Yeah!! Last day of July. Oh wait, that's a bad thing. Only one more official month of summer. This is one of the first years that summer hasn't bothered me extremely bad like in the past.
Today was fun. Had some old lady in the store and she wanted some Stress Vitamin with Iron in it. Well, we have it but it has Vitamin C in it also, and apparently that wasn't good enough for her. I say take the C and quit your bitching. Some people are never happy, and they wonder why I'm disgruntled. After her I had another one ask me if we sold meat juice in a can. Um, you mean broth? Yep, that's what she meant. Then another one asked me where the Ben Gay was, and I showed her and she goes...Oh, nevermind I already got some in my cart. I swear they line up and plan to annoy us. I might have to update my customer page soon.
I bought a new CD at Best Buy last weekend. Ugly Duckling - Taste the Secret. It's a very nice throwback to the old days of hip hop, if you remember that. If you were a hip hop head back in the late 80's and early 90's, go out and buy this CD, in fact get their other discs if you can find them. Journey to Anywhere and Fresh Mode. You won't be sorry.

Holy shit, another month almost gone. This year is over half done already. Worse yet, summer is coming to a rapid close. Hell, back to school sales are in full swing, and we know what that means... Halloween isn't too damn far behind. I'm getting rather sick of the same ole, same ole lately, I need to get away. I'm actually going to be going down to Arkansas in about three weeks, so that should be a nice vacation. I wonder how I'll get along without the Internet for a whole week? It's going to be scary shit.
I see the government is warning us that the terrorists may be planning another airplane assault. That's just wonderful. Good thing we have all our people in place and our security is now top notch. It is, isn't it? I'm shocked the terror threat level hasn't been raised yet. I guess we will wait until campaign time really heats up, then we will start trying to scare America into reelecting George. I certainly won't vote for him, in fact I will vote for whoever runs against him. I don't give a shit if it's Kobe Bryant, I'm voting for that fucker. Hey, Clinton got a BJ in the office and he was a hell of a lot better than Bush, so Kobe would fit that bill rather nicely.

OK, what in the hell is going on with these old men and the farmers markets? First last week some old man runs down and kills 10 people in California and this week it happens in Florida? What in the hell is up with these old bastards? No more Viagra for you pops. So when are we going to start taking these old fuckers into the DMV and make them take their driving tests again? You can't deny reality and think you are still as good as you were when you were 20. Your vision and reflexes and judgment are all on the downslide and maybe you should be checked on your ability to drive a 2,000 pound hunk of metal and plastic before you kill someone.
OK, onto something else. We killed some Husseins or something I heard. Shit I saw too. At first I thought it was a pizza commercial offering some buy one get one free pan special, but it was some blown up Iraqis. Hey that's good, at least I know we are killing some of them too, since every morning I turn on the news and I have to hear about more Americans dying every day. Hopefully in 2004 Bitch Bush won't get reelected and we can get our country going again. What the fuck am I thinking, the sonofabitch wasn't elected in 2000 either. Funny how that works.

Another shitty day today. This week has been a little different than usual. Monday I was so tired that I left work early and came home and relaxed. Tuesday when I got to work, I found out I had been volunteered to install the new computer at 1pm. Well, after waiting until after 2:30 to get the tech support phone call from our office (apparently we're all idiots and can do nothing on our own without these people), he tells me it's too late and we will just have to do it tomorrow. That doesn't sit too well with me. About 3 he calls me back and has now decided we will start with the backup of the old computer and get the whole process going. I was at work until 6:30 that night working on that shit. That brings us to Wednesday. I came in early because I set up a Link Sys and some other crap Tuesday night in the back office thinking it was temporary, only to find out it was permanent. I had to come in and run all the wires and shit so everything would be hidden. I only worked until 10am and came home and did some biking. Today was a normal long day, and some more computer fun stuff. They installed Word 2000 & Excel 2000 on the computers in the back. Now these are old computers that are struggling to run Windows 98SE mind you, and there is no way in hell they should even be having an Office 2000 program on them. Well, they installed them and when you open them up, they shut down in about 5 seconds. They were still dialed in when I left today. At least it isn't any of my concern, because tomorrow's Friday dammit.

