Yeah, I'm having a useless blogging evening.
Which skin is unspecified, other than referring to it as a 'problem area'.
Here's a little reminder that electronic child abuse has a long and proud Internet history.
And if that doesn't suit your tastes, here's a chance to club hippies and baby seals.

This is obligatory brah,
“On this Holocaust Remembrance Day, and on the day when Ahmadinejad can stand up in Geneva at a UN conference on racism and be given an international podium to lash out his hate against Israel and America, I feel it is important to send you 4 letters written by a 20-year-old German girl to a penpal, my mother, in New Zealand, between the years 1933 and 1936. She did not know that my mother was Jewish, thus we have a rare opportunity to see the reaction of the "ordinary "German to the rise of Hitler. I have made bold these parts in blue, and you can see how the mundane chit chat of a young girl becomes more and more entwined with the overtones of the Nazi doctrines. The change in tone over the years in the German woman’s letters is telling and chilling as she describes her adoration and support of Hitler."(h/t discarded lies)

I learned a few lessons this weekend.
1) Moving a 32" television by yourself could easily qualify you as insane.
2) It is not recommended to attempt things that were easy at 21 when you are 29.
3) Dollies are your friend.
4) 3 story houses are tall. They invented ranch style housing for a reason.
5) The location of the breaker for the boiler falls into the category of "critical information" when you move into a new house.
6) I hate moving with the deepest burning passion. There is no activity I'd rather avoid. If I could facecock a verb I'd facecock the hell out of it.
But... we're in the new house. All is well. After a few more improvements the house will be comfortable and livable. I'm sure in a few months the nightmare of this weekend will fade and only the pleasures of home ownership will remain.
Now, does anyone know tips on installing tile slate on the kitchen counters?

A Mississippi woman who was shot in the head not only survived but made herself tea and offered an astonished deputy something to drink, authorities said Friday. Tammy Sexton, 47, remained hospitalized three days after being wounded by her husband, who killed himself after he shot his wife. She is expected to fully recover.We grow 'em tough down here, y'all, but we never forget our hospitality.
"There's no way she should be alive other than a miracle from God," said Sheriff Mike Byrd of Jackson County, Miss.

Then again, there's a bunch of Russian tycoons on there and, frankly, I think the drug lord is being way more honest about how he's getting his money.
I do find it fascinating that there's no mention of the fact that there are multiple Waltons on that list yet there's no mention of Wal-Mart in the main article, at least not that I saw. There's some discussion of it in the blurbs under the pictures, but I would think that some indication that Wal-Mart is doing fairly well would be in order.

Go congratulate her, already!

Moving. And painting and installing counter tops and pulling carpet and still working and taking care of a baby... so... I may be scarce until May.
Facecocks and Memory Holes resume in earnest at that time.
