I got a little snippy with the Mrs. this morning, because she said that she was disappointed in Prince because it has come out that he was supposed to begin treatment for his addiction to painkillers. She said she thought he was smarter than that. That kind of pissed me off; especially with her working in the medical field of all people. She off all people should know this is how addiction starts with most people; chronic pain or severe injuries. Also for many people, it starts with the meds, and spiral out of control until they've got a full blown heroin addiction.

He died after surgery last March, and his she died a couple of months later from cancer. Both of them were curve balls from hell. My aunt kept it a secret, so when I found out, in pure shock and anger, I yelled "WHAT THE FUCK NEXT!?!?"
One of my cousins is a minister, and did the eulogies at both services. She said something to the effect that we as a family had been through this 11 times in the past year and a half, and something just hit me.
I didn't cry at my grandfather's funeral because his death was so sudden, and I was still pretty numb, so when she said that, all of these emotions just hit me. It hit me again as I helped carry my aunt's casket to the hearse, because I was a pallbearer for my grandfather, and the same funeral home handled their services. To walk those same steps to probably the same hearse, en route to the same cemetery just months apart was pretty surreal.

And the good, yet equally disgusting thing is that the prosecutor that was complicit in the rug sweeping is facing up to 26 years in prison on multiple counts of engaging in prostitution, pandering, and four counts of willful neglect of duty. Payne can get his heaping helping of karma too.

Been overcast with off and on showers in Lansing all day, and we're looking at showers all night. Would have been nice to smoke a little herb and check them out. Oh well.

Wow! Growing up as an 80's baby (actually born in '79), you were in either in the Michael Jackson or Prince camp. I loved them both, and now they're both gone. Sad shit. A hell of a composer and musician, and even amongst the elite guitarists, he was viewed as one of the greats. Shocking news.

There's actually a Crip faction out there that wears Michigan gear. Main Street wears Michigan not for the blue, but because of the block M for Main. It's not so much a color thing anymore as much as it is a hat thing. Wearing the wrong team in the wrong area can have deadly consequences.

Things got a little rough last spring, and just when things were getting better, my grandfather died. That helped me grow ironically. Doing much better now. Thanks!

The song My Girl used to make me cry because grandfather used to sing it to my mom when she was little, and I thought that was coolest thing. He was an accomplished guitarist, and the only time in ever saw him play was when he played it for her out of the blue one day.
Right after I got word that he died, I rushed over to my mom's, and when I got there, she was sitting in front of the computer with a YouTube video of My Girl playing. I had to go sit in the car.

I have to confess that I developed an internet crush on Mabel after her encouraging words in the thread were I opened up about being suicidal. I have tons of respect for her and Magnus for that.

I saw a cartoon in the paper from when Ray Bolger died. It had Dorothy, the lion, and the tin man skipping over the rainbow towards Emerald City, with him running to catch up with them. I just Googled like a fool,and now I'm wet in the face.

Getting ready to head in. Work should be reaaally interesting tonight, seeing that most of my fellow workers are from rural areas or other cities, and our parts come from all over the Midwest and Canada. I see a makeup Saturday in our future; on top of the ones we are already scheduled for.

I've been getting it too, and I most certainly do NOT use the family desktop for "extra cirricular activities". That's what the tablet is for. I guess I'll just go ahead and nuke everything in the history (sorry kids) and see if that fixes it.

It really boggles the mind why with Flint, Saginaw, Detroit, Benton Harbor, and even Chicago in such proximity, that he doesn't recruit these talent hotbeds, let alone ones throughout the country.
