All that angst over nothing.

I was going to use the Marvin the Martian line about the earth-shattering boom, but then I realized that I'd already done that particular joke in another context, so...this is more accurate anyway.

The talk with the ex went a lot better than I thought it would, and after discussing it with my daughter afterwards I've come to the conclusion that while the two of them may have talked quite a bit over the last four years I don't think either of them were listening too well. Which is about all I want to say about that. I'm not comfortable dragging family business out in the street, even if it's the virtual street, and doing it to the extent that I did it in yesterday's overwrought post is embarrassing enough.

As an unexpected bonus, I got back a sackful of books I'd been missing, a stack of records (yeah, the big vinyl things everybody used to listen to before CDs) that I didn't realize I was missing, and some photos from Germany and junior high school. Hard to believe I was ever that skinny.

That should be "ka-boom", if I recal my Warner Bros. correctly. (jk) Glad it went well.

You're probably right about that - I don't remember seeing the original (wasn't it Duck Dodgers In the 22 1/2 Century?) or if I did, it was decades ago.

24th and 1/2 century to be exact.

I believe it was actually a Bugs Bunny cartoon where the "Earth Shattering Ka-boom" was to take place. I think the Earth was blocking his view of Venus or something.

I know it wasn't to make room for a new Hyperspace Bypass. That was the Vogon constructor fleet in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams.
