Oh god, how horrible

merriam webster defines Accident like this: 1 a: an unforeseen and unplanned event or circumstance. Curious that the definition leaves the emotion out. Merriam and Webster never tell us how heart wrenching they really can be; even for total strangers.

This horrible accident happened on the commute home yesterday. I spoke to my mom this morning and she said that the poor girl's dad was waiting at the next stop with her supper. Oh god i can hardly stand it. It's just so unfathomably sorrowful.

Every so often when i think my life sucks, these awful things happen and remind me to be more thankful, more appreciative and more deserving of the really great life I've got. I'm horrified that it took another family's sorrow in order to do so.

So in keeping with molly's TGIF idea, i'm gonna give it a go too. Though today is only thursday, i'll make a post anyway.
Today i am mostly thankful for my family. Even though they drive me nuts, I'm thankful that they help me, and they aren't too angry when i'm less than helpful. I really love my family. And i like to think they really love me too. A thought that makes me sad (because i am reminded of the poor man on the platform at Waban) is that my mom would bring me supper if i asked her to. I really am a lucky person, and i really am thankful for that.

sweet georgia brown!

Did you watch that game yesterday? Jon Lester threw a no hitter! A no hitter! no one even got a single! Jacoby ellsbury made a great play in center, and that was the only play of concern the whole night!

He was throwing gas the whole night. It's nice to see him throw so well, because he does sometimes have a bad inning, or sometimes he's a bit fall-apart-at-the-seams-ish. but he had his good stuff last night, that's for sure!

A no hitter. Wow.

the devil rays?

Yipes! but the devil rays are in first place in the AL East. I don't think it will last very long, but it does appear that they are becoming a pretty good ball club. the AL East is really full of good teams, and adding Tampa bay to the mix is going to make for a good summer indeed.

If there is one good thing that came of them topping the sox in the standings, it is that they beat the yankees to do so.
