The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Things I learned today (14)

Not including the fact that a really strong wind can blow a leaf right in front of the safety gizmo that keeps your garage door from closing if it thinks there's potential for crushing.

Welcome to Sunday.

~sigh~ I'm below average.

But look how much money you saved!

Sorry you didn't win an award, man. Next year, when I've been aboard this Okie Blogger thingie for a year, I'll add my votes, definintely, and show up, maybe.

Meanwhile, in addition to your Tempations song lyric, I would suggest to add this one, by "Ten Years After", from Where Is Sanity: 'Tax the rich, feed the poor, till there are no, rich no more, tell me where is sanity?'

My congratulations on your being nominated, deservedly!

Chaz, you can't measure these things in terms of money.

I remember that Ten Years After bit. It showed up on the "I'd Love to Change the World" single, which I suspect made Alvin Lee, um, rich.

And hey, I was due to lose the darn awards; I got one in '05 and one in '06, so it's not like I'm exactly wandering in the desert here. I've already had the weird experience of people coming up to me in the supermarket and asking "Aren't you....?" Well, yes, I are. And so what? When I get to the point that I start believing the hype, I've outlived my usefulness.
