Seattle and Slides.

Happy frickin' Monday, folks.

Not sure how your weekends are, but with two young kids at home I am ex-frickin-hausted by Sunday night, and actually excited about work on Monday.

Yeah, I know. Father of the Year.

Youngest is in the throes of potty training, and quite excited about it, so we made 783 trips to the potty this weekend, ate 286 jelly beans, and washed away 177 gallons of urine.


Took my ravenous dogs to Starbucks not once but TWICE for breakfast this weekend, and used multiple parks and fountains to fill time and keep them from killing each other, and in turn, me. Mom got to sleep an extra hour, and my life was shortened by at least that much.

Told you recently about my Twitter addiction, and yesterday decided to create a vehicle to help young Twits like myself develop more of a following. A couple of you with more followers than the Jonas Brothers laughed at me.

But I picked up 18 followers in one day. So you can pretty much chomp a steamer.

Of course, 18 a day is probably still small beans to you. If it is, can still chow down.

Don't mess with me this morning. I'm covered in kiddie urine.

Potty training is the pits, man. Hopefully it will be over soon!

I hate that your kid responds to bribery.

Hate it. HATE IT. HATE IT!!!!

It's my jealousy talking. Just ignore me (already following :-) of course.

With all the talk I'm a bit confused if you are talking Blogger followers, or Twitter Followers. Took the plunge myself last week so that I could post Facebook messages if I choose. Now if only I could figure out how to post to Twitter from FB I'll be in clover.

Eighteen? Pfffft, I'm lucky to get that in a couple of months.

I'm tired too, but from school instead of kids.
Glad you guys at least had fun... I think.
