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!

@Wendell_Howe: Happy birthday @ladyrainbow I hope you had a nice time with @lousmom313@theladywrites and @korikatra

************************************************************************************ @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.

@vonHogflume: #TemporalTues 1912 - More about the Piltdown Man 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.



179th Temporal Tuesday - 4 December

@vonHogflume: #TemporalTues - I went to London in 1791 to purchase a copy of the first edition of The Observer, the world's first Sunday newspaper.

@vonHogflume: #TemporalTues 1791, London. Here is a picture of the first edition of The Observer. http://twitpic.com/bj38ts

************************************************************************************ @Captain_Zaphod: #TemporalTues Kept time jumping into the future until someone invented a real Portal Gun.

************************************************************************************ @fleming77: @Wendell_Howe time machine to Melbourne in 1980s to catch friends who emigrated #TemporalTues

************************************************************************************ @BrijitReed: @Wendell_Howe I'd go back and see why my GGGrandfather James G. Crutcher joined the Confederate Army.
