Bad day

My friend Adam died today. I hadn't seen him in a few months but that makes no difference. There are few people in this world that made me laugh like that man did. He always had something witty to say. He was always able to point out when I was being stupid. He gave me the best advice I've ever gotten in regards to women. I'm not going to share it because he gave it to me, not you. There are friends that I have that are closer than Adam and I were, but not many. He was one of a kind. If I wouldn't see him in six months it was no big deal. We picked up right from where we left off. I loved him like a brother. He taught me of Robert Pollard and Guided By Voices, Bauhaus and everything else that was cooler than what anyone else was listening to. I wish that I would've stopped to see him, but I was too busy.
If anyone does take the time to read this please listen close. Make the time to see your friends and family. There are no second chances when they are gone.
My friend Adam died today, and I will miss him forever.
I love you Adam.

Well, what d'ya know.

I just spent the majority of my Saturday removing the ice dams from my gutters. All of this because my neighbor has too many trees which in turn have too many leaves. From about mid September until the leaves have all fallen it is a constant battle between myself and my neighbors leaves. Not that I give much of a shit that they are on my lawn, because lets face it they really don't hurt much there. It's when they settle into my gutters that the problems start. What with all of the hole plugging and whatnot. Anywho, right before the snow hit this year I made it a point to check my gutters for any remnants of said leaves to avoid said hole plugging. Hence causing said ice dams. I had them all clean and ready for winter. Well, the fuckin' leaf fairy and her whore like cousins must've gotten together and decided they would play a cruel joke on me, because in removing these ice dams what did I find? FUCKING LEAVES! Oh well, I guess I didn't have anything better to do anyway.
