I honestly didnt know that it was possible to actually hate someone this fucking much! the mention of you fucking name brings out the rage in me. You stepping into this apartment makes me fucking sick. I. HATE. YOU. fuck you all that your are, even though that isnt much. i mean honestly, you are jobless, living off of daddys money while you fail classes and parade around town with you fucking pathetic excuse of a human boyfriend because he is all you have in the world because you push everyone away from you with your bitchy, twofaced ways. while a god portion of me hates you to bits, there is a small piece of me that is truely happy for you. you are getting what you deserve. and to be honest... i am sure that i could make it all the worse for you, but unlike you i am a civilized person, i respect my elders, and i talk like i have some brains about me. you on the other hand can eat a fucking dick. ugh! they say that the true opposite of liking someone is to be indifferent to their exsistance but im not thru hating you... this isnt over. this wont be over until you are gone. damnit <insert: i was gonna say woman but you dont deserve it you immature sorry little girl> i just want to hit you in the face. i have done it before and i would do it again but i dont particularly like that side of me and dont care to ever do that again. though, i like how you are scared of me now, wont show up here alone, locking youself in your room like im gonna come hunt you down or something, honey child, let me tell you something, if i wanted to come hunt you down i would have already done it. i know where you are staying, i walk right past it and your car every morning on the the way to work... thats right, i work, i pay my bills, im a grown up. more than you can say for damn sure. and if i really wanted to fuck you over i would have called the cops by now about all of the stuff that you gathered up that night that wasnt yours and have locked in you fucking room. theft, yeah... real cute. fucking bitch.

Hearing about some of the software developers my wife works with really pisses me off, especially because I applied for one of those positions. Sure, I didn't have much experience, but I had just as much education as most other programmers coming out of college.

Reasons I get pissed:
1. There's at least one programmer that apparently doesn't understand why it's bad to hard-code things. At least once a week I hear about something else that doesn't work because he's hard-coded something. I just don't get it. It's like programming 101. You can't predict what may or may not ever change, so never assume something isn't going to.
2. There's a number of programmers that apparently love to make the assumption, "oh, it's just a minor change it shouldn't break anything." Only after the code's been deployed IT FUCKING BREAKS SOMETHING. I just don't understand why they would ever make a change (no matter how minor) without at least some amount of testing. It truly baffles me. (well, I realize people are lazy, but for fuck's sake).

Sigh...

I'm getting tired of this. You're my best friend. Sometimes, you're the only human interaction that I get in a day.

You're also one of the most inconsiderate, rude, ignorant people I've met.

You can hold illogical grudges for crazy amounts of time. You have almost no concern for my emotions or my well-being. Whenever I try to have a serious conversation, you blow me off. You get pissed off whenever I try to call you out on anything that you do. You always manage to sound like a spoiled brat. You can't just end every conversation with:

My friend wrote:okayi'mleavingnowkthnksbai

*immediate hang up*


I don't want to deal with your garbage any longer. It happens every single day. I'm getting tired of it! I'm sick of your raving! I'm sick of your stupid obsession to that fictional character and that horrible tripe that dares to call itself a book series! I'm sick of you and your family and even your subconscious messing up my sexual orientation in your heads and teasing me about it.

I'M FUCKING SICK OF YOU!

I hate workshops. Not only do 90% of the writers suck, any negative comments have to be in the form of polite, constructive criticism. Usually, I just let the rage build inside (like a normal person) but [rage]seriously? First, your female narrator pretty much says (again and again and again) that "being a girl" means letting men dominate your relationships. OK, maybe the character just isn't very progressive. Then the strong female character is criticized for not "being a girl." OK, the same narrator said it, so same explanation as before. Then the strong female character is raped, with the context essentially implying she was punished for being a strong female...WTF? And then she's totally shattered by it, but after like two weeks her PTSD just floats away and she's better for the experience? Nobody's perfect, and when you write stories, you're bound to accidentally offend someone once in a while, but Jesus Fucking Christ, this is a fiction workshop, not a chauvinist propaganda workshop![/rage]

Less egregious but more pervasive: Grammar. It isn't that hard. I understand the occasional slip-up; I make them too. But I shouldn't have to be telling fellow college students that it should be "I don't understand grammar," she said. not "I don't understand grammar." she said. or "I don't understand grammar." She said.

