Today doesn't exist. No, really, it was a figment of my imagination. Or perhaps a nightmare. And I'll wake up sometime tomorrow, only it will be today, because today didn't happen.

Don't ask, just chalk it up to school wank.

To RP group, sorry for leaving anything hanging as it's been a rough weekend. Anything I owe will get done tomorrow... (which will be today far as I'm concerned)

Kit, got the package. Thank you, all crack manga is greatly appreciated.

Domino, haven't yet got a chance to play. Seems soon as I wanted to, school decides to be a royal bitch.

Speaking of school, here's another to the list of utterly idiotic things they have us do. We can choose our own research topic. Good. But then they tell us how we can and can't research. Example, for the upcoming rough draft, I can't use any online source outside of the school library database, and there, they have to be "peer reviewed" articles. You get two guesses how many results I got typing in the word "yaoi", and the first one doesn't count. I explained that to my 'instructor' and ended it with, "What do I do in a situation like that?" In other words, I dumped it in her lap. Seriously, what am I supposed to do when she cuts off all available means of research? That route might work for other subjects, but for this? And mind you, I only picked it because of her suggestion. Sheesh.

I don't want to think about my critical thinking instructor. I'll just say retentive and leave it at that.

(2:44 pm PT) - February, please go away
[link] - (frustrated)

And to top off what's fast becoming a really shitty month, I can't find the gift certificate Mina gave me, despite knowing I put it away for safe keeping.

February... leave. Now.

I updated firefox to 1.5. I... am not happy. My favourite theme is no longer compatible, plus the css rendering has been altered somewhat, because my index page on Y.org is warped, even though it shows fine on an earlier gecko engine. This also makes using HTMLkit useless, since the preview option is using the older gecko, so I'm not seeing a correct firefox preview.

This all leads to one resounding and painful conclusion: I need dreamweaver.

Don't misunderstand, I usually type all my code by hand. But I need an editor that let's me preview the code so I can see where the browsers fuck up said code. And it has to preview the current browsers/browser engines.

But from my understanding DW is not only commercial, it's not cheap.

So... anyone got a slightly less than legit and cheap/free copy?

(2:05 am PT) - I'm gonna go bake my brain now, thanks.
[link] - (frustrated)

I'll get to other replies later. I just had to let it be known before I crash.

I like each and every BTer over at Blue Tumbleweeds. I really do. That being said, I'm afraid inflicting that damn crackish song, Dragostea din tei, onto my brain just once, and forever lodging it there, is a sin. Sorry, I'll have to cast you all down to the seventh level, where I am.

Maybe then I can burn that friggin' song out my head.

Dammit, make it stop.

Also to other BTers, I'm working on something towards a layout. Note that's nowhere near the final decided layout. It's still pretty much in the alpha stage right now, (if even that far).

(11:11 pm PT) - Why mirc, that's what I want to know
[link] - (frustrated)

Anyone who's every used mirc, or better, leached files off it, please be a saint and show me how. I want stuff off the nakama channel, but verily I am an ignoramus, as well as a coward. I'd rather join someone in a channel and let them walk me through it before trying.

Yes, coward. I already said so.

If you can walk me through, give me a date, time, network, and channel. I know enough on how to get there, then that's pretty much it.

(10:11 am PT) - Well the day started off okay...
[link] - (frustrated)

I just love how people innocently push their religious beliefs off onto others in the most minute of ways. If you're wondering, it's because of the following review I found on a Furuba fic at mm.org.
it was sad, but suicide gets you to hell though, so Tohru won't be with her mom ;_;
Um, es-squeeze me? First off, that's not how all religions think. (I'm not confident in my knowledge at this point to commit to saying it's mainly a Christian view, though that's the feeling I have.) Second, just--what the hell? What was the point to the comment at all? As the story went, she tried to kill herself. People in that state are usually too far gone to think about such things or even care. They feel lacking in a support system, and if the only person who they ever could depend on is gone, then it's only natural that they'd want to "be" with them. This is more or less depicted in the fic itself. This reviewer strikes me as the type who'd say something equally callous at the victim's funeral. Dear fates, just... argh. It's pointless and I shouldn't be ranting, but when faced with such painfully skewed logic, my brain throbs. Why. What is the reason to this? I just don't understand the necessity for this comment.

