Wouldn't be any big deal here, nothing to find. I'll be amazed if they census me anyhow. Nothing as interesting as that ever happens up here. The big excitement in town this week is watching Todd put in his new fence.


Ooooh! Ooooh! Is it a white picket? chain link? did he spring for some bushes to line it? does he have a blog for his fence?

Vinyl? VINYL!? You tell Todd he's a crazy man. Crazy, and a genius.

I meant to take a pitcher of it on the way by this morning but the coffee hadn't hit my brain yet and I forgot. Maybe tomorrow.

"Heisenberg may have slept here"

Is that "Heisenberg uncertainty"?

In principle. (See that? See what I did there?)

Here's Todd's new fence. Pretty spiffy, eh?

No, that's Ray's barn. Ray and Collette run a day-care in there. Todd's is the little garage. Right straight across the street from my house. There's more fence to put up this weekend across his side yard on the other side of his house.

No, I call you "Scott". "Fat" is reserved for the herd of Wal-Mart shoppers we encounter on supply runs.

Just a little joke that the gf and i use when we're in public. We'll be in the grocery store and she'll say "Do you want to get some tortillia chips?" and i'll yell "Are you calling me fat??!! What is your deal?!?!"

They'll think "Pastafarian" is some subcult of Rastafarian and a Democrat will show up trying to win your vote by offering to win you some special right in return.

An Atheist is the guy who shouts, "God, save me!" when he realizes he's about to drown or just fell off a tall cliff or forgot to pack his parachute shortly after jumping out of a perfectly good airplane.

:stupid:
I think I can confidently say that if I'm about to drown the only thing I'm going to be saying is a variant of "Glub glub" and if I'm falling out of a plane I'm going to be screaming "F******CCCCCCKKKKK!" all the way down, thanks very much.

By that logic, a religious person is someone who attributes all the good stuff in their life to god(s). And attributes all the bad stuff in their life to... god(s)? [/sarcasm]
