Reject #8

Title: Weekly Thank Yous
Date: January 22, 2010

I know there are really somber, desperate things going on in the world, but a snarky blogger can only held back for so long. There are some things that must be shared, whether or not LenoGate has run it's course.

To the elderly gentleman at the fabric store who was buying more brown fleece to add to his Snuggie because "the darn thing didn't come with a back!": Thank you for absolutely making my day. Add a hood and you can be Obi-Wan Kenobi for Halloween.

Thank you bumtrinket for being my new favorite word.

Is it bad to give your 19 month old a bottle of melted ice cream because you're out of milk and too lazy to go to the store? Thank you, parental ingenuity.

Here's a fun conversation, thanks to the public education system:
Mia: What are all those people doing?
Me: Protesting, because we're in a war.
Mia: We're in a war?
Me: Yes.
Mia: With Russia?
Me: No.
Mia: Were we ever in a war with Russia?
Me: Yes.
Mia: Oh yeah, and we won because of Martin Luther King Jr!

Notes: This one was just your typical random week in review that never got reviewed. From January 2010. I'm still not sure if it's worth reviewing, except that the old man at JoAnn's still makes me laugh.

It's always fun to read your blog. You make me laugh! Thanks for sharing.

I miss those protesters, rain or shine, every Saturday morning (if those are the ones to which you are referring). Even the two or three guys who show up to represent the "other side" for an hour or two before. Bless ALL their patriotic hearts.
