After 5 long years, justice has been served.
Ajmal Kasab, the lone Pakistani terrorist caught alive after the Mumbai terror attack, was hanged to death.
I am little apprehensive about feeling joy over someone's death, but... Mumbai has seen horrible terrorist activities and this is one of the strongest messages India has ever sent.
And for that I am happy

You're right to feel that way wh...sh. I'm sure there are a lot of folks that feel the same! *hugs*

I think I finally fixed up my place just the way I like it! Wheeee! come Spring I'm going to work on my storage spot and rid myself of a lot of stuff!

Agreed, wh...sh, at long last. I'd be apprehensive too, but I think actions should have consequences. It's not a cheer and celebrate kind of thing, but something else - something somber. *hugs*

Woohoo for getting your place fixed up the way you like, MA. We're in the midst of juggling a bunch of stuff with our storage space and hopefully making room in the live/work space right now. We still have a lot to do, but are really happy with the direction things are headed.

Masters. Remember the leather costume comment? Although, I don't know masters of what.

I can honestly say I don't remember the leather costume comment, but that's probably because it's crowded out by important stuff like song lyrics, and the keywords for remembering my favorite LOLcats.

For a small percentage of Mods, the drug trip and get-high scene has come to be a way of life. The ultimate in weapons for this group of self-alienated "youth" is escaping reality through total oblivion . . .

After going MIA 3 years ago I finally found my army photo album!!!
I'm going to scan all of the pics, save 'em on multiple hard drives and CD, and hide 'em all over the house.

Foxfur, is that you under a spackling of camo makeup? (Was that all you, or did your comrades add some?)

I look forward to more of the army photos. :D

Spackling. Sounds like a modern perversion.
I like it.

A closeup of the spackling...

That looks like the balcony at the top of the ski lift at Banff/Lake Louise. Is it?
