Buckwheat? Buckwheat?

I'm sorry, but I can't add anything to Casey posting photos of buckwheat on the stove.

Dammit! Still got murst, though!

Btw, can you guys help out a hapless Gen Y-er who just doesn't get the Buckwheat/Snowflake joke? *is confused*

NoVa Sideliner said...

Doh, just missed first/murst!

I was wasting time looking at Casey's advert deal: Get your ad...

Positioned “above fold” to be readily seen without (much) scrolling.

Without *MUCH* scrolling? As precise as ever, he is. But then, he's not the detail guy.

Oh, and it's rude have Buckwheat associated in any way with Casey. Poor Buckwheat.

baa said...

I think the buckwheat has more to do with a photo in his flickr account showing cooking stuff on his stove (buckwheat, maybe?, or beans) to prove how "thrify" he is.

gag.

He's so damned cute tho... in that little suit. What is it about little boys in tiny suits?

NoDebtWhatSoEver™ said...

Note that this is the well instead of rice its type of buckwheat.

lawnmower man said...

Buckwheat ? Buckwheat.

Casey is a Little Rascal?

Stephanie J. said...

Okay, let's be realistic about how far your dollar goes at the store:

His fresh veggies may be healthier, and cheapter than JJ, but as spending his money wisely on obtaining more for his dollar; fresh/healthy/organic foods are always more expensive than the sodium saturated shit you find on shelves these days.

*If* Casey were thrifty; he'd be loading up on crap like mac & cheese, cheap tuna, Ramen, and all hell other processed crap that poor people can only buy because they get more volume per dollar spent than they would if htey stuck to healthy foods.

The rice and beans; that's good. It's carbolicious, you get a lot of bang for your dollar, but he'll have to dispense with he fresh fruits and such, and stick with canned and frozen. It's cheaper.

Is casey a little rascal? I don't know.

he is a manlet.

But I am not sure he is a rascal as much as he is a criminal and low-level grifter.

Stephanie J. said...

manlet. That's cute.

Another waste of a perfectly good pulp tree.

Casey's signature looks like second grade cursive.

baa said...

@ lawnmower man

the fact that in one of his documents he has to promise not to manipulate or pressure his wife says a whole lot.

what a sad marraige they must have.

btw, i am taking bets. 1000 to 1 odds he abides by both agreements for a period of a month.

Stephanie J. said...

I think the fact that Casey placing his signature on paper means aboslutely nothing (hello... mortgage apps; prlinkbiz) -- that perhaps she should realize that those scraps of paper are equally as worthless to him.

Casey needs to cut his nails, YUCK!

Dumbfounded said...

Wow. The method of wording on those contracts say a lot! I can't imagine having so many weasel words required between my wife and me.

It is rather sad.

Lost Cause said...

Hehe...Buckwheat...You'll never work in this city again! Yeah, how apropos.

Sprezzatura said...

There's no way he's going to be able to meet the terms of that agreement, and there's also no way he's going to follow it.

First, there is no way he's going to allow himself to lose IAFF -- he'll arge that it's his sole way of making any revenue at all, which is probably true. And even if he does agree to look for a job, he'll need access to a computer to do so. What is he going to do, hand-write his resume and then snail-mail copies to employers?

Galina may sincerely want this, but it's not going to last.

lawnmower man said...

If it's genuine, the $1000/week promise is a doozy. $1000/week or no more IAFF, no new blog, no laptop or cellphone, a W-2 job, no side businesses.

If it's genuine, I hope Galina is prepared to have her bluff called. The OR ELSE OR ELSE: if Casey fails to make the $1000 and fails to give up IAFF, then what?

If it's genuine, it was Galina that put a stop to Beg-A-Thon II.

Rob: time to start an end-of-IAFF countdown?

Alan Smithee/gt said...

Hum, here's my petty but ironic comment on the flicker "No More Debt agreement" pic.

Anyone else notice that it's written on God note-paper?

Since some of it is obscured I'm not sure from what translation the verse is taken. But it goes something like this:

For of His fullness we have all received, and grace upon grace. John 1:16 (NASB)

For He it is from whose fulness we have all received, and grace upon grace. John 1:16 (WEY)

Humpf.

Putting out all kind of promises in the hopes people will want to help him BEFORE he actually does anything about his promises!

