I've got a busy Lenten Wednesday in front of me, so two brief items for your perusal today:
- I was stopped at a stoplight on my way home from work yesterday afternoon, and the car in front of me had a bumper sticker that was funny enough for me to grab a pen and a piece of scratch paper (actually an unused ATM envelope) and write it down. It's a quotation attributed to General Norman Schwartzkopf: "Going to war without France is like going deer hunting without your accordion." Editor's note: this quotation in no way reflects the blog author's view of the war in Iraq, or of the nation of France, or of french fries, french toast, french salad dressing, French's mustard, Les Miserables, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, the Notre Dame football team (ever noticed they have a French name but are called the "Fighting Irish?" What's up with that?), shooting deer, or music involving accordions. It was just funny in and of itself, and any thoughts the reader may form concerning the author's opinion on any of the above subjects based on the quotation alone are at the reader's risk and are most likely bound to be wrong anyway. So there.
A few posts ago, I promised a picture of my "Moxie shelf" at work. It currently holds 9 cans...I'm debating as to whether I should start a new shelf when can #10 comes along, or if I should just start another row on the same shelf. I'm a book connisseur, so bookshelf space is at a premium in my office. (If only that were the biggest conflict in my life...)
