Hi. I'm trying to think of another description to put here. Any ideas? I'll try again at 420.

I gave up trying to sleep...

...normal hours. Yesterday I went to bed early enough to wake up at 1 AM, fully refreshed and ready to start a brand new middle of the night. That wasn't much of a stretch, I've worked nights most of my life.

Sometime in the middle of my slumber, I was awoken by two kids fighting. The 13 year old boy had smacked the 10 year old girl and, considering how many different people have hit me over the years, I have a HUGE problem with violence in any form. I got up, hugged the little girl, watched the 10:00 PM episode of Family Guy with her and then I went back to sleep, hoping peace was in the air.

A while later, at exactly 12:27 AM to be precise, I woke up and made myself coffee, fed the puppy and took her for a walk in the middle of the night. When it came time to visit the downstairs bathroom for the first time, I found the above mentioned little girls' bathing suit in the toilet. She takes swimming lessons at the local YMCA and her suit is usually hanging in the shower to dry before her next lesson. The "boy who hits girls" had obviously tossed the little girls' suit in the toilet while he was angry last night.

Just to be a bitch, I did the laundry. When the bully comes downstairs to use the facilities, he will find his sisters' bathing suit hanging in it's usual place on the shower door, all clean, dry and April fresh.

I have a couple of options regarding how I'll handle him in the morning. I could just act like nothing happened, thereby nullifying his disgusting behavior. But, I sort of prefer another tact. I think I'll tell him that I "fished" the suit out of the toilet with "something", smile broadly, exposing my pearly whites, and then let him wonder how safe his toothbrush is. As I said, just to be a bitch.

So, it's a bit after 5 AM and I've made coffee, walked the dog, done the laundry, cleaned the kitchen, watched an old movie on TCM, checked my email, my Facebook page and written this post.

Speaking of Facebook, I recently went into my profile to change the picture from one of Stewie Griffin flipping the bird to one of Lois Griffin doing nothing. I had to because of the kids who seem to visit my page. Whilst I was editing my profile, I found out that I had labeled myself as "Interested in: Women". Now, I do find some women intriguing, but I don't think that's the message I was sending. I don't know how I didn't catch that for all this time, but I didn't. So, I fixed it. I am, as they say in the county lock-up, "strictly dickly". I never meant to advertise myself as a lesbian...not that there's anything wrong with that!

Thats a shame that the kids fight like that. I wish all parents would try to talk things out before deciding to split. I've seen cases where couples split up but kids still feel loved by both parents. I wish you and the kids the best. www.princeton-divorce-mediation.com

Can't tell ya how much it impresses me to see Cold Calls on your Blog (or any Blog.) Once again, another example of "Shilling For Clients In Cyberspace."
Here's my thoughts FWIW: If you're so damn good at what you do how would you possibly have the TIME to mess around with Blogs? Why not get an annoying pop-up ad like the rest of the "people" trying to sell us exactly what we don't need?
Oh, that's right: We all have blocks for that stuff. So you just pretend you're making a comment and embed your "service" in the comment. How unique. How ridiculous. It just screams "LOOSER." Of course you could just create your OWN Blog, present yourself as an "Expert" and blatantly self-promote your latest gadget or "Self-Help" publication that was also Self-Published. But a Blog takes soooo much more time and effort. I'd rather take my chances clicking on Adult Porn/S&M/Bondage or some such crap than these links.

LOLOL, that's their way of advertising without paying me.
