    Some day my job seems like I am trying to drink from the fire hose and only getting a drop of water here an there. I look at my friends that are working as consultants or for the dark side and sometimes wonder what if...

    I have that thought a lot... Unfortunately I think I would dislike working for most investors even more than I dislike being under the thumb of a City Council.

    "Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

    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 forgot these were in the dresser drawer...

    ...a pair of arctic camo pattern string briefs. Actually, very comfortable. I promise not to post a picture.

    I rechecked. This might be a swim suit because the front is lined.

    Really? I could not get into any of the songs. I listened to the whole CD, and then returned it to the library without uploading any of the tracks.

    I normally try not to give too much information, but let me go ahead and just admit that I never - like ever - get tired of nekkid boobies. Ever.

    Nor do I tire of women yelling out when they see the boobies.

    I own (on google-play) the "Modern Warfare" episode of Community (you know, the paintball one from season 1) and have watched it probably 50 times. I'm so lame, but I think it's so funny.

    I'm not a big fan of the Inquisition threads.

    It seems they've turned into either/or questions or how silly can I be questions, or just really random stuff that I'm not sure why anyone would care about.

    Whew!! Glad I got that off my chest. I won't mention it again.

    I don't read them, or post in them, because I don't have time to read through all of the questions/answers....

    I'll send potentially confrontational emails late on Friday afternoon so I don't have to deal with the consequence until Monday.

    I tend to do the same thing and then nervously check work email all weekend.
