It's time for a Thursday 13 of breaking news items. But it's Saturday, and it's only 5:37 in the morning, so let's just do two, to start us out.
1) The Department of Homeland Security out of Alexandria, Virginia visited my site at 08:59:06 last night. WTF? Are all blogs routinely monitored for terrorist content, or have I been singled out as particularly subversive?
2) o.b. tampons: I thought it was just me standing in store aisles, glumly wondering where they all had gone. This week I dumped out all the contents of all my handbags and scraped together enough stray o.b.'s to get me through a couple of days, but they are gone-gone-gone from store shelves. An official statement from o.b. yesterday says they will be back on the shelves soon, but it's been a long couple of months without them. Meanwhile, people are making a killing on ebay.
Okay, back to sleep. This up-with-the-sun shit is for the birds. Love you.
