Trials and Tribbleations

Got some comm traffic from the ex today. Regarding insurance. Funny how he’s only nice to me when he wants something from me. My dick, my weed, my food, my insurance. Ah, it feels so good to be used. Heh heh. Funny too how he thinks being nice to get something somehow negates all the bad blood between us… like I’ll suddenly forget the crap he gave me hours before.

Ah well, this isn’t news to me. I lived it for a good long time. Nice only when he wants something, an ass all the other times. And some innate belief that I’m stupid or something and can’t tell the difference, or that I won’t remember the grievances in the face of a few batted eyelashes and nice words.

Some people’s children.

But what I’m mostly focused on today is the impending launch of the spaceshuttle discovery. Just a few more hours now. Then a 12 day wait to make sure it lands safe and sound. Kinda nail-biting really. And the sad thing is, will we really know its safer? I mean, how many shuttle flights succeeded with foam debris raining down on the orbiters during ascent… only to result in a “safe” landing at the end of the trip? At least the shuttles have been improved to increase their safety. Its still experimental afterall.

So my step-mom is off to jail. For like 2 months basically. Then some 50 hours or so of community service and a five-year probation. All cause she got railroaded. I mean, she really is innocent, no solid evidience anywhere, just speculation based on what her ex-boyfriend did/said. But she got railroaded into making a plea bargain. I wish I were a lawyer. Just not sure I have the patience for it.

UPDATE: July 13, 2005 12:16 PDT

The space shuttle Discovery’s launch today has been scrubbed due to a glitch with one of the fuel tank sensors. Fortunantly there are still windows of opportunity this week as well as during the course of July. Hopefully we go during one of these, or else Discovery will be sitting around until September.
