So when flying out to attend my son's Army graduation, I went online and payed for airport parking in advance.
I arrived at the lot and witnessed the attendant turn a vehicle away saying there was no more room on the lot.
I showed my reservation and was allowed in with the attendant saying she hopes I find a parking space. Wait, What?! She hopes I find a parking space?! I better. That's what I paid in advance for. So anyway, there were two spaces left and I had to squeeze the Hummer into one.
Upon my return, I drove to the exit, handed my ticket to the attendant and he told me the cost. For some forgetful reason I paid the charge forgetting I had already paid online. Luckily I saved the receipt because once I caught it after reviewing my bank transactions I was able to call, scan and send a copy of the receipt and they issued me the refund.
Growing older....But still AWESOME!
That moment when something arrives in the mail and requires assembling and it clearly says requires 2 people to assemble.
thats me.... lol two man job person...... and the last famous words......
"I can do it."
Shit when i assembled the swingset on christmas eve in the cold....i didnt even have the right length bolts...that came with it, and....all the insturctions were on one picture and page. I have lived at three different apts and i still use it to this day. Sometimes you can do it....even if you not supposed to...which i love. Cause then, everybody is like "How the fuck?" And your answer is "I dont know how the fuck" but when beginners luck happens everytime, is it beginners luck? I can tell....youll figure it out. But hey if you do ever need that help, i will help you...and .more then just help yourself...if u want me to. But i can tell, your not like that....lol. you and lord fangore.
So I grew up living in a house and area that contained rats, roaches, mosquitoes, spiders and ants.
In the house I live in now, it rare to see any insects, however, seasonally I'd have to spray for the small amount of ants and spiders I may see.
So that leads me into my story as to what just happened. I had to relieve myself by depositing a #2. It wasn't the type where you sit down and wait, and wait and struggle to get it out. No, this was the type you better sit down quick and hope you don't spray the seat.
So as I'm doing my business, I look over into the shower and see this small spider just chilling in mid-air. Well I knew it wasn't magic so that means there was a single spider web in my guest bathroom shower. So now I have to spray to keep any additional spiders or ants out of my home.
But while staring at that spider I had the question in my mind is there one underneath my toilet seat that's going to attack at any minute? However, I was in no position to stand-up and check since things were already in motion.
I'm happy to announce it had no friends that came out to say hello. LOL!
A real horror story here.
Horrified me anyway.
Someone has seen Arachnophobia.
I try to not let those thoughts slink into mind while in similar situations. My gods. lol
Ummm... That might have been a tad TMI.
But I feel much closer to you now as a friend. Just wash your hands before you give hugs.

Some feel the US Military is not an option that a minority would willingly choose if given other opportunities. Well sorry to blow that theory out of the water because when one compares the benefits offered by the US Military to the benefits offered by other institutions, it's just as competitive than they are.
Furthermore, to think kids grow up playing war and being physically inclined to be just a white collar or blue collar worker holding down a 9-5 job with no excitement....well those individuals have no idea just how much fun and excitement can be had in the military.
I'd rather take my chances in the military than being subjected to the treatment of civilians of any race and wealth by some fellow citizens.'
Sure, not every person join the military for God & Country, but not every person join because they have no other opportunities to choose from either.
Seeing my Son become the self-sufficient man I believed he could become with enough encouragement, setting the best example I could as a Parent, providing for him the best I could, not making everything too easy, but providing just enough help when needed and watching him earn his accomplishments, making positive life choices and taking responsibility for his negative life choices and mistakes, never giving up, staying positive and finding the humor in life's challenges makes me so PROUD of HIM....
Oh and me to have the titles...Dad/Father.
So some of the funny things that happened while in MO at the hotel.
1. When I was swimming in the pool, a couple of guys got in and was swimming parallel to me in their own swim lane and one even apologize thinking that he had splashed me by accident. As soon as I got out of the pool, they were acting like it was Wrestle Mania in there. Body Slams, Suplexes, water was going everywhere...Haha!
2. Once I was waiting for the elevator when a family walked around the corner to wait as well. Their teen daughter didn't see me since she had yet to turn the corner and yelled out.."I really have to pee". The look on her face when she saw me had her family cracking up. She was like, "Hey, I didn't see him. Oh well, it's out there now though."....Haha!
3. One time I got into the elevator and these other two guys entered. The one guy looked at the other guy and said, "This reminds me of the movie 'Devil'. Maybe this isn't the right time to think about that movie though."....We all cracked up since I too had seen the movie where the devil had disguised himself as one of the passengers on a stuck elevator and whenever the lights went off, he'd kill one of them...LOL!
4. So on check-out day I got up at 5 am and took a shower. As I was putting on hand lotion, I had to shake the small travel bottle that was allowed on the plane to get more out. Well the next thing I knew lotion went flying everywhere. When everything settled, it looked like I had walked onto a porn shoot at the wrong time where the actor hit everything, but the girl. I had to wipe lotion off the wall, the top of my head, my forehead, my eyebrows, my cheek and my nose....Haha..smh!
5. Then I dressed, paid my bill, got into the rental and couldn't find my boarding passes I took the time to ensure I printed out. WTF?! Had to take the time to go back into the hotel and print them out all over again. Sometimes the best plans, no matter how well executed, still remind us that Mr. Murphy's Law is always present...LOL!
Everything in moderation.
You can never have too much AWESOME.

