Mum likes reading, decorating, shopping with the girls, and Starbucks. She also feels funny writing in the 3rd person. Papa (also known as Sparky) is currently looking at me with a blank stare having asked him to add something about himself to the blog. (Now he wants to say something) The only thing he loves more in life than music and Coke is his wife and kids. (Awww...) :) Little Lotte is a genius on the computer and makes me fall over laughing every day with her quick wit. She loves computers and animals. Sweet Pea abandoned her family and moved to Phoenix for work and is now married as of 2/28/06. She is beautiful and smart and the most nurturing person I know. She gave me the greatest gift ever when she made me a grandmother. I am the proud Mum Mum to Andrew Christopher. There are no words to describe the joy of having a grandson!

In Palin Language

I found the most recent interview with Sarah Palin and Katie Couric to be scholarly and cerebral so I am going to water down the interview's important parts to help YOU make an educated decision on November 4th.

Katie Couric: The lobbying firm of Sen. John McCain's campaign manager received payments from the controversial mortgage giant Freddie Mac until last month.

Sarah Palin: Did not!

Katie Couric: Did too!

Sarah Palin: Did not!

****************** ****************** ******************* ***********************

Couric: And when it comes to establishing your worldview, I was curious, what newspapers and magazines did you regularly read before you were tapped for this to stay informed and to understand the world?

Palin: I've read most of them, again with a great appreciation for the press, for the media.

Couric: What, specifically?

Palin: Um, all of them, any of them that have been in front of me all these years.

Couric: Can you name a few?

Palin: I have a vast variety of sources where we get our news, too. Alaska isn't a foreign country, where it's kind of suggested, "Wow, how could you keep in touch with what the rest of Washington, D.C., may be thinking when you live up there in Alaska?" Believe me, Alaska is like a microcosm of America.

****************** ****************** ******************* ***********************

Oops, the above was NOT written by me but the ACTUAL words that vomited out of Sarah Palin's mouth. I don't think it can get much more simple than that....

For goodness sake, Sarah! Newsweek! Time! The Enquirer! Goodnight, Moon! Just name something you've read!!!!

And this whole idea of "gotcha" journalism... since when is a voter asking a question and you speaking the first thought in your head "gotcha" journalism? It wasn't Katie Couric that asked that! And if it was, that is EXACTLY what the media is SUPPOSED to be doing -- asking questions so that we, the voters, know what YOU, the running VP, believe in.

I can't wait to see the debate on Thursday night.

Sarah Palin reads:

Moose Hunt Quarterly (only for the recipes)
PEOPLE (who say no to that bridge to nowhere after they initially say yes)
Pageant Queen
Debating for Dummies
The National Enquirer (only for the horoscopes)
1001 Banana-clip Hairstyles

wait for it...
