    Boss: "Now is the time for new fresh ideas!"

    The worst part is if they rebut your "it can't be done" argument with "you're a professional, I'm sure yo can do it!" when your opinion as a professional is that his idea can't be done with the time we have. I mean there's opportunities and then there's bosses who don't understand how deadlines work and can't make up their mind, so PxelSlayer I feel your pain....

    Oh, if I should whine! About two months ago I signed up to a painting class that is supposed to start next week, and I waited and waited when they might send the bill and other documents for stuff you had to buy, as those letters are usually sent at least two weeks before the course starts and eventually I started thinking that the course had been cancelled.
    Last Friday it registered my new address and made so that all my mail will be sent to my new apartment starting from this week's Monday. Yesterday I went to check it and found the bill letter from the new house only to find out that the due date for paying the course had been on this week's TUESDAY. So they gave people only one day (or less, if the letter actually arrived to the house on Tuesday) to pay the bill when all bills have at least week's time to be paid!

    Argh! I paid it and there will be no extra fees for being late but now I have to run around Helsinki on Saturday to buy all the crap I need for the course that starts on next Monday, all while all my stuff will be unpacked in the new apartment because during the course I don't have time to go buy furniture, sheesh.

    An awesome job opportunity that I thought was just about in the bag has completely fallen through due to budget issues. And I don't know if I can stay here where I'm living, waiting for someone to move away for the job to possible open up again. I don't know what to do now, since my two back up plans aren't looking so hot either.

    I just noticed my left thumb might be slightly longer than my right. It's more flexible, too. Huh.

    I really should start learning to use my left. No dexterity at all with that thing.

    need a new cellphone since my 4 yr old one died. I need new glasses, need a new pair of shoes...but my room also needs a cool lava lamp my impulses always tell me to manage my money like a 12 yr old , scientists should really get going with that money tree already

    I don´t think ill get a smartphone, it just seems like a big waste of money for me right now. I just need to text and call, no plans, no fees, simple and cheap

    I went to an alehouse for a friends birthday and all the beer was that gross microbrew hype. I think they're just rebottling skunked schlitz and charging 1000% more for it.

    Congrats Black Spot.

    Had a terrible end to the weekend. Was storming all day here today, driving
    back from my inlaws we were on a coastal road with a cliff face on our left and
    the ocean on our right, with no street lights. I hit a rock that had been dislodged
    from the mountain side by the rain.

    It tore my front left wheel to shreds and buckled my mag. I pulled off, no
    lights and no torch. (My stupidity) I could not see much at all. Luckily my
    brother in law was close by, so I called him to bring some light with him
    so I could put my spare on.

    I went to get something out the car, my wife was standing next to it looking
    at the shredded wheel, when a car pulled up behind us. I got out of the car
    and they suddenly drove off...

    My bro in law arrived soon after and shone his car lights on the situation. Damage
    to my front bumper as well. Spare was completely flat of course.

    Most irritating thing is I just had my alignment and balancing done last week. It's
    all gone to shit now. I am just hoping the damage is not too extensive to the steering.

    Still, as my wife kept reminded me. It could have been worse. Got home safe, it's
    a 45 minute drive, but I took it slow.

    I'm having like, the worst cold I've ever had this year and it's summer and it's tough to beat. Luckily my class has ended, but I was hoping to be more productive instead of feeling useless. And my period is also coming soon. Jesus.

    Where the hell do those clients get off. I was offered a comic job and it went like this.

    Client-Can you do it for $100

    Me- 100 a page can work.

    Client- No for the whole comic

    Me- Ad two zeros to your page count and that's how much it's going to cost.

    Client- But I only have 100

    Me- So you only want one page?

    I never heard from him again.

    Well he wanted to split the profits. But honestly I didn't think the script screamed out best seller and it didn't seem like it would be much fun to draw.

    I asked the admin to put up a warning in flashing red neon
    on the homepage.

    It's going to be in comic sans though...sorry!

    Maybe your Adobe Flash Player is corrupted and you need to reinstall it? Blip and youtube both run on that program, and so do alot of internet ads.

    So I got a psychiatric evaluation today just because my insurance would cover it.

    The doctor said that there was no need to ever see him again.

    At least I had something interesting to do today.

    I don't know what it is..... if it's my taste buds or something......
    But... I ... hate.... ... beer.....
    I mean I'll drink it if I'm at a party and there's nothing else.
    But every kind, every brand, it all tastes like Ass to me.
    I will never understand when people casually drink a beer.
    They're not even trying to get drunk or buzzed. For the taste.
    It seems to be a big thing too. I can't drink something that tastes like ass
    with any intention besides getting a bit drunk. It's not an acquired taste either for me.
    I've drank plenty. Never tastes less like ass.

    It's funny. I can handle any other alcohol. Rum, Scotch, Whiskey, Tequila.
    But beer I have to drink too much ass to get even buzzed.

    I don´t like beer either, i have tried a few kinds, but won´t do, not just because of the taste, they never settle well. I always feel bloated and very nauseated afterwards.

    I am not a drinker anyways, and i realized last weekend that if you haven´t tried alcohol for a long time even a couple drinks can go straight to your head, is like a muscle, if you don´t use it you´ll lose it.

    I should of posted sooner but I keep forgetting,I've fixed my video problems,essentially all I had to do was disable Chrome's built in flash player and manually install the flash player from their website.Type in chrome://plugins/ into the addess bar and it will bring up a list of plug-ins,flash should be there.

    I had no idea Dick Blick had physical stores! One's opening up downtown.

    Hopefully it's better than the Utrecht that opened up a few years back.

    EDIT: Yep, looks like I'll finally be learning Flash. Because really, it's just another Adobe program. And I'll have alot to gain from learning it. Still doubt I'll ever personally use it, but whatever...
