Good Tuesday morning fellers.

We have had some great weather in the recent weeks. Our pilot is racking up some crazy hours. We are overdue for an oil change again. We can hardly make it a week on an oil change. He landed in Mena Arkansas yesterday for fuel and the battery is dead. Hopefully he got a jump start. Mena AR is not a great place to spend the night.

G may have gotten nookienapped by the bootyless caller.

Mena doesn't have any quaint little places for the winding stair tourist to stay?

I am wondering what has happened to all the guys in Europe. It has been a while since we heard from the fluffer.

I think doc fluffer has a real excuse... He has a family and a real job. He's busy...

I'm worried the creapin crud may have gotten G though...



I've figured out my relationship troubles... I seem to always get place on the wrong ladder....

That website is total BS. Contrived to give guys justification for feeling like sorry-asses. And women justification for making unjust decisions with men.

I've decided that I owe my cousin something... He dropped out of HS, can't hold a job, might be going to jail, just had a baby, etc. Just a general f'up. The nice thing about all this is that I don't have to try too hard at all for all the family to think I'm awesome! I mean in comparison I'm in college working on a professional degree, have held a job for 7mos at this point and don't have a baby on the way!

Sid, you don't owe him anything. You are the normal one. Your cousin sounds like just a waste of carbon.

When I was growing up I remember the Christmas cards from a family we knew. The condensed version is their daughter worked as a model for years, went to law school and is now a lawyer then started her own company and is a multi-millionaire. The son was the quarterback for the HS football team and they won the state championship the two years he was the starter. He went to some Ivy League college, and was the top of his class. He went to medical school is now a heart surgeon.

My point is though.... When I make a minor f'up no one in the family gets too bent out of shape....

You are grateful to have someone else to be the black sheep in your family.

I'm looked down on in my family because I am bearded, overweight, not married, don't go to the right church, and don't have 15 kids by now. Oh, and I spend way to much on my cars because I have a Porsche.

Yet I am the only one to step up and take care of my brother with MS (even bought a house that was wheelchair accessible ) AND our mother after her stoke and now with alzheimers (it is very depressing to watch a parent just kind of fade away).

NO WORRIES SID, I'm still here!!

Just been busy the last couple of days, out of the office on Friday and Monday, didn't spent much time online during the weekend and today I had an advanced functions and pivottables Excell course all day....

But not to worry, I'm never far away.

And Sid, don't worry too much about your cousin. Help him where you can, but don't feel guilty or anything. I have a similar family member. I don't know about your cousin but some people just don't have it in them, can't bring themselves to seriously commit to anything, work, sport, family, you name it.
We"re not all the same, some of us are more likely to have a happy/succesful future than others, that is life my friend.

I remember when I wrote the check for my 911. I wasted three checks trying to figure out how to get the words for the amount to fit.

The only thing that worries me about my cousin is that he will somehow manage to sap more money out of my grandparents.... They already bought him a VERY nice XPS laptop... Trying to help him start in school.... UHHH WTF? No one has bought me anything like that....

I really would like it if he just skipped town... He's more of a thorn in everyones side than anything else.

On the phone with the Gas co... realized I had never seen a bill since June. Apparently they had never gotten it transferred from my landlord... Why he hadnt said anything I have no idea....

They have the WORST online stuff ever...

Back at my first house I noticed that my gas bill was very low. I just kept forgetting to call them to suggest the meter might be not be working. One day a letter showed up and thay wanted me to call them to set up a time to swap the meter. I was real busy and just kept forgetting. I made it through winter before thay came and pounded on my door one morning. My gas bill was just the minimum service charge each month all winter.