Snowflake is AMAZING....

lawnmower man said...

"valid consulting services"

Lost Cause said...

Is there some kind of law -- the longer and more complicated the promise, the most comments and annotations, the more worthless it is? Serin-dip-ity?

lawnmower man said...

@sweet cashback: nope. The Promise is dated May 17th; it's already started; that's why the Beg-A-Thon turned into a talkcast.

Dumbfounded said...

Note the 2nd contract has 5 witness signatures. It appears snowflake as pissed off more than just Galina and Yulia.

Stephanie J. said...

I wonder who all the witnesses were. SIL? The Pastor?

lawnmower man said...

Does anyone want to speculate on who the four witnesses were?

Galina, obviously. But who else? Yulia? His/her parents? Their pastor?

Sweet Cashback said...

Is it just me or does KC's handwriting look like somebody that is an elementary school dropout?
Especially the pink note looks like he was on some type of drug....

Wheatgrass joint?

lawnmower man said...

Damnit. Mursted again.

Lost Cause said...

KC's handwriting

Now I am worried about the California public schools.

Stephanie J. said...

Well, he can still beg for money; but it won't count towards his $1,000 goal. At least that's how they can justify his accepting paypal payments.

lawnmower man said...

Different handwriting on the two notes.

The "without pressuring her or manipulating her or taking advantage of her" is heartbreaking.

Nope, no narcissism here, no sir.

Alan Smithee/gt said...

From the blurred out signatures on both documents, I smell an intervention that look place over at Yulia's. 4-5 witnesses on both docs.

Signatories: Let's see: Galina, Yulia, parent?, marriage counselor??

The "I cannot talk about Galina or any family member on the blog" part? That's prime marriage counselor territory.

I sort of hate the boy and certainly detest his wittle wifey but at least the counselor (or someone) seems to know about the concept of relationship "boundaries".

Thought I have to wonder, how did it get THIS far before Casey's behavior(s) became a deal breaker??

(Rhetorical.)

Dan said...

I like how he shows the May 17 agreement, talks about its consequences, then shows the May 6 agreement and talks about how he has already broken it a couple of times. What, given their history together, would make Galina think that Snowflake will abide by a new agreement if he broke one that is less than 2 weeks old already?

Stephanie J. said...

Part of me is inclined to call in. I'd enjoy ripping him a new 'o'. But what's the point? The boy's selective hearing sort of makes the whole talk-cast a collosal waste of time for everyone. I'll get more out of a road-rage-filled commute home.

Alan Smithee/gt said...

Um, flurry of posts from me, sorry. Isn't posting the marriage boundary agreement online for Haterz ridicule breaking the part about not discussing Galina, relationships or anything too personal?

Please.

Accountability on any of this stuff? Consequences? My waning interest in CaseyLand is revived. Sadly, that's just what trolling Snowflake is trying to do, isn't it?

Damn him.

Stephanie J. said...

"...I promise not to emotionally blackmail my wife; and take advantage of her complacency in order to do what I like when I like..."

I sympathize with Galina, but I don't feel sorry for her; if she really *has* had enough, and really knew Casey; she'd have packed up her car, and would be heading towards her own potential; but instead, she's blindly following the words of a pastor; who will always counsel you to stay together; which is usually the way of the church. It's like they're asking her to give up her happiness for this dickhead... That her lot is to stand over him like a task-master to make sure he's not being naughty. That's being a Mom, not a wife! And worse she's accepting this shit!!! I can't respect someone like that.

Contracts... what a fucking joke. He's already proven his signature on paper offers no security or trustworthiness.

Dan said...

Posted at IAFF...

Alright, what's in it for us?

You want us to continue to come here and generate ad revenue for you. You want to keep your page views up so that people will want to buy/continue ad contracts at $100/mo. You want people to pay for your "consulting services".

So what's in it for us?

Are you going to answer the perfectly reasonable questions about your so-called business? Are you going to keep us completely up to date on all of your "investing" activities, and the financial results of those activities? If you are just going to continue to troll, give half-truth or completely vague answers to questions, or spout infuriatingly stupid catch phrases instead of using professional language to prove that your a professional businessman, then you can absolutely forget about earning any kind of decent revenue.

