Yes on Proposition 8

For the first time in my adult life, I have a sign on my front lawn and a bumper sticker on my car proclaiming my view on Proposition 8. I was not nervous about putting the signs and stickers up, it is one more perk of living in a society where we can express our views on politics and how we want our society to operate.

I heard some folks worry that their prop 8 signs might be stolen, but we haven't had the sad experience of other San Diegans.

Our small experience happened last night at the most exciting football game I have been to (no this isn't sarcasm, it was really exciting - I'll tell you about it later)

Doug's prop 8 bumper sticker had a slight modification after the game.

Smells like..............

Did you know that if you place a bowl of oatmeal in the microwave, set it to cook for 14 minutes and leave the office that no one will realize what is happening until approximately 12 minutes and 32 seconds have passed?

One of the guys I work with (we'll call him Joe ;-) found that out yesterday.

When I stopped the microwave with 1 minute 28 seconds to go there was a small amount of smoke pouring out of the back of the microwave and I decided to wait until it cooled down, take it outside and let it air out somewhere that wasn't the enclosed space that is our office. Unfortunately "Joe" arrived back right then and opened the microwave up letting all of the rest of the smoke escape.

Guess what it smells like this morning? I'll put it this way, it is almost as bad as when they mix tuna for lunch!
