Half a Century and No Common Horse Sense

An unfortunately eventful day. I always used to say spring was cursed, because that’s when the most of the bad things in my life happened, then summer replaced that. I wouldn’t quite say it’s up to curse level again yet, but it’s definitely a start. A cousin told Cynthia that my grandfather was in the hospital after falling down. I saw Pap Pap when my mom dragged me to the library near him to do her taxes. He didn’t look too good, even for his age, and he said that he’d been getting dizzy. It seems that’s what happened today. When we tracked down what hospital he’s in my mom spoke to him and his nurses. He’s fine, but they want to keep him overnight for observation. Apparently they’re concerned with some of the answers he’s giving them. One question they asked was “How are you getting your meals?” His reply? “Oh, I get them.” Typical Pap Pap answer, but that makes them think he either hit his head when he fell, or that he’s senile. So they’re going to run some tests on him.

WDisney’s preliminary hearing is tomorrow, and mommy dearest is getting her stitches out then too. I pissed her off several times today when she was complaining once again that she doesn’t know where she’s going to go, and doesn’t know where she’s going to work. She says she looks like Frankenstein’s monster and no one will want to hire her, in addition to the fact she’s old. I can give her advice, but she won’t take it and will only get angry. I know they say not everyone is looking for advice when they’re venting, and they just want to be heard, but she has been heard plenty of times. There are things she could do but she won’t do them. Another reason I made her angry is because she found out today that Nita sent me a card, but not her. She asked me how much money Nita sent me and I prefaced my answer by stating that I wasn’t going to give it to her, so there’s no point in asking. Mommy dearest got angry about that, but with her track record (she took all of the money Nita sent me one year without telling me, which she still owes me for, she took Pap Pap’s money from me one time without telling me, plus many more times). She said it doesn’t matter since only my name is on the card, but that’s never stopped her before. If I was living with her she’d just take the money and never tell me I’d gotten a card.

Psycho Patrol Again

As soon as I write that something “interesting” happens. Wdisney is in jail again for beating the shit out of my mother again. Apparently her face is all bruised and she has stitches in her head. I guess the incident happened on Monday or Tuesday. I called her on Monday because I thought the psycho was at work, I don’t bother calling when he’s there because he listens in and won’t stop talking to her while she’s on the phone (like a little kid). She says he’s been crazier than usual since her birthday when she went out with Cyndy, then me, and Bonnie on Friday. My mom was at Cyndy’s on Sunday, but Cyndy wouldn’t let her stay there even though she was going away, so my mom went back home. Now my mom says she’s not going to bother asking Cyndy for any help. I don’t blame Cyndy for not wanting her there, what if he came looking for her? And she’s probably sick of my mom’s drama. I know I am. I delicately tried to remind her that we all told her last summer not to go back with him. But no, she had to pick the crazy, angry, druggie, and not the nice guy. And now Randy has a girlfriend, so that option is out. I will never forgive her for that, and I have zero pity for her. She got herself into this mess and had plenty of outs, but no. “Wdisney is nice, he’s funny, he’s” blah blah blah. Yeah, he’s real nice and funny when he’s not fighting with her or beating her up. No wonder that crackhead can’t get a legitimate job, despite being so talented (oh, he’s a chef, musician, singer, mechanic, handyman). I wonder what his full criminal record looks like. My mom has been thinking about some things, which I can’t post here because this is public. While I doubt that Neanderthal is capable of even turning on a computer letting alone searching for someone, I have to be careful. In any case I don’t think she’ll leave him, it’d be a big surprise if she does.

Good Christian Bitches

Comcast’s bill was mailed in late so the internet is disconnected right now. I’m using the neighbors horribly slow wireless. It takes several minutes for pages to load, if it loads at all, so I’m not using it too much. Maybe my internet will be back on by tomorrow. An icon will be added when I can.

