Geesh, I need to keep up with things here.  I've only written twice this whole month.  Quite a bit is happening as well.  I'm sitting here in the Ambulance while my partners are eating lunch (aren't laptops wonderful).  Over the past two weeks, I've been moving out of my house.  Yes, Ben kicked me out when he decided to move his new girlfriend of 4 weeks and her three kids in.  Yea, I got the shaft.  That's okay.  I hate living in Pennsylvania, and the house has some major problems.  As of now, my stuff is in three places: my house, my parents house and my friend Chris's apartment which is where I'm moving to.  It's kinda weird being homeless.  The Ninja STILL isn't fixed.  I just got around to ordering the parts for it.  This puts me in a bind because I need to get the bike out of Ben's garage.  Oh well.  Life goes on.  I'll keep you all posted on my big move.

Yes, it has been a long time since I've written.  I have been quite busy.  For the next week, I have three jobs (fire department, Sharon Speedway fire crew, and Trumbull County Fair fire crew).  That last one is going to pay for my big mistake.  Yes, the rumors are true.  I had to lay down the bike.  I'm okay except for a few patches of road rash and a couple of bruises.  The Ninja, however, didn't fare so well.  I need a new right side turn signal, right handlebar, and right upper body panel.  Thank heaven it still runs well.  No serious damage.  What a horrible ride.  Around 12:30 or so (AM), I was heading down the road at about 35 mph when a kid ran out in front of me.  I had to lay the bike down to avoid hitting the kid.  I am just happy nobody (including me) was hurt.
