I don't know why you're so intent on being a butthead lately, universe, but I wish you would cut it out. The fact that it was my mom in the hospital this time instead of my dad is not a "nice change." And the fact that the general reaction is "Oh what a relief, it's only pnuemonia!" doesn't mean we're actually happy about it, it just shows the state we're all in at this point.
And while I'm bitching about it, what's the deal with Laurie and I -STILL- being sick? That can die in a fire too, please. Time for some health and prosperity all around, chop-chop!
