Survivor

Survivor cranks on without me -
as I make dinner at 7:30 and leave the dirty dishes and organize things for the morning and spend time with each boy, checking on their days and moods and homework.
I saw some of last night's show and I loved it.
I didn't write a recap but I think:

1. I too would have dirt on the boob area of my tee shirt if I was in the game.

2. I like the way Ace plays and want him to win.

3. Sugar is the secret (or not so) hero.

4. Everyone looks pretty skinny.

5. Randy seems somewhat more coherent.

6. I need The Guider's email address.

7. We have weathered a very difficult two weeks, here at the Bird household, which I am not going to write about and you are not going to comment on. Send us prayers and strength, respect my silence on this topic and know that I believe we will all be okay. In the near future. Each of us could win our own Survivor prize.

I'm taking a few days off. Don't worry about me or us. Send us good vibes. Know that all will be well and I'll be back very soon.

Don't assume that I'm here in your comment box to leave a comment. Nothing could be further from the truth. Your request will be honored. I'm not commenting on anything. In fact, it's almost as if I'm not even here. This is just me, not commenting. Just sitting here, humming a little tune to myself. Which has nothing to do with your post, by the way. Although I can't really comment on that either.

Okay. That's all. Respect.

Thank you very much.

And good-night.

Dammit! Eurolush totally stole my comment.

I'm just here to report--apropos of nothing much--that I've heard the Beatles catalog is going to be released on Rock Band.

And I hope that helps everyone in the Bird household.

You know, it just took me two minutes of frowny concentration to FINALLY work out what the less than three thing means.

Best wishes...

I just want you to know that the word verification thingy is 'glumbo'.

Which is a real word!

It is the name for Tuvaluan Cold Turkey.

Hearty stuff to you and yours.

Sending good vibes, although hoping you no longer need them. But I think they can't hurt -- and today's word is oballato. Hmmm.
