And the other tragedy is that my special ink pen died today. It's true that I have oodles of other pens to pick from, but my special purple ink pen had sentimental value that all those other pens can't even touch.
It was a 2nd street special, and the only one like it in OKC. Maybe this Christmas my Peanut will be someone with special powers who will be able to procure me a new special purple pen.
Speaking of special powers, updates to the radiation poll (blue box to the right) include a total of 79 votes to date. If you remember, the special power which wins will be the one I request from my endocrinologist prior to taking the radiation treatment next week. We have a total of 80 votes: in the lead are Flying (like Superman) with 24 votes, Jedi-like powers (like Yoda) with 20 votes, and Telepathy (like Professor X) with 18 votes. If you haven't voted yet, or if you want to vote again, you have less than a week to make those numbers change! Rock the vote already.
