7913 – Newt got fan mail!

Dear Scotto,

I was looking online for some pictures when I came across your blog.  My boyfriend and I are planning on getting married next October and we want to have a costume wedding. I’ve decided to go as Poison Ivy (since she is the most beautiful comic character I can think of, and gosh darn it, I want to be beautiful on my wedding day).  I put “Poison Ivy and Pictures” into the search engine and came across your page.  And I’m glad I did.  Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to see the links you had posted (because my computer is from the iceage).  But your cat, Newton, reminds me so much of my cat, Barry Allen.  He just passed away last March and looks exactly like yours. I just wanted to let you know that I am glad to see the pictures you posted.

Happy memories are plentiful, but never quite enough.

Thanks for both the thoughts of Barry Allen and your kind and clever wit.

Washington, DC.

GeotargetSaw Phoenix as I was leaving work today… she’s currently jobless – apparently some club drama caused her to bail. We had a hug and got caught up with things. She might be preggers, too. I still don’t know what happened with Gil and co. She has a lot more freckles than I realized… I gave her a business card and offered to see if we could find her a gig as a tech (which the company needs).

Amazing how a $100,000 loan can turn into $250,000 when paid back over 30 years. The power of interest.

Lots of 4-way stops going on until late December, it seems.

State utility regulators Wednesday approved an fuel-cost increase for Florida Power & Light Co. that will hike an average customer bill by 19 percent starting Jan. 1. The increase would drive an average 1,000 kilowatt hour monthly bill up by $16.99 to $108.61, up from $91.62.

I’m on day 17 of having no A/C, no Fridge, no Big-brain computer and no stove or microwave oven. Not really a tragedy. I do fine since I have hot showers, some lights and some internet resources. Students have to make up 6 of the 11 missed school days. (shortened Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, mostly.)
