There's only three types of people in the world: those that can do the math, and those that can't.

Head 'Em Up! Move 'Em Out!
Actually, me. Lease signed, cable scheduled and furniture delivery planned. Yee-haw! Was actually getting a little melancholy about being in RedTown most of the week, but lately (as in, the last hour or so) feel a shitload of a lot better about it.
Since this kicked off a lot of peeps at home have used the opportunity do dump their agendas on yours truly. I've bitched about said agendae before. Guess you could say they're assholes. This afternoon had to put my sister here off FB feed. Don't really care to hear how spiffy CastroCare is. For the love of Murgatroid, won't they ever shut up? I mean, they've got Obama, and still it is not enough!
Also the ex is hassling me and my daughter for some bullshit with Child Support. This ended in January. The agency had a prosecutor at the hearing. The hearing declared it finished. I don't know what the ex wants, but in no ways should she drag my kid into it. WTF: how much more kangarooey can the process be in her favor, and still it is not enough!
So, I continue to gobble down local delacacies. Today I demolished enough beef and grilled onions at Eat at Joes to make a half dozen vegans weep. But as far as leaving the abovementioned drek behind, no regrets.
Established, or at least applied for a lease on the weekday location downstate. Very busy coordinating all the setup and logistics and whatnot. Whatnot is a lot easier than it used to be with the internet and all. FarmBook is down to minimmum. Really connected a lot with elementary school classmates. A lot of fun. Mix of bloggers and liberal relatives has pretty much cheesed off said realitives. Too bad. It may have finally sunk in what I think of stupid hate America rants.
Busy now getting all the paperwork together for the new job, and apartment hunting down there. I remember doing this many years ago when finishing up college. It wasn't fun then, but can handle it better now. My daughter is taking this remakably well. Good for her.
I am going to accept a job offer downstate. It's a two hour drive from here, but here has nothing and this offer cannot be found anywhere around here. This is going to be a very busy time, uncomfortably so for the first month or two. Will keep the house up here, my daughter probably inhabiting it this summer, and plan to spend weekends here. Pretty damn intimidating. Sticking around here and not working is not an option.
Don't know if the girlfriend is ticked or not. Had to bring it up last night, and she knew I was looking at this job. She had just gotten back from a vacation and it seemed like I was taking a healthy poop on her mellow, but she needs to know the score.
Like I said, intimidating. Will need to set up a local Fortress of Database Excellence down there and be here on the weekends. Watch for a lot of Cappy's dollars take wing over the corn kissed fields of Franklin County real soon.
Why do liberal absolutely go ape-shit against Farmville? I mean, WTF? So it's a big waste of time. So big deal. None of they bidness. Every single goddam one of 'em are as ticked off against this thing as they were against Bush.
Crazy holiday randomness continues. Daughter goes back to the big city bright and early (too early) tomorrow AM. Girlfriend off to see family for a week on Saturday. Man, the job hunt is one thing. I've really gotta tamp down on this randomness. And am now enjoying golden SQL goodness.
The people have made their choice! Mainly, the local GOP primary ballot has been cast (me) 'cause that's all, folks for Cleveland and here are the decisions:
Voted for a High School classmate for Domestic Relations judge. Never met her, was part of a class > 1000 kids. Anyway, her name ain't Russo, Celebreeze, Sweeny, Corrigan or McMonagle so she's in.
Voted for best fit to two minor state offices. Peeps, you gotta take a chill pill! All candidates for Secretary of State and Auditor were good, and it ain't gonna make a big differenced which ones get in, if at all. None of 'em will personally guard the State Line from Obamacare, et al. Beating each other up over who is the truest conservative means squat in these cases. Both have to be honest, and my pick is the candidate with the best fit to the office. Unless we can clone Josh Mandel. Once we can do that, we need him to take all the offices.
As expected there was a no show to take down the aptly named Congresswoman Marcia Fudge. I did one of my kid's High School friends a favor and got him that job. Actually, he's the guy that got her away from the hippie B.S., and moving toward religion and a clearer view of politics. Also, he came here from a part of the former CCCP, beloved of liberals. Man, you never see a former Soviet subject and flaming Obamanite in the same room. The Dohrn lovers never will face up to what their Russian pals inflicted on regular people, or why said people fled to the USA and not the other way around. I tells ya, it clears the Commos out of the room like a ripe, juicy fart.
A lot of the awkwardness re: working around the Passover schedule for my daughter, and Easter for girl friend is gone. Since I'm now job hunting I've ditched a lot of those services that enabled me to don the tights and cape and attend to Strategic Air Command level database emergencies, which means I'm getting up earlier on weekends to tend to stuff around the house.
Fooled around with settings and setup on the new Toro this morning. Hank Hill would approve. Except I don't need ass falsies, like he does.
Pretty chopped up first half-week of not going in to work. A lot of ceremonies attendant to the headcutcount thereof on Monday and Tuesday. By that time I just wanted to get the thing over with and hit the bricks, which I have been doing for the last couple of months while dutifully attending to remaining tasks at the former job. OK. Daughter is with me for Pesach, and it's a little hinky attending to where she needs to be, she being way more frum than I. Job leads pop up now and then. Going to make use of the outplacement advice I get starting next week. At least it gets me out of the Fortress of Database Excellence a couple time a week, and given the fact that Cleveland has gone down the drain isn't too healthy jobs-wise these days I'm using all resources available.
