    If nothing else the 40-something wet weather gives me a perfect excuse to wear my thick, beloved grey hoodie. All the Snuggies on earth combined can't come close to matching the plush comfort and toastiness of this thing. :)

    TIL that I am, in fact, kind of color blind. I took this test and did really badly. Also, I found out that Sesame Street's Ernie is orange, not brown. This has rocked my whole worldview.

    Arkansas is only one of the six states in the US that bans atheists from holding public office.

    Kim, I've seen this happen with a couple of pics you've posted previously (or not seen, to be more accurate) and I think what's going on is that your album permissions aren't set to let everyone view images. You might want to check to see whether your settings are for pics to be visible only to those on your friends list.

    ..what a filibuster is. Genuinely fascinating as we don't use term here.

    The English term "filibuster" derives from the Spanish filibustero, itself deriving originally from the Dutch vrijbuiter, "privateer, pirate, robber" (also the root of English "freebooter"[2]). The Spanish form entered the English language in the 1850s, as applied to military adventurers from the United States then operating in Central America and the Spanish West Indies such as William Walker.[3][4] (See Filibuster (military).)
