Back to work!

First of all, I am featured in the March issue of Good Housekeeping, so if you're coming from there, hello, and welcome! Here is the unedited version of the post featured in the magazine. It is longer, more rambling, and employs some of your milder curse words.

In case you're thinking of it, dear readers, I want to assure you that you don't need to send me hate mail. I already received one this morning, and it was a doozy. She covered all the (insane) bases. (The insane bases, in case you're wondering, are 1) first 2) triangle, 3) Sokar, Egyptian Lord of the Mysterious Region, and 4) ham sandwich. Never play baseball with a crazy person. This is my Public Service Announcement for the day.) So I'm good! Thanks, though.

In other news, I have a Wonderland post up today. On circumcision! Apparently I am courting controversy these days. Next week I will write about puppies and rainbows. And how they both should be outlawed.

I'm glad so many more people will be introduced to your blog! I still think about a post from I don't know how many years ago. When Henry was saving you from sharks, and held your face and said "Mama Mama Mama." Delicious!!!

Hate mail? About ham? I am so jealous.

Barbara, I think I love you just a little bit because, Yes, exactly, obviously bacon is the best Pork product ever!

And I don't know my Egyptian myths as well as my Greek ones but this Sokar guy sounds a little fishy to me. But I have been wrong before.

Oooh! Fame! Somehow I see you as more the New Yorker type but GH works too.

Maybe you can answer the question: Why does Good Housekeeping seem to know so much about all the problems I'm having? Seriously, it's kind of weird sometimes.

I don't mean to be snarky but I love this line from the article on Oprah's weight loss:

"We must face the truth about why we eat. And it can often be painful."

You mean, we don't actually need to eat to stave off hunger and death? Think of all the money I could have been saving!

I'm seriously peeved about not getting my comment in on the Wonderland topic of circumcision. If I were really pushy and the type of person to take advantage of commenting here, I'd comment here.But I'm not, so I won't.Even though I have three boys.I have to go now before I do it anyway...
