Why do spam comments on my blog think I want to see Miley Cyrus, Pamela Anderson or Charlie Gibson naked? Okay, maybe they’ve got something with Charlie Gibson…

Kidding! That’s just wrong (wink, wink, nudge, nudge)

Seriously my spam comments have gotten kind of insulting. They’ve started referencing how much they love my blog and how they will definitely be back to read more. But they are totally spambot comments. So do I post them because I’m a narcissistic attention whore who loves compliments or delete them? You’ve won this round, Spambots.

Do other people love Halloween photos as much as parents? I mean, obviously every parent think that their kid is the cutest thing since dead kitten mittens, but do the Interwebs really care about seeing how adorable my daughter is dressed as an octopus?

I knew you’d say yes.

I think that's a smile

I’m really missing my Kid-Free Tuesday Mornings. Now that I have my crazy town appointments every week, I’m lucky to squeeze in a half hour or so of just “me” time. Which usually is “blog” time, hence the lack of daily posts lately. However, crazy town appointments do make for good blog fodder…

You know you live in Western Washington when there is a torrential downpour for more than a week and every time you mention the weather, the other person responds with, “Isn’t it great?! This summer was too hot!”

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Speaking of Washingtonians, I’m fairly certain that any driver who drives below the speed limit and/or disregards any or all traffic signage (I’m talking to you, retarded driver who misses your off ramp on the freeway and instead of getting off at the next off ramp, you stop and BACK UP until you can make your exit. What. The. Fuck.), should be sent off to Gitmo.

Any driver who insists on driving exactly the speed limit (it’s just a recommendation, people. Come on!), should be violently caned in a public square.

And all drivers who get out of my way while I drive like a banshee on fire should be awarded a Medal of Honor.

Today as I waited for my hazlenut mocha in the drive thru lane of Starbucks, I got to hear a male barista decide to address the customers on the intercom with a really thick (and fake) French accent.

It. Was. Awesome.

Seriously, that’s exactly what I needed at 9:30 on this gloomy, fogged-in morning. Totally made my day.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Hey Interwebs, what’s on your mind this morning?

    I would totally tell you that the weather is awesome because it was too hot this summer.

    Baby Bee makes the cutest darned octopus I’ve ever seen. I love unusual costumes like that.

    What on my mind? Wondering what the h*** I’m going to blog about today so I don’t blow this NaBloWriMo thing. The pressure!

    Will TJ be scarred for life if we dont carve a pumpkin this year? Will she realize I was just too lazy to get off my ass and buy one?

    And I am still wondering if you are going to Skype one of your crazy town appts….

    Love the costume. My kid gets to wear a snowsuit because its already cold and snowy here. It has bear ears…does that count as a costume?

    I’m right there with you on local drivers. I’m usually a pretty calm person, until some jack-ass decides that he’s too good for a turn signal and decides to cut me off while I’m cruising along at a great clip and he’s busy channeling grandma on an Ambien bender without her glasses on. I have to resist the temptation to ram them just a little bit.

    As for Bee in her costume, that will never not be cute. More please!

    Charlie Gibson is HAWT. Bee is a kick-@$$ octopus. I’m having a 3 year old chicken for Halloween. Not for dinner. For costume.

    Just wanted to let you know you have a new subscriber! I found your blog via some sort of Seattle Mom Blogger directory (I live in Issaquah), and I’m now somehow comforted in knowing there really are others out there who’s mind works scarily (is that a word?!) close to mine.

    Cant tell you how many times I’ve wanted to get out of my car and physically bitch slap the drivers on 405 who last minute merge in front of everyone for the I-90 exit.
    Ooof.

    A friend of mine once had the Starbucks barista tell her if she sang her order, it’d be free.

    That has never happened to me. Dammit.
