What a sh!tty weekend I have to look forward to! Saturday, I have to go visit a friend/co-worker (she's on the bubble...) at the hospital because she was in a fairly serious car accident. The car went into the ditch and flipped over, and she sustained a broken neck. She's doing better (although she's in a LOT of pain), and she's not experiencing any paralysis (thank God/Goddess/whatever higher power must be thanked!). It'll be rough for her, but at least she is alive. The other people in her vehicle have minor injuries, broken clavicle, and bleeding on the brain, respectively, and from what I've heard from people who've seen the car, they're all pretty lucky to be alive.

Then, Sunday, lovely Sunday, I have to go to a funeral for a friend's cousin (who is himself a fairly good acquaintance). Don't know what happened in his case, but he was still relatively young, so this is not sitting well with me (not that any death sits well with me). He will definitely be missed.

I'm actually lucky that Monday is a holiday, because there will be no rest for me. Although, I guess I have to admit that I have it better than the people I'm going to be visiting this weekend.

I'd pick a song for the day, but I'm feeling somber. Maybe I will anyways. "Alone You Breathe" by Savatage. It was recorded as a tribute to their guitarist when he died (I believe in a car accident, but don't me to it.) It kinda sorta fits the whole situation, if only in my mind. Plus, it one of my favorite Savatage songs (I like the sad depressing songs...I'm emo without the excellent fashion sense!)

Seriously, if this is not the pinnacle of Emma Stone's acting career...no. It is. I will not be convinced otherwise. Go »

6-X-2006 or It's a holiday! I'm at work!

It is a little known fact that most of the University of Florida system shuts down on the Friday of Homecoming weekend. Unless you are deemed an essential employee, you would be sitting at home right now, possibly with an adult beverage in hand, relaxing. Or, you might be at the Gator Growl, which is some kind of pep rally or something, to get you psyched up for the big game, against LSU of all teams! Go »

8-X-2009 or ...Aaaand I'm Out.

22-II-2007 or Speaking of crap...

I wrestled with not saying this, but I've been transparent about everything thus far, so here's the latest medical drama. I getting a colonoscopy tomorrow. That involves a lot of "cleansing" this evening, and a lot of I can't eat anything today and tomorrow. Go »

5-XII-2007 or I Think I Need a Break

I know this is the last thing anyone wants to hear, but I have been so unable to effectively play Rock Block lately. I can't think 2 moves ahead without forgetting what I was doing. I might be the first person to run out of cards from losing all the time! Go »