Also, I'd like to know what Galina was thinking in letting you try this little fiasco. You signed an agreement on May 6 (less than 2 weeks ago) and you have already managed to break it "a couple of times". You signed countless mortgages, lines of credit, and promissory notes on which you agreed to make payments in a timely manner, and have successfully broken every one of those promises. You agreed to keep Galina's credit history clean, pay for her schooling, and take care of her financially, and you managed to fail spectacularly in every one of those endeavors. Now, Galina expects you to keep your word on the new May 17th agreement? Sounds like she is mentally unstable as well.

Anonymous said...

Note In one of the contract's Casey promised not to post personal information about his and his wife's relationship on the blog. By posting the contract he has already broken that promise.

lawnmower man said...

Sorry no more Beg-a-Thons… that’s part of the new agreement. But you can always hire me to do some kind of a legitimate service for you…

That feels like a boundary being tested already: "legitmate service", wink-wink. Does bug-eating count?

A church brought them together. That same church will fix this same error. While I question the original conflation I aplaud the subsequent retification.

I see an unbroken pattern. You all know this same pattern. A very few of you are old enough to have experienced it the first time. Many of us have seen it, passively, second-hand. What we have here is "Wimpy" the sidekick of the olde Popeye cartoons. His trademark? "I will gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today." Casey has been playing for time his whole life.

@ everyone who has mentioned
"the fact that in one of his documents he has to promise not to manipulate or pressure (or take advantage of) his wife says a whole lot."

Yep. That's pretty crappy. She's a young twenty something and she has to make her husband sign something like that. Life is too goddamned short.

Stephanie J. said...

@Someotherpersonaltogether
She's obviously willing to put up with it.

Alan Smithee/gt said...

Steph-

Respect and mere sympathy for the wife went out the window a looooooooooong time ago for a lot of us, myself included. It (the poor wife argument) was the subject of some considerable posting here a while back.

Still, if anything I can very much see your point with the fault of the church/counselor/pastor in encouraging her to stick around; not to mention the clan's unfortunate sociocultural values/mores; views on the institution of marriage, motivations and standards as to the concept of "romantic love"; gender roles.....

Serin = infuriating on so many levels, and not just the obvious ones.

The May 6th note:

(Words underlined are bolded) (All typos theirs)

I, Casey Serin, state that I agree to and AM putting a "FREEZE" on ALL debts, credit cards, credit lines, loans, any type of credit or borrowing starting today for until ALL current debt is paid off AND at least a year after AND if any credit should be taken after that it must be with a clear written plan (action, payments, pay off) and in HARMONIOUS agreement with Galina Serin without pressuring her or manipulating her or taking advantage of her.

May 6th

Casey Serin
(4 names redacted)

Yeah, sounds like the Serin household has been real fun lately. God, I'd be mortified to admit to this kind of thing in public.

I'm betting Galina has spoken to more than just a pastor and marriage counselor. She's laying the groundwork to leave him, and him breaking the contract is the deciding factor.

(One additional note - look at the shitheads' signature. Besides looking like a 2nd grader, he has a fancy schmancy link between the "Y" and the "S".

The little fucker has been practicing his signature.

I had to laugh tho. I'm a published artist, I have my legal signature, and one I developed for signing artwork and the rare autograph. I practiced it. Mine looks awesome, his looks...pathetic.

What a fucking tool he is.)

It's a really sad state that snowflake has morphed into. Even worse than just a month or so ago. I would be on a suicide watch if I was close to him. Fortunately I am not, so if snowflake does himself in, I won't lose any sleep either. As I see it, it's nature's way of cleansing the gene pool.

eek said...

So I negotiated for a “one last chance” to prove to her that I can generate enough money to replace a $52K/year job that I am capable of getting.

He thinks he's capable of getting a $52k/year job? LOL. I haven't seen any tech skills he has that equates to $52k/year.

Casey reminds me of some former friends of mine. These 'friends' think they know how to build websites. "Yeah I know asp/php well." Turns out they don't know shit, because they don't know how to tie asp/php to a database... "I don't know the programming side to php" Uhh...wtf? They do this for a living...

One of these guys has expressed displeasure for not getting a raise. I think he's lucky he's not fired for incompetence. The other is a contractor and extremely lazy. Never makes enough and lives month to month. These guys are around 28-29 years old. The sense of entitlement and laziness disgusts me. I don't blame some of you older folks for thinking that 25 year olds like me are clueless, way too many out there.

someotherpersonaltogether said...

