THE SHOWER

It's a little embarrassing for me to put this up because it's blatant self-promotion, but here goes...

The Girl has always liked the post I wrote where I said my life is like one of the characters in an episode of My Name Is Earl:

Earl goes to do right by the guy he locked in a truck and finds the guy dead in his apartment. Earl decides the way to make amends is to throw the man a funeral since he can't seem to find anyone else to do it. This guy doesn't seem to have had any friends at all. No one knows anything about him. Earl throws a lame funeral and goes to clean the man's apartment out. He bumps the computer and finds dozens of IM screens from the man's online friends.

Turns out the guy's Real Life was all online. He didn't have any close friends in Camden County, but he had a vibrant social life in online poker, blogs, and chat rooms. All his online friends came to his second funeral and sent the man off in style.

My husband turned to me and said, "Oh, honey, he's just like you!" I just nodded because of the lump in my throat.

Only instead of a funeral, she said she'd like to throw me a baby shower this way.  Sniff.

If you'd be interested in participating, The Girl set up an email account to organize the virtual shindig.  Email her at babygrokshower -at- yahoo.com and she'll fill you in on the details.

BORN IN JUST THE RIGHT YEAR

Our power was out for an hour this morning, and I had a random thought once it came back on.  It's a good thing I was in college when I was.  I spent the majority of my free time without high-speed internet until I was a senior.  After that, I read lots of books for fun in grad school because we only had dial-up.  And I discovered blogs about three months after I graduated.

How would I have gotten any homework done if there had been blogs when I was in school?
