A Few Random Bits

DigiKerot just wants the DVD and is unimpressed with the marketing departments attempt to splice Rube Goldberg's DNA onto origami.

Wonderduck has had a rough week, but he has discovered the joys of customer satisfaction.

Pete has begun watching Midori no Hibi (mentioned in passing here) and seems to be enjoying it.

Steve Den Beste is finicky...(who knew!)...nevertheless, he takes the time to explain why this might be a good in the last get several series.

Colleen Doran has a roundup of links, starting off with another reason not to date...but she also has advice for aspiring artists and many fans....

Copyright: There's a better way to learn the basics than making an enemy of an artist with more money than God. 

Finally, many people are quick to point out that Anime is a perfectly respectable hobby.
Pixy Misa helpfully puts that myth to rest in a post that requires he put this 'explanation' in the associated comments.
Well, there's at least two others with plausible excuses - one wearing inflatable falsies, and one with a trout in her bra.
(probably NSFW)

Normally I am Very Enthusiastic about Diesels

But that is only in reference to the engine...not the spambot.

Oh God...'s Christmas at UPS again.

 I'm going in early to help park the trucks and staying late to help pull them out of the building. I actually managed to make more overtime than straight time last Friday (double secret overtime!?). Anyway I'm tired, so tired that I got home Friday put the key in the door to unlock it and was momentarily puzzled when it wouldn't start...

I'm taking all the hours I can now because this may be it. Some UPS centers in Virginia are reportedly going to close after the holidays and as I mentioned previously there are lots of layoffs on the horizon. There was a big spike in volume up to yesterday but I suspect that this is companies desperately clearing inventory for tax purposes...and it is Christmas at UPS after all.

On the home front, the pickup of peril is now sporting a clutch. (yay!)

I leave for work momentarily, but here are a couple of.....

Christmas carols!

Also here...

Well, enough religion for now.....I'm off to work. Blogging is going to be necessarily light till the weekend. Stay safe!

It's That Time...

I'm leaving for work in an hour and am beat to pieces, but here are a few bits from around the 'sphere I found interesting but am too pooped to comment on as I'm beginning my shift now at midnight....

As some of you know, I work for UPS Despite the economic mess a combination of the collapse of DHL, orders placed before the collapse and consumer obliviousness, our workload is...well...Christmassy....

Teh Fred has comments on this phenomenon... relax kids its all OK....unless Teh Fred is being sarcastic somehow.

On other serious matters, over at the Long War Journal, in the wake of the Mubai attacks this is NOT what we need to be hearing from the Pakistani military....especially in light of this.

Dennis Prager has thoughts on the targeting of the Chabad House, when it made little tactical sense to do so. Godwins law does not apply here.

Rodger Kimball reflects upon a story from the UK, that is while bloodless, no less disturbing in its own way.....
We can at least take comfort in the fact that it can't happen here.....oh wait...

On a more upbeat note, Next Big Future reports on -77 degree F superconductors. Not room temperature yet, but withing the reach of conventional HVAC tech!

It is often forgotten that Condi Rice is not just a diplomat, but also a classical pianist. Yesterday she got to combine those two skillsets in an unusual combo resulting in "win".

Will at Criminally Wierd brings us this bit of....ummm....

Colleen Doran gets all pervy on her blog...and somewhat surprisingly, she is not the only person today to manage to mention sex and Hitler in one post...

As soon as  you are finished applying the eyebleach, I implore you to look at this tangentially related cautionary tale on the importance of checking over childrens homework....

I am now off to ride the package tsunami....Stay safe everyone!

Elf grrl is a cosplaying Konata...from Lucky Star which has been masterfully translated by Avatar
