Looking for dyspraxic gamers- anyone around? For a friend, her son has dyspraxia and she's reaching out.

@signalstation Got a mysterious envelope in the mail today. Some west-coast lunatic mailed me some vile lies about our troops. Can you believe it?

The itch of wanting to write and having everything to say.

The desire to be silent and watch the world spin on its own.

The quivering hands.

A friend once pointed out to me what a marketing coup the term "identity theft" was for the banks.

There is no such thing as identity theft. There is only companies' opening accounts in the wrong people's names. The culprits are companies who do an inadequate job of making sure their customers are who they say they are.

And yet the cost of this incompetence is borne almost entirely by someone who had no direct involvement in the actual crime.

Me: I could just ruin this cake.

My mom: I could just ruin your face.
