Friday Foolishness – Achilles Heel Edition


Today’s Music: Don Omar – Danza Kuduro
Note on Today’s Music: This was played over the closing scene of Fast And Furious Five, which was a much better movie than it had any right to be. And it’s a fun bouncy song. enjoy!

I’ve gone on ad nauseum about what I’ve been up to this week. but what else was there? Why, blogs, of course! Here’s some of what I read.
Ross Murray addressed the United Nations. Hasty Words wrote a beautiful poem to someone she didn’t really know. And Thoughtsy is getting married! (when she thinks he’s earned it).

Sincere thanks all around for a great week of reads!

And other things were read too. And written, even! Specifically, answers to last week’s poll, asking where I’d gone. Here’s what you said. (As always, my comments are lost in italics.)

3rd star to the right, and on till morning. thematticuskingdom
(WE HAVE A WINNER!!!)
to his other job. The one with a code number. butimbeautiful
(1000111010011010001100001. Get it? HAHAHAHA!!!!)
To band camp. At least someone remembers. Red.
(Alas, it wasn’t just one time. And it wasn’t only at band camp…)
To the future! Where you saw results of your cross-Atlantic jet ski ride! Maddie
(And discovered that I apparently get seasick.)
(A lot.)

To infinity… and beyond! ~ RunningOnSober
(I only made it to a googlyplex. Then I ran out of gas.)
searching for that pony he so desperately wants (polysyllabicprofundities)
(My therapist would like to meet you to compare notes.)
Naked Tiki Bar ~Rachael B.
(One of those first two words is redundant. Not sure which…)
Boobies!!! Revis
(I thought those were less a place, more of a frame of mind…)
to play a hashtag game on Twitter, but had a mental breakdown instead-Twindaddy
(Isn’t a mental breakdown a prerequisite for twitter?)
where no man has gone before… he could have lit a match a, tho. (UndercoverL)
(Live long. And phosphor.)
(redo) Helping the gov’t decide my secret blogging identity. (UndercoverL)
(Oh, we’ve been watching you for a while. Get your finger out of your nose.)
You’ve been riding some cool waves, haven’t ya? The Bumble Files
(It was the sines and cosines that did me in.)
jet skiing around Istanbul on a trial run. Grippy
(I tried to go around Constantinople, but I guess my map was out of date…)
The Restaurant At The End Of The Universe. sandylikeabeach
(I got to meet the meat. He was tasty.)

(If Woody had gone straight to the police…)

to the asylum for shock therapy (SnB)
(I’m holding out til the knobs go to eleven!)
Nowhere – he was still here! (Stacy)
(That’s pretty existential for a Friday morning…)
To Belgium, where he secretely drank beer and ate waffles in a corner. NBI
(Much more private than eating waffles in the round.)
and chocolate, obvs. Like Armageddon was coming. NBI
(I don’t think I want to say what I’d do with chocolate if Armageddon was coming.)
(Mmmm….)

Philadelphia (Addie)
(It was a little frightening to hear the Rocky theme on the up escalator.)
Running on a giant hamster wheel in his “undies” zannyro
(Nono, that’s my day job.)
Someplace too scary for me … Elyse 54.5
(How did you know I was at the DMV?)
Somewhere fun with his girl (Frank)
(As a rare serious answer, everywhere with my girl is fun. Or at least better. (HI HONEY!!!))
He didn’t ‘go’ anywhere…he used his powers of invisibility. KJ
(Alas, that power only works when I’m around women…)

Congratulations to DJ Matticus for this weeks winning answer, and a great whimsical quote! And from the offered choices, the most popular was He wishes he knew… Ain’t it the truth…
Superman
Soon, Man of Steel (yet another superhero movie) is opening. So it got me wondering…What would bring down Superhero You? And that’s what this week’s poll is.
Answer soon, answer often (and answer honestly in case someone is trying to plot against you), but answer by 2359 EST on Wednesday 19 June, because that’s when this one ends.

And until next we meet, enjoy these…
First, thanks to Linda Vernon for reminding of Phyllis Diller

And finally, because I needed something to fill this space, Jerry Seinfield.

Have a great weekend everyone!

  3. Love the opening tune … a great one to dance merengue! Thanks for the Phyllis Diller clip … which reminds me of a female Rodney Dangerfield!

    Have a good weekend, and don’t forget that today is National Bourbon Day, and Sunday is Fudge Day …. and Saturday you must juggle.

    • Sounds like a busy weekend!
      Songs like that make me want to take dance lessons. Otherwise, I look like a spastic fish.
      When suitably alert, I can juggle up to three tenis balls. Not sure I’m cracked enough to try chainsaws. Maybe next summer?

  11. Great song, Guap. Good beat, you can dance to it. May add that to the running playlist for the weekend.

    and haha, *I* get it! Do I get a gold star?

    Well, unless you’re talking about something else, then I don’t get it. But can I still have my gold star?

    Have a great week, Guap!

  14. I never much cared for Seinfeld either but I liked this clip. He’s much funnier before his voice changed. And that Phyllis Diller clip is hilarious! And I loved the music so much I almost put my back out (actually I think I did) dancing while sitting in my desk chair! HA!

  15. Guapo, I know that Don Omar song! I’ve been hearing it in my boot camp workout for the last 4 months! Hey, now I know who sings it thanks to you! Wow, and that Seinfeld…has he been around that long? Amazing. I could go for checks with dead people on it. Now that makes sense, although I very rarely use checks anymore. Have a great weekend, Guap!

  16. Okay, so you actually SAW Fast & Furious 5? I’m assuming you’ve seen the other four then. That’s ten hours of your life you’ll never get back! I kid–I’ve seen all ten of the original Friday the 13th movies, plus Freddy v. Jason, so I’ve got a couple wasted hours on you at least. Plus, all the bungee jumping and courier flights to Turkey soak up some of that.

    But in regard to F&F, a couple weeks ago I overheard the following snippet of conversation:

    Teen Boy: “Have you seen ‘The Fast & Furious 6’ yet?”
    Teen Girl: Why would I do that?

    Like

    • Actually, I have seen them. *hangs head in shame*.
      I watched them wondering why they made seven of them (seven will be out next year). From four on, it’s a continuous story, linked together by after-the-credits scenes, and they really do get better from four on.

      Overheard by my girl after a kiss concert from two teenage girls (several years ago), refering to Rock All Night, Party Every Day: “I can’t believe Kiss played that Poison song” .

      Meh.

  29. I adore Phyllis Diller. She and Lucille Ball are two of the only actresses I hold in esteem. She managed to make people laugh without a mouthful of obscenities or diminishing anyone else. Great clip.

    I skipped the other one. Never was a Seinfeld fan. Ever.
