I *heart* Magnets

I love magents. I really do. I don't know if it's their ability to suction mysteriously to the fridge (much like I do late at night), or if it's because they can be so fun and kitchy. My favorite fridge magnet? One I got from the National Archives in DC: it's a picture of Elvis shaking Nixon's hand. The pairing just strikes me as odd, and I get a little kick out of seeing it everytime I open the fridge door.

But I am not waxing poetic about magnets for no good reason; au contraire, I have my motivations. See, Amy over at The Lawson's Do Dallas is offering free magents to those who post links to her blog and give her special shout-outs. So, go visit her if you haven't already and have a good chuckle over some of her antics.

If I had been innovative enough, I might too have done something promotional to promote hits on my blog (I am whore for visitors, that's fo sure); but alas, I'm not crafty enough, or clever enough, to come up with an idea like that, and I certainly am not capable of manufacturing magnets (although, some sneaking suspicion tells me that Amy will be violating child labor laws in the manufacturing process; she strikes me as the sort to take advantage of her young son's tiny fingers to produce those promised magnets; but, whatevah! I'm all for puttin' those delicate fingers to work if I get my magnet outta the deal) -- and you people sure as hell aren't getting my Elvis & Nixon shake hands magnet!

Child labor is GREAT! I'm working on getting my own army of workers. Who needs a maid when you can have your own flesh do it for free :P

Yeah, if you are going to start bagging child labor I can't come here anymore. Dang, you did a full on post, I just put her name in there. Gotta rethink my magnet strategy. I wonder if mine will be small now?

I hope there comes a day that Grace can focus on a single task for more than 23 seconds, and we can actually get some work out of her. If I could figure out how to display an episode of Dora on whatever it was I wanted her to do, I'd have no problem. Geez, come to think of it, I'd be RICH!

J-mom cracks me up... "I wonder if mine will be small now!"


I don't have kids, besides the ones at school. Hmmm. Instead of forcing them to do "educational" activities, I could have them working for me. Their parents would never know!

Glad your getting a new magnet ;)
