Okay, so I'm trying to start posting again. It may not be much, but screw it. This is my journal. Might as well continue the chronicle.
So I'm currently unemployed. I start my new job at Hewitt on the October 1st. That will mean I've been unemployed for a grand total of two and a half months. It sucks, but I never anticipated that I would have to wait for this job to start for 7 weeks. Oh well, my mistake. But I'm employed again, at least for 3 months. If I'm lucky I'll get (at the absolute least) the extended 11 month contract. One can only hope.
I've got a new car. It's a sweet ride. Honda Civic Hybrid. Really nice. Got it form Car Max. I have to thank my mother who not only helped me get the car, but has not paid one of the payments. Actually, right now being unemployed wouldn't normally be so bad considering that Christopher will "works" for Comcast. Except that he's not working right now. He's actually out right now because his doctor told him he coulnd't work. So he's had a proceedure to determine what the hell is wrong. In the meantime Liberty Mutual denied his short term disability claim. I don't know how the hell insurance companies get away with it. I mean, a family practitioner and a specialist in his feild told Christopher that right now working is not a good idea and yet Comcast and Liberty Mutual's RN seem to think otherwise. So right now we're in the process of appeals, but that means Christophr hasn't gotten a paycheck in like 9 weeks. Real pain in the ass.
Won $20 in the powerball on Saturday's drawing. Not that it means much. I mean, it's nice, but we spend $8 a week (when we have it) on tickets. It'll help. I guess it's a silly pipe dream to constantly play the powerball, but I'm spending a couple of bucks a week to dream and hope. You can't win big money if you never take a gamble.
I'm back into TV. It's kind of crazy. Deadliest Catch, Burn Notice and Warehouse 13 over the summer. Smallville and Supernatural in prime time. Then there are the staples of our household: Iron Chef America, Good Eats, No Reservations, Mythbusters, and a few other Discovery and Food Network programs. New love in the house is the campy yet oddly satisfying What Would Brian Boytono Make? That's correct, Food Network gave Brian Boytano a TV show and used the South Park song as the opening theme. You have to see it if you haven't yet. It's piss your pants funny.
Gaming goes along as usual. Christopher and I have transfered from Dark Embrace to Fair Escape. I know it's a stroke of irony, but the timing was just right. After banging my head against a wall in an unenjoyable and unfulfilling gaming experience for the last two years... it was time for a change. So we've changed. I'm actually really relishing the opportunity to help build the place from the ground up. It's been a lot of fun and I look forward to the next several months. Trin and I have some good strong plans and it looks like we've finally gotten the DST on board (I hope).
AFO was great again this year. I was a little stressed out during the weekend... then again I'd just been fired. Thankfully I used the free time to focus my efforts towards the con and I really boiled some things down. I have now broken the Defense Against the Dark Arts-like curse on the Volunteer Coordinator position. I've fulfilled 3 years in the position and I'm moving into my fourth. I'm retardedly proud of it.
Christopher and I are getting married at the end of the this year (hopefully). We may not be able to sign the paperwork when we have the "wedding" if he hasn't gotten all of his bankrupcy paperwork out of the way. Again, oh well. I'm not concerned.
That's everything. Pardon the spelling errors or flat out disregard for spell check.
