…But I still can’t help feel a bit jealous after reading this on Fox News:
Congratulations and best of luck in the future
My roommate is right. It seems like it’s always One. More. Thing.
My tooth hurts. I have to find a new place to live and a way to afford it by mid February. And now my own brother is being a royal pain in the behind.
So here’s the deal. Over lunch I try to get ahold of Mom, the financial person in the family with over 20 years in banking. Nobody answers at home, so I call her cell. My brother picks up. After explaining how things suck and how I’m trying to figure out how to pay for it all, he tells me to get my tooth fixed before he shows up on December 5. After failing to sufficiently express the problem of preferring a roof over my head to a fixed tooth, he hung up on me – watching baseball is more important. I tried seven more times to get ahold of Mom. Nobody picked up.
Voicemails were left in both places explaining that a failure to communicate which does not end by noon tomorrow will cause me to fill the tank on my car and drive the five or six hours down to go see them. With my luck I’d get stuck someplace along the way.
One. More. Thing.
No, not the blog this time. This time it’s me.
My ex-girlfriend and current roommate has decided along with her family that it’s time to move on. They’re leaving Las Vegas for numerous reasons and I can’t say I blame them at all.
February looks to be the time for the move and I’m hoping I can find a way to afford a new place. The downpayment will be the biggest expense, but I’ve also had help the last four years paying the rent, too.
Wish me luck
Yep, I’ve finally gone and done it. Created a new firearms specific blog, that is It’s called “Desert Gunsmoke” and should be interesting to say the least
Phoenix has never been and will never be a place I like. It’s too freaking hot in the summer for one thing (and I live in Las Vegas for crying out loud ) and it doesn’t seem to have much in the way of entertainment, either. It could be that I’m just spoiled after living in Las Vegas and San Diego my whole life.
This charming little news report just adds one more reason to the extensive list of Why Parrothead Jeff will never move to Phoenix. Go on, watch it. It’s only 2:36 long.
Some call people like me racists for wanting to wall off the border and shut the Mike Foxtrot down. Sorry, that don’t fly anymore. I know I won’t stand for it and I know others are waking up.
So here’s what I gather all wrapped up nice and neat. The same Federal Government that refuses to defend you wants to disarm you. It’s getting dangerous out there. Keep a weapon handy. I will.
I didn’t say it. Look to Obama’s guy Emannuel.
No, this won’t affect me. Guess what? I don’t give a flying F**K. It’s WRONG. It’s UNCONSTITUTIONAL.
But these days I guess that doesn’t matter anymore to elected officials.
Anyone else wonder how long it will take until these three months for 18 to 25 year old citizens become “re-education” that all will be required to attend?
As the Jawa Report says, “Who Knew It Was Prophetic?”
Pardon me while I go puke.
Hat tip to Stop The ACLU
Yup, I thought something must be wrong when all of a sudden I stopped getting any comments at all. Even the SPAM stopped
The more I thought about it the more I realized that I had to have screwed something up worse than usual. A bit of testing and I found that when I removed a plug-in that wasn’t working anyway I had taken away something that was being used by a line or two of code in the comments file which completely broke the functionality
After removing the offending code from the comments file, I’m happy to report that all is well again and posts are open for comment
Sorry this didn’t get published yesterday.
I was surprised to see the following in my work email, sent by a co-worker to the entire company. Surprised because this place is pretty business like. I’m also glad to see this hit our in-boxes.
Armistice Day Changed To Honor All Veterans
Yes, Aviation Nation 2008 has come and gone and I’m still recovering. I seriously need to quit driving a desk so much
The performers were great as were the static displays. Communications broke down now and again with the whole volunteer gig, but I had a wonderful time overall.
I promise to write more soon, but here’s some pictures in the mean time Clicking on a picture will open the full size picture in a new window. The full size pictures are not small, so it might take time to load them. I’ve only got the digital camera pics uploaded (need to get film developed) and all of them can be seen in my gallery where you can see the rest of this past weekend’s digital photos.
Thanks again for stopping by!
