and after 3 days, he is risen!

If you are paying $20 for a haircut, I imagine people assume you did it yourself anyway.

Pocket change cost me my first and only black girlfriend.   It was in the middle of a roaring poker boom and I was flush in ways most men don't even bother dreaming of. Money, it was like dirt to me

i choose to believe that clint has been going balls deep on the reg in BC and is just too embarrassed to post about it here because of all the razzing he got on her account.

This is all true.

 

Well, the exact opposite of it.

 

I had Friday off to work on poor peoples houses(still nicer houses than shakes I assume).

 

One of the houses they disconnected the gas oven and somehow the hooking it back up fell to me and now I'm terrified I'm going to hear about a house explosion on the news and will have to actually disappear for awhile. I used Teflon tape and everything but still.

 

I was supposed to ride with my roommate up to Minneapolis for weekend shenanigans Friday but he wound up having to go close to MN for work that day and just went up on his own. Just so happened that BC was going up to MPLS Saturday with her sister and neice so I just rode up with them. Went to the casino with a buddy Friday night and ended up losing my ass in blackjack since I didn't have any other plans (well, I could have hung out with BC but chose casino instead)

 

Once I got up to MPLS went to the racetrack with my friends and we placed some bets and played blackjack for awhile. Tons of super attractive girls dressed in their summer best. Was pretty cool. Won enough to cover my tab basically.

 

After that went to our other friends place for their anniversary/cinco de mayo party. Had a lot of fun.

 

Sunday was drive home and a call from my brother saying we're building a dog house for my dogs so come over when you get home. So that's what I did.

 

Been feeling very melancholy the past few days. Probably because my $4 investment in DogeCoin isn't doing all that well.

 

I'm sorry I've been gone.

 

Frau, congrats.

So who had "Napa got a life" in the Where Is Napa pool?

 

 

so tilty are you really gonna go for that job or wat?

 

Yes. Told the boss on Monday that I'm in. She basically said good thing because the Senior Director (her boss, would be my boss if I get he promotion) told her that if I didn't apply for it that it could hurt my chances of being offered positions in the future. So dumb but he's of the old school where if you turn down a promotion to one location they essentially black ball you for future opportunities down the road. After I pressed the issue with her she said that she thinks mostly it was because he wanted me for the position. We will see.

Mothers Day on Sunday. Don't forget guys.

 

Edit: Saturday for our Mexican friends.

Funny story: We always had gas stoves when I was growing up, and anytime my dad was working on the kitchen or the stove and reconnected the gas, he would check for leaks by lighting a match. Apparently, this was an old-school trick that he learned from an appliance repair guy. Coupled with the fact that I always rode everywhere in the front seat, on top of the middle arm rest when driving with my parents and lived to tell about, is more than enough proof for me that there is a God.

If there truly is a god they'll take out more cash than that!

 

Tilt may have explained this before, but what happened to usury laws? I always thought the highest interest legally chargeable was 29.99%

 

Nope. In fact there is a law specific to members of the military and it allows interest up to 36%. I don't know the real answer to your question about usury laws but my belief is that it is because we are licensed differently than banks, credit card companies and the like. The laws we operate under in CA allow a FEE of up to $17.50 per $100 borrowed. We do not charge interest. Whether the loan is for 5 days or 35 days the customer pays the same fee, nor do we charge late fees. Federal TILA laws require that the fee is shown as an Annual Percentage Rate so we do and then all the anti's scream at the top of their lungs about the outrageous interest rates we charge....even though we do not charge interest in the same way as those that they compare us too.

So here I was sitting just a few short hours ago. Mindin me own bidness. Researching which late model nissan vsix blocks would fit in/hold up to big boost in a newly acquired z car....eighty six model....pristine including the pac man digital dash. Yeah, Im collecting all the rigs I couldnt have when I was a youngin. Shoot me. Anyhoo, I did something that I very seldom ever ever ever do. I answered the phone without paying attention to who it was....

 

 

 

 

 

"Yeah"

 

 

 

"Beans?"

 

 

 

"Ohhhhh.....uh....yeah?"

 

 

 

 

"HeyImsupposedtotakethekidsovertoyadayadayadaforayadayadayadaandIgotcalledintoworkcausetheydonthaveanyoneelsetodo....."

 

 

 

 

"Hello?"

