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 Don't Have a Title for This

Scene: Not quite seven...the AM one, when I am usually still sleeping because I went to bed a few hours before. Bedroom, light filtering in through the blinds and half-drawn curtain. Footsteps thud down the hallway as the Evil Genius scampers into the room and launches himself onto the bed.

EG: Mommy, are you ready for Animal Show?

(Aside - Animal Show is when he clambers into the bed and we pretend to be animals and wrestle for a bit.)

Me: Sure, Little Dude.

EG: OK - you be a hermit crab and I'll be a stingray.

Me: OK

EG: Uh...Mommy? What's a stingray?

Me: Remember the teacher in Nemo? He's a ray, a Manta, and a stingray is kind of like that.

EG: Oh. OK. But I'm no ordinary stingray...

Me: Oh?

EG: Yeah - I'm David Hasselhoff!!

Good grief.
