Von Steuben Day

Today marks NYC's Von Steuben day celebration, and the German/American Unity Day outdoor beer bash in Central Park's Sheep Meadow. I should be quaffing big boots of beer under a tent while listening to polka (the ultimate thrash music- celebrating substance abuse and involving wild dancing by d00ds in leather pants). Alas, I have to work today (as Oscar Wilde said, "Work is the curse of the drinking classes."), so I won't be guzzling wiesbier by the half-liter.

Oh, well, at least there's music, like this ditty from Die Toten Hosen. This number is a spoof of the children's classic Zehn Kleine Raupenkinder:





This coming month is going to be an extremely busy one for me. I'll try to maintain a decent posting schedule, but my posts may be short- {snagglepuss} perfunctory, even {/snagglepuss}.

We'll see...
