i miss the san francisco bay area….my feelings on this topic haven’t changed since my driving down 101 entry from 2011…my location has changed, i live in chester county now…i’ve also become more political, which is good and bad…it’s good because i give a shit about what’s going on in my borough, county, state (or commonwealth lol) and country….but it’s bad because the county i live in is heavily populated with republicans
Yesterday, 1/20/2013 was our first wedding anniversary ♥! And the folks who created the word game that brought us together wished us happy anniversary on twitter, which is incredibly awesome!!!
here’s a text that i sent to mr. bot this afternoon:
“In the spirit of the upcoming new year, I accepted gingersnapbot’s fb request. But be warned, if she posts preachy assed shit on my fb again, I won’t hesitate to delete her again. Sorry if that sounds bitchy but I really don’t need anymore pointless drama or unsolicited advice in my life but I do understand that she is 1/4 of toddlerbot’s parent team.”
why did i accept her friend request, despite our past social media based drama (not to mention the real life drama)? because i’m trying to make an effort to stay on decent terms with toddlerbot’s dad, mainly because i don’t want the kiddo to grow up thinking that i stood in the way of him maintaining a relationship w/ his dad. unfortunately, gingersnapbot is officially mrs. bot now and also the mother of mr. bot’s 1 year old daughter…i acknowledge that dealing with her is going to be an important part of keeping the peace between toddlerbot’s dad and i…besides, i miss and love mr. bot’s family, particularly the ex-inlawbots, and if i have any hopes of staying off their shit list, i have to swallow the contempt building up inside of me and keep the lines of communication between gingersnapbot and i open…
her comment on the whole acceptance of friend request thing:
“my babydaddybabymama. Or is that my stepbabymama?”
I have to say, I am already regretting letting her back into my social media stream…I just want to paddle away…
i’m almost positive i’ve written about this online before…but maybe it was in some dead blog/journal from years ago i can’t remember now…at any rate, it’s that time of year again—the season of the poinsettia-infestation…christmas trees i can live with, but the poinsettias make me cringe…i remember one december during my high school years when i was living w/ my aunt V, being left at home during the holiday season while she went with her husband to Germany with one of those wretched crimson plants as my only company…i was given the option to go to Germany, but i worked in retail and risked losing my job if i took off more than a few days—and besides, aunt V charged me for living with her which i’m pretty sure wasn’t legal and i couldn’t afford to lose my job or else i wouldn’t be able pay her the $ she required…so anyway, ever since then i’ve hated poinsettia plants…they’ve become the symbol for everything i hate about the holidays…don’t get me wrong — there’s a lot to like about the holidays, but i do have a lot of not-so-great holiday memories that have all become associated with that stupid plant…although they aren’t as toxic as the urban legends have lead us to believe, their presence is poisonous to my disposition…overly dramatic, i know…
I colored Rick in with Paint…He looks much more like the toy this way :)
Funko Pop! needs to make a Glenn figure! It’d be awesome..
My version of the Funko Pop Vinyl RV walker….I added the red blood squiggles….
I totally want this toy…the top pic is my drawing based on the Funko Pop! Vinyl Toy (see bottom pic) inspired by the AMC show which is based on the comic book series. I also want the Walking Dead MiniMates…Particularly the TRU exclusive set with Glenn….
clw, toddlerbot and I decided to go to the local wegmans since we’d never been to one before and i have to say i was taken aback by the awesome selection. anyway, the international foods section actually had nanami togarashi which is something you don’t see at giant foods or weis…when i saw the nanami, i almost cried…not really, but i was making a lot of “eeeeeeeee!!!” and other assorted noises of surprise and joy while finding things that i’d been craving for i don’t know how long. anyway, i ended up buying a small tub of miyasaka awase miso paste, a package of hakubaku soba and a little cube of morinu firm tofu which i later turned into a filling decent tasting soup after adding some organic chicken broth that i had in the cupboard and frozen broccoli that was in the freezer…this concoction was based loosely on a recipe for miso soup on the morinu website…anyway, i think i did a decent job considering that i didn’t have dashi soup stock or green onions and the fact that i’d never used miso paste before (i’ve always used that instant miso soup powder which has the freeze dried tofu and stuff in it …just add water etc).
unrelated to my soup, i was also very happy that wegmans had jacob’s cream crackers because they taste good but especially because they make me think of my grandma….
when i first started this job in mid june i quit smoking. today i have officially started smoking again much to my chagrin…well i need to get back to work… :(
on monday, while driving around not too far from our apartment saw 2 vehicles with confederate flag front vanity license plates. sunday, i saw a parked truck less than 5 miles from where we live with a confederate flag plate. that’s 3 in 24 hours….am i being oversensitive or is there validity in my reaction and consequent semi-heightened level of fear?
i have a bleeping redirect virus on my computer that i can’t get rid of and it is driving me bonkers…i’ve tried so many free programs with very little results…
Free Antivirus/Antispyware programs that didn’t make my redirect virus go away (at least while browsing via firefox)
3. I0Bit (detected some infected items but didn’t fix whatever is causing this redirect problem)
5. Spyware Blaster
7. Panda Cloud
8. Spyzooka (detected the most spyware, but would not remove for free)
9. Ad-Aware (I have McAfee on my computer and this isn’t compatible with that)
10. Norton Power Eraser
11. Microsoft Security Essentials
I’ve tried others too but my optics are heavy and my circuits feel rusty…I’ll update later…
