Rock in general is dead. You know what bugs me, though? That musicians these days can freely brag about shooting other musicians in feuds and the police couldn't care less.

I would refute that statement on these grounds.

I want to kill peas, a lot. Do you know how many peas are spilled when canning them? And how hard it is to clean them up with a hose? I hate them so much now.

Well, right now I'm tired, wet, smelling like pizza, and sunburned all over.

Day's kinda sucking.

Sounds like a day at the local pool without sunblock.

actually only the sunburnt part is from the pool. the rest is having to go work at a pizza place afterwards.

Generally, after working at a pizza place you never ever want to eat pizza again. Ever.

I dunno, it just is. Too much exposure, too much of a good thing, I guess.

Not that I really can eat pizza- being a vegetarian with lactose intolerance sucks.

5.75 an hour to support a 16 year old boy's needs, plus free pizza/cinnamon rolls/brownies/drinks/etc etc etc.

I'd like it better if I liked the pizza better, but food's food.

Yay, more ranting.

So today at work I noticed that my sunburn was hurting so badly that I literally could not do anything without meeting with immense pain. After I left (I had to go back to work in 2 hours for another 5 hour shift) and bitched to my mom she took a look at it and said that it was a lot worse than she thought it was. It's been hurting so bad that all I could do all night was lay on my stomach in bed and try to sleep, but that didn't work because everytime I was asleep I'd turn over and wake up again. You know, on account of the pain.

I have to go to work tomorrow too Sad

Sounds like that sunburn is going to peel.....

I hope it gets better soon, I've been through that (being a redhead).

I think I would like a day off, just one.... but it won't happen until I go back to the US.

I've been going through the London Underground and on the train in general since 8.30 Am today. Just got back. During this time, I lost my left contact lens. Annoying in itself but not fatal as, whenever I leave the house for any length of time over a day, I always take my spare pair. The bad news is my spare left lens just will not stay in. It's the exact same prescription too.

Grrrrrrrrr.

((I'm a late stage keratoconic (corneas forming into cones instead of the normal round shape). I'm going to need corneal grafts very soon the way this is going. Even more grrrrrrr))

Hey. Anyone wondering why I was not really on yesterday, and then not on at all today?
Well here is the reason:
So we finally decided to redo the networking around the house (so that I'd have internet access in my room. Yay!). So for almost all of yesterday we were working on getting the cables running nicely through the house.
Everything finally got worked out, and I was online for a while. Whee.

Then came this morning.
I woke up, got on my computer, and was informed I had limited/no connectivity.
Namely 'no.'
I was used to this kind of crap being fake, so I waited a bit, but it didn't go away.
So I tried to repair it.
Nothing.
I tried to disable and enable the network connection manually.
Also nothing.
Restarted the computer and tried both of those again.
Nope.
Checked over the cables in my room.
Not that either.
So I determined (and rightfully so) that it wasn't my problem.
So I go the living room computer to get on it and check it.
Okay, so our living room computer is (quite frankly) a piece of crap. It's loaded with programs, not quite deleted programs, programs that don't work, and tons of stuff that just slow the already old computer down.
So I take about half an hour to get it up and running, only to have it crash when I DO succeed on getting on the internet.
It's currently sitting around dead, because the crash was pretty much fatal. FINALLY the thing dies. I'm neither surprised, nor do I care.
I DO know that the network is working... except for my computer.
So, being the non-computer/network person I am, I try and get my father to figure out the problem.
He figured it was the cables or my computer. I already knew it wasn't the case. So I bugged him about what else could cause the problem until he just picked up the router to explain something. So he looked at the router, and, lo and behold, he had put the cable for my computer in the wrong part of it. =P
Grrr. So a dead computer and a lack of 5 hours on the internet because he had a minor mistake and wouldn't bother to pick up the router before assuming I had done something on my end.

*sigh*

My freind's method of solving things can be just Kicking his computer... and it works.
works with the dashboard of our Defender (Land Rover). =).

Our Router is temperamental though. =S

I've just spent the weekend helping my dad run a cub camp...we had more than enough leaders around and everything to keep the kids supervised...and I still ended up blowing several fuses in my brain.

Shouting at kids doesn't work any more, young kids these days have some sort of immunity to being shouted at, I think it's called "Being defeaned with ipods on a daily basis."

Anyway, I've ended up losing my voice having spent so long shouting at the kids, and just generally having spent the last two days trying to control 38 young kids who can't keep still for two minutes...one of them ended up hitting another one with a massive lump of wood with nails in it...in the face!

YOUNG KIDS HAVE NO COMMON SENSE! WHAT IS WRONG WITH THEM?

I feel a little better now...

My son, let me tell you something that I learnt this year

Screaming at kids, while relieving, does not work

I had far more success with speaking very softly, so only the little bastard miscreant could hear me with

"You are now going to get out of my lesson and go and see the headmaster. You are going to explain to him precisely why I've sent you to see him. Go now."

Had a kid in tears with that.

yeah, shouting only works if you can back it up. Which, since prosecution awaits you if you try, is a bad idea.

I have much more success when I choke kids. At my work if some kid won't move out the way when I've got pizzas that need to be transported, all it takes is a good little wringing going "MOVE OUT THE FKIN WAY!!!!" and soon enough they are gone like that!

Here's my rant....

I hate walking 20 minutes to work in 100+ heat. The only thing cooling me off is the wind, which feels more like a blow dryer than a/c. By the time I get to work, I'm covered in sweat, my feet feel like they are swimming in my boots and my face has a thin film of dust and sweat all over. Dust has gathered in my eyes and I have to take the accumulation out of the corners of my eyes. I grab a cool water once I get inside. Sit down and try to cool off, by the time that happens, it's time to go outside again. I have to walk 10 minutes to get to the chow hall. Eat my food, and then walk back. I HATE the HEAT! Even when I get off work it's still 90+ outside and it's MIDNIGHT! I have to walk to the far chow hall to eat and then another 10-15 min of trudging down the long row to my trailer.

I HATE the HEAT!

Illinois----their high temperature doesn't even get up to our minimum temperature.

and ONE more thing to add to the above, I have to carry a 8lb rifle everywhere and it's black (it heats up in the sun).

And I think the dust is in my lungs. I have this permanent blob in the back of my throat, I can't cough it up, it stays there.
