Los Angeles

I have just placed a bet with my sister Dalia who lives in Los Angeles California. She predicted My dad, mom, brother, and me would move out to LA before all my hairs would turn gray. Expecting to win this bet in the next year will be difficult. Thinking about LA gives me images of warm weather, beaches, beautiful people, and traffic.

What my sister enlightened me on is the real reason why I should relocate. The people are just like me, funny, good looking, smart and did not go to a great college. She promised me employers would not hold it against me that I went Ohio Wesleyan, a small liberal arts school in Ohio. Maybe this explains how Arnold Schwarzenegger is Governor.  Their is also a magical place that only can be found in LA. It is not Disneyland but an opportunity to make more money. It sounds tempting but I will pass.

Mercedes

Blogs were not posted on Monday and Tuesday, I was busy playing a game. The game is called I am embarrassed to be driving a C- Class Mercedes. The C Class Mercedes is introductory model. In a two day span I counted nine C-Class Mercedes without the metallitic C symbol on the back of the car. Mercedes put it on the car when it was built but mysteriously disappeared.  The owners are hoping somebody on EBay will sell them a symbol that makes them look like they paid more for the car than they actually did.  Everyone knows the C stands for cheap but it is expensive with the basic model with no extras starting at $33,725.

The owner of a C Class Mercedes does not like the word sale, bargain, outlet, or special. Those words are scary. Their house is in  best location with the smallest square footage. Job title is more important than job pay. Ironic because they need extra money to afford their symbol.

Evite

The fourth of July weekend has been a perfect time for me to reflect about friends and family.  I spent a large majority of the time thinking  about the great relationships I have and how lucky I am. Realizing some my friends i have known for twenty plus years makes me feel old.  At my small gathering this weekend I noticed there was a couple people missing. They relationships that I had for so long had crumbled.

In life you can either go forward or backward, nuetral is never an option. Thanks to poor decisions of gambling, drinking, and drugs some people have been erased. They maybe still roaming the earth just not in my life. Guilt crosses my mind. Maybe I could of done something to help them. They always make it seems it was the circumstance that put them in this situation or it was somebody elses fault. They only person they can blame is themselves.

EBay

July 5, 2006 at 12:55 pm (complaint, credit card, EBay, internet, power seller, real estate, realtor, system, Uncategorized, wordpress)

“Wow what a great deal we should buy this,” the words from Ted our project manager about the server for sale on EBay. This server was worth six times for what the “Power Seller” was asking for it. A deal we could not refuse. Buying on-line can be a scary thing especially if the person your buying from does not have a direct name, address, and telephone number. I whipped out the credit card put faith in the system and yet have to receive my item even though the item was paid for on June 22, 2006.

I have filed a complaint with EBay and am waiting to hear back from the seller which he has ten days to respond. That’s a long time to come up with a creative excuse. EBay’s protection policy is not adequate because you only get a fraction of what you paid. Today begins a new day. A day which I walk into a store , meet a real sales person, and buy a server that exists.

Independence Day

I am hot, It is so hot. Repeat that twenty times and you would think you were watching the Simple Life with Paris Hilton According to my girlfriend the only thing that is hot is my room. Like a broken record reminding me I do not have air conditioning in my house every five minutes. Anything less than an ice box for temperature is not acceptable. The temperature with the fans on is around seventy. About forty degress less than the Middle East region where our militiary is stationed. For our troops protecting our freedom, I salute you for your brave efforts. Have a happy 4th of July.
