I had planned on posting on Saturday, but ended up getting drunk in the middle of the day instead. Then today I decided to get creative, so I went and bought some acrylic paints and painted a sign for the pub that I will someday own. I also read about the American Civil War. We didn't have one of those, seems like good times though. Up next, The War of 1812, because we were actually sort of involved in that one (burned your White House down, suckas.)
On the topic of history, my new favourite video is Washington. Be warned, it's very sweary and full of references to the male anatomy, but it is effing awesome. I'm not sure who it's by, either Cox & Combs or Brad Neely. At any rate, I discovered it through B3ta. B3ta is my favourite website ever, or at least their newsletter is. They pretty much introduced me to the best parts of the Internet. Or the worst?
I don't entirely remember where I found The Do's and Don'ts With Babies, but I do know it made me laugh. Then again, when my family was passing my 4 month-old niece around the dinner table the other night, I made a joke about putting baby shavings on my meal. And that fresh cracked baby is good for your prostate. My family laughed, so I guess we're all pretty messed up.

The great Friends marathon is nearly finished, so maybe someday soon I'll have an album or movie review, but for now I leave you with Primitive Ways. These guys are awesome. They'll learn you how to make a bow and arrow to kill a deer, a knife to dress it, then tan its hide and make boots from the leather. So... go do that.
