Derby Day

Also on Uncle Duke's MobileRead's Doughnut Day (the 2nd of each month) for May 2009 there will be a horse race in Louisville called the Kentucky Derby.

This is also the first leg of the triple crown of horse racing.

What are your plans?

Is there really a horse race? I thought it was just a hat fashion show.

Go Canucks!

Technically it'll be the 3rd when I have my "organic" donut from the Farmers' Markets, but, as they say, the sun is over the yardarm, et cerera, et cetera...

Also, only two people voted for "not in Kansas", and one of them was me...so who else is in Oz this weekend, and which airport do they want me to pick them up from? I've the drinks ready, and have hired the outriggers for some open sea "Big Game" Piscatorial Dentistry (I'll hold the shark's head, you drive the gas pipe into Brown Town then get back up here quick-smart for that root canal).

Cheers,
Marc (Did I mention the drinking?)

I didn't see the wink there Marc so maybe you didn't recognize this poll is public. Or was this a veiled, or not so veiled, invitation to our Paris friend to escape the predations of the tiny winged variety to the larger finned variety?

I only give winks or nods to blind horses. Also, I'm lazy. Also, I didn't notice. Also, it's late. Also, I've run out of excuses, and vodka, and hyper-shrooms, and small, crunchy iridescent beetles that taste a little like lime jelly doesn't. Forgive me?

Veiled? I would do the Dance of Veils for Queen Zee if it would have her flee from that meteorologically schizophrenic SHUM-haven mosquito-farm to our beautiful world filled to the multi-legged brim with natural predators of the mossie. I've even offered to supply all of the ducklings she can eat. I've pointed out the 25 hours of free reading time she would get on the plane. The beautiful, warm, humid, tropical weather. Still, she refuses. ~sigh~ It's enough to make one despair, if it only hadn't left me with so much ZCD and so little to have to share.

Have you ever seen a drunk shark? Well, okay, I have, but it was a wobbegong and they're notorious piss-heads, and hardly ever shout, and if you pick them up on it they turn on you, but it's more of a nibble than a bite and they taste nice battered with chips and some salt and vinegar after a night on the crawl, so, it's all good.

What?

Cheers,
Marc (Not in Kansas)
