We’re beginning the last year of a decade now, not starting a new one.
While we’re at it, I might as well revisit an oldie… the third millennium began on January 1st, 2001.
Blessed Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God, the Octave of Christmas, and Happy New Year!
It’s been a rough time going for me these past few weeks financially, but I’m still in good spirits thanks only to God. In the meantime it is Friday and I’m in the mood to dance!
Hattip to Smitty at The Other McCain. A minor vice of mine is a love for old pulp science fiction and fantasy. One of the authors I treasure is H.P. Lovecraft, best known for his cycle of horror science fiction\fantasy stories centering around the Old Ones, evil supernatural entities that lurk in dark dimensions, waiting to unleash unspeakable horror on unsuspecting humanity. The best known of these demonic creatures is Cthulhu. I have always found these stories gut-bustingly funny due to the fact that Lovecraft, in these stories, has to be the worst writer of fiction, at least fiction that does not contain phrases like “Love’s Savage Unending Fury”, “The Davinci Code”, “Based On A True Story”, and ”Stephen King”, since Bulwer-Lytton shuffled off to the world beyond. Some things are so spectactularly bad that I find myself liking them due to how hair-raisingly inept they are.
Hattip to Father Z at What the Prayer Really Says. The Civil War and fried chicken, brought to us by an American turned Australian, what could be more American than that!
I have this particular video clip of toddling quadruplets laughing their diapers off saved on my YouTube list for quite a long time now. You may have seen this awhile back on America’s Funniest Videos. These four quadruplets never fail to put a smile on my face. So enjoy and get your Saturday off to a great start.
Happy St. Valentine’s Day!
Updated with working video.

To all our readers who may have this dilemma: How can I convince my kids that I am the biggest geek in the world? Problem solved!
