No need to respond. It’s just a rhetorical question. Ha ha ha … #iamfoolish
Now … last night, I must confess that I stayed up late reading the first chapter of this book by Stephen Leather.
And isn’t that an awesome post? I’ve become much more interested in Stephen Leather’s blog, since he stopped posting about
spam bad business propositions things that are way to good to be true. Ha ha ha …
Or has he? Ha ha ha …
And not only do you get to read about Stephen Leather’s books and stuff, but you get to see the time in London. Awesome!
But don’t be fooled by the mean-looking photo! Because Stephen sounds really awesome (on his voice mail). Ha ha ha …
I’d done a better job of planning our trip life were fair and I wasn’t an idiot, this could’ve been a totally different photo of Stephen Leather smiling at Harrogate.
Oh, well. Next time, when my sister and I go to Ireland and the UK. I hope!
And speaking of my sister, here’s what she posted on Facebook
ages a month ago! Texts from Nancy Drew! Ha ha ha … awesome!
This is totally awesome, but I’d have to write a whole ‘nuther post about that. Maybe on another blog. Who knows? I don’t make predictions or plan things too far in advance.
So … this morning over breakfast, my husband brought up this band, Pussy Riot.
Clearly, those women are in a truly sucky situation. But are their voices stilled? No!!!
My husband is the kind of awesome guy who can appreciate this. And even makes a mean cappuccino! And dinner, even when he’s sick and in a bad mood. For all these things, I am truly grateful.
Now … here’s another topic my husband and I have discussed. What’s the point of living, if you can’t enjoy it? Isn’t life’s pleasures, including finding joy in our work and sharing that with others the whole point? Or is it?
Which brings me back to Woody Allen, Helen Keller and silver linings!
And this quote: “It seems to me that if you or I must choose between two courses of thought or action, we should remember our dying and try so to live that our death brings no pleasure on the world.” — John Steinbeck
I’ll never look at Singer sewing machines the same way. Ha ha ha …
So … when I said I wanted to read Stephen Leather’s new book, I really meant it. Primarily because I’ve read THE BASEMENT and loved it!
Great work, Stephen. And points to you for knowing about Terry v. Ohio! A case my character, Sam, mentions in this book.
But, I digress. Or do I? Ha ha ha …
Anyhow, here are some things I found on the Web, yesterday and today:
We saw most of this movie yesterday. You can listen to the whole freaking thing on YouTube! Wow!
It’s all about bad fathers who try to be better. And good sons who make bad choices. Or something like that.
Holy shit!!! That’s an evil-looking snake. This reminds me of another story about the time my brother saw a cougar on his porch. But I won’t go into all that. Not here and now.
Well done, Jenny Lawson! Who can blame you for killing that snake that might be Hitler.
If Hitler were reincarnated, he might well come back as a snake. Of course, snakes can come in various forms.
But I digress. Again. Ha ha ha …
I still don’t believe in paying for reviews.
“Hands Around the Library” Book Launch! This takes place right in my own (proverbial) backyard.
This is why you should dance while you can.
Here’s a real survivor story. But wait! She’s an American who uses the word “mobile.” What a phoney! At least, according to some people who won’t be named. Ha ha ha …
Gene Weingarten and I are in (almost) total agreement. Awesome! I’ve often blogged that DC is the last place on earth to find coolness. Hell, Marissa Payne was doing this before I was. On her now defunct blog, which I deemed a Blog of Note.
So … Gene, you may have missed the news that Marissa is a tastemaker. Deemed so by your own newspaper. Ha ha ha …
Also, Gene, you totally forgot Duke Ellington! Seriously! For shame. Ha ha ha …
Kidding, of course.
I hear ya loud and clear on that one, Jenny Lawson.
And if that makes no sense to you, you should read this book right now!
I read this book while on
vacation holiday. And all I can say is “Thank you!”
Crowdfunding works well for dancers! Way awesome.
Here’s a front page story for you. People doing things to be awesome!
If you read nothing else, read Pricky City. I hear that! Ha ha ha …
at last finally, here’s a tune from Nik Nak’s Old Peculiar.
You go, girl!
Plus here’s an awesome quote:
“I suppose more than anything else I’d like to be an old man with a good face, like Hitchcock or Picasso. They know that life is not just a popularity contest.” — Sean Connery, born 25 August 1930
You said it, Sean!
Ha ha ha …
Say what again! Ha ha ha …
“You can’t handle the truth!” – Colonel Jessup.
That’s it for me. I’ve got a gamey (sp?) hand and I simply can’t go on!
Ha ha ha … Monty Python is awesome.
But Shakespeare may have been Sicilian. And we went to Sicily and Italy, our first time out of the country. And that trip was totally awesome.
Now, we drink espresso. Even though we’re not actually Italian. My husband’s ancestry is Italian and Sicilian, but he’s an American.
No need to respond, but if you choose to comment, please take this short quiz, first.
Thank you! Again and again.
PS: My desk is now much cleaner than this!
I am making real progress on this project. Awesome.
More photos to come. Eventually.
Well, here’s a quotation to consider.
“When wealth is lost, nothing is lost: when health is lost, something is lost: when character is lost, all is lost.” — Billy Graham
Ha ha ha …
Amen! Ha ha ha …
