & then closes his eyes. this is his seat on the #TemporalTues time machine *

@mrrustymonkey: Today on this #TemporalTues, I'm still sitting in a box... but I'm OK? Yes, I'll be fine? It's 1969.

@mrrustymonkey: It's dark #TemporalTues. I wonder what's happening out there? I can hear all kinds of sounds & it doesn't seem fair…

@mrrustymonkey: ...to be packed in this box #TemporalTues, when I want some cuddles & hugs. Instead, I fear the bite of those awful moth bugs!

@mrrustymonkey: What year is it #TemporalTues, did they forget about me? There's still plenty of life left in this monkey, you see!

@mrrustymonkey: Their world is changing #TemporalTues, but mine stands still while I wait. Someday, this box will open…yes, that will be great!

@mrrustymonkey: And I'll pop out of here #TemporalTues, a Jack in box grinning surprise! Will they notice that I'm missing one of my eyes?

@mrrustymonkey: Do I still look good enough #TemporalTues? Oh, go away awful bugs! You see, a moth eaten stuffed animal never gets any hugs.

@mrrustymonkey: * he closes his #TemporalTues eyes again & imagines the vivid, rainbow colors of a carnival ferris wheel… *

@mrrustymonkey: * … his #TemporalTues ears can almost hear the steam whistle, screamer strains of a circus calliope. he smiles. *

@mrrustymonkey: Oh #TemporalTues time machine, while I wait in this box, I might as well sing…. View video

@mrrustymonkey: * he tips his little #TemporalTues straw hat to @WendellHowe & sits there, bouncing around the years with his friend *

136th Temporal Tuesday - 7 February

mrrustymonkey: * a bedside phone rings, somewhere in the #TemporalTues twitterverse & a monkey doll suddenly jolts to attention *

@mrrustymonkey: * the #TemporalTues clock says 5:55 am. but what day is it? he turns on the light & sits quietly, knowing what has happened *

@mrrustymonkey: * whatever they're saying on the other end of the #TemporalTues phone doesn't register. he feels hollow & speechless *

@mrrustymonkey: * he doesn't want to be a part of "right now". indeed any #TemporalTues yesterday is a much better choice. he closes his eyes *

@mrrustymonkey: Today on this #TemporalTues, I can't think of the right thing to say. And It just keeps on being today.

@mrrustymonkey: So help me go back #TemporalTues to a sunnier time - when she was young & the world was much more refined.

@mrrustymonkey: I see her now #TemporalTues, wearing her pink Sunday best. Grandaddy "G" sits beside her & takes his first test.

@mrrustymonkey: He'll ask her name #TemporalTues, & with a smile on her face, she'll open her hymnal & point to... "Amazing Grace."

@mrrustymonkey: That's how it began #TemporalTues, in that time from their past. I wish I could make this scene last & last.

@mrrustymonkey: It's all safe here #TemporalTues, this "time out" from our sorrow. Don't worry, I'll be back here again tomorrow.

@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues, now I'm skipping ahead to Christmas 2011. It was the last time we saw her. Today, she's an angel in heaven.

@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues, I wish I could see her & hug her & kiss her sweet face. I will miss you my "GaGa". I will miss you Miss Grace.

@mrrustymonkey: #TemporalTues, she said, " Now y'all be good to one another & always love one another." Yes Maam. Piece of cake.

@mrrustymonkey: Oh #TemporalTues time machine, the little town of Newton will gather to sing... Amazing Grace
