  • Of course I caught the flu. What else was I going to do over the next few days?
  • I’ve fallen asleep watching a docudrama about the Yellowstone supervolcano and a biographical series, in Russian, of Leon Trotsky.
    • Now, those made for some really sweet fever dreams.
  • Apparently, I’m grumpy when I’m sick. Who knew?
  • When it comes to my career, I should have listened to my mother. I’d have made a great piano player in a whorehouse.
  • Irish Woman and Boo are trying to figure out how to fit Cub Scout camp, a family reunion, a Caribbean cruise, tea with the Queen, a voyage to Mars, and some downtime into one weekend in June. I’m excited to see how it turns out.
  • I listened to a radio play of Heinlein’s Requiem the other day. I kept seeing an elderly Elon Musk as the main character.
  • Boo really likes LawDog’s African Adventures, but recently he asked his mother what White Horse whisky and Playboy magazine are.
    • Yeah, I had some ‘splaining to do.
  • I recently mailed a letter on official Hogwarts stationary and put a Scooby-Doo stamp on the envelope. The funny thing is that it didn’t seem at all odd.

    This year (so far) the flu shot is working.
    But the regular cold lasted almost a month.

    One of the possible answers to the busy weekend could be a combination of cloning, time dilation, and alternate universes. (universi?)


  2. I got a mild case of the ‘flu back in November, made milder by the shot and repeated exposure (working with little vectors, er, teenagers). MomRed had the shot and did OK. DadRed had waited to get the shot and was flat on his back for a while. Not fun.

    I can see where Mr. Dog’s stories might lead to more education than parents had planned on.

    I’ve always thought of Elon Musk as DD Harriman. I wonder if he’s read Heinlein? It seems likely since everyone has read something by Heinlein.
