Something stupid of all things tonight reminded me how badly I want to quit living with my in-laws. Not that I don't appreciate all the help that they've given us, but now we live with them and pay them a form of rent (about 450 a month) because it helps them out since his mom is out of a job.

I don't mind helping out, but there's no end in sight. Today I got agitated because I went to make myself a sandwich for dinner thinking that there was a loaf of french bread in the kitchen, but it had apparently been eaten in less than twenty-four hours. I can't depend on anything actually BEING in the kitchen when I go for it.

Just...UGH. I feel like I sound like an ingrate, but sometimes I just need to vent some. Plus, I'm getting to the point where I'm really needing my space. *sigh*

Think I'll go to bed early tonight.

Why You Shouldn't Blow Up an Xbox
Angry Puppet
angelique5666
When I clicked on this Yahoo news story, I was expecting another Youtube video of a girl destroying her boyfriend's Xbox, but was surprised to see some set up nonsense that including blowing an Xbox up. Still, it brought something to mind that I had to chat about.

If you go on Youtube and type in something like 'girlfriend destroys Xbox,' you'll get tons of videos of girls saying that they are tired of their boyfriend playing video games for hours and ignoring them, and then break apart the Xbox, Playstation, Wii, whatever. (Xbox is almost a generic term, but I'm sure you can find video of all three.) While I love wanton destruction as much as the next person (probably more, if I'm honest with myself), it's all really quite silly.

To give you some perspective, my husband of over three years is a gamer, a big time one, really. Most of his stuff is over the computer (he's a WoW fanatic, among other games), but he has a PS3 and we used to have an Xbox until the disc drive died. Either way, he's usually on one of those things. And, really, I'm glad. It gives him a way to unwind after work and I get to have my own hobbies.

What's that? I'm not desperate to have him up my ass all the time? Well, no! I have things I like to do as well. When the hubby is playing his stuff, I'm either roleplaying online, playing the Sims 3, reading, watching TV, or maybe even going outside and going somewhere! I might get irritated if he gets wrapped up in something when he's supposed to take out the garbage or take the dog to the bathroom, but it's a minor inconvenience, not a meltdown.

Ladies, you aren't doing your fellow females any favors by destroying gaming systems in a fit of firey woman rage. Sure, you get the high of breaking something into tiny pieces, but then what? You have one really pissed off boyfriend that, if he has any self respect, is going to break up with you for being a psychopath. Who's to say that you won't take that hammer to his head next time? Also, if he's particularly vindictive (and let's face it, most are), he could have you arrested for vandalism. Those gaming systems that look like a hunk of plastic to you? Yeah, they aren't cheap.

So ladies, the next time that you get angry at your boyfriend playing Xbox instead of paying attention to you, don't pick up the hammer. Pick up the car keys and go out! Pick up a book and enjoy yourself! Ask him to teach you how to play! If you end up liking it, then you even have a hobby you can enjoy together.

Also, if you really cannot handle a man enjoying video games rather than being by your side all the time, well, you may need a different kind of man. Instead of breaking the Xbox, break up with him. Let him go find a gamer girlfriend, or at least someone with enough self confidence that she doesn't need to be babysat by her boyfriend all the time, and you can go find what you need as well!

Today, while taking a Civil Service test (the Professional Entry Test, for those that care), I saw a motivational poster that said the following:

I think I will let the great George Takei explain how I feel about that.



You know who gets to say that? PEOPLE WHO HAVE ALREADY FUCKING GOT TO THE DESTINATION OF SUCCESS AND SET UP HOUSE!!! FUCK YOU OPTIMISTIC FUCKERS!!!

That is all.

Also, I am no longer allowing myself to go anywhere I haven't been before without an escort. This week, I have gotten lost THREE TIMES on my own. I am officially an idiot.

I love my in-laws. They are the shiznit. They've been letting me live here with Brian since JULY rent free. The main thing they want us to do now that Brian has his badass job is to save up and pay our student loan payments ourselves so that we can buy a home in a year or so. They rock.

However....

WHOMEVER KEEPS LEAVING THE KITCHEN IN SUCH A PIGSTY IS GONNA FUCKING DIE!!! ON WHAT FUCKING PLANET IS IT OK TO LEAVE A JAR OF STRAWBERRY JELLY OPEN, SITTING ON THE COUNTER, SPOON STILL INSIDE???? WHO THE HELL DOES THAT???

I'm not sure that I mentioned it on here, but I have mentioned it all over Facebook, but Brian has a job now. There was much yaying going on.

Today is his first day. Total rocket ship. Also, him being at work gives me the energy to really do stuff around our little apartment-ish area. For the first time in the LONGEST time (longer than I'd really like to go into), I cleaned the bathroom from top to bottom. Like, swept and swiffer mopped, even. The swiffer mop was NASTY when I was done with it.

