Thursday 4-08-21: Do I have the night off?
Kat is running things down at the bar tonight, and as long as her karaoke-helper (Heather) shows up as planned then I think I can just drink tonight. I've already put in 18.8 hours down at the bar this week, and my goal is 20-ish sa week o I'm almost there. I'll be working there both tomorrow and Saturday nights so that will put me in the mid 30s for hours. We all got tested Easter Sunday for the 'rona virus, and we all came back negative so we were able to repoen the place Monday morning. All of us did the drive-through test at Walgreens, and Phil told me today those tests are wrong more than they are right for people not exhibiting symptoms. What a bunch of crap! Who knows maybe I did have the 'rona, but I don't think I did because I've been feeling great these past two days. Good energy in the gym, a good jog yesterday, and no aches and pains.
The weather today was fantastic so I had time to get my arse up on our roof to clean out the gutters and to measure for new shingles. Unfortunately we've had a leak when we get huge rainstorms. One of the leaks fried our newer microwave oven late last year. What a bunch of crap!
^Water got into the microwave and killed it. I knew it was going to happen, but I was NOT replacing our roof last fall when we had that restaurant to do.
I just did that brand new ceiling less than a year ago, too. Epic failer. The roof is only about 11.2 square because the house isn't huge so that is a bonus. The new addition roof is just fine; the main roof is needing the replacement. Basic 3-tab will be the way I go, and I think I can get it all done myself for under $2000 in materials and dump fees. Maybe? Hopefully! I haven't even priced roof shingles since early last fall when Neil and I did Jason's showroom roof. I was at Lowe's today and I noticed a basic 2x4 is $6.88. OMG WHAT A BUNCH OF CRAP! Hopefully shingles aren't too expensive or else my ass will have to staple down a giant blue tarp...
I was able to watch some of the afternoon Red Sox vs. Orioles game today, and that game was just ending before I came to update this bootleg site that no one will ever read. I joined the game in the 7th inning, and the Sox won 7-3. It was their 4th consecutive win after starting the season 0-3. There are still not many fans in the stadium due to the pandemic, but things are slowly getting back to normal. We all wear masks when out and about still. I have a MADKAT mask that I wear at the restaurant, and when I do taxes I wear a camo mask that Mom and Dad gave me as a Christmas gift. I like the camo mask because it is comfortable. I don't love wearing the masks and will be glad when we don't have to wear them anymore.
The DOW and S&P 500 closed at record highs again today, and I wonder why the stock markets are doing so well. All the government has done in the past year is mortgage our collective futures so eventually that bill has to come due. All I wanna know is why? Why are the markets doing so well in this pandemic? Especially with a fuckin' terrible president who probably barely even knows he is president anymore thanks to his old ass most likely getting dementia. I shouldn't even joke about that, but it does seem like he has one foot in the grave and one foot on a banana peel. He was talking about gun control today, and I was hoping he would just keel over because he totally sucks.
^To president Joe Biden. YOU SUCK.
Trump was a scumbag, puke pile of civilian shit but he didn't fuck around when it came to economic policy and I wish he was still in office. He was terrible, but he was by far the lesser of the evils. This country is going to be pwned so I think I should cash in my IRA and just eat the 10% early cash-in penalty on next year's taxes. I don't even have that much in the account anyway. Enough to pay a few bills and to slowly work towards a debt-free life that my ass has wanted for about a decade but that I can never achieve.
In a normal non-pandemic world tax season would be over in a week, next Thursday. However, now the season doesn't end until May 17th. The good thing about that is a day like today. I was in the tax office for about 3 total hours, I finished up some returns and had a drop-off, and I was out of there by 1500 so I had time to use my gym and get on our roof. In a different world I would have been open until 1700 so being "by appointment only" has its perks. Both yesterday and the day before I was out of there early enough to go for a jog and still be leisurely about the rest of my day. I haven't felt like I have a tight deadline to meet in a while now, and that is a great feeling.
Alright turds, all two of you who read this pathetic excuse for a website, my ass is going to make drink #3 and play some SNES Classic before I go down to the bar to either keep drinking or to work. I hope I don't have to work because I will be half in the bag. What a bunch of crap!
Saturday 4-03-21: Do I have the 'rona? I'm a
little envious of this life.
Lounging around without a care in the world. Obviously that is not even close to a realistic expectation in my world, but it is always nicce to dream a little. Truthfully if I had that little going on every day I'd probably start to go stir-crazy and just go find stuff to occupy my precious... precious time.
