    Fun Fact: My Mom wanted to name me Patrick since I was born n Saint Patrick's Day, but she felt sorry for my grandpa since I was the 5th grandson and no one had named any of their kids after him. So I was granted the middle name of "Elmer", which is almost as cool as "Winslow."



    I had a few drinks with her a couple of weeks ago in midtown. She is still awesome.



    Have fun.

    As for me, I think I will skip the next two.
    Elmer is my Dad's middle name. He's a junior, so I guess it had to be.
    It's wanting to know that makes us matter. Otherwise we're going out the way we came in. That's why you can't believe in the afterlife. Believe in the after, by all means, but not the life. Believe in God, the soul, the spirit, the infinite, believe in angels if you like, but not in the great celestial get-together for an exchange of views. If the answers are in the back of the book I can wait, but what a drag. Better to struggle on knowing that failure is final. - Hannah, Arcadia

    There's a not even remotely amusing irony in having a raging alcoholic who regularly causes huge embarrassing scenes pissed at you and sending you nasty emails because you got drunk and sleepy at a Christmas party.

    I actually like it. Another fun fact: Elmer was one of the most popular names in America until about 1920.

    Dude, Elmer Crater's an awesome name! Of course, since you're not an Old West prospector it's probably for the best that it's your middle name.

    Heh ... Elmer Crater was a pretty good guy. He had his demons, like all of us, but did his best to provide for his family through some nasty times (Great Depression).

    I think I am going to sign off. Don let the assholes get you down, Donald.

    (and yes, I have had four beers tonight ... I have a "happy buzz.")

    That's what makes the situation so tough though, the person in question isn't an asshole, she just has serious issues and while she's been known to occasionally acknowledge them and isn't completely lacking in self-awareness, she seems powerless to do anything about them. Shit, after I got over being angry I found myself wondering if she hadn't mistakenly sent me something she'd written about herself. I believe they call that projection.

However, with experimentation, and through trial and error, they developed another twill fabric that became known as denim, literally "de Nimes". Only at the end of the eighteenth century did jeans arrive in the United States.

    So, when I stepped outside earlier to take out the trash, a huge rat jumped out of one of the barrels and went scrambling inside though one of the basement windows. That's encouraging.
