Because I'm getting really sad when I get online and see everyone's at BlogHer and I'm not
I'll unload this meme on you that I horked from Badger:
1. Have you ever been searched by the cops? Not my person, but once in the fall/winter of 1984 I was hanging out in a parking lot late at night talking to Rusty Bates and some local cops came and started harassing us and searched our vehicles. They found some roaches in the ashtray of Rusty's truck but nothing in my car. Then they told us to go home.
