6385 Happy New(t) Year!

Something I post at the top of every new year, and I appreciate the words more with every additional trip around the sun.

Love is
is not rude,
it is not self seeking,
it is not easily angered,
it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil
but rejoices in truth.
It always protects,
always trusts,
always hopes,
always perseveres.

-1 Corinthians 13:5&6

New Ninja Turtles isn't too bad, the art is akin to the MIB / heavy lines, simple colors, but detailed look. The origin episode tonight was cute.

Played FFXI with Sammy and D for a while tonight, stayed up later than my norm, because I can sleep in tomorrow. I still think that monthly fees for this sort of game are annoying, especially if it's more than $5 a month. It seems to be a bit gouge-y. However, I did get my link-money today, which is $20 found, so I can put half of that into the game for a little while, anyhow. I'm liking the non-combat stuff... I want to learn fishing and woodworking, so I can sell my wares in the auction, and be virtually self-sufficient.(But not have it be so much work that it's another "job".

Found a lot of Kurosawa films for download via DC++. Six, if you count A Fistful of Dollars.Site Meter

Newt's aging pretty well, I think. He's still a total babyhead at 4.
First Call of the New season, a 12 year old black male in Tallahassee. The kid already has a gang tattoo as an identifying mark. (JLP) He went missing at 7:30 last night, and has run away before, but isn't considered habitual (yet?) So, some folks are getting an early morning wakeup after New Year's eve festivities. I really hope that the kid turns out all right, and that he's just out fooling around, and not up to anything really detrimental to himself or others. I've been up for about an hour or so, and will probably crawl back into bed for an hour or so soon.

[update- 10am] - Child returned home at 4:30 am, mom didn't bother notifying the police to call off the search. Thanks, Ma!
