Well...fuck.

Dad just got diagnosed today with late stage pancreatic cancer. Docs have given him 6-8 months to live. Probably towards the lower end, as he's got a whole host of other issues to begin with.

So in addition to the "Yakov Smirnoff opening for the Spin Doctors at the Iowa State Fair" (thank you, Deadpool) shitstorm that's incoming as the cancer kills him, it also means there's no way I can book for the 2018 cruise knowing what's potentially on the horizon.

Fuck you cancer. Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you, fuck you, fuck you.

EDIT: Y'know, I changed my mind today. I'm going to book 2018 anyways, then see what happens. I can always sell the ticket if the worst comes to pass.

Today's list of Calls To Make:

1. Call the CRA (Canada's version of the IRS) to get code for online business tax returns.
2. Wait on hold for 15 minutes. Give the CRA agent my SIN and shit so that I can verify that I am setting up the account for the business number associated with my SIN and file this looming return (for a period in which I made zero money, natch).
3. Get security code, log in. Agent hangs up of course.
4. Attempt to enter business number that was issued to me when I set up the business.
5. Get error message saying that I am not listed as a contact for the business. WHAT THE FUCK. I SET UP ALL OF THE ACCOUNTS. I LISTED ON THE REGISTRATION THAT I AM THE FUCKING PRESIDENT OF THE FUCKING BUSINESS (because I am in fact the fucking president of this business) WHAT THE FUCK.
6. Attempt to call back. Line busy for 10 minutes straight.

FUCK YOU CRA.

I came in to bitch about stuff, but my stuff is no big deal. Sorry to hear about your dad Gratch. I hope you are able to find peace.

Since I'm here already, last week I had to break up with two people. I hurt them both pretty bad, and hurting people makes you feel really shitty. I also worked about 30 hours on top of regular work on an apartment I manage that went vacant, and it was 95-100 degrees most of the week. Changing outlets & switches & repairing flooring while dripping sweat is not the most fun.

Dad passed today, 6 weeks after getting his cancer diagnosis. One of the last things we talked about (before losing his ability to speak) was that he thought the "Listen to Death Metal" sticker I recently put on my car was 'pretty cool'.

The only silver lining to this is that I will get to got on the 2018 cruise. Other than that...this fucking sucks.

Fuck you cancer, and RIP dad. :cry:

Due to the storm that hit Ireland pretty hard on Monday while I was away, I had to stay two more days in Brussels. I was lucky enough to have friends that were able to lend me a room at the last minute, but spent more money than expected and lost 2 days of vacation. I'm currently waiting for my plane back to Dublin.

The guy I'm visiting in Tampa pre-cruise just got pulled onto a last-minute project at his work. Luckily I can still drop in on him, but I might not be able to see him as long, or drag him down to Miami :( :( :(

The ship is broading, the forum is in a slumber
I'm at work, feeling like butt lumber
If only I had an excuse for this intolerable travesty
I might book again, if they brought back the Majesty
The ship is now about to sail, with friends and bands in tow
I'll be blasting some 70K tunes, and feeling the waves below
So bon voyage, sailors of metal
Pace yourself, but keep your foot on the pedal
Enjoy Sepultura, Sabaton, and Kreator
Do you think Aeternam could play any later?
That is all for now, perhaps I'll come back for more
Until next time, horns up, I'm off to blast some Belphegor.

^^^^ :lol: Very nice!

The ER I work for treated a record number of patients in January, the highest ever per single month in the (100 year plus) history of our ER - 5,570 patients. This exceeded our previous record by at least 400 patients. Go home snowbirds, and take your flu home with you! :bitch:
