Oh hi.

If you’re here tonight, it means you probably saw the segment about me and my family on Nightline. So, welcome to the blog that started it all!

Let me show you around.

First off, you might be wondering about the coming out post that began this whole process.

I posted it over a month ago, and then it went viral. It’s the thing that will answer most of your questions (if you have any) and you can find it by clicking here.

If you don’t want to wade through the thousands of comments on that post, but want to leave a thought for us about it, feel free to do so on this post. (But, I’ll tell you what, there is always a distinct and obvious difference between commenters who have read the coming out post, and commenters who are just going off what they think it might have said–so if you’re going to comment, I’d recommend reading it.)

Before that post, The Weed was primarily (and it still often is) a humor blog. Here are a few of the most popular past posts if you’re in the mood for a chuckle:

Bambi Nuggets
Previously the most popular post on my blog, in this post my daughter and I discuss the tragedy of Bambi’s mom, and the resultant conversation turns my blood cold…

The Time I Almost Played Trivial Pursuit with Ken Jennings
Spoiler: I’m really bad at trivia…

Morning Run
Yeah. THAT happened on my morning run…

Celebrity Crush
How can I can compete with this guy? Answer: I CAN’T.


All right. Hopefully that gives you a taste of what you can expect ’round these parts. It’s pretty much a regular riot, with a lot of talking about homosexuality, and a lot of hilarity surrounding my kids and stuff.

So, yeah, welcome aboard! Or at very least a hearty thank you for dropping in and taking a gander.

(Oh, and if you want more regular updates, I just started a Facebook Page so I’ll post a bunch of crap there and it will be awesome.)

All right, I’ve gotta post this! Someone out East just texted me that the segment’s on. (I won’t get to see it for a few hours because I’m in Seattle, so instead I’m going to go put two rascally girls to bed and be really nervous and sick to my stomach for a couple of hours. Later!)
