Ha! I'm such a loser. My tab button was stuck and I started writing about it being stuck and whacking it with my pinky finger to unstick it and it unstuck and published itself.
Guess you had to be here.
I had a grandiose post planned for today. I was going to solve America's health care issues and publish my cure for H1N1 and leave you laughing like a hyena at the absurd simplicity of it all, but after spending the day feeding the poor and giving four litres (one gallon) of blood to the Red Cross I'm just too exhausted. Ok, that's bullshit. The real reason is that I've been watching an obscene amount of 30 Rock and Weeds in the past few days since the new tv season is starting soon and I have to be ready. And disc 3 of season one for 30 Rock is due back tomorrow. Also, I promised Middle Aged Woman that I'd do a He Read/She Read review of Pride & Prejudice & Zombies with her and I'm a little behind in the book because I got distracted reading another awesome book**. And watching a lot of tv. I haven't done a book review in like... forever so I'm a little nervous about his now. I may have to do something in grilled cheese.
Anyway, I've got a question for you. If you could go back in time and witness an historical event, what would you pick? And I don't mean take part in, I mean like, pack a lunch and a folding chair to watch from a distance. What would it be? I'm serious here. Comment. Tell me. The reason I'm asking is because I've been writing a story for my kids and my original story has moved well beyond where I thought I was going with it and I kinda have an idea where to go next but you might have a better idea which I could then steal from you and use as my own but I'd totally make you into a character in the story if I decided to use yours. And I'd tell you that I'd mention your name in the dedication, but that would be assuming it's ever going to get published, and come on, look at what you've been reading so far. But if it ever did turn into the Great American Novel I'd totally mention you in the dedication. And I know I'm not American, but Canada only has a population of 30 million-ish and the U.S. has like... hold on... wow, 300 million so you know where my literary ass is for sale if it ever comes to that. By the way, according to Wikipedia the U.S. also has a GDP of $14.264 trillion dollars. Not that you needed to know that, but what would you buy with $14 trillion dollars. Wait! Ignore that. Answer the history question first, because that was a serious question. Then you can answer the trillion dollar question.
