Woe Is Me

I am now POSITIVE that I got up on the wrong side of the year!

1. I used all my computer skills to try and fix that spyware that I picked up somewhere. Not only did my computer have this, but 38 different viruses, including the Trojan virus! I finally had to call for help. The guy couldn’t fix it, either, so I called another one. He had to take my baby to his shop. He prescribed some antibiotics, and Tylenol. :o) My computer is fine now.

2. I continued to work on my new domain, when I somehow screwed up my FTP, by sending my entire Domain folder out into the web! It took me forever to fix the mess – I think! Oh, and I was eating toast with lots of honey when this happened. The toast slipped out of my hand, and fell right on top of my keyboard. The honey just kept dripping down into the keys, crumbs and all!! It was IMPOSSIBLE to clean. Had to buy a brand new keyboard.

3. I started getting a rash on my rear end! I went to my doctor and she prescribed an ointment, which didn’t work at all, and the terrible rash just kept getting worse. I remembered that I had bought a different detergent from the one I always buy, because it was cheaper. I went and bought my REGULAR detergent and washed all my clothes, and the rash went away. YAY!

4. I still can’t find the remote to my TV!

5. I still haven’t received the Obama coins I purchased over the phone!!

6. Grandpa and I spent a whole weekend cleaning the backyard. The giant trash can was filled to the max, so we had to put the regular garbage into a regular trash can. I had made some chicken with Mole the day before, and emptied the chicken bones into the trash outside. Twinky, one of my 10 dogs, tipped the can over and ate all the chicken bones and almost died. You never give dogs chicken or pork bones, because they are splintery. To make matters worse, chicken Mole is made with chocolate. Chocolate is deadly for dogs. I would have taken him to my vet, but not this time, because I just wouldn’t have been able to afford paying a bill of 4 or 5 hundred dollars, so I went to the pharmacy and bought an enema. I filled it with warm water, soap, and olive oil, and shoved the tip up his ass. I went through this procedure 3 times. Twinky is fine now! YAY!

Most of you know of the love I have for animals. Had this failed, I would have taken Twinky to the vet and paid the astronomical bill I would have gotten that I couldn’t afford at this time.

7. I can’t help it, but I’m starting to feel sorry for Rod Blagojevich. Does he deserve another chance?

8. Thoughts on our economy? Is there hope?

1. My desktop caught a nasty virus, too.
2. Ouch@ bum rash
3. Hope you find your remote control. I always seem to misplace mine...
4. You got the obama coins? Nice. I kept eeing the infomercials.

1. What a nightmare when our baby (computer) get sick, huh?! I actually lost sleep over it! Hope your computer is all well now!

2. Yes, rashes are the pits, especially when you get one on your rear end!! If anyone is going through what I did, it's probably because you switched detergent brands. I'm surprised my doctor didn't think about that maybe being the problem.

3. It's been weeks since I lost it. I've looked everywhere, and have come to the conclusion that I'll never find it again. I always watch TV when I go to bed, and when I start to fall asleep, I just click the off button on my control. Not anymore. Now, I have to get up, walk to the TV, and turn it off myself!

4. Yes, I bought the Obama coins about 3 or 4 weeks ago, but haven't received them yet. When I get them, if I ever do, I'll post pics here.

I was just talking with my wife about Blagojevich. Our country does have a standard of innocent till proven guilty, but listening to the guy whine today, in front of the Illinois legislature, it was like a high school debater trying to throw as much smoke in front of your eyes as he could. While what he was trying to saying was essentially true, that had not actually sold off that Senate seat, the die was already cast. He's just dirty. Good riddance.

I used to dislike the man intensely, but after watching the man on a daily bases, I've come to kinda like him. I feel so very sorry for him, his wife and his children. I really wish him the best.

He is brilliant, that's for sure!

7. I haven't even really heard the evidence against him and only assume that those voting on his fate had. I would find it hard to believe that he had no friends and everybody hated him enough to make it unanimous. He's probably guilty or close enough to it and is just hitting the TV shows and such to spur doubt in those that don't know all the details.

8. Oh boy! Unemployment is over 7% and the expect it to go over 9% by the end of the year. Every week, thousands more get laid off just in the Seattle area. If there aren't extensions to UI, I expect things to start getting really interesting here in about 6 months. I've already have lots of friends that have been unemployed for a while and can't find work. At least one is losing their home because of this. They were living within their means but once everybody loses their jobs and can't find another one, you really can't pay the mortgage after a few months. Now more are getting laid off.

I'm doing ok and outlook on my job looks good. Even if I do get laid off, I figure with UI and savings and I could survive for another five years if I get a roommate and limit my lifestyle immediatly. As it is, I'm now in my apartment without a roommate and have moved out of the basement I've lived in for the last 10 years into the bedroom. Not looking for a roommate and sort of missing the extra money, but in the back of my mind, I'm just keeping that basement open to fill it with friends as they become homeless.