Two basically good days. My mood has been yo-yoing between hopeful and despondent for the past few weeks, but yesterday I was in a very good mood. Cyndy took me out and I got to go to Red Lobster. I get to go there once a year or less so it was a very nice treat for me. I got my usual, crab linguini alfredo. Didn’t get the chocolate wave cake, after everything Cyndy does for me I couldn’t ask for something else. And no more chocolate for me now since I’ve given it up for Lent. After we got out of Red Lobster Cyndy took me to Best Buy, she was talking about getting me a printer for me and a new computer for herself, though not right now. Her computer of 10 years finally kicked the bucket, so she’s thinking about getting either a laptop or a tablet. Since she had time I got to look around. The Best Buy wasn’t great, the one near South Hills Village is bigger and has more things, but it was still a lot of fun. I love technology, it was great getting to look at everything. If you don’t love technology you can’t imagine how wonderful it is to be let loose in a store like that. The biggest TV I found there (though not the biggest I know of) was 70 inches. It was incredible.

Cynthia went to church yesterday, and I asked if I could go today with her for Ash Wednesday. :angel: First Presby doesn’t normally do ashes, but they did this time. I didn’t do it because I didn’t want to get up in front of everyone, but Cynthia did. Since it was a weekday service it was shorter than it usually is. I wasn’t very good. I was quiet, but I kept getting distracted. I didn’t sing, not that there was a whole lot of singing, more of a mumbling. I also didn’t close my eyes and put my head forward to pray, but anyone who saw me wasn’t either so they have no right to say anything.

We went to Eat n Park after. I broke some sort of rule and had chicken, Cynthia had fish. When we got home of course Cynthia had to tell everyone that I went, and even my mother was acting shocked like “didn’t the church cave in?” I am a Christian, I was raised Christian, this isn’t anything new (though the whole going to church thing is). Just because I don’t shout it from the rooftops or try to force other people to believe what I do doesn’t mean I’m not. And I love that church. It is so beautiful. I don’t care how wonderful other churches are, to me the First Presbyterian Church of Pittsburgh is the most beautiful church in the world. It is so gothic, awe inspiring, and has huge Tiffany’s stained glass windows. I just love it. However I do not love the views of the people who have control of it right now. They’re evangelical, and however much Cynthia disagrees with that term they are self-described “bible-centered evangelical.” Their website is a whole lot of conservative. They support a bunch of evangie missions, crisis pregnancy centers, and the fake jews. What was most infuriating for me is they support evangelical missions in Africa. They are responsible for the witch hunts in Africa, and people like Helen Ukpabio. And they are so blind and ignorant to it, or they just don’t care. Maybe these crazies even support it. First Presby also had some people at the 40 Days for Life crap, but in the picture it only showed like 5 people. The church isn’t that popular so they feel they have to change. Their solution? Become more crazy. Because their conservative church isn’t getting people in the pews, they think their problem is they aren’t conservative enough. o.O That’s the way the conies think. One woman who came in today said she was going to drag people in off the streets, and laughed. Yeah… That’s the spirit lady. I know she was joking, but that’s the kind of point of view they have, and I’ve already stated I’m against that sort of thing. The sermon today wasn’t even slightly political, so that was good. If they got into actual politics, like the repug candidates, they better not do it while I’m there, because I won’t hesitate to report them. Cynthia was telling me about some candle thing the church does on Maundy Thursday where each person gets a candle, they’re lit, and all the lights are out. I asked if she goes if I can go too and she said yes. So if you hear about a church in Pittsburgh burning down on Maundy Thursday I probably dropped my candle. I’ll be holding onto it for dear life. That’s if I go, and after reading the Wikipedia page about it I might not want to! Apparently some churches have people read scripture, and then they snuff out their candle when they finish, and I’m not reading anything out loud! FPCP didn’t do that in the past, Cynthia would have said so, but since they’re changing other things…

Since I’ve been out of internet I’ve finally started the rest of the winter anime season I’ve been meaning to. I don’t like The Knight in the Area very much, even though FukuJun is sorta in it. I’m actually enjoying Ano Natsu de Matteru, despite it not being my kind of thing. I’ve already been watching Senki Zesshou Symphogear, Another, and Inu X Boku SS. Symphogear is stupid of course, but if you accept it as stupid and treat it as a ridiculous comedy it can be somewhat enjoyable. I love horror and there needs to be more horror anime so of course I like Another well enough. It’s not wonderful, but good enough. Inu X Boku I don’t like at all, it’s so annoying. I still have to start Brave 10, that pirates one, that daily/boys/life one, and some others. I was trying to copy their titles but that made explorer crash so I’m not going to do that again. It’s all because of this stupid 10 bit shit they’re all doing now. I can’t play it in VLC or KMP, and it makes explorer crash. I think it’s because I have DivX installed, but I can’t uninstall it because I need it for a video site I use. Or maybe it’s just because 10 bit is useless, elitist crap we don’t need!

