    Update: The Mom has a gastrointestinal virus. It took 3 IV bags to rehydrate her, but they think they can release her today.

    And I bought her the goddamn iPhone. I feel dirty. Like some kind of drug facilitator or something.

    521.14, after tax. Christ.
    Does that include any amount of service, or is that just the phone?

    Oh no my friend, that's just the phone. And it's not even the good one, this one is a lousy 4 gig one. The most basic plan is around $60 I do think.

    I think Pringles original intention was to make tennis balls... but on the day the rubber was supposed to show up a truckload of potatoes came. Pringles is a laid-back company, so they just said, "Fuck it, cut em up!".

    That's pretty spendy.

    I dunno. I might end up buying one eventually. But not right now.

    But I still want to play with one.

    Is the OS as responsive as they make it seem on the commercial? It seemed too good to be true.

    In so far as I can tell, yes. I'd love to get one for myself, except I can't take camera phones in to where I work. It's a bummer.

    Also, thanks to everyone for the positive mojo. Get an iPhone for your loved ones, and watch it cure their ailments!

    They let me take them into closed areas where I work now. Of course, they're only secret areas. My old job I couldn't even take in cell phones at all.

    Seriously? That's a huge no-no where I work. Classified is still classified amigo, Secret or Top Secret, it's just as bad. I suggest you don't get caught by security with it there. I don't know of any place that condone's the posssion of one, especially in senstive areas like that. I'm not sure what your cognizant agency is (DoD, DSS), but whatch your cornhole. The Man seriously does not look kindly upon those in classified areas, Government or Civillian.

    It's MDA, which I guess it under Air Force with some Army buy-in. It was pretty surprising to me as well, since I worked in DC just prior and they were hyper-sensitive about security - even disallowing any form of windows in skifs because of the looming threat of the Russian Embassy bouncing lasers off the windows and demodulating speech from that.

    It kind of went in this order from when I started working there:

    1) I sat in an open office area. Phones without cameras were allowed in the building but not in the closed areas.
    2) Moved me to a closed office area with both closed and open computers. Cell phones allowed in but had to be powered off and cameraless.
    3) Cell phones had to be cameraless but could be used.
    4) Cell phones with cameras allowed to be used.

    Honestly it's kind of odd.

    Denigration afflicted our vaunted ideals long ago, but such inflictions are difficult to measure, to rise up and point a finger to this place, this moment, and say: here, my friends, this was where our honour, our integrity died.

    The affliction was too insipid, too much a product of our surrendering mindful regard and diligence. The meanings of words lost their precision - and no-one bothered taking to task those who cynically abused those words to serve their own ambitions, their own evasion of personal responsibility. Lies went unchallenged, lawful pursuit became a sham, vulnerable to graft, and justice itself became a commodity, mutable in imbalance. Truth was lost, a chimera reshaped to match agenda, prejudices, thus consigning the entire political process to a mummer's charade of false indignation, hypocritical posturing and a pervasive contempt for the commonry.

    Once subsumed, ideals and the honour created by their avowal can never be regained, except, alas, by outright, unconstrained rejection, invariable instigated by the commonry, at the juncture of one particular moment, one single event, of such brazen injustice that revolution becomes the only reasonable response.

    Consider this then a warning. Liars will lie, and continue to do so, even beyond being caught out. They will lie, and in time, such liars will convince themselves, will in all self-righteousness divest the liars of culpability. Until comes a time when one final lie is voiced, the one that can only be answered by rage, by cold murder, and on that day, blood shall rain down every wall of this vaunted, weaning society.

    I work for a Defense company, and enforce our no camera cellphone policy. I can say without a doubt, we'd string anyone up who brought a camera phone into a classified area. If you're working for a civillian company, you'd fall under Defense Security Services, and they'll crucify anyone if they caught them with a camera in a classified area.

    But when I was with the Navy, prior to that, no one really cared. The disparity was very odd. If you fall under DoD, you're probably okay out of sheer apathy.

    Funny thing, no one watches me. I see all, I know all.

    I'm like that guy in that movie Sliver, who watches people do it in their apartments.

    Only Sharon Stone doesn't work for us, and uh, they're aren't any apartments, and I don't get to watch people do it at work.

    So yeah, It's not really like Sliver. I think I just killed the romance.

    See, I thought Wind Waker kicked TP's ass in terms of story. TP's was a bit of a mess--a bunch of introduced elements that sort of dropped off or weren't developed at all.

    Yeah. I just moved to Edmonton... don't really know that many people here. Part of the homesickness is just boredom.

    When I lived in Guelph it wasnt bad because I had a lot of friends there, and home was only an hour away.

    Right now I couldn't get back to Toronto even if I wanted to - too broke.

    In reality this symbolizes your unwillingess to actually commit to a serious relationship. You are together in everything but your hearts, and you feel compelled to give yourself the option to easily break away should you find yourself suddenly constrained.

    maybe you should see a relationship counselor.

    We would make a relationship counsellor cry, and then we would laugh about it afterwards. I'm imagining it now, and it's making me smile. Not a nice smile.
