I've heard of her before. I mean, okay, if that's what people want to pay for. Frankly I would be more likely to pay people not to touch me. NO CUDDLES. Seriously I do not see what is so great about cuddling.

I see that there is a police officer nearby, so I put on the emergency flashers and go out to ask him if he can offer any kind of assistance.)

Me: “Officer, I—”

Cop: “You can’t park there.”

(I’m slightly baffled as to why he thought I am voluntarily parked there, as my emergency flashers are clearly on and I am visibly panicking and near tears.)

Me: “I’m sorry, I’m not parked; my car broke down. I was just wondering—”

Cop: “You can’t park there. This is a parade route.”

Me: “I’m sorry, I had no idea there would be a parade. I was only passing through when my car broke down—”

Cop: “You’re going to have to drive it around that corner down there. There’s a parking lot a ways down.”

Me: “…Sir, my car broke down. I can’t drive it.”

Cop: “Well, you can’t park there.”

Me: *nearly crying, and getting angry* “Sir, I can’t help that my car broke down. I can’t drive it. I was wondering if—”

Cop: “Well, get in, start it, and put it in drive. You can’t be parked here. The parade’s coming through soon.”

Me: “Sir, I already told you, I can’t drive it. I hit the accelerator and it doesn’t go.”

Cop: “Well, you’ll have to move. I already told you you can’t park there.”

(Fortunately, a couple of wonderful gentlemen came by at that point, saw that I was panicked, and pushed my car a few blocks away to a parking lot where I could leave it until I could get a tow and a ride.)
That cop is an idiot.

I was talking about the fanfic stuff (more specifically the 11 year old Harry/Snape thing).

I did say posts, not pages. =P

Wow that's easily the most depressing thing I've heard in a long time.

I just can't help but wondering, she knows that's not her son or her daughter in law and her grandchild. Deep down she knows. So how far into the fantasy does she go? It's that kind of thing I can't help think about. How far will she take it if she knows deep down that she's just paying some actors to act the part of her family. That's just..very very sad.

That's on par with like, having a shrine for long gone loved ones, though different at the same time.

Started a new layout for that Mega Man tribute thingy I was working on. It's completely different and driving me insane. My anatomy looks like wet noodles.

I threw on Meghurmurns expression just so I didn't have to stare at his creepy blank face while working on everything else.

Lined up to get my flu shot. Bleh. I'd rather get a flu shot than the flu, BUT I still hate needles. Also, cue the dozen or so screaming kids who think a simple prick is the worst pain they'll ever experience...

Why do you assume I was frustrated?

Is it because I had said earlier that I was in a douchey mood? That didn't mean I was in a bad mood, it meant I felt like being a douchebag.

Some would argue it's a mood I'm often in.
