Monday Meh, Riddle Edition

Q:  What's red & white and red & white...?

A: Me!

Intelliwench, here, with a severe case of BBQ thighs thanks to several hours spent yesterday on a relaxing float down the South Fork of the New (blissfully sans institute participants this time!). The outing was in celebration of the end of this summer's obligatory stint in charge of the overall well-being of 44 graduate students (ages 29 - 69) and the 7 faculty who taught them. This year's participants were a very self-sufficient bunch, much to my relief. Instead, it was the faculty, the facilities, and the Bluto-Blutarsky-wanna-be graduate assistant who challenged my patience and good humor, not to mention my psychic abilities -- things WILL go wrong, it's just a matter of knowing ahead of time how to most expediently address these "challenges" before the boss finds out and blows a fuse. 

Anyway, I'm taking today (mostly) off to sleep in, do laundry, redeem a massage gift certificate, and see if I remember how to blog. So far, so good. 

So, aside from the heat in my loins sunburned legs, today's not really so meh after all.


  1. I hope you enjoyed your day off in spite of the overheated loins... er, legs.
    You can have too much sun, not sure if you can have too much sunny disposition.

  2. Took a river cruise yesterday myself Intelli. Only it was overcast and rainy down here in Baja Georgia. Still and all, it's still a great way to dream away your troubles up a lazy river.

  3. Forgo the laundry - have a good time.
    the Ol'Buzzard

  4. Belated, but have a well-deserved NoMeh day...that is if you aren't still sleeping at this point.

  5. ... and a big round of applause for the heat in your loins.

    glad to hear that the time passed uneventfully and mostly meaningfully

    lovely to see that you can still blog.

  6. Thank you all. My laundry remains un-washed and my sunburn has all but faded away. I'm going to be brave and try wearing jeans today...

  7. I'm with Harlequin about the heat in your loins. I much prefer hangin' with someone with heat in the loins than sunburned legs.


And you thought...
