Gah!
Jan 22nd, 2009 by Babs

<div class=\"pavatar\">Gah!</div>

Dear Netflix,

In the future, it would be so nice if you could send out emails responding to requests to reset one’s password in a timely matter. No, three hours after the fact (or, as did happen last month, never) is NOT considered timely. If you cannot do this, at least consider these options:

1. Make your Customer Service page available to those who cannot log into their accounts. It is extremely frustrating when I have to contact you because I can’t login to my account but am required to login in order to contact you.

2. Make the link that reads “I no longer have access to this email address” a smidgen larger. Maybe four or five times the itty bitty font you’re currently using. That way the next time you drop the fucking ball I can still fix things before I go completely gray.

Dumbasses.

No love, Babs

David updated Kaleidoscope so that it’s compatible with WP 2.7. I’ve upgraded the theme and now I want to test to see if (and how) the threaded comments feature works. Feel free to comment to your heart’s content.

Weekly Weigh In
Jan 20th, 2009 by Babs

Today’s post has been brought to you by the following search terms *laughs*: emile hirsch,  omnommonster,  “emile hirsch” -boxxet,  babs,  code pink fuck the troops.

*groans* Yes. I DID gain, like, three pounds. I can only hope it’s due to my regaining some muscle, and not my snickerdoodle binge. And my pizza binge. And my…

I did get in almost two hours of cardio this past week, though, so I am improving. I wish I knew what it is that is making me so disinterested in working out. I used to have no problem. In fact I even looked forward to it. Nowadays I feel like I’m searching for reasons to get out of it. :P Must. Get. Back. On. Track! Once I can accomplish that I should start to feel easily motivated again.

I’ve Been a Bad, Bad, Girl.
Jan 16th, 2009 by Babs

<div class=\"pavatar\">I've Been a Bad, Bad, Girl.</div>

For starters, I forgot to post this week’s weigh in. Given that I gained 2 pounds this may not be a bad thing. *sheepish grin* I did get a couple hours of cardio in this week, though, so all is not lost.

I managed to go from 7am yesterday to 5pm today without a cigarette, thanks to aromatherapy and nicotine gum. I caved after that. The stress of dealing with Glenn and the boys has been too much. On the semi-positive side the few cigs I did smoke today tasted NASTY, so I will be making another attempt to quit ASAP. I’m amazed I managed to last as long as I did. Last night I was so tense! For the last couple of nights Glenn has been so drunk that he snores. LOUDLY. So fucking loud that I can have my Sansa up high enough to hurt my ears and I can still hear him! And any attempt to roll him over results in failure. He is so lucky I didn’t take advantage of his pillow laying beside him last night ’cause, trust me, I probably could’ve pulled off the “temporary insanity thing”.

In other news the preteen, who refuses to brush his teeth, lost two of them in the course of a week. Because the Town refuses to pay for dental insurance we have no way of telling if they were baby teeth coming out late. I’m thinking “no”. The loss of one of them isn’t too bad, however, as it was one of the same two teeth I had to have pulled to make way for my “fangs” which the preteen has inherited. One is growning in the spot where one tooth fell out (hell, it might have even pushed it out), the other is coming in above and behind the tooth it should be in front of. *headdesk*

Wednesday night was the first practice of Bay State Sound, the corps that has risen out of the ashes of the Light Brigade. Most folks were expecting some reunion time after two months vacation but Bill, the owner/manager/etc. insisted both the horn and drum lines commence to learn the new program. The colorguard went downstairs and discussed what we would do if BSS doesn’t show some true signs of life within the next few months. It was decided that if the corps. failed we’d go, as a group, to the Holy Defenders. Well, a group minus one. The Holy Defenders are in Rockland, home of the secret lover Glenn insists I have, so I can’t go. This means if Bay State Sound doesn’t take off I have to choose between either being a traitor by joining the Boston Crusaders, or not being in a colorguard at all. :(

Inbetween all of this I’ve been busy crocheting, Simming and watching DVDs. I’ve managed to create a handful of scarves that I hope to unload on Etsy. I’m so loving the good and bad witches in “Apartment Life” but fear that I will not “complete” the game within my lifetime, even with all the dumbasses setting fire to themselves. I can’t get enough of the director/cast commentary for “The Lords of Dogtown” so I checked out Best Buy to see if they had a copy, cheap. They had a copy labeled $9.99, which wasn’t bad. Even better was when it rang up for $5.99!

*pulls a snickerdoodle from my secret stash* Shh! These things are delicious! I refuse to share them with the boys.
