I've worked on Easter more times than I care to think about.
Had a Credit Card stolen out of our mailbox once, didn't cost us anything thankfully.
On a somewhat lighter note:
We bought one of those 1-liter bottles of Soy Sauce at the Asian market two weeks ago. I noticed today that is is now barely half full.
For a family of Americans it seems we are using it fairly fast.
I was amazed at how much better it tastes than the brands we had traditionally bought. According to the label the manufacturer has been making Soy Sauce for 350+ years. I think they know what they are doing...
Cody that sucks. I've been afraid to use my card for a while now.
News on my tooth: It was able to just be filled though probably if it happens again going to need a crown but there is enough tooth and my roots are strong enough where I'd not need a root canal so that is good. Hopefully this is the last time I see the dentist to my cleaning appointment in the summer. Also the numbness is wearing off and the mild pain is starting to set in. May have to take a motrin or something to get some sleep tonight.
So I caught my cat eating cherry pie, or at least licking up the remnants from a plate some pie had been on. So I went online to try and figure out if cherries are bad for cats or not. Two websites tell me they are fine, as long as they don't eat the leaves or stems. Two tell me they are toxic, especially in higher amounts. Hmmm... I guess I will have to call the emergency clinic.

I have no idea. I'm assuming someone got my debit card number. It was probably in the big processor leak recently. I have no idea what all happened as the transactions won't post until Monday sometime. I reported the card stolen, but at least I have birthday money I can deposit and cash until my new card arrives.
I wonder if I have a bunch of Match.com memberships charged like the last two times my cards were stolen? You think if you were going to do credit card theft you wouldn't do it on a site where your name, address, picture, and personal information are all present. Dumb asses!
They'll pay for ruining your birthday.
Hope everything turns out okay in the end.
And since I don't really want to post it in a thread that actually matters, here's my 5000th post.
Grats Coffee God! Now you should be called the Posting Coffee God!
Well, I started Chemistry.com. There is someone out there that I can make happy and that will not make me miserable. Perhaps I will meet Ms. Right, or perhaps Ms. Right now.... OUCH! When did my conscience get a hold of that baseball bat?
Anyways, random thought of the day. This is what I would have a somewhat modern war game.
What if say by 2018, the U.S.A. has finally figured out how to do Fusion energy. And by that time, the U.S.A. has pulled out from several world areas and has gone into a slightly more isolationist stance in order to rebuild its economy and infrastructure. Though it maintains close ties to several allies, the U.S. presence is not as strong as it used to be.
Filling that role in some areas is Russia and China. Both powers want to take lead roles in the place of the U.S. Now that the U.S. has greatly cut its oil consumption, the middle east is left up for grabs in several areas. Fusion energy is tricking and expensive at first, so these areas are still valuable.
The game would take place during an escalation between China and Russia over India and Pakistan. Other nations drawn into the conflict would be North Korea, Iran, some of the other middle east nations. The U.S. gets involved once South Korea, Japan, and Israel are threatened by both sides. Will peace be restored, will the world be destroyed, or will there be one to rule them all? The game should have multiple endings and multiple sides to play on.
It's a tough job, but somebody has to do it. To boldly go where no main character will go...
