Woo hoo! I got my Virtual Sea Monkeys today! In case you were wondering Virtual Sea Monkeys is a CD Rom game by Creature Labs, the creators of the Creatures series of games. I've been dying to get the Sea Monkey's for a while now, (Thank you Frimlin!) but I couldn't find it for the longest time! Matter of fact, I accidentally got the wrong Sea Monkeys title (the seller misrepresented what he was selling) when I was shopping on Ebay. So now that I have the real thing you can imagine why I'm so pleased! Ok, so it's easy to please an idiot... whatever... I'm going to go play now!

Mother just called to tell me that I'd miss the best "The Rest of the Story" that she'd ever heard. Apparently not only was the story wonderful, but this was the first time that mother remembers hearing Paul Harvey cry. I'm sad now that I missed it.

I've looked everywhere, and I can't find that broadcast. I can't even find a transcript. I'm so disappointed! I really wanted to hear it after mom called me on the phone. Paul Harvey's official website (http://www.paulharvey.com) didn't even have it. They only had the Morning and Noon news broadcasts! :(

Hee! Aren't pointless quizzes fun?

09:19:23 AM
Hmm... maybe I should make a page just for pointless quizzes...

What box do you get put in?

Have a good day babies!

07:27:35 AM
It started out as something to say to comfort my daughter when she was the tender age of three and heading off on the bus to meet the adventures of schooling head on. I fussed and worried every night for at least a week over how she would be and how well she would do with being suddenly thrust into this new situation called Pre-K. I wanted to do something, to be there. Yes, I know it sounds silly, but after all, she'd been with me most of her life and the few days that she hadn't she was with relatives that she knew well. I had to figure out how to make it the best experience it could be for her, and at the same time show her that going to school wasn't something to worry about but rather something that should be fun!

The answer I came up with wasn't something that I'd come up with after long deliberation the night before her departure, but rather a spur of the moment gesture that I hoped would help. I slapped what I thought might pass for a cheery smile on my face, and I said, "Have a good day, baby!" That afternoon when she returned I had her favorite lunch ready, and I asked her, "So, did you have a good day?" I was thrilled to hear, through hungry yet smiling mouthfuls of hot dogs & Mac n cheese, all about her adventures in Pre-K for the day! Since that first day, it has now become the standard departure line for everyone as they are leaving my home in the morning. This morning was the first time that I realized that it's not something that is said just for the ones who are leaving, but also for those of us who are staying. Have a good day doesn't just mean what is said, it also implies that they should be safe. That when they come home there will be someone who loves and misses them here to greet them when the day is over and say, "So did you have a good day?"

After much searching with no results, I finally decided to send a letter to PaulHarvey.com to see if I can at least get a transcript for the radio show that I missed. I hope they actually see the email, and will answer it!

If it weren't for bad luck...

11:44:32 AM
I'd not have any luck at all today. First I discovered that it was snowing when I wanted to make a trip to a friend's house. Then I found that the computer I was building had a defective part. NOT GOOD! Now I have to wait another three days for the replacement part. What bites is that the part just happened to be the mother board. *Heavy sigh* I'm thinking about going back to bed, but I'm also thinking that those dishes over there are preparing to revolt and run away with the spoons... Hee hee! Maybe I should forego the sleeping and do the dishes.
