Glob anniversary

I just noticed that yesterday was the fourth anniversary of this blog. This is the 1,496th post. I've attracted over 58,500 visitors--despite the fact that I no longer try to post every day, I no longer post much about what I'm doing (I now use Facebook and Twitter for that), and I seldom post reviews of anything. Still, people keep coming--an average of 40 per day. So I must be doing something right. Thanks for visiting.

Plat du jour

I see Lubby? I club by? I have no idea.

And her dog ate her son's genitals

Expert: Dog could have severed boy's genitals

Everyone seems to be blaming their pets.

Dear gym teacher of 1984, Sorry I went along with the 8th grade in calling you Thunder Thighs. Please know I have them now too. Love, me.

Plat du jour--guest submission

This is better than 3BRATS, I guess. Found by Joanne.

Semi-random thoughts

● Why are the plums I just bought more ripe than the remaining ones I got a week ago?

● We arrived back at Penn Station at exactly the same time I was finishing the first Harry Potter book. However, unlike Harry in the last scene in the book, we did not come in on track 9 3/4.

● How did I get a subscription to Rolling Stone?

● My doctor is happy with my blood sugar and cholesterol numbers. So am I.

● I got a notice of our health insurance renewal. Our rate is going up 17%! Granted, it did not go up at all last year, but this is very high even over a 2 year period.
