The car thread just made me think of the Christine-mobile my parents once purchased. It was a late 80's or early 90's Plymouth Acclaim. The first year that vehicle was made. They had it for a few years and on the very same day they mailed off the last payment, it started falling apart. The door handle and window cranks fell off, and the speedometer & tachometer started running backwards. My dad had that fixed and a few weeks later he came home for lunch, parked it in the drive, and 15-20 min later was startled by someone beating on the door. He opened it to find the fire department. The car had suddenly burst into flames. WTF? Needless to say that was the only Plymouth they purchased.

Of course!!!! The day that I don't even TRY to make my hair look nice, it looks awesome.

And in about 40 minutes, it's going to be shoved under a hat, and into a bun. *sob*

Don't worry about it. It happens. Bosses have bad days (and sometimes hate their jobs) too.



Ah, the twitter-verse. I avoid it.



I wish my mom would hurry. I am ready to take her home from the mechanics, go to my house, and go to bed.

Not now. I can't deal right now.

(((Hugs))) Many of mine think the same about me. I get messages every other day from them, asking me to come back to Facebook. I have avoided it since my dad died, and some others things happened. Truth be told, I don't want to. I will when I want to. If you want to talk to me, call me or text me or something. I don't need to post on FB to prove I am okay. That's not a very accurate gauge of ones well being.

Slightly different scary topic

The building of Atomic Bombs, also known as the Manhattan Project, took place not too far from my area in 1942. Oak Ridge TN. People found eviction notices on their door asking them to be out of their town in 2-6 weeks, many were forced out without compensation, the area was acquired, and the factory was built. My Grandmother worked there, like many other women. Waste was dumped into creeks, and it was rumored that barrels of waste were hauled into my state & county, and other counties in the area, and buried. People would see the loaded trucks come in, and they would leave empty. I do not doubt it, and I have plenty of strange reasons not to.

Okay, I think I have decided. We just need to get out of here. It doesn't matter where we end up. It will be better than here. Someone will eventually want this place.

Speak of... I really want to read this book. My Grandmother died before I was born, of lung cancer, and I never got to speak to her about her experiences at Oak Ridge.

In other news, my sleep is screwed. I've had too much caffeine.

Points off for Maricel Presilla for the empanada chapter. You go through about a dozen or so empanadas, make brief mention of yuca used as dough, then proceed to include recipes for various Argentine and Chilean ones, but can't include one Dominican empanada in there?
Though I suppose better for me because when I finally sell them some day nobody will know how to make them!

This kind of stuff interests me and freaks me out at the same time.

Like I know we don't hear about it much, but I wonder how the radiation levels are at the plant in Japan that was destroyed with the tsunami.

I know they had people volunteer to clean up knowing that they'd probably die doing it. And the idea of that being so close to residents is super terrifying.

Idk if it weren't dangerous, I'd love to go to the Chernobyl site.

There's a horror movie called Chernobyl. Super creepy.

I would not want to go there.

That link had a YouTube video linked to it. That was pretty disturbing.
