Giving opium to babies was a great idea. We should revive the practice. Now. So that I can actually get to sleep. *grumble* bloody thin walls *grumble*

Can I just ask a question? How ignorant, how arrogant, how monumentally self-absorbed do you have to be to get mad at someone with clinical depression for being pessimistic?

Technology fucking hates me.

The fact that the Recovery Disc Creator on this POC computer runs into at least one error every time I try to run it really does not bode well. It also wastes a remarkable number of blank discs. Managing to get the first ten (out of 12) burned successfully, and then having to restart from the beginning...let's just say that it's a good thing none of my blades are in reach. I want to kill someone. I really want to kill someone. Preferably the last person to own this computer.

ETA: According to Ace, I can probably make do with just the first ten discs. So no computer-stabby for me. ^_^

Ace and Julie are in the living room right now, watching DVDs, so I've holed myself up in their room until further notice. (Further notice being at least untill I stop shaking.) I love them both, but I cannot deal with being stuck in close proximity with another person all friggin' day. Literally. Can't. It's not that I don't want too, it's that I start freaking out due to the stress. I really need my own room. But that ain't happening anytime soon. *sigh* I'm really not sure what to do, except be grateful for the fact that Julie works most of the week. Maybe start hanging out in their closet.

Oh, and a bit of free advice- A) Don't ask questions if you're gonna get snippy about the answer, and B) if someone is shaking so hard they can barely stand, that's probably not the time to expect them to be tactful. Just a hint. >_

It's a lovely day, all nice and sunny, and I'm stuck in bed with a laptop and a heating pad. Yeah...it's that time of month. Friggin' biology.

Aaaand my CD player quit on me. Go. Fucking. Figure. I'm tempted to use a gun on this one.

In other news- I'm broke, my air mattress has multiple holes in it, the Bellingham job market sucks right now, and I can't even sell plasma because I've been too nervous about getting my friggin' blood pressure taken. (They test your blood pressure and pulse before they allow you to donate. If it's too high, you're deferred for the day. Apparently, a pulse rate of 150 Bpm is too high. Yeah...) And that's not even touching the various and sundry issues with my roommates. *sigh*

On the other hand, I finally got around to killing the Hell Wyrm on FFXII. So that's something.

This post brought to you by a Southern California native who's just experienced her first real snowstorm. And was stuck outside in same while waiting for the bus. Me and Ace were meeting Julie at the mall earlier today and missed the last 540. This necessitated about a 30 minute walk to Haggens and the stop for the 331. On the way, it started snowing. Snow, when blown into ones eyes, is surprisingly painful. Fortunately, we were all able to take a cab home.

In other news, Ace starts working at Little Caesar's on Monday. Free (okay, discount) pizza FTW! And crazy bread. Can't forget the crazy bread.

It's wet, cold, and we're probably gonna get snow over the weekend. I'm not used to this. *huddles under blanket* I miss summer. And heat. And not being constantly hungry because of how much energy it takes to say warm. *sigh* Friggin' northern winters.

I miss my computer. Jay's computer died. Seriously, it refused to turn on. Fortunately, he had recently backed up all of his files, but still. At least Ace managed to get his laptop working, so we've got internet. Unfortunately, the power cord sucks. How badly does it suck? Well, right now, I'm literally holding the friggin' thing in place so that it can charge. Somehow, I don't think this is what people are referring to when they use the phrase "one-handed typist".

Anyway...people are saying this is shaping up to be an unusually cold fall/winter. Oh. Goody. I'm going to freeze.

Yay! Ace got the power cord working again! I can write with both hands! Nevermind. *screws with cord* Stay...stay...okay...good power cord.

Ahem! On topic. Wait- did I have a topic?

One of Kandi's co-workers might be moving in temporarily. I'm in favor, partly because I have sympathy for her situation, and partly because we're having financial issues and she'd help with the rent. Which is good, because I don't want to have to sell plasma. (Though I might end up doing that anyway. Get something to set aside.)

Ace picked up his copy of Dynasty Warriors 6 today, and has been playing since he got home. I'm told he managed to avoid doing a happy-dance until after he'd left the GameStop. He's cute when he's giddy.

Today was actually a fairly nice day. As in, not rainy, and not (too) cold. Would have been nicer if I hadn't temporarily lost my ability to filter sounds. See, I'm prone to migraines, but more than that, I'm prone to any and all of my senses randomly screwing with me. This is usually accomplished by going into hypersensitive mode. Today, I had a period of a few hours where I could not tune out background noises. It wasn't that anything seemed louder, I just couldn't ignore it. Someone scraping their feet on the sidewalk was enough to set my teeth on edge. Not fun. Not fun at all. If and when I get medical insurance, I should probably get these things checked out.

On a mostly unrelated note, I've actually discovered something I miss about San Bernardino. (BTW, Firefox doesn't recognize San Bernardino as a valid word. This amuses me.) The food banks. That actually provide decent amounts of food. (Seriously. The amount we get is gone halfway through the week.) And don't have condescending staff who assume I don't know that coffee creamer goes into coffee. *sigh*

I need to call Nana again soon. See how she and the cats are doing. But right now, I'm going waste more time on the interwebs. Ciao!

In case anyone was wondering, no, I'm not dead. It's been pretty hectic lately, though. The assignment at TOP ended (friggin' temp agencies) so I've been looking for a new job. Ace and Julie are also job hunting, mostly because ten-hour shifts get really draining after a while. In between that,looking for an apartment, and the various illnesses that have been going around, we've kinda been at each others throats for the past few weeks. Five highly neurotic, and very stressed out people sharing one room does not make for happy fun times.

On the other hand, I've expanded my book collection. I've bought the first nine books in The Dresden Files, Failed States and Imperial Ambitions by Noam Chomsky, and The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins. I also bought a few new CDs. Having an income is nice. And having something to read keeps me from killing things. (Like my old CD player. The less said about that, the better.)
