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

Tibi gratias agimus quod nihil fumas.

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

"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

School Daze

Today and tomorrow I'll be schlepping to the Ren Fest for School Days, the only two weekdays the fair is open so that area schools can have field trips there.

Did your school ever have a cool field trip like that? Yeah, neither did mine.

Anyway, for five-and-one-half hours a day, we'll be hawking our wares to several thousand school-aged children and the four chaperones with them. I've been told it's Hell in a corset, and given the knowledge I have of the kids in our local educational system, well...lets just say I'm glad I'll be armed, if only with my teeny cheese knife. Heh...I must remember to photograph my teeny knives...they're the silliest things I ever saw, but they're wicked sharp and legal to carry.

I am going to try and find some new boots or shoes so T can have his back...although, I should just keep his since he lost mine. And they look good on me. Really good. I seldom say that.

So wish me luck as I spend two days dodging future terrorists, spree killers, and politicians while attempting to sell them glass-art jewelry they can't possibly appreciate...except for the home-schoolers, who will, of course, be awesome. Not that I'm biased or anything.

I envy you not the myriad fledgelings to herd...

well, ok, with a sharp object to aide, a bit o' envy could mean 'appreciative'...

Care to model an oversized "T"-shirt along with the boots?
I'd buy a calendar...

:D

G'nite, Lady K...

Poor Cygnus...should some beknighted camera survive the taking of such a photograph, I fear the Blue Nowhere would crumble to dust at the posting of it, so for the sake of the World's sanity, I will refrain from even contemplating the act.

Bless you for the thought, sugar...but some mysteries are best left as they are.

Meanwhile, I wish you the sweetest of blessed dreams, sir. I hope you find what you seek...

Shade and Sweetwater,
K
