A place to indulge my narcissism... and write stuff...

The Ombudsman

I’ve got stuff to do today and not much time to write, so I’ll take one of the easy ways out. No, not a sock drawer cleaning, but a review of recent comments and questions from the adoring public:

“You are strange.”
Yes, but as an apple that didn’t fall too far from the tree, you should just embrace it.

“Is Kyle holding a NYC rat?”
A rat? Uh, no. We forgot the doggie bag. That would be his movie replica “Voldemort” wand.

“Wow. My heart skipped a beat when I saw you in this video. You’re still adorable.”
Thank you. My videocam is a non-Canon HD model, so it does capture images very clearly in their adorable splendor.

“SHE’S SOOO CUTE!!! I produce beautiful offspring.”
As do I.

“Technically speaking – birthdays mark the end of a year – not the beginning.”
Thank you for reminding me I am already in my 50th year of life.

“Please tell me a duet was involved: “S-U-P-E-R…”
Not that I recall. Here’s some video of the event I found over at tmz.com:

“Any chance we could get through to the primary without too many of your play-on-words about ‘Hilary the woman’ versus ‘Hilary the candidate’?”
No, no chance. The fact Mrs. Clinton is a woman and Mr. Obama is African-American is relevant to their candidacy and make their efforts historic. I will be quite happy with either as President, but the gender/race issues are very real and will be a significant factor in the general election. Is there some particular policy issue of hers you’d like dissected? As for the play-on-words, I do make an effort to add entertainment value to my posts, and granted, the wordplay is of questionable um, value. If you think they are no good, just write that.

    You’re effin cool dad. Really, you SHOULD write a book. About random shit, because you write about random shit and I always love to read it.

    Uh, okay, so I did a quick scan and did not see any witty comments about Mr. Obama being an African American, so that must mean you are only comfortable with selective stereotyping…I know a few woman who work as “equally” hard as their counterparts of all shapes and sizes and colors that find it rather insulting that what they are most known for is being the “token chick” versus someone who makes a positive difference.
