So, I was loading up the last couple of things onto the truck for my trip to Maine, and I was feeling pretty good about things. No weird accidents or illnesses to prevent me from going camping for the first time in 11 years. And then...

As I was walking out the side door carrying the cooler with the soda and beer and other beverages in it, I stumbled. Not badly, just enough so I fell a bit to my left. My left arm hit the little hunk of sharp metal that passes for a door latch on modern storm doors. It hurt, but I not that badly, so I continued on and loaded the cooler into the back of the truck. Then I looked at my arm — ripped wide open, about an inch and a half long cut, and bleeding profusely.

Washed it off, put on a big ass bandage, and loaded the last couple of items on the truck, then headed off for the local urgent care facility... which doesn't open until eight (it was 6:30 when I got there). So I got some ice for the cooler, stopped at Allie's for donuts, and came home to wait for eight*.

* I thought about going to a hospital ER, but the two closest hospitals are each about a half hour away anyway, and the bleeding seems under control.

Sometimes it really sucks to be me.

Hot, muggy night. Didn't go for a ride because of threatened thunderstorms, but it turns out I could have. They've only just now gotten here.

The All-Star game is on. The opening ceremonies sucked; the thirty greatest moments in baseball done up in Olympic opening ceremony style. I'd even argue that the 2001 Seattle Mariners season has no business on the list because regardless of how many games they won, they didn't even get to the World Series. Bleah! You've got the best of all the all-star games; you don't need that crap. Introduce the players and play ball. Frelling game didn't even start until after nine. The baseball PTB are just incredibly stupid.

The other sad thing is that I haven't even heard of half of these players. I really need to pay more attention to the game, but now there's a strike looming, so who cares?

I'm also grumpy because some of the Buffistas are bemoaning the fact that they are unmarried and childless at 29 or 30. Jeez, gimme a break. Wait until you're unmarried and childless at 49. Chances are basically zero that I will ever have a child of my own, and given my track record with women, I will most likely die alone. That sucks.

Bitter now...
