ohhh... there was some serious weather fun last night... The lightening started at ... I dunno when, but it rrrrrraged. Wicked freak out lightening. It was truly awesome. :)
Kitty showed up on our bed ... and when the lightening ended... she took off again. :) (little cutie).

finally got a non-subtitled version of Weeds Season 3 epi 2 downloaded... now we have a few epi's to watch. Love that show.
Could have something minor to do with how I fell for Parker when she was on West Wing. :)
I get such a huge laugh out of the husbands... drug addicted nut cases.

We had a blast at the skatepark yesterday. :)
I just can't express how great it is to be able to do that stuff.

Little kid... shoots little kid... dead.
Sadly, this is in England... land of the outlawed hand gun.
Hand guns.
Stupidest things ever to be placed on the market.
Yes... I know that genie is out of the bottle and we're all screwed.
However... I have yet to hear a credible reason for a regular person to own a handgun.
You can blather on about "protecting yourself" all you like.
If you live somewhere that's not frigging Beirut, and you need a handgun for daily protection... then you need to move.
And personally... I hope it's not the house next to mine. Thanksmuchly.
But otherwise... you're begging for trouble and that trouble is going to come at the expense of an innocent.
Power to you... enjoy the guilt when it slams your ass into the ground beside the grave of a child, yours or your neighbors or some schmuck you off on your front steps.
"oh, but it's fun... we go to the range... and ... " yeah... blah blah blah blah...
Flying an F16 and shooting sidewinder missiles is fun too.
"I have a license... I took a course... I'm safe... I use a locked gun cabinat... " blah blah blah...
Motorcycles are safe. Motorcycle drivers are well trained, experienced and drive safe.
They also rarely survive crashes that have nothing to do with them.
You're not that likely to shoot yourself with your happy-pink-handgun.
Well... unless you live in Arkansas.
But you can't control the world around you.
And having a hand gun in that world makes it a more dangerous place.
Not a safer one.
The dead English kid was eleven. 11. Geo is eleven.
Whatever.

K... gotta go.
Peace.
