And now, a bedtime story from Jeff Goldblum:

Silly Site o' the Day

Poor Bill Watterston. This can't be good. I mean really, Donald and Hobbes? I mean yeah, it perfectly encapsulates the con man's frequent tantrums and outsized ego, but still. Via PZ Myers.

Silly Site o' the Day

Last day of this brief stay-cation, wherein I opted to do absolutely nothing (i.e., reading, playing online games, watching TV, doing the dishes) whilst Robin toiled away in his studio. I love days like this. Looking forward to more soon! One thing I did not do is watch Game of Thrones, on which I gave up when the sex became too graphic and gender-imbalanced in, what, Season One I guess. Plus, violence, which just, ick. But one has to at least keep up with what's going on, even if one doesn't watch. Case in point, this poor Aussie:

Silly Site o' the Day

A long day of driving, first to my brother's house then to Mom's then back home. About five hours in all, but at least they were broken up so I didn't do them all at once. My back has all sorts of interesting twinges, but otherwise I'm fine and I made it home before the heavens opened up. And because I spent much of the day with Mom,I thought she'd like these anthropomorphized paperbacks (via io9).

Silly Site o' the Day

I don't even want to talk about today's slight misstep, because everything was pretty much reserved in the Riggs Residence by noontime. Still, so many errors in a row have a way of paralyzing a person, so as promised I spent the day laying low, getting a lot of comics read, doing the dishes and finances, fairly safe things. Didn't want to take a chance on ironing! Let's hope tomorrow and Tuesday help give me more perspective on things. It's all small stuff! Speaking of perspective, here's someone who Disney-fies things. Not sure whether or not that means he dignifies them.

Silly Site o' the Day

My bad luck streak continues, as I inadvertently erased my entire shopping list while at the supermarket and now I'll have to start from scratch with the app all over again. I'm starting to wonder how tomorrow will get off on the wrong foot. After shopping I decided to lay low through tomorrow night. Come Monday in New Jersey, there's no place to hide. Dunno what's going on, I'm stumped:

Silly Site o' the Day

After my no-good, horrible, very bad day at work - just a bunch of stupid little things that added up - I could really use four days off. Fortunately I have that! Not to mention, this Brexit business is tearing families apart. At the moment, Robin and I are respectfully disagreeing on some aspects, but I fear it may not be long before he brings out that wet noodle with which to pummel me. Fortunately, we still agree on at least two things, comics (he makes 'em, I read 'em) and footie (I watch it, he falls asleep during it), so perhaps this will bring peace:

Silly Site o' the Day

I'm not feeling very motivated at the moment. Maybe a TED talk will help:

Silly Site o' the Day

High marks (and lower numbers) all around from my diabetes doctor! Took a half day off because I have a ridiculous amount of vacation time I haven't yet taken, so I hit home around 4 PM and am just chilling now, hitting this random comic generator (via Wil Wheaton).

Silly Site o' the Day

Long, tough day at work. I could use some silliness. How about some bad parking notes (as in, notes on bad parking, not badly-written notes... oh, you know what I mean)?
