RubenX's Consolidated Whinage Thread (February 2009)

Hi Foo!

Today I'm consolidating all my stuff into one single thread to avoid spamming the forums with all my whinage and drama.


The 2 month honeymoon with my wife ended yesterday over an argument. Remember the Gym membership I didn't paid because she was only going twice a month? Well it turns out she took the video camera (a birthday present from me) to the pawn shop, got a loan and paid the Gym. Yesterday the pawn shop called, she was about to loose the video camera and I ended up paying to get the videocam back.

We argued and we are officially in hostile mode. Sucks lots... I'll try to fix it. I miss having a happy wife (and the mind blowing sex that come with that).

My Spine

The surgery worked. I no longer feel the horrendous pain in my leg. But as the Doc warned, there is some pain/numbness that comes and goes. This is because the nerve inside the spine was so severely pinched that it takes a long time (sometimes up to a year) to completely heal. It comes for an hour and then goes away. Not a big deal. Not even a pain, more like a little soreness. Still, it gets me scared every time it happens.


I started working again. Working takes so much time out of my life. I didn't noticed before but after staying at home for almost 2 months, it is clear I spent a lot of hours at the office. Guess I should be glad for having a job. But that doesn't mean I have to like working. Staying at home is so much better.


Following my supervisors advice and the advice of many Foosters as well, I'm now officially a college student. I'll start classes on March 9th. My first class will be Logic Circuits I... I can't wait to start designing circuits and soldering stuff. I'm on Computer Engineering btw.

The bad thing is that I will have to repeat differential equations. That's gonna suck because I don't remember anything about calculus. Is gonna suck a lot. I effing hate calculus.

Home Office

Mine is a disaster of major proportions. I need to organize this mess somehow. You can't barely walk in here. I'm gonna have to buy some drawers or shelves or something. It is causing great stress because I like to be organized and this mess is making feel like a pig.

The Bike

I've been cleared for riding. I have not started yet. There is always something more important to do or is very cold outside. I feel like a slacker.

The Old Photos project

I'm scanning tons of pics that I rescued from my Mom's place. There are many that I want to share with you once I have them scanned. This makes me happy.

The New PC project

This got procrastinated because I was going to visit my folks for a few days. Now I'm gonna use those funds to pay for college (till my employer's tuition reimbursement program kicks in). I really wanted that new PC. But I guess the money will be best invested in getting an education. I went to comp usa and got one extra gig of ram for the old PC I have and a consolation price...

My Children

My son is getting more distant. He is getting punished all the time for being a slacker, not performing at school, crapping his pants (appointment made with his pediatrician) etc. He's behaving like a rebel teenager, but he's only 8. It's been hard with my son lately.

My baby girl on the other side is acting cuter than ever. She always have a smile for me and she's usually happy no matter what.


I created an account but never paid too much attention to it because my wife rejected my friends request (we were in a hostility phase). Lately I thought about tracking down old friends and coworkers and got hooked up. I've found so many old friends using that thing, it's amazing. People who went with me to high school 2k miles away and guess what? They are now living 2 blocks away from my house! It's been a social success. If you ever thought about reconnecting with all friends, classmates and coworkers, give a try. And feel free to add me to your friends list too. RubenX loves having lots of friends ( You can find me as penar at hotmail dot com).

And that's all my whinage for now...
C ya!

I'm not even going to touch the spousal issue, but congratulations on the successful surgery, and good luck with your new schooling endeavour!
