Bacon Eiffel Tower!

Yes! YESSS!!! I have made it through another week without blogging politics!!!

Oh, god <sobs into her hands>.

We’ll get through this. We’ll get through it together.

More people playing with their food here. Looks like a decent righty blog, if you fancy poking around. And you think you can read financial prognostication right now without popping a blood vessel.

Try to have a good weekend, everyone!

Proud o’ ya, SWeas!
I’m still trying, but, unfortunately, what has been seen cannot be unseen…

Back to the Matchmaker of Périgord on the Nook, to erase the memory of the election and the presence of the news.

I love to play with my food, I made this a couple of years ago!

Thanks for this — and all your non-yanno posts. You’re the high point of my Reading Trail.

Yup, Slim Jim goal posts, Twinkie stands with bacon spectators. Pepper jack and cheddar football players!

Bacon Spectators.

Those two words were made for each other.

Bacon Spectators.

Now I want to start a mime group who travel to truck stop diners and perform.

Earl Scruggs would have been 79 today, if he hadn’t unfortunately had a mortality event last year. Among the missing.

Our monitoring stations on US territories and on Hawaii are recording elevated radiation rates which are reason for serious concern.
Stay out of the rain, and check your rad network monitors for more information.

Now, why is this one of your high holy days, Can’t hark?

Not a high holy day–but a year in which I seem to be noticing deaths and anniversaries more than usual.

It was a bad year for them, especially in music. But I’m a congregant in the Church of Earl, and I didn’t know it was his birthday :)

Hm. Well, it was a FaceBook post from the Southern Folklife Collection, and Wikipedia seems to agree. I wouldn’t have thought of it on my own, but when the post showed up on my wall …

It popped up eventually on the banjo forum, so…there you go.

Not that I was doubting your word, Can’t hark. I’ve just gone through so much of my adult life being the only person who even knows who Earl was. I usually had to say, “you know, the Beverly Hillbillies guy.” Which is not at all satisfactory.

Hunh. I always think of him as half of “Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs”; they were on some record my parents had–I think possibly a four-album set from a folk festival. Funny I’m totally blanking on the name of the festival, because I must have listened to those records a million times.

Oh. Duh! The Newport festival.

What do they say about a city of 1.2 million people in Iran, told to evacuate?

Completely off topic, but I thought you all might appreciate this article. Some guy gets overly obnoxious on an airplane, so the other passengers duct-taped him to his seat!

Well, I’m home from Norway, everyone! I had a great time, white Christmas, avoided eating lutefisk, kid got engaged, spent the night in the Newark airport with all the homeless people trying to keep warm, just your normal Christmas vacation.

Whattya mean you don’t care?

(I’ve been able to mostly avoid politics, but I do have to go to work tomorrow, which is full of woefullness. Except they pay me, so I guess it really isn’t.)

I am pleased anytime a person successfully avoids lutefisk. Fish flavor is not a good Jello flavor. ICK!

From my spam bucket:

I believe there’s one mistake with that article. In the fight scene, Palpatine continues to be holding Anakin’s saber for your time. If anyone includes a rip, just freeze frame it at any point throughout their duel where it shows Palpatine with his saber, and you can see that it’s Anakin’s handle.

Thank you, Star Wars bot!

I watched an excellent documentary series called Blood of the Vikings

Stoaty, have you had Uncle Badger tested?


Comment from S. Weasel
Time: January 7, 2013, 8:41 pm

It surprises me, Redd, the linked article says the Viking blood is found just in the far North and islands. I had understood they lived here and interbred a lot longer and farther South than that.

…and interbred a lot longer and farther South than that.

Yes, everyone knows Anglo-Saxon girls are easy…

I believe the doc said there may be other genetic identifiers that they have yet to isolate and be able to test for. I’ll have to double check. But it was 5 hours of history, archaeology, art, weapons, etc., and it was done very well. It did make me feel like whacking someone with a sword.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