Some of you are concerned that I'm like a Star shining too bright and that I might burn out, that I'm sitting too high on a Pedestal and I have too far to fall and that I can not possible sustain my level of Awesomeness, that it will soon fade away, but I tell you be not afraid for if my light burn out, I will dance in the dark, if I fall from my Pedestal, I will laugh as I fall and enjoy the wind on my face, lastly do not worry about my Awesomeness fading away for it is forever in my DNA.
That is differently a Man-which.
LOL I am never making sandwiches again!
Awwww....Don't be like that. Hahaha!
LMAO! ...If the hair was a little more red...you might have her peg-ged.
This is deplorable! My sandwich making skills are beyond question!
You're all grounded. NO sammiches for chu!!!
I'm just waiting on Raven to post just one picture in my Journal....I know he can do it. ^_^
hahaha Not if he wants to eat this week!
Well maybe that will all depend on which type of sammich you're going to be making....LMAO!!!!
Some wonder why do Coven Masters actively seek "active" members?
For the accumulation of 'FAVOR'...It's about having FUN & the 'FAVOR'!
The challenge for House/Coven Masters is figuring out a way to motivate their members to do the following:
(1) View the maximum amount of Pages they can daily.
(2) Spend the maximum amount of Time they can on VR daily.
The Society System
Favor of the Prince is earned by House or Coven members through a member's level of activity on Vampire Rave. Favor is an important portion of the House/Coven score (34%). After Favor has been earned, it may be traded or given to another
House or Coven. It can be considered currency, and is often used to facilitate trades between a House or Coven.
All Favor earned by a member belongs to the House or Coven Master. It is up to the Master how Favor will be used. This includes Sire's who have chosen to join a House or Coven versus starting their own Coven.
Statistics are maintained showing how much Favor a member has earned. This statistic is not what Favor the member possesses (Their Favor belongs to their Master). However, this statistic is useful for Master's who are considering trading members.
Favor is earned in the following manner:
25 page views equals 1 Favor. 1 page view equals 1/25 Favor.
15 minutes of time spent equals 1 Favor. 1 second of time spent equals 1/900 Favor.
Although the primary method of earning favor is through website activity, it is not the only way. The Prince may distribute Favor in any way The Prince deems fit. Often times The Prince is very unfair about how such disbursements are awarded.

The 12 Hour Limit
Vampire Rave, along with all Dark Network sites, have a 12 hour per 24 hour period limit. This limit applies to your Status.
If you are logged into the Dark Network for longer than 12 hours, you will not continue to accrue Page Views and Time Spent that counts toward your Status. You can continue to browse Dark Network pages, but your stats won't increase until the daily clock resets.
This limit is not timed as a continuous log in. It's recorded on a 24 hour clock. 3 hours here, 6 hours there, etc.
If you hit this limit, you will be shown a warning message. At this point your Time Spent and Pages Viewed no longer counts until the daily clock resets. The 24 hour clock runs from 12am to 12am -0 GMT (London time).
If you're on the US east coast (-5 GMT), this means a user who has hit the limit can start accruing stats again at 7pm. This is when the daily clock is reset. The server does not adjust for Daylight Savings Time, so during DST, if you're in a DST region, you need to add an hour (8pm for the US east coast).
The 12 hour limit was put in effect to help thwart those who were trying to cheat the Status System. Many users were using automated programs to keep them logged in 24 hours per day. These users were wasting VR resources, bandwidth, cheating VR advertisers, falsely increasing their status, falsely increasing the Favor of their Society, and more. It is for these reasons the 12 hour limit exists.
If you *really* need to be logged into Vampire Rave or other Dark Network sites for more than 12 hours per day, and you need to accumulate Pages Viewed and Time Spent, you have the option of a second account. However, if you maintain 2 accounts you must follow the rule that all accounts be premium.

Often times one's mood can be improved no matter how bad one's day is going if one only smiled more or found something to laugh about. It can also improve someone's else mood.
I once gave a server a $20 tip for a $10 meal just because she smiled every time she came to my table....Oh, and she had face dimples. ^_^
Payne, she's not a hater....She's a sandwich maker in denial.
Raven, I'll give you all my honor for 7 straight days if you post just one picture in my journal of Payne making you one of what I am sure are the many sandwiches she prepares for you with love....with a little toothpick and that foil wrapped around it shoved in the middle of your sandwich....And a wet nap on the side. ^_^
Some people post online what they want you to believe as far as how their life is.
I post online how my life truly is.
Don't judge me because I choose not to be fake.
My life isn't perfect.
But, don't hate me because it's AWESOME!
Wait a minute, on second thought feel free to hate me.
It's not like I really care. I mean seriously? Which of my bills do you pay again?......Exactly!
Lol - preach it LM. I've got nothing but respect for you mate, you are the real deal!
I agree 100%. Why should I care about what a internet floating head thinks about me and my life. If it's not the IRS then who gives a shit :) I dig it.
Payne says quit typing and make us sammiches! LMAO
Wait, What? LOL!
What kind of -sammiches- are we having?
