  • There’s no “I” in “TEAM”, but there are a couple in “PEDANTIC TWIT”.  Make a note of it.
  • Taking Boo to the doctor for a suspected case of strep throat exposed me to some of the latest examples of the creeping crud.  Luckily, he doesn’t have strep and is already feeling better.  I, on the other hand, feel like I got hit with a truck.
  • I finally forced myself to sit down and get the middle part of the current work in progress down on paper.  4000 words later, it’s just shy of 20,000 words.
    • I was shooting for a short story.  Oh, well.
  • I’m going to be traveling to New Jersey and New York for business next week.  I’m not dumb enough to try to figure out how to take along a firearm, so I’ve been researching knife laws.
    • Holy crap.  Basically, if I don’t want to buy a folding butter knife for the trip I’m down to Boo’s Cub Scout knife.  I’m not even sure that would be legal.
    • Do people there just use their teeth to open things or what?

  1. I think they use knives, and the government uses that as an excuse to be able to arrest anyone at anytime. Except for the people who use scissors like they’re large, awkward knives when it comes to opening things.

    May you be over the creeping crud and your immune system strong before you expose it to the pax terminal side of the airport!


  2. Can’t speak for NJ, but in most of NY state most folders are fine. Unless you’re in NYC, in which case your guess is as good as mine.

    Don’t worry the nanny state will do it for you.


  5. I wouldn’t even bring the boy scout knife if it’s NYC. Heck, my boy scout knife was illegal in DE due to blade length, yet I carried it for years as a kid.
