I finally installed a Firefox persona.
Feb 13: My mom called yesterday after work and said she missed two buses trying to get a Subway sandwich so she was in a bad mood. She said she was going to the bar before coming home and would be home with dinner in about an hour. Fast forward to past 2 in the morning and I’m trying to sleep when I hear someone screaming. Naturally I think it is the ignorant neighbors upstairs who never stop yelling/stomping around and being the noisy people they are. But no, I realize it’s not when one thing yelled is “Megan”. OMG that damn bitch has done it again. I remember last year she came home so drunk she couldn’t get her key in the door and I had to get up again to let her in, and pick up everything she had dumped outside. This time I found her outside on the floor of the porch herself. All she was doing was yelling and saying the same thing over again “I can’t get up.” Now I thought it could be something serious, like she slipped and fell. But no, it’s only that she couldn’t feel her feet (according to her). Oh gee, I wonder what that could be like, not being able to feel parts of your body… Mom, do you know why you can’t feel your feet? IT’S COLD OUT! Just get inside, problem solved. It’s probably well below 30 out, and she just walked up from the bar, and is drunk no less, that’s why she can’t feel her fucking feet! So I get to go outside in my pajamas and struggle with helping a drunk stand up (not an easy task) and eventually get her in the door. All the bitch keeps saying is “I can’t feel my feet” and yelling. Drunks usually come with a few pre-programmed phrases, they’re like those dolls you pull the string and they repeat the same thing over and over again. Then she tripped over her (mostly) alchie bottles on the way to the couch and and was last seen laying there propped up against the couch still saying she couldn’t feel her feet. It would help if she’d taking her effing shoes off and get her feet out of the damp socks. It would certainly help more than just sitting their and whining about it. But no. And I’m certainly not going to make the attempt. Let this be a lesson to her about the evils of drinking (though if she hasn’t learned it by now she never well). I wont be held responsible either if her toes fall off. And if she ever does this again I’m leaving her outside. But for today I get to deal with this, at… 3 in the morning now. And I’ve had to lock that cat in the room with me so drunky Godzilla doesn’t crush her.
Well, I did end up having to help her after she woke up and started screaming again. This time it was about her back and knee. Well after falling down and then laying on the floor between the coffee table and couch, of course it would be hurting. So I had to get her shoes and socks off and try to help her up, but she didn’t want to help herself. She just kept yelling about it hurting (stupid shit like “owie,” “my backy,” and “meowie”) and that she could do it. If she had put as much effort into getting up as she did complaining about it she would have gotten up a lot sooner. It took forever to get her up, then she hobbled to the bathroom which took forever, then took forever getting undressed, then finally went back to the couch and started crying. So I had to put up with that crap, and finally with her slobbering all over me. I hate drunk people! And I hate it when they cling to me and pet me, and then cry on me. Bleh. I can’t stand to be touched but I had to put up with her crushing me for a while (my ribs hurt and I had trouble breathing because of it, then when I finally got away there were indents from my pajamas all over my arms and sides) before I eventually got her to go to sleep. I think that was around 5 AM, and then I got to go to bed again after 6:30. Now her knees are bruised and swollen because of that, and she’s talking about calling off tomorrow.
This morning I heard my cat getting into stuff and when I finally got up to see what the idiot was doing I found her digging under some stuff. It crossed my mind that it could be a mouse, but I thought it was probably a centipede so I dragged her away and started lifting some of it up to see what was underneath. That’s when a little grey mouse went zooming out from under it and around the corner towards the stove. Yes I screamed, several times too. I like mice, mice are cute, but only when they’re in cages, not when they’re running around your home. After I got it together I had to go after that cat who was in pursuit of her new toy. I didn’t know mice could climb, but he scaled the blanket hanging over the door in the kitchen, then dropped back down and finally went back behind the stove again. It looked like he had something either in his mouth or stuck to him. Allie’s been hunting that mouse for almost two years, and this is the first time I’ve seen him come out. He had gone all over the place in here too. I hope he stays behind the stove now.
