It is a sad day for the workd of cycling sports. I wonder what'll happen now. I'm sorry, but I really don't see why you would do a sport, compete in a sport...if you can't win without cheating. There's just no point. To compete is to put yourself against another to find out who is best. Not to find out who can afford to take the better drugs, and get away with. If you can't win on your own merrit, don't play to compete. Better yet. Don't play at all. It's much healthier for everyone in the long run.

Oh, you know the new McDonalds commercials on the radio, where he wakes her (assuming hubby and wife) up and talks about the new coffee and "service" they have? Where they put in the milk and sugar for you? Y'all know that that really has nothing to do with service what so ever, right?? This is simply a means for them to save money. How many people go and either stock up on "free" sugars and creams, or who play with the stuff and there fore "use" the stock McDonalds has of them? Trust me, it's a lot. And it adds up for them. It makes sense for them to do it this way, as it is less waste for them. But please, call it what it is, and don't try to pawn it off as a "service" for your customers. We all know it's not.

Ungh. All I'm up for right now is mindless knitting. Nothing wrong with that. However, I hatehatehate useless, wasted knitting. The last couple of attempts with various yarns to make panta's have not worked out. Why? Because I ran out of yarn. It's hard to know how much I need for each panta, given the difference in yarn types, and it being leftovers and all. So, as far as I know at least, all I can do is knit and hope for the best. Well....the last couple of times, not the best as it turns out. I could've had 4 panta's done. Instead, I have 4 frogponds. Bah. I wish my brain weren't so full of mush at the moment, as there's a few other things I'd like to be able to work on instead. But those all require a lot of paying attention and counting and whatnot. Piffle.
naelany: (grrrrr)
People, seriously. I love my friends. I love making new friends. But if you're going to add me to your friends list, do at least have to curtousy of introducing yourselves first? Kthanks. And uhm, putting in your info page that asking you who you are and why you've friended me will beget no reply... just rubs me the wrong way and will cause me to make even fewer of my posts public. Kthanks.

Have I ever mentioned just how much I loathe roadwork????? Remember them working on the road by my house? Well, they're doing it again. Right infront of my block. So when I went to take Dustin to work just now, I had to drive all the way to 73rd in order to get home. Mind you, I live on 62nd! Gah! And of course, they're working nights again. So between the noise they're making at night, and the noise the people working on the roof are making during the day, guess who's not getting any sleep. That'd be me. I'm not a very happy camper right now.
naelany: (grrrrr)
Bah, no sleep for me! I'm cold (gee, I wonder why), and I'm hurting. Ok, I think, I'll just try anyway. No go. Phonecalls. So, now I'm wide awake again. *mrgle* I guess I'll go and try and amuse myself somehow. GahhhH!!!!! Speaking of phonecalls!!! Dustin keeps getting calls for a man named "Richard". When he tells them this isn't his number, they start offering him stuff. Just had another one and I wasn't quick enough on my feet to remember to tell them they're calling a Do-not-call number, and to ask for theirs (of course, theirs does not show on the caller ID!) *stomps around*.

01) Being gay is not natural. Real Americans always reject unnatural things like eyeglasses, polyester, and air conditioning.

02) Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that hanging around tall people will make you tall.

03) Legalizing gay marriage will open the door to all kinds of crazy behavior. People may even wish to marry their pets because a dog has legal standing and can sign a marriage contract.

04) Straight marriage has been around a long time and hasn't changed at all; women are still property, blacks still can't marry whites, and divorce is still illegal.

05) Straight marriage will be less meaningful if gay marriage were allowed; the sanctity of Britney Spears' 55-hour just-for-fun marriage would be destroyed.

06) Straight marriages are valid because they produce children. Gay couples, infertile couples, and old people shouldn't be allowed to marry because our orphanages aren't full yet, and the world needs more children.

07) Obviously gay parents will raise gay children, since straight parents only raise straight children.

08) Gay marriage is not supported by religion. In a theocracy like ours, the values of one religion are imposed on the entire country. That's why we have only one religion in America.

09) Children can never succeed without a male and a female role model at home. That's why we as a society expressly forbid single parents to raise children.

10) Gay marriage will change the foundation of society; we could never adapt to new social norms. Just like we haven't adapted to cars, the service-sector economy, or longer life spans.

Bah! I've been trying to felt my bag for a few hours now. By hand, of course. It's not doing a whole heck of a lot. It certainly isn't shrinking! The stitches are fading a little bit, but aside from that, nothing. I've decided I want one of those tabletop washers you plug into an outlet. That'd make felting a lot easier as long as we're in the appartment. Because frankly, this sucks, and it's very hard on my back. And yes, Dustin does try and help, but it hurts his back also. Needless to say, this is getting to be highly annoying. I'm hal ftempted to just throw it in the washer and be done with it, come what may.