Today did NOT go down as planned, and that is both good and bad. Definitely more bad than good, though. I thought I'd be working tonight, but here I am drinking a rum and a coke after I had 4 coffee brandys and milk already since supper. I was going to work as the "cooler/manager" again tonight at the bar, but we are shut down until Monday at the earliest thanks to Covid-19. Gods damn 'ronavirus! One of our servers tested positive, and she lives with two other servers who worked til close last night with Kat and I along with a bunch of other staff. We found out only a few hours ago so we had to make a mad-scramble to close the place down and send everyone home. We all get tested tomorrow to see if we have the (not-so) deadly virus. What a bunch of crap!
I don't think I have rona. I feel pretty good, good enough anyway, and earlier this PM I took a nap, did DDP Yoga, and lifted weights in my bootleg gym. In hindsight I would not have taken a nap because now I can't sleep. Oh well that just gives me more time to write on this bootleg site that no one will ever read, and as an added bonus my half-drunk ass is about to go play SUPER NINTENDO. Oh Jesus, hell ya! I'm actually looking forward to it quite a bit, and at my current consumption pace I'll still be in bed by midnight or earlier. Bedtime with an open bar would have been 0300 or so and I would not have had any booze.
If not for 'rona I'd be in the middle of another hectic weekend work shift. By now we'd have some drunk people, and we'd probably have a waiting list of people wanting to come do karaoke and hang out at the new MadKat Bar. Last night was a shit-show, but we handled it well enough. I had people puking, I had to call the cops, a drunk beotch ripped a paper-towel holder off the wall in the chick bathroom, etc. Fuck I don't know why I opened a bar? Where's my psychologist gods damn it?
Having to close the bar on a Saturday night = huge financial hit. What a bunch of crap! Oh well we will just have to make up for it in other areas. I'm actually happier to be home getting drunk right now than I would be if I were working at the bar. Sometimes I like the place, but more often than not it is a pain in the arse and I miss a more simple life. Not so simple that I get to be like Tiger Lily in the photo above, though.
I'm gonna get off this bootleg site and go play Nintendo now before I am too drunk to succeed. Even when I am sober I fail at Nintendo these days. What a bunch of crap! I really love SNES Metroid. It is a fantastic game and if you disagree with me then I hate you. I probably hate you anyway, but I'll hate you a litte more...
Okay my drunk dumb ass is back and I didn't win SNES Metroid yet. However, playing the game was glorious and much-needed. I made it past the ghost-ship level, but I should go back to that level soon to get rewards that the game designers hid in walls and shit. I think you can get up to 255 missles, but I suck and have never gotten even close to that many. What a bunch of crap! Guy looks now to see how many you can get if you are great at video games...
230 Missiles, 50 Super Missiles, 50 Power Bombs, 14 Energy Tanks, 4 Reserve Tanks, and one each of Grappling Beam, X-Ray Scope, Charge, Ice Beam, Wave Beam, Spazer, Plasma Beam, Varia Suit, Gravity Suit, Morphing Ball, Bombs, Spring Ball, Screw Attack, Hi-Jump Boots, Speed Booster, and Space Jump.
Okay thank you Google. I have around 70 missles. What a bunch of crap! I don't have near maximum for the other things, too. However, I do have two reserve tanks. However, I just died so I quit and came back here to update this terrible website. I can still write pretty coherent sentences, but I have to rewind and fix them a lot. A LOT.
It got pretty late pretty fast thank you TIME WARP. I kinda get why some people just drink all the time because it does make life temporarily easier. I don't wanna be the town drunk, F that, but maybe one day I will. Earlier today I watched part of Rocky on HBO, and that movie is fucking awesome. If you disagree with me then I hate you. I probably hate you anyway, but I'll hate you a little more. I watched the part where Rocky went on his first date with Adrian, and I also saw it through the part where he hired Mickey as his trainer. Basically everything about that movie is perfect.
^Fucking awesome scene and if you disagree with me then you can gggggggggggggggeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeettttttttttttttttttttttttt oooooooooouuuuuuuuuuuuuuutttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt!
