It’s Wednesday, September 14 in the U.S., we’ve made it halfway though the week. Assuming you haven’t died this week, you’re still alive! The other good news is that it’s National Eat A Hoagie day (see post from two days ago) as well as National Cream Filled Donut Day. I wonder why they don’t have National Kale Day or National Quinoa Day. . .
It’s also the birthday of Amy Winehouse (♥♥born 1983, died 2011), which I’ll celebrate by embedding one of her videos below. Also on this day in history, Theodore Roosevelt became President in 1901 after William McKinley died from an assassin’s bullet.
Other notables besides Amy born on this day include Clayton Moore, who played the Lone Ranger (1914), and Kate Millett (1934). Those who died on this day include John Harvard (1638), Dom Pérignon (1715; I have one bottle!), Aaron Burr (1836), and Isadora Duncan (1927; strangled by a scarf caught in the wheel of her open-top car). Meanwhile in Dobrzyn, Hili continues with her enigmatic monologues. I would say she’s on ‘nip, but she doesn’t use the stuff:
Hili: When you look at reality you see that it is reality.A: And what are you looking at?Hili: Reality.
Hili: Kiedy przyglądasz się rzeczywistości, widzisz że to jest rzeczywistość.
Ja: A czemu się przyglądasz?
Meanwhile in frigid Winnipeg, where seals have invaded people’s ice-covered swimming pools, Gus has extracted the last crunchie from his food-filled ball, purchased to give the moggie some exercise. Disgusted, he slaps the empty ball away:
In memory of Amy, a good Jewish girl gone bad due to Evil Men and Drugs, here’s her rendition (I’ve posted this before) of Al Kooper’s song “I love you more than you’ll ever know”. She’s all glammed up:
