Oy vey.

Well, this got me out of my writer’s block last time. This time, I’m just too busy, but you can entertain me anyway. Caption it, photoshop it, whatever floats your boat.

Not damned? Do overs!

Purgatory

Though you are leaving this life in God’s grace, you haven’t quite been able to stop youself from sinning. Our God is an angry God, and requires that you serve your time in limbo before you pass through the pearly gates. Some theologians believe that while you are resting here you won’t know that eventually you will reach heaven, causing terrible doubts and hopeless speculation. Good luck. (Ed. - The good news? Purgatory is apparently a bar.)

Are you damned?

(Found at Sketches of Strain)

Get used to it, kid.

And that’s all I have to say about that.

Updating

I know, it’s not original, but it’s too warm for penguins. It’s almost eighty degrees here. If it looks weird, and especially if you only see two columns, try hitting refresh.

Very stressed. Involving bees. Thousands of bees. And weird high-pitched whistling noises. And trying to get the last of my stuff out of a sub-ground floor apartment, up a hill to the truck, in the mud.

How shall we fuck off, O Lord?

Life Of Brian is coming to American theaters next month!!!

When you’re feeling in the dumps,
Don’t be silly chumps,
Just purse your lips and whistle
That’s the thing!
Always look on the bright side of life…

(you’d better be whistling)

(via Rodya)

Country?

Ok. All I’m sayin’ is, if I sit thru this whole thing, somebody’d better do Jolene.

Venting.

I try not to discuss my personal life here, but I’m about one jackass away from breaking everything in sight and then falling to the floor in hysterical tears. If I have a complete psychological meltdown in the next few days, you should know why:

I am so fucking sick of being surrounded by incompetence. (This isn’t about work, don’t panic.) I got a letter in the mail yesterday saying that my homeowners insurance had been cancelled, two weeks after I bought my house, because the agent filled out my paperwork wrong. To get a new policy will be over $1000 more.

Contractors were supposed to run a new water line for the refrigerator yesterday. They were supposed to call at 7:30am, and be there at 8. At 9am, no one had called, much less shown up to do the work, and I left. So I was two hours late for work, for no reason. And I stupidly pre-paid for the work when I bought the refrigerator. Now I have to try to get my money back, too.

I can’t get anyone to give me a fucking estimate for a fucking fence. I’ve left messages at five places. One place took the address and said they’d leave a quote, and they never showed up.

I went to the post office this morning, and there were no change-of-address forms in the lobby. What the fuck?!

What the fuck is wrong with people?! It’s like living in fucking Atlas Shrugged, but with less sex.

I swear to god, I’m going to start screaming at about 3pm. Open a window. You’ll be able to hear me.

Bad mood? Me?

So, an arab kid was killed by Terrorists in Jerusalem on Friday.

Fatah’s armed wing, the Aksa Martyrs Brigades, claimed responsibility for the slaying, but later apologized, saying the victim was mistaken for a Jew.

It would be nice if someone learned a lesson from this. Wagers, anyone?

Update: Edited to removed misdirected anger. Just because other arab kids are murderous assholes doesn’t give me the right to take it out on this poor boy.

Update: No. I’ve had a truly miserable day, and I’m just not up to being that nice. So let me add this…

Cheers, Yaacov.

That feels a little better. Thanks Allah.

(I did send Pizza and Pesach goodies at PizzaIDF, by the way. In case you had to wonder. Please feel free to do the same.)
