Yup, it sure is. Now to figure out how to pull these blinds up so I can sunpuddle in it....

 Seriously, baby. You're not helping, being in my lap like this.

Faraday: The Taskmaster rejects your excuses! Now, get to workz!

Yes, Boss....

The Dread Feather Roberts

Did you hear about celebs remaking The Princess Bride to feed people during the COVID crisis? 
Maxwell decided to do his part....

Maxwell (as Inigo): Hello there! Slow going?
Dread Feather Toy: < climbing cliff >
Look, I don't mean to be rude, but this is not as easy as it looks, so I'd appreciate it if you wouldn't distract me.
Maxwell (as Inigo):  Sorry, dood.
(Hey Maxie, dood, that was off script. Maxwell: *calls out* LINE!)

Maxwell (as Inigo): I do not suppose you could speed things up?
Dread Feather Toy: If you're in such a hurry, you could lower a rope or a tree branch or find something useful to do.

Maxwell (as Inigo): I could do that, but I do not think you would accept my help, since I am only waiting around to kill you.
Dread Feather Toy: That does put a damper on our relationship.

Maxwell (as Inigo): I promise I will not kill you until you reach the top.

Dread Feather Toy: That's very comforting, but I'm afraid you'll just have to wait.

Maxwell (as Inigo): Who are you?
Dread Feather Toy:  No one of consequence.

Maxwell (as Inigo):  I must know.
Dread Feather Toy:  Get used to disappointment.

Maxwell (as Inigo):  Hello, my name is Maxico Montoya. You keel my feather. Prepare to die!

Hey, we never said he was a good actor....

Faraday: Okay then, who's up for a bottle rocket war?

Hey, we never said it was a good idea....
