Present for Mordicai.

Before I start talking about being in North Carolina-- hey, I'm in the woods with chickens!-- I should finish a post catching up on last week. Mostly as an excuse to use that picture of Olivia, because how cute is Olivia? Okay, well; Saturday we went to Westchester, so that is fairly well documented. I did forget to say that the Just Dance game that we played at Terra's had the song "Let's Go To the Mall!" by Robin Sparkles, id est, one of the songs from How I Met Your Mother back when that show was still good. fordmadoxfraud & I danced to it; it involved spanking ourselves a lot. Sunday started off with Olivia's birthday, which I haven't talked about. Jenny & I met up with Nino & drove to Bay Ridge for the occasion; Jenny bought a eerily lifelike stuffed dog toy for Olivia as a present. It is...creepy. Did you know non-humanoid figures can fall into the Uncanny Valley? Well, they can! The party was fun; the usual suspects came & I got to bond with Joe's girlfriend, who I hadn't ever really gotten a chance to talk to before, despite being in the same room on several occasions. Oh & Olivia was going through a box of stuff that Kira & Nino had gotten delivered, & was saying "present for Olivia!" for everything they pulled out...except when they pulled out a pair of black pants, which she said was a "present for Mordicai!" Cute, like I said. After that, we came home & had a book club meeting! We'd rescheduled it so people could go to Terra's place on Saturday. Next book is my pick, The Invisibles volume one. Monday was a big Terra hangout day; we'll have to plan one when I get back, which'll be our last chance for hangouts before she moves to China. Oh, hold on, gotta watch this commercial for The Hobbit. It is hard to believe that it comes out next month; heck yes. Alright, Tuesday? Ah, I don't know, whatever! I wrote an article for, we had a cleaning person come, & I went to the gym. I don't know what else; nothing else? I was lazy, I guess. Jenny & I watched sitcoms when she came home. Then Wednesday was a travel day; I packed, we left, did the whole airport thing. I'm not good at airport security; it is always Keystone Kops with me, taking my shoes off, forgetting my belt, whatever. We were running late so I didn't protest when I had to go through the pornoscanner. I'm not sure if contentious objection is a thing I care about for them? I agree that they are a boondoggle, a piece of security theater, & unreasonable search. They aren't effective, are used unprofessionally, all that, yes, I'm on board. I just feel like a top down solution is really the only one that will get rid of them. Maybe that is defeatist. I could just be too lazy to put my convictions ahead of minor discomfort. Not flattering but probably all too accurate.
