I challenge anyone to point me to a single soul in this list who doesn't deserve the dignity of an adult conversation on guns, mental health, media abuse, a culture of violence, or any other of the many complicated issues that are at play. I challenge the people who's knee jerk reaction is to worry about their guns being taken away to point to just one person on that list who's life isn't worth more than some hunk of metal and wood and plastic. Just one.

Furthermore, I invite anyone who hears even the slightest inkling of backing off from that adult conversation come from their local, state, or federal representatives to print that list out and mail it to them with the same challenge.

Hello... *tap tap tap* Is this thing on?
Banal curiosity of the reporter, or some such, but... Does anyone still read this thing?

mutter mutter mutter
I /should/ be playing something gratuitously violent on an Xbox 360 right now.

Am I? NooOOoooOooooo.

Instead I've just penned off a pissed but polite letter to the folks wot I bought it from. Thankfully the thing is warrantied out the wazoo.

Still, I shouldn't be fucking around with a warranty before I even got to play 5 minutes of something. Mother. Fucker. *sigh*

Crap day at work, look forward to getting home and stabbing faces after class. Instead I got to spend 30 minutes playing tech monkey with no payout.

Need a hand...
Need bottlecaps, lots of 'em, don't need to be new, do need to be free (though I can handle shipping them to me if you're willing to go to a UPS store). Lemme know what you might be able to wrangle up. Thanks!

I have the most awesomest wife /ever/.
Yes I do.

And the fact that she's letting me buy an arcade machine is just a perk (though it doesn't hurt).

Dear Universe
I'm not asking for much, am I?

I'd like a job I don't fucking loathe that can give me straight answers on straightforward things (even when it's not the answer I'd like to hear); I'd like to have enough cash that car payments, more rent for a slightly bigger place, and a kid (no, we're not pregnant, but it'd be nice to know that when we get there I won't go into fits worrying about money) wouldn't be terrifying prospects; and I'd like to be able to go to school and get it fucking /finished/ with some time before I'm 40 (you know, so I can get a job with the degree).

Really, is that so much?

Four Things
Stolen from Killie, cause I'm bored.

Four Jobs I've had:

1. Tech Support for an Internet Service Provider
2. Office Monkey (I do everything the other two folks here don't)
3. Web Monkey (Sometimes paid, sometimes not)
4. Music Reviewer (Heavy metal, was paid in cds)

Four TV shows I don't DVR, but won't miss:
None, I time shift almost everything I /really/ want to watch, I hate commercials that much. Plus it's easier to work around work and school schedules. Jeopardy is the closest, and even that I often miss cause I'm just not paying attention.

Four places I've been:

1. New Jersey (born there)
2. Italy (lived there)
3. Cancun (honeymoon with the missus)
4. Lake Arrowhead (I miss the cabin :( )

Four Favorite Foods:

1. Pizza (To quote a friend "Pizza's like sex, even when it's not so great, it's still decent")
2. Beef Flautas from El Amigo in Glendora (best. flautas. ever.)
3. Churros
4. Cake (even though it /is/ a lie)
