I found a home for one of the amps and a bass tonight. A friend came over with his wife and together we went through all the cases of my dad's collection, took lots of photos, wrote down makes, models, serial numbers, and conditions, and he's going to look them all up in the database where he works and get me current market values for everything.

For their effort, I gave him the little Pignose practice amp, and her an acoustic bass she kept picking up.

So... that's a little less in my house to worry about.

i can kind of rely on my military experience to get my foot in the door through a correctional officer job, possibly. the hardest part will be getting a decent running vehicle to get to a job that pays more than 20,000 a year.

By-the-By

I REALLY ought to have given an official update.

I mean, it's not like I'm busy or anything, its just that I really kinda lost myself with the interests that I used to be in.

what I mean is "sure, 'I still have a pulse'." post is nice. But then I come up with an idea that brings me back, and it goes 'fizzie' 'puff' 'poof' almost as soon as i come up with the idea 95% of the time. *sigh*

At anyrate, I'm living on my own.
I got a job not too far from where I 'lived'. What I mean by that is that I'm keeping that as my home addy still. but either which way "Jae Onasi" and "Skittish Bob" have been missing me for about 3 weeks until today. Not sure when the next time I'll see my kitties again, but today, they really couldn't get enough of seeing 'daddy' again :3

With no license, I have to walk to work, which is no big deal. I just hope that despite all of my problems accumulated thus far, i can at least hope that this job becomes a more main stream thing for me.

the hours sorta suck, but at least it leaves me open for plenty of overtime. I don't mind the work, but the people whom I work with are another story. My mother commented on how suddenly grey I started to become. :/

still like muffins tho :3

not having a car or an income is the most depressing thing in the world right now...but it has been worse. i'm holding alot of anger in because of sortof being forced to buy a car before i got home and it breaking down, etc. and 1/3 of my deployment money went into that piece of ****. i don't really get mad at anyone i just hold it all in, just little things that piss me off so bad or **** that i have no control over, most of it i blame on my past like having no direction in a career as far as anything beyond retail, girls that aren't ****ing insane aren't interested in me beyond friendzone, idk. i can't wait to start school though...but once that ride is over, i'm pretty much ****ed if i can't get a decent paying job, and i refuse to live through my 30s like this. i'm considering going to the police academy. i'm considering alot of good things and ideas lately. but without a vehicle and income, it's all wishful thinking, i'm so ****ing mad right now. **** these meds....

Orrrr... you could be in a relationship that is slowing dying but neither party truly wants to admit it.

So... you're not... you have that going for you. Which is nice.

Work is sucking right now... but that's OK, since I really don't have anything else going on in my life which is the slightest bit stressful or anything.

I really shouldn't complain... I did have the holiday off. That's enough for the month, right?

Running has been brutal the past couple of days due to the humidity. I hope it gets better later in the week.

The universe seems absolutely determined to get me to snap.

Don't worry universe... I'm practically there.

Now my mom is upset with me over... Something. I don't know, she won't tell me what... I'm getting the silent treatment.

And on my way out today, my neighbor comes over and claims he saw me throwing trash out of my car window the other day as I pulled away. Which not only did I not do, but I emptied my car of all trash when I cleaned it a couple of weeks ago. He said it was a soda can and food wrappers. Again not mine, since I hardly ever drink soda, and I never ever eat or drink in my car and don't allow anyone else to.

He reacted like I was lying and covering up. Swell... Just exactly what I need right now, a battle with the neighbors.

There is officially no aspect if my life that doesn't completely suck right now.

lol i hate annoying neighbors like that. i hate people more and more every day. i had an incident with the bus yesterday (the ******* did a "california stop" at the bus stop and speeded away), i had to practically run to the route it was heading to..and i almost told the bus driver off today for going as soon as i swiped my card (i almost fell)

i decided to call the va hospital and see why i was called last friday, there was a silent voicemail, and apparently i have an appointment tomorrow. now i'm on hold with the mental health clinic. apparently they set me up for the van ride down there tomorrow, however no appointment at the clinic. really weird...

another thing, i don't have to take criminology because that macroeconomics class took up that slot, so it wasn't necessary...this means i only have school til 11 monday-friday. really happy about that.

edit: after being put on hold for 20 minutes, i'm scheduled to go down there for god knows what reason. prolly jut gonna go down and talk to someone idfk. **** the va. only thing they're good for is this medicine. lost 10 pounds on it so far. lol

Cool Guy Shipping

Ed: my mom is being a beyayitch, too. Constantly pissed off that the kitchen is a mess...and it's her mess. The theory now is that she's too sick to clean up the kitchen, but obviously she feels good enough to pull out a bunch of sh*t and leave onion peels on the counter. I call bullsh* t.

