Lately it seems I've bought a season pass to a theme park filled with emotional roller coasters.

Last August one of my good friends from high school was involved in a bad boating accident. Shelly was a deckhand on a whale watching ship in Alaska. One awful day she was given the task of tying up the boat to the dock and she fell between the boat and the pier and her pelvis was crushed. Alaska is not the most convenient place to be when one is in need of medical attention. She was airlifted to Seattle and got the treatment she needed at the time, but in the last week a few issues came up and she decided to fly home to stay with her parent's and see a few specialists here.

I talked with her tonight and she mentioned how her older sister wants to introduce me to a few of her fellow gay friends.

Good and bad, bad and good. Eventually good will win out, and the weather in Chicago will get warmer. I just hope it happens sooner rather than later.
