Okay, by choosing to watch the college basketball tournaments all day instead, I blew the chance to celebrate the “cosmic coinkydink” of Albert Einstein’s birthday and Pi Day yesterday. My apologies. That was very “unscientific” of me. I will now attempt to make up for it with these really cool videos I tracked down after watching the Outrageous Acts of Science show…
Having been awakened at 5am by you know what (even after the treatment on Tuesday!), I’ll admit that I’m not exactly in a “festive” mood. But I am up, with time on my hands, and nothing better to do. So I thought I’d throw a little something together to celebrate the start of the New Year. Besides, I’m still a sentimental fool at heart, who just can’t seem to stop believing in a better tomorrow.
Well folks, today is my birthday, and, in honor of my fifty-nine year long failure to assimilate, I’ve decided to celebrate the start of my sixtieth year with the gang from Star Trek: TNG! 😉
I don’t know. Maybe it’s just me. After all, my skills at interpreting the motivations of my fellow man aren’t exactly world renowned. Hell, for all I know, they may find a celebration of fear to be somehow “cathartic”… 🙄
Good grief. I really need to stop falling asleep with the news playing on my TV. With continuing coverage of the potential invasion of the Ukraine by Russia, the ongoing search and recovery efforts after the horrible mudslide in Washington state, and, of course, the never-ending quest to find out what happened to Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, it’s no wonder I woke up in such a grumpy mood! 😡
I got a little reminder last night, from the nice people at WordPress, that yesterday marked the 5th anniversary of the date that I ported my little collection of lunatic rants over from where it began on Blogger. As I was in the middle of an attempt to reduce the massive backlog of programs stored on my DVR – while adding 8 1/2 more hours to it at the same time 😳 – I had a lot of time to reflect back on that five years of blogging.
When I was finally exhausted from all the TV watching, while trying to think of something profound to say to mark the occasion at the same time, it occurred to me that it wasn’t really necessary…
I just couldn’t resist these. I hope everyone finds something they like…
Happy New Year Everyone! 😀
Another good one, gone way too soon… Rest in peace James.
Several items today, from two different sources – all poking a little fun at the “better half” of our species. No offense ladies. You know I love you! First up are three images from one of my favorite blogs – the very prolific Don in Massachusetts. Each image is linked to it’s respective post: And last, but definitely not least, is this incredibly funny video from the always awesome Cool Berman:
I may have missed out on all the Christmas fun, but I’ll be damned if I don’t do something for New Year’s Day! Happy New Year everybody! 😀 I want ice water. More from the Visual Treats volume
