I fired a gun and made a quiche.

In the SAME DAY.

Today I fired a rifle. It was a .45-70, and I even hit the target a few times.

It was simultaneously empowering and terrifying. And painful.

(note to women: When firing a rifle for first time, put some thought into the bra you choose to wear. Specifically, think about that little metal buckle that allows you to adjust the straps. DO NOT choose a bra where this buckle is on the front of your shoulder. The recoil from the gun is going to hurt a little no matter what, and if you've got a pointy metal square between your shoulder and the gun, it WILL bruise you. I wish someone had warned me.)

Lately I've been:

- playing with a laser, full time
- rock climbing A LOT
- a lot more moody than usual
- single
- getting bored of swing dancing with the same people all the time
- not writing. oh well, it was fun while it lasted.

you're not Dave Chappelle.

I shared the road with an ambulance today, as I was driving up Skinker. As is customary, I pulled over to the right and stopped. A man walking along the Forest Park paths did the same (stepped over to the right and stopped walking, that is). Once the ambulance was gone, he began walking again. He had such a gigantic grin on his face, you could totally tell he thought that was the best joke ever.