@Stephanie J.

She certainly has been up to this point. Hopefully her family members are busy planting the seeds of truth in her brain and are helping her to figure out that it's better for her to cut her losses now. Casey keeps telling her 'somday'. She needs to listen to some CCR, I think.

Anonymous said...

Typing up the promise note - on it's way

The more I read it, the more I see Galina has lowerd the boom on shithead.

VERY telling...sounds like what is agreed to in an intervention...boy does she know where his priorities are, which is sad...

unbelievable said...

I must be on Casey's mailing list although I don't recall ever getting and e-mail from him until today. Here it is:

Hey,

I know it's been a loooooong time since my last updated to the mailing list. (I like to do monthly updates.)

First, it's last minute notice I know but.... I'm going to do a "Talkcast" in a couple of hours with live call-ins. I will talk about what's been happen' and you can ask me questions:

http://iamfacingforeclosure.com

(Replay will be available. I hope to do these "Foreclosure Friday" talkcast on a regular basis.)

Now the rest of the update...

Basically out of the 8 homes I bought laster year, I sold 2 and got foreclosed on 5 homes. I still have one left in Utah, kinda. It was sold on a wrap-around mortgage. If that gets "un-wrapped" then I may have another foreclosure coming. Hopefully not.

As a result of my open blogging I have been featured by all sorts of media and websites in the last 8-9 months: Sacramento Bee, San Francisco Chronicle, Scotsman Guide, The Economist, ABC Nightline, Suze Orman, Robert Kiyosaki, recently front page of MSN, etc...

The exposure has brought lots of great contacts and opportunities.

For example I've been invited to work as a commission-only account executive for a large capital brokerage firm out of Utah. We do commercial loans and private equity for projects $10 million and up.

We also have a TON of big deals available. From prime developments in Costa Rica to private-sale buildings in San Francisco to billion-dollar casinos in Las Vegas to pools of mortgage notes, to an NBA team and gold mine for sale... you name it!

If you need big money or have big money to place, let me know! (brokers protected)

Fun stuff...

You see, I've been blessed with a lot of other great opportunities... like writing a foreclosure book, speaking opportunities, strategic partnerships, etc. In fact I have too many! I've had a hard time staying focused and unfortunately have been neglecting my responsibility as a husband to provide for stable income.

So recently my wife has had enough of it and called for immediate changes. We negotiated a deal... in fact an ULTIMATUM:

I must generate $1,000 per week EVERY WEEK or I must shut down the blog, give up my computer and cell phone and get a W-2 job with no business for two years!!

Oh crap!!!

Nothing wrong with a job but I got too used to being self-employed and have too many opportunities and deals in the works. I need time to work those. At the same time I need to provide stable income and be responsible. So I have to prove I can do that first...

THOUSAND BUCKS CASH "IN HAND" BY NEXT FRIDAY AND EVERY FRIDAY!!!

I'm asking for your help:

1. Consider advertising your foreclosure or real estate related service/product on my high traffic blog:

http://iamfacingforeclosure.com/advertise

2. Hire me for web development or blog-related consulting or anything real estate related. I will work on contract or hourly rate. Let me know what you have or refer me to somebody who needs any kind of work done.

3. Write about me and link to me on your blog or website. This way I will have more traffic, better search engine ranking, which means more advertising revenue and will allow me to stay online longer.

4. Help me with comment moderation or writing foreclosure or real estate articles. Credit and/or revenue participation is offered..

My goal is to develop a foreclosure help site and help lots and lots of people who are going through the same thing I went through.

From foreclosure to success!

Promise:
I, Casey Serin, promise to earn ("make" redacted") $1000 cash "in hand" by Friday May 25th 11:59 PM.

FURTHERMORE, this goal must be met EVERY FIRDAY by 4:9 PM every week thereafter.

1. Note how that paragraph changes from "I" to "We".
2. So much for regulation in Utah. This is a guy with a FICO of 4??, $170,000 plus in debt and he's allowed to do $10m+ deals?
3. What will Nigel think if he manages to pull off even one deal?

Dan said...

The domain cannot be sold and must stay registered in Casey's ownership indefinitely.

Why the hell would he not sell the domain if he is not allowed to re-open the blog? Supposedly, he could get anywhere from $10,000 to $100,000 for the domain. That would be some "sweet" "passive income".

