Dear Whoever You Are:

Thank you so much for not letting me in today. I really liked how you camped out right by my bumper so that I couldn't change lanes. Also, working on the computer while going 70 miles per hour? What a wonderful idea! I'll have to try not paying attention to the road sometime too. It sounds like a lot of fun.

No Love,
[ profile] nekosensei

Seriously. I had three people in a row not let me into the middle lane today. What's up with all the jack-tards drivers this afternoon?

Hopefully by now, most of you have heard about Amazon Fail. Long story short, Amazon has removed sales rankings from books that deal with LGBT issues or that have homosexual characters. What's worse is that these books are no longer picked up on searches. When you do a search for "homosexuality," books that take an anti-homosexual stance are the top results. WTF??

Needless to say, if Amazon does not correct the problem and issue an apology, I will no longer be doing business with them.

Here's Amazon's blog. You know what to do. Go complain. (Many thanks to both [ profile] rm and [ profile] vashtan for that one).

And now it's time for a Google bomb! Amazon Rank, your morons!

Adopt one today!Adopt one today!

[ profile] doomsey and I were on our way to meet up with his folks at an Italian restaurant in our suburb's downtown. I had stopped for a stop sign, and it was my turn to go when, all of a sudden, I had to hit the brakes again to avoid a really stupid bicyclist. This bicyclist must have really wanted to get himself maimed or killed. Let's count the ways: 1) it was getting dark as it was around dusk; 2) he was wearing dark clothing; 3) he had no reflectors on his bike; 4) he blew through a stop sign (he's lucky I saw him moving out of the corner of my eye otherwise he would have become well acquainted with my front end);
5) there were at least two or three cars stopped at the intersection.

And to top it all off, as he was careening through the intersection, he waved at all the cars as he went by as if that would help us see him better as he shot down the road in the dark whilst ignoring all traffic rules.


And while we're on the topic of dumb bicyclists, why is it that the stupid ones always aggregate on that street? About two years ago, I almost hit someone two blocks further down. This particular individual thought it would be cute to bicycle on the wrong side of the street. I was pulling out of an alley that led to a parking garage, and all of a sudden, I had to slam on the brakes because this guy appeared out of nowhere from behind a parked car. And then he had the nerve to get angry at me, block me in, and pound on the hood of my car! I had to threaten to call the police on him to get him to leave me alone. That dude was crazy.

I watched two episodes this evening. Very skeery. So far...I like it.

By the way, I think I might have a morbid streak. I spend way too much time laughing at the stupid people who should be collecting themselves a Darwin Award on Lost. I'm about five or six episodes into it, and I'm a bit surprised that a couple of the more "intelligence-challenged" characters are still alive.

Oh...and I'm calling the bullshit card on the whole John Locke getting out of his wheelchair storyline...

-Being dragged out to dinner in the city yesterday evening when my neck was getting sore (especially after my physical therapist told me to find out where my limits are and to not cross them so the muscles in my neck can start healing) = Not very cool.

-Having [ profile] doomsey almost crash my little red Prius by not putting the car in park, getting out of the car, and then handing the key to the valet = Very very bad. I assure you that, if he had crashed it, there would have been lots and lots of yelling...and maybe a couple of wacks with the purse for good measure too...

Yesterday night, I decided at some point in my Ambien riddiled mind that it would be a good idea to go out for a walk. Actually, it was kind of cool because everything was pretty and I didn't care whether anything hurt or not. At some point, [ profile] doomsey showed up to collect me and take me back home. I had probably gotten a couple of blocks or so. It's a shame...It's probably been three weeks since I've had a good walk for myself...

And yes, you don't have to lecture me on how dangerous that was. [ profile] doomsey already told me this morning. Actually, he had taken Ambien himself last night and he said that, if I was too far away and he couldn't catch up with me, he would have had to call the police to bring me back home. I wonder if they would have just dragged me home or arrested me for public intoxication or something.