I'd rather have a job right now, but if I'm gonna be a housewife, then I'm gonna do it RIGHT, thank you.

If only I could cook.

Gay Parents May Make Better Parents

These are people who go through HELL trying to adopt a kid. Who's to say that they wouldn't love the kid every bit as much as a hetero couple?

And, secret time? I wished when I was a kid to have two dads. NO idea where that came from. Maybe because I had an awesome gay uncle? But I always thought that would have been awesome.

Cult Film List

You know, I'm no film expert, but I define a 'cult firm' as something that didn't get the credit it deserved when it came out, but later got a huge following. It's something that's still required to be *good* in some way. I know your opinion may not go with mine, but does 'Star Wars' really belong on this list? I mean, was there EVER a time when it wasn't appreciated in some way?

Also, 'The Room' can never really be considered *good.* Hilarious? Yes. Awesome to watch? Sure. But good? Not in the least.

'Fight Club,' while good, isn't quite the life changing experience that some people claim it to be.

No one can ever convince me that '2001: A Space odyssey' is anything but a bad drug trip. Since I had stopped taking hallucinogens when I saw it (it was also during a class, where it's traditionally frowned upon coming whacked out of your brain), it kinda sucked.

One that I *do* agree with that I'm surprised to see on this list is 'Cannibal Holocaust.' The movie is disturbing and visceral, and REALLY hard to watch at the end, but it's the start of the 'found footage' genre. 'Blair Witch Project' wouldn't exist without it, as much as we may occasionally curse that. Plus, I'm fairly certain you can still view it for free. If you're anything of a real film person, go find it and watch it.

I *am* amused that at least two pornos are on here. 'Behind the Green Door' and 'Debbie Does Dallas,' but know what's not? 'Deep Throat,' the movie that, without it, the other two wouldn't have been possible.

Also, I know WAY too much about movies to not be going into them in some job type field.

I just got off the phone with someone from Tech Campus. When I first talked to him when I went up to Ruston a few weeks ago, I got a bit despondent because he had let me know that appeals don't usually work. I think I took it wrong a little bit.

Like how he took my letter of appeal wrong. Granted, I only had a two sentence description on what to write, but whatever. He's letting me rewrite my letter after telling me EXACTLY what needs to be in it, because I was able to get across over the phone just how DESPERATE I really am to make this work and what I'm willing to do. What he's going to put forth to the committee (yes, there's a damn committee) is that I will get an 'A' in my first quarter back to bring my GPA back up to a 3.0 and not get anything lower than a 'B' on my last few classes, plus maybe retaking one of the classes I got a 'C' in if I'm still there in the fall (it's only offered in the fall of every year).

So, still no guarantees or anything, but a step forward. Right now, I'll take what I can get.

Folks, I know you're tired of me yelling at you, but you should be aware that there's a hearing this morning being held by the US House Judiciary Committee on a "copyright" bill that will essentially break the entire internet.

You like the internet, right? I mean, you're here.

From the link above:

As drafted, the legislation would grant the government and private parties unprecedented power to interfere with the Internet's domain name system (DNS). The government would be able to force ISPs and search engines to redirect or dump users' attempts to reach certain websites' URLs. In response, third parties will woo average users to alternative servers that offer access to the entire Internet (not just the newly censored U.S. version), which will create new computer security vulnerabilities as the reliability and universality of the DNS evaporates.

It gets worse: Under SOPA's provisions, service providers (including hosting services) would be under new pressure to monitor and police their users’ activities. While PROTECT-IP targeted sites “dedicated to infringing activities,” SOPA targets websites that simply don’t do enough to track and police infringement (and it is not at all clear what would be enough). And it creates new powers to shut down folks who provide tools to help users get access to the Internet the rest of the world sees (not just the “U.S. authorized version”).


This is being framed as an attempt to fight hackers and pirates. Don't buy it. And don't think for a minute that it's going to stop there. This is bad. And at the hearing today, only one opponent of the bill is being allowed to testify.

Please do whatever you can to fight this. Email congresspeople. Sign petitions. Yell about it in every venue you can.

I'm Being Repressed!
angelique5666
My friend's page is full of sad and I don't wanna add to it. *cries*

Well, for those that don't know, I'm trying to get back into my original school. My adviser, who is also the head of the graduate department in history, emailed me out of the blue over a week ago asking if I wanted back in the program. From how things sounded in our back and forth emails, me getting in was a cinch, and it was more if I could get my financial aid in order.

