Well, I graduated the rehab program I've been working since last August today. I'd say about half the time I was still drinking, and I've slipped up twice since the beginning of the year, but I've kept the course. I have all the ammunition for help in the world, and am grateful I did it. 

Do I deserve the degree? Probably not. If I was 100% honest I'd have never ended up getting out of the program. But I made the effort and for that I'm proud of myself. It's time to move on.

I just saw an older Asian man walking down 34th street.  Barefoot. 

If you're ever in New York City, please for the love of god, do not do this.

Yeah, that's a bad idea.

The plot apparently thickens!

 

I check my account this morning and see that my direct deposit from them has already hit, and it's more than double what it usually is. Either they massively screwed up payroll, or they've taken it upon themselves to pay out my PTO even though I haven't officially left yet (last day will be July 6th) and actually had plans to take off Sunday and use some time. I have to wait a couple of hours until their system updates and shows me my paystub to see WTF is happening.

 

Edit: And yes, they decided to cash out my PTO without informing me. 

 

My wife: Maybe they just really want you to stay!

Going to be a long year.  Having a pain problem in one arm that docs think is a pinched nerve.  Manageable first couple weeks, but quite painful now.  Alternates pain with a very odd tingling sensation that runs down my whole arm. Physical therapist thinks it is related to a couple decades of poor posture, so probably won’t be a quick fix.  Ugh.

Forgot to mention that my credit union account got hacked and they froze my card... for delivery upon 8-10 days

Why I can't just go to the main building and have them cut one on the spot for me like they did at my dad's bank is beyond me, as is why I have to call a toll-free number to get it activated.

That's fucked up, I lost my debit card last week and was able to walk into my CU and get a new one.  It even has a picture of a badger on the front.

Then I walked out to my car and immediately found my 'lost' card because I am an idiot.

They can give you temp cards with a preset amount of money on them, like gift cards with your account's cash, but I don't really need one. Thankfully. I know they're just a credit union but if they can hold my fucking money for me then they can afford to stamp some numbers and a bar code scan into a strip of plastic right then and there, can't they? And while they're at it activate the thing since THEY RUN THE GODDAMN BANK?!

Grrrr... anyway...

Does anyone remember a poster named Marty Feldman's Left Eye on here? That wasn't another board I was on, was it? Real smart, funny dude as I recall.

I've had the same problem going back to late last year in my left arm. I also had the tingling sensation going down my arm. Physical therapy helped immensely. Mine was also related to poor posture. I was prescribed gabapentin for the pain, but I haven't really had to take it.

I’m sitting in an outdoor shopping center waiting for a store to open.  There’s a violinist playing for donations and it hits me that he’s playing “Informer” by Snow.   Okay then.

I liked "Informer" in 6th grade, and damn it, I still like it. When you read the lyrics, the song makes sense. Now, I'm going to hit youtube to see if I can find a violin cover. 

While looking for "Informer" covers, I came upon this one.

lil Octopus has SuctionCup Tentacle & Beak Disease. Poor guy had a very tough night where his mouth hurt and was struggle to sleep. So the two of us stayed up laying on the couch (then I was smart enough to bring his mattress to the living room) and we watch Zootopia and Finding Nemo on repeat all night. 
Last year he had bad Stridor and needed to be in the ER overnight. Father’s Day is cursed.
My beautiful wife, Gazelle, is making pork chops though. So I’m tired but about to eat good.

It has very much been my intention that once I start compiling the massive 90's playlist on Spotify, Informer will be one of the first tracks included. Haven't gotten around to it, as of yet, though.

After a revisit, it was apparent that Snow is in fact quite talented, and got a bad rap... but that In Living Color Jim Carrey parody is still hilarious.

Paraphrasing some comedian at the time, might have been Denis Leary or Colin Quinn: "Informer?  More like in four months, pal, you'll be pumping gas in Fresno with Color Me Badd."

I have an almost 5-hour 90s pop playlist on Apple Music.  Adding Informer right now.

Way too much of the playlist is dedicated to the "Euro dude 'rapping,' trying to sound tough and then a woman sings the chrous" 90s dance style...Snap, Real McCoy, Culture Beat, La Bouche, C+C were all secretly the same band, right?

That definitely sounds like Denis Leary.

Meaning it was probably Bill Hicks.

I like how the thumbnail makes him look more like the high school English teacher who isn't mad at you, just disappointed, for using Cliffs Notes, instead of a guy who had already done time.