Another Monday here and gone. It's been a hella busy weekend for me and I'm still tired from it. My friends moved about 50 miles away so I ended up helping them. Friday night we were up until midnight packing the big ass truck, then back up Saturday morning at 7, packed until about 5pm, drove down to the new house and started over in reverse. We unloaded until about midnight again on Saturday night and got up at 7 Sunday morning to start again. I didn't get back to my house until sometime around 8 last night and I was extremely tired. I am still somewhat tired and will probably go lay down for the rest of the night and just relax.

Wow, this work thing gets to be more of a pain in the ass everyday. Tomorrow is real good. I have to drive to Minnesota for a meeting. A two hour meeting. It will take me approximately two & a half hours to get there. Anyone above a 2nd grade math skill can tell that I will be driving for five hours to attend a two hour meeting. Now, imagine working in that much stupidity EVERY FUCKING DAY. Now maybe you can tell why I am constantly sick of my job.
Last night was another joyous weather event. We were under a tornado watch until midnight for some reason. Apparently it was supposed to storm or something. It didn't, unless you consider two claps of thunder and some rain a storm. I don't. Minnesota got hit once again, which is just fine, keep that shit over there and out of my state.
I'm somewhat bored with my page lately, nothing to really update. I need a new Internet project to start working on, something fun and challenging. I'll have to put my thinking cap on for this one. Shit, I don't know where I put it.

Shit, it's Sunday the 13th. Oh wait, wrong fucking day. You know, I saw something rather disturbing today. A problem that I feel needs to be addressed immediately. Old men who go outside without their shirts on. Why do you do this? There is no need for you to be outside mowing your lawn without a shirt on. Nobody wants to see your 60 year old beer gut or your saggy nipples grandpa, so put a T-shirt on and spare me the show.
On the brighter side, I did see something kind of cool this weekend. Actually Friday night around 12:30am (technically Saturday morning, but luckily I'm not technical). I saw the Northern Lights for the first time in my life. They were extremely bright and were basically going like waves in the sky. It was a somewhat greenish color of light shooting through the sky. It was really damn cool. Luckily I was sober or I would have been really fucking freaked out over that shit. If you've never seen them, check out this site for some cool pictures of what they look like.

It's about time Friday got here. I get sick of all those other stupid days getting in the way of a good weekend, don't you? By now you've probably thought I won the Powerball and headed for the hills. Well, no such luck there. I didn't even win one dollar this time. Two tickets matched, one in Missouri and one in Pennsylvania, so that wouldn't be me.
I went biking tonight, the last quarter mile or so, my left pedal fell off. Have you ever rode a bike for a quarter mile with only one pedal? It's very tricky let me tell you. My right leg feels very strong now, luckily I didn't' turf it or anything, which is what I was afraid of. Yep
I finished my 3rd Bass site finally. Actually I think it was done Wednesday, but I can't really remember. Maybe I'm starting to lose it. Now I am going to be bored on here, no pages to do. I don't foresee redoing this page at all, and if I do it will be like a new banner, or different color buttons, but the layout is here to stay I believe.

Another day another dollar as the saying goes. I think it should be another day another headache as that seems to be the way it's been going lately. Nobody won the Powerball Saturday night, so I've still got a chance. A one in 120,526,770 chance. So I guess I won't be quitting that job just quite yet. I have won $7 on the last two times I played, so maybe my luck is finally warming up. Of course that was probably all the luck I'll have on the lottery.
Not a whole lot going on other than that. Now that the 4th is over, things seem to be getting a little more normal around here. Asshole neighbors aren't blowing off fireworks and shit like that now. The weather is back to comfortable again. It was so damn hot and humid over the weekend I thought I was in Florida or something. In case you thought I wouldn't bitch about the heat, just remember, I bitch about everything. That's my job.
I saw 8 Mile and Old School this weekend. I think they both will be added to my DVD collection pretty soon.

