Lazy Sunday

No Formula One racing this weekend, although pretty much could be said for last weeks snoozefest in Spain.

It’s a hot long weekend, and that means barbecue. And beer.  Happy holiday weekend.

Some Tweets

I was a lazy tweeter last week, but will be back in full swing once the long weekend is over.  Follow me, you know you want to.

A Hottie

Tomorrow is Independence Day in the US of A, so let’s enjoy an all-American hottie.  Reese Witherspoon. Awkward name, but she makes it work, somehow.

A Song

Something a little different this week. Apparently even execrable TV talent shows  occasionally stumble into someone remarkable.  Like this kid:

..

Blimey. Onya mate, or something.

Lazy Sunday

The F1 circus is in Valencia, Wimbledon is in the middle weekend, the hottie is hot and the tune is made of mellow.

Enjoy your weekend.

A Song

This is from the 80’s and I found it while looking for something about Burt Lancaster.  Don’t ask.  The good news is that I survived the eighties without ever wearing a dodgy hat or headband.  Stick around for the possibly inebriated Aussie TV host at the end.

Lazy Sunday

It’s a hot Sunday, and so lazy that this post is late.

Here’s your Tweets and stuff, I’m off to rummage through my CD’s and listen to some sweet, sad sax music.

Some Tweets

Follow me on Twitter to get the juice as it happens, another 100 or so and I’ll have 1000 followers. Which is a little creepy if you stop and think about it.

A Song

Sad Sunday, because the Big Man left the band and the rest of us yesterday.  I saw Clarence Clemons and that fella he plays with live five times, on two continents.  The E-Street Band will never be the same, but today we’ll remember just how good they were. If you’re impatient, 4.18 or so is where the goosebumps begin.

..

Thanks, big man, may you rest easy.

Lazy Sunday

Formula 1 is in Montreal, a few hours up the road.  It’s the only race of the year in the EST time zone, which means I don’t have to be up at daft o’clock to indulge my petrolhead addiction.

Here’s a lazy Sunday post, enjoy your weekend.

Some Tweets

I was a lazy tweeter last week, next week promises to be filled with more virtual birdsong however.

Lazy Sunday

It’s a hot, lazy Sunday at Chez Bayonet. Which means Gaia will have to cope with the AC running because I like to return to a cool house after a few hours of working in the heat.  Sorry, planet, deal with it.

However the climate weather is with you, enjoy your Sunday.  Unless you’re in Australia or Hobbiton, in which case I hope your Sunday went well.

A Hottie

She’s a moonbat, but she’s from Michigan.  Grand Rapids, Michigan.  Which is where the song is from, and I like some Sunday symmetry.  Star of the 10:10 kids kaboom video, here’s a gawk at Gillian Anderson.

*click*

A Song

Here’s something a little different, a LipDub.  These can be hit and miss, but take your hat off to Grand Rapids, MI for going all out with 5000 people and a closed downtown to get this done.  There’s explosions and a helicopter, but Michael Bay gets no credit, oddly.

..

Enjoy.

Lazy Sunday

It’s Monaco GP weekend, lots of pretty boats and pretty people packed into a pokey principality to pose and ponder the race.

Lazy Sunday

Are we still here?

Oh good, the rapture prediction turned out to be as reliable as global warming science, but without all the silly scaremongering.  I kid, I kid.

Rapturegate starts today.  It’ll be revealed that poor, deluded Harold Camping had doubts about the date of the rapture but a shadowy figure on the Internet told him to ‘hide the decline’ and use a Nature trick and it’d all be fine.  There could be some epic comedy if Camping ever figures out who the mysterious helper behind the ‘CRUJones’ handle is.

The good news is the Spanish Grand Prix isn’t canceled due to the end of the world and the weather is supposed to be nice here.

So, enjoy a lazy Sunday.

Lazy Sunday

The weather at Bayonet Towers is nice for a change, so it’s time to tackle the unholy mess that a vengeful Gaia has wrought upon the garden.  Power tools, wicked sharp things and beer.  What could possibly go wrong?
