Cosas de interés sobre la hermosísima ciudad de Monterrey, Nuevo León, México!

2023.06.01 18:33 InTheSkyCity 5/31/23 (After Tokyo, Los Angeles.)

“My energy kinetic, the fitted hat by Ebbets. Yessir. DJ Drama. Yeah.”
“I like sugar, I like sweets, I don't like the spicy eats. I need bridges in my beats and Campana Brothers seats. The heaven part for me is knowin' I can. Wake up when I'm finished with my sleep, ain't no kids to feed. No stress I bleed, I don't got a boss. I go wherever and don't care 'bout the cost. Gas money was stark for me, uh. Now I got so many cars I could start up. We nappin' in parks, we in the sun gettin' darked up. Chillin' with my suit on. Travel trunk is either Moynat leather or it's Vuitton. Sippin' mint tea like we know the tree the leaf fell from. We come from them tiki punch drinks. Had animosity for dinner, El Pollo Loco. That was in the past, now I parmesan my bolo'. Half a million driftin' and the tire readin' "Toyo". Prefer the alligator logo on my cotton polo. Livin' it up, my nggas is up. Y'all nggas is salty peanuts, we ain't givin' a fuck. 'Cause I'm blessed as hell and I ain't next to jail. Ain't got no psyche hiccups, plus I dress this well. My heaven 24/7, that's heaven.”
“That's heaven to me, yeah. What's heaven to you? Yeah. That's heaven to me, yeah. What's heaven to you, to y'all? Because that's heaven to me, aw-aw. You gotta love it.”
I had trouble sleeping that morning. I woke up at 3 AM. I woke up sweating, I instantly went up to get some water to drink. I then took ten minutes to open the pain of an ass window that I have in my bedroom.
I assumed that it must’ve been my meds that kept me awake. On the second day I started taking them, I was up until 3 AM. I slept for another hour at some point. I gave up on trying to sleep once it was 6 AM. I took a shower. Not because I wanted to wake myself up, but to get myself ready for work.
I got to work around 10 AM, luckily didn’t deal with the stranger from the day before. I was going to work a lunch buffet at my new job. I’ve done those before, but it’s much more people than Im usually used to. I’ve met some more servers, and I kept ‘training.’ It’s pretty much what I’m used to, but I have a feeling that things are a bit more disorganized.
With my uncle and brother, we pretty much have a strict way on doing things. But nearly everyone here kinda does their own way of doing things. It still gets the job done, but it would be nice if there was a way of doing things.
I was shocked by how the servers were making it more difficult to work by bringing all the plates to the back with their own hands instead of using trays to carry everything.
Doing the buffet wasn’t difficult, well, the only really difficult part being the guests who can be picky. Or the guests who are being smartasses by ignoring me whenever I asked if they’re finished with their plate. It went pretty well though, my supervisor (the family friend who got me the job) seems to be happy with my work so far. He mentioned how I work similar to him, which was a big compliment, I’ve heard from many about how my father was one of the best employees. He also says I resemble my father a lot, but I don’t really see it. People usually say my brother is the one who looks like him. I’m the one that’s the most like my father the good and the bad. I’m pretty sure my mom has even noticed.
I ended up clocking out at around 2 PM. I didn’t actually get home until 4 PM since my manager wanted to speak to me about getting me a schedule. I get to pick any of the shifts I want to work, which is very nice. I soon went on my way home.
I then got an email. “Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival returns to Dodger Stadium November 11-12, 2023.”
Shit. I might actually have a chance to go. I return from Japan on November 8. The original plan was to head home through taking a flight from LA to here since it would save more money. But fuck… I might change my plans.
November 8 is just literal days away from Camp Flog Gnaw. I started thinking of a plan until I noticed my best friend had the same thought once he started messaging me about the news. I was probably making a rushed decision that could cause some consequences. But I was listening to No More Parties In LA, so could you blame me.
Once I started thinking about the lineup that could possibly show up, and the surprise guests that could possibly show up. Tyler is definitely going to be there. Kendrick Lamar and Baby Keem are pretty much confirmed. There’s a good chance Steve Lacy might be there. I was pretty much sold on the idea once I let my imagination running, especially since I originally planned on going to both Kendrick and Steve’s tours last year, but both were sold out.
Shit, it was an easy decision. I’ll be chilling in LA for a bit until the festival. Fuck, I guess I’m going to be having to save NMPILA for my SOTD when I actually arrive to LA in November. I’m hyped.
I should be good with my family about it. I never exactly told him how much time I’d be gone. So this could work in my favor.
I then got home and instantly ordered some shit for me to eat because I was starving and didn’t feel like making myself something to eat. I then started doing my laundry before heading to the shower since I needed it.
I was actually going to game a bit with my new friend until my father and his girlfriend came in. I was about to bite into my food as well. Nearly screamed into my pillow for a moment once his girlfriend pretty much demanded that we go to Costco. Pretty sure I might’ve upsetted my friend once I told her that I won’t be able to play mortal kombat, so that’s nice.
So we went to Costco. I bought some sandals that didn’t even end up fitting me. I would return them, but I lost my fucking receipt at some point before I got home. I bought this very nice button up. I also bought some groceries as well, the usual stuff my family eats.
I didn’t really do much after that besides actually getting some time to rest. I finally got a chance to eat. I then finished my laundry. I didn’t really do much besides watching some more Boardwalk Empire, I’m reaching the end of season 3. I then finished up my journal, which ended up being one of my longer ones in months. It was a nice surprise. Today was a decent day.

