I realise that I have not really browsed SF (nor made any non-sales relate posts) since May or June.

So, I have a list of stuff I need to bitch about


  • Wife's car gets hit by some old woman driving across three lanes of traffic.

  • Wife's car's maintenance costs increase enough where we need to replace it.

  • My car has problems, turns out there is a good chance prior owner fscked it up.

  • Wife's replacement car gets hit by some ID10T in a parking lot.

  • My car has even more problems.

  • Auto insurance company, health insurance company and hospital are fighting over who should pay the bill for the checkups she was given after her car was hit months ago. Want us to pay the damn bill that was supposed to be paid by the other person's insurance company (clerical error with amounts given by hospital, supposedly).

  • Wife has more work problems, decide we'll take a hit in income to have her go back to school for something else.

  • Get rid of my car for a different car.

  • Wife decides we need a change; filed for divorce - still in shock.
I am getting the impression there is more on this shitlist but those are the highlights I can think of right away.

So, how have the last few months been for everyone else
?

Hang in there, skalogre! Watch "ikiru" one more time, when you need some life affirmation.

Also, post on SF more. It seems to me that I post most when I'm most stressed, as it is often guaranteed to make me laugh at LEAST once while being an excellent, low-cost, non-destructive diversion from the real world.

Xanax and cognac are good ones, too, but they don't fall into "low cost" or "non-destructive."

Aside from that, the only other things I can recommend for really stressful times (and, trust me, I've seen them, too) is taking up or getting back into a sport, working out, taking a class (why not learn Basque?), etc.

If you are feeling REALLY down, just read some of Conne's threads or posts and realize your life could ALWAYS be lamer, gayer, and without even a HINT of female companionship under the age of 75.

Geesh, [email protected], the guy's not even one post into discussing his problems and you're already trying to insinuate your dong. Not cool, man, not cool...

Wow. Bummer.
PM me for "coping with divorce" tips.

And remember, better days are ahead.
