Couldn't get in line fast enough to get a ticket for BM this year. So I won't be going.
So today, being a day off, I thought I would listen to a morning AM radio station that was giving away Van Halen tickets for their Labor Day concert in Reno, and guess what,
I was not caller five so I won't be seeing them. Unless some other way to get tickets, without paying $250, comes around.

DOUBLE FUCK!

There will still be tickets popping up, esp in reno.

Even without a sellout, there are always enough people left in reno to throw a huge party.
It might even be a better party.

Well fuck! Now the goddam fucking car just died. It is not charging the battery. Think I can fix it with a five gallon can of gas and a match though. I just need enough money to get the fucking gas.

I am seriously stressed.

a job i was vasically bullied into doing when i first started appears to have gone wrong. if it has it will bankrupt me, the cost of replacing the glass will run into hundreds of pounds, so next month when i get paid it will all be deducted from my pay basically meaning i could end up working for nothing, i will be going to lok at it tommorrow and if it is "my fault" then i have no real choice but to hand back the van keys and walk away.

the company won't accept my reasoning that i did not want to do this job or the way it was done was slipshod, they will simply stop the money from my wages so although i am sure i would have legal recourse that won't prevent the financial loss however i play it, my only real option is to walk away before they get the chance to get more free labour out of me.

there is a possibility that the customer may want more work done but...... that would just lead to more financial risk i simply cannot afford

FUCK

I was just starting to enjoy this self employed lark but i think i need to get out before i am literally bankrupt. its all starting to get a bit too much

the only ray of sunshine in this, is I have a reserve fund of money i lent my landlord (sort of) that will get me through going home this year and my airfare is paid, when i get back to blighty i will properly poor again - and next tax year (april) i should get a healthy rebate so its not the end of the world but i really feel this a fail right now.

I'm starting to feel a little depressed about this, if i hadnt already been i guess i would be putting this in the sucidal tendencies thread but having found a place that refills my spiritual and emotional batteries i will never be that bad again.

if only.......

i had gone to america when i was 20 with my parents
i hadnt been such a bad boy as youth that probably prevents me ever getting a green card
i had someone just round the corner who knew what being in black rock city was like so i could talk about it

just fuck i want to go home, my fire is embers right now

thanks cat in the hat, maryA mdf and yggi, i went to the job today and if not for the next bit i could probably by virtue of my skill and knowledge reduce my liability significantly and possibly even generate some money.

HOWEVER.

i have just gone through my detailed pay report to find out why i got about £500 less gross than i claimed for and it seems the company has been chopping a half hour here and there.

right now i am trying my best not to get into a email arguement with the head of department but i think it is going to be a losing battle.


oh well its just a job i am going to Burning man this year I have a ticket, i have my plane fair all the big details are sorted. money put aside.

fuck them they dont own me.

That's right, Grai. You're a free man, and you've got damned good plans for the summer. :)

Don't let the bastards get you down. If that means you have to pencil in some time for sincere moping, and then distract yourself with something better when the egg-timer rings, then that's you do.

I hacked away for hours today designing the shielding to seal the drivetrain of the tadpole trike. Things were going along pretty well until I realized the way I had part of it set up, the chain would rub right against one of the corners. To move that edge, I had to redesign the way the steering linkage ran through laterally — which needed to be done anyway because it's exposed to more force than I originally thought it would. I quit when I got to a design that satisfied all the criteria — mostly for fear of discovering some criterion I forgot about which would invalidate it again.

One year anniversary of my friends suicide coming up. Missing TheCO, not sleeping, losing my fucking mind.

Decided to seek fucking professional help. Not entirely sure that I am okay with that.

A good professional can be a lot of help. I prefer Licensed Clinical Social Workers to psychiatrists and psychologists. In my experience they are much more practical and focused on immeadiate goals. Which it sounds like is the place to start, based on my magic ability to know everything pertinent about someone's issues on the basis of a single sentence. Sometimes two.

a friends son in law, helped put a lot in perspective for me, today.

On this day, each year, he has a "hand party"......at first I giggled (knowing my perverted mind).
but
it was this:

On this date, in Iraq, he was top gunner on a HMMV, and was hit with an RPG.
he lost his hand........one kidney, part of his liver, spleen, and other stuff I can't remember.
His pals, packed his guts back in him, wrapped in plastic, and got him to help. And he survived!

Fuck me!! Sometimes I sit and whine about a sliver, or not getting any chocolate cake.

I don't post this, to take away from anyone's posts here, nor diminish any hardship.........I just posted it, to help me an others, perhaps, realize there are varying degrees of "fucked up day"..........

I couldn't figure out the right place for this, so.... fuck. I'm sorry you're struggling.
