How should he exploit it? Do a Cyrano De Bergerac type thing, except never let on that he's just taking all the credit for creepy guy's money? Or perhaps a menage a trois? tongue.gif

Complaint: I've been totally blown off by a company. I'm rather used to them pretending to be interested in me when they're not at this point, and acting like they're interested in hiring me and then never bothering to contact me again even to let me know I didn't get the job, but I'd really rather companies didn't just flat out lie to me. I was explicitly told at the beginning of last week that they would contact me in 3-4 business days. I sent a followup e-mail a few days later thanking the person I talked to and letting them know I was interested in the position. Still haven't heard a single word over a week later. It wasn't even a formal job interview, it was a screening interview to make sure I was ok for the formal job interview, and they said I was.

Remember Emu's face, people; one day it's going to be on the news alongside a headline about blowing some landmark to smithereens, and then we can all sigh and say, "She was such a normal person".....

Complaint: I ordered a comic book recently. Firstorm number 4. It's in my sig. And avatar. First appearance of Hyena, my favorite supervillain. I feel she's underrated... But that's because I like hyenas a lot!

Well, find that the damn thing had been encased in a big ol' plastic box. Now, that may be fine for some of the "comics as objects" people who want stories to be seen and not heard. But it's of no use to me unless I was ordering my comic to be used as a bludgeoning weapon.

So, even though I got it out, I'm saying Complaint: CGC

Additional complaint: Cliffhangers in old comic books.

All the comic books I've seen (mostly new ones), are at least 70% ads with no increase in page count from the old days, so you get about five pages of comic and then a cliffhanger.

I need to pick up the Sam & Max collection some time.

Well, it's a Silver Age comic book.

Seriously, it pisses me off that people would do that to the comics. It's like... Caging the stories up and it makes me so mad.

Played football for the first time since last summer yesterday and managed to strain what feels like every muscle in the lower half of my body. The worst has to be seriously messing up my ankle and some sort of groin muscle so yeah in a world of pain and funny walks at the moment. pinch.gif

Perhaps you could apply to the Ministry?

In all seriousness, I hope you both feel better soon.

Complaint: I'm looking at my last small paycheck from my now former coop. No more decent income until after college. *sigh*

Complaint: Apparently my SAT essay was worse than the example essay that included the phrase "On this one episode of friends...". I honestly don't know what I did to deserve this. The fact that I was cut off half a sentence from the end doesn't seem like quite enough, so maybe it was worse than I remember. Nevertheless... argh.
"YOU'RE MISSING A PERIOD. YOU THINK IT'S FUNNY, DON'T YOU? YOU THINK IT'S FUNNY THAT YOU FUCK WITH GRAMMAR? WELL, FUCK YOU AND FUCK YOUR MISSING PERIOD! I HOPE IT MEANS YOUR SLUTTY, NON-PUNCTUATED WAYS HAVE GOTTEN YOU TEEN-PREGNANT!"

Complaint: My life is full of lonely, empty, desperation, and my lack of motivation and resistance to the reality of the world and its insistence on alienating me from myself and my fellow man means I try to fill that void with meaningless banalities to distract myself from my existential angst, ever furthering my perpetual uselessness, and I can't seem to break out of the cycle, despite being aware of it.

March 8th

March 10th
- Delivery did not notify me (nor the hotel) that my luggage was delivered. Had to check.
- Locked self out of room even though the key was in my pocket.

March 11th
- Hotel keys stopped working.
- Angry credit card hating cabbie encountered.

March 12th
