Lost Etymology

On my twitter account, today's quote of the day reads as follows:
"Truth can be decieving" --John Loeffler
Meaning, "this doesn't necessarily imply what you think it does." Except that that can't possibly be the source.

I Hate Long Weekends!

Image: Frank the mouse cries out in frustration, his hands atop his head as if to pull his nonexisting long hair; his arms bending his whiskers.

Most people love long weekends; I don't. Long weekends for me are an opportunity; an opportunity I can never use.

It's always the same. I see the long weekend coming up on the calendar, and I start thinking of what I could do with that extra day (or days). Usually I settle on one thing; something that I know I can do in much less than a day, and then start doing it from Friday afteroon.

Except that it never gets done.

God Bless America


I'm pretty sure I can't be much more explicit than this. Happy Fourth of July, everyone!

Frank, the mouse, stands solemnly at attention in early twentieth century clothes, singing into an old-style microphone. Frank turns to his left to raise a point, his arm passing behind the microphone, and his tail being dragged on the ground. Frank collapses in laughter, grabbing the microphone for support.
