A little year's end naval gazing and more silliness.

 The sharp eyed of you out there will notice that I missed yesterday's post.  So here I am.  Apparently there are more "Science Experiments" in the refrigerator that need to be purged.  I basically slept the day away and when I did wake up I lay on the couch listening to music and watching bad sitcoms.

It's a good day to do that, look around and clear out things.

Since it is the last day of the year and I'm up early enough to hear reports from Kiribati's first of the year New Year's celebrations, and Auckland NZ and Sydney Harbour are both getting ready to fire them off, I'll celebrate in my own way with a little half caff and my feet up on the coffee table.

It's about all the energy I have after last week. 

For those of you who enjoy my little blog, and it will probably never light the world on fire, I thank you for listening to me on my soap box and welcome you back for more. 

As always, Bill.

First, a little food of questionable origins:

So Julius Caesar has a fencing instructor to teach him swordplay techniques

But what Caesar doesn’t know is that his fencing instructor comes from a tribe of cannibals in a far off land.

Eventually, y’know, Caesar’s assassinated and who should happen by his lifeless bloodied body but his old fencing instructor, who gives in to his culinary impulses and starts carving the dead dictator up and popping the pieces in a roasting pan. 

Someone comes across this scene and reacts appropriately: with horrified questions.

And the fencing instructor says in reply: “Hey hey hey, relax. I come not to parry Caesar, but to braise him.”

Since some of you love your cats, here you go.  I can't get near them, way too allergic, but I can understand that everyone, two legged and four, needs a friend.

On the first day of creation, God created the cat

On the second day of creation, He created the human to selflessly serve the cat

On the third day, He created the tuna, the mice, and the inferior animals of the Earth to serve as potential food for the cat

On the fourth day, He created honest toil so that man could labour long an hard to fulfill the need of the cat

On the fifth day, He created the ball of yarn, the feather-on-a-stick thingie, and catnip so the cat may or may not be entertained

On the sixth day, He created veterinary science to keep the cat healthy and the man broke

And on the seventh day, He tried to sleep but the cat woke Him up at 5 am
