You Know How the Swivel War Kept Going Back and Forth?



Another lovely day winds to a close. Wait a minute... did I just say "lovely"? Hmm...

Today was mostly about getting ready for BE2 class tonight. Read two books and finished up the labs (which consisted mostly of looking up a butt-load of verses in Psalms). I did finish gathering newsletter content and editing it as well. Plus, I worked on the next comic - though it's not done yet, sorry...

The three-year-old has a new trick. She makes up words, and then proudly proclaims that she is speaking Spanish. She'll even translate the words for you, if you want. She's a smart one, that kid. Plus, I'm sorry, I can't help this next part... I'll be sitting in my office, door open, minding my own business, when in the background I'll here a **S-S-SMACK!**!!! Followed by my 13-year-old squealing and shouting "Ouch! Maggie, that hurt!!!! M-o-o-o-m!!!!" Then Maggie will run in giggling. I can't help it - it makes me laugh every time. It's hard to pretend I'm angry and scold her when it's all I can do to suppress a smile. The idea of a 3-year-old owning someone 10 years older than her is just too funny to me. 

*SMACK!* Reminds me of Carl...

Got a shocker this morning. I checked my email and had several emails from paypal for online purchases I didn't make! Yay! Someone hacked into my account and was charging stuff to my credit card! Yay! Spent some time on the phone with paypal straightening it out. They have a 100% fraud protection guarantee, so it is being handled. And I changed not only that password, but as many others as I could recall. We'll see what tomorrow brings...

Todayve In History: March 31
---------------------------------
- March 31, 1948: Everybody's favorite Global Warming Windbag Al Gore was born! (Global Warming Humor: Gore is so full of hot air, you should see the size of his Methane Footprint!)

- March 31, 1889: The Eiffel Tower officially opens to the public. (Of course, they celebrated by eating cheese, not bathing and then surrendering! There, a stereotype trifecta!)

- March 31, 1896: Whitcomb Judson patents the zipper. (Later that day, someone told him his fly was open...)

- March 31, 1918: The first Daylight Savings Time in the US goes into effect. (Think of all the daylight we've saved since then! I mean, when you consider compound interest and everything...)

- March 31, 1932: Ford publicly unveils it's first V-8 engine. (Wow! An engine that runs on vegetable juice!)

I can't believe I put an Al Gore reference in my blog post - what a llama. But I've been saving that "methane footprint" joke for over a year now, waiting for a chance to tell it. The verdict? Nowhere near as funny as I thought it would be. Maybe if I added that his fly was open...

Here's a cool video... I can't for the life of me remember if I've posted this in my blog before... If I have, my apologies.

I'm going to skedaddle for now. I hope all is well with you and yours.

Until tomorrow, remember, it's not the fall that kills you, it's the sudden stop at the end...
