LOVE the cupcake nails!!!  But I think it’s over-the-top to have the glitter on the non-cupcakey nails.

10 months tomorrow…

I spend countless hours each night, seemingly torturing myself, watching videos of Dan or videos about Dan.  I’ve probably gone through more tissue boxes these last 10 months than I went through my whole span at college.  I suppose it’s part of the grieving process…part of acceptance.  Yet it never seems to get any easier.  I still sometimes hope that, even though I’ve had many amazing experiences at the races I’ve gone to this year, I will wake up and Dan will still be alive.  I don’t think I will ever be able to fully comprehend what happened that day, even though I am able to process it logically and intellectually.  I don’t think that the events of October 16, 2011 will ever seem real to me.  #MentionADateYouWillNeverForget has been trending on Twitter.  I wish I could say that date would me something happy and special in my life - some kind of momentous occasion.  For the foreseeable future, it’s not though.  My mom made a dentist appointment the other day for October 16, 2012.  Two months away.  In two months’ time, maybe I will stop counting the months and start counting the years.  Or maybe not.  It took me several months to stop counting the weeks.  But even if I stop counting the months, I’ll still think about Dan every day as I watch all the videos on YouTube that immortalize him.  I’ll still think about him every night as I lie awake in bed, unable to sleep.  I hope that one day I can go a day or two without thinking about Dan, but I will never forget him.  And more than anything, I wish we could have him back.

My Sister Paid Progressive Insurance to Defend Her Killer In Court
I’ve been sending out some impertinent tweets about Progressive Insurance lately, but I haven’t explained how they pissed me off. So I will do that here as succinctly as possible. There’s a general understanding that says, “insurance companies— oh they’re awful,” but since Progressive turned their shit hose on my late sister and my parents, I’ve learned some things that really surprised me.
I’ll try to cleave to the facts. On June 19, 2010, my sister was driving in Baltimore when her car was struck by another car and she was killed. The other driver had run a red light and hit my sister as she crossed the intersection on the green light.
