Yesterday, Scott Jenn and I went to Mandarin House. Was good. Hampton Mall is very sad though.
Today, Scott talked to Harvey at GM. Good and bad news. Scott and I are near the top of “the List”, but there will not be any hirings in the near future. I presume probably until around next union negotiation, in October 06.
eBay seriously sucks. I am never selling on it again, and probably never buying either. I don’t know if I should blame the buyers for trying to screw me, UPS for shipping mishaps, or just bad luck. After 4 bitching buyers and 2 account hackings, including 1 charging up a lot of fees, I give up.
Still no sign of the now infamous “Me”. I am offering a reward if you have any information. I don’t know what the reward is, but I’ll find something.
OK, that’s plenty for now.
The good news it’s only 110˚ in the shade.
The bad news is there isn’t any shade.
OK, so I sell my eBay stuff, ship it out, leave to Tawas, come home, have an e-mail, crap. Guy claims CD is horribly scratched and won’t load, respond immediately or I get negative. My first thought is enough of this shit, screw you and I quit eBay. I calm down a little, ask if he has tried using a disk cleaner and if computer meets full system requirements on box, specifically that it is a mac CD and isn’t compatible with Windows. Haven’t heard from him in 2 days now. Isn’t it fun when someone expects you to be really fast but takes their own sweet time? Bastards.
I got a headache Thursday night around 1:00 AM. It went away about 2 hours ago. Last night was the worst of it. That was just plain wrong. I actually wonder if it was wisdom teeth or not, as it seemed a bit too far up to be, but I don’t know.
Did some fun looking today, on locomotive engines. GM’s biggest car engine, for the most part, is the 502 cu. in. V8, the Vortec 8100, used in full sized trucks. GM-EMD’s (GM Electro-motive division) biggest engine is the “H” series 16V265. It has a displacement of 1010 cu. in. (16.6 liter) PER CYLINDER! That means each of the engine’s 16 cylinders is bigger than TWO 8100s! It has a total displacement of 16160 cu. in. (265.6 liter). The main bearing is 10.24″ (260 mm), compared to about 2″ in a standard engine. The engine also has two very large turbo chargers, and produces over 6000 horsepower. I can’t find a torque number, but I’m sure it’s insane.
And in closing, WHO THE HELL IS “ME”!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That’s when I swore that someday, someday I would get outta that basement and travel to a magical, far away place, where the sun is always shining and the air smells like warm root beer, and the towels are oh so fluffy! Where the shriners and the lepers play their ukuleles all day long, and anyone on the street will gladly shave your back for a nickel!
Hey “Me”, you haven’t responded yet.
First up, er, Second up: Wednesday’s update will either be rather early or very late (before 12pm Wed. or after 2pm Thurs.). This is due to me being out of town. Details will come either Thur. or Saturday.
One year ago today Jenn and I first met, at her dorm at SVSU. Yay!
The fun unmentionable is back. Should last about a month, maybe 2. I’m happy that I got it, but sad cause of what is means. You have no clue what I’m talking about though. That makes it more fun though, for me anyway.
I am still unsure of what is happening with the website.
I received payment for my 3rd item on eBay. Is exciting.
I think that’s it.

OK, after 3 days of searching, I must ask who the hell is “Me”? This is all I know
Has Win XP
In Bay City area
Charter cable modem
Early bird (or very night owl)
Is not Scott, Jenn, my Mom, John, Troy, Sarah, or a friend of any of them.
and I know IP address, but not a lot of help.
Anyway, PLEASE comment with a NAME, or e-mail me, PLEASE!
So what else…
I sold more stuff on eBay.
I have decided I can not be trusted. I get bored and need something to look at online, and ended up doing way too much research on DV camcorders. Bad idea. As my mom would say “NOOOOO”.
Ok, thats all. I just want to know who “Me” is. If you tell me, I will put the school assignments back up. 🙂
I can’t think of a quote, too stuck on the “Me” thing.
A few things to make note of
1) Scott, why do you hate Zales?
2) I will be leaving tonight for Alpena, so I will be unavailable until at least Saturday evening.
3) The guy that bought my video card on eBay (the videocard caused problems already when the last person who won it refused to pay) requested his money back claiming it was “old and worn out”. No, I am not refunding.
That’s all. News on the trip and a Christmas wrap-up Sunday evening.
I might have a job, as a repair technician at Advanced Wireless. I turned in my resume yesterday and they called a few hours later for an interview. Problem is I am going to Alpena with Jenn tomorrow and wont be back till Thursday night, and of course they wanted the interview tomorrow. They were supposedly going to try and get me in today, but never called. Oh well, maybe Friday or Saturday.
We rented Mr. Deeds again a few days ago. The first time we rented it we forgot to watch it. This time, we tried to watch it, but the disk wouldn’t work right. Not in my ibook, my PS2, or our DVD player. Talk about a bad disk.
As I said above, I will be in Alpena from about noon Wednesday to 6 or 7 pm on Thursday.
Jenn and I went to the animal shelter and were looking at the dogs. In one cage there was a little black ball hiding in the corner, and deja vu immediately set in. As it got up and walked toward us, it got worse. You see, Molly was a little black ball in the corner when we got her. This new ball is nearly a twin. A black lab, about 8 to 12 weeks old, and even has the white spot on its chest. This one is a boy though, and no spots on the paws. It would be nice, but we can’t handle another Molly.
I sold one of my 3 auctions on eBay, and shipped it out today. The other 2 are relisted until next Tuesday I believe. The freaking moron that wouldn’t pay has now left negative feedback claiming they did pay and I never shipped, so now I am fighting with eBay to get the comment pulled. Damn morons, screwing it up for the rest of us. Oh well, I am trying not to think about that, cause it pisses me off.
Anyway, I think that’s it. I’ll see you all Friday, with the post-turkey day update.
I’m bored cause Nick is watching CSI and I didn’t pay attention to the first half, so I am blogging for him. He got one of his ebay payments today, so that was exciting, but then the one item didn’t sell again, so that was sucky.
John kerry kept saying, “I HAVE A PLAN, I HAVE A PLAN!” but never actually said what the plan was. Well, Nick found the “plan” on his website but it was really vague. Only two weeks and one day till the election, do you know who you are voting for? I can’t vote cause I’m from out of town and registered in a township two and half hours a way, but you better vote damn it.
Nick has an apple car that went on ebay for $160.00, three times what he paid. But hes gonna keep it, cause frankly the apple car ROCKS!
Oh yeah by the way, in case you haven’t noticed, it is freaking cold out.
If you are bored on Sunday nights, you have to watch Desperate Housewives on ABC. I don’t really know what it is about the show but it is really good. Its a new series that started three weeks ago, and its about all the twistedness of suburbean life. Its good, trust me, watch it.
till nick posts on Thursday
