So, I wound up on a website that pointed to a website that pointed to some odd little single-page site that linked to this blog. The thing hasn’t been updated in like 3 years, which is about how long I haven’t spoken to its author. That’s a whole other can of worms for a post when I’m significantly less lible to still wind up pissed about the explanation. Ah, who am I kidding? If I’m still pissed about it 3 years later it’s not going away. IT was immature anyway. Ah well. Maybe I’ll find a more updated version of someone else’s blog I haven’t heard from in about that long. Considering most of the people in question I used to roleplay with fairly regularly on Eternal Struggle, I suppose there’s enough explained there. Boy, does her writing ever look different now that her vendictiveness is common knowledge. Who’d of thunk it?
Colleges around here have been on strike now for a week or so, and there’s not much leaning in the favour of a resolution any time relatively soon. Not quite so bad, unless you’re one of the students attending said colleges. Then, it becomes a matter of whether or not they’ll actually get to finnish their semester. Highschools going on strike are just plain irritating; you can at least make up for that in the summer, or next year in a pinch. Plus it’s free. Some of the college students effected will have to redo their whole year, likely. Others, their entire program. And that’s not quite so free. I was giving serious thought to going back to Algonquin College this year, or next. But if this is going to be a semi-regular occurance… well, enough said.
Yeah, I’m easily amused… but oh well! I made it onto Google!
Okay so amidst being bored, I realised just out of completely and absolutely nowhere, that on average I forget about close to 3 birthdays per month. That’s
just wrong. Well, easy solution… happy birthday to whoever I haven’t said happy birthday to yet this month! Ah, staying awake until damn near 5:00 in
the morning is a good time.
So, I finally got fed up and called the aforementioned place of potential future employment, just to see where it is I stand… since I hadn’t heard anything in 2 weeks and I was supposed to have heard back in a week. Still don’t know where I stand, but at least they didn’t tell me to go straight to hell. Nothing whatsoever to do with the fact that I’m going there anyway. Not at all. I’m supposed to hear back from these people at some point this afternoon, so hopefully I wind up significantly less unemployed. Or, I suppose, I’ll settle for just being told I don’t stand a snowball’s chance in hell. But I’d prefer the former. And so would my credit card.
It’s been just over 2 years since the only BNL concert I’ve gone to, and I know for a fact I’m overdue. I should fix that… but I’m poor. Someone fix that
for me? Pwease?
… I still remain unemployed. Stupid unemployedness. The folks at Online Support were supposed to call me back last Monday or so. I’m still waiting… and still getting poor… and still unemployed…
Call me, damn you! Or… something.
… I have absolutely no life whatsoever. Well, aside from that whole looking for work thing. This is evidenced by the fact that I’ve been roleplaying, in one fashion or another, for upwards of… 3 or 4 years now. Ever since my last year of highschool, anyway. God, I’m pathetic. But it’s fun!
Okay, so the stupid Canadian men’s hockey team sucks so far as the olympics go. I’ve already bashed them. But now the real hockey season’s back… and there was much yayness! Personally, I’m looking at the Ottawa Sennators to at least take it to the finals. I’d put my money on the Toronto Maple Leafs, but if their pre-olympic play is any indication I’ll be broke. So, moving on…
Just once I’d like a roleplaying game without the politics. Yeah, it’s not a world-changing issue but I don’t care. I play, well used to play, 2 RPG’s, one of which has been shut down now for 4 months or so–I still play the other. Both games, however, are pretty much up in arms at the staff level about God only knows what. The one that’s shut down, though, has taken it to a whole new level of immature. Both sides, as indicated on this site, and as echoed on this one, have effectively said “We’re not bringing the game back online until they back off.” Hmmm… you’re not being payed for it, and it sure as hell isn’t unionised… so uh, grow up and let people play. Really… I know children who act less childish.
Okay, I know the disability support program is supposed to be here for the sake of people who, for whatever reason, can’t get hired so they can pay their bills and things still. But, one would think they’d have something in place to help these people find work so they can get *off* said disability support program. Apparently, no such luck. Not only do these people have absolutely nothing concrete they can bring up so far as that goes, but they just automatically assume organizations like the CNIB,
which is in fact an overpriced store disguised as a non-profit organization, actually give a damn. To these people, I only have one thing to say… government organizations hurt my frackin head!
Okay, so I decide to finally make an email address on this server serve as my primary one, because well, I’m insanely tired of sympatico. Logical choice, you’d think. And you’d be right… usually. But, the day I decide to do it is the day they break their servers. So, while I can send email from my primary address, I can’t receive email on my primary address. Kind of makes the whole idea of a primary address useless, don’t it though? They eventually got it
fixed… a whole 36 hours after they were supposed to. It’s a real good thing I’m not in business… that might verry well just piss me off. Oh, wait… it did.
My leafs actually won a game… bloody miraculous! Yeah, that’s new. New enough to be worthy of being posted here, anyway. That, and I just wanna make sure
this isn’t just something that’s gonna wind up completely and utterly breaking on me any time soon. It’d better not…
Today’s minor miracle… I actually have this thing working! Just a little easily amused, perhaps? You betcha. But oh well… right?
