Hey, Leaguers!

As you may have noted, the last week was a busy one for your League. Between work, sick cats, etc... it was a long week. We hope to get back to your regular scheduled programming as soon as possible.

Mostly I was just super tired by the end of the week, so the weekend has mostly been spent trying to remain immobilized, get some shut eye and read some comics.

Just a quick reminder that you can always make the best of a bad situation...

Now those guys REALLY know how to use an hour a day in the rec yard...

Why can't our American prisoners be this industrious/ entertaining? You don't ever see Aryan Nation or the Mexican Syndicate putting anything this good together. And you KNOW they wouldn't welcome the tranny prisoners as a key part of their act if they DID put it on. Some people have more artistic vision than others, I guess...

This coming week should be fairly colorful. The in-laws must be getting fairly serious about buying a house or something, because rumor has it they're returning to town. Jamie is also having a medical procedure Thursday that's going to take her out of pocket for a day or so. I'm taking Thursday and Friday off work to spend some time with Jamie during that, so we'll see this next work week will be cut short. The fun part is knowing that I will most likely be working from home over the weekend. Making eLearning waits for no man.

Potter-Mania has struck League-Central. I'm a bit of a jerk, so after picking up a copy of the new book for Jamie, I went ahead and read the last three pages.

spoiler alert

I'm not sure I agree with Rowling's decision to turn all seven books into a dream. After all, that leaves Harry a poor, abused orphan living under the stair well. I mean, it's nice to know he has a fantasy life, but six books' worth? And then making him forget the dream? Even if the owl was looking at him from the window... I dunno.*

end spoilers...

The other night I was watching "To Catch a Predator" with Jason and Jamie, a show I've seen once or twice before, and I was, once again, glad that kids are nowhere in my future. I can't really envision the effort parents have to put in these days trying to keep their fourteen year old kids who've decided they're already grown up, from making some really awful decisions when the access to kids online is incredibly easy. Telling girls that they mature faster than boys, coupled with an internet connection, seems like fairly dangerous territory.








*Not actually a spoiler as far as I know. I made this up.

Where did that Thriller thing come from? I'm utterly fascinated.

I believe that prison is in the Philippines.
