Good Morning: This is your open thread

This is me. Man, last week kicked my ass and this week I am starting to feel much better. I’ve just got to clean and get my life together. How are you?

Theme of the Week: Personality Tests and other ways we categorize ourselves Theme of the Week: Personality Tests and other ways we categorize ourselves

So I was reading this article about how the Myers Briggs was basically kinda bullshit or at the very least, it’s not really well researched enough to actually correlate to any real personality outcomes in a statistically significant way. But there is always an allure to these personality measurements and I was…

For whom the bell tolls For whom the bell tolls

Do you ever get a show, that you really loved as a kid but the idea of revisiting it is scary? You know in your bones it won’t be the same. That’s how I feel about an LWT sitcom, Please Sir! I’m not sure I could watch again.

Back to School

Ready to go back to school? Let’s talk about it this week. It used to be that in the US, people went to school after labor day (edited to say) though who knows when people go back to school now. I mean, I didn’t because I grew up in a hick town where we went in at the beginning of August and were out during harvest…

Beware the ides of Mawrth Beware the ides of Mawrth

This Dydd Mawrth drags on. Tuesday morning I had a toad (or a frog) under the recycling bin. No idea where it came from. It was tiny and dark grey, almost matching the pavement and had hopped on to other pastures when I checked back later. Meanwhile, a couple of counties over, a Rhyl lady had a more colourful visitor.…

Theme of the Week: Tuesdays Theme of the Week: Tuesdays

Tuesday seems to be the official backtalk day of the week and by official day of the week, I mean the one that people complain about the most. Now as an eternal optimist, I want to look at the glass half full and ask you, “What is your favorite Tuesday?” I put my choice here. Now it is up to you.

Who is your favourite Martian? Who is your favourite Martian?

There seem to be a lot of Martians about lately. And it’s their week so to speak. A new version of War of the Worlds is looming, some conspiracy radio guy was talking about them last night, and I’ve been getting grumpy about missing Red Moons and nostalgic about the one that came through.

Theme of the Week: Mondays Theme of the Week: Mondays

Hi! I’ve been lackadaisical lately and been trying to be motivated and finally wrote this post. I think we need to go with the general consensus. This week will be a week of Mondays. Or a week complaining about Mondays. My family leaves tomorrow and now I really have to face a music. This summer will be nothing but…

Theme of the Week: Camping Theme of the Week: Camping

Back when I was a kid, around five or six, my favorite toy was a puppet of a cow that I decided was an alien bear named Growly. Growly was an alien and I knew it because he pee’d orange. (He was extensively documented through pictures and tapes so I have a shocking amount of story development that I don’t need to go…

 

Theme of the Week: Summer Songs Theme of the Week: Summer Songs

Every year people talk about the song of the summer. I suppose this year it’s something by Drake. It’s everywhere. So nice to see a Canadian young man be so popular.
