21 day fix. day 16.

today was an awesome day. last night was a shitty night.


21 day fix. get on your feet.

to anyone who may have noticed (chirp, chirp), my last post was on tuesday of last week. that was day 9 of my second round of the 21 day fix, and today is day 15. so, it's been 6 days. where have i been and what the f*ck happened? get ready for all my bullsh*t excuses cuz i've got a whole list of them.

(quick poll: should i continue to use the * symbol in my curse words or just type them out for legit purposes? please vote.)


21 day fix. r2d9. it was a good day.

i needed to have a great day today, after not working out all weekend and eating whatever i felt like. and today was exactly the day i needed. you're gonna hear all about it.
with all the rampant gun violence, maybe it's too soon for this to be funny?


21 day fix. round 2 day 8.

you'll notice that i did not post on days 6 or 7, nor do i really want to talk about days 6 or 7. mmm'kay? mmm'kay.

you can fill in the blanks as you wish. on to today!


21 day fix. r2d5. give me back my black t-shirt.

why don't you just go ahead and let the above video play while you read the following.

"give me my money back you b*tch" is apparently the war cry of both the federal and minnesota government as they persist in demanding money from us. for anyone who cared to notice my signature last night (certified mail is never good news) we received a notice in the mail that a couple of certified letters were waiting for us at the post office. a couple of them! how lovely!

i would like to say that i have the grace and good nature to handle this sort of thing with patience and faith that "all will work out", but i do not. i was spiraling in a dark panic within three seconds, and that swirling lasted from 5:30pm when i saw the note in the mail until 8:05am this morning when the badger picked up the letters.

 my piece of advice for anyone who receives notice of a cerified letter? do NOT google "what gets sent via certified mail." you will find out the following items are often sent this way:

  • a notice that you are being sued
  • a notice that you are part of a lawsuit
  • a notice to vacate your property; can come from the bank, your neighbor (apparently?), your city, your state, the government, etc.
  • requirement to attend jury duty (that wouldn't have been so bad)
  • anything from the IRS
  • a notice that there is intention to garnish your wages from a collector
  • ... and other very bad, bad things
and sometimes, only occasionally, a certified letter can be good news, like, a large sum of money from an inheritance. given that no one in my family has that much money and/or has died recently that i'm aware of, i knew it was likely one of the above mentioned bullet points.

so we owe both the IRS and the great state of minnesota some money from our 2013 taxes. this we have known since april, and have been paying off since april. no big deal. well the two certified letters were from this the great state of minnesota to the tune of "we intend to file a claim with the federal goverment to take any refunds owed to you and apply it towards your minnesota tax bill..." blah blah blah. yeah? good f*cking luck minnesota because we owe them too.

basically, it's nothing to panic about and some standard letter that they send everyone who owes them money?

i gotta tell ya. canada keeps looking better and better. oh, and hey! my company has some offices up there! so...

on to today.


21 day fix. r2d4. whatever.

"whatever" is the only thing i have to say about this day. but rest assured, there's a lengthy blog post that follows, so i obviously have way more to say about this day.


21 day fix. r2d3. bagel thy name is Shame.

let's start today's recap by getting this out there in the hopes that the more i talk about it, the better i'll feel:

last week the badger said "who is this guy, and why do you like him so much?"
i don't really, it's just that he's everywhere. and i find that endlessly hilarious.

there may come a day when i can eat bagels, and today was not supposed to be that day. but i overslept, i was hungry, and i walked past a brand new bagel shop in the skyway with a sign that read "pumpkin bagels! pumpkin cream cheese!". the wafting smell of warm, doughy pumpkin and spice was just too much for me. so. you know...
