I've been trying to keep up with mowing/maintaining 15 acres + babysit my nephew's 9 month old son 30-40 hrs. a week. My online time consists of making sure the computer is updated and running ok, and checking messages. I haven't had much time/energy for anything else.

Very Linda Hamilton/Terminator 2. =)
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!

Leave for training tomorrow. May or may not be able to post some this December. If not, happy holidays.

Take care everyone.

Back from 17 days of JRTC (Joint Readiness Training Center).... It was fun, a greener version of Iraq with all the thrills of heat exhaustion. poisonous snakes and young NCos who don't know shit.


And me, kicking back with my Spider-Man shit and Kukri...

Our landlord is finally fixing things around the house. To give you an idea of how bad it was... I'll cut and paste what my boyfriend wrote:

What have we found so far (this is not a complete list).

* The wall sockets in our house are 50 years old and need to be replaced.

* Our stove has had a gas leak the whole time we've been here, and it is the handyman's recommendation that we don't use the stove again as it is dangerous. He is going to recommend to the landlord that we get a replacement, and should have had one a long time ago.

* When finally cleaning off our roof, we discovered full tree branches and dead birds rotting up there for who knows how long.

* With the dishwasher they cheaply installed and never finished, they didn't seal any holes in the floor like they should have, so there was a direct route from outside into the house for our ant problem.

* The ceiling fan has been shaking as badly as it has for so long as it was held together with nothing more than a few strips of electrical tape. The tape was so old that it was brittle and turning into powder, which started to settle inside the base of the lamp. What was left of the tape... well, I wouldn't exactly call it "tape" anymore at this point.

We haven't even covered half of the repairs from our letter yet. I can't wait to address the rest of these issues, and see what other "treasures" we'll uncover.

My landlord turns a shade paler every time I see him and something else is brought up. At least he's using the money he makes from our rent towards a charitable cause this past week.

I believe the appropriate term for this current chain of events is "LOL".

So it's bad at our place. However it's getting better and that's good. To build upon the letter.

When our wall sockets were installed... Sputnik was launched.

25 big bags of garbage was taken off our roof. The house is noticeably cooler.

Sparks fly out when we use some of the sockets. This and our 8 month gas leak make for a lovely combination. I wonder why SDG&E didn't notice this.

Our landlord is a quasi club kid and just wants to party. It's our determination he got this place as a form of extra money. Our neighbor said that he's trying to get rid of it but nobody wants to buy the property. Of course not! Not when it looks as junky as it does. So this is why he's not spending money on the place. In his mind money spent is money lost. My letter to him with a casual mention of my doctor visits seem to have spurred him on.

Yet with all this I am happy. I'm happy a cheap lazy useless man child is being forced to do something. We're making him miserable legally and taking money he was counting on. He's really lucky we didn't contact the fire department. There's a huge fine for fire hazards. Since we're near the historical buildings (The Birthplace of California) I'm sure they wouldn't like a fire hazard.

It's a bit sad because this place was our treat to ourselves. I would be closer to work and my boyfriend would be closer to some of the shooting locations. Oh well... at least it allowed us to have our dog. If we didn't get the place she would have been put to sleep. That makes it worth it.

this little guy is what has been keeping me smiling.

Doomsie, if you lived a little closer, I could fix all but your gas leak for ya.:)

SweetPea, I'm sorry to hear about your friend. I just had a childhood friend(neighbor) contact me after 20 yrs. and when I asked about her brothers and sister, all but one have died.:( It's been a rough week for everyone. I'm just glad I had this little guy to occupy me.

Awe, in't he cute  :nice:

Me, I'm jsut chilling, back from 4th week of military. We got our rexes thursday afetr a 2-nighter in the field. Hardly any sleep then between guard-duty and the artillery attacks and such. I'm fucking proud, though. Soon's I find my cable for my camera I'll upload a couple pictures :)

My PC is being ornery. Seems my MB is dieing, so ordered a enw one, should be here within 2 weeks (backorder), and go quite well with my 2GB RAM and Geforce 8800GX I got yesterday. 4GB ram total then, and another 750 gigs of HDD spae as well. Fun playing Bioshock on this killer system ^^

Not much else, really, military = timethief big-time. Getting in shape, making good friends and the likes :)
