Let me briefly describe my dream last night.

I'm sorry but I was starting to get creeped out with the pics describing my dream.
Suffice to say that THIS isn't half as bad as what actually occurred:

Wow. Simply wow.

Let's take a quick gander at one of the all time best movies ever.....

The Great Escape. Yeah, that's right.
But why, you may ask, are you showing me this irrelavant clip?
Well, duh.

Today's Iconic birthday:
Sir Richard Attenborough!

Oh sure, you may know him better from Jurassic Park or the remake of Miracle on 34th Street...WELL JUST ERASE THAT JUNK FROM YOUR MIND!

And always think of him in The Great Escape.

Did I seriously just expend that much energy into Sir Richard?
Good thing I'm going on a vacation for the long weekend.

All of us here at Elvis Loves Donuts, Inc. (That's right. We're a corporation.) thank you all for your donations and support.

Someones been stealing from company funds.

Oh, and Miss R? If you read this, you really need to call me.

The whole reason for our existence....

No...not smoking monkeys.
Although that's a pretty good guess.

It's to celebrate the birthday of.....
none other than.....


What? You expected something more earth-shattering?
I have needs you know.

And sometimes the only thing I can do is to celebrate all things Twain.

OK. Granted, he IS a Twain but I wouldn't really celebrate him unless he had a bit of a makeover.

Um....maybe something not quite so disturbing.
I was thinking more along the lines of a simple eyebrow trim.

ANYWAY....back to the reason why we're here.....

MUCH better.

Say goodbye, Shania.

I have little time so let's get right to the point.

Here is a synopsis of the day:

(of course)

(don't ask)

(with cheese, of course)

(shoe love)

(yes, carbs)


(are bison prehistoric?)

(sugar cane!)

(Liam and his scarf/towel)

(in August? Oh yeah....Seattle)


There you have it folks!
A picturesque recap of the day!*

*I just realized this represents Tuesday. Oh well. What're you gonna do about it, tough guy?

Today is not Monday*. Unless you're living on the east side of the equator south of the Urals. Then it's probably Wednesday around noon.

Top sinus cornea altercations provided by your neighborhood oddware store:

5. So does most of the other marsupials.

4. 16 if you count all but the middle one.

3. Yes.

2. Ordinary dividends can really add up your mileage.

1. Spacious living.

Oh how I wish the third column were totally random.

Speaking of fortitude, this just happened in our news:

Another item just passed the railroad on its way to Gordon.

Top reasons to not reverberate:

3. Sure. But only if I can add the cement.


Now this deserves your full oaf:

Ah, I think that's her cue to speak tonally.

Just as I suspenders.
Nor does the rest of the Vikings when it comes to those bragging premonitions.

*non-sensible non-Monday.

Top 5 excuses for being late for work:

5. Just tell your boss to shut up in Klingon:
"bIjatlh 'e' yImev"

4. I spent all morning looking for my kids before I realized I didn't have any kids.

3. I had to pick up my contact lenses from the dry cleaner.

2. Do you know how long it takes to make a light-iced, double-shot, non-fat, soy milk, 8-pump, sugar-free vanilla, extra caramel, caramel macchiatto?

And the number 1 excuse for being late for work:
1. Just keep repeating: "I'm sorry, what?"

Now you should be armed with the proper tools to make it through the week.

If none of the above excuses work, perhaps today's Iconic birthday will ease your pain.
There were several to choose from but when I came across this name, I knew we had to celebrate all things.....


Wow. Claudia Schiffer and Coolio, too! That's what I call a double bill!

And on a personal note, I'm glad the whole Bigfoot thing was a hoax.
Now the real Mr. Sasquatch can go back to work serving delicious chocolate and vanilla Frostys.*

And wearing dresses, evidently.

Yeah that's right.

But first.....


Today's Iconic birthday!

I'm sorry. I have no idea what's going on.

Seems that this blog has taken a back seat to "other things".




Then celebrate the birthday of KEITH MOON!

True story: Keith was such a maniac drummer that he had to tape headphones on his head while playing so they would stay on.

True story part II: A certain drumming blogger tried to emulate Mr. Moon when he was 13 years old.

True story III: A certain blogger has been out on the town too much lately and neglecting a certain blog.

Today we have a guest blogger. Please welcome Tricia.

Greenwood Photo Walkabout!!
Today I went to visit a friend I haven't seen in over a year. She works in Greenpoint, a place I have never been even though it's not too far. The G bus is the most notorious of all the buses, having a reputation for being perpetually slow/late/crappy. And so, I left two hours before my meeting time. When I went to Christi's workplace to give her the apartment keys she told me to take the E to the G because apparently, Cynthea once had a magical time warping experience on it. Okay fine. I'll try it. Lo and behold, wormhole happened. I was at my destination in 30 minutes. Who ever would have guessed. I spent a long time in a Starbucks, sitting at the bar pouring over a letter to my Kansas friend which said precisely what I wrote here. My Greenwood friend was behind schedule, so I took the time to do a "Photo Walkabout!!". This is where I take my digital camera and let it swing by my side, taking photos as I walk without really looking at the screen or caring about what happens. Usually there are lots of self-photos because I go for blocks without feeling inspired. There are also lots of blurry photos because having the flash on does nothing for secret photography. The only rule is I cannot stop walking to take a photo, but it is one that I bend liberally.

Where did all those one-day gigs go? Moving the furniture and boxes of lazy people for actual money. Where?

My mom may have found a new car, but it won't be available to me until September 13th. That leaves me approximately one month to do something. Anything. And I prefer to not be stuck in the city. The newest plan is to drive someone's car/belongings to wherever they want them to go. This is great because usually these people need to get their cars to a big city, which ALSO has a site on craigslist. So if I get one car to drive, perhaps I can get two. And ideally, I can get paid for my time.

Sorry, I have no idea what the hell Tricia is talking about but I promised not to edit.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Paul Potts:

Simply incredible.

"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense."

--Ralph Waldo Emerson

Please do not confuse Mr. Emerson with the actual Waldo.
Although there is a book titled "Where's Waldo Emerson"

I found him right away.

Let's continue on with our little inspiration theme by celebrating today's Iconic birthday.
Here are 3 clips to give you a hint:

Got it? Yup it's

Director of "Dead Poets Society", "Fearless" and "The Truman Show" among others....


Sorry. Don't know how that got in there. The hat confused me.

OK. That's better.

After winding through Paul around Ralph and passed Peter, I think we've reached our destination.