... my poor brain.

(6:34 am PT) - ::sigh::
[link] - (frustrated)

I'm not dead. But someone please tell the mother unit that if I'm trying to make gifts for my friends, kindly don't go advertising what I can do and get me "orders." If I want orders, I'll get them myself. And I prefer they be of things I'm already making, not something I had no intention of doing.

And that is why evreyone's gift will be late, and why I haven't posted in three freakin' days. And was it worth it? Hell no.

Kit, if you still need that reg cleaner, I'll look around today.

Now that the orders are done, maybe I can go back to doing what I'd planned to do.

(7:02 am PT) - test
[link] - (frustrated)

Ignore, this is a test to see if LJ will upate the feed, and for me to wonder why they won't update the newfic feed at Y.net, even though the damn thing is a validated rss 2.0 feed. ::seethes::

And I woke up with a bad kink in the neck. Obviously it's going to be one of those days...

(12:37 pm PT) - Religious or cowardice?
[link] - (frustrated)

I just discovered something about myself a minute ago.

Nothing will put me off a writer faster than when they say they will, (or more than likely), won't write a particular kind of fic for "religious reasons."

To me, this smacks of a kind of cowardice. Or brainwashing, which is worse.

If you think the god/dess of your following is going to smite you down to the 9 levels or hell, (or whatever punishment you think is befitting), for writing a fictional piece of work, tell me which religion you're in so I know the deity not to bother with. I don't think I can handle anyone, be they mortal or other, who is so hardcore anal retentive that creating fake stories deserves divine punishment.

It's fiction. Never happened, probably never will happen, and it's not going to make too much of a dent on the world unless everyone becomes a Puritan and everything remotely enjoyable is outlawed.

Because if it's religion that writers have to be worried about, people like Stephen King have a one-way ticket, I suppose. All us slash/yaoi writers? Crispifried, I guess.

Use religion to base moral judgements on in the way one conducts their day-to-day lives. Use it to decide if stealing is wrong or if the circumstances warrant it. Use it to weigh the difference between self-defense and murder.

Do not hide behind it. I will never have any respect for an individual who does this.

And I'm not talking about any one religion. I'm covering them all, because I see this kind of behavior happen far too often, and religion, which should be a spiritual guide, is used as a shield, or worse, a weapon.

And if religion dictates you won't write a certain type of story, you shouldn't write any story.

(10:22 am PT) - going, going, almost gone.
[link] - (frustrated)

Today is the last day you can easily get in contact with me. If you need me for something, email me. Don't know my email addy? Use this, works just the same.

When I get back, I'm diving head first into NaNoWriMo, so it may be hard to catch me in November up until the novel's complete.

If anyone wants me to bring something you know I have to the con, let me know. Also, if you want to find me, I'll post my volunteer schedule (though since I'll be working, probably won't be able to talk to much). I'll also wear both of the following shirts at some point, so you should be able to spot me. (thumbnails link to larger image)

(11:30 am PT) - So despising IE now
[link] - (frustrated)

I recently installed a security patch for Firefox, but now it refuses to open, forcing me to go back to IE6.

This is nearly as bad as when I had to use dail-up for a time. You may scoff, but it's true.

I never thought the day would come, but alas, I simply hate IE now.

Wednesday, August 25, 2004



(12:32 pm PT) - update
[link] - (frustrated)

So the first place didn't fall through after all. And once we move, we're going to look into some of the many homebuying programs available. I know HUD has one, so I'm going to look into their SF location. The next move after this I want to be the last.

Course why wait? Nothing hurts looking for information now.

And the matriarch is guaranteeing I'm still con-bound, so I guess I feel somewhat better. I'm not trying to feel too great about things, because I don't want to have another bubble burst on me.

Oh yes, and that lovely Crimson Army has paid a visit, doing double time march, no less.

