The Continuing Saga of the Starship Hubbertise and the Hubnuggetries!

Ship's Log Supplemental: stardate 0319.2010 Security Chief Zsuzsy Bee recording

This week’s mission became an ordeal, which we almost did not survive with our dignities intact. It’s best if I commence at the very beginning, I’m told that that is usually a good place to start.


It all began when Commander Jason Menayan the head and neck of hubpages marketing department (as can be seen in the pic) went on much deserved R&R. When he did not return in the specified time, the computer-ing system at headquarters went haywire … red and blue flags, as a matter of fact, flags in every color of the rainbow sprouted up everywhere. (the board looked quite festive…okay, okay I know I’m off topic)

Commander Maddie Rudd (here seen, still wearing her pretty in pink Hub-cap) feared the worst. She called in the team and without further ado dispatched us to the outer galaxy quadrant for a rescue mission.

many, many missions under our belts
many, many missions under our belts

At this point let me tell you, we are trained professionals who have endured much at boot camp. Even the many, many missions we all have under our belts did not prepare us for the horrors we were to witness soon.

The co-ordinates, that headquarters had supplied us with took us far, far, much farther than we had ever gone before. It took us through the milky way, past the seventh moon of the sixth constellation, across from the fifth extra-solar planet near the fourth Nebulae in the third black hole of the second cluster of brown dwarfs (bodies too small to be stars yet too big to be planets) to the left which is the first and biggest planet called S--Murphystan . It was easy to figure out the name of the planet as the surrounding gaseous rings had the name printed on in blue flashing lights.

Science Officer PI 3.1417hub1417hub (Patti for short… not that she is short but the name can become a mouth-full) quickly scanned her new quad strength-tricorder (it’s the cutest thing not much bigger then a cell phone…ooops I’m doing it again). She was instantly, connected to Wikipedia.

This was the definition: ‘S--Murphystan is the largest planet in the Eddy solar system. It can support human life. Warning: has pec*liar si*e ef*ects on h***ns’ the definition abruptly stopped then continued on page two with the headline “S--Murphystan’s Philosophies” Smile…tomorrow will be worse. The next headline in the article was that according to “S--Murphystan’s laws “ Only two sizes exist, too large and too small. (there is no such thing as just right)


[judging by the pic that showed up the quartermaster ran out of ‘too small’ and to the horror of the Security Chief (that’s me) who also earns extra cash tailoring the crews uniforms under the table, everyone runs around in “too large”.]

It took no time what-so-ever for us to find out why it was called S--Murphystan.

The main law of S--Murphystan or the fourth law of thermodynamics is supposedly "Whatever can go wrong will go wrong, and at the worst possible time, in the worst possible way." (don’t ask me what it means, I flunked Thermodynamics in College)

Commander B.T. Evilpants and Ensign Hubnugget Hank located our missing commander and after thoroughly analyzed the situation, they tried to anticipate all problems prior to their occurrence, and having not just an answer… but a solution for all of these possible problems, so that we could move swiftly onto and off the planet .

Capt’n Anderson in her usual 'before-dangerous-mission-pep-talk' reminded us, as we were getting ready to beam down to the planet, that the prime objective of our mission was to dedicate all our efforts to extricate Commander Jason without any interaction with the natives of S--Murphystan as quickly as possible because we did not know what and how much of the Wikipedia definition was missing.

Redelf who was assigned to be our ‘Scottie’ on this mission stayed behind on the Starship Hubbertis along with Ripplemaker who had decided to come along on this mission.

If it would not have been for the level head of the Levelheadedness Manager and of her knowing that instead of forcing it to just use a bigger hammer, we would not have been able to make it off that planet and return to the ship without having had to suffer the same consequences as Commander Menayan.

A bonus of this mission was that we were able to replace the missing Wiki page, describing that too much sun or tanning in the Eddy S--Murphystan solar system causes humans to have a long term unwanted tan ‘a-la Smurfs’. It also causes severe irresistible thirst for Blue Curacao which along with the color eventually will wear off in a year or two or three. (Unanimously we neglected to give Commander Jason the time frame though, ....what he doesn’t know won’t hurt us)

However, at the debriefing (de-briefing----not a word I care to define at this moment) both B.T. and Hank admitted that what they neglected to acknowledge at the time was that if you are up to your donkeybutt (ass) in alligators, you sometimes forget that your initial objective was to drain the swamp. (heeehhhh????) (Those two are just so smart that its hard to understand them at times)

You ask, what was Commander Jason doing on S--Murphystan? Well, I can’t tell you... my lips are sealed, because that it classified and if you found out we would have to (no, not kill you, no, just whip you with some wet noodles)

But what I can tell you, of course the reason, our sole purpose, is and always will be for the good of the hubnuggets… We’re all here for the HubNuggets!

Lucky we didn't catch tooooo many of those S--Murphistan rays. Anyone else thirsty? For Caracao?

You already know the Hubnugget team, the ones who leave Hubland fearlessly and go where no hubbers have gone before…

It was my turn to make sure the chosen hubs were delivered and presented to all of Hubland. The next step is in your hands. Hubbing public all you have to do is read and vote.

thank-you

Every week you will be able to read and vote for your favorite from 18 hubs/ 6 from 3 categories. This fabulous new format lets you vote for three hubs, that’s right three not just one, one from each of the weekly featured categories. To be selected and voted to be a Hubnugget is very encouraging to a new Hubber.

Hubbers, Friends of Hubbers, Readers, Martians, S--Murphystanians, any other Gallaxians you're all invited to come by, read and vote every week.

The how's, the who's , the why's, the what's to be eligible.

To be eligible for HubNugget consideration, you must have joined hubpages within the last 60 days, and have an author score of 75 or above. Your hub must have been published within the last 7 days, and have a hub score of 55 or above. That's it!

Now you may be asking how you can achieve all of that when you're still just a Hub-nuggeteer learning your way around here.

This is how: Build a hub with well written, original content. Next, add a few relevant photosvideo. Add a news feed if you like. Move your capsules around to create an attractive layout, and preview your handy work. Check for spelling and grammar booboos. Now all that's left to do is hit that "publish" button, and watch your score rise. Your friends at Hub-Central will do the rest! and/or a

If you want more detailed information, Shirley Anderson (our Team leader extraordinaire) has written a hub on the whole process. You can find it here. or here http://hubpages.com/hub/HubNuggets-How-To

B.T. there you are, every time we were looking for a refill you're off with the bottle.

Did you say you wanted me to go to 'Blue' Hawaii to relax??? What a good idea...I can do that... Yup these are tough jobs we have, but I guess someone has to do them. I'll face this hardship too...that doesn't mean I'm going to like it.

Between all the beers in OZ last week, and the curacao I seem to be swimming this week, I had a hard time voting! The little vote button kept moving on me, but I managed to pin it down long enough to vote.

I sure hope there's no alcohol in next week's hub. It's almost my turn to drive the ship again!

Great job, Zsuzsy! Go have a Blue Hawaiian and relax!

I left off use of the little cute tri-corderiness and began to use the "little grey cells." Thus was I able to read and vote. I believe the ship needs a refit now - maybe a swimming pool - but this was a very interesting mission with much fun attached, as well as good reading material both in the Log and in the Wannabe Hubs.

Congratulations to all the Wannabes and smooth flying!
