Random stuff [Feb. 21st, 2005|07:29 pm]

Well on a personal note I got a job interview Thursday and few more coals in the fire. I want to get out of the current job cause the boss hasn't paid me in 2 weeks and owes me almost 600 bucks.

Sandy and I are still going great.

Saturday Night I got to go to my first Arizona Rattlers game and I have to say that Arena Football is weird. My buddy and I are pretty knowledgable in the ways of the NFL and we couldn't understand some of the rules. Also, the linebackers don't wrap a player up or try and strip the ball. Sunday night Sandy and I watched Simpsons, a little of NBA all star game and Mythbusters.

I don't know if I should be more scared about this story or the fact that CNN and the like are not covering it.

There are very few sane people left in this world as evidenced here. I didn't realize what a circus I would cause but I am having little confidence in the politics and livejournal marriage. I really didn't think that 95% LJ users would throw someone under the bus. I am just tired of getting the wrong order when I get any kind of fast food and the fact that now most gov't officials have to learn spanish. Well I have been secretly boycotting places that use seemingly illegal labor (*cough* Wal-Mart, McDonalds *cough* Sonic and some Jack in the Boxes are good about it though)

I have been fighting spyware and a virus that won't go away all day today. I woke up to the computer having 42 IE windows up and over 60 processes running (I should only have 23) so I eliminated most of it. I guess I'll try and continue fixing it cause the window keeps losing focus every 2 minutes to tell me that Norton found another trojan. Have fun.

I was amazed at all of the phony indignation over those t-shirts. And some of those posters were persistent. No matter how much logic you throw at 'em, they just cannot see the forest for the trees.

I had fun with that at first, but it grew tiresome. It is encouraging to see some like minded people out there, however.

Good luck with your computer. You need to start practicing safe computing and stay off all of those gonzo porn sites. jk :)

hehe, I blame the file sharing sites, this happens to me once every 2 weeks or so.

Ripped from Something Awful:

ok, about 30 seconds ago I got off the phone with a mexican I had to call to inform him that because he had not given his social security number we would not be able to provide his mobile phone service he had ordered. this is how it went (translated to english):

Me - "we were unable to process your order due to your social security number or drivers license number not having been entered, if I can get one of these from you I'll be able to provide you with the service you ordered"

Mexican - "oh well... the thing is that I don't have either of those" (this is the case with most of these calls)

Me - "that's understandable sir, you'll just need to call qwest directly and make special arrangements with them for your situation"

Mexican - "well, can I give you my fake social security number?"

Me - "uh, no."

Mexican - "ok I guess I'll have to call then"

I was dumbfounded that someone would so readily admit their illegality, maybe it was because I speak fluent spanish and he felt comfortable with me, but damn no one should get that confortable.
