A lazy Friday. La-Zy. Are you feelin' it?

It's like I don't even feel like climbing the water tower so I can swim around naked in the town's water supply. (And they complain about lead in the DC water system. Sheesh!)

But you showed up today and that should be rewarded with something. So, I'll pull a Mike. Here's a few entertaining bits:

Bumper sticker I spotted: I love my country but I think it's time we started seeing other people.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/travelnews/4344890/Virgin-the-worlds-best-passenger-complaint-letter.html - A funny letter complaining about a flight. If you read it, do follow the pics.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/worldnews/article-1136463/Theres-reason-poor-people-malaria-The-moment-Bill-Gates-released-jar-mosquitoes-packed-conference.html - Bill Gates scares people (even more than usual.)

PS It's just so many levels of wrong to make the dog wear the petticoat.

The dog (Higgins) went on to movie stardom and later played "Benji". He died in 1975.

From your DC references it sounds like you're inside the beltway, but any chance we can lure you to Sterling for our Bloggers for Good happy hour Feb. 19?

Would love to see you (and your readers!) there!

Great bumper sticker. Where can I get one?

lacochran's evil twin said...

Fiona: Glad you liked it. :)

f.B: I, too, thought Sir Richard might come through with something more.

Mike: Or in other altitudes.

Fiona: Thanks for clue-ing me in.

Herb of DC: OMG. You're not even kidding. He was a cutie.

Erin: Thanks for the invite. Sounds like a worthy/fun event.

Barbara: Dunno. But if I've seen it, there must be a zillion of 'em out there.

Reya Mellicker said...

I've seen that bumper sticker, too. Sweet.

Glad you took some time to be lazy. You never do that. I salute you!

why is it that only people like bill gates can get away with shit like this? If I tried to release a jar full of mosquitoes at my last session I would have gotten arrested!

Go Bill.

lacochran said...

Reya: I'd probably be more entertaining if I lazed more.

Briankainec.com: True dat.

Kate: It certainly got the point across. But it's not repeatable.
