You know what’s awesome? Watching the Board of Selectmen meeting on DVR over your Cheerios with the ability to fast forward so everyone looks like they’re in an old-time whacky comedy reel. You just need some peppy music that ends in a trombone “wah-wah” to set the mood or, alternately, the ability to hear what they’re saying so the presentation on recycling rates (more on that later) sounds like it was done by eco-friendly chipmunks.
You know what’s even more awesome? Waking up to find out your blog got its first Universal Hub mention and your stats counter is already halfway to your final count from yesterday.
But even awesomer, and slightly scary? The news that we’re getting six additional people Christmas Day — my brother-in-law’s family, all the way from Utah — and that includes four nieces, two gorgeous teenageers and twin toddlers! I have to go child-proof my house (do we still own a baby gate?) and make sure only the cool music is in the CD rack!
