We were out and about today and The Younger kept insisting upon going to Wal★Mart; I
suppose he wanted to buy the toy department (or rather, us to buy
him the toy department, it being so close to his birthday and all) so we
capitulated and the lot of us (Spring, her father (who came in late
yesterday), The Older, The Younger and I) ended up walking into the local
Wal★Mart SuperCenter (clearing customs took forever!) only to
find the melodious strains of Christmas carols being piped in over the loud
speakers and shelves filled with festive Yule-tide decorations.
Words fail me …
It's not even the middle of September and already the Christmas
season is upon us …
I guess that's what happens when you enter a Wal★Mart SuperCenter on a
Friday the 13th.
You have my permission to link freely to any entry here. Go
ahead, I won't bite. I promise.
The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
