3. announcing, "No half measures!" and seeing who around you even knows what the hell that means

Five Things that Don't Suck, Lazy Sunday Edition

1. Calvin and Hobbes
2. Bloom County
3. reading the old-fashioned comics that showed up in the Sunday paper at the beach house*
4. blueberry bread**
5. Funky Winkerbean***

*Beetle Bailey, anyone? The Wizard of Id? The Amazing Spider-Man? (Why did we even read that one? It's not like anything even happened in it, not if you could only read a couple of them and then not see the strip again for months at a time.)
**I'd say "freshly baked blueberry bread" here, but I made it yesterday, and I'd argue that the advantage to day-old blueberry bread is that you don't have to wait for it to bake.
***would normally be included under #3 above, but come on. "Funky Winkerbean?" Sign me up.