I’m sick of Valentines day. Egg Cave is has a Valentine egg, which took me 20 (then 100 more when I had to restart Firefox) tries to find, but there’s a 10 egg viewing limit so I have to wait until tomorrow and hopefully it’ll still be there. Then Dragon Cave has two Valentines eggs, which are impossible to get. Half the time the site doesn’t even load, then by the time it does all the eggs are gone. I’ve never been able to get any egg when they were released so I don’t think I’ll be able to get either of these. There should be a one egg limit for both instead of two, so the greedy people can’t stock up on them while the rest of us don’t get anything. I don’t see why some many idiots on that site think this is fun. How is it fun to sit at a computer for hours at a time, all day long trying to get a couple virtual eggs? It’s not fun, it’s frustrating and painful, and very bad for you. Fighting over 1000 people for 3 eggs? What BS. Edit: After almost 400 eggs, I just found out I got two of this years Val eggs when I checked my scroll. Still no ’09s.
It’s going to be so noisy here soon. Like it’s not enough already. But they’re tearing down the McDonalds and Jiffy Lube in the back and building a bigger McD. The McDonalds execs are idiots. The McDonalds there gets busy, but there’s no way we need a new or bigger one. Not only are we losing our McDonalds for 6+ months, we get to listen to construction starting at the end of this month. It is literally right behind us. Then the street the runs along side us, the one McDonalds is on, it’s going to be getting teared up. I don’t know what’s with all the stupid fucks making these decisions, but they’re going to be doing work on it for miles back. So we also get to hear that, and my mom will be having trouble getting to work since it’s a bus line. It’s a very busy street, I don’t know what people are going to do. It’s the main road to downtown. I hope McD doesn’t close down for a few weeks more. They’ve got Penguins of Madagascar toys. I love that show so I’m going to try to get my mom to get herself a Happy Meal so I can get some.
Yay, we got it early! I’m still not happy if Firebenders can’t “make their own” fire.
I haven’t updated this with a real blog entry in a while. Just haven’t felt like it. Mostly I’ve been watching anime and online at either Global PokédeX Plus or Dragon Cave. I finally got a Ditto on GPX (still looking for Lugia,
Winter Vulpix, Mew, and Shaymin) and a vampire dragon on Dragon Cave. Now I’m trying to hatch a sunrise dragon. Edit 1/26: Finally got a Winter Vulpix on my fifth try. Edit 1/27: Mwahaha! Shaymin you are mine!
With anime I’ve mainly been sticking to a few specific ones, but that changed with the new season of anime. Those are Bleach, Prince of Tennis, Wallflower (aka Perfect Girl Evolution, aka Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge), Ouran, Nodame Cantabile, and Itazura na Kiss. Awesome, awesome, awesome, good, okay, …okay. I finally got caught up with Bleach probably about a month ago, and now I just love love love it. I really want to give it an 8 just for how likable and how much fun it is. But everytime I get the urge I have to remind myself of all the times it made me want bash my head against the wall. It’s a 7 anime. Prince of Tennis is still really good, but I’ve been on a break from it because they’re at a tournament and Ryoma’s up and it’s making me nervous. I loved Perfect Girl Evolution (which is known by three names, my preference being The Wallflower because it’s short and easy to remember), and it went on to become my fastest anime, I finished at three days. I was surprised at how quickly I connected with it, and how quickly it went. Ouran was good, and it’s in second place at 7 days, although I technically saw the first episode (several times) almost a year ago. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to do that again, I just can’t watch that many episodes at once, especially of the same anime (except near the end for Bleach, I was at about 20 a day). Nodame is okay, and it doesn’t grate on me as much as Itazura does. I was hoping to get caught up on all the Nodame Cantabile series before the last one came out, but that was an unrealistic dream.
For the winter season I added Durarara!!, Ookamikakushi, and Dance in the Vampire Bund. I may start watching Hanamaru Youchien, but I’m not sure yet. I was so disappointed Kuroshitsuji 2 wasn’t going to start airing this month like some idiot on MAL said it would, but hopefully it’ll start in the spring. I like Durarara, enough for me to give it an 8 on the second ep, which is something I never do. I liked it so much it gave me a renewed interest in Baccano, which I am also finding myself liking. Ookamikakushi… well, it’s my own fault because I could tell what it was going to be like, so now I’m just hoping it’ll get better. The characters are so friggin annoying. Vampire Bund had one of the most original first eps I’ve ever seen, but the second wasn’t as good. I also knew what I was getting myself into there, but I’m weak and stupid. I’ve been downloading a ton of anime, so I’m going to be taking a break from the internet for a few days again so I watch it.
