(air quote day)

So... it's been hot and mugg-city for three days... and the people at the weather service who spend the winter telling you "it's -20 out there but with the wind chill it's gonna feel like -35" who you want run over with your car... yeah, those guys... well, they're at it again with the (air quotes) "humidex reading"... as in "it's hot today... it's 30 degrees but with the humidex ... well, it feels like 42..." (and then someone runs into the studio and pitches the weather dude out the window.)

Dude... just say'en. If it feels like it's 42... it's 42. (tips hat to arthur dent).

We had a great wake up and roll today. :) No hassles... (I love that... :D)

~ black stripee ftls
~ dk green dockers ...
(I noticed, in some images from the get together on Saturday night, how little I like the way "docker" pants look. They've been a staple, vis-a-vee "inexpensive" and "readily available" but ... I'm going to have to go out and get new dress pants... because ... once you decide an article of clothing looks bad... you can't escape that notion!!)
~ new three tone dress shirt and a very new dk blue tie.
~ gap analisys continues between what my client has... and what they need...
~ meetings, and phone calls abound...
~ and all the while... home calls to me... "come and relax... forget all that work stuff... cook... be happy". Can you hear it?
~ tonight...? Did Medium have a season finale... yes eh... that one with the Texas Marshal in the hospital bed?
~ to remind lalaland... that I am stunned by how seriously salt n pepper my hair has become...
~ that ectv has a great time with her parents... :)
~ a very quiet little wish for psychomagnet... just because it's nice to keep her in my thoughts... :)

Imagine... as early as grade 4, children have to cut school in order to get the assigned homework done... Long gone, I suppose, are the days of cutting class because you wanted to play or get stoned... When the work load gets stupid for Geo... suz just goes into the school, finds his teacher, and chews him out till he relents... which is wonderful... but we know other moms who have honestly keep junior home from school... so she can do homework. Yikes....

... Busy day...
gotta jet. :)

see ya on the flip. :)

Oh Glovey....

hahahaha... not since 9/11 have the msnbc and cnn web sites responded so slowly...

My guess... Not guilty.

There's far tooooo many "reasonable doubts" in this story.

The reality? Micky J is one seriously bent human being and I have no doubt he wants sexual contact with those little kids, but he probably does not actually see how wrong his actions are.

End of the story? He moves to Europe and lives out the next four years before his gruesome murder trying to get Madonna to pay attention to him.
