It's not a good day to be missing three staff people...

Did you try looking for them behind the couch? That's where missing socks tend to go. Maybe your missing staff people are there too.

Was missing an adjective or a verb?

What does a three staff person look like? Do they have a particularly amazing vocal range, for which treble and bass clefs inadquately describe them?

I suppose you can add the Supertreble Clef, the Squeaky Clef, and the Ultrasonic Clef, if you have Mariah Carey working for you.

It's great to run into people you knew from high school and realize that they always were cunts and pricks, and now that you're grown up, you don't have to pretend to like them any more.


Slightly longer version: Some people don't need alcohol, or any drug, to be cunts and pricks. Or to gaslight you so blatantly they're sitting there literally doing the exact thing they're accusing you of. And it quickly becomes apparent when someone has no respect for you and isn't seeking to communicate or understand you, but is wholly focused on playing petty little gamma power games of dominance and displaying their utter contempt not only for the facts you present, but even your opinions. Counter my facts with your own sources - that's one thing, but asking me my opinion and then telling me I'm stupid to have that opinion? Up to that point, I had thought I was having a normal, rational conversation; I was asked questions, and I answered. If they get tired of the discussion at any point, they can say so, instead of playing bullshit passive-aggressive games and accusing me of being "upset", or monomaniacal, or whatever. I try to provide nuance so I don't get misinterpreted, and try to finish my sentences, and he interrupts me to accuse me of interrupting? Fuck shit all over that. And later someone else tells me "Well, you *were* upset..." I wasn't "upset" until some prick lied to my face telling me I was obviously upset, and the more I denied it, the more that proved I really was "upset"? That was the point at which I laughed, told him "fuck you", and was done. That's not even high school bullshit - that's grade school bullshit, and a grown man who raised a family apparently doesn't feel one lick of shame resorting to these cocksucking tactics.


If only I could have realized all this back then. But it's never too late to improve your life by jettisoning some cunt from a helicopter, even if it's only a metaphorical one.

Yeesh. As I tell people all the time: there's a time and a place for junior high school drama; it's called F*c*book, keep it there.

Halloween, is a special time for me.

Christmas, not so much.

The local Sears store put up their Christmas stuff in October.  The universe punished them by closing the store.

Let's say I bought a fridge ten years ago, and now the manufacturer says "sorry, this fridge is too old, we're going to remotely disable the temperature control and the freezer."

So I bought a fitbit ultra a bunch of years ago, and as of november 2018, there's no way to synch it with the computer, so you can't see your sleep monitoring, cannot reset the clock, etc. 


I'm seriously peeved.

It is funny you think a recently manufactured refrigerator would last ten years. 

I had to replace a microwave recently, the manufacture date was Aug 2003. The key pad was starting to break apart, one of the wheels on the turntable kept coming off and the inside paint was starting to peel.  It was probably the last decent thing GE made, I was happy to get 16 years out of it.  It still worked, but cosmetically it was failing.  I picked up another GE microwave, this unit feels very flimsy 

I see Quicken has moved to the "software as a service" model.  I really don't want my information "on the cloud".

Quicken has been cloud based for a while now. Maintaining and supporting 72 versions of your software is painful. Having one version used by all is much easier.
