|Could not think of a post name that didn't sound dramatic...
Well...it seems like my time here in illinois is limited at best. The people I live with need the room I have (for EXTREMELY important reasons, I'm not just being chucked to the curb) and right now it seems my only option besides homelessness is to move in with family in Las Vegas.
I am not thrilled by this at all.
But I'm even less thrilled by the possibility of homelessness so I'm going to do what I gotta. I'll be here at least through the 5th of october, so if anyone would like to see me before I leave then it'll have to be before then. While I'd very much like to stay here where all my friends are, I just haven't been able to manage to land a job yet that pays a living wage, and no job means no home here. I'm keeping this brief since there's realy not much to say, although if someone has an awesome solution that keeps me here in Illinois I'm all ears. Otherwise...well, I can be reached here on LJ or those who have my cell can call me (if you need my phone number post here and I'll email it to you.)

Things are going fairly decent in Aurora...I've been working, it's a seasonal job at Blackberry Farms where I work as an Interprator (I dress up in vaguely period clothing and teach about pioneer history). It's minimum wage but sure beats real work ;)
Oh, and I now play World of Warcraft....(no comments from the peanut gallery, *coughlimitercough*). I know I'm way behind the curve on this one but it's still fun for me.
Mostly I just wanted to post 'cause I haven't in a while.

|Emergency me begging for help
Okay, this post isn't actually from Emergency me, it's just plain old me. But it is a semi-emergency! I need to be moved out this weekend, either saturday or sunday. I currently have no way to move my stuff...I asked Dewfreak already but he is going to be out of town and is very likely not to be able to help at all (he mentioned a slim chance on sunday but no promises). I need some help with someone who has a van/truck type vehicle. Something big enough to move a futon (Most of my other stuff is all in plastic tubs). The big kicker is....I'm moving to Aurora. Now I can appreciate that this is a very big favor to be asking and all, and would owe whomever big time if they could help me out. I should be able to move most of the stuff myself, I might need help with the futon frame though. (Once we're there the people I'm moving in with should be able to help me from there.)
Thanks in advance.

|Failed saving through versus asshole...
Now, I could write this article with out being nearly so wordy, so here goes.
Hi, I like to think I'm an iconoclast but the truth is I'm just a pretentious little ass with a sneer permanently affixed to my face. Boy, I sure get some mad jollies over pissing on someone after they're dead! Oh, and everything that *I PERSONALLY* don't like about gaming was the result of Dungeons and Dragons and since my opinion is much superior to the plebians, I must bestow my widom upon them. Gurps roolz!
See how easy it was?

|Tonight, Friday the 5th
Hey, I know this is kinda weird for me to ask, but...is anything going on at all tonight? Especially in the realm of something I could potentially get to? Scott and Aimee have someplace to be and I was hoping to not be home alone tonight.

I know I asked a few folks to help with my resume...here's what I've got so far, it's pretty lousy but at least it's something, right? I've got a job lead so hopefully I can wrangle up something decent.http://www.mediafire.com/?byp4njpjrgj

|No job yet....
But I'm feeling weirdly optimistic...hope my feelings are correct, as I really need to start making money, not just to pay Limiter and Skulde back for all the generosity they've given me. So hopefully optimism won't turn out to be just a Red Herring (wasn't that supposed to be Communism anyways?)
|Wednesday, June 20th, 2007|
Can anyone offer a hand in writing a resume? I haven't done one in so long that I'm rather rusty. I'd offer dinner or suchlike in repayment, but..you'd have to wait until I had money again.

|It's about time...
It's sad that they had to sue just to get this done. The general consensus was that the Va would have eventually come around to adding the symbol to their list but were moving slow like most Government Agencies, but it must have been frustrating for the family of the soldier who died, who must have felt like they were being stonewalled. The fact that our tax dollars had to be paid to defend the VA dragging their feet is rather frustrating; this isn't something that should have even been an issue, not for a religious symbol already recognized by the military. In fact, one of the reasons they gave for settling the case was that the VA wanted to spare the taxpayers the expense of a longer trail. Hmm, YA THINK? Look, the person gave his life for our country, and now the family has to fight to get their religious beliefs honored properly? They should be able to get whatever fucking thing they want on their grave marker...THEY DIED FOR OUR COUNTRY! If they want George W. Bush being raped by a donkey, well...gosh, they kinda died for our country, something considered the noblest thing you can do, so...well..start a carvin', I say.

