    This morning, I made a cup of coffee, logged in here and chit-chated with people all over the world like it was nothing. Amazing.

    I went to look up a copy of the email text, to mess around a little more and found this. It seems someone made up a version where the Nigerian government is attempting to assist their astronaut who has been trapped on the ISS for a decade.

    That was also shared on here many years ago, if I recall correctly.

    The astronaut just learned to play guitar and sing.

    Just found this out a minute ago. While a British ship was going down after being bombed the crew started to sing a Monty Python song.

    The host of this video is a Brit who is restoring a 108 year old sailing yacht in Sequim, WA, which I can see from my house. (Watching the entire series is highly recommended.) He's currently on a visit back to the UK and I got a chuckle out of him teaching a friend how to say "Sequim". It's "Skwim", not the way it looks.

    While watching the WSH I remembered a story. Years ago I was doing a telescope tour and then heard some noise outside. Some art students were filming a James Bond type introduction with a bright light on a wall on this roof. Just what I needed.

    I went to Little Caesars for a pizza tonight. The deal is $5 for a pizza, no waiting. It isn't really good food, but it's $5 each and no waiting.

    I ordered 2 and the guy at the register told me 10 minutes. Ok, sure. I sort of milled around the lobby until the manager came to the front and started yelling at the guy. "Those pizzas are ready made, there are two right HERE!" The cashier muttered that I ordered two supreme pizzas and those had to be made. The manager pulled up the order and confirmed that I had not ordered two supreme pizzas and the yelling started again.

    No one was talking to me and I had 8 minutes to kill so I went back out to my car to drink my coffee and talk to my wife. We laughed and laughed about the whole 10 minute thing. As we are sitting there, it seemed that the manager decided to put the youngest and most inexperienced person on the register. She was also obviously one of the cooks because she kept vanishing. Soon there were so many orders, this young woman was replaced by the dishwasher.

    After 5 minutes, I went back in. Amazingly, the young woman pointed me out and the dishwasher gave me my order, done to "$10 perfection". As I walked out, I heard the manager yelling again, "Don't let him ring! And keep an eye on him!" Yelling wasn't really necessary, my wife heard it in the car.

    Oh, boy.
