I do come to this thread a lot, ready to bitch and moan about something that did ruin my day...and I always see something much worse. So it's a nice reality check. It reminds me of a story (true) that I heard while I worked at a greenhouse.

We had this guy there named Frank, a real Michigan militia-type, talking about the coming one-world government etc. In general, though, he was a good guy. One of his jobs was to look after this computerized, automated system that watered, moved our hanging baskets, running them along cables almost 100' long. The system was prone to glitches both digital and mechanical (one morning I arrived in my section of greenhouses to find a mountain of dropped, burst pots about 5' high and 12' wide, which also obliterated all the lilies underneath. Somtheing like this happened almost weekly during my time there). Anyway, Frank was the guy who fixed that system.

We also had a horde of Vietnamese and Cambodian day-laborers, brought every day by a man named Mr. Dee. Mr. Dee was an authentic Vietnam vet - a member of the South Vietnamese army. He'd actually escaped from the VC on multiple occasions, having been shot once during an escape attempt. At some point he came with his family to live in the U.S. Frank told me about the following conversation.

He was sitting on the floor holding his head in his hands, trying not to lose it over yet another failure in the Echo (the name for the automatic pot system) which was preventing him from getting to his other work. The problem had been exacerbated by one of the laborers messing with the system - somebody tried to alter the programming and had caused a major problem.

As he sat there, swearing, Mr. Dee walked up and asked "What wrong, Frank?"

"Well," said Frank, "you ever have one of those days where every %&#$ing thing seems to be working against you?"

"Oh, yeah, I know what you mean. One day the communists burn my village."

Frank told me he got up, said "Thanks, Mr. Dee," and got back to work on the Echo. So, like that.

I got so sick yesterday and this morning it's just as bad. I have body aches and chills and I'm congested.
It's like a flu without the fever and I'm stuck at school til 4pm.

^You should probably stop trying bets and instead listen to the good kind of TMNT.
My most wanted fight ever is Discord vs Bobobo-bo bo-bobo.
Godzilla has a regen like Wolverine, a skin like Luke Cage, a hero aura like Captain America, a strength like Hulk, an unstoppability like Juggernaut, an immortality like Deadpool.

There's a 'God' in Godzilla for a reason...

I'll try, but this is what I don't get about it, the theme song, I never saw them sing.

I had a visit scheduled with UMD today to help me decide on which college I'm attending.

I didn't really know the way, and needed to print out directions. On the way there, I was looking at my Google maps sheet I rear-ended a truck and my father's BMW became a steaming wreck. It may be unfixable, and even it were it would cost several thousand dollars in damages.

My parents have decided that I have to pay for the damages, which is a fair punishment considering I caused them. However, this may prevent me from attending my first choice college or really doing anything over the summer.

Brit has been acting so strange lately...

We have been arguing alot more then usual, I keep asking if she wants to do stuff, and she always says no or "we'll see" and that never happens anyway.

I am going to her house to talk to her about it tomorrow, not sure what is going to happen.

I really care for this girl. I have been with her for so long and treated her like a man should. And it just became so weird...
Don't try to be something else. Don't try to be less. Great things are going to happen in your life. Great things. And with that will come great responsibility.

About 3 years.

Y'all need a break.


I am going to her house tomorrow night. And we are talking things out.

If we still feel like we do now, then I am proposing that.

I haven't work in three weeks. I really need money soon and it seems like no one in the front office is answering the phone at work.

My mom got me a joke birthday cake, it's not even funny. It's a poor attempt at comedy and it's insulting.
What a bunch of dicks.

^Really?! Sorry to hear about since identity theft is awful and I know people who lost tons of money from identity theft. Not to mention sometimes that identity theft is hard to recover from.

My mom is SERIOUSLY acting up. It almost sounds like she's starting to lose her sanity.

I'm worried now.

Been getting severely depressed recently. I think it's just due to the stress of college and all. I was diagnosed with Bi-polar back in March I believe.
Apparently SWTOR said that I can invite 25 people for a 7 day trial of the game. PM me if interested.

I have a bad cold again and we have a huge storm outside. It's so windy outside that I hope it does not try to knock over the Tree in our backyard.
