Thanks to galinda822 for use of her pseudo-truck SUV. After succumbing to her demands to leave work early because I was such a bear, I used her vehicle to transport my daughters new bedroom furniture home, and spent movie night in the floor, building it. Idle hands are the Devil's playground. As she was driving my vehicle home, the fuel light came on. The first thing that she thought when she saw the light which read "CHECK GAGES" was that's not how you spell gauges. Well, I agree, and looked it up. Sure enough, it's now considered a 'variant' of the spelling. Just like you can no longer 'make a withdrawal' from your account at the ATM. You now have to 'Get Cash.' If we make enough stuff idiot-proof, we breed an entire generation of idiots, and then even this is going to seem difficult. It's not the right direction to go. Don't you understand that?

Someone tell me just who thought the whole pro-hispanic brainwashing my children agenda was a good idea? I mean, first we have Dora the Explorer and now Go, Diego, Go. I'm guessing it's the Governator, who was lying through his teeth about his views on the American-born Presidential policy to get elected just so he could eventually hold us real American's hostage by forcing himself into that highest office and grant all illegal immigrants amnesty. He's not planning this right away, you understand, he's planning this once our children who are watching this liberal horseshit are of voting age...and too stupid to know what a 'withdrawal' is.

And another thing, why is it that everything I see on television now-a-days points out that we're all somehow connected? In no particular order, I give you Lost, Six Degrees, and some new show about Heroes. Sounds awfully new-age to me. I don't get a warm and fuzzy, I don't want a warm and fuzzy. I just want to be left ALONE. All this manipulation is wearing me out. Maybe that's the plan. Bombard me until I give up, shed my clothes, and walk hand-in-hand with some flower child wearing woven hemp as a tiara. Grrrr.

We were driving around today and my little metrologist asked me, "Is it partly cloudy today?"

I made it down to the Delmar 'Loop' for the first time since I've lived here, and got myself a "subscription" to the new BSG comic. It's more like a call-list. They call me when they get one in, charge my credit card, and I go pick it up. THERE IS NOTHING AT ALL YOU CANNOT ORDER ONLINE...except comic books. *sigh* That's broken. Someone fix it.

Friday, my wife told me that my daughter was very persistent about spending some time with her two grandmothers. She asked if I would consider driving her to Kansas City (the half-way point) if my mother-in-law agreed to meet there to pick her up a couple of weeks prior to Thanksgiving, when they are coming to St. Louis. I told her I would think about it. Then my daughter asked me the same question. I told her I would think about it. To her, that was a yes, and she sat by the front door all evening waiting for Grandma to arrive. So I'm driving to KC tomorrow to meet them there, and she'll be staying about three weeks before I can get back there. I'm leaving at 0600.

I take it you're a conservative, then? Just curious, since I never did find out.

Idiot-proofing is definitely going to backfire. I have friends that would probably need me to describe withdrawals, so that's certainly something to think about.

I am conservative. I don't know that I am one.

All right, I think I know what you're saying.

My second thought was..."Oh shit! I'm going to run out of gas."

Hope your round trip today was safe. At least the weather was nice!!!

There's a certain peace at 85mph that simply cannot be found elsewhere in life.

Thanks for putting gas in my car ;)