As for the title, most people know one of those. If you don’t, you probably are one! I’m definitely going to watch GCB when it starts.

She Actually Called Me

My idiot mother just called. I was going to call her because a letter came from storage saying she hasn’t paid yet. I didn’t want to call her because she’s 49 and is old enough to know how to pay her bills. But I know she probably put my SS card in there and I need that. She called me a few minutes later so… Then she started crying and saying she’s so depressed she wants to kill herself blah blah blah It was hard to understand her because she was sniffling. She hasn’t started looking for a job yet because she doesn’t know where she’s going to live. Blah blah blah things will get better she says. And then says she’s saying that for herself too. I know everything is about her. She’s staying at Cyndy’s while she’s in California. And I’m not getting internet until the end of the month or early October because Cyndy’s not coming back until the 23. Then idiot said she had to go because she was crying. Boo freaking hoo.

Why call someone if you’re crying? She just wanted to share how depressed she is. She’s not going to get any sympathy from me. I was going to put this on Twitter. I didn’t want to make a blog post for this because I wanted my status post to stay first, but it was too long. So I pinned the status post to first. When I’m done with everything I’ll put them in the actual order.

Since I had to make a whole post I might as well talk about something else. I started to watch some new shows. Ringer was last night, The Secret Circle tomorrow, then Revenge, and Pan Am. I’m just giving them a try. Ringer has exactly the kind of concept I hate, it’s super awkward, and I get… second hand embarrassment (or something?) from the characters and situations. Whenever I try to a new show I like to stick with it for at least a few episodes (I stuck through an entire series/season of Skins when I wasn’t sure about it!).

I didn’t like Ev’s new song the first time they performed it. I thought it might be because it was live, so I decided to wait until the studio version came out. It took me a bit to get used to the “Do what you what you want” part, which is what I didn’t like about it, but I really like the song now. The video came out yesterday, which I have to say I don’t like, but I so rarely like music videos so that’s nothing out of the ordinary. What You Want is a good start, can’t wait to hear the rest of the album.

I don’t have my icons uploaded yet, so no avatar for this post. I have to go back to fixing my fanlistings. I’m only on the b’s right now…

Moving to New Host

I am currently in the process of moving to a new host. I will make a more detailed post in the near future, but right now I am focused on getting everything up and working.

What’s Going On Part II

This is the third time I’m writing this. All I feel like saying is that my mother is a liar and I’m not going to be living where I want to. I called Cyndy and she said she’ll call Comcast on Thursday. So I should have my own internet the week after this one.

A Little Late Summer Cleaning

Because spring cleaning never happened. While searching my site for malware the other day, I also did a little maintenance removing all the old and unneeded files from my site. I thought I should do so for my others sites and my computer as well, as it’s long overdue. I ran WP-Optimize on my WordPress and it got the file down to 2 MB, when it had been over 15 MB. That made it much easier it download. I finally updated my WordPress because I haven’t in a very long time (and I don’t like the new look WP, or the font post text box). Next I cleaned up my desktop which was completely covered in files, and changed the wallpaper. It actually wasn’t the one in the sidebar at the bottom of the page, I’ve had several different wallpapers since then.

anime wallpaper animepaper.net

Then I cleared out a folder on my computer, but that’s all I’m going to take that slowly, because just that one was annoying enough. This is why my computer and domains get so cluttered, but I hate tedious things! After that I ran CCleaner, now I’m running Windows Defender, then after that Malwarebytes scan, and Norton scan. This is going to take forever. But you can never be too careful. I’m also have a lot to do with my browsers too. I finally closed all my Firefox windows (I had about 25 open) and I’ve cut down on my Chrome windows (only 19 open right now!) as well. I’ve also exported my bookmarks to both Delicious and Google, and I’m clear out the ones actually on the computer. I have over 1000, many of them Pinterest pages (I don’t know why I didn’t just re-pin the images I liked, instead of bookmarking hundreds of pages, but I did).

