eh, keeping the house can often be more trouble than it's worth, everyone wants "their" share, and of course, theirs is always larger than reality.

I'm sorry you're in that level of muck, I'll never do it again. Hopefully your new phone will both surpass and improve your experience over the old one.

Sorry you're in the muck, hopefully it will drain away soon.

Hello too Six,  I was checking on everyone with my friends phone here.  My phone is now scheduled to come in Monday, therefore it wont be too much into next week and youll see me back : )
Worry not 8ully, Im not showing my hand or putting any money into that sugar pot.  I stay now for the sake of my daughter having the same home and school.  Taking my son to the park today, weve been out of the heat.
I trust my roommate and Ill leave when Im ready.  Feeling confident in my abilities as of late.  Good to hear from you🌊

I want to get organized, but I need a filing cabinet.

I measured the desk space, and then headed to goodwill. They always have a crapload of filing cabinets in the back.

They had none today. :(

Around here, people often give away filing cabinets on Freecycle, craigslist or Nextdoor.  Have you checked those?  I'm not sure how active those groups are in your area, but it's remarkable what people will give you.  Freecycle is often a good source as you can ask if you don't see an offer and people will respond.

I'm debating whether to go back to sleep or just throw in the towel and wake up for real.

I used to have a skateboard I kept around for moving large things, I no longer have it or a car, so Goodwill has essentially become my one stop shop.

Thank you for reminding me of those options though.

Got my new phone in.  Also started by new job this weekend.  Little bartending in a nice town with few people, the people have been nice and the tips are good. So, still working two jobs.

Yes, I'll be on more.  Just been very busy this summer, roommates and moms insanity finally held at bay.  She has taken up staying in illinois and collecting rent, so I have the place to myself despite her ownership.  I dont mind paying the money to have it this way.

Roommate's computer just got bricked by Windows Update and mine is at 40% downloaded.

This may be a bon voyage situation, so I thought I'd post.

golly windows update.


Wow, now actions are taking forever, and the task bar is white, and I can't change it. (I previously had it blue. RIP XP!)

What a fantastic addition to the real windows lifestyle. Or whatever the poo they're calling it.

[UPDATE: I finally got my computer to stop emulating a space heater, I made a thread about it over in computer]

I still haven't replaced my iMac.  I'm working with this lame little MacbookAir.  The keyboard and trackpad are awful.  It's able to do stuff.  It's lightweight and portable.  The HD is relatively small.

But it works.  And that's a whole lot better than no computer at all.  I'm just waiting to see how the money situation shakes out before I take the plunge.  Maybe I should go on a game show and see if I can win enough to replace it.  Has anyone ever been on a game show?  There's a woman at my school who went on Wheel of Fortune.  She won a bit of money and decided to go into accounting so she'd be better able to figure out how best to make it work for her.

The SEALS are invading the poo out of Coronado right now.

Reminds me of the people who complain about airport noise after they buy a home near an airport.

But they've got choppers, machine guns, I think they're even having jets strafe by. Honestly, I think they're intentionally wrecking barrels, the sustained fire is epic.

The Navy can be noisy.  I can remember on Saturday afternoons in Annapolis, they'd let them out of the Academy in their dress whites.  The streets looked like there was a blizzard of young men.

I tried to steer clear of them.  Apparently sometimes marines go to the Academy for their education.  I don't think there is a separate academy for marines.  Annapolis isn't that large.  A few guys in white suits can make a big impact.

8ully, just get a cheap cellphone, and never fall off please.  I'd hate not hearing from ya.  My Dell is still working, just no cable and I never bought the wifi piece..  cheap girl was.
School and therapies have started.  I'm on about 4 part time/seasonal jobs.  Sorry I've been absent.

You can get wifi adapters pretty cheap, I think I paid $15 for mine. It was some logistics thing where target wanted you to order online then pick up in-store.

Or it was attempted brainwashing to get me to do that. I haven't shopped at target since, SUCKAS!

Something keeps exploding nearby. Well, "keeps" being "twice" and then there is a three second power outage. I've got $15 in cash which is earmarked for bus money, but I may need to buy an ice chest and fill it with drinks.

2011 was no joke, that outage SUCKED.

I used to just play roms on my PSP, but the PSP I have now blocks roms. :(

[6:24 UPDATE]

Power is fine. Still, dang. I went and bought some soda. No ice chest tho. I used to have a really nice one :(   It was from the pre-cheap everything days. It had thickass walls and a solid lid. I don't think I own anything as solid as that cooler was.

Grandma sold it at a garage sale to be a madam. I am so glad she is on the East Coast.
