    my father's car was hit by some guy that blew a red light. A bit of damage to the car, annoying, but whatever. And then comes the realization that the other driver is in the country illegally and has no license nor insurance.

    :fu:

    So sorry to hear that, Douglas.

    I only have something trivial to report today: when I meet new people, I often forget their names right away. Why is that? It is not because I have a bad memory. It is because I am focusing all my attention on the handshake. I shake hands gently (because I am not a barbarian), but I know that other people grip is tightly as they possibly can (because they are barbarians). And so in the act of shaking hands, I focus my attention on not getting my hand crushed, thereby missing the person's name. Thank goodness for the Internet, where I can look up their names.

    traveling for work in NJ right now, but I have no idea where. It's an old ass car that he used for traveling and he wanted to replace in like 6-7 months anyways. Not sure if those plans have been moved up or what.

    I had a much shorter one, but it consisted of getting jerked around on stuff that is not difficult to answer and should have been done by last week. People suck.

    I almost never remember a person's name when I first meet them, especially during introductions. I hate the chore of perfunctory introductions ('Hi Joe, this is my friend Sally. Sally, this is Joe.' 'Nice to meet you.' 'Nice to meet you too.') so I tend to just remember the names of people I talk to or plan on talking to. Of course this becomes a problem when my expectations and plans fail and I need to address someone and can't just yell out 'Hey you!'

    My search for new shoes continues to be unfruitful. Picked up a pair of AE Larchmonts for a song, in my usual AE size. But I need to go down half-a-size on this last, and of course they are sold out of that size. Sigh.

    Hopefully your dad had UIM insurance. Nobody should be driving without it.
