IM A STUPID MORON WITH AN UGLY FACE AND A BIG BUTT AND MY BUTT SMELLS AND I LIKE TO KISS MY OWN BUTT

Gravy Boat 2k

I was having a pretty good day, but at about 9pm on the way home I stopped at a red light and witnessed a drug deal on a brightly-lit city street across from a McDonalds.


It went as follows:

There's a black SUV stopped crookedly, halfway into the street. On the sidewalk, two 14 year olds walk up to a fat, old, white dude in a wife-beater sitting on church steps, exchange pleasantries, and quickly get away from him before pretending like they're just walking along the sidewalk normally. A guy (Dad) walks out of the SUV to the boys motioning a "where were you at, I was so worried!" Most likely saying it too; I couldn't hear because I had music on and windows up). The light changed and the last thing I saw in my rearview was Dad & kids getting into the SUV and quickly driving off around the corner--the church being *conveniently* located on a corner.

(I'm going to guess here that Dad dropped kids off a few blocks away and the kids were "just hanging out around the McDonalds"; and, if asked, Dad "came to rescue his lost kids" as alibis.)

Dad's smart (read: piece of poo poo) because he won't get caught because it's the kids with the drugs, and if there's a cop there while Dad is parked near the deal, Dad can just drive off. And, the kids' records will be expunged when they're 18!


We have a saying around here, "Shitview Park*, never change"

But in reality, we're all happy to see the once work-of-art buildings turned halfway houses turn back into works of art. They recently installed a hipster coffee shop. It's 100 feet away from said drug deal but during the day it's probably ok.... Though it's still 100 feet in the other direction from the methadone clinic (they're only open on tuesdays iirc). (They're run by CVS!)


*it's not actually actually called Shitview Park I'm masking the name

it's actually Shitview DRUG Park

The buildings around here that are now halfway houses were made between 1900-1910~ish so each side of the building is meticulously designed, decorated, and built, and they are so beautiful and they have loving gargoyles. GARGOYLES.

They turned the one closest to me into expensive rentals, I REALLY hope they make the one across from the McDonalds/drug deal place into nice apartments because those gargoyles are amazing and I would be so loving depressed to see them go.


This fits into the thread topic because breaking down historic architecture, or destroying it by not using it for its full potential, like making it a poorly-run, decrepit halfway house, is poo poo, and thinking about it has made me really depressed because I love old buildings.

I'm still recovering from a horrific bout of cystic acne that came completely out of loving nowhere last week. I've just now started birth control pills again and have some topical clindamycin to kill off the bacteria, but it's really pissing me off because I've dedicated so much time over the past six months to trying to take better care of my skin only for my hormones to come in and gently caress it all up in the span of two days.

So does my three year old, so I'm home from work, trying not to die too hard on account of him.

Earlier I coughed and aspirated dry paracetamol dust. I guess a capsule got lodged in my throat, opened up and when I coughed, blew it all out like I was some kind of cursed pharmacutical mummy. It was... interesting. It also then set off a bunch of vomiting that brought up everything I was so proud of keeping down this morning.

I feel like it would be managable if not for this godawful headache, just make it stop jesus gently caress

I have a major test in one of my worst classes on Thursday, a quiz on Monday, and a test in another class on Tuesday, all the while I'm searching for co-op/internship positions so I can escape my retail job. The job search feels somewhat futile because I have my doubts on whether or not I'll get anything.

After 6 months of being dicked around by our buyer, we are finally, assuming he doesn't twist the knife once more, all delays have been because of him, moving house on Friday. All of our deposit and fees are to be paid from the sale of our current place. We must hand in our keys on Friday yet due to his procrastination we may not get the keys to our new property until 3pm that day.

Our solicitor wants her 8 grand on Thursday instead of Friday when we will actually have that money, cue insane scrabble for funds, I've had to borrow 2 thousand from my parents which i am very lucky they were able to lend.

And despite our signed contract the fuckbag solicitor's fees have magically gone up by 300 pounds. As have our estate agent fees. And Halifax are determined we have paid 500 less on our mortgage than we actually have.

So basically gently caress everything

The last month has been poo poo. I'm sick and I don't know why. Joint pain everywhere, muscle pain everywhere, fatigue, loss of appetite, trouble walking, tingling in feet and hands, delayed motor skills, headaches, arms feel too heavy to lift sometimes, blah blah blah. Body is not working and it sucks. Last week I couldnt even get oit of bed. All my tests so far say I'm perfectly healthy. Doing another big round of blood tests tomorrow.

