Bonus: Pieter-Jan Belder - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: 12 Variations on "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star", KV 256. Okay, the tune is listed as "Ah, Vous Dirai-Je, Maman", but "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" is one of several sets of English lyrics that use the same melody.




What does "rolls a hoover" mean, anyway?

"Roll a hoover" was coined by Christopher Locke, aka RageBoy (not worksafe). He enumerated some Hooverian Principles, but that might not be too helpful. My interpretation is that rolling a hoover means doing something that you know is stupid without any clear sense of what the outcome will be, just to see what will happen. In my case, I quit my job in an uncertain economy to try to start a business. I'm still not sure how that will work out.
