I had to rent a car for today because I need to go to an appointment and bf works so he can't take me. I was ok for the first half of the drive, the second half on the parkway I was scared sh*tless. My hands kept sweating, I was terrified of breaking each time someone was in front of me. The image of someone ramming into the back of me kept playing. Hello anxiety city. I dunno what's going to happen when I get the title for my car and start driving again. I'll have no choice but to drive, how I'll get over this anxiety is beyond me.

Oh man, Subspecies is just so stupid! You seemingly can't kill the bad vampires no matter how much you kill them, but the good ones die very easily. And yeah, the Radu voice is hilarious. Aw, damn eeeet!

I have a hard time suspending disbelief over scrawny Dawn taking down supernatural beings. There's super strength involved and I swear Mutant Enemy would forget this.

Making a really good pound cake does take some skill. I'm just saying there's no real mystery to it. People think it's some special super-secret cake, but it's essentially just a pound cake batter.
But, but... I'm scurred
The hardest part is the meringue because Italian meringue is annoying to make and requires good timing. But pound cake itself isn't too hard, and neither is pastry cream (I like pineapple filling myself since pastry cream feels like a very foreign filling for a Dominican birthday cake; I've been wanting to make one with my own pineapple and vanilla jam for a while).

Well, that's a relief!

I worried I'd somehow offended a valuable client, but it turned out she's struggling with a new computer and jump drive. It's chaos for her, sadly, but at least it's not "curtains for me."

Phew!

Ah, Valentine's Day, so come the photos of chocolate-covered strawberries all over the place. I do not get it. Awful, tasteless out-of-season-strawberries covered in chocolate. I'd just eat a truffle and skip the crappy fruit. Of course, when strawberries are in season, I want them plain anyway.

"...based off of..."

My new most favoritest pet grammar peeve.

One builds upon a base, not "off of" a base.

Now, get over there and stand in line next to "your," which is right next to " 's " and "I could care less...."

Sunscreen or any lotions for that matter have not been proven to cause cancer. I think seeing as they've been around for several decades and no link has been found, that I'll take my chances and use them to raise my protection from free radicals and UVA/B rays which have been proven to cause cancer.

It's funny the same people that cry like a stuck pig if you even mention global warming and pollution think lotions cause cancer. One of our favorite clients is really sick from skin cancer. I've had a family member die of skin cancer, I've had several family members having to have moles removed and studied for cancer. So tell me again what causes cancer. People are so stupid sometimes.

I think my favorite (and by that I mean the most annoying) is the apostrophe plus the letter S to make something plural.
Mirror's

Sigh.

A 16yo friend of mine was drinking last night and has been passed out ever since then. The doctors say he has alcohol poisoning and he's unresponsive right now. If you guys could please keep him in your thoughts and prayers it would be much appreciated. thanks!

LOL. That's what I was trying to show with " 's. " I was hoping anyone that would come across more clearly.

I just wish it didn't bother me so much. I just can't seem to flip that switch into the "off" position no matter how hard I try.

Hahaha, so now a week after one car is out of the shop, to the tune of $900, the other car breaks down.

Universe to her minions: They have a little money left...don't let that happen! Get in there and take the rest of it from them!!!

Minion: Well, the state is going to restart wage garnishment of nearly $1000/month in child support next month, even though there is only one of the three children left in the home, and his current income is probably half what it was when the support was originally ordered. He is requesting that the amount be lowered, but we will see to it that it takes several months just to deny this request. Besides, remember...the breadwinner of the family has been unable to find employment in her usual field, and her career is over, so they're doomed no matter what!!!!

Universe: Ah...excellent, EXCELLENT!!!! That combination of factors should do them in nicely.


Sigh...if I don't laugh at the utter absurdity of my existence right now, I'll start crying and never stop.... I can't get over the feeling that somewhere someone is shouting, "KARMA!" Just not sure who or why.

Well, I wasn't expecting that!

You are a true nutcase.

Unfortunately, in some ways, so am I.

I know McDonalds is bad, but it's oh so good at the same time.

it isn't.... remember:

any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind

but in our society (media-obsessed as it is), we feel connections to people in the public eye. how can i feel connected to someone when i don't even know of their existence?

Whitney Houston's music touched my life; listening to her lifted me, inspired me and soothed me.

i mourn for what could have been and a life cut short far too soon.

Agreed. Exactly.

If the world had known ever single person who died from an overdose, they would mourn that person. But we do not, and we can only feel a personal feeling if something has personally affected us.

Its a ridiculous comparison. I absolutely HATE when people make that kind of comment. "oh, there are thousands of people who die from that a day, why am I going to make a big deal about this one person...." - what other point does that comment have than to just be different and start an argument.

First of all, it's sad to see someone who was so talented, and have the possibility of having so much, and throwing it away because of an addiction.

Second, it's a representation of people all over who are taken over by addiction.

Third, we feel a connection to her, so we would feel more emotion hearing about Whitney Houston dying than hearing about some one we didn't know in the next town over - but we would be more emotionally affected if say, our cousin died from a drug overdose.

Do people not THINK before they say or write things like that? It's pretty obvious to figure out. I'm not impressed by the attempt at being deep and philosophical.
Thank you. SMDH.
