Ok, no... I haven't replaced GTT with FuckOff Thursday... I'm just say'en ... people don't give each other the finger enough. It's soooooo unacceptable.
We should work on changing that... because YOU KNOW in your heart that giving the finger is ... well, ... it's a blast. Flipp'en someone the bird can be a sign of affection or just a friendly moment. It (the bird) is best done at a friend behind the back of someone who looks as though they squeak when they walk... Like in an elevator or at a meeting.
Make it your mission for the day... hand out the finger to a few friends, be sneaky about it... and keep the smile on.
It's been hot lately... not psycho arizona 100+ hot... but Ottawa hot, and this morning dawned with a little sweet relief in the form of a nice breeze that, sadly, promises rain. The weather idiots have... just no clue whatsoever. They were all "it's gonna rain mid day" yesterday... then "it's gonna rain later in the daytime..." then, of course, "it'll rain in the evening". It never rained yesterday. Now they're "it'll rain all day today"... and, of course, it's dry out there. But the wind promises rain and I have no doubt it'll come.
After kids were a'bed... and z was well recovered from her 10 k race... we settled in to watch some 24 and managed to see the last 15 minutes of last nights aborted episode and another 15 minutes of a new one... then ZONK. She was out like a light. Ah well... We'll try again tonight. :)

Happy Birthday redfenix... and may your arms never run out of wolverine-shoulders to wrap around. Have a wonderful year sugar-red.
and to a very treasured friend... Happy Birthday almost-a-mommy ... blonnie. I've been tracking with you for so long... it feels like I do really know you. I know I only get little bits of you through here... but you share enough that I am quite confident when I say you are a truly wonderful woman. I wish for you the greatest of happiness on your birthday and through out the year ahead. (and that's a safe bet... all things considered... - looks at your adora-monkey tummy).
You know... watching Loose Change - the movie about various conspiracy theories associated with 9/11... really made me think about ... Kennedy and the grassy knoll. I was alive but only a one year old baby when Kennedy was shot in Dallas. But my life has been filled with the images of it. The super-8 film... the "documentaries", the FBI investigations, the courts, the television shows, and the big-screen movies. It was a moment in time that divided the history of the United States for a few generations of people... cleaving memory, politics and ideology between the time before and the time after the shot that shattered innocence.
In forty years... what will have happened with the many conspiracies that surround the 9/11 bombings.
There are many eye witness accounts and clear proof of an airliner crashing into the pentagon... yet the conspiracy stuff is thick as cold ketchup already.
And to steal a bit from The Oracle (matrix) 'what really bakes my noodle' is wondering ... how many seeds of truth are in the theories. Sadly... that just means that "they" have managed to "get to me" with their messages.
Will the idle day-dreams of what do with the "time machine" change from "stand, video camera in hand, with a good view of the Grassy Knoll back in 63" to "standing with that camera, on the interstate beside the Pentagon on 9/11"?

~ My fav part of that bit is when Jon asks Bill to consider the "slippery slope" argument from the other side and what is to stop the government from legislating who is an appropriate spouse for a person...
I grew up not even thinking about death
Until a student at my school went for the final "swing" from a street light.
But that just made me mad.
Since then... I've been quite sure of my convictions...
I didn't want to die... because I wanted to see what the future held.
But I have come realize...
That I don't want to die for a whole new kind of reason.
I don't want to leave my boys.
But truly feeling this... deep inside,
Awakens an understanding... an empathy
For any parent... any but mostly for my own.
k... time to go. :)(
