So Annoying

Totally wrote an exquisite response to this awful, nasty and dangerous silliness, posted it and walked away. Now, not so much appearing on the blog. Sorry kids, didn't save it. Trusted the ole blogger, I did. Call me a fool.

Anyway, I also mentioned that while I appreciate all of your kind birthday wishes promoted by Ubs' rendition of Happy Birthday to Mommy, it was not my birthday. The child believes this is a song of endearment and love and sings it each time he is feeling particularly smitten with you. There seems to be no correlation to him between it and a special day, just between it and a special person. He's sweet.

Father's Day

T'was delightful though if not too darn hot to attend the Phillies game. As it turns out, looks like I missed seeing Alito in the flesh.

From the Phillyist*:

"The fellow who threw out the first pitch in the Phillies' winning game Sunday afternoon was none other than Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito, Jr. He grew up a Phillies fan in Trenton, NJ and says throwing the ball (while wearing a Phillies jersey with his own name across the back, no less) was a dream come true. We'd like to say having a local fellow on the highest court in the land is a dream come true for us, but...well, we're about to get political, so we'll just stop right there."

Probably for the best as Pops would have been thrown into a constitutional diatribe incorporating short discourses on privacy, the seperation of church and state and big business.

On the down-side, Pops viewed his favorite lose the US Open. What an idiot.

*That Phillyist is so on top of things.

A Moment

I was in the bathroom, applying myriad gels, lotions and what nots, brushing the chompers and what should I hear emanating from my bedroom but my little person's lyrically swaying words, over and over, "Mommy, love you...Mommy, love you...Mommy, love you..."...longish pause...and then the most beautiful and heartfelt rendition of Happy Birthday to Mommy that I have heard in low my many years.

I'm starting to feel Feingold.

Senator Feingold was recently quoted as saying, "Democrats were in the majority in the United States Senate when we voted for the Iraq war and we passed the USA Patriot Act. It's not enough to be just in the majority. You have to stand for something."

That's delicious. Russ might just be the guy for me.
