Things that make you go "hmmmmm," yes indeedy, and other stuff too.

OK, so, the news are reporting that John Mark Karr was arrested in a case of domestic violence involving an argument between himself, his father, and his girlfriend.

Yup, the guy who was reportedly obsessed with the murder of JonBenet Ramsay, and sent all kinds of really, really, REALLY weird emails about his relationship with her and other little girls. He has a girlfriend.

I just want to shout across the internet to her, whoever she is, whatever she looks like, however she met him, and say, "Honey. You can do better."


Busy day of walking dogs mowing lawn running errands, and I was cruising over by the coffee shop and there was the Bloodmobile, so I got to give blood, first time in a long time. I am now a TWO GALLON DONOR. They gave me a fake tattoo and now all I have to do is figure out the best time to deploy it. Even better, they gave me a heart-shaped squishy thing, not the anatomically-right one, but very cute anyhow. And I am about to enjoy a bowl of low fat chocolate ice cream with no guilt whatsoever.

AND the dogs decided that, after a rainstorm and drop in temperature, they needed a second walk. Those two little 14-year-olds have walked two miles today. I am tired. They want to know what we're doing now.

Have been working on a post inspired by reading Mike Jones' book (he's the guy who revealed that evangelical leader Ted Haggard was living a double life, enjoying gay escorts while purporting to be a happily married father of five). There are those who would make Jones into a hero; I don't think it is that simple, and I'm not sure that the sort of "reduction" that is actually part of making someone a hero is in Jones' best interest over the long haul. Hopefully I'll get the post done soon. Though if those little old dogs keep demanding an escalating amount of walking, heaven knows. I am so thankful for them and the company they bring.
