    I got paid yesterday and deposited my check in the bank. Tonight, after getting home from work, I got started on paying utility bills by phone, which I normally do at the beginning of the month. I was short at the beginning of the month, so I called the electric/water company and my ISP to let them know I'd pay on the 21st. So I call and go through the automated payment robot with E-web (the water/power company) and get that sorted.

    Then I get the autobot for comcast on the line, but it won't accept my payment. I keep getting an error message that my card's been declined. I log onto my banks's website, and GOD DAMNIT! I was going through the motions so quick that I accidentally paid the past due, and the current bill which just generated but isn't due til the beginning of May! FUCK! That leaves 11 bucks in my account, and it's past 5 so their customer services isn't available until tomorrow morning, and I don't even know if they'll be able to do anything.


    GODDAMNIT!

    Otherwise it was an okay day.

    At this point I'll probably stay home in November and cast my vote for whiskey. If I have to choose between drinking battery acid and eating plutonium,  I think I'll opt out all together.

    What worries me about Trump is he his lack of understanding of what a president does. Most of his supporters seem not to understand it either.

    They had Cruz on a few days back and he was hit with a gay republican question about gay support. A fair question, which he bumbled around and didn't answer. Then he had an angry black man accusing the south of sending guns to poor blacks in New York. It was stupid. Cruz bumbled his way through that one as well. He got a couple of soft ball questions, but not many.

    So far Hillary has been asked to release her Wall Street transcripts, which she said she won't do unless everyone has to do something similar. She was asked about the 1994 crime bill, which she said it was a good question twice, and said she won't lock up people for smaller crimes. If your car gets broken into and your wallet and phone are stolen, it's not a small crime to you. Yes you could not leave stuff in your car, but people shouldn't be breaking into cars either. We have seen a big rise in this kind of crime around here as the meth heads from the next town over have started breaking in or flat out stealing cars.

    Asked if she's trustworthy, she said shes not a natural politician. Greatest regret? Supporting Bush in Iraq. Bernie fan asking about weed? No answer, beyond she will look at it. Women pay gap? change the laws so people can find out if they are getting paid less. Once the company sees they are paying less they will do the right thing. Really? Do you think they don't know they are paying less?
    Which SNL impersonator does her best? She can't pick. Oh and shes not a natural politician again. She likes to get things done. Which hot sauce does she like? I won't bother to tell you which, because who gives a shit. Bills annoying habit? reading before he goes to sleep and leaving the light on. I guess his whoring around days are behind him, or that may have been the answer.

    I'm not bashing Hillary, GMA is in her pocket, so she should get preferential treatment, and she did. My thoughts on Hillary is she really wants to help the people who are unable to help themselves. I think that in doing so she lumps in many groups that may not necessarily need that help, creating a system where the needs of the few outweigh the need of the many. It's not realistic.

    I dislike her enough to vote for Trump. That's how much I dislike her.

    True, but you did say it was time for a new one. I know Gonzo has a hammock since it was part of his secret Santa, so I assume he lays on Timely's wigs just to feel closer to the one he loves.

    I'm sorry Gonzo.  For the record I did not get stood up on a date and I still wish I was drunk as hell.

    Not to be glib, but at least you had a date.  Maybe it didn't work out, but it's a step in the right direction.

I'm fine with taking two cars, and heading over Sunday. Driving over Saturday, hanging out late, driving back home then doing it again Sunday sounds like a beating.

    alas, it sounds as if the comic con is going to be a solo affair for me again.

    Maybe I can con Gonzo in to coming.

    Given how tight my budget's been lately, it's not looking too likely for me either.
