    I'm too tired to figure out how to quote multiple people. But three of you think I should have retaliated physically and here's my response:

    There were three of them. If you want to fight three adolescent males by yourself with no weapons, be my guest. But I prefer my bones unbroken and my vagina unraped.

    Sorry if I sound bitchy, but a lot of people IRL and on internet are coming at me at all "pfft, a TOUGH woman woulda kicked their butts!" As if one middle-aged, 5'4' women with no combat training and no weapon engaging three adolescent males who have already demonstrated aggressiveness is totally a reasonable plan and not at all foolhardy and likely to result in serious bodily harm.

    Being assaulted on the street was bad enough without people making me feel like a pantywaist for not putting myself into an even more dangerous situation.

    Violet, sorry to hear about that assault. Running away and screaming for assistance when one is outnumbered, outgunned, etc., is almost always the smartest thing to do. Rule #1: Don't get killed.

    not living in NYC i just assumed everyone carried an assult weapon of some kind, but then again i live in kentucky and we all do.. and we dont need to.... so where people ACTUALLY need personal self defense weaponry i just assumed they would have them

    hell i am not even trying and i have at least 3 ways to go to jail for a long time if someone was dumb enough to come at me... and that doesnt include the conceal and carry my chicka has....

    After 9-11 i just figured everyone there would hat up.. but then again I am male and never really have to deal with other males stupid or not.


    Again my point was not to make you feel bad but to express my surprise at the entire situation.

    You are never "broke" you are "open to new opportunities"

    at 42 and having been "open to new opportunities" three times so far ( MAJORLY ) i cna only say this... keep your eyes open. This is a time to take your head out of the familliar and seek out the new.

    ignoring my financial situation, every time i stopped looking at what i "knew" and took a good hard receptive look at what I didnt know I leveled up.

    in my life i have been a Janitor, Design Drafter, Pipe Fitter, ASME inspector, ISO 9000 Quality Assurance Specialist, Welder, Air Conditioner Repair, Pizza Delivery, VB coder, PL/SQL Developer, Technical Consultant, Business Analyst, NLP Practitioner, Lab Interpreter, Gardener, Painter, Evangelist, Psychodrama Workshop Assistant, Project Manager.... and got paid for most of it.

    You can do anything you wish.... it is your words that define your reality. PERIOD

    you get to call yourself broke when you choose to be broke.

    from what i know of you i think you get to call yourself a Champion Over-comer.... but what do i know?

    I am throwing so much stuff away.
    I have found that moving is a great opportunity to purge junk.

    Okay, I readily admit this is a puny, non-important GOTD:

    Decided to track food for a couple of days, just to see where things are. Paleo Track either doesn't account for Omega 3 in pastured eggs, or I'm just not smart enough to know how. It keeps giving me a red banner saying my Omega 6:3 ratio is out of whack.

    Also, the media doesn't have any more news to report on the Boston Marathon bombing suspect so now they're speculating and talking to everyone who has ever seen the guy. If they don't have news, they'll manufacture fluff just to stay on the air.

    Okay, enough ranting. Time to clean the cave!

    Oh yeah. The goodwill has gotten carloads of stuff. Many carloads. I am going from a 4br house to a 2br condo so I have really lightened the load.

    Yeap! I tuned out pretty early this morning after I found out I'd be working from home (my work location was affected by the lockdown). My friends were giving a play-by-play of noises in their neighborhoods for a while, but it's been quiet since around 10AM. Just hoping they catch him soon so life can resume...as much as it does after such a thing happens.

    Dude... guns are banned in NYC. Only the bad guys get to have guns up there.
