Journal Journal: 2 new rules in life 10

1. If you're a woman, I don't want to talk to you about your problems unless I'm your dad or I'm fucking you.
2. If you're a man, I don't want to hear your problems unless you are buying me a drink.

thank you.

Best Damn Sports Show.
Donnie Walhberg (sp?)
He's actually pretty good on it.


Journal Journal: Firefly DVD goodness 3

Oh Yeah.
Got it yesterday.
Includes 3 episodes that didn't air.

Please please buy it so they decide to resurrect this show.
Or at least do some made for tv movies for it.


Journal Journal: Suck on it Durst

When my fist clenches, crack it open
Before I use it and lose my cool
When I smile, tell me some bad news
Before I laugh and act like a fool
If I swallow anything evil
Put your finger down my throat
If I shiver, please give me a blanket
Keep me warm, let me wear your coat


Journal Journal: My rant (since it's the new popular thing) 6

Do your fucking job. It's the same job you've had for 3 years. You know what you have to do when you come to work. There's no fucking reason you should be surprised that you have a task to do that you don't particularly like. We have 3 main components to our job: Hardware assembly, server & application loading, troubleshooting.
It's that simple.
You get paid $75,000/year to do it. Thats right $75,000/year to do what's mostly 60% level one tech stuff.
It's not very difficult and you have a relaxed work environment.
Maybe IT is not your thing. That's no big sin. Get out! Let someone else in that enjoys it.
I've helped you troubleshoot the same types of problems for the past 3 years. It's about time to take some initiative and do it on your own.
Take a goddamned interest in your assumed profession and you might be able to solve some of these things on you own.
I'm not getting paid to constantly bail you out.
If you need to confer on a procedural issue fine. But don't try to get me to do your work.

I don't care that your mid 40's aren't going very well for you.
I don't care that your son is a pussy and your daughter is a slut.
I don't care that your marriage is falling apart because you husband hates you.
Big tits and a smile will only get you so far in life before you have to start putting out. Get on your knees a few times a week and I might be able to put up with your shit a little longer. But you better be damn good at it.

I don't have to listen to any woman's problems unless I'm fucking her.
If I'm not fucking you, don't rag on me.
If I'm not fucking you, I don't want to talk about anything of a personal nature.
If I'm not fucking you, I don't have to listen to you unless there's a business reason.
I get enough of that nonsense at home. But I get the fucking to ease the pain.

In front line combat and in support roles, a lot of fine folks have given up a part of their lives so you can sit on your can in relative peace and watch Reality shows.
To all of them and to all of you poor dumb bastards who have served and are serving at this moment.

edit. Made some corrections when i got home and realized i got some of the old birds mixed up.

Journal Journal: 5-11? I think I was being optimistic.

I didn't get to watch the game. But from the Play by Play it doesn't look like there were many problems. Just a failure to get into the endzone.

Must take the good times with the bad I suppose.
Ironically i'm a lifelong Cubs Fan.

More on that later this evening...

Journal Journal: Dear Lord, Smite these fools. 4

The court vs the 10 commandments stone is/has the dumbest thing i've seen in the news in a while.
These fools bowing down before the thing praying smells more like Idolatry than anything.

While the words may be significant they aren't destroying them by removing the stone.

Fundie Fools are making the rest of us look bad.
