Mental illness runs in my family so I'm very careful about my brain chemistry. And anyway, I'm so easily amused that alcohol is redundant :-p

FYI, today I am wearing my shit-kicking pointy black leather boots with bigass straps and silver knobby things. They look something like these but with bigger buttons and more straps and pointier and scarier:

It's morning in the U.S. so I'll skip the wine but the chocolate is a great way to start the day! Thank you kindly!


by the way, what font did you use for your blog title? Only if it's a freeware font, I might have uses for that in some of my artwork. However, I now have so many fonts saved on this computer that I could supply typefaces to the entire world's newspaper industry ...

The moment I see an ornamental looking font, I think "add that to the collection". I am a font hamster. :)

Read part of your blog. It is interesting.

Thank you! I try to keep it interesting, but lately I haven't been as ticked off by religious people as usual. But since I live in Indiana there will be more food for thought! It seems that getting ticked off usually signals there's some real wrong-thought happening that needs to be exposed to daylight.

Lo and behold, I already have the font! It's "Kelly Ann Gothic". Ever tried keeping track of over 3,000 fonts?

While I was at that place you linked to above, I found some more fonts to add to the collection. :)

And he considers himself a rational skeptic :roll: . There isn't a wine bar, and there's no chocolate gateau either.


But there is :popcorn: (Uncle Orph'sTM popcorn - "when only the best will do" )

But welcome just the same.

Actually, I simply spent time downloading the fonts. :)

I've since posted a good deal, though while the search facility is borked, you won't be able to tell unless you visit certain key threads in Creationism, Nontheism, or the science sections, plus of course the infamous wildlife pictures thread in Social & Fun, which is the place I let fly with all manner of entomological musings. :mrgreen:
