and not one post for today??

I couldn't let it happen, but I'm also very tired, so here is today's post.

Here's a link where you can go play games for free.

Also, go here to learn about Coney Island's former town of little people, Lilliputia. For the record, I like the word midget, even though I know that's wrong. Personally, I think dwarf is highly offensive, who wants to be a fairy tale creature? The word midget just sounds cute to me, but they don't like it, so I try to say "little people". Which I also think sounds kind of condescending or demeaning. There's got to be a better term. I have always had a fascination with little people, and it's probably politically incorrect to even have that fascination, but whatever. It's not in a mean way, it's in a very friendly, interested way.

Yep, that's it, just two links.

Sorry I suck today. If it makes you feel any better, I got a ton of "real life" stuff done.

I know, I know, it doesn't make you feel any better. Me either.

There's always tomorrow.

I've always thought of them as the "Vertically Challenged". Feel free to adopt the term.

Don't worry. We still love you!

Can you talk about in another post how hard it is to type while you're buzzed? I'm typing this for you now and woo-hoo it's taking me a while--lots of backspace and delete--OMG!!!...I enjoyed a few beers on the patio tonight. LOL. I'm sure you've been there.

I digressed. We do still heart you and understand when you need to get shi* done around the house.

I am SO fascinated by midgets too - I think it embarrasses my friends!! We can be politically incorrect together - cause I think "dwarf" and "little people" are MUCH more offensive. But then again, I am sized more like Gulliver....

There was an area where I used to live in Virginia where the little people all lived together. There were blocks and blocks of houses that were "little people" sized -- houses proportionally made for little people. It was crazy! Of course, big people would come and gauk which pissed the little people off and fights ensued.

Have you ever watches that "Little People, Big World" show on TLC? It's pretty fascinating sometimes. I find it so weird that they have a set of twins where one is a midget and the other is normal sized. And the midget twin is their only midget child, even though both parents are midgets.
Wow! I didn't think I would ever use the word "midget" so many times in one comment.
