Time flies like a dragon, and the PhD thingie is coming along nicely. (At least I hope so.) Ordered even more books from abebooks today (this time about Kenneth Grahame).
As I’ve nothing more amusing to say, I leave you with my favourite song from the 1948 musical THE PIRATE, starring Gene Kelly and Judy Garland. “Some day he will swoop down on me like a chickenhawk and carry me off.” It doesn’t get any better than that! *g*
Isn’t Gene Kelly hot? And these arms — oh my! (nom-nom-nom)
#1: You can sit the whole day on the couch, suffering picturesquely, and don’t have to feel bad about not getting any work done.
#2: You can sit the whole day on the couch, suffering picturesquely, and don’t have to feel bad about not getting any work done because you’re having a Gene Kelly Day (and as we learnt from Monday’s post, Gene Kelly is good for the Muse. Toh-TAH-ly!).
Yes, indeed, we do! Even if we don’t model our heroes on the aforementioned visual inspiration, the Muse still needs the nourishment. Toh-TAH-ly.
Isn’t that a great excuse to watch old MGM musicals, specifically those featuring Gene Kelly?
Wonderful, even. 🙂
Besides, if you’re not into crime and mysteries, our TV programme (CSI: Miami, CSI: New York, Navy CIS, Cold Case, Without a Trace, Medium, Ghost Whisperer, plus several German detective series) is uninspiring in the extreme. Not to talk about majorly depressing. By contrast, those old musicals are wonderful, feel-good entertainment, and you can count on them bringing a smile on your face.
And there is Gene Kelly, of course. Have I already mentioned Gene Kelly? *g*
