Murder Ballads

Nefarious and I got fresh fish today, as in freshly killed. Got to watch the trout being smashed over the head with a giant hammer and twitch about while it was being cleaned, which she found completely fascinating. Later while we were at the pool (which was a good day because another kid her age was there too for her to play with) Caitlin started the meal so I’m looking forward to a delicious feast, and then an evening of entertainment, which I expect will be metaphorically similar to the fish killing we watched earlier.

    mmm fresh trout. They are just starting to run in the rivers and soon my freezer will be full. Tonights debates are going to be a gong show. I don’t know which is going to be better. Watching our Canadian idiots go at it or the brothers down south. either way a great night is about to begin.

    I only half paid attention to the debate, but I can’t say I was overly impressed with either candidate. Palin hammered the nail in the already well sealed coffin for McCain for me, so many things that she said, and was quite proud of, I couldn’t disagree with more. I’m also sick of them using her “seperated from Washington freshness” as a draw. I find that “freshness” entirely fake. She’s about as DC as they come as far as I’m concerned (except for being fairly uneducated ininternational affairs).

    I’m glad you showed her how a fish is killed. Ever since I found out that “meat” is really dead animals, dead as in never coming back, no more for me. At least, not without incredible guilt in the few times in my life that I lapsed. At least she knows.

    I don’t know that it had much impact in that direction, but I agree it’s really important to have a non-theoretical understanding of where food comes from, to the extent that’s still possible.

  5. So I just found the fact that you titled the post Murder Ballads…

    Only because my brother’s hardcore/metal band is named The Murder Ballad. ( If youre even interested in the slightest. Though its not my cup of tea music wise either.

    [...] Supper was a bit of a bust for the women in the house, so we over compensated by making rice crispy treats. Guess who picked the colour. [...]

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
