My eyes are bugging out

With a combination of grandparents who are doing their best to occupy my kids and my own poor parenting, I've spent the better part of two days working on this Afghanistan research for Reader's Digest (Canada). It's taking forever. Four pages of 20 in, I have accumulated 50 sources. Many stories require only 30 or so. This is on pace to exceed that tenfold.

As part of the work, I did something cool this morning - something that may be unique in world history. I made a phone call from Freeport, Bahamas to Kabul, Afghanistan. Really, how many people would have ever done that before? Granted, we used Skype, but still....

Child Two just told she read my account of her birth on my wife's site. I married a plagiarist, apparently.

Bonus premature trash-talking:

Since the beginning of the baseball season, my four-man Irrational League team has owned first place (with the exception of one inconsequential day). Wire to wire, baby! We'll see where I stand after the draft. I'm not going to go in for - well, I'll talk draft strategy after our draft on April 14.

That was a commissioned piece, doofus, and it is correctly attributed. Plagiarist, feh.

webs -

You want some "Sumseeds" ? If you're a baseball fan, you need these...*

I'm still funnier than you. Gee whiz and the gulf is widening. Get with it, buddy.

*They're my client. I'll send you a case. But you have to email me your addy.

I appreciate the offer, and you did get me hooked on chipotle Tabasco, but I prefer pizza or BBQ sunflower seeds over caffeine.
