*I’d hate to be on a live TV show. Our local news people are experiencing technical difficulties right now. Here’s a snippet of what’s going on:

“We’re going to watch some video of a brawl on a baseball field. There were fists flying and everything. Okay, we’re not going to watch the fight. Just trust me, it was a fight. Now, we’ll go to the weather. It’s going to be a beautiful weekend for swimming….or anything else you want to do this weekend…..(looks to his left)….meteorology?”

This went on for a few minutes. They’ve now ended the broadcast. Yeah, I wouldn’t want that job.

*So, at one of the festivals that we went to last weekend (oh man, it was a week ago already! that flew…), this guy cracked himself up. Baldman and I were in line for funnel cake…..mmmmmmm, funnel cake….which was by far the longest line at the festival. Anyway, we were behind a guy who was in his mid-50’s, I’d guess. We were in front of two girls who were probably about 16. The two girls are both on their cell phones texting.

The guy looks at the girls and says, with a smirk, “You know, it would probably just be easier to talk to each other.”

And then he starts cracking up. I mean, like when you’re laughing and you just can’t stop til you’re crying and about to wet yourself cracking up. I don’t know if he wet himself. It was dark out there. But it was a good few dozen funnel cake sales later before he stopped.

I’ll just let you imagine the look the girls gave him. 😉

  • I’m no longer blogging at The 80’s Club. Not sure what will come of the site, but it’s still up for now. You know, if you can’t get enough of my ramblings here. I can also still bug you at Play Library. May have yet another new haunt from which to annoy you soon. Will let you know.
  • Updated my blogroll. Took some off because no one was writing on them. Added others. Divided them into mommy bloggers and others for what reason I’m not entirely sure. Not all the mommy bloggers talk strictly about motherhood. That’s all.
  • I know a lot of people with March birthdays. HB to one and all. Non-specific b/c none of you want your personal info out here, and I can respect that. So just pretend that one was specifically for you. Because it was. 😉
  • I’ll be back soon with a real post.

    No, we don’t live in the boonies. Yes, we are probably one of the last cable holdouts. No major reasons, just cheaper, and when would we find the time to watch anything anyway? Hmmm…I started this with a point…

    Ah, yes, we have 6 channels. Guess how many of them were showing the President’s speech tonight? 5. Yes, fully (Baldman?, thanks) eighty-(mumble)% of the available channels were broadcasting the speech. What did I think of it all?

    Well, NBC definitely had the prettiest presentation, but PBS was the simplest with only the logo in the corner. No need for fancy titles or flowing flags, just a logo and the speech.

    Ohhh….you wanted to know what I thought of the speech? Yeah, I knew you really didn’t. 😉

    Yeah, so it only took me 8 months to remember to complete my “About” page. You know, the one of those three links up at the top that was of relatively no value. So, if you just can’t get enough of me here, you can discover more drivel about me there. Enjoy.
