Things

Thursday, February 03, 2011

Getting to the "Bottom" of things. The sitcom "Bottom" ran for three series between 1991 and 1995, and spawned a film and several live tours.
Jeremy Strong's children's books include titles such as "My Brother's Famous Bottom", "My Brother's Famous Bottom Goes Camping", and others in a similar vein.

Nick Bottom is the conceited and foolish weaver who ends up wearing the head of an ass in "A Midsummer Night's Dream".

    Sounds appropriately existential on a grey Winter's day?

Birds

Saturday, January 29, 2011

Yea I don't think "The Magpie" has the same ring of darkness really. "Name this bird that shares its name with a very famous poem by Edgar Allan Poe. They are sometimes called wolf-birds.

robin
crow
raven
magpie

Answer: Raven" Ravens are meat eaters and often swarm near death to eat human remains vulture style. In London, they often ate people killed by the government in political executions. That is why it is "good luck" in England for many government offices to have ravens. In modern day they just feed them meat from the grocery market, in front of paying tour groups. Last time I was in London I heard that on a tour.

School

I am back at night school this week. Juggling school and family, while keeping up a workout schedule has been VERY hard to do. Somehow, this week I did okay.

Hospital

Sunday, January 23, 2011

I was going to hit the gym extra this week, but Alexandria had to go to the doctor this week. I was stuck sitting in the hospital room for hours. So much for health kicks. She gets in a fight with some kids at school. They stuff her with meds like a Christmas goose, and fish bowl her in with crack head gang kids at some therapy place (she is NOT one of these), and act like I am a jerk for trying to take her home. The world has strange ideas with modern kids, and what to do with them. Type casting her as a head case will not help her later in life when she is trying to get scholarships to colleges and universities.

    There is a lot that's whacked there, and I don't mean Alexandria! Good thing you can provide some needed balance!

    Yeah, it's odd how doctors or "experts" see us or kids only how they want to see us. Sorry you and Alexandria had to go through all of that. I hope things get better soon. Keep the chin up and put up the good fight.
