It’s just one of those days

Last night my boyfriend and his roommate both insinuated I would be capable of abusing and/or killing the roommate’s dog because its barking annoyed me.

To avoid them I went downstairs to the basement to lie on the futon and read, only to discover that a ceiling pipe had leaked and the futon was soaking wet.

The next morning I drove home and was unable to get into the driveway because the town had paved the driveway and left a traffic cone smack in the middle of the entrance. I had to park on the street.

I went round to the back of the car to open the hatch, and my key broke off in the lock.

I went to the side of the car and opened the passenger door to get my books, and one library book fell out and landed in a puddle. I will probably have to pay for it.

I checked the mail and got an unexpected letter from my health insurance company saying I owe my family doctor $68.

I went next door to my neighbor’s to return a book I’d borrowed. I love talking to her and hoped she could cheer me up, but she wasn’t at home.

A few minutes ago I drank some milk. Halfway through the glass, I realized there was a dead insect at the bottom.

This doesn’t seem right…

The National Center for Missing Adults has a guy named Martin Camacho profiled. It says he is 13 but I don’t think that can be true.

1. NCMA profiles adults only
2. The guy certainly doesn’t look 13 in the picture
3. He has a lot of tattoos, more than a 13-year-old could be expected to have
4. He was released from an adult jail just before he disappeared

I wonder if his year of birth is actually 1971, not 1981. I will write them and ask.

Everett Ruess located!

The body of Everett Ruess, a young man who disappeared in the Utah desert SEVENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO, has apparently been identified. A witness allegedly saw a man chased and killed by some young Ute Indians, and he buried the body under rocks afterward. The story became public in 2008 after the witness’s family ‘fessed up. It’s said that DNA has confirmed the identification 10 billion to one, but it’s not really official until the National Geographic makes an announcement next week.

I am stunned. Frankly, I didn’t believe he would ever get found. This is the oldest resolved missing persons case I can think of, excepting the Romanovs. But they were a special case, being assassinated royalty and all.

It just goes to show you should never give up, because there’s always the possibility, however remote, that something will happen and you will find answers.
