Z is for...Hindenburg.

I want to say Whoo! But for some reason I don't feel like its appropriate. In fact I feel like I'm limping slowly across the finish line. Like my right leg went to sleep a couple miles back and I've had to crawl along caring a bunch of dead weight.

A-Z brought me one very important, and much celebrated first (well will be celebrated), of breaking 100 followers!

I'll probably feel like celebrating once I'm not exhausted, and I really cant blame the blog hop for that. Cause lets be honest. I have a cold. But I'll save my reflections, and perhaps energy for the May 7th day of reflections, and rejoice in my return to twice a week posts (Sat and Wed).

I hope most of you caught on to my semi theme-less theme of word association. And while I was raking my brain for a word to associate Z with, a song came traipsing through my memory.

You see, back when I was in college, studying history, I had an anthem. It wasn't one of those great rock anthems, it certainly wasn't memorable, it probably wasn't anything you would ever even hear on regular radio. In fact, I'd go out on a limb and say it's pretty bad music. However it is ironic, and funny.

The song was called, History is made by stupid people, by the Arrogant Worms.

And one of my best friends from college will occasionally say to me, in passing, or on facebook, or in a text message, a simple line, that will have me laughing for a while, or quoting the song.

The line is simple "The Hindenburg was a giant zeplin." Cause one of the parts of the song is:

The Hindenburg was a giant zeplin/ It's makers made a minor over-site/before they filled it up with explosive gas/they should've fixed the no smoking light. 

Look forward to seeing you all on Wednesday!


  1. Nice theme song. I tried to imagine you entering a wrestling ring with that as your intro music, Nothing doing.

  2. You were the first Zeplin today! Congrats on limping over the finish line. And Woohoo on 100 followers. Big blog milestones for you today! :)

  3. Pretty bad music? Try again.

  4. great picture of the hindenburg...

  5. Congratulations on the 100! Now take some vitamin C and get some rest. :)
