2012 brings new things to discover as well as uncertainty about the future. It also brings more of that 2012 doomsday BS that has been running rampant the past few years, despite common sense and scientists actually proving that the predicted Mayan doomsday will not happen! But that still doesn't stop idiots like Discovery Channel, History Channel, Patrick Geryl and other morons from continuing to shove their doomsday shows and books down our throats!

Since the world will end in 356 days from now (we are in a leap year, so we have the 29th of February), I've decided to have my own fun with this "phenomenon". Don't worry, I'm not going to talk about how the earth will suddenly reverse its magnetic fields or anything like that. I lack the intelligence to make sense of that stuff.

The reason for this title if I'm not going to talk about 2012? A certain 80's song that critics think is probably the worst song in history.

On the job hunt!

Posted August 25th, 2009 at 09:04 PM by Mario The World Champion (The Final Countdown!)

I want to end 2009 on a good note. After being laid off from my job earlier in the year, my original plan was to take some time off and relax while collecting my unemployment benefits and look for a new job after Anime Boston 2009.

And then my Dad got leukemia. So, that plan was scrapped as I had to look after him after he came back home, to make sure he's okay until he can get back to normal. Now that he's okay and the leukemia's no where in sight, I'm now resuming my plan to...

Wii are having seconds thoughts.

Tags wii, work

A few weeks ago, I made a blog entry about how I was planning on getting a Nintendo Wii this month.

Well, I'm having second thoughts. Now is not the time for me to go get one. I'm in the process of finding a new job and I might need that Wii money in case something happens before I do find a new job.

I still plan on getting that Wii sometime. I feel like it's better if I get it a month or two after starting a new job. Once I get settled into being a part of the...

My Unemployment is FINALLY coming in!!

Posted March 8th, 2009 at 12:54 AM by Mario The World Champion (The Final Countdown!)

Well, something's going right for me. At the start of the month, my unemployment benefits from the state have finally started to come in!! I thought I was going to have to wait a few more weeks because of what I talked about a couple blogs ago.

However, I was wrong. Right now, I'll be getting around $250 a week for 26 weeks. If I don't find a job during that time, which I doubt I will, my benefits will last me until July or so.

With my unemployment finally coming...

It seems like the morons at Berry Plastics, the company that laid me and about 130 other people off, are in trouble with the state. I read in my local paper today that those *******s haven't sent in our wage information to the state so our unemployment claims can be finally processed. Some of them got noticed from the unemployment bureau saying their claims are being delayed due to they don't have their wage information, how much they made in 2008. It's the law that the company that lays off...

Killing Time

Posted February 13th, 2009 at 03:01 PM by Mario The World Champion (The Final Countdown!)

I know people have been saying I should buck up and be positive about my whole unemployment deal and I should not worry about it, but how can I when all they talk about in the news is the continuing economic slide. Even as the U.S. Senate is debating over the revised Stimulus package, it'll be a long time before we see ANY improvements. So, I may be unemployed for a long time.

With that said, I got a lot of time on my hands. So, I'm going to unleash my creative beast that has been...
