Friday Foolishness – Statuary Edition


Today’s Music: The Kings – This Beat Goes On/Switchin’ to Glide
Note on Today’s Music: Because really, nothing matters but the weekend. From any point of view.

What a week! Work, errands, chores, and to top it off, I chopped off a piece of my finger too.
So how does one distract oneself from the pain?
Why, by reading blogs of course! Here’s some of what I saw.
Alex Autin showed me how my old commute wasn’t near as bad as our collective commute. I Thought This Would Be Easier may finally have time to pee, and and Helene Troy had some strong feelings about fat.

Also, Edward Hotpur bestowed a Versatile Blogger Award on me! (How cool is that?)

Thanks to them, and all of you, for a great week of reads!
Cupid
What else was read? Well ,last week, a bunch of you read the poll, where we ask what you do the day after Valentines Day. And from the answers, love means many things to many people. Here’s what you said. (As always, my comments are ardent in italics.)

I hunt down a good bone 🙂 Wolf
(Say it with me, everyone: THAT’S WHAT SHE SAID!)
If I had a Valentine like that I wouldn’t need the talcum powder…. ~Miss R

(Oh, I don’t need a holiday for that!)
realize that my “subtle” hints to my husband for gifts would work better if I paid for commercial time on the Golf Channel ~whatimeant2say
(Only if you want a polo shirt. Or a putter…)
just to clarify, the last two were from me, ~whatimeant2say
(Yay, moment of clarity!)
and probably should be put together ~whatimeant2say
(like peanut butter and chocolate! And tequila…)
because they really make no sense if split apart ~whatimeant2say
(Trust me, things stopped making sense here a loooong time ago…)
ok. I’ll stop now. ~whatimeant2say
(Wait! I had a good comeback on the way! Really! Hmph.)
started planning for Christmas because ya can’t commercialize too early. Elyse 54.5

(Just a pound? Slacker!)
Allowed hubby to describe all the pics in the SI Swimsuit Edition to me. ~Maddie Cochere
(I’m not sure he’s looking at the swimsuits…)
Sneak to the store to buy my own chocolates at 1/2 price! benzeknees

resolve to have at least one body to bury next V Day. butimbeautiful
(Wait til the Christmas sales. You’ll find plenty. That deserve it.)
Show my man how much I love him in addition to every day of the year. Michelle
(WE HAVE A WINNER!!!)
great day to buy next year’s valentines day card…at half price (SnB)
(But what if the sentiments change by next year?)
Realize I have a gigantic food baby. At least it’s not a real baby! – Lily In Canada
(Wait – real babies aren’t food?!?)
(No, I didn’t just say that…)

there was a Valentines Day? Damn I missed it again (JackieP)
(You were caught up in the Presidents Day excitement too!!!)
take my undergarments from my purse after the long walk of shame
(Is it more shameful if they’re someone elses undergarments? Asking for a friend…)
Bodies? I ground the bones to make my pancakes. Trick Q? ~Red
(Can’t wait to hear your syrup recipe!)
Laugh at the chick whose first date overran her second & went home alone. Red.

(But wouldn’t they all enjoy a ride in- Ohhhhhhhh…)
Change the sheets. You know because I rolled around in chocolate. KBar3
(Is that what the kids are calling it these days?)
What? It was Valentine’s Day? Carrie Rubin
(But according to my Hallmark calendar, it’s the most important day of the year!)

Congratulations to Michelle for this weeks winning answer,and keeping love and romance alive all year long! And from the offered choices, the most popular was “Make delicious recipes. With the bodies.” Because y’all don’t wast anything! (except the time spent here!)

Oscar as a young man.(He was a rebel before he became the establishment.)

Oscar as a young man.
(He was a rebel before he became the establishment.)


This week,we’re polling again on the topical events of the week. Because we’re lazy. (And couldn’t figure out a good “bloody appendage” poll.)
So butter your popcorn and fill your 70 oz soft drink! And cast your ballots in this weeks poll. But do it by 2359 on 28 Feb, because that’s when this one ends. (If you leave a way for me to recognize you in your answer, I’ll link back to you next week.)

That about wraps it up for this week. And in parting, enjoy these.
First, the theme song from a piece of cinema veritae that won NO awards.
I know, I can’t believe it either!

And finally, since both Easter and Christmas were referenced above, what the hell, lets throw in some of the devil.

Have a great week y’all. See you on the bounceback…

      • That’s gross. Luckily, I was not a diner, but a server at the time of the “mysterious clam incident” at the Hyatt… not THE server, just one who heard about the spectacle second-hand. Or finger… finger tip, really…. I just grossed myself out.

  29. Attack of the Killer Tomatoes! I thought I was the only person who knew about this movie! (Really, who needs to watch classics like The African Queen when there are quality movies like AKT?) My favourite scene is when they attack people in the water with the Jaws music playing…

  32. Okay, I’m getting here late (when I start getting tardy you know I’m at the beginning or the end of a job), but did you really slice off part of your finger? Did I miss something? Are you all right? (although I guess you can type).

    And I know this is my problem, and not yours, but I can’t see the word “statuary” without seeing “statutory.” It’s something I’m working on.

    Damn, hope your finger gets better.

    • I lopped off a piece finger while failing to slice a potato a few weeks ago, Smak. It’s healed to the point where there’s just a little bit of oozing, and they assure me the missing bits will grow back.

      Also, I’ve learned that Oxycodone isn’t near as great as people make it out to be.
