Here's a Smack in the Face

I was all excited the other day when I Googled my name and saw it on the front page. You see, just a few years ago I Googled my name and was met with information about a FBI agent with the same name. Now, it's my name on the front page. So I start explaining this to my husband thinking he'll be all impressed. Only I'm the one who gets shell shocked. Here's how it went down.

Me: I Googled my name today and discovered that I'm on the front page. The entire front page is all about my book and my writing career. Do you know what that means?

Him: Ummm, that you're an internet whore?

Yep, there it is folks. I'm an internet whore. How's that for support?

Time to come out of "retirement" and vent

I've decided that I need a place to vent and show off the silly stuff I find. So I'm officially starting this blog over. Check back often or become a follower so you don't miss a moment.

Obama signs note for girl's school

I hope by now every one has heard about the man who took his 17 yr old daughter to see the president speak. He joked that he hoped she didn't get in trouble and Obama asked if she needed a note. The President then proceeded to write one for her.

This is cute and all and pretty cool for the girl.

Here's my gripe: She very well could have gotten in trouble or at least had an unexcused absence because of the limitations put on students in the public school system!!! I'm sorry, I think that her experienc was much more important than a day in a stuffy classroom! Since when did allowing your kids experience once-in-a-lifetime opportunities become a hinderance to their education? Oh, wait, that's right, the school doesn't GET PAID if the student isn't there. I forgot, stupid me, the almighty dollar is MUCH MORE IMPORTANT than a child's memorable experiences.

Silly me. (Read extreme sarcasm here)

Just hanging out in the middle of the ocean

So maybe he wasn't in the middle of the ocean, but the 30 something year old man claims he fell overboard. Off a cruise ship. AND no one noticed. (No one on that ship had been reported missing.

Here's the story.

I'm curious as to how someone falls over the tall railing by accident. Hey dude, what were you doing up on the railing? And who are you that no one gives a rat's ass what happened to you? You're missing for several days and no one says, "Hey where's Bob?"

I get it. You're never in the same bed twice? Or maybe you stay so freakin' drunk that no one, not even you, is sure how you got whereever you are?

Hmmmm, the whole story sounds messed up to me. Start talking dude.

Man arrested for clearing pothole

You're kidding right? Here's the whole story. But to shorten it all up, the 81 year old man decided he would help out the city and clear out the pothole of debris so that it could get filled. Between you and me, he probably hoped that cleaning it out would help speed the process along.

So now there's a harmless old man behind bars and there are murderers and rapists running amok. Free to strike again. Doesn't the government have a better way to spend it's time? I mean, slap a fine on him (if you must) and send the man home. Oh yeah, and FIX THE FREAKIN' HOLE!

Let's Skip The Holidays

Everyone is all up in a tizzy about the economy. Yet this year, just like all the others, we are buying up stuff we can't afford, for people that we don't really like, only to bounce from house to house with screaming kids and annoying family members and dragging more useless stuff back to our already over crowded homes.

I mean have you been inside a Walmart, Toys R Us, or Target? There are carts filled to the brim. I'm sure that the credit card companies are loving it. And then come January we moan and groan and swear to never do it again. Next year will be different. Next year we'll concentrate on the true meaning behind the holidays. Mmmm-hmmmm. Sure. We said that last year and the year before. (Definition of Insanity: doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results)

So come on, who's with me? I say we skip the holidays and just stay home. The kids can play with whatever toy that they were lucky enough to get and mom and dad can stay in the warm house without dragging anyone kicking and screaming into the car.
