"Cranium blowout!" - the Undertaker, from the movie "Braindead"

As I recover from five days of houseguests (read: lie on the living room floor, letting the children rot their impressionable young brains with Diego and the Wonderpets, slurping down cup after cup of caffeinated beverages, pretending I am NOT brain-dead...), I rouse myself from my stupor to point out that tomorrow, August 22, is the day when the Mama Lama Ding Dong Virtual Book Tour makes its stop here at Behind the Stove. Gina and I are excited and honored to host Ayun Halliday, for the UK release of her classic (well, if it's not, it SHOULD be!) The Big Rumpus, fetchingly renamed Mama Lama Ding Dong for those clever Brits.

Oh, and August 22 is also my little brother's birthday. Just, you know, so you know...

So - my adorable little brother AND Ayun, both here at Behind the Stove tomorrow, August 22! As my mother used to ask, what more do you want, egg in your beer?

And, no, I haven't got the foggiest goddamn idea what the hell she was talking about, so don't ask.

It sounds like tomorrow will be a red letter day!

And I don't know where that expression comes from either.

I would not have known what that meant either.
Funny though.
