Tuesday: Hili dialogue

Good morning on the Cruelest Day: Tuesday, November 29, 2022: National Chocolates Day (note the plural). I will recommend once again See’s Candies as the source of the best American chocolates, regardless of price; they’re better than overprice brands like Godiva. Look at this box! It’s also National Lemon Creme Pie Day (what is “creme”?), … Continue reading Tuesday: Hili dialogue

Saturday: Hili dialogue

Greetings on a CatSaturday, December 3, 2022: It’s National Peppermint Latte Day. Shoot me now! This vile “libation” instantiates Coyne’s Fifth Law: “All snacks ultimately evolve toward candy” (granola bars, fizzy water, and now lattes.) It’s also National Apple Pie Day, but then things go downhill, for it’s also National Green Bean Casserole Day and … Continue reading Saturday: Hili dialogue

Saturday: Hili dialogue

We’re at Thanksgiving CatSaturday: November 26, 2022: National Cake Day. My favorites in the genre are carrot cake with cream-cheese frosting and pineapple upside-down cake. It’s also Good Grief Day, celebrating the creator of “Peanuts”, Charles Schulz, born on this day in 1922, and Small Business Saturday. And that’s it: a thin day for celebrations. … Continue reading Saturday: Hili dialogue

Wednesday: Hili dialogue

We’ve reached the Ides of May: Wednesday, May 15, 2019. It’s National Chocolate Chip Day, but of course you don’t eat them on your own (unless you’re stoned). It’s also International Conscientious Objectors Day, which I’ll celebrate because I was one. The big news is of course the odious Alabama abortion bill, but we’ll get … Continue reading Wednesday: Hili dialogue

Friday: Hili dialogue (and Leon monologue)

Hola from Puebla, Mexico, where the weather is predicted to be full-on sunny for the three more days I’ll be here, with highs between 72 and 78° F  (22-26°C). Posting will be light today as I’ve a lot to see and do.  There are old friends here—I rode in from the airport with Robyn Blumer … Continue reading Friday: Hili dialogue (and Leon monologue)

Monday: Hili dialogue (and Leon monologue)

As the Aussies say, “Gooday, mates”. It’s May 15, 2017, and another damn Monday. It’s also National Chocolate Chip Day, promulgated by Big Chocolate. Meh. But I am celebrating International Conscientious Objectors Day, as I was one of them. I abjure violence (though I likely would  have fought in a “just war” like WWII), and the last time … Continue reading Monday: Hili dialogue (and Leon monologue)
