Once in a Blue Moon

incredibly remiss
unrepentant
otherwise occupied

But...
I ran across this piece claiming that tonight's full moon is indeed a 'blue moon'. Not the second full moon in a month as everyone *knows*, but an extra month in a season. Supposedly, the monks didn't like years with 13 full moons because it messed up their festivals... unlucky, as it were.

Sounds good to me; it even makes sense. Just goes to show that we were more than capable of viral misinformation long before the internet piped up. The caveat, of course, being that I was interested enough to read the story and post this, but not to check the article's veracity.

Thanks I needed the good news. The health insurance for the missus and lad will run 800$/mth. However, the price is based on our bi-weekly pay scale and once in a blue moon, we will have an unencumbered paycheck. File that one under; be careful what you wish for.
Good to hear from you.
