It’s a good thing that I didn’t get 10 comments on the delurking day post because I have been too sick to blog. Yesterday, I was so sick that I had to have my husband stay home from work to take care of the kids. (I homeschool three boys, in case you are a newbie.)
I am still feeling pretty aweful, but I am also getting bored, so I thought I would do a semi-linkdump. It’s a linkdump with commentary.
- Computer-illiterate woman blames Dell and Ubuntu for the fact that she is clueless, doesn’t know how to ask for help, and dropped out of her online classes. Personal responsibility, anyone? The TV station was able to fix her problems by communicating with Verizon and the school. She could have done the same thing. Don’t blame the penguin.
- The Burlington Free Press rails against the 9.14% school budget increase in, City school budget divorced from reality. Is it me, or is that title harsh? Deservedly so, but harsh nonetheless.
- The Obama’s are calling you to serve your communities on January 19. I don’t have a problem with this. I have always said that a president can be a moral leader by example and rhetoric, as opposed to legislating our freedom away. If you want to serve, serve. If you don’t, don’t. But, you know it’s the right thing to do. And you can’t be a part of our hopey-changey oneness if you don’t serve.
- Thomas Sowell makes the case for why President Bush should pardon Scooter Libby.
- Added: How could I forget this? Star Wars retold by someone who has never seen the movies. It only covers the original trilogy. Bill Simmon said it had him ROFL[his]AO. I didn’t think it was quite that funny, but there was one part that had me LOLing pretty hard.
That’s all I feel up to right now. When I kick this cold, I have a few longer posts swirling around in my head that I want to get to.
Speaking of cold, there really should be another word for what I have. I mean, how can the sniffles and a little cough have the same name as this monster that has taken over my body and made me feel this lousy?
Oh, yeah, and still speaking of cold, we’re up to -1! (That’s Farhenheit, by the way.) No wonder they started calling it “climate change.”
