When Greenie Talks People Listen

I was watching Alan Greenspan on TV this morning. Talking about interest rates, the economy, inflation, deflation, and a few other big words to which I am not really privy. I guess it's safe to say, when Greenie talks, people listen. But it's also true that they get out their dictionaries in a futile attempt at following along with the esteemed Fed Chairman. I wish I could grow up to be like him, but I have too limited a vocabulary and I could never spell. I was talking to a friend today about Greenie's talk and I said that, I believe, he also speaks Spanish. I wonder if he uses big words in Spanish too. Just an interesting but passing thought.

Ken has written to inform me that Ted has been let lose on the Texas coast. Apparently, he has embarked upon a road trip to Corpus and points south east, in an attempt at capitalizing on the lucrative vending machine market which exists on the Gulf Coast. That or, he's bored and can't think of a better way to make money. Either way, according to Ken, "I can't wait to hear the stories he'll tell when he returns...and yes, he will probably return, so your prayers won't be answered :)" Rats! Foiled again.

So, what he have here is a state of inflation coupled with a lack of Ted. Hmm. Perhaps I should blow off work this afternoon and go shopping. Now, that's macro-economics for you. Let my people go! Leave us free of your shackels and chains and let me loose in Target. I need a new razor.

Speaking of razors, my has recently blown up. I know this sounds rather odd, and I know there's more of a blog enry in this one but, I have an epilator which has recently shorted out and now I need to replace it. Several of my friends have commented, upon viewing my razor, that it appears to mirror the shape of a dildo. I'm not making this up. Has me kind of bummed that it's shorted out. I mean, how in the world am I supposed to find another epilator in the shape of a dildo? Now there's something I bet even the Super Target doesn't carry. Um, often.

Still, all of this talk of Greenie, macro-economics, Ted, and my razor has me wondering. What, exactly, is a dildo shapped like? Please don't write and tell me because, frankly, I just don't want to know and, despite my proclaimations of being innocent, I've enough of an imagination to venture a guess without any help.

Until next time, this is Carol, the Carol in "Carol's Little World" signing off.
