    Of course he was smiling. I was smiling when I read the story and I didn't have boobs in my face.

    In the movies every little Texas town has a strip joint. I'm sure it's just like that in real life too.

    Heard at the memorial service:

    Uncle Bobby died with a smile on his face.
    Dad died doing what he liked best.
    My brother Robert died while helping others. You see he was in that place to talk to these young girls about getting real honest jobs.
    My cousin Bob's last vision on this earth were things of beauty.
    I guess it was a clear example of coming and going at the same time.

    I would still be a loyal catholic except I was physically assaulted numerous times by the nuns and know several priests who practiced pedophilia with the tacit approval of the bishop.

    Here's a question: Will TerraSapient come back and talk about the annular eclipse? Outer Space is lonely for it's talk show....

    If I had one, I'd send a distress signal into the wormhole and ask TS when she might return to the conversation.....

    I did 6 yrs in Episcopal school and never liked the forced-religion concept. I never took the kid to church (although my mom did a couple of times) and have always told him, it's up to him to decide. Even at that, I got him a kid's bible and other religious books, because even if he's not ultimately a believer, it's important that he know the basics (just like knowing Dickens, Hemingway, etc) in order to converse intelligently.

    Almost forgot to note that RJ came home from work this morning. Looks like he (or something in his contacts) scratched his eye. This happened once last year, and it appears to be rather painful. He leaves for work around 6, and I had a slow start today, so I'd just shucked my clothes around 8:30 to hop in the shower, when the bedroom door flew open. I screamed and was across the bathroom to grab my robe before I realized it was RJ rather than an intruder. He went to bed way early but said his eye was feeling better the last hour or so.

    Welcome to the exciting world of being a city bus driver. Now you too can share in the sheer excitement and joy of being a bus driver as TMI Softwear introduces...BUS DRIVER!

    Okay, maybe not, but notice all the cyber women were kinda hot.

    I hate when my body thinks it is a Friday, but it is really only a Tuesday. I blame the weather or my kids. I am not sure in which order.

    Isn't that a rotten feeling? It's like adding four Mondays to your week. I never seem to be able to shake that feeling until quitting time on Friday - the real Friday.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    I am considering it. I need a day off after last weekend's vacation.

    The girls got school, so no reason for me to take it off. Plus my 3rd grader has her regional spelling bee that morning. I'll probably head into the office, go to the spelling bee, then go back to the office.

    And our closing on the house was pushed back to this Thursday, so I'll probably be taking time off that day.

    I've gone biking the last two weekends, combined with some BBQing/beers, so I know what you mean.

    We all have off on Friday. We have a weird floating holiday that moves every year to a different three-day weekend, turning it into a four-day weekend. I'm taking Tuesday off too.

    In Massachusetts, there's probably a bunch of odd Revolutionary War-related holidays that gives them this entire week off, like Paul Revere Day or Dolly Madison Day.

    I am taking all day Friday. The question is whether my deck collapses before I can dismantle it. This past weekend I made best friends with my hammer, cat's paw, and a wrecking bar. 100 square feet of deck boards removed, 600 square feet to go. Whomever framed the deck was a jackleg idiot. It might take all weekend ... and the forecast is for mid 90s heat. FML.

    Really? That is the perfect reason to take it off... more time to do things you want. Like burp and scratch yourself.

    Me. Half day. The first half of the half day will consist of a department meeting and will be followed up by a picnic in the park with all our families.

    After the picnic my family and I will be on our way to Lawrence, Mass. for the long weekend.

    I need to find a natural comfortable environment to read in



    And what could be more natural than reclining in a giant wooden "U" shaped objet d'art?

    Does it have a TV and surround sound? If so, that's a pretty nice chair.

    It's amazing all the simulators there are nowadays. I am eagerly awaiting the introduction of the: shoe sales, alphabetizing file folders, and drinking a glass of water simulations! Think of the possibilities - why just the drinking a glass of water simulation alone has limitless potential to engage, inform, and entertain.....what type of glass do you want to use? Oh, you'd rather use a mug, you say? Sure, but what size? And are you going to walk to the refrigerator for a bottle of water or go to the sink and fill up with tap water? Hell, you could even get your water in different virtual environments. Maybe you'd like to drink water from a fountain in an office, or perhaps out of a canteen outdoors?! Boundless possibilities I say. Boundless.
