I am going to hurt this pc soon.

It's the family pc. It was made by a bloke the milkman knew. It's old, and it's senile, and it's being kept going by the pc equivalent of duct tape and hope.

For the life of me, I do not know why. We have a new pc, still in it's box, waiting for the files from this one to be transferred to it and for this one to be taken down so it can replace it.

Dad was waiting for mum to finish some work on it from wednesday, before attempting the transfer yesterday. He didn't do it. Mum had actually finished said work. On wednesday. Neither of them had actually spoken to the other about this.

I just want to set fire to the thrice-bedamned thing and have done with it.

/rant.

So, last week could pretty much be summed up with the words 'snot' and 'apathy'.

Yeah. Not pleasant.

Also, regarding the hogging of the pc I get accused of?

Cut for brassed-off ranting )

Icons

Ok, this is insanely frustrating.

Why is it so difficult to track down who made a particular icon? Why?!

I've seen two Supernatural icons kicking about today that I really want to find the originators of, because they make me grin and I want to see if they made others.

It's driving me nuts. Ljseek is as much use as a 1930's tea-stained road map, google is worse, and I can't identify styles enough to say 'Ah-ha! It was you!'

I hate that effing car so much.

I'd really rather not drive.

Not a happy end to a good weekend.

Ok, also Ian Hislop's fault (ish):

Bradley James, dressed in the robes/dog collar of a priest. Um.

Also, I know this is Britain. This means summer consists of a four-day heat wave and three months of crap weather. However.
Stop making Gershwin's Summertime into a fucking dirge. Just stop it!

Godsdamn it!

Don't you hate it when you return to a website you favourited months, or even years, back only to discover that not only is the link broken but the site appears to have vanished off the face of the internet?

I don't suppose anybody else ever went on the Dex's Diner fic site?

Is it just me, or is there anyone else who doesn't give a rat's ass about the current olypic games and wishes that everything, papers, tv, radio, would just get over it?

BBC fail

Does anyone else really wish that the BBC would just release Top Gear in entire series, as box sets, and not just the sodding 'specials'? I'd buy them, dunno about anyone else. They're hilarious.

Gods, I want to smash something[s] and I don't even know why.

Fuck.


Fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck


I had to frog an entire sock. The tension was out on the whole damn thing.

I am interested in - do tell me about



Also, I've lost my memstick. The memstick that I'd put all the drabble-things on to transfer to the pc. Argh! *pulling hair*
It's somewhere in my room, but that's not actually helpful because there could be a dead kangaroo in my room at the moment and I wouldn't know. So, stories will be posted when I find it.
One bloody thing after another...

Why do I always remember enough of a story to make me interested again, but neither the title, the author nor the place I read it?

The latest one is (I think) a Harry/Snape I read last year, that followed the stages of the alchemical procedure (putrifaction, transmutation, purification, etc) and had colour/substance references (white=salt, red, black, all the others) AND I CANNOT FIND IT!!! I'm close to pulling hair out, it's been several days and my brain will not drop the damn thing!

Anyone heard of it? Amyone willing to ask around? Anything!

How can people be so stupid?
Also, the woman in the video linked to near the end horrifies me. I've been raised in a vaguely Christian family, but she horrifies me and I feel so extremely sorry for her children.

Oh god, have just finished reading all the missed entries on my flist, from 5 freaking weeks ago!
I have to be up at 8am tomorrow, oh god. *dies*

Also, Laura? You are so going to hate the xmas present I'm making for you it's not even funny.

And why the hell is the Isle of Skye so fucking far away?!

And the vicious cycle of comfort eating is biting my ever increasing ass, AGAIN! [Despite, or possibly because, of my attempts to give up chocolate. So not working.]

...

I've just started seeing things out of the corner of my eyes again, which is never a good sign. Especially as I'm the only one up at the moment, and I have a mild phobia of looking up and seeing something trouser-wettingly scary coming at me out of the shadow. That's it, I'm off to bed.

We currently possess a bag of 'Sirius' brand roasted peanuts, bought from Aldi. Also on offer was a frozen dessert (in several fruit-based flavours) called a 'Firenze'.

....

I'm not a rabid sad geek, honest.

Also? Am currently perfectly willing to go homicidal on the ass of whomever decided that doing a materia medica would be a good and useful thing for us students. I hate the freaking thing!

I read a wonderfully poignant little ficlet earlier, about Snape going to a muggle Catholic confession box. The priest listened, then told him that to really find redemption, he needed to be forgiven and reach atonement in his own eyes, not in someone else's. The final line was Snape thinking that if he had to forgive himself for redemption, he was truely damned.
AND NOW I CAN'T FIND THE THRICE-BEDAMNED LINK!
I've been through my entire net history twice. It's not there *stressed*
And now I really need to go to sleep.

I found http://www.livejournal.com/users/penknife/47467.html in a link from someone else's journal (that I was reading after seeing their art in the Andropotter communtity), and sometimes humanity really makes me sick. That people in power would blatently use that power to flaunt their prejudiced, homophobic views and make them into discriminatory laws just beggers belief. Civilised man, so advanced that they use petty, spiteful tactics to drive away people that they don't like.
America, land of the free. Yes, free so long as you CONFORM TO THE MASS-PERCEIVED 'NORMAL'. I like Europe. Europe has countries that don't pass laws like this, that are more accepting.
I would post something happier, but this has me incensed. I feel like stomping around, going 'Bloody Americans!', but I also have a sinus headache. *sulk*
