I'm going to kick my roommate out into the snowy dark.

If she can't pay for her half of the rent this month, despite having a new job longer than I. I deeply suspect she is unable to, because of a few factors:

  1. She's a woman, and has no grasp on finances
  2. She was never properly trained in responsibility for one's actions
  3. Is dumb as a post and bought $240 worth of shoes and women's accessories
I'm not bitter.
I may be over-exaggerating a tad, but he bank statement (she leaves these things just laying about) reflected a negative balance. She also has an uncashed check in her wallet too. (Not a creeper.) I'm planning various ways of exposing her as the worthless scab she is (or at least informing her of it, I know she's scummy, I do wish I had learned this before we decided to be roommates). Somehow I deserve it, but the least I can do in this situation is try to pound in some basic finances for the average adult.

Speaking to some of my better informed and wiser friends think I have the right to be angry and seek restitution, or at least some minor revenge. I'm not entirely consumed by this endeavor, but it is on the mental backburner in terms of priority in the execution of the matter.

I've finished up the training facility's testing today, and I begin on-the-job-training tomorrow morning at 5 a.m., which is preceded by a 25 minute drive. I am thoroughly looking forward to waking up at the asscrack of dawn to drive out to the distribution center.

I'm still watching the X-files, finally broke into season 4, watching the infamous "Home" episode. Despite watching a good number of these episodes when I was younger, I'm still held by the standalone episodes' monster stories. 

Update! My roommate claims she has the needed funds (and more even!) to do the responsible thing and pay for her right to continue living in the apartment as an equal human being, albeit barely.

In summary, I may or may not have to lock out my roommate by changing the locks. (It sounds like a fun idea, too.)

Cooking a Turkey, End of X-Files S. 1, and the Turkey Dong in My Trash

Yes, I'm cooking a turkey, no I seen the X-Files (in their entirety), and yes, there really is a turkey's wang sitting in my trash.

Cooking a turkey is likely the most uninvolved recipe I've ever taken part of, that is unless I were to sit inside the oven with the bird and listen for the plastic thermometer to "pop!" In the preparation for said turkey, I found out that much to my suspicions, the giblets were in fact... giblets. The things I do barehanded to poultry. During which I've watched the last 5 episodes of Season 1 (and continuing the second season).

Spent some time on skype with a long distance friend (it's good to know people in far off places if you're paranoid about T.H.E.M. finding you), talked about video games, drinks, life, etc. Learned something about internets, don't disconnect your ethernet even if you have wi-fi, because it will interrupt the signal, unless you know something I don't about it.

Oh, Borderlands, how you've faithfully provided me with nearly a year of entertainment, I hope you get a good sequel, with free DLC (fucking microsoft) to extend its life.

Not much else in terms of updates. Farewell.

So I may break the pattern of titles someday.

Still waiting for the results of my background and drug screening tests before I go to work. At least I have money to survive until then. As if I really was going to have difficulty in surviving until then. The only real priorities is having enough gas to get to and from training centers and Delaware until the 23rd when my *first* paycheck will arrive (ouch, 16 days). And wouldn't ya know it, gas is $3/gal. Feels bad man.

The cable (TV) is temporarily disconnected (because it's expensive, and my roommate is a selfish, fiscally irresponsible cunt-tard) but I still have internets, I hopefully assume is the case because they hope I use it to re-activate the cable TV again. Until then, I'm going to be watching movies and possibly the entirety of the X-files. And on that note, I'm going to start the conversion process of the first season. (Conversion by Any Video Converter free version, shameless plug for freeware)

Ended short relationship with girlfriend, she didn't think things would work out with her working and classes at school. Understandable, can't expect someone to give up their own future for present happiness (unless you're my roommate, in which case someone else will save your hide -- yesimad).

That's all for now.

Good news, everyone! I work in a warehouse now, which means money, exercise, and benefits!

Kroger Distro center in Delaware, OH. If my math is right, I'll be living almost too well within my means. Unfortunately, I can't build my debt prison this way! I could even get myself out of my student loans debt! Let's hope no one in the gub'ment catches wind of that.

In other news, good or ill, I'm watching NASA tell me about the new arsenic-eating bacteria! Bill Nye (whose official title is apparently) The Science Guy broke it down and told me that life as we didn't expect must exist. 

Microbes, they're pretty awesome.

100 Questions rubbed out, now lets look around my apartment and see what it tells about me.

  1. Walking in: you see a pair of somewhat weathered purple chairs, a fried PSU on a shelf, and a very large and un-steal-able TV, my laptop and fairly bare walls. My laptop dual-boots Windows 7 and Linux Ubuntu 10.10. I use a Logitech trackball mouse for everyday stuff, and a $5 optic mouse that came with my desktop for GIMP.
  2. The kitchen: it's slightly down the hall, it is usually messy, but this time it's clean. The fridge is kind of scarcely filled, but the freezer has a ham and a turkey in it. /shrug. Occasionally there is beer in my fridge, if I could get beer today there would be Leinenkugel's Winter Seasonal.
  3. My bathroom: Nothing matches. There's a dead OSU analog clock on the "guest" towel rack, and an orange towel on the floor to absorb water. There's Head & Shoulders shampoo (because I get a dry scalp otherwise) and 2 bottles of AXE body wash, as well as a bright blue scrubby blob thing.
  4. My room: Messy as hell. My desktop is actually powered down, and my bed is not made. Not much to say about this, other than the hole in the wall still needs work to patch up, and the piles of clothes need to be folded up.
  5. Roommate's room: No idea, I assume that the noise and smell is from wild bears that live in the caverns adjacent to the building.