Have they tested for Lyme disease or mononucleosis? My wife had mono, and those were some of the symptoms she had during it, and she's still dealing with some of it, because her doctor kept saying "it can't be mono." Mono's a cheap, easy test, and they can add it on easy to your blood tests that are going on tomorrow.

I'm trying to get tested for Lyme but since I don't remember a bite or rash it's really hard to get it done. I don't know what the problem is and why they refuse when I ask. Like just do it. Who cares if I remember getting a rash or not? Didn't think of mono though. My coworker was saying I should forge my test sheet and add stuff according to advice in the chronic pain thread.

Don't forge anything, just tell the doctor "you know, I think I do remember a rash."

So it seems like I'm over the flu - but that fucker left me with what I think is Satans own chest infection, so yay. Coughing up thick green slime all day and night is just super fun you guys.

So I've missed 2 weeks of work now, and this fuckery means I'm not going to get paid next week because I've already blown through all my sick leave (between time off sick for myself and my kids). But daycare will still want their weekly $400, so I don't know what I'm going to do about that.

Daughter of a family friend got married yesterday in my hometown, when I got the invite in June I told my parents my wife and I weren't coming because it's 800 miles away and taking a day off of work is a huge pain in the rear end right now (all our vacation days tied up in a year-end trip we've been planning since this time last year). They say it's OK and that they're expecting to go by themselves since my brother and sister both live far away too.

Go on FB last night and see a picture of the four of them at the wedding. Fuckers could've at least told me you were planning to go, I would've tried harder to make something work. Now I feel like a bad son and also the black sheep (even more than I felt like it before)

I was supposed to be on this work contract for six months (with the possibility of permanent employment afterward), but just got told that the company "is all caught up" on the work they needed me to do so they're terminating it early.

After one and a half months.

And I turned down another job offer to take this one because I thought "Oh, it's a good company, this is stable work, I have a history with them and they seem to really like the work I do, at the very least I won't be out of work over the holidays."

But nope. I guess we disagree on what the word "contract" means.

I wouldn't even be bothered if they'd told me they just needed someone to play catch-up on this project, but they really made it sound like it'd be long-term, steady work and now I feel like those fuckers lied to me.

And I have to come in every day until Friday pretending nothing's wrong, oh gee I guess I'm leaving a bit earlier than I thought, well that's okay, I'm really grateful for the opportunity and certainly not about to burn any bridges with one of the largest employers in the area, aren't you guys great.

This week is going to suck.

That's awful, Parasol Prophet.

It seems like you guys have much bigger problems than me, but I'm going to complain anyway. I was in the ER a couple nights ago for severe sciatica. A few injections and some RX pain meds later, I'm able to walk around with assistance, but it's been sketchy so far. My pain meds will run out before I get a chance to see my PCP, but I'm hoping it will have relaxed enough by then that I won't be in too much pain. Once I rule out a slipped disk, I'll be able to treat it at home (I've had sciatica for years but never this bad), but these next few days are going to be awkward. I'm going back into work tomorrow and people are going to wonder why I am limping/shuffling because I can't put any weight on my right foot. But at least I don't have any meetings until Wednesday, and it's only one and it's with my boss, who knows my situation.

I just worked sixteen hours on something I ended up loving up tremendously anyway, after working all weekend to get my poo poo to a point where I could even attempt to do the thing that I hosed up today.

Because this week wasn't already awesome enough, I just lost one of my favorite pens by having it roll off the back of my desk and get stuck between it and the cubicle wall, so there's no way to get it out without tearing apart the row of cubicles.

Luckily I already took my anxiety meds (the day started poorly), so I'm just zen enough to write it off and give my blessings to whoever finds it the next time they rearrange departments. But still. Dammit, I loved that pen.

three job rejections within the same hour got the day off to a fine start.

It's just a job, it shouldn't bother me this much, but I'm starting to feel so unemployable and worthless. I know it's because I'm in that awkward stage between being overqualified for most stuff but apparently undesirable to the traineeships I'm actually applying for, but that doesn't really help. I'm 25. I should have a career, not just a job, and I can't even manage the latter.
