"We wear short shorts!"

Inmates have nothing but time.  As trainers, we constantly push that inmates have 24 hours a day to plan escapes.

They also have plenty of time to plan pranks.

As pranks go, replacing an inmates lotion with a depilatory (IE: Nair) is pretty funny.  They step out of the shower, lotion up, and let the burning sensation begin!

The perpetrators got out one line of "Who wears short shorts" before the beatdown began.

Djembe, who perform Touridon.

Years ago, an Early Music group from the broken Eastern Bloc (Russia?  Poland?) came to North Carolina.  They may have visited some other places but I heard a little bit of them there and they also had their music played on

This was when I was just getting serious about early music.  But, things changed, computers crashed, and I ended up loosing a lot of their music and all of their info.

And recently I've been finding little bits of them all around.

I present to you "Touridon" by the group Djembe.

I had hoped that the person who posted this video could give me a little more info on the group...  but no luck.  I do hope that some day I'll get more info on the music group Djembe and that maybe I'll be able to own their CD.  (Or what ever media that their music will be played on in the future.)

Edit:  I've posted an update!

Recognition, even if small.

I'm neither elegant nor loquacious in my writing.  I don't post much on my (unread) blog nor do I post many responses on other websites.

But I do get enjoyment when one of my posts gets either a laugh or other recognition.  It does make me happy.

I'm not bored, I'm lonely.

OK, I just posted because I was upset that Diablo 3 was down.  Now I've got time to do stuff on my own.

But I just realized that it's not about entertainment, it's about interaction.  There are a lot of people I've met in game that I have fun with online.  And I can't talk to them.  I've been texting some friends to see what they are up to, but they are all busy or out of town.  My wife has dinner plans with her friends.

I just want some human interaction.  My daughter will be awake soon, but I'm not going to get her up earlier because I'm lonely.  =o)

Diablo 3 is down.

So, I've got some free time online.  Adorable Preciousness is down for the nap, my errands are done, and I've got the house to myself.

I want to play some video games!  Specifically, Diablo 3.

And the game is down.  Of course.

Sadly, the fact that D3 is an online game means that I can't even play solo at home while the servers are down.  That's very annoying.

Yes, it's easy enough to find something else to do.  But, I kind of don't want to.  It's hard enough for me to get time to play games as is.  It's kind of annoying that when I set my schedule up to get an hour or two of gametime and then it goes out the window...  But I'll live.

Eh, I'm just griping.  But, it gave me something to post about.
