    I have a rare night off from job #2. Part of me wants to just go home from job 1 and sleep, the other wants to go do something stupid since I rarely get that chance anymore. Either way, being home from work at 530 will be nice

    My school had debited my account for tuition and left my account with $15 for the next two weeks, so I told my dad about it and he said he'd give me some money next week till I got paid. Lo and behold as soon as I got off class, I checked my bank account and my mom had sent me money with a note saying "don't worry about it". I seriously love my parents and cherish them and I hope some of you guys feel the same way about yours.

    Listening to 45s on the ancient turntable that sounds amazing for what it is. Phil Spector was such a great music producer. Too bad he was a shit human being.

    They have sugar free chocolate syrup now. I've seen it before, but only one brand had it, and I had tried that brand's sugar free BBQ sauce and it was wretched, so I wasn't going near their damn chocolate syrup. But now apparently Hershey's offers it, too. And right next to it on the shelf was the generic Wal-Mart brand.

    So, I bought the generic brand (hey, I'm poor and it was cheaper) and tried a little taste when I got home and it was AWFUL. I mean, bloody fucking awful. Didn't taste a thing like chocolate. Tasted like bitter medicine. Still, because I had just bought milk and haven't had chocolate milk in forever, I decided to try it anyway and, lo and behold, when mixed with milk the bitterness completely goes away and it actually, seriously, almost tastes exactly like chocolate milk. Close enough, anyway.

    And yes, I know that milk has sugar, but it's not too bad as long as you don't drink too much of it, but putting regular chocolate syrup in it would officially be too much, so this works perfectly. Take that, diabetes!

    TL;DR- Hey, I can have chocolate milk again!

    ^^Yeah, there's a pretty decent amount of sugar in there. The nutrition label on the bottle I bought says it has 12 grams of sugar per cup. And 12 grams of carbs, which just turns straight into sugar, too.

    Anyway, they're starting to come out with a lot more sugar free, or almost sugar free, stuff. Which is great. There's some pretty good almost sugar free pink lemonade I'll buy on occasion (it has so few carbs and so little sugar it's not even worth worrying about). And "diet" cranberry juice, which is the same way. And I even found, in one store only, a "diet" apple juice. It has almost no carbs or sugar and actually, honest to God, tastes pretty damn close to apple juice. I believe it's made with real juice, too. Though they call it "diet apple drink" or some such nonsense, but it's got all the vitamins and good stuff in it, I believe. Not as good as the real thing, but since I can't really have the real thing, it's a good alternative.

    When my parents come by to visit, and buy me $184 in groceries, then write me a check for my rent, THEN leave me an extra bit of cash, and take me out to eat at this awesome Asian place downtown.

    I love my parents.

    Jail fo 10 days. Though I wouldn't mind being handcuffed for a bit again under better circumstances, or a pretty lady.

    Edit: Spaced it earlier but just found out my niece is gonna have a baby, as if i didn't already feel old as it is.

    Bought myself a TV, work is going well, I'm happy... Nothing major is going on in my life right now but I still feel really good, in spite of a few people who would try to bring me down.

    Ditto.

    One time, my parents loaned me the money to buy a used car. I made monthly payments back to them for like a year, and then they forgave the balance.

    Now that they are older, they send checks with no strings attached. I seriously love my parents and I think they seriously love me back.

    My mom gave me even more money citing "I know you have some shows coming up". It really pays to take her to these appointments.

    Teaching was great today. I really love teaching: it's a unique feeling after having taught classes that went well. I really hope I can make a career out of this.

    My fears about the focusing on my new camera appear to be completely unfounded, as I'm quickly looking through the photos from a gig I covered tonight and they're far better than I expected

    Jesus. I understand that once you get used to it then it'd be fine, but that has gotta suck for covering things like sports, bands, etc.

    To be fair, my lenses are in kinda poor condition/difficult to focus.

    Oh dude, I would never even TRY to do that shit without an autofocus lens!
