Winning Popularity Contests

I bought a FitBit it’s pretty cool and it has helped motivate me to walk more.Unfortunatly though it makes an eczema  type rash on my wrist. I like it though (the fit bit, not the rash).
I have also stopped drinking Pepsi. It’s been a week and a half I don’t miss it really. I used to drink 2-5 a day and it was getting out of control. Lost 5 pounds too.
Birthday was fun! Drank way too much and was hurting for 2 days LOL I also managed to piss some people off... meh I’m forty now and don’t really care. That’s a lie; I do care, but what’s done is done!
Really I only care about one person(that I pissed off), and I’m hoping she’ll get over it. She is a longtime friend(20+ years) and we kind of have a flirty relationship (she doesn’t live here or in Tbay) and texting after several Jagar is not a good idea (incase you needed advice) << Don’t do what I did!
Work seems to be picking up again and I’m hoping it stays that way. Not to curse it but all this time off is making me stir crazy. I can’t go anywhere incase they call and there’s only so much you can do without spending money. Well i’m off to the bar! Cheers!

Can’t Spell “Sucker” Without U.

Hola Amigos,

It’s been a weird couple of months. Works been slow and my motivation has gone with it.
I did go write my Mag exam(no results yet), and I signed up for the dye course in February.
When I get both of those tickets I can maybe move back to TBay where housing is affordable and still be able to work out here earning a decent salary. That’s the plan anyway....and you know how those go.
Turning 40 in a couple of days.
That’s been on my mind a lot these past weeks; trying to figure out what I want to do when I grow up. What I’d rather be doing and what I should be doing are two different animals. Mid life crisis coming right up! LOL
I’ve learned a lot about people these past few years and yes it took me a while, but the point is I learned.
Not sure if you read the previous post of the girl that flaked out and disappeared from our relationship? Halloween night my phone rings and I’m out with some buddies. She’s calling me because she is stranded downtown and can’t get a cab.
She knows I live downtown and I’m a sucker so I tell her “come to the pub, I’ll get you an Uber and pay me later” She came and had a quick beer then proceeded with some (what i think) is a story on how her friends kid never came home and she had to get to her friends ASAP. OK I call her an Uber; cost me $40(primetime prices), and she got to where she needed to go. She calls me after says they’re playing cards and having beers if I wanted to come by. So I did (another $20 in Uber) It was fun. We spent the night together and just like she whooshed back into my life she whooshed right back out again.
I texted her a few times in the following days and the responses were vague. for example:
Me- Hey! What are you up to tonight? Wanna do something?
Her- Laundry
Me- OK well it has to be done, but if you’re bored later gimme a buzz
NO response from her
Needless to say I won’t be as nice next time; and have been noticing a trend where she uses people.

Summertime And The Living’s Easy

My Jeep is at the Doctor. I should get it back today, and being the start of the long weekend, I really hope that happens! They gave ma a rental. Dodge Charger. It’s pretty peppy, but I really am not a car guy. Nor can I afford the photo radar bombs I would get if I drove it full time LOL

Last week was insanely busy at work. This week not so much.
I care but, not really as it’s summertime. I also hate waiting around to see if the phone rings
I’m debating turning it off for the Summer.
Probably won’t have a job come Winter if I did that LOL Meh
I’ve also been debating buying another house. I like where I live(neighbourhood wise) in my shoebox apartment, but would like a garage to tinker in
I also don’t want to get into a 400k mortgage. That means I’d have to work and when work is slow I would be stressed. Living’s not so easy when you’re stressed

Boat Drinks

Works slow.
I hurt my back last week and needed a few days off; Check that, I said I needed a few days away from climbing ladders, but I can work if there is a shop(and there are), where all work is on the ground.
Anyway now this week has Canada day right in the middle of it so chances are not much work wise is going to be done.
I don’t mind enjoying the summer, but would like to work enough to pay the rent and not dip in to my  savings.
Been thinking about giving up my trade and going back to work for the city. I’d have a schedule, a steady income, straight days, and be off by 3pm! Those are a few pros.;
The cons are the money would be cut in half, no taking holidays whenever I like, and I like my job when I’m working.
The girl situation is obsolete(the trainwreck for obvious reasons, and the one I liked).
I’m OK with that, but would like to find a suitable match one day.

Leather Jacket

The date was a bit of a train wreck! That’s all I’m going to say about that.
Work has been pretty busy considering. I worked my ass off yesterday, and was pretty sore this morning. That’s Ok though, I need the exercise LOL. Tonight should be an easier shift and back to working my ass of Wednesday.
Oh well it keeps my mind off things, and when it slows down I think I’ll go on a mini vacation.

Salmon Is The Other Pink Meat

Went out last night, met a girl and now I have a date tonight. Yes it’s that easy, or maybe I was lucky.
I’m still bothered by the one who left me hanging(see previous post) Finding one I like is a challenge, but I’m open minded so we’ll see how it goes.
I went to Costco today (don’t do that on a Sunday),  got a few things and I was annoyed in about 2 minutes of being there! People just stand around,
 eat free samples, block the isles, talk on the phone or to one another. I’m there to get in and get out; Kinda like this post!

Girl You Want Me To Chase You? I Don’t Even Chase My Whiskey.

Hello there, 
I haven’t been here apparently since 2013. The good news(for some) is that I’m still alive and things are AOK!  Truth is I don’t think to come here much. I’m not the type to air my dirty laundry especially when I know people read this. Once in a while I think I should air it on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter (which I don’t tweet often), but I don’t. That doesn’t leave much to chat about.
 There’s been a bit of “life” happening as well.
I sold my house in my hometown and re located to the place I’ve been living for the last 4 years. Do I like it here? In some aspects I do and in some I don’t. Guess that is the same everywhere. The only thing keeping me here is my Job, so far that’s OK, but I’m starting to wonder.

I met a girl I actually liked. For me finding a “girlfriend” is pretty easy, but finding one I like proves to be a challenge. I thought things were going well and turns out not so much. What drives me nuts is people who always have their phone in hand and answer your texts 2 hours later if at all. When we first started dating she used to text me, call me all the time. Then she “flaked" out and became distant. I get that people aren’t always good together, but I thought I would at least get a reason why she decided to vanish. She finally told me I didn’t put enough effort into seeing her. and always expected her to come to me.  I responded with an apology and some questions, and she was gone again! Eventually I got fed up and told her “you have all this time to post on FB, but can’t take 12 seconds to answer me”  Take care, I’m done.
She responded with I’m not going to fight with you, Goodnight.
No answers to my questions, and she blocked me from FB. Normally I don’t care, but for some reason this one got to me.
I’m going to try to blog more now, as I actually missed it, now that I’m done writing this post.
