    What if I carefully take a hammer 'o sledge to them instead?

    Trips to Wal-mart always make me sad. People shopping in their jammies seem to be more common every week. o.O

    If not, take him to the beach anyway. And then feed him to the sharks.

    Bos always has the best smileys. I'm jealous.

    Yeah, I was in class explaining that a certain noun needed capitalization and a "the" and I stopped in mid sentence. I realized that yeah, it was googoo. It took a few more minutes to realize that the layout was off and may have made a difference. So, I'll concede defeat in the Seuss Wars.



    And where do you get the cool smileys?

    Cool-ish. Similar to New York, temperatures vary anywhere between low 10s (Celsius) to single digits. It's a windy town as well, so dress for that.

    Ali! I was getting lonely, thank you for showing up. I know, I'm like a 5 year old. Maybe that's why I get along so well with the little one.

    Morning. Looks like Fen is here too.

    I think there are about eleventy billion things on my to do list today , so I may just apply procrastination to the whole thing. I bet my protestant work ethic kicks in again. Must train harder to make it lapse.

    Yeah, Fen is here too. Can I get all now? or should I go back and sit in the corner like a good boy.

    Maybe I'll do the corner thing. It is 5:36 pm, I can go home in 54 minutes. I wonder how many words I can get done in that time.

    This is first draft/detailed outline level stuff, so quantity is good as long as it is going in the right direction. Real work comes when this part is done.

    ETA The bouncy bouncy smiley is because both Ali and Fen are here, I have two people to talk to. It is not because I prefer Fen over Ali. I must be tired, I'm getting over-whatever. I'll go back and sit in the corner.

    Good idea - wordage, go for it. I am in for an exciting day of watching himself tearing his remaining hair out because he has decided to reinstall Windooze on the other computer.

    I am staying well clear

    I'm having the lousiest month

    I am back to daily migraines, my gall stones are acting up painfully, in addition to the food allergies I also have an intestinal inflammation, I have a sore tooth as of yesterday, in addition to my normal 12 hr work day I have a shitload of corrections to apply today to a job I did a few weeks ago, and the corrections are in bits that were previously accepted and they aren't explained so I'm left staring at notes like, "wtf does he mean?", my fellow council member just up and quit, leaving us in quite a bind because there's nobody to replace him, which will make the coalition lose its numbers advantage...

    And worst of all, I can't stop crying about Timmy.

    I have no energy left. I want to not be in my life.

    Anything else I say will just sound silly, or worse. There are more of those available, just poke me when you need one.

    Something fun we'd do when the movie was in theaters the first time, as people stood in line, was walk by, talking about wanting to see how well they made the ship sink.

    I actually heard people yell "Thanks for ruining the movie, man!"

    I've only got 9 days left of this. I ain't waiting any longer than that.

    And congrats on the house!

    I did all the laundry yesterday. Phew. Of course, that doesn't mean that the clothes are all put away yet, but it's all clean. That totally counts.

    And I'm out for a while. Gotta get dressed, have an early morning tour of the hospital to go to.

    People do everything in their jammies around here, it seems. Wait, that might be because I live too close to redneckville...