 

 

 

"DontpullthatIcanthearyoucrapIreallyneedyoutotakethekids....."

 

 

 

 

"Please leave your number at the......"

 

 

 

 

"BEANS! IknowyouknowwhothisisandIknowyouarereallyonthephone....."

 

 

 

 

"I dont have time to babysit....really....Im in the middle of a tremendously stressful situation that....."

 

 

 

 

"CRAP! I know youre just sitting at the computer cause my sister told me...."

 

 

 

 

(Beans looks up to find wife staring through the office door)

 

 

 

 

"....you just got back from Shreveport with an old car and...."

 

 

 

 

(Beans throws mean look toward wife)

 

 

 

 

"Where to the critter need to be and what time....(looks at bag again).... do they need to be there?"

 

 

 

 

"Ohthankyouthankyouthankyoutheyhavegymtonightandafewoftheirfriendswanttogotosoandsoafterwardanditsjustafewofthemand...."

 

 

 

 

"Ill be over in an hour"

 

 

 

 

"Ohyourethe...."

 

 

 

 

(click)

 

 

 

 

"GODDAMMIT!"

 

 

 

 

Over the years Ive served many purposes. Husband. Father. Bidnez man. Pilot for beer. The worst of all is babysitter. I mean, I had to deal with my own for...shit....forever now. Cant get rid of him. Why should I have to deal with someone elses mistakes? Im no good at it.... (hand raised)....be the first to admit it. Somehow mine turned out to be decent after all the superintendants, teachers, cops, detectives, and others in authority told me otherwise would happen. Hey, miracles happen. Dont ask me how or why. He turned out sharp as a tack. No permanent record I know of. Maybe he payed attention. Nah.... Im goin with pure de-o luck

 

 

 

 

The last time I had similar duty it didnt go very well. I figured it would be the last time....ever.... I would be asked to be the responsible adult for anyone, let alone kids in my extended family. The incident at the golden corral where I put a fifty dollar reward to the one who could come back with the craziest mixture of food cinched it...or so I thought. The food fight right before being asked to leave was just icing on the chocolate covered fried chicken in the patrons lap at the next table was an "extreeeaddedbonus" as Jed Clampett used to say...

 

 

 

 

 

So imagine my surprise that I was again being asked to put someone elses offspring in harms way. I did what any sane person in my situation would do. I mixed another drink. Strong

 

 

 

 

 

"Beans.... all you have to do is pick them up at her place, take them to the gymnastics thing, wait for a while, then take them to eat"

 

 

 

 

"And you cant bec......"

 

 

 

 

"You have better temperament for....."

 

 

 

 

"Uh....HEY!.... (shows glass full of straight crown).... Im winding down from dealing with traffic and...."

 

 

 

 

"Get real.... you drove to get a car and gambled all night then drove home....drinking all the way.....you dont have a stressed bone in your bo....oops"

 

 

 

 

"Uh...yes I do"

 

 

 

 

So after the bribery job, I got in the car and motored over to pick up the cargo. Imagine my surprise when a flock of teenage girls surrounded the vehicle....

 

 

 

 

 

 

...to be continued

 

 

 

 

 

The screen is quite blurred and I may have to sit down awhile. shit I am sitting. of Ill stand up.shit

man, I've had a cold all week so last night I decided I should go to bed early and try to knock it out once and for all, so I took a healthy dose of nyquil around 7:30. got in the bed at about 8... then stared at the ceiling till at least 11. after that I was in an out of sleep, waking up at least every hour until I had to be up. never had nyquil do that before. it's definitely given me hangovers, like made me feel loopy the next day, but it always put me to sleep at least. shit's weird.

 

but anyways, since I slept even worse than normal, if that was even possible, I'm beyond tired today. even more delirious than normal and even pretty nausiated off and on. I think I'm gonna have to have this sleep study whether I can afford it or not. either that or get on disability.

If you can get on disability, definitely do it. I think almost everyone in this thread should honestly quit their jobs, scam their way onto the gov't tit, and then find some girl with a career and no self esteem. I know a guy who has that exact setup. He is enormously fat, and has some BS leg problem, and is shacked up with some obese lady lawyer. All he does is play the drums and drink all day.i

He also works as a magician at for private parties, and I imagine that that income is not reported. Even I am a little jealous of that lifestyle.