2023.06.01 06:41 darksky801 Jack in the Box location?

Has anyone heard any updated info on just where exactly the Jack in the Box is supposed to be going in? I thought I'd heard it was going to be one of the new buildings being built in the parking lot at the corner of Antelope & Main, but looks like that's an El Pollo Loco & an oil change place. Google Maps seems to think it's (oddly) inside a building over at Davis Hospital. Saw someone online say they think it'll actually be in Syracuse, not Layton.
Seems like either this is a lot more tentative or way further off than previously suggested.

2023.05.25 01:47 Rocket_Mouth Correct drivers for Windows/Tesla P4 vGPU

Hi all, was able to setup vGPU with a Tesla P4. I can't seem to find the right drivers for windows though?
I've tried the Tesla, Quadro and even Geforce 1070, but all say they can't find a compatible device?
Anyone else successfully find the right drivers?

EDIT: I've tried older drivers but still no go. Device manager is showing multiple "Basic Display Adapter" so I believe windows does see it, but can't seem to get any nvidia drivers to load.
SOLUTION: Doing more digging, it looks like the vGPU spoofing was required. Per Craft Computing, I couldn't get it to work as it wouldn't boot. Removing it gave me the ability to boot but would show up as "Basic Display Adapter"
Following PolloLoco's guide on spoofing and referring to the following link: https://pci-ids.ucw.cz/read/PC/10de/
I spoofed the P4 as a P4000 and the quadro graphics worked!

2023.05.23 02:00 HyenaProfessional766 How soon is too soon to leave a new job?

I recently started a job at Pollo Loco as it was the only one so far to accept me quickly. I just needed the money and it was kind of like whiplash with how fast I started working. (Yesterday, May 21, was my first day.) However, the job is a little inconvenient long term bc of its location from my home. If I get a better opportunity within the next few days (location-wise), would I be an asshole to leave so soon? What should I do if that happens?

2023.05.22 12:13 Shackscraft Need help finding a job for my brother

My brother, 24 years old, just got here to SM a few weeks ago and he is struggling to find a minimum wage job, mostly because he knows little English (he speaks Spanish) and also because he has no car, so basically he has the job cut out for him (pun intended). He already tried interviews at Walmart and other places that could hire him (like El Pollo Loco and the 99 cents store); he lives close by those stores within walking distance, but still no luck. He has also been trying to look for some "field work" type of job on Facebook (since most of those jobs are there), but they all require you to have a vehicle or start very early in the morning when there's no public transit available (a fuckcars moment right there).
So yeah, I'm just posting this here to ask if anybody has any advice for him or knows someone who is hiring a person that is willing to work in the fields just to earn some money.

2023.05.20 02:34 lucasdy What should replace the Boston Market in Carmel Mountain Ranch?

