* My son is now standing up, albeit with the assistance of whatever is within reach. This has created a new challenge. Instead of crying himself to sleep while lying down in his crib, he stands up, clutching the bars like a mini-felon, and cries. Last night, he had his eyes closed, like he was sleeping, while he stood in his crib and cried. Standing up, dead asleep? The only time that happens to me is when I hear Dick Cheney talk. Dick, you rule the free world, speak up!
* I saw on the Drudge Report that there will be some Kerry infidelity allegations coming out soon. Does anyone doubt that this will be the ugliest campaign ever? Let's do it all: Kerry's girlfriends, Botox, surgery, and money grubbing vs. Bush's AWOL status, cocaine use, insider trading allegations. Wonder why noone's voting? The only thing I'm bummed about is that Jerry Springer declined to run for the Senate seat in Ohio. Given the celebrity culture in politics and the mud wrestling tone of things, he'd be perfect.
* I wish I had one of those little webcam things so you could see the bags under my eyes. Take the mouse you use for your computer and hold it under your eye. That is what one of these bags look like.
