Twice Bitten

So I was dating someone for awhile. It didn't work out. Like the ex-spouse, I did all the work and got nothing in return. Maybe I should plan a career as a crazy old cat lady. I already have the cats.

Anyway, today marks the 14th anniversary of the OKC bombing. Rest in peace to the 168 victims of Tim McVeigh and Terry Nichols. Despite the current government's fear, I fear "right wing extremists" less than I do Muslim terrorists. Let's not forget that McVeigh claimed that his reason for what he did was in response to what happened in Waco. A government that appears oppressive to its people tends to create the Tim McVeighs.

I really need to post more

I've been busy trying to establish my own firm. Business is slow. Seems like people are staying together out of necessity. Too bad my ex had to bail out 'cause I'm sure his life sucks more than mine. Although, he did pop by the house the other night at midnight (with his son in tow on a school night) to drop off a cookbook I had been asking for for over a year. He shoved it in the mailbox. He's just trying to get me to drop the contempt application which is set for hearing on the 21st of this month. That and to see if I had really moved back into the house.

Anyhoo, I promise to post more at this site.

The "O" and Diplomacy

The PM of the UK visited the US last week. In keeping with tradition, PM Brown gave the "O" a first edition of volume one of Churchill's biography, a pen holder made from the timbers of a slave ship, and a framed commission of the HMS Resolute. What did O give him? 25 DVDs. I kid you not.

However, what some may not know is that the DVD collection was the winner out of a number of suggestions. Here are some of gifts that were considered but rejected.

  1. Olive Garden Gift Card ($50)

  2. Ronco Showtime Grillwave

  3. A set of Ginsu Knives

  4. 2 Tickets to a Monster Truck rally

  5. A garden gnome

  6. "Hope" and "Change" bumper stickers

  7. Rock Band 2 for WII

  8. A 6" Action Figure of "O"

  9. CD of The Massacre by 50 Cent

  10. 3 month membership to the Organic Fruit Club

The Economy

Well I fell victim to the economy woes a few weeks ago. I was laid off from my $100k/year job without a severance package. The boss said he'd help me out but I haven't seen any help yet. Meanwhile, I've filed for unemployment and started my own firm. Yes, I know this isn't the time to launch a new venture but since I'm over 40 with health issues, the chance of a firm hiring me are slim to none. I pointed that fact out to my former boss.

At any rate, my former spouse continues to stiff me on the money he owes me. I was awarded $15k in the divorce for launching his business. A mere pittance considering I'm the reason the place got off the ground. Meanwhile, he has a new girlfriend whom he says has a, "special needs child that she's just WONDERFUL with." Oh yeah, that'll last until he has to do anything involving that child then he'll be out the door like before.

More News From the Front

So I saw the ex-spouse when I had to drop his son off at the pub. First, I've never seen him look so thin and old. I guess the bar life isn't agreeing with him. He still looked shell-shocked from his brief stint at the county lock-up. I nearly felt sorry for him. Nearly.

Anyway, he said he'd start paying me $50/week towards what he owes me. By my calculations, he'll have to do that every week for the next 7 1/2 years. I did get the first payment last Friday in my mailbox so that's a start. In fact, I was feeling quite charitable towards him until today.

Today, I got a call from Bud. He called me to tell me about the conversation he had with someone at my old church. This lady claims that the information I posted on the church blog about the pastor's severance package came from Alice (the DCE). Bud assured her that I had not spoken to Alice in at least a year, which I confirmed. I then said that she never even like me and I didn't care much for her. That's when Bud dropped the bomb.

When Bud was doing the electrical work for the pub (i.e. long before I had a clue what my former spouse was up to), Spud (my ex) told him that he'd like to see Alice's tits. I kid you not. My then-spouse talking about another woman that way while I'm busting my butt helping him with his "dream." What a freakin' pathetic loser. It was all I could do today to not email him and asked if he ever got that chance.

A Song for the EX

Appropriate, I think.
