I'm not really angry at the woman, it's the justice system that seems to fail and the insurance company treats him like the criminal instead of a victim. He's fully covered by private insurance so that's a plus, the hospital is newly refurbished and pretty amazing. I guess the saddest thing is remembering what he was like before the accident and what he's like now.
He made me feel like a third class witch doctor.

The system sucks.  And it is tragic.  So sorry for your dad.

We're such sooks here. I'm sure there are foreigners walking around Melbourne enjoying the relative warmth. Most of the locals are already pulling on winter coats and jackets. It's 15C apparently right now. Yesterday was mid to high teens and I was walking around the house in three layers, including a thermal t-shirt. Such sooks.

I'm so sick of rain I could scream.  Yeah I know it's stupid to expect otherwise in Portland, but ENOUGH ALREADY.

See me again in 4 months when I'm bitching about how hot it is.

I like the rain. And if it keeps up like this, May should prove to be quite beautiful. That is if it keeps up its end of the bargain.

I'm with you, MT, a little sun ONCE in a while would be nice.  Been waiting to get my garden going for several weeks, but it's been so soggy, I can't.  Ugh.
