Boozhoo nindinawemaganaag! Happy Candlemas/Imbolc/Brigid/Groundhog Day etc. depending on your tradition preferences! For the none-of-the-above types, happy Friday!

I hope the Boston authorities can see this, because I'm doing it as hard as I can. I have been alternately LMAO and OMSO (outraged my socks off) since the bomb scare the other day. The climate of fear the gub'mint has been fomenting for the last 6 years was made manifest and of course they're doing everything they can to put the blame elsewhere. I think we'll see more of this in the future, and it'll only result in more clampdowns on freedom of expression, movement and privacy. Berdovsky and Stevens should have all charges dropped (or at least reduced to illegal flyering and littering) and the City of Boston should eat the rest of its crow and get on with life.

My hubby will be back tonight, which is nice. It's weird not having him around. Tonight is [livejournal.com profile] feralbear's SCA farewell party, so I got a car reserved; it's out near the airport, which is convenient -- I can go out to the party and then when Ron's plane lands, I'll go pick him up and bring him back to the party. He is coming back with carry-ons only so he shouldn't get held up by Philly's notoriously bad baggage handling.

This weekend: not much going on, I think. Ron is planning to head up to NYC for a Saturday day-trip for a hobby-related thing, and I will probably clean our bathroom! I know -- Chris, don't overdo the fun, moderation in everything, blah blah blah -- but it would be good to head off the microbes before they take over. Sunday is the Super Bowl and the Liberty Bears' social so I will probably watch the game at the bar and then hang with da other bears.

Oh. I lemminged and started a bearciti.com account. In a stunning reversal of my usual MO, I'm on there as "Chimakwa". The site looks OK but the performance SERIOUSLY lacked last night. I eventually gave up after it refused to bring up the message box a fifteenth time. I was even using IE since it says it's not Firefox compatible; I was using IE6 but if that was the problem, well, they'll have to make IE7 not suck sweaty goat balls before I'd consider upgrading. Even hot bearflesh is not worth bending over for an unlubed MS upgrade. Also, in the rush for the exits, don't forget to check out the not-sucky performance of [livejournal.com profile] psifire's www.bearlix.com. I'm on there as Anglicub (in an not-stunning not-reversal of my usual MO.)

Oh! (part II!) I just got an email saying that one of my favorite bands that's not from the 80s and is still together (Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers) is putting out a new album in March. Woohoo! Their frontman was the frontman for 90's one-hit-wonders The Refreshments (well, two hits, if you count the theme to King of the Hill.) Here's a sample from an earlier album, that always cracks me up a little: Jack vs. Jose.

Later 'gators!
