By the Numbers

5: number of lightening storms to come through here in the past 10 days.

2: number of times the lightening strikes were so close to my house/car that it made me very nervous.

3: number of things that the too-close lightening strikes fried (the motherboard on my laptop and my cable modem) Ergo,

1: the number of motherboards that must now be replaced.

4: the number of days I had left on the parts and service warranty for said laptop.

4.5: the number of hours Bret spent on the phone and Internet chat with the Dell service people, before figuring out what the problem was.

1: the number of nails embedded in one of my rear tires.

3: number of miles i drove before realizing that the weird sound i was hearing was my flat tire.

20: minutes Bret spent changing the tire.

2: number of showers/engagement parties for Ashley and my brother that I've been to in two weeks.

2: the number of showers to which Bret has accompanied me.

Thanks for including me in your numbers list! I've already gotten several comments on my accent - mostly good (I hope!)

I just noticed that you're listening to Snow Patrol. YEA! That album is definitely one of my favorites from this summer.

However, I remember you once saying that the band name sounded like kinda dirty... :)
