RQ's dad is in town, came in yesterday, leaves tomorrow. Was very convenient, though, that tze bebe got sick and has to stay home from day care today. Huzzar! Well, sorta.

Now, if you check my LJ from last month, you'll note tze bebe got sick right in time for the Changeling larp. And, lo and behold, this Friday is another larp, and bebe is sick again. She seems to have inherited my sense of timing.

Also, got home yesterday, and the new cell phone* was out of power. After recharging it the night before. Turns out the phone spent yesterday trying to get a signal in my big, stone office building, and thusly burned itself out. The upshot is, I'm gonna need to keep the phone turned off most of the day while I'm here. Tragic that I get better reception on the Metro than at work.

Can't wait to see how the Metro's gonna fill up with protesters. Fun fun.

Sic semper tyrannis!

* -Mental note: remember to call Verizon about porting over the old number.

"For reasons having to do with caution, prudence and a debilitating sense of fair play, I have until now withheld my first - and only - impression of John Bolton, probably destined to be the next U.S. ambassador to the United Nations: He's nuts."
-Richard Cohen

So, why isn't Rudolph being tried as a terrorist? Good read: Andrew Cohen feels the Feds chickened out on this one. (Cohen is probably my favorite legal analyst these days.)

"From the beginning, our goal in Iraq has been to promote Iraqi independence - by helping the Iraqi people establish a free country that can sustain itself, rule itself, and defend itself."
-President Bush, 4/12/2005

"And our mission is clear, to disarm Iraq of weapons of mass destruction, to end Saddam Hussein's support for terrorism, and to free the Iraqi people."
