Headlines + Humor
First, the humor...
1) I have no idea what 49Media is, but their webbot found my 4xFour Meme and featured Bloggin' Outloud on their daily roundup yesterday. Weird. (Caveat scriptum - Blogger Beware: other sites at 49Media are definitely not G for great or PG for pretty good.)
2) I am a goddess. I am not an html hack, I can't program anything let alone my microwave, and yet I am a goddess. Why? For having solved a major challenge that Shamalama didn't even realize he had. And for that he is forever in my debt. (:tongue-in-cheek:) Do not quiver in my presence, I am benevolent. Share in the riches of my bounty.
3) Image Source: Laugh Out Loud found by a random google search. I thought it was funny.
