Shit, meet fan.

January 31st, 2013 (10:44 pm)

current mood: excited

  So today, I caught Nathan drinking.

That's not the bad part.

He first stole the money from me by going to the grocery store, and lying about what he got. Then, he drank 1 1/3 bottle. Enough to be a little slurred talking.

Then fixed a cup of coffee.

The drove to an AA meeting.

The lying is bad enough. The stealing... pretty infuriating.

But driving drunk?

When he got home, I confronted him. I told him that I would not tolerate the drinking and driving, and if it happens again, I'm done, period. I will not abide that, and I will not be a part of it.

I also told him that I need tonight alone. I need to sleep by myself, and have some time to myself, because I'm very angry, and very frustrated. I wanted him to sleep on the couch.

In typical overreactive fashion, he said "Take as long as you need" and walked out of the door.

I'm not about to chase him down. So, to take care of myself, I did a 42 minute yoga workout. After that, he came in to ask if he could borrow a blanket. It's 41 degrees out there. He took a little thin fleece blanket. I think he's sleeping out in the yard.


I swear he was fishing for me to ask him back in, but I'm done playing that game. If he chooses to sleep in the yard in the literal doghouse, so be it. He's a grown man, he needs to act like one. I'm not going to go out there and beg him to come back in. HE's being an idiot, and he knows it. I'm not going to be his mama anymore.

I don't want to leave him, but I'll be quite frank. I'm drawing my line in the sand, and I'm done playing games. He can drink himself to death for all I care, but I will not give him the money, and if h eve drives drunk again, I will call the damn cops myself, and let him figure out how to pay for his own fines.

And I'm going to Al Anon twice a week instead of once. Because I fucking need it.

As of tomorrow, no more subject lines in comments on LJ

Originally posted by moerlin at As of tomorrow, no more subject lines in comments on LJ

I was gonna update this with much happier stuff, but for the past week I've just been so enraged with LJ's asshattery that I've had it to here.

In case you didn't know, on 12/12 they first announced sneakily on the Russian journal of LJ's design guy that with new changes being implemented tomorrow, there will be no more subject lines in comments and that this change was "non-negotiable" (good round-up and translation here). I'm sure you all realize that this will basically make fandom and RP communities unusable. LJ's staff, however, doesn't give a shit. At least 18 pages of 100% negative feedback didn't sway them.

They've backpedaled some and will make keeping comment subject lines optional in some S2 styles, but the default (that 99% of communities are running right now) will decidedly be subject-less! Not to mention that their new and frankly, fucking ugly design will take forever to load and make the site a pain to use on mobile browsers.

And oh, it looks like they might be taking away the drop-down menu to select icons as well, so you'll have to load all your icons as pictures to select them. Lovely. (I will beta-test tonight to see if this is actually true.)

Really, I don't know why I'm surprised. LJ is always fucking with the parts of the site that actually work and breaking them, so this is just another instance of that. Because seriously, who are subject lines hurting by just being there? (And no, it can't be a matter of server strain, considering the new "graphic" interface will definitely be using up more resources - so much fun when there's DDoS attacks!)
As far as I know, they've never once listened to their customers, so those thousands of comments already posted probably won't do shit. I've left a message expressing my concerns about the new comment pages here anyway; so if you want to do that too, go for it! If anything, it helps with the rage. ;)

FYI: Dreamwidth is feeling Christmasy has reacted to LJ's bullshit and has open account creation (no invite codes needed) for the rest of the week. Might be a good idea to get your back-up or new home, whatever the case may be, up and running now.

What is on your holiday wish list this year? One random answer will win a $50 Amazon gift card. [Details here]

I'd say my biggest wish is to find my iPod. LOL. I lost it a couple of weeks ago, and it's either sitting in the pocket of the lucky fool who found it on the shuttle from Atlanta, or it's somewhere in this house, eaten by the massive black hole that is my home.

Friends only

January 30th, 2010 (01:01 pm)

current mood: happy

Yes, this journal is friends only. You're welcome to add me, if you like, but I make no promises that I will friend back.

I have a lot of friends, and much more will be more than I can handle. Please comment if you'd like read my friends-only posts (which is most of them). If I don't, please don't take it personally. It just means I read your journal, and for some reason, chose not to add you. Might be that I'm just not interested in your content, you post too many memes, or you don't use your shift key enough. It might be that I just have too many friends right now.

Site is up, and humming along beautifully

October 2nd, 2009 (02:11 pm)

current mood: ecstatic

Launch went off great, and while we've got a few bugs floating around, things seem to be working great!

If you have any tech help questions, peruse the Tech Help forum. Be sure and read existing topics before reporting a new bug... odds are good it's already been reported.

Here's to a great new season!

Two aquisitions for my costume

August 5th, 2009 (08:56 pm)

current mood: happy

I couldn't BELIEVE these shoes:

And I got this hat as well... it's very plain, and absolutely perfect for modding.

I also scored some GREAT jewelry bits for my costume, too... I'll get pictures of those up tomorrow. Went to Michaels, found some great bits and bobs, including the piece i'm going to put on the hat.

Quick costume help

August 4th, 2009 (11:53 pm)

current mood: panicky

holy CRAP.

A month until D*C, and I haven't even started on costumes.

I need your help! I'm looking for innovative, easy/cheap ideas for steampunkish costumes. JEnny and I chatted about doing a chimney sweep sort of thing, but I've had no luck at thrift shops, everything's too new.

I want three costumes: me, and the girls. I really wanna do some steampunk stuff. I think I'm going to hit the flea market this weekend and see what I can turn up. I've still got some birthday cash left.

Suggestions? Tips? Old clockwork stuff you don't want?
