Please don't tell me how to write my character. When I ask you for a very specific piece of factual knowledge, I do not want to hear how you think my character should behave in a tangential at best relationship to this knowledge.

No love,

I just went down to move my laundry from the washing machine to the dryer. When I got down to the laundry room, one of my socks was on the table in there. Stuff winds up on that table for one of two reasons: either it was left in one of the machines or found on the floor, and someone put it on the table for the owner to find.

But I didn't drop my sock. Because it was wet. And I know it was mine because there aren't many people who would wear knee-high lime green argyle socks (all of my socks are just this side of ridiculous). That, and when I moved my stuff over from the washer to the dryer, I only had one of my green socks in there.

So someone opened up my machine, took out a sock mid-cycle, and put in on the table.

Did you know that if you've ever kissed another guy, slapped his arse, or hugged/cuddled him, in any context, you are lying to yourself about your heterosexuality?


And women are totally allowed to make out and cuddle and still be called hetero. As are, apparently, men with a beta-male personality.

I just woke up covered in a blanket I didn't have when I went to sleep. Huh

So, no one bothered to communicate that Joe got off work at 11:30, rather than 7:30. So it's midnight. And we're on our way to Henderson.

I was just checking my messages, and I came across this in my inbox:

That's just mean. Not that this person defriended me -- I think we've all defriended people -- but that LJ thinks that it would be necessary to tell me. What is the logic in having LJ tell you that you've lost a reader?

It's a Dear John letter, sent to you by the best friend of your now-ex.

Dear Mr X,

Sorry, things weren't working out between the two of you. By the time you read this, she'll have moved on. To someone else's bed. Mine. But don't take it too hard, because it wasn't you; it was her. She found you too boring and irrelevant. I hope you understand.


Okay, so it's not quite as bad as that. I think this person has only commented on my stuff about once or twice. But it just seems really random that LJ feels it necessary to tell me that they defriended me. That's really not something that I really needed to know, I don't think. If I defriend someone at 12:30 at night without telling them, it's probably because I don't really feel like I know them well enough to tell them.

Unfortunately, LJ sees things differently. LJ seems to feel that we need to take the blow to our ego/self-esteem/whatever. Knock us down a peg, or something.

I don't know. TL;DR, it seems weird that LJ sent me this email. Also, that the first option is "defriend this person back" sort of cracks me up. "Oh, yeah? You don't like me any more? Well... well... I don't like you, either! Haha!"

So, I'm dealing with a commissioner from Canada. No big deal. I've dealt with people from all over the world.

This person is still in school. Again, not really worried since they just wanted a cartoon otter.

Since they're in school, they have to post the payment, rather than use PayPal. Again, fine. I tell them that in this case, I prefer something more insured than cash, like cashier's cheque, or a money order.

Here's where it gets fun. This person doesn't know what either of these things are. I explain what it is, how to get one, and why I prefer them to cash. This goes on for about 20 minutes, at which point they decide that this is too difficult, and that they'll have to send cash, and I tell them to just make sure to wrap it in a few pieces of printer paper.

Oh, wait. They don't know how to post something. I weep for this generation if they're so plugged in that they've never dropped an envelope in the postbox before.

I have a very strong suspicion that I'm not going to be paid for this piece.

Gotta take a minute to rant, here.

I've been going out more, lately; doing new things, spending time with actual people. Today, I even rode a Harley (which was neither as painful nor as loud as I'd expected it to be). Today, I hung out with a small group of people and made art. When I got home, I had to do some quick networking crap between the computers, because as it turns out, it's nigh on fucking impossible to set up a LAN between Vista and 7.

During this time, Ryan started to get really uppity with me, and went on about how it's "not fair" that I keep going out. My response to him was to go out with his friends more often. It seemed like the natural thing to say, right? I'm going out with my friends, so he can go out with his.

Only, apparently he doesn't WANT any friends. He just wants to go out.


No, seriously, what? I can understand needing personal space and everything, but that's a one-way ticket to Hermit Junction, really. WTF?

So, I'm kicking back, watching Peep Show, and a promo airs. For Star Trek: TNG.

I thought it was weird enough that BBCA played Star Trek: Generations the other night, but now this?

Don't get me wrong. I enjoy Star Trek very much. Hell, look at my profile ID. But I subscribe to BBCA because I want to see British programming. I can handle the shameless editing that goes into shows like Top Gear and Doctor Who, but why the hell are they playing Star Trek, instead of putting shows like QI and Casualty on the air? I can watch Star Trek on one of the many American channels I have and never watch because they all air the same four shows.

So, I sent Ryan out to Target today to fetch a few household things that we've been sort of just getting by without. Namely a drying pan/rack for dishes, and clothes hangers. He came back with hangers and some bed sheets (which we also sort of need, since all of ours are for a queen-sized bed, and we're getting on with a twin right now). But no drying pan. He texted me twice, saying that he couldn't find any, and apparently even asked the staff at the shop. Target does not carry them, apparently.

WTF? Does nobody do dishes by hand any more? Y'all have seen my kitchen. We couldn't fit a dish washing machine in there if we tried. We do that chore the old-fashioned way, and it's really annoying without a drying rack.

I need to go get some stuff for supper, and I'm gonna see if Vons has anything we can use for dishes. Because I'm bored with keeping a bath towel on the counter for dishes. D:

On an unrelated note, I'm mostly feeling better. Some of you have heard by now of my adventures with my neighbour's boiler being right next to my bedroom, causing a serious fucking rash. For those that don't know, heat rash is a horrible, horrible thing, and I hate it, and I smell like three types of medicated skin cream and had to shave my head because it got ON MY SCALP. There was a point when wearing clothes caused serious physical pain, so it was either wear a dressing gown and and weep, or not wear anything and be freezing, which also sort of hurts after a while.

So, yay! Clothes! I could do without all the aloe goo on my head, though.

We all remember Joe, right? The 40-year-old child that threw a bitch fit last summer.

Oh, my god, this man is starting to really creep me out. I tried breaking up with him. He didn't get the point. I've tried cutting him out, and he didn't get the point.

Now he's sending me copies of his tweets via text message, "IN CASE I'VE MISSED THEM."

What the ever-loving FUCK is this? This is worse than when he watched everybody on my Twitter feed and LJ F-List. Marginally so, but still.

I feel kinda violated.
