Search is busted

Yesterday I discovered that the search function on Allegra’s blog is broken.  I did some research and I’ve tried a few possible fixes, but so far no solution.  If there are any WordPress experts out there, your assistance would be appreciated.

I am getting so sick of this

Taser news

You know what REALLY FREAKING CHOKES ME???  That commentators are saying “Oh better hit with a taser than a gun!”

When a cop pulls a gun, there are consequences.  When a cop pulls a taser, which has a small but non-zero chance of constituting ‘the final deadly force you will ever feel, chump!’ it seems there are no consequences at all.

You know what else singes me?  That the Taser company is SUING medical examiners who say that a taser contributed to the death of a citizen.  Give me a break!!!


Overdoing it just seems to be my style – 1.5 hours on a bike yesterday and my bum is providing me with much feedback this morning. The vaccination points don’t hurt, but my arms hurt from hauling groceries. I deked into Brentwood Mall, supposedly for beer and veggies and there was no spinach. This completely put my dinner plans into disarray (as Jeff can no doubt attest – I’m not even going to post what I ‘cooked’ for dinner last night but will say it was heavily augmented with rice pudding, ice cream and strawberries) and I was so discombobulated that I started wandering around the mall looking for somebody else to take my money, although I did pick up fresh fruit as part of my ongoing efforts to provide pleasing nourishment to myself and Jeff.
Cobb’s didn’t work out. Usually it’s a great place to spend money, but some jackass cut in front of me in the lineup. I went to the other bank I use and changed my address; I drifted upstairs and got robot socks and pink skull socks for a buck each (v. nice socks) along with a more nondescript pair of blue socks and three t-shirts all for less than $15; I went to Sears to see if my sore butt could find new pants and believe it or not, I emerged with cords and jeans which fit me for $50 (& you should have seen me sitting and squatting and doing truncated high kicks in the dressing room – it would have been a top ranked video on youtube I’m sure, either under the title Middle Aged Woman has Spazz Attack or Woman dislodging small mammal from pants). Then I bought beer. My carrying capacity at that point having been reached, I went to the bus and the driver scowled at me when I tried to pull out my bus pass when he was trying to pull out of the bus loop. “I KNOW you have a bus pass,” he said.

Then home and a couple of Deadwood episodes and early to bed. I am going to be finding a lot of reasons to stand up today.
