How Was Your Earth Day?

Just wanted to make sure the Earth Day Manatee made it to everyone's home and left them several Earth Day type-gifts on your moss-covered Earth Day-decorated hearths and mantles (with hanging sandals, of course) under your Earth Day flower or Earth Day tree. If you didn't receive anything, it probably never came to your attention that April 22 was Earth Day, which is really too bad.

I got a rock.

Anyone do better?

Man!

I forgot to ride my bike down to a park, hug a tree and eat some grape-nuts in honor of this 'holy' day. My bad.

We celebrated a belated-Easter with my parents, since they were in Ohio during the real one. Does that count for anything?

Rich,

BTW, what is a 'Schmoo'?

Doug,

I'm sending you a year's supply of free granola oats for being the first to respond to this post.

As to your second comment, did I leave the word "Schmoo" somewhere or is that just a question you wanted me to answer from the REALMS of encyclopediac knowledge I possess? If that's all you're looking for, then SCHMOO is an acronym for:

Space Cargo Handler and Manipulator for Orbital Operations.

Other than that, I can make up a definition for it's meaning from this point onward, but I'm not sure how many people will go by that. I'm more than happy to do it, though. Let me know.

Rich,

Your sidebar says that you are 'Schmoo OTW'.

Rich said...

Oh. Well, Ken did that. Henceforth, then, the definition of "Schmoo" shall be:

Stud of all studs.

Does that suit you, Doug? I guess it suited Ken.

LOL.

At some point I did know it was earth day. I doubt that will make me schmoo-worthy though.

Rich said...

Y'know, it's come to my attention that we're misspelling "Schmoo" in these comments.

The way Ken has it is: "Shmoo."

However it's spelled, it has the same meaning if I'm Shmoo of the Week.

That's the way he spelled it in IV too.
