Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)

Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.

This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

A little-known fact is that the Axis of Weevil Thursday Three can be balanced on end during the vernal equinox!

A better-known fact is that it is exceedingly difficult to come up with three questions every week! BUT, since we have launched out on a Springy theme, answer me these questions (even if you’re on the underside of the globe and are headed toward autumn)--

1) What is the one thing that you love MOST about Spring?

2) ASIDE FROM POLLEN AND TORNADOES, what is the one thing that you love LEAST about Spring?

3) Name your single most favorite song, movie, play, book, painting, sculpture, etc., etc., with “spring” as part of the title.

NOW THEN, all of you gambol off into the sunny bright breeziness of the season and either leave your answers in the comments below, OR leave a link to your blog so we can all see what you have to say.

As for me (because it is all about me)--

1) Dogwoods. There are other trees and plants that bloom earlier, and are bigger, and showier, but there is something about dogwoods that I really enjoy. Especially the old and gnarly wild ones up in the woods. And they don’t bloom until it’s REALLY springtime, unlike some of those that get all revved up then get frostbit.

2) I don’t particularly like the sudden increase in things on the honey-do list. Life is crammed full enough as it is without the added burden of recreating the Japanese Imperial Palace in the backyard.

3) Jeanne Crain singing “It Might As Well Be Spring” (scroll down to the soundtrack samples) in the movie State Fair. I love the movie, and love the song, although, in fairness, it was dubbed by Louanne Hogan. (And lest I neglect saying it--Rrrowl.)

So, there you go!
