Did I mention...

...that today is Mailout Thursday? And that unlike other Mailout Thursdays when I have only to finish stuffing envelopes, today I just now got finished with all that foolish typing gunk I've been working on since last Wednesday and am only now able to make copies? And have I mentioned that all I have left to do before I can come out and play is to put all the copies into envelopes and leave them in the mailbox?

Well, consider it mentioned.

By the way, I want to thank the folks who invented the digital copier. It's one of the most amazing things in the world. I was at a meeting in another building a few months back and had to make copies on their machines--one of the older style copiers with the big rotating drum. Even though it was probably the state of the art in 2000, all I could do was stand there hopping from one foot to the other screaming at it to HURRY UP!

Since it's been a while since I offered any overt political commentary, I think the world would be a much nicer place if those Peaceful Religionists who spend so much time thinking up ways to blow themselves up could maybe set that aside, and work on cool inventions like digital copiers. Or, you know, if creativity really isn't that high on the list, maybe take up farming. The Amish seem to like it, and you hardly ever hear of the need for an Amish Jihad.

Just a thought.
