1) It has come to my attention that some of you think I’m a dude.  I am not.

2) It’s Earth Day and even as an avowed tree-hugger I have nothing I really want to comment on at this moment.

3) I have noticed searches like “spank boy with paddle” are bringing in traffic.  You guys creep me out sometimes, you know that?

4) I got a whole (angry-ish) write up on another blog about that Enron post, yet no one is leaving comments, so I assume they have nothing to say.  Thanks for the traffic?

5) I’ve been stewing over Rick Perry.  Someone needs to cheer me up.  Feel free to link me to something interesting in the comments.

EDIT:  6)  I have been cheered up.

    I had some thoughts but I also had no wish to call down the conservative thunder on my own little (generally non-political) blog.

    So don’t link your blog, goober. Want me to change your name and link to an alias? You can post under “The Donald” if you like and I will link it to the US Bankruptcy court website.

    Hahahahaha, no, that’s okay, I want to own what I say when I say it. I just pick my battles is all.

    Hahaha @ #3. Sorry I have no cheer.

    I did a post on corporal punishment in schools…it was a good one, but definitely draws in the fetish crowd. Almost typed capital punishment in schools…oops!

    “Someone needs to cheer me up.”

    Well, there’s this teacher who was trying to explain to her child about Easter … how Jesus died and came back to life, when she was abruptly interrupted by her 6 year old who said “You mean Jesus was a zombie?”

    There’s more to this but I’m saving it all for Tidbits and Considerations segment this weekend.

    That should at least make you grin though.

      Some little bastard told my kids today that the Easter Bunny and Santa aren’t real and that the “mommies are the ones who really give the stuff to the kids.”

      Caught off guard, my reply was, “Maybe he was so naughty that they weren’t going to bring him anything and his mommy had to go shopping for presents to he wouldn’t feel bad.”

      That’s wrong, isn’t it?

        Well kind of. How’s that affect your credibility down the road when he learns the truth anyway. 🙂

        But guess what, the mother of this 6 year essentially did the same thing with “Jesus, the zombie”. More later when I write my T&C bit.

        Knowing you were busting to hear the complete story on this – 😉 – I went ahead and published this piece by itself on another site I contribute to – So, here ’tis.

        Jesus the zombie?”

        Funny stuff.

        I’m not too worried about it – I don’t think little kids mind being lied to if there’s something in it for them. And as long as I don’t eat all the candy before tomorrow morning, we are good to go.

    OMG, the Amazon link. I wish I’d had that book when they were babies….

      I know! Except my 5yo has been up for HOURS for the last 3 weeks over a series of nightmares, so I may need to pick up a copy for him, too.

      He slept all night last night so I’m hoping that this episode is over now. Fingers crossed, throwing salt, knocking on wood!

    You’re not a dude? And why does no one hate *my* blog and go around the internetz complaining about it? I could use the traffic! 😉
