Time for sunshine and freckles.



Let's be wholesome now. Enough of the inside of a wax-and-roach-impacted ear, the fake world of video games, the gelatinous goo of Ooho, the sinister knock-out drops, the indescribable level of lying, and the satanism... which is all I've talked about here since last night, when I put up the last wholesome thing, which was also doggy.

You and Meade(Hobbs) dogparents.

When did the article "an" (the inside of a ear) disappear from the English language? I'm not singling you out, I hear and read this frequently now in many upper scale places, NPR, NYT, etc. OTOH, I can see how adhering to traditional grammar or to any number of other less simple traditional forms can become a time suck to be dispensed with ASAP once everyone starts doing it.

We had a dog named Freckles when I was young -- beagle/terrier mix, loved to chase after rabbits while baying.

Stank. That's why she lived in a doghouse outside.

Sunshine, lollipops and rainbows everything that's wonderful
Is what I feel a-when we're together, brighter than a lucky penny
When you're near the raindrops disappears, dear
And I feel so fine just to know that you are mine

My life is sunshine, lollipops and rainbows
That's how this refrain goes, so come on join in everybody

Sunshine, lollipops and rainbows, everything that's wonderful
Is sure to come your way, when you're in love to stay

""The law is a ass," said Mr. Bumble."

Yes, I just noticed that I wrote "a ear."

That's what happens when you delete an adjective. But what was the adjective? I made up a new one and inserted it... like a cockroach in an ear.

Xeroderma pigmentosum will always appear when the sun shines brightly.

MadisonMan's problem with dogs named Freckles is a problem with all dogs that is not bathed regularly.

I solve the problem by hanging out with cats - although I have never run across one named Freckles.

Sorry...late to the party and to not talk dogs, but nice ass-to-grass squat! Ann's feet are even straight, requiring more flexibility than having them turned out. Little kids can do that; also primitive peoples who eat and eliminate those eats in that position. However, law professors and bloggers of that (ahem) vintage who spend too much time in the bane of civilization...chairs? No way! Yoga?

I once got a flying insect stuck inside my ear. It wasn't a mosquito nor a housefly but it could flutter. My girlfriend had me lie down on the floor head to the side, earhole up. She dripped rubbing alcohol into my ear canal and the insect abruptly backed out, crawled around a bit, and then died. I'm glad it didn't die inside my ear.

@strongoldguy Thanks for appreciating my physical prowess.

I don't do yoga. I do work with my desk in the standup position a lot of the time, teach standing up (80 minute classes), and walk a bit (and do other easy exercises like biking and cross country skiing).

When I sit at my desk, I usually have my legs up crossed under me, and I do not feel right sitting with my legs down in the normal American style.

I appreciate all the doggie, sunset & flower pictures, don't get me wrong, but just once I'd like to see Althouse doing something like, say, shooting a machine gun (or even large caliber pistol). Even a doctored photo like Obama's. Just for variety. Contextual, blogospherical, philosophical chiaroscuro to keep the sweetness-and-light blandness at bay.
