Mayans & Watermelons - Duck!

layouts myspace

Beginning today, I'll be working a few more hours per week. I was perfectly happy with 20, but there's a lot of work and they say they need me more, and it's not like I can't use a little extra money, so there 'ya go. I really, really hope that the specter of "full-time" never ends up on the table. I haven't worked full-time in more than ten years and have no desire to start again now. I'll no doubt be one tired cookie by the time I get home this afternoon. Wish me luck.

A few notes of interest on this fine Monday:

Based on an ancient Mayan calendar, a few apocalyptic sects in the U.S., Canada, and Europe are gearing up for the end of the world again, this time on December 21, 2012. Nobody seems crystal clear about what will happen on that date, though some apparently believe it could be a polar reversal, where the north pole becomes the south and the sun rises in the west, triggering natural disasters around the world.

All righty, then.

Assuming the world doesn't end, we might want to eat more watermelon. Some unnamed scientists in Texas say that watermelons contain an ingredient called citrulline that can trigger production of a compound that helps relax the body's blood vessels, similar to what happens when a man takes Viagra.

True or not, it's sure to sell a few more watermelons. And we all like watermelon, don't we? We're going to eat it, anyway, so if it creates some natural fireworks, woo-hoo! Why not?

Today's TWISTED LINGUISTICS blasfomys:

bookoo - Crazy tome.

gratititude - Appreciation of mammary glands.

I'll bee looking - Hunting for honey.

quaterly newsletter - News you can use for ducks and other aquatic critters.

graditutude - In awe of graduation from ballet school.

I view 2012 as just the end of a cycle.

VE said...

It will be son will be eligible for his license!

Bilbo said...

Sorry, Serena, but I don't think anyone can do anything with those blasfomys today. I surely couldn't. In any case, I'm too busy eating watermelon. It can't hurt.

I wondered what the heck was going on out here. They are already preaching about the end of CA as we know it, dipping down into the ocean like a nacho going after some bad cheese whiz. Well. This is why I read your blog to get the news of what is really happening in my own area. Where are you? Half way across the continent?

puerileuwaite said...

Very well then. I am off to the watermelon patch to produce some Watermelon Patch Kids!

Serena Joy said...

Well, you have a point, Kan. December 2012 will mark the end of the cycle known as the year 2012.:-)

That COULD be a disaster, VE. Look out!:-)

Eat up, Bilbo. You're right; it can't hurt.:-)

You bet I'm halfway across the continent, CD. You didn't think I'd be in CA waiting for it to dip down into the ocean like a nacho going after some bad cheese whiz, did you? LOL!:-)

Puggy, will the Watermelon Patch Kids be bald and pie-faced and come with adoption papers? I want one!:-)

...And with watermelons, you don't need a prescription.

Serena Joy said...

This is true. Until the government gets wind of it.:)

G-Man said...

....Now the tune, "Watermelon Man" is going thru my head.
Thanks a lot Sherry...:P

FANCY said...

Watermelon..."ROFLOL" That I eat and get furious of all the black kernel...:)

Serena Joy said...

LOL, Galen. You're quite welcome.:-)

Try the seedless kind, Fancy; no little black kernels.:)