After several months I finally got out again, and to The Cheesecake Factory no less. Unfortunately it was Martin Luther King Jr Day, which is an official holiday here, so a ton of people and brats had off. We got there less than a half an hour after they opened and it was already packed. We were seated next to these “rich” women and one of them had thrown her big coat over the divider between the booths, so it was practically in my seat. I wanted to throw mine over so it would hit them on the head. People are so rude and obnoxious, they really have no concern for others. It wasn’t that great there either, and I was the one paying for it, so that’s minus $40. We should have gone to Red Lobster. After we went to the Jo Beth bookstore. Even though I hate them, I hadn’t read anything in a while except The Lovely Bones (which is an awful book, don’t believe the hype). They didn’t have The Shining or any interesting bios, so I got Ender’s Game, which I’ve been meaning to read for a while.
I’ve got two new fl layouts up now, my Maria Sharapova, and Amber’s K-ON one. I love the coding on the second one, it looks really good further down on the page. A preview of what will be the layout of my new anime fl collective domain Zangetsuki.org is here. I prefer my current layout, but I decided to move that one to Among the Stars since its layout only looks good in 1024×764. That’s if I don’t try to fix it with div id’s, but it’s so much hassle since I’m not used to that yet. I’ve been downloading a ton of textures for layouts and icons, so expect to see more, esp of the icons, I still have a lot to upload, and a lot more I want to make. I’ve already made over 100 Schneizel and Clovis bases, and I want to make more for other fandoms. Since he hasn’t been here in a while, and he’s really missed sharing his hotness in my posts, Schneizel once again gets to be my icon.
Another icon post, this time with 23 CC avatars from the anime Code Geass. The last two are actually the first two I did, when I was experimenting with various things in Paint Shop Pro, and the rest were based on those, but edited with the cropping I preferred. I’ve put most behind a cut so they don’t overwhelm the page, like the Cardcaptor ones did. I also added 3 cat icons in the other category.
I hadn’t done any graphics in a while, and was really itching to, so I made some icons. I haven’t downloaded my Code Geass scans yet, so I looked up some Cardcaptor Sakura images on AnimePaper.net. Still stucking using PSP7. I tried to download my copy of 8, so I could use scripts, but Norton found a virus in it and deleted one of the files. Can’t find a working download for Photoshop CS either.
Or just coo coo (or would it be koo koo?). Like I said before my mom and Matt-freak broke up again. The same thing happens that always happens. So I’m going to write this and that’s the last I want to hear/think about it because I have enough stress without people acting like children. So I found out yesterday when my aunt called that the idiot left a bunch of her stuff up in boxes at her place, and that he said he was bringing more tomorrow (now today). The first thing I thought was “That %$^&#$% bastard! How are we supposed to get all that down here?!” But because he’s such a gd bastard he doesn’t care. When my mom got home I didn’t want to be the one to tell her so I was going to try to get her to call Cynthia. Didn’t need to. Turns out he left a letter in the mailbox saying what he was going to do, as well as a lot of other stuff. My mom’s reaction was the same as mine, getting all that down here is just no possible. But like I said there was a lot of other stuff in the letter as well, and I only know a little bit of it. I do know his complete insanity comes out in it, and I am not exagerating. This guy seriously needs a psychiatric evaluation. It might seem ridiculous coming from me, but I only have depression, no matter how severe it is, and some OCD, I am not delusional or paranoid. Matt is delusional, paranoid, and a coward. This isn’t coming from my bias against him, but from what I know and have seen it’s obvious. My mother said the letter was extremely hateful, and had awful, awful things in it.
