Boring blog = happy children

Jon and Kate Gosselin are getting a divorce (unless it’s the most brilliant publicity stunt ever to boost ratings) and instead of blogging about it, I played Apples to Apples with my kids.

President Obama shot his mouth off about a white policeman arresting a black professor, sparking an endless debate among bloggers and pundits, but instead of entering the fray, I took the kids to the Plaza for lunch and ice cream.

The internet exploded with a rumor that Sarah and Todd Palin were divorcing, and instead of writing about that, I read to the girls.

The health care and cap and trade bills loom like vultures over our battered and bleeding economy, and instead of posting, I played Risk with my two eldest daughters, whose nonagression pact held long enough for them to crush their father and me like bugs and rule the world between them.

I wonder what stories I’ll get to ignore next week?

    I enjoyed this post! People here in NC really want to know how to make meatballs the way you make them. The next time you wish to ignore some news, send us the recipe!

    I taught a certain lovely young lady how to make them. Perhaps she could whip up a batch for you? She knows the technique but probably needs the proportions, which I’ll send you. I don’t measure, though, so it’ll be very imprecise. BTW, why are you commenting anonymously? You’re NOT the shy type.

    I spent a week on vacation in New York and I got to ignore the news during that whole time! It was great!
    Now I have plunged back into it again – can’t stay away long, too much going on that we are going to need to fight for – or against.
