Thoughts from here

Thought 1) I'm going in late to USAR drill this weekend. Getting home at near 1 in the morning, not being able to get into bed until after that, and the be expected to be up at around four to get ready and be there on time is not good for me. I'll take my health and sanity (Like I did on Monday.) over money.

... Besdies, I didn't get my usual before drill haircut this week too. So I have to stop and get that before going in. :P

Thought 2) I didn't think it was going to happen, consider how much money it brings in a day compared to most of the other stations, but it did.

They sold the station where I work at. (Good old Gas City #301 in Alsip.) At a rumored near $4 mil.

No, this doesn't mean RJ's out of a job. No, there's transferring me out to another store. It seems that the Distric Mamanger and the Area Suporviser wants to keep some of the people who worked at #301. Some being 4 out of the 11 there. And I'm one of the lucky four. :P

But I'm going back out to #45, at the crossroads of bumfuck and nowhere, er, LaGrange and Laraway in Frankfort. Joy. (/Sarcasim)

Thought 3) Comiskey Park is now US Cellular Field, and will be for the next 23 years. The next Sox game I'll attend will probably be in 2027. :P

Thought 4) As I typed this, braking news came in. The space shuttle Colombia disintegrated during it's decent. It'll be the only other shuttle disaster besides the Challenger explosion in 1985.

Good morning to you too.

Here's something to think about.

My father's not the smartest man in the world, but he did hit on something with the shuttle tragedy. (Though he was joking around at the time.)

You do realize that someone from the TX/LA/AR debris area, will (sooner or later) put a piece (or pieces) of the shuttle up for selling on eBay.

A lot of people will say "No, they won't.", but there's been worse stuff for sale on the internet before.
