Rainier is Trying to Kill Me

I often seek out new experiences to add to the richness of my life. Last night, I’m utterly thrilled to say, I experienced my first ambulance ride. At first, I tried to muscle through a bastardly case of food poisoning, but when consciousness threatened desertion, I gave in. “Biiii. Buhhh! Brriii,” I called from my throne of despair.

Bits of me

I was going through an old password list, and found some pieces of my web self. Some of these may require registration for you to see my profile. Not long ago, this list would have included a Geocities page. C’mon, you had one too, admit it. The one constant has always been frykitty.com. I’ve been blogging here, frequently or not,… (more…)
