Well, there is bad news. I went to go get my remote swapped out at the payment center and I saw a big wet spot under my car. I started it up and started driving and I saw the little light start to flash again. My fluid is running low. I limped it to the payment center; I had to shut off the car a couple of times so it wouldnโ€™t over heat. Luckily today was a cool day and most of the driving was at highway speeds.

I saw that this thing pissing out radiator fluid when I parked it. I changed out my remote, put in a bunch of fluid and limped it over to Midas. I am hoping that the water pump is not bad on it. Hopefully it is just a hose. It is going to cost me at least $20 just for them to look at it to see what is wrong. After I dropped off the car I walked home and tried to figure out how the hell I am going to pay to get the fucking thing fixed.

I have been relaxing today, it has been a cool day and the air in the apartment has cooled down a lot. I ate some left over pasta on rice and I am going to have to figure out my meals for the rest of the check, and possibly into next check. Just when I think I am getting caught up on things shit like this happens and pushes me back. I always seem to have trouble this time of year. It really sucks because it makes buying xmas presents a really big drag.

I am sooo fucking tired right now.

I am working another one of those stupid over night shifts. I didn’t sleep well at all today and in fact I spent a few hours of it going to Chasie’s house and getting the bed and shit. So now I do have a bed, but it cost a lot to go get it. And today it seemed like people in BMWs had it in for me because they were being complete assholes all day today cutting me off in the Uhaul and in my car. Chasie’s brother helped me get the bed in the apartment and it barely fit in my room with the boxes and stuff. I am going to have to reduce a bunch and create more room. I also decided I want the bed arranged differently than where it is now so I am going to have to work on that part too.

After I dropped her brother off I headed to Target to get some sheets and then got a burrito to go from Chipotle. I also got some chips and salsa and guac. Whilst standing in line there were a couple of cops right behind me. I am hoping that they didn’t smell the pot that Chasie and her brother were smoking earlier when I was in the house with them. They didn’t’ say anything, I probably smelled more like sweat than anything at that point. When I ate my food, somehow a chip got chewed wrong and it was in the back of my mouth and I couldn’t get it out of where it was and it ended up in my throat. It was lodged there and I could feel it poking, it hurt a lot and I ended up having to drink a lot of water to get it soft enough to swallow. My throat still hurts from where it was poking. That made me lose my appetite so I put the rest of the burrito in the fridge for later.

Yesterday (Friday) I took Chasie to Chilli’s and treated her to dinner and got her drunk as a going away party thing. We talked about her moving and what she wants to do and stuff. She wants to start a sticker company and I agreed to host it for her.

This last week has been pretty stressful. I have been working and sleeping and slowly working on my special projects I have at the house.

http://www.esmark.net tells where all the samples are from for Big Audio Dynamite!! I found it again!

The other day I decided to burn Big Audio Dynamite. I can not begin to tell you how much I love this band. I will not go into that much detail as to why this band makes my panties soooooo wet, because I discussed it here:, and here:, however, lets just say that they do things to me and they were so ahead of thier time. They made this stuff in the 80’s.

As you know I am a Dennis Kucinich supporter and recently ABC had sponsored a debate, and of course they snubbed Dennis again by not asking him many questions because corporate America is afraid of him, but he won their online poll of who they thought won the debate. When they got wind of this, they hid that poll and created a new one and worded it different thinking it would create a different outcome. Again Dennis won by a landslide. They also cropped him out of a picture however the caption had him listed as being in the picture. Fucking bullshit. I am pissed off at them for not giving him equal representation just because he is a “minor candidate”. It is like they are forcing people to not know about him by hiding him, especially when he sweeps their polls the way they did. On their comments section people were calling ABC on it and also on the fact that Dennis didn’t get his fair speaking time on the debate. Those comments were being systematically deleted as well. That is so wrong for them to do something like that. The Dennis team sent a letter to ABC asking them about it and of course they have not responded to it. Fucking shit bastards.

Oh, so I didn’t finish the black bean burger and fries from Chilli’s so I had them as leftovers later that night, and the very last fry I ate was a small chunk of a fry and it went down the wrong pipe. I was having a hard time coughing it up and I was starting to cough up clear thick flem.

Tonight Kim has been drunk calling me… I have been answering the phone and talking to her. Twice she has hung up on me for no apparent reason. I think I am going to stop answering the phone now. I guess she just got out of jail again. She didn’t pay the fines that “she didn’t know about”, so they locked her up again. At least she entertained me for a while, keeping me awake.

I know I haven’t written in a long time. I am sorry, I have been busy, and with the way my work schedule normally is, I don’t get much time there either.

