Yes, my cat passed away suddenly on Sunday afternoon around 1:30pm.

My apologies, Leo.

I should have read your above posts.

Again, I am sorry for your loss.

I ordered the Free Comic Book Day pop funko of John Constantine and of course its back-ordered. I contacted the online store I ordered from and they can't tell me when they will get stock in. Its annoying as some people have already gotten there's.

In the kitchen trying to cook dinner, while the in-laws are in the living room watching Rachel Maddow and literally shouting at the TV how they hope someone shoots Trump two dozen times in the face. Shouting loudly. Every time Giraffe Lady takes a pause for breath, one of them yells "SHOOT THAT MOTHERF*CKER!!! Don't impeach, JUST KILL THAT ASSHOLE ALREADY!!!" Lovely, completely rational stuff.

Two minutes before that they were ranting about how we need to get rid of all the Muslims. They don't know WHAT they want. Well, they're old, so like most people in their 60s they're mostly pissed off that they're not getting all the free sh*t that Obama promised them, so they gotta be mad at someone. But other than that they don't know.

Six more years of this sh*t ain't sounding like much fun. Sigh.

lol Wow. While I might feel no sympathy for him if he randomly up and dropped dead in the morning, yeah... that's a bit much. Political news is their football, isn't it.


Also, friggin' eBay snipers... Little vintage pin I'd bid on yesterday, $1.99, free shipping, figured what the heck. And so to I figured if someone else comes along and outbids me, so be it. But doing so the last minute when this wasn't even a pricey or fought over item... yeah, that's pretty jerky. Just bugs me that their visible past 30 day bid history is a long list that's all identical so I suspect they're a damn reseller.

Quote:
Collectibles > Decorative Collectible Brands 1 Seller 1 <1h
Collectibles > Decorative Collectible Brands 1 Seller 1 <1h
And repeat. All identical.

edit: Hm. Realizing that it all saying "seller 1" means that it's also ALL bought from one single seller as well, no variation whatsoever, so that's extra strange. Wonder now if it IS the seller cheating it and doing that to end auctions that weren't bid up as much as they want... Grr.

They're pretty loud when football is on, too.

I've noticed that there's generally two kinds of 60+-year olds: The kind who reserve themselves to living out their days in a quiet, reserved existence, and the kind who spend a puzzling amount of time shouting at the TV as if it can hear them.

A questionable affection for activities that take place at the auto-racing track may also be a factor in which type a person becomes, but that's a variable. I personally feel it's a strong indicator of Type B, but so far I can't say if it's true in every case or just 90% of them.

Yeah, pretty much, I have/had one of each. My dad definitely thought the people on tv (mostly football) could hear him. Spent most of my life putting up with him yelling it. And he was an Eagles fan, so yeah... everyone knows how passionate that lot tend to be about it. lol

Too bad they sucked for so long (thus putting up with lots of yelling forever) and they didn't get good until after he had passed. At least it would have been better for once listening to him yell at that Superbowl game.




edit: Grr. So did the Firefox Classic Theme Restorer plugin just die for all versions or only the antiquated ESR (aka version 52 and last supporting for XP)? Annoyed... It's been fine and seeing as how I don't get updates anymore it's stupid for this to just up and be taken away. Really hate the layout they left it with, moving junk that didn't need to be moved.


Next day edit: Btw, if anyone else is using an older version and had add-ons disabled against their will, this worked great for me to get mine back. Is said to work for version 56 and older. (Though one user said it worked on 66 for them.) https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/com...or_5602_older/

Found out today that one of my (once) favorite YouTubers has been revealed to have been cheating on his Wife for the past few Months, AND has been soliciting Nude photos with Underage girls

I really liked his videos, but now I'm not so much annoyed at him doing that, but more annoyed and disgusted at how ANYONE can do that

Nooooo, she came back! I know it had to be her. This lady, I swear... good grief.


Bad enough work was busy and frustrating since it's the day before a holiday so I had to work on a Saturday and people were under foot and in the way of doing my job constantly.

