My Office Got 1,000,000% Awesomer This Weekend... (I Get Paid For Doing This)

...when I found THIS:

...which someone was just throwing away outside of Middle Daughter's apartment building! Can you believe it?

I call him "Edgar."

"Edgar" because Edgar Allan Poe wrote this:


Gaily bedight,
A gallant knight,
In sunshine and in shadow,
Had journeyed long,
Singing a song,
In search of Eldorado.

But he grew old-
This knight so bold-
And o'er his heart a shadow
Fell as he found
No spot of ground
That looked like Eldorado.

And, as his strength
Failed him at length,
He met a pilgrim shadow-
"Shadow," said he,
"Where can it be-
This land of Eldorado?"

"Over the Mountains
Of the Moon,
Down the Valley of the Shadow,
Ride, boldly ride,"
The shade replied-
"If you seek for Eldorado!"

That is awesome!
Except for the Canadian flag. You need to lose that.

How did you manage to move that thing into there? I think I'd paint it red and gold and call it Emma.

For any Gilmore Girls fans, looks like Henry ( or was it harry) Logan's Statue. Sorry I've been watching every morning for the past five months.

It was decided by my staff that Edgar would celebrate all holidays. Today is Canada Day, so Edgar is celebrating (in spirit) with the Canadians.


It's actually lighter than it looks. And you know how in times of emergencies people get extra strength? That's how.


I used to watch Gilmore Girls but not often enough to know that reference.

Oh, okay, well, that's all right then. I thought it was a part of him.
