  • Hell hath no wrath like an Irish Woman who discovers that the painters have covered over tile in the bathroom.
    • Other than the fact that I have no time or talent, things like this are why I pay other people to do things when I can.  Better to part with some cash than to be the object of her ire when things go wrong.
  • Watching the goings-on in Wisconsin, it occurs to me that there are a few things we all need to keep in mind:
    • Everything you do, especially in a volatile environment, is being recorded somehow.  Dress and act accordingly.
    • The trick here is to never wear anything that isn’t produced by the truckload in a third world sweatshop out of unadorned gray or brown cloth, and any identifying bits of your skin should be covered.
    • Never, ever, talk to anyone you don’t know about your motivations or plans.  And remember, even if you’re talking to someone you’ve known all your life, you’re probably being recorded.
    • Whether or not your actions are righteous, expect that if you are in a place where the authorities have let things get as bad as they are, they are probably not going to look kindly on anyone that draws unwanted attention.
    • Remember, the best way to win a fight is to not be there.  If you have to be there, remember the first rule of gunfights.
    • Don’t start anything, but make sure you have a good lawyer if you have to finish it.
  • I’m transitioning to a new position at the day job.  It’s amazing how folks who dumped massive amounts of twarg dung on me at some point in the past few years want a long, drawn-out transition as I scrape it off and throw it back at them.
    • This seems to include documentation written in English, Sumerian, and Klingon, complete with voice-over and animated pictographs, and for me to have every project that can be dreamed up complete, along with all of the work I have been doing all year.

    If you’re going to be out and about during goblin-time, considering buying your clothes second-hand from a charity store. Lots of mixed DNA from the people browsing them. Just saying.

    Hey DB;

    There are times to know your limitations, Also as far as gun fights, I understand the willingness to want to help, the smart play was to not to be there. But he got the Covington Kid Lawyer so he ain’t gonna get railroaded and the way that guy works, he might actually get ahead after its all over. and finally leave your turnover in Klingon, Croat and Russian just because…LOL


    • I can’t say the idea of leaving it all in Bavarian German hasn’t crossed my mind.


      • Das wird fantastisch sein! *ahem* Not that I am encouraging such things, of course. But as a thought experiment . . . *very sincere expression here*
