Sibling Revelry

I talked to my little bro a bit ago. I haven't heard from him in quite some time... but then again, being a new Marine takes up your time.
It looks like he's going to be stuck at 29 Palms for his next station, possibly lasting his entire enlistment. HA HA HA, I told him he didn't want to be a tank mechanic! That's what he gets for not listening to his older, wiser sister: life in the middle of a desert.
It was really good to hear from him. I can't believe I'm old enough to have a little brother who's 19 and in the Marine Corps. I'm so proud of him.

Storm of the century?

Yeah right. It's nearly midnight, it's been snowing hard since 9 this morning, and the sidewalks have yet to be covered. It's just not doing well in the "sticking" category.
Now I remember why I don't watch the news. They have a bit of a tendancy to blow things more than just a little out of proportion. A dog sneezes on an old woman in Buffalo, and suddenly there's a rabies epidemic sweeping across New England. Someone's radio gets stolen and it's a rash of gang violence. That stands for TROUBLE! Right here in River City! Damn news reporters.
And people think I'm weird for not watching...
