I Need a Nap

"I’ve suffered for my art, now it's your turn"
- Neil Innes

Currently recovering from S’s rollicking birthday party last night (and the prolonged after-party after the kids fell asleep), but as Mona’s Weekly Word is “art,” I thought I’d throw this quote out there from Neil Innes, former Bonzo Dog Band member, as well as an occasional member of the Monty Python crew. His great claim to fame was playing the John Lennon role (Ron Nasty) in the brilliant, pitch-perfect Beatles parody, All You Need Is Cash, starring the pre-fab four, the Rutles.

See you next week.

This is not a Nazi.

Much fun was had. And I wasn't even a Hungover Mother the next morning. Not even an Inert Houseguest. Though I think you were up before I was. How the hell did THAT happen?

E., that is indeed not a Nazi. It's a parody of Yoko Ono. Whim you've never heard of, because you such a young whelp. Kids today. Sigh.

We had fun too, Nance. And we found the iron! Thanks for taking care of my Dickel (are we tired of that joke yet?)(nope.).

Is the opposite of inert "ert"?

Err. No. I've heard of Yoko. I was making a jab at high-falutin' art. "This is Not a Pipe."

Wait...didn't Neil Innis do music for Monty Python movies as well, or at least play a tamborine or something whilst following Brave Sir Robin through the forest?
