How did I do that? By subjecting you to Charles Barkley's mug for ten days straight. Sorry folks, but some weeks I simply don't have time to sit down and write anything substantive; for those periods, I use Twitter.
So, I owe you something better to look at over the weekend. The good news is, next week's schedule looks a little bit better. Have a great weekend.
What can I say…it's Friday afternoon and I'm in the mood for a laugh!

What? There's no apostrophe? Oh…
I don't know why that title popped into my head while I was watching last night's Republican debate, but it did. Actually, it gives me the opportunity to let you know that I'll be collaborating with some of my colleagues to write a book for the State Bar of California that is expected to be published next June. I'm a bit shy on details at the moment, but I'll let you know as soon as I know. I've bitten off a fairly large chunk of the project, so it looks like I'll be busy writing soon.
Lest I ever forget I live in Los Angeles – where everything's overblown – I was recently reminded. Only in L.A. does a drizzle become a storm and a weekend freeway closure for a bridge demolition become Carmageddon (insert foreboding music here).
This method guarantees dismissal from jury duty, however, it's somewhat drastic.
Normally, this would be relegated to the 'Twit List', but I'm making an exception. A lot of people are still laughing about this issue…but is it funny? Let's review. A guy initiates some sexting, takes a few raunchy photos of himself and…that's about it. Unfortunately, this guy happens to be a U.S. Congressman, but a couple of weeks ago, that was his claim to fame. Now, look at what's changed:
- He's disgraced himself and embarrassed his family
- We can only imagine what his wife is going through (and a newlywed, no less)
- He's resigned his prestigious position
- A novelty company has created an X-Rated doll to mock him
You know what else? He could be you. What's the only thing that distinguishes him?
Welcome back from your holiday. I doubt I'll have time to post the next couple of days, but there are three new additions to the Twit List. A quirk in my blog software prevents me from providing a direct link to my custom-made lists, but you can find it on the left sidebar.
We have to ease back into the work-week, don't we?