I got in a small accident a couple of weeks ago. I caused a bit of damage to the other guy’s bumper and the front of my bumper and my light and hood. There was an ambulance going through the light and I didn’t stop fast enough and I bumped into him. The cop wasn’t going to cite me but the guy insisted and so he fucked me out of $150. I have the choice of either watching a video or getting 4 points against me. I think I am going to watch the video. So I am fucked that way.

Last week I had an issue at work. Seems that the powers that be got three letters bad mouthing me, saying I was a jerk on the phone and that kind of stuff, they were going to give me an official verbal write up over the whole thing, and I am not like that at all on the phone, so I got a bunch of people at work to write letters saying how helpful I am on the phone and stuff and prepared myself to fight this stupid bullshit. I came in on Monday fully expecting to be written up for doing my job and it ended up being that two of the letters they received was from the same person using two different names. Fucking cunt. She was out to get me. Now I have to really watch my pints and quarts because of this, I am under the radar, and if I get another one I am going to get written up for sure and be moved to an earlier schedule “so they can watch me”. Fucking bullshit. I have been here for almost 5 years and two of those as a lead, the powers that be should know by know how I am on the phone and have my back when it comes to this. Way to take care of your fucking employees.

Carol finally moved out of the place she was staying at and moved to Ocalla. I won’t be seeing much of her anymore because she lives so far away, only when I decide to go up and see her or when she is in town.

I have taken a bunch of pictures, I will upload them soon, just been lazy at home. Oh, speaking of, the week before the accident Carol and I went to The Pier to take pictures and hang out and on the way back to the car I accidentally left my camera on the trolley. When I realised it and went back, the camera wasn’t there anymore. I was fucking pissed. $500 gone. Luckily I still had my Stylus 600 as a back up, but still. I am still pissed over it.

And just on the 28th I used my debit card to pay for Chinese, and that was the last time I saw that. I couldn’t find it so I ended up having to order a new one. So now I have to remember who I have auto pay through and get the number changed on all that bullshit. Netflix has already sent me a notice saying that the card didn’t process, and I wont get a new one until Thurs, so they have to wait until I get a new card.

When it rains it pours, and it is pouring hard for me right now.

CAN’T MOVE DUH TRUCK, BOSS

A redneck farm hand radios back to his boss, the farm
manager:

“Boss, I got a big problem here. I hit a pig with the pickup. The pig’s
o.k., but he’s stuck in the bull bar at the front of my pickup and is
wriggling and squealing so much I can’t get him out.”

The manager says, “OK, there’s a 30/30 behind the seat, take it out and
shoot the pig in the head and you’ll be able to remove him.”

Five minutes later the farm hand calls back.

“I did as you said, Boss. Took the 30/30 and shot the pig in the head
and removed him from the bull-bars. No problem there, but I still can’t
go on.”

“Now what’s the problem?” raged the manager.

“Well Boss, it’s his motor bike. The flashing red and blue lights is
stuck under the right front wheel and …Boss, Boss, BOSS. You still there Boss?”

I woke up too late to go to the parade. I was really disappointed. Last night was another one of those nights were I was wide awake until after four am and I had to force myself to calm down and fall asleep.

Today the History Channel was showing programs on the life of MLK Jr, and so I watched them as a way of celebrating his life and what he did for the citizens of the US.

I am trying to decide what I should do on the 22 or 23 to celebrate me being in Fl for five years. I was thinking about going to the Ringside Cafe, I wonder who is playing…

So I was hungry for some chow mien tonight so I decided to go to the Panda Express tonight. Big mistake. I ordered two orders of veggie spring rolls and an order of chow mien and an order of fried rice for my friend who wanted Chinese too. I wanted the rice as a side order so it wouldn’t get mixed with mine. This was at 9:15pm that I placed the order and they close at 10 pm. The order taker person told me that they had no more veggie rolls because their kitchen closes at 9, not because they are physically out of them, but because their kitchen closes at 9. I pointed out but you are open until ten. so anyway, they tried to substitute something and I said well I am vegetarian and there is nothing else I can eat, so I want the veggie rolls I ordered, they said well we have vegetables, and I said that they are cooked in chicken stock, and she looked at me like oh really? and said something to the effect, and I said, yes, your website states that they are, so the help doesn’t even know what the menu is. So I scummed to only having one order of veggie rolls, and on top of that they fucking mixed the fried rice with everything else so I ended up picking out rice from my chow mien and the chow mien was all tough and chewy and the rolls were greasy and cold and gross. I know I can’t expect much for fast food, bur fuck, it only takes two minutes to fry veggie rolls, so I don’t know what the fucking problem is. Anyway…. the receipt I got had a survey on it, so I immediately filled it out and expressed my complaint to them:

I went to the drive through at 9:15. I ordered two orders of veggie rolls, an order of chow mien and an order of fried rice for my coworker. When I pulled up I was told that they only have one order of veggie rolls because the kitchen is closed. The hours of operation at this locatoin is until 10pm. I pointed that out and they said that the kitchen closes at 9 pm. They offered me a subisitute, but there is nothing else on the menu I can eat since I am a vegetarian and you use chicken stock for everything including the vegetable items… They refused to make me a new order of rolls, and just took the fried rice and put it in with the order to make it a two item entree.

