Thursday: Hili dialogue

Good morning on Thursday, September 17, 2020, National Apple Dumpling Day. (I like mine with cream or vanilla ice cream: is that a meme that’s parasitized my mind?)

It’s the start of another damn work week: Monday, September  14, 2020: National Cream-Filled Doughnut Day.

Friday: Hili dialogue

TCCIF: Thank Ceiling Cat it’s Friday! It’s September 11, 2020,a day of remembrance. It’s also National Hot Cross Buns Day. I could use one or two, as it’s 5:30 am and I am HUNGRY!

Wednesday: Hili dialogue

Top o’ the morning to you on a coolish Wednesday, September 9, 2020. It’s National “I Love Food” Day, which is fine (who doesn’t love food?), but why the scare quotes. Is it a day to just pretend you love food? I hope not, for as Dr. Johnson said, “He who does not mind his belly, […]
