How About That?

Wa-Hoo! B von B, back in the house, and back from the oh-so-compelling 7 days of shock and awe.

I must be brief today (yuh, right...), as I've been out of the compound, running amok here and there, and generally playing hooky from all responsibility. And now it is time. To face the music. Perchance, to dance.

Before I get started (remember, Baroness - brief), may I tell you just how much I love these guys?
Brendan Gleeson & Colin Farrell
This is how I spent part of my afternoon, watching "In Bruges". That Mr. Gleeson - ooh, he's quite the guy. I would love to spend an afternoon yik-yakking with him. And for most of the movie, I actually liked Colin Farrell - something I wouldn't usually find myself saying. The story itself? Eh. It was pretty good right up to the end. And then, it ended. With me sitting in my seat going "wha-a-a-?"

An-n-n-n-y-ways, it's a chock-a-block week, and something pretty special each day. I couldn't help myself.

Sunday, April 6th
There is still time for you to rummage your way to the old record collections, find that cherished hunk 0' vinyl, and listen to the dulcet tones of The Bay City Rollers: S-A-T-U-R, D-A-Y, night! S-A-T-U-R, D-A-Y, night! Today, in all the smart countries (Canada, US, Scotland, Australia, New Zealand - hey! No fighting, you two) it's "N-A-T-I-O, N-A-L, (Tartan) DAY". If you don't have a clan, today's the day to ingratiate yourself into one. And if you don't have anything tartan, why not make your own with some Sharpies? This could be great fun. Please - no pictures. On second thought...

Monday, April 7th
Like I need an excuse. On a Monday, no less. Today is "No Housework Day" - knock yourself out.

Tuesday, April 8th
On a clear day, Babs says, you can see forever. On a clear night, you can see the mothership hovering over there by Orion's Belt. Or is that just me? Hm. Today is "Astronomy Day" - get a blanket and a snuggle bunny, and head outdoors to behold the great infinity surrounding us.

For those in an inclement weather area, watching any version of Star Trek/Star Wars/Dancing With the Stars will suffice.

Wednesday, April 9th
Cigar. Bowler. Jowls of steel. Shex-ay accent. 350 lbs of manly man. Yup, it's "Winston Churchill Day". Be nice - this guy is not doing so great at right now - he has nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat.

It is also the 175th anniversary of the opening of the first Public Library. It's time to dust off that copy of "Tropic of Capricorn", and get it back there. If you're lucky, they're having an amnesty day today, and you'll get off without the $3011.25 in late charges. HURRY!!

Thursday, April 10th
This is a day after my own heart, and I'm sure there are so many others of you out there who could do your part to - "Encourage a Young Writer Day". The Baroness truly misses her girly get-togethers with Miss Sadie and crew (who aren't so young anymore). Say a kind word to a young 'un, because there really is a world of words inside us all.

Friday, April 11th
Oh, how the Baroness loves happy music. You know this. I also love the kitsch. So, imagine a day that rolls it all up into one big sappy ball - "Barbershop Quartet Day". Come down by the old mill stream, sweet Adeline, and we'll have a listen. See that cute one, 2nd from the left? Yes, sir, that's my baby.

Have a faboo week, one and all!

With Affection,
The Baroness

OMG. Every time I hear "Saturday Night" I totally channel So I Married An Axe Murderer. Too damned funny!

Baroness von Bloggenschtern said...

Countess NATUI: "He'll be crying himself to sleep tonight - on his gigantic pillow". That movie is sheer genius!

Asthmagirl said...

No housework day? I'm on board! Oddly enough, I'm paying the youngest to do housework today. That way we both get what we want!

Baroness von Bloggenschtern said...

Countess AG:
WHA-A-A-A-AT? You have children who can be monitarily bribed into housework? Count your blessings, dear.

Not Afraid to Use It said...

Like an orange on a toothpick... God, I could do this for days! LOL

Baroness von Bloggenschtern said...

Countess NATUI: Say, did you happen to see, the most beautiful girl in the wharuld? ;)

"Today is "No Housework Day" - knock yourself out."

No housework on any day will get me knocked out by The Missus.

I took a little mental vacation at the reference to Babs' "On a Clear Day ...."

I, too, love happy music. I wonder when square dancing will come back en vogue??

Countess Babs: Really - did it ever go out of vogue? Me and my swirly skirt beg to differ.

One of my first dates with the Baron, we were walking around downtown, and I heard square dancing music. We followed the sounds, and lo and behold, in the middle of CoolTown was a ____ (gaggle?)(herd?) of square dancers. I clapped my hands with glee, and made Baron stand around watching for about a hour.

He knew early on what he was getting into. Oops, that kind of sounded a little naughty...

You know what I mean.