My technology aren’t the only ones getting work done today, my poor Allie cat had to have some maintenance of her own. Her brush just isn’t good enough for her, it’s more suited to short haired cats and can’t get the undercoat, and my senile old lady isn’t cleaning herself as thoroughly as she used to. That means she’s getting lumps. So I gave up on her brush, and tried the fine toothed end of a comb I never used. OMG I didn’t know she had that much fur on her! I don’t know how she has any left after all the brushing I did. Clump after clump of all fur came off her. I’m still not done, and I haven’t gotten any of the matted fur off her yet, because she’s a cat and very disagreeable. She somewhat put up with it for a while because she likes getting brushed, but she didn’t like the comb getting caught on her. And she also doesn’t like to stay in one place while getting brushed, and constantly moves around, making it very difficult. I’ve got many a scratch on me now from trying to make her sit still.

Mommy dearest didn’t call this weekend despite her saying “I can’t go that long without talking to you!!!eleventy” :side: (I just realized I don’t have a sufficient eye roll smiley…) She’s gone weeks without talking to me before, I know she can last a weekend. Maybe she’ll call today. I need to know whether she’s really going through with this or not, because there are things I’d have to do before moving, like having my last baby tooth pulled. :hick:

And Irene Is My Mother’s Middle Name

I didn’t find out about Hurricane Irene’s path until yesterday. I knew there was a hurricane coming, but I just thought hurricane + August = normal. I know it was headed to the eastern coast until yesterday. It’s a good thing my plan to go to Maryland didn’t come to fruition. Randy has vacation time right now, and my mom and I had wanted to go to Ocean City. Randy didn’t want to, and they went somewhere in PA instead. Thank God for that! My father’s side of the family lives in Maryland, so I got on Facebook for the first time in a while yesterday to see what was going on there. The hurricane isn’t affecting us much here, we’re just getting clouds from it, and it’s a little windy. Central and western PA are getting some storms and rain. Continue reading

Here’s What’s Going On

I’m doing this is a little earlier than I said I would, but the Psycho Patrol post is now public, with some parts removed. Edit: I am trying to edit the post and make it public but the stupid thing won’t save, it keeps timing out. Edit again: Okay, I just tried to post this, and it’s either my host or somethings wrong with WordPress because this won’t post either. Last Edit: Finally I got all of that updated. Took an hour to do it.

My mom called today and I asked her about that woman and she said that lady is definitely not coming now, and I can move in to Randy’s place in a week or so. First she has to clean up the “blue room” (called so because Randy painted it blue) for me. In terms of bedroom space I am actually downgrading, the blue room is half the size of Cynthia’s smallest bedroom, but Cynthia’s is an actual house and Randy owns a townhouse. As I said in the Psycho Patrol post it’s in a very lovely area, there’s air conditioning, Dish Network, internet, and lot’s of room for Allie to run around.

I’ve wanted Randy’s place since I stayed there for a week or so around my 16th birthday. While I fantasized about it many times I never thought I’d actually get to live there (of course when I imagined it the place was mine alone). This is actually the second time I (if I actually do, this all depends on my mother who is notoriously unreliable) have gotten to live in a place I’ve imagined living in, though in a different way. For a couple I had imagined living in the apartment I lived in when I was 5, before we moved to Arizona for the first time. And when I was 17 I got to move in to that house, though it was in the apartment downstairs. It ended up being horrible, and I after Wdisney moved in I moved back in with my great aunt Cynthia. I’m hoping this turns out much better.

Edit: I said I wouldn’t edit again, but I have to because I completely forgot: Mommy dearest has come up in the world since being with Randy. Randy has vacation time this week, so they’re going away for the weekend. I won’t say where since this isn’t private. Oh, and she got a kick out of me calling him Brigham Young. She said “I don’t do that”. I was like “what, a couple more women and you could have your own TV show!” :biggrin:

Randy has Verizon internet but even if I do move in there in a week I don’t have how long it’ll take me to get online with my computer because he may not know the code for the wireless, and I don’t know how well the wireless will work. It’s a townhouse, three floors, with the wireless router on the bottom floor. My computer will be on the third floor, and while it is a laptop I can’t move it around because it’s plug is messed up so I can’t be continuously plugging it in and unplugging it. So, once again I am saying… I’ll hopefully have internet in the next couple weeks. *sobbing* The state of the internet at the moment? I’ve gotten past Comcast’s blockade, but it’s still so I have to stay in a certain position for the internet to (sort of) work. It very temperamental and the slightest change can make it stop working, and it gets painful after a while.

