Bikes & Swine
As you may have already heard, Aiden's b-day bike was stolen from or backyard Friday night. It may be time to start looking for a house outside of town some where... Dexter or Saline maybe. I'm tired of the crime around here, but conversely, I love the community. Maybe I should don a cape & cowl & start fighting crime under cover of darkness. We watched the 2 hour series premier of the 1990 CBS show, The Flash, last night. I'm not quite hat fast, but what I lack in speed, I can make up for in stupid one-liners. The show seemed to fall between the twin peaks of Richard Belzer's career: The Groove Tube & Det. John Munch on the Law & Order franchise. The show sucked, but like the 1989 Batman film, it has inspired me to do something about the crime in this town. All I need is a slogan & a flashy logo... & an alias & some skills. Then I'll clean up this fuckin' town.In other news, Aiden was sick last week, & it turns out that he had Swine Flu. It's interesting to be a part of the big Swine Flue scare of '09, but on the other hand, it sucks because, while he is fine now, Stephanie has gotten it & I imagine I'm next in line. Aiden's manifested itself in a high fever & vomiting; Stephanie's seems to be a crazy headache & a fever (not as high as Aiden's though). Hopefully, I'll just get the fever & be able to ride out the hallucinations for a couple days. Keep your fingers crossed for me.
