stupid first world problems you're dealing with

Recommended Posts

this morning i seemed to have lost 1st gear in my car.. or at least am having a lot of trouble getting it into 1st gear. sort of grinds and wants to pop out.. so i put it in reverse then back into 1st and that kind of works.. but wtf i don't have time for this shit but it's 14 years old so i guess i should be grateful. 

 

fucking scorpions. ouch. 

 

Cryptowen - re kerouac.. i think i like Dharma Bums better. I've read a bunch of kerouac. Subterraneans is good. i liked Vanit of Dulouz which is basically an autobiography of kerouac about his early days. it's endearing.  there's a sweet sadness to all his stuff i identify with. the "On The Road" movie w/Kristen Stewart as Mary Lou is actually pretty good. she makes a really great mary lou and i had serious doubts. but it captures the friendship and spontaneity of those days i think. 

I've listened to enough Car Talk to know that your situation is not a good sign, would get that looked at immediately (and open your wallet, or put on some pretty lipstick).

 

re: you and Cryptowen's convo, I've tried not to overshare on here but I'm w/ you my dudes. Shit's rough, keep your heads up, it ain't easy, etc. clichés but actually heartfelt.  :beer:

car talk - yeah.. it's probably the gearbox which depending on car can be reasonable. i have a good mechanic who's fair so at least there's that. i won't be able to get it looked at until next week though.

Was on a walk with doge and found a dead hedgehog on the side of the road (i sort of live in the countryish-side). Couldn't tell what had happened, was some blood and the little fellow's jaw was fucked, but apparently wasn't hit by a car. Was so bummed when saw it swarming flies and seeing some crow trying to pick it, so once I got home get some thick gloves and went back to get it and buried it in my parents' garden. Damn, prolly sound totally stupid for you guys. Since a kid there has been at least one hedgehog living at my parents' garden each year which I've been following, so along with dogs I've got a really soft spot for Sonics . Fuck, having some sort of a soft moment here thanks to seeing how my dog starts to get quite old (well it is already) added with again rising depression so things like these really get me....or then I'm pregnant and can blame hormones.

Man that's a sad story, I feel you. Hope the next lil hog you see is an alive and happy one.

 

When I was a kid and playing with the neighborhood kids one afternoon, we came across a little family of hedgehogs.

We were fascinated by them and wanted to take care of them so we made a cozy little nest for them from a cardboard box filled with hay complete with a little opening.

 

After carefully lifting them into their new home, we thought they'd like something to drink so we put a saucer of milk down to them.

We then went home for the evening and when we came back to check on our small friends the next day things did not look good. One of the small ones was dead and the others seemed sickly.

All sad and disheartened we took them out into the woods and let them go, then buried the dead one in my friend's garden and made a little cross for him.

Years later i found out that milk is poisonous for them :/

I'm very afraid to have to buy a new Mac. I've heard nothing but bad things about this new generation.

You can pay someone else to do it. Probably ~$100 but hey maybe that's worth it?

I used a service like this (it actually cost $200!) once and it SUCKED. 

 

Maybe I just got a bad company or something I don't know, it was endorsed by Monster.com.

I had someone fix up a resume for me and when I came to edit it myself they had formatted it so much with columns and tables it was next to impossible to do so.
