Sneak Attack

2009-12-28 - 11:39 a.m.

Just in case you didn't know - I actually posted on Saturday.

If you need to read it, go ahead. I'll be here when you get back.


Well, I gave in Saturday night and did something dangerous. I went to an after-Christmas sale.

And it wasn't a planned outing. I went to the local Petco to pick up some filters for the kitteh water fountain. Nearby was a Wal-Mart. So I decided to risk it and see if they had the Grinch on DVD.

Amazingly, they did - and for a reasonable price, too. So I grabbed and used the self-service check-out line to get out quick.

Then I went to the Parks. California Adventure was still open, but it wasn't too busy. I got to do Toy Story Mania, California Screamin', Tower Of Terror, and the usual Monsters/Muppets. Then I headed to the main Park for some Buzz Lightyear and Space Mountain. I also found a nice Christmas present for Brin.

So it was a good day off.


Oh, I forgot to say - I did some online shopping once I got home Christmas Day.

I took a look through my assorted Wish Lists and got this item. The sale price was too good to pass up - it lists for $65 and is usually in the stores for $47.

So a price of less than $24? I grabbed. And they shipped it SATURDAY, so it should be here today. So there's a trip to the PO in my plans for today.

There wasn't anything else I HAD to have. So everything else stays in the Wish Lists.

For now.


So...all that security at the airports, and a terrorist manages to sneak in something flammable.

We can't carry on a bottle of water...but this guy smuggles something in. Oh, and to top it off, he's on the no-fly list.

Thankfully, the last line of defense - the passengers - did what TSA failed to do. Mark Steyn comments here, asking how Charlie Sheen feels now.

Watch for even more security at the airports. Brin, better plan to leave earlier for your flights. Like, the day before.


No, Mr. Cameron - to use your own words, YOU are the "fucking asshole". Not the autograph seeker.


Well, this is going to be a busy week for me. There's an employee meeting tomorrow at 830am. Then of course the New Year's Eve gig...AFTER working a shift at the regular job. Oh yay.

Oh well. Onward.

Be seeing you.

Yeah, I'm so looking forward to the screening, especially since I have an ostomy. Yay! :-P
