Boy Glues Himself to Bed to Avoid School

A 10-year-old Mexican boy glued his hand to his bed to avoid going back to school after the Christmas break, authorities said Monday.

"I thought if I was glued to the
bed, they couldn't make me go to school," the boy, Diego, told AFP. "I didn't want to go, the holidays were so much fun."...

...Palacios said her son smothered his right hand in industrial glue. She found him watching TV with his hand stuck to the bed.

"I don't know why he did it," she told Reforma. "He's a good boy, but mischievous like all kids."

Hey, it's National Delurking Week!

Doesn't it seem like this holiday comes earlier and earlier each year? I haven't even finishing taking down decorations from last year's National Delurking Week.

National Delurking Week, apparently, is a manufactured holiday in the blog world to try get more people to comment on blog sites.

I'm not sure I completely understand the reason for the parody here... but click on the Excerpt from the Book link and give it a read. Then somebody please tell me that I can purchase it... because that is funnier than any children's book I can buy on Amazon.com


I've tried to win one of these turtle paintings with colors I like on ebay at least a dozen times, but I always end up dropping out of the bidding when it gets up to $200 or so and a little voice inside my head goes, "It's a painting by a DAMN TURTLE!" I mean really... couldn't you just buy a whole turtle for less?

You could not, however, buy
an elephant for less.

Hint, hint, KoH... perhaps a present for National Delurking Week? I would name him Stompy and take good care of him; he could sleep in my bed.


I think I need to step away from the computer now.
