So Let's Play Catchup

The following post was from my original blog on, it is archived here for posterity purposes

Alright, so because of the server switch I didn't post because it was already going to be a hassle switching over. And if I wrote I would have to continue exporting to be ready for the server switch. So now we're playing catchup.

Thursday night Brandi came over, we watched Man in the Iron Mask and as she was leaving, it was about 11:30 at night, she opened her car door and it wouldn't open all the way. That's when we noticed the damage to her car. She had gotten hit while parked in the street in front of my house. After doing some gum shoe work we discovered the culprit to be my neighbors across the street. They hadn't left a note or called us or even come and knock on the door. So we called the police to get a report, they tell us if we don't know who did it they won't do shit to help us.

So after some faltering we go across the street, knock on the door and ring the doorbell. And I'll be damned if they didn't turn the ligths off on us. So we go back across the street and called the police again and this time we told them we were sure who did it but they hadn't confessed. After about 30 minutes the Florida Highway Patrol arrived and too make a long, rather boring story short, my neighbor was most upset by the fact we called the police. "Why didn't you call us?" So we explained we knocked on the door and rang the doorbell and no one answered. But he insisted why hadn't we called. Well why should we call if we knock on the door?

The cop was already perturbed at my neighbors. I mean it's really rude to hit a car and not leave a note or a call. And they gave the cop a run around, delaying coming outside. They even called my house while we were outside with the cop and talked to my dad saying "why did you call the cops!?"

So like I said, long story short, they got three citations. First was improper backing, that is - hitting the car. $80 and 4 points on the license. Next was the criminal citation for leaving the scene of an accident and not leaving a note or anything. Mandatory appearance before a judge. And finally a citation for not reporting the incident, in the state of Florida you have to report incidents to the authorities.

So justice was served, now she can get her car fixed and everything.

That was Thursday. Friday I went back to work, Saturday was my last day at Poseidon. I spent all day Friday outside to enjoy the day with guests. They were in a good mood, no big events or anything. Saturday, since it was my last day, I was granted my wish of staying inside in the final room all day. This afforded me the ability to see most people who came through and to relax most of it.

It was sad to leave work knowing I wouldn't be returning to work there again.

Also I am getting shafted with this transfer to being Shrek. I thought I began training today. But instead it turns out I'm training NEXT week, so I lose an entire week of work. So I'll need to find ways to make up for it.

And the site is completely transferred over. Any incoming links to entries will not work, I've redone the organization and everything. Sorry, you'll have to redo them.
