The court clerk told me I could opt for deferred adjudication, so if I don't get another ticket within 6 months, it won't show up on my record.

That being said, given current trends, I will get another ticket this Friday when I'm back at home base, lol.

I am very happy I don't have children because I have not been feeding them or teaching them to read. I would have been chastised by a judge or social worker for sure.

Whether I am greeted with a smile or a growl is completely in the air at this point, but at least there is a fair amount of Belgian beer in the fridge to soothe any tempests.

Oh, and I'm over a major hump in my exam prep, nearly through this book. Fixin to order the next book and schedule this exam.

icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif slay the exam, brah!

I still get to watch that phineas & ferb episode where the boys were able to reunite the 80s band 'lovehandel' for their folks' wedding anniversary and thay played on top of their garage while in the meantime perry was helping doofenshmirtz put up a party for his sorta estranged daughter. my favorite episode.

if you've read matilda which I'm sure you did, you'll realize that kids will eventually learn to cook for themselves, and not teaching them to read will give them an uncontrollable desire to consume every book in the library.

I just bought a brass ashtray shaped like a crab. I felt like my life was being held back by not owning one, so it's a relief being able to welcome the good fortune it will surely bring me.

We cried.

We agreed three rabbis, four opinions.

This book has been coming up a lot in my life recently. I remember reading it a long time ago. Then recently my girlfriend became obsessed with this band Alt-J and they have a song called "Matilda". She found out it was a song about Matilda from Leon: The Professional, which she never saw that I made her watch. Then I met this girl who works for my company named Matilda. Then I was walking in my neighborhood and happened to get a glimpse of this as I was walking....

I thought it fate so I bought it. My girlfriend re-read it.

I believe they call that the Baader Meinhof Phenomenon. It's an early sign of syphilis.

MrsG brought LowerCaseG by my office recently, and one of my coworkers had a bunch of models she's gotten through her relationships with certain industries. For example, she's worked directly with a local fire department, and she has a model firetruck. When LowerCaseG was here, he spotted them and loved them, and she must have taken note of this because there was a big Tonka bulldozer on my desk when I walked into work today. It seems my coworker found it with some toys she'd bought at some point for her nephew to play with, and she thought my son would enjoy it. The thing looks brand new; I wouldn't have doubted it for a second if I'd been told it's right out of the box. In any case, she's right - I know he'll love the toy, and I thought it was very kind of her to do something like that for him.

I have a pretty cynical view of people, but I'm always touched by unexpected kindness, especially when it's to children.
