All right I am taking a course that will allow me to test and certify backflow devices. (for those of you who do not know what a backflow device is, it is simply a device that stops your water from traveling back into the water supply) now the problem I am having is that I was going to do this for my boss, he has since told me he will not help cover ANY of my expenses (and let me tell you this certification is not cheep) and to let him know when I would be able to test fro him. As such I am going to start my own business Testing backflows, but I need a company name. I had a long time ago decided that if I ever started a plumbing company I would call it DcH plumbing. ( between you and I it was going to stand for Dew we Cheat them and How!) which would stand for Don't cheat Home owners. However my wife is against that name with a passion unrivaled by the burning of a thousand suns. So if any of you have any creative business names your willing to throw at me please do and tell me what it means. ANY help would be appreciated

10:06 pm - Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale.

Ok, suppose I were to tell you the story of the end of the world as a generality. You’d have this guy, and he would return after a long absence to bring about a change. Those who believed in him would be spared his wrath and would be gone leaving the rest to suffer a torment worse than death. After a time all life left would be gone from this place and there would be a new world re created. Sounds a lot like the story in Revelations right? But it is not really, it is the story of Cthulhu. I have been thinking a lot about religion lately as I make plans for the future and the more and more I think about it the more disappointed in my fellow man I become. We wrap our selves in these glittering illusions to protect our selves from the truth, when the smartest of men have stated that only the truth can set you free. It boggles my mind that in an enlightened age such as this that archaic concepts as one true religion, one true savior still shape people. Why is it so hard to accept that YOU may very well be in complete control of whom you are who you will become and where you will go when / if you die. Why do people fight so hard to give that control to someone else? I suppose I have strived too hard to gain my own independence to accept that it is given to me if I simply chose to believe that a deadbeat father figure gave it too me hundreds of years ago because I was punished for a crime I did not commit. Do I have all the answers? No, but I am tired of putting up with people who only want the answers spoon fed to them by a story teller who it was spoon fed too as well. I close with this. Look around you at for example the Christians. Is there a more miserable lot? You would think they would be upbeat and happy all the time they have eternal salvation, but they are not happy. Do this for me, find the happiest person you can and politely ask them what religion they practice. My money is on none to my own.

Once you are tagged you MUST write an entry about 6 weird habits/things about you as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose the next six people to be tagged and list their names

I was tagged by labile and lutine

Ok this is not fair, I only have six friends and two of them tagged me. -.- How am I supposed to "carry the chain onward" with so few friends. I guess I could write in this stupid thing more and try to attract people but that is not going to happen. So I am refusing to tap six let alone twelve friends. I will answer twelve questions and we will leave it at that.

1. I have to tap a door twice before I open it.

2. I have to lace and tie my shoes exactly the same way every day. First right then left.

3. I wear my belt the wrong way around my waist and I never wear a seat belt

4. I have to do my morning routine the exact way every day or my day is shot.

5. I do not brush my hair unless it is a special occasion

6. I despise overly happy people, and I openly mock them

7. I do not like being in the lime light, nor do I enjoy being the center of attention but I always seem to be getting my self into that spot.

8. I am afraid of change. Good or bad

9. I only have a close group of about 9 people I can call my friends. Everyone else is an acquaintance or worse

10. I had my name legally changed in an attempt to alienate my parents and get them to leave my life.

11. I do not like cold things. Ice, cold beverages, even ice cream and I only rarely indulge in foods below room temperature

12. I do not think I am doing what I am supposed to be doing with my life.

There I hope my friends are happy I am not tagging any of them and these are a few things I doubt many of you know about me, and could most likely have done without knowing.

