Belated Merry Christmas

Well, life has been busy the past two weeks, and will probably continue to be busy for another week or so, I just wanted to pop on and say Merry Christmas to y'all.

And to those of you that took a moment to stop by and wish me a Merry Christmas, thank you. It sure was nice to see all of your comments in my in-box. =)

This boggles my mind

If there were a giant red button that when pushed would destroy the world, well, there have been times when I was upset enough by something I read that I would have pushed said button.

Usually, it is something horrifically evil that makes me feel that way.

Today, I read this article and I have decided that humanity has almost reached the point where we are just Too Stupid To Live and I want to find that red button! Must stop humanity's slide into idiocy before it gets any worse!

Er - this quiz needs more answers to choose from. Found via Heidi.

Seriously. I might live in my own little world, but it is not one filled with fairies, rainbows and pretty pink ponies.

They're pretty black ponies. Or blood bay. Or a nice shiney chestnut.

But never pink.
