I Love My Colleagues

Each and every one of them.


They are fucking awesome.

And know that I do not mean to drop the level of discourse by writing something so base. I just really mean it to the core of my two-chambered heart (tyj)and the vernal vernacular is sometimes the way to go to express pure emotion.

So bite me.

Freedom of Speech

is not only a is a responsibility.

Linked? At least tangentially.

My sincere condolences to the victims and their families.

And enough with the violent rhetoric and imagery...from all sides, all politicians.

Enough is enough.

I've kinda learned not to blog during tech. The repercussions are just...well...a pain. So...perhaps the solution, if you desire a solution, is to send your email address to me @ and you'll receive a semi-private subscription for the next couple of weeks.*

Sound spanky?

Good. I'm going to go take a bath.

*Offer only valid if people care.

Happy New Year

It's an excellent one so far. And Jesus only dislikes me (as opposed to the usual hate) after last night's shenanigans.
