the more they stay the same.
I actually have no idea what that means.
I’ve always just assumed it was someone being impossibly clever, and everyone else just went along with it rather than appear dumb. That’s my plan, anyway. I figured the rest of you were in on it, too. You were…right?
We’re all just pretending we understand that. Right?
Total emperor’s new clothes pact: He’s nude, he’s acting like he’s not nude, and he looks AWESOME. Just smile and nod. That’s right. Show some teeth and go with the flow…
So anyway, without actually getting the deep meaning behind that saying, let me just summarize and say NOTHING IS GOING ON.
It’s sunny, and it remains sunny.
This makes me happy.
It’s hot and it remains hot.
This takes my sunny happiness and ratchets it up to overjoyed. If I lived where it was warm and sunny all the time (Haiti? Ethiopia?) I’d be the most cheerful person on earth. Most likely.
If not, it would at least minimize any sadness about whatever else situation I had to manage (malaria, starvation, severe hurricane damage to my hut, etc.)
Today was Memorial Day which is in memory of something that either has to do with the military or war or both. I did not opt to bust out the stars and stripes bathing suit. Maybe for the Fourth of July.
I may however – for the right ‘buy me a beer’ contribution – post a photo of said bikini circa last summer could be published.
Meanwhile, in honor of Memorial Day, the SciFi channel is running a ‘Land of the Lost’ marathon which allows me to
a) prove my point that it was not two grown men and a girl, but rather a father and his two (old teen and tween) children, a.k.a. Marshall, Will, and Holly. And,of course, the adolescent missing link critter, Chaka.
b) reignite my irritation that they keep remaking all my childhood favorites and turning them into schmalzy crap. I didn’t see Escape to Witch Mountain, but the goofed out laugh track-esque ads with ‘The Rock’ (Dwayne whoeverthehellheis) really pissed me off. And now ‘Land of the Lost’ with Will Ferrell and two other adults. Sight unseen, I’m not impressed.
Otherwise, I got nothing.
Write, eat, write, cook, write, workout, write, sleep, write, internet…repeat.
And with that, here’s hoping I can be more interesting tomorrow.
