I would like to extend my thanks to the individual who invented rumble strips. They're quite effective.

Okay, apparently I'm just an idiot, but what does it mean when somone says they are having "come to Jesus" talks with their boyfriend? I *think* it means they are trying to save the relationship, but this would be a dangerous time to make an assumption based on vague language.

As an afterthought, I don't get how all those 70s, feminist lesbians managed to do the "let's be friends" things with their ex-girlfriends. I find it incredibly disconcerting to listen to *my* ex-girlfriend talk about *her* (ex?) boyfriend.

Ouch. Harry doesn't pull any punches. I knew there was a reason I liked that man. It may be an "unfortunate...characterization," but the basic message is the right one: quit sleeping with the enemy.

In other, completely unrelated news, Yay, yay, yay!

Things that will amuse only me:

I'm wearing the shirt I wore when we went out with Fran for the first time in New Orleans.

I didn't cut my hand open on my skate blade this morning.

Just because I'm congested, it doesn't mean I have a cold.

Although I blithely wandered into poison ivy on August 30, I still wake up every night furiously itching the contact spots.
