I think that what the world needs is to be just a little less judgmental.
For instance, I think we can all agree that if a middle-aged woman has an extremely itchy tattoo scab on her buttal region, then people should not make the ewwwwww face if she gives in and discretely scratches said buttal region.
I mean, sheesh, I waited until I was outside of the grocery store and in the privacy of the Marnmobile out in the parking lot. I can't help what the woman parked beside me in the truck saw. It's not like I dropped trou or anything--I just scratched an itch.
COULD WE HAVE A LITTLE COMPASSION HERE?
Oh, and speaking of compassion, how about that Bluesphere Awareness campaign? (Don't try segues like this at home without adult supervision. Remember, I'm a trained professional.)
Here's the deal. Anytime you buy anything on-line at Amazon through Blue Sphere, Amazon gives 5 per cent of the sale to Blue Sphere. That 5 per cent is donated by my fellow CanuckistaniCuppaJoe to the Foster Parents Plan of Canada.
It's stuff you were going to buy anyway, and 5 per cent of what you spend goes to help poor kids. It doesn't cost you a cent, because the money comes out of Amazon's profits. What could be neater than that?
Look, I know that not everyone shops on-line. But it's important to get the word about Bluesphere out. So between now and Dec. 31, if you post a Bluesphere button on your site, you get a chance to win delicious Canuckistani hot chocolate!
I know. I can hardly believe it myself. I have been religiously posting the Bluesphere button because, well, much as I like to pretend that I'm a compassionate person, frankly I'm in this thing for the hot chocolate.
Wait a minute.
If a bunch of people sign up after reading this, then the odds of me winning the hot chocolate drop.
Okay, here's the deal. All that stuff I just wrote about compassion, helping poor kids at no cost to yourself AND getting a crack at some delicious hot chocolate?
Just focus on the bit about the butt scratching, 'kay?
Want to delve into my sordid past?

This template is a riff on a design by the truly talented Quinn. Because I'm a html 'tard, I got alot of pity coding to modify it from Ms. Kittay, a woman who can make html roll over, beg, and bring her her slippers. The logo goodness comes from the God of Graphics, the Fuhrer of Fonts, the one, the only El Presidente. I smooch you all. The background image is part of a painting called Higher Calling by Carter Goodrich which graced the cover of the Aug. 3, 1998 issue of The New Yorker Magazine. Kids, don't try viewing this at home without Netscape 6 or IE 4.5+, a screen resolution of 800 X 600 and the font Mead Bold firmly ensconced on your hard drive.
