    I'm moderately surprised the "Should gun laws..." thread is still open.

    read this on grantland today.. it was a good chuckle..

    Best thing about working 4-10 (13) hr days are 4 day holiday weekends.

    My old municipality instituted the 4 day work weeks after I left. If they had that when I was there I might not have left!!

    I agree. I am surprised anyone took the bait.

    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    I heard about it on NPR the other day, it sounds entertaining! I doubt I'll go to the store in my bathrobe after reading it, but I could use more reminders to focus on the "here and now."

    It depends on how the sockpuppet is used.

    RJ won't stop singing to his iPod and I am f*cking losing my mind, never mind my patience. I hope I don't get indicted.

    edit: plus he stole my lighter.

    I'm in the doghouse. My version is, if you can't sing, you can't sing. God knows I never try, but then, my mom never told me I could sing.

    Learn to respect your elders you must.


    I'm a slimy, bottom-feeding scum-sucker, but I'm not a catfish.

    I would like to meet. I expect to be in Cocoa Beach next January, but that is about as close as I will get to your area in the foreseeable future. Are you ever coming to the great northwest? Plus we're only a 12-hour drive from SF. And about an hour from the Oregon wine country.

    Gramps, we'd make the run to Cocoa next year. We'll keep that in mind. I've never been there.
    The northwest? My eldest son moved to Portland last week. The 8-ball says a trip out there is likely. See you soon.

    Last night's Random Thought:

    The urge to cough increases commensurate with the determination not to wake the person sleeping next to you.

    Another thought:

    Why is it that I can fall asleep on the couch with the TV on, but when I go to bed and get under the covers, I can't sleep?