Kuuki: have you looked at a bike? They're super cheap these days.

KK: the guy at Burning Man probably was confused about what the festival name was all about... Way too much peyote.

I've been spending my free time on building a model of the Mayflower. The thing is huge, 1/72 scale I believe. Painting realistic wood is a bitch and a half; you paint a lighter tan coat, then dry brush a darker brown over the top. Easy to do on a flat surface, but a detailed ship's hull is another matter. The kit I'm building it from was made in 1970 (someone had it in their basement and I bought it from them) so the plastic sails have disintegrated. I can make better sails from cotton handkerchiefs, which I think I will roll up and stow on the masts. The rigging will be fun, since I've never done it before...at least Mayflower is a simple ship with only three masts.

The ship as it looks now. I've finished some assembly and the base coat is painted; about half of the dry-brushing is done.


The wood painting technique I mentioned. The lower part of the hull will be ivory colored, so the dry-brushing stops there and one can see the effect.


I'll post pictures of the model when it's finished.

I've probably been a bit snappy lately... But considering the stress I'm under, I'd say I've been a saint.

I feel like I have the entire weight of the world on my shoulders, whist juggling a nuclear warhead, a vial of Black Plague, and several other deadly things that could instantly wipe out a good portion of humanity if I drop a single one. I feel like I can't rest or mess up.

And we're halfway through the summer, and I haven't done a single "Summery" thing yet. All I want to do is go exploring some new areas, take a hike in the woods, hang out with friends at a cookout, eat fish by the waterfront, maybe talk to some girls... And, possibly even go on a date again.

Instead, I've been dealing with lots of long stress filled days at work in a row, followed by making endless calls to Florida and digging through mountains if paperwork, and eating crappy and not getting any sleep, I feel lousy pretty much all the time, i havent had any real exercize in weeks, and now I'm getting grief from my mom and the neighbors... And I haven't even taken the time to acknowledge my stepmother's passing, or mourn the fact that my dad is pretty much lost to the outside world.

So yeah... I might just be a bit snappy.

Only family worries i have is dealing with my Half-brother who wants nothing to do with my dad. Or the same dad that raised him since he was 6. IN fact my dad even, point blank, told me to not invite him to his funeral.

That, and I have my deceased mom's sister and her husband arriving in Madison Friday supposedly to have lunch. No word from them yet. Might not go

got seen an hour early...got a extra 30 day refill of medicine...i'll be on this for a few months, probably forever with the way things seem to be going...only so much i can do. and nobody's calling me back to go work for them. so....**** it. just wish i could have had made better career decisions in my early 20s...not having any career guidance or counseling when i was younger really ****ed me over. at least i got the national guard...only thing i did right in my life.

took my time down to 18 minutes, that's 37 seconds off my personal record for the year....not counting the pt test. getting my pace and feeling great, also losing weight, hoping to be down to 180 by september...i lost 10 pounds within the last 2 weeks. i'm not sure if it has to do with the drug i'm on or from the running. i don't feel the need to take caffeine or alcohol, my appetite seems suppressed as well, so i think it's the medication. ah, at least i'll lose my gut maybe that'll make me more attractive to the pretty 20-23 year old girls in school...i can only hope.

going to take the test for correctional officer in about 2 weeks...so that was a good phone call/good news. and walmart called me so i'm currently playing phone tag with them.

hoping that walmart has a job offer for me. at least i know i can do that job without any issue. (and 1-2 weeks computer training is easy)

cashiering at sam's club. **** YEAH. JUST WHAT I ALWAYS WANTED. dream job. eh, no more complaining...i need $$$

I hope the nice weather lasts through this weekend... I'm finally getting some days off this month.

I don't have any plans yet. Mainly, I hope to not worry and stress about things for a few hours.

We'll see how that goes...

i walked 8 miles today, skipped taking the bus because i was curious how to get to walmart without being on the highway. was a nice trip, found a burger king up there. oh and my drug test was up there. now i gotta fix my background check...put in my birthdate for the date of signing.

Cell phone off... maybe. But I've spent too much money and time in hotel rooms over the last month to look forward to that. Unless... the time spent there was not to be alone.

But since that does not appear to be a realistic possibility, at least not without additional large sums of money changing hands, I'll sleep in my own bed.

