"My favorite day," said Pooh.

Thank you, D. Glenn, for posting this X days ago and for (hopefully!!) making people smile a bit, as it's made me do.
(Oddly, this made me wonder why Piglet didn't have a mother. There were Kanga and Roo, yes, but where is Sow to Piglet?) This post was originally made at http://misschili.dreamwidth.org/169882.h

That is all for the day. Or the week. Or the month.

Without going into detail -- because one shouldn't go in the tail, but ... no, not the butt, either, so... :-) -- I'm posting this video I found of The Muppets doing "Lime in the Coconut"! ...except, gosh darnit, I can't figure out how to embed the freakin' video here ... :-S
Did You Know?
If you like your steaks rare you might say “I like them bloody” but the red liquid that comes out of a rare steak isn’t actually blood (the majority of which is removed during slaughter) but water retained in the muscle tissue mixed with a protein called myoglobin.

I was sitting in my wheelchair out in the hallway while Per stepped in, and I was being teased by the sign for a blueberry doughnut with white chocolate icing.
Yeah, that's so not fair.
It sounded amazingly good to me, but not to Per.
Ah well, the little blueberry doughnut's life was spared.
At least until the next person came by...

Argh. I can't go back to write whatthehellever I was thinking about, but here is the written torture device:
I followed a link to the following intently interesting, fierce article that I swear I've read before and may have linked to herein previously. Since I can't be arsed to search for such a link, don't bother doing so yourselves. And onward to the snippets from said article:
Sheer terror can be an energizing force, as the medical world is learning through the tremendously transformational patient advocacy being done on behalf of CCSVI research, a movement whose spirited core is animated not only by the horror of the damage the disease may wreak, but also at a dogmatic medical profession that seems stuck in neutral, unable to give up on theories that are treated as fact despite there being little or no evidence to back them.
( ... )
As with all things in nature, the darkness of fear is accompanied by the light of courageousness, as is demonstrated every day by those of us who by sheer power of will make it through another stanza in the face of pain, weakness, and frustration, more often than not speaking nary a word of the terror within. Sometimes we cry, sometimes we scream, but most of the time we just go about our business as best we can, and that may be the most courageous act of them all.

Every. Frickin'. Thing.
Every online experience, and coming to include real-world experience.
Yeah, now I've gotten mail from the hospital asking for me to fill in a form online about how good or gratifying or whateverthefuck my latest experience at the goddamnmotherfucking MS clinic turned out out to be.
Depending on my mood, I might say that my latest experience was good or bad, if I'm still alive to respond to the form.

Nigel Slater started off telling a story about a dish he had a taste of however many years ago, and he was going to recreate it there. It was lamb with yoghurt sauce, which sounds tasty to me. Having looked up the recipe online, I turned my attention to the subtitles.
Having heated up the pan, Slater was priming it by adding some oil, some sort of dill oil, I suppose it was because the subtitle in Damnish read
Yes, I saw only the first five letters in the word, which led me to wonder, 'Okay, the oil I get, but how does the dildo factor into it?!'
(Not at all seriously, I hope you all know!)
(Oh, and the Damnish word for dill ends in a silent d.)
