How much for that van down by the river?

Okay, uh-huh, I hear you, yup, you're right. I shouldn't have failed the chemistry test. I really should have passed it, graduated, and been done. But no. I had to go and fuck it right up. Oh well, it's done.

The job interview went damn well, and it appears that my educational snafu won't fuck me over that badly. Also, on the very positive tip (tip? did i just say tip?), my wife Karen passed her last exam and is a proud UNC graduate. She rocks, I'm so damn proud. If I can just catch up to her we'll be in great shape.

We move into the new apartment in Red Bank on the 18th. As excited as I am, the deposit and first month's rent is putting a little strain on the ol' checkin' account. It's nothing we can't survive. I shouldn't complain.

Coming back from lunch today, Meg (mothra-in-law)(i shouldn't say that, she's wonderful), remarked about the US turning into a third world country. Quite interesting to ponder. I felt it was more of a polarized republic with the earmarks of both first and third world society. With the throngs of uneducated masses making it into the country every year, how can we expect our system to support the new burden? It simply can't. Which is why I have no faith in the social security system. Actually, I have faith that I'll be screwed out of every dollar I'm forced to contribute to "my" social security account. Bullshit.
This entry has been really up and down, ne pas?
