Friday Foolishness – Gustatory Edition

Today’s Music: Lester Young & Coleman Hawkins – Jumpin’ With Symphony Sid
Note on Today’s Music: taken from one of Sharp Little Pencil’s recent posts. Classic jazz that stuck in my head, so I thought I’d share. And you should check out her site too – great poetry!

Aaaaaand…Friday. Thank goodness. Long, long week.Long days, long nights.
And how does one keep ones sanity during times like these? Why, one reads blogs, of course!
Shalvika got out and did some traveling, and met some great people.
Kayjai (the president of Canadia) took us on a typical day with her.
LizzieCracked has been on an artistic tear, and we are the beneficiaries!
And finally, Cayman Thorn nominated me for Addictive Blog Award. A huge honor coming from him, and if you want everything from hilarious sports commentary to tropical fiction, you should check him out.
Hell, check him out anyway. I look forward to every new post of his, and it’s a big deal to me to get this from him!

Some great stuff from them, and everyone else this week, so thank you all for that!

And that brings us from this week to last week. We asked you how you want your remains handled. And wow, do you guys have issues! (And I mean that in the best possible way.) Here’s what you said in response to last weeks poll.. (As always, my comments are memorialized in italics.)

Congratulations to Kanerva for this week’s winning answer! And from the offered choices, this week was a tie between Stuffed and mounted on the lawn and Shot into space! (Hey, it was good enough for Rodenberry…). Either one is a fine way to spend eternity, so congratulations to you as well!

So delicious. In so many ways…

Finally, we move on to next week. This poll is the result of an odd bit of synergy. Last week, I was discussing burgers with Frank). And this past weekend, my nephew suggested that be this weeks poll.
Who am I to argue?
So, my nephew would like to hear about your favorite burger. And that’s this weeks poll. Top your answers with relish,but top them soon, because this one ends at 2359 EST on 11 Oct. And if you write in an “other”, leave a way to recognize you, and I’ll link back next week.

And to amuse you until next week, enjoy this.
You’ve all heard of Literal Videos? Well, here’s an Honest Trailer. This time for the Avengers.

Have a great week, y’all! See you out in the ‘verse…