Right now I'm chanting to myself that suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. Seems to be working. I need to say homicide is, too.

(11:26 am PT) - ::sigh::
[link] - (frustrated)

I just checked. I can access FIRE HOUSE on my brother's comp just fine. But I try it from my own, nothing. It's apparently just me, but I don't know what or why. I've just of my firewall, and lowered the security on IE to the lowest, but still nothing. I sent a post through my brother's comp, so hopefully they'll email me back and maybe I can figure out what's wrong. Otherwise I'll have to use his comp to make an order.

Does anyone have any clue why this could be happening?

(12:31 pm PT) - random babble/replies
[link] - (frustrated)

I have what looks to be three votes for Xadult candy, one for body care, one for the afghans, and one for Xadult bath/body products.

Then my mother just gave me a simple question.

"Why not do it all?"

Well obviously I'll have to start small, so yes, I'll focus on the candy aspect. So the next step is to buy the molds, make some, and take pictures. From there we have to make a site. I think I can use paypal far as payment options go, though if anyone knows of a different service, please do tell.

So that's the plan. However, I may have to wait on the molds. I've been getting a lot of bills this month that I was not expecting.

This is me, not being a happy camper.

One of those bills is really wrong, simply because of how it played out. I think I mentioned my "friend" giving me her neurontin, since she said she didn't want to use it. Well what I didn't know, and was not made aware of until too late, was that she'd told the mother-unit that she "hopes I get some money out of this." She said it in a joking manner, which confused the mother-unit. M-unit in turn didn't take her seriously.

Now the night she actually brings the pills over, she doesn't mention me paying for them. She just hands them over. I didn't hear about the "joke", as M-unit didn't think she meant it. The time to have brought it up if she wanted me to pay for it should have been when she brought them over, giving me a chance to decide if I want to pay that much or not (I wouldn't have). But no, she says nothing and goes on her merry way.

Monday she drops by, after I've used several pills, and then tells me she expects $25, as that's what she had to pay to get them.

Does anyone else see what's wrong with this whole scheme?

Had I'd know, I would have told her to keep the damn pills. I know with a little effort on my part, I could have gotten them with a legal precription for free.

Other bills not expected include new bra. These boobs aren't medium handfuls, and require support. That costs, so we're looking at 20+ there. Plus shipping knocks it to somewhere in the 25+ area.

Add to that stuff I ordered back in April/May, that was not shipped in a timely manner, so I'm still getting random charges. (I had the money then. But with the way it's going...)

I'm going to give it a week, then check my finances again. Maybe things will have settled down, and I'll know what I'm working with so I can hopefully buy the candy molds. (That's not even including things like supplies, packing, and shipping.)

::sigh:: Why does it seem that in order to make money, you already have to have it?

(8:56 am PT) - Argh, now it won't get out of my head...
[link] - (frustrated)

Very quickly, does anyone have either an mp3 or at least title of the song played at the end of Wolf's Rain 25?

I hate when a good song gets stuck in my head.

Randomly, I ♥ Kit, who introduced me to DC++, and now I can steal all the anime I want find those hard to get fansubs.

Don't look at me like that, I wind up buying the DVDs anyway.

(7:44 am PT) - breathe. calm. do not kill. breathe. calm. do not kill.
[link] - (frustrated)

Sometimes I get these dry spells. That's usually when there's nothing to talk about, so I forget to post. I suppose those are the days I'm either okay, or just too out of it to post.

There's still not much to say, but I figured I may as well.

I do know that the sooner we get out of here, the better. Or else I'm going to get some mushrooms I read about and pass them out to the residents.

If they choose to eat them, well, I can't be held accountable for the consequences.

I feel like plotting a murder. Just for plotting's sake, not to actually kill anyone. Or maybe I'll plot it for a fic. I've never tried a good one before.

What I really need a break from the family, though. It seems they feel they can take their sweet time when it comes to paying me back. So it's my brother's birthday month. Um, yes, I was going to get him a gift, but he owes me $135. Why does the mother unit come in asking me to give him a break? Nobody gave me a break last month.