I may take a hike in the local state park tomorrow... if I even have the energy to get out of my own way, that is. I got home from work early today... and fell right to sleep for over 3 hours. So that should tell you something about the current state of things.

that's good that you got some rest, ed.

so i'm down to 1 drink whenever i go to a bar. i love the way this drug makes me feel. getting **** done every day, i don't feel tired anymore, getting sleep...letting little things that piss me off go, slowly but i'm feeling better. really starting to feel like i'm prioritizing **** and idk why i didn't see a professional sooner. however, i'm still waiting to actually go to therapy, shrink went on vacation.

my goal right now is to work as much as i can while going to school, get a car, finish school, get a better job or 2 jobs, save up enough money to get my own house, if i happen to get in a good healthy relationship in the process, that would be even better. i think i could possibly get a job working for Security Protective Service with the CIA in D.C. down the road, or go for my bachelor's degree and become an agent. so many opportunities..

applied to another job...this one is full-time, temp to permanent, 2nd shift, weekends off for 2 cents more than what sam's offered me...and it's much closer (not crossing highways and ****) and that place pays weekly which is nice. if i get that, i'll quit sam's before i start...however, if i get the correctional officer job and they need me to go for the 5 weeks training which will fall on my class schedule, I'm gonna wait a year to go back.

Getting ready for a camping trip after next week.

I have a GoalZero 13 watt solar panel, with a "Shepra 50" 50Amh rechargeable battery and 100watt inverter. Should be have no problem charging my smartphone, MP3 player, and even powering a Traveling Cpap. Much better then lugging a couple deep cycle battery and 400 watt inverter. Reduces the weight i need to "Carry".

The campground has a unique Cart-in feature where you can haul gear to your primitive site without resorting to backpacking. SO i can set up in style in the remote wilderness.

Also will be bringing my Kayak and try my hand at fishing. But still will have enough food that I wont need to forage for it

Forage? If there are other campers, just bring a shotgun. What is this 'forage?'

It should also be noted that fishing from a kayak is hazardous. When you cast, you roll.

So.... spammers on Lucasforums? What is this blespheme!

Delt with it in the Rogue Squadron area, since I still rule that domain. Need someone else to tag the one here....

Also was informed my father's sister passed away. I never knew her, but I also don't know exactly how to tell Dad. It's complicated, but to put it in perspective, he didn't attend his own parents funeral for reasons.

So.... that's a thing. *sigh* With my Uncle Jay (My mom's brother) coming in this weekend... my sister and I have no idea how to tell Dad....

Lightbulb Kill them

Jeez, Cracken, that sounds like a bad situation comedy...with no jokes. Good luck with that one!

Spammers here? I've been killing web-bots that pop up over at Monkey Island. They just leave them up and we generally make fun of their postings, which are usually incomprehensible anyway...

KK, what do I know about fishing, anyway? I fish with a shotgun. Never do catch anything, but I have a lot of fun trying.

I'm still the mod here, and I've been seeing your reports, but one of the supermods has been "beating me to the punch" lately.

finished Game of Thrones.


Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.

I bought the new D&D 5th edition starter set box on a whim tonight. Maybe I'll eventually manage to find people to play it with...

Nothing. I got book knowledge and that is about it. Rod/Reel, with a few lures. Frog, Spinner, Jigs and basic hook and bobbers.

Eight points clear of 2nd place for my team now, which means, at worst, we're tied for the lead after this week's bowling.

The weather was pretty nice this morning and I felt like I had a great run, but I looked at my time when I finished, and it was abysmal! It was bad last week too, but nothing like this. I'm starting to suspect something might be wrong with my watch. There is no way I ran as slowly as it reported today. I will have to test it. TO THE SCIENCE ROOM!

I had a mostly boring uneventful weekend... just what I really needed after the last couple of months.

i cut 17 seconds off my 2 mile this morning. i'm pretty sure if i was more hydrated (drank sodas and bottled lemonade yesterday) i'd cut a minute more off. down to 17 minutes and 43 seconds. that's 2 minutes and 43 seconds more than i want. using that mapmyfitness app helps with the pace, i walk a mile in 14 minutes...so i think if i run twice as fast as i walk, i could get my time down to 14 minutes. almost under 200 pounds.

waiting on freaking phone calls today for work. the call came in...i'm just waiting on the background check to complete then the job recruiter call me back to let me know when my first day of work is. I really can't ****ing wait.

I have to go to the college tomorrow and figure out what went wrong with my account...they're saying my courses aren't gonna work out or something...more stress to deal with, and i already paid $15 for the adding/drop fee i'm not paying them anymore. grrr
