OK. It's 2-something in the morning. Why is Tiger Woods leaving to drive somewhere?

Tiger hits a fire hydrant and tree, but air bags do not deploy. Why does his wife need to bash in the back window to pull him to safety?

Is it true he was backing out of his driveway? If so, again why does his wife need to bash in teh back window to pull him to safety? If he backed into the hydrant and tree, wouldn't the doors work? Or wouldn't the windshield be a better option if the doors don't work?

Tiger's wife has changed her story? Why?

The 911 phone call is placed from a neighbor's house, but the neighbor says he didn't make the phone call?

What the heck is going on here? This whole Tiger Woods thing seems to be getting curiouser and curiouser.

Really the only part of my dream I want to mention was that I flew. Not in a plane, not in a helicopter or anything. I literally flew.

I was trying to escape a bad situation and while I was flying I was having to fight some kind of spell being cast by my Uncle Jafar to bring back to the ground because if it worked I'd be stuck for life (or something like that.)

Uncle Jafar???????? Srsly brain! (;

But hey, I literally flew! I love literally flying. (:

All that said, I must investigate what the dream is trying to tell me...

Interesting article...

Activist seeks divorce ban in California

The sub-header even calls this a comedic movement and it indicates this movement is meant as satire so I don't know what about it is scaring me just a little. It is most definitely amusing me though too. (:

So a 30-something friend went to see New Moon. Apparently someone - tween I think - called her ma'am. She was bothered by that.

I tried to point out that "ma'am" is simply a term of respect, not any indication of how old the person thought she was. She and everyone else commenting on her annoyance seem to disagree with me. What say you?

Poll #1750 Is Ma'am really so bad?
Open to: Registered Users, detailed results viewable to: All, participants: 1


Is the term "ma'am" a term of respect or code for "old"?

I personally was taught to always use sir and ma'am. I thought that was standard practice. I don't know when it became a term you only used for "old" people. Though I do remember being a movie theatre working and calling someone, who wasn't much older than me, "ma'am" and having her ask me not to call her that because she was too young for that term. I wanted to say "since when does age matter" but I thought better of it.

I also remember jokingly protesting when a co-worker called me ma'am only to have her chew me out for protesting that she used a term of respect to me.

I'm feeling... out of sorts this evening.

That's actually not the right term to describe how I feel, but it's the closest I can think of.

I'm finding this whole scratched cornea thing to be really annoying. I am thankful it wasn't worse, but it's still very annoying. *sigh*

Waiting for Urgent Care that's within walking distance to open so I can hopefully get my eye checked.

Mildly hurts today (as opposed to last night's "just felt some discomfort") and it's watering a LOT.

*sigh*

ETA: Scratched cornea. Warm compress and antibiotic ointment for the next 7 days.

So I accidentally poked myself in the eye a few minutes ago. Now I'm wondering if I scratched the cornea. I keep feeling like there is something in that eye and I can't get it out. Though it's a little better now, I only get the feeling if I move my eye in one direction. *sigh*

ETA: Actually, it looks like I did something to the inside of the eyelid instead. *sigh*

I send my thoughts, prayers, and heartfelt thanks to those who server, those who have served, and those who died - all that I might have my freedom.

Thank you!

A friend sent me this. It just made me ROTFLMAO.

TO MAKE YOU SMILE . . . . ON JULY 20, 1969, AS COMMANDER OF THE APOLLO 11 LUNAR MODULE, NEIL ARMSTRONG WAS THE FIRST PERSON TO SET FOOT ON THE MOON.

HIS FIRST WORDS AFTER STEPPING ON THE MOON, 'THAT'S ONE SMALL STEP FOR MAN, ONE GIANT LEAP FOR MANKIND,' WERE TELEVISED TO EARTH AND HEARD BY MILLIONS.

BUT JUST BEFORE HE RE-ENTERED THE LANDER, HE MADE THE ENIGMATIC REMARK 'GOOD LUCK, MR. GORSKY.'

MANY PEOPLE AT NASA THOUGHT IT WAS A CASUAL REMARK CONCERNING SOME RIVAL SOVIET
COSMONAUT.

HOWEVER, UPON CHECKING, THERE WAS NO GORSKY IN EITHER THE RUSSIAN OR AMERICAN SPACE PROGRAMS.

OVER THE YEARS MANY PEOPLE QUESTIONED ARMSTRONG AS TO WHAT THE 'GOOD LUCK, MR. GORSKY'... STATEMENT MEANT, BUT ARMSTRONG ALWAYS JUST SMILED.

ON JULY 5, 1995, IN TAMPA BAY , FLORIDA , WHILE ANSWERING QUESTIONS FOLLOWING A SPEECH, A REPORTER BROUGHT UP THE 26- YEAR-OLD QUESTION TO ARMSTRONG. THIS
TIME HE FINALLY RESPONDED.

MR. GORSKY HAD DIED, SO NEIL ARMSTRONG FELT HE COULD NOW ANSWER THE QUESTION.

IN 1938, WHEN HE WAS A KID IN A SMALL MID-WEST TOWN , HE WAS PLAYING BASEBALL WITH A FRIEND IN THE BACKYARD. HIS FRIEND HIT THE BALL, WHICH LANDED IN HIS NEIGHBOR'S YARD BY THEIR BEDROOM WINDOW.

HIS NEIGHBORS WERE MR. AND MRS. GORSKY.

AS HE LEANED DOWN TO PICK UP THE BALL, YOUNG ARMSTRONG HEARD MRS. GORSKY SHOUTING AT MR. GORSKY.

'SEX! YOU WANT SEX?! YOU'LL GET SEX WHEN THE KID NEXT DOOR WALKS ON THE
MOON!'

My internet is down at home. (Posting from work.) As a result I was not able to log in my dinner and any exercising I did last night until this morning. I had to double check that I entered everything (and saw that I did) because according to my log I only ate a little over 600 calories. Not good!

I know it's going be an issue to eat enough the next little while because I had to go back on some medications and one of the side effects of one of them is a loss of appetite. (It's supposedly a rare side effect, but it does it to me every time I take it.) I know to make myself eat something - even if it's just little things throughout the day and I thought I'd done much better about it yesterday.

If I can't get my internet back up today, I'm worried I'll be getting into trouble for lack of calories over the weekend because I won't be able to keep track of my intake. And I just don't know what else to do to make myself eat more.

Despite all the water I've been drinking, I've been suddenly beset by excessive thirst today.

I'm also very drowsy to the point of being lightheaded. This fact makes me leery of working out today.

I rechecked my calorie count for yesterday. (It occurred to me that I should have done that last night when I saw nearly 1200 in net calories and also discovered I've lost nearly 3 pounds over night).

Turns out I barely ate 1400 calories yesterday. (ETA: I was full. I did 't even wake up hungry this morning - unlike yesterday morning even though I had more calories on Monday.)

Is this why I'm so drowsy today? My body thinks I'm in a famine? When I searched the 'net it appears my thirst is due to sweating more than the water I drank could keep up - even though I had more than 8 8 ounce glasses yesterday.

What's going on with my body?
