Moa: The King of Destruction

Less news than after I posted it

Updates: I have no phone service in my apartment; the ass-bastard says his previous appointment took too long, but he's willing to drop off the cabinet doors and the key and let me do the work myself, which is fine with me at this point just to get that damn key in my hands - then his phone dropped the call and I can't get in touch with him (I'll try again in a few minutes); and I don't really think I'm going to get much more done today than a function which reads, almost in its entirety: /* Note to self: Make this do stuff. */

Bill Gates doesn't want to be the world's richest man. Um, dude... I will TOTALLY solve that problem for you. All it takes is one final signature, preferably on a check with my name in the "Pay to the order of" blank and a lot of money in the amount section.

A giant premature baby. Well, maybe not GIANT giant, but it seems to be pretty big. That would make it recognizable in the event that the baby's grandmother delivers the baby to the wrong address. Old people can be dangerous.

A woman in Mishawaka eats a sandwich with a razor blade in it, proving once again that Indiana has some of the weirdest city names ever.

A guy celebrates his release from jail by being arrested again. Good old Ogden Dunes, Indiana. MishaWAKA. MiSHAwaka.

A picky family gets kicked out of a Chinese buffet for wasting food. Right on! I can't believe people think they can fill up plates, not eat the food, go back for more, and get away with it.

A wanted woman hides in the dryer. She might have remained hidden had she not tried to be clever and steer them further astray by making dryer noises. "Whooooooooooooooooom... I'm laundry in a dryer..."

Here's a German company that specializes in giant shoes. They make shoes for the world's 10 tallest people for free. Yao!

This guy makes a big show of cutting in line while people enjoy the biggest gas promotion ever, then gets caught with pot in his car. "No need to pay attention to me, everyone! I'm completely inconspicuous! Hey, doesn't anybody out there notice how inconspicuous I am?"

Two votes could have swung this election, and this candidate's two sons didn't vote. I'm actually almost glad... anyone who doesn't vote shouldn't, says I. But we got into that during the build-up to the last election, and while I lost "friends" over it, I stand by my principles of not having principles.

If only someone paid mothers for their work, they'd be rich. You know what we say to that study? If any mother demands to be paid for her child-rearing work, we say "Okay. We'll just take the kid off your hands and you won't have to do the work anymore." Harsh words, I know, but the world doesn't work like that. The only people who want anyone to have kids are parents, I'm pretty sure. The world and our society discourage having children, and I"m not entirely against that idea. Let's all die out! Actually, I don't know what I think anymore. Nor does anyone else. Too many mixed messages about having kids. I'm going to go do some work now.

Hey, it's almost lunchtime.

Heading home, hopefully to working phone service

I'll be lugging my laptop to the condo when I get back, but I don't know when I'll be online, if at all. If the phone service isn't working, not at all. I'll try to remember to keep my cell phone on in either case, since I'm going to be stuck with dial-up for the immediate future. If anyone needs me, that's the way to go. Those who have a need to call me should either have my cell phone number already or should be able to contact someone who does.

Speaking of which, purpleparadox's birthday is on Sunday, and this may be the last chance I have to wish her a happy one. So have a great birthday, and also great days on the days that aren't your birthday... because it would really suck to have all the greatness in a year compressed into a single day.

(no subject)

aluminumstudios and illwait4uthere have birthdays tomorrow... do either of them read this?

I got another load of boxes of books moved over, which was pretty small, but now I get to drag all of the boxes home again to be refilled with manga. Hopefully, that plus the bigger boxes that I can't lug myself will carry most of the rest of my collection, and the remainder can be moved later. As long as the bookcases and DVD cases are empty, the computer desk and futon are disassembled, and there's room to move them all out by Sunday morning, we're in as good a shape as we can possibly be. I don't look forward to driving the truck, but if sakanagai can do it, I ought to be able to.

And that's about it for today. Gotta be movin' on.
