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." Ironing done, catalog shopping organized for the next time I want to buy things, finances updated, DVR'ed shows... well, that would take more time than I have, but I made a bit of a dent in that. 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:

Silly Site o' the Day

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...

Silly Site o' the Day

Had my annual physical today, and all this walking has resulted in both a mild weight loss and a very sore foot. But overall clean bill of health, although I'm sure I'm nowhere near as hearty as Her Majesty. What was going on with her when she was my age anyway? (Via Laughing Squid.)

Silly Site o' the Day

Yesterday we took in the American Museum of Natural History (well, mostly the fourth floor with the dinosaurs) with our friend Tom from CT, so today we were pretty exhausted and did nothing after the shopping. Still and all, I keep feeling like there are Things I need to be doing. I have yet to upload yesterday's photos to my album or Facebook, I haven't filed comics yet, I feel like I'm falling behind again... and yet, it's so tempting to just sit here and virtually hunt the Loch Ness Monster (via Laughing Squid)

Silly Site o' the Day

It's the 500th anniversary of Shakespeare's passing the 1500th-and-something anniversary of St. George's death, but it's only been about 100 years or so that we've been able to chronicle chick beauty:

Silly Site o' the DAy

Since last Monday was the 110th anniversary of the San Francisco earthquake, I thought I'd run these then-and-now composite photos.