I have worked in the restaurant business for 11 years as a chef, and a lot of those in a management position. If a customer came in my door at one minute to close every item was available to my customers unless I was physically out of the product. if this meant restarting the fryer or the broiler or whatever I always did it. It is not good practice to close your kitchen before your store actually closes and refuse to offer items as that excuse. This also affects food quality as I experienced with tonight’s “meal”. The chow mien was hard and chewy and the vegetable rolls were cold and greasy. I know you are fast food and I should expect poor quality ingredients, but I would hate to taste the quality of your product one minute before ten when the food has been sitting under heat lamps and in steam tables for an hour or more.

Also although I requested that the rice be separate from the rest of the items (I do not eat eggs) everything ended up in the same container anyway. I was very disappointed with tonight’s experience, and I usually give fast food the benefit of the doubt since they can not be held to the same high standards of quality that I expected and was expected to adhere to at the restaurants I worked at.

So I was told that I would get a reply to my email within 72 hours, and I just got a reply back…

Thank you for taking the time to contact us regarding your experience at the Panda Express in Clearwater, FL. Please accept our sincerest apology for the dissatisfaction that you received during your recent visit. In regards to your question we did want to inform you that the spring rolls contain chicken fat, chicken powder and chicken flavoring as well as the chow mien. We have forwarded your requests for vegetarian dishes but at this time Panda express does not offer vegetarian dishes.

We appreciate the opportunity you have given Panda Restaurant Group, Inc. to focus on the situation you encountered. This ultimately helps us to strengthen our food quality and guest services. Your comments have been forwarded to the General Managers, Area Manager, and Regional Director of Operations for their information and review. Please feel confident they will look into this matter and take any necessary corrective actions.

Again, we appreciate your taking the time to contact us. With input from valuable guests like you, we are able to address situations that might otherwise go unnoticed. We value you as a guest and hope that you will give us the opportunity to better serve you in the very near future.

Sincerely,

So now I am really disgusted. How can they take things that can be vegetarian and add meat byproducts to it? I know that chicken byproducts adds flavor to things, but really, why not vegetable stock or something similar? Mushroom powder?

If you feel so inclined send Panda Express a comment and tell them to let their vegetarian items go vegan!

Well, it looks like the ringside’s webpage is down again. Darned shame.

How many of you have a back up NIC in your car? Raise your hands!

Ok, now the ones that raised your hands… How many of you have an ISA and PCI card in your car?

That is what I thought…

So I determined that my router is bad. I knew it was bad when I was getting packet loss to the router but I wanted to rule out anything going on with the internet connection. When I determined that the connection it’s self was good I knew it was a bad router. This will be the third router I have gone through in a year, so I decided to buy a different brand of router (gasp!) and I also bought a new battery back up because the only thing I could think of that is killing the router is the backup isn’t doing it’s job anymore. The back up is something like 6 years old so it has spent it’s life well. I bought a ZyXel wireless, it has a good simple ui and the bios upgrade was smooth. I got the ZyXel configured in about ten minutes including all my port forwarding. Tonight I am going to get the battery back up hooked up. I got a APC Back-UPS Pro 1100VA It is an older model but it was only $120 so that is all I need.

So as I mentioned last night I was seriously contimplating reverting back to the SK2. Which I did. However at the same time to keep the use of the three and keeping that investment from going to waste I decided to get another line and putting the three on that. I will use that for Crazy computing and it is only going to cost me an additional $30 a month. So I am happy now. Oh, and the geek in me now carries around two sidekicks so now I snort. haha! Oh – and now that I am using teh SK2, Mary’s ringtone is My Humps again! yay!!!

On the way to work people were driving so crazy. They were in such a hurry to get home that they didn’t care if they were cutting people off or anything. Mother fuckers – enjoy your stupid three day holiday. I will be making double time and a half (aprox. $360) that day so fuck you! hahahaha!!!!!!1111110ne0ne0ne0netwotwotwo!!!

