Hit fewer balls more productively. Go through your complete routine each time. Stand behind the ball, aim at something, line up, waggle/or what ever you do and hit the ball, watch it all the way to the target, think about the shot, repeat. You won't get as tired but you'll get more value from your practice.

Ruptured it in epic fashion. Two or three times as a kid, then twice in rapid succession in high school in a highly traumatic manner, resulting in a loss of 55-60% of the membrane. Spent six months getting it cauterized to stimulate growth once a week, and now I have extremely limited hearing on that side, still about 25% missing and most of the rest is scar tissue. Despite the gaping hole letting water IN somehow it never drains OUT properly, and I'm consigned to a few days of feeling like someone jammed a used tampon through my ear into my eustacian tube.

the rich gossipy set here are all talking about this lady who scammed her way through their circles and suckered a lot of them in a ponzi scheme... apparently she used her connections as an art gallery manager to befriend the rich and bored set. she sold birkin bags on the side to the gullible since she gets to go to europe often, for a considerable profit... and later on "invited" the gullible ones to invest on her birkin-selling business, later on to find out that there was no birkin sold, and she just kept on inviting people to put money. so now the jig is up, and she's gonna be charged.

well I just found out the woman in that story is the wife of a friend. fuck.

Living in Severe T-Storm Alley! Why Greenville, SC and surrounding areas get more severe t-storms than Columbia or Charleston? BTW, I wish I was in Los Angeles in this time of the year.

Another Dire Warning that Severe T-Storms will impact 4th of July in most of the Eastern USA (including NYC). I felt like the Mayans get their way and put a curse on Mother Nature (sorry no offense and I'm sorry I said the word 'curse').

I demand a more thorough apology for your slur against Mother Nature and the Mayans.

I came back from the third world to three days of no power. The freak T-storms of last Friday knocked out power through much of Baltimore, and from what I'm told by my new neighbors, several houses on one side of our block are on a tiny little grid that is often amongst the very last to get power back. Gallingly, apparently the other side of the street often gets power back a few days before we do; it is not uncommon to see power cords stretched across the street in that circumstance. I'm told to expect at least another few days without it.

It's also 100 fucking degrees out every day. I was almost totally unable to sleep Friday and Saturday nights.

One of the only bright spots of not having been able to sell our old house for 6 months is that at least there is power there, so we packed up a few bags and the dogs and headed over there yesterday. We set the dogs in the back yard, unloaded the cars, and then let the dogs in. They were outside for about 15 minutes - if I really think about it hard it's possible the time got away from us slightly but it was 20 minutes on the absolute outside.

Well, one of the dogs came back in with a really elevated breathing rate and really raspy, awful, croupy sounding breaths. Fortunately, the old house is just a few blocks from an emergency hospital. By the time I got Bruiser in there he had puked in the car and was really crashing. I ran inside. Thank god the people there were extremely responsive - I'd handed the dog off to someone who rushed him back within seconds of walking in. He had heat stroke; internal temp up to 106. They say I wasn't a minute too soon - 107 is where serious cell failure begins, apparently. The question is if he was up to that before we got him in....

...Anyways, poor little guy seems to be making a solid recovery from what we're told and can be discharged later today, but we have to keep an eye on things.

Didn't come cheap, either.

Anyways, so my power is still fucking out, I'm camping at my old house where there's no TV or any of our stuff, but at least there's AC, my dog almost died, and I've just walked back into the office after 2 weeks on the road to a whole slew of messes. Shit.

I apologize. But I'm tired of hearing the so-called 12/21/2012 End of the World scare. I've survived Y2K in 2000, and last year I survived both of Harold Camping's end times tactics.

I didn't get that job w/the governor that I applied for (as I kind of expected), but my contact in that office said I was in the top 3 candidates out of over 20. They should have more positions opening shortly and she said I am "well positioned" for those. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Doug and Acid, sorry to hear about things. Glad you got the dog to the vet in time, Douglas.

I'm pissed off because my dying brother is having it rough these days. His cancer has stopped responding to the current treatment so it is reasserting itself. He is headed back to the US for a round of tests and treatment consults. It sucks that the much vaunted Canadian healthcare system has written him off and he has to head to the US for medical advice and treatment. I also cannot chip in much due to the new house so I'm feeling a little guilty but we had no way of knowing three months ago the timing was going to be like this.

Also, his one kid has always been a bad seed...marginal personality type person. This kid has picked now to go batshit crazy and get locked up. So my bro has a kid in the looney bin and the fallout is he now also has an eight year old living with him and his wife as the kid is a single parent. A very fucked up situation for a dying guy to be in.

Piob, I'm sorry as hell to hear that. I hope things get sorted out soon.
