December 05, 2002: [•] Oh my God! A Stack Ups! double update! No wait! It’s a triple update! Holy crapola! Love me long time! [•] Everything looked pretty grim for me on Tuesday night. Looked like a major life change was going to happen for me. By Wednesday night I was in a hot tub and my life was back to normal. Well, not that I often find myself in a hot tub; but I think you know what I mean. Life, in general, was normal again. I spent Tuesday night into Wednesday afternoon taking care of Gette. That was pretty cool because normally I don’t see Gette that early in the week. She’s got a cold so she’s pretty sick. Poor kid. I tried to make her as comfortable as possible and to keep her fever down. There’s nothing worse than having to watch your child suffer and not being able to do anything. All the doctors will tell you is “keep fluids in her” so they’re worthless. She was drinking lots of juice and that’s a good thing. Hopefully she’ll be better soon. Wednesday afternoon I went shopping with my ex-wife and Gette. Mel had to do Christmas shopping for her house and I just kind of tagged along. I paid my bills via their respective mall outlets so I don’t get hit with late charges this month (image that). My debt consolidation is going well and from what I can tell I will be out of the hole (so to say) by Spring 2003. Nice. Hung out with V later that night. I was fatigued and stressed out so she opened up her hot tub. I chilled in there like a boiling lobster until I was nearly asleep. Then it was time to go home and go to bed. Now today I woke up and it’s really dark outside. It is apparently snowing like crazy across the entire Eastern US. I cannot tell as I have no windows so I’ll just take the TV’s word for it. We’re supposed to get around a foot of snow and that doesn’t bother me any. I only work down the street from where I live so I could walk home if I had to. Besides, there are worse jobs to have when it’s snowing outside. For example: This poor schmuck has to stand outside in the snow. He serves no purpose since all he can say is “Bob it sure is cold out here” or “Hey, it’s snowing and pretty nasty out from what I can see”. He literally gets paid to stand outside and look like he’s reporting something. What can he report??? NOTHING! It must suck to know that your job revolves around how well you stand outside in horrible weather and look good. I would just once love to hear the reporter say, “Well Bob, you’re sitting on your fat ass safe and sound in the studio while I’m out here about to die. But don’t worry I poisoned the cafeteria coffee machine and your all going to suffer a slow painful death too. Happy Holidays!”. Yeah, I’m evil, but I’m funny so it’s okay. [•] Post-Lunch Update: I went outside finally. It is snowing out. It sucks. The snow is getting mashed into ice by traffic thus making a nice slippery surface to conveniently collide with oncoming traffic with little to no effort. Extremely nice. Going home should be fun. I’d hate to be one of you who has to commute far. I feel your pain. I really do. Oh no, wait… I don’t. Sorry. I’m evil (I just remembered).
October 23, 2002: [•] The saga of separation continues: Started working on my Order of Separation from my wife. It will take about two weeks to process and then for all intents I will independent of my wife yet still married (Confused? I’m with you. Just smile and nod.). After a year either of us can file for an uncontested divorce from the filing date of the original Separation Order. This is more of courtesy to Mel then a must do thing because she needs health insurance until she can find her own. I don’t simply want to boot her out and leave her dry. That isn’t fair to her. Besides she relied on me for three years and now she needs time to get her life in order. Hopefully she can get everything together in a year. Once again, I don’t want this to be one of those divorces where we come out hating each other. Indeed, that would suck. [•] BrokenReality has gotten 10,000 hits to his site. Congratulations! [•] Skyler’s going through a lot of crap right now so if you see her give her a hug– she needs one. [•] Immy has cooked up a new Stack Ups! based video game called STACKANOIDS! Download it RIGHT HEEEAA~! [•] I went to the Goshen diner last night with V and Broken. I got back home then balanced my checkbook. The good news is I’m going to make it bill wise, but just by the skin of my teeth. UGH! Why does it seem I never have enough money even though I make more than most people in my situation? It’s just mind boggling sometimes. I have no extra cash, period. At least Gette is well cared for. That is my biggest concern. Had a busy day in general though yesterday: Attorney, oil change on the Focus, clean the flAnnelcAve, food shopping, and starting to tie up a lot of loose ends in life. Today is going to be information digging day: Got to get information on my life insurance, salary, and finalize the numbers that will determine my child support. Fun, fun, fun! I can’t wait for all the paperwork, debt, and law service costs to be finalized then paid off. I really want this all done by November because I need to start Christmas shopping. I want this to be a good Christmas for Gette and hopefully I will be able to make it good. God knows I need a miracle right now, but I have high hopes that I’ll get through this okay. At least I can smile and say that single life is going better than expected. Aight, peace out homies!
