Okay, Ron, you're on. You're one of the most creative souls I've read in the blogosphere, so I'll feed you ideas as I get 'em.

How about The Top 10 Worst Error Messages to See on Your Computer Screen?

As for my kids being embarrassed...fortunately, my son is 23 and in another state, and my daughter will be 21 in October and never wants to move away (please, God)...so I may have the opposite problem!

1000 points for Libby. And the points don't mean anything. That's right, the points are like Madonna's next obscene stage performance. I mean really, is it even worthy of page C3 of the Bumblyburg Gazette?

That'll teach you to give me a hard time, Heather. Now behave or I'll make your link go to the Hillary Clinton presidential election campaign website.
