can we find a few tax dollars somewhere?

this sign was spotted on the golden gate bridge recently. apparently, they’ve got this call box so you can speak to a crisis counselor in case you were thinking about jumping to your death. you’d think we’d find enough tax dollars somewhere to get this phone fixed.

kenny george is tall

i just saw this guy on espn last night. he’s tall (7-8) like gheorghe muresan was, but hopefully he can keep his body in order and make it to the nba. the game is faster-paced than college ball for sure, but there’s gotta be a place for someone who can dunk the ball without even jumping:

also, i guess i lost my wallet either on dec 31 or jan 1. i thought i had just misplaced it around the house or marcos might have hidden it. after a couple days of looking without finding it, i noticed a couple weird charges coming through on the online statement so i canceled the cards right away. all the fraudulent transactions were done right within a mile of the house. since i lost my wallet along with the debit card, it would be easy for them to get gas, for example, because they have my zip code from my drivers license to authenticate with. what a bother. we got robbed a few months back and now this is happening. i’m going to have to revisit my personal handling of that stuff and see if we can totally lock down to prevent this from happening. the bank will refund any money from transactions we didn’t originate, but it’s more just a hassle than anything else having to get new cards and all that. to top it off, it was a nice wallet that leslee had gotten for me. bleh. happy new year!
