Ahh...the rain is back. Great.

Anybody else a little weirded out by the outpouring of love for Michael Jackson? Like...you know...Congress taking time to read a resolution saluting him (which is actually OK, since it represents five minutes that Congress is not wrecking something else).

Have we forgotten what a creep he was? Since when do we gloss over pedophilia because he made some excellent music 30 years ago? And yes, I do think he was a pedophile, and yes, I am aware that he was acquitted of those charges.

Anyway, it is too early in the morning for a lengthy rant, so I will get off of this subject and move on...

Fantastic weekend! I ended up leaving work early on Friday and heading to the beach by myself so I would get there in the afternoon. Weather was beautiful when I got there, and Munchkin, Big Sis and I had some spectacular sunset cocktails (and then, of course, it started raining again). Saturday was foggy but really nice, and I got a TON of color because I didn't put on enough sunscreen. The fog always gets me...it is way too easy to underestimate the sun's strength through the fog. So, I am looking like a little bit of a tomato right now:-) Excuse for The Boy to rub lotion on all the parts I can't reach? Yea, I agree...

Yesterday was kinda cloudy, but a really good lazy day. Munchkin and Smoking Hot Roommate had something to do in Chatham, and The Boy, The Rocket Scientist, The Brain Surgeon, Papa Bear and two of his friends were out fishing for most of the day. Big Sis was actually feeling really under the weather and was in bed most of the day (poor thing:-(), which meant that I had a whole lot of peace and quiet!

Then, headed home and finally got back at maybe 8:30 or so...got a head start on that lotion-ing;-) and was sound asleep by 10:00. Pretty darn good couple of days...

Yeah, I'm at a loss for the big deal people are making about this too. Sure, he wrote/sang some great music, but we don't know him; his life was a ultimately sad train wreck (and I hope maybe he has peace now); and enough is enough!

Yeah, I am...I thought it was just me that felt that way!
