Helen Thomas' worst nightmare

As I'm sure you've heard by now, Fox News anchor and commentator Tony Snow has been tapped as the new White House press secretary. I've always loved Snow's genial persona and his sense of humor. This morning on the news, I also heard he has a rock band. :-) I love this guy!

Priceless quote from Snow's latest column:

"Helpful correspondents have told me where to go, what to use to fill various orifices, which pack animal I most closely resemble and my next-world destination."

The big reveal

Contrary to eHarmony's TV ads, yes you CAN meet your soulmate on those competitor dating sites.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you "R", better known as Rich. Rich is the brainchild behind Brain Squeezings, a consoisseur of all things geeky and perhaps the best thing to happen to me since ... uh ... ever.

I do not exaggerate.

How in the world I found someone as quirky as me who actually holds down a job and is normal in all the right ways is beyond me but very well may be evidence of Divine Grace. I know for sure I've done nothing myself to deserve a man who is gentle, thoughtful, brilliant, hilarious, sensitive, brave, considerate, passionate, moral, handsome, creative, affectionate, tender and, of course, geeky. But God is in his Heaven and all is well with the GGB.

Although more updates are to come, I reckon this to be the final leg of the journey to Happily Ever After. No more frogs, please. The Prince has arrived. :)

I'm blogging again! Alert the media!

Geez Louise. No posts since March 4. You'd think I was involved with a man or something ....

Oh! I am. Yes, folks, "R" is still VERY much in the picture. I was even in Pennsylvania over the Easter weekend to visit R's parents and sundry relatives and friends. This is the first time I've ever plunked down money for airfare to meet a boyfriend's progenitors, so mark this one down as a Big Deal. We are not formally and officially engaged, but there is talk of bling, and I've already sent him some JPEGs of particularly desirable bling. :)

I speculate that a generally happy life leads to less blogging. I am having a harder time getting cranky about Iraq or Hillary Clinton or the immigration issue -- although that last one can give me a headache-and-a-half if I think about it too much. In fact, lately the biggest thing I get worked up over is why American Idol's Kellie Pickler insists on being such a ditz.

(Yes, folks. During my horrendous case of sinusitis in February, Fox was the only TV channel I could pick up clearly in my old bedroom back at the parents' house. AI sucked me in like a wind tunnel and I haven't been able to reach escape velocity. Even R and I watch the shows together. Taylor Hicks' spasmodic rendition of "Takin' It To The Streets" had us crying in hysterics. Good bonding time.)

Would the GGB readers like to know who "R" is? He has a blog himself, ya know. Perhaps it's time for the reveal. :)
