Stuff That Came Out Of My Head

"The time has come," the Walrus said,
"To talk of many things:
Of shoes--and ships--and sealing-wax--
Of cabbages--and kings--
And why the sea is boiling hot--
And whether pigs have wings."

— The Walrus and The Carpenter by Lewis Carroll

My son noticed that the toilet in the downstairs bathroom was running the other day. He decided to see if reducing the water pressure would help by closing the water supply valve a little. It didn’t work and the valve began to leak. You’d think that a house that is less than 50 years old wouldn’t have these problems, but in the past month we have replaced the plumbing under the sinks in two bathrooms already. So cut to the chase, five trips to the hardware store later we were unable to obtain a new valve that will fit on the end of the pipe. The plumber will be here in the morning.

So that was yesterday. There were snow flurries this morning, but alas I slept through that. My son was happy though. It is his birthday and he was as giddy as he was twenty-odd years ago when he prayed for snow in April and got it. At the time we were suspicious that he had a direct line to God.

I’ve been thinking of ways to get more people to read Rachael’s blog. Then I realized that she already had a way to increase the number of visitors. All I need to do is use some key words in a paragraph that are being searched on the Internet. So if I write something ( Donald Trump) that is totally senseless (furry toe fetish) or completely (naked goat sex) out of context, I just (Oregon Militia) might generate (blonde chicks with guns) more traffic (Islamic gay porn) on the site. Well it’s a thought.


  1. Rachael tells me that this post generated about 20 hits. LOL I guess I p**d a few people off.

  2. Genius! Does it work?
