    Open primaries, that would be wonderful. Can't help wondering how much it's costing the state to put on this election. There are some contested races btw, just not here, or in my party...

    Good news, there are no political ads running!

    Yeah, I'll go back and delete this soon. Not yet.
    OMG; I was just typing out a not-so-kind letter for this thread about my own mother. Hugs to you, lph. As you know, I understand all too well.

    Dear self, get a grip. This is a difficult time but there is no need to smoke, drink, keep late nights and then attempt to squeeze training into it somehow. It doesn't work. Plus, might I remind you, you've been warned about becoming asthmatic. Smoking does that no favors. School starts next week, get your act together. Now.

    I live in a STATE where this is the case.

    Let me take a wild guess what your district boundaries look like... (about like ours I'm sure, probably no different anywhere)

    Yeah, the state isn't radically different as a whole, but there are pockets where there are other viable choices. Until three years ago, I had always lived in one of those pockets. Not anymore.

    Alexis, let us know how cutting smoking goes for you. Sooner to banish, the better. It gets harder 10, 20, 30 years later in life.

    Shootingstar, it's actually not too bad, I'm mostly a social/situational smoker, so I only smoke when things get highly stressful. I've been able to quit cold turkey with no problems. This time, though, my body is giving me the extra kick to quit by becoming extremely irritated with cigarette smoke.

    Dearest Uncle!

    You must be excited to see me racing after all those years we watched you climb through the categories. The fact that you decided to gift me your Louis Garneau Gennix R1 frame to build up is evidence enough. This saves me... welp... let's just say the price of the frame alone exceeds what I expected to spend on a complete bike. I shall enjoy giving it life again

    Dear apartment managers,

    Raising the rent by $250/mo? Really?! And not including parking? Much as I hate to move, I think you'll have a vacant apartment soon.
