What a stressful

What a stressful day. Closing on a house sucks ass. So, I get up at about 9:30 and go through the regular morning routine, then call the mortgage place to get an exact dollar figure I need to bring in. "Oh, we don't have it yet. Call back in an hour."...

Closing on my

Closing on my house is today. I just realized that my post yesterday didn't state how I was going to be a national celebrity. That's a shame. I think all my posts should note that at least once or twice. I saw X2 last night with Robert. I had heard so...

The easiest $20 I never made

I went to Sully's to collect on the food cart I painted. Here's the conversation I had with the owner. "So how much do I owe ya?" "Let's say $220. I had to buy about $40 worth of paints and supplies, so..." "$240! What an excellent price! I'll get my...

It's going to

It's going to rain tonight and tomorrow. Good for grass, bad for me, since I was supposed to make money painting outside tomorrow. Polk, we still on for Kouri's? Outside may not work, but Kouri's food is good inside, even. The closing on my house is...

I painted a

I painted a food cart for Sully's. It sucked ass. It's one of those food carts that sits downtown in the courthouse. They had locked up the cart in a dark alley, where I did my painting. It was stainless steel, and despite purchasing all new paints,...

We're A-GO, baby! A-GO, A-GO, A-GO! Baby baby, GO!

June 10th-13th, I will be out in beautiful San Francisco, starring in my very own episode of The Screen Savers. Okay, well, I won't be the star, and there will more than likely be several other people sharing the episode with me. But still. I'll be on...

It was a

It was a busy day yesterday. I'm doing more painting at Sully's on their food cart, which will be pretty fun. Yesterday was just a meeting, and since I'm painting on stainless steel I'll need to do some research on the best paints to use. I also need to...

Oy vey. So

Oy vey. So, a couple of things to preserve for myself and no one else. I'm concerned about Jaimee's feelings, so this is a private post. She seems unconcerned about my feelings, so I don't know why I'm bothering, but there ya go. So, I went into deliver a...

junkmachine.com is back

junkmachine.com is back up and running, but I ain't done makin' a stink about it yet. Simon Rickards will pay, damn it.

junkmachine is still

junkmachine is still down, but since my new host kicks a ridiculous amount of ass, they switched everything to junkpit.com for me. So all the content is there, with just a few litte bugs here and there. They'll get sorted out soon enough. I saw Identity...

So Simon Rickards

So, Simon Rickards is a putz. He emailed me a couple days ago because I posted stuff on junkmachine.com about him, calling him a fag. He emailed me, threatening a lawsuit, and I emailed back, telling him to shove it. Now he's changed the nameserver...

Praise the Lord

Praise the Lord that my car got broken into! Praise Jesus! Yay! I'm getting a check in the mail for $625, which will cover the cost of a new top AND a new CD player AND probably most of the CDs that were stolen. Awesome.

It's fate baby

It's fate, baby, fate. Terrible day today. Terrible, frustrating, awful fucking day. I won't bore you with the details, but I will say that it has to do with financing for my house and my lack of tax knowledge. The good part of today... I was working at...

For the first

For the first time in the history of my portrait making career, someone was displeased with the results. I shouldn't say displeased. I should say lame, lame, lame, lame, lame. I hate it when bankers try to be artists. Okay, I hate it when anyone tries to...

So yesterday my

So yesterday my dog was sick. She took 2 dumps in the morning, and I felt bad locking her in the bathroom, but I had a mural to paint. I came back a few hours later, opened the door to my apartment, and it smelled so bad. Worse than usual even. I was...

I met with

I met with the insurance adjuster man today. He was a nice guy with a terrible toupee. Just as I suspected, the costs of a new window/top turns out to be... well, a lot. He does have to adjust for depreciation, which I think is lame and stupid. I mean,...

Apparently my Nintendo

Apparently my Nintendo Computer was published in Electronic Gamers Monthly. Who knew? Not me. A couple magazines have asked me for permission to be printed, but not them. I just checked Walgreens, but they don't have the latest issue. So, please, anyone...

Drank beers with

Drank beers with Alan and Jenny Robb while watching Office Space last night. I like nights that are cheap. Today is laundry day.

It was a

It was a boring night last night. I don't really go out on weekends anymore, opting instead to go out on weekdays whenever and wherever the drink specials are. It's part of being broke without a real job. I downloaded and watched Punch-Drunk Love last...

More good news, and more ways for me to be famous even if this Screen Savers thing doesn't work out.

Have I mentioned how much I love it when people call me about doing jobs? During the appraisal this morning, I get a phone call from a friend of the lady whose class I did a presentation for. What a weird sentence. Anyway, this lady calls looking for...
