Deep thoughts in the morning...

While reading the comics: Mary Worth is one meddlesome bitch. Mind your own beeswax, Mary.

While I was fixing breakfast: For some reason I had Paul Anka's Having My Baby running through my head. I even sang a little of it. Remember that song? And for the one thousandth time I wondered: is the song sweet, or just a little creepy?

While getting the paper: There was an earthworm crawling across the driveway. So I picked him up and brought him over to the grass so he could be safe. Then I got to thinking: what balls these worms have! That's a gutsy journey to undertake, that trek across concrete. They have no advance scouting, they have no idea how long it will take, or what is on the other side, or even if there is another side. It's a complete unknown, like back in the 1400's when explorers would set sail. Who knew what they would find, or even if they would make it back?

Worms have guts. Worms have adventurous souls. Worms have an indomitable spirit. Worms rock!

Note to Eric: none of this was about blogging. Happy now, you bastard?

Hmmm. I never really thought about worms. But I knew this girl in highschool who would pick them up and put them in her pocket so she could keep them as her pets.

Were you channeling Gandhi's spirit when you transported the worm to safety?

And thanks a shitload for reloading Having My Baby into what I am certain to be an endlessly repeating loop in my cranial mp3 player. Now how the hell am I going to get through the day?

Lori--Well, properly seasoned, of course!

Heather--Did she ride the short bus to school?

Nanuk--"What a lovely way of saying that you're thinking of me..."

Worms have internal organs. Dissecting them in biology was fun!

Good thing that song doesn't get airplay anymore. We have enough teen pregnancy.

Jaws--But I never put him back in the direction he came from, I put him down where he was headed! :)

Stacy--Yeah, that's what I'm thinking...

Pup--That's my early morning thought process for you!

Aww. That's what Nicholas and I do--take the worms and such back to where they can be safe. We've seen too many of them scorched and dried up on the concrete driveway. Even he knows at age 5 that the worms are good, even for Georgia clay!

YOU rock!

How do you know you didn't put the worm back where he started from? :)

OMG - that song reminds me so much of being little. That was one of my Dad's "sunday records". There's a whole list of songs that he used to play and that was one of them!

All creatures have guts.
Even Yankees! ;)

Happy Friday...

Now I'm sining about having my worm...ick.

Well, actually earthworms are hermaphroditic meaning each worm has organs of both sexes. So it may have balls, but it also has some delightful female anatomy. How much easier would WE have it if we had both? I wouldn't have to pick up dirty underwear and gym socks anymore...

Paul Anka and worms? Aren't we having an interesting morning...

Off to ponder worms...

Blogger Mr. Fabulous said...

Ginnie--YOU and Nicholas ROCK!

S--Because I communicate telepathically with the worms.

Amber--May your weekend be eventful and worm-filled!

Mimi--well, I AM one of the great thinkers of our time!

Rebacca--Yankees too? Are you sure?

CP--Happy to help!

Saur--Plus you know what else...

Deb--Let me know what ponderables you come up with!

An earthworm can sing "You're Having My Baby" to himself.

Argh! Pins in my eyes! Pins in my eyes! Must we Canadians apologize for Paul Anka forever? We did NOT vet that song before he released it.

No Paul Anka. Please. Thank you.

We now return you to our regularly scheduled program.

/tries desperately to derail Anka loop on cranial mp3 player. Fails miserably. Shots self.

Dixie--LMAO Best comment EVER! :)

Dawn--I forgot that Paul Anka was Canadian. What symetry! I might be a genius!

Glad you won the contest...

What a horrible song to have trapped in your head. Although I guess it's better trapped in there then out in the world where it could creep out impressionable ears. Shudder.

PeeBug--That's ok, better late than never! Thanks for stopping by!

Me--It's a public service I'm doing, I tell ya!

Ah, Mary Worth...is there any problem she can't solve? And have you noticed that everyone looks alike in the strip except for their hair? It's true!
