Do you ever have one of those days where you don't even have enough time to procrastinate (=read the entire DLD)? Do you wish your could have Cate Blanchette read you the DLD aloud while you sip a delicious beverage, preferably somewhere near clear water and blue skies? Well, that sure as shootin' ain't gonna happen, but I've thought up the next best thing...or maybe the 567th next best thing: the DLD Digest, aka DLD for Dummies, DLD in a Nutshell -- you get the idea. So without further ado, her is today's DLD Digest.
BCG celebrated MaEl's birthday with some cool pix and some kind words from Terry Francona. Most of the DLD itself was spent arguing whether it is cool to pick on nerds, with salb918 standing up for the nerds...uh...socially and aesthetically challenged people, and several others playing the part of bullies. Some time was devoted to the question of whether people -- including Canadians -- should stand during the national anthem. Much excitement was generated by the possibility of a feature film based on the Thundercats. Has anything positive been said about Ron Washington in Texas? AN wants to know. There were also far too many pictures of cats. And jubjub's moving back to Boston in time for sal jr's 1st birthday. Are people who say "pellow" and "melk" "batshit insane"? Is A's-BoSox lovin' unnatural? Any questions?
