From the Guardian comes this report of a Colorado shootout over a wheel-clamp - with tasers. Granted, had these blokes been using firearms, one or both of them would have been dead now, instead of just feeling damn stupid and maybe still a bit twitchy. You see, guys? If you shoot someone with a taser at the same time as he shoots you, they don't cancel each other out!
I wonder, quite seriously, if we're not watching the early days of a new social trend. Taser duels, for people whose arguments aren't quite worth dying for.

I haven't been writing for the past few days because a) I have some thinking to do about how I'm going to do the next bit, and b) I have nowhere to write at the moment, having been temporarily ousted from the Utility Room In The Sky by preparations for the delivery of a new washing machine and drier. I'm hoping normal service will return by the weekend.

Dane said Epstein, whose mother was with him, had tried to remove the clamp with bolt cutters and threatened a guard that he would "kick his ass" while holding a pair of bolt cutters above the guard's head.

It just cracked me up that they added "Whose mother was with him" - snort!

And I do hope your Utility Room returns to normal soon, but not before you are ready to write or you will feel that unwieldy guilt, won't you?!

I know. Over here, there'd be CCTV footage of the whole thing and it'd be on YouTube within a couple of days.
The utility room is never going to be `normal' again, I'm afraid. Normal was a little room crammed with junk and me and the laptop sort of squished in. Soon it'll be a neat little room with a washer and a drier and me and the laptop sort of squished in. I mourn the glory days of the Utility Room In The sky.

I am so sorry about your Utility Room in the Sky! I know that changing routines and environments can really mess up your writing. I hope that you get comfortable in the room soon.

(((hugs))

Ah, hell, K, don't worry; I'm just being a drama queen. Everything will be fine and all things will be fine.

Nope, not buying it. You're NOT a drama queen! You have every right to feel a little disgruntled, at the least. Hope it does get all settled for you. I know that environment DOES make a difference.

Anyway, it's a moot point now, because I'm back in the Utility Room In The Sky. Just me, a washer, a drier, and a cat. Home again, home again.

Excellent! And i'm glad that the cat is in place. One always needs a cat at one's side. Hope the litter tray isn't there with you, too!

Nah, he'll let me know when he needs to answer a call of nature. All he wants to do is curl up on the floor and go to sleep.
