As I sit here with a tissue, twirled into a little point and wedge into one nostril while propping my head up my other hand cause I feel no strength to hold it up myself, I wonder how one could ever take something like breathing through your nose for granted. Yet somehow I have.
Do you know how completely retarded you look drinking out of cup only to remove it, gasp for air through the mouth like you had been drowning and then return to drinking?
I hate, HATE having a sinus infection but …I am in awe at my body’s capacity to create snot and mucus. Where does it all come from? I have blown my nose straight through two boxes of kleenex and am working on my third in the past, I dunno, 4 days and yet it’s still in my nose, it always returns. Efficient little boogers they are.
I’m miserable…in a physical sense, very happy in others. Guess you gotta roll with the punches.
This is too funny not to mention.
There was a complete write-up in the local paper, front page news mind you, regarding how this woman got a DUI on her BIKE. BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I had to post this, cause it reads just like one of those dumbest criminal write-ups. What makes it even funnier is that this “woman” is my
husband‘s Aunt. (by marriage – that’s very important to say.)

A Ravenna woman has been cited with DUI, running a red light, and hit skip by Ravenna police – all while riding a bicycle.
Brenda E. Jones, 48, also known as Jane Cracker, of 608 Page St. was riding her bike northbound on Sycamore Street at the Main Street intersection early Wednesday morning when she failed to stop for a red light, according to Ravenna police.
This is the fifth time she has been charged with DUI in Portage County since 1992. She was found guilty on two of the charges, another charge was dismissed, and the final charge was reduced with conviction of the reduced charge.
Police report that after turning onto Main Street, she reportedly dodged one vehicle, caused another to swerve and then struck a westbound car head on. The car was not damaged.
Jones fell to the pavement and the car’s driver, Thomas Ballard Jr. and his wife, both of Ravenna Township, told Jones to lie down and wait for a squad. Instead, police say Jones grabbed her bike and fled north on Sycamore Street.
She was later spotted by Lt. Richard Bennett riding the bike north on Cleveland Road. She refused to stop pedaling and rode the bike off the road and into a bush.
Sgt. Tim Mullen said witnesses to the crash told him Jones smelled of alcohol. Mullen said he later met with Jones and reported she was highly intoxicated and smelled of beer. According to the report, Jones told Mullen she drank five beers.
Jones told Mullen that her bicycle had no brakes and that is why she sped out onto Main Street. Mullen said he checked and found both the front and rear brakes were operational.
She was taken to Robinson Memorial Hospital in Ravenna by the Ravenna Township Fire Department.
She was taken to the Portage County jail after her hospital treatment and booked on an active warrant that was issued by the sheriff’s department.
Yes, she really does use the alias, Jane Cracker. I just can’t believe they wrote that in the paper though and what’s worse? She actually called a local news channel and told them she was being profiled by the police because of her prior DUIs and that’s she’s going to fight the charges. They showed her riding around on her bike in her driveway looking like complete white trash with her front tooth missing, talking about how she has a bum wrist and ankle and the brakes were bad on her bike and that’s why she couldn’t stop. They actually mentioned that she doesn’t have a car and got her bike out of the trash. (severe eye roll)
Now, let me mention that she fractured her wrist and ankle falling while she was drunk, if you watched closely, she uses the brakes in the video clip, she doesn’t have a car cause she wrecked it driving drunk and she did this interview from my
husband‘s Uncle’s house, which he’s kicked her out of and she keeps breaking into. This is a shining example at how the media swings things to create controversy. Like, casually leaving out the 20 other public records she has for being drunk in public, possession of drugs, etc, etc. this is her 4th charge for something or other in the last 6 MONTHS! Anybody who knows her, could tell you she’s a crackhead. She’s lucky to be alive, hell, she’s lucky she’s not in jail and she’s gonna fight it? She’s gonna make accusations like that? You rode out in front of traffic, dumbass!
Some people just never learn.
I’m just amused to be around TiVO when it happens.
