Welcome to the second edition of this new weekly wrap up for what’s going on in the life of Kevin Hellions. We’re still looking for a graphic to throw in here so let me know if you have one. Send it in an email or something. Maybe I’ll send you some comics or toys or wrestling stuff.
The first edition of this was a success! How big? The good people at UnderScoopFire linked to it in their own Weekly Scoop. Check out that article at the link and look around their site for awhile too.
I’m going to lose a lot of points here. Elise and I were playing an iPod game for a few months. Then we got all pissed off with it and stopped. But we missed the game after awhile, and there were updates so we gave it another chance. The freaking thing wont connect to Facebook, as it is supposed to do. You play, your Facebook friends send you gifts, and leveling up takes place. This would assume that the stupid thing actually connects. Mine didn’t connect, and I had to delete not only the game app multiple times but also Facebook. Finally I get it all to work and I tell Elise that the game works much easier now. She deletes everything and starts over only for her game to now not work properly.
The embarrassing thing is that this game causing all the trouble is My Little Pony.
I know I know. Its absurd. But when the game goes well its a fun time waster. Unfortunately the game just doesn’t go well most of the time. We’re back in the same pissed off place we were months ago. I would think that maybe the game would be fixed, but its from GameLoft. I’ll have less of a wait if I get in line now for GhostBusters 3.
This might be the biggest first world problem I’ve ever bitched about publicly. I am well aware of this. Lets move on before the mocking begins.
No murders in town this week. However there was a bomb threat. Well, not really but that’s the way it looked. One of the local grocery stores was shut down with no one in or out of the parking lot. Turns out a cell phone ended up in the mail box and started to beep due to low battery. No idea how or why the phone ended up in there, but it did. Someone walked by, heard the beeping, and in this day and age – especially after the Boston Marathon – assumed someone had put a homemade bomb in the mailbox. On the one hand I’m upset we’re living in a world where this is viewed as a possibility. On the other hand I’m very happy that local police took this seriously enough because of the world we’re living in. Its either a waste of time or a horrible tragedy. There is no in between. I’d rather have people investigate nothing than ignore a something.
We started putting stuff up on Facebook Garage Sales and Craigslist. I’ll include the DVD list after the main part of this post in case any of my lovely readers will want some. Couple bucks for the items, couple for shipping, and its all yours. Who knew babies and all their things took up so much space?
I re-caulked the tub today. Our rent is cheap and the place isn’t too bad but the landlord has done shit work here. Have I gone into details about his cob jobs around the house? If not let me know and I’ll write all about it next week. Its not at Extreme Makeover Home Edition level yet but there’s a lot of shit he’ll have to fix whenever we move out.
I have worked at the same (unnamed) place for almost 4 years now. The nepotism is through the roof and I am not on the beneficial side of it. I’ve been turned down for promotions, raises, hours and walked home in the snow at night multiple winters. After all of this I end up with one person there I can talk to, give a shit about, and trust. Took me 4 years to get that. So what happens? This person is gone for 6 weeks and at the end of that is when I’ll be leaving to become Mr Mom. So many times things only become good or tolerable when its over.
Wow, it looks like I’m on a first world problems role today.
So why not finish it off with a television rant?
How in the fuck is Law and Order SVU allowed on TV at 12 or 1 or whatever time in the afternoon? Especially in the summer. Yes some things are for adults and some are for kids and adults should always have the option for shows for themselves. But I really don’t like being in the break room at work and have to hear this “entertaining” show go off for an hour about how many children got raped and in what ways. Sure, its just TV and its all stories but I really don’t want these fucking horrific images in my head while I’m trying to just relax for a couple minutes and eat a sandwich. Granted, SVU isn’t one of my shows for this reason. I stopped watching Criminal Minds because of a child abduction episode that went way too far. There are so many stories that can be told so I really don’t feel the need for an entire series worth of the most heinous of acts. Oh, also there has been a LOT of true stories of such fucked up tales in recent papers and news sites.
Sure that was a downer to go out on, but last week was about murders. Lets see if I can be all happy next week.
