    The Tea Party would correct you by saying "No, the party brought the freakin' government to its knees last month!" And then give each other high-fives. And then discuss with each other how they can do it even better NEXT time.

    Because, you see, they don't see what happened last month as a BAD thing for this country. They, for a brief while, saw the Promised Land - a government with "Sorry, We're Closed" signs on its doors. A shut-down government can't tax, can't spend on social programs, can't enforce land-use restrictions or other regulations, can't do all the wrong-bad-evil-no-good things it does because it's not there. So, as far as they're concerned, a country without a government is like a fish without a bicycle. (Well, the government was still kind of there, but only for "essential services" - you know, the military, the one thing they actually want to keep around.)

    So expect to see a lot more of last month so long as they maintain their stranglehold on the Republican Party. Because that wasn't a means to an end for them - it was an end unto itself.

    I'm too terrified to say anything other than congratulations.

    My fear is moderated by the fact he has chosen to live and work on the other coast. ;-)

    Seriously, congratulations on your final victory over the gatekeepers of legal practice.

    You omit the frequent trips to the vomitorium in-between banquet courses!

    Ben: That's for the after party!

    True, but those brushes make for very efficient cleaning between one's teeth!

    Happy Halloween to all!

    There will be blood. And Kit Kats. There will be blood and Kit Kats.

    Over the weekend I went up to Ottawa for a friend's wedding. Encountered a Predator in a museum.

    What I want to know is, why is she crying? Was the Hutt her father or something?

    The bird is the one attending the party. The pirate is just part of the costume.

    Creed 4 (open)
    First Impressions playing Creed 4 on a friend XBOX. Kenway makes a rather promising start with killing an Assassin and then faking to be him ;) Also your RL counterpart is again an Abstergo Employee mining Desmond’s DNA, apparently in order to make a game, similar set up to Liberation, which is actually show in game to be a game made by Abstergo. Controls are pretty nice; especially the sea segments I got to play so far and Havana is insanely beautiful. Soundtrack has been blowing my mind as well. [/quote]

    I picked up AC4 (and Deus Ex HRDC) earlier this week as well- hopefully I'll have time to play it next week. Looking forward to some pirate fun.

    So, not counting this message, I have as many likes as posts. Is... is that good? Should there be a trophy? Can I put this in my CV?
