Some of the Dumbest Things I Heard This Week

Mark Wahlberg said this week that if he would have been on one of the planes on 9/11, he basically would have killed the terrorists and saved everyone. How insensitive and purely stupid! Click here to read the whole story and how he apologized. Well, thank God for that. That was dumb, Mark, really, really dumb.

Equally dumb was Newt saying he wanted an "open" marriage to his second wife. Now this second-ex-wife (what a title and a statement) comes out with all kinds of negative stuff about the speaker. Newt, I'm sure you realized all this would be found out. You should've been nicer to this ex-wife. And, really? An "open" marriage? That's just dumb, Newt, really, really dumb. (It really makes me not like Calista.) (Story here.)

A Ron Paul supporter backed up traffic for hours with this hot air balloon. The balloon was set up in the middle of the road during rush hour. Duh. I'm pretty sure if I was on the fence about whether or not to vote for Ron Paul, this would have made it a definite NO. (Don't worry. I was never a Ron Paul fan.) Way to go, guys, way to go. Dumb. (Story here.)

And, on the home-front, I haven't run since Saturday (unless you count the lame mile I ran at a snail's pace last night ... I've lost my mojo.) ... dumb, dumb.

This made me smile...which I needed because I have a barfing kid.

I've lost my running mojo too. It's -15 here and we got 6 inches of snow yesterday. Grrrrr.

All of these stories made me giggle and shake my head. You are right! Dumb dumb dumb!

As for the running, I haven't run in a LONG time so my mojo is probably talking to your mojo and they are eating chocolate and having a diet dr. pepper together :}

On the other hand, I do count running errands as part of my "running" workout ;0}

open marriage boggles my mind. can't imagine women who voluntarily sign up for that one. exercise? i stand by the fact that i'm waiting for the 'resolution' crowd to fizz out at the gym. ;)