I’ve set Netflix to streaming only for now, since the price for streaming and renting is going up. I hope they don’t erase my DVD queue because I’m going to switch it back after I put a dent in my streaming list. They didn’t when I put my account on hold, so they better not now. I have made a backup list in case they do though. I was very dismayed to find the animated Batman series aren’t streaming! I decided I wanted to start one since I’m such a big Dark Knight fan, Christopher Nolan’s third Batman movie was filming here, AND he said it’s the last one… I found that really disappointing, I wanted to seem more villains.

When I get stable internet back, besides watching Netflix, anime, and reading manga I have to update my Best Adoptables list. I’m a member of new adoptables sites now (some with really great sprites like World of Umbria), and my opinion has changed in different ways, some better some worse. Kingdom of Knuffel – much better. Magistream – much worse, stay away from this site! Some are the same, Subeta is still awesome, and so is VDex Project, two very good sites. Subeta had a plot in early August (plus we’re getting into event time and then it’ll be practially EVENTS NON STOP) and I did well enough considering the internet problems I was having. Oh, yeah and my Subetaversary is coming up! I don’t get anything for this one (for certain anniversaries you get a loyalty box and with it you can get another pet spot, or paint a pet any color you want, etc), but it’s still exciting! And VDex… Wish Jirachi Tanabata event in July, now we’re having three weeks of events (specially colored Shinx, Ponyta ending tomorrow, Pikachu after that), then an Absol event in September, and Litwick for Halloween. *more sobbing* They’re extremely simple, it’s just refreshing, but it gets mind numbing.

Psycho Patrol

Edit 7/16/11: I’ve removed most of what I typed last night, leaving only my nonsensical, boredom induced ramblings. I didn’t hear anything last night, it was generally quiet. What I had written was about the night before that. When I did hear a lot as did my aunt. But I can’t be sure it was him. Part of me thinks I have more than enough “evidence” and the other part finds different explanations for what happened. And really, I would rather be wrong. I want to be wrong. No one tried to break in that night. I was expecting either that or nothing at all. I wasn’t expecting to be toyed with.

Since I am going to continue adding all this to one single post I am going to leave the rest here.

7/15/11

[removed]

Tiger is supposed to be acting as my alarm. Whenever someone comes to the door he runs away, but he’s decided to sleep on Cynthia’s bed instead. I am trying to tempt him with food, but it’s not working. The other cats aren’t making this any easier because they won’t stop making noise.

Well, my patrol has started now. For the next 5 hours I will be down here watching and listening for any sign of trouble. But as I said, I am more prepared this time, for play at least. Unless it actually sounds like someone is trying to break in I’m not going to the window. It was my constant looking out yesterday that started this probably. I was letting myself get pulled around by him.

Maybe I’ll just ramble now since there isn’t anything else I can do.

Obviously I have the comp on now (I mentioned in the removed part that I had wanted to read manga the night before, but didn’t because the computer screen was too bright) because even at almost 21 sitting doing nothing but listening to the night and house sounds for 7 hours is a bit much. I had wanted to read manga but I just realized all I have is BL… and I’m not in a BL kinda mood right now, and it’s too much of a distraction. Internet would be real nice right now. I don’t know if I mentioned this last time this happened, but I’ve been thinking again about asking Cynthia if I could have internet here if she didn’t have to pay for it, and I’ve been thinking of asking Cyndy to pay for it. I can pay for a few months of it, how long depending on the installation fee, and the price of it. The prices listed online say about $20/mo for both Comcast and Verizon, how much it would really cost I don’t know. I’d prefer Comcast, but only if they’d put the box in my room. They’ve always insisted in putting in in the living room, and not only has all this given me a strong hatred for wireless internet, I also can’t afford a wireless router. Verizon comes with wireless. That’s if both of them would even agree to it. As I’ve said before I’m a coward so I’ve put off asking for months, and now this has happened again…

It’s not Friday anymore, but this is all as Rebecca Black says fun, fun, fun.

