    What was the flame war about?
    "Life isnt divided into genres. Its a horrifying, romantic, tragic, comical, science-fiction cowboy detective novel. You know, with a bit of pornography if you're lucky."

    It started out about women and technology. It ended up being about whether I had an overdeveloped ego, and whether my respected opponent had a microscopic penis.

    the answer to the second question is, "Yes." I make no secret of it. His trouser size is only speculation on my part, but I'm betting "yes," too.

    It was a draw, more or less.

    My sister always said the best way to deal with a posturing male was to laugh at him. So I left off with a laugh.

    Morning cantinas

    I got woken up at damn it's too early o'clock by the rain then again half an hour later and again an hour after that. So as you can tell, it feels like Arizona around here.

    Usual stuff today: making bread, decorating cupboard, honestly, how can something 2feet by 1.5 feet by about fifteen feet need so much work? There will be plotting as well.

    Is there any ?

    My neighbor, also on the town council, went into cardiac arrest this morning. He was reanimated, but unconscious and his heartbeat was very irregular. It doesn't look good. He needs prayers and good thoughts.

    Good Morning Friends!

    Being woken up by a charlie horse is never good. And I was so comfy on the couch too.

    Got one last shopping trip to do today in baby prep. So, as a reminder, if you don't hear from me for a couple days, y'all can guess why. I have a good feeling about this weekend.

    I think the men of the Cantina usually don't posture in the way you are speaking of. As a guy, though I don't speak for all, I hereby give you permission to treat that kind of posturing as you see fit. Next time take notes though. I find that kind of stuff entertaining.

    I have just discovered the evilz killer pain of doom. It states on the side of the can 'May cause drowsiness and dizziness'. hmm, nothing about making your eyes sting like teargas then?

    I shall be using this in a story.


    Good luck to Kricket and Fen, best wishes to 10s neighbour (wonders if 10s neighbour is 11 or 9 or possibly 12), anyway sending all good thoughts your way 10s.

    It took 2 years to get a Masters degree. 9 hours every Saturday with no breaks.

    Two weeks is a walk in the park.

    I suppose that's true. You do what you have to do, after all.

    I'd go back myself, but I can't afford it. Irony is, if my position is ever made full-time I'd probably be able to just take classes, but as adjunct I don't have that option.

    Of course, I'd probably need the M.Ed. before they'd let me become full-time, too, so there's no way out of that particular Catch 22.

    10s, prayers.

    I've just made me an omelet with ramps (wild leeks) and feta. It's the start of the "Ann eats like a foodie" season, since the farm share (CSA) has started.

    Fen, I hope the date goes well!

    I'll be off to ballista practice in about an hour.
