Silly Site o' the Day

Here's John Oliver's interstitial between his actual shows:

Haven't seen any cicadas yet, the ground's way too cold, but I hear dogs think they're extremely tasty...

Silly Sites o' the Day

I'll have to interrupt passing along interesting Twitter feeds, as it's May the Fourth (Be With You), aka Star Wars Day. Let's begin with this gem via Laughing Squid:

Ah, nostalgia. Now for the modern stuff, courtesy of io9 and other places:

So, did you celebrate with a barbecue on your Death Star Fire Pit? Or did you just listen to some soothing Death March music?

That last one is also via Laughing Squid. Apparently these ARE the harps you're looking for.

Continuing with Creative Twitter Feeds this week we have James Fridman, discussed here and here. A great combination of quality Photoshopping and snarkiness!

Silly Site o' the Day

I'm not terribly fond of days that begin with insomnia. So I spent much of the day trying to stay awake enough to deal with my workload, and am about to collapse for the evening now.

Silly Site o' the Day

White Rabbits, and happy May Day! I hope the rest of the month goes as well as today did, at least as far as "stuff-do-age."

Even cooked myself an English breakfast, heavy on the onions and mushrooms. The only downside was the dankness, which penetrated and permeated the house even with the windows closed. I know we need the rain, but it's not that fun to shiver through. Going to shower and bed now, I feel like I deserve it. But first, let's dance:

Silly Site o' the Day

A drop-dead gorgeous day today, at least four about the four hours we went to Macy Park in the hopes of getting some good blossom photos (in vain, a fair amount of green but no other colors like there are around our neighborhood) and then shopping. Then it got a bit gloomy again and the rest is a haze because I spent most of the afternoon sleeping. Perhaps I'll be more of a gadabout after I retire, like these very dapper seniors. Then again, I don't think I could ever be that stylish.

Silly Site o' the Day

Yesterday was Take Your Kids to Work day, which our office celebrates, but thank goodness I didn't have to converse that much with any kids, 'cause I just don't cotton to how those dang young'uns chit-chat nowadays no how no way. Thank goodness for Teen Slang Updated for Adults:

So cold in this apartment, second night running... I really need a hot shower and some time under the covers watching last night's Colbert...

Stay warm, y'all!

Silly Site o' the Day

Should I read anything into the news that we'll have (as Melissa puts it) Corporate Power Failure Carly Fiorina (talk about playing the "woman card"!) to kick around a bit longer as of this Administrative Professionals Day? I don't know, but some things I do know:

All signs point to - no, on the other hand, they're all pointless, or we're just doomed as a society...
