Did he not notice the minivan? 

I was driving to the Girl's school this morning for Meet the Teacher day. I'm sitting at a red light, in my minivan, putting on lipstick, when I hear a horn. I look over and the guy in the car next to me is motioning for me to roll down my window.

Now, I have to say, I must normally look pretty friendly, because people do tend to ask me for directions. So I figured that's why he wanted to talk to me.

I roll down my window and he leans out and says, "you've got some great looking lips". I almost laughed but managed to say thank you as the light turned green and I drove off.

Guess it's a good thing the Girl wasn't with me. She'd have asked if he had noticed her lips.

My value's rising! 

First it was A.K., and my level was low. Then it was HG, and now, my value is rising! I think I better thank Fluffy and Billy for raising the value of my incoming links.

The Girl's perspective 

Last Friday the Girl and I met a friend and her husband for lunch. We took the train down to Mockingbird Station where you have not just the rail station, but a theater, lofts, restaurants, and shopping. We took the elevator up from the platform level because the Girl loves to push the buttons and not take the slow escalator.

While we're on the elevator, the Girl looks down and notices the tiles have bird footprints drawn on them. She asks what birds were doing in there and I explained it's just decoration because it's Mockingbird Station. She said okay and I thought nothing more of it.

That night as the Aggie was getting her ready for bed, she told him we had taken the train to meet Liesl and Jon for lunch. She then proceeded to tell him about the elevator and the bird footprints. He asked if she knew why there were footprints. She said, of course, I do. It's because it's Walkingbird Station.

Dallas Morning News spoilsports! 

You would think I would have learned to be careful after Tavia's experience with Yahoo. But I blithely whipped onto the Dallas Morning News website to look up something. Plastered right there on the entrance page were the results for the women's all-around scheduled to be shown tonight.

I am SO not happy that they have ruined this for me. I hate that the Olympics have to be shown on tape delay anyway but you'd think major media outlets could think of the fans who want to experience it "live". Thankfully, the DMN at least has an easy way to lodge a complaint so I fired off a terse little missive to them. Maybe they'll think twice before spoiling my fun again.

Families should all be in the same political party 

I've decided this after seeing some political arguments between the Aggie's dad and his twin brother. And then the twin's son weighed in saying he was being censored on the family's group email and so he removed himself from the email group. That's right, I'm playing Big Brother and censoring all messages that I don't agree with! And, if you believe that, you'll believe I'm changing who's getting my vote.

Really, I try not to get to bent out of shape over politics because some of my fave people are liberal. They pretty much let me go my moderate way and try not to insult me too much. But when it comes to family, I guess people feel safer in blasting each other for their beliefs. And I don't get that, because, you'd think people would be nicer to the people they love, wouldn't you?

Anyway, that's my thought for the day. I think I'll go lay down the law to the Aggie's family now.

You know I'm kidding, right?

The Girl dancing with Daddy at the Wiggles. Posted by Hello


The Wiggles came to town this weekend and we attended a show. The Girl absolutely loves the Wiggles. We took her last year too but she got into the show more this year. She was up dancing in the aisles, brought a rose for Dorothy the Dinosaur, and generally had a marvelous time.

And why I agreed to buy cotton candy, I'll never know.