SO, I leave my Mo at home, drive up to Ruston, and try to do everything in person so that I know that it's done and don't have to worry about waiting a week or so for things to go through the mail. Of course, my adviser says that I should try appealing the original decision and applying for readmission as opposed to just straight applying again. Doing either of those would save the the forty dollar fee and puts away the possibility of me possibly having to retake courses and the like. I take my papers to the person who I have to appeal to, who basically tells me that it's not going to happen because, while HE'S been on the committee, it's never approved someone to reinstate them.

It's not total sadness, since I'll be able to straight apply and get in for the Spring Quarter in March more than likely. I don't really care if I have to start completely over. I just...I tried my best to not get my hopes up so that if things fell through, I wouldn't cry and scream. It happened anyway and I did it anyway. I'm thinking that my adviser/graduate head doesn't know the complete appeals process. Of course, the head of the History department (different person) was surprised I got kicked at all. HE said that I should have just been put on probation, like I thought was gonna happen when I got a 'C' in the first place.

I don't get all the bureaucratic runaround and hate. It's not like I FAILED out. I got three 'C's. My GPA is 2.889. RIGHT THERE at the 3.0 that I need. Can't someone cut my some GODDAMN SLACK???

I'm actually OK now. Brian and my friends that I'm staying in Ruston with cheered me up and we went to Wing Stop. Still, there was a little while where I either wanted to burn Tech to the ground or throw myself in front of a bus.

*sigh* Bi-polar disorder makes you extra fucking dramatic, apparently.

Novel Project
Captain Murphy
angelique5666
I've been stuck with an idea in my head for a while for a novel idea. It's about aliens coming to earth and, while being friendly, a war breaks out anyway when the aliens get sick from a cold/flu/random earth problem and the humans get sick from something equally benign to the aliens but bad for them. It's supposed to be a parallel for people coming to the new world and exchanging their own plagues (smallpox and syphilis), just without the initial conquering ideals.

One problem I've had with starting it was figuring out opening scenes. It would be a large cast, like The Stand by Stephen King. Of course, the first part of it would be people seeing the damn UFOs, but exact SCENES I was stuck on.

Then I saw this. Several of the characters are from a small town, so the idea of them first spotting them at a high school football game? PERFECT.

This makes me want to write, and it's even NaNoWriMo month! 50,000 words that have ANYTHING to do with this project (character backgrounds, random scenes, etc.) would make me beyond happy.

A friend of mine commenting a little late on my last entry reminded me that updating on that situation is a good thing.

I called and let my mom know the issues going on, and she called my doc and convinced him to cut me some slack and give me one more refill. So, I went and picked that up yesterday, along with a pill container that will remind me to take the damn meds.

Hopefully I can see the doc in a month and either have some sort of job by then, or maybe my own mom can help me out with that. *fingers crossed*

I forget to take my meds sometimes. Not that I think I don't need them when I'm feeling better. I just straight up forget, sometimes for DAYS at a time. Haven't taken them for three days at least (until today). Now I'm all hyper and have shaking hands. FUN.

I'm also on my last refill. Luckily, my mom's doing me a HUGE favor and calling my expensive ass doctor and seeing if he'll let me have a small three-month refill until I get on my feet (hopefully) and can afford to see his ass for reals.

Mississippi Personhood Amendment
You Love It Joss Kills It
angelique5666
Originally posted by gabrielleabelle at Mississippi Personhood Amendment
Okay, so I don't usually do this, but this is an issue near and dear to me and this is getting very little no attention in the mainstream media.

Mississippi is voting on November 8th on whether to pass Amendment 26, the "Personhood Amendment". This amendment would grant fertilized eggs and fetuses personhood status.

Putting aside the contentious issue of abortion, this would effectively outlaw birth control and criminalize women who have miscarriages. This is not a good thing.

Jackson Women's Health Organization is the only place women can get abortions in the entire state, and they are trying to launch a grassroots movement against this amendment. This doesn't just apply to Mississippi, though, as Personhood USA, the group that introduced this amendment, is trying to introduce identical amendments in all 50 states.

What's more, in Mississippi, this amendment is expected to pass. It even has Mississippi Democrats, including the Attorney General, Jim Hood, backing it.

The reason I'm posting this here is because I made a meager donation to the Jackson Women's Health Organization this morning, and I received a personal email back hours later - on a Sunday - thanking me and noting that I'm one of the first "outside" people to contribute.

So if you sometimes pass on political action because you figure that enough other people will do something to make a difference, make an exception on this one. My RSS reader is near silent on this amendment. I only found out about it through a feminist blog. The mainstream media is not reporting on it.

If there is ever a time to donate or send a letter in protest, this would be it.

What to do?

- Read up on it. Wake Up, Mississippi is the home of the grassroots effort to fight this amendment. Daily Kos also has a thorough story on it.

- If you can afford it, you can donate at the site's link.

- You can contact the Democratic National Committee to see why more of our representatives aren't speaking out against this.

- Like this Facebook page to help spread awareness.
