oh, sexy internet...



Is that a hastily constructed, not to scale model of the Washington Monument in my garage, or are you just happy to see me?

Ah, yes, friends, in the grand tradition of the balloon-powered vehicle and the giant soul-sucking, holiday weekend killing Jamaica project, tonight, we here at the House that Procrastination Built are putting the finishing touches on a project due tomorrow in my third grader's class. A project we didn't start on until last night...at 9:30 p.m., after a Little League baseball game. A project everyone here has known about because I've spent the past two weeks since it was assigned saying things like, "Hey, we should really work on that monument project!" and "Are you sure you wouldn't want to switch your project to the Lincoln Memorial? Because time's a'ticking and we already painstakingly built that monument five years ago, the last time this project rolled around, and I've been saving it in the basement for a day just like this!"

Thank goodness the end of the school year is in sight because this? This model - which is clearly slivered for your pleasure - is the closest thing anyone around here is coming to a good time tonight or any night in the foreseeable future.

I prefer my monuments ribbed for pleasure.

If you are going to post pictures like that, you better put up one of those adult warnings.

And if I were to suggest landscaping the base with bushes, would that be too crude?

To quote a very obscure song by Melanie, from back in the early 70s (which were really the late 60s, but that's a different matter) (to the tune of The Battle Hymn of the Republic) -

"A thing's a phallic symbol
If it's longer than it's wide. . .
And the id goes marching on. . ."


Did you need a cigarette after you finished?

It's such a comfort knowing that I can always turn to your blog for sophisticated humor - and the, uh, architecture.

Well. One little boy is about to become Teacher's Pet. So much for the other little suckers bringing lame-ass apples.

At least you didn't have to do the White House... The pillars alone would take hours.

The head looks detachable, like you could switch it out for other models.

That is one awesome monument! To what I'm a little confused about.

As my bloggy recalcitrant streak passes from days to weeks, I decide "You know what might get me going? A visit to FADKOG. It's been far too long since I went over there anyway. And her talent often inspires me."

Then, I'm greeted with this.

I LOVE the internet.

And, I said "too long."
