Time to Relax

OK, I got the Legal Briefs done, and delivered yesterday.  Was back at work today, and after tomorrow I have 5 days off.  So it is going to be a time to relax and try to get Gypsy taken care of and back on the road.  Now if the weather will cooperate, and not piss down rain and freeze, or snow, I should have a nice relaxing few days to get some shit together. 
I was at Walmart last night, and for some reason bought one of those $5 "Sturgis" DVDs...I was kind of pleasantly surprised to see Bean're and then the Limpnikie Lot, and  then Jasmine Cain on it.  Usually those things tend to get used for background noise for parties once everything kind of mellows.  But I actually think I may sit down and actually watch it again sometime.  It was called "Sturgis Million Motorcycles 4"...or something like that.

Not So Brief...Legal Brief

I asked my niece to help massage the info I needed for the legal brief I had to submit by the 22nd (yes, I know its this coming Tuesday) since she worked in a lawyers office.  It turns out, that due to rules specific to Thurston County, and evne more specific to which Judge it is going to, it has to be a specific font style and size.  The margins have to be such and such, and a whole list of other shit that has to be done just so it can be accepted.  She even told me there are Thurston County specific rules for how it has to be submitted.  A normal fucking person wouldnt know ANY of this shit, so guess how many pieces of paperwork dont get filed properly...I know mine wouldnt have been.  She even said she had to get the rules on paper so she could get the brief typed up properly, with everything the court says it needs to have on the page for documentation that it was submitted properly.  It figures, that Thurston County would be the one with so much stinking red tape and BS...it is where all the lawyers gather to make new laws...the State capitol is in Olympia, in Thurston County.  They wouldn't want a normal guy to be able to get anything "Legal" done without help...it sure explains why there are so few regular folks working cases in the legal system.  It is supposed to be done tonight, and emailed to me this weekend so I can print it up and deliver it it on monday (I had to take a day off work) to the court and the Asst. Attorney General who is reresenting the State in this.
Makes me want to punch something sometimes.

Legal Brief

Heading out this morning to get the brief for my appeal worked on.  Hopefully it will get done, or at least have a good enough start that I can finish it.  I was going over the record of the hearing, and noticed the boss made bogus statements that I didnt catch at the time...like that I was hired "on call" so didn't have any set hours per week.  Or that it was "3 or 4 months" before I was given a route to drive.  I am hoping to catch more bullshit statements from him.  Even though it means I will probably have to send in a formal request for my personnel record and payroll.  I am going to see if I dont still have my pay slips for that 1st year at least.  I so want to nail this fucker.

"Just Keepin on Keepin On"

Just when I thought I was getting a handle on things...he handle broke off.  I had to buy some tires for the front of the wifes SHO so i could drive it in the snow to and from work.  So it takes most of the money I had set aside for bike parts so I could ride this winter.  I figured I could cover it next month.  Then I remembered about 3 weeks of Christmas vacation...which means no work for 3 weeks...so no money.
So then I figure I will jsut get the bike up and wont do anything major to it this winter.  no problem...until I blew out the rear tire doing about 60 or so on the way to work thursday morning.  Luckily work is only a 1/2 mile from a tire shop, so I got another pair of tires for the rear of the car.  I wont have to worry about a blow out or snow traction now...but not so sure about being able to afford anything else.
I'm just gonna have to keep trucking on, and not letting anything get in the way.

See ya on the road sometime...
