Apparently having a hot shower every second night is very selfish of me. I should be uncomfortable so grand high poohbah Ricki doesn't have to deal with the generator every second night.

I want to come home.

Like now.

EDIT : Actually, Ricki didn't even comment about the genny being on. Rhyllis did, then proceeded to harp on about selfish I was for wanting to be comfortable and not go batshit insane.

I swear I am going to the kill the asshole living in this complex who feels the need to play loud bassy music all day and night day in day out.

All I can hear is the "thump" and it will drive me to murder I assure you.

And to the guy across the way who owns the REALLY squeaky car - get it fixed or I will slash your tyres!

And no, not aimed at the person who posted it.

I actually did this quiz myself and got Depressing. *shrugs*

smart
You are a smart one. Dear Christ...you're
annoying...You probably take pleasure from
making other people confused. It's not cool
man, it's annoying. If you keep trying to act
smarter than everyone else soon all you'll have
is yourself, because no one wants to be around
someone who makes them feel like an idiot.
Being smart is good, but showing it off isn't.


Why don't people like you?

No-one wants to be around someone who makes them feel like an idiot. You don't have to be an idiot. YOU can learn just as easily as anyone else.

I thought people stopped thinking it was uncool to actually learn things once they got out of highschool. It's like a return to schoolyard bullying. "Let's beat up the science kids!" "That kid always gets As, they must be a teacher's pet."

*sigh* Why do so many people ENJOY wallowing in their own ignorance?

Bah, I'll rant.

Why does everyone get their backs up when anyone points out a flaw in a movie? Yes, I know it's "just a movie" and "just entertainment" and yes, I did enjoy it but gee, filmmakers could do a little more research sometimes.

Then of course is the old "But animals can't talk either." argument. Duh, animals can't talk. If someone actually believed animals could speak fluent English because of a movie then there's something wrong with them. But yeah, some people WILL believe that "all drains lead to water" and forget about the water treatment barrier in between (which was weird, the pipes stated Sydney water treatment or whatever yet Nemo didn't have to go through filter after filter to make the water resonably clean before being ejected into the ocean. And they might just think that pelicans and seagulls over here are the same ones as over there. That's the kind of thing I give a shit about, what right do you have to negate that? I'm sure there's many things you're passionate about that I couldn't give a rat's ass about, but I won't deride you for it, sheesh.

Or another argument for Finding Nemo nitpicks - "It was aimed at Americans." So that gives them an excuse to use a thermometer that uses farenheit scale and American birds even though the movie is set in Australia. They could have set it in the Americas somewhere. They could have actually TAUGHT PEOPLE about Australia instead of just fucking it all up as they always do.

Take a bit of your own advice guys - "It's just a movie!"

Reach for the lasers with Antic's Sims-ulator!


Bloody Centerlink (yes again).

I went in to hand in the form about my rent arrangments, because the lease agreement is elsewhere while the powers that be figure out the new stamp duty stuff. I like how on the form if you tick that you have a lease agreement it then says you will need to produce it. "No, I'm handing this form in because at the moment I can't get HOLD of the bloody lease agreement! I have given it to you before, it hasn't changed, but nooo, you have to have it again by this date, which I cannot get the agreement by!"

Anyways, I was told beforehand that I could just hand this form in at the front desk. So I went to the front desk and gave the guy there the form.
"What payment are you on?"
"Newstart."
*Guy prints ticket*
"Please take a seat, hopefully the wait won't be too long." ("not too long" in Centerlink is 45 minutes!)
"But I was told I could hand this in at the front desk."
"There's no such thing as just handing form in anymore."
"Great, I wait an hour for a 2 minute consult."
"Yep!"

Dickhead. I take a seat and seethe awhile. I have better things to do than sit twiddling my thumbs. Once again Centerlink breeds resentment. After 20 minutes I get fed up and go back to the front desk and get a blonde woman.

"Hi, is there a suggestion or a complaint form I can fill out because it's ridiculous having to wait an hour just to hand in a form."
*Woman hands me suggestion form, which I shall fill out and send to the daft powers that be*
"Is that a fortnightly form?"
"No it's one of these..." *shows her form, I go to sit back down. Woman gets my attention again.*
"Is that all you have to do?"
"Yep."
"Just wait a second, I'll do that for you."

THANK YOU!!
I like that woman, she's actually helpful. So it was a happy ending kinda.

And defriended me from LJ, ah well their loss.

I've known Princess Silverswirl since she was JediMasterLisa on alt.toys.my-little-pony. Which is pretty much 5 years now. There have been many other situations where we haven't seen eye-to-eye but still seemed to retain respect for each other.

But this declawing thing... Shame on ME? I'm not the one crippling my cats because I am misinformed and/or plain ignorant. It saddens me to think that her awesome kitty is declawed, and any other cats she gets will be so as well, because she can't be bothered taking the time to look into other options. "Many of these cats would be dumped and subsequently put down if the owners didn't get them declawed." As Poohgirl said among other things - "Since when is love for your pets conditional?" Cats will be dumped by stupid owners anyway, these people don't deserve cats in the first place.

In other news

Why do I always choose the hot days to clean the bathroom? I had rivulets of sweat running down my face. Perhaps because I can do it while wearing my bathers and figure I would sweat whatever the heat. As soon as I finish I jump straight into the (cold) shower with my bathers on.

But now the basin and bathtub are a shade of peachy/beige instead of greyish. I don't know what that black crap all over the bathtub is but I think I may have to find the source (look out Matt and Warwick). ;) It's probably just something not being rinsed away properly and being left to sit and stick. GUYS!! Rinse the tub or sink out afterwards. Okay, I admit to not rinsing the sink properly either but I will start and hope you follow! It'll make the job of cleaning a LOT easier. Now all that needs doing is mopping the floor...

And a silly quiz to annoy you all...
