Seven Times Five

Monday, July 31st, 2006

The answer is either how old TheMan is today or how hot it is in degrees C.

Or something like that. My ears hurt, I best not be getting Mark-Matt’s cold. Mrrrmph. But first – plants!

My potato toe is doing much better, thankyouverymuch. It looks worse what with the bruising coming on to full purply maturity but it’s less swollen and I can bend it around a lot more without setting off the hurting. The verdict has come back as really jammed good rather than broken or dislocated.

And I bet you thought this was going to be some massive green report eh? Heh. Instead, say hi to my new truck bangle – FSM. That’s Flying Spaghetti Monster for those of you not into alternate Intelligent Design theories. I think he compliments my Darwin-fish which is on the other end of the vehicle quite nicely.

Have you been touched by his noodley appendage?

The Art Fair has landed.


Tuesday, July 18th, 2006

One of the blimps is in town on some nefarious blimp mission, possibly having to do with Art Fair (which opens tomorrow!), and we caught sight of it puttering around fairly low yesterday. Mrrrrr-put-put-put-put. It wasn’t so low as to have to obey traffic laws, but it looked that sort of low where the blimp might be looking for its blimp mooring. Which was strange since there wasn’t a blimp-port on the side of town it was wandering around. We watched it for a bit, because blimps are cool and because it was the lowest I’d ever seen a blimp. That is until it hit a 45 degree down angle and dive bombed its way closer to the earth. MrrrrRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRrrrrr-put-put-put-put. There was a short span of time in which I thought we were going to witness a blimp-cident. OH! The HUMANITY!

90 What?!?

Monday, July 17th, 2006

I don’t know if it’s because I’m getting older, fatter, more forgetful or more a victim of global warming but dayum the weather seems to have gone eXtreme beastly. Granted I’m a very fair weather kind of person: I like snow but not for long periods of time and not if I have to actually get anywhere in it, I like rain except when I have to walk in it, I like sun unless I am too warm in it…etc and so forth. I like seasonal change too, why can’t I have my cake and eat it? Anyway, this weekend was the worst heat and humidity I’ve encountered all year and it’s only the middle of July. I’m going to melt into a puddle of goo and then fry up like egg whites come August!

Really Fine Day

Friday, July 14th, 2006

I don’t know what it is about today, but I’m having a mighty good day.


Thursday, July 13th, 2006

The law of state funded institutions is in glorious effect today. It sounds like a bunch of angry dentists are hammering around in my head except my whole office is shaking.
