Sun Day

Okay…so I suck at blogging. Life’s been busy lately...Plus the rilly, rilly hot weather has sapped what creativity and motivation I have remaining in my two tired brain cells.

Yesterday, after having served himself up some delicious refried beans under my impatient eye (he just takes too long to serve himself), he dramatically plunged the spoon into the beans: “Excalibur!”

“You’re a dork” (See Note 1) was all I could muster. I did get a good laugh out of it though. (I didn’t have the heart to tell him that he should have said that when pulling the spoon out of the beans).

Mitt Romney won the Iowa Straw Poll, and I’m wondering what kind of weed his Iowa Straw Poll supporters (all 4,000 or so of them) are smoking up there.

I was going to dedicate an entire D.I.G. post to his problem with the truth and political issues, but I just ain’t feelin’ it. Do a little Googling and you’ll find plenty of legitimate information on the boy’s li’l problem. I do have a couple of modest entries about him: “Pants on Fire” and “Color Me Ignorant.

I can’t believe there are really people among us who would by a bed like this. And I wonder what kind of person the designer of this set is. I snapped this with my cell phone while we were hitting various furniture stores for kids’ desks and dressers.

If you can’t tell by the picture (click for larger one), the whole thing is made out of some shiny plastic. The swirls on the headboard and footboard are mirrors. Needless to say, we spent only about 5 minutes in this store, laughing most of the time.


Note 1 It is neither my intent, nor my desire to offend, oppress, repress, disenfranchise, or otherwise hurt the tiny feelings of dorks, relatives of dorks, dork sympathizers, or dork wannabes; the reference to my son as a dork was made solely as a term of affection, and to indicate to him that I acknowledged his success at “making a funny.”

hahahaha war on zombies...i still think its funny.

EXCALIBUR!!!...maybe he was putting it back into stone?

As a dork myself. I take great offense to your comment about dorks. Now i will not be offended if you would please be kind enough to write the word dork...10 times....on your blog. (not counting the 6 you already have.)

How dare you!!! I'm not upset at that fact that you called your son a "dork". What offended me in the post was the following: "tiny feelings of dorks". How dare you imply that mine, gator's, and the rest of the dork population feelings are "tiny".

Kind of like saying, "so easy a caveman can do it", or "keytars are gay".

I'm not sure I will/can continue to read your blog or be your friend if you continue with your obtuse remarks.

I strongly recommend that you take a good look within to see where the need to belittle those of us with "tiny" feelings is coming from my man.

With that said, I will be waiting for you to share your introspection.

By the way a formal apology to all dorks would be appropriate, maybe not accepted by all but appropriate nonetheless.

Not much blogging going on over at my pad. My computer puts out heat so I'm off hiding in the freezer.

The_Gator said...

Amen to that Ney!

A nerdy boy wished for a planet full of zombies! Planet Zombie, Zombie Planet! Give it up for Steve! Ooooh, Dead Fred, and Dick Cheney ohhhhhhhhh, Planet Zombie! BRAINS!

Uh...what's a keytar?

I like the "excalibur" line myself, but I do agree...he should have used it when pulling the spoon out of the beans as opposed to plunging the spoon in the beans.

I'm not sure if I'm a dork. How do you find out? Do you use a turkey baster? Could be fun...

Gator: Perhaps he was returning the “blade” to the beans. I shall offer an apology to all dorks when I get a few minutes….dork!

Nay!! How in the ever livin’ hell could I have forgotten my favorite, most sensitive, delicate-as-a-flower dork of all?! I’ll be sure to include you in my apologies, which I will post on my blog and leave on for a week.

Margie: I know what you mean. Every time I sit down I bitch myself out for not getting more insulation on the damned house! I have a ceiling fan right over my melon, so that helps a bit though. Thanks for dropping by again.

WebMiz: It was really sick. I wish I’d had my “big” camera to take a real picture of it. It was so cheesy. Like something you’d see on some cheesy MTV “reality” show.

Woozie: You fucking slay me man!

Sudie: You missed the big Keytar controversy? Here's my contribution.

You don't even come clse to sucking at blogging but we would like to see more posts from you.

OH, YEAH! The "Key-tar" (keyboard/guitar hybrid).

Got it.

I'm going back to bed now.
