“May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.”

"This report is maybe 12-years-old. Parliament buried it, and it stayed buried till River dug it up. This is what they feared she knew. And they were right to fear because there's a whole universe of folk who are gonna know it, too. They're gonna see it. Somebody has to speak for these people. You all got on this boat for different reasons, but you all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything I know this, they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, 10, they'll swing back to the belief that they can make people . . . better. And I do not hold to that. So no more running. I aim to misbehave." ~ Captain Malcom Reynolds

Mad science report

Apparently, according to my wife, "normal" people don't take advantage of the youngest's naptime to put together explosive mixtures in the office for work training sessions...

I told her that at least I wasn't doing the mad scientist cackle as I worked, but that didn't help much.

(and yes, it was all legal and safe - I have a permission slip and everything)

Normal is completely overrated!

And what of the discussion regarding a plan of attack once the younglings start school and begin to share delightful, fun anecdotes regarding these quirky little hobbies of ours?

Who wants to be normal?

Mulligan said...

uh .. just out of curiosity...where might a guy get one of those permission slips?

What's sad is that I've been trying to put together household items for use in training. There's an endurance drill planned and I wanna barricade myself with a few early-warning devices. Things like pie-pans buried to simulate mines, 550 trip cords with bells or some noisemaker, etc.

Yeah yeah, I'm a dork. I know.

That's not normal?? lol. ;)

Dori: I cannot wait to hear what the kids will be telling their friends & teachers at school about what they daddy is up to! Or the reactions to the stories! Motor parts on the dinner table, explosive devices strewed across the living room floor, etc. lol. :)
