Okay, this is just priceless. Now she's hidden the PS2.

You know, because she might have walked in on me rubbing it against my vaseline-coated body!

Dropped the bike in the rain today, with me underneath it. Hnnnrg.

My fault, I was being stupid and following too close. Now I get to replace my left side turn signals.

That's the thing about crash bars though, is that they make all the difference between $50 damage and no injuries to speak of, vs $1500 damage and getting squashed. Didn't rip up my jeans (I'm not a fashion whore, it's just impossible to find anything my size), didn't smash my phone (despite it being in my left pocket), didn't actually HIT the car I was braking to avoid... so not too bad.

It's 200 degrees at my house and the trees around here drop a thick yellow coat of pollen which I am highly allergic to. I keep my windows open to avoid cooking in my juices but the resultant allergen-induced bloody throat and 24/7 sinus headache are making Jack a very dull boy.

Do you live in Arizona? You can ski on the drifts of mesquite pollen we get around here.

The northern foothills of California.

I'm reallly a huge temperature pussy. I shiver in 60 degree weather and sweat when it hits 85.

I'm sure I'd be just fine with the damn windows closed but I'd rather suffer and bleed than feel mildly uncomfortable.

I will, however, say that it was terribly discourteous of her to look into a job offer for teaching in Korea that would require her to leave at the end of July, a fact I was informed of on Tuesday.

While the rest of the issues may be a result of her being beyond reason, this tidbit is something that is pretty normal for people such as myself.  Usually a month and a half notice is the minimum I would inform my roomie, under good conscience.

Bonus points if I get it to match with the beginning of a semester.

My brother, who works as a gas station attendant, at night and alone, was robbed at gunpoint last night. He's didn't get hurt, but still. I'm sure some of you live in places where you get shot at five times before breakfast, but to me the event is kind of surreal.

When he called his dumb bitch manager to get her to give the security tapes to the police, she didn't want to at first because it was late at night and she wanted to sleep.

Plus she made him finish his shift.

So: twenty minutes before I was scheduled to shut down the service desk and leave work last night, in walks a certain prominent member of a certain prominent local family.  Regardless of the family's reputation, they have a history of questionable dealings with the store.  (Items are returned to the store minus up to half their contents; presented identification is expired, out-of-state, or otherwise suspect; constant appeals to authority uninvolved in the transaction, etc.)  The usual song-and-dance routine ensues.  Thirty minutes after I was supposed to leave, I finally shut down the service desk and clock out for the day.

Half-way home, a state trooper pulls me over, because I'd forgotten that I still hadn't gotten new tags from the DMV.  On top of that, my insurance expired three weeks ago, so I get to pay two tickets instead of one.  At least I wasn't speeding.

I finally got to my house for the first time in a week (usually over at my girlfriend's or parents') only to discover that the internet's out for scheduled service.  So much for splatterhousen!

MY DAY

11:00: Wake up.  This sounds like I slept late, but I've been sick for the past couple weeks and basically hibernating.  I slept poorly last night and get up tired; I get up because I'm supposed to have a phone interview at 1:00.

1:00: Don't know if it's the cold or something I ate, but my intestines are screaming.  But I dare not go to the bathroom, because the phone's supposed to ring any minute.

1:20: Phone still has not rung.  Fuck this.  Grab latest issue of Booster Gold, destroy bathroom.

1:50: Call company to ask what happened to my interview.  My HR contact has gone home for the day and I don't know who I'm supposed to be interviewing with, so the receptionist can't help me.

2:00: E-Mail HR contact; ask to reschedule.

3:00: Go to do some menial work on one of grandparents' rental houses, seeing as I don't have a real job.  Scrub windows and blinds and screw faceplates back on outlets for several hours.  It's not that I think this kind of work is beneath me, but a big part of why I got my degree WAS so I'd never have to do it again.

The neighborhood is one of contrasts.  I can hear loud mariachi music coming from one person's front yard, and see the Confederate flag flying in another's backyard.

6:20: Go home, shower, start load of laundry.  Screw around on computer.

8:00: Phone call from girl I haven't spoken to in over a year (we've had E-Mail contact but she's been in Korea).  Nice, long conversation where we catch up.

8:40: Go to grandparents' for dinner.  Watch latest classic I have gotten from Netflix, The Wild One.

11:00: Come home.  Change laundry, feed cats, grab Fat Tire from fridge, sit down at computer.

12:30: Ban SoraCross.

...So actually, it was really only the FIRST half of my day that was a shit day; the last half was pretty awesome.  I'm going to call this one a wash.

My car's on fire, I'm stuck in LA, and I'm using a Mac.

Taken all together, these three circumstances make sense. But... I mean, why a mac?

Because the alternative is my mind.

Could be worse. You could be stuck with Gentoo or something.

I've only spent about 20 minutes in LA, and that was only at LAX, but still, I'm in no rush to go back. That place changes you, man.

My mother continued her angry, purposeless rant mode by getting in such a heated argument with my sister over the phone that it ended with Mom suffering a heart palpitation and passing out.

My sister decided that tending to my half-comatose mother instead of listening to her side of whatever fucking argument is (further) proof that her family hates her and wants her to die.

I am somehow expected, given the circumstances, to care.

When did my life turn into a fucking Jerry Springer marathon?

Is your mother okay? Sorry for the drama.
