Friday Foolishness – Hideous Shirt Edition


Today’s Music: Green Day – Let Yourself Go
Note on Today’s Music: It’s a bit potty mouth. But it’s a fun tune.

No. No, that definitely wasn't in the forecast...

No. No, that definitely wasn’t in the forecast…


I’m actually a little happier than usual this Friday, despite a long week at work! I have no medical facilities to visit for anyone, I have two more concerts (that I know of) to look forward to this month, and of course, I got to read some great blogs!
These links are a bit more serious than the usual posts I put here, but they were moving and made me stop and think. Hope you enjoy them too. NBI talked about having and breaking a connection to a person that was an addiction. Steph Rogers spoke with shame about the actions of her countrymen, and BrickhouseChick taught me more than I had known about anorexia
Thanks to them for a set of brave posts, and everyone else out there for all that you share.

On a lighter (or more frustrating. Whatever.) note, last week there was a poll! And it was about every governments least favorite topic, climate change! Here’s what you said.

Why? WHY?!?!?!

Why? WHY?!?!?!


But this week, we’re focused on the climate that is summer. And we’re using an old classic as an inspiration.
If you don’t recognize the song, count yourself lucky.
Trust me.
So come on in from the beach to enter your answers by 2359 EDT on Wed, 14 Aug, because that’s when this one ends.
(And if you leave an β€œOther” answer, leave a way to identify you, and I’ll link back next week.)

While we tally the ans*burp*wers, enjoy this.
Since it’s occasionally about never growing up around here, I present…Ralph Macchio.

And for those of you who must know, here’s the song from the poll. Don’t say I never did anything to for you.

Catch y’all on the other side.

Hot And Spurious


Today’s Music: Rupert Holmes – Escape
Note on Today’s Music: Because I know he hates this song. hehehe.

(if you’re wondering what’s going on, check here.)
Many of you follow the refreshingly bizarre Edward Hotspur. So you already know he has a thing for Unicorns pissing rainbows. Here’s why. Sorry Hotspur, had to borrow your style for this one.

He was sitting around a campfire, enjoying his gassy beans- no wait, he was enjoying beans and then the gas that followed. He’d taken off his riding boots to relax, setting them to warm next to the fire. A unicorn burst into his campsite setting off mayhem among his compatriots.
They ran around in confusion, dodging the uriney torrent of warm rainbow issuing from the unicorn’s nethers. Only Edward kept his head about him. He reached for a boot, still with its spur on.
Billy Joe Bob Mellissa Jr yelled “You can’t drive off a unicorn with spurs!”
“You can when they’re red hot!” shouted back Edward. He took the boot from the fire, and jammed the red hot spur into an engorged opalescent unicorn testicle.
The unicorn turned bright red, squeaked, and darted off into the woods to find some bactine.
And that’s why he’s known as Edward Hotspur.
True story.

Now let’s take a musical break, from someone I was recently introduced to by Mr. Hotspur.
This is Miyavi. He is the hottest chick I’ve seen in a while. (Yes, it’s a guy.)

Scenes From The End Of The Post
I’m writing this at my desk as the sun streams through the windows. You’d think it would be wetter if it was streaming. Unless you’re streaming porn. That could be wet. Unless it’s home improvement porn. Lots of sandpaper. Probably not so wet.
Hold on, boss wants me to do something. Ok, I did something. I told him I wasn’t going to do it. That’s something, right? Might be the last something I do here, but still.
So where was I? Oh, at my desk. So it’s where I am. Can you have been somewhere and say you were there if you’re still there without having been gone anywhere?
Wait – My brain hurts.. I have to stop channelling Edward Hotspur, today’s flashmob victim honoree before my head explodes.

You should check him out. It’s like no other blog you’ve seen.
Rock on Hotspur, and keep on blogging!

Oh, and buy His Book

In closing, I would just like to say…
Salma Hayek.
