    Happy Friday campers. Hope you all enjoy the weekend.

    Polk, My brother in law's birthday is this weekend. He's coming to town for a get together so I can't hunt down a beer with you Saturday. I'll let you know next time I'm out that way. I'm ready for a cold beer or two, soon.

    Supes, butts butts butts.... and legs.

    Kegs, Did all the coffee girls escape?

    Jack, Sorry to hear about your therapist. I hope you can find another willing to work with you and your schedule. I'm not sure what you are going through, but I have someone close to me struggling with depression. She went through the same thing, losing her therapist due to a few canceled appointments (if that's the case). It turned out to be a good thing, because her new one is much better and holds her accountable. Things like exercise, sleep and diet, are factors in depression, things she was ignoring advice on previously.
    She still has her days but once her new therapist sat down and laid out "You came to me for help. I'm telling how I can help. If you don't follow the advice, you are wasting our time" She got it.
    I hope you find a better therapist and get the help you need to make it better.

    And to Gonzo who never comes around anymore, probably because he's been trying on hipster glasses, and beanies. Hope you are doing good.

    In all seriousness, why don't you call the therapist and ask her for her reasoning behind her decision?

    Maybe it's about missed appointments, maybe it's something else. While it might be troubling to hear her reasons, it might also give you some direction for your next steps.  And wouldn't it be awesome if her answer was "you're doing fine and my time can be better spent helping someone who is not yet on the right path?"


    I think it's unprofessional. Maybe it's your canceled appointments, maybe it's not, but there is no reason for her to send you a letter. Not without attempting to speak to you first. If it was the missed appointments, maybe I could understand the letter with no call, but she should definitely have said in the letter the reason. And if it's because she doesn't think you need counseling anymore, that should definitely be face-to-face, and at the very least over the phone if you can't get there.

    I would definitely call and find out why.

    Monday I was sick, so I canceled my counseling appointment. Today, I got a letter from my counselor stating that she won't be continuing with me as a patient. The letter said she doesn't think therapy is what I need for resolving my current goals or solving problems. I'm not sure if this is because she thinks I'm doing better than I might think I am, or if I've canceled too many appointments for her to want to continue with me.

    Yesterday, I picked up my paycheck, and it looks like it's short by 6 hours. I don't know what that would be, but I'll have to figure that out with my boss. I'm also getting less hours because of the math class I'm taking.

    Speaking of the class, we got handed back out first exam today, and I got a C. I thought I'd done better than that, like at least a B. I wasn't the only one we did poorly. Apparently enough people scored low that the teacher decided to give us a chance to raise our grade by redoing the problems we missed on the test.

    Tomorrow, I have to leave the house early to go by the DHS office and fill out some more paperwork for food stamps, because the 6 month check up report thing I filled out and mailed back to them a few weeks ago was apparently incomplete.

    It feels like I'm hanging on by a thread and slipping down.

    If anyone wants to post a funny pic or gif to cheer me up, please do.

    I can't figure out how to post images here.  try copy/pasting this link.

    I should write a book.

    Problem is I know you have some actual story writing skill.  Therefore your book would take a year to write and no publisher would be interested.

    Someone needs to do a fanfiction of 50 shades, but set it at a wizard school.  Bring that crap full circle (I understand that Twilight was fan fiction of Harry Potter, but I don't know if this is true)

    50 Shades was a fan fiction of Twilight to begin with...  Imagine 50shades of vampire Potter.

    I know that, that's what I'm saying. 50 shades is fan fic of twilight, but I think twilight was fan fic of harry potter. That's the rumor anyway.

    Maybe I overreacted. I like Ms. Ppraisal too. But I'm not gonna ng crawling back acting like the editor of the whole site hadn't insulted me. Also the you won/you didn't win thing bothers me. Luke sent me an email asking did I want some of the axel Braun porn Blu rays as a consolation prize. I told him I wasn't offended by porn (I'm not) but iIdon't have a Blu Ray player. The more iI thought about it the more it bothered me that he wanted to award me his unwanted porn collection.

    Still Luke insists the FB changes hasn't hurt the site. Yeah right.
    The last couple of days I've browsed the headlines but nothing popped out at me that looked interesting enough to read. I'm pretty much done. I do hope he gets a forum started, just so I can see it get more traffic, than the site it's supposed to promote.

    I think the trick is not to write anything remotely interesting. Instead write a teen love story, surrounding them with danger and things preventing them from finding love. Make sure you stretch it out for at least 3 books so they can make 4 movies (thanks Hunger games) then sit back on your piles of money and write stuff you want, understanding that no one will ever read it.

    Simple really.

    Jane loved Eric with all her heart but each night when the moon would rise, Eric became a magical unicorn. Eric had no memory of how this curse was placed upon him, but with Jane's love she hope to prove that it is truly a blessing. Unknown to either of them a dark force has been searching for Eric and it's plans for him could bring about the end of the world.

    I was just messing with ya. I don't think you should pay for sex. I'd guess it's probably safer at a brothel, that I imagine, but I would paranoid for years after that I caught every disease known to man.  

    I'm not encouraging the pay for sex. I'm just saying it's an option and I wouldn't think less of you. Going to a brothel (a legal one) is probably better than hooking up with some random chick at the bar, who might not quite so strict with her condom use or her std testing.

    I want to avoid this movie like the plague.  I don't want one dollar going to the idiot fools that made this.  However, if Luke was interested in some sort of review by an actual fan of the cartoon, and I could be reimbursed for going to see this, I would consider it.  However, he has Sly Dante for this.  And his wife.

    Also, it's possible I would be asked to leave the theater. I'm not generally a talker at the theater (though I do talk to the screen at home) but I can 100% believe that throughout this movie I would be exclaiming "what the hell is this shit?"

    I'm gonna come right out and say that I will pay for Arkay to see this film.  I'll even pay for a pre movie beer and some popcorn.

    I want to avoid this movie like the plague. I don't want one dollar going to the idiot fools that made this. However, if Luke was interested in some sort of review by an actual fan of the cartoon, and I could be reimbursed for going to see this, I would consider it. However, he has Sly Dante for this. And his wife.

I could say how lazy that is, and how it shows, you are a one trick pony, but instead I'll say, I'm impressed. How brilliant is it to realize you can bilk your loyal fans for more money with little effort on your part. Shameless and genius.
    I should write a book.

    I have never read the book. But because I have eyes and ears, I know a little. I do know that Kristen Stewart has to become a vampire because her human body isn't strong enough to birth a vampire baby and if she doesn't turn she'll die. So how does this work now...there would therefore be no reason for Boy Kristen Stewart to become a vampire, which I thought was something pivotal in the later book.