So I did not think I had a breaking point with the company I work for but I guess after today that is not true. I was just informed by one of my three bosses that I would be on rough in’s till I got the hang of it and could do them quickly and with relative ease. For those of you un-familiar with the phases of plumbing construction allow me to explain. There are four basic levels of plumbing construction and although I am qualified to do all three I have been doing multi-family condos for over a year now and have not placed much time into the other areas thus forgetting many shortcuts. ANY way you have rough in that is where I come out and the only part of your home that is there is a thin line of cinder block it is my job to pull the carpentry walls and get the plumbing pipes where they belong. Btw all this is done in the scorching summer sun and temperatures in excess of 95 degrees with little to no breeze and no shade any where. This is where they want to move me to for the next Oh I do not know indefinitely. Then you have the next phase with is tub set/ second rough this is where the house has walls, and a roof and I come and stub out the drains and water lines for the sinks, put your tub, laundry machine hookup, shower valve in place before the drywall goes up. Essentially what I have been doing for oh the last two years and know like the back of my hand. Then you have sewer and water where we set you up to get water into the house and sewage away from your house, which I can do. And finally final finish, when I come in and put the sinks and dishwasher and shower heads and toilets into place, something else I can do just do not have a lot of practice at it. Now of the four stages of construction for plumbing I can do each I am better at some than others but I can do each. I know what you are thinking; there is a but in this somewhere. You are right, despite knowing how to do all four phases I really only like doing three of the four. On top of that every time I get a helper/apprentice and I have him trained to the point he is good enough for me to trust he is not going to screw something up, they give him to someone else and give me the newest, least trained person they have and bitch when my productivity goes down. Well I am tired of it, I am done being taken advantage of and especially done being yelled at every day by a man who has no people skills and questionable plumbing knowledge. ~end rant~

On the plus side I have a few decent job offers I am investigating and things are looking up.

Strictly speaking from a clinical standpoint I am very suicidal if my actions are any indication of what my subconscious is telling me. Sign one, I am patching up damaged relationships. Sign two I am giving away valued items to friends and family. Sign three I am discussing terminating my employment openly. And lastly I have recently acquired a fire arm. Now before any of you call the police, rest assured I am not going to kill myself. I am however contemplating vanishing into the nothingness from which each of you found me. I am not trying to hurt any one’s feelings I am just feeling a little overwhelmed right now and I don’t have any more answers. Why is it I can look at other people tell them what is wrong and how to go about fixing it yet when I examine my own life and try to do the same I come up lacking any advice? I am great at pointing out my faults, but none of my strengths. I can tell you everything wrong with me, but I can’t tell you how I am going to fix me. I’d add more but this point I am too tired and depressed to go on.

Ok for those of you who do not know I have chronic back pain, migraine headaches, and now acid reflux in addition to my allergy to outdoors. The cause of all of this is a spinal misalignment called a subluxation.. I need a major amount of chiropractic care for this or over time it will kill me. By the way I pled with any one who has major health problems to see a corrective chiropractor I can not begin to tell you what an improvement it will make in your lives. I have facts if you would like them get a hold of me. The problem is paying for all of this. I need to come up with $3,004.75 for my care. Now keep in mind this is the discounted rate it is down from $8,580.00 that he usually charges because I am a friend. He has even made it a step easier for me by splitting it up into 10 monthly payments of 300.84. Un fortunately that is a car loan payment. I do not know how I am going to be able to afford this unless I make major changes in my spending habits. So if any of you have USEFUL suggestions. (that means something other than STOP spending money on us) feel free to enlighten me because at this point I want to cry I hurt so badly, physically and financially.

John Reuben - Nuisance
From the album The Boy vs. The Cynic

So here we are in this same old spot
Knowing something needs to happen but our mounts are locked,
Tongue tied, closed tight, sealed shut, yup
I tried hard but it just wouldn't come up
It's on the tip of my tongue; it's in the front of my mind,
Yet the words were still so hard to find,
Finally the reality of things to come pushed me to the edge
I jumped off the cliff into the abyss as I said

I'm not trying to be a nuisance
I just think we can do better than this
That was simply my two cents you can,
You can take it or leave it

The conversation lingered on and on
Before I knew it night had turned to dawn
And were we searching for the truth in all of it
Or are we debating just to win the argument
Cuz none of us want to hear about where we go wrong
This song could easily be from me to you or me to John
Cuz I have the potential
To be the guiltiest
My greatest strength is also my strongest weakness

I'm not trying to be a nuisance
I just think we can do better than this
That was simply my two cents you can,
You can take it or leave it

Let's think about this path that we're taking
Let's think about this future that we are creating
Let's think about this life that is fading
Think about it come on think about it now
Let's think about this time that we are spending
Investing in monetary things that are ending
Lets think about and let's think together and
Let's think about what we can do to make it better

I'm not trying to be a nuisance
I just think we can do better than this
That was simply my two cents you can,
You can take it or leave it

We can and we will do better than this
