True Story, No Lie

Judging from the title you know that this is going to be a good story or at least I think that it is.

As everyone knows I'm moving to the Las Vegas in about 3 weeks, give or take a few days. I decided to call the chic that I rent a room from, just to remind her that I will be moving out at the end of next month. I only did this give her a heads up. Just to make sure we were on the same page about this months payment. When I moved in I paid first and last months rent up front, so I was hoping she would say, "I know that you won't be paying rent. I am going to miss your monthly contribution to my mortgage. You're so great that I want to sleep with you before you leave."

It's good to have a fantasy here and there. As you can guess that's not what happen. Below is the transcript of text messages.

Leaving Transcript: (All transcript is exact. No words are spelling have been changed.)

Ace: "You know next month is my last month.
Her: "Ya??? I know ;( so you'll be paying April and then that's it? Can I visit you in las Vegas.
Ace: "Lol. Yep."
Her: "I'm going to miss you taking care of my place and helping me keep my kids in line. Are you having a going away party?"
Ace: "Not sure yet."
Her: "Well you already know I go to Las Vegas a lot so I'll see you there for sure but if you have a party before you leave I'll come to that too"
Ace: "Ok"
Ace: "Hey, I am confused. When I moved in I thought I paid first and last month's rent. $500 when I moved in and $500 on the 15th of that month."

15 minute pause

Her: "that was a unerfundable deposit. Because I didn't kow what I was getting my self into with someone I didn't know."
Ace: "Hmmm. I could have sworn it was first and last."
Her: "No because it was at first first and last and a deposet but I just ended up doing the two out of the three because that was a lot of$'s"
Ace: "But hey you have been the coolest so if you can cover April's rent I'll see what I can do about getting you back the full dropsit. Cool? In the next couple of months."

I know you are wondering what's the problem. It seems really cut and dry, but it really isn't at all. Here is the problem with the whole situation. I'm sure that I paid for first and last months rent when I moved in. I remember any and everything that has to do with my finances. Getting screwed right now is not an option for me. I'm moving down the coast and need all the money I can keep in my pockets. During the conversation we were both thinking different things that we wanted to say in the text messages. Below is how the transcript should have went.

Oh Really Transcript:

Ace: I am moving out at the end of the month. I enjoyed staying there and I am off to Las Vegas in 3 weeks. Hope all goes well with you see you later.
Her: "Okay, it was nice knowing. Don't forget to have your money in by the 5th of April.
Ace: "I don't owe you any %$#^ing money! Get the #$^@ outta here!"
Her: "Oh yes you do. I change my mind now that I need the money to pay my mortage."
Her: "Pay for April and I'll pay you back in a couple months, if you can get ahold of me after you leave. Dueces!"

Needless to say I'm about the reek havoc, if this isn't resolved.

Back Down

Yesterday was pretty cool. I started my goodbye trail. I had my first visit with some old friends that I will probably never see again after I move. Hell, I never really saw them after I moved to this secluded part of Washington. As bad as this might sound I really didn't miss them. Well just a little. It's always nice to just get out of the house and recall some of the things that mad you friends to begin with.

There were tons of drunken stories for days and the story that gets my blood boiling. The reason I steer clear of relationships and commitment.

Other than that there were laughs all around. Would've taken pictures, but I just never got around to it.

Two friends down.

Check me Out!

Well it's been a really busy week for me. I haven't really had time to update my blog this week. I'll make up for it this weekend, I have a lot of post started just need to finish them. I've been reading and replying to blogs as I see fit or when I had some spare time. Who knew that getting out of the Navy was going to be so time consuming.

Life seems to be on the move for me at this point. I blink and I feel like a miss a whole day. I know that it's all in my head though. My countdown date to moving Las Vegas is now at 33 days and flying by as quickly as I marked the days off on my calendar. (smirk) Seems like yesterday I was longing for a new challenge in life and it's just around the corner.

Here is a quick rundown. Sunday and Monday I spent the day in the hospital trying to figure out what the hell is wrong with me; why I can't sleep. The picture to the left is me lounging with the breathing machine. Yes, it's a bad as it seems. I felt like something from Star Wars or Star Trek. "Move and Captain Kirk gets it!" The one to the right is of me before bed in full sleep dress. I think I had patches and cords on every part of my body that moved. What person in their right mind could sleep with all this crap on. Luckily I had a migraine and wanted to fall asleep as soon as I could.

Being trapped at the hospital for a day and a half reminded me why I hate going and why I will stay far away. I haven't had a follow up, so I don't know what the diagnosis is yet, but I'm sure it'll be some sort of form of sleep apnea.

The last couple of days I have been just making up for the sleep that I didn't get while there. Today I went back to work. It really doesn't feel like work at this point, but I do what I must.

Mexico trip post coming soon.

I'm Hearing Voices

As my time gets shorter here in Washington, I can almost hear what appears to voices. I'm not sure what the voices are saying.

I'm not sure if it's doubt anxiety or just gas, who knows.

I think it's really starting to hit me that my departure is getting closer and closer. As much as I am trying to fight going away parties and goodbyes, I know that they will come no matter what I say. If it were up to me I would spring out of here without the slightest goodbye. I'm not one for all the mushy and sentimental stuff. I know a few of them are going to cry and want to "hug-it-out".

I think the anticipation of all that will happen in the future if starting to unfold and I just want it to stay wrapped. Keep in mind I am a man, alpha dog, chief of my domain.

Some of the voices are telling me to embrace it, let it happen. Some are saying change your number already and get the hell out of dodge. I'm leaning towards the second one because in my head it just makes since. I don't want to feel like I'm stuck in some sort of bull@$#% romantic comedy.

Basically whichever voice speaks the the loudest is the one that I'm going to follow.
