Weekend Round-Up

I'm off tomorrow to do all those little things that, taken together, always seem to give one such a sense of satisfaction - haircut, oil change for the car, changing all the burned out lightbulbs, taking in the porch furniture for the season, filling up the bird feeders, etc., etc. Plus, this weekend is probably the last time I'm going to have to mow the lawn this year, a milestone I've been looking forward to since, say, July.

In the meantime, I have to go home this evening and explain to a very upset seven year old that no, she will not die if she doesn't get a flu shot.

As Professor Kirk said, what do they teach children in these schools?

Yip! at you later.

Did you post twice in tribute of his silliness?

My favorite bit of Cleesiness comes from a book my sister cave me commemorating Python. They were filming in Scotland and the weather had them all stuck in a car together, so they decided to kill time by having a contest to see who could come op woth the most humorous declension of the verb "To sheep-worry". Cleese won with the present pluperfect "I am about to have been sheep-worried".

So what you're saying is that the final lawn mowing is not a "grim milestone."

Wait - you take your outside furniature in during the wintery times? Woah. That's crazy.
