As far as your comments go – the more the merrier. Knock yourselves out. Margaret and I appreciate the attention. Really we do. But you have to remember that besides a considerable number of years on this planet the only additional information we have access to is the same information you have access to: We read. We listen to the radio. We watch TV. And we apply a little common sense. We are more than happy to hear opposing points of view. We certainly don’t profess to be perfect. For example, I thought some of you were leaving comments about a bunch of flightless birds that were somehow being starved to death by Sarah Palin. Margaret had to explain to me that those would be Emus but you are talking about a serious issue in an Alaskan village called Emmonak. It is located in the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta and some people who live there need our attention. Who knew? You learn something new everyday… and really isn’t that the point?
So in the spirit of learning something new everyday, Margaret and I each decided to write about something new we have learned recently.
I did a little research and besides learning that Emus are the largest birds native to Australia, I learned that Ann Coulter is one nasty bitch with really, really big feet. Now her being a nasty bitch really isn’t anything new. After all, this is the woman who got upset that some of the women who lost husbands in the 9/11 attacks were actually supporting John Kerry for President. Coulter suggested that they were self-obsessed women who didn’t realize the attacks were against the nation as a whole and not just their husbands. She went on to call them harpies whose husbands might have been wanting to divorce them anyway. Well that my friends is one nasty bitch… but you knew that. Nothing new to report here.
Now the big feet part is really just an opinion. My daughter-in-law attended the US Open last year and said she saw Ann Coulter sitting a few rows over. She noticed that Ann has enormous feet. But enormous would be relative based on my daughter-in-law’s personal experience about the normal size of a woman’s foot. And maybe her having enormous, Emu-sized feet is a new fact for you, but it really isn’t much to write home about. In truth I don’t even know the actual size of an Emu’s foot, however, I would imagine it is large… even compared to those gigantic hoofers on Ann.
But I really did find out one new fact about Ann Coulter. New for me anyway. I did a little research and found out her middle name is Hart. Now that is Hart not Heart. No “e”. But trust me on this one. When it comes to a heart, she is missing more than just the letter “e”.
Helen, dear, there hasn’t been a day in my life that I didn’t learn something new. Now mind you, it’s not always something news worthy but I do learn something new everyday. Just yesterday I learned that I get an additional percentage off my grocery bill when I use their nice new canvas tote bags. I had been using them anyway because I was so tired of all the plastic bags that I have acquired over the years. I used to have a special drawer in the mud room where I would stick all the plastic bags. However, that soon became filled and I decided to have a nice new kitchen trash can just for my plastic bags. Well, that worked fine until my Howard kept emptying his plate and any other trash he could find into my nice new kitchen trash can. How he didn’t see the large red “Plastic Bags Only” sign I put on the swivel lid is beyond me.
Anyway, if your local grocery store offers you canvas tote bags instead of plastic bags do take them up on the offer and ask if they give you a discount for using them. It really is a good idea. Now, if I could just remember to bring the canvas bags each time I go to the grocery store that would be something.
One other thing I have learned recently: Ass Hats like feet come in all different shapes and sizes, dear.
That’s it…I’m done.
Well, I think we are done for today. Thanks for stopping by again. Now go out and learn something new. We mean it. Really.
