There, the first part is out of the way. There's today's random ten. No time to install the tunes on the music widget though, got to get moving. Yes sir. Today's the penultimate day of this week's work week, and it's gone fast. Tomorrow is shaping up as a 17 hour day; the first 8 at my regular job and then the rest at what looks like might be a very interesting side job that I probably won't be able to discuss here. I've got another training gig lined up for July, and the house looks like a tree full of monkeys as we plan for our big July 5th shindig.

The heightened vigilance that the discovery of the Chicago River alligator caused will not be short-lived. No. As I said before there have been some scary developments in the conflict known as World War G. I have some important gator stories in the pipeline and I promise I'll get them to you soon.

In the meantime, alert reader Katie Schwartz sent this story my way:

So, a crocodile walks into a bar...

Australians are just as good as American rednecks. What better way to deal with a marauding crocodile than to turn it into a bar mascot?

Remember a couple weeks ago I suggested posting some random spam on Friday along with your random ten? Consistency is not my strongest virtue, so I didn't do it last week. I forgot, ok? Still, I think it's a worthwhile idea, so here's this week's entry:

I sense the smallness in you, come over to the large side now.
I don't know about you, but I get kind of unnerved when random spam seems able to sense my insecurity.

I think it's probably a universal insecurity. And I'm sure it most certainly does not apply to you!

Have you seen a therapist about this gator fixation?? Or is this the result of a childhood gator trauma??

My insecurities could beat up YOUR insecurities anytime, anywhere.

What's on the menu for your 4th of July? Something delicious, no doubt.

Uh oh, looks like Bubs is going undercover!

GKL, as it turned out it was no big deal. I had been told I was going to be working door security for an Obama appearance/fundraiser at a private residence in Chicago. Turns out it was just door security for a party at a very, very wealthy person's house.

Kirby, here's the tentative menu:

Pulled pork (I'm slow-cooking it for about 10 hours with hickory)

Beef brisket (same thing)

MizBubs is making cole slaw with fennel, chilled green bean and chickpea salad with fresh herbs, and potato salad. She's also making white and red sangria.

We haven't decided on sweets yet.

Mnmom, I'm obsessed with a more than a few things, gators are just one of them. And I'll respectfully disagree--my insecurities can hold their own against anyone else's.

Barbara, you're very kind.
