Stressed out and Crazy

in 2009,Werty,WTF?

I have been very stressed out. There has been a lot going on lately, and it has been forever since I updated.

It seems like I am no longer in control of my days. They just come and go and stack a large pile of whatever it is in front of me. Enough to keep me busy or annoyed and with my “eye no longer on the prize”.

At this point I do not even know what the prize is. Is there even one? It seems like the harder you work, the more you get fucked over. At least as far as taxes are concerned.

Speaking of taxes, where is my refund? This is the first year I owned a home. If you can call it that. More like a money trap, but aren’t they all? Buyer beware. Do not buy a condo. Why did no one warn me? Thanks a lot pal.

As far as the recession is concerned (can I call it a recessions?), what is really going on with that? I followed the markets and gave up. I made some quick money (like $200 – go me) and got out while it was still liquid. Unemployment is at an all time high, but it seems like spending may be only slightly lower. I wish I owned a credit card company.

Beyond this stuff it seems like it is finally starting to warm up. I guess that is a good thing. I will miss the weather as my excuse to be anti social. I guess I will need to resort to being fat, old, bald and lazy 😉

Since we are talking about age, happy birthday to my grandma and gramps… 93 and 95.

Outside of that, I am going to Europe for a 2 weeks in May- June, anyone want to come with or meet up?

Thinking of extending things longer and doing some traveling. Figure I may as well go for longer since I will taking the time off, and probably taking on a pretty large new project/business in the next few months. So it may be some “well deserved” rest until the next stressful part of my life.

I also got an iPhone. Lol.

Loyal reader, what is up with you?

iPhone is pretty amazing, but it lacks some features. The apps are awesome, typing takes some getting used to. If it had a V I would probably marry the next generation of it.

Yeah how was Ireland?

Not sure where all I am going, may try and stretch things out longer. Right now it is may 26 – june 7th, and the places on the iten are London, Manchester, Birmingham, Glasgow, Helsinki. I would like to head to Amsterdam, and maybe Belgium and Germany as well. Need to see how timing and $$$ are working out.

Also iPhone will be tits for travel OUTSIDE of making phone calls or using data. For roaming ATT is worthless. I was on tmobile before and data was awesome overseas. Like $20 a month. iphone can cost like $10 to watch a youtube video.

Martijn, will do. You wanna come along for a leg of the trip, or you want me to hit ya up on your own turf?

Tmobile is great. if you can hack the phone, switch it over to that be careful not to brick the phone though. im deff not a fan of the iphone. have you tried the G1 by htc for tmobile

— resort to being fat —

I am on the program. Are you getting on the program Trose?

Have a fun trip Werty. Be safe, and try to go with someone a bit less crazy this time 🙂

May your days be filled with a rainbow of colors and some of the most unique brownies you ever ate. And don’t sit on the seat, or trust the public transit system in Paris late at night! 😉

Hi George,

I hope you enjoyed your stay in Manchester, not sure how did you handle the stay in Glasgow and London after wards. Anyway, next time when you hit Manchester, at least take out 2 days so that we can move around easily.

Also can you post my bowling video? lol
