What a hectic weekend. Sunday I told Brian to take the car so I could check the oil in the van and then maybe do a little shopping. He did take the car, but he also took the van key with him. Luckily for me, Adam is sweet and fluffy as a puppy and dropped the key off for me. UNluckily for me, the van stalled out on a very busy street leaving the mall. I had no cell phone, no one to call, and no one to help me get the fucker back into the parking lot. Right when I was beginning to break down in tears a very nice, slightly creepy older guy helped me get the van into the parking lot and offered me a ride, to which I replied "No thanks, I'll call a cab". I then saw he had his 11-ish year old son with him in the car and went anyway, figuring it served me right if I got hatchet murdered. I didn't think the guy would do any grisly crimes with his kid in the car (since watching Dexter I may change my mind) but I had my keys in the weapon position, just in case. The guy turned out to be a true good samaritan, so thankfully I'm still alive. Of course that isn't making the van any less FUBAR. Also went to see The Prestige with Adam on Sunday, if you haven't seen this movie...SEE IT!!! And then say "what the EFF?". Christian Bale is Not un-yummy in this movie, and who can resist a cameo of David Bowie as Nikola Tesla? I was so fascinated with the Tesla-Edison rivalry side story that I've decided to read up on Tesla, as soon as I'm finished with The Historian.

I also found out that my aunt, one of my favorite people in the whole world, has agressive breast cancer. They are going to start her on Chemotherapy immediately and once they have the tumor shrunk down they'll do a mastectomy. My dad is with her now, but I wish I could be too.

Here are a few of the things I love about Minnesota:



A view from just outside my apartment.



Another one. This was taken right at sunset, and the picutre does not do justice to the fall colors.



The Twins. My whole life I always secretly wanted younger sisters.



These guys were just hanging out on my patio. I started giving them snacks and they would peck at each other or chase each other around for them. It was totally cute.

And speaking of totally cute...

i am glad to hear you are still alive. if it's any consolation, my friend just told me the story of when some guy came up to her car window once, with a gun in his right hand and his cock in the other.

true story! gross! not to mention fucking creepy.

Thanks, Honey! I love you, too! Don't worry too much about the van today; we'll sort it out.

And yeah, Kimby, that is creepy. Did he even try to alleviate the tension with a witticism? Maybe, "Heeeeere's Johnny!" (not that funny, I know, but it's kinda hard to come up with situational comedy)

Anyway, ducks for teh win.

I can't wait to come visit you next summer! We're going to have so much fun! :)

I would have been super stressed and good that the man wasn't an axe murderer but you did the right thing. Better safe than dead.

BTW, I had my first official sex dream with Wesley. HAWT!
