Good news: Gary Condit was defeated in his reelection bid. Good. One less scumbag in Congress.
Bad news: My car is leaking oil again, after paying my slowpoke mechanic Paul a zillion dollars to fix it. I took it in with a few drops leaking, now I am seeing 10" blobs on my driveway.
More bad news: Yesterday I got a catnip splinter in my finger and now it's infected. It's right where my index finger bends and I am not sure if I got it out. Wahhh.
Even more: My dryer only blows cold air so I have someone coming out today to fix it.
Bad things come in threes, right?
I am counting the splinter, in that case.
