I have never done anything like this and kinda feel horrible now because well…I just do, but I found out this morning that I am going to have to get a shockingly expensive brace for my best friend in the whole world’s front leg (he only has 3 legs). So not only are there no record purchases in my near future (and a big liquidation) but still i am honestly not sure how I am gonna make it though the next few weeks. If any of you have a little change, it would help me out more than you could ever know. Thanks for reading and please send good thought to Grifter.

5-Year-Old With Autism Paints Stunning Masterpieces 

Autism is a poorly-understood neurological disorder that can impair an individual’s ability to engage in various social interactions. But little 5-year-old Iris Grace in the UK is an excellent example of the unexpected gifts that autism can also grant – her exceptional focus and attention to detail have helped her create incredibly beautiful paintings that many of her fans (and buyers) have likened to Monet’s works.

Little Iris is slowly learning to speak, whereas most children have already begun to speak at least a few words by age 2. Along with speech therapy, her parents gradually introduced her to painting, which is when they discovered her amazing talent.

“We have been encouraging Iris to paint to help with speech therapy, joint attention and turn taking,” her mother, Arabella Carter-Johnson, explains on her website. “Then we realised that she is actually really talented and has an incredible concentration span of around 2 hours each time she paints. Her autism has created a style of painting which I have never seen in a child of her age, she has an understanding of colours and how they interact with each other.”

Much better version of the same subject matter I posted earlier.

I want some of this young lady’s work.

Figures

The trackpad I bought Shane for his birthday does not like my index finger for selecting what I want.

It approves of my middle finger however.

Today I had to make the decision to put my ferret Abigail to sleep.
I noticed last week she seemed a little lethargic, her hair seemed thinner……I thought her Desolorin implant was wearing off and she might need another. Shane and I had discussed the feasibility of getting her another one at her age (they cost $200).
I wish we could have gone to the regular vet, she is a specialist in ferrets.
But Abby wasn’t going to make it until tomorrow.
Shane & I have lost 2 pets in the last month.

Today is my last day

As the office drone.

And I couldn’t be happier.

Officially I had told the boss I didn’t even want to drive anymore, figuring it would be too awkward and/or he wouldn’t want me anymore after I’m leaving him to deal with his own mess.

Needless to say he’s asked me to take some time to reconsider that aspect. Dependable drivers are hard to come by (not bragging) and I was going to miss the money/tips.

However, being in the service industry is a shithole job and I feel bad for anyone who has to do it. I’ve bar-tended, served food and was a phone CSR…….and people are totally turning into huge entitled douchebags.

Driving party buses does mean I’m still interacting with the (drunk) public…….but it’s just not the same thing.

I can totally get work done around this house now.

Dreams man

I have had a reoccurring yet differently themed dream recently.

I keep finding areas of my house I didn’t know existed…….primarily old sun rooms.

Once it was down an old dark hallway. This last time it was behind an old funky wall that I was peeling the layers of wallpaper off of.

Obviously I need a sun room.

I’m quitting one of my jobs

I gave my boss notice a week ago. 

I’m not here to badmouth him, however he is the main reason I can no longer do this job. I only work 20 hours a week as that is all they can currently afford (in the ‘office’ at my house).

They were audited by the DOT last year and it was a fucking fiasco. I left the office for almost 2 months (because no money was coming in) and he practically ignored emails/phone calls. No transparency to the clients, serious procrastination…..it made it to the gott damned NEWS that we were ‘screwing over’ customers.

SO embarrassing.

It took 3 months to get their license back…..but it’s still a clusterfuck. No lessons were learned. I’m still getting screamed at by Bridezillas because the company cannot get it’s shit together.

Telling my boss I couldn’t do it anymore was like breaking up with a guy, or asking for a divorce. I’ve been with them for 4.5 years, have loved my job and I really care about him and his little family. However things are not getting better. I put in my 20 hours and then some. I’m so tired of being yelled at by unhappy people, it’s seriously stressing me out.

I was waffling about my decision up until about 10 minutes ago.

All it took was one crazy bitch getting angry at me because the bus she inquired about over 2 weeks ago is now gone.

Yes ma’am, you said you wanted to get that bus on (insert date here) for (incorrect price)? Let me just make sure you know it’s really ($300 more) and if you’re still interested please let me know when the best time to call you is?

(no response)

She sent me an email today asking me to call her today.

But this is MY fault it’s gone now?

Yeah…….it’s a good thing I’m leaving.

Now I’m paranoid about money.

This is what my last 2 weeks have felt like as I attempt to get the house ready for Shane to move in.

I haven’t seen what everyone has been up to here all week.

I grew up watching this guy and I’ve always loved his work.

One of my favorite bits.