Anyway… When I got to work today I was locked out of g-mail because of overuse or whatever. too many connections or usage or something. So I sent in an email to reenable. It was done within the hour. The thing is – if they don’t want you to use multiple sessions then they should rewrite the script to not allow that to happen. I have g-mail open in a browser at home on both computers, then at work, then I also have my sk checking along with thunderbird and then the two open google talk clients – soo. Ya.

Work has been pretty stedy thus far. Typical pre three day weekend bs and stuff. I am watfhing the path of Enersto and it looks like it is heading straight for DC and I hope it decides to sit right on top of DC and cause damage to the west wing and flood the white house right out. I hope that Earth Mother gets her revenge on shrub for being such a knob for not adiquately preparing for Katrina. Fucking piece of shit.

Today has been the day of escelations.

I have taken at least seven escelatoins that my tired brain can remember. I have probably really have taken more like 10 or 15.

And on top of that I went to Carrot Juice around eigthtish, and I was getting a couple of file not found errors. So I was like shit, did I accidently delete files? I ftp to the sites and notice that there are fewer files there than I remember, I go to where I see it is reporting the missing files and I realise that I need to reupload the files, so I download the new version of nuke and I decide to go to Who gives A Crap and that was giving me errors as well, so fuck, I downloaded wordpress too, and I fucking went to lunch. This is all I need, my fucking ass is fucked because of the escelations I have taken and then I am double fucked by two black studs over the fact that my sites have been fucked too, I can’t figure out why they aer fuckedd either because they wre working before I went to work. Bah. So I get back to lunch and Carrot Juice is now acting like I can’t even get to it anymore, saying I don’t have access, same with who gives a crap, and I am getting a password error on ftp as well. I am like shit shit shit. what the fuck is going on? Now I am thinking that my account has been compromised and someone has completely deleted my account.

So I go to surpass, look in the forums and see if someone else is complaining about it, no, so I open up a ticket and advise them of the situation, ask them to restore at least the basic account and let me know of the new password if I need it, I am fucking feeling really fucked right now. This is not good, with the continuing escelations I am getting and not being able to take care of my shit and thinking about all the work I have to do to the sites and shit. I got an email about thirty minutes later from Surpass, for some reason the server wasn’t reading the file structure of the attached drives, adn a reboot fixed it.

Yay! Such a fucking relief! And everything was there and back in order.

So in two hours I am going to be throwing back a couple of Jim Bem and cokes and shit. I need it after that fucking scare and the night I have been having on the phone.

Fuck.

So yesterday I bought another 300 gig sata seagate drive, and a four port sata raid card, found a good deal on an adaptec. I have less than 10 gigs left on my 600 gig striped drives. That will make almost a tera just for the sata drives, not including the 200 and 120 gigs already in \master.

I need to decide wether to buy another board or to buy memory that is compatible for the board I have now.

Anyway, that is my day from hell. I need alcohol, and I need sex. I need both at the same time too.

My Sidekick is no more. It tells me it has hardware problems and to call. I have tried a warm and cold reset and removing and adding the sim card with no luck. It is gone, dead, deceased. I need to call T-mobile to get a replacement. I will get a refurb which i am not going to be happy with, but I don’t want to pay $300 for a new one and the rumorville is the SK3 will be released soon, so I don’t want to spend then spend again in a few months.

The other day, I came home and Kim was indeed drunk, so I played it cool and talked to her and played with her, then the next day I told her about how I felt about her not communicating things with me and that I didn’t feel like she was much of a friend to me and stuff. She seemed to understand and then we talked a while about her trip and stuff. Hopefully things will work out more and I will not feel like an ass. I told her how I felt and stuff, and ya, we will see.

In other news things are still going swimmingly with Mary. I will get to see her live and in action hopefully on Thursday. ๐Ÿ™‚ I can not wait to see her personality as we chat and talk on the phone. I want to watch her as I make her laugh and smile and embaress her.

As the sun breaks, above the ground,
An old man stands on the hill.
As the ground warms, to the first rays of light
A birdsong shatters the still.

His eyes are ablaze,
See the madman in his gaze.

Fly, on your way, like an eagle,
Fly as high as the sun,
On your way, like an eagle,
Fly and touch the sun.

Now the crowd breaks and a young boy appears
Looks the old man in the eye
As he spreads his wings and shouts at the crowd
In the name of God my father I fly

His eyes seem so glazed
As he flies on the wings of a dream.
Now he knows his father betrayed
Now his wings turn to ashes to ashes his grave.

Fly, on your way, like an eagle,
Fly as high as the sun,
On your way, like an eagle,
Fly as high as the sun.

