Saturday Night Open Thread: How's Your Day?

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
A picture and an open thread for the Christmas shoppers, the holiday partiers, the slavishly working on other projects during the weekend hours crowd, and the trolls. How'd you spend your day?

If you're up for reading more than you are for commenting, then check out these links:

The U.S. Congress, in a last act of stupidity, ok'ed the proliferation of nuclear weapons in India. A snippet from the article: "Such a policy unravels years of successful U.S. diplomatic efforts to convince countries that the benefits of surrendering the right to develop nuclear weapons outweighed the risk of staying outside the treaty and pursuing a nuclear weapons option," said retired Army Lt. Gen. Robert G. Gard Jr., a senior military fellow at the Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation, a Washington think tank."

Charles Taylor and Howard Coble didn't bother showing up to vote against another bad-for-NC trade deal.

Go vote in the 2006 Weblog Awards.

Great cartoon, Screwy

Our day was spent in a frenzy of Christmas cooking making. Pictures to follow. But I'm guessing the bakers created more than 600 cookies of seven different varieties. We won't have room for supper!

Bill Owens (D Elizabeth City)

is an idiot.

I don't care if he's walked on water and given manna to the masses, he's a frickin' idiot from head to toe. Just ask him. That's exactly what a reporter did in the latest sorry Jim Black saga, and this is what he had to say:

Rep. Bill Owens, an Elizabeth City Democrat and staunch backer of Black, said he saw no issue with Black's actions. "That was the speaker's call," he said of the historian job. "That's not for me to judge."

That's not for him to judge? Looks like the people of Elizabeth City have a head-in-the-sand ostrich - or maybe just a worn-out political whore - representing them in the NC House.

Well, it was my birthday today.

Nothing spectacular, but as my Dad always says "Better than the alternative."

I'm off to wrap up against the cold with my granny's homemade quilts.

Jesus Swept ticked me off. Too short. I loved the characters and then POOF it was over.

Happy Birthday

You old coot! I'm off to read some Jane Austen. She's my favorite.

Sweet dreams everyone.

Hope everyone had

a happy weekend. Waiting for cookie pics, A. Happy belated Birthday Robert P.! Hope the reading was as pleasant as it sounds, SD.

Sat. morning saw my daughter and I doing a little shopping. Mostly it was re-con work. Only two things on each kids' list is crossed off, one each because other people are getting that thing for them. The challenge of last minute shopping is a joy I give myself every year. ;) I spent Sat. afternoon picking up pine cones and raking pine needles after my youngest left for an indoor tournament that would last the entire night. Sunday I drank waaaay too much coffee, watched movies, watched football, and got some Christmas cards out.

"They took all the trees and put them in a tree museum Then they charged the people a dollar 'n a half just to see 'em. Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you've got till it's gone? They paved paradise and put up a parking lot."

Reading was fun

and the shopping was busy, busy. Sounds like you had a fun evening Sunday.....but drinking too much coffee? Didn't you switch to decaf? I didn't think there was such a thing as drinking too much coffee. :)

Thanks to all.

It came and went without much fanfare, but with a few more creaks. I have GOT to get back into shape.
