Every trip I lose something...
this time I lost my EDGE modem.

I have no idea where it got lost.

I am not looking forward to buying another one.

At least I didn't lose the SIM.

You didn't lose it really. It's now a part of the SEO -- Socialist Empire of Obama.

While in line at the middle school, kids were having a bake sale, and I whispered to Tony, "I'm voting for Obama because I don't want to pay for coffee, I want it all to be collectively owned property so I can have a lemon bar too!"

(and we bought a $1 coffee, handed them a $5 and told them to keep the change...it's for a good cause).

It's for a crappy cause.

The only thing that I ever learned that was being taught in a public school classroom was how to type.

The rest of the time was a miserable waste of 12 years, and I hate the very idea of the places.

This may well be a fundemental difference between you and I.

I learned quite a bit at my schools (very little of it what they wanted me to learn, but still), thought that it was a miserable waste of 12 years of my life, and think that the idea of public schooling is one of the best ideas. Ever.

who said it was a public school?

It was, but....I guess you're right. If you had a bad experience in public school, then NO PUBLIC SCHOOL ON EARTH is a good cause.

Besides, if you couldn't type, where would you be now?

I'm amazed that you took something

that I meant lightheartedly as a JOKE

and turned a tangent about my own feelings

about an ACT OF KINDNESS I performed

into something completely negative.

Has the hurt gone away yet?

Ask fallenpegasus, he's the one who keeps poking his own wounds. I'm not hurt, I'm just amazed. I'm just used to fallenpegasus being more positive, given that I used to see him on vacation, and there was more appreciation for life and the good stuff.

I feel like Tigger, talking to Eeyore.
