The Day of the Dude!
Monday, March 6th, 2017 ~ Takin’ it Easy
“We revel in the laxness of the path we take.” ― Charles Baudelaire
Well, it’s just after noon on Monday… okay now it’s two o’clock…
HAPPY DAY OF THE DUDE!
March 6th is the anniversary of “The Big Lebowski” 1998 release.
We celebrate the annual sacred High Holiday of Dudeism as “The Day of the Dude”
Let me remember things I love/Stoppin’ at the log where catfish bite,
Walkin’ along the river road at night,/Barefoot girls dancin’ in the moonlight
“To a lazy man every day is a holiday.” – Turkish Proverb
"And I'm talkin' about the Dude here: sometimes there's a man who, well, he's the man for his time'n place, he fits right in there--and that's the Dude, in Los Angeles."
“The lazier a man is, the more he plans to do tomorrow.” – Norwegian Proverb
Well, we fed the dogs and went back to sleep for an hour, and we had Brunch, and we wrote this Blog, and “The Big Lebowski” is on TV now so we’re watching it, and now it’s 3:30pm….
“Uh, I am not Mr. Lebowski. You’re Mr. Lebowski.
I’m the Dude. So that’s what you call me.
You know uh that or uh his Dudeness or uh Duder or uh El Duderino…
if you know you’re not into the whole brevity thing.” – The Dude
We are an Ordained Dudeist Priest of The Church of The Latter-Day Dude.
(And we are available for weddings, parties and other occasions)
NOTE: There are some states and counties that are very undude. First check with the County Clerk where the ceremony is to be performed to confirm or disconfirm whether Dudeist ceremonies are cool and legal.
“I’m lazy. But it’s the lazy people who invented the wheel
and the bicycle because they didn’t like walking or carrying things.”
– Lech Walesa
“Yeah man, well you know, the Dude Abides.” – The Dude
THE STRANGER: "The Dude Abides... I don't know about you, but I take comfort in that. It's good knowin' he's out there, the Dude, takin' her easy for all us sinners."
We were going to do shtuff, but tomorrow is another day.
Today is The Day of The Dude. And it’s 4:20…
“Far from idleness being the root of all evil,
it is rather the only true good.” – Kierkegaard
Time for a “caucasian”: (see more “Fun Cocktail Recipes” in the sidebar>>>)
I can hear the bull frog callin’ me/Wonder if my rope’s still hangin’ to the tree
Love to kick my feet way down the shallow water,
Shoe fly, dragon fly, get back t your mother
Pick up a flat rock, skip it across Green River
“Progress isn’t made by early risers.
It’s made by lazy men trying to find easier ways to do something.”
― Robert A. Heinlein
“Good luck tomorrow.” – “Good things come to those who wait.”
Up at Cody’s camp I spent my days, oh,/With flat car riders and cross-tie walkers
Old Cody, Junior took me over,/Said, you’re gonna find the world is smouldrin’
An’ if you get lost come on home to Green River/Well, come home
Come join the slowest-growing religion in the world, Dudeism.
An ancient philosophy that preaches non-preachiness, practices as little as possible, and above all, uh…lost my train of thought there.
Anyway, if you’d like to find peace on earth and goodwill, man, we’ll help you get started.
Right after a little nap.
