Labor Ready [23 Jul 2009|10:53pm]

So I'm without a job, for a few months now, and no matter how many places I apply to I can't even get a phone call back.

I'm defeated, frustrated, and desperate.

I'm wondering if anyone here has any experience with Labor Ready? I've never done any kind of day labor stuff before and I'd like to know what to expect.

Thanks in advance...

Breast Cancer Fundraiser July 25, 2009 in Orange Park FL [21 Jul 2009|12:24am]

My awesome coworkers have spent the last 2.5 months organizing a fundraiser for Breast Cancer research.  They did this all in secret and I only found out about it two weeks ago.  The event will be held this saturday, July 25 from 11-3pm at the Chik-Fil-a across from the Orange Park mall in Orange Park FL.  There will be a dunking booth, bouncy house, snow cones, arts and crafts, a car wash and much more. 

Everyone is invited to come out and have some fun and help raise $ for the Donna Foundation.

Work [20 Jul 2009|02:22pm]

[ mood | worried ]

Here's a shot in the dark: Anyone hiring? My last job downsized and closed the Jacksonville office, and three months on, I can't even get an interview. Depressing. I'm looking for anything from food service to retail to customer service to data entry. Thanks, guys.

dancing in jax [13 Jul 2009|11:34am]

Hi again guys,

I was wondering if anyone knew of any dance nights in town featuring music such as rockabilly, motown, swing, etc. I lived in Gainesville for awhile and they had a super "Twist-n-Shout" night that played that kind of stuff and it was SO MUCH FUN. I can't seem to find anything on the internet about it locally, and I have my doubts, but maybe someone here knows of something? Thanks!

comcast vs direct tv [06 Jul 2009|11:28am]

hey all,

i haad a question for anyone here who might have experience with, preferably, both of these companies in the jax area. i am sick and dang tired of comcast raising the price every single month, and am considering making the switch to direct tv. however, i've read some unfavorable things about losing reception during rainy weather, which as we all know, we get a lot of here around here. do any of you have experience with this and can give me some insight as to whether the switch is worth it? thanks!

the oughts (aughts?) [23 May 2009|11:45pm]


the 00s are about 90.someodd% Complete. What WAS this decade? I want to know what we will look back on in 20 years and think? iPods? Myspace/Facebook? DVDs? The Bush years? The Internet? What about fashion and movies and stuff? Terrorism? In 1999 I was able to look back on the decade with nostalgia even that early. But in 2009? I don't know for sure... ?

For those of you into the local music scene:

Yesterday Barbie, the lead singer of the band Rubbing Down Debbie, died. She spent nearly two weeks fighting for her life in the ICU unit.

While she was still alive there were 2 benefit concerts planned to help with the medical costs. All the proceeds from these will be going to the family. I would like to spread the word about them.

The first one is May 30th at The French Quarter:

The second is June 28th at the Pit with:

Coda (Led Zeppelin tribute band)

Please help me find hit & run (vehicle damage only) driver (Jacksonville Beach) [19 May 2009|08:50pm]

My car was hit while parked in the street on Colonies Drive between 11pm Friday 5/15 and 7am Sat 5/16.  The person failed to stop or leave any note regarding the accident.  The only information I have is that it was either a Red truck or SUV. The person broke his(or her) grill and shattered a headlight and lost his/her turn signal light.  Possibly a year 86-88,  Nissan as the turn signal light says it is.    ANY information will be helpful.  If you have seen this vehicle around town, or know someone who knows someone, please tell me.  I know this is a long shot but I still think there are good people out there willing to help.  There will be a reward of $100. IF there is actual proof that this person did it.  And yes, I have police documentation as well as the parts from that truck in my possession.
If you are the person that hit me, I ask that you do the responsible thing and own up to the accident.

Thank you

I'm amazed by the local evening news' headline stories [08 Apr 2009|10:16pm]

On Channel 4 tonight:

"Local couple robbed by men with shotgun for box of Popeye's chicken."


And yes, during the story they actually said, "...the robbers really 'loved that chicken.'"

Moments after my last post I got "fished" on AIM.

This means I got an random IM from a random person, and they got one from me. My fish was named JoyfulCoho. Thou the person I ended up speaking with was not named Joyfulcoho. They saw my name as Bizarecoho.

More information on what a fishbot is (In case it happens to you):

I'm thinking of moving WDJS to Blogger.

Why? To make it more of a "blog" community then a "I am selling shit" community. Not that I am closing this community. It's just an idea I had.

I'd need Authors. People interested in writing about Jax, not always complaints, but always about our lovely city.

If there is any interest in this idea please email me at whydoesjaxsuck@gmail.com

The Point [04 Mar 2009|08:39pm]

I don't listen to the radio alot. But when I do, it tends to be 80's stations mostly.

So today I decided to flip on 102.9 "The Point" in Jacksonville. But it wasn't The Point. It was playing basically "Planet Radio" type music. Then the station ID came on saying "The New Rock Alternative". ahh.

What happened to The Point's 80's station? 0_o

Move out cleaning? [23 Jan 2009|06:11pm]

I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations for companies (or individuals) for a move-out cleaning of my house...3 bedroom, 2 bath, living room, dining room, kitchen, garage - about 1100 sq ft total. It's not filthy or anything, but we just want to be done with it when we finally move out. I've put in for some estimates from companies, but I figured I'd look here too. Here's a basic list of what would need to be done -

Clean baseboards
Spot clean walls
Clean windowsills and doorframes
Sweep & mop kitchen/dining area & bathrooms (tile floors)
Clean bathroom #1 (fiberglass tub/shower, marble countertops, sink, toilet)
Clean kitchen (marble countertops, sink, inside/on top of cabinets, stove/oven, fridge/freezer)
Clean bathroom #2 (tile/marble/glass stall shower, marble countertops, sink, toilet)
Vacuum/steam carpets in 3 bedrooms (carpet in living room and hallway is being replaced)
Clean ceiling fans

I'm looking to spend about $100-$150 bucks. I've never had someone else do it, so I have no idea what the prices are, but this seems reasonable to me. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
