It's Day 2 of the Blopathon, and I'm pleased as punch. Eden reports that there are hundreds and hundreds and billions of blogs signing on for a month of keyboard pounding. Bloppers are poised to funnel many, many hours into writing and reading and commenting on blog entries, and away from other pastimes, like work. I'm telling you now: Watch corporate earnings reports for 4Q06. If companies start revising their EPS estimates downward, you'll know why.
I'm also ecstatic to tell you that for the first time since before I can remember, I am operating on Eight. Uninterrupted. Hours. Of. Sleep. All I can say is that I finally got religion and decided to crash early. I watched Lost with my wife (who was a blubbering blubbertons during that final scene) and went to bed, and the next morning -- glory of glories -- I was awakened by my alarm clock, instead of by a child doing a half-gainer onto my sternum.
Today has been amazing. Food tastes better! The air smells better! Politics seem less strangled by special interests and dominated by petulant millionaires smearing shitballs up each other's noses!
OK, that last one's a reach.
I suppose we'll have plenty of time to discuss politics until Election Day. In the meantime, do you suppose someone could fill John Kerry's mouth full of jujubes and stick him in a closet until Wednesday?
