1,489 participants in the Ultimate Blog Party this year. It was pretty fun; I found some really interesting blogs and according to my site meter, I appear to have run off quite a few people. Heh. Sorry 'bout that folks, hope you won't need extensive therapy to recover. I really do need a warning sticker.
At any rate, I found some great new blogs to add to my reading list... if I missed yours, forgive me... Momnesia. What can I say? At any rate, just drop me a note and I'll fix it.

Optimism and Google
Ok, you. The google searcher who asked about "Bailiff Whack his Peepee" (I'm Number 1 with a Bullet on Google, folks! SO proud) at 10:48pm, 12:57am and 2:14am and clicked on the link to my blog EACH time... is that optimism, or do you need a sign? (Here's yer sign...)

My husband has recently discovered Facebook. His entire family has joined this interest and the other night I heard him talking really loudly. I thought he was yelling at a basketball game but when I listened more closely, the context was really out of place. So, I wandered downstairs to check it out.
He and his whole family were all on Skype and Facebook, having a high old time. Did I mention his parents are in their mid-eighties? My MIL burst into song, my FIl and my husband were having an argum... er, lively debate about IMing and other people were chatting about who knows what. It was cute. I get a kick out of my inlaws.

Commercials that Drive Me Insane
the Crayola toddler marker commercial. Is this woman crazy? Lets put a piece of paper on a WHITE carpet and hand a marker to a two year old. Is this commercial underwritten by Rug Doctor? Inquiring Gerbils Want to Know.
Also? This made me snort.
