Dang it. My obstreperatrician has diagnosed me with LLD (Lounging and Loafing Deficit). It looks like I’m going to be forced to retire deep into the Texas Hill Country for a couple of days. The prickly pears are in bloom. You haven’t loafed until you’ve spent an afternoon sitting under a post oak tree in a field of cactuses covered with pyschedelic yellow flowers.
I think there’s internet out there, but it’s dial-up, which won’t do me any good since there’s no phone. My gist is that I’ll most likely be incommunicado over the weekend, which I mention because I don’t want anyone thinking I’m dead.
Not that I couldn’t die over the weekend anyway, eaten alive by fire ants, chomped by a rattler, prickly pear impalement. But this contingency would be unexpected.
Anyway, while I’m out looking at scenery, for the sake of our mutual amusement, let’s do one of those open threads. I suggest, if you link to something, that you give a brief critical analysis along with it, so people will have something to argue about.
