Good News & Bad

Well, besides the good news that my mom’s taking us to see Loretta Lynn later in the fall (if she does "Fist City," I’ll be in heaven — "But the man I love, when he picks up trash, he puts it in a garbage caaaaan"), my contact lenses finally came in.

In lesser news, we will not be at World Fantasy after all (unless, of course, a wealthy benefactor steps forward; anyone?) due to an unexpected and HUGE auto repair bill. This makes me very sad. (Come for Thanksgiving!)

I also got an email today about a distantly related stranger’s unfortunate accident, which I will quote from here because I’m a really bad person: He will be buried on his birthday, Friday, would have been nineteen. Tragic.  Lived in New Jersey.

So, see, it could be much, much worse than $900 for a fuel pump and some brake stuff.

    No fair!
    I bet she’ll do “Fist City.” She did it when I saw her this summer. She also did “The Pill,” which was awesome but also incongruous next to her comments about bringing prayer back into the schools. Still love her.

    BTW, the “No fair!” was in regards to you folks not coming up to WFC. Stupid car!

    I would like to say that I just today was faced with an unexpected auto repair bill (Pf $1150CAN, which is still a little less than what you paid I think, unless GWB has messed up your currency more than I think he has).
    What? Is Mercury in retrograde or something?

    I think Mercury RX was last month. I’m hoping that means that everything else will behave itself.
    And yes, very sad on the no Madison in fall. Very sad indeed.
