I passed a wonderfully uneventful watch last night, participating in this week's Squirrel Report, where much serious discussion ensued on the matters of gun rights, chain mail bras, annoying ren-faire salesmen and the anticipated Republican VP nomination. Special gracias to Jay G, Alan, Breda and Weer'd Beerd for the entertainmant and for not booting me for admitting that until recently I didn't believe in the Midwest.
Currently I'm en route to raft up to a cruise ship in Manhattan, there to empty our tanks in preparation for a busy weekend of shuttling oil around the waters of NY/NJ. Should be fun. This ship has a reputation for not being easy (read: legally safe) to tie up to. Going to see if I can prove them wrong.
