Goodbye 2012 and good riddance.

That year was memorable for all of the wrong reasons.

I could only find one redeeming quality to the year and that was the movie slate.

that humbug was slow roasted in my shoes for 17 hours of pure unadulterated hell after working for 17 hours the previous day with only 6 hours for rest. Problem is there was a change in venue when my landlady's family all show up at her place instead of her going elsewhere because she had the only sturdy house and there was a tornado watch in effect. Needless to say it was WAY too loud to sleep. Then a tornado knocks the power out where I work an hour before i show up to work. the place has a generator, but it can't run everything so we had to turn off the AC and the grill vent kept tripping its circuit breaker. needless to say tempers were flying and I was just trying to make it til morning.

somehow I made it, I was ready to breathe fire by time i got home and apparently so was the small ceramic heater that i use to heat my room. I turn it on, lay down, and I hear this odd popping noise. i look to see the thing belching flames sparks and smoke. I open the window and hurl the thing into the yard. at this point I'm tired, agitated, cold, AND my nerves were rattled. after letting the ice cold weather in and the smoke out I tried to sleep, but couldn't because my face was practically numb from the cold. I ended up going to walmart to buy a new heater, which took the last bit of money I had. I ended up eating ramen noodles the entire week because it was all I could afford.

It also doesnt help that I wake up that night with my left hand so bad off that I couldn't grip anything because i couldn't even bring my thumb to my fingers due to incredible stiffness. and for some reason I spent the next 3 days sleeping for 16-20 hours a day. I'd wake up, move about, go back to sleep for another 8 hours, get up, move about, go back to sleep for another 8 hours. I just could not stay awake.

Needless to say, next time my boss pulls that shit, I'm raising hell about it.


I'm not crazy, everyone else is.

One small advantage to working Union, they may be able to work us long hours ( although our normal work day is 12 hours or work & 1 hour of break) I've seen those 17 + hour days many times !
They have to give us a minimum of 10 hours off, they can't even call you in for many shifts earlier than that ...because of safety concerns & insurance liability. You can't have an exhausted half asleep rigger 50+ feet in the air trying to work safely

Meh, small potatoes. That was the impression I got off of Anonymous' facebook page when they posted the image (which is where I found it, not sure which article you are referring to).

In other news, the KKK is also counter-protesting Westboro.

Yes. The KKK.

Nice. I desperately need as new phone. When used for anything heavier than texting, it has a current battery life of about 30 seconds. 3-year old Blackberry about ready to be put out to pasture. Looking at a Galaxy Note or S3 if I can afford it.

I have a ZTE Warp through Boost Mobile, it's pretty kick-ass. I don't know all the spec's on it but it cost me about 200$ and I only pay 60$ service every month (including insurance, truly unlimited data and unlimited voice/text). Not a bad deal considering for an equivalent phone and service plan, I would've paid probably a fair amount less for the phone, but would be paying twice as much per month. Over the length of a contract, it would've cost more than I pay with Boost Mobile, and my payments shrink over time as I pay my bill on time. Yay.

I had an old trooper of a phone. Not a smart phone, but it has been dropped well over 100 times, and it has been through at least two washes.

So my wife got me a new RAZRM for Christmas. (She used our free upgrade for me).

Still getting used to the 'smart' part of it. I'm not much of a smart phone user either way. All smart I'll probably use on it will be the occasional internet reference search and the downloading of th entire Angry Birds collection. I'm hopeful that the bluetooth on this one will actually work with my car as well. Other than that's it's the usual dumb texting, pictures, and calls.

Well I've survived several heart attacks, & slowly trying to get back to normal....which because of an enlarged heart, can never happen ...but I can still improve ( I can also go downhill as well ~:/

On the phone subject
In 2009 I bought a Iphone 3GS, it still works great.
Battery lasts for days when it's on standby & only used for phone calls & i get several hours of game & online time before needing to recharge.
Also I have had it in an Otter case, defender series since i bought it & IMO it is the only reason the phone is still in one piece & working!

you would like a taste of your own medicine doc? I bet he would on occasion.

sometimes it's the simple solution that works best, i reckon. I would have never thought of it myself.

Drinking any cola is bad for you !
I am not even allowed the occassional drink of any cola.
THese soft drinks are a leading cause of osteoporosis & have been shown to cause more incidents of broken bones in children who consume them !
THey effect the PH level of our bodies, the higher the acidic level, the more suseptible we are to illness. Our bodies attempt to return to a higher alkali & to do so will strip calcium directly from our bones to do so !
Our bodies best level is a 7.4 PH so slightly alkali, any introduction that attempts to change our levels to a more acidic level causes immediate reaction in the body !

Do yourself a favor, particularly if its cold/flu season or you are feeling ill stay away from soft drinks ...period !

I have a galaxy nexus. I bought it off ebay so I could keep my unlimited data. It plays nice with my nexus 7 tablet. Smartphones are pretty awesome.

I believe this above comment should get the recognition it deserves as being a 'huge understatement ' !

Perhaps we should take the time through 2013 to find any other understamtements on here & use them to judge amoungst ourselves ....which is the " biggest understatement of the year "

The apps & texts, email , online searches, camera, music storage & playback capabilities of these phones. They are awesome. I have even done job quotes & then e-mailed it, invoicing etc all from my phone ...no need to get to a computer. Mine wakes me up beeps when its time to take my pills, reminds me of appointments, they are a really useful piece of equipment. Once you get one & start using it ... a simple phone will just not cut it any more !

Things could cause accidents. My husband's new car has Sirius XM, like mine, but his has the screen. If you're listening to a game, it displays periods/quarters and what the score is. I suppose it could also display replays and the X's and O's...but think of how many crashes that would cause.
