Goodenough Gismo

  • Gismo39
    This is the classic children's book, Goodenough Gismo, by Richmond I. Kelsey, published in 1948. Nearly unavailable in libraries and the collector's market, it is posted here with love as an "orphan work" so that it may be seen and appreciated -- and perhaps even republished, as it deserves to be. After you read this book, it won't surprise you to learn that Richmond Irwin Kelsey (1905-1987) was an accomplished artist, or that as Dick Kelsey, he was one of the great Disney art directors, breaking your heart with "Pinocchio," "Dumbo," and "Bambi."

Hi Amba,
All I can say is "Ick"
GN ;)

I'm charging them rent.

Yuck. This makes me want to pull my eyelashes out and douse myself with boiling water.

I'm just thinking of the parasites that live w/in us. They've gotta be there.

Living on a farm, i see lots of ~Icky~ things. Thank God we can't see the things, eh???

Alison

Had to follow the link, b/c my innter journalist loved its title. Reading the list, I'm thinking, this would have been so much better as a blog post, with each point linking to the original source or research. I've been spoiled and corrupted by hypertext.

Do they eat fat? I'll send them to my hips.

meade

They eat dead skin cells. Think of them as bio vacuum cleaners.

Still, moderation in all things, right?

Part of the trouble is, if you could see them under a microscope they'd look like hideous monsters. Hey, why don't I try to find a picture . . .

Alison: "corrupted" is an interesting way to put it, as if the single-mindedness of print were somehow pure, instead of just obtuse and opaque, which is how it seems to me now. In "regular writing," I'm constantly frustrated by not being able to link, even in my own personal journal.

Hey, not only this, but the bacteria in your digestive tract probably outnumber all the cells in your body by a margin of 10 to 1.

Remember, you're not just part of an ecosystem, you ARE an ecosystem.

I took meade up on his link (oh crap) and now both my daughter and i have the heebie-geebies.

My scalp itches. Has anyone ever had ringworm?? :0).

Nnyyyaaaaggggh!!!

Randy (Internet Ronin)

TMI, but thank you for sharing ;-)

karen

Wait- my scalp doesn't itch BECAUSE of ringworm (thank God)- i just linked two thoughts together. To be funny. Looks like the joke's on me- not literally.

Shucks- i'm going to bed. I feel like a dummy {:0?!!

meade

Sleep tight, Karen. Don't let the bedbugs bite.
