Some crasshole in a big pickup truck passed me way too close on the bike today and peeled out, sending up gravel, as he took off. So I flipped him off in his rear view mirror (not very mature, I know, but he scared the shiitake out of me and that was my honest reaction.) He pulled over about 100 yards ahead of me, got out and started in my direction, so I pulled over and stopped too. I wasn't going to keep riding towards him so I figured I'd just wait til he got bored of harassing cyclists for sport and entertainment, and left. Which he eventually did, but not before pulling out his cell phone and taking either pictures or video of me. What the actual fork?

I'm sorry about your bad experience, mt. Good for you for not getting near him. There's way too many crazy folks around these days.

I will never understand why drivers encased in 2+ tons of metal feel so threatened by bikers. MT, good on you for stopping away from him. I'm glad you're safe.

Mr. Shankly, I'm so sorry. Cancer is the worst. Many hugs!

That's so scary and infuriating, MT! I agree with kara kara that drivers being threatened by bikers makes no sense. I also think you reacted very well considering.

I've decided to stop trying to make friends at work. Just because I like them doesn't mean they want to accept me into their (tiny! I work with five people!) clique. Fair enough.

I'm sad though.

I'm reading a story online about how Jenny McCarthy's son called the cops on her for texting and driving. Her response was to throw his phone out the window of the car. And she was boasting about this on her radio show.

Thank goodness she's saved all those innocent children from immunity to rubella and meningitis! Saved them so she can MOW THEM ALL DOWN with her distracted driving.

Way to go, Jenny. You're a real forking class act.

The town I teach GED in has the banners up for their annual "Edible Food Festival." What does that even mean?

Some food festivals are only lookable or smellable. Our local apple festival involves no apple eating whatsoever.

My last two days have been a crazy mix of worst day type stuff with really nice things mixed in. I woke up with my throat feeling so closed up and sore that I could not swallow my own spit or talk properly. I ended up in the ER, where they found an abscess. So they had to give me a shiitake load of morphine so they could drain it (so, so painful and awful). But my partner and friends have taken the very best care of me. And I got to watch the Labyrinth high on morphine.

Ugh that sounds terrible Olives.

I just spent a really long time transcribing an interview for something I need to get written tonight and then I accidentally closed it without saving it. Apparently it is not backed up anywhere. GREAT.

Oh sheesh Olives, how great that you are getting the support you need, but the abcess sounds horrific. Hope your recovery goes well!

Feel better soon Olives!

Every morning since I started this job I PPK/cuddle my cat in the morning until the last possible moment I can to put off getting ready for work. I've got it down to a fine science--I can get ready in less than 15 minutes (I shower at night) and that even includes breakfast, feeding cats, teeth-brushing, sometimes hair straightening, dressing, packing lunch, make-up if any, and scrambling around to pack up my computer and work documents and finding my keys. I have to say, I'm pretty impressed with my commitment to laziness until the last possible moment.

Thanks guys. I really am healing fast. And I do feel so lucky to have tons of support.

Though man, I wish I had a kitty to snuggle with.

Thank you everyone for your kind words. They can't do aggressive chemo on him because of his bad heart and his age, but he says he's going to try whatever he can to stick around as long as possible. I'm hoping to see him when he comes to Boston for a Red Sox game but I'm really scared he won't be in good enough health to come here. I also found out that my great-aunt has also been diagnosed with cancer, and that my cousin is being stationed in Kuwait for a year and that his wife is pregnant again.

Hugs to Mr. Shankly and Olives.

vijita, I do the same thing in the mornings. I know exactly how long it takes me to get ready/drive anywhere, and fart around on the internet until the last possible moment. Winning at procrastination.

RAGING. Our A/C is broken (again. It first died the week we moved in) and the home warranty company is saying that they expedited someone to come out tomorrow afternoon. It's Arizona. It's hot. Our evening low this time of year is around 90F.

UGH.

edit: sorry, this is first world problem-ish, I realized, upon posting.

It's Wednesday and I just have to make it through a tasting tour (easy enough), and hour in the woods with 5 boys, and an afternoon of robot building, and then I get to have happy hour with one friend and then make dinner with my best friend!

I've been feeling incredibly worn down (fell asleep last night at 9:30, slept straight til 7am - unheard of for me) with camp + HFS work. After this week, I just have 3 days of a morning camp (plus the HFS in the evenings) and then I get to go out of town and see my family, visit an amusement park, and go to a book festival and beer festival (in one day!). I called off work for an entire week, just to do some things that I want to do and it feels incredibly naughty, but I know I deserve and need it. And it fits into my budget well enough.

Just pretending that the week after that I won't be busting my butt getting ready for the fall semester/teaching and the entire madness starting all over again.

This is just. I can't. SO AMAZING.

http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sfc/wri/4588941466.html

In case it gets taken down or reported:

Quote:
Emotional Writer Needed For Support Community for Affluent Individuals

Special community for people who have earned a lot of money or been born into a wealthy family needs a blog ghostwriter. The focus of the community is providing psychological support for the problems money brings -- family tensions, unfulfillable expectations, boredom, etc. To do this you must be intimately familiar with the problems faced by wealthy people. If you grew up wealthy or through some other means can write detailed blog posts on this topic, please get in touch.

The posts need to be highly personal, emotional and have a strong editorial voice. These are anything but generic lectures. We are looking for 3 posts per week and each post pays $30. If you're interested, please send a brief cover letter with some suggested topics so we can see that you really can come up with specific topics which touch the hearts of people from affluent families along with some writing samples of your personal, emotionally charged writing. It should all be pasted into the body of the email. We can't open attachments. Thanks!


I mean, I would hope the candidate is already independently wealthy, if they're only getting $90 a week to blog.

Also, I half-expect to find another CL ad seeking someone to tutor wealthy individuals on how to open email attachments.

Aside from the whole "problems money brings" thing...

If you're really looking for personal, emotionally charged writing, you can't hire someone who's pretending to be someone else. Why does it have to be a ghost writer? Why can't they just hire a writer and actually credit her/him?

poor bored rich people. they need all the help they can get!


Speaking of rich people....the guy at the bus stop who asked me if I liked gene wilder movies, and then told me i reminded him of his therapist and asked if i was rich a few weeks ago was at the bus stop again today and said "hey! remember me?! i asked you about gene wilder movies." I was like "hi! yup, i remember!" and that was the end of that. haha.
