Rough night ...

Ack ... had a nice productive evening PLANNED, with scheduled RSI phone calls, etc. etc. etc., then I get Daughter #1 screaming for me at my office door telling me that Daughter #2 had bashed her head on the headboard in the master bedroom. I still don't know how it happened ... The Wife was back there with her but was doing something else when she heard a loud "wham" and #2 was suddenly screaming and covered in blood. It turns out she busted open her face just above the eyebrow ... had a 2" gaping cut there ... sort of like the ones boxers get. The Wife was all "oh, it will be OK", but Daughter #1 still has a 1/2" scar on her cheek from an encounter with a coffee table when she was 2, and I didn' t want #2 getting a (much larger) scar like that from this. We got our shit together and hopped in a cab for Children's Memorial Hospital. A couple of hours of chaos later (there is only so much you can do to placate a 16-month-old with a bad owee in a hospital emergency ward) we got back, Daughter #2 having gotten six or seven stitches to close up the wound. Not a fun evening.

A message from da grate city of Chicaga ...

Hey, all ... what Chicagoan could pass up the chance to stuff a ballot box? C'mon ... in the spirit of all those dead people in our cemetaries who gave JFK the Presidency ... it's time to head to the polls for Live Journal ... the write-in campaign is focusing on the personal site, services, and community section of the Webbies (which sounds like footwear for ducks, but nobody asked MY opinion) ... go here http://www.livejournal.com/talkread.bml?itemid=5520618 and Alderman Insomnia will tell you all the details.

Now, get going ... remember Chicago's motto "Where's Mine?" "Vote Early And Vote Often!" ... don't make us have to hit your garage with a garbage truck.

(sigh)

Not to be whiney or anything ... but it does bum me out when this sort of thing happens. I've been trying, over the past week or so, to maybe push some traffic into my RSI site with the idea of getting some folks whom I actually know signed up for the free Health newsletter. I've been tagging this on posts here, in U.T.B.,various place on AOL, etc.. You want to know how many people that I actually "know" have done so? ONE (thanks, Elizabeth!) ... plus one other whose e-mail addy I don't recognize (who could have come from anywhere). Yep, just ONE person was willing to humor me in this. Tells me a lot about my place in THIS universe. A whole lot.
