What's going on in your life?
« on: August 07, 2007, 07:09:52 PM »
I thought we should start this again. Hopefully it'll be pinned?

=)

--------------------------------------------------
We just finished a letter to our landlord with three pages of complaints. The guy is as useless as matches on the moon and dumber than a bag of wet mice. We don't expect anything to be fixed. The real intent of the letter is to prove requests were made and to use it to break the lease.

Looking for additional employment opportunities but most people here know that.

I met Feedback at ComicCon! VERY nice guy! =)

Will I get Night Owl points for quitting but not as much for getting fired?
Will I still be a member of the Owl's Pals? I'd hate to turn in my card. It's got a real owl feather under the lamination and everything.


Night Owl: Oh, indeed. I quit many a job ...better than being fired. You can keep your card... in fact, you get double points for quitting!

relatives have been in from Germany this past week and then other day when i was checking the stuffs on the old board cousin was behind me and he said that than sounded very much like a guy who frequents a german board.

i've been working at a hair salon. very interesting it has been.

the bf's mom wants to add me to their cell phone plan, i'm not complaining.

i leave for school the 24th and have no idea what i'm bringing with me besides a comp and printer.
In case of rapture, can I have your car?

Wife is graduating college soon, probably going to move to Austin for her to go to grad school. I can use that as an excuse for me to bust my ass and get into the music or video game industry full-time. If nothing else it's a change of scenery.

going into 10th this year.  not much news there.

but was in a car accident 2 days ago with my sister and her friend, who had her little girl with her. things have been kinda screwey since.  the minivan got slammed into by a pickup truck going 50 in a 25, barely even a scratch on that thing and her van it totaled.

ambulance had to come and get the girl.  back injury.  :-\

to top the bullshit off after the report was taken they tried to have it towed, but when they saw the bill they just drove away.

other than that got a couple family reuinions coming up, finally got a job and got my temps.

I am at work.

I should probably doing something productive.

One month of co-op left, then it's back to school (and back to the job-hunt, for another internship over the winter term). Luckily, my earnings have been pretty much tax-free thus far; my tuition also hasn't gone up significantly.

Getting ready to go to Tiger Land for 21 Days. In case no one knows, Tiger Land is the JRTC (Joint Readiness Training Center) and my unit will be going against our Airborne Counter Parts.

I made my first two pottery pieces with pulled handles over the weekend. They are both small pitchers. The handle fell off of one of them yesterday though so I had to repair it. It's a pain to get the handle to dry out at the same pace as the main part of the piece and if they dry at different speeds they can fall off. I guess I'll just hope for the best with it.

Good news:
Working for Sentara Medical Group as a courier, job is bitchin, I love it and it's got great pay. Great work schedual too :)

Bad news:
My dog, Pepper, is dying. About 2 weeks ago, discovered a tumor in her right anal gland. She's going in for surgery tomorrow, but they say the tumor will grow back (she has small tumors in her mammary glands, had them for a while but they were benign [sp?], supposedly if the main tumor doesn't grow back, one might from one of these now.)  They give her 6-12 months to live after. I surmise she'll live close to the 12 months if thats the life expectancy, cause she's as healthy as can be otherwise (Stellar bloodwork they said), I'm gunna miss her =\

I'm sorry. =( Animals have a way of wrapping themselves around your heart don't they?

Sorry to hear about your pet... Sad to loose a pet or any thing that is close to you.

I guess on the bright side you'll be ready for it when it happens. But still, it sucks.
All right, I’ve been thinking, when life gives you lemons, don’t make lemonade! Make life take the lemons back! Get mad! I don’t want your damn lemons! What am I supposed to do with these? Demand to see life’s manager! Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons! Do you know who I am? I’m the man whose gonna burn your house down – with the lemons! I'm gonna get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!

I leave for basic training on the 31st. All of my friends have already left or are leaving shortly for college. I'm not working at the moment. I am bored out of my mind.

Sorry to hear about the dog Sandru.

I've been sitting here recovering from a hernia repair done a week ago.  Watching many movies, finally got around to watching Gilliam's Brazil and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Salt?
BOOM!
