SKIPNOTE: Less than a month, troops.
The LA Marathon is on March 19, and
I'm doing it to raise money for the
Kitten Rescue charity. It's a worthy cause.

ABSOLUTELY NO PRESSURE, but if you feel
some shred of humanity left within you
calling out to your inner being to actually
DONATE something, you can do so here. Thanks!

(and Triple-thanks-with-marshmallows to those of you who already have!)


                    It’s a little-known fact that Pythagoras
                    had a brother named Viagoras. He, too,
                    had a keen interest in right angles.

TWEET OF THE WEEK

From the official Twitter account
of Norway's biggest airport:



Generic Joke

Four men walk into a <social establishment>. Inside the <social establishment>, they have a conversation about <topic>. Eventually one of them leaves the group and goes to the bathroom. After he left, the conversation shifts from <topic> to the well-being of their sons.

The first one says, "my son is very successful. He is a <reputable career #1>. This <holiday> he gave his best friend <indicator of wealth #1>."

"My son is also very successful" the second man adds to the conversation, "he works as a <reputable career #2>. This <holiday> he gave his best friend <indicator of wealth #2>."

The third man interjects, "that's nice. My son is very successful too. He is a <reputable career #3>. He just gave his best friend <indicator of wealth #3> during <holiday>."

At that moment, the fourth guy returns to the group. "What are you guys talking about?" he asks.

"We are bragging about how great our sons are," one of them says, "how successful is your son?"

"Oh he's an unemployed homosexual," the fourth guy responded.

"Oh that's unfortunate."


"Not really," the guy says, "he has three boyfriends and during <holiday> they gave him <indicator of wealth #1>, <indicator of wealth #2>, and <indicator of wealth #3>."

Tunesmith Tuesday - "What a Wonderful World" by Louis Armstrong



I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

I see skies of blue and clouds of white
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people going by
I see friends shaking hands saying how do you do
But they're really saying I love you.

I hear baby's cry, and I watched them grow
They'll learn much more than I'll ever know
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

Yes, I think to myself what a wonderful world.
Oh, yeah
