Silly Site o' the Day

A good day - the back loosened up enough for me to not only ditch the cane, but to actually stand on my own and shower! Feels much better to be clean and relatively pain-free, even the foot ailment seems better. Finished skimming through the stack of local papers going back to last September, finished all my DCU comics, even keeping pace with blog reading again! Whether that will translate into a blogaround sometime soon is anybody's guess, but it's been a remarkably productive weekend so far. Speaking of productivity, apparently the SoHo Post-It war is over, but the McDonald's/Sav-Mor battle is still underway. I salute the troops in these, my favorite kind of conflicts!

Silly Site o' the Day

The good news is, we got all our errands done by noon. The bad news is, my back has now gone out, possibly from throwing my body out of alignment as a result of my Sisterhood of the Traveling Arthritis hitting my left foot. I'm getting around with a cane now, and about to start a dose of naproxyn, hoping that everything will have straightened itself out by tomorrow. Good job I have two more recovery days before I get back to work! At least I've gotten some TV watching and reading done. But I still can't identify books from their accompanying maps (via PZ Myers).

Silly Site o' the Day

Speaking of Key & Peele and charities, as I was yesterday, here's some primo cat blogging:



The Mary Sue has the videos which gave rise to this silliness.

Silly Site o' the Day

Apparently it's Red Nose Day here in the US, so I'd like to feature two of my favorite comedians:

Silly Site o' the Day

Our little May mini-heatwave has begun. I hear it's hot enough to set a whole bunch of matches afire:

Silly Site o' the Day

I'm really getting burnt out by this protracted presidential campaign. Can we please have reform, someday, that limits the campaign to a few months? Here, have some bad lip reading:



There, that's a little better. Via Susie.

Silly Site o' the Day

All Hail Eris; Hail Discordia! Today is the Goddess' holy day, as I recall from a few lifetimes ago, the numbers "5" and "23" being big deals and all that. It's in the book, somewhere. So am I, by the way (page 11, birth name). But that's neither here nor there. What's a good, Discordian silly site, then? How about Pangram Tweets (via Laughing Squid)? That's some nice symmetry there.

Today is my office's annual Family Day, and this year it's at Shea Stadium Citi Field! Here's something to get me in the mood:



Can't wait!

Silly Site o' the Day

Must be graduation day around these parts. When we pulled out of the U-shaped driveway separating our row of flats from the actual street, there was nary a parking space to be found, and here on the Bronkers border there's almost always something available. Thank goodness nobody knows there are tons of spaces to park along our driveway! Hope some of those graduates were smart enough to use LOL My Thesis (via Laughing Squid)...

Silly Site o' the Day

Good day at work, but far busier than I expected. Nice dinner out with Robin, but an unnecessarily long bus commute home. Internet, please make me feel better with awkward pictures of men and cats!