I’m still sane and will probably remain that way. My mother has dealt with dv before, with at least one other person. When I was a little kid and we were living here with Cynthia some guy pushed my mom out of a car. I don’t think the car was moving, or at least wasn’t going fast. My stupid mom didn’t want to press charges, because she didn’t want to hurt him. At least we never felt threatened by him. This time she’s subjecting us to a strangers instabilities as well. We’re one drunks bad decision away from becoming a statistic. We don’t know how violent he really is, beyond threats, but I’ve written on here before about how obsessive and jealous he is. And he doesn’t seem close to his family. We know he has at least two children, my mom says they’re spoiled and never call unless they want something. Uh huh. I don’t know what they could ask for, he doesn’t have anything. When he moved in with my he only had a few things, and didn’t even (supposedly) have regular shoes, only sandals. Uh huh.

If I do go insane I’d like to be the Joker, TDK version. He is so much fun in that movie. And it’s much better than just rolling around on the floor in a straitjacket.

I want internet. I want to post this before I take up a third page in Open Office. I want to waste time on Subeta and KofK. And Twitter! @Bluestarintears Could you apparate here with one of your swords? I’m sure I’ve been kicked out of my dynasty on Yarold’s for not clicking. And I need to move some fanlistings before the domain they’re on expires and I get troubled.

4 more hours. 1 hour of battery remaining.

mooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

Internet why have you forsaken me?

Third page now.

@Bluestarintears Have you splinched yourself somewhere?

Anime characters who should be here right now… I love Schneizel but he probably wouldn’t be any help, at least Lelouch has Geass. Jeremiah woud be good, in his R2 cyborg form. Solomon Goldsmith and/or Nathan… Luck Gandor, he’s immortal too. Kadota would be okay, Shizuo would be awesome, as long as Wdisney attacks first or makes him angry, Izaya… it depends. Asami… yes Asami! He could defend us, though I don’t see why he would. If I was Aki though it would be all over for Wdisney! I wouldn’t want to be a guy though, or Aki. The only good thing about him is Asami.

3 ½ more hours. I might have to turn the light on so I can read.

Do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do

Got the Baccano OP stuck in my head. Just finished that series. Needs moar Luck. Like rara needs moar Kadota. But Durarara needs moar Kadota than Baccano needs moar Luck.

Durarara’s best cover songs:

1. Kadota – OMG324?#$%#$%#$ I so want to know what he’s saying in his special voice
2. Celty – don’t know how she’s singing though. I keep imagining Celty with everyone and the head back at Izaya’s place singing. Izaya: oO
3. Kida – LINDA LINDA LINDA LINDA LINDA
4. Mikado – I hate him, and he’s not that great a singer but I like it for the lol quality
5. Izaya – A little too long. Kadota’s is only a little over 2 minutes long!
6. Shizuchan – I prefer him singing the Kuroshitsuji songs.

Some haven’t been included. I love FukuJun and it’s fun to hear him sing, but once per song is enough.

Now I’ve got Linda Linda stuck in my head. Now instead of “Do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do” it’s “Linda linda linda linda linda linda linda linda linda linda”

3 hours left.

End of page 3, and end of battery. Time to get off now.

7/16/11

By the end of the night I had Over My Head (Cable Car) stuck instead. I don’t know how I’m going to last another night. It’s awful just sitting in the dark for 5-7 hours listening and waiting and waiting and waiting not knowing what’s going to happen. I end up checking the phone all the time shocked that only 10 minutes have past when it feels like 30. Of course I don’t want anything to happen, but I don’t know if it will or not so I’m on edge the entire time. At least I’m getting a lot of praying in. I have a feeling tonight is going to be even rougher because I’m so exhausted. I was dead tired the morning and fell asleep fairly quickly, but I didn’t stay asleep. And when I woke up I couldn’t go back to sleep, thanks to all the anxiety. My anxiety levels are at max, though not right now thankfully. I do need some downtime so my heart doesn’t pop out of my chest.

7/16/11 10:31pm Don’t know when I’ll get past Comcast’s blockade again. Time to start the patrol again.

