Man, I didn't even know some of these groups were still around! I mean, Black Oak Arkansas?!?!

On the home front, Mookie went to have her head eyes examined. She doesn't need glasses. Bummer, because I already had the perfect nickname for her:


Oh well, I guess I'll just have to settle for the good news that I won't be shelling out for prescription specs. She's probably a little bummed too, because she's already expressed a preference for these. Not a problem, sweetie. As soon as you get a job you'll be able to afford them.

This place looks like a dog cemetary. There are dead-looking dogs lying all over the floor. I just thought I'd mention that, because I almost rolled over one with my desk chair. I'm using my wife's old (and now unneeded) wheelchair as a desk chair, because it's here. It cost too much to just get rid of (freakin' insurance wouldn't pay a single cent), and we're still not sure that someday she might not need it again. Sooooo, I have a desk chair. And though the dogs are pretty good about staying out from under it, I almost ran over Sam just now. He'll probably get even by cuddling up while I nap and then ripping a nasty ol' dog fart. He's old. And treacherous.

Oh yeah, for those paying attention (both of you), the bite turned out to be from a homeless guy. They can smell like zombies after awhile I guess, which is why I was confused. Also, the fact that he was unwashed and unshaven (like for weeks) made me think he might have been a hippie (translation: liberal). Anyways, the odd feeling I was having was simple indigestion. I went home, washed the wound with soap and water, sprayed a little antiseptic, tossed back a shot of medicinal rum, and I'm feeling much better now thank you.

Where's a slimy ambulance-chasing lawyer when you need one?

Which brings me to my next drive-by blathering. The list of great blogs worth reading is astonishing, and it amazes me when even unintelligible and piss-poor sites have people visit and comment. Hey, you. Leave a comment. Make me feel loved.
