Nah, nah, nah. I do it for love. Nothing else.
In any case, good morning and Happy Tuesday, gentle readers. Here's hoping your week is shaping up exactly the way it should, meaning that all is well and things are well under control. Not so much at the Z-House: I'm puttering this morning around this place, doing laundry, and trying to commit to a review for The Creator. If I'm lucky, then I'll have it up for you later today, so keep your eyes peeled.
Otherwise ... 98 different trivia citations. Wowza. Quite a big haul, if I do say so myself.
Also, I wanted to do a quick recap on the MainPage announcements from yesterday.
In Memoriam: Suzanne Somers (1946-2023)
In Memoriam: Piper Laurie (1932-2023)
In Memoriam: Mark Goddard (1936-2023)
As I've often stated, I kinda/sorta hate doing those type of announcements, but they're part and parcel of life, it would seem. Taking a moment to reflect on the people, places, and events who've touched the worlds of All Things Fantastic is the proper thing to do if for no better reason than to remind each of us that life is short, make the best of it, and stop to smell the roses when and if life gives you the chance. Each of us gets one ticket -- so far as we know -- and I encourage you to check out the scenery before it's all gone.
In the meantime, keep plugging away. Keep doing that which brings you joy and/or makes you greater than you were yesterday. There are those who say that life itself is a long-distance race, and I suppose that's true. What I don't like about the analogy is that it implies there's some trophy waiting at the finish -- as if we were all in competition with one another. Yes, yes, and yes: I realize that there are some who say that's true, but I like to think that we're all in this game together. It isn't so much whether or not you win ... but that you do play the game. Keep at it.
We're all winners.
As always, thanks for reading ... thanks for sharing ... thanks for being a fan ... and live long and prosper!