This convention of the English language is quite unintuitive. I have to look it up whenever I use that construction and care enough to make sure I get it right... So yeah, in that case, it is that hard.

...you can interpret that as a rant against grammar nazis, I guess.

GOD DAMMIT!!!

I spend 45 minutes typing and retyping an email to a girl on match.com trying to sound like someone who knows how to put words together to make a coherent sentence. And when I finally get done and am happy with the result I hit send, its working, the computer is thinking, ok good, I go to the gym. I get back to a white screen, IT TIMED OUT. I hit back and my email is gone. FUCK! Now I am trying to retype what I lost and I cannot remember what I wrote, its looks like shit now. I fucking hate my computer.

Like always, you learn your lesson after its too late. From now on, instead of writing my emails in their little website boxes I'm typing them in gmail or MSoffice and then copying them over when Im done. Maybe firefox has an addon that will save forms, off to search now!

While not particularly angry, here is some definite rantage I've been needing to exhale.

Fetuses are freaky looking. Do people know that when they stick pictures of them all over their pro-life crap? I don't get it really, I mean that does not look like something I want growing inside me. They're just plain unsettling to look at, even when you don't take into account how it's not really possible to take pictures of that sort while the thing is alive and inside of a woman.

Also unpleasant to look at: blocky square cars. "The Cube", I want to hit you with a golf club.

When did e-mail get to be such a headache? I signed up for all this crap. Mostly, it was out of guilt. Then what do I do? I go home for the summer so I can't actually go to these events or participate in these clubs that I feel obligated to stay connected with for no tangible reason. Not helping things is the schools e-mail system which makes me sign in three times before I can see the 200 unread e-mails that have piled up, and only lets me see 10 at a time instead of the simpler one we used to have because people don't know better than to give their passwords out to any old e-mail that asks for it. Such is my understand at any rate.

Worse than e-mail is facebook. It is pure, uninterrupted, viral kipple. I have never been "friends" with so many people, and I can contact none of them. No one seems to hate it for the right reasons either. There has never been so much interconnectivity. And yet there is zero dialogue. Every aspect of the site is transient and vapid, not to mention counter intuitive and difficult to use. The lay-out was never good, so don't pretend like they ruined it.

Nerds, geeks, obsessive internet cultures, please understand everything is not for you. I can understand the nit-picking, and the insane attention to detail, but stop acting personally offended with your medium of choice doesn't immediately cater to your every inane whim. You are not the golden standard by which t.v. shows judge themselves. Artists should make things they want to. Collectively, what you are doing is discouraging innovative ventures and creative risk taking. That is how things worth liking are made in the first place.

This is why I hate the dentists. Most people assume that it's just something I had as a kid that I never got rid of but no, after having a majour operation on my mouth, having two teeth removed with out-of-date anesthetic (the dentist assured me it still worked. It didn't) and a botched set of braces put in (same dentist as before, about a week later. He no longer has a dentistry license and can never work for the NHS again), two more teeth removed (this time with working anesthetic, but it still was horrible), braces to correct the damage done by the first set, braces to do what the first set was supposed to do do in the first fucking place, two more teeth removed and a set of braces so that my pretty-good-to-start-with bottom jaw matches up and is in line with my top jaw, I think I have a pretty damn good reason to not get my cavities checked up on, thank you very much >:[

The last weekend has been very restless. I had stuff to do all over, a lot of it not very fun. And this week isn't going to be much better, I think. I have to look for a new place, I have to make do without a working fridge at my current apartment (and I worry I might get too crazy with ordering in etc.), I want to still fit in some yoga and sports and I need to find time to do my Japanese homework.

