I had to get dressed just to go buy milk. Luckily the shop is like 100 yards away.


( 10 miles in Blob speak ).



The last time I didn't bother getting dressed and was arrested for " pretty decent exposure " :zydar:

I'll have you know I was walking 3km every day last Winter! :blob:
Almost back to walking weather again now, but Summer has lingered too long.

Woke up on the couch at 9am, two hours later I haven't moved. Feels good. Starting this week's Agents of Shield and then I'll be all caught up on the DVR.

Nice.


I spent all shift yesterday sifting through 24+ hours of camera footage looking for the source of some graffiti found in the elevator of one of our buildings. Found nothing.

Came in this morning and there was the tag again. It's the old school Killroy Was Here doodle. First time was small. This time... it's an entire elevator door. Fucking people...
I just don't understand what they were trying to achieve with any part of the song, either individually or as a whole. You know what? It's the Platypus of Dream Theater songs. That bill doesn't go with that tail, or that strange little furry body, or those webbed feet, and oh god why does it have venomous spurs!? And then you find out it lays eggs too. The difference is that the Platypus is somehow functional despite being a crazy mishmash or leftover animal pieces

You know, facebook is a blessing and curse... I know only the best of people mainly end up there; I see friends of mine from high school and college in houses, doing so well, having secure jobs, so much so that one of them can be a stay at home parent... and here my wife and I are, paying rent at an apartment, working our asses off, and owe the government money.

It's times like this I think why can't I get a break... I feel like the world is out to get me... the world is teasing me and just builds me up just to knock me down...

Someone earlier says I may be suffering from depression and that's how i feel right now...

Yeah I'm venting I don't care

People often only present the best of themselves on sites like that, so they may not be all peachy either, even if things look great on the outside. Don't let life overwhelm you, and I hope things turn around for you soon. You never know what's around the corner (hopefully not a truck). :tup


I kept getting woken up this morning by the workers directly across the street very loudly blasting the most god awful dancey pop music on the radio. I don't know what it was, but it was just the most repetitive shit I've ever heard, and it was keeping me awake, and when I did manage to fall asleep, the music was so loud that I was dreaming about trying to find the source of the music and shut it off so I could put on my own music. :lol

Some are probably doing well.  But I guarantee you some are not and just put up a nice storefront, I mean facebook.

here my wife and I are, paying rent at an apartment, working our asses off, and owe the government money.  I don't know if it is fed (bad), state (worse) or local (worst), but try to ask for a hardship payment plan.  Although considering the time of year, I'm guessing it is more just the pain of having to pay taxes after filling out your 1040.

Prioritize that government payoff.  Govt. is the worst.  You want to talk about financial predators.

Sorry to hear.  But you have a place to live, a wife and a job.  I don't know your situation, and won't ask, but I'll supply a serious "hope things get better" even though I know it can feel hollow.  As somebody that started life living on the edge, just know that it is heartfelt.
I wish death upon Mitch McConnell and Pat Robertson in comment sections all the time. I'll admit that I'd be thrilled if either one of them died of a stroke tonight.

I appreciate it. I wasn't necessarily looking for sympathy, I was just venting. I hope it gets better. It always seems that when we start getting a hold of things something like this happens.

I used to think like that. I used to sit and wonder why the honest people that do what they're supposed to, being good little citizens, are the ones that get screwed. I was depressed, miserable, and forgetting who I was. My anxiety was out of control. It still is but I've figured out a way to handle it...most of the time. I remember just being this completely unhappy waste of space where desperation was the flavor of the week and regret was lurking at every turn. One morning and woke up and I tried something different and since then I realized I was in control the whole time. The bad demons inside me were working their hardest to bring me down and were succeeding. That morning, I let the good demons take over.

That's a good idea. They give you instructions on how to connect GNS3 to hard equipment. If you need help with that, let me know.
