More Gifties in the mail! First the tea, sage and the sandalwood prayer-beads yesterday, and now the astounding Fresca sent me some cool loot, too!
The Zombie Survival Guide : Complete Protection from the Living Dead by Max Brooks (Mel’s Son) and Godzilla vs. Destoroyah/Godzilla vs. Space Godzilla (two movies on one double-sided DVD!) Two great flicks that I’ve wanted for a long time.
Thank you, very much!
Porno Bob is a big Tony Robbins fan, and he believes in a lot of other things things that I don’t buy into but he seems like a nice enough guy. This is the first job he’s had in a long where he wasn’t the boss, so we’ll see how he adapts.
CS woke me up in the middle of the night because he forgot his codeRED password while on call. it took me about 5 minutes to shake off the Alpha-state foolishness and get into alert mode at 1:30 in the morning. (When I’m on call, I snap to attention immediately.)
Newbie is suffering a lot, because of SD’s departure without notice. Not only is she having to do trainings, but now she’s got to go to St. Augustine with DL… both of them are fairly uninitiated in that department. What’s worse, there was talk about putting me in a tie, and having me teach the police how to use the system. Ouch. No, not unless it’s the most dire of circumstances. I’d rather do community meetings than a cop thing, if only due to the “I wanna be here” factor of civilians. Police are really busy, and if they’re made to go to a meeting for an hour or so out of their day… well, it can be a hard sell to get them to pay attention to the lesson plan.
A lot of therians got fired today, including probably the best quest maker, Josie2. I’m going to donate some there bucks to her cause, just to say thanks for her good work, and to mourn the loss of an awesome employee.
Tom Cruise as Iron man? hmm… that could work. Stilt-man, maybe? Heck, if Michael Keaton could be Batman, why not?
Chimpanzees struggling to survive amid the destruction of their forest habitat have begun snatching and killing children.
At least eight children have died in the last seven years in Uganda and Tanzania and a further eight injured.
Some of the victims were found with limbs and other body parts chewed off.
Animal experts blame human encroachment on the chimp’s habitat for their aggressive behavior but are divided on whether they are defending their habitat or looking for food.
In one of the most recent attacks in Uganda, documented by conservation biologist Michael Gavin, three-month-old Jackson Alikiriza was snatched from her mother while she harvested potatoes.
Dr Gavin wrote in BBC Wildlife magazine: “They are just trying to get by.
“If they can’t get enough food in the forest they are going to wander out in search of what’s available.”
Frans de Waal, professor of animals at America’s Emory University in Atlanta, said: “I am not sure these cases have much to do with territoriality. I think they rather have to do with predation.”
Which Evil Villain Bad Habit are you?
Closing note:I think Tiny Godzilla looks like a cross between Newt and a Sleestak. Until Later, dear journal.