October 21, 2002: [•] New Stack Ups!; so go read it. [•] Last night, after work, I watched WWE No Mercy at Immy‘s. Rock, Mermaid, BrokenReality, Skyler, and Damiana all showed up. It was a good time and no one died (which is always good). The show itself mostly sucked ass until the Hell In The Cell Match between Brock and Undertaker. Brock handed the Undertaker his death in a bucket and I’m pretty sure that Undertaker will need a blood transfusion today. The man wasn’t just crimson masked, he was near comatose. Brock barely broke a sweat and and at this point I don’t think anyone can take him out in the WWE right now. Excellent match. I fear the writers are building to Brock versus Triple H at the next PPV. Normally, I would loathe any match that Triple H (a.k.a. I use my knees and hump the boss’s daughter so I get a 10 minute entrance a la Goldberg for no apparent reason). Last night HHH put everyone to sleep right before he used his knee and a (surprise) sledgehammer. I’m convinced that if you put HHH in the ring with the Bigshow they both couldn’t muster more than four different wrestling moves before they would be forced to punching each other repetitively for 15 minutes straight. Result: Stupid match (even Kane looked like he was going to fall asleep 90% of the time). Then again, most wrestlers know how to wrestle; a skill which both of Triple H sorely lacks. My hope: Brock will break HHH like the bitch he is. Funny moment of the night goes to Jericho who tried to lionsault onto Booker T only to have the second rope break under his weight. Some Teamsters are getting fired somewhere LOL. Jericho visibly twisted his ankle, but managed to work his way (through some improvisation on everyone’s part) to a third rope lionsault (a move that was banned by the WWE months ago thus making it all the more kick ass). Good match. Torrie Wilson and Dawn Marie were in nothing, but sports bras and micro hot pants. Mental note: Record on work’s TiVo then replay of that show and spit it out to DivX for future use 🙂 Rob Van Dam versus Ric Flair was good, but nevertheless I really didn’t watch it. Maybe I am just getting tired of Flair period. Retire my friend; it is time. Benoit and Angle are my new favorite tag team. In fact, for the past two years I’ve hated tag team matches in general (can you say completely confusing suck ass wrestling), but they are simply great together. I am really looking forward to their next match. Result: Very good. Trish Stratus needs to stop wrestling and simply start coming down to the ring naked. Problem solved. Immy theorizes that Brock versus Hogan II and Flair versus Triple H are the next main events this coming month. He’s usually right, but I’m going to venture a guess anyhow: Brock versus Triple H (unification match) and Kane versus Rick Flair as the second tier main event. I pick the winners as Kane and Triple H (even if he doesn’t deserve to be the “Brock breaker”, but God knows that’s what they’re going to do). Oh yeah: Tajiri versus Jamie Noble was good too; if not slightly forgettable. 🙂 [•] Tomorrow promises to be an “interesting” day: I’ve got to clean my apartment (ugh… I hate when the place gets dirty), go food shopping, get child support to my wife, get the separation arrangement drawn up with my attorney (yes… tomorrow I become officially single– stand back ladies), move a bed and a fridge over to Mel’s (more space rules!), get an oil change, deposit my paycheck, pay my bills, get the mail from my PO Box (hopefully none of you sent me anthrax AGAIN), and maybe hang out with someone (all work and no play… well that’s my life and it sucks). End of post. BEEP!
Dec. 21, 1999: Been doing some editing lately on the web page and I must say the final product is awe inspiring. I truly believe I’ve authored an original work of art. I’m rather proud of it. Another thing I’m rather proud of is Melissa. She’s been sticking up for poor Immy because certain people believe that it’s fun to pick on people who have had serious debilitating injuries. Of course those are the same people who believe that acting like a child is part of making people respect you. Yet, another sign that when certain individuals wish season greetings to “friends”, only with the hope that they don’t spend the holidays alone… they will. It may be a Merry Christmas after all 🙂 Speaking of Christmas… all my shopping has been finished (all because of Mel… but ummmm… okay I’m a slacker leave me alone <G>). I’ve decided that in the “true” spirit of Christmas to pray for everyone’s’ souls… some how I doubt that will do anything to some of the assholes out there, but I have high hopes that maybe they’ll get a lump of coal or something. I’m praying for a T3 to appear in the flAnnelcAve courtesy of Santa Sprint LOL… then again what the hell am I going to do with a T3? I’m never home to use the net anyhow LOL. I’ve been trying to put the Christ back in Christmas… so I’ve been meditating on what I hope for the New Year: 1.) To produce a positive web product. 2.) To influence positively and creatively with that product. 3.) To forget about those competing pages that are merely jealous and be content with my success while learning from my failures. 4.) To hope that everything gets better while trying to make it be that way. 5.) To love Melissa just cause I can 🙂
Dec. 15, 1999: (Portion editing via pesonal request because some people are weird) Didn’t do too much today. Got my haircut. Mel and I cleaned out the flAnnel-fridge. That was fun. So on to World News— The war continues in Checnya and casualties have begun to run high. Bin Laden supporters planned a New Year’s bash… bashing of Americans that is. Venezuela is going to try its 26th constitution, 26 times is charm 🙂 The US market has been flooded with fake Poke’mon products (not that the real stuff is that much better). Al Gore is cool about shagging the weed yo. Win2K is ready to go; who shall we conquer today? MTV may be a monopoly; no they don’t force you to use their browser when you order the cable channel. The Beastie Boyz have apologized for there homophobic past; better late then never… damn lamers. If you check out here on marilynmanson.net you’ll get to see what Manson has to say about this millennium. Okay, here it is… the non-Y2K compliant bored post of the week… check out RRAnarchy‘s wonderful pic or just click here… either way it’s more fun then cleaning the flannel-fridge 🙂
