[ mood | aggravated ]

sometimes, i am seriously tempted with the impulse of needing to bash someone's skull in.

on this message board, i'm a member - someone asked a question on a specific point of religious doctrine. i ,stupidly in retrospect, answered the question - respectfully, politely & correctly (& that was my apparent downfall).

their response was to accuse me of religious fucking persecution & petition to have me banned from the board as a bigot. . . a fucking bigot!!!

ime? a religious bigot?

it's such a dementedly absurd accusation, i didnt even know what to say to it.

but then i made it worse {{{smacks self in the head}}} - the fucking moron started pm-ing me. i tried to explain using something called "logic", but that was an exercise in futility since it went way-the-fuck over the morons head. now, i *think* that i'm being insulted through peculiar big brother-esque jargon, but since it doesnt make any sense, i can't quite be certain.

why, oh why, must people be such fucking wackjobs?

Cell Phones in New Jersey While Driving


The State of New Jersey has just made driving while using a cell phone a primary offense. This means that police can now pull you over solely because you are talking on the phone. This also includes text messaging. A conviction or guilty plea to this offense will be considered as a conviction / plea for "unsafe driving". While this is a no-point violation, it carries a $ 250.00 surcharge meaning that this ticket will cost anywhere from $ 380.00 - $ 439.00 for the first offense.

as i understand this is only for hand-held cellphones. however for anyone with an intermediate license - there is a total cell phone ban, including hands-free cellphones.

Cassadine musings . . . [Thursday, January 10th, 2008

[ mood | aggravated ]

everytime i write them, Stefan in particular, dictionary.com becomes my best friend.

granted spelling is not a particular strong suite of mine, but i never realized how enormously huge the gap existed between words i commonly use & can actually spell (for the most part at least) as opposed to the rest of my vocabulary actually was.

it's mildly disturbing.

for example, it took me something like 5 freaking minutes to get close enough to impertinence for the online dictionary to even be able to guess WTF word, i actually wanted. normally, i'd just use the sneaky backdoor thesaurus method, but i couldn't find a precise enough synonym (totally cut & paste, btw, because that is a word i will probably never be able to spell) to find it.

it's annoying. but, in retrospect, not nearly as bad as the time i needed to spell "epiphany" for a paper once. i literally spent 45 minutes on that one, but that was years before dictionary.com existed. as i recall, i eventually broke down & called someone.

anyway . . . Stefan is a fun bastard to write, just really bloody difficult.

[ mood | bitchy ]

so Borders in Willowbrook is bloody closing! this is an actual freaking tragedy as far as i'm concerned, granted it's not as tramatic as death or a car accident, surgery, etc, but a tragedy nonetheless.

the only other Borders in the area is a tiny one, way the hell up 23 North & totally inaccesible for those of us without a car, like me currently. so, now i'm left with B&N which i can't stand (nasty employees), which is even farther than the tiny Border's & equally inaccesible.

so it looks like it will be amazon.com for me in the forseeable future which sucks! i LIKE bookstores goddammit! arrrggghhhhh, i can't believe in the size of Wayne-freakin'-NJ there is only 1 bookstore in the entire bloody town.

if this isn't a sign of the impending apocalypse, then i don't know what is.

in other ominous tidbits of news, i've joined facebook, despite my general scorn & distaste for "social networking sites." i had a reason, not a very good reason, but it was a reason, despite it's stupidity. so feel free to add me.

5. "I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." skyth

16. "'Cause Chevy didn't make a 327 in '55, the 327 didn't come out till '62. And it wasn't offered in the Bel Air with a four-barrel carb till '64.

[ mood | confused ]

ok . . . in 2000-ish, Alexis was getting married to Ned & she was using Elton as her wedding coordinator (this was the runaway bride incident). for some reason, i'm convinced that Carly was either the Maid/Matron of Honor or was in the bridal party - something about Elton roping her into it & her attempt to be psuedo-friendly with Alexis because of Alexis' relationship as Sonny's laywer.

does anyone remember if this actually in the show or am i simply out of my mind? it is bugging the hell outta me.

dedicated in memory of Megan Meier [Monday, November 19th, 2007
at 1:50am ]
[ mood | horrified ]

i just came home from the glorious VNV concert with the wonderful nitecountess & immediately popped over to search for a recommended video of "Illusion" by VNV

so while it played i checked one of my messages boards & found this article read it, then watch the video, listening to the song. societal pressures, trying to live to an impossible standard, technology fractured identity is a dangerous brew.

enough to break hearts, it was certainly enough to break my heart . . .

there is so much i could say about this debacle, but in the end, i'm not sure what would even be the point, since apparently this "adult" broke no laws & as much as it sickens me to say, per the latest reports i read, legally there will be no repercussions against her. the ultimate irony is that this woman sought to file charges against the very family she destroyed.

Megan never had the chance to see her 14th birthday & may never get the justice she & her family deserve, but she isn't forgotten.

it's 5:01 & i've just knocked off the last Harry Potter . . . lol & oddly enough i'm ok. it was good, not as good as earlier books, much better that that travesty that was HBP, but not as good as AoP. {{{shrugs}}} well, i was vindicated in 5 suppositions & wrong on three, but one of those went both ways, so it's more of a scratch - all in all, not too bad of a count. most, but not all questions were answered, for me at least - other's opinions may differ.

it's been a great ride, but now that it's all over . . . {{{insert a terribly articulate thought that i dare not post, for fear of hinting at a spoiler - to be filled in at a later date}}}

so for now, i'm ending this post, before i really do start ranting about plot points & spoilers.

"to the East i might stumble
to the West i would crawl
and if North is the winter
then South is the fall
and if i had my way
i'd make the clock rewind
i'd live again that moment
though i know i'll never find
the future that i missed
a parallel line
where the world would be so bright
that it could make us all go blind"
