Taking a Stab at it or All Hail Caesar

Ever heard that saying "Beware the Ides of March"?  Yea, me too.  But I had no idea what it meant.  So I did the Google thing.  ('Cause Google knows everything, except who is going to clean my house if I don't get my lazy butt off the couch sometime soon.  But you would think Google would know these things!  Sheesh!)

The Ides of March?  Just happens to be today (March 15th) and it really has no life altering significance.  It doesn't make winter last longer.  That day belongs to Punxsutawney Phil.  It's not the international-we-all-are-suddenly-Irish-for-24-hours-day.  That day belongs to St. Patrick.  It's definitely not the longest day of the year.  ~Unless you happen to be re-acting the great couch-potato famine of 2007 where certain people didn't leave the couch for 2 days because there was a Law & Order Marathon and they were too lazy to get up to go get food. (Certain people being moi.)  So really, the Ides of March appears to be of absolutely no importance what~so~ever...

Unless you just happened to have been Julius Caesar in about 44b.c.  In which case, March 15th would have been a big pain in the neck....  And the back...  And the chest....  But hey, you would have had some pretty killer friends.  (Somebody stop me before I pun again!)

Oh, what I will do when I am bored out of my skull on a Saturday and am trying to avoid the mountain of cleaning that needs to be done.  Beware the Ides of March and a bored silly blogger.

That's quite the couch potato marathon you had going! I say for what to do instead, you come up to Dallas and we could have gone to the St Patty's Day parade instead of my lame SO who refused to get up! Now that would have been fun, right?

Oh, I LOVE Law and Order! I think I've seen them all, so a marathon now would be redundant, but I would so do that! In fact, I didn't get out of my jammies until 7pm tonight. I was suppossed to go get a pedicure and see a movie...but I'm too sloth-like. There's always tomorrow!

OK- you know it was Rob & I that hold the "Law & Order" marathon, couch potato record!! I'm pretty sure we're in a record book somewhere!! Even if we've seen them twenty times over-- you never know when you catch a pun from Lenny that you missed or forgot from two yrs ago!! Of course, now, we have to add CSI to the marathon record!! Wonder how they would have worked the "Caesar" scene!! Who dealt the fatal stab????

Vanessa and Lisa should have gone down on lower Grenville to the bars and had a bunch of green beer and watched the parade. Why? 'Cause it's fun.

Then go shopping (while drunk) and spend $1,000 on shit you don't need at Harold's on Mockingbird Lane.

Why? 'Cause it's fun.

And, yeah, I did that in 1997.
