A few thoughts.
Every Friday our garbage can is emptied. This Friday afternoon, I noticed it was mostly empty, but it had a small baggie in it. Someone, who had presumably been walking their dog, had scooped their dog poop and tossed their dog poop baggie in our trash can. I don't know why, but this irritated me. That's MY trashcan. Who gave you (unnamed dog walker) the authorization to put your dog excrement in my trash can? Lets agree to keep our trash separate, please.
Our house makes very unusual sounds when it's cold and windy. Currently it is 5 degrees below zero, the wind is blowing like crazy, and the wind chill is around -30. I can't explain what the house sounds like, but if I didn't know better I would tell you that there is a blind person upstairs walking in his sleep, bumping into shit and dropping stuff. Oh, and he has a pet robot who makes funny vibrating sounds.
My daughter has become exactly as goofy as I expected she would be. She says and does very unusual things, which is to be expected when you consider who her parents are. She dances to the sound of the coffee grinder, purposely mispronounces words in order to make you laugh, and displays obsessive-compulsive personality traits such as excessive arranging and toy washing. She also:
1) has a toy dog who for some unknown reason says "Whassup" to the other toys (to which the only logical response is "whassup, dog?")
2) uses the word "capable" in a sentence
3) does several "voices" for her toys, including a mean Eyeore impression and a very unusual voice that sounds like Cartman from South Park.
4) counts to 39 and can write her name
So anyway, she is on pace to be made fun of in school, and also be one of the smartest kids in class. Gee, why does that sound familiar?
Barack Obama is the man. Yes, I would vote for Hillary if she were the nominee, but as far as I'm concerned Barack Obama is the clear choice for democrats. The reason I say this is because I know so many republicans who already HATE Hillary Clinton. If there is one thing that will make Republicans rise up and unite, it would be to beat Hillary. So if you are a democrat, and you really want to win in November, support Obama!
