Annual Penguin Hiatus

Post by opusthepenguin »

After tonight I disappear for my annual Lenten hiatus. I plan to be back on Monday, April 5 with several more weeks of stunt-hosting to endure. It looks as though I will miss Dr. "Meh" Met Oz, so that's a plus. But I'll also miss Mike Richards who, as I understand it, is the other person being considered for the host job. My feeling in advance of the facts is that he won't be better than Ken. And if he's just as good, that means Ken is better. It looks like I won't miss Mayim Bialik, which is good. I'm looking forward to her two weeks.

For those who will miss me, I'll be back before you know it. For those who won't, enjoy your 6 1/2 weeks of glorious fresh air.

Hmmm.... I’d have thought that 2020-2021 was Lenten enough, but you do you. I did have a recent chuckle in an Online Quiz League match at question that began “What animal, of family Spheniscidae, is the mascot for the Linux OS?” It wasn’t my question but I’d have responded “you had me at Spheniscidae” :mrgreen:

:lol: I'm always amused by how dirty that classification sounds.

As to 2020-2021 being Lenten enough, the missus and I had the same thought! But we still feel inclined to take advantage of this season to redirect and recalibrate.

Always remember and never forget: whatever you give up for Lent, you can still partake in on Sundays in Lent
I'd rather cuddle then have sex. If you're into grammar, you'll understand.

I guess I’ll have to wait until Easter Monday for a response but had opus ever traveled to Australia 🇦🇺 or Antarctica 🇦🇶 to see penguins? Worth every penny!
