So Damn Sick & Tired... I Give Up!



The last few days were "interesting". I am feeling about as fed up with things as Ben Bernanke is about the economy I suspect, so last night in a fit of passion, bordering on rage, I did the following:

1. Shaved off my beard and moustache for the first time since I was 19 (that is a helluva long time ago).

2. Took all my pipes out of their various locations around my home, truck, shed, office, lab, wife's car, garage, and anywhere else I could remember storing some, and then proceeded to put them in a pile on the driveway and stomp on all of them. The breaking of the stems and bowls left a messy rubble. I quit!

3. I took the "pledge" to be a damn tee-totalling abstainer.

4. I took a bottle of my wife's hair dye and proceeded to dye my hair so that the top of my head now looks like a matt of dark brown yarn.

April Fools!

Yes, I know my "joke" may not have been that surprising, and that the transparency of my "actions" were perhaps obvious falsehoods to you my long-time readers and friends.

What?!?! You didn't know? Today *IS APRIL 2nd* not April 1st. So what gives? Well, here is the best way I can put it:



You see... today may not technically be April Fool's Day, but it is the day we are governmentally sanctioned to celebrate it because the actual day was a Sunday! :) I hope you may have gotten at least a glimmer of a smile from my attempt at a joke.

You didn't fool me for a second and I'm usually easily fooled being as I don't do the April fools thing so don't see them coming at me.
