    It's long-johns time in Canada again. Today I stepped outside and my thoughts froze. I defrosted them with a hairdryer and realized that it wasn't my thoughts that had frozen but my hair, so while I thought (in a frozen kind of way) that it was my thoughts that were frozen, the act of defrosting my thoughts actually dried my hair. Truly a double positive outcome, which one needs in Canada just to make it to Tim Horton's. Commuting is even harder up here in the frozen North. We have to take the hair dryers to the huskies to even think of getting to work.

    You try telling that to the the kids of the future, and they won't believe you.

    I had a crew start to put a roof on an old house today. Halfway through a holding wall crashd, sending the whole of the already shabby tworoom house in a lopsided creativily artistic mess. It had been apprved but some old things cannot be fixed.

    LOL, I loved that video on the economics. I read yesterday that they've got 5 days to save the world from the economic disaster. That means today they've got just 4 days.

    Well, Harold Camping's latest new deadline for the end of the world has come and gone, and we're all still here. The article I read said that he couldn't be reached for comment. Maybe he got raptured all alone?

    Duct tape creates silence (properly applied).

    We're expecting 4"-6" of SNOW Saturday night on coastal CT; 6"-10" inland. Snow. In October. And high winds and temps around 32F (0C), so if you don't hear from me for a few days, it's because we've had another long-term power outage. And if you never hear from me again, it'll be because I froze to death.

    For the record, "normal" October weather usually means days in the low to mid 60s and nights in the upper 40s to low 50s. No snow. This is just insane.

    So...I just found out a friend committed suicide and I want to talk about it, but I don't want to talk about it...mainly because I don't know if it's public yet. It seems like no one knows.

    I'd rather not be the one to bring it up...especially if the family doesn't want to make it public that it was suicide...I don't want to be the one who exposes it.

    I'm kind of sad (especially b/c I just dreamt about him Sunday night...I dreamt that I was looking for him and I couldn't find him and was asking everyone where he was...even though I hadn't seen him in a few years). I woke up thinking I should contact him soon. I didn't know he was already gone.

    But I think I'm still in shock because I'm not crying. And maybe I'm just being understanding because I'm thinking, "With that much stress, maybe he just needed the relief?"

    I don't know...but I have 70,000 things to do and I can't get one of them done if I don't get this out...and I'm doing so.

    Oh, Bunni, I am so sorry. Yes, I would say you are still in shock. Hang in there and never blame yourself for not knowing
    his situation. God bless.

    Thanks for the kind words, Zelda. I'm sadder than I realized.

    We'd been friends since 8th grade, but we actually started off as enemies. Pretty funny story I always liked telling.

    He will definitely be missed.

    the ball?

    (5) What fruit has its seeds on the outside?

    I really want to reach the 10 000 comments before this forum closes down. The good news is that I'm also looking for poems and stories to save for our next book, before everything disappears together with the forum.

    So...just found out I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder...11 years ago! When was the doctor going to tell me?!

    And apparently, I shouldn't have taken a few of the anti-depressants or any anxiety meds b/c it triggered (and it did) some stupid shameful stuff!

    *sigh*

    Meh, at least I know now.

    So when I got to work this am, the computers decided it was 12:48am Feb. 25, 2028. Since I don't have movies programed in for more than a week or 2 in advance, I could sell popcorn and soda but no tickets. Took a little time but finally got that straightened out. (This happened once before and we owed our cleaner about 3 mill for 17 years on the clock.)
