Quote of the day...er...week...umm...hey, look, a quote!!

Tibi gratias agimus quod nihil fumas.

It says "...freedom of...", not "...freedom from...".

Nolite te bastardes carburundorum!

"It's amazing to me how many people think that voting to have the government give poor people money is compassion. Helping poor and suffering people is compassion. Voting for our government to use guns to give money to help poor and suffering people is immoral self-righteous bullying laziness. People need to be fed, medicated, educated, clothed, and sheltered, and if we're compassionate we'll help them, but you get no moral credit for forcing other people to do what you think is right. There is great joy in helping people, but no joy in doing it at gunpoint." - Penn Jillette

I Saw the Sign

Have you ever seen hobo signs?

They're a bit like tagging, only more communicative and they don't piss me off.

I dig hobo signs, and recently found a website chock full of them. How cool!

No, my geekery knows no bounds.

So, anyway, if you're interested in hobo signs and what they mean, here's a nifty site for you: Hobo Signs.

I've often thought of making a "Kindhearted Lady" sign for my house. Shut up. I am too kindhearted. I doubt a hobo would ever see it - we're not exactly in the midst of a human migration trail or anything - but it'd still be neat.

I should make a "Housewife Feeds for Chores" one. I totally would.

Okay this was awesome. After my kids and I read them all and I had to explain hobos, the depression and why 2 ladies would be living together (son said 'oh so that is so the hobo knows the are gay?')....I am thinking of making my own marks for 'BLOGGING HOBOs'...ya know like a pencil would mean 'loves comments' or a P with a line thru it would be 'not political'....

Yeah. I may have to post this idea. Then i am sure it will take off like gang busters. whatever a gang buster is anyway.
