I Attack with My +3 Vorpal Blade

Your Nerd leader.

Tastes Like Burning!

If at all possible, avoid ever being Maced. Trust me here. it isn't pleasant. My face still hurts. And my eyes.

Stolen from Tild, who is more than happy to have it spread. She has other great bumper sicker designs to choose from.

"Murder suspects in Nigeria, where many people believe in black magic, sometimes claim spirits tricked them into killing." Change spirits to God, and we've got the same thing here in the U.S.

And my streak of voting for only one winning candidate continues. Yes, I helped elect Mark Dayton back in 2002, and look where that got me. I'm thinking of voting straight Repub ticket this year, to see if that works.

I Nicknamed Her "Stampy"

Apparently VP Cheney admitted Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11. I imagine the right-wing blogosphere will now start calling him a traitor or a dirty liberal or French.

I attended the MOB Get-Together at Keegan's last night. I had some fun, at least until the conversation turned to Rush. I'm not the type who is good at meeting new people, so I have a hard time at large gatherings where I know nobody. Luckily Rew and Smartie were there to keep me company. Also, I met LearnedFoot, who is as funny as his writing would imply (even if he did bring up Rush).

Today was even cooler. I got to ride an elephant!!!!!!

That's the Affiliate and me on the elephant.

My love of elephants is evident to anyone who has seen the dozen or so elephant statues around my house. This was my first ride on an elephant, and it was awesome, even if it only lasted 8 minutes.

We were at the Renaissance Festival, which is as geeky as it sounds. But we had a good time. Even Puke & Snot were funnier than I remember them being. And I ate a giant turkey leg.

Here's the Affiliate and her friend with their newly braided hair.

So that was my weekend. Hope yours went well.

Your Hannibal leader.

I Love to Run

Not really, but I have to pretend for the next 3 months or so.

By the way, I got a new job. That's all I really care to say.

I also found out that my old D.A.R.E. Officer is running for Washington County Sheriff. If you live in the far East Metro, check out William Hutton. I worked with him for a short time at the Oakdale P.D., and he is a good man and a great peace officer. He'd make a great sheriff.

That's my only endorsement until after the primary. Be sure to vote on the 12th!

I'll be posting light for a while. I should still be making Drinking Liberally, so if you go there, you can talk to me. For whatever that's worth.
