Ceallach: I think a better smiley in that case would be %) Don't you think?

OMG!!! What is with these men and those offensive insectoid sunglasses they've decided to wear? Following in the footsteps of those offensive Hollywood starlets. What a travesty!!!

Recovering from the weekend... city lights... wild nights ( some at a great height, some far from city blight ) ...... crying with the doves.

Haha, I didn't even notice that I posted under the other one earlier until now! I was just seeing if it still existed. It's funny, this one's been used since I didn't remember the other one, but it's actually my original account. I do like it better, since it mentions in the title that it's all just opinion.. . . quandary.

Finishing Season 4 of Prison Break so we can see the opener tonight. I've yet to see inmate on there, unless he's really t-bag in "disguise."

R_I, that was two years ago! I can't remember that far back....Although I do remember lots of "Don't kill the nice friendly harmless doves!" hand-wringing.

jonas 9 years, 6 months ago

yikes, I just passed 5000 posts. Maybe I should retire this account and go back to "jonas opines."

sgtwolverine 9 years, 6 months ago

Actually, jonas, I think you should retire this one and start one called sanoj, and then write everything sdrawkcab.

sgt.: I'm afraid that the very idea of how much time and mental energy dluow eb deriuqer ot etirw gnihtyreve sdrawkcab makes my skin crawl.

I labored all day on Labor Day. And, I feel quite robbed.

ms_canada 9 years, 6 months ago

I think I will do a bit of labouring in my garden, like picking the tomatoes. And I am going to make a super good dinner with some shrimp and scallops and rice. Thats about all the labour I will do.It is a really nice day here. Sunny and warm, not hot. Frost had been forecast but did not materialize. Hooray!!! My tomatoes survived.

Ah! Well, in that case, hit them with your best shot. Fire away!(Yes, R_I, you're a real tough cookie.)

Ceallach 9 years, 6 months ago

jonas, it also makes readers eyes cross :)

jonas 9 years, 6 months ago

Note to cutny, there have always been men wearing silly insectoid sunglasses, we have noticed before, we have commented on it before, and this mysoginistic thing is only in your head. And man, the last guy has some big'uns!

I'm not spending it -- I'm putting it away for retirement.Oh ... that's not what they meant by "spending." Oops.Actually, I'm just staying at home all day, and I'm actually doing a little work. Friday was the first high school football game of the season here in Michigan, and I have to finish up some photo work from that (for that pesky newspaper deadline). But I'm not working all day; some friends are coming by a little later.
