2008: The First Six Months

I thought this was gonna be a good year, but here at the halfway point I have to say this is the worse year I've had in a long time. Work is going okay, but the rest of it sucks.

Besides stuff that went down earlier this year here is some of the new stuff from the last few weeks. I same "some" because there were a few other things that I just don't feel like sharing.

Renters of my house in Vegas have destroyed the jacuzzi, the frame is falling apart now. Another one of the air conditioners has died as well as the refrigerator. That was a fair bit of money on top of the $200 dollars I lose every month anyway because of what they pay in rent versus my mortgage payments.

I got into a car accident last night, busted up the front, passenger side of the car. I'm sure that is going to cost another nice bit of change.

Love life is non-existent again. There was the whole Original Girl, Racist Girl and Other Girl "thing" but that is pretty much over. Thankfully. Yes, I do actually know their names, that is just what I call them in my head. I am bad with names but not THAT bad... okay I can't remember Other Girl's name, but two out of three isn't bad!Joseph Circa 94-95To avoid this being a complete downer post, I present you with this picture circa 1994-95ish for your amusement. It was sent to me by my long time friend, the lovely Kristina, as payback. I made fun of her when she asked if they had the Fourth of July in Australia. I told her "No, the calendar here goes July 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 5th..."

Check out that hair though, sigh. All my power went away when I cut it. I have dated this picture in my own time line; which I can only remember in terms of who I was dating, I put this squarely between Kia and Dawn.

Dawn if you're reading this, sorry I let you down. Hell, this whole shit parade I'm going through now may be me paying off the karma I owe you.

WTH is that in the center of the frame? A wookie?

I can't remember the dog's name, but I always though that for Halloween Eric#3 (I have lots of friend's named Eric) should have dressed him up like Muffit, the robot dog from the original Battlestar Galactica.

Yes, I had to Google the name of the dog from the series, geek credentials don't quite run that deep.

Shit, Joseph I did not know :(

You should come over sometime and hang.

Joseph B. Hewitt IV said...

What are you trying to say Tim... and what is that rope for?

Wow. You should have come back when you were asked to. I hope you didn't get hurt in the accident. Eric #1 says hello and so do the kids. Miss you lots.

See, the rest of you thought I made that stuff up about numbering the Erics. I think it was up to seven at one point, though by that point I may have been stretching the term "friend." I mean I didn't actually hang out with the guy who worked at Wienerschnitzel, but I like to think that the bond between a man and the guy who works the drive-thru window is an important one.
