krazy koati

It's the next best thing to be

So I realized I could use a little more income, at least for a couple of months. My first instinct naturally was to set a little money trap on the lawn, but our pet rabbit said I looked like an idiot holding a string tied to a stick that propped open a little box and that anyway I didn't even know how to bait a money trap. I thought seat cushions would do it for sure, but all I did get were the peanut sprinkles from the tops of doughnuts. This lead me to the alternative route of consulting.

The rest is, as to be expected, over on the humor blog. Other bits from the past week include:

Trivia: The Ferris Wheel at Chicago's Columbian Exposition had its inaugural public run on Wednesday, 21 June, 1893, while the Iowa State Marching Band --- a 40-piece band fit in one of the cars --- played ``America''.
