and my first thoughts on reading the lame CNN brief that is on my homepage (a journalists need for "news" never dies but maybe I need a better source) are, "I hope Oakley's family is OK." (Oakley is the webgodess who is creating my website olaina.com. I think she's also some kind of princess or something, or lives on the same block as the princess "back home" or something like that....) So of course I know the only way to find out immediately (she's at work--that's what people who aren't on disability (and boy do I keep proving to myself that there's no way I could work now--more on that later) do during the week, so I can't call her) is look at her blog. You can too, at http://oakmonster.blogspot.com/
I strongly suggest anyone who needs constant updates or explanations of what's really going on go to Oakmonster's Den--she's much more informative and entertaining than the pundits who make the world look like the handbasket is getting closer to hell every 15 minutes.
I love Oakley! (and her webgoddess abilities!) And her sense of humor and news. :)
