    Those conspiracy theories about Sandy Hook are offensive. Those people are no better than the Westboro church.

    Coming back from the store, dropping a bag of groceries on the ground, breaking something and having to go right back to the store to buy it again. Dammit.

    I did this with three bottles of wine. Hate when that happens.

    The voice acting for Batman in The Dark Knight Returns is appalling.

    I have a mouse in my house. Seen em' twice & just had almost experienced this thing shooting up the leg of my sweats. Had a ziploc of vitamins that my mom gave me to try & it chewed the bag & took the majority of them. This thing must be huge! Anyway, the trap is finally set & I'm having a few beverages while waiting for a 'SNAP' ...and the Federer/Tsonga match.

    Fucking mouse.

    I was hanging out with a friend of mine tonight who I used to work with and found out that a former co-worker of mine died of cancer a few weeks ago. She was only 25.

    I just can't even wrap my mind about that. She was a super sweet person. I don't think she had ever had an unkind word to say about anyone. Apparently she was diagnosed last summer and died within six months. 25 is way, way too young to die.

    Anyway, it wasn't like I was particularly close with her or anything, but it was still really sad. Apparently a bunch of people from my old work really went out of their way to spend a lot of time with her in the last months. My friend was saying that her biggest fear was to die alone and they really went out of their way to make sure that she didn't. That is awesome. But, man. That just shocked and saddened me greatly.

    It's the first part of the sentence that pisses you off, right? Right?

    No, both things are bad. One being massively bad doesn't mean the other one stops being bad.

    so i went on a date today, and all was going well, until her and i started talking about our families. she couldn't grasp that i have a sister 11 years younger than i, but i do not know my father. "she is adopted" i tell her. i proceed to tell this woman how proud i am of her (head of her class, on the student council, straight A's, general overachiever shit) when she says, and i quote....

    "but she's adopted though, right? shes not REALLY your sister"

    this is how i felt: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wOaROFFhpL4

    I was working briefly for a moving company and we were hauling a heavy dresser into this rich woman's house. We decided to pull out the drawers to make the thing lighter and asked where we should put them, to which her reply was:
    "Oh, you can put them in my daughter's room. Well, she's not REALLY my daughter, she's my step-daughter."
    Blew me away, all I could think was "You... you had to clarify that to the MOVERS?! You must really love your not-daughter."

    Oh, boy. The hot water heater for my apartment building broke. "No time frame" on when it will be fixed, according to the letter they taped to my door. I took a lukewarm shower today and the only reason it wasn't freezing was probably because I didn't jump in a shower until mid-morning. But tomorrow, when I'm jumping in a shower at four in the morning? That is going to be coooooold.

    The new management at the apartment complex.

    Last month a letter was sent out to all residents reminding them to pick up a new parking permit sticker for their vehicles. The letter stated that the towing company they've hired will boot or tow vehicles that either have expired registration tags, are broken down or have a flat tire. The purpose of this is to clean up the parking lots. Nowhere in the letter does it say vehicles would be booted or towed because of permit stickers. Today, I go outside to leave only to discover that my back driver's side tire has a fucking boot on it and a note attached saying that my vehicle has been booted because I do not have a parking permit sticker. I do have a sticker, I just have chosen not to permanently attach it to my wind shield because it's a huge ass, bright orange sticker. The sticker must have fallen on the floor, so when the tow company was inspecting all vehicles this morning, they must not have seen it. So now I'm waiting on them to remove the boot because they received "miscommunication" from the leasing office. I keep my vehicle in working order and pay my rent on time every month, so why don't you go after the residents who don't comply by lease rules, okay?

    Between this and what happened right after Christmas, in which I was without power for nearly a week and nobody from the leasing office toured the complex to check in on residents, I am fed up with this place.

    Yeah, you've got to get out of there, Orestes (when you can). That sounds awful.

    I also refuse to put the parking sticker in my window because I don't want to have to look at it all the time. My OCD would drive me insane. Fortunately, my place isn't really strict about it.

    So...my hot water is back but now I'm waiting for a maintenance person to come by and fix the leak on my toilet. I think it might actually be leaking from two different places, too. They're supposed to be here by 5 and it's 4:13 now. Getting nervous.

    Day 2 of quitting smoking. I'm thinking of maybe just not leaving my room today.

    ^^That's rough, dude. Hang in there.

    My complaint is going to sound so incredibly petty compared to that (actually, it would have, anyway), but...

    Yeah, I'm using that. I don't know. I think I'm probably scraping them on things.

    The worse thing is that I suck at putting nail polish on. I've been trying for years. It always looks like crap. I've had a few different friends explain it to me, give me tips, etc. I've looked up Youtube videos, I'd read stuff on the internets, I just can't get it right.

    Oh, well. I'm the only one that sees it. For now, at least.

    If nail polish is too hard, then try these.

    ^^I've seen those! I'll have to try them sometime. At some point I really want to figure out how to do this right. But in the meantime those would be helpful. Thanks for the heads up.
