Where have I been?

Damn good question.

Not that too many people would be asking it though.

But, for those of you who did....

I've been busy. Very busy.

Work problems, family problems, and girl problems.

As of Saturday passed, past coming back to haunt me problems as well.

Once again, difficulties have arisen with my old chums from the other side of the now fallen Iron Curtain.

Seems a cousin of mine made a foolish mistake and placed a wager on a recent football(American, not soccer)game.

He placed this wager with a bookie whose last name ends with an "ich". My least favorite people as of late.

Despite the fact my cousin is a big boy now and responsible for his own bad decisions, I'd prefer to not have him end up missing, or mutilated, or both. So being the good eldest cousin that I am, and being someone who knows and understands how these villains operate, I decided to help out.

First of all, 7 points on the principal is a ridiculous rate of interest. By this dumb vodka barrel's math, my cousin's 10k debt would be up to 17k in a week.


Secondly, said vodka barrel doesn't even have "rights" to my cousin's neighborhood.


This is MY cousin we're talking about. Not some dipshit that nobody is going to miss or care about. I may be out of the game, but I still hold high score in a few events.

Long story short, I went to go see the vodka barrel.

I reminded him about the thre points I stated above, and suggested he and my cousin come to a more agreeable arrangement.

I had no intention of having my cousin's debt erased. He was stupid enough to place the bet, he lost, and now he needs to pay up. A lesson learned. I did however see to it that the insane vig was nullified.

My cousin is a dumbass college grad who didn't really know better. He thought things work in real life like they do on TV. This was his first time dipping into this particular social strata. To be sure, it will be his last.

This arrangement didn't come without a price though.

As always, a particular amount of violence was necessary. Mainly to ensure that points were made and messages were recieved.

To this end, I am glad I will be taking a vacation next week.

I need one.
