I think that this should happen more often. This horrible man has been infecting people, wrecking their lives so that they die with the most horrible disease on Earth, because he is a small, sad excuse for a human being.
I wish that we could do something to really hurt him. Maybe we should infect his mother with HIV and see how he likes it. But then again, that wouldn't be fair to his mom. That's what sucks about this situation: if we imprison him, we end up paying for his medical bills. I say plaster his picture everywhere and look the other way.|W|P|110935290045959344|W|P|CBC News: HIV-positive man faces 2 murder charges for unprotected sex|W|P|11/09/2005 05:49:00 AM|W|P|

Emily2/23/2005 03:57:00 PM|W|P|Mike|W|P|How do you tell your employer, who has just offered you a sizable piece of good news, that you want nothing to do with them? How do you tell someone with whom you have no other problem than their chosen career? In short, how do you tell someone willing to give you shiploads of moolah for the relatively small cost of bending your personal morals, to go suck an egg?
My boss, who is this immensely nice guy with whom I get along fantastically, told me today that I am, after long last, being made a full-time, permanent employee. What this means is that I get more money, more free time, and shit-load (pardon my French) of benefits. I get a yearly bonus (which this year is calculated as roughly 26% of one's yearly salary, before taxes). I get a flex-day a month. A get 3 weeks of vacation time a year. I get dental. I get eye benefits. They give a lot of really, REALLY good incentives to accept their offer.
But there is always the one big deterrent: I don't like it here. I can't silence that little voice in my head, the proverbial angle-on-a-shoulder, saying "You know Mike, you really won't be happy, and you can bury it under bags of cash, but it won't help none when you wake up and find that after taking a shower, you're still not feeling clean."
I have been tossing both of these view around in my noggin, and I can't come up with a clear-cut decision. I have a few days, but I still don't know what I'm going to do.
Rose and I had been talking about June 28th as being the day when I finally decide, one way or the other, what was going to happen, because something has to change. Things as they are now just wouldn't be acceptable any longer, but now with this offer, things are changing, very much for the better.
One really big motivator is the fact that I can take classes, and Shell will pay 80% of the costs. Just small things at first, like Communications in a Corporate Environment, or environmental legal issues facing Canadian Oil and Gas Companies, something that will allow me to move somewhere where I will feel BETTER about what I do and, therefore, not all inclusively, but marginally, who I am. I don't define myself by my job, but my job does help give definition to my life, if that makes any sense whatsoever.
And I just realized, if Rose and I get staggered pay checks (I get mine one week, she gets hers the next) we will be in the proverbial money. Bollinger and silk sheets here we come! Okay, not really, but there will be definite benefits to an arrangement like that.
8o) I'd be able to pay off credit cards and student loans and get a laptop and an iPod...gorram, ain't I motivated by material things? But that's what I get for being a city boy.
I *AM* a city boy after all, and I'm sick and fragging tired of feeling bad for being one. So what if I know how to dress and what wine goes well with what kind of food? So what if I take my shirts to be dry-cleaned because they starch it just right (almost paper-stiff on the cuffs and just a smidgen lighter on the collar, thank you)? And so-fragging-what if I like a tall-non fat skim milk organic latté just as much a large double-double?

Ok, I know that the third season sucked major butt. And I know that there are some serious flaws to this show, but we have to give it it's chance.
We cannot let this happen. We cannot let there not be a Star Trek in production for the first time in 35 years. Someone please help out. I've given my 20 bucks.
Now it's time for you to as well.

Some are creepy, like the guy who wanted 45 gallons of Vaseline. And the guy who drove through the car wash with his dog in the back of his pick up. But rare is the time when I get a call from truly inept criminals. Like I did yesterday.
This guy called in asking for a train car of Kerosene. You know what a train car is...one of those tankers on railway tracks. Anyway, this is something like 40,000 litres of Kerosene. Needless to say, I was a little curious as to why someone would need 40K L of flammable liquid. So I ask.
Mike: Alright sir, may I ask what it is you need this much Kerosene for?
WorstCriminalEver: Um....um...it's...yeah, about that...it's....it's for windshield wiper fluid.
This is the point at which the cognitive dissonance takes over, and I start my imagination. Like a James Bond 007 flame throwing car with kerosene jets where the windshield wiper fluid should come from. Or Extreme Bug-B-Gone wiper fluid : "Burn 'em, up if you can't wipe 'em down!"
I mean, does this person honestly think that we'd give away 40,000 L of dangerous flammable liquid to just anyone who can pay for it? Sometimes I seriously wonder about people's thought process....or lack thereof.
Oh, and for those curious people, the interview yesterday went fine. It's a 4 interview process, and they don't know if I'm getting invited back for #2. I kind of feel good about that because if he thought that I wasn't good he would have told me there, right? That's what I think. Any other opinions can be left in the comments field, thankyouverymuch.
