How You Know I'm Stupid

For the past two days it has been warm. Very warm. Some might even say it was hot.
"It was so hot I saw a little man in an orange robe burst into flames!"
Ok, maybe not THAT hot.
So how do I know I'm stupid?
I've spent the last three days up to right now gardening with my wife.
That's right: I've been outdoors the whole time planting trees, plants, and more. Built a fountain, dug a trench, Planted way too many plants, weeded, and more.
Was it fun? Sure.
Am I cooked like a Thanksgiving Turkey? Most definitely.
Have I done any grading? Um...next question.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ok, quick ramble:
1. Congratulations to
DeRusha and the funky fresh WCCO crew for becoming number one in the ratings. Yes, I'm a week late, but it's the thought that counts. Plus, I'm a viewer...sometimes. Here's hoping for another successful year.
2. The Pope went to Auschwitz. It sounds like the start of a really good joke, but it's actually real. There was a fantastic photo of him standing in front of the gates staring into the camp on one of the news stations. It was almost as if you could hear his mind going, "Oh I remember this place. The memories...."
It's ironic. The man was a part of the Hitlerjunge, and now he leads the Catholic world. Who knew God had such a great sense of humor. Strike that: I've seen a Platypus up close. Still, do you think there's a little irony in him visiting? Just a little?
Plus, do you think maybe the Vatican is doing a little damage control because this new pope is not really well liked? (You try following John II, the Revenge.) He goes to Auschwitz, meets with a Rabbi, and maybe the world says, "Hmm...maybe he's not such a bad guy."
I'm just saying....
Ok, that's it. Happy Memorial Day (Oxymoron) and Happy Birthday Jolene.
Namaste.

Thanks Leab! It's fun to be number one. Some people are giving the credit to strong CBS lead-ins, or a fresh approach to covering the news, but I'm pretty sure it's because I'm awesome.

Definately because you are so awesome Jason! That is the only reason I watch! Belated congrats to you all. (I must admit I have been out of the loop the past couple of weeks, and did not even know this until Leab just told us. Sorry about that!) Thank you Leab for again informing us of the happenins of the world!

I think CCO's success is attributable to the fact that they have real, solid countertops and not just laminates like some stations I could mention. It really gives a newscaster something substantial to lay his notes on.

Ladies and Gentlemen: Don Shelby. Round of applause for the elder stateman and his countertop observation.

Oooh, you know how to get a guy where it hurts. Now I have to reveal my true identity.

Leab said...

Welcome back. Glad to see petitions to Blogger work.
Now...don't fuck it up this time.
Much love.

I second what Leab said to Worm. We missed you!

The countertop is also helped by the river rocks sitting on a little tray in front of the anchor desk.

Wow, I can see the Lifetime Network series now: Sprucing up your anchor desk for $100 or less.
