It's like... Justice

  1. What's the last thing you bought yourself, just for fun?
  2. How many keys do you carry?
  3. If you had to sell your soul for one thing, what would it be?
  4. What is one talent or skill you don't have but always wanted?
  5. If you could have the world's largest collection of one thing, what would it be?

The last thing that I bought for myself, just for fun, was a new purse, that was ridiculously expensive, but its so damned hot that I had to have it.

I carry about 8 keys. A couple are for work, a couple are for my car, a couple are for my house, and a couple are for my Mom's house and car.

If I HAD to sell my soul for one thing, it would probably be to be a wealthy, published, successful author. I really want to write books for a living some day.

Most of the talents and skills I've always wanted revolved around being better at the sports I participated in. You know that kid that had enough talent to be competitive but could never win a damned thing? Yeah. That was me.

I would love to have the world's largest collection of hockey memorabilia. Or failing that (if that's not specific enough) the largest collection of autographed hockey Jerseys.


So you'll probably notice that I haven't answered the Weekly Topic.

This would be because I'm a leftist tree hugging hippy (at least that's what Americans I've talked to have called me, along with a sinner, enemy of the USA and a freak) so I believe in Religious Freedom, and anything that people should be open to any career regardless of their religion.

If he's good enough, he should be allowed to play. How hard would it be for the league schedule-makers to try to ensure that they didn't play on Friday nights? And that their games had a late start on Saturdays? Or that they played on Sunday afternoons? It could be done.

In my line of work, we have a saying. Treating people the same isn't the same as treating people FAIRLY.

You have to take in account individual differences, and you have to make accommodations for them. He's an Orthodox Jew and he has a right to both play hockey and practice his religion. There should be NO question of choice.

But of course. We do usually travel in large groups don't we?
