Bad news dump day

It seems to me that the Libby verdict is so dominating all things newsy that today would be a grand day to dump bad news and have it completely overlooked. I've learned this trick by watching the way the Bush administration dumps bad news on Friday evenings, and during other big stories that drown out minutiae.

With this in mind, here are some unpleasant factoids about bhfrik that I should get out, but don't really want you to know about!

I am a horrible stand up comedian. I once tried it in front of about 200 people, bombed, and still have nightmares about it.

I bought the suit I wore at my wedding from Goodwill!

I routinely drive between 5 and 10 mph over the speed limit.

Despite my previous oft stated position on the matter, if my wife asked me with any conviction, I would be ok with getting another cat.

I told someone going door to door advocating for some local church that we were not interested because our home was Mormon. That was only half true, and I got the feeling that the person knew because she fixed me with this searching stare as if trying to discern the reason for my deceptiveness.

I am a very loud talker at work (customer service on the phones), and often apologize to my neighbors for being so overbearing. They always act like it is no trouble, but I'm not convinced.

I can't think of any other unpleasantness I need to dump. If by some off chance you have read this despite all the Libby news out there... now you know. If you never do read these unpleasant truths about me, it's not because I didn't try!

I loved the Mormon one. It reminds me of something that happened to me.

For years, we were regularly plagued by Jehovah's Witnesses, at least once or twice a month.

Finally, one day they knocked at the door and I invited them in with, "Boy, am I glad to see y'all. Come on in and let me get my Bible, I think I can help y'all".

This happened twice. They must have marked my house somehow, because I haven't been bothered by them in almost two years, even though I see them in my neighborhood all the time.
I just came upon your blog today, but it's sad that I had also looked around for what news was being slipped in under the Libby storm. How many people are thinking along those same lines, or worse, how many haven't even thought about it...