Well, another day done. It's Saturday and I didn't win the Powerball as planned. There were so many good things that I could have done with 200 million. I had planned on contributing to several charities of my choosing such as; Best Buy, Ferrari, Porsche and Lamborghini to name a few. Oh well, everything happens for a reason I guess. I'm sure some 90 year old won who is just going to die and leave it all to her cat in less than a year. Motherfucker is probably rigged anyway.
I noticed the fireworks stopped a lot earlier than they did last night. It's one of those things you want to go outside and say hey fuckers, that was yesterday, get your drunk ass back in the house.
I went golfing today. Not exactly the best outing I have been on. Went to a new small 9 hole course around here. When I called for the Tee Time they told me 2:12. Now that is not a normal time, usually they do it in like 10 to 15 minute intervals, meaning they overbooked. On at least three occasions we had one of the employees drive up to us and ask if we could hurry up a little. Gee...should I try using both hands when I hold my club? What the fuck are these people thinking? Overbook the course and then bitch at us because you're backed up. Fuck you and your pissy little course Lynn Dale's.

You know, for a day that we are supposed to celebrate our independence, we all seem to do the exact same shit. Let's see, what did you do today? Had a cookout, got drunk and lit off some fireworks. Just like everyone else aside from the homeless and the Amish. Pretty independent there bucky.
Speaking of Independence Day, what is it anyway? Well, it's America's Birthday; turning 227 today. What did you buy America? Did you even say Happy Birthday? Shame, shame. May the loud noise of your drunken neighbors shooting off fireworks keep you awake until the wee hours of the morning.
I am currently in the process of updating my 3rd Bass fanpage. The style is going to be very similar to this site's, with the upper menu and other menu's on the sides of specific pages. Now that I know what I'm doing, it should be done a little quicker than this one was.

Whoa, tomorrow is the 4th of July already. Who can believe that shit. Well, I can because my stupid fucking neighbor seems to think he should be blowing off some of his fireworks tonight. Speaking of fireworks, what the hell is up with these firework explosions? Not my dumbass neighbor, I mean the shit in Florida with the truck that exploded and killed five people and now a warehouse in Texas blew the hell up and three are missing. I guess there's another profession I won't be going into.
I can't fucking believe that we are one day away from July 4th and our terror level hasn't been raised yet. Usually we raise that for every holiday. Maybe they are finally tired of crying wolf. Usually they do that shit to scare us out of having fun or something. It could be that they just figure with these two explosions going on that we will be too scared to do anything. Add in the porch collapse in Illinois and you've got some paranoid party goers. Who needs a terror warning when you've got people scared to go outside already?

Not a whole lot of anything going on today. It's almost midnight and I've finally finished my page. Hopefully it was worth the two weeks or so of time that I put into it. I like the new look. I can even handle the new color scheme as well. Hopefully all the links will work, considering that I'm done a couple days ahead of my schedule.
I am just itching for tomorrow so I can be done with work for three days. It seems these four day weeks drag a lot faster than the five day ones, but who knows. I am so sick of being there, that could be the problem. If I could think straight I'd actually write more, but all I'm thinking about is sleep.

Wow, first of July already. I haven't been updating the blog at all. Been too busy. Too fucking busy. Had company up here from Friday afternoon to Monday morning, so there went the weekend. I did manage to get on the computer off and on over the weekend and put together a rather snazzy new look for the site. I am still working on eight pages so it probably won't be up until this weekend, but it is looking pretty nice to me. Hopefully it will load up quicker than the old site used to. I have a new menu system on there which is on every one of the main pages, and the back buttons are now at the top of the pages. I cant really explain it, it's just something you'd have to see.
Today at work I put up Back to School. Yes, apparently July 1st is a good day to set up back to school. Fuck the 4th, we're skipping right into school time. No need to worry, there is still a whole two months of vacation left before school even needs to be a worry, but why not start shopping early for it. Right? Maybe I can do Halloween in August this year. That would be fun. I tell ya, work is nothing but a shithole as of late, but that's a whole other story.
