bugs bunny - system shock

9075 - Friday! Leap Day!

Not much able to update - it's cold here at the bus stop... frozen hands, or punching the phone with robot-gloved fingers? Neither work very well, but thank goodness for spell check!

Theme to Quincy in my head this evening. (mp3 )


Random Scotto factoid - I remember my first rated R movie - Alien... but I'm not sure if I properly remember the first movie that I ever saw in the theater. Herbie Rides again (my first movie was a sequel?) Benji, Maybe? I'd have been 4 or 5.

[later edit - BHK got a cutie-pie bob! and asked me to marry her (though we already are) sadie hawkins style!]

Ten year old obit that never gets old -
With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almost went unnoticed last week.

Larry LaPrise, the man that wrote "The Hokey Pokey" died peacefully at the age of 83.

The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin.

They put his left leg in.

And then the trouble started.

Google docs changed the layout slightly - I like the new bar across the top.

Speaking of google docs - my ongoing author bingo card from the library... I'm off to a good start. When we hit 25

Not much in history, today, given the leap!