Almost 7/17

A couple minutes after I posted all that Comcast took over again. I have heard something already tonight, but as I said before I could have misheard or it could have been the neighbor. I thought I heard someone outside saying my aunts name.

It’s so hot in here, worse than the other nights. It’s okay outside, but it’s like an oven in here. Even the walls are hot.

My alarm went upstairs again. I don’t know why, it’s probably hotter up there than it is down here even if there are more windows open up there. Only one is open down here, in the most hard to reach place. Cynthia just came down for some water and just showed some emotion about this. She’s angry with my mom because she’s not really saying anything about the incident or keeping us updated. She says that my mom starts this and we’re the ones who have to deal with it. Her mood changes. Sometimes she mocks me for keeping watch, saying he can’t get in because all the windows are locked (she’s quite naïve at times). And other times she takes this seriously. Cynthia told the neighbors to keep a look out for Wdisney. They hunt and have lots of guns.

Tiger came down, briefly looked at me calling him, then went to eat and straight down the cellar.

Someone just let off fireworks three times. It’s July 17 and after midnight.

It scared Tiger up from the basement, and now he’s sitting in front of the door. Yay, my kitty alarm is here!

3 more hours left. I don’t think I’m going to be able to get back online with this internet again. Before it used to take me to an activation page saying to enter your account number. The last one said both account and phone number. Now it takes me to a generic sign in page saying to enter your user id and password. I’m going to have to ask Cynthia about getting internet, this just isn’t going to work anymore.

Quiet night so far. Running out of battery for the second time. Just finished watching the Kadota episode of Durarara. Wish I could continue, it put me in a really good mood. Kadota <3 Aw, man the next one is Shizuo! Not only is it fun, there's young!Kadota without a hat on! But there's no point in charging the battery again now, only about 2 hours left.

7/18

I just noticed, you briefly see Kadota before then, right before Shizuo sees Izaya for the first time. How did I miss it?!

I completely forgot November 11 for anime characters that should be here!

Yesterday I said that even the walls are hot. Make that doorknobs too. The fridge was making some very angry noises earlier. Poor big fluffy Tiger has just been laying around. And if Allie sheds any more she's not going to have any fur left! My poor baby. And there's supposed to be a heat wave coming... Quiet night so far again. 1 ½ hours left.

7/18 Late Afternoon/Early Evening

I guess I'm not going to be catching any more Wish Jirachi or Wish Wynaut. Thanks internet, you screwed up the last VDex event too.

Crap I just remember Egg Cave! My time with Tim expired for most of them a few days ago. They’re all going to die again! Most are safe for now.

I haven’t been feeling well all day. A combination of heat and stress I think. I want to feel better by tomorrow because Cyndy called and said we’d go see the new Harry Potter movie. Though that means less sleep for me when I’m already running on empty. I didn’t get much today thanks to the heat, stress, and upset stomach. Cynthia is doing her best to contribute to it. If she’s calling you and you don’t immediate appear before her knowing exactly what she wants she gets angry. Needless to say I haven’t asked the cantankerous old lady about internet yet. Cynthia talked to Cyndy about my mom and she also told Cyndy she’s going to Texas.

Storm is coming. Uh, I mean here… Yes, weather, we’re all pretty angry. No need to make such a fuss.

I like …. ~ too.

7/19

It seems the only ones loving this weather are the bugs. I’ve got bug bites all over me.

I went to see Harry Potter this afternoon. $7 each was the matinee price. It was pretty crowded, and with a lot of teenage boys. I was thinking “shouldn’t you be at Transformers?” They yapped and made noises the whole movie. Cell phones went off a couple times. The movie itself was okay, better than the first part at least with a lot of good special effects. I expected more from the aging effects at the end though, they weren’t as special as they were supposed to be in my op. The music was pretty good. Are there no haircuts in HP’s the world of the dead? Lily’s hair is styled nicely, but James has the same haircut he had in the 70′s. I like the previews, but the commercials before the movie have gotten even longer. I was surprised to see a Dark Knight Rises teaser before the movie considering it isn’t even done filming yet, and isn’t coming out until 2012! Most of the footage was from the previous movies. I was more shocked to see it say that it’s the last movie! Catwoman is the final villain?! And after The Joker… it seems very anti-climatic.