NoDebtWhatSoEver™ said...

This means all the contents will be pulled down and replaced with a blank page.

Quick, someone mirror the site. Thinks... have mad web skillz myself, will have a try - though distributed backups are in every case better.

And maybe we can sell the content back to Casey after he deletes the site then - after the divorce papers come through - decides to get it back up again (the site, that is) but realizes his own backup is on the floppytop which Galina recently disposed of by driving over it in the vdubs.

dm said...

well, he's got 5 paid text links to the left. Best case scenario is $500/month, but likely less. That would leave him to bring in only another $3500/month.

I doubt that'll happen with his current ads from YSM. Realistically, I can see him hitting maybe $1000 per month or so, if he can keep his *unique* visits up. (Repeat visitors are probably less likely to click ads...) With the spike in traffic from MSN the other day, I wouldn't be surprised if he did a bit better despite the server issues. But then again, we'll never know.

The TalkCast thing is a money making deal. The more people he gets on the line, or gets to listen later on, the more cash he'll make.

He's probably also counting on trying to sell NRU-type crap. They say there's a sucker born every minute, so I'm guessing he could possibly manage that, unfortunately. (BTW, if there is a sucker born every minute, I'm thinking God probably took a week or two off after Casey's exit from the womb...)

As far as consulting goes, at one time (a looong time ago) I had thought about throwing some work his way. But when I asked him why he gave up on web development he said it was because he needed a faster way to meet his financial goals and RE was the best way to do that. I'll dig up the email and see if I can post it here...

Aside 1: how awesome is it that the hater-coined "beg-a-thon" caught on so fast that Snowflake's now using it himself?

Aside 2: I like the replacement of "make $1000" with an emphatic "EARN $1000" -- and in a different (Galina's?) hand.

Casey is an account executive for a UTAH based company?

Oh, for shame Nigel. For shame. Why lead the poor boy on? He's gonna negotiate multi-million dollar deals? You fucking scumbag, stop blowing smoke up his murse!

(I can only image some drug lord in Costa Rica dealing with shithead. Okay, i can - two bullets to the head.)

As I see it, Galina lowered the boom BIG TIME on shithead. The promise smacks of 'yeah, yeah, i've heard all about the great opportunities, I need RESULTS". It also points out Galina and Co know where the shithead's priorities are, and someone showed them the tough love way to intervene. That's straight out of intervention, making someone write it down and the consequences.

He "negotiated" his way into proving he can make $1000 a week. Yup. Casey's been weaseling his way through life, and Galina just stopped him cold. No more bullshit, no more lies, no more daydreams, no more promises. Cash in hand, or I take your shiny toys away.

Is this a marriage, or does she babysit him?

Hey Casey, since it's your last week online, have fun with no laptop, no internet, and no more guru bullshit! It's been nice knwoing ya!

I have some new suspicions:

He took corporate credit and went to Taho and tried to gamble profits, and came back empty handed.

The C-net guy reaching Galina, and he shamed the family by being the world's most hated blogger was the final straw.

Galina has been meeting with a pastor, a marriage counselor and possibly an addiction specialist, probably before the Tahoe trip, most likely after he posted he thought living in a car would be fun. (Notice, the two things he said he needed, his PDA and laptop, are the things she's trheatening to take away?) She' not going to leave him, but she IS taking the reins.

He's beeen harrassing her and duping her, and she may have finally taken a good long look at their current debt, and is now scared shitless. I would be.

I also think that the laptop people were making fun of, the one with the disk drive, is *hers*. I could just see him taking it over, because his shit the bed, which he'd been complaining about, because "You don't need it for school anymore". Nice way to be a selfish prick, Casey. Why else would it be mentioned in your promise, to not BORROW other's computers? Hmmm?

You've been talking the talk, shithead, now Galina has called your hand and demanding you walk the walk. Begging on your e-mail list ain't gonna cut it, and you fucked your blog with CNet.

Good luck there, Li' Buddy! You are SO fucked, and you deserve every bit of it! Forget the banks, the DA and the Fed, your personal life is now under Galina's firm control.

I hope she nags you to death, and never lays you again.

lawnmower man said...

As I said above: Galina had better be ready to have her bluff called.