Does anyone know a place where I can get some kind of dental assistance for..well, for no money down? I can pay for it eventually, but I couldn't pay anything until my check comes in, which will likely not be until the 6th of December. Thanks all.

| You scored as Dante Alighieri. According to you most of humanity will spend at least some of their afterlife in hell. You have a high likelihood of being exiled, but anyone as bloody fucking romantic as you deserves what they get. You have an exceptional moral code, overshadowed by the fact that you yourself cannot uphold it.|
Your existence bears a definite irony, although of fairly Christian morality, many pagans, satanists, communists, and intellectuals admire you and your works for all the wrong reasons.
Also, the brighest star in your sky is never going to be your lover...
It takes a lot of grief to be the cartographer of hell.

Strangely enough, I was tied between Dante and Miyamoto Musashi...tiebreaker put me as Dante though, which is certainly cool enough...Nietzsche being there too though, bah...can't stand Nietzsche. Can't win 'em all, I guess.

|Intelligent Design for the Evolutionary Guy
Subject: Intelligent Design debate
Moderator: We're here today to debate the hot new topic, evolution
versus Intelligent Des---
(Scientist pulls out baseball bat.)
Moderator: Hey, what are you doing?
(Scientist breaks Intelligent Design advocate's kneecap.)
Intelligent Design advocate: YEAAARRRRGGGHHHH! YOU BROKE MY KNEECAP!
Scientist: Perhaps it only appears that I broke your kneecap.
Certainly, all the evidence points to the hypothesis I broke your
kneecap. For example, your kneecap is broken; it appears to be a fresh
wound; and I am holding a baseball bat, which is spattered with your
blood. However, a mere preponderance of evidence doesn't mean anything.
Perhaps your kneecap was designed that way. Certainly, there are some
features of the current situation that are inexplicable according to
the "naturalistic" explanation you have just advanced, such as the exact
contours of the excruciating pain that you are experiencing right now.
Intelligent Design advocate: AAAAH! THE PAIN!
Scientist: Frankly, I personally find it completely implausible that
the random actions of a scientist such as myself could cause pain of
this particular kind. I have no precise explanation for why I find this
hypothesis implausible --- it just is. Your knee must have been
designed that way!
Intelligent Design advocate: YOU BASTARD! YOU KNOW YOU DID IT!
Scientist: I surely do not. How can we know anything for certain?
Frankly, I think we should expose people to all points of view.
Furthermore, you should really re-examine whether your hypothesis is
scientific at all: the breaking of your kneecap happened in the past,
so we can't rewind and run it over again, like a laboratory experiment.
Even if we could, it wouldn't prove that I broke your kneecap the
previous time. Plus, let's not even get into the fact that the entire
universe might have just popped into existence right before I said this
sentence, with all the evidence of my alleged kneecap-breaking already
Intelligent Design advocate: That's a load of bullshit sophistry! Get
me a doctor and a lawyer, not necessarily in that order, and we'll see
how that plays in court!
Scientist (turning to audience): And so we see, ladies and gentlemen,
when push comes to shove, advocates of Intelligent Design do not
actually believe any of the arguments that they profess to believe.
When it comes to matters that hit home, they prefer evidence, the scientific
method, testable hypotheses, and naturalistic explanations. In fact,
they strongly privilege naturalistic explanations over supernatural
hocus-pocus or metaphysical wankery. It is only within the
reality-distortion field of their ideological crusade that they give
credence to the flimsy, ridiculous arguments which we so commonly see
on display. I must confess, it kind of felt good, for once, to be the one
spouting free-form bullshit; it's so terribly easy and relaxing,
compared to marshaling rigorous arguments backed up by empirical
evidence. But I fear that if I were to continue, then it would be
habit-forming, and bad for my soul. Therefore, I bid you adieu.

