Compared to last weekend's orgy of blog material (thankyouverymuch high school reunion and half marathon), this weekend was more like an outing to a monastery. There were still things to do, but I kept my bodily fluids to myself.

Actually, that's not entirely true. Ever since last weekend, I've been a little under the weather and have been producing copious amounts of snot. Because I am self-obsessed and borderline sub-human, each time I blow my nose, I like to peek into the kleenex, to... you know, see what I made. This week my snot has been surprisingly gooey, the caliber of gooeyness that makes you say, "hmmmm, I'll bet this would be useful for something!", but I haven't been able to figure out what that something is.

I'll keep you posted.

Aside from that, it was business as usual in our household.

I'm still doing the PTA Secretary thing. Boy howdy, has that been a snotload of fun. Today, at a school function, I finally got some feedback on my work.

Parent X: Hey, Mike, I've been enjoying reading your meeting minutes
Me: Enjoying? Ok. Cool.
Parent X: Yeah. It's nice how I can actually tell when you get confused in the meeting.
Me: You need to end your compliments one sentence earlier.*

Super. I'm glad my summaries are so evocative, conveying both important meeting details as well as my mental fog. Bonus.

And finally, here's my very first YouTube video upload. If it's good enough for Google, it's good enough for me. Please to be enjoying footage of Daisy sparring with her best friend. As always, Daisy is the little one.

Daisy's high kicks are impressive!

I hope you feel better soon.

Great video, and I agree with J.R. -- Daisy's high kicks are impressive indeed. I'm sure your "surprisingly gooey snot" is impressive, too -- but no videos, please.

JR & VS, I think so too. I don't think she can actually injure anyone or defend herself with those kicks, but they are impressively high.

So I now know who gave me these germs!

Sara, check the American Medical Association Journal. Germs can't be passed by toilet seats or blogging.
