I’m having one of those weeks where I’m working hard and getting things done, but every time I cross something off the to-do list, three more things jump onto it. Someday, I’ll get around to writing a few not-time-sensitive posts that I can pull out of the hat on days like today.
But today is not that day.
So, have a few memes and jokes. Shamelessly yoinked from the depths of the internet, for your amusement.
This one is more true than funny, I think:
Some things aren’t species-specific; they’re baby-specific. Playing with your food, napping at the dinner table, ending up contorted into a weird position in a weird place while the adults look on in disbelief- all universal experiences of babyhood:
*hugs* thank you. extra lulz at the first and last one. A sibling of mine got that fridge’s brother for free from a former boss. Thing has got to be older than either of us, and I am pretty sure the sibling’s favorite beverages would ride out a successful nuclear strike by a foreign power.
My great aunt had a fridge from the 1950s – compressor on top, had to be defrosted on occasion. The thing was still going strong when I last saw it in 1994.
On the refrigerator one, I have a hypothesis: the ability of an appliance to keep running is inversely proportional to how attractive it is and how well it fits in with the rest of your kitchen decor. If we take a modern fridge and paint it avocado green, it too may outlive the house that it’s installed in.
On the writer’s block one: Rather than turning the writer off and on, try turning the internet off and the word processor on.
(Okay, that one is hypocritical, because I’m currently on the internet busy not writing, but in my defense, we had a hail storm go through just before 11 last night, and it was about 1 or 2 in the morning before I got back to sleep!)
An exceptionally good selection.
Definitely appreciated the kitty one!
Had the avocado green version of that fridge in the garage. It was still working when I sold it with the house in 2015.
