Fitful sleep – that is the individual being efficient on the time usage and combining sleep with aerobic exercise.  Efficient for the sleeper, rough on the other individual in the bed.


I have kidinbox who is going to graduate from a university near us. In preparation for this event, kidinbox was getting the information needed for the new designation of graduate – “what is alumni?” I defined this term as appropriately as possible, “That is the term applied to those graduating from an institution allowing that institution the privilege of harassing you perpetually for donations.”

The combination of a liar and an idiot. Washington is full of these.

I have been thinking about the meaning of the American Dream realizing that the definition has been rewritten to something encompassing “Reynolds Law.” It’s time to rewrite it to a more realistic definition. I have previously proposed “being paid for one’s work,” but that doesn’t take into account the graft and falsehood perpetrated by groups like the unions that exist for the sole purpose of gaining greater than market wages. With that in mind, my latest proposal is: “being paid a market wage for one’s work.”

The act of pulling a string behind yourself and walking around the house. There will be a cat on the end of the line by a single pass. (I used to do this as a teenager)

(at church) keeping up with a 3-year-old in the nursery, hall, down towards the bathroom, in the sanctuary, etc.

1.)That activity you do in exchange for money. (welfare excluded, of course)
2.)The activity that once done well enough, gives the opportunity to do it again.
