Friday Foolishness – Post Apocalyptic Edition


Today’s Music: Jimmy Witherspoon – Good Rockin’ Tonight

Welcome back to the Friday Foolishness, after a tumultuous week.
I’m thinking about using this space at the top of the Friday Foolishness space to highlight some of the posts I’ve seen over the week.
Thoughts? (After all, you guys are going to have to read it…)

But for now, lets just jump in to last weeks results, shall we?
Many of you had excellent ideas for how to spend your Friday the 13th (as always, italics are mine):
Um.. I think it is the 12th..Are you SURE?? Cause I think it’s not. lizziec
(Great, now I’m confused too…)
Q-tip my ears: Barking In The Dark
(No no, we stopped singing the hokey pokey. I hope…)
Drink myself blind and quiet the voices
(Quiets all the voices for me. Except the ones that tell me to keep drinking…)
make sure not to sit in row 13 on flight 1356 from Denver (yikes!)
(I sincerely hope you made it back ok!)
Bag the blow-up doll idea and make my hair look like Sarah Palin’s
(Perhaps make the blow-up dolls hair look like Sarah Palins instead?)
Toss Mensa daughter’s bedroom for good drugs. Friday the 13th is a lucky day!
(I can’t condone that kind of behavior! If you found any, I insist you turn them over at once to me for proper…disposal. hehehe)
Get out my Anal Probe kit.
(I knew that was you!!!)
Write an angry letter to my congressman about how there keeps being Friday 13ths
(Good luck. But I’m not sure many in the current congress know how to read…)
…be closing on my house. Nope! The builder pushed it back 5 weeks. Grumble.
(That sucks. But it does leave you time to participate in a bunch more of these polls!)
Wait, it’s the 13th – of January? That was one hellava hangover. Sandylikeabeach
(I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again. You,young lady, are an inspiration. And I’m pretty sure you just one this weeks poll for that!!!)

Well, Sandylikeabeach wins this week’s poll (It almost went to H.E. Ellisfor being the only one to pick BRRRRAAAIINNSSS!!!. But I’m not sure I should be encouraging that kind of thing…)
And for those who want to know, the most chosen answer this poll was
I don’t care what the date is – it’s FRIDAY!!!!! WOOHOO!!!

Which leaves us with this weeks poll.
The big event this week was the Anti SOPA/PIPA.
Which made me wonder… (polling closes next Thurs at Midnight)
(Leave your name if you enter an other for a linkback)(and so we know who said what!)

And to keep you amused until next week (or the internet does shut down)…
The Woody Allen Firetruck routine.
Enjoy, vote often, see you around the bend…

It’s your problem too.

Days Til Spring: 63

Guapola will return with
FRIDAY FOOLISHNESS

Unless SOPA or PIPA pass. then there’s no telling how fast Hotspur, with his images of Unicorns, or H.E. Ellis with her Star Trek references, or Kayjai with her Doritos, or Sandylikeabeach with…Actually, she should be fine. Or my music of the day will get our asses yanked out of the virtual world and thrown into all too real legal turmoil.

So do something. It will affect you.

Many websites are blacked out today to protest proposed U.S. legislation that threatens internet freedom: the Stop Internet Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Protect IP Act (PIPA). From personal blogs to giants like WordPress and Wikipedia, sites all over the web — including this one — are asking you to help stop this dangerous legislation from being passed. Please watch the video below to learn how this legislation will affect internet freedom, then click the ribbon up top to take action.