It's just very busy. And I feel the pressure. It's nothing too bad, but I'm not looking forward to this.

No, I have to convince myself that it will work out this next time, really.

Fuck me. For someone who's supposed to be so smart, I'm a serious idiot. Human brains are giant, sucky pieces of ass that have their own wills, damn them to the million hells that have been prophesied by now.

Sometimes I feel insecure about other peoples' entire personalities and how they relate to me, which makes me feel stupid, and then insecure again.

No, you don't have to move you and your only son, who happens to be my friend, 2000 miles just because you're a drunken, chain-smoking bitch. I just hope that he runs away and lives alone (after buying a Kindle, of course)-- It would be better than being brought up by you. Nobody could find themselves with as many opportunities as you, just to drink 8 beers a day, and smoke the rest of the time while the money and jobs fall by the wayside. Maybe this would make sense at 20, while you're alone, but you have responsibilities, and it takes your children's friends to tell you about it? Fuck off.

Reasoning will never make sense to you. I swear, other than the above example, you drink much more than anyone else I've ever known, yet we're related. I don't really care about your false promises and shit, you can go ahead and live the rest of your life alone. Forget shit, let other people steal my shit, go ahead, let my mentally unstable brother go without medication, but I won't forgive you once you get past your father, father. Fuck You.

North Korea- Thanks for restarting the Korean War, you complete motherfucking dumbshits. If you want to be blown off the face of the planet because of your incompetency, you can ask politely. Fuck you.

Fuck Phillips screwheads. Seriously, the most idiotic idea I've heard of that is widely promoted by otherwise intelligent people. Fuck, the strip in a moment, and it's not like they're cheaper than Roberts. Fuck Americans and their stupid standards.

I actually prefer Philips to Robertson. With a Philips you can use the same screw for many different types and it slides in the head much more easily (unlike a Robertson that might need some wiggling to place it properly). Anything is better than a flat drive, though.

A flat head would be decent except for most of them going all the way out the sides, so you can't keep the damn bit in there.

Phillips does piss the hell out of me. They strip easily, and then that's it. The screw's fucked, the bit's fucked, and you're not moving it until you get a new bit.

And so many standards are a bitch like this, where some transient need appears, slaps you with its junk, then walks away, and you have to suffer through it for eternity.

Here's a little list:
QWERTY
Phillips screws
The Linux directory tree
Microsoft buying out OEMs and taking a huge shit on mindshare by bundling their software with hardware
MTP. There was nothing wrong with USB Mass Storage. There is EVERYTHING wrong with MTP, and my MP3/WMV player only uses MTP.
WMV. Actually, all closed video standards.
Flash Video. Deserves a second one.
YouTube, because it uses Flash, because it uses Flash Video, and because it does not, to my knowledge, allow any video downloading.
KDE 4 Plasmoids. I tried to make one once, and I felt like strangling someone. Like a core KDE developer. Plasmoids should be EASY to make.
Tabs vs. spaces. This is where a standard SHOULD exist, but doesn't. Spaces are entirely the wrong solution for indentation.
Flash. Fuck it.
Cell phones and their bizarre closed standards and lack of usability. My phone has a camera, a microphone, and a speaker, yet I can't really "use" any of them due to software lock-out. I can even record and playback sounds, in a taunting mockery of real functionality. "Ha, you can record this, but not transfer it anywhere! :P" Fuck you, Motorola. And Nextel, I guess. Whoever made the software and decided that I didn't need the chance to have it improved, ever.
MP3. Ugh.
Lossless MP3. Ew.
GNOME and its inability to line up icons.

.. That's all for now.

See, my books are all neatly arranged on a bookshelf, because I never, ever read.

The only reason my room's not tlike that t the moment is because I've only just moved in. My room before was on a par with that.
Spelling and grammar can go screw themselves.
