Tick Tock

Another week has passed since my last content-less post and other than that I hardly have anything to say. You'd think I didn't even get out of bed in the morning.

We did have a HUGE fantastic party with lots of fun and friends. Here is how it looked:







First round, 2:10 PM.







Apparently the guys though it was WAY funnier than the girls did.









That's Kurt, not me. I was caught doing the same thing in another picture that I'm not posting. I'm also not posting the one that depicts one of my family members involved in the same sort of "Friendship Celebration".








Kate is saying, "We were about to leave fifteen minutes ago but Nathan had to stop and talk."












Ask your doctor if Viagra is right for you.


I did actually get started on fixing the cracking wallboard joints in the kid's bathroom, and I did move the electrical box for the light. We'll be painting in a few days. Here is a gory picture:

It started off easy. I was just going to put up the new light. Then the electrical box was a foot from where it needed to be and the wires were too short to reach to the new box, so I thought that I might just put in a junction box at the old location and put a cover plate on it. But that was going to be fucking ugly, so I had to replace the wires that were too short. But that meant that I needed to cut six holes in the wall and one in the ceiling, and take out the heater duct, all so I could replace the wires. Of course I had to patch all these holes and while I was at it I had to fix the corner joints which were opening up for some reason...
Big Job.

But, just like the last five months, I'm unemployed. And that is a Big Drag. The biggest drag is not the rejection, it is the SILENCE from the employers. I don't mind if you say no. That's way better than you saying NOTHING. Just reply damn it.

When I first moved to Davis, I sent in emails about jobs on campus, and heard nothing at all.

SIX MONTHS LATER, I got two emails back saying regrets, etc etc, hired someone else.

yeah, kinda figured. thanks


One of the guys I was working with joked about how the person who got that job must have been promoted twice since they were hired.
