Yes, it's terribly simple. The good guys are always stalwart and true, the bad guys are easily distinguished by their pointy horns or black hats, and, uh, we always defeat them and save the day. No one ever dies, and everybody lives happily ever after.

Off-topic discussion. Wanna talk about corsets, duct tape, or physics? This is the place. Detailed discussion of any current-season TV must be whitefonted.

Punishingly Intricate

I swear I saw a poster in a bus stop that referred to the teacher's pay idiocy.

There was a story on NPR about it a couple of months ago so it has been in the national news. Not that that seems to have made a difference.

I am off today but have a cold! I couldn't even nap properly. Now I'm going to make some plague cookies to take to a party tonight. Because god forbid I let a freaking virus change my plans.

So, what are people doing tonight?

We live about 1-1/2 miles from our downtown where they have lots of outdoor bands and activities. They drop a ball and have fireworks and such at the tennis center. We were talking about dropping a vehicle this afternoon then walking down tonight and having the truck available to drive home. It's supposed to be about 70 so I'm thinking walking both ways might be a good plan. Or riding bikes.

Staying on the couch and watching tv has a certain appeal too.

I am going to sit on my ass and do absolutely nothing.

Back tattoos of the mother is that you are absolutely right - Ame

DH invited another family over. The adults are ok, and their son gets along fine with my son - but their daughter and mine are kinda non-mixy. Plus they are bringing their PS2 with them.

I wanted mellow, but sounds like I'm gonna get manic. Must stash the Fernet in my room before they show up.

everyone's anti-godzilla until there's a 200,000 ton boat that can't be moved

I'm planning on going here for dinner, assuming I can get a reservation for a seating late enough for me to make the drive into Memphis.