Thing has been vacant for awhile now. I checked Yelp and the last review was 3 years ago.
So what should move in there?? I mean it already has a drive through set up. And it would suck if they got rid of it like they did with the Carl’s Jr in Penasquitos (now a dentist).
I have ideas but given the surrounding competition I’m not sure.
Would love to see a Del Taco move in. But don’t think they have a presence in SD anymore. And Taco Hell (Taco Bell) is in the same area. As is Chipotle, Sombreros. And Jalapeños.
Burger King and Carls Jr are a no since they closed up shop in PQ. Plus ya got In and Out and McDs.
KFC or Popeyes? There’s Chick Fila. And El Pollo Loco across the street. As is Wings n Things.
Dunkin? There’s Krispy Creams and Seasme Donuts (best donuts ever) down the street.
Starbucks? 🤮
Maybe a Money Pit (San Marcos)? Tommy Burgers? Long John’s? Arby’s?

2023.05.16 04:01 sunsabs0309 I am 28 years old, make $137,000 joint income, live in Southern California , work as a Customer Service and Operations Manager, and this week we went to Universal Studios!

Section One: Assets and Debt
Retirement Balance: ~$3,000 in 401k, ~$2,000 in TSP, ~$430 in my IRA, ~$440 in my husband’s, L, IRA. The 401k and TSP are L’s and I don’t have the login for them so I’m not entirely sure how the last year of the market dropping has affected them. Our IRAs haven’t seen much of a hit thankfully but there’s also not a ton in them
Equity if you're a homeowner - N/A
Savings account balance - $22,429.93
Checking account balance - $59.99
Joint checking - $1157.66
Discover - $386.56
Chase - $1173.97
Citi - $14
Student loan debt (for what degree) - $19,951 for a BA in Studio Art. I originally graduated with just over $24k in student loan debt and I had paid it down to about $16k during the interest pause but with the announcement of the student loan forgiveness, I had requested a chunk of that money back and we used it to pay down some business debt.
Car loan - $26,114.97 (L’s car, mine was paid off in 2018)
Note for the credit card debt: With the exception of about $200, the rest is already covered by sinking funds. I typically do pay offs every week depending on the amount and the card it’s on. For example, on our Chase card, that closes on the 1st so for any large payments, I wait til closer to the end of the month just to leave that amount sitting in our savings account and accrue a little more interest.
Section Two: Income
Income Progression:
2012 - got my first job as a receptionist at a chiropractor’s office. I started at $8 an hour and by the time I left, I was at $12 (I only got raises as California started mandating raising the minimum wage to $15)
2017-2019 - rideshare driver and photographer. I averaged about $600 a week through rideshare driving. My income as a photographer varied wildly from $0 a month to $200 a month to $2000 a month. I stopped doing photography at the beginning of 2019 as we were preparing for my husband’s separation from the military
2019-now - I was super lucky to land a job within two weeks of moving back. I started as a customer service rep at $15 an hour. 3 months in got my first raise to $16, at my year mark got a raise to $17. About 9 months later I asked for a raise to $18 as by that point, I had a lot on I had taken on along with essentially being co-customer service manager. January of 2022 I got a raise to $19 as I took on customer service manager and part time project manager. In August 2022 after some tumultuous position changing, I got a raise to $22.
Main Job Monthly Take Home:
My income - $3160 give or take some depending on overtime and if it’s a 5 paycheck month. I do have health insurance through my work for myself but they don’t charge us anything for it (yet.) L gets insurance through the VA so there’s no cost there for us.
L’s income - $4800
Side Gig Monthly Take Home
$0, still have my Etsy shop where I sell my art and hasn’t turned over a profit yet.
Any Other Monthly Income Here
L’s VA disability - $812
I do also pull from various sinking funds each month but the amount varies
Section Three: Expenses
Rent - ~$500 (L pays) we are very fortunate that my in-laws have a little mother-in-law suite that was vacant and allowed us to move into it to help us save for a house. All they asked for us was to pay the electricity bill which comes out to about this amount since we moved in
Retirement contribution - current $0 (haven’t been able to get this back into our rotation due to several savings goals for this year but working on it)
Savings contribution - $100/week + !$3000 from L’s income
Investment contribution - $40/month to my nieces’ UTMA accounts ($20 each)
Student loans - currently $0 due to the forbearance. My typical monthly payment is $139.13. I round it up to $140 and have continued to pay that through most of the forbearance.
Car payment - $607.18, rounded up to $610 (L pays)
Donations - probably $10-20 a month, usually to a GoFundMe or someone in need on social media
Electric/WateTrash - see Rent
Wifi/Cable - don’t have to pay at the moment, we use my in-laws’ internet
Cellphone - $101
Spotify Duo - $12.99
Hulu - $5.99
Car insurance - $204 (I pay $104, L pays $100)
HP Instant Ink - $5
Massage Envy - $75
Netflix - $19
Google Play - $2 (for storage)
Banfield Wellness Plan - $57 (only paying for one dog as she needed a dental cleaning last year and we didn’t have enough saved for that)
