I just read your last blog post, and I'm really sorry. I know you said "no reply", but I hope you won't mind my addressing you here in my own blog... so far only seemingly reserved for similarly worrisome topics. I don't have your e-mail and wouldn't put this out on TC, but I am glad for you that it wasn't more serious. God only knows how lucky I've been in a number of accidents now... none of which included the wearing of my seatbelt, and one of which I also fell asleep going about 90 on I-95!

Not making any kind of statement with this (since I, myself, have been guilty of it, too!), but I recently read something along the lines that attempts are being made to create technology that will measure fatigue in much the same way that it can currently measure intoxication... thus, perhaps, paving the way for charges similar to DWI ("DWF"?) -- because it has pretty much the same resulting effects! I honestly don't know what to think about this... but I'm glad that your family hasn't suffered a great loss for it.

That's why I keep my e-mail address a closely guarded secret! ;)

No, everything's better now, I think. Now my grandmother is trying to kill herself, so it all goes back to normal. :) I appreciate the thought.

Life Is Killing Me

Not softly, no song, and I'm pretty fed up with it. Go »

Brutalized and Officialized...

Welp... I've been thinking about how to go about making this update for a couple of days now -- blog or TC... poll or no poll... Go »

Brokeness... That's *My* Livelihood

So, yeah... this is the longest period of involuntary unemployment I've experienced in at least 20 years, I believe. But to add insult to injury... Go »

There's No Place Like Home...

Another update from the Land of Oz and tornados... Apparently, I wasn't too far off in thinking that an insurance deal would be nice... they're worried about it, too. Go »

Must Love Dogs

Someone I know (I guess you could say "a friend") who's been trying to break into politics for the last six months or so (starting with a mayoral race, lol) recently asked me (via Facebook chat) how I was doing (hadn't seen or talked to him in months). This is pretty much how that went: Mayor McCheese: So how's it going? Me: Shitty. Go »

Still in Kansas, Thankfully (or North Carolina, anyway!)

Apparently, a tornado hit Maysville, NC Sunday, missing "my" house (or Ed's, with a lot of my things still in it) by about a mile. Used to browse that store for good junk! Go »
