Points not worth pondering

  • I’ve learned my lesson. I should have included J. K. Rowling in the title of my post about reading another Galbraith novel. As it was, nobody knew who I was talking about.
  • It didn’t take long for me to get really tired of people saying the weather is “Chili Today, Hot Tamale.” Thank goodness most of them didn’t know it was a song and had lyrics, &c. Actually, we’re having chili tonight and it’s raining tomorrow.
  • Would most people have forgotten Carly Simon long before they did if she hadn’t written ‘You’re So Vain’? I never thought the song was about me. Always thought it was probably Lorne Greene. Or, maybe Dan Blocker.
  • The Big Mac has left Russia.
  • The Supreme Court should replace Roe V. Wade with a stronger decision that states abortion is not the business of any level of government. Okay, you can ponder this point.
  • According to CNN, the Senate has announced a bipartisan agreement on guns. Strong legislation seemed like a no-brainer to me, but then we are talking about Congress.
  • If your parents forced you to listen to or (worse yet) to sing along with anyone singing “Big Rock Candy Mountain,” there’s nothing any of us can do to help you.
  • It’s always a bad idea to ask for whom the bell tolls.
  • If “paper boy” isn’t the first job on your resume, you’re not management material. By the way, that’s not me in the picture.
  • If you still remember the “Hut-Sut” song, you’re really old and should check with the authorities at your nursing home to see if it’s okay for you to be reading this blog. Or singing, “Hut-Sut Rawlson on the rillerah and a brawla, brawla sooit.”
  • If you’re still reading this post, you might want to check yourself into an asylum or a home or whatever to make sure you’re still sane. If you’re insane, this blog is the place for you.
