Got this email from my mom today, referring to her inability to find the new blog:
So you locked me out totally! Don't feel too good about that!
I called her right away. "Why do you think I locked you out completely?" I asked.
"Because I went to your webpage and it says 'MANIC MOM'S MENTAL MYRIADS IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION'!" She exclaimed.
Apparently Mom had no idea what my URL was in the first place--she would just go to my home web site and click the link to MMMM.

I just hope there are not too many idiots out there!

I stopped her mid-sentence: "You mean the kid who murdered his girlfriend's parents and then the girlfriend and the kid just crashed in Indiana? Those guys?"
I totally stumped her.
"How did you know about that?" Mom asked.
"Mom, you yourself know I am on the computer a million hours a day. The Internet has news on it."
Anyway, she continued, "Well, you know, those two kids, the one who murdered the girl's parents? ...
THEY WERE BLOGGERS!"
