stupid poison oak..
I'd like to point out that Eastern Poison Oak is not actually supposed to be found this far north. But, of course, it's near my front steps right where the cable guys had to install some cable... so they chopped at it a lot and threw a bunch of the branches over to the side. And then the UB handled it, and then handled me.
Yah, we're both so covered with poison rash now. :(
