Dislocated

Barney fills her with warmth

I’m too busy to blog right now, but not for the reasons implied by the above photograph. I actually have to move into a hotel for the next three weeks (long, ugly, frustrating, expensive, boring story). I’m taking a break just long enough to post an obscene picture to my blog and to tell you that I hope to continue blogging over the next few weeks despite my dislocation. The hotel is supposed to have internet access. The question is whether that’s just a marketing promise (like when they say “free cable” and you discover that all they have is QVC.) or if it’s something I can depend on. (For $125/night, it better be dependable.)

In addition to packing and a hundred other things, I have to configure the laptop with all of my blogging tools. One thing I won’t be taking is my collection of 1000 peculiar photographs (see above), so the articles might be a bit blander. Yes, I know it’s true. If it weren’t for the occasional obscene SpongeBob or Barney picture, you guys wouldn’t even bother with me.

I am not planning to caption the above photograph. I think it’s funny enough on its own. However, if anybody has something exceptionally funny, go ahead and post it in the comments. Speaking of which, I won’t be able to pick a winner in the Astroboy contest until I’m back home. You’ll just have to remain in suspense for a few more weeks over who wins nothing.

If the blog goes quiet for a few days, that means I forgot something I need or the hotel internet sucks. You’ll have to entertain yourselves for a few days until I can work out a solution.

    Teach the controversy: was it really a asteroid that killed the dinosaur, or was it syphilis?

    Ron – I’m praying for your safe return to your home and also praying that BoF doesn’t go down. So if both happen, it proves there is a god!

    “I love you…you love me…we’re a dysfunctional familyyy…” My son used to tell me that if he ever heard a voice like Barney’s on the playground he’d have assumed a sadistic, cannibalistic murdering pedophile was after him, and run like hell.

    Hope you get back home soon, and best of luck! When the site was down I feared the worst – that the fundie forces of ignorance had somehow succeeded in opening a black hole of vacuous stupidity that had sucked in all the intelligent, worthy blogs (for some reason I couldn’t load Pharyngula or a couple other science blogs either…but Huffpo was okay. Gahhh!)

    I don’t have young children myself. So I have no life experience involving Barney the Purple Dinosaur. But everyone I know who does have young children HATES Barney. There are no universals when it comes to personal taste — except that one. Children love Barney adults hate Barney.
