outlook hazy; try again later

I was the only one there for my swordfighting class tonight, so it was one-on-one.  I think I did much better on the sparring this time.

On the way home some dumbshit in a little coupe pulled off of the interstate going 60-70 to avoid the road repaving, and landed in a huge water-filled ditch, hydroplaned sideways, and hit a signpost, flipping his car about 45 degrees into the air.  Turns out they weren't even repaving the road at that time.  It was pretty cool though.

When I got out of my truck at home, two guys were walking around the corner and I got a baaaad feeling about them, so I pulled my pistol from the seat.  They were talking like they had just robbed someone and one of them was walking towards me.  I was about to have to point the fucking thing at the guy when his friend told him not to and they kept walking toward the ghetto.  I walked up the street to see if there were any busted windows and such, but no luck.  When I came back to check on my truck, there were 2 cop cars and an ambulance right where I lost sight of them in the ghetto.  Whatever happened over there, those two assholes were in the thick of it for sure.  It's a fucked up situation living 2 blocks from the ghetto and still paying the fucking historic district rent rates.

I'm going through post-con nicotine withdrawal again, it's hitting harder than I remember it last year.  I had a smoke waiting on that tow truck yesterday.  I felt guilty, but them's the breaks.  I was so much happier when I was smoking, and I personally think I breathed easier then.  I sure as hell didn't mind weighing 40 pounds less.  I kind of wish I had some terminal disease or knew the world was ending in 5 years so I could just say fuck it and go back to 2 packs a day.  And quit my job, too.
