January 17, 2010 – The Color She Bleeds

January 17, 2010 – The Color She Bleeds This shot was accidental. I had intended to just take a pic of the injection site with the pol of blood being held by cohesion. However, the droplet (about 3/8 inch across) decided to make itself into a rivulet of blood right as I took the pic […]

Bankruptcy Court: Survival of the Fittest!

I survived the Trustee’s Meeting today. Survived, but still am dissatisfied with my counsel – It’s pretty sad when I seemingly know more about what’s going on than the guy I just paid $1500 to represent me to the Federal Bankruptcy Court.

After severe beatings and a promise of freedom upon cooperation, Tituba confessed of practicing witchcraft. She was then put […]
