“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

Shopping success

Like most of the other bloggers within my circle, I dread and loathe the thought of dealing with crowds, stupidity, and the general madness of this shopping season, much less this day in particular. Yes, I'm talking to you, folks who think that pepper spraying a group of people to get a deal on a TV is appropriate... W.T.F.?????

So, this year I have made it my goal to complete all my shopping from the wonderful comfort of my own desk chair - no crowds, no lines and no rush. I can say that between early shopping for my wife, and careful looking for the kids I am now pretty much done. A couple more small things to get, but no rush on them. I also managed to fit in donations to a couple of my favorite veteran's charities - we are blessed more than we often think about, and I felt it was appropriate to give something back.

I hope your day-of-commercial-worship goes at least as smoothly.

I worked my 2nd job on Black Friday. Thankfully, we didn't have pepper-spraying psychos to deal with!
