While catching up on blogs this morning, I read over at the Blog of Funk that Kurt Vonnegut has died. For the longest time, Stephen King was my favorite author until I discovered Vonnegut. Thanks, Deek. I'm glad I heard it from you first.
If you go to Vonnegut's official site, take in the graphic and say a little prayer. Vonnegut was less than fond of organized religion and held a healthy skepticism when it came to all things religious. I think everyone's prayers for his lovely soul will put a smile on his face as he stands next to God listening to all of God's "I told you so"s.
I took a day off of work today to get myself packed and together for a week at the beach. I got up at 8:00 a.m. (a painfully early hour of the morning for me) in an attempt to get a jumpstart on my to-do list.
I told myself, "Don't sit at the computer. Don't sit at the computer." Then, I told myself, "You have to check on your blog friends one last time before you're without computer access for a week."
The second voice won and here I sit two hours later. I am now walking away from the computer and vow to not sit here again until after lunch time and then one last time right before I go to bed. After that, you'll hear from me in about seven days or so.
Have a great week everybody but mine will be better.
I have nothing to say about Vaseline. I just wanted you to read the whole post.
PEACE OUT AND MR. VONNEGUT R.I.P.
