      Okay, so I don't come to RvB much anymore. It's sad but true. I did notice that some people still do, to all of you, if you're interested in what's happened to to old Dain and his family can find out over on Facebook. The only catch is that I've set up the account under one of my pseudonyms "Jason Vogel". Just look for my Xbox Live avatar.

      This is most likey my final post here..... for awhile anyways.

      If anyone cares, you can also find more pics of the lil Bramages there as well.

      Has it really been almost a year since I've made a post? Seriously? Come on, are you sure? ..... Damn.

      Here's an idea, maybe I can let everyone know that I am, in fact, still alive. Not only am I still alive, but my family is still alive. Still alive and gaining steam. By gaining speed, of course, I mean expanding. That's right, Moonracer and I have had a second child. Now Gwen has a little brother. Randal Jerald William was born on Sept. 7th, 2008. I'm not sure if anyone is gonna care anymore, or even remember who the hell I am, but I'm gonna go ahead and throw this out there.

      That's kinda all I have to say. I'll try to come around a little more often, but with a crap job and two kids, it isn't that easy.

    • Alrighty then...

      So it would appear that I have not posted a journal in... over 5 months. Wow, didn't think it had been that long. Guess I can take a few minutes and let everyone know what's up in my life.

      Well let's see, where to begin.... oh yeah, NOTHINGS CHANGED! That's what I like about my life, it's currently on auto-pilot. I just sit back and enjoy the view.


      Alright, that's not entirely true, things do change on me from time to time. Not that I want them too. The biggest change going right now is that I have a new 'boss' at work. By that I mean that there is a new overnight manager, but I have no intentions of listening to anything he says.

      Some of you might remember that I was the assistant manager under the last boss, and may be wondering why I wasn't chosen to take over leading the troops. There are a couple of reasons for that. First, the guy that was chosen went to the store manager almost daily bitching that he wanted to advance in the company. This is something he's done since day one.

      Second, and most importantly, I didn't want to. See, the funny thing is me and this other guy (the new manager) have been treated like gods by managemnet for awhile now. We've been given so many raises that we're paid more than most of the store's staff. Some of whom have been with the company for YEARS. What this means is that the company is not exactly jumping to throw more money, or promotions, at us. In this case, they gave nothing.

      So here were my options, stay where I'm at, do what I'm doing, get paid the same.

      Or take on alot greater workload, take responsibility for everything that happens on the overnight, be responsable for the entire overnight staff, pile on the stress, strain my marriage, pull out my hair..... get paid the same.

      I went ahead and weighed those two options against one another and came up with one conclusion... Congratulations Brian. I doubt the poor sap will last 6 months, especially with the holidays coming. Sucker.



      So there it is, the only major change in my comfortable little life. There have been a few minor ones as well, like me getting more exorcise (biking) and of course new challenges with Gwen every day. A walking toddler is a dangerous toddler. So I guess I'll leave everyone with one last thing. It's a lesson I learned recently, and that is this... Nothing on the Earth reeks more that baby vomit.

      Later Y'all!

    • Some things just aren't funny.

      12 years ago

      Dainbramaged

      By this I'm referring to the death of Richard Jeni.

      For those who don't know Mr. Jeni was a stand up comic, and a damn funny one. Sadly he was found on Saturday at his apartment with a self inflicted gunshot wound to the head. He died long after at the hospital. His family released a statement today stating that it was a suicide, brought on by clinical depression coupled with psychotic paranoia. Having lived with derpreesion I know how strong those feelings can be, but I can't imagine adding the paranoia on top of it.

      I actually heard about this on Saturday, but have kinda been in shock since then. I couldn't believe it, I didn't want to believe it, but now I have to accept it's true. This is an important reminder that sometimes appearences can be decieveing. Sometime humor can hide the darkness lurking just underneath.

      That being said, I feel it's only right to honor Richard Jeni. So here are a few quotes.

      smiley9.gif The way I see life, is like we're all flying on the Hindenburg...Why fight over the window seats?

      smiley9.gif Honesty is the key to a relationship. If you can fake that, you're in.

      smiley9.gif I think that's how Chicago got started. A bunch of people in New York said, 'Gee, As much as I'm enjoying the crime and the poverty, it just isn't cold enough, let's go west.

      smiley9.gif If you have a choice of selling shoes to ladies or giving birth to a flaming porcupine... look into that second career.

      smiley9.gif It is a sad fact that 50 percent of marriages in this country end in divorce. But hey, the other half end in death. You could be one of the lucky ones!

      smiley9.gif (Referring to religious wars) You're basically killing each other to see who's got the better imaginary friend.

      smiley9.gif You're in the desert. You got nothing else to do. Name the freakin' horse.
      (Referring to the America song "A Horse With No Name")

      smiley9.gif My mother never saw the irony of calling me a son of a bitch.

