First of all, you may think of kibble as the coarsely ground pellet food in doggie dishes. True, 'tis. But it is also the first name of my former boss's wife. "How dreadful!" you may think, but she was a supremely striking, tall, super-model-intelligent RN who carried her mother's maiden name with such grace that when she walked into a room, everyone turned to look at her, not just men. And there's your first kibble of the day.
2ndly, It's true. The Osmond patriarch passed away yesterday. He was 90 years old. Wow. Dancing with the Stars ... Jane Seymour ... Marie ... Apparently reality shows are dangerous on many levels.
Bit: News from "America's Hometown," Muncie, Indiana: Our mayoral contest was apparently decided by a margin of 9 votes yesterday, making it the closest race we've had since 1879. If we stay true to our "Armed and Famous" reality show rep, the candidates will probably set up a wrastlin' match in the downtown empty city pool to see "who owns this town."
Is there anything more aggravating than the "Viva, Viagra!" song?
Today, the baby of our family is 15. I remember the morning well. My labor was induced, so I had actually picked her birth date. The doctor and I were discussing which date, and unbeknownst to him, I have a strong preference to even numbers over odd, except for 7, which is clearly better than 6 or 8. So I pushed (no pun intended) for November 7. He said, "But that's a Saturday." I said, "But it's the best day." He said, "But I'm playing tennis that morning." I said, "But it's the best day." He looked at me with suspicion and said, "Oh, okay." Happy birthday, Kritter Brynn!
This is not who you think it is. It is Halle Berry. I feel I must clarify that because Prince, or the artist formerly known as "Weirdo," is apparently enraged that fans are using his likeness on their blogs, etc. Really, who do they think they are, setting up graven images of Prince?? He's very indignant about this and is suing. I think I know a little guy who's cranky and needs a nap.
