Better than a Sharp Stick in the Eye!

- The very idea that I might be a real person should bother you a large amount. Good things happen to bad people and the other way around. I can say that weird things happen to weird people, so it all balances out in the end. I'm not sure what happens to real people, but if you put a bunch of them together you seen to get an MTV show, so that really doesn't bode well for society. My current hero is the big plastic-headed Burger King from the commercials. His creepiness and subtle evil are an inspiration to all of us with over-sized plastic heads that one day hope to be the monarch figurehead (hur hur) of a Burger Empire.

I've been underemployed before, though neve this underemployed.
I make less money than I did 15 years ago when I made slightly higher price-point food to pay my way through college.
6 and 1/2 years of college resulted in me living in someone else's house and generally being worse off… Read full post »

Got bogged down with a lot of stuff today. Won't even have time to read OS.
I'll edit and post the next segment tuesday.
I'm thinking about getting 1 day ahead next weekend, so I can't get derailed this easily.

Yet again, I'm going to miss a Friday deadline.
While editing today's piece I realized I was going in the wrong direction. I'm replotting a bunch of stuff and it used up my time (and more) for today.
Most of my extra-extra time today was used bumming around OS… Read full post »

Before I start on my hour of writing today (for tomorrow's first segment of the serial) I wanted to explain a little history of the characters I'm using.
None of this is spoilers in any way, or actual story/character information, more of a reasoning of the process.

As, I've said a lot of times before, in a lot of places... I don't consider myself a writer. I don't fit the definition that I have seen in countless classes and books.
On the other hand, spending massive amounts of time (daily) look for work while sitting in… Read full post »

I'm unemployed. That's a different story.
In my hope to find some kind of new employment I try to leave no possibilities unexplored. My brother-in-lawgave me the web address of the main U.S. Government job system. Maybe some of you will have better luck with it than I have. Mostly I… Read full post »
