Which (combined with the bonus) is what happened (not having to pay sky high rents or State income taxes also helped). 


Seeing in one check how much you really pay in taxes (versus having it deducted paycheck by paycheck) is an .....eye opening experience. 

 

But, when I do get taxes withheld, we're still talking 40% off the top for commissions. It's brutal.

The strorage unit compound that I rent was raided by methheads. Went down to assess what was taken.

Hundreds of my blu rays are gone. Including the tote I kept all of my Criterions in.

All my fucking Criterions. All. I checked to see if I had any at home. Nope. I don't own one Criterion anymore. I'm going to cry myself to death.

If you haven't already, contact any and all local pawn shops and/or used record/video stores to be aware if someone comes in to sell a bunch of stuff.

 

Also, check Craigslist for questionable listings. It would be worth it to check the listings for nearby cities as well.

Who knew meth heads had such exceptional taste in cinema?

I went into the largest pawn shops in the area this morning and I'm also really chummy with all the folks working at our local FYE.

I'll try my best, but this feels hopeless. Devastating, man.

They took what they could. I think there was around a dozen big plastic totes of movies, the two farthest back are the only remaining. They also took several video game consoles, I'm going to GameStop later.

You should check your homeowners or rental contents insurance. You should be covered if it was a proper storage facility and you had a contract. It's worth a shot.

I don't mean to seem un-sympathetic, but why do you have a dozen big plastic containers of blu-rays and multiple consoles in a storage locker?

Guys, I found a bunch of Criterions that fell off a truck...

As a dropoff for your drug-smuggling operation?

So one can store the dismembered body parts of their victims using a clever anagram as the rental name?

Growing a beard is hard fucking work.
post #10615 of 10623
It's a tragic fact of life: there is no way to go from clean-shaven to a proper beard without passing through all the embarassing intermediate stages where you look like you're revisiting puberty so hard you expect the acne to come back.
post #10616 of 10623
Oh no, I have a full, full beard after just 8 weeks of doing fuck all to my face.

I just don't look like the twats on instagram who look cool as fuck. And 20 years younger.

I look like I sleep in doorways.

Current beard threat level: Bugenhagen.

Go with the "Stach. You know, like the one your Avatar has. And start smoking Pipes.

The best advice I can give is to find where you'd like the edges of your beard and give yourself a good shave to help define them. Having clean neck and cheek lines goes a long way toward turning a hobo growth into a presentable beard. If you're not sure where you want those lines to be then go to an old school barber and ask them for their judgment, that's what I did when I first grew a beard.

Also get a beard trimmer and find a length setting that suits you, some parts of my beard grows faster than other parts and trimming it all down to the same length once a week is a big help in preventing the ragged look.

Yep off to my first barber trim this morning. Terrified I'm going to come out looking like Riker. In which case, fuck it, it's all coming off.

Christ. I've gone from Hans Reinhardt to a fucking geography teacher.

Fuckers go to go.

My olds have been staying for the last 4 weeks.

The near constant, passive-aggressive, criticism of our parenting skills from my step-mother is the tiredest of tired shit.

Fuuuuuccccck.
post #10622 of 10623
Wait, are you parenting your parents?
post #10623 of 10623
The olds. Never heard it put that way. I like it..
