Some numb-nuts tried to steal from Will & Olivia yesterday. He fired a gun in their shop, took off running, and fortunately was dumb enough to fire off a shot at a cop. They caught him (the cops, that is), and with an attempted capital murder charge, he'll be up the river for a loooooooong time.

So take a moment and send some love to our good friends and coffeeshop proprietors. I'm thinking of getting Amanda to apply for a part-time security job over there.

My Super Duper Uper Schmuper Top Secret Blog

I've had a lot of requests for access to my other blog. Please do not be offended I do not act on yours. Things are a bit crazy right now, and until the dust settles, I have to be extremely careful.

My failure to grant your request does not mean that we are not friends. Unless you're not my friend, but I think they pretty much know who they are.

I will not be enjoined, Martha F.

Vielen Dank

I posted it on my super duper top secret ueber-Blog, but I just wanted to express my thanks to all of you who have rallied to help us put the events of the last couple of weeks behind us.

I'm not angry, and I don't want to go back. I'm looking only at positive ways to go forward, and there are plenty.

Honest to God

Real conversation with Alastair tonight:

We'd been discussing alpacas, since we'd seen them at the State Fair of VA. Amanda or I made some silly comment about having an alpaca, and where it would be kept.

Alastair: He could stay in the FRONT YARD! (he tends to yell his punch lines)
Me: But how could we keep him from going in the road?
Alastair: He could stay in MY ROOM! No no no: that's silly. He could stay in the COMPUTER ROOM! It'd be hard to check your e-mail!

He's two.
