In a fit of what can only be described as insanity I removed 95 friends/comms/feeds from my f-list. It is now easy to digest in small chunks and not nearly so daunting. Especially after getting rid of some high traffic comms, like metaquotes. Ugh, metaquotes. That comm hasn't been funny since the 7/7 bombing.

Now that everything's slowing down I can start working on my reading backlog. I suppose I should stop putting it off, the Potter bible isn't going to read itself...

Yesterday's giveawayoftheday.com software was an advanced Windows scanner. I ran it on my laptop and the preformance increase was immediately noticeable. So I figured I'd download it for my desktop too.

Ran it, and my desktop was running so much smoother by the end. I started to turn off the computer when it occured to me...

Maaaaybe my video card wasn't the problem with WoW.

So I subscribed for a month online and ran the game. I figured either way I'm going to be playing this month, if I lose a week of gametime it's not a big deal.

Ehehehehehe.

I played for four hours straight. I got lost looking for Dreadmist Peak with my druid and found out that hunter's fucking suck for their first 10 levels. This is probably not an auspicious start.

I know at least two of y'all play, but I can't remember your servers. My mains are on Blade's Edge, Lyta's the druid and Benten's an orc hunter.

So, yes. Time to do hunter research while the server is down for maintenance. And possibly eat/shower/see sunlight.

So, took my test on Thursday. Aced the maneuverability. Flew through it without a hitch. I was like, YES, HARD PART IS OVER.

Then I get to the road portion.

Ten minutes later I have a slip of paper informing me that I failed by ONE POINT. And that I got 15 points off for taking turns too slow. And another five for taking too wide a turn because my instructor insisted I take the last left at 25mph.

Plus, I brake too early.

... FUCK.

On the other hand, I have 1337 backing up skills that I can not reproduce outside of the test area. And I won't have to retake that portion when I try again next week, with any luck.

Saw PotC a few hours ago. Spent 3/4 of the movie waiting for boring choreographed fights to be over, and the other quarter waiting for much more entertaining intra-protagonist brawls to start. Was disappointed time and time again.

I want to go to the comic shop. But I can't. Because I can not walk out with less than twenty dollars in media, and I must save my money until I get that computer upgrade. But I don't think I'll be able to resist this coming Wednesday. BoP and Outsiders, must have. Maybe I'll send a list with Ed when he goes in for his weekly constitutional.

In summation, crushed red peppers + my eyes = AHHHHGODWHY?!?!?!

Uninteresting family stuff. )

Anyway, I ended up scheduling my driving test tomorrow. I have yet to decide which car I'm taking, since I've just been using whichever car is closest to the street to drive in (this generally excludes my van by default, since I have to park it way in the back or I can't get it out of the driveway again).

I wanted to take it this weekend, but the Parma testing center only does testing one day a week, which is retarded. I could have waited until next week, but I figure this one will be a good practice run, and there's a small chance that I can pass and be done with it.

Plus, if I do pass, I'm BUYING MY VIDEO CARD. I want it so bad. I dream of WoW, it's sad and disgusting. I have read almost the entire WoW wiki. I miss my Tauren druid something awful. Mostly I just want to chase things down in bear form and maul the crap out of them.

SO SAD.

I went with my sister to get her birth control shot today. This is only mentioned because she asked me to go into the doctor's office with her and I ended up learning way more about her sex life than I ever wanted to know. They made her take a pregnancy test too. And we had a rousing debate over which testing method is grosser/more dangerous, urine or blood. We eventually decided that either way, neither of us was ever going to be a nurse 'cause fresh-from-the-body fluids are a bit ick.

And I need to buy a bathing suit. Ugh. Not looking forward to that because, given my size, I end up looking either matronly or slutty. Inevitably I have to get a two piece because any suit that fits my hips won't fit my breasts and vice versa, so I have to mix and match.

The last suit I got was a two piece. Navy blue bathing tank and shorts. *cough* But my self-esteem was much lower then, thanks to being fairly fresh from surgery and having several scars covering my stomach. But, eh, at this point I just want to find something that'll let me get a mostly even tan. I'm tired of being green.

August 7, 9pm. Rasputina at the Grog Shop. Tickets are $15, and since I'm sure to be car ride independent by then I'll be going (99% certainty, unless I get cancer).

I don't think any of you guys in the area are interested in Rasputina, but is anyone willing to assail their ears and kill an evening with me?

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH DRIVING.

I WENT TOO FAR FROM MY ~SAFE SPACE~.

I WASN'T *EXACTLY* LOST, BUT IT'S HARD TO READ STREET SIGNS WHEN YOU'RE HAVING AN ANXIETY-INDUCED PANIC ATTACK (DEPARTMENT OF REDUNDANCY DEPARTMENT, [livejournal.com profile] lytabenten SPEAKING).

I GOT A HUGE BARBACOA BURRITO AFTER I GOT ON THE RIGHT TRACK HOME THOUGH. THAT'S PRETTY SWEET.

