Great article
Salon.com Sex | Mike Ditka wants to help you score
Very funny article deconstructing ads for ED pills. And since it has become increasingly clear that I am the one man left in America who can still get it up, I'd like all the ladies to take note of my email address at the top of the page.

The State of the Blog
There's been some really nice weather out there, and as a responsible Dad, I've got to take the little boo out there to frolic. Plus, Unreal Tournament was just released, and it's got enough material to keep me busy until the wedding this Summer.

Speaking of the Wedding, we are working on our homemade invitations. Don't get nervous - it will invite you to PDX on 7/17 for our Picnic Wedding in the Park. We'll also spruce up the website a bit with info. Email any questions.

And on Sesame Street, I think I'm understanding Cookie Monster better. He's not just the god of Gluttony, encouraging children to reject their healthy breakfast and beg their parents for cookies. No. He is the joy of indulgence. Little Boo laughed like hell today when cookie Monster finally gave in and devoured the cookie which he was not supposed to consume. And since (in addition to McDonald's) today's episode is brought to us by the letter G, Cookie Monster got Gassy. I'm serious.

Sesame Street
Remember when Sesame Street used to be brought to you by say... the letter d and the number 6? Well, now it's also brought to you by McDonald's, complete with a McDonald's commercial before the show starts. The world has changed. And let's all give a big hug to the Republicans for cutting funding to PBS. Now their good friends at McDonald's have some choice access to very small kids' minds. I love it.

More News from Sesame Street
Every day, there's a Segment called "Journey to Ernie" in which Big Bird spends time looking for Ernie. Now this worries me because it seems that Ernie is spending far more time with Big Bird than he does with Bert. Has something gone wrong between Bert & Ernie? Perhaps they have an open relationship?
