I like tiny horses, pocket-sized horses.

Information overload.

All I want to say is that I hope that the conflict is resolved rapidly and with a minimum of pain and effort. It's difficult for me to look at this from an assortment of scales. I don't want to see children die in a war. I also think that *someone* hitting Iraq (and Libya, and Korea) is long overdue. Not because of oil, but because more people are being hurt over a long period of time that will be harmed in a much shorter span of war. I don't like the idea of putting folks on a sliding scale economy of human life, but that's the way it has to be, unfortunately. What are the other options left? None to my mind, and believe me, I've been trying to come up with something better than a boycott. I will continue to only write stuff about Iraq in my own, private entries. I'll leave something laying in public view if I think it's of some value, and not just another rant on the pile.

Instead, I'll share fun links.

Ever wonder why Steve left Blues Clues? I like the interview. He seems like quite an engaging and entertaining guy.

Aww, a tiny Bluetooth-controlled robot.

Al Gore on Apple's board of directors? Apparently he's a senior advisor to Google, too.

Looks like the Finn is SOL regarding the batgirl skin. I'm thinking that she's getting to play a default female skin provided with the game, because I suspect that her WW alternate will suffer as well.

She had a mini temper tantrum when she found out.. And another when I chastised her for playing on the clock. I told her that Ken was still there, (and he was) and that accounting ratted out Sappho and me for playing the other day. She stopped, and then I poked my head in 2 minutes later, and she'd restarted. My final warning was "Well, if you want Ken to get you fired over something that stupid, that's your choice". To which she shut off the game and left for the night. Good, good. Take that aggression into the arena, Finn.

S'true about Ken... he'll certainly take shots at her wherever he's able.

I don't like either of them working late, on my watch. I'm glad that it doesn't happen very often. You can smell the pungent vibes of animosity between them, and they get me tetchy.
