Okay so the

Okay, so the latest on the house is this. The current owner is being foreclosed. As a result, the bank wants to close really, really, really soon. How soon, you ask? March 17th. So things are going to have to be kicked up a notch, here. It's delayed even...

So last night

So last night was Fabish and Amy's shower. All of us groomsmen were there, with the exception of one. It was a good time to be had by all, and I ate some really, really, really, really good food. Some sort of pork, I was told. Not much else happening. Now...

Well the slashdot

Well, the slashdot madness still isn't dying down. Hits are back up today, and I don't know if that's from slashdot or another page that linked to me. I'll find out tomorrow. I put up a desperate link, begging for money because I'm so far over my transfer...

Things are starting

Things are starting to look up. Jaimee called me from Albaqueerkey, safe and sound. It's a sad time no matter what, but hopefully we made the right decision. The house situation is sketchy. The chances that we still have the house are good, but it means a...

bad news and more bad news.

This is a fun time for me. slashdot.org, a ridiculously high traffic web site, took it upon themselves to link to junkmachine.com. I got about 30,000 visitors yesterday and my site crashed. Today I got a call from my host saying I was 7 gigs over my...

I'm not afraid of being a homo... sometimes.

AKA - The post where Tim stops being a cocky fuck. AKA - The post where Tim stops trying to be funny all the time. AKA - The post that a lot of Tim's friends would never want to read. I have kind of a reputation, especially with friends who have known me...

So I borrowed

So, I borrowed my dad's truck yesterday to help Jaimee move some stuff to storage and to my apartment. In the process, I ran into a huge concrete post and banged up the fender pretty good. I felt so awesome about it. I've been driving and borrowing my...

I hate days

I hate days like this. I had to run out to my dad's house this morning to pick something up for our meeting tonight. Then I had to work for a few hours. Now I'm home, preparing more documents for our meeting with the mortgage broker. Then we go meet with...

This house buying

This house buying stuff is hard. There's lots of paperwork, and lots of me having to dig through a bunch of folders looking for stuff I never thought I would need. And it's all happening so fast... Not much else happening, I guess. I'm really looking...

So I guess

So, I guess my persistence is paying off. I called the print shop that I interviewed for, asking for a yes or no response. Didn't get one. I emailed the guy saying I'd take the lower pay rate, and he emailed me back saying the job I applied for had been...

Well I'm a

Well, I'm a homeowner now. I bought a house. For you Peoria-ites, it's 304 E. Forrest Hill, so it's 3 blocks up fron Knoxville, towards Prospect. It's a nice part of town, and the house is big and awesome. I'll post pictures soon. I have a 2 stall garage,...

I just got

I just got off the phone with my dad. We've abandoned the idea of getting a loan through a bank because we need him to cosign with me for a decent interest rate, and banks hate that. So we've been talking to a broker... real nice guy. As it turns out, I...

Also the print

Also, the print shop who interviewed me twice STILL hasn't made a decision on who to hire. I just called, since that was like 3 weeks ago, and he told me they expect to make a decision in about 2 weeks. Holy crap. I've decided if they offer me the job,...

Okay so I'm

Okay, so I'm feeling great aside from my stuffy nose. It's annoying. It's all stuffed up so I have to breathe through my mouth all the time. Normally this isn't bad, except when I sleep my mouth gets all dried out and I have to wake up a couple times and...

So I've been

So, I've been sick. I think I almost died. Wednesday I started feeling pretty bad. By Thursday I felt absolutely terrible. Since I always work on Thursdays, I called in and told them I'd stop by on Friday instead and take Thursday to heal. I got sort of a...

I woke up

I woke up in the middle of the night last night in desperate need for NyQuil. Other than that, I slept great and woke up after 11 hours of sleep wide awake, alert, and feeling good. Except for my stuffy nose and occassional coughing fits. But compared to...

I hate getting

I hate getting sick. But my throat is sore and my head hurts and when I move I feel like I'm going to puke. Fuck you, sick!

I applied for

I applied for a graphic design position at another print shop here in Peoria, but they haven't called me back yet. It's a really bad time to be looking for a job, I suspect. I can't find anything. Maybe I should have just taken that crap job where I would...

Okay so this

Okay, so this weekend was pretty great. Friday was a lazy night, just sitting around watching movies with Jaimee. On Saturday I woke up nice and early to pack and get ready for Fabish's bachelor party. Alan picked me up at about 9:30, and we went to pick...

It's been an

It's been an eventful couple of days, I guess. On Saturday Mullens called me, letting me know that he's been called up from reserve to active duty as of today. Kind of shocking for someone like me who doesn't keep up on the news or have any clue what's...
