Nope. Not these. They were made from materials that historians are pretty sure was honestly traded for. And my understanding had always been that the pillaging was just an incentive to encourage people to trade favorably with them

Oh lordy

On another note: insomnia is an ass kicker. Looking forward to my crash day. I've been seeing double this morning.

Well here I am today, sitting at the hospital waiting on them to take my wife back for surgery. She is having 2 disc in her neck replaced. I really hope this works and she can get over the pain she is having in her back and shoulders. They Astrid after the surgery it would be 6 to 8 weeks before she would really be able to do anything. She is really nervous but I just keep telling her that when things works out will be all worth it.

I can feel it coming... my eyelids are getting so droopy and my eyes are so bloodshot...I look stoned outta my gourd.

I'm working another double tomorrow...worked one today...and yesterday...and an extra single this past Saturday...that's at least 32 hours of overtime...that I can remember...

I can feel myself ready to fall down right now. Mmmmmmmmm..... this tile floor in the office is gonna be so nice and cool.... I haven't gotten over 3 hours of sleep a night in at least 3 weeks.
