the second job & the legal ride

Watching The Sopranos is like having a part-time job late at night alongside the full-time job I already have. We completed the third disc tonight with one more to go before we get to Part 2. K$ had a good point. Why did they go with calling it Season 6 Part 2 instead of Season 7? They didn’t have “parts” for the previous five, right?

Today is technically Friday. Today is payday. Today is the last day of the work week before the Memorial Day weekend. I hope the weather clears up and the humidity subsides.

I have a bulletin board waiting to be hung up and a sign I had custom-made waiting to be lacquered and hung up. Life is good apart from the usual monotony.

My car is finally legal. On Tuesday, Mare & I went by Nelda’s to renew my registration and have her car’s title changed over to her name. I had to be at work by 3, so Mare took care of getting my car inspected. The sticker expired April of last year, so I’ve been driving illegally for some time.

I took my car for inspection back in October to some shady place (Shell on southbound 183 before the Braker light. Yeah, I’m calling you douchebags out!), and they wouldn’t pass the car yet we have big ol’ gas-guzzling SUVs and shit-kicker trucks rolling all over this state hurting the ozone layer much worse than my sedan. I took my car the first time, and it failed. The second time they fed me bullshit about their machine being down. The third time I went in, the person helping me was getting everything ready and some ¢unt that was behind the counter was telling him the machine was still down when it supposedly wasn’t. They “inspected” my car, and I was fed the same shit. I haven’t had any problems with my car for the 2+ years I’ve had it, and the check engine light is not on. I knew they just wanted to keep the inspection fee rather than have to pay it when they passed my car.

Anyway, I finally had the chance to take my vehicle to Carmichael which I should have done in the first place.

I still get that paranoia with the cops and my stickers being out, but the car’s legal again so the feeling will go away soon.


Find time to relax away from home. If you are planning a vacation with your family, then consider a trip to Branson. The city has many attractions such as: live music, museums, shopping, golf and the great outdoors. The summer days are going away one by one, so now is the time to enjoy the warm weather in another city.