Gabb - $70 (phone plan for my nieces, we offered to pay for this for them to have a way to contact family due to some extenuating circumstances)
Groceries - $360/month (we do do HelloFresh now, so about $280-300 of this goes towards that)
Pet expenses - $360/month
Gas - $360/month
My spending money - $200/month
L’s spending money - ~$500/month
Fun - $200/month
Eating out - $200/month
For all of our variable expenses, anything that isn’t spent gets rolled over to the next month.
Day 1 - Monday
4am - My alarm goes off and it is taking everything in me to get out of bed. I tell L we should call out and he says we gotta get going. Someone has to be responsible I guess.
5:15am - I drop L off at work and then head to get breakfast. Five minutes into our drive, I realized I forgot to eat and forgot to grab something to eat so I go to a nearby bagel place I discovered recently to get breakfast. I order an egg sandwich and a hot chocolate and redeem a free coffee for my coworker. ($11.34) When I get there, they tell me their hot chocolate machine is broken so I get an orange juice and they offer me a pastry for the inconvenience. I’ve been eyeballing their chocolate chip cookies the last couple of times I’ve come in so I pick that.
6am - On my way back, my coworker texts me she forgot her keys. It’s no one’s day today. I finally get to work and get started. I’ve been doing more work in production the past few months so I go to our metal department to start laying out prints to heat transfer.
11am - I grab my lunch (leftovers from Chili’s last night) and head to my friend’s office to discuss both work and gossip. She’s my fellow operations manager so we go over where the floor is out and figure out our plan for tomorrow. We have to get orders from May 2 and back out and delivered in time for Mother’s Day and it’s looking like we’re gonna have to expedite some shipments.
3pm - I’m finally off work and I go off to pick up L. We were incredibly fortunate that when he landed his new job back in December that he would be working across the street from me. We carpool together most days abd it’s been both helpful with gas and nice to have someone to share the long commute with.
4:30pm - We get home and get ready to go on a walk. We grab the pups and head off. We moved in with my in-laws back in March and they live in a very safe, not highly trafficked neighborhood so we can take walks with our dogs off leash. We try to walk 3-4 days out of the week.
5:30pm - We get back and I check the dogs for foxtails (PSA from my vet sister: if you’re in an area with foxtails, please check your pets after walks or hikes otherwise the foxtails can sink into their skin and cause more damage.) They’re mostly clear, one just has a little splinter that we easily remove. L proceeds to make one of our HelloFresh meals for the week, a penne ricotta bake. It’s a 7/10, won’t be ordering again.
6:30pm - I go do some work in our office. I’ve been slowly prepping things to open a budgeting Etsy in between making merch for a convention I’m vending at in July.
7pm - I call it a day and go hang out with L before we go to bed at 8.
Daily Total - $11.34
Day 2 - Tuesday
4am - My alarm goes off for the second time. I tried to get up earlier but that period fatigue won out and I slept in for a few more minutes.
5:30am - I get to work after picking up my friend and we start our day. I found out some interesting info this morning that is shifting my plans to leave the company. I eat a Poptart as I contemplate these plans and do some work in customer service. One of our reps had quit back in March (we were planning on letting her go anyways) so myself and my friend, fellow co-manager, have been helping our remaining rep with the load.
10:30am - Some coworkers and I decide to get Chick-Fil-A for lunch and I head out to pick it up. ($11.89 for my portion)
2pm - I get off work on time today and head towards my older sister’s, K, place. My nieces had asked my little sister, Z, if we could take them shopping for Mother’s Day and that’s today’s mission. On the way there I stop to give my car a badly needed vacuum. To my pleasant surprise, the car wash place I stopped at offers vacuums for free.
3pm - Z and I pick up my nieces from school and stop to get them Happy Meals at McDonalds. Z and I share a 10 piece nugget meal. ($19.67)
4pm - We wander the aisles of TJ Maxx as the girls contemplate their options. I gave them $20 each to spend and Z chipped in another $10 so they were working with a budget of $30 each. After much consideration, they each get her 3 things and one bigger present together. I pay for a portion ($23.78) and I get some gifts myself. ($23.79) We make a stop at Target to get bags and while we’re there I get some Airbnb gift cards. They were having a special on a few gift cards if you spend $75 you get a $10 Target gift card so I got some for our trip to Japan next year. ($98.24)
5pm - We help the girls wrap the presents and then I head off to make the journey back home. On the way home I pick up Buffalo Wild Wings for dinner (I ate like trash today lol, $34.12) There was a whole mess to sort through with our order so it takes me a little longer than anticipated to get home.
7:30pm - I finally get home and we eat dinner while watching some Pitch Perfect before going to bed.
