A Tale From My Childhood---OUCH!!!

One evening when I was 8 or 9, my Dad had to go out on a job, and my Mom went with him. That left my sister Lori in charge of me. She was doing her homework in her room, and I was in the livingroom watching TV. Sometime later, I fell asleep on the couch. I woke up hungry and went into her room to ask her to fix me something. I didn't get too far as----BONK!!! something hit me on the head! I dunno how she did it, but Lori had balanced a very large stereo speaker on top of her door, and the result was a trip to the ER and 30 stiches to close up a nasty looking gash on the top of my head, and I had the mother of all headaches! To this day, I still have a bump on my head where the stitches were, and it feels funny to touch. OUCH!!!

Ya know, it really pisses me off that while my Mom has to struggle with the use of 1 hand, the lady that caused her accident got off without even a slap on the wrist! It was her greed that caused my Mom to get hurt. Because of American Woodmark's desire to put profits ahead of people's safety, all safety rules were thrown down the toilet. Her boss said that it would be Ok to make an adjustment on her machine involving moving parts WHILE the thing was still moving. Mom had to to what the boss said, and the rest, as they say, is history. So because of that, my Mom will never have the use of her hand again, while that bitch Hellen Thompson gets off scott free, and can enjoy a normal life. Sheer lunacy!

Even though I've lived in West Va. for 12 years, I don't consider it my home, just a temporary relocation. I miss Fairfax, VA soooo much. I was born, raised, and spent the first 21 years of my life there. The one biggest thing I miss is the library. I used to go there all the time and get armloads of books. You can't find the kind of books I like at the Moorefield library. In fact, the last time I went there, all the books I looked at were older then I was:P Also, to get a good book, ya gotta shlep all the way to Cumberland, MD, because the mall there has the closest book store. And since my favorite hobby shop around here closed a couple weeks ago, I have to go down to Winchester to bye models. The newspapers here really stink! Gimme a good Washington Post or USA Today anytime! Beleive me, Moorefield does have a few good qualities to it. The people here are nice, and my church is great. Mom says she thinks God lead us here so that I could start going to church. But on the other hand, I am just not a country person! I don't like constant silence. Down home, we lived next to a highway. If I ever get married and save up a few bucks, I will move back there!


IWell, things are gettin really sucky around here! Now not only do I have to help my Mom out, but now since My aunt fell and broke both of her feet, Im really busy. Get this, get that, It never ends! Don't get me wrong, I'm a helpful person, but man, I barely have enough time for myself anymore! My personal to do list is really getting backed up. Anyway, that's life for ya!


The one thing that I really hate in my chat experience is being PMd by Indian/Pakastani ministers and "poor" Africans. They usually work in the same fashion. First they'll ask for your ASL, I always tell em to check my profile for all my vital information. Next, they'll ask if you're a Christian and what kinda church you go to. Next, they'll say that they need money to run their ministry, that they're orphans, they need someone to invite them to the US, or some other Bullshit. That's when I ignore them! Tell me, if they're so poor, HOW THE HELL CAN THEY AFFORD TO BE ONLINE? GRRRRRRRR

Internet Dating

So, what's your opinion on internet dating? I know most of you older types don't think it's a good idea, because you think, "How can you date someone that lives miles away, and that you have never seen in person before?" My opinion is , if done properly, internet dating can be successful. Two of my closest friends, Cathy and Royce, met online, and they currently have a very strong relationship, and I know a few others. Just one warning: Make sure the person you're interested in is legit, or you may be in trouble!

My Family

I havn't said too much about my family besides my Mom. I am the youngest of 3 kids. I have 2 older sisters. Julie who is 44 is the oldest, and Lori who is 40 is the next. Then there's me. My Parents have been married 41 years. They are natives of West Virginia, which is why I live here now. My sisters and I were born and raised in Fairfax, VA. Mom, as you know, is at home because of her hand. Dad is semi-retired and works just 3 days a week. We moved back here to West VA. in 1992, and I'm still kind of in culture shock! All in all, we're just a regualar family.

I have finally made peace with 2 close friends of mine with whom ive had a strained relationship for the past year and a half or so. I won't name any names to protect them. They are a couple. I fell in love with the female half of the couple, but the feeling wasn't mutual. She started seeing this other guy, who later became a friend of mine as well. I became jealous, and became a general Asshole towards them. Well, after admitting defeat and pleanty of apologies on my part, they have started talking to me again. I'm gonna do whatever it takes to regain their total trust, because I value their friendship so much, and it would be a shame to see that friendship die because of a misunderstanding.
