Friday Foolishness – Clima(c)tic Edition

Today’s Music: Parquet Courts – Borrowed Time

Hope you all had a good week! And if you didn’t, well, it’s about to get better, because the Friday Foolishness leads you right into Friday night. Ok, maybe not right into it. But until sunset rolls around, you can always read some blogs, like some of what I read this week…
Nicholas Conley saw the beast, and named it the Self Cannibalistic Creative Monster. Becky talked about the tragedy that is book abandonment, and More Issues Than Time Magazine got a job!
Oh, and check out AR Neal – her book is available (free til Monday)!

Thanks for such fun reading this week, and I can’t wait to see what y’all you come up with next week!
But last week, there was a poll. A special poll, a Birthday Poll. Here’s are the wishes you made to go with Grippy’s cake. (As always, my comments are blown out in italics.)

count all the birthday wishes on this poll… buddhakat
(As long as she does it in her Sesame Street The Count voice!)
wishing herself the happiest birthday ever!!! buddhakat
(Until next year!)
why, submitting na answer to her own poll, of course! buddhakat
(I’d have to pick her as the winner too…)
anything but submitting answer to her own poll! buddhakat
(Wait – people get to submit answers to these???)
All of the above – John Phillips
(Pity this answer wasn’t on the bottom…)
Enjoying a special Wombie party, after the Zombies have gone ๐Ÿ™‚ Andro
(Umm…W comes before Z…)
Calling into my realm of wickedness ๐Ÿ™‚ Well I only said. Andro
(Ah, so something a bit more lighthearted for her birthday.)
Drinking a beer with Guapo (Frank)
(Isn’t that more of a gift for me?)
Maybe getting reborn. Or rebirthed. Fresh is best! butimbeautiful
(She’s the Birthday Mento!)
obvs she should come to Belgium! NBI
(This non-snarky response is a testament to how little I know about Belgium. Something something Beer something Chocolate? )
or we could all send her some pie – NBI
(I don’t think you want to give that much leeway to this crowd…)
Doing some gripping – Benzeknees
(Hold on…)
Hanging out with her favorite (and only) daughter. – Lily In Canada
(Love the way you rigged the “favorite daughter” contest!)
Maggie O.C.says: Mocking weiners and shopping
(You’re so political.)
ummmmmm…. PMAO
(PMAO speechless is the best birthday gift for anyone!)
Pole dancing in a burka. x, Becca
(Doesn’t one defeat the purpose of the other?)
All of the above, naturally. Kanerva
(Always neglecting the sides…)
Partying on Cloud Nine with all of us and the Kinks! Linda Vernon
(Oh, I think we all know what kind of “cloud” rock stars make…)
Gettin’ nekkid! Rutabaga
(Or just Stayin’ nekkid…)
Saying “I’m 29 of course!” all day and forever (its what i do) Marie Nicole
(But she doesn’t look a day over 28!)
playing Angry Birds on her cell SnB
(She killed someone over Angry Birds?!? Oh, sorry. Thought that said “in” her cell.)

Breakdancing to an 80’s songs while balancing tequila on her head. What? KJ
(Shouldn’t she do something out of the ordinary for her birthday?)

Congratulations to Grippy for this weeks..well…just for being her. And from the offered choices, the most popular was enjoying the hell out of herself, and knowing her online friends appreciate that she’s there. (Hey, they can’t all be funny, people.). To which I add a resounding HECK YEAH!
And once again, Happy birthday, Grippy, and thanks for your company.
And now here we are in this week. Heat, rain, a bit of cool. I know the climate is changing, I just didn’t realize it was changing every day.
So that’s this week’s poll is about.
Answer early, answer often. But answer by 2359 EDT, 7 August, because that’s when this one ends.
(And if you leave an โ€œOtherโ€ answer, leave a way to identify you, and Iโ€™ll link back next week.)

And until next week, when I hope we all meet again, I hope you enjoy this.

Have a great week everyone!
