About the underwear-on-backwards thing: really, I’m not a prude, and normally I’d have no problem whatsoever going into the public bathroom and doing a switcheroo. But when I wrote that, I was thinking about the main bathroom on the first floor of this building, which has a lot of traffic and wide gaps in the stalls, and I didn’t want people I worked with to walk in and catch a glimpse of my nethers.
About the privacy thing: I’ve decided to set up a mailing list for some private posts. I’m not sure how regularly I’ll use it or if it will work well for what I’m thinking of, but if you are interested in joining it, please use the contact form on this site to let me know.
And finally: I have been getting an absolutely ridonkulous number of search hits for Marc Lamarre this week. Like, hundreds. For those of you who don’t live here, Marc Lamarre was a very popular meteorologist on our local news who suddenly disappeared from the newscasts last week. His name came up in comments on a post I wrote a long time ago, and I’ve been getting some comments and emails in the last few days about him, including a rumor that he died of an overdose.
For the record, channel 10 says he’s not dead. The station will not comment on the reasons for letting him go. I too have heard the rumors about drugs and rehab and whatnot and I don’t know if they’re true. I don’t know the guy at all, but I thought he was a great personality on the local news and I’m sorry to see him go. If it’s true that he has a drug problem, that’s very sad and I hope he’s able to get it straightened out.
Honestly, though, I have no idea where the “dead of an overdose” rumor came from, but I’m pretty sure he’s still alive somewhere. You’ll all just have to get your weather from now on from loyal reader and chronic self-Googler Jamey Singleton instead.
