Debtor Hall of Fame
We have a new all time greatest debtor excuse.

"I'm in a coma. People in comas don't pay their bills. I've been sent home to die because of my coma so I'm not going to pay anything, I'm just going to die from my coma."

I don't think I've ever actually been speechless at work. I've told debtors I was speechless as a negotiating technique but I I don't recall ever being without anything to say (that is to say anything that wouldn't get me fired). I Just said OK, and ended the call. Jaunita pointed out that people in coma's don't usually speak as well as she did.

You always want to see them one last time
Beki, my first love really, was studying to be a commercial pilot when I met her and running flight training at CWU. We came together through a series of random events that I memorialized here at some length. Thought we went our separate ways, we spoke every few months from that day forward, even after she went off and got married. Hell I even showed up at her bachelorette party. Last summer, in fact, she called to let me know she was moving back to Washington and we made plans to get together around the first of the year when she was expected to be back. I hadn't heard from her so I went to look her up on facebook. I could have just called her, but I thought this would be a less direct "Hey remember me" as unnecessary as that is. I couldn't find her, which struck me as odd because I remember she had a facebook before everyone had a facebook. I attributed this to her being married and my not knowing her married name. Tried to find her brother, no such luck. So I put my skiptracing experience to work and found this.

Every time I heard of a plane incident I always thought of her and hoped she was ok and listened intently to the reports for a Washington connection. Of course I knew the odds were so small but I listened any way. This time I simply didn't think much of it when NPR said there was a local connection. I was too busy and didn't listen to the entire report. Besides, I already knew about the crash, what more is there?

Clearly there was a lot more.....

There is that....
Does anyone else remember when the interwebs was chock full of stuff to do? And when you couldn't wait to show all of your friends but you had to wait until you were at school because it was the only place with a connection faster than 56k? I miss those days. The only thing I can think of recently is HULU and Netflix.

Olympic Madness
Michael Phelps should have a Barry Bonds asterisk next to his name in the record books. Not because he's juicing, but because he's not on the level of Mark Spitz. Phelps doesn't have a strand of body hair, wears two caps and has a full body laser sculpted wet suit. Spitz had a speedo, the seventies head of hair and the giant seventies 'stache slowing him down. So, that being said:

Phelps, Michael - 2008 8 time Olympic Gold Medalist*



* - 'stacheless

My gangsta cred
Last night I was at a poker game in Auburn down off A street, well within the borders of "da hood." Anyway, while folding a 9 deuce offsuit, a mere four doors down, a gun fight broke out. The boys in blue where there within seconds, and sometime later more gun fire, not sure how that was. And I was standing there, as though it were no big deal. So...I guess the moral of the story is to not live in the hood. Come to think of it, probably best not be sitting in a garage with a bunch of middle age men hold a wad of cash in the hood either.


Damn, I coulda been killed.
