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

If Only

AOL (yes, yes, I know some wits call it AOHell, but I happen to love my long-established AOL account) has a sign-on feature that often strikes the thought "If only..."

Down at the bottm of the sign-on screen is a little toggle box that says "Make me invisible at sign in".

Huh.

Sometimes I wish it translated into real life.

You canNOT bake like a fiend for your friends like you do then think you should be invisible!! You are an amazing mother, companion and incubator. What's wrong, friend?

Nothing's wrong, sugar - yesterday I had a case of the blahs, but today's just fine - it's just that I keep seeing that little toggle and thinking "Wouldn't it be nice, sometimes?" Then, too, I could get myself locked into the mall and have all the hot wings and Gyro wraps I could stand (and maybe raid the Godiva store while I'm at it)...not that I'm craving 'em, nope, not one bit. Ahem. Also, I will admit that the Universe occasionally takes too much enjoyment from mucking with me, and I wouldn't mind escaping its notice now and then.

Thanks for asking!
