Update

Thanks for concern about me beeing shot. I don't know if I'm paranoid, but I think the pellet is still in my arm. I'm reluctant to take a day off work and go to the doctor just for that, but what happens if I leave it in there? Lead poisoning? Mental retardation? Voting republican?

In other news, I had a foundation guy come in and look at the bulging wall in my basement. He said the bricks didn't need to be pulled out and re-stacked, and is supposed to send me an estimate on how much it will be to repoint all the bricks that are missing mortar, take out and put back in the ones that are sticking out a bit and cover the whole thing up with parging (sp?), which is basically cement that I can just leave as is, or cover with drywall eventually.

The stairs that got warped will probably have to be replaced too, but I think I'll hire someone for that too. I am through taking on big projects. I'm still waiting for an estimate, but hopefully it won't be too bad.

I've been busy lately. Besides crying over Fannie and Freddie being nationalized by the Communists (I own stock in both companies), I have been really busy with non-work stuff. As for work...there may be some changes soon, but I won't say anything about it because I don't want to jinx it.

Wait, what? This is insane! If you'd gotten shot in the eye, you'd be blind. Who the fuck are these cops just letting stupid kids go? What is WRONG with the world?

i know this because..you are not (hard to believe this i know) NOT the only person i know that has been shot by a bb gun...(i blame it on growing up in the south) but one guy i know has had one lodged in his brain since 4th grade...when his BFF shot him right in the ear.... cool i know right?!

That really sucks about your arm! If I were you, I wouldn't mind taking off a day to go to the doctor. I have 2 weeks of sick leave at my job that's separate from my vacation time, so I take off an entire day just to go to the DENTIST. :)

This is serious. If there is the slightest chance that you'll vote republican you need to have that thing removed!

If there is even the slightest chance that lead pellet in your arm is going to make you vote Republican, than you should get it out! I know DC will go for Obama, but every vote still counts! It's more likely to leech lead into your body and that can't be good.
