And I Thought He Didn't Love Me Anymore...

...Robbo hasn't been around in a long time. So long, in fact, that I decided to go back to my husband. It was beautiful while it lasted.

Well, just as Mr. unclimber and I were settling down to a nice reconciliation, this pops up. Not only does Robbo seem to be showing some interest, he's inviting me into the mud-wrestling pit with some minx named Ann. Well, Robbo, if thats what it takes...

Seriously, I think it would be so much fun to go to a cocktail party filled with Ann's commentors. FUN people, I think. At least it would be a packed party, unlike my little soiree over here at unclimber. Wow, and I was worried that I'm a control freak.

Now, if you don't screw up your kid at the tender age of 5 or 4 or 3 by institutionalizing them, then, yes, you will have a Nailah. But I wouldn't believe it either if I were them. Many kids in school do have interests as diverse and deep as Nailah's, they just don't have the time to pursue them since so much time is spent lining up, shutting up, and filling in bubbles with no. 2 pencils.

Those commenters do seem so fun. And slavish in their devotion to the almighty Job. They should try out Eleutheros' take on Babylon. No wonder I stay on the farm.

Whereas the comment sections at the LLamabutchers more closely resemble a knock down drag out rumble at the Chucky Cheese (from the best selling video When birthday parties go bad...Yuppie Parents Gone Wild)

Steve, looks like you've got yourself a new money-maker! Don't you have to offer them t-shirts, though?

Thanks, CG, its always nice to know I'm not alone. A farm sounds really nice...

My 9 y.o. unschooler is currently finding out all about Wolfman Jack and the 60s and 70s radio scene. I'm thanking my lucky stars that she's into music I can tolerate and even enjoy from time to time!
