Did I mention Wimbledon? Anyone for tennis with Anna Kournikova?
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.
Christina Hendricks, perennial hottie, red headed woman. And she eats watermelons.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
Oh noes, empty suit found in the Oval office… oh wait, nevermind. #rapture

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?
