Scanner Report 10-5-12

Once again it's FRYday. I broke down and ordered the Zapper. Didn't want to but have no choice I can't handle watching mice walk up my lamp wires onto my desk. It gives me flashbacks of the movie Lost Weekend I've had quite a few of those in my time, I don't deserve it now that I'm sober.
So my phone's been ringing off the hook for months; calls from Bank of America, and Wells Fargo asking for a fella named Eric G. Apparently he took out some loans using his old phone number. His old phone number has been my phone number for over 10 years now so now I think he just took my phone number off my Facebook account and somehow got it in his name. These banks are looking for him to pay back these loans he took out and they are calling me all of the time. I'm getting angry I have tried calling both banks back with the numbers they leave but they want me to punch in the last 4 numbers of my social security number and I'm not doing that. Even with this guy's last initial I bet some of you know who I'm talking about he lives in Montecito he was with a company that recently went bankrupt. Anyway I never answer my phone but I'm going to have to so I can try and get this all cleared up because this person doesn't care whose name he soils in the name of money, jerk!
A lot of suicides lately someone remarked in the comment section of the gal who was up at Cold Springs Bridge that there was a coldness to the comments, or possibly it was my comment they felt was cold, I don't know. If I seem cold toward suicidal people I don't mean to be. I have been there many times myself. Life has always been hard for me I never made it like some people do. My childhood, the meningitis, brain damage having to start over again and again. Never married, never could hold a job like otter people never could save money, buy a decent car BLAH, BLAH, BLAH! So What I have never been ALL THERE. It kinda pisses me off when people have promising futures, decent vehicles, Loving family, and friends kill themselves. It's one thing if they are terminally ill, I understand that. But many are depressed, or they lost their home for whatever reason or they broke up with their old man/lady. So What. Those are things that can be replaced. Another one is they cannot get off the stuff whatever the stuff is. For me it was booze.
The last time I got off the stuff it was Pure Hell, but I got off of it. The last day I dropped an overdose after doing a Beer Run on Texaco my buddy Shakey, was the manager. It was kinda funny because the police came and took me to the hospital. My girlfriend went also. I went through all the interviews I didn't pass out or nothing after taking 60 lorazipan and drinking over 60 beers. They released me in my gal's care she took care of me for a couple days. I had 11 months off the sauce when she dropped dead of a heart attack, my best friend died of bone cancer 4 months later. Oh Boy I was hurting for a real long time after that. I wanted to drink, and die all over again and not feel but I never drank and in fact quit cigarettes also but it was HELL. When I start getting down in the dumps I try to push all the depressing stuff away if I dwell on it I start entertaining all kinds of negative thoughts and I don't need that. The best thing for anyone to do if they are thinking about suicide is Get Busy. If you don't have a job volunteer, help someone; go out have a cup of coffee downtown make friends with other people...Get Out of Your Head. Everyone has weird thoughts, and self-destructive thoughts, they may last only a second but they are there don't entertain them, don't act on them. Get Busy go to one of the shelters and shovel beans on a plate. Go volunteer somewhere Pacific Pride, Catholic Charities, The Rescue Mission, The Salvation Army, the Shelter. Go talk to someone if you have to we live in a great place here in Santa Barbara there is a lot of help here. Anyway now I'm rambling like an old rambler.

I was pretty busy today looking for things to combat my mouse problem. I ended up ordering a Zapper there is more than one I could hear them at night when I'm in bed crunching on things. I keep thinking I'm going to wake up with Michael Jackson standing at the end of my bed singing the song "Ben" I can't deal with something like that. The other evening I was watching TV and this mouse climbs out behind the cabinet and is running back and forth on my computer wires. I have to take care of this I tried the humane way now I have to try something else. Have a Great Weekend and Dog Willing I will see you on Monday. Roger
