Mr. Bigglesworth -- er, I mean, Dog Roland

The bonfire Saturday night was a lot of fun – it was nice to chill with a group of my friends that I seldom get to see, and not have to deal with any drama for an evening. E- even brought Mr. Dog Roland, so it was cute to see him running around the yard on his stubby little legs.

Oh, no – I think I’m being won over to wiener dogs! *facepalm*
Must remember – little over-bred mutant aberrations! Not the cutest thing in the canine kingdom!


Even more odd is the fact that E- just carries him around everywhere she goes, petting him, like he’s Mr. Bigglesworth. For Primus’s sake – when did she become a Bond villain?

Ah, well. Work day is over. Heading out of here.

Well, I finally got the form I need to petition the court to end my child support. My mom pointed out today that I’ve given an extra $2000 from my paycheck since I found out in May that I’m not A1’s biological father, and I’m still paying J@{’s cell phone to boot. I actually got a copy of the form during my vacation last month, but then I got really sick, and it’s one of the things I didn’t get to. Now, I guess, I’ve just been procrastinating. I’m not sure I have all the information I need, but that’s just an excuse because I haven’t actually looked yet, and the real problem is that I just hate paperwork. However, that $2000 is a pretty good reminder that I need to take care of this immediately, so maybe I’ll fill out what I can at work during my break, and then finish it when I get home and get it mailed.
At least the process itself shouldn't be too painful. Apparently, once I petition to have the child support changed, they'll call J@{ and I into a hearing, like they did with the initial child support establishment hearing. J@{ and I are in agreement that the child support responsibility should be transferred over to N@7, so as long as we bring the paternity results, with luck there won't be a problem with that. Of course, that means N@7 might have to get a real job, but that'll be their problem.

In an important speech…, George Bush attempted to portray how important his faith is in his life. He of course was trying to apply what he's learned from his father….
In his typically condescending, smug manner, he said his favorite Bible verse is John 16:3. Of course, the speech writer meant 3:16, but wasn't even familiar enough with this often-quoted & of course often taken-for-granted Scripture to catch the error. Neither was Bush, and how incredibly appropriate it is.
"And they will do this because they have not known the Father or me."
— John 16:3
