I'm so blue . . .

I am sick as a dog. I don't have the flu, but I do have one of the flu's kissin' cousins - just about as bad. I ache, I shiver, but I cannot seem to sleep. And so my mind runs amok. Scary. Here's what I have mulled over today.

I have discovered, after my last post on Dora the Explorer, that lots of people google for Dora info. These bored googlers have been visiting my sight in droves, wondering why Dora found religion. I've had visitors from New Hampshire, France, Dubai, and Israel. Since Dora is the second most popular Nick character, behind Blue's Clues, I guess that if I blog about both in the same post I could - just possibly - take over the world. (Cue evil laugh and "Pinky and the Brain" theme song.)

Since I can do nothing today (except maybe infect my whole family) Mrs. E has taken off with Lil'er E and gone shopping. I sit at home, so bored out of my wits that I am actually watching, nay, enjoying watching
this. That's right, it is the ultimate combination of sand sculpting and demolition: Sand Blasters 2007! In this competition, aired on the Travel Channel, 16 teams compete to build the best sand sculpture over two days. But, over these two days, five of the teams will have their work blown up and be forced to start over from scratch. Here's a YouTube clip of the excitement.

Enjoy my illness-induced boredom with me. Please. I'm going crazy here.

Wow, that was cool.

At the beginning, as they were building them, I was thinking "Hey, that's neat -- why can't I ever get my sand castles at the beach to be that big and stay together?"

But when they started blowing them up, I realized that this gave the whole sand castle thing a truly noble purpose. There are very few things in life cooler than slow-motion video of large things made of sand blowing up from the inside out!

Hope you're feeling better soon and that the Little E and Bitty E don't get it.

By the way, turn off the t.v.
