So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Insult to injury

I don't know what to blog about today. I'm tired, having awoken at 5 a.m. to do a scheduled a phone interview and the source wasn't there adding insult to injury. Now, I did call back about 5:45 a.m. and caught the guy, so I'm glad I didn't try to go back to sleep.

I'm still sort of weirded out about the whole non-intended blog war. I get myself into trouble like this all the time in the various facets of my life. I say something in passing and it comes back to totally bite me on the butt. I feel sort of bad for some of these uptight anonymous commenters. I really do. These gals are probably the same ones who elbow their husbands when they catch their heads turn at the sight of a hot blonde walking by. And, before you say anything, unless he's gay - he is looking. I'm sorry. I am a people-watcher and I see men do it all the time when their wives aren't looking. So, don't tell me your husband doesn't do it. He does. He may just be slick enough that you don't catch him. I don't see it as disrespect. It is a healthy appreciation for beauty and it is the way people are wired. Sorry, got off on a tangent there from lack of sleep.

I have to go to the dentist this morning. I will have my first (and hopefully last) root canal. I'll also have some fillings, too. I guess I shouldn't be surprised after not seeing a dentist for almost four years. We haven't had dental insurance in that span of time. I got it again with this job, so we're taking full advantage of that benefit. We sucked it up to take the children to the dentist, but let ourselves go without it. It will suck, but I guess it will protect my teeth. I'll try not to wait another four years for a return visit.

Been too busy to read all the blogs I like to read, but sneaked over to Wil Wheaton's blog and found this interesting tidbit about the Lake Woebegone writer suing some conservative Minnesotan bloggers for using his image on a shirt. Now, Wil is a political lefty, but he even thinks it is bad form. Protected speech and all.

and, just for fun, from Wil's blog. I missed this Family Guy episode.

For those of you who don't like me, take pleasure in knowing I'll be in the dentist's chair shortly.

    Root canal

    Perhaps the ugliest words in English that don't include an obscenity or vulgarity.

    *pats AoM's hand* I'm with you, hon.

    And, take hope in the fact that the cotillion trolls will likely get bored and run off soon to sip tea and discuss what color to paint their toenails this week.

    One of the anonymous Cotillion gals here, I am a hot blonde, natural blonde even. Of course men look, you would have to be retarded to think the opposite. There are probably things that I missed but I do hope that this is dropped soon, no reason for animostity when we really are on the same side. I don't paint my nails, I don't sip tea, as a matter of fact I'm not very feminine. I have three sons and live my life from the male perspective, which sucks upon occassion. Good luck with your root canal, I've had two and they didn't bother me in the slightest; but then again, I'm a tough bitch.

    Anon - thanks for the good wishes with my root canal. I was fortunate that it went well and I'm doing nicely. Thanks. And, I agree that I'd like to see it dropped. I also agree that we're on the same side of things, too. Unfortunately, there are some others who can't seem to let it go. I just find it unfortunate that I ever blogged about my disappointment in not getting a returned email. That seems to have started all of this and it is a mountain that should have only been a molehill.
