What are You Doing? (Or more importantly, what are you doing better than others?)

I was teasing Jed about Twitter yesterday (so touchy! So touchy!) and was commenting that Twitter, and Facebook updates are like getting braggy Christmas cards 24 hours a day. I did have to admit that Blogs, too, are perfect vehicles for one to toot his own horn (what did you want me to say her?)

At any rate, we live in a funny world now, don't we? We all have these little places where we can sing our own praises, and post our cutest pictures. And we all keep checking each others' places and feeling a little bit worse about ourselves after:

"Oh, he runs marathons."
"Wow, that sure looks like a tasty meal she whipped up."
"I wish I was going on a trip."
"My kid can't read."
"I wish I'd found that YouTube link first."
"My bathroom looks like schnackle."
"I don't dry fruit."
"Should've stayed awake to catch that conference talk everyone's tweeting about."
"My kids eat sugar. Sometimes only sugar. Not even organic sugar."
"What is organic anyway?"

Well enough already. Yikes!
This week only bad pictures. Starting with this one:
Fa la la la la, la la la la!

Hahaha. Ah Jayne I'm so glad you're my cousin. I love you! If I had something super witty to say right here to be a little bit cooler and brag a little bit about my accomplishments, I would. But, I don't have anything to brag about...blast! Looking forward to a week of flattering photos.

Sugar is a main food group in our house. And I have no answer for your question about organic as I have no clue either.

And to think that I thought you'd post about not parking in a tow-away zone.... ;)

You kinda look like that guy in Beetlejuice who sprinkles that stuff on people's heads.
