I’m supposed to be writing test documentation reports right now. Only I’ve got the beginnings of some dumb parody song stuck in my head.
Squiddo is selling chocolate to raise money for summer camp. I brought one of the boxes to work. On the way in, before I dropped the boys off at school, “Do You Wanna Build a Snowman?” came up on the shuffled play lists. So of course my brain started coming up with alternate lyrics. I need to push this off the stack so I can go back to the reports I’ve got to get done.
“Do You Want to Buy Some Chocolate?”
(To the tune of “Do You Wanna Build a Snowman?”
Do you want to buy some chocolate?
It’s a fund raiser for my kid.
He wants to go to summer camp
so he’s selling sweets
to help him pay his way-
It used to be much cheaper
to go to camp,
but now it costs much more!
So do you want to buy some chocolate?
It doesn’t have to be some chocolate,
I’ve got Twizzlers, too.
I promise this is the LAST time I’ll be doing a post like this…
To the second. (Or near as I can get using WordPress)

“It’s a boy or a girl, we don’t know yet.”
(actually, we do know – this was said before we found out)
When giving good night hugs:
“Good night baby in Mommy’s tummy, I love you. I’ll see you in May.”
“When the baby is ready, Mommy will go to the doctor, and the baby will POP OUT of Mommy’s tummy!”
When I grow up I’m going to be tall like Mommy, and Daddy, and “Buppa” and “Gramma” and Auntie Polly

XKCD is a great web comic. I’ve been sent links to individual comics by friends in the past, and I started reading it regularly a couple of months ago. My only regret is that I didn’t start following it sooner. Hooray for archives!
As many people know, my wife and I are big fans of the Harry Potter series. We’ve both been re-reading (and re-listening to) the series in preparation for the upcoming book and movie. Right now, I’ve got Harry Potter on the brain, so when the Del.icio.us Random Page bookmarklet brought me to a neat Newspaper Clippipng Generator this morning, the first thing that popped into my head to write was an article from the Daily Prophet:
My wife is convinced that Harry Potter will die on his birthday, so I took that idea and ran with it. I don’t have any reference material with me right now, (the books are at home,) and I’m too lazy to go searching on teh intarwebs, so some of the names are probably misspelled and/or flat out wrong. I couldn’t remember the name of the “current” minister of magic, so I wrote around that with a lame joke about Fudge.
Let me just say I have no inside knowledge about book seven. I am not connected in any way to J.K. Rowling. I have no idea what is going to happen. I’m just some goofy fan of the books. The clipping you see above is really just me rambling. It’s barely edited, and incomplete. If I get ambitious, I might try re-writing it and making a complete article. I have a couple of other funny (to me) ideas that didn’t fit into the space allowed in the clipping.
Ok – so I suspect that I’m going to get more than a few hits to this post. Welcome one and all. Feel free to post a comment. (Let’s put that spam filter through its paces.) What do you think is going to happen in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows?
Is that even possible?
Ok, ok. As horrible as I think MySpace is, there are a couple of cool things about it. One of them is the video I just found of “Weird Al” and Seth Green chatting. Check it out.
