This is beginning to chap my hiney – Blogger was broken last night and I couldn’t post any updates! In short:

For you Left Behind series addicts, a drinking game.

If you’ve ever gotten the Nigerian Scam Spam, you’ll enjoy these people, who scam the scammers. You can’t cheat an honest man!

My husband thinks that blogging is the height of hubris. He compares it with the people who are on those TLC shows like A Baby Story, A Dating Story, A Wedding Story, etc. He thinks that people who are on those shows are really full of themselves to think that anyone else is even remotely interested in their little stories.

I’ve tried explaining the blogging phenomenon to him, but he’s not convinced at all. Oh well. That means 2 things: 1) He’s missing out, and 2) I can write whatever the heck I want to about him. Ha!

This is one of the best wastes of time ever… it has the mindless je ne sais quoi of Am I Hot or Not?, but with a twist. Go pick what’s better.

Here’s a good essay on how to raise kids. It lacks the syrup of the Chicken Soup series, but has practical advice.

Here’s a good waste of time. In case you need some sort of sick self-validation, check out this semi-canonical “What X Are You?” quiz list.

Oh and by the way, the weather did change. A “cool” front blew through, which just means that it was 75 today instead of 85. Whoo.

This is cool – an online version of the Infocom game Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. For years my online handle has been “Trillian”. 16 years, in fact, ranging from GEnie and BBS systems to StrangeMUD now.

And for those of you who can’t get any in real life: boobs.

I added a guestbook, forum, and a counter to this page. Sorry about the spamvertising on the above-mentioned sites, but they’re free and low maintenence.

Wow, what a busy couple of days.

Last night I went to the Coronation in San Antonio. This is an event held during Fiesta Week, which is to honor the memories of the heroes of the Alamo and the Battle of San Jacinto. The Coronation is an intensely sparkly affair, involving 24 girls in heavily adorned and beaded dresses, pulling 10 foot long trains. The entire ensembles weigh between 50 and 100 pounds each. This year was absolutely amazing. My aunt was the Mistress of the Robes, who in effect is the producer – the theme was Africa and all the trains and dresses came from her vision. I helped research some of the stuff for her on the internet, and it was an honor to hear my research come out onstage.

The girls in the Coronation do what’s known as a full court bow, which means that they bow all the way down and scrape their noses on the floor. This is making a bow to society, and technically I suppose that it means you’re marriageable.

Then today my friend AM came over and we watched Trading Spaces and Sex and the City. You know, girly stuff. The babies had a blast playing together, I got to cook dinner (a rare occurence!), and it was good fun.

I’m sure I’ll have some fun links to post soon, but this is the first time I’ve sat at my computer all day!