Fucking shit! Gallery is not allowing me to create new albums. I am going to have to kill the database and rebuild. Mother fucker. So now I am going to have to kill and reinstall gallery again. This thing sucks sometimes. I don’t even know if I want to deal with it tonight.

For my info…

How can I export data from one G2 to another G2 installation?

Unfortunately, there’s no tool to export/import data from one G2 installation (source) to another (target). But there are a few methods that may solve your problem.

* If there’s no G2 installation yet on the target server, just copy your existing G2 installation to the target server. See the FAQ entry about moving a G2 installation from one server to another.
* If the target G2 installation is empty or doesn’t have much data yet, we’d recommend removing the target G2 installation completely, then copying the source G2 installation to the target server and then add your previous albums again, manually or with the recursive “From Local Server” method.
* If both G2 installations are already populated with a lot of data, you can import albums/photos files only. Descriptions, keywords, user data, … are lost, but it imports all albums with all items in the correct structure. You can also decide to only import selected albums and you can specify the target parent album: Copy the g2data/albums/ directory of the source G2 installation to a directory somewhere on the server of the target G2 (but not into the g2data/ directory). In your target G2, go to “Site Admin” -> “General” and add the directory /path/to/source/g2data/albums/ as a local server upload path. Of course your path is different from this example path. Then go to back to the top album of your target G2 and click “add item” -> “From Local Server” and select the path you just entered in site admin. Select the albums you’d like to import and start the process. It will add all albums / photos recursively, that is, it adds them including all sub-albums etc. Once the process is finished, you can remove the /path/to/source/g2data.albums/ folder from the target server.

When I got home from work this morning I was asleep within 30 minutes of laying in bed. I was out. I didn’t wake up until around 3 and then Kim and I walked around the park for an hour. I am going to do this exercise thing. I will lose weight. In my previous post I said I weigh 190, it should have been 199. Sorry! This has been corrected on the blog.

Anyway, as soon as I get gallery up and going I will get the pics up and then give you some to view. You probably will not be able to view any more pictures from here on out without creating an account here with the way I have permissions. Once you create an account say remember password then cookies will take over and you should be all set.

[info]nebulous_blue pointed out in her blog thatThe Sisters of Mercy is touring. They are playing at House of Blues in Orlando. I am thinking about making a weekend of it, going to Disney Quest during the day, seeing the show and then going to Pleasure Island after. Then I will be staying at the Disney jazz music hotel and then going back home the next day. If I take someone it will cost $500 all together including meals. This is going to kick ass!

I want to use Wordpres 2.0, but the main plugin I use (Live+Press) is not compatible and the author hasn’t updated his blog since October, so it looks like that is not going to happen unfortunately. ๐Ÿ™

Today I finished fixing a work mate’s computer. I made sure everything is working and installed a bunch of extras for her as well.

Yesterday night I got a call from Carol, her computer was locked up. It took me five minutes for me to even get her to push the power button because “it is not good for the computer”. Well, what else do you want me to do? Push the button. Then she wanted me to drop everything and fix her computer. I had already put off my workmate 2 days to go down the first time; I needed to get her done. So Carol decided to either take it into a shop or to buy a new computer. So frustrating, and then half way through the conversation she started bawling, her without her computer was the end of the world for her. I tried to convince her that buying a new computer wasn’t going to fix it, and that a pc shop isn’t going to drop everything and fix her computer either, they are going to keep it in the shop for days and charge her a lot of money for the same thing I was going to do for her and I was going to back up her documents and settings files as well. Oh well. She is probably mad at me because I didn’t go to her house today, but I needed to finish up the other computer.

So today I finished things up. Got Office and Adobe CS installed and cleaned up cookies, ran spyware scans, virus scan and then finally defragged before shutting it down.

I used my thumb drive on my keys to sneaker net the files and I have one of those key rings with the detachable sides, so I left my main keys on the kitchen counter. Well, when I decided to attach my keys back together, my main keys were no where to be found. Kim and I looked for about 45 minutes for the keys before Kim found them in a shoe! in the closet. I have no fucking idea how they got there. I know I didn’t put them in a shoe. Maybe they fell and the shoe was below the cabinet and Kim put the shoes away? I don’t know. But it is an odd place for keys.

Anyway, tonight is really slow, and I have only taken 12 calls, my last one over three hours ago. I will make $360 today. Very nice. I need it. I need to get out of this rut I am in with going $500 in the hole every month. I figure between the next two big paychecks I should do it. I don’t know, I am going to have to pay rent this check instead of last check, I am behind a bit. I am now paying rent the same check I am paying insurance. I need to pay insurance next check too to get that ahead I suppose. I need to get my electric in line as well.

Bah! This shit fucking sucks.
