My parents are gone and now my home is left empty again, as it should be. I love seeing my parents, but man, can they be pains! I'm just kidding, they're the best. Especially since they insist on giving me money!

Which helps quite a bit, since I got ripped off by the plumber. Don't ever use USA Services Plumbing if you're in the Los Angeles area. They're a bunch of assholes! They told me on the phone that it would cost around $100 for a roto-rooter job, but when the plumber got out here, he said the job would cost $300! And because I didn't want to pay $300 for him to do the job, I was forced to pay $60 for him NOT to do the job. It was his "service" fee for the trouble of driving out to my house. Asshole.

When I called back to complain about the way-off quote, I was told that USA Services "does not give out quotes over the phone." Technically, I wasn't given a "quote," but one must assume that when a customer service rep says the job "would probably cost around $100," that it is kinda like being given a quote.

Well, if that's the game they want to play, then I will have no choice but to damn them all to hell! And perhaps to the Better Business Bureau.

That's okay though, at least my job doesn't involve cleaning up other people's doo doo.

I eventually did get a really really good plumber out here who did the job for $120 dollars. So I gave him some Macadamia Nut cookies as a tip. And I apologized for the doo doo comment.

On a happier note, I went to Knott's Berry Farm and Long Beach Aquarium with my parents. Here's a picture of a cool sea dragon that looks like seaweed!

Soooo Sleeeepy 

I have been busy. Done with the housesitting. Cat actually did throw up. In the bedroom. Luckily I found it before I left. Thanks kitty. Now my parents are in town, so I will be gone again. I am actually going to Vegas with my parents. If that doesn't spell fun, I don't know what does. Let me know if anybody wants me to play keno numbers for them. I feel like I've been neglecting all of you, but when I come back, I will catch up on the writings of my most favoritest writers, so be sure to write good!

For now, I must take my leave. We might go to Knott's Berry Farm, which I haven't been to since I was six years old. I hope I can still pan for gold.

In the House 

Hello my fine feathered friends. I'm currently in the midst of housesitting my friend's phat pad, which contrary to popular belief, is not a type of Thai food. The phat pad has a full kitchen, a dining room, a living room, four bedrooms, two and half bath, a piano, a nice backyard (mmmm hmmm!), and a kitty cat (meow!) that I have to feed three times a day (heyoohhh!). That cat is one fat bastard, I tell you. Maybe they should consider feeding it two times a day? Anyway, so I'm currently at my real home right now, getting some laundry done. I'm considering bringing my computer over to the house, but I'm always paranoid that I might drop it or lose it or something. And then there's the danger of getting 80 proof vomit all over it due to the wild party I will be having there fairly soon. But keep that on the hush hush.

Warriors Baby! 

In honor of the upcoming college football season, I've modified my blog title to reflect my support of the University of Hawaii football team!!! Wataaaaahhhhhh!!! I hope you like. I worked so hard on it. I added the big green H.

One of the few connections I still have with back home is the live broadcasts of UH football games shown here in California on Fox Sports West 2. It's one of the reasons I can put up with paying the exorbitant cable TV prices. Screw you Comcast! So let's hope they keep broadcasting the UH games this year as the University of Hawaii goes undefeated and wins the national title! Woooohoooo!