|Shave the whales!
Okay, I'm feeling pretty damn bad putting this up...kind of the livejournal equivalent of only calling when you need something. But, well...my back is kinda to the wall right now, so I'm going for a long shot here.
I just found out yesterday that unless we come up with a lot of money we get to be evicted in 5 days. Now, the five days start counting today (friday) but that still leaves little time. After working out deals and roommate going to his family, we've cut the amount needed to $400. Of that I've got $200 cash. If anyone knows any way to come up with that kind of money within the next few days, let me know. I'll keep an eye out here. I've put some stuff on ebay that I know will sell, but I'm not going to get the money fast enough to help, although I would have it coming to pay people back if it comes to it.
I'm really sorry to come begging here, especially since...well..heh, we've all got our problems. I guess I'll return you to your regularly scheduled livejournaling.

Just making sure things don't get scrolled off (and making sure to be an obnoxious ass as well.) I am still trying to move Sunday morning from my place in forest park to chicago. I still need help moving boxes, even if you can only help me load up the van (Omar, who I'm moving in with, can help unload, but he works sunday so can't help with the loading part.) So far Fuzzyscribble has offered to drive the van, so I'm good in that area.

|Moving Moving Moving!
Alright, after a few false starts I think I'll be finally moving on sunday the 22nd. I need help..not a lot, but some. (I moved before with just my Dad and myself doing the loading, with Scott and Aimee helping unload, so it's not a major move.) The big things I need though are someone to drive the van I'm going to rent, and someone with a credit card to secure it (I'm going to pay for the rental but I don't have a card, and one is required.) If you're free sunday noon-ish and can help me move please let me know here (or call me..or tell scott/aimee) I'd really appreciate it. I shouldn't need too many folks helping, and I'll provide lunch of some sort as a small thank you.)

|There will be a lot of swearing and anger in this post. Pleased be warned.
First, read this: http://shakespearessister.blogspot.com/2005/12/dont-just-blame-victim-prosecute-her.html
I nearly vomited reading this..I'm still sick to my stomach. Just..fuck..dear fucking god, where do we get these people? What goddamn wretched pit of vile scum did they dredge these people from?
I'm all for innocent until proven guilty. Those men deserved a fair trail. The nature of their crime does not lesson the burden of proof.
But the act wasn't even called into question. They did have sex with her, that isn't even an argument. They simply decided that not only was there not enough evidecne to try the men, but that...well...basically that she had lied to the police.
Just read the post...did she get even the barest hint of a fair trial?
Now a woman is raped and has to pay an $1100 dollar fine to boot, for daring to actaully go to the police with it. It's a shame she didn't have two men willing to testify that she was raped..you know, liek certain goddamn stone age countries require? Oh, I guess that's us too.
More car thefts are falsely reported then rapes. And you don't get to made to feel like a whore for having a car that's worth stealing, either.
Just..i'm so mad now I'm nearly shaking. I read this and feel like..it's not worth fighting anymore. Fuck America, we're just not worth fighting for anymore. The lowest common denominator won. Fuck it all, it's time to leave. That's all I have to say for now..I'm almost numb about it by this point.

|Na Na Naaa Na, Na Na Naaa Na...
Hey Hey Hey, Goodbye!
Or in other words....
It's been a wonderful trip this whole year, and today's game made it all worth it. I had told myself that so many things could go wrong..that, being a Chicago team, something was going to cause us to blow it. But..well..we did just the opposite, going 11-1 for the whole series. I can finally relax and do a little basking in the glory of our New World Series Champions. Current Mood: giddy
