This is a breakup letter.

After almost twenty years of patiently, affectionately dealing with your bumbling, your baffling cluelessness, and your technological ineptitude, I have finally had it with your shit. Sending my mortgage twice? I could deal with it if you would fix it. One week and a dozen phone calls later, you have not, and you still don't seem to understand what you did wrong. Goodbye.

Hate hate hate! I seriously cannot believe these people. Why have I been so patient with them? They charge overdraft fees if you have held funds but aren't actually overdrawn (like when you get gas and the station holds $100 in advance, but only charges the actual purchase amount). They have made MANY errors. But this... this is unbelievable. It's the last straw. The worst part is that the woman "helping" me doesn't seem to care, misinformed me and never apologized, and won't follow up on anything or return calls. She has MANY times insinuated that the error was my fault, and not a glitch in their system; despite there being no way I could have created the error. A week and MANY phone calls later I asked to speak to her supervisor; she said he would call me between 3:30 and 4, but he never called me. I am so done with them! As soon as my account is no longer held hostage to their error I am pulling EVERYTHING and switching to another credit union. I already have an account open and ready.

I spent all day yesterday sorting my murrini, and now... somehow... I have  misplaced the whole bag of them. About a pound of murrini. Worse yet, I can't finish today's project until I find them.  :x

At around 5, EFO came in and said "Mom. The front steps are covered in cones and there's a guy sitting there, just laughing."

Or Kill Me / ALL RIGHT, MOTHERFUCKERS

STOP USING A FUCKING SUBJUNCTIVE WHEN AN INDICATIVE IS CALLED FOR. OK, BITCHES???

JESUS MOTHERFUCKING DINGOES ON A POPCORN BUCKET, SAYING "WOULD BE" IN PLACE OF "IS" NOT ONLY DOESN'T MAKE YOU SOUND MORE EDUCATED, BUT IT DOESN'T EVEN FUCKING MAKE ANY SENSE.

IF YOU ARE RUNNING A BUSINESS AND THE ASSHOLE YOU PUT IN CHARGE OF YOUR WEBSITE PUTS SOME FUCKING RETARDED ASS BLITHERING ON THERE LIKE "THE BASIC ELEMENTS OF A BICYCLE WOULD BE A FRAME..." ETC. FUCKING FIRE THE MORON BEFORE HIS IDIOCY DESTROYS YOUR REPUTATION, YOUR BUSINESS, AND YOUR LIFE. BUT FIRST SET HIS FACE ON FIRE AND BEAT HIM WITH A COPPER PIPE, OK?

FUCK!

The Richard Nixon school of ballet and the arts / Another pet peeve
« on: September 25, 2010, 07:28:07 pm »
This one is with a particular conversation. It goes like this:

Childless person: "Hey, want to come to this marginal-sounding event tonight?"
Me: "Gee, thanks... but I'll be home with my children."
Childless person, smugly: "You see; that's why I didn't have kids, LOL"

What? The hell is that? No one has ever said to me "You see; that's why I don't have a sex life" when I've turned down an invitation because I had a date. It doesn't even make sense.

1. If I am genuinely bummed about missing the event (which 99% of the time I am not) that is a dick thing to say.

2. I am not bummed. The children are an all-purpose convenient excuse, and it's built right in to doing what I wanted to do anyway, which is stay home. If I'd wanted to go out, I would have made plans to go out. However, I don't want to go out. I want to hang out at home with my kids. I like my kids, and enjoy spending time with them. In fact, I went to significant lengths to acquire them in the first place, and I want to get to see them a little before they move out.

So when someone asks me if I want to go do something later on a day when I have kids, I have several factors I need to weigh. They go like this:

Will this get me laid? (Y/N)
Will this cost me money? (Y/N)
Will this make me money? (Y/N)
Is there free food? (Y/N)
Is this person a close friend I rarely get to see? (Y/N)
Do I have a social obligation which I can discharge by going? (Y/N)
Will this be more fun than hanging out with my kids? (Y/N)

If it weighs in heavily enough to my benefit, then I'll go. But most likely I won't, because I don't really want to.

There are a few people in my life who will be butthurt if I post this where they can see it, because they will (I know, it's weird) take it personally and interpret it as my saying that I like my kids better than I like them, and actually would rather spend time with my kids than with them. Which is true of almost everyone, but I never just outright say so because that would be rude. A lot of people assume that kids are just something that happens by default, kind of by accident, and that's true sometimes. Maybe a lot of the time. Not all of the time. Among our peer group of highly educated hipsters it's probably not even true very much of the time.

There are advantages to not having kids, advantages to not having friends, not having a boyfriend, not having a house, not having a career, not volunteering, not having anyone relying on you, not having responsibilities. Sure. These things are not for everyone, and many people make different decisions about their lives based on what's important to them. I would never tell anyone that they would be better off without something that is very important to them just because it gets in the way of my entertainment for an evening. It is like someone telling you that you should just drop that education thing because, man, it really gets in the way of their good time. There are advantages to not having to show up at class.

I had such a shitty day today that the only thing that made me feel better was looking at pictures of dormice and those baby meerkats Net posted. So, I decided to share the love, and made a FB page. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Things-that-are-cute/129764580405783

You like things that are cute, right? Help me fill it with shitloads of cute things. FUCK.

"The forum is ruined" because:

1. "You people aren't doing anything awesome, and what you're doing instead is stupid and worthless."

2. "Nobody joined in my thread/project, so you guys are assholes and suck. I'm deleting what I posted and never posting anything again."

3. "It got quiet in here; I guess nobody cares/the board is dead."

The Richard Nixon school of ballet and the arts / Urban Edibles
« on: September 01, 2010, 10:55:38 pm »
As a diehard scavenger, I have always availed myself of the riches of untended fruit trees and other easy-access free food sources in the city. Recently, a friend of mine who has the same mindset clued me in to this website: http://urbanedibles.org/

Does anyone else have something like this in their city? If not... why not start one using Google Maps?

Aneristic Illusions / Jury duty

I recently learned that in some jurisdictions, jury duty calls are selected by voting frequency.

Yet another excellent reason not to vote.
