It was fun while it lasted

A few days ago, I was the number 2 hit if you googled for idiot strings.

Now I'm nowhere to be found.

Bummer.

Not that I should expect more. Hardly anyone knows I'm here.

Somebody says something stupid.

Somebody says something smart.

Life is SOO Good!

There are no contact lenses stuck in my eyeball.

Could life get any better?

I think not!

Happiest day of my life!

So, after only two weeks of running a blog, I'm already the number 2 hit on google if you search for idiot strings.

Not bad eh?

Though I'm not sure what would inspire someone to search for idiot strings on the 'net, unless they're trying to find my blog. And I'm not really sure what would inspire someone to try to find my blog either.

Stuff on Sale

Have you ever wondered why stuff goes on sale?

I never gave it too much thought, except that sometimes things go on sale when they've been sitting on the shelf too long. Or, perhaps, the store that we're shopping at wants to be nice to us (to entice us to come back of course).

I recently made a couple of purchases of items that were on sale. Neither of these items would spend too much time on the shelf, so that is not why they were on sale.

Not too far back I bought a whole bunch of soap on sale. When I used it, I noticed that it didn't lather up quite as well. I blamed it on the wash cloth, which was wearing out. But the soap ran out eventually, and I had to buy new soap. When I started using the new stuff, I noticed that it lathered up better than the previous four bars.

More recently, strawberry jam was on sale, so I bought two jars instead of just one. I noticed that the jam seemed runnier and had less fruit than before. I chalked it up to the fact that, around the same time as the jam purchase, I decided to store my jam in the cupboard rather than the fridge and that the change was due to the warmer temperature of the jam. As with the soap, that jam got used up, and I purchased some jam that was regular priced. Sure enough, as I'm sure you've guessed by now, the jam was not as runny and had more fruit.

So in two cases, I bought something on sale, and in both cases what I bought on sale was of lower quality than the same regular priced items before and after they were on sale.

Coincidence?

More Crunchy than Soggy

Over at PomoChristian admin lists ten features of so called crunchy conservatives from an endorsement by Adam Daifallah of Rod Dreher's book Crunchy Cons: How Birkenstocked Burkeans, Gun-Loving Organic Gardeners, Evangelical Free-Range Farmers, Hip Homeschooling Mamas, Right-Wing Nature Lovers, and Their Diverse Tribe of Countercultural Conservatives Plan to Save America (Or At Least the Republican Party.)

I'm not as crunchy as he is. But I'm pretty crunchy.

Geez. Why didn't I just link to Dreher's blog to begin with, and hat tip to PomoChristian.
