Manic Monday

One thing I need to learn is to check the hours of operation of a place before I walk over a mile to get there. Case in point: I took the boy to get a haircut, only to realize they are closed on Mondays. Ugh. I enjoyed playing peek-a-boo with him on the way back, however. He is at such a fun age, he's goofy and giggly and it is so hard to be in a bad mood with a jolly little guy like that around. I hope he stays that way for awhile!

Frequent contributor Alicia sent this amazing performance to me, and I'd like to share it with you. Enjoy!

" honor of the
American soldier, you
quit making up things."

Uh, Sarah? The press
has the task of writing down
everything you say.

If you don't like that,
maybe you should just shut up,
or say smarter things.

The plot still thickens!
Was there 'racial profiling'
Or 'contempt of cop'?

Was Gates 'race baiting'
For media attention?
Cops 'covering ass'?

Tune in tomorrow
For further revelations
'Spun' to perfection!

Here's William Shatner
With a brilliant rendition
Of Palin's "poem".
