You think you had a bad dream? Check this out. Last night I dreamt I was in bed and my cat crawled up and started kneading my chest. I was annoyed by it because it was late and I was tired. This went on for 3 minutes despite me not giving him any attention so finally I flipped him around on his back and positioned myself on top. He said "what are you doing?" but I said nothing. Then he looked terrified at what he knew was about to happen. I pulled my boxers down slowly. He tried to break free but I wouldn't let him. I entered him quickly. He whimpered and turned his head so he wouldn't have to face me, but it wasn't loud, mostly under his breath, which signalled to me that he had already accepted this outcome psychologically. As time continues the whimpering stops and he is totally silent for the duration. I finish and roll over on my back beside him. He lays there for a while, then quietly gets up and sits on the side of the bed. Then he puts his pants on and goes toward the door.
"Hey," I said. He stopped but didn't turn around. "Nobody's purrfect."
HALP!

Got the car back.  The lady was actually genuinely nice this time and went pretty quickly to pull the car around.  Asked again what this recall was about and she goes "oh no, it's nothing dangerous!  See the physical OnStar button on the top there?"  (the one I'm never going to use) "Well they want to change it out.  I guess they changed the design of the image on the front of it or something." 

...

:dead

HOW THE HELL IS THAT A "RECALL!?"
She was going on and on about how this was super-important on Monday.  :doge

Fuck.  :lol :dizzy :lol :dizzy

I called it. It's a ten cent button and an hour of labor.

Life's going pretty good so far. I've been insanely lucky.
And the whole time in my head I'm like "This is suspicious, life's totally letting me get comfortable before unleashing an ungodly amount of fuckery on me."
And I totally know there's going to be some minor inconvenience and I'll be like, "That's it! I fucking knew it! Life sucks!"

She called back on Monday to say the part was there.  I said "can I just get this done whenever the car needs maintenance?"  And she goes right back to "THIS IS A RECALL SO IT NEEDS TO BE DONE ASAP."  Uh, right.  Maybe the weekend after next we'll go dump the car off and go to eat in the area while they do this crap.  Maybe.

If that's all it is why are you going?  they're not going to do anything if you miss the recall and it doesn't void anything so who cares?  They suck.  Take it to another dealer and they'll also do the recall and probably won't smash your balls in a vice like these people.  I would have ignored their call.

I don't mind dropping it off to "finish" this if they can actually get it done in a short enough amount of time.  Also because my wife happens to really like a restaurant nearby and it's an excuse to go eat there.    :lol  But am certainly not rushing back. 

Sure as hell never going back there when it's time to get even just an oil change, even with the first one being free (thankfully this perk is honored at any service center).  Just glad that all of this has also been free because fuck paying for service this shitty.

Gym shut down early because the county got put into a travel watch (it's -13, wind gusts of 23mph, wind chill of -36), only got half my work out in. I had actually planned to do quite a bit extra today as it was going to be the first time in a while I was going to have extra time, but in reality I was feeling weak and tired as hell anyway.

I'm trying to weasel my way out of an event with a bunch of people I don't want to see but of course a couple of them are trying to call me out on my bullshit excuses and I'd just want to tell them that I don't want to see them, leave me alone goddammit, but I can't do confrontation of any sort so I'm just stuck making more excuses and hoping they let go.

When will I stop making any sort of acquaintances since other people want to do disgusting human interaction stuff and I just want to be a complete hermit and never have to talk to anyone. Also when will I learn to just say no, I'm a massive pushover. And since I'm so clearly a regular life of the party, why the fuck do these people always insist that I take part  ::)

The ceiling fan light in my game room started going out on Friday.  It's one of those LED lights where they tout that it will last two-three decades without needing to be replaced.  I think it lasted for 2.5 years. 

You can't just get a replacement (maybe possible through the company?) and rather than worry about it, I decided to take it down and just put up a regular old bulb fixture instead- I like using smart bulbs in this room and this gave me an excuse to put another one up.

Has me mildly concerned that some of the other fixtures we put up over the past few years are also just gonna conk out like this one did.  It's not particularly difficult to put these things up and they don't cost much, but still- makes me miss just changing out a light bulb instead.

I try to avoid naps for this very reason, but I was naive enough to think it wouldn't happen this time. The worst thing is that I only felt tired because I was re-adjusting to a different schedule (something that's become more difficult as I've aged).

ATM ate a check I was trying to deposit, so I go inside to let someone know, instead of a teller, I get someone in an office...who wants to know my SSN, my working status/history, all my contact info, and makes sure that I know they will revoke the temporary credit they're giving me if they don't find the check in there.

When I  :what at my working status had to do with anything, the answer was a pause, an "uhhhh" and then "well there are benefits sometimes". :huh


The whole thing was quite weird. I didn't really care for being treated like I was trying to scam the bank over a $30 birthday check. Especially when there was a camera watching me put the check into the ATM and not getting it back, along with everything I tried to do on the screen.

Mine's about to go for sure. It doesn't stay on without a signal. It's supposed to show "no signal", then go into standby, but it just turns off. With a signal, it takes a couple tries, but stays on. Something inside the power supply has gone sideways, for sure.
If it's just some caps that need replacing it'll be an easy and inexpensive repair, but I'm gonna use it as an excuse to get a new unit. :doge

I'm interested in seeing how long it takes from now on to completely die.

Also, shopping for new monitors is an inconvenience in itself. 1080p still dominates, 1440p hasn't caught up at all and is markedly more expensive. :shaq2

Yeah, but you have to use something like this to get pixel perfect scaling, even at integer ratios, because reasons.

I think 1440p can look decent on 4K screens, but I haven't looked into it much.

Itís pretty embarrassing to have to ask your wife to help you bathe and sit on the toilet. I can only sleep in one position and my left arm falls asleep because I hold it in a weird position to keep the road rash from hitting the covers or bed. I waddle everywhere I go all stiff legged at like .2 mph.

Was at the movies yesterday getting my animu on watching Battle Angel.  This was a morning show and there were parents there with little kids who totally shouldn't have been watching this movie.  Them getting up and leaving was understandable and not really a distraction.

But about a quarter through the movie, this little kid with a big drink started coming into the theater and would sit down next to us, drink everything, leave, and then come back in a few minutes later (the theater has free refills).  He kept doing this over and over again to the point where it started getting annoying, because he kept walking in front of us.  He wasn't actually watching the movie, so I guess he was just that bored of whatever movie his family was watching.  Maybe he was going in and out of more than one movie.

Also noticed several other people coming and going, albeit with less frequency.  Have never been to a movie before with such a noticeable number of people who kept getting up and leaving/coming back before.  Dunno what the hell was going on.   :lol
