note: ranting ahead


after i pay rent and most of elec. bill tomorrow, then throw some at cable, i'm gonna be just about out of cash - literally

i'll be late paying car and ins. in two weeks too and then i'll REALLY be broke [tired]

trying to find work in I.T. is a pain in the ass
i've had 14 interviews in the last 3 weeks
yes, my resume is on at LEAST a dozen sites and there's probably 30 headhunters with it as well (one in oregon of all places! wtf? i don't wanna relocate, but if he finds something proper and they pay it...... eh)

i've had 4 job offers, but i've had to turn them down as the pay rate simply wasn't enough to be able to pay bills - the others i'm sure i COULD have gotten, but according to my resume (i think) they think i'll bail (not true!) since it shows... not steady long term employment (because i've been doing contract shit!)

why'd i turn them down?
cuz i told them that i'd be looking for another job that pays more and be gone inside a month
i can't do that to me or them, i'm not a dick

contract i.t. work is pure shit - can't get enough steady enough to make any money


sell some suff i own?
sure, if anyone has an interest, and it seems no one does

www.demoniclemon.com/stuffineedtosell but it seems no one i tell about the things is interested (also 5500watt generator nib, 16' kayak used for ~5hours total, car audio speakers nib, some amps, and a few other bits n pieces)


sell the car? fuck no. not an option. how would i get around to get a job? but then how am i gonna pay for the car? right, got your argument covered there. no, busses are totally unreliable around here not to mention it would take an hour and a half to go 8 miles. bike? can't afford to buy one, or to ride it in SFL weather - that's just dumb. walk? puh-leeeeeze. sure, if i want 2 jobs that pay min. wage each and be working 19 hours a day.


go ahead, ask me a "why don't you.....?" and i'll have an answer for it, and it'll be negative
i've thought of damn near everything already


f your spelling pedants

Hey Cap'n! This looks like good work if a guy can get it. Comfy chairs, free transportation and full medical. Where do I apply? [Big Grin]