Daily total - $211.49
Day 3 - Wednesday
4am - Up for another day of work and I multi-task most of the getting ready time to feed myself breakfast, make our lunches, and feed the dogs. We’re out the door a little past our usual time but still get to work on time.
7:30am - I pop into the front office to check on things and see if I have any editing to do. I have a Poptart left from yesterday so I snack on that.
11am - L texted me earlier that he had eaten the sandwich I packed him earlier and asked if I wanted to meet up for lunch. We go to a ramen place nearby that I love and L is kind enough to pay. He drops me off and I head back into work.
3pm - There is some bullshit at work that has 3 of us like we’re going to quit and are serious about it. (It’s a whole long history of things that has us here.) My friend makes plans with one of our managers for us to meet with him to discuss some of our hangups. L comes to pick me up and on the way home I peruse Indeed for other jobs.
5pm - We stop at the bank and then Pollo Loco to get me dinner since L has leftovers from Buffalo Wild Wings and our lunch to choose from. ($10.21)
6pm - After I eat my dinner, I go to the office to do some crafting and finish editing some photos for my sister.
8pm - Lights are off and we are in bed like the grandparents we are.
Daily Total - $10.21
Day 4 - Thursday
4am - My alarm goes off and wakes me up from a bad dream. I tuck myself into L for a second before I get up to get ready. After letting out the dogs and doing my bathroom routine, I do a small load of dishes, pack L’s lunch, and make myself waffles. White those cool, I prepare the dogs’ breakfast and bring them in.
5:30am - I get to work and get to workin.
12pm - After dealing with some personnel issues and having a manager meeting before that, it has been a Day so I continue the last two weeks of eating like shit and get McDonalds. ($3.02 for my part) I check my phone and see a text that we’re finally getting reimbursed for the deductible I paid after my car was in an accident last August (I say my car because no one was in it at the time.)
2pm - I get off work and go off to run some errands before I pick up L. First I stop at USPS to drop off some packages from Mercari sales I made. Second stop is gas at Costco because Tuesday me decided it was Thursday me’s problem to get gas. ($49.27) Third and last stop is PetSmart to get some Greenies for our dogs. ($57.69 after a coupon) I normally get their dental treats at Costco but since I’m on a time crunch, I couldn’t pop in and risk a line to get them there.
4:30pm - We get home and I run to go film a couple of videos for my budgeting Youtube. Once I finish up, we go on our walk while I upload that to my Drive to edit when we get back.
7pm - I’m doing some work in the office editing and crafting when L comes in to tell me the burgers he tried making from HelloFresh are super disappointing. I try a bite and he’s right. He looks super depressed and was trying to get pizza tomorrow so I offer to get it tonight. ($32.07) He speeds off to pick it up since I try to be in bed by 8pm.
8:30pm - L gets back around 8 with dinner so I eat real quick before going to bed. He’s a lucky duck that only works 4 days a week so today is his Friday.
Daily Total - $142.05
Day 5 - Friday
4am - My alarm goes off and I decide after the week it’s been, I’m going in late. I text my friend and a coworker that I’ll be in around 8.
6am - I get up just before 6 and start getting ready. I do some dishes and edit a video to upload later today before heading out.
8am - I stop at the bank and then pick up my friend on the way to work. She wants Starbucks so we call a coworker to see if she wants anything and place an order. I try their new chocolate mint creme frappuccino (it tastes just like mint chip ice cream!) and get a cheese danish. ($9.10) We finally get to work around 9.
12pm - I go take care of stuff in the front office while I eat my lunch of leftover pizza.
1:30pm - I leave work a little earlier than usual because I have to pick up my parents from the hospital. My dad had a follow up surgery after undergoing surgery in December to remove a tumor and my mom can’t drive. I text my mom there’s traffic and as I head out, she calls me to tell me that she just got a call my dad was out and ready to be picked up. My brother was still with her so he offered to pick him up so I change directions and head home instead.
3:30pm - I get home and crawl into bed to take a nap. I don’t know if I’m exhausted just from the past couple of weeks of work or if it’s depression tiredness because of everything I’ve been feeling towards work this week but either way, I nap.
4:30pm - I wake up rejuvenated! I do some dishes and after seeing the leftover pizza we still have, I text L and we decide to finish those off and we can make the planned chicken dish tomorrow. He had gone off to watch a movie with his parents while I was napping so I sit down to eat round 2 of pizza by myself.
6pm - I go to the office and work on some crafts as per usual.
7pm - I’m losing sunlight so I go hang out in the living room for a bit. L has Delta Green today so I get to watch Queer Eye and cry with my dogs after I feed them.
8pm - In bed and lights are out!
Daily Total - $9.10
Day 6 - Saturday
