I'm back, reveling in a quiet house that's tidy and almost clean (in an almost sort of way), and starting to work out the stuff I want to tell you about our stay at the Gaia Hotel in Anderson (the Cliff Notes version: LOVED IT). But I'm in this sort of argument with a friend over minions.
Yes, minions, and my claim to them. I say I have minions. My friend Dan Leadbetter, he says, NO WAY JOSE, you do not have minions. I thought about crying so I could put this argument in my WIN column and move on, but then I thought to myself, Self? -- that'd be me talking to me -- Self? You do SO have minions! And we can prove it to Dan. We can't Slim Jim Dan, since while he Twitters and podcasts and Facebooks he doesn't yet blog (unless I missed something?) so we can't exactly Slim Jim him . . . but we can do something else.
If you're, you know, up for it, and, you know, you have the time and stuff, and you're feeling like minions and all . . .
I want you to vote for Dan.
Or, if you don't want to do that, Twitter the link to vote for Dan. Or, if you're REALLY generous, you could do both. Skywriting is a nice touch, too. Or perhaps a phone tree. Let's show him that I HAVE MINIONS! Darnitall.
Dan is someone I've known
since high school, and he's one of those special people who lights up a
room, much the way that lighting a fart lights up a room.
No-no-no-no-no, I meant that Dan gives off an inner light and draws people to him like moths to a flame . . . so what we have here is:
Dan attracts moths. Dan is a woolly, glowing guy who attracts moths.
This isn't working. Can you tell I'm tired? Also, too? I had cereal for dinner. Please send help, Minions.

Please, if you are so inclined, click this link, go watch this one-minute video, which is Dan's on-line job application
TO A WINERY
(yes, I knew that would get your attention, most of you)
and we will PROVE to Dan that
I HAVE MINIONS.
Vote once using each e-mail
address that you have! I can't vote anymore or I would. Dan would make
a fantastic marketing person for Murphy-Goode Winery. Of course, I have no way of counting
all y'all, but I plan to take FULL CREDIT for ANY votes that Dan gets
in the next couple of days.
Dan, if you're reading this? Knock 'em dead, Dude! And let's do lunch. I'll have my minions contact your minions.
