1. The scariest couple weeks of my career are over and resolved. I've "knocked on wood" so much, my knuckles are bloody. I'm emotionally and physically exhausted.
  2. I walked to a nearby diner for some coffee while I waited for my car. I overheard this group of truckers chatting about going to a girl's funeral later on that day.
  3. Coffee at a dealership is hit or miss. Mainly, "miss".
  4. Hunting magazines are nice to read because I'm a sucker for accessories, and there is a surprising amount of accessories involved with hunting. However, I hate killing things, so accessories are moot.
  5. It's 75 degrees outside, and while I appreciate the sun, I feel sad about the environment.
  6. I think about the polar bears that have nowhere to sit because the ice caps are melting, and I get really sad.
  7. My dog is growing again, and I feel bad for him because he's hurting and doesn't know why and I can't explain to him why.
  8. I prefer accuracy over speed and power...pretty much with anything.
  9. Not to sound like a cad, but to quote Hercule Poirot, I have: "an eye for the figure of a receding woman." Especially when they're wearing heels.
  10. I will have played guitar for 24 years this Thursday, and I still don't know how to play 80% of the music that I own.
  11. I love science, but not math.
  12. I think that if I got an arm-sleeve tattoo, I would get a Japanese-style sleeve of a beehive with honeybees.
  13. My parents have been dead for 46% of my life, and I worry more about how my friends and family will handle their own parents' deaths than how I feel about Ruth and Mike being gone.
  14. Two of my friends have died within my lifetime. One from suicide, one from disease.
  15. The sun is beautiful, and the blue sky makes me want to skip going to the office and drive somewhere, anywhere.
  16. I'm going to see my best friend of 20 years in a few days, and I'm trying to reconnect with myself after these past couple of weeks to feel normal around him again.
  17. If I were to hit "pause" with my life, and be able to go back to school, I would have been a doctor.
  18. I love the law, but it has been particularly stressful of late. I feel old and beaten right now.
  19. Dogs make me smile. I know. It sounds dumb, but it's true.