I'M TRYING TO CALM MYSELF DOWN WITH SILENT HILL AND VIDEO CARD SHOPPING. I THINK I'VE SETTLED ON THIS SEX BOMB. THE BEST PART IS WHEN I UPGRADE THE REST OF MY COMPUTER I CAN JUST OPT INTO A SHITTY VIDEO CARD AND REPLACE IT WITH THE 7950, THUS SAVING MYSELF FIFTY BAJILLION DOLLARS IN MARKED UP HARDWARE. I'M SLOWLY COMING TO THE REALIZATION THAT IT'D PROBABLY BE EASIER TO DO SOME MORE RESEARCH AND BUILD MY OWN COMPUTER PIECE BY PIECE INSTEAD OF DELLING IT. I'M CONSIDERING IT, MOSTLY BECAUSE DELL WANTS TO CHARGE ME A RIDICULOUS AMOUNT OF MONEY FOR ~FLAT SCREEN~ MONITORS LIKE THEY'RE SO AWESOME. BUT I DON'T LIKE FLAT SCREENS. I PREFER MY BOXY MONSTER BECAUSE IT DOESN'T LOOK LIKE IT'LL CRACK IN HALF WHEN I SNEEZE IN IT'S GENERAL VICINITY. AND DELL IS ALSO TRYING TO TALK ME INTO LETTING THEM INSTALL AOL AND SOME STUPID SOFTWARE THAT I'LL NEVER USE BUT WILL STILL BE PAYING $75-$150 FOR. WHICH IS NOT ON.

ALSO, APPARENTLY SKIPPING MY BIRTH CONTROL NOW TURNS ME INTO A HELLBEAST. I MISSED ONE PILL AND SPENT A WHOLE DAY CONTEMPLATING MURDER. IN A VERY LITERAL WAY. IT WAS LIKE PMS x 10, WITHOUT THE FUN BITS. LIKE SANITY.

PEE ESS, I'VE LOST MY DIGITAL CAMERA. SUCK.

PEE PEE ESS, I AM LIKING THIS BAND, GIRLS IN A COMA.

Still alive.

Attempting to find a job. Because I need to get the hell out of this house. It is not going well.

Also, debating whether to go back to school in the fall. Should probably make a definite decision soon. Paperwork needs doing and all that fun stuff.

Blaaaaaaaaaaaaah.

Dilemma. For the first time in forever my money is not tied up in bills/presents/my sister. So I was thinking of splurging on myself.

Options:
1) WoW subscription (I'd have to play on my laptop though, which isn't horrible but I planned on waiting until I got my desktop model up to speed)

2) Nintendo DS + Animal Crossing (which I could play anywhere but it doesn't have UNDEAD AND TAURENS)

3) Getting neither but feeling warm and fuzzy at having more than $150 in my checking account.

I think I may end up defaulting to option three just because I'm beginning to really enjoy having cash.

Woke up sick as a dog this morning. After vomiting a bit I laid back down for an hour. Finally got up at 9am and my throat was tore up. Ugh.

Also went driving today.

Did fairly well, considering I got maybe three hours of total practical driving almost three years ago.

Stopped at my mom's house for the first time in months. My kitties are so SKINNY. My Mama Kitty was thinner than I've ever seen her, and Aye Aye was practically bones. But they all seemed healthy despite that, so I'm not terribly worried. They are getting really old. The kitten was so big though. Not fatter, but so lanky. He wrapped around my neck like a furry boa.

After that we stopped to get some food. And we were nearly hit by a cranky old man.

Apparently I was turning too slowly for his tastes. So he went into opposing traffic to try to pass me. But the thing is, I WAS TURNING INTO THE LANE HE SWERVED INTO. So he nearly hit me. Like, literally hit ME. If my mother hadn't started yelling at him for blocking traffic (because he STOPPED after he nearly hit my side of the car and started screaming obscenities through his wife's window) he would have climbed out of his car and tried to throttle me.

So now I feel doubly bad. I'ma drink some chocolate milk and lay down.

Did get MirrorMask back though. And my copy of The Girl with the Golden Bouffant in the mail. So that's something.

Today I played Adventures in the BMV: Part II. It's been awhile since I played the original. Now I know why. My day would have made a very boring text adventure now that I think about it.

Nobody wants to play it, but everyone has to. )

In summation, I have a piece of plastic that says I can drive with a buddy and donate my innards.

Go me.

I downloaded the Digest of Ohio Motor Vehicle Laws on Friday. I started reading it after I finished Kiss the Girls and Make Them Spy a few hours ago.

I forgot how many rules there were for driving. I pretty much have just the one that reads "Don't hit anything."

Thinking about driving tomorrow is making me nervous. I can already feel that queer feeling at the base of my spine I always had during my practicals at driving school. It didn't help that my instructor was calling me a moron for driving five miles under the speed limit.

... I don't think I want to do this anymore.
