Ben and I have found a new obsession: The Blacklist.
We tried to watch it when it first came out and I hated everything about it. James Spader was creepy without being interesting, the main girl was stone-faced and melancholy. Also, she kept touching that damn scar on her wrist, and I can tell you as someone with a pretty hardcore scar on her wrist, that shit is not okay. Scar tissue heals back weird, it’s never pleasant to touch it. The best you can hope for with a big scar like that is complete numbness, but that’s still a totally strange sensation. So, every time she petted that damn scar, I would get the ice cold willies just from watching it.
But, everybody said it got better, and it did. I recommend. I am enthralled, and Spader went from being one of my least favorite characters to being my most favorite character.
On the home front, I am owed an entire months expenses by various people and I am really trying not to go absolutely ape-shit over the fact that my savings is empty and there’s $37 in my checking. My car payment was due last week, as were several loan payments, student and otherwise, and I don’t have a red cent to pay them with, a fact that will be sure to earn me a nice pile of late fees.
If you happen to work with contractors, and you are reading this, FUCKING PAY THEM ON TIME. No one is in a position to be able to wait a month or more to get the money they earned. Least of all small-time freelancers like myself.
Tomorrow I’m waking up at the ass crack of dawn to go set up AV equipment for extra cash just so my balance doesn’t go into the negative while I try and figure out how long I’m going to have to play the game of the check’s in the mail before I go on a killing spree.
