Here, there, and everywhere

Oh my lord, people, I have been so busy. We were in Rhode Island yesterday, and then we drove to Massachusetts to have dinner with my bother (HENRY!) in Well-to-do-sly. And then, TODAY I ran all kinds of errands (some of them in Maine) trying to take care of a few last minute things before we leave tomorrow for Illinois (via New York.)

That's a lot of states in a lot of days, and I think it's your duty to be impressed. But let us move on, shall we? Because this entry is starting to sound like one of those dreary educational games my parents used to make us play during dinner so we wouldn't start food fights. (Even though it looks wicked patriotic, what with the red and blue states.)

But my point is, I have been all over the place, and I'll continue to be all over the place in the immediate future, so why don't you try it, too?

Click here to see how Jen Lancaster has won the Barnes and Noble Prize for Literature, and here to see how I think Gwen Stefani spent way too much of her young years watching educational TV.

When she could have been playing geography games around the dining room table, that big loser.


  1. Okay, well some of those states have less square mileage than my suburban back yard, and therefore they hardly COUNT, do they? So points off for that, AND for not taking the opportunity to break into song, a la Geoff Mack's "I've Been Everywhere".

    But you get about 1,000 points for how much time you've spent in the car/minivan lately. So you've got that going for you.

  2. Yeah, yeah, yeah. We get it. Texas is BIG.

    And I DID break into song, or are you such a whippersnapper that you don't recognize my title?

    And I will break into song AGAIN when we drive through "Gary, Indiana."

    And what's with all the Dooce-style capital letters? I DON'T KNOW.
