Being naughty

Someone posted a chain letter asking for money on an Internet message board that I administer. The message included both an e-mail address and a postal address. I deleted the message of course, but not before doing a google search for "mail me more information" and picking out 20 or so things that Miss. Cuevas of Oceanside, CA is now interested in. I threw in a few others that didn't show up in the Google search for good measure -- for example, the Jehovah's Witnesses now know that she would like to be contacted, and that the best time is 6:00 AM on Saturdays. The Scientologists and the Realian movement are also going to be in touch.

If only I had this sort of devotion to stuff I should be doing right now.

Slippery when wet

This morning I slipped when getting out of the shower. As I fell to the floor, I had visions of dashing my brains out on the commode and being discovered by the neighbors months from now . Luckily that didn't happen. But I did slam my shoulder quite vigorously against the tile doorway, and slammed the back of my head hard enough on a windowsill to loosen it from the wall.

After laying on the floor and contemplating the ceiling for a minute or two, I staggered to my feet and noticed a throbbing pain whenever I moved my arm. My shoulder was definitely not a happy camper. In comparison, the head thing was virtually unnoticable.

As the day has gone on, however, the shoulder pain has mostly dissipated. But the dull ache in my head has been getting worse. ugh. Hopefully a good night's sleep will make it all better.

An update

So here's the story about the Indian guy... An organization that I'm a member of is having a big convention in Nashville. They are giving a leadership award to this guy who has helped the organization grow in India. They are paying for his plane ticket, but apparently cheaped out on providing a hotel room. So I got an e-mail from someone in DC asking if I (or another local) could provide a place to stay. I figured it couldn't hurt to know someone in India, so I volunteered.

In other news, I've been staying busy with schoolwork, planning a high school reunion, and various other things. Oh, and reading about Mexico whenever I have a free moment. Looking forward to the trip, even if I haven't convinced anyone else to go with me...
