Nothing like hitting Cleveland during rush hour!  ::)

Cleve-Land? Uh huh. That's a perfect weird name for this planet.

Insomnia stinks...

My hypersomnia made its debut in earnest for the season on Sunday evening after a week of feeling lousy.

22 or so hours straight. If I woke up throughout that time, I have no recollection of it.

You always find a way to cheer me up. I just wish it didn't have to come through your own suffering!

There is a reason I rarely talk about anything at work. No one really does even if they constantly run their mouths. After all, part of the corporate culture is that we all "get along".

Well, lotsa work. People who live quite well having to deal with the realities of their political choices for last decade or so coming home to roost in a very personal way. Feeling run down. And hearing the same near-racist, always classist rant turn full on racist and even more poor bashing was the straw . . .

After getting over the sound of my voice (I rarely talk to the managerial class) and shock that not everyone who seems nice and quiet and white (I'm none of the former depending on who you ask) shares their ridiculous worldview, moreover can demonstrate from what a sixth grader should know about civics and economics and local history that they are completely out to lunch, I created what I call a kurfluffle or something.

The good news. If I am disposed of as a worker, according to the conversation I had to endure for a while, the average pan handler in Cincinnati makes $80k TAX FREE per year.

Oh finally the fetters and chains I've bound myself with will come off and

I

will be

free

at last.

I will be PMing every known member of the board with my solicitation of funds for my empty gas tank. The car is just around the corner. I just need $10 to get my wife who is pregnant to the hospital.

I know you people are God loving and each will provide as much I ask for and even give more.

God bless and thank you.

I will make a free-will offering and plant a seed, but I expect a 40 fold return on my investment, cause this is my last $10.

Wait, were you serious about getting in trouble?

Dude, so which angle is going to get more from you:

The lying angle and making my situation seem worse?

The "honest" angle and saying, "I just want a lot of beer money" cause at least those people are honest about what they are doing with lives?

Let me know.

I actually had to hear that latter bit. What a jaded buncha people. Casting invectives about my neighborhood and "riff-raff" that live there. The people they "respect" are those who are honest enough to say they are going to use the money for alcohol, sorry, its gonna be heron or crack as well buddy.

This guy not knowing while he is going on his racist rant about where I live as an example of the fall of America and how everyone can find a job, if they want one, that one of the quiet white people is working three jobs to support some family who have been unemployed for four years and can find no work at all.

She has to listen to this garbage all the time. But she is a happy go lucky Lutheran. And since no one actually does much discussion other than empty pontificating and polite personal questions, they don't know the older, nice, white lady is caught . . .

What was your question again?

Lucky for you, orthonorm, I have an occasionally reliable memory, and since I just mentioned vamrat, when I read of your troubles I remembered his recent good fortune from your dating thread:

  I think I found the other woman, and she really sounds like a keeper.  He name is Naomi and she's the daughter of General Joseph K'pondowa of Nigeria.  She said that she has quite a fortune built up from her late father who died in the recent civil war but needs a bank account to store it up in.  She had heard that I'm a reliable man with finances (looks like my exes haven't been slandering me afterall!) so she'd like to deposit the money in my account.  I sent her the account information last night, so by this afternoon I should be a millionaire!  Oh how grand life can be sometimes!

She may have more to share, and I'm sure he still has her email address. It never hurts to try!

In reality: I hope all goes well for you at work.

The Simpsons had a bit about different panhandling techniques. This is the only part of it I can find on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lfTl8-hyXJE

You can fill in the rest for yourself.

Of course, you might want to put yourself on  the cutting edge of honesty with a "Need cash for opiates" sign.

Nothing ever goes well at work, hence its name.

But thanks.

It is really nothing. [Machiavellian office political maneuvers redacted.]

Wish I kept my yap shut. Now I have to deal with a bit of office politics in a less oblique manner.

I've been ranting off on and on about the situation and everything related to it (hence everything) this evening to a few folks.

This is just me winding down.

Kilts are awesome. After couple of years wearing fairly slim-fit-jeans kilt is like a breath of fresh air. Even literally if it happens to be windy.

Tornado warning in Western PA, we just had a big thunderstorm go through with lots of lightning and even some small hail. Power went out for a few seconds on three separate occasions. By the looks of the radar we have an even bigger patch of stuff coming in a couple hours. Blah.

I reeeally want to smoke a cigar and feel like a sophisticated man like orthonorm....

Someone has a crush.

A proper psychoanalytic approach would show something quite opposite. To disclose the reasons for the pent up libidinal rage displaced within this Oedipal economy would be disastrous for us both at this point.

In the end, I will die, but at least JamesR will live on as this works itself out and that is something for everyone to be glad about.

For some reason, Paul McCartney's voice when he was encouraging the crowd to sing at the Opening Ceremonies reminds me of Neil from the Young Ones, but he looks more like Rik.

I wasn't really a fan of this opening ceremony, generally speaking. I love the Parade of Nations, and the lighting of the torch of course, but other than that... not impressed.

If you wish to be like orthonorm, stick to pipes and American Spirits.
I know a secret about a former Supreme Court Justice.  Can you guess what it is?

The greatest tragedy in the world is when a cigarette ends.

American Spirits - the eco-friendly cigarette.

As I like to say, "I was seriously underwhelmed."

I'm going to need this.
