Decisions, Decisions

The Missus is gone for most of the rest of the day.

On the one hand, I need to plunge the potty in the Llama-ettes' bathroom, scrub all the sinks, clean up myriad books and toys scattered all about, dust, wipe down the kitchen table and swifter the floor, vacuum, put away some laundry, start the bedsheets through the wash and do the taxes.

On the other hand, I may need to prove yet again for the edification of Steve-O and those like him that in Age of Kings, my British longbowmen can beat the living crap out of any group of panty-waste Frankish knights, namby-pamby Viking berserkers or sissy-boy Saracens.

Hmmmm.....What would Brian Boitano do?

UPDATE: Housework wins. Insert your own Felix Ungar/Frasier Crane joke here, but I can't abide an unkempt house. It gives me the crazies. In case you're wondering, children's gel toothpaste is like no other substance on earth. When dry, it is so hard one needs high explosives to shift it. When moist, it is of a stickiness that makes syrup seem like WD-40. (No, Robert, this ain't The Bleat. Call it The Yip if you like.)

UPDATE DEUX: Because The Colossus made me laugh (we seem to have scarily similar brain patterns) and because I know Mom never saw the South Park movie and is even now scratching her head at the reference and also because it's Friday afternoon and what the hell, I reprint here the lyrics from "What Would Brian Boitano Do?" a song that shoulda won an Oscar:

What would Brian Boitano do
If he was here right now,
He'd make a plan
And he'd follow through,
That's what Brian Boitano'd do.

When Brian Boitano was in the olympics,
Skating for the gold,
He did two salcows and a triple lutz,
While wearing a blind fold.

When Brian Boitano was in the alps,
Fighting grizzly bears,
He used his magical fire breath,
And saved the maidens fair.

So what would Brian Boitano do
If he were here today,
I'm sure he'd kick an ass or two,
That's what Brian Boitano'd do.

I want this V-chip out of me,
It has stunted my vo-ca-bu-lar-y.

And I just want my mom
To stop fighting everyone

For Wendy I'll be an activist too,
Cause that's what Brian Boitano'd do.

And what would Brian Boitano do,
He'd call all the kids in town,
And tell them to unite for true
That's what Brian Boitano'd do.

When Brian Boitano travelled through time
To the year 3010,
He fought the evil robot kings
and saved the human race again

And when Brian Boitano built the pyramids,
He beat up Kublai Kahn.

Cause Brian Boitano doesn't take shit from an-y-body

So let's all get together,
And unite to stop our moms
And we'll save Terrance and Phillip too,
Cause that's what Brian Boitano'd do.

And we'll save Terrance and Phillip too,
Cause that's what Brian Boitano'd dooooo,
That's what Brian Boitano'd do.

He'd make a plan and he'd follow through . . . . that's what Brian Boitano'd do!

I'd say that you need to go all Agincourt on his ass.

Good song, but not the one from the movie that should have won an award.

Since you're getting domestic, I shall refrain from posting lyrics.

Did I choose the wrong song? Eh, blame Canada!
