Mika - Big Girl (You Are Beautiful)

I asked a magic 8 ball today if I'd ever be happy with my life. The response: Don't count on it....
Here's something that makes me happy. Mika's songs always puts a smile on my face.

Too pissed off to be sad

Last Friday marked the 1 year anniversary of my fathers suicide, but I was really too pissed off to be sad. Its started with getting Scooby some crutches. Walgreens rental on crutches are $ 40 dollar deposit and then 4 dollars a week. We kind of decided that we're no spring chickens so we should probably just buy some used ones someplace. Luckily I found a pair on Ebay, starting bid .99 cents and the seller was only about 40 minutes away. I emailed the seller and asked if I won could I pick up in person, cuz I need them asap, no problem said the seller. Wednesday morning I won the crutches for .99 cents. I immediately emailed the seller again telling him that I could pick up tomorrow between 10am-3pm and would he be home. I planned on visiting a friend in the area while I was up their then head to work from there.

Wednesday.....no response
Thursday morning....no response

So I cancel my plans to visit my friend and went to paypal and paid for the crutches. Late Thursday night I get an email from the seller telling me that tomorrow will be fine that he will be home. GRRRRR I email him back saying that I emailed Wednesday morning and that when I said tomorrow I meant Thursday and that I couldn't make it on Friday and to just mail the crutches since I already paid for the shipping through Paypal. Then he tells me that he's a new member of Paypal and because of this won't recieve payment for 3-4 days and will ship once he receives payment. I email back that I've never heard of this new member paypal procedure, but whatever. He then tells me that he don't care whether I believe him or not and that he didn't understand why I didn't ask for his phone # because he was home all day Thursday.

By this time I was to angry to respond back. What was the point of asking for a phone # when he didn't respond back until Thursday night. Long story short the crutches should be here tomorrow.


I couldn't make it up there Friday cuz I had a house cleaning job that morning before work. Back story on this, I've cleaned house for this guy for about a year. I really didn't want the job when I got it cuz the house is filled with half antiques and half worthless crap. Tons of shit to dust and to add insult to injury everything is filled with those dollar store colored glass stones. But we agreed to 45 dollars every other week and I could use the money.

Well last fall I was vacuuming and backed into a bakers rack. I heard something fall and sure enough one of the bottles of wine fell and landed on a soup tourine and broke the handle of the lid. I cleaned up the mess and tried to put the bottle back but it was shorter than the others and would not stay up on the rack. I wrote a note apoligizing and also told him the bottle was to short and would not stay on the rack. Luckily there was no makers mark on the tourine so it probably wasn't worth much

Next time I go to clean the bottle is back on the rack. This time I'm just dusting the clutter on top of the rack when the bottle falls again but this time smashes a creamer that does have a makers mark. I write another note apoligizing again and said I'll try to replace the creamer. I really didn't feel it's my fault, but hey I try to be a nice guy.

Anyway last Friday I get there and he's got this list of things to do and at the bottom he writes, "Be careful with the breakables". That was it....... I cleaned the house did everything on the list then wrote him a note nicely resigning from the job. I also left the check telling him to use it towards replacing the creamer, left his house key and left through the garage door.

So basically the end of last week was a total GRRRRRRRRRR!!!!

Healthcare rant

Scooby got his cast on his left foot Monday. Our Dr. office really pisses me off. First they didn't tell him before hand that he should have someone with him to drive him home. He thought they were going to put him in a walking cast. Not...... Then AFTER they put the cast on him they give him the script to get crutches and a walking boot. Did I mention that we had a snow storm Monday. He's lucky he didn't break his neck.

I don't understand why they didn't give him the script last week so he would be prepared for getting the cast. WTF!!! They did manage to wheel chair him out to his car, but I guess after that who the fuck cares.

Vacation drama

We got into New Orleans mid afternoon Dec. 26.. We ventured out to visit with our favorite bartenders and preceded to get drunk. We then started to argue about Scoobys black out problem that I had just learned about. Note: things have been getting damaged around the house several times in 2007 but it was always blamed on the cats until I witnessed Scooby doing it recently. The day after he had no recollection of doing it.

Anyway we argued and he left me at the bar. Shortly after, I took off and took a walk around the Quarter. I called him later to meet me near the car and he never showed. I called him a bit later and he ended up wandering out of the Quarter and got lost and didn't know where he was. I told him to find a corner street sign and call a cab, but he couldn't find any street signs. I drove around for an hour or so trying to find him but had no luck. Hours later he found a cop who directed him to a corner so he could call a cab.

In the process of him being lost he fell down and fucked up his foot and his face. By the time he made it back to the bar, blood ran from the bridge of his nose all down his face. Did I note that this was Wednesday and we didn't have actual lodging until Friday, also that it rained for the first couple days of our trip. We stayed at the bath house the first night and I got us a room at a really cheap motel Thurs. night because Scooby needed to get off of his hurt foot. He refused to go to a Dr. or anything while we were there.

Now that we are back, he's had his foot exrayed and it is indeed fractured and he got a cast today.

That was pretty much the excitement of our trip. Otherwise it was pretty low key while we were there this Holiday.
