How three year olds answer questions:
Me: Okay Luke, What kind of cereal do you want? We have Oatmeal Squares, Cap'n Crunch, Frosted Mini-Wheats, Rice Chex, and Frosted Flakes. Which one do you want?
Captain Canada, eh? →
The Captain America movie got me wondering if there is a Captain Canada. There is. Egad.
My favorite colors are blue, green, and kangaroo.– My completely sincere son caught in the midst of a weird and perfectly harmless, but funny, Freudian slip.

One is the loneliest number.
Egad. Doing fake radio solo is a tough gig. Hope Face is back next week.
Friends, or just Facebook Friends?
Social Networking is an interesting animal. On one hand, it’s cool to be able to catch up with people from your past that you might never have seen again…then again, have you ever been looking through your Facebook Friends and thought to yourself…I have no clue who this person is.

Comcast Guy: Keep in mind, you can cancel this at any time, and it only costs 9.99 more per month. The first month is free, so you could cancel it with no obligation, and again, it only takes a moment of your time.
Me: Plus another "moment" of my time to call and cancel just so that I can get a few extra channels that I won't watch for a few weeks? Remember how I just said that I don't really watch TV much at all? I don't think that sounds like a wise use of my time for the hassle involved, Rick. What do you think?
Comcast Guy: Well, I'm very sorry to hear that. Goodbye.
Also. My name is not Greg, Kristen. Let’s work on the reading comprehension, okay?
Unknown (and unwanted) caller: Hello, my name is Kristen, and I’m with the National Research Foundation. May I talk with Greg Dodge? Me: (Pause for a second.) Um…No. Kristen: Okay, goodbye. Sometimes it’s just that easy, folks.
I think I have a problem.
Is Words With Friends more addictive than crack, or just as addictive? I downloaded the thing last night, and my last two evenings have disappeared into a cloud of letter tiles and triple word scores. It’s official…I’m a nerd.
My nephew is really good at tackling. The NFL is currently considering fining him for his actions.
Did you just call me Chinese?!? SAY THAT TO MY FACE!!!– a sleep-talking Royal Family Kids Camp Camper who shall remain nameless, but who cracked me up nonetheless.

Totally going off the grid.
The day after I discover Tumblr, I’m going to be going completely unplugged for five days. I’ll be a counselor at a camp for Foster kids, which should be challenging, but awesome for my personal growth. See you internet kids Friday night.
