Friday Foolishness – Free Time Edition


Today’s Music: Grinderman – Palaces of Montezuma

What a week! Not just one, but two big birthdays, of two of the coolest people in the sphere!
I was honored when Sooz gave me a blog of the year award, and again with a very inspiring blogger award from Edward Hotspur.
No idea why I got these, but you guys should definitely check out their blogs. (always a high point for me when they post!)
And finally, Surfer Stoke put up a great post about the radio show from hell.

Thanks to them and you, for another great week of stuff to read!

FOOD BABY!!!

FOOD BABY!!!


Last week, it wasn’t about the reading, but the writing. We asked you to note down how, after the holidays, you would lose the weight. And wow, you weren’t shy about your methods! Here’s what you said. (As always, my comments spend a lifetime on the hips in italics.)

Stop eating all your chocolates 🙂 Androgoth
(So that’s what happened to all the decorative soaps in the bathroom!)
Forget aerobics and have more sex. I can’t give up cookies. (D. Delicious)
(You realize it’s illegal in 38 countries to have sex with cookies…)
Eat skinny people! I mean, you are what you eat right?? (GiggsMcGill Jill)
(We’ve been over this, Giggles. Deep fried is deep fried, no matter who what you wrap in the batter.)
Lower gravity, or move to the moon. Michelle
(At last – someone who appreciates the weight of the situation!)
Have trampoline sex… x, Becca
(You realize it’s illegal in 38 countries to have sex with a trampoline…)
Book a cheap fare for a cruise on da Nile – what weight? LizzieC
(It’s the riddle of The Sphinx!)
Hey! What are you trying to say? LizzieC
(Umm….Shuffleboard!)
Take off my shoes. That’s all the energy I have right now! (From JohnE.)
(Surely you have the energy to leave more answers!)
y I have right now! (From JohnE.)
(There you go, let it out…)
y I have right now! (From JohnE.)
(Shed the words, shed the weight!)
y I have right now! (From JohnE.)
(Winding down now…)
And repeatedly vote so I can get rid of all these old ballots! (JohnE.!)
(You realize it’s illegal in 38 countries to stuff ballot boxes…)
leaving my dumbells some place from which they can’t find their way home… BK
(*something insensitive about stupid people*)
take down the tree and all the decorations! BK
(What would Clark Griswold say?)
Amputate an arm and/or leg – Carrie Cannibalistic Nerd
(But then how will you answer these pol– Ohhhhhh…)
Eat and puke, twice the flavor, zero calories
(Save it on the way out and you won’t have to cook for a week!)
(No, I didn’t just say that.)

Cut off MY head.10 pounds uselsss weight. Keeping 20 pnd tits ~ Miss R
(You could fashion the ears into pasties!)
Move my laptop to a different spot 3x a day – Benzeknees
(It’s only exercise if you move your lap bottom.)
Implore my metabolism to hang out with Mario Andretti-lindavernon
(Just give it time to digest the idea…)
Run around the streets naked, well maybe? 🙂 Androgoth
(Go slow so everyone can enjoy the view.)
Sexercise! – Hotspur
(STAY OUT OF MY RICHARD SIMMONS TAPES!)
Walk to the car and back instead of being carried… Androgoth
(But think of the workout your bearers will get!)
Walk the 5 miles to work. In 5 feet of snow, even summer. Uphill both ways. BT
(WE HAVE A WINNER!!!)
give up wearing underwear
(How much does a thong weigh, anyway?)
Find the guy that writes these polls and flick him in the forehead 8 times.
(TMWGITU would get angry with you. You wouldn’t like her when she’s angry. (Even though I think she’s adorable all the time!)
Make my friends get fat so I look thin (ner) –Lily In Canada
(Dinner at Lily’s place!!!)
I am going to cut off your head… I wont lose weight, but the world will feel lighter
(Won’t help. I write these polls through my ass.)
Peen. Wait, what was the question? (TwinDaddy)
(Nono, that’s the answer to next weeks question.)
Usually cutting my hair really short lets me lose about 15 lbs. And my husband. Elyse 54.5
(Your husband lives in your hair?)
Picture Donald Trump in a speedo. That will coldcock any appetite. Carrie Rubin
(Trump just lost 15 pounds slobbering over that image.)
Say “Eff it, I’m over 30” and eat another cupcake. Nom, nom, nom. Quirky
(That can still work for you! (Ex-Lax makes frosting, right?))
I am going to eat like a fiend to GAIN the weight I lost putting up RP ~ Red.
(Wouldn’t it be easier (and less messy) to just eat like a really hungry person?)
wait until its back is turned, then hide behind a rock. Sucker. – calahan
(Umm…that rock you’re hiding behind is my gut…)
find peace. no, not THAT kind of piece, but, soul peace. sheesh. (Addie)
(Wouldn’t you prefer a piece of peac-a?)
Lose weight? Fuck that! Mardi Gras starts Jan 6. GIMMIE KING CAKE!!! Alex A.
(If you find the baby jesus, you have to come up with the answers for the polls in February!)
…jaywalk. More. JOTS
(In New York, it’s like Frogger!)
take a cruise (Frank)
(How do all those buffets help lose weight?)
I think training for a marathon should suffice! (words&otherthings)
(But wouldn’t you eat more during an All In The Family marathon?)
What holiday weight?! My jeans shrunk! KJ
(Seems to be an epidemic of that this time of year…)
Go on a vodka liquid diet. With vodka. And ice. Snaap
(Don’t you know how any calories there are in ice?!?)
Take the batteries out of the digital scale! GingerSnaap
(Sure, the scale is where you’re keeping the batteries. Mmm Hmm…)

Congratulations to Brain Tomahawk for this weeks winning answer! And from the offered choices, the most popular was Wait – is this another “break a resolution” poll?. So congratulations to all you lucky, confused people out there!

Exactly what is a henge anyway?!?

Exactly what is a henge anyway?!?

I’ve noticed that the days have started getting visibly longer. Today, the sky won’t be dark until about 5 pm! For me, that means we’re well on our way on the uphill climb to spring. But why wait? Why not take advantage of it now?
That’s this weeks poll.
Answer soon, answer early. But answer by 2359 EST on 17 Jan, because that’s when this one ends.
And if you write in an “other” response, leave a way to identify you, and I’ll link back to you next week.)

Well, that about covers it, except for the video.
This one is out and out stolen from Elyse at fifty our and a half:

And to be topical for a moment, here’s a quick explanation of the financial issues in Europe.

Have a great weekend, and see you ’round the ‘verse!

    Grinderman? Good choice. I knew you were eclectic, but I didn’t figure you for a Nick Cave man. Have you heard “The Ship Song?” You probably have, but if not, give it a listen. It’s not to everybody’s tastes (and very different than Grinderman), but I think it’s lovely.
