Well, it's midnight. Here we go.

I think I'll go to bed now. My head hurts from doing this all day.

Tried one of those Aztec or Mayan-style chocolates -- the ones with the chili powder in them.

Yuck. That is all.

Wow, what did you guys think of today's Gospel reading?

The priest who gave the homily pointed out that Jesus was not condemning the rich man because he was rich, but for his indifference to Lazarus's suffering during his lifetime. The priest also pointed out that even now, the rich man still thought of Lazarus as a servant, asking that Lazarus be sent to his five brothers to warn them.

Loved the Amos reading too. Amos is my favorite OT prophet.

T-shirt I just saw:

"VILAGE IDIOT".

And here is today's senseless gun death, ladies and gentlemen:

Road Rage-Related Killing in Vermont.

"The champagne and turkeys on the tables of our gratefull capitalists are very cheap . . .

We paid for them!" -- banner in a photograph of a demonstration by socialists and anarchists in Chicago on Thanksgiving Day, 1884. They marched up and down Prairie Avenue, where the elite of the day like Pullman, Fields, and Palmer lived, playing "The Marseilles" and ringing doorbells. Naturally, no one answered.

p.s. I misspelled "grateful" because that was the way it was actually spelled in the banner in the photo. I think that somehow it adds to its effectiveness.

Funniest "World's Dumbest" incident ever!

That show is my new guilty pleasure. They just did a segment where this guy went into a convenience store, handed over some money to pay for a few items, then pulled out a gun and demanded all the money from the cash register.

Typical robbery, right? Here's the rest of the story: The robber's mother had driven him to the store, and was waiting in the car. Apparently sensing that something was wrong, she went inside. When she saw what her son was up to, she said, "What the hell are you doing? What are you, stupid? Give me that damn gun!" Then she snatched the gun out of his hand and added, "Your daddy gonna kick your ass too."

I love this show!

Off to Taco Bell.

Sometimes I just gotta have one of their taco salads.

Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market -- anybody else seeing these TV ads?

Now Wal-Mart is apparently trying to become a neighborhood grocery store? Yeah, right.

Anybody else watching "Love it or List it" right now?

This couple has got to be the worst I've seen on this show -- real jerks. How Hillary and David are stopping themselves from strangling these two, I don't know.
