Baby Whisperer?

Holding Lily while her mom eats pizza. Apparently she doesn't like other people holding her but she was pretty happy hanging out with me. Don't get your hopes up. Still not having kids.

"Still not having kids."

ROTFLMAO...I hear you! They're a blast to play with. But, boy oh boy, it's a relief to give them back!

Emma,

I think it is getting more and more difficult for our Muzenews. We walked by huge baby posters at Gap Kids the other day and Muze let out a audible "ooohhhawwwww". I asked her what that was for and she blushed. Yeah...blushed.

Whatever. See the key is, I can still give the babies back. Lily wasn't as thrilled the last time I held her even though my baby quieting prowess was demonstrated several times before that.

It's quite possible...actually rather common, I believe... to be able to appreciate the cuteness of a baby/child and yet still not want one of your very own. I have friends who have some of the cutest damned kids I've ever seen. I'll hold them and play with them...even occasionally babysit. And then I'm MORE than happy to give them back.

Away, Away

We're on a mini-vaca in an area where they're experiencing forest fires (thanks asshole arsonist). It's an area that makes Clifton Hill in Niagara Falls, Ontario look rinky dinky. Holy cow. Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg is no joke. Tomorrow we try to escape it and find some peace and nature in the (literally) Smoky Mountains.

I wrote this on another site:
Perhaps I'm too old for the reveal-all-confessional type of blogging but reading claw marks lately makes me want to start blogging again to at least expand upon the thoughts I wouldn't otherwise write out in a Facebook post or vague tweet.
A couple of years ago, I took the month of February off from Facebook under the premise that the time I wasn't wasting on Facebook could be channeled into other things. I blogged quite a bit, I read a few books, got out a little, and generally tried to avoid looking at anything on there. It wasn't perfect, by far. A fair amount of friends still use Facebook to communicate about social events and general happenings, so I was out of the loop on all of that, thus defeating part of my goal to be in better touch with hanging out with them. Weird how that shit works.
Ultimately, I think I want more conversation. The introvert in me loves social media because it allows me form a complete thought and reply to wha…

[UPDATED VERSION!] The Trouble With The Electoral College

In light of this week's Presidential election, here's an update on why the Electoral College is awful. Watch the original video after this short update:


[UPDATE] The YouTuber went back and did ANOTHER update to correct himself on some issues. It's also worth watching especially because one part of it reminded me of the awful governing situation we have in New York State that is referred to as "3 men in a room."