Somehow, I think I'm actually just longing for the punk rock communal life style I lived in college. 8 people in a three bed room house. :-)

7. I wonder how many politicians are shaking in their boots right now. What wrongs have they committed that haven't been found out?

I'd never even heard of the man, until this scandal broke out. After watching him every single day, I have come to like the man.

Should he ever write a book, I'll definitely buy it. Should he ever have his own show on TV, I'll definitely watch it. I wish him well, for the sake of his family, and I know you do, too.

8. Oh boy is right! I could smell this coming since over a year ago. How could it not have happened? Money was spent on this war as if the money were coming from a pot at the end of the rainbow! A war in Iraq, when there should NEVER have been a war in Iraq, Mother Nature's rage for it's abuse, and the ungodly corruption, our own personal wasteful spending, and so much more.

These are trying times, and times when we'll all find out who our true friends are, and those who were not.

Since a post you made in your journal a long time ago, I found myself truly admiring you, because when you made that certain post, I know what type of man you are; a good, compassionate man!

1) See, you need me as a close, personal friend to fix things like that for you.

2) If you still have the keyboard, you can try putting it in the top rack of the dishwasher. Either the keyboard will be be fine and work afterwards and be clean, or it will be completely dead.

3) Seems there is something in that new detergent that irritates your skin. You may want to compare labels and see if you can figure out what it is.

4) Bwahahahhaha. And, you never will.

5) Well, I will keep my fingers crossed for you.

6) Dogs will do that. I am glad he is ok.

7) Feel sorry for him? Um.... NO! That was his whole plan. He was hoping to sway the public, possible jury members, etc. with his "poor ole me" act. He doesn't even understand what an impeachment is. I hope he is convicted and given the maximum sentence on all charges to run consecutively.

8) It is going to be bad for a long time. The only real hope is for executives to cut their own pay and start paying workers more, companies to start making things here in America again, and for companies to stop shipping jobs overseas. I don't see that happening anytime soon. Otherwise, things will be even worse the next time.

I will be putting my money in safer investments, will be trying to buy land, etc.

1. I know. You're so damn smart! Seriously!

2. Are you serious about putting the keyboard in my dishwasher, or are you pulling my leg?! Whatever, I'm gonna try it!

3. I've ALWAYS used Cheer to wash my clothes, but on that day, when I went shopping, I bought this other off brand detergent because it was so darn cheap. It almost destroyed my bottom. There's a saying in Spanish that so true: Lo barato sale caro! Cheap stuff turns out to be expensive in the long run!

4. Speaking from experience? Boo hoo, I think you're right! What a mystery!

5. I hope I get them, too. This is the first time I've ever bought something in this manner. When I made that phone call 3 or 4 weeks ago, as usual, it was a recording with instructions as to what to do to purchas the coins. I was to give them the number of my check (not my account number). I never kept track of it (the check number I gave) and just continued with time, to make checks to pay my monthly bills. I now realize that I should have made note on the check, that it was used to pay for the Obama coins.

6. There was no excuse for Twinky doing that, because he, as all my 4 legged-kids, are fed very well. Twinky is my little tattle tail, because when a dog is doing something he shouldn't, he starts barking like crazy. He's barking like crazy right now! Let me go see what he wants me go attend to! :o)

7. Feel sorry for him, Sweet Pie. He has a wife and kids.

8. I honestly believe we're still living the good life, even at this awful point. We're all going to personally experience what those of the Great Depression went through, and it's going to be even worse. God help us all, especially those families that have little children to feed!

My computer is fine now.
Well I was glad to read that bit of info. I think you need to check out how you surf the WEB and clean it up a bit. Use better software on your PC and NEVER load anything on your PC without checking it with a top notch Virus Checker.

Blogo brought on his own problem, he left today without saying I am sorry. What a jerk. The bigger they are the harder they fall.

The Economy: Your guy is going about this the wrong way, more and bigger gov never ever solves any problem. Leave it to the business man on the street, he will get it done, better, faster than any freaking bureaucat ever can.

Give the taxpayer a huge tax break, not giving the money to Washington will do more for all of us. Mark it down sweetie.

Re: My computer is fine now.
I was working on one of my pages about dogs. I personally believe dogs have souls, so I Googled to see if anyone else believed this, too. I found a site witht he description of SOULS AND DOGS AND SILVER BRONCO. I clicked, and something FUNNY happened to my computer, then it wasn't so FUNNY, because all hell broke loose in my computer, and my life! So, if you ever want to know if dogs have souls, go to MY DOG page to find out my own version! :o)

Blogo couldn't say I'm sorry, because then he'd be admitting he was a criminal.

Give my guy a chance. My poor baby just became our President a couple of days ago. Not even Saint Michael can instantly fix the mess YOUR guy made! heh heh

I agree with you on the huge tax break for us little people. Let me grab my tablet so I can write it down.

Wuave you Sweet Pie!

