I did like someone’s quote of “Since it was a drill I wasn’t sure at what point we “knew” something was wrong.” GOOD POINT.

“You'd probably have to hump him, is what I'm saying.”
Chaos Attraction: Trainwreck 07.31.2015 by Jennifer
LeBron James is delightful and hilarious and who knew he had it in him? Downton Abbey watching, cheapskate bill payer who doesn’t wanna end up like MC Hammer (well, who does?), fervent pimper of Cleveland, plays the “best friend” role perfectly.
Chaos Attraction: Another Last Night In Summer 07.31.2015 by Jennifer

Not Travelling At Speed: Unstable 07.17.2015 by kju
He got me to point at the general area where it was sore, then took my right foot in both hands, one on the heel and one cupping the toes. He compressed my foot and if I recall correctly he tried to twist it. There was no pain, and I said so. He said “Then it’s not a stress fracture, because there is no way I’d be able to do that otherwise”.

So I had the job interview today. It went well.
Chaos Attraction: Sunday and Monday 07.8.2015 by Jennifer