The Sh!t Year for losing cats takes another victim as our just two year old rescue was discovered to have hips so degenerated and arthritic that any procedure to make him more comfortable would be extremely expensive and short lived. Meanwhile he’s been in horrible pain probably his whole life on top of an autoimmune disease that re-surged in him a lot. He chewed on baskets and knocked over water with reckless abandon, and it was probably because of the amount of pain he was in - needing some kind of outlet.
So we all determined it would be much kinder to let him go rather than let it drag on and prolong his suffering.
He basically had no hip socket at all and the ball joint wasn’t smooth. So his bones were rubbing together. And his left knee had arthritis. Really, really bad arthritis.

We’ve never had to make a split second decision this fast before. We didn’t expect the situation to be this bad.

So, Leo, bruh, wish we lived close enough for "My Cat Died Recently" drinks

Really sorry to hear that. Sincerely awful.

Not to change the subject, but it's what's happening now... so yeah, I really should NOT have to explain to my f*cking wife not to share vivid and personal details of our sex life with random Facebook jagoffs who she's never even met, and yet here we f*cking ARE!

And did you guess that she's mad at ME for being upset about it, rather than just saying, "Oh, yeah, wow, massive violation of trust, I should've known better, I'm so, SO sorry"? If so, CONGRATU-F*CKING-LATIONS!

Right before our anniversary, too. I need this sh*t like a hole in the f*cking head.

If there was anything great that happened today, it was that the "anorexic" cat I'm "fostering" (we're probably going to end up stuck with her - and with Foursie gone, that's a greater possibility) actually ate a good bit of food today.

So...needing to find more kitten food that's got a bit of a stank to it.


(One grind with my cats that's pretty much my fault is that my bedding keeps getting peed on. It's my fault for leaving tiny kittens alone on my bed while I leave the room to get hot water ready for their bottles, but the amount of washing I've done for all parts of my bedding is...more than I'd like. It's not their fault they're too tiny for the litter box.)

Went for a two-hour walk, in the pissing rain, because if I stayed in the house and said what I felt like saying, I'd be in jail right now.

Come home. "Where were you?" "Out for a walk." "You mean you went somewhere to go cheat on me, right?"

I told her point blank, "If I had the capacity and the means to cheat on you, I'd be there and not here dealing with YOUR f*cking sh*t." She didn't really have an answer for that one.
---------------------

True Story: Once upon a time, I took pity on a girl who everyone called names and picked on, who was so miserable that she wanted to kill herself. I was, allegedly, the very first person to actually treat her nicely. I really didn't like the way people treated her, so I did what I thought was right and things escalated from there.

19 years later, I wish I could go back in time and kick my own ass for ever feeling sorry for her. Apologies to everyone who thinks they've been "bullied" and "mistreated", but in my experience, if damn near everyone you meet hates you, you deserve it. One way or another, you earned that kind of treatment. It don't happen any other way. You're just a Bad Person playing victim because people see through your bullsh*t.

Wish I knew then what I know now. I would have told her to go play in traffic, and my entire life would be different.

Sigh. This is the price one pays for trying to be noble.

Stay single, kids.

Imma hit the twerp(s) who thinks it's cool to post mass amounts of spoiling screen caps from the TMNT/Batman movie to Devientart as if this isn't a new thing many people still haven't seen yet because the damn disks are not even released. One can avoid accidentally seeing only so much.

Really makes me hate that companies decide to release digital versions this far in advance of the hard copy. Ugh.

God forbid I just like seeing what new art has been posted to the site; worse than all the BS that comes up that has nothing to do with the Turtles but is apparently still tagged with them nonetheless.

My gear grind is hospital visits. (Apologies to those in DF if you've already seen this) Called in to work last night, due to having spent the weekend with a bad case of Montezuma's revenge. So today I spent most of my morning and afternoon (until around 3) at the er getting checked out to see what was wrong. GI bug, which I kind of already suspected. Took blood, urine, gave me an IV (those darn needles HURT!) and then had me drink something to get my potassium back up. Stuff tastes like Tang that was made too strong. The room was cold, so was the IV fliud going in (they really need to warm that crap up first), my arm fell asleep since I couldn't use it with the IV in it, and the tv remote didn't work, so I was stuck in an empty, cold room for almost two hours with just my phone, but since I could only use one hand, I couldn't really do anything on it except play my Amazon music. Did I mention how much I hate the er? Grrr....
