Monday squared.....    2007-10-02 15:32:48 ET
Ever get up and stretch, and ligaments and other things go..."Snap, crackle, pop!" Similar to dry brittle wood. That happened last nite while vegging on the couch. I got the damnedest look from cat 3 of 5. So today it was tender and sore. From my left breast all the way around to my shoulder blade. Walking while not trying to put too much weight on one side sucks. Makes ya feel gimpy, like you should be perched next to the bearded lady and Rex the dog boy at some carnival freak show!

Work was blah(*Monday squared), had all my work finished before first break.So I roamed the factory looking busy(6 hours worth).

Got a call for a job interview today.Back to having the ole plumbers crack me thinks. There was even a mention of the possibility of being a lead foreman:)

Bacon chedder brats and smash tatters for dinner. I guess I'm training for the house-husband olympics or something. Where the hell is calogon?

September sure blew bye like a fart in the wind!

Last week was a mish mash of stupidity on my companies part. Got my 1 1/2 year raise and review. Have been uped to a level 3 worker from a 5. Got my position as a torch operator snagged from me by a doofus who speaks like Barbara Walters, because his dad is a leadman who is also a friggin a-hole! So now I'm a floater. I go between 4 different departments. If you wondering if I feal like a yoyo, you'd be correct!

Saterday morning sucked ass too. I awoke to the sound of 4 smurf bands outside my home. All 4 corners were filled with braced clad kids,doused with clearasil wearing gaudy band clothes:( I was a gnats hair from shoving a trombone up someones ass! Then my thoughts turned to the stretching potential of a tuba. The coffee didn't hit me quick enough. I had to ask the anklebitters to please get off my lawn a half dozen times. While their band teacher paraded around. Fingered him to come over. Me in slippers, lounge pants, and a wifebeater. Asked him kindly twice to ask his students not to lean on my ladies and ny vehicles, and for that matter drop their instruments on my lawn. So like the asshole I can be sometimes. Mr. lawnmower and Mr. weed-whacker made a genuinely kind appearance on the 50th anniversary of this towns band day.

When I was able to finally leave my lair. I schleped up the autopart store to get new rear rotors and break pads. An hour job. Done for 70 bucks.

Like all Mondays and presceding Mondays. It sucked!!! Being trianed on a CNG lathe. Sadly enough the guy that's training me, is about to get canned. I like to learn things without the premise of a friend loosing their job. So two supervisors all day today tried to give me the skinny on the situation. I know the situation. My company sucks! That's why we lost 22 employees last month, due to crappy raises.Hence me, putting out 12 resumes last week. Keep you guys posted.

Gotta go eat and get ready to watch this weeks episode of Hereos:)

So the biggest house in the county that was once two different bars has been sold a third time, since my time in this town. Gage knows where the Villa is. My name came up recently among some people for an EVP session at the Villa. The house has it's own second story ballroom, and 22 bedrooms.My house is the 6th biggest in the county.Part of the history of the Villa is. JFK use to bunk there during Iowa caucuses and around 6 murders have happened there. So it should be interesting.

Weird shite always happens when you do remodeling in old places. It kind of stirs up all the dorment forces. So far floaters have been scene, shadows, orbs, and reoccuring incidents. I'm game! Not that different from my own house that was built in 1868. Except I have pictures and video. And continue to shoot the camera away, at anything and everthing! Never know what will show up?

Anybody know anyone reliable that can convert a regular digital camera into a infrared one? If so. Drop me a line.

Working has been sucking ass as of late. Don't get me wrong. I love what I do tremendously! I work with CNG plasma and oxy cutting torches. But something at work doesn't seem right. In the month of August we lost a total of 22 employees. They either quit, or found a better job. Most of them welders(*top out pay after 5 years of welding is 14.85 hour), where as other companies start you at 17-18 bucks an hour. Now that welders are quitting. It has slowed my fabrication dept down to a creep. Would you really look forward to sweeping floors or re-arranging shelves for 8-10 hours a day? Because that's all there is to do! All overtime has been canceled permanently. And there's even talk of closing the factory for a month, to see if business picks up. I loathe management and the company for having suposable Christian values(*not that I follow their beliefs. Already put in for Halloween off...My New Year:P). Who honestly knows what the hell is going on. So I've taken it upon myself to update my resume, and seek employment somewhere where my talents can be used to their fullest. Of course I won't tell my current employer this. Due to the fact that they are like a severely jealous "ex". Once they know what you are doing, you'll get all sorts of crap on top of crap. And posting my intentions on to let friends know what's up is the same result. Quite a few employees of mine are on that site, and have this habit of snitching to management about my personal goings ons! This is the safest place I could think of to let you guys know what part of the stress on this end is.Besides the obvious dealing with the IRS(aka Bloodsuckers).

Long time no entry!

Looking for another job with less hassle.

My friend I moved out here to hang out with is deciding to move to Washington. Since his fiance left him! Me thinks it's running away, rather then facing the situation. Eh!!!! Stupidity on many levels.

Now paying back the IRS 250 a month for 5 years, so I can keep my house! Bloodsucking pricks!

Will write more when I get the chance......
