too slow to keep up
I keep remembering that I still need to post my blog long about 1:00 a.m. So, I tell myself firmly, so you'll catch up tomorrow. You'll remember early in the day, and write something incredibly witty and amusing. Usually I just don't remember again. However, when I do remember, I can't accomplish the rest of the plan, "something incredibly witty and amusing". I'd love to say I'm so busy, so in demand, I just don't have time for "airy persiflage". Nah, sometimes I just ain't funny, folks.

Speaking of funny, that line from Rocky and Bullwinkle, spoken by Bullwinkle (I know, spoken by an actor) is one of the best I've ever heard, and far and away the best in a children's show. "...but enough of this airy persiflage." he says, without defining anything, prompting children everywhere to reach for the dictionary, or at least ask somebody. I'm pretty sure that would be impossible today, after all how do you abbreviate 'persiflage' so it'll fit in a tweet?
