the mark

One slight crunch

As if everything else but my blood sugar wasn't sucking badly enough, I let myself get distracted for one fscking second last night and now I'm in the market for a new right front fender, since the Chevy Yukon in front of me stopped partway through its turn. Nobody hurt, thank goodness, and I suppose with a fresh student loan on the way the kilobuck deductible won't burn too badly...but I could have used that money for something else. To say nothing of the increased insurance premiums I'll be paying for the next three years, since this is unarguably All My Fault.

Actually, the hotel meeting last night went well enough. There was good news, some not so good news, but on balance there was more good than bad, and we should be able to get a contract signed that will nail down the hotel for us through 2007. drunkenphlower and I stuck around afterward to talk finance and just get caught up with each other since we hadn't really had a chance to in weeks, thanks to her evil employers eating her life.

Today the long slog through the mortgage companies continues...one more database to update and a plethora of spreadsheets, ditto. It'll be a full day.

It's not just a white thing

Ebonics raises its ugly head again, and Cobb's not down with it.

DC Thornton observes, They Be Messin' Wit Our Kidz, Yo and has a bunch of links to other folks of all ethnicities who think this is a stupid idea. As for me, I think Mary Texeira needs to STFU and quit embarrassing the rest of us Spanish-speakers. We have enough problems with the black folks already without her help, yo.
