I still can't FUCKING COMMENT on the FUCKING NEWS community. Even with my desktop computer. Was hoping it just wouldn't work with my Android phone.

We don't need a fucking PATCH.
Take out the ALL of the NEW CODE. Ya know, the fucking code that doesn't fucking WORK.
And replace with ALL of the OLD CODE. Ya know, the fucking code that fucking worked.

AND THIS FONT SUCKS DONKEY BALLS. Seriously. It makes my head hurt. I feel so sorry for people with migraine issues.

I am such a sheep. baaaah.

* reply to this post with "Stop, fast-forward, rewind" and I will pick six of your icons.
* make a post (including this info) and talk about the icons I chose.
* other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
* this will create a never ending cycle of icon glee.

These are the six that rowan_d picked.
Okay, so ended up doing an lj-cut because I rambled. A lot. SHOCKER!Collapse )

My reading of books has fallen off quite a bit the last few years. Never thought that would happen. *blinks*

I have, however, found the wonder of audiobooks, made all the better by being able to download
them to my iPod. Makes for fun driving times. :D

So now shall try and copy those on my flist that do the book list things, though not sure how well I'll stick with it.

And now for the books I've <s>read</s> listened to so far this year.Collapse )

Wow, I suck at keeping this here journal updated. :/

So, life has been moving on. I started working the day shift M-F a couple weeks ago and when the Desk Officer retires in a couple months will be taking over his duties. In some ways I miss the graveyard shift, but having weekends again will be cool. Is cool. Whatever.
My supervisor also told me the other day that he's been in this line of work for 30 years and I'm the best worker he's ever had. O.O
That...is just a little bit daunting. Don't feel like I'm doing anything special, just my job. *shrug*

Ummm, what else...Roping has been going well, which is the good part about having weekends off - will be able to go to jackpots and stuff a lot easier.

The newest thing is that I had my wisdom teeth pulled yesterday. I went the I.V. route and slept through the whole thing. Wheeee!
Actually feel pretty good. That is, until just a bit ago when I got on the computer. First time I've felt slightly nauseous and even feel shaky and light headed. Makes it hard to catch up on stuff. SUCKY.

I'm currently looking for a car. Oh, could fix my '81 Corolla (it does have low miles) but...it's butt ugly. And with no power steering, a bitch to drive in town and/or parking lots.
Did I mention it was ugly? It's ugly. I want something fun. Something that looks cool.

For me, that basically means a Honda Civic or Accord, or an Acura Integra and in the mid '90s for the year. Not only for price range, but those years are actually my favorite body style. The newer ones? Blech.
Maybe a Toyota Celica, depending on the year. Maybe a VW Jetta or Passat, but am a bit leery of those because they're more expensive to work on.

Am going to pay cash (no payments FTW! and lower insurance as well), so that does limit how much I'll spend, and want kinda low miles. Really don't want more than 160k, but not firm on that.
Oh, and it can't be red. Yuck.
Being able to drive Mom's car for now means I'm not in a hurry, so can be picky. Whew. LOL

Aaaanyway, part of the point of this pointless post is to bitch.
There's this 98 Honda Accord LX that meets much of my criteria. Definitely higher miles than I want at 195K, but my mechanic is very good and very thorough when he's checking over a car, so I trust he'd find something major.

Here's the thing - they're asking $3450 firm. That make with that style (LX) with those miles bluebooks for private retail at $2765 for a car in excellent condition. Good is $2415 and Fair is $1890.
They also say that "this is a solid honda selling cheap cause of miles 195k" and "At this price it wont last long!"
Cheap?!? This price?!? I was unaware that a thousand dollars over blue book value was cheap. Silly me.
Oh, and as for it not lasting long? This ad was up last week; guess it's not selling so fast after all. Wonder why...

Senator Wyden effectively kills Internet censorship bill.

Yes! That is some damn nice news there. For a change, eh?

A few weeks ago, I sent an email asking my senators to support the...damn, can't remember the bills exactly. But one of them is to allow same-sex partners the same immigration status that married couples get, the whole marry and your non-resident spouse can come to the U.S. thing.

Anyway, just got an email back from Wyden saying he does support that, and has in fact worked on the bill with the senator from Vermont. deleted the email instead of archiving it; not very smart of me.</i>

Two cool pieces of political news in one day. Kind of unusual, but I'll take it.

LJ has managed to fail yet again.
So today's Writer's Block question is "If you could cast one type of magic spell, which would you choose, and why?"

Where's the fail, you say? It is in the original question: "If you were the TSA at Hogwarts, which Harry Potter character would you pat down, and why?"

What the ever loving fuck where they thinking? I don't care that they are fictional characters. The question is basically "if you were in a position of authority, who would you sexually assault" and that is not okay. EVER.

It is certainly not okay when this is a thing that is ACTUALLY HAPPENING to people.
