let me complain first, then i'll thank u

ok i have to complain about my printer for a second...

Yes i found the HP photosmart d7160 at target for half price last year. But wow the pictures were beautiful! And what is even better, it has separate ink cartridges so if you run out of one color, you don't have to replace all of it, just what you need!

and then.

so lauren needs to print out a lot of papers for school. She prints them out in black ink only. BLACK INK ONLY! so why oh WHY does it continuously tell me that we need cyan or magenta or whatever the hell color it thinks is neccesary to print BLACK INK ONLY documents??? How the hell does 'BLACK INK ONLY' mean "black and cyan and magenta and fucking blue?" seriously? what is wrong with this picture?

okay yes i can see if she is printing documents that appear to be just black text, that for a full and rich text that just pops out of the page at you, a bit of yellow might make that text just kinda pop out at you, right? fuck you!

now the fucked up part is that if you get too low it will tell you that it can't print anymore whatsoever. how the hell are you going to tell me that i cannot print my BLACK INK ONLY documents when i run out of cyan?

  • * *

On another note... last night was awesome guys! I had such a great time, and finally got to meet (e:lilho), (e:joshua) and (e:jason), and also (e:enknot) from something other than across the room! I do have to apologize that planet earth ate my brain for such a long period of time. you guys need to start charging admission for them shits!

Thanks for the great adventure once again (e:peeps)!

poor house

well today i found out that my father and brother lost their jobs on valentines day.

apparently the company that they work for just closed the doors on them. They didn't even know until my sister in law (who works for the bank) was informed that she should not cash checks from that particular company. They were bouncing. A few inquiries later and... oh by the way, you don't have a job anymore.

Now my brother will probably find a job. But my father is about to turn 60 in a few months. Who is interested in hiring a 60 year old mechanic? not many people. its so sad i don't know what he is going to do.

It scares me to think about how horrid this economy is getting. I mean out of my nuclear family (parents, 3 brothers and myself) there are only two of us working now. And my brother is pretty sure that his plant is getting shut down soon as well.

How bad is this going to get?

I think that they made all the border crossings to Canada more difficult because they knew that half the population would be interested in ditching this stupid country, like I am right now.

here i am once again... playing on the computer when i should seriously be getting ready for work.

we got our refund check which meant we bought some things we normally wouldn't at wegmans last evening. even went for rice milk and TWO different kinds of protein/whole foods shakes. wowsers!

typing 'wowsers' just then reminded me of my old housemate steven and it made me miss him.

i had several things i was going to post about, but of course as soon as i go to do so, my mind goes a bit fuzzy.

well at any rate... i'm excited for tonight, (e:peeps) and pizza. social interaction is always a dandy experience. see ya tonight!

last night (e:lauren) and i went to our dance class and found that (!!) we got to do a floor class instead of our normal cardio dance class! as in we actually learned breakdancing moves like spinning on your back, the six step and some baby freezes. it basically was like spending an hour and a half rolling around on the floor. so awesome! I felt as though this is the part that i'vebeen waiting for. it felt so... satisfying!
i am really excited for it, and i think that we are definetely going to start going mondays AND wednesdays to class.

i am a bit sore in the shoulders today though.

i actually just heard the sound of a bird outside. haven't looked outside yet, but it gives me that warm and 'spring will come one day' feeling. hoorah for spring! one day! lol

there seems to be nothing better than procrastinating getting showered and out the door to work. I do this every morning. sit in front of the computer wayyyy tooo long and then run around like an idiot trying to get my stuff together for work.
but seriously... you can't rush estrip.

i'm very excited for tomorrow night. dance dance dance! my aunts and cuz will be showing up before we go out, as will some of lauren's friends. We are heading down to Marcellas early... as in probably 9 or 10 ish.
Please tell me that
a) the club will be open and
b) there will be a couple of people there before midnight.

i know its early but my aunties are early bar birds.

But we will be staying out all night! well maybe not all night.

three cents

my internet is working my internet is working!!! hoorah!!

so when you all go out downtown, do you typically use a DD? or call a cab? i hear that the subway closes early.... so on saturday when we go out to marcellas, i want to know if i have to remain sober enough to drive home.

my aunt and cousin are going out to marcellas too. I'm sure they have never been in a big gay dance club.

cleve auto wanted 650 dollars because they said they needed to replace all my rotors and brakes to do an inspection. they didn't mention the part on the inspection rejection paper of a light that was supposedly out.

Steve's in lockport said my front rotors were okay, my front brakes might need replacing by the summer and replaced my rear rotors and brakes for 250. And there is no lights out on my car so we have no idea what the hell that was supposed to be about.


thats right.

that was gross

Worst way to spend your day off? Sick.

Sat afternoon I left work early - i mean i could have really made a killing saturday, but I was so afraid of coughing my lung up on to somebody's shiney new verizon phone that I had to just leave.

Luckily I did because it just got worse from there. I would say I haven't felt that bad since 02 when I got the bronchitus - and even in 02 i didn't feel as though somebody had beat me all over with a rubber mallet.

Coughing, stuffed head to the point i thought my head would explode, my body ached all over, my skin hurt, my lips kept cracking every time i coughed, and i was so weak and dizzy every time i exerted energy. bad stuff.

I've decided i'm okay today - so i can go to work. i neeed to go to work. no ifs ands or buts.

We were supposed to start the floor class for breakdancing tonight but i don't want to go that far. as it is i should have been at a meeting in Lockport before work in East Aurora today. (yeah i know that totally sucks)

i have to go disinfect myself before going out into the world.
