I have failed in my job as a dutiful blogger. Its 1:00 in the afternoon and this is the first post of the day. I wish I had a good reason but I dont. Sure, I've been a little busy but not that much. I'm just a slacker.

It has been fun to watch all the entries coming in for Reader Participation Time. Some of you guys are very very close. Others? Not so much. If you haven't already commented, keep em coming!

Being hurricane season, I caught an article on CNN yesterday that amused the hell out of me. It consisted of suggestions from normal, everyday folks on what could be done to soften the blows of hurricanes. A few suggestions I thought worth sharing -

Coat the surface of the ocean with olive oil. Of course, add a little roasted garlic and some fresh basil and all you need is a big-ass loaf of bread!

Build large fans and aim them at the ocean.!

Drop a nuclear warhead into the storm. Great - high winds, rain, fallout and massive doses of radiation. Sure, that makes sense.

That's it for now. Remember to vote!

I'm being a slacker today too. Haven't even touched my blog yet. gah.

So, tell me now... I can't stand the anticipation. 35 was right on the money, wasn't it?

The voting hurts my head... as do the suggestions posed to ward off the hurricane. Ouch.

These weren't children's suggestions, were they? I'm a little bit afraid.

I saw the one about exploding a bomb inside the hurricane. My favorite thing about it was the scientist trying to be all polite and give valid reasons that it wouldn't work rather than just telling the woman she was an idiot.

LOL. Throw some balsmic vinegar in on the first suggestion and I'll bring the huge-ass loaf of bread! I'm like super hungry. :)

That was CNN reporting live from the trailer parks, right? Right? These people are the same folks that can't find Mississippi on the map and think the French Riviera is a foreign car. . .

Have another Milwaukee's Best there big guy.

Guilty of slackerism here today too...must be the impending doom...

I'm with Colby on this one. No, maybe the CNN dude was reporting from deep DEEP in the Ozarks???

Oh, and about the CD's? I'm damn close, I bet! (I'm judging based on MINE... which are a lot.)Then I multiplied by 3 cause I felt like it. Heeeeee

I think we should "Just say no!" to hurricanes.
