The Sophisticated Mr. Lampshade

Off the bat, I’d like to get something out of the way: I’ve been suspecting for quite sometime that I could eat a twenty-minute brownie in ten minutes. No really. I haven’t put it to the test yet, but I really think I could do it.  I’m just saying.

Oh, and also, I feel as a service to the public I should make it clear that I had my poetic license revoked some years ago, as evidenced by this recent weak weak offering of mine.

And I heard somewhere that pages with the words “This page left blank.” on them are not really blank.  Rumor, yes, but somehow believable.


At this point, I’m sure you can see how transparent I am, how I am simply trying to distract you from a disturbing fact: I don’t have anything substantive to put up today.  No.  It’s just not going to happen.

And, in breaking news, I’ve made the decision to start doing Friday Link Love every two weeks instead of once a week.  Beefier posts that way.  Fewer jokes needed.

Plus Furnace Girl and I are still knee deep–quite literally–with packing for our transfer to Sicily–getting passports and visas and figuring out how to ship two pets overseas and what-not.  So, much as I love you (and much as you love me–I know that goes without saying but there, I said it!), I don’t have the time to give you a quality product.

So instead, I give you this (Really. For your own good, you must watch it all the way to the end WARNING: Contains a little profanity, but all for a good cause).

Have a great weekend!

P.S.  Any interest at all in my putting up a post sharing some of my template building experiences?  There are a ton of resources on the web, but I am happy to throw down some lessons learned if there’s an appetite for it.  ‘Cuz that’s how I roll!

Stay groovy and thanks for stopping by.
