From the articles I read it sounds like Halls didn't give a damn about safety at all and was more worried about getting things done.
'Same Time, Same Place'
Spike's Bitches 49: As usual, I'm here to help you, and I... are you naked under there?
Spike-centric discussion. Lusty, lewd (only occasionally crude), risqué (and frisqué), bawdy (Oh, lawdy!), flirty ('cuz we're purty), raunchy talk inside. Caveat lector.
I went to my aunt's and helped work with the obituary. Mostly I typed things up and hoped it could be moved around.
There was so much to put in and trying to get it with out making it cost a fortune is hard.
People have been bringing food and when I went to get groceries last time I didn't get a lot thinking we would be gone. So I took a bunch from her.
My period finally started and I want to just....I feel like crap. And Dad only has white towels and white sheets.
But we have fire logs and can make s mores at some point.
And no matter how inexperienced the rest of the crew is, the AD in question has 25 years of experience in the business; he was on the crew for one of the Crow sequels, for fuck’s sake.
Yikes, that makes it so much worse in my opinion.
ltc's teacher this year is awesome for the most part, but more than two days notice that all the kids will be wearing orange and black to school on Friday would have been nice. ltc has lots of Halloween type things to wear, but she has now decided that there can't be any other colors in the outfit. So, this should be fun.
Lately I feel like ibcant communicate verbally with anyone. Either I'm repeating myself because maybe I'm mumbling or talking top softly and can't tell. Or I'm trying to speak clearer and louder and it's taken as me being angry or harsh.
Or I say something or ask a question and no hears to even ask me to repeat myself. Because I keep repeating what I've said over and over. Or I'll say something repeatedly and then later whatever it is comes up and it's like brand new information or that that I didn't say anything and I'm just doing something.
Mostly with M and my nephew but a little with my mom and his mom .
Or I'm explaining or saying I'm going to do something or doing it and then it becomes suggestions to do something else or reasons why my way won't work .
I might be out of practice in talking to people .
askye, that sounds frustrating and obviously could be part of the concussion. But I noticed after being at home during Covid, I also somehow seemed to forget how to speak so other people understood me. Like I could not think of words or form sentences. Because I was so shy, and then learned to interact with the world by basically acting my muscles got rusty being mostly alone and not talking much. Like I can't always access the script.
I think it's a combination of things. The only people I talk to on a daily (or almost daily basis) are M, his mom, and E (my nephew) so that gets .. I need other people to talk to . I just am very much a loner and I forget how to conversate.
Very random, but: lately, every now and then when I need a good laugh, I return to the great foursome discussion from 2008 (linked to few posts back for context). It never fails. So, this just to say: thank you. I'm happy and grateful for this place. I love you, and I miss everyone we've lost since.
And I still can't believe that some of you were willing to write me in a fictional foursome just to distract me from the war.
Aw Shir that was a lovely reminisce. I miss Omnis all the time.
Omnis leaves a hole in my life, for sure. He'd be so happy to know you posted that, Shir.
I am very happy I got to meet him and I still think of him often.
