My sister has had the privelage of doing it twice (in two weeks). But for me, yesterday was my very first time. While pulling the Cavalier up to the curb by my house, I hit a sharp edge on the sewer drain and busted my front tire. So I'm out fifty bucks and have to be the butt of my dad's jokes for a few days.

By the way, this blog is in the process of being reinvented. It's just slow going. I mean, really s-l-o-w. That's because I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it, but it's time to do something. I've been neglecting it a little too much, and in all honesty I miss the glory days of compulsively redesigning and posting inflammatory political diatribes.

And speaking of reinvention, I'm really excited that my longtime hostee and friend, Raddy, has her blog up and running again.


Drina-diva, sorry to hear about your tire.

As for moi, I finally figured out that I could move a more comfortable chair in front of the PC. Y'see, the staph sore I mentioned on the football thread is located on my left buttock In this chair, I can scrunch myself into a semi-reclining sort of position.

I called my medicine Septra, but I actually think this is a generic version of the same thing: sulfamethoxazole with trimethoprim. Sulfamethoxazole is a PABA antagonist, trimethoprim a dihydrofolate reductase antagonist. Both jam the little buggers' tetrahydrofolate synthesis pathways at different points, without which they can't reproduce--since they can't steal folate from their host, they must make their own folate and THF--and with their breeding jammed, the immune system cells overtake them AND KILL THEM GOOD AND DEAD MUHUWAH HA HA HA HA HA!
(Wikipedia strikes again! )

Maybe your dad could have that edge blunted smooth or something, or is this his chief source of amusement?

sulfa drugs are the spawn of satan. (i'm just a LITTLE allergic to them.)

as for the tire, i don't have enough fingers to count the number of tires we've replaced in the last year due to these bleeping gravel roads and idiots who shred theirs and don't move the shredded part out of the roadway.
