Post by Simply Joel » Thu Feb 03, 2005 9:18 am

the second call from the science teacher... 19.6% and we are in the 3rd week of the new semester.

Someone is catching bald eagles in North Vancouver and removing their talons with feet, and of course killing the eagles and leaving them in the woods. Bad fucking person, bad.

There's a bald eagle that has recently migrated closer to town- a bunch of them normally hang out about 20 minutes up the river. The last few times I've driven in to town I've seen it flying around looking for fish. They are so beautiful!

As I have been reading your posts about the child I see myself reflected a lot. I think you are doing the right thing by riding his ass. I am sure it isn't a problem from "the onery one" but make sure to share emotion and that you care about this child. I am still dealing with issues caused by my father being tough on me and not reinforcing positive emotional growth. This child may fuck up all through school and hate you for a while but eventually he will come around and realize that you have done these things for a reason. In my case when I did well I was granted certain freedoms which backfired horribly on my father because I would turn around and fuckup worse. A consistent regiment was his best solution because it allowed me to come to terms with a set way of life. My father was happy with it because it was strict enough that he felt he was pushing me to do better. The more he tried to escalate punishments the more I rebeled and he learned this.

I hope you can take something from that. I am not old and wise or even the most amazing brain but I was a fuckup in school and a damn good one at that.

hmm, i don't know if this helps joel, but my sister dropped out of school in grade eleven part way through. she ended up going back the next year but to a different school that took more interest in her and did much better, graduated, etc, etc.

i almost failed grade 12 and look at me now! haha!

The trick is to catch this person and remove their feet.... no one should even touch an eagle; they're just too beautiful.

If they were on this side of the border, it'd be a federal offense...and I'd be more than happy to let the punishment fit the crime.

In other news...GODFUCKINGDAMNIT.

The intermittent coolant leak I've been dealing with in Sammi the Bull (my Ford Taurus) for the last couple of weeks has finally hit the big time. I've called in to work for today (thank ghod I was only down the block at Safeway when the flood came), and will be looking up how to get to work on the bus for tomorrow and next week. Tomorrow morning, after my husband gets his check, I'll limp over to our oil change place and have them change the power-steering fluid ('cause the steering's starting to fight me, as well) and see if they can't pinpoint the leak (with as much coolant as was in the parking lot at Safeway, I'd be highly surprised if they couldn't) and hopefully tell me I just need a new hose. I don't think any of the hoses and belts have been replaced since the ex and I bought the car, so that won't surprise me at all. As soon as Doug and I have our last outstanding 1099s, we can file our taxes online and use the (smaller than usual) refund to get the car fixed, smogged and re-registered.

We were going to be late with the rent, anyway. Again.

Fuck me. I need a drink. *heads to the bar*

Koosh: It sounds like a hose.. and those are easy to replace... if you have a friend with minimal mechanical skill they should be able to fix it for you for the price of the hose and a six pack...

Easy, just tell them you want them to 'reprogram' your radiator hose. They'll get a book and figure it out... Also tell them you have a 'beta' version hose that you want to upgrade... they'll get the picture...

fuck!

when in the supermarket this evening, my bag knocked into a fuck!ing display of wine bottles---full ones.

Luckily, I only broke one fuck!ing bottle, the glass making a really lovely popping sound as it hit the floor...

the workers there were all really nice, and though I fuck!ing apologized and tried to help, they just shooed me away and made me believe that it was all okay...

It happens pretty often, GE, and they account for losses like that in their budgeting. Shrinkage. Besides, the markup on alcohol is so high most places, that they can afford to lose a few. Plus, they just work there. All the employees usually want from you is what you gave them: an apologetic attitude for their having to clean it up.

Remember that gravity, like evolution, is only a theory. You shouldn't treat it as a fact.

I agree, RG... Rodent, that cracks me up... all the more so because, according to currently held theories, it's all true...

I need to get some stickers made and head to the store... this calls for a grand prank.... and if others join in, we could have a grand unified prank..

Easy nuff'. Get some mushrooms, butter, and garlic. Sautee the living crap out of them. Then your apartment will smell like garlic. Which, in my opinion, is never a bad thing.

Plus you get a bunch of sauteed mushrooms out of the deal.
