I think I watched maybe…two episodes of Seinfeld during its run on TV. It never appealed to me. After all, it was really a show about nothing.
And so is this post.
So, here’s hoping your day is full of sunshine and kittens.
Unlike mine, which is full of laundry and nausea 😉

I am doing laundry today too… what a coinky-dink!
As for Seinfeld…. I love it! Whenever Seinfeld jokes come up, we get the dvd from Netflix and show them to Buttercup so she can keep up!

I swear, laundry multiplies. There is clothing I do NOT recognize… 😉

I discovered the definitive “nothing” commentary thirty-*mumble* years ago and was unable to keep a straight face for days and would even break into guffaws at the most inappropriate moments… It’s online now (of course):
A sample, from about halfway through the article, might be illustrative:
My children learned quite early nt to answer a query from Dad with, “Nothing,” since it would invariably result in,
“Nothing is an awe-inspiring yet essentially undigested concept, highly esteemed by writers of an existentialist tendency, but by most others regarded with axiety, nausea, or panic. Nobody seems to know how to deal with it (he would, of course), and plain persons generally are reported to have little difficulty in saying, seeing, hearing, and doing nothing. Philosophers, however… ” etc., until the pained expressions on their faces told me they had gotten the message that “Nothing” was not an appropriate response to my question.
To this day, they avoid a nonsensical and unresponsive “Nothing” in response to queries where it is inappropriate.
Yes, I am evil. 🙂

Hmmm. Think I will have to try that out on Rat Boy! He answers lately with the proverbial teenaged ‘nothing’ far too often for my liking. 😀
Plus, it’s always fun to find a way to annoy him. After all, that’s my job as a parent, right?
Laundry here too, Aggie. 🙂 It’s a never ending cycle it seems. (Hehe..i said cycle…) Obviously, I’m up way too early! 😛

No kittens for me, thanks, I’m allergic. But I’ll take some sunshine.

Me, I’m so freakin’ happy, I could crap rainbows.
