What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, "hooray for our side"

Linkee-poo goes over the river and through the wood

I'm still working, so it can't be too late, right? (don't look at the published time if you don't want to be depressed) On the plus side we finished all our labs for Intro to Radiographic Technology. So just write up the results and my Wednesdays will be over sooner. Yippie. So I can go into work earlier. Um, wait.

Also, besides Thanksgiving being tomorrow, it's also our 15th Anniversary. So I know what I'm thankful for. How about yous all?

Some signs you may be having an awkward Thanksgiving. (Grokked from Daniel J Hogan)

Catherine Schaff-Stump interviews Ellen Klages on her writing process. "Most of all, I love having written." No truer words have been spoken.

Handling rejection like a pro. (Grokked from Vince)

The continuation on how Norse myths have come down to us.

Old computers never die, they just reboot. The world will have a new "oldest digital computer still working" soon. (Pointed to by Dan)

Ah, the French Foreign Legion. The romance, the daring do, the unrelenting march through the mud. As is often the case, what seems to be so romantic from the outside is often pretty terrible on the inside. (Grokked from Matt Staggs)

"In short i don’t care to publish reviews of films that offend me." You know, those movies with strong female characters. OMG. And that, my friends, is what we refer to a neanderthal. Also, that's the problem of the free press, it's the free press of the people who own the press. (Grokked from Jay Lake)

Crazy Uncle Pat admits he blew predicting the election. But, wait, didn't God speak to him. I'm pretty sure he said God spoke to him. Say, uh, Uncle Pat, that ain't God's voice. A prophet you ain't, you know what I'm saying? (Grokked from Matt Staggs)

"(David) French consoles himself by asserting that Tuesday’s overwhelming rejection of religious-right values somehow constitutes, above all, a defeat for progressive evangelicals… By 'key elements of Christian orthodoxy' French apparently means the Holy Trinity… 1) opposing LGBT rights; 2) seeking to criminalize abortion; and 3) voting for Mitt Romney." They may not be going down swinging, but singing "Lalala, can't hear you" all the way.

Tweet of my heart: @pnh: Best sentence I have read on the internet all day: "I am delighted to annoy this category of status-anxious, woman-fearing moron." @scalzi

Double dip: @jay_lake: On further discussion of CT results, it appears Rumsfeld has disappeared, or at least shrunk below the scan's resolution. Two to go!

Alligator Quotient: Don't they know it's (Thanksgiving) after all?