Re: My computer is fine now.
I'm sorry, but the economy will tank further. I'd consider keeping skilled with your gun, having grandpa set up a cinderblock wall (to keep the animals out) around a part of your yard to grow a food garden with, storing some food, and maybe getting some silver coins.
Jan. 30th, 2009 07:34 am (UTC)
Re: My computer is fine now.
I know. I started suspecting it since the year before last, and I prayed I'd be wrong.

I'll be writing much more about this topic.
Jan. 30th, 2009 05:24 am (UTC)
If you want to give that rat bastard Balgojevich another chance take him in to your state. A chance for what? Feel sorry for him, why? He can join Governor Ryan in prison for all I care. What in the world are you thinking? You want to feel sorry for anyone..feel sorry for all the people that are suffering from the non-ending chain of governors who have done nothng for this state's economy. We haven't had a decent governor since Edgar.
Jan. 30th, 2009 07:21 am (UTC)
You know more about him than I do, because of the state you live in. I saw him today, and he almost cried when someone yelled out that she loved him. I saw the pain in his face, and my heart went out to him.

Okay, he said some things on his phone that were a little questionable, but what did he do that has caused you and so many people to feel so angry?

Shouldn't we wait to see if he's guilty of all he's being accused of?

1. Right up until you find out you've still got CoolWWWSearch on your PC. Ugh, that thing was a nightmare to clean out.

3. Lesson: Sometimes you've just got to pony up the cash.

5. I hate not getting stuff I paid for, so I know where you're coming from. (Had a $90 order never show up -- been over a year now.)

6. What kind of chocolate did he eat? I'm just curious how deadly it was.

7. Sure, why the hell not. Let's give every corrupt politician another chance. Ted Stevens, you're next!

8. It's got to go down. The government propping it up like this is only delaying the inevitable, and creating more problems in the meantime.
Jan. 30th, 2009 07:12 am (UTC)
1. How did you pick up CoolWWWSearch? What in the world is CoolWWWSearch?!

3. I've always used Cheer detergent. It's pretty expensive because it has a secret ingredient that no other company has been able to figure out. The secret ingredient prevents clothe losing their original color. This is the very first time I decided to buy this CHEEP off brand soap, and I lived to regret it. I'm back to Cheer, and all is well again.

5. I sure hope the same doesn't happen to me, but I'm starting to wonder, since it's been at least 4 weeks since I bought them over the phone. I'm sorry you haven't received the merchandise you ordered!

6. All chocolate is poison for dogs. The chocolate I use when I make chicken mole, is a chocolate I buy in Juarez, Mexico by the name of Ibarra. It's very different from the chocolate you eat.

7. Ted Stevens makes my stomach turn, but for some reason, I have come to feel very sorry for Blogo.

8. It's only just begun going down. Things are going to become unbareable for all of us, except for the filthy rich.

Hi. I think i got up on the wrong side of this century!
Jan. 30th, 2009 07:39 am (UTC)
From the moment the clock struck 12 on New Years Eve, and found that I couldn't find the remote control to my TV, I knew it was going to be a very bad year for me!
Jan. 30th, 2009 02:03 pm (UTC)
AH but on the bright side... and this is hard for me.. I'm a optimistic pessimist by nature... I'm ALWAYS POSITIVE something will go WRONG! LOL

1. The computer is fixed!! YAY!
2. You still have honey and toast to eat in a time where ppl are struggling SO hard to put food on the table!
3. The rash is clearing up and/or gone which makes it no longer a pain in the ass.. pun intended (Dave's daughter here.. common! LOL)
4. and 5. Well try as I might I can't find a plus other than it gives you a lil more time to work on repairing the domains!
6. Hes is well now so alls well that ends well!
7. Not at all. He should have not been so awful and cruel about the whole process. I hate the fact that he left an entire state in turmoil when people need stability SO badly!
8. There is ALWAYS hope! It's the one thing that no one can take from any of us!

So see.. your year could be going MUCH worse than it is so far! Hope I made ya smile as that was my only intent! :)
Jan. 30th, 2009 03:56 pm (UTC)
1. YAY!

2. Honey in your keyboard? Ow... :(

3. Do you need a rear end massage? :D

4. I hope you've found it!

5. I hope they arrive soon!

6. I really wouldn't be able to do that! You're awesome :D

7. I'm really not aware enough of the whole thing to comment...

8. There's always hope, love...

Love YOU!
Jan. 31st, 2009 06:43 am (UTC)
You are an interesting person....

be safe....

Ve las cosas positivas, salvaste a twinky y te curaste de esa horrible alergia.
Jan. 31st, 2009 04:25 pm (UTC)
(1) Glad to hear that nightmare is behind you.

(2-6) Murphey's Law is a bitch!

(7) I think your blood sugar is too low. :P

(8) Right now is an economy of opportunity. If you can find a way to thrive right now, then when we get back into a bull market, which I calculate to be around 2012, you will be able to cash in tremendously. But, you have to invest in order to take advantage of this opportunity.