Some of the things he said was that she was broken from the beginning and that he thought he could fix her. Yeah, because she was the one who had just come off from a divorce where her partner had fled across the country with her two kids on a greyhound bus to get away from her (then followed said partner here), and then was living in her sisters basement… oh, wait, that was him. Being around her is like being poisoned, not enough to kill you but you lose a little more of yourself every day, and that spending even more than a weekend with her is like slowly dying, etc, and that he didn’t love her anymore and hated her. Yet my mother says that on Monday he was all over her, so obviously his hatred for her doesn’t stop him from trying to be a dirty whore. He also said that he was changing all the locks and the alarm system, and told his neighbors to call the police if the alarm goes off, and not to call him because he would consider it harassment (I don’t think the law would). Another WTF from the both of us. He actually thinks that she is going to break into his house/stalk him/kill him? Another thing he said was something like despite all that most of the family has been decent to him. I’m guessing Cyndy and I are not included in that, since he knows we both despise him. And yet he claims not to know why this family hates him. Then when he was over Cynthia’s he was offering her chili he made! Cynthia said she didn’t like chili, and he said “you’d like mine, mine is good.” And I’m like don’t take any food from him. And if he says “hey, you want some candy” don’t get in the car, just say you’re not supposed to talk to strangers. She said that today when he was dropping more stuff off again that he was calling her Aunt Cynthia, chatting with her neighbors, and saying hi to everyone he saw like he knows them. He is seriously disturbed. Cynthia said he had some nerve to go around like that, but it’s not nerve because he’s a coward.
For the past 14 years he’s broken up with her in letters and has acted like she’s the crazy one when he does. My mom said the letter was full of typos too. That’s all I know about the letter Cynthia said he was a psychopath, but like I told my mom, he’s not, he’s a sociopath. Sociopaths don’t have it as together as psychopaths do, I psychopath would never act like this, a sociopath would. He is always like this. Like when he was staying with us after following my mom across the country from Arizona to Pittsburgh after they had broken up (again) he was rearranging furniture, doing what he wanted with the internet, etc. Then when I heard him talking about my mom behind her back (and saying things like in the letter, that she wasn’t well and stuff) and told her, right after when passing through my room (the bathroom was connected to my room) he stepped on a little cardboard box of trinkets that I had made (and had painted to look like real wood, it was gorgeous) and then kicked it. I could tell it was no accident. You don’t stomp on something, then kick it across the room on accident, and he did that while I was there. Then he told my mom that I had put his toothbrush in the toilet. He is delusional and extremely paranoid. There is seriously something wrong with him. It runs in his family too. When I was little my mom had to call the police because after another time when they had broken up, his trailer trash sister left a message on our answering machine saying he was going to beat her up/kill her, and had come looking for us, but we weren’t home at the time. He could be a danger to himself, but who cares about that, he more has a high potential to be a danger to others. He would never do anything outright, because he’s a coward, but with the way he’s acting now and has acted in the past it’s clear he’s unstable and could do something bad. My mom said she ripped up the letter, but I think she should have kept it just in case (and to remind her of what a crazy person he is) for legal reasons. There is the question of whether he will move back to Arizona or not. I wish he would. He’s probably going to get fired from his job soon anyway, since he’s been constantly calling off. And he’s this close to having a heart attack, because not only is he old, he has gotten even fatter since I last saw him. He was disgustingly obese then in 2006, with his stomach protruding grotesquely a couple feet out in front of him. I don’t even want to think about how sickening he looks now. Good riddance to him. If it was up to me I would do my best to get a restraining order against him, and get him that psychiatric evaluation, because he clearly needs it.
Edit Dec 7: lol, Crack Geass: Timeskipping with Goro Taniguchi (I thought there might be another manga after the last ones did badly) and update 4, that’s our Sunrise. There’s been rumors for a while now, in January Sunrise said they had some important news to give out, and someone on LJ said it was a rumor online from a source that is usually right. I thought if anything was going to happen today would be the day, so I was hoping for it and I was right. The first thing I saw when I went to ANN was New Code Geass Project’s Launch Revealed (Updated) Bandai’s mobile phone website promises more details in 2010. And on LiveJournal [News] New Code Geass Project!!! (plus this birthday event). So the CG fandom has exploded, as to be expected. Apparently it’s a very popular topic for bloggers in Japan. I’m in the camp that if I can, I will watch whatever it is they throw at me because it’s Code freaking Geass. Some think it’ll be a movie/ova because one of the seiyuu at the birthday event seemed to keep emphasizing that although the TV anime was over… In any case I’m so happy! We’ve been waiting for this (except those of us who weren’t) for so long! Squeeee! And happy birthday Lelouch!
