Random Thursday: Who’s on First? Not the Romans!

Random Thursday (ˈrandəm ˈTHərzdā): the day on which Sarah plunks down all the odd bits and pieces she’s been sent by friends or has otherwise stumbled upon in an effort to avoid writing a real post, the assembly of which usually ends up taking twice as much time as sitting down and creating actual content.

You have been warned.


An Accurate Description of Spring

At least from my sinuses’ POV.

From my temper’s POV, judging from yesterday’s desperate quest to reach Sunny’s school before they called Child Services to report an abandoned child, this works, too:


Except, you know, more in the middle of the road.

Why Didn’t You Say So?

No he didn’t, ’cause left field is too far away for him to hear.

No, Who’s over there on . . . Never mind . . .

In honor of another Sign of Spring, here’s a hilarious twist on the old classic:

[Insert Tatting Pun Here]

Knit Fast!

I was honestly contemplating this one, until my friend Cha Cha commented that those are actually crochet needles.


Then again, “Crochet Fast” doesn’t have the same je knit sais quoi.

(also via Watson—who totally deserves a badass knitting tat)


. . .I Meant Lately

Call me clueless (rhetorical statement, Mike and Downith), but I didn’t figure out what was going on until I saw the conductor.

Turns out, if you didn’t already know, that this  is  the performance of Not the Messiah (He’s a Very Naughty Boy), a show based on The Life of Brian and performed at the Albert Hall for the Ruby Jubilee of Monty Python a few years ago.

You can see the entire show on YouTube here, if you have a spare hour.   Or even if you don’t, because Monty Python is like catnip for some of us, aren’t they?

  1. I never though of knitters as badasses — but I was, apparently, mistaken.

    Now I want to see a knitter biker gang cruise by, with their colorful, wooly scarves snapping in the breeze.

    • Knitters have to be badasses to fight the stereotypes.

      The most talented knitter I know has a green skull tattooed to the back of her (shaved) head. She’s the awesome.

  2. Ah, Time-suck T’ursday.
    I was amused by the Fallon skit. Seinfeld was funny mostly because of the long cheer from the crowd. Otherwise, he seemed to have the same effect on the skit Martha Stewart would be expected to (except she’s actually got decent comedic timing).

    Not gonna do it. Not gonna look up “Not the Messiah…” because I have to decide whether I will try to stand at choir rehearsal, or if I will do the sensible thing and stay home. It’s a tough one. I did take the elevator at work like I was supposed to…

  3. The “who’s on first” skit was priceless. The original is such a great bit of comedic genius. To see Billy Crystal and Jerry Seinfeld perform an adaptation is enjoyable. All three are such big baseball fans. Jimmy Fallon does such great work at paying homage to great performers, and then turns around and does something silly (and genius) himself, like music with toy instruments.

    • I love the original so, so much, John. And I like this version very much.

      You’re right about Jimmy Fallon—as my SIL says, he’s a huge fanboy, so he wants to pay homage instead of making mock.
