Hello Hello, All! And gooooooooddddbbbbbyyyyeeee August!

Wake me up when August ends. I’ll be back then.

Later, TAY!



Okay! I’m here.

...and it’s still August.

At the very least, the dreaded August is almost at an end. Do you guys love August? What’s to love about the most boring month of the year!? It’s hot, dull and it’s a dragged out tease to the better times of the Autumn months and the Holiday Season.


As a wise man once said on the Internet: It was a demonfart of an August afternoon...

Mhm. I wish I could link to that quote but I’ve already lost it to the dog days recesses of my mind. It’s a quote though that sums up August perfectly.

Poor August. It’s true that you allow for a continuation of Summer adventures, walks in the city at night (as above), with much more activity on the streets from happy peeps. That’s a joy that should never be taken for granted.

It’s also true that in recent years, I’ve been taking a closer look at July as it is in fact, hotter than you are (over here where I am)... so July has been pushing me to consider it as the most terrible month instead. But August, that’s just a passing thought I may have at times. You shouldn’t worry. You may always be the number 1 month at being the worst.


Though... today is National Burger Day — the most revered of days even if a Chero doesn’t realize it yet, and I did partake of a beast of a kobe burger last week, complete with branding. Still August today, and it was still August last week when I had it...

Crud, August! Stop trying to be cool all of a sudden!!! Oh! Oh. It’s National Burger Day in the UK. Of course. You are still terrible, August. As long as I’m here. In the US.

For Today’s Suggested Topic(s):

  • Rank the months of the year from worst to best! With Reasons if You so feel like it.
  • What’s your favourite month, and why?
  • What’s your least favourite month, and why?
  • It’s National Burger Day (in the UK). We’ve discussed this before but tell us about your perfect burger again if you’d like to just pay tribute to burgers of all types. Because burgers are dabes all the time, everywhere. A shrimp burger sounds like a good time right now...

As always, feel free to Talk Amongst Yourselves if ain’t nobody got time for pondering for over months! It is the Open Forum, after all. Don’t forget that the IRC Channel is always around for you to carry out discussions as well. If you wanted to give an admin, author, and/or friend a shout: You can find them on the DirecTAYry.

I need everything after...

Those Dog Days

Dun goofed...
