Temporarily Out of Service

The Curmudgeon-at-Large is temporarily out of service (gathering topics to complain about) but will return sometime in late winter/early spring.

In the meantime, Bah! Humbug!

Girl’s Bicycle

The true test of an English major is knowing the difference between a “girl’s used bicycle” and a “used girl’s bicycle.”

The End

The End

Although I am not at death’s door, there are those moments when I can see the door from here.  To prepare for the Day of Atonement, I have a few requests for my all my loved ones (family and friends).

First, don’t say “He passed.”  I died.  Saying “He passed” sounds like I had a bad urinary experience or an unhappy encounter with cannibals.

“Two cannibalistic ship captains passed each other in the night.”

Second, don’t say “He is in a better place.”  Repeated requests to all Abrahamic religions – Judaism, Christianity, and Islam – have produced diddly squat so there is no corroboration for this assertion.  You can say that I am in good company.

“You go to Heaven for the scenery and hell for the company.” –Mark Twain

I may have better luck with Buddhists because a Zen Buddhist pizza guy once said he would make me one with everything.

Third, please do not have responses say anything about resting in peace.  I have no such intention.  For eternity, I plan to pester, bother, aggravate and, in general, annoy anyone who ever incurred my wrath.

“Agitate, agitate, agitate.” –Frederick Douglass

If you wish to delay the inevitable arrival of death’s door at the end, you can listen to the interminable The End by The Doors:

Autumnal Equinox

Looking for a brief explanation of the autumnal equinox on Saturday, September 22nd?

Autumnal equinox

For an instant, the plane of the equinoctial colure will be perpendicular to the earth’s orbital radius vector.

Simple as that!
