Today my every thought and action is with my dear friend and her family. I love you so, so much.

Dr. Richard Manthey, emergency room doctor, stands at the entrance to the Ochsner Hospital Emergency room, Tuesday, Oct 24, 2006. Before Hurricane Katrina, the emergency room at the Jefferson Parish medical center examined about one patient a day undergoing a psychiatric crisis, Manthey said. Now, they frequently see 12 a day, as a crisis in mental health care has overwhelmed the city's few operating hospitals.
Yeah, you know I come from a long line of badasses, right? First there was Gustav Adolph (the Warmonger Badass), then there was James "Jim" Bowie (Frontier Badass), then there is my cousin Joy Manthey (River Pilot/Nun badass), and now there is my uncle, who as you can see in the picture to the right, is a badass. Other than being a respected E.R. doctor who stayed at Ochsner during Katrina, an athlete, a father of four lovely girls, and all around awesome guy, Richard is apparently exceptionally talented at looking like he is ready to kick some mental health butt. Represent. Don't you think he looks like Dolph Lundgren? Although I would hope that one of my uncle's famous quotes is not "If he dies...he dies."

I would like to send a shout out to all my friends who have had recent birthdays. Angela, Susan, Brian, and my dad. I love you all, even you, Dad.

Wikipedia is a go! Think of all the time you spend surfing MySpace and and roll that into increasing your knowledge. Every time I pull it up and it imbues me with the facts that I need without hesitation, I feel like Neo emerging from one of his Matrix learning sessions. Bzzzzzt! "I know Kung Fu..."

Topics I have successfully researched recently (in no particular order):
Yo-Yo Ma
The War of Currents
Arab-Israeli Conflict
Bicorne Hats
Jennifer Grey
Yom Kippur
Altamont Free Concert
Miura Map Fold
Bill Gates' House
Topsy the Elephant
Death erection

So maybe you can read some of these articles and we will have something to talk about next time there is an awkward silence between us. Other than that, I dunno, don't underestimate the importance of good deodorant.