**edit** Well, I just went ahead and put it in the dryer with a couple of towels. Hopefully it won't shrink too much in there. I just couldn't handle the hand-felting anymore. Bah. I just realized I forgot to take a before picture, but I will take one for after. Trust me when I say it is big and floppy at the moment**

**edit 2** *grumble* Well, the warm setting didn't do much for shrinkage. The stitches have faded some though. Put it in on the hot cycle now and added more friction still. If this doesn't do it, it must be superwash wool. Which would tick me off.**

*headdesk* This is getting to be too much. I'm all for political correctness. In moderation (as with most things). But this PC is going too far in my book. They're trying to make Christmas be somethign other. Carols are out, if they (whoever "they" are) get their way. And the Christmas tree should be the Holiday Tree. Come on people! Christmas is Christmas. Leave it be! You really want to spoil the one time a year when we're "allowed" to be the way we ought to be the rest of the year (para-phrased from somewhere, I forget where exactly)? Leave Christmas to be Christmas and allow it the magical time it can be. Celebrate your holiday the way you deem fit. If you don't do Christmas, but do Hanukkah or Kwanzaa or whatever, do it. I'm not picky about it. I don't care what you call it for you. But for me, Christmas is Christmas, and I defy anyone to change my mind about it

This little video makes me very glad I don't have kids. Granted, if it were my kid, he'd have a thing or two coming his way. None of it good. I got this off of [ profile] scalzifeed, and I agree with him on this one. Both child and mother deserve to be smacked into next week for this one. For his comments on it, you can go here. Actually, read his blurb first, then go watch the video *shakes head*. Some people shouldn't be parents.

I'm seriously wondering if my landlady is insane! I get a note on my door today, which, in very nice words, says the painting is almost done outside. All yay and everything. However, the last thing they need to paint is our doors. And for that they need to be open for several hours before they can be closed again. Are they kidding me? They freakin' wait until it's almost 40 degrees Fahrenheit to paint the friggin' doors and expect us to have our doors open for hours and wait for them to dry?!? Oh, and if we're for some reason not home, we are to consider this the obligatory 24 hour notice of entry. Say what now? First of all, she doesn't have both our keys and I have a chain on my door (which we're not allowed to use, go figure). So if I really wanted to, I could make it very hard on her to enter my home. And oh yeah, by the way, they don't know when the painters are going to be there, so please be available. Which means, if you're not home, your door will be open for hours. With no one there to supervise, basically, because God forbid the woman actually do her job!
I'm so mad right now. I'm actually considering writing to the place that owns the appartments, and ask them if they were even thinking on this one. I mean, my heating bill is going to go up for the day because all of a sudden I have to heat the outdoors too, because they couldn't get off their asses and do this in the Summer, when it was nice and dry and warm? I don't think so! Or do they expect me to sit in my home and freeze? *grumbles* Of all the lame-brained things that have gone on since we've lived here, this one certainly does take the cake it seems. Please, God, when can we have our own home?

So, tomorrow, I'll have a note on my door, telling them to please knock and be patient, as I am sleeping! I'll be damned if I have to forego my sleep in order to sit around and wait for anyone to show up and God only knows what time. I'll thank them to wake me up, if they absolutely insist on doing this now, but at least I can get some rest. Dustin certainly needs to sleep. Thankfully, once he's at work tomorrow night, I can always go ahead and crash for a few hours.
Can I kick her? Please? Just once?

And they claim that pop-culture has no harmful affects to children? On E they're having a 101 countdown of starlicious make overs. One example: Barbie. And they show a woman who went under the knife 47 times in order to look like Barbie! Because that was what she felt was the way to look. Way to go Mattel! Not only have you increased the toy industry income with your boobs on legs, you've increased the plastic surgery industry as well. How many other companies can say the same?

Blah! How hard is it to figure out that the movie people are milking the paparazzi and trashy publishings and stuff for all their worth? Let's see here. Mr and Mrs Smith is about to come out, all of a sudden Brad and Angelina are the "hot new item". The Break  Up is about to hit the screens, and of course Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn are now supposedly the hot new thing. Anyone else find this the least bit suspect? I don't care if it's true or not, it's none of my business, nor anyone else's. I just find it a coincidence that this seems to happen just about every time a new movie comes out that they want people to see. How often have we heard "such and such are the hot new item, of course they deny it, but I'll be watching their on screen work to see all the small signs". And no, I'm not making a comment like that up, I just paraphrased that from E, Hollywood Insider. *sigh* Don't people have better things to do in life then to speculate about who's dating who and who's causing who to break up? Get a life!

I got this in my email from freecycle. *rolls eyes* This just... rubs me the wrong way. I realize there is still some stereo typing when it comes to knitting, but come on, there's plenty of younger folk who could teach her, and probably be more patient than someone over 40. Not saying I would be, because I'm not a patient person, but still. *le sigh*

WANTED:  Basic knitting lesson
Looking for an older, gentle, patient woman....40's and up, non-
smoker...who can give me a basic knitting lesson. I can get all the
tools and yarn if you can guide me on what to get. I simply want to
knit a basic,large afghan...not into hats, clothes, etc. Just want to
occupy my hands in the evenings so I snack less and thought knitting
would be a good thing. My grandmother was a knitter.

Well.... I finished my first ever sock. And it's useless, because the cast off I did (the only one I know) is too tight, so now the stupid thing won't go over my foot *cries*. And I was all geared up for making my second sock. Is this why people have second sock syndrome? I don't want to start on the other one until the first one's good to go, you know? Which means I either need to go to the LYS and see if they'll be kind enough to help a girl out, or make my way to Newport so [ profile] yarnpirate can help me *sniffle*. I'm so bummed!

*grins and crosses arms* Who says it doesn't pay to get mad at customer service? I just went and checked my account and they've at least gotten partway done. I also got another email in which they still claim to be able to get me a person if only I'd follow the directions (newsflash, I did already, to no avail!). But anyway. I just wrote them back in a far more tempered manor, thanking them for having done as much as they have and asking them to please go all the way and take care of the rest. We'll see what happens. But the major issue's been dealt with. I just hope the rest will now follow. Nice to know that they at least have one person in their employ that can read *chuckle*