My mom hasn’t called me in a few days, but she has been talking to Cyndy. She called her while we were in the theatre (it wasn’t hers that went off, but she did keep checking it). Wdisney may have hit my mom as well because Cyndy said “I don’t think men who hit women fight would fight a man”, which I think is vastly oversimplifying things. Violent people will be violent regardless of whether the person they are being violent towards is male or female. What little I heard of their conversation doesn’t really interest me so I won’t talk about it here.

Yes, Norton, I know my definitions are out of date, there’s nothing I can do about it. Windows Update you STFU too.

Cynthia was in a good mood when I got back, or at least not a bad mood so I took the chance to ask her if she didn’t have to pay for it if she’d let me get internet. She seemed receptive to the idea. I thought she would resist it more because she wouldn’t want some strange guy in her basement drilling holes in her house. But there’s still Cyndy to ask (and since I’m never around her I can’t gauge her moods) and the whole thing is pretty complicated.

First it all depends on how much the internet would cost, and it’s between Comcast and Verizon of course. I have the money to pay it now, for how long depends on how much it is and how much the installation fee is. Last time I looked Verizon was advertising $20/mo for new customers with a contract. Comcast was $20/mo for the first few months. When my mom got cable she put it in my name, so I’d be a returning customer with Comcast, so there wouldn’t be any discounts and might cost more, since I’d be transferring the services the installation fee would probably be less. There’s also where it would be installed. Comcast has always insisted on putting the box in the living room no matter where I wanted it. I need the internet upstairs in my room. I can’t afford a wireless router. Verizon comes with wireless, but after all this I do not want to use wireless internet if at all possible. I’d prefer Comcast to Verizon because I’m used to it, and I consider Verizon to be the greater evil right now, and what with their buddy buddy relationship with Google now they’re a big threat. What if Google turns over my search history to them? I don’t know if there’s something to plug your computer into like Comcast. Then there’s the matter of how to pay for it. As I said I have the money for now, but I don’t have a bank account so I’d have to give the money to Cynthia. Then when I run out I’d have to tell Cyndy and she’d send $__ every month which would be given to Cynthia who’d write Comcast a check? Would they even take the check in Cynthia’s name instead of mine? I don’t think Cynthia would want it in her name. There’s no point in trying to explain all this to Cynthia. If I do get my own internet again I doubt it’ll happen before the great Pottermore rush. I wanted to try to be one of the first people to get in. I hope to get it before Netflix changes their plans… they said September 1st right? Not August 1st… right? Right?! I want to get some watching in before I had to downgrade. Now mostly I just hope that I’m able to get on to downgrade! I don’t want to make Cynthia angry now.

Inglorious Basterds came today, but I can’t watch it now because my patrol will be starting in 1-2 hours. I want to get it sent back as soon as possible though. I was really pissed off at Netflix splitting their services. I couldn’t watch any streaming leeching off the wireless, but I always thought of if – hopefully when I get my own internet (SOON!)… But I thought of a way around it, something I used to do when I wanted two disks at a time, just switch between them right before they charge for the next month. Then I’d spent some time with my streaming list, and some time with my DVD list. Both are huge, probably about 200 titles each, but some are shared between them because they insist on adding things in my DVD queue to my instant queue as well when both are available. My lists are cluttered enough without their help.

7/20

Starting watching some of the J and K dramas I have on here. But the stupid site I got them from mixed up some of the versions.

It’s supposed to feel up to 110 degrees here tomorrow. Am I still in Pittsburgh?

7/21

Finished Durarara again… probably will watch CG even though that won’t put me in a good mood.

Ugh. Cynthia got a small air conditioner for the kitchen. Whatever she paid for it is too much. I don’t know if our idiot family installed it wrong or it’s just crappy, but right now it’s just acting as a fan, a really bad fan, and blowing a lot of hot air in. I’m sick of weathermen saying “it’s hot so stay inside!” Not everyone has air conditioning you overpaid TV psychics. It’s probably cooler outside than it is in.

Finally I managed to get past Comcast’s blockade again, haven’t since the 18th. BUT NOT LONG ENOUGH TO POST THIS.

Have to give the computer a break now, it’s way to hot for it. I’ll have to finish charging it later.

I figured out why the air conditioner feels like a fan. It’s because those idiots set it on fan instead of cool!
