Strange... these sound so eerily familiar.

I do intend to blog about the trip, but it will be a long one, so I'm not going to do it now.

Here is something that has amused me: (From conwebwatch)

From the logical-fallacy department: In a column titled "No More Pencils. No More Books. School is Full of Commie Crooks" that appeared Aug. 16 on CNS, Fredrick Meekins of the Free Congress Foundation decries the concept of "confiscatory redistribution" of school supplies:

No longer will little Johnnie be allowed to march into the first day of class with his new shiny pencil box or glossy notebook tucked happily under his arm. Instead, Johnnie is to supply a pencil box purchased by Mommy and Daddy to be surrendered to credentialed pedagogues to be dispensed with as they see fit. For example, a student could end up bringing a really cool "Star Wars" or "Gundam Wing" notebook only to have it snatched and replaced with one sporting an insignia promoting some asinine leftwing cause such as recycling or nuclear disarmament.

The problem: Meekins never cites a single example of where this is taking place, which suggests that it probably isn't taking place anywhere other than his head. He's spent an entire column ranting about something he can't prove even exists. (Though he does get a bonus point for recognizing the coolness of "Gundam Wing.")

Ok. VCR Programmed. [Must make sure no one has turned it on before I go.]
Packed (mostly)
Cleaned up (mostly)
Garbage bag still needs to be set up.

Stuff done this morning:
printed out map
printed out car receipt
got gas

Things to do on the way home:
grab lunch
grab some cameras?

Blah. I probably should have taken today off, but I couldn't bring myself to use that extra vacation day. I don't have enough of them. Of course, if I leave this job, then it won't matter. But that's something I haven't decided yet. Now to finish this documentation before I go.

Stuff to do tonight:

Program VCR
Clean up apt
Garbage bag for packages

Archer Update: No -- as far as I can tell. I have to watch the episode again. I was up at my mom's house putting together their new computer, so I was rather distracted during most of the episode. I picked up most of the plot, because I was -listening-, but I didn't get most of the visual.

Quote of the Day: Soothies feel so good on my nipples!

My only question: why? This doesn't seem like a particularly comfortable thing. A shot is easier and more long lasting.