      smiley9.gif At least Charles Manson has the decency to look crazy from the moment you meet him. (Referring to some women he's met)

      smiley9.gif Look over here on this chart, these are carbs, these are proteins, so stop eating, you fat bastard!

      smiley9.gif You go to a steakhouse, guess what folks...no cow tank.

      smiley9.gif There is an obesity epidemic. One out of every 3 Americans...weighs as much as the other 2.

      smiley9.gif You know what the average person is? Average.

      smiley9.gif I always look for a woman who has a tattoo. I see a woman with a tattoo, and I'm thinking, OK, here's a gal who's capable of making a decision she'll regret in the future.

      I also reccomend checking out his CD & DVD:

      Richard Jeni's Greatest Hits:

      This is probably the saddest journal I've writen, and hopefully will stay that way.

    • I haven't had alot to say lately...

      12 years ago

      Dainbramaged

      so I've decided to post a journal with absolutely no point what-so-ever.

      So I've been playing alot of video games lately. Viva Pinata, Marvel: Ultimate Alliance.... that sorta thing. Not an exciting life, but whatever.

      Moon and I are getting ready for a vacation coming up at the end of May. It's still a couple months off, but you can never be too prepared.

      Work is getting weird, new people starting, new people who were supposed to be starting, but never showed. People getting fired... eventually. Don't ask. It's just a mess.

      .... I think that's all I have to say, but I think I'll throw in a couple extras, just for the hell of it.

      First I'd like to offer some valuable life advice.

      Lastly, I've posted a few Stephen Lynch songs in the past, but I'd like to show Mr. Lynch's more sensetive side. This one is for the Walnut of Irish.

    • Here they are....

      Our (Moon, Gwen and myself) new household additions... the Wii60!

      IM000468Small.jpg

      Yeah, I know, two new videogame systems are a bit excessive. To be honest we got the Wii first, which is a great and fun system, but sometimes I just want that classic dpad on left buttons on the right standard controller setup. It's all good, they completely killed our state tax return, but there's always federal.

      Okay, this journal is for no reason other than to brag, but with Heather bragging about going to the beach *looks out the window at snow* I had to do something to cheer myself up.

      Is it wrong that gloating makes me feel better? Pehaps a better question would be 'Do I care?'. Mini20Zangief.gif

      Here I am on my night off, goofing around with my Wii. Turns out it has a web browser. Who knew? So I just had to post from it. Now if I only had a game, other than Wii Sports. That is more like exercise than a game. Not that that's a bad thing.

    • I.... GOTTA.....

      wii.jpg


      That's right, after 2 months of looking for, and just missing, the elusive system I finally have one in my grubby little mitts. And where did I find Nintendo's lil system? Target? No. Walmart? Yeah Right. Best Buy? Bad guess. No, I found it right here in Lakeville. In a little store not to many people know about. I love that place.

      Not only does this guy carry alot of new and used games, he has some import stuff you just don't see every day. It's awesome.

      So anyways, now I have my Wii. I should have been in bed hours ago, but who cares. I even have the night off work... life is pretty good.

    • Heather

      12 years ago

      Well you can punch him if you want - so long as he says ouch and he knows its from me, I'm satisfied. A poke is more "Heather-like" though. I don't run to true violence. You could prod him first, say its from me, then unleash seven kinds of personal hell on his ass?
      Just a suggestion.

    • Heather

      12 years ago

      Yup - great setup, crap joke.
      Thanks for the Blackadder reference though. I swear, if one more person tells me they loved him in Johnny English (!!1!), I'm gonna hurt someone. Speaking of which, is TCG_Chris around?
      Ha...
      Can you do me a favour? PLEASE? See - this is sort of the start of a war here. If you could find your way to go up to him at work, and poke him (chest, arm, stomach, cheek, wherever you please) and tell him its from me? PLEASE? I'll be eternally in your debt, or something.
      See, I like realism, and he can't do diddly squat back to me.

      It's almost as bad here.

      About six months ago we had our 89th anniversary sale and had generic cans of Pork and Beans on sale, 5 for $1. My manager at the time ordered sixteen pallets. We went through three of them during the sale and haven't raised the price since. We still have four full pallets in the back room, and are struggling to get rid of them.

      There's only six of us working the Grocery department, down from seven last week. One of the six requested this week, and next week off, leaving five of us to do what's usually an eight person job.

      Over here, Wendys is the best fast food chain. It only has to compete with McDonalds, Burger King and KFC - and as none of them use real chicken in their burgers, they all come a far far second for me.
      Wendys is not found outside my city - so for most its considered gourmet and a novelty.
      Me, I just eat it whenever I want. They do great mayo.
