Random Acts of Blogness

The time has come, the walrus said, to talk of many things
Of shoes, and ships, and sealing wax,
of cabbages and kings,
and why the sea is boiling hot,
and whether pigs have wings.
--Alice in Wonderland, by Lewis Carroll

If a list of disparate thoughts is good enough for Lewis Carroll, then by Jove, it's good enough for me. Fasten your seatbelts, and keep your arms inside the blog at all time:

1. Internet Truism: Pirates are Funny
It doesn't matter who you are; if you dress like a pirate, you are funny and beloved. Even the Bloglines Plumber, who represents a website when it is BROKEN, is now being dressed as a pirate. And you know what? I love it. Who can get mad when there is a pirate? It's impossible. And if you can throw in a little pirate-speak? HilARRRRRRRRRious, Matey!

2. Sometimes it's better not to know
BSTuna sent me this picture which was odd enough on its own

The idea of spinning a chunky custom fun yarn with Baby Jesus beads that look like a mummy with a teeny tiny CD on top of his head is a little weird. I can't imagine knitting any sort of garment where the Baby Jesus could get stuck in your nose or or armpit. The real puzzlement comes from the title of the picture file I was sent: JesusButton. Now, since BSTuna is currently nowhere to be seen and I can't ask what the heck "JesusButton" means, I decided to consult my boyfriend. The answers were inconclusive, but the pictures were just BIZZARE.

Odd. . . I could have sworn Lewis Carroll, not C. S. Lewis (who seems to have written everything else) wrote ALICE IN WONDERLAND.

DOH! And that's why I shouldn't be writing this stuff so late at night...

Well, that's my daily dose of weirdness right here in Tuna Land. do realize, I think, that The Walrus and the Carpenter is from Through the Looking-Glass, not Alice in Wonderland? All mimsy were the quotes...and the mome raths outgrabe.
