Friend, I do not have a "Racist Mind" if I think the little Raccoon statue with a giant jug of hooch with a confederate flag stamped across is not exactly kosher.

Seriously, a Raccoon?

pleasepleasepleasepleaseplease stop questioning my decision to go to another high school for my senior year. I know the reasons I gave you aren't exactly sound, but I can't tell you the real reason, and it would be a bad idea for me to tell you I have a good one even if I don't tell you what it is. *worry*

^ I can relate.

It makes me cringe whenever someone says a variant of "I'd kill myself if ________" ... I'm not necessarily offended, and it only really hits me emotionally if I'm in a bad mood anyway, but it think it contributes to our culture's tendency to take suicide lightly. That and the whole "suicide is selfish" mantra.

high school rants, for funsies:

high school, I should graduate you sometime. BUT ALAS, that will have to be after my second semester in college begins.
Alternatively, take the next G.E.D. test cause I need SOMETHING before SOMEONE at this school figures out that I've been guiltily gaming the system.

What an awesome start to the work day. I get to be verbally attacked and yelled at as a proxy for the person they're really mad at. Yes, we have an issue. Yelling at me about it is not going to help. You're just looking like an ass in front of coworkers, and pissing me off.

Please stop being wankstains, I need be on my feet for at least 6 hours a day at work, and I'm trying to take up jogging. Pain and wobbliness is not helping.

If there was a way for a computer to say FUCK YOU, with emphasis, I'm pretty sure mine just did it.

3 SSDs, gone. $500 of equipment poofed within 30 seconds of powered on.

AND I JUST GOT YOU A SHINY NEW WATER LOOP YOU BITCH!

HDDs are fine though, and I had a system image from sunday... but... WTF. I'm wondering if I should be installing my old PSU (2 different brands of SSD, on different cords from the PSU). And now I have to try and RMA them... I guess... GAHHHHHHHHHHHHH

I have to rant about sleep again. I have been up way super late every single night for months because I can't bring myself to drop whatever it is I'm doing and go to sleep. It's seemingly impossible for me to convince myself that it's important that I sleep when I should be doing it. It's plenty easy in the morning though :evil:

Good to know that the RC helicopter might be not as fragile as it looked. Dad can't get out and play with it just yet, being recently (Jan 5) surgeried in the heart and thus healing a new chestgash. ( :shock: ) I'm sure he'll be out in a nearby field (the folks live out in 'burbs-past-the-'burbs) as soon as he's able.

And today's rant:

FIRE FIRE SET THE WHOLE GODDAMN PROJECT ON FIRE AND EVERYONE WHO EVER DID ANYTHING TO FUCK UP THESE THINGS THAT I KEEP TRIPPING OVER SET THEM ON FIRE TOO OH GOD JUST GIVE UP AND SET THE WHOLE DAMN CITY ON FIRE FUCK IT FUCK IT FUCK IT

So I was about to sig an awesome quote by Jahoclave, and then I read another awesome quote by Jahoclave. So then I'm trying to decide which one to sig, and lo and behold - another awesome quote by Jahoclave. I give up. My sig remains unchanged. DAMN YOU JAHOCLAVE, YOU ARE TOO AWESOME TO SIG!

Also I wish I could swear like Poxic. Maybe I should sig me some of that...

I was so tired last night, that I figured I'd sleep in. I've gone months without ever being awakened by anything, and this night when I really need some sleep, I get awakened not one, but FOUR times by people calling, and other crap going on in my apartment.
I edit my posts a lot and sometimes the words wrong order words appear in sentences get messed up.

This post made me contemplate designing a special sort of answering machine that, instead of letting the phone ring on the receiving end, immediately "picks up" and plays a horribly dissonant shriek - volume turned not to ten, not to eleven, but to twelve - so that the caller will suffer from tinnitus for several hours after the attempted phone call.

Also, for the door bell, drill a tiny hole in the button, and behind this hole, place a fixed, razor-sharp needle, so that when someone pushes the button, ze stabs hirself in the finger. Possibly dab some irritant (e.g. concentrated capsaicin) onto the needle, so that the effect will have a greater duration.

Edit: of course, I'm not going to actually do that, and I highly suggest nobody else does so. It's all purely hypothetical.

Newer software isn't always the best software:

  • New version of Flash plugin on Linux doesn't store the cached video files conveniently into /tmp anymore. Bleh.
  • Current version of Chromium (well I haven't updated in a day or two but...) doesn't show the target URL anymore at all. What the fuck?!
  • Also, some JavaScript things used to not work but were then fixed. Now not fixed anymore.

Edit: And I don't mind getting advise regarding these things, by the way.

So I used to think the team I'm in at work (about 10 of us) is pretty awesome. Actually, no, I still do think that. But just before Christmas two of the team members were made redundant, plus we're quite spread out geographically, and there are a range of different people (ages, personalities, &c.).

At the start of this year a new group moved into the office near my desk - and I guess it's partly because they're all keen and enthusiastic, but they're always going off for team events, and heading back the pub together after work, and I know it's great for them and they're not doing it to be annoying, but it just makes me irritated that there's no way that kind of thing would work in my team. We're lucky if we can all get in the same room at the same time twice a year, and even then some people won't want to go out or join in for some (quite reasonable) reason or other. Don't get me wrong, I love the group, I just didn't realise how much I wanted to have that 'young dynamic team' thing going - it reminds me of uni, I guess :?

Dear personal biology,

You know what's not fun? DKA. You know what's also not fun? DKA with proper numbers. You know what's even more not fun? DKA with proper numbers with a head ache that's been taking its sweet time over the past few days to become a full blown migraine. You know what's even less fun than that? DKA with proper numbers with a head ache that's been taking its sweet time over the past few days to become a full blown migraine and not responding properly to medication.

You're not being cool. Fix ASAP.

No love,
Mocha

How fucking long does it take to send a goddamn e-mail? It'll be a week tomorrow since I asked for a counselling appointment and it not only pisses me off that you couldn't just look up free slots there and then, but you also insisted that you would e-mail me as soon as I had an appointment confirmed. It's been six fucking days! You should know when you can give me an appointment by now!

yesterday made me feel happy. I was surrounded by good friends for over six hours, and then people I didn't know (but still pleasant people) for about three hours.

That was the only good thing that has happened this year.

And what happened now made that go away.

Dear BBC America,

You're an American network that plays British television shows. This is what you are. This is what you do. Don't fucking insult your viewership's collective intelligence by playing commercials for Law & Order: UK that assume that we don't know even a tiny bit about the differences between British and American vernaculars. Stop acting like it's the only genuinely British show on your network.

Thanks.

So I was playing a video game online with my sister and some random person. I was really enjoying it, we were talking over vent, just rolling along. Then "Holy fuck it's 1:30[PM]?" I'm late for work. I panic, run around trying to get ready, trying to get showered, thinking over and over - how did this happen? What can I tell my boss? Shit, he's been in a pissy mood lately, how bad is this going to be? Fuck, can I fake an illness? I would have still called in if I was sick though. Shit, shit, shit.

Then I woke up. What a wonderful way to start a weekend. Waking up pissed off, scared, and panicked.
