So sorry, folks. My compter, which is only a year old, bit it last week. The screen became corrupted from the bottom up, like LCD screen cancer. Everything else works fine, but I can't get online because all the important bits are in the corrupted part. So I haven't been posting. I've not been reading much either. I"m writing this from my mom's computer, which she lets me use every few days.
To make this post marginally interesting, I'll include these (old) links, because we all need some funny sometimes.
Like this thing about the stereotypical girly date, culled from the best of craigslist.
And then there's this from Shakesville debunking the myth of the "nice guy".
Note to the Universe, if you're listening: I know that fall is traditionally the season of reaping what's been sown, but COME ON. I get it. I haven't been living well. I trash all the good things in my life and I burn my long-term potential for short term fuel. I GET IT. Can you please stop breaking my shit and give me a chance to catch up? What's on the list now? Computer, phone, water heater, dryer, which is all fixable, and the broken relationships, which may not be fixable. I'm not saying you should let me off the hook, because you shouldn't, these are important lessons and it's high time I adressed this self-destructive tendancy of mine. I'm just saying turn the gush into a trickle. Please?
Oh, and Universe? Thanks for Damon. Love isn't going to fix my water heater, but it will make my cold showers much warmer :)
