The L&TM5K Calls In Sick

I'm very sorry, but you'll have to take your online amusement elsewhere this weekend. Fortunately, I have a few suggestions:

  • From Bioephemera, we learn that scientists may soon be able to cure us of that most perniscious of conditions -- love!

  • Also by way of Bioephemera, we found to this post which contains scans from "The Recently Deflowered Girl" -- a brilliantly naughty 1965 parody of etiquite books illustrated by the great Edward Gorey.

  • And finally, remember The Seven Wonders of the Castle5000 Environs? At the end of that post, I asked "What are the seven wonders of YOUR neighborhood?" Well, last week frequent commenter Sandy posted her own wonders, and a fine assortment they are.

Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Weekend, y'all. See you at the Monday Quiz!

I am shocked --- shocked --- to have read the F-bomb you dropped in my comments.

I thought you were a Family Friendly Blogger. I demand a refund, in the name of the children. And the unborn children, too, what the hell.

@Chance: I humbly and sincerely apologize to you, your readers, your students -- and particularly to your trail mix.

Chance said...

No need for that last. The trail mix takes a much more ecumenical view of these things than I do.

How come you never drop the f-bomb on my blog?

Actually, one of my new year's resolutions is to stop saying "fuck" while at school, as I often do so when the door to the teacher's room is open and the horrid little monsters are right outside.
