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

The Continuing Adventures of Flat Aunt Becky

When Aunt Becky sent me her cards, I bet she didn't know she was starting something...epic. Too late to get 'em back now, Aunt B - you'll just have to suffer...muahahahah...ahem.

So, on Thursdays I often spend the evening at Borders with a discussion group. FAB decided she had to come with me - she thought it would be a novel experience. Ahem.


We were hungry, so we wandered through the cook books. When we saw the picture on this one, we both swooned.
FAB said this next one was sacrilegious.

"There's life beyond takeout? I don't think so!"

Then we found the one that made FAB weep tears of joy...

...because obviously.

We finally had to repair to the cafe for reinforcements.

Poor little bagel, never stood a chance.

She really is enjoying herself. Show us more! And has Aunt Becky, the real one, seen her adventures?

Mizz Braja, I don't know how she keeps her figure! Good thing they didn't have sausages there...

Mum, she has seen them and I'm not dead yet, so I think we're good. :-)