I would have loved to have called the cops on two people today. I was on the expressway heading into work when I saw a green pickup, which was originally in the middle lane, cut off a white Subaru in the left-hand lane. The guy in the White Subaru got pissed off, went into the middle lane, and then cut off the green pick-up in the left lane in order to get back at the guy. The asshole driving the green pick-up truck retailated. He went into the breakdown lane on the left hand side, and then cut off the White Subaru, who was in the left lane. After I saw that, I figured that, if things had continued like that, someone could have been hurt or killed. I would have called the cops, but I didn't have 9-11 on speed dial and, the way bluetooth was set up, the car wouldn't let me dial when I was driving. Unfortunately, I had my phone in my purse and couldn't get it out.

Fortunately, they both decided to knock if off. The guy in the green pickup got off the expressway and the white Subaru went on his way without further incident.

Hmm...maybe I do need that rocket-launcher that [ profile] lucy_burb mentioned in one of my posts about stupid drivers. Today, I had someone try to cut me off by turning left in front of me. Then, he stopped and screamed at me for being in his way when I was going straight and clearly had right of way. I guess I was supposed to slam on my breaks in the middle of a four lane road and just let him go, huh? Since I have very little patience with stupid people nowadays, he got the middle finger salute.

I'm sick and tired of people who bitch me out merely because I'm stopping at stop signs or following traffic rules like I'm supposed to. Sorry...I'm not wrecking my new car because they're in too much of a hurry.

You know...I need a microphone instead of a carn horn so I can make sarcastic comments about stupid drivers and people with attitude problems.

Don't hit on me. Even worse, don't hit on me when I'm in a bad mood and not feeling well. Don't say, "You look nice today." Oh...and when you're helping me put grocery bags in the car (when I didn't even ask for your help in the first place) don't tell me that you "-love- helping me out." Say something like that again and I'm going to "-love- planting my foot squarely up your ass." Your advances are not welcome. Oh...and don't act all surprised when I look creeped out by your advances. Seriously, do that again and you're not going to like what I'm going to say to you.

Some men are fucking idiots.

This is the email I sent to L.L. Bean's customer service:

To Whom It May Concern:

This is the dumbest email I've ever sent, but I'm going to go ahead and write it anyway. About a year ago, I bought a bookmark that I believe was made out of cherrywood from your outlet store in Freeport, Maine. It had the shape of a cat in the middle. Here is a picture of the broken bookmark. I was in the area for a wedding and bought it as a souvenir. I am an avid reader and used the bookmark over the past year. I particularly liked the smell. This evening, I got clumsy and broke it. I looked to see if I could get another one, but I couldn't find it on your website. Do you still make them and sell them at your outlet store? If so, would you be able to sell me another one?

Yesterday afternoon was, well, interesting. I managed to stuff both furballs downstairs. One of them I had to chase and aggravated my knee in the process. *glowers at the furball* There is going to be a cat macro coming from this, I assure you.

Soon after I posted about the tornado warning, the power went out and the wind picked up. I ended up sitting on the couch in the basement holding the "good cat" and thinking, "Please don't let 'da tree fall on 'da house. Please don't let 'da tree fall on 'da house." We have a huge maple tree in front of our house that saves us money on our air conditioning because it shades the house so well. Our only major concern is that it will fall during a storm and land on our house, which would cause a lot of damage. Fortunately, the tree did not fall on the house.

We still don't have any power. I talked to the neighbors and they said that, the last time they lost power in a storm this bad, it took them three days for it to go on again. Right now, I am at my in-law's house working on laundry that I had started before the storm hit. Fortunately, the washer stopped right in the middle of two cycles, so I didn't have to fish wet clothes out of the washer. That was incredibly lucky.

Our neighbors had a generator we would have been able to use to keep our refrigerator or freezer working, but another asshat neighbor borrowed it without the owner's permission. He then proceeded to put gas for a snowblower in it, which completely gunked up the motor. They tried all of last night to clean it out and get it working again, but they couldn't get it running. I sat and held a flashlight, but I wasn't of much help since I know shit about how motors work. Now...because a certain individual couldn't wait a few hours before our neighbor got home, we're all SOL. Moron.

