  • 09:55 New day. Foot is less ‘agony’ and more ‘unpleasant’, so I can finally stand upright. Still, gotta limit my time spent on it to be safe. #
  • 09:57 I wish I could say it shocks me that a school district would sink this low. Sadly, it doesn’t. #
  • 13:03 Can’t decide if I like the original reverb-happy version of Pearl Jam’s “Ten” or the cleaned up re-release. One’s nostalgic, other’s strong. #
  • 14:36 Starting to feel a bit more normal. –wait, why is my sock turning red? Oh, come ON! Time for another bandage… #
  • 15:36 Sweet! MythBusters testing a Burn Notice myth (phone books as bulletproofing). It worked! Go figure. #
  • 16:21 I’m not seeing what TiVo Premiere does that my normal TiVo doesn’t. It already streams netflix and yahoo and web tv sucks. Why bother? #
  • 21:17 Okay. I’m now standing, walking, and doing my usual stuff. Not PLEASANTLY, but it’s an improvement over essentially being mezzed. #
  • 23:48 Yet More School Fail. If we don’t tell kids sex exists, there’s no way they’d ever find out and make mistakes, right? #

Totally not surprised about the phone book thing. Lotta tensile strength in those pages!
They make a good safe target for shooting practice since there’s no chance of ricochet. (Of course you have to put them ON and AGAINST something that’s equally safe, in case you miss…and of course you should be in a nice safe firing range and/or a earth-walled winecellar like I was…)

One thing worth note is they only work against handguns. Rifles and shotguns with deer slugs, not as much. But in the episode, all the gang-bangers had when they shot at the car was handguns, so that’s fine.

Ignoring, repressing, and pretending that strong emotional/physical/social/biological drives don’t exist always works so well.

If they’d just get over their freaking guilt, everyone would be just fine.
