best box ever

i found a box full of old vintage vantage shirts that i'd ironed furry buffaloes onto a few years ago. it's like a bonanza. the buffalo is in a different spot for every shirt, so it's the fro on the dodgeball kid's head, it's like a tattoo on the compton cupcakes one, gravity, it's not just a good idea, it's the buffalo, caucasia knows how to party with a dead buffalo with its legs up, you get the idea.

spare prayers

my friends from high school, Lauren & Ralph Bove (bo-vay) and their son Matthew could use some positive healing thoughts & prayers right about now.

(from Matthew's CarePage): "A little after his first birthday, Matthew was diagnosed with Hepatoblastoma, a very rare form of liver cancer. Although they lived in New York, his parents, Lauren and Ralph, decided to bring him up to Boston where he split time between Children’s Hospital Boston and the Jimmy Fund Clinic at Dana Farber Cancer Institute starting in February of ’06 until he was finally discharged this past November. In that time, Matthew underwent six rounds of chemotherapy and had 65% of his liver removed in order to fully eradicate the tumor in his body."

unfortunately they just learned through blood tests that Matthew is not really cancer-free, they're not sure where the cancer is now or how to fight it, they're in a waiting game until it gets more developed and doctors can do something about it, OR until there is a healing miracle and their little boy is rid of the cancer for good.

so if you're feeling lucky or have some extra prayers to give, please include Matthew Bove on your list of good vibe recipients, i know they would really appreciate it.

licensed to drive

i went to the dmv bright & early this morning to get a NC drivers license, all prepared to take the 25 question written test but they still had me on file from 4 years ago so all i had to do was read the top line on the vision chart & identify 8 road signs by their color and shape & take a new photo and 20 minutes later i left with my new license. sometimes things just work out.
and i am all the wiser for knowing things like
"Secondary roads" are roads where... hills are more likley to be more steep and curves are likely to be more sharp than on primary roads.

Unless otherwise posted, the speed limit in cities and towns is... 35 miles per hour.

If a vehicle sways freely, leans heavily to one side during a turn or seems to bounce continuously, there may be a problem with the... suspension system.

faithless samaritan

i don't believe in god or everlasting love
she can't save you, you can't save me, no peace comes from up above
doomed from day one
to lie in dirt graves
all we have is all we make
& all we do all night & day
do good. do well. make it work.

on the road

people who flash their brights coming from the other direction to tell you a cop is waiting in the grass = awesome

people who drive the same cars as cops = assholes

We have company coming over
and I don't feel like cookng,
it's late and I'm a little hungry.
Friends drop by unannounced, no problem ORDER PIZZA!
A sleep over with a house full of kids,
The game is on and no time for sandwiches.
The Boy Scout Troop has about twenty-five kids,
no problem, ORDER PIZZA!
What can I take to the party?
How many pieces should I bring?
I need a dish for the potluck,
no problem ORDER PIZZA!
Vegetarian, Cheese or the Works, it doesn't matter
neither of these will hurt,
Thick crust, thin crust,
Deep dish or that hand tossed stuff on TV
It's a very convenient dish,
not just for you but also for me
No matter what the occasion,
there's always kids around,
and if not you have a midnight snack,
now who could argue with that? ORDER PIZZA!
It will get you out of a jam,
trust me I know,

another man's treasure

i have to estimate the value of my t-shirts for a moving company and i say 400 shirts x $50 each = $20,000.00

i think that's a conservative estimate, some are worth hundreds. nevermind the fact that somebody threw them away at one point. you should see the yellows.

HealthNet is the Devil

Anyone ever considering health insurance, DO NOT USE HEALTHNET.

They will charge you insanely high premiums.

They will not allow you to go to nice doctors that your friends recommend.

They will force you to go to a doctor in a dirty trailer in the ghetto, specializing in AIDS patients with outdated equipment and stains on the walls and ceiling.

They will refuse to pay that doctor because they inexplicably assigned you to a medical group 600 miles away.

They will put you on hold and transfer you around the company
for 47 minutes (including hanging up on you) before telling you they will not pay for the
"unauthorized charges."

I will pay for the goddamn doctor and lab fees or else my credit will take a hit.

HealthNet is terrible.

HealthNet is awful.

From Idiotic Customer Service to Third Rate Doctors to not paying for any services, it's been one nightmare after another for 5 years with them.

I wash my hands of HealthNet and jump happily and healthily into the loving arms of Blue Cross.
