Today’s the Day

Today’s the day. The Super Bowl. The Super Bowl that my team is playing in. I’ve been planning on watching it, I always watch the Super Bowl, and it’s a requirement when the Steelers are playing, but I might not be able to. There’s two TVs here, a newer, digital one upstairs, and an old one downstairs that’s hooked up to a digital converter box. The government, in their infinite wisdom, made everyone switch to digital. It does not work. Those digital converter boxes are shit. The picture quality is still bad, and some stations don’t come in at all. Cynthia says her religious programs don’t come in on the TV downstairs so she’s going to watch them upstairs, sticking me with the crappy TV. And the problem is (other than watching the Super Bowl on an old TV that’s no bigger than 20 inches) I don’t know if Fox does either. This shit should be live streaming online. Edit: I was right! Fox is one of the messed up channels, it doesn’t have any sound! I am so pissed off!

I spoke to my mother the other day. She’s been having my rent the mini series Shogun for her from Netflix, and she wanted to know if a DVD had come. She told me great aunt Nita sent belated Christmas cards with $50 for each of us, and once again she took my money, and that she’ll “pay me back” but is only getting a $500 tax return back, and she needs that from rent. She said she’s also getting some from the state so she’ll give me my $50 from that. She started to say she thinks she owes me $20 more, and I had to correct her, $40. She now owes me $90. She took Nita’s Easter money, Nita’s birthday money, and now Nita’s Christmas money. $20, $20, $50. And she better stop BSing around, I need that money. My anti-virus expires in a couple months, and I cannot he without anti-virus protection.

I finished the first season of Skins on Netflix, and am almost done with the second. I don’t know if I’ll continue after that, since the original cast isn’t in it. I still like Jal and Chris, Cassie has fallen on my like list, still hate Michelle, like Tony a lot more now, don’t like Anwar anymore, he’s been replaced by Maxxie. I had started to like Sid a little bit more, but he starts acting like an ass again and by the end of the episode “Effy” I hated him again. Michelle is still a selfish, bitchy slut. After Tony’s comeupance/redemption episode last season he’s been a lot more likable. I hated Anwar in the first season because of the way he treated Maxxie, and don’t like him now because he’s such a weak whore. What he did was just wrong. As for Sketch, I have a complicated relationship with her. She’s such a complete psycho, which is both good and bad. Her episode was so scary and disturbing.

I still don’t have new headphones. I asked my mom if she had seen any of my old ones, and she found some and checked if they worked. She said they did, but when I got them up here and tried them they had the same problem they all do, only working in one ear. They’ve gotten even worse since then, and now stop working in both ears. Hopefully I’ll get new ones on Friday. I need anime, I need music, and I want to watch more Netflix instant. Roseanne and The Cosby Show are on there now. They need to add The Nanny next, I love that show.

Since I’ve been headphoneless off and on, I’ve been reading a lot of manga. I got caught up with the Pandora Hearts manga a couple weeks ago, since I really liked the anime, and now I’m very impatiently waiting for the next chapter. Such a good series. I loved the Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge anime, but the manga is really dragging. It seems like nothing ever changes. I’ve also started the Shiki manga, am going to start Monochrome Factor, Mitsudomoe, and some others.

That is All

That was brutal. I wasn’t even playing and my body is aching, and my head has been pounding since the first quarter. Every time I’d accepted that we were going to lose they’d get a touch down and give me hope again. Even at the end we were so freaking close. Steelers are known for their amazing, last minute wins. And they let us down. It’s going to be a while before I forgive them for this. Until next Super Bowl.

AFC Championship Today

The AFC Championship is today, which will determine whether the Steelers or the stupid Jets will go to the Super Bowl. Obviously Pittsburgh should win. When I found out the Steelers had won the last game I dressed up my Subeta avatar up in black and gold to show my support. Even my headshot is awesome. You can hover over them for an explanation of each. Regardless of the outcome, I’m going to be changing my avatar again in after. I’ve had a great outfit put together for a while that I’ve been waiting to use. It took me at least 30 million sP (the wig alone cost 20 million) and looks great. I might even put it on Style File I like it so much.

I was going to watch the game, but I decided not to do that to myself. If I’m awake when the game is on I’ll watch some anime or Skins on Netflix. After hearing everyone raving about Skins (the original UK version) I finally decided to watch it, and it’s available on Instant. So far I’ve seen three episodes. It’s actually a pretty good show, but depressing. I don’t know why these characters always ever together, they don’t act like friends they treat each other like crap. Tony is an arrogant bastard (who is not very good looking and can’t sing as well as he thinks he can), Michelle is a bitch and a slut, and Sid is just pathetic. Cassie and Jal are my favorite characters right now, Chris and Anwar are okay too.

I started playing City of Wonder on Facebook. I had to do it for a task to earn CSC on Subeta, and it was okay so I kept playing. It’s pretty simple so I can just keep the window open while I’m on Subeta or Netflix and click over to it when I need to. I named my city Damocles in honor of aku-nii. I also changed my username on Subeta from gwnedolyne to Schneizel, just because. As soon as I can figure out how to code profiles on Subeta I’m going to make a Schneizel layout for mine.
