Out and About

I saw this sticker on a car today.  I love it.
But then again, the car also had this sticker:
I also had to yell at some eejit today, who for no reason I can think of, decided to cut me off and then slow down in front of me.   He gave me the finger when I honked my horn and he yelled back.  Haha
Eejit.  It is fun to travel about town in a car.

The Fine Art of Insulting

Laura at The Thinking Housewife takes exception to the crude insult uttered by a police commissioner in public.  I agree.  We must raise the level of our insults.  Base profanity is so common it hardly registers.   It is time to stand out above the crowd!

So, as a public service, I present to all of us the following alternatives:

 “A most notable coward, an infinite and endless liar, an hourly promise breaker, the owner of no one good quality.”   All’s Well That Ends Well

 “Thy tongue outvenoms all the worms of Nile.”   Cymbeline

 “Thou clay-brained guts, thou knotty-pated fool, thou whoreson obscene greasy tallow-catch!”   Henry IV Part 1

Come one, Come all

If anybody in the DC, Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania area is looking for something to do this weekend, the Frederick Celtic Festival is being held on Saturday, 9 May, 9am-6pm.
Frederick Celtic Festival
It is a great event (of course it is, I am involved in running it!) and the weather is going to be beautiful.  I ordained it so.

There is also an evening concert - separate admission - for the benefit of Operation Second Chance.  100% of the concert tickets will be donated.

Beltane was a week ago.  There will be no naked dancing.

Sing Along Friday Night

Another disappointment, another day.  So just sing along with Glenn and the boys.

I'm sorry for myself
I'm sorry for myself
So sorry for myself
Someone I love said good-bye
And no one's sorry for me that's why
I'm so sorry for myself

I'm blue as I can be
My man walked out on me
I'd go home and end it all
But fourteen stories is an awful fall
I'm so sorry for myself

I'm feeling mighty sad
I never looked so bad
I have lost my appetite
Couldn't eat my second steak last night
I'm so sorry for myself

So very blue am I
I wish I could die
Wish I had a nasty cough
I'd buy a gun but then it might go off
I'm so sorry for myself

I soon could end my woes
Down where the river flows
I would jump right in the sea
But no one may be there to rescue me
I'm so sorry for myself