Casey won't make $1000. And he won't give up IAFF and his other entrepreneurial trappings. And then what?

Either she folds, or he's out.

Casey Fannnnn said...

Meee times a mady!

Not fully up to speed here, but it appears things are hoppin in CaseyLand®™. There are way too many Duane-related posts, which I pretended to read while leaning on F5. A number of simultaneous, time-sucking, looser™ 1099 jobs will prevent me from creating a timely Casey Dance Remix of his imminent putzcast™. Maybe another rockin teen haterz™ DJ wif a backwards baseball cap and a laptop runnin FROOTY LUPES can step up to the plate and entertain us with a video and/or audio tekno-pastiche.

Meanwhile, in New Jersey...

@ lawnmower

Pretty much.

That's what is unspoken, is if he fails to meet the consequences. I told ya, he's near the "fuck it" point, he may just choose to live in the Vdub.

Thus the **5** other signatures. This isn't between Casey and Galina anymore, now there are people on HER side.

Casey doesn't know what's about to hit him. I'd feel sorry for him, but part of me, a small piece, still feels some humanity for Galina.

She still might be worth saving. He's not.

CHJTS said...

I just snorted soda out of my nose and all over my computer screen when I read those contracts.


This is by far the FUNNIEST DAMN THING I HAVE EVER SEEN FROM SNOWFLAKE.


This is even funnier than nigels attempt at Playing Greenspan.

PSS I would like to buy a name in Steph J's book.

Arthur Wankspittle said...

Supposedly, he could get anywhere from $10,000 to $100,000 for the domain.
I've already said it, but therefore, so could a creditor. I don't know what legal steps the creditor would need to take but if IAFF has some value I think there is an outside chance it could be "confiscated" (or whatever the correct term is ) and sold to pay off a debt.

Stephanie J. said...

@Kevin
Nice guilt-tactics. It might have worked if I hadn't been weaned on guilt as a child. I'm not Galina; therefore I'm not easily manipulated.

Besides; my books tend to have character names like Garthrok and Naythine--just made-up names. Kevin would be a sore thumb. We can't have that, can we?

I *was* thinking of a 'code' dedication to the lot of you to put in my next book. Haven't figured it out yet.

lurker said...

Unfortunately the third way out is what he may take.

He will not make his thousand (or he will fake making it)

He will not get a job.

Galina did not put any consequences to not getting a job so the process starts over.

Anonymous said...

These latest comments are too sympathetic towards Galina. Casey and Galina are both relatively young, Galina is sort of cute and Casey is sort of a smooth talker. I believe they could both get some kind of customer service job for slightly more than CA minimum wage.

Both working 40 hours for $9/hr would total $720 / week gross. Assume 50 weeks of work a year, and that equals $36000 for the two- or rather almost exactly the Sacramento, CA per capita income (Wikipedia)

Casey's "Recommended" $100 text ads just dropped from 5 to 1 (and they are now numbered...let's see...we have...1, one text ad...ah, ah, ah). Who else thinks that he put up 4 "dummy" ads to make people think that his blog monetization was really taking off?

@ Stephanie J

You can always call the bad guys "Haterz™"

Stephanie J. said...

Considering his attitude towards being married in a recent (and deleted) post... maybe he is planning to break the contract, so Galina can break it off; and the bonus is; she'll be the bad guy!

As I see it, snowflake could have easily made $1k per week if he didn't return the webcam by filming the likes of "Galina does Dallas" or "Muff Diving for the G Spot".

CHJTS said...

DATE: May 18, The year of our Lord 200 (and) 7.

Intent: to prove I can generate a STABLE erection to replace Nigels satisfying of my wife and/or $52k/yr job.

This money cannot be money from a sweet jambajuice cashback deal or anything similiar such as:
1. a fundraiser for a penny a bounce on the blue ball.
2. a dollar a day for every day I can go without wearing the same blue shirt.
3. 5 dollars a day for each and every day I can go without nigels nose hairs tickling my belly button.
4. 500 dollars a week that I admit I a complete and utter failure in every aspect of my life and marriage.

PROMISE: I, snowflake (aka casey serin, aka buttflakes boy toy), promise to steal (redacted), Con (redacted), embezzle (redacted), FINE...earn (now I sound like a w-2 looser), $1,000 cash "in hand" by Friday May 25th, at 11:69 PM. "In hand" is be defined as physically in hand and on the dining room table. Additionaly you must wash Nigels DNA off of your hand before handling the cash "in hand".

