I though "abo's" were a problem in Australia?

I have a friend that lives in Sydney and would always complain about them.

Right now I have half a box of cereal, a half kicked gallon of milk, a can of soup, and some frozen chicken patties in my fridge. I have not a single care to go shopping. Way too tired. This isn't mentioning, I should be looking for a new job. Don't have the desire to do that either.
This is how I am as well. Get home and don't want to do anything. I have 4 more production Saturday's coming up, I like that I get time and a half for OT, but I don't have time to do anything.

working 6 days a week was the worst. I was useless on my sundays off. So glad I'm about to be back to working a teacher schedule even with summer school or whatever I'll do this year, its just such a good consistent schedule.

I have an insane amount of stuff to do that's really important, but you'd never know by how much attention I pay.

And I somehow got a virus on my Mac. I've had it for 4 years, and this is my first problem ever. No idea where I got it from.

I wish it was from porn. I think it was the video I watched of people scaring cats. Those videos get me every single time.

Hey, everyone. A few months ago I posted about my acceptance into a program located in Moscow/Saint Petersburg, and I recently just received my International Student Identity Card (ISIC). However, I may have a problem.

My name is Douglas, yet the identity card reads "Dooglas". Should I ignore this and assume it's the Russian name for Douglas (which I read online it loosely may be) or bring this up to my professor? I don't want to look like an idiot.
My Russian visa, passport, regular university ID, and other information all use Douglas.

This probably sounds petty, but I've been told numerous times how difficult it can be in Russia when there's even a minuscule suspicion of inaccuracy.

My name is not Kenn.

I am pretty sure the international student identity card is meaningless and nobody will look at it. I had one when I went to Spain (or maybe both Spain and Costa Rica) and I never used it. If I recall right it was supposed to be used in practice primarily as a thing to get you discounts, but I never used it. And as a piece of identity, your passport/visa are the only things that you need.

3 day weekend for me now. No work today due to a dye in a stamping press being broke. No work tomorrow bc it's worse than they thought and have to fly it in from Japan. Paycheck in 2 weeks isn't going to look that good lol.

Thanks, everyone! I'm glad it's not nearly important as I thought it would be apparently.

So, things went decent on the job interview. As in...could go either way.

More importantly, things at my current job spiraled out of control while I was gone. Sad times. Monday is going to suck.

The American government.

I'd probably be shot if I argued otherwise.

It's really a lose-lose situation.

Shot by the Danish goverment or the American one?

Quite a dangerous life you live Bigs.

Thank God that it's allowed - no, my God given right by the Constitution, to have more fire power in my apartment than the entire army of The Seychelles.


Come get me, Denmark.

I met an old Danish couple in the airport yesterday while waiting for a delayed flight. The guy was pretty cool. But his old lady kept talking to me like I was mentally challenged and incredibly simple. She started drawing a map to show me where Denmark is. You know, since it is impossible for an American to have any sense of geography. She was genuinely shocked that I knew Copenhagen is the capital, haha.
