Friday Bullets For Tra-la It’s May!

I was not so much in a production of Camelot as I was part of the production. OK, I raised curtains. I sat in a closet for a week’s worth of evenings when I was 14 and raised curtains. But I heard the “tra-la, it’s may song” more than most humans have and I really don’t mind it that much. I bet Iggy is saying tra-la this weekend. It is sort of like listening to Robert Goulet, so manly and mapled. By the way, when preparing for a conference I spoke at this week, I was quite pleased to learn that, no, I did not have a head shot for the materials. Why do people lean at a 17% angle for promotional head shots?

  • I am not sure whether buying a bit of Chrysler is a good idea for us all. I mean, I have not been in one since the old Dodge Diplomat died around 1993 – no, not true – I drive an inherited van here in 2003 before trading that in at Ford.
  • How to deal with invasive species – eat them. Shows them who’s top of the food chain.
  • I had no idea that the Edwards Opera House was so close. Now that I have a passport I may nip over for a bluegrass Saturday night sometime. Which reminds me – we are weeks away from the Watertown Wizards.
  • Stephen Fry on something other than Twitter – thinking about himself at 16.
  • Ted Reynolds, CBC 70s and 80s sports reporter and part of my youth passes away.
  • Why isn’t PEI just a column in the paper every day like “your daily smile” except it would be “look what happened in PEI today!” and it would have a story like this one about the Environment Minister telling everyone how great it was when he was a kid and dynamited beaver dams. And they sell citizenships for profit, too!
  • The season finale of Private Practice last night was the worst hour of TV ever but it was like watching a shopping mall burn – can’t stop staring as careers are destroyed.

That is it. Vintage base ball tomorrow. A three team event, too. We even have hats this year. And I will be sporting a hurlihee and a part well to the side. Huzzah.

    Remember to feather the sideburns.

    Meanwhile I am consumed with Iggy mania…or it maybe hay fever.

    Surely Private Practice was not worse than the average Grey’s Anatomy episode. I realise it’s a sliding scale, but still – Hindenburg-style disasters are inherent to both shows.

    Indeed. Without the feathering, they are merely awesomely massive friendly chops. Here here. Harumph? Pish posh. Sorry, the Hulihee is known to cause 1800’s dialect overload.

    I have a smallish feathering started. Maybe it’s a hurliette.
