Today’s Music: Rogue Traders – Voodoo Child
And here we are on Friday again. I took Monday off for travel time for last weekends sailing. Which means I was overworked to make up for the day off. Sigh.
But in the midst of the rushing, I was able to pop into the blogosphere and read some great posts. Free Penny Press turned me on to Little Free Libraries. No Blog Intended had a rough week, but sometime today, she will be done with high school, so CONGRATULATIONS!!!
And Roly told us about the challenges of living with a difficult stomach
You guys (and all of you out there) were my small island of calm in a week moving way too fast. Sincere thanks for that!
Some of the busyness also came from keeping track of the delightfully twisted responses to last weeks poll. We asked What Should The Zombie Battlecry Be?. You guys didn’t hold back.
Sick. Disturbed. Hilarious.
Here’s what you said (as always, I try to be witty in italics):
None of the above. So last century. Kanerva
(I think you're confused, Kanerva – it's vampires that live for centuries.)
hhhhmmmmmpoooorrrrrkkkkkkrrrrriiiiiiiinnnnnnnnddddddsssss – John Phillips
(Homer Simpson – zombie extraordinaire)
Since my kids are flesh eaters,the battlecry isM MMMAAAAAMMMMMMAAAAAAAA! SnaapyG
(I’d think with 4 flesh eaters to manage you’d be the zombie…)
withhhh spriiinnkkkllllleessss… nooooo piiickkklleesssssss lizziec
(That could work, but pregnant zombies are a pretty small niche…)
EEEEEAAAAATTTTTT MEEEEEEEEEE! (Hotspur)
(Perhaps you don’t understand how the zombie/person relationship works…)
I WAAAAANT TOOOO EEEEEAT YOOOOOOUR FAAAAAAAACE! Lilly
(That’s only the Miami contigent, Lilly)
How are you doing? NBI
(Battlecry, NBI, not pickup line!)
“Hmm, seems my leg has fallen asleep. No wait, it’s just missing. My mistake.”
(Wouldnt that be the post battle cry?)
Pardon me. Have you any grey poupon? Stay Abnormal
(Do zombies ride in limousines?)
BBBAAAATTHHHH SSSSAAAAALLLTTTSSS! ~flame
(WE HAVE A WINNER!!!)
OLeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee’ free penny press
(Only if it’s zombies versus werebulls)
Nothing….bet that would make you think.
(Dangnabit, there’s no thinking in these polls!!!)
(Hey, I’ve sounded like that when calling for what would prove to be the last roun- Crap. I’m a zombie.)
(Nah, they’d get sued for copyright infraction by the bug spray people.)
How can it not be BRRRAAAAIIIIINNNSSSSS!!! (Frank)
(You’re right Frank. Mostly because Zombies aren’t very creative.)
Congratulations to ~flame for her winning answer! And from the choices offered, BRRRAAAAIIIINNNNSSSS!!! (c’mon – it’s a classic!) was the most popular. Because there’s nothing wrong with tradition!
But the living dead aren’t right around the corner. So we have time for some other summery pursuits. If you’re like me, (then your shrink is overcharging you, you have no problems most of a case of tequila can’t fix, and) rollercoasters just bore you. Strapped in to a piece of high technology that is inspected frequently and maintained to the highest standard.
So this week, name your own. Pick a name that really conveys the essence of what your coaster is all about. Hey, if the lottery gods smile on us, we may even build it!
If you write in an answer leave a way to recognize you, and I’ll link back to you next week. Vote as often as you like, but do it before 2359 EST on Thursday, 14 June, because that’s when this one ends.
And until next week, I’ll leave you with these.
First, yes, this guy is crazier than me. Maybe. Possibly.
Ok, probably not…
And something a bit calmer, I got to see this float on the river in view of my office. It was something to see, with a flotilla accompanying it!
Have a great week all!
