Thanks.

Shit always works out.

I don't talk gay, I don't walk gay, it's like people don't even know I'm gay unless I'm blowing them.

Totally awesome guy, he's like almost his families version of me. If he was 6 years younger, a foot or two taller and a lot more narcisstic and racist that resemblence would be uncanny.

So I'm staying with my parents, which I really didn't want to do, until I can sort some paper work shit out for a place I could have back down in Wellington.

It's fucking frustrtating to say the least.
I've been there a few times myself. It sucks ass.

Vera I sure hope your translating work pays really, really well. I can find nothing else good in it.

Is this all the same author?

RE: Ranting corner
Well, it doesn't pay nearly enough. Actually, you get more money for translating documents, but I hate that, it's boring and has other drawbacks.

Luckily, it's not the same author (not like at my previous translation job - I did about 12 books by the same author, R. A. Salvatore - by the end he was like a personal friend... I could finish his sentences without reading them). Plus, my editor knows I hate this one, so he rarely gives me her books, but sometimes it's inevitable. Most of them are pretty crappy but this one is by far the worst. And the ego on that creature. Unbelievable!

EDIT: @Chas. Not seconded. That's way pathetic, she's trying way way too hard. And failing miserably. Though the rest may just have been even worse, I'll give you that.

It certainly does.

I don't even know what that means so I will just nod my head and agree. Yes I am.

Don't worry Vera, my erotic novel, "50 Shades of Disapointmen - A realistic tale of young love" is coming along nicely. So hopefully it wont be something shite for you to read.
