Hi. It's Joe.
Well, I just found out that this morning a nuclear plant in northern Illinois, not too far from Rockford, broke down and began spewing radioactive steam into Wisconsin, thanks to southerly winds.
Don't worry, I took my iodine.
But when were they going to tell us this? This happened at 10 AM. Why did they wait all day?
Now the officials are trying to say tritiated steam is completely safe.
They must not know that we have the Internet: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tritium#Health_risks
When I was in college, doing work study, a professor made me clean out vials of tritium into a hot sink. I don't know how radioactive tritium is exactly, but it made my watch stop and I was late for class. So if it can make my watch stop, I don't think it is harmless.
Anyway, readers, I am easily pissed off these days, so I apologize. I am still a little tweaked off at the upper management where I work, and I am mainly taking it out on tail gaters and asshole drivers on my way to work, but sometimes it spills over, so I am sorry.
So, I practiced piano tonight, for over an hour. I am working out a jazz song called Be a Clown. It's cheesy, but a good one for a beginner. I am doing it slow and I am taking my mom's advice and learning it in reverse. It is coming along well. I am jazzing it up as compared with the show tune version I linked to. I am 1/3 on piano. I will do Welsh tomorrow and hopefully get in a workout.
