Quote of the Day - SCOTUS Edition

States may have grown accustomed to violating the rights of American citizens, but that does not bootstrap those violations into something that is constitutional.

----Attorney Alan Gura, in response to a question by Justice Sotomayor, during McDonald v. Chicago.

Whooah, Mr Gura!

2030 and Debi is still at work

Another Wednesday, another long day for SWWBO. She had a total of seven clients today. The last one finished their IV administration at about 1700, and only then could she get started on the charting for all.
Long days. Weather is terrible tonight, so no hot tub. Supper will be later than normal which means staying up later. We both hate to go to bed soon after supper.
Long hours. Manhattans at zero paces. Maybe two.

Another Fine Supper

Last night was the Annual Robert Burns Supper. This year, the Misty Thistle Pipes and Drums were the sponsoring organization. Jane Bolima, President of the MTP&D, did the lioness's share of the prepping, decorating, organizing, cooking, calling, arranging, and running. Really, she is an amazing woman, with far more energy than I want to have. Energy like that means everyone wants you to do everything, because, apparently, you can.

Good crowd at the Supper. We ordered rotisserie turkeys from A&P and that turned out to be a very good deal. Tatties and neaps, salad, and, of course, HAGGIS. We ordered six pounds from Charles Lamb, in Oregon, and Jane tried her hand at home made haggis. I think hers was better.More pepper is needed, but if she is willing to prepare it next year (see, I do it, too), that is another $200 we will save in costs. The turkeys, used instead of salmon, saved us almost $500. All told, it appears that we netted over $1100. That is a few pipe reeds or kevlar drumheads.

Fun, ach, aye.

Where Do The Thoughts Go?

November 20th? Really? That is a pretty long time to not have any trivial drivel to write down or comment on.

Right now, working on the Wearable Art Show 2010 "On The Rocks" script. Lot of repetitive typing, working from the piece descriptions by the artists. It can be...rocky.

New haircut, or rather, loss. Just had Nicole give me a zero buzz cut. That and a beard trim. Looking kind of svelte. Then I look below my neck and that thought no longer holds true.