We also didn't get any property damage. There's no wind damage and no flooding. We did have a number of sizeable tree limbs come down. I think areas around a half a mile to a mile south of us got the worst of it though. Especially the area around our town's hospital. As I was driving to my in-law's house, I saw a couple of trees that had fallen onto houses. In fact, on just one street, I saw two houses with trees on them. I feel so bad for their owners.

Anyhow, off to catch up with the rest of the friends list. After this afternoon, my internet connection is going to be sporadic for the next day or two.

[Edit: Another unrelated problem is that my email is not working. [ profile] doomsey and friends have been having some problems with the machine our email is on. The last I heard, a part had broken and needed to be replaced.]

I was knitting again today so of course that meant that I was watching Discovery Channel. They seem to be in the middle of their Shark Week programming. In the last show I watched, three people-- we'll call them Huey, Duey, and Luey-- who decided that it would be a good idea to go swimming with Great White Sharks without a cage. At one point, they were interviewing Duey, who stated that all of his family and friends thought he was nuts. My reply to the television: "That's because you are!" At any rate, I kept watching the show hoping that someone would pull a Steve Irwin or, in other words, get eaten. I'm kind of morbid like that. At one point, Huey decided it would be a great idea to see if he can ride on a shark's back. Bloody brilliant! Too bad I didn't get to watch what became of that folly.

*doing her best Steve Irwin impression* "Crickey! It's a Great White Shark! Let's get a closer look, mates, and see what she does!"

[ profile] doomsey said this one after he saw a guy biking without a helmet. We were headed back after having eaten a lot of sushi. I think these are his exact words, but I'm not sure:

"If you're going to use your hair as a helmet, if would be good if you had some."

Today, I was knitting my blanket and watching Discovery Channel. Recently, I found out that I tend to knit longer when I'm watching tv, probably because I don't get bored as quickly. You also don't have to pay very much attention to shows on Discovery Channel or CNN to get the gist. You can just listen and then look up when you hear something interesting.

As I was working on the last few lines, a show came on about a scientist-- who had swam with sharks for years-- got bit by one. The narrator then proceeded to say that, in that show, they were going to investigate how and why he got bitten. You know, I don't think you need a one hour show in order to investigate this. It can be summed up in two simple sentences. You were standing in waist deep water that was full of bull sharks. One of them was hungry and decided that they might have a nip. QED.

How does getting up to go to the bathroom and then turning up the air filter in my room-- after the person who it usually annoys is up for the day-- constitute giving someone a hard time? (Oh...and turning up the air filter helps me get back to sleep because of the white noise and the breeze that blows on me). Someone please explain this to me. I don't get it. And I really resent getting blamed for being clumsy when I don't have my glasses on and I'm only half awake when I do head over to the bathroom. And, whatever you do, don't harrass me when I'm tired and trying to get back to sleep and continue to do so after I tell you to please leave me alone. That's a sure fire way to make me mad and start giving you a hard time for real.

I'm tired, sniffly, headachey, and cranky. I also have a lot to do today. I needed this today like I needed a hole in my fucking head...

And the cat just bit me this morning...hard. Anybody else who wants to give me a hard time can go fuck themselves. I really don't want to deal with you today.

Heh heh...

Well, someone saw the light and unbanned me. Them unbanning cat killer and then keeping me banned until I royally complained was the final straw. I was pretty much seeing red the entire evening because of it. At any rate, I'm not going back there. Between not warning me, not informing me I was banned, and not explaining why, I think they handled the entire thing pretty poorly.

I joined a Buffy community instead. At least they won't fill up my friend's page with cat food posts five times a day... And this means more Buffy icons. *smirk*

They unbanned cat killer. And she's complaining about me. Guess who is still banned?
nekosensei: (Default)
Why, God? Why?

So...what exactly were they trying to accomplish?
