Got two mice in the traps. Only 26,000 more and I'll have that fur coat.

Well played Sundae.

Mouse skins are so so soft, make sure you chew those hides.

:lol: A fur coat ... now I know what to do with these little critters.

sundae - good decision. I'm proud of you

ortho - we'll gladly make you a squirrel coat. for the collar where tails are uncomfortable, we use rat skins. we dry tan, so make sure you don't wear it in the rain

Much happiness tonight!
a) No call-back from last Friday's ultrasound = no news is good news. :D
b) Enjoying some aged Manchego on Almond Nut-Thins with an Oregon Pinot gris
c) Have an intense academic day tomorrow, after which relaxation will be in order :)
d) Going to jump up and down in the 'Oakland Zoo' (i.e. student) section for a Pitt Panthers bball game Saturday afternoon - might even paint my face Pitt colors!
d) Then going to see The Hobbit (part 2)!

Simple things can make me happy and tonight, it's this. I saw it at Kroger and had to get it. :-D

This seemed more appropriate here than in the video clip thread ...

Arrgh! No! Why can't I embed this video? Melissa Etheridge and Joss Stone ... :(

Thank you, thank you, thank you Bruce! I learn how to do this and then chemo-brain cleans out my short-term memory. But I love, love, love Melissa Etheridge in this.

Oooooh. Nicely done, J!

Making me happy is:

Working on my thesis I've leaned very heavily towards the property crime side of things, and done very little towards the section on violent crime. So, since I am now all about the getting serious and shit, and trying to do a chapter a month to get this bastard in, and having more or less finished the introduction and the first chapter (defining terms and assessing sources and methodology and stuff) I decided to start work on the violence section and get that sorted before going on and doing the property crime section, which should pretty much write itself with the copious notes I already have.

I have been dreading this bit. It just feels thinner on the research and less accessible - stepping out of my comfort zone.

It's coming along nicely! And, having had very little success finding anything in the soldier journals and memoirs to use as evidence for soldiers' attitudes to and experiences of crime (except for crimes of survival whilst on campaigns, such as during the terrible march from Corunna) I've suddenly found a little flurry of examples showing attitudes towards violence as am incidental day to day thing - and an example of a cuckolded soldier killing his wife and then not being put on trial for murder because he was blinded by passion and because her behaviour was considered to have precipitated his action.
