You know how you're all ready to get sympathy with your sob story, only to find out somebody's got an even better one? I hate that.

Well, I had the WORST WEEKEND EVER (or so I was planning to embellish it), part of which was spent trying to find the leak in my roof. I only get a full weekend off once every six weeks, so that's not how I wanted to spend it, but hey -- it stopped raining, and who knows for how long? We got called to a house fire Friday, Saturday I was on the roof, yada yada *sob* yada, kids left to do their own thing Saturday night instead of going to the movies with me, yada yada I'm such a sad sack yada, mowed the overgrown lawn but the mower's acting up, yada. Then I get called to go into work early Sunday, thus ending my rotten weekend but giving me another thing to bitch about.

I walk into work, where they're right in the middle of a murder investigation; this gal walked into the lobby and announced she'd just killed her boyfriend. With a hammer. Apparently there might be some connection to a car that was torched. I might add that I was just bragging to a friend in England about how relatively low our crime rate is.

So not only a rotten weekend, but also a good sob story shot right in the ass. I mean, hey -- nobody beat *me* to death with a hammer. So, I have a sinus headache? So what! There are kids starving in Africa.

Okay, I'm done now. I'm going to go back to acting cheerful; just needed to vent without taking a tool to anyone.

Not as uncommon as we'd like to think. There was the guy who was shot in the fast food parking lot in Kendallville, the woman who was stuffed into a barrell east of Brimfield, and of course the elderly lady murdered by burglars on Baseline Road ... we have that crap, just not nearly as often. Of course, I'm in a position in my job to see how many on-the-edge weirdos and dickheads come out after dark ... the average person never hears about most of that stuff, because it comes close to murder without actually getting there.

I remember when Mrs. Gaerte was murdered.... my parents were SHOCKED (we'd only lived here like a year)... poor girl. :(

And the chick in brimfield, that was fuckin' freaky... her uncle works at the gas station in Merriam still... I always wanna hug him.

The problem of living in a rural area is that the bad stuff still happens -- but you know everyone it happens to!
