Wow, I've done a surprising amount of those. Why does fired from a job make the list. Only happened once, and could go my whole life without that happening again

Ack, I totally forgot that you weren't showing up on bloglines, and yes, affirmative, for some reason your blog isn't showing up for me. (Note to self: Get off my lazy butt and actually click on Karen's blog....) Anyway, two things I would have commented on if I had realized you'd been posting:

1. First of all, it shocks me that you've never sold a Girl Scout cookie, because I now think of you as less of an American.

2. Abraham Lincoln and Jim Hensen? You crack me up.
