Here I am, writing Frappy Hiday on this Blue Moon of July 31. 2015, using a 2003 model Tiger Systemax computer on Open Office software and some very old fingers doing the typing; those were built in 1954 but I don’t remember anything about the moon from those days because I was very small and my brain had not yet discovered animal crackers or even raisin flavored potato chips; and of course this silly, ridiculous glob of words is here to tell you that you now can enjoy the run-on sentence one can often expect in any given installment of Hippy Fardy.
As many of you never knew, a Blue Moon has come to mean the 2nd full moon in a month; which of course only happens once in a blue moon. And of course, blue moons occur every two or three years or so; and if you don’t believe me just ask me some time. There is also a bunch of folklore that surrounds the saying “blue moon,” but I’m not gonna elaborate on that here and you can’t make me. Instead, I double-D dare ya to learn about it the same way I did…
I just looked it up… HERE!! <–(click me, click me ooohh aaahhh cha cha cha)
So then I earlier ran outside without even running and looked up into the clear blue sky and wondered to myself whether or not the sky could possibly be any more blue; and as nightfall fell while falling I looked at this gorgeous full moon thing and was hoping the moon would make blueness, which is actually a word, and I know this because I just looked that up also; and I went yet AGAIN with the run-on sentence awreddy.
So Happy Friday didn’t Happen because our Internet was kaputt, which makes me very sad indeed, because we pay $40 for faster-than-dialup “high speed” wireless internet; and it works ok much of the time but there are times when it doesn’t work worth a flarn and then I call Customer Support and they are not very Supportive, and they tell me to check my equipment and I tell them I do this crap for a living and I already checked my equipment but I’m careful not to be rude because they are there to help me but if we have extended internet badness they give me a break on my bill so that’s pretty cool I guess so I’ll just have to live with it please stop me from making this sentence oh ouch my fingers are hurting awreddy.
So now it’s not Friday anymore, but because you are my friends I wanted to send you some writings. It’s Sunday, and we just got the grandkids to bed. All of us sat outside and watched the storms come in until it began to tinkle on us. Then the large tinkles came.
OK. Hope you all had a nice weekend. I went swimming in Lake Michigan today. The waves were BIG. Reminded me of the ocean when I was a kid.
I wonder if King Neptune lives in Lake Michigan??
