Oh, before I forget...I tend to think anyone with any interest will already have one, but I might as well ask: anybody want a gmail account? (Even if you don't need another email account, it's good for the extra storage space.)

Anyway, I got back late last night from a trip back to my home town. I left on Friday and, gah, actually had a blow-out on the interstate on the way there. Which sucked. I tried to change the tire myself, but the bolts were on too freaking tight. I don't have a cell phone. I was just hoping a highway cop would drive by, but of course not. Not when I needed one. Finally I locked the car and started walking along the road, because I could see a farm maybe three miles back and I thought I would use their phone. Then, about halfway to my destination, a car pulled over. It was this family who'd been going the opposite direction, saw my car, and turned around & stopped to help me. The dad was able to help me get the tire changed and wouldn't accept anything in return for his help. My heart is just overflowing with love for how awesome people can be. The weekend was otherwise good; I hung out with my friend Jon Paul and spent Sunday with my mom and grandma.

And I know I had something I meant to write about, but it's gone now. Oh well. I should probably work on some writing, since I've been slacking a bit lately, but I have new Simpsons dvds and they need attention...
