The Vaguely Interesting Rants of a Monster.

What a Day (and Night.)

Had a day off from work yesterday.  No OT this time.  So I slept in, rode my bike out to my mother house, mowed the lawn and mounted an American Flag on her porch.  Had a decent dinner of baked chicken and something called Fennel?  Its was a starchy but ok.

 It was about 10:45pm when I rode my bicycle home.  It was somewhat dark, but I was at a lit crossway.  I nearly got creamed by a pickup truck driver.  I yelled out “Watchit Fucker!”  He responded by yelling that I need to put lights on my bicycle.  I was pissed, but in retrospect, he was right and I should’ve been more careful.  Sorry.

 So I went grocery shopping after work, picked up the food stuffs.  Filled my gas tank and bought an overpriced bottle of Tylenol.  Slept until 7am today.

Got up, got 5 computers out of storage.  Striped and piled about 7 computers in my car.  Took them to the dump.  Felt good to reduce the trash load.  Got my oil changed too. 

 About 10 minutes ago, my mother came to my desk and told me that they towed her car.  I offered to let her borrow mine so she can get home.  She’s going to call Mark, my oldest cousin.  Its going to cost her $120 dollars to get her car out of stock. 

 Shit rolls down hill.


The Good, The Bad and The Ulgy.

Some good finally.  I’m able to pay my bills without having to borrow from my Credit card. 
This means that I can start shaving off the debt and getting ready for saving up for a new car next year.   Call me weird, but I cleaned up my living room and now I have carpet.  The other day, I mopped my Kitchen floor and its no longer sticky/yucky.   

The Bad?  I’m fighting fatigue again.  The stupid job PTS dealie is wearing me out.  So I’m eating crap and gaining weight to keep up.  This isn’t good.  Time to turn this shit around. 

The Ugly?  I’m falling behind in my expectations with PC Santa.  I’m also slowly loosing my mind.   Every day, I get up and plan my day, but I’m damn lucky if I get up in time for work.  Getting to work really sucks because there are rarely enough desks to log in.  And I’m not sure if I’m even doing a good job. 

 Meanwhile, I’m watching my favorite forum, The liberal forum implode since it changed owners.   This Thread should prove quite entertaining.  Warning foul language. 

Damn Summer Colds.

Welp, I’m sick with a stoopid cold.  Sore throat, iritable, snotty.  Cest La Vie.

Anyway, Too much drama at the old Liberal Forum.  Its the not the same anymore.  I’ve been posting there since 2004.  They recently changed owners.  The new owner is nuttier than a snickers bar.  He’s got websites concerning Israeli polititians and his efforts to stalk them.  Thankfully, Not_Prince_Hamlet set up a new forum called “On The Left.”

Working a lot of OT at work.  Ugh.  Need the money to get out of debt and help mom with her bills.  Things at work are stresfful, but marginally bearable.

On a plus note, that messy radiator patch is holding.  My car is no longer leaking and I’m able to drive without my engine overheating.  Now if I could just do something about the mess…

Welcome to the Blog of me.  I hope you find it interesting, but if not, oh well.

Yesterday was a rough day for me.  After driving home from work, my car started overheating badly.  So I pulled over twice to let it cool down.  I slept and woke up about 5 hours later and started the long bicycle ride out to get my chores done.  Returned stupid movie to Blockbuster, and bought a repair kit for my leaky radiator. 

Got home, was sick as a dog.  It was 95 degrees out with air quality warning.  I rode about 4 miles in that weather.  So I got a case of heat exhaustion.  Cooled off and called in stupid. 

 Waited a few hours for it to cool off outside.   The radiator kit was an alcholol swab, a piece of fine grain sandpaper, a flimsy sheet of fiberglass and the epoxy mix.  Despite my clumsy efforts, I was able to actually patch the crack in the radiator.  It now holds water without leaking. 

 I hope it will hold until I can replace the radiator.