CONSEQUENCES:

If I fail to blow nigel 1,000 times (redacted), blow nigel on the kitchen table (redacted), under the kitchen table (redacted), steal-con-embezzle (redacted) earn 1000 "dna in hand" as outlined above then I will do the following within 2 hours of being a failure on top of already being a failure:

1. Shut down IAFF.Com at my convenience (redacted), immedietly and permanently (like the I heart Nigel tattoo I have on my ass), never to have my sphincter reopened and violated by Nigel again. This means nigel will no longer use the pull out method and the pants pull down method will no longer be done. The website will be replaced with a blank page much resembling the look on Caseys face when looking at a job application or anything that requires thought or work.

The domain cannot be sold and must stay registered in caseys ownership indefinetly. (sweet--I can put it in a trust and do an assignment of beneficial interest and retain 1% ownership and have someone else listed as the beneficiary and get some sweet jamba cash back--win-win--dont tell Galina).

Casey may not start a new blog with similar themes and content.

2. Give up my labtop cellphone and promise not to look at indonesian midget porn again unless at the public library.

I may not buy a new labtop, any kind of computer or any kind of phone for 2 years (why would I buy those things when I already have them?)

Any emails, cybering, and or communication with nigel cannot be labeled as business to try and hide your brokerback mountain relationship with him.

I may get a new number for personal use only and I may have phone sex with nigel only when Galina wont put out because I am an inept girly man and when she is with me she feels like a lesbian since I have a uterus.

3. Get a full time w-2 looser job based on my skills. (reality of this is collecting change on a freeway on ramp). I will start looking for a job immediately and will do everything I can to get the highest paying job available at mcdonalds that there is since that is all I am actually qualified for. I will stay at the job for a minimum of 2 years and get promoted to head french fry manager. The only side business I am allowed to do in this time is to upsell people to a chicken ceaswer side salad.

NOTES:--Also, I must adhere strictly to the May 6th agreement of no more debt or consequences will apply as follows:

1. I will not be allowed to bounce on my blue ball for 5 minutes.

Infraction 2: I will not be allowed to bounce on my blue ball while in the corner for a time out.

Infraction 3: I will not be able to read nigel a bedtime story on the phone for 3 days.

Infraction 4: Galina's brother will kick me in the balls and shove a live cattle prod up my ass.

Infraction 5: My sphincter will be cauterized thus permanently banning me from no nigel ass back @ the closing.

Infraction 6: Galina will leave me and I will be free to have a real begathon.

Also, I cannot talk about Galina, her involvement in the scamming including but not limited too...holding title and quitclaim deeding it to me, knowing full well how the money was being spent from the cashback on the properties, attending the real estate seminars with me, enabling me to be a douchebag, being listed in the corporation as a fiduciary of the corporations and also doing day to day business with the properties.

Signed.

Snowflake ..witnesses (redacted)

I bet he's a Promise Keeper™

baa said...

did anybody else notice that its 1000/wk in cash? if - and i realize this is a HUGE if - he were paying proper income taxes, he would need to be grossing somewhere in the mid to high 70k range to take home that kind of scratch.

i think galina is just looking for a way out. hope she likes california's community property laws.

TV Rots Your Brain said...

what is with this clause?!?!
"Cannot be gambling"

Casey cannot be seriously considering (much less attempting) gambling as a way to get out of the hole he's dug can he?

Oh and if you buy any kind of food and don't eat it (even if it's as modestly priced as Top Ramen or better generic ramen) that's the antithesis of frugal.

My thoughts too. Give him a win-win way out.

Orson Buggy said...

Let's see... IIRC, according to a phone conversation he had with someone from CashCall, Snowflake already makes $3,000 a month, so he just needs to come up with 1K more a month.

But on the other hand, didn't he say that he could come up with $8,000 a month with no problem?

I don't see that there is a problem.

Wait! Are you folks thinking that Snowflake might have slightly overestimated his earning ability?

But, wouldn't that be like saying Casey tells lies?

You try typing this stuff with a straight face. It cannot be done.

For some reason, Snowflake's mass mail didn't have his usual mail signature. Here it is for those who feel they missed out.
