Friday Filler- When MJ Came to Springfield

Thank Grog It’s Firday!!!!

In full disclosure, I am writing this before the actual Friday, as on this day (which is Friday, and isn’t Friday because I’m writing it early) I will be at Disneyland, with Debbie, the love of my life, Alissa, Riley, Andrew (the love of Alissa’s life) and most likely the Wookster (the love of many people’s lives)…and maybe even (he keeps saying 95% chance) Safi!  I love Disneyland. I mean…it IS the happiest place on earth! And let’s face it…we could all use some “happy” right now.

I love Disneyland almost as much as Katie (my recently married middle daughter) loved Michael Jackson when she was little.  I mean REALLY loved him. He came to play with her almost every day. She loved his teeth. She loved the way he chased her around the back yard… She loved the way he was there, whenever she wanted him to be there.

I admit it. I was a little jealous of Michael.

Homerpalooza 101: Neighbor Actions Act 2

Homerpalooza – Act II – The Math to Getting It All…

First of all…to recap from the “Act II Calendar Post”… DON’T KILL THE MESSENGER (Me!) when you see the numbers. As you all figured out, numbers, just like our perception of reality are all relative.  What seems to be harder…is more of an exponential mind-freak…in that even though the goals are  a LOT higher per day…the rewards for tapping and earning have increased at the same, if not higher increments.

So… for those who want to “cut to the chase” and don’t care about all of the minutia and detail involved with breaking out the math of each quadrant…I will simply say what I say in almost every update- LOG ON AT LEAST FOUR TIMES A DAY AND DO THE BASICS…

There. You can stop reading now. Or at least some of you can stop reading.  For those of you who continue to ask, “But why???” and “But how????” and “When are they going to bring back Otto???” I will continue down the road to minutia…which is long…and peppered with redundant road signs.
