Another odds and ends post, brought to you by our sponsor: Hope’s scattered mind.
First, Frank would like you to know that sandwiches taste infinitely superior when cut into triangles rather than squares. However, even squares beat pure, uncut bread. If you disagree, he’d like to see you disprove his theory with a gummy bear war. Winner eats all.
Second, I probably should explain what happened here last Monday when my blog asploded. For whatever reason — probably selection by lottery — my post on British humour was picked up by WordPress for its homepage for that one day. Hence a hit rate that was ten times my normal number. To all the newcomers who stuck, welcome! And to those of you who are regular readers, thanks for hanging on for a bit of a wild ride. 😎
Next, a few links I’ve been meaning to post for a while. Have you seen that calendar called Porn for Women? It features a bunch of dopey looking guys doing housework, and they say things like, “Gee, honey, I like being completely emasculated and oppressed by domestic servitude. Can’t imagine why you’ve had an issue with it all these years.”
Okay, that’s a complete lie. They’re actually kind of cute even though they make me squirm when I imagine what the ToolMaster would think about them. Or what I’d think of them if the tables were turned and not set with china, candles and flowers by men wearing aprons; but by myself, after years of oppression and domestic servitude. (Ha! Like that’s ever gonna happen. 😉 )
Here’s one example:
Well yesterday, courtesy of Smart Bitches, Trashy Books, I found out about a hoot of a website. It’s wicked smaht, funny, and they are kind enough to allow people to embed their comics. On their site, when you hold your mouse over the comic strip, pop-ups appear. In this instance it says “Yes, there are a lot of longing looks across the bridge of Galactica first, but that’s the beside the point!”
The reason I’m telling your about them right now is their recent strip is connected to the Porn for Women photos above.
WARNING: RUDE WORD BELOW!
Hee. Since I like geek humour, I’ve put it in my sidebar in the Emergency Laughs section for easy access.
Last, a cute parody of Michelle Pfeiffer’s Dangerous Minds.
Otherwise, on the improved-fitness meme, I continue to walk, and the moment I stopped being stiff from resistance workout #1 (the soreness did get worse the next day), I did workout #2. The human body amazes me with its resilience. I’m already stronger and can see some very early muscle definition. (When I say “early” I’m not joking, but still.)
How is everybody else doing? Have you made even the smallest of health changes you want to celebrate here?
