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

Long Haul

This is a pre-written post, because today? Today I'm spending ten hours in a van with my family. More importantly, I am spending ten hours in a van with a bright, active, inquisitive, active, sweet, active six-year-old Evil Genius.

The words "good luck and god speed" don't begin to cover it.

Y'all know that I love my little dude to distraction, would face down a tiger or rhinoceros or IRS agent for him...but this is going to test my endurance.

Luckily, we have books - he reads on his own, although he likes me to read to him because I do voices - and we have art supplies for the car. There's also the Didj, which Leap Frog?? Genius!!! The kid loves his Didj...I just wish the thing had a car adapter so we didn't have to go through so may batteries on the go.

Mum bought a travel DVD player recently and she's bringing it along. Clever Mum.

I may survive, after all.

I'll post tonight if I can - I am hoping the motel had wifi or dial-up or smoke signals or something.
