Man, dudes. I musta come down with a serious case of writer's block or something. No new blogs since July!?! Unheard of.

On the upside, it means I'm getting other stuff done in lieu of blogging; on the downside, it means a lack of good linkage, and for that I apologize.

Moving on.

Today was my baby's first day of Head Start. She was soooo excited to go -- I mean, she got a backpack out of the deal, so she was pretty stoked about the whole idea of school -- and once we got there she gladly left mommy to play with the other kids (which kinda broke mommy's heart).

But then there was the pickup. She was happy to see me, didn't hesitate to stop what she was doing to pack up her spiffy new backpack and was very ready to leave. We get in the car and the first thing she says is "Why did you leave me there?!?"
Me: "Because Mommy can't stay at school with you. Mommy has to go to her own school and to work."
Her: "What's wrong with Pam's (the babysitter) house? I just want to go there tomorrow."
Me: "You have to go to school. That's what little girls do."
Her: "I hate school. I'm done." Then she sat in the back of my truck with her little arms folded and pouted all the way to the babysitter's house.

Day 1 and she already hates school. She's so her mother's daughter.

I too went back to school this week. Pretty easy schedule this semester, and Psychology of Human Sexuality is a bitchin' class. But this does mean that I won't be as active here on the Rage until about December, so bear with me if PMs and whatnot aren't answered as quickly as during the summer.


Now, some long awaited linkage:

-- Dudes, we totally missed Sysadmin Day. Also, I really want a cubicle doorbell.
-- Neighborhoodies is badass.
-- Sweet Notecards (the Expressions Notecards are my favs)
-- It's not too recent, but I found this study rather interesting.

Stay classy Ragers.

Wow, that sounded more funny and less creepy last night. That'll teach me to night-blog.

Yeah, it's a government funded thing for poor people like me. Wikipedia has a surprisingly good article about it. => Head Start

I'm gonna have to pull her out of Head Start and put us in some witness protection-like thing....