I'm not a bank, and even if I was, they don't give breaks either.

Okay, I'm officially in a "Mood," and it's directed at them.

I wish they'd go away, or else I could go away.

And I invited them to go to the con, but I'm fairly certain at this point that they're not going. Good. Unfortunately, this means I'm paying for the room by myself. Bummer. Oh well, nothing to do about it now, so long as I can get out of here and away from them for a few.

It's a lot of little things they think I shouldn't get annoyed at. But I do. I love how they feel I should be more like them. I'm not. I'm me, and I'm getting ticked with each passing day.

Break. Definitely need a break.

But of course being in this hellhole doesn't help, where the average collective IQ probably doesn't break the 100 mark, and "philosophy" is considered a big word.

And this is why I know that whatever Deity is responsible has a sense of humor. A very sadistic one.

I guess that's enough bitching and whining for one day. I go now to slap myself for it, because I still hate when I do it.

I just have to let it out sometimes.

(11:10 am PT) - Bad days are norm
[link] - (frustrated)

You know you're not going to have a good day when the first thing of importance you come across is this:

http://www.giveneyestosee.com/say-no-to-cafepress/

I'm usually not one for jumping on bandwagons, but TOS are serious little traps. Unfortunately, I didn't read over this as well as I should have when I got the initial email about it from Cafepress themselves. Why should I? None of this was mentioned.

So yes, I have a permanent link to this page, and I'm looking into alternative services myself.

And in case anyone is still questioning or thinks I'm jumping the gun, the actual member agreement, which will go into effect in July, can be found at:
http://www.cafepress.com/cp/info/help/memberagreement.aspx

Now someone says they have nonexclusive rights so they can put it on your own products, yadda yadda yadda. Personally, even if they don't try taking your images to make themselves a dollar without telling you (which in effect, they could), the new fees are enough to send me packing.

And as said here by darthneko on this same date, 7:44 am, I too am so not comfortable with just handing out my ss #.

Goodbye, Cafepress. The Man obviously got to you as well.

Short story, life sucks. Only slightly longer story, people have asses on shoulder. Mom's bf put a hole in the wall for reasons I can't get into right now, but trust me, it doesn't warrant violence on our walls.

(8:56 am PT) - Just to note
[link] - (frustrated)

To anyone who reads this blournal for whatever reason, some advice. If you should ever reproduce/procreate, do yourself, and your child, a favour.

HOME SCHOOLING

It's either that, or send them to a public school and have the government decide what they should and shouldn't learn.

This advice isn't just for (the more perceptive) Americans, but for the whole world.

I'm sorry, but at this point, no government can be trusted.

A government is simply a collection of little dictators from small regions working as a collective.

(9:43 am PT) - the red infantry is winning, yet retreating
[link] - (frustrated)

Some people need drugs. Not the illegal stuff that blows your mind (though some people do need that, too), but presciption, control your MPD because you are a fucking nutcase drugs. They need them, they should be on them, forever. No ifs, ands, or buts... or butts.

And some people, they need a blunt shoved WAY up their ass.

Just some people, mind you.

And guess what? I have a rubber glove and lotion. For those people, I'd be more than happy to help.

A good fisting doesn't hurt either, at least not me.

Let the screaming commence.

My area is experiencing intermittant power outages. This unfortunately is endangering my comp. So far I've been lucky. But I'm not going to push it. So I won't be around until I know the power's stable.

As if I don't have enough to worry about.

(10:03 am PT) - Argh, frustration
[link] - (frustrated)

Nothing sucks like finding something you like is so obscure you can't even find reference to it on the net. In this case, it's a book. "The meadows of the damned and other poems" by David W. Bosen. I know it exists. I had a physical copy in my hand. I can go back to the library right now and check it out. But can I find any mention of the book or the author in search engines? Nooooo...

So, I will be going to the library, and I'll probably post my all time favourite piece here.

Incidently, the poem I'm looking for by Mr. Bosen is titled, "Satan."