5:45am - My alarm goes off which is unusual for a Saturday but we are going to Universal Studios today! My parents bought us season passes for our birthdays and we’re finally getting to use them.
8am - We get to Universal (where parking is $30) and start bookin it to Super Nintendo World. That’s today’s primary objective since we can come back again for the rest of the park.
11:30am - We finally get off the Mario Kart ride! I liked it but it’s a little bit of sensory overload. We don’t explore much of the rest of the area since it’s super crowded. Once we get out of the area, we stop at a little store to get a drink and a snack. ($9.34)
1pm - After going on the Studio Tour ride, we upgrade our passes before heading home. ($335.80) We have friends coming in a couple of months so we figure it’s worth it to upgrade since what we’re paying for the upgrade would be what we’d pay for for tickets + parking as our original pass was blocked out when they’d be here.
2pm - I’m dying of hunger so we stop at Red Robin on the way back to have lunch. ($49)
3pm - We finally get back to our area and stop to get gas ($47.09) before we stop at Target to get some flowers for our moms tomorrow. ($24.78 after a $10 gift card) Lord knows we don’t want to try to buy flowers tomorrow.
4pm - We get home and time to veg out for a bit. After laying for a bit, I get up to pack up another Mercari order and list some more stuff to sell. I finally started making my way through selling a box of stuff I saved from our move to resell. Once I finish up with that, I settle in to start reading It Starts With Us by Colleen Hoover.
6pm - I’m still pretty full from our late lunch and L doesn’t plan on eating dinner, so like a responsible adult, I eat cookies and milk as “dinner.” I finish up while watching a Youtube video then head to the office to craft a bit.
7pm - I leave our office and go read some more and cry about how much I love Atlas Corrigan (iykyk.) L comes to join me after a bit to spend some time together before bed.
8pm - Bed calls to me and I crawl into it.
Daily Total - $496.01
Day 7 - Sunday
6am - The pups wake me up to let them out. I do so and crawl back into bed.
7am - I finally get up and do my morning routine. I hang up some clothes we had to leave hanging to dry because my in-laws’ dryer sucks and then I go sign some Mother’s Day cards for my mom and K. Once I finish that up, I go take care of putting away some dog food and throwing out old boxes.
9am - I decide it’s nap time.
10am - I wake up lost and confused because the dogs don’t have water and L is nowhere to be found. I look to the kitchen counter, see one of the flower arrangements we bought yesterday is gone, and I realize he went over to give them to his mom. I change my shirt real quick and throw on shoes to go wish her a happy Mother’s Day.
11am - I come back over and ready to make lunch. Those plans are quickly ruined when I open our potatoes and see half of them are spoiled. I sigh and head out to get us lunch. I get Subway for myself ($9.06) and L requests Jack In the Box. ($11.40) After I eat lunch, I sit down and finish devouring It Starts With Us and cry through the ending. I love love.
1:30pm - Almost time to leave for my parents’! I get myself together and gather what we need to take with us and we’re out the door soon after. I spend most of the ride fighting the Pizza Hut app then the site to get the order placed. ($78.89) My mom requested Pizza Hut as her Mother’s Day dinner so it was nice and simple for us.
3pm - We arrive at my parents’ with food in hand. My sisters arrive shortly after and I give them cards to sign. Once they’re all signed, I give one to my mom and one to K. We all sit down to eat and I’m v excited because I mcfuckin love Pizza Hut.
6pm - K cuts my hair as we have a graduation and family photos the next weekend. Once that’s done, we gather leftovers to take home and off we go. On the way back we stop to get gas. ($82.86, damn SUVs)
7:30pm - We finally get home. We feed the dogs and hang out for a bit before getting to bed.
Daily Total - $182.21
At the end of each day please tally up your daily expenses. Then at the end of your diary please tally up all expenses in the following categories:
Food + Drink - $298.21
Fun / Entertainment - $365.80
Home + Health - $0
Clothes + Beauty - $0
Transport - $179.22
Pets - $57.69
Other - $170.59
Lastly, reflect on your diary! How do you feel about your spending? Was this a normal week for you? Has this inspired you to make changes or has it given you a “wow I’m doing pretty good” confidence boost? Is there anything you’re actively working on? No need to answer any or all these questions but just use this space to write any thoughts you have!
To be honest, initially when I was tracking everything I felt like it was a very spendy week and as I was organizing everything to post, I was pleasantly surprised by a couple of the low-spend days. It does go to show though that it’s very worth it to actively track spending since it makes you aware of how often you swipe/hand over cash. Food continues to be our weakness and it’s especially been a struggle these past two weeks because a lot has been happening for me emotionally and food is where I go for comfort. But there has been some huge changes for us since last year so I look forward to checking in again next year!

