Top ten excuses why I didn't blog while I was away

  • 9. My mom has dial-up internet access and I might have stabbed her computer and then we would have fallen out.
  • 8. I was dazzled by Steven's first beard:
  • 7. I was attempting to go CSI on some fisher tracks I found near the house: A what?! A fisher: Yes, I sprinkled ash on the tracks and blew. No, it didn't work.
  • 6. I read 14 books. Steven read 27 issues of Sports Illustrated and one book:
  • 5. Monitoring the alarming rate of grey hair growth on my head is a full time job.
  • 4. Calvin needed airplane rides:
  • 3. I slept, on average, 100% more than I do in Edinburgh.
  • 2. Sledding: Playing in the snow: 'Nuff said.
  • 1. The airline lost my mojo.
