Summer Holiday

It’s that time of year again where I burrow dead into the ground an aestivate to avoid sunlight. I’ll be back in a month or so. If you can’t wait that long I’ll still be posting on UkeToob and Tumblr.

If you’re looking for a summer project here are some lessons for you:

    Don’t the English slip into the shade and
    sip their lemonade, Al?

    Enjoy and make the most of it. Not traveling off to some hawaiian island are you?

    Chris: God, no! I really am aestivating.

    Will you play ukulele during your aestivation?

    Aestivation or √¶stivation (from Latin: aestas, summer, but also spelled “estivation” in American English) is a state of animal dormancy, similar to hibernation, characterized by inactivity and a lowered metabolic rate, that is entered in response to high temperatures and arid conditions.

    Have fun!
