I don't know if anyone uses this anymore, but in case anyone does read this, I have some terrible news.
Jack Bradley, navarchus, has passed away after a long illness this last year.
I met him here on livejournal 20 years ago and we have since reconnected on Facebook in recent years. We often spoke on the phone and I'd like to think we have become close, especially over this last year.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. I'm terribly heartbroken.
sitting here, playing ff6 on emulater when i hear a knock at the door. its almost 2am and who the eff is it? i go to the door, don't open it, and ask who it is. she say's its (and i swear this is true) bambi, and she needs help. i ask her through the door, which i've now locked, how i can help her and if she needs me to call 911. she needs to get to someplace called sterling point appts off of ellsworth. i tell her i can't help her and i'm not going to let her inside, but i will call her a cab. she says ok.
i called the cab, explained the situation (to which even the dispatch was creeped out), and told bambi (who is softly sobbing) that the cab will be here in like a half hour or so, but they asked her to stay by the curb to wait.
i told aubrey and she was even more creeped out than i was. but really, as aubs pointed out, who goes to a random house at the end of a culdesac to ask for help when there are gas stations and lit streets just a block or two away?
maybe i've watched too much t.v., but i'm not opening my door to a complete stranger at two am. nope.
a friend and old coworker of mine had gone out with some friends and had like two beers. on the way home, she stopped at Wendy's for some food. she put in her order, paid for the order, then waited a super long time at the window for her food. as the line piled up behind her, they had her move off to the side to wait.
so she waits....and waits....and waits... she is about to go inside to ask what is going on when, "woop! woop!" the cops are behind her.
so wendy's apparently called the cops on her because they thought they could smell alcohol. my friend had to do the breathalizer and got a .09. the cops almost arrest her but find out she's military and instead call her sargeant to report her to him.
