There is a really aggressive wasp lingering on my back deck.

Maybe if you didn't try to correct him so forcefully when he said "civil wrongs" instead of "civil rights"...

I wish there was an aggressive WASP on my deck. The mental picture is hilarious.

I did a reverse image search hoping to find a larger version for her, but no such luck. Here are some others though. :)

That's a pretty aggressive fallopian response.

It gets pretty dusty and dirty down there... seems like a major health hazard. Maybe strip mining would be safer?

I suppose so; it can get pretty hot.  I just hate hearing how a person could go to jail if they give a miner a drink!  After all the hard work they do, they can't get a cold beer or something?

I was never a miner, but my grandfather was one, and his son was my father, and my father bought alcohol for me a couple times when I was underage, so I guess there is that. I don't really have problems with such things, unless they're out driving drunk. *shrugs*

As long as there are no mine cops following with sirens screaming and lights blazing, miners drunk-driving in golf carts should be fine.

1. Learning to drive (should've done that a while ago)

2. Figuring out a convenient bus schedule to get to my university (I'm commuting)

3. Taking a more active role in my religious community, especially now that I'm never going to see 98% of my high school graduating class ever again

4. Read some books I've never gotten around to finishing

5. Improve my Arabic

6. Go to Egypt, and then, assuming I don't get blown up by a car bomb (lol)

7. Start university

I also need to do more physical activity

Thank you all for your regards. The graduation ceremony is tomorrow evening, pray for me. I really want to get it over with.

I'm a fat guy; but chubby chasers and fat fetishists really disturb me. My friend has a severe fetish, fat is the #1 thing he looks for in a girl. He's a total feeder.