Tonight after the bar closed for COVID Kat and I finished watching Kong vs. Godzilla. So I watched one great movie today and one piece of crap movie, and it should be obvous by now which movie was a piece of shit. Rocky is a masterpiece, and Kong Vs Godzilla is a toilet. It is a bunch of crap! The monsters fought each other and then there was a mechanical monster and I hated the movie, but I was drinking so I tolerated it. Lots of CGI, lots of monster-roars, lots of carnage. They sank an aircraft carrier, and that shit pisses me off. DO NOT SINK AIRCRAFT CARRIERS IN MOVIES GODS DAMN IT 5000 + SAILORS ARE ON ONE DEPLOYED CARRIER AND THAT IS NOT SOMETHING TO JUST DO IN A MOVIE. WHAT A BUNCH OF CRAP! As a former sailor stationed on a carrier that shit really gets to me.
I fucking hate the new Kong and Godzilla monster movies with one exception. Kong: Skull Island was pretty good. Unfortuately the other ones can eat the peanuts out of my sssssssssssssshhhhhhhhhhhhhhhheeeeeeeeeeeeeiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiittttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt!
Friday 4-02-21: Another buy work night coming?
^Tonight I will try to emulate Dalton from Road House when I am the floor manager and the "cooler." Any drunk asshole who needs to ggggggggggggggggggeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeettttttttttttttttttttttttttttt oooooooooooooooouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuttttttttttttttttttt will be send packing by me, myself, and I. I don't want to be the cooler, but we are not hiring a bouncer or a doorman yet so that role falls to me.
Kat and I will be heading down to the bar in about 40 minutes to do a couple job interviews and then to run the place through close after 0100. If we can do the revenue numbers we did last weekend I'll be very pleased. Yesterday we exceeded what I thought we would do by a lot. Oh Jesus, hell ya! We had good numbers despite the fact that the Red Sox season opener was delayed due to rain at Fenway. The Sox are actually playing right now, game probably half-over, so I should check the score. I took a little nap after I lost to Deno at racquetball so I haven't had a chance to check in on the game.
No score in the top of the 5th, Sox vs. the Baltimore Orioles. I don't give nearly as much of a crap about baseball as I did in years past. Last year epecially I just never really got into it much at all. However, the Covid-19 pandemic fucked everything up and there was only a 60 or so game season. Sox sucked. Bad. Last place bad. What a bunch of crap! The sooner the pandemic can end the better, but it will be quite a while more. Right now about 1/3 of Maine's populace has had a first-dose vaccine. 1/5 or so is fully vaccinated. Kat gets the first of her two doses Monday, and I have yet to schedule mine because I don't even care... whether or not I care.
I know I have to get the 'rona vaccine eventually for two reasons. First, I love my wife and will do it for her. Second, I think it will be needed next year when I do taxes. I also suspect it will somehow be a requirement for travel in the future. Speaking of travel, my passport expires this month so I should figure out how to get a new one. Ten years ago Gavin and I were planning a trip to Europe, I was finishing up my first season as a tax preparer, and I was just starting to date Kelly. I lived over at Allen Rd with Doug and Tommy, and everything in my world was different. Where will I be ten years from now? At the rate things are going it might be a lengthy stay in the mental asylum. What a bunch of crap!
I don't really want to go to work tonight, but I have to. It is the right thing to do. Plus I am making an hourly rate and that precious... precious money will come in handy come mid-May when our income tax bills are due. The tax filing deadline was pushed back a month to May 17th so that made for a very slow week at the tax office. It was actually a good thing for me because I could work on the event room at the bar and not feel overwhelmed.
This month I really want to finish most or all of the event-room renovations so we can start making some precious... precious money off that space. However, the ceiling still needs a lot of work and the bathrooms need a good overhaul. The walls need paint, we need better lighting, and the floor is totally ghetto. We do have several parties interested in the 2500-square foot room already so getting it finished would be great. Whether we can pull it off or not all depends on the bar sales over the first part of the month.
Next month I'll have tax season ending and I'll have an apartment in need of some overhauls at Allen Rd. One of my two really long-term tenants is retiring and moving out, and her apartment will need fresh paint, flooring, and no doubt several other renovations. She has taken very good care of the place in the 20+ years that she has lived there, but everything is old now and needs improvements. Doug is also planning to move back next month so maybe I can pay his ass to help paint it and get it ready. I dunno yet when he will be back, but early to mid-May seems likely.
I think this spring will fly by, but hopefully by summer I can get caught up and have more precious... precious time to do other things. I definitely do NOT want to be crazy-busy again like I was last year. I want some more time in the fall to go hunting and to get the tax office ready for a big push for new clients in early 2022. Hopefully by then the bar is doing great and I can be a lot more hands-off. Maybe have a general manager hired? We shall see...
