I'm STILL a self confessing, self professing know-it-all, or so I think!

I think it’s time to make some changes ’round here

Yeah gonna tear it up
Gonna trash it up
Gonna round it up
Gonna shake it up
Oh no baby I will not lie down

Turn this thing around
I will not go quietly
I will not lie down
I will not go quietly
I will not lie down
I will not go quietly
I will not lie down
No I will not lie down

holy shite!! I just lost $24,000!!

… thievery in the middle of the night! Well, was in the middle of the night when I noticed, checking my CIBC app… my prized platinum is no longer, my account was purged – supervisor said it was due to 18 months of inactivity carrying a zero balance! Try closer to 18 years, and that’s the truth… musta been ten years at least I haven’t used it. My AMEX and Capital One are both much better credit card choices, offering lower interest rates… the latter at a fixed 5.99% – beat that bitches! And, now w/my new TD Infinite First Class as well, I got shitloads of credit up the wazoo! Nevertheless, am expecting a call next few days from customer care, then will even move up the food chain to the ombudsman if I feel the need escalating matters. I feel it’s a futile fight, but I feel I’ve been wronged (no letter, no notification whatsoever) and NO I won’t be applying for a new CIBC credit card spank you very much, as has already been suggested to me twice. I need that like I need a hole in the fecking head! I’m just hopeful they’ll do right by me and throw a bone my way … is all this dog wants!!

Solid 4K!

Garmin was generous today, I’ll take it… usually on the wrong end of the GPS stick! Seventeen and a half minutes, only twenty-five seconds off my PR! Splits were consistent too, although my 3rd surprised me – it’s hands down my fastest, but not today? Strange?! Oh, well, I blame the slight headwind, lol! Feels good laying down a good time! Chuffed!

I used to be now I’m not what you see, Lord I try

And who’s to care if I grow my hair to the sky
I’ll take a wish and a prayer cross my fingers cause I always get by

My gypsy road can’t take me home
I drive all night just to see the light
My gypsy road can’t take me home
I keep on pushin’ cause it feels alright

Thanks Taylor!!

Chick… not dude! As in Swift… and, was she! All started w/seeing my Bell bill this morning… then seeing red! Was furious… I just spoke w/customer service not even 2 weeks ago straightening the whole mess/everything out?! Honestly, I’ve had it, was done… was calling to quit. Dude transferred me over to their cancellation department, and is where Taylor took over. She was able to do what others couldn’t, or weren’t allowed. She told me they had an across the board price increase (which I surmised), but what pissed me off, is why when given a month’s credit last time for my problems, wasn’t it for the new price, instead of the old since the increase was implemented beginning April? That’s what tipped me off, alerted me that something was amiss! Needless to say, that was the first thing done, the difference credited to my account – funny, after getting that, was still gonna quit, lol! Then, after a few minutes on hold, she came back w/a crazy-assed price, lower than my previous negotiations (which, I did receive the credit for as well). Starting today, I’ll be saving over $135 a year (on top of all the credits, so many, hard to keep track, lol)! She did warn me that price increases do occur, but also said they’re not expecting any in the foreseeable future (this year). Oh, suffice it to say, I asked for further retroactive discounts as well… and received them! NOW, I’m extremely happy… thanks again, Taylor!!

I bought the bitch!!

danistrulytheman … the domain, I own the cunt! No more danistrulytheman.wordpress.com… starting today, I’m¬†danistrulytheman.com

easypeasytrapezie!!

… about time too, been blogging in various formats coming on 10 years… WordPress made it easy/painless … they’ve been whoring ($$) me to update for eons, lol. And, while their conversion US>CAN rate wasn’t necessarily in my favour… they used dollar increments for all charges, which I prefer, thanks guys!

… am sure you’re wondering – bottom line difference for y’all? None!! Same shit as always… read it and weep!!

“best $40 I ever spent” – danistrulytheman

Jonathan laughed when I said that! I greeted my postie (3rd day straight – finally arrived) today, I had both decals applied within 20 minutes! The pic of the one on the hood doesn’t do it justice (if anything, reveals my chipping paint), but the rear pic is awesome… is the one people will see most of the time! At a distance, both look so incredible… feel like I’ve a new car, lol! Oh, BTW… this is the first money I spent on my honey since buying her 6 months ago… BabyZen is very, very, happy… I am too!!

4K – 17:37!!

Finally a run to blog home about! I’ve been having a difficult time, and I don’t know why? I’ve been running over 2 months for the 2015 season, and don’t have the distance stamina I should, and def don’t have the pace I expect. I’ve been running very slow compared to my glory days of 2013 when I set all my records. I don’t know where this came from… I’m particularly proud of my 3rd split; I was shocked when my wrist buzzed and I looked down to see a 4:12, I didn’t feel winded, or that I ran it particularly fast/hard. I certainly had plenty left in the tank, and even my final split although fast as well, I never went out and killed it. I know one day I’ll be able to finish in 8:15… and if I could run a solid 2K to start, I’ll have a great chance at PR-ing. As it was, I only missed it by just over 30 seconds. And, to show you how slow I’ve been, my previous best this year was 18:50 (which I ran twice)! Today, if nothing more is vindication…
