This Week in Random:

I get a lot of hits from people Googling "love bug" images.
They get this Garfield cartoon.


Note to my surly son:


If you spend your day mumbling into your collar because you are pouting and slouched over, and if you respond to the question, "What did you say?" with the answer, "Nevermind," you lose the privilege of complaining that no one listens to you.

The Husband has three alarm clocks.
He has an electric, digital clock.
But, in case there in a power outage overnight, he has a backup battery operated clock.
But, in case the batteries wear down overnight, he has a backup windup clock.
Which makes me wonder why he doesn't just use the windup clock.

Doesn't matter all that much to me as long as he remembers to turn them all off on the weekends.

That's a cool story you linked to. I almost hit my wife in the head with a shovel swinging it at a red wasp when we were newlyweds.

I was literally scared to death of wasps...truly terrified! I realized how silly it was right then. I've never been afraid of one since.

I wish I'd written a note like that to my kid when he was about 15...

I totally get the 3 alarm clocks. No one wants to be woken up by the shrill sound of an old style clock, but to have it as backup? Golden...
