Amy is a little freaked out by this and what it might mean for her and her son (Crawley tells her not to get mixed up in that aspect of things (ha! She sees Coach Vogel (who is on the trip with her) and tells him she has to go because of an emergence (Amy Joubert seems to be something of a fibber-di-gibbit, at least on school trips).Once again they have no idea how many kids are on the trip.He was released from the hospital–he looked for her there but remembered the trip to the Met. Glancy bought another suit there too (actually he split the seat of it).

JR is more about money and sex, and the internet doesn’t have many pictures of either, right. When we left off, JR was trying to persuade Bast to help him out some more.

And, holy, he needs Bast to meet Mister Piscator out by the Egyptian stuff in the museum (JR can’t do it himself obviously–I love that he is using a handkerchief on the phone and everyone asks if there’s connection troubles).

In Casa di Cephalis she runs around turning all the lights on (this would be the era of “When Not in Use Turn Off the Juice– I had that sticker on my light switch all through grade school and high school). Vogel starts going on about Mrs James Watt (he thinks she must have been something to look at: push pull, push pull). While he is talking, Dan looks at Vogel’s suit and realizes that it is his own.

As she walks into the room in an unsubtly sexual way: “in erect silhouette against the flaccid shadows beyond” (310) she sees that her husband is home. Vogel bought it for $2 at the thrift store (he even found a condom in the back pocket).

Amy Joubert runs into Crawley with her field trip (The Met is crowded today).

Amy is delighted that Crawley is “patronizing the arts” and even more that he’s asking Bast to do a commission for him. She replies “There’s nothing I can do until all this with Lucien is settled and I can..,” and in another great play with names, he replies, “This Joubert you mean, yes.” [Crawley, it is her name too…] (307).

The other fun thing about Ween is that in addition to pretty much none of their albums sounding alike, pretty much none of their songs sound alike.

So you can’t tell if you’ll like any other Ween songs based on this one. And if, like me, you haven’t see the video in twenty years, check it out had lots of locations and historical photo-op type things.

As the bus pulls out we learn that Ann di Cephalis took the kids to the basketball game that Vogel was supposed to go to (HA! And a refrain of “maybe she enjoyed the basketball” runs through his head until they get back and Ann is there. Turns out Nora took all his suits to the Thrift Store for her Brownie points.

Vogel observes that all the busses look alike, and is ranting at her and she calls him crazy to which he replies “Daisies won’t tell” (310). Dan starts measuring the studs and Ann goes to town on him calling him a freak for crawling around like that. He was supposed to go down and buy them back (of course, he was in the hospital) “the first time she goes out and shows some initiative” (317).

She’s about to run after her class, when Crawley mentions that Beaton is trying to pick up Nobili stocks to give Joubert a hard time.
