So today is B's 2 month birthday and we went for her checkup. She is now 9 lbs. 14 oz. and 22.5" long. That makes her in the 26th percentile for weight and 58th percentile for height. Basically, she's a baller.. tall and lanky with a wicked fade away.

For the past couple days I keep smelling my Gramma. Not that I'm leaning over and actually sniffing her, but that I'll just randomly be walking through the house and smell something that makes me think of my Gramma K. I have finally deduced that it's my hair. I bought new shampoo on Wednesday and I believe that is the culprit! So now I'm incredibly curious to know if my Gramma uses Pantene.

Travelling always provides new insight into our immediate changing culture. Airports allow people to exchange ideas with little caution. Either motivated by the absence of security or alcohol, people are almost encouraged to converse with other travellers, sharing self-promoting stories and random political views.
For the last 36 hours I have caught TV stories on the popular news channels, in airports and hotels, discussing the political race at hand. In California, the overwhelmingly popular story has been Maria Shriver backing Obama, while The Governner is backing a republican.
But the consistent theme in all of the stories, in all of the coverage, is not what is best for the country, but "Who is Going to Win."
Our culture's obsession with American Idol is a clear indicator of the common man's dissatisfaction with average. The sad part is not that we are dissatisfied, but that we are unwilling to work hard for something great. We are more willing to trade hard work for a lottery ticket and a tryout for fame.
That being said, this political race has been turned into an American Idol season with 5 candidates left and Wolf Blitzer as Ryan Seacrest. I don't think that the American people care what their candidate does if they get elected. They just want to go to work the day after Election Day and brag to their co-workers, "My Candidate Won."
It is a competition for CEO of a country that is for sale, driven by the media who does not care what is best for the country, who does not care who wins, just how many people watch it happen.
