I fully intended to choose Nipsey Russel as my running mate, until it was brought to my attention that he died several years ago. Other than that, we'd be unbeatable.
As such, I want the guy who works at Costington's in the Simpsons, who always says "Yeeesssssss!" (his name is Franko Nelson, I understand...). I'm figuring that way, he'll agree with all of my policy directives.
Somebody pranked me with this today. Whoever it was, "You won this round!"
Actually pretty slick, I must say.

watching the odometer roll over.
They are definitely the children of their mother (as my pop likes to
say). Their love of reading, art, reality television all comes from
I on the other hand can only claim responsibility for their sense of
humor, vibrant personalities and peerless athletic ability.
So it's clearly a draw...

How to sense how other people are reacting to what I'm saying or doing
How to say 'eggplant' two different ways in Arabic
How to get along with anyone (as long as they're not jerks - sometimes even when they are jerks)
How to carry a pencil when running through the house (for the kids at home, it's with the point facing down)
How to treat people
That I could easily make it through an entire summer with three ingredients - couscous, cinnamon and sugar
That people can do amazing things when circumstances force them to
That everyone else drives way too fast
Not to leave a hamster unattended with a cat in the house
No matter what else comes and goes, you always have family.
Happy Birthday Mom. If I show up at your house with a knife and fork in my shirt pocket inquiring about lasagna, you know what to do...

Part of the reason for the lack of posts over the past week or so lies about 100 miles south of Hockessin. Yes, we just completed another week at the beach, this time with Meaghan's family.
Been bugging the Mrs. that she should have a blog of her own. She certainly has more relevant things to say than I do, IMO.
