Enough Kisses for a Day!

If I give my daughter too many kisses, too quickly, she covers her face and says, "Enough kisses for a day!"

Today is a fantastic day for multifaceted reasons. First, galinda822 is not only in a most unusually playful mood the likes of which I have not experienced before, but it marks the diametrical opposite of her mood yesterday. And as there are only three of us in the office today, yesterday that would have been two few, today it feels just right. I was up late last night blending and creating the graphic for last nights post - yet still managed to get a full eight-hours of sleep. Tonight its a case of Corona and movie night.

We had an excellent discussion on the possible nomenclature of drax0r's possible new toy...

Then debated why Henry Wadsworth Longfellow would fabricate the story of Paul Revere eclipsing the real-life story of Israel Bissel. I won with the following Yiddish adaptation of "Paul Revere's Ride"


Harken me kinder and gimme a listel
Of the miten-tog gezuntel of Israel Bissel,
On the yom of 18, in yortseit of past;
A yungermantshik mount ferd fast!
Nisht do gedacht from da var...



Tonight, I'm firing up the grill, lighting a cigar, wrapping my meat-hooks around an ice cold bottle of Corona, and grilling salmon. I wish you were here.

I'm really enjoying the last track of the new BSG soundtrack, Black Market which is very Marrakesh in tone. It stays with me.

Started whistling tunes from Paint Your Wagon much to the consternation of my staff. Sucks to be them.

So sitting on my Daily Service Review this morning, where the only thing I am required to utter are the words, "Zero Green" severely limits my expression, I instead chose to play this. In the cacophony which followed I was asked to play it again for its humor value, heard something which suggested that it was the epitome of laziness, and applauded for creativity. Lots of different perspectives for two simple words.

celtmanx I do not have your Conan DVD. I've never seen it, and don't have any plans to.

Talked with Tony on the phone today a little bit - that's always fun, and my mother twice, which is almost unprecedented.

““I was just a boy when the infidels came to my village in their Blackhawk helicopters. The infidels fired at the oil fields and they lit up like the eyes of Allah. Burning oil rained down from the sky and cooked everything it touched. I could only hide myself and cry as my goats were consumed by the fiery black liquid death. In the midst of the chaos, I could swear that I heard my goats screaming for help. As quickly as they had come, the infidels were gone. It was on that day I put a jihad on them. And if you don't believe it, then you'd better kill me now, because I'll put a jihad on you, as well. Ronald McDonald.””
