F*ck Cancer

By | FYI | No Comments

Yep. That’s how I feel toward all cancers. According to the Official Sponsor of Birthdays®, 1:2 males and 1:3 females will develop some type of cancer in their lifetime. I do not like those odds.

Texans cannot drive in any weather other than one-hundred degrees and sunny, (and even that is sometimes challenging), let alone the current torrential downpours we are experiencing as a result of Hurricane Alex – the strongest June hurricane since Alma in 1966 – so, the likelihood of car accidents in Austin today have exponentially increased. (end tangent) Say a prayer. Watch this video. Buckle up.
