    Yeah. I was much more afraid of my mother's wrath than the other two. On top of that, when I was a bit older (law school), I worked twelve hour shifts, so getting home at 6:30 to a rager with a bunch of underaged drinkers, with the alcohol being provided by my boyfriend and my brother in law, did not make me happy in the least!

      This has got to be the epitome of a thread hijack. Just saying!!

      Assembly meeting tonight. Allow me to wet your appetite. We recently had an open primary to replace Rep. Don Young's seat after he died. Santa Claus ran in the open primary. He is a man who lives in North Pole (an actual city in Alaska) who legally changed his name. He drew 5% of the vote. Assembly person Chris Constant drew a little over 3%.

        I'll save Celeste the trouble: whet.

        But that is rather funny. "The chair recognizes Santa Claus and grants him three minutes to speak...."
        Bask in the warmth of the Deep South
        No one will be denied:
        Big law suits and bathroom toots;
        We're all getting Dixie-fried.
        But somewhere Hank and Lefty
        Are rollin' in their graves
        While kudzu vines grow over signs that read "Jesus Saves."

          Damn, you ruined my act. I was going to ask him what he planned to wet it with. Hey, it's wacky Wednesday - dangle them prepositions!
          "Think as I think," said a man,
          "Or you are abominably wicked;
          You are a toad."
          And after I had thought of it,
          I said: "I will, then, be a toad." - Stephen Crane

            The dangling prepositions are always so troublesome. I try my best to avoid them in writing, but it is very difficult when speaking. It always sounds so forced!

              Google it. Apparently, despite what our grade-school teachers drummed into us, there's no such rule in English grammar. It's an artifact of when one had to read and write Latin to be considered educated, and English was the vulgate.

                There are far worse things to have hanging out there than dangling than prepositions.
                We are so fucked.