2023.05.15 15:26 The_Brolander [Breaking Bad] When Gus Fring is managing his Pollo Loco store, is he 100% in managerial mode, or is he acting like a attentive manager as a form of cover?

I’m having a tough time trying to figure Gus out.
There are times when I see him, and I feel like he’s 100% in manager mode and that he is disconnected from his drug kingpin life…
But then there are other times, where he’s just putting on an act.
Does anyone have a solid take on him?

2023.05.12 19:13 TheRealClive "A Hitman's Paradise" Chapter One: The Anatomy of a Hit - Writer Martin Blank

"What they're not ready for is guys like you and I and Nails and all the other gnarly gnarlingtons in my life, that we are high priests, Vatican Assassin Warlocks. Boom. Print that, people, See where that goes.” Charlie Sheen
Chapter One: The Anatomy of a Hit 1998. MARICOPA, ARIZONA. A train pulled into the tiny station. A handful of passengers straggled out of the car and made their way to the dusty asphalt parking lot. Scrubby trees and miserable little bushes dotted the gravel landscape surrounding the depot. Jude came off the train last. He was dressed in a plain, rumpled, inexpensive suit. He was dragging a small, rolling suitcase and wearing cheap black sunglasses.
He crossed the platform and made his way through the enclosed waiting room. He entered the restroom, found a stall and locked the door. Forty minutes later, when the station was nearly abandoned, another man came out of the stall. He was dressed in simple blue jeans and a t-shirt and wearing leather sandals. He was wearing a baseball cap and aviator sunglasses. He had medium length blond hair and a blond goatee. He carried a duffel bag.
He walked to the parking lot and entered a waiting cab. Virtually unrecognizable, Jude Karsen headed towards Phoenix.
Twenty minutes later, the cab dropped Karsen at an industrial area of town. Several auto repair and body shops lined the streets. An Enterprise rent-a-car storefront was just about to close. “Mike Smith”, blond with a blond goatee, showed his ID to the clerk, gave her a credit card number, signed several papers and picked up his vehicle. It was a Ford Escort.

