Yeah, I can't think of any other reason than elections.

By the way, I haven't been here for a while, I wish I had more time to spam a little bit over here


Still, I'm very happy you're back, Verso, hope you'll get better soon!

Thanks, PLH. It will all be clear tomorrow when I receive results of a repeated MRI of the brain. I'm already shaking.

Re Poles and flowers. I'm 100% of Polish ancestry myself, so I ought to know this without going to Google. But I don't.

Google tells me October 11 is the anniversary of Casimir Pulaski's death (he was a Polish general who helped - was killed, in fact - in the American Revolution). Last Sunday was observed (complete with a parade) as Pulaski Day in New York. (Why not this weekend? Because the second Monday in October - tomorrow - is Columbus Day.) Some places celebrate Pulaski Day in March (around his birth date) instead. Perhaps to get away from Columbus Day, although they'd fall close to Saint Patrick's Day, the other huge ethnic holiday here. Google tells me all of that; the only thing I know personally is that there's a Pulaski Day parade in Philadelphia and I think it's this time of year. That's what made me think, when I read Nexis' question, "when's Pulaski Day?" and sent me to Google.

29C and sunny forecast here. Which is why you won't hear from me for the rest of the day.

Today is the happiest day in my life. I received results of a repeated MRI of the brain, and I can't believe it didn't show anything. I'm reborn. But I have enough of this crap, so I'm doing lumbar puncture on Friday. It hurts as hell, but I'll survive. Even my neurologist openly admitted he doesn't have a bloody clue what I have, so I probably produced a new disease.

I have to quote what I said when you believed you had multiple sclerosis:

I was sure then!

BTW, now I read that you probably produced a new disease... If I'm right, let's name it the Verso disease .

Weird stuff happens in the Netherlands.

This video is from yesterday. A guy was sleeping in his parked commercial van. However, it was parked on the left lane of the A16 motorway.



From October 9th, a car on fire on the shoulder and a Renault Twingo crashes into a fire truck.
