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.)

traded to the Mets for future prospectsCayman Thorn
(If that’s how they get their prospects, so much is clear…)
I HOPE MY HUBBY SELLS MY ORGANS ON THE BLK MARKET FOR LOTS OF CASH. Love&Lunchmeat
(He’d get more grinding them up as aphrodisiacs.)
DropMeOff atThe next Spatial Anomaly to do some time warping. Michelle Motley News
(Oh, so you’re a Scientologist…)
Propped in the corner at the wake with a beer in your hand – John Phillips
(Ah, tuesday nights…)
Stuffed and made into a hat rack (Stacy Lyn)
(With an extra branch to hang your gloves! (No, I didn’t say that.))
used as a mould for El Guapola Sex Dolls (SnB)
(Only the original will do.)
I just want to float…all over the world.
(Would you settle for floating over a Thanksgiving Day parade? You’d get to be on tv…)
…made love to constantly by geisha for all eternity. – Hotspur
(Wouldn’t you want that before you were dead?)
Dropped from a tall building onto a politician.
(What a waste of a perfectly good corpse…)
Not funny, donated for medical research – Benzeknees
(An excellent plan, Benze. I tried to donate my body to them once. They took one look, and donated it right the hell back.)
Covered in sushi and served for dinner. x, Becca
(What if we just butter your buns and call you a biscuit?)
Thrown out of an airplane (for old time’s sake). –Lily
(Extra points if you hit a politician!)

Featured in Disney World’s Haunted Mansion. Grippy
(How about at the ticket booth – the prices are even scarier…)
bronzed and affixed to the nose of the recently retired space shuttle (Kanerva)
(WE HAVE A WINNER!!!)
Stuffed into my blog (Frank)
(In your Shorts?)
Cryogenitcally frozen. Just make sure I have my Uggs. KJ
(If there are Uggs involved, wouldn’t cremation be more appropriate?)

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…

  3. And no one else is worthy of mention? Damn, I hate when people list a few blogs to read, and not the hundreds or thousands of blogs that follow them or that they follow or have heard about in passing.

    • So many others worth mentioning, Hotspur.
      But I always thought that if there’s a ton listed, it’s less likely people will check out any of them, so I just list three or four that stuck in my head for whatever reason.
      And I try to not to keep relisting the same blogs (or you’d be there at least three times a year!) πŸ˜‰

  6. Dude! Thanks for the shout out πŸ™‚ I have been having many brief artistic expulsions of late… I guess that is why I am even having to ask the next question….

    How the HELck did it get to be Friday? What kind of – who is in charge here I want a do over I didn;t get to vote and I came up with it a couple days ago…I just never was present – mentally I guess when I thought of it….. Glue Factory – high quality limited quantity and you know there would be glitter in it. My way to keep on giving
    Great answers from some – others just a bit puzzling bordering on disturbing – I can say that now right cause I think glue qualifies…. holy have so much to do Batman… I( thought it was Wed. without really thinking about it I would have said Thurs… mannnn…
    Well at leadt I started off Friday right – woulda been worse to get all the way through the day and then have to scroll forever and..not get the joy of Friday Foolishness first thing in the Morning…
    Joy. Pure Joy. πŸ˜€

    Next week is Mental Illness Awareness Week – gee I think you are pretty aware of Mental Illness – there are a lot of nuts around here… BUT some people aren’t so much and their misguided souls could use some awarifying… – time to move some mountains !- change the world! i am gonna just take a little nap first πŸ™‚

    • I think the Mets would do better with a genuine corpse in a management position, M Weebles.
      Or perhaps in the front office. That would definitely be trading up.

        Oh my, maybe like one of those Billy Big Bass toys. You know the ones that sing “Take me to the river…” That would be hilarious.

        You could have yourself sing, “Let’s do the time warp Again!!!” haha. Not sure what my song would be. I’m torn between Elton’s “the bitch is back” or Evita’s “don’t cry for me Argentina, the truth is I never I left you…” Maybe a nice medley of the two!

  23. I’ve never heard of “Literal Movie Trailers” before, but I’m guessing they’re something most everybody else has heard of. As a nerd myself, I can largely agree with the trailer, with two minor quibbles. 1) Captain America is at least one person’s favorite Avenger, and 2) The whole “I’m always angry” thing made perfect sense to me, and actually added a layer of nuance to the character that had been heretofore lacking.

    Like

    • I agree Smak. The bit in the trailer where the Hulk changes is my favorite part of the movie, and added a lot of depth to the character.
      But Captain America? Really?

      Sigh…

  24. I voted Baron Burgers for next week. They are a chain here in Alberta & I had never heard of them before moving here. They have the most delicious burgers I have ever had. They always do the meat fairly well done, with a delicious mushroom sauce on all their burgers which just makes the burger. They have nice soft buns with sesame seeds, great pickles & my mouth is watering just thinking about them!

  25. I’m honored with two mentions here – let alone inspiring a poll question!
