Hey everyone...I dropped off the boards for most of the summer because I've just been really busy...life's been hectic. I'm working what are essentially two full-time jobs...lawyering and journalism...plus I DJ on the weekends, plus I organized my class reunion, plus I'm dating someone who lives 30 miles away...so that's a drive.
And the summer was rife with injuries, etc. - torn rotator cuff on my right shoulder, fell and scraped up/bruised my arms, bloodied my nose and hit my head, had a clogged ear due to sinus infection...all kinds of fun, basically.
I think at age 39, I should learn not to skateboard anymore. Recovery time is not as quick as it used to be.
Nearly got mugged two weekends ago in Terre Haute. Two guys and a girl, rough neighborhood, 3:25 a.m., stopped for gas. The girl came up asking for money and started hitting me in the side of the head. Then the blonde guy started throwing elbows at the side of my head, while the brunette guy tried to grab my shoulders and pin me. I swung on them, and would up bloodying the blonde guy's lip and blackening the brunette guy's eye. They ran when some friends of mine came out of a nearby bar, and the cops have apparently learned who these guys were.
Otherwise, the summer's been good.
I still owe Slip and a few others some Megomuseum cards, and am trying to sort out who gets what. How has everybody else been?
