so for the first time since before the disaster i'm getting a tax return! a few dollars shy of a grand!! yay! then i get home today and see a letter. hello. what's this? from the state attorney general's office. they took it. all of it. i'm not that far behind in my child support payments. was only a couple grand. i make my payments every month, almost a grand there too. seems that while i was on my hiatus from society they redid the payment schedule and what not. my sister (a lawyer) represented me by proxy. but when they started the new payments things got fouled up and so i owe a little bit in back support. i can understand them taking like, i dunno, half? but the whole thing? yeah i owe it, yeah i'm paying on it, but damn dude. crap. that was gonna be a new clothes dryer. oh well. easy come, easy go.

I am so sick of feeling tired, and so tired of feeling sick.

If this doesn't end soon I swear I'm going to kill myself. That's if this little sucker doesn't kill me first!

I first read that as, "And I'm not quite done with the third one."

When I brewed beer I quickly gave up on 12 oz bottles and moved to 40 oz-ers. Narragansett had nice heavy ones. Not sure what's available today.

Dishwashers are great at washing and sanitizing.

Texas Atty General is relentless, even when they are wrong. Don't get me started.

The boss/head mechanic of Doofus Auto Services is unable to deal with the situation with my car because he took a holiday to Hamilton Island (North Queensland) and is now stuck there because all flights back have been cancelled due to extremely heavy rain. In the tropics. In cyclone season.

The never ending stream of religious revelation, self-help and guidance books on the audible site. Looking down the New Releases page and they're like a third of the books.

This one is the one that tipped me from observation into mild irritation:

Quote:
Inside the Mind of Unchurched Harry and Mary: How to Reach Friends and Family Who Avoid God and the Church

Who are unchurched Harry and Mary? He or she could be the neighbor who is perfectly happy without God. Or the coworker who scoffs at Christianity. Or the supervisor who uses Jesus' name only as profanity. Or the family member who can't understand why religion is so important.

Inside the Mind of Unchurched Harry and Mary isn't a book of theory. It's an action plan to help you relate the message of Christ to the people you work around, live with, and call your friends. Using personal experiences, humor, compelling stories, biblical illustrations, and the latest research, Lee Strobel helps you to understand non-Christians and what motivates them. The book includes:
•15 key insights into why people steer clear of God and the church
•A look at Christianity and its message through the eyes of a former atheist
•Practical, inspirational strategies for building relationships with non-Christians
•Firsthand advice on surviving marriage to an unbelieving spouse