Karsen drove slowly through a residential neighborhood on the east side of Phoenix. The neighborhood of Arcadia. Upscale homes on large lots. Huge yards that turned the desert green. Beautiful trees lined the streets bringing shade from the obsessive Phoenix sun.
As he approached one home he slowed down. This home eschewed the lawn in favor of a rock garden. A koi pond sat near the front porch. As Karsen watched, a cream colored Lexus SUV pulled into the driveway. A man got out and dragged a garment bag from the trunk. He yanked out a small suitcase as well and trudged to his mailbox. Nothing but junk mail. The man slung his garment bag over his shoulder and pulled his suitcase, trying to hold on to his mail and go through it, all at the same time.
As Karsen slowly passed by the house, the man dropped the mail on the driveway. With a sigh, he set down his garment bag and bent over to pick it up. This was Jude Karsen's target. Karsen drove on.

His disguise removed, Jude Karsen paid cash for a room at a Day's Inn. They made no request for any identification. Once in the hotel room, a nondescript place with a queen-sized bed, large television and a small table with a chair, Karsen pulled a file out of his dufflebag.
In the file were several print-outs and photos. Photos of the man and the home Jude had driven by earlier today. Jude read the files over again. This was the fifth or sixth time he’d read them. Then he turned on the television and watched ESPN. He followed that with pornography viewed on his laptop. After he finished, he went to sleep.
The next morning Jude jogged past the house in Arcadia at around 8:30 A.M. He paused across the street from the house, pretending to rub out a cramp. He watched his target leave for work. Right on time.
After a light lunch of a wrap at El Pollo Loco, Jude went back to the motel. A package was waiting for him, addressed to “Mike Smith”. There was no return address.
In the motel room, he opened the package. Inside was another set of clothes from shoes to hat. A silencer and a disassembled handgun. 3 mags of ammo. He assembled the weapon and then took the file on his target and burned it in the tub.
After this he took a nap.
Several hours later, he put on gloves and wiped down the room. Carefully and thoroughly. He wasn't particularly worried about it at this point. It was more out of habit than fear. A meditative practice, almost.
At 9:30 P.M. Jude walked down the street toward his target's house. He was wearing khaki shorts with large pockets, gym shoes and a polo shirt. He had a baseball cap on, pulled a bit low. One hand was in his shorts pocket.
Approaching the house, he crossed the yard, crunching on the gravel as he moved towards the door. He reached the koi pond and went over the bridge to the front porch. Only a few lights were on. Through the window he could see the light from the TV casting shadows on the back wall. Sitcom laughter could be heard.
Karsen walked up to the front door and put on gloves. With a gloved hand he reached for the door handle. It was unlocked and opened quietly. Karsen walked inside.
Moving soundlessly through the house, he drew his weapon from his pocket. The noise from the sitcom playing on television was almost surreal. Jude rounded the corner into the living room. He stared at the middle-aged man sitting in an easy chair for a moment before the man knew he was there. He raised the gun, pointing it at his target.
The target looked over, startled. He spilled his beer can on the carpet. He saw the gun, the silencer. He looked from the gun to Jude's face. He wasn't frightened, exactly.
“Why...are you here?”
“I don't ask why.”
“This is...not cool…”
“Really?” Karsen was bemused by this response. He fired three times. Two into the chest and a security round into the target's left temple. Karsen cocked his head and studied the dead man, slumped back in his La-Z-Boy recliner, almost as if he had fallen asleep while watching TV.
Karsen turned to the TV and shut it off. He left, making sure to lock the front door behind him.
He walked back to his rental car, got in and drove away.

Proud Volt Owner
Thanks to you all for your comments making me realize that even after the 100k warranty expires I don't need to worry since the BECM has already been replaced. This is after sport mode to get some bowls at El Pollo Loco. I love my pearl white baby. I still use my 97 4 Runner for trips down to the local grocery store to keep her active, but the Volt is the best car I've ever owned.
