Fun Friday Potpourri
First, oh how I wish I could get my 7-year-old to agree to throw a birthday party with proper princess accessories like these:
(H/T Phil Thompson)
Next, snowmen like these would make winter less tedious:
That’s a commendable effort by Vicki the Biker but it doesn’t top the Calvin & Hobbes snowmen:
I could go on, but it’s entirely possible your sense of humor isn’t as warped as mine, so click here if you’d like to see more strips like these (here’s a site that shows real life Calvin & Hobbes snowmen). I tried to get my kids to make Calvin & Hobbes snowmen during the snowstorm on Monday but they refused. Alas. If I want snowmen like that or princesses that carry saw blade guns, I guess I’ll have to borrow some other children.
That Vicki the Biker snowman reminds me of this “My Guitar Gently Weeps” video where, beginning at the 3:30 mark, Prince plays a guitar solo that is at least as good if not better than Eric Clapton’s version. Prince plays it with more panache.
A Facebook friend was looking for non-dictionary definitions of the word “family” so I posted Erma Bombeck’s definition (it’s always nice to have an excuse to bring on Erma):
The family. We are a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another’s desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together.
Finally, here’s Six Word Story #26:
Marriage. Boredom. Relocation. Overspent. Adultery. Suicide.
There. Madame Bovary in six words.
Hope you have a great weekend.
