I celebrated mine by driving across two states, and tonight the festivities will continue with a baronial meeting. But there’s AC now and the children were excellent all weekend, so things are good. I even managed 8 hours of sleep for two nights’ straight! Truly, it is a time of wonders.
Although that may just be a boy-kid thing.
Au contraire: I am absolutely living up to the ideals of this holiday. As a father myself I am perfectly allowed to say that FROZEN DREAMS is a wonderful Father’s Day gift. As for my own father; well, I have this sudden vision of him up in Heaven taking a drag off of his unfiltered Camel and yelling “BUY HIS BOOK, YOU RAT BASTARDS!” before he gets back to watching hockey*.
So there you go. I’m covered, either way.

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there. We currently don’t have anything scheduled right now, what with my wife’s sprained back (she has the Switch and a milk stout, so that’s all sorted out, at least) and the baronial meeting tonight. Honestly, though, the holiday’s all just part of a long-term scheme for the meat industry to sell more steaks or whatnot anyway.
Which is silly, I know. Make steak available, steak will be purchased. It is a law of the universe, or something.
I hope everyone had a good one. Me, we had pancakes and then my wife took the kids to the pool. and then the house was empty. It was peaceful. So very, very peaceful.
It’s a nice day for doing nothing. Or so I hear: I’ve been cleaning the house. I had my Father’s Day last weekend, you see. Beer and Japanese hibachi steak and the house to myself for a couple of days, so don’t feel bad for me.
Although, to be honest: this one is largely an afterthought in the American secular holiday calendar anyway. At least, I always feel like that… although a review of my previous pontificating on the subject suggests that tomorrow would have to go very, very badly indeed before it approached the Father’s Day 2011 Event. I dimly remember that Event*. I will remind myself of it tomorrow, should anything go awry.
*It’s deliberately hazy, though, which is a blessing.
…I’m off to the doctor. We think that this is pinkeye. Oh, well, it gets me out of the house.
Hope you either had a good one, or helped somebody else have a good one.
