Flattered into ACTION!

I did some googling on a lark the other day - my friend David Turner disclosed to me that he had recently discovered he was actually a raving Scientologist via google, and that Matthew is actually a golf aficionado (and now goes by "Matt"). It turns out Matthew was also one of the "bigger disappointments... in 2006," which, believe it or not, I didn't even post - apparently someone ELSE thought he was a disappointment too.

So, I thought I'd google myself, for fun, which I haven't done in a while. Now, the great thing about having a ridiculous name like "Robbi Behr" is that only some crazy canadian who's trying to do good for the world in Saskatchewan would also be named Robbi Behr. So save for a few inconsequential entries about him, there are eleven pages of ME ME ME. I'm, like, FAMOUS. Of course, we have to take into consideration that about 3/4 of the entries are either written by me or by matthew. There really is something to be said about 1. having a unique name and 2. writing about yourself all over the web.

Though, I'm a little disappointed to find out that all I'm doing in my other life is counseling families and stuff. I mean, what about golf? Or scientology? I'm so jealous.

Anyway, you might be wondering what I've been up to all this time that I've been away. OR, you might not be. Either way, I'm going to tell you. I was in England with the fam living out dad's dream of traveling the canals by longboat. You can read all about it on thebarnstorming if you haven't already. The highlight of the trip was when matthew almost fell in but saved himself by a dazzling spiderman-worthy leap onto someone else's boat. And then back again really quickly so that someone else wouldn't get mad at him for leaping onto his boat. In the process, he only dipped his feet and ankles into the hazardous blue green algae. It was a highlight because we really all spent the whole trip waiting for matthew's due disaster. It wasn't such a bad one, all told.

Since we got back, I have been suffering from a cold and the heat and have been moving like a little molasses. I have an overwhelming number of projects to do, and moving like a molasses isn't helping one bit. And yet, somehow I found time to google myself and write a long entry about it.

It's really all a part of my duty to maintain my own web presence.
To 12 pages on google and beyond!!!!!!!
