Life Sucks sometimes....

Post by dragonfly Jafe » Sun Aug 23, 2009 4:01 pm

Why do the Good Guys (tm) get hammered sometimes? Like having car troubles, a dying dog, and hassles with the Org's idea of a mailing system week before leaving for the Playa....

It just isn't fair!


(I know, life is not fair...)


Damn!

Damn!

Damn!

When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle.
Then I realized that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me

I feel you... Things are going great... Then all the sudden I pinch a sciatic nerve in my back, can barely walk now. Crazy fucking allergies came out of nowhere. My face is burning... And the SUV just took a shit and is now in the shop. Had the whole year for this shit to happen... But no. Happens the week before I leave. Fucking bullshit.

I can't sleep now, I AM so stressed out.

It might be the energy drink

It smells like glue in here.

Thanks C.f.m. very amusing article, and yes, my computer killed the Onion's tracking cookie.

No slackers this year? That can only be a good thing.
