20. August, 2007 - Hippo Birdies to Me

Well, another year older. Not necessarily any wiser.

Got the following joke via email, and it seems appropriate:

What’s the difference between girls/women aged: 8, 18, 28, 38, 48, 58, 68 and 78?
At 8 — You take her to bed and tell her a story.
At 18 — You tell her a story and take her to bed.
At 28 — You don’t need to tell her a story to take her to bed.
At 38 — She tells you a story and takes you to bed.
At 48 — She tells you a story to avoid going to bed.
At 58 — You stay in bed to avoid her story.
At 68 — If you take her to bed, that’ll be a story!
At 78 — What story??? What bed??? Who the hell are you???

Well, there it is, then.

The weekend? Pretty darned quiet. Made a trip to Target and got everything I needed for the weekend on Saturday afternoon, and decided it was rainy enough that I didn't want to go to the Saints game (which they played and I listened to on the visiting team’s webcast — the Saints lost again). Sunday I mostly stayed in, too. Was planning to watch the race on TV, but that was rained out, so I got a full helping of old movies and a big nap. Nothing especially notable, except that due to the nap, I was wide awake bright and early this morning (before it was bright, if you want to get technical). Which is probably just fine. Gotta get everything packed up again for the game tonight, though it looks like that might be rainy, too.

Yeah, it’s nice to get the rain and get some relief from all the dry weather and not need to fix my sprinklers (short version, the washer from the end of the hose was old and crumbly and seems to have clogged something up), but it’s been an awful lot of gray and misty or rainy weather lately, and it’s just a lot more fun to waste a nice weekend than to feel like you’re “stuck inside” because of the weather.

Oh well. At least the temperature’s down, which is nice. I’m used to spending my birthday with the temperature being up near body temp and this is a lot more pleasant.
