Quote of the (Fri)day

Friday already? What a quick seven days gone. Must be sure to savour the next few as we slowly tick-tock our way toward the grandest of Friday of 2006 next week. The last time St. Pat's was on a Friday was 2000, Gongshow and I eager youngters in Dublin. Where our mutual admiration for the black stuff first began. Can that really have been a full seven years ago?

Off to the first draw in awhile now, so wish us well. Will be wishing a hearty welcome back to Rum-and-Coke guru, Bill in Portland Maine, from afar. Already looking forward to next week's surely glorious posting.

Anyhow, waited most of the day for a quote to ring true, but none serendipidous appeared. Not enough sagacity. But it is Chuck Norris' 66th birthday today, so let's run one of those classics:
Chuck Norris does not sleep. He waits.
Ah, yes. For good things come to those who do. 7 more sleeps to go. Happy weekend to all.

UPDATE - Since the above barely qualifies as a quote, here's one further that just dropped into my lap. Marvelous Hemingway:
The age demanded that we sing
And cut away our tongue.

The age demanded that we flow
And hammered in the bung.

The age demanded that we dance
And jammed us into iron pants.

And in the end the age was handed
The sort of shit that it demanded.

The 1959 board, the more hilarious. The best part, the history, at the base:

"Questions on this game will be gladly answered if proper postage is enclosed."

Only against those who have never played, can you win from Africa.
