My sis and her family have left.
I can finally hear myself think again for the first time in a week and a half (that may or may not be a good thing…we all know what happens when I think too much).
Tomorrow I plan on sleeping as much of the day away as I possibly can. I won’t have a big-old plastic truck being pushed up and down the hardwood floors right on the other side of the wall from where my head is as I try and fail to sleep.
Tuesday, my mom has a doctor’s appointment (she hurt her leg at the gym tripping on some weights; it got infected pretty badly, and if it had happened 20 years ago the doc said her leg would have had to be amputated but with modern medicine her odds of keeping it are pretty good). I may sleep a lot that day as well.
Then, Wednesday, I start trying to get an ID. We’re just going to go to the DMV with my old California ID (which expired in 2012), my birth certificate, and my parents’ tax return from last year showing that they claim me as a dependent, and hope for the best.
Don’t you love how reporters love to forget what their jobs are and like to attempt to put things in people’s mouths?
Just for for the sake of accuracy, I feel the need to point out the fact that it was not a reporter who asked that question. It was a heckler.
Did you know these are the same dancers from the Chimney scene in Mary Poppins!?!
Still defining epic, after all these years.
this makes me so happy every time i see this
And I get angry every time I see this because IT’S NOT TRUE.
Spoiler Chat: Family Ties
Monica T.: Tell me more about this shocking Once Upon a Time twist!! Dying to know who else is related.
We will find out that two main characters are related, and because they are related, that means that two other characters are also related. Your brain hurt yet? Ours too. Still, we think this twist is one of the best OUAT has ever had.
This is why I stopped watching the show. The only goal the writers seem to have is to see how confusing of a family tree they can create. It’s like a Pixar universe theory gone mad.
Another Night Vale episode come and gone and successfully transcribed. At least I think I can call it successful — the end was hard to figure out how to format for tumblr. I could have just left out the background speech but I think it works as long as people are either reading along while they listen or if they take note of the indented words while concentrating more on what Cecil is saying. Guess I should probably reserve judgement on success until I get feedback on it.
Sis’ kids are already up and running laps through the house. Just two more days until I can sleep in relative quiet, with only stepdad’s occasional stomping and slamming of doors to contend with (the man is like a bull in a china shop — along with his complete and total lack of tact he also has a remarkable lack of grace when he moves). Just a little over a month until my parents’ next vacation, when I can actually sleep in peace.
Wow, what a mess I have made of my life.
Until their vacation, though, it’s time to take enough sleeping pills to get me through all but the extra-loud stuff so I can grab a few hours of sleep before the kids get really hyper.
Until next time, I leave you with the wise words of Mayor Pamela Winchell:
"Drink plenty of water, but leave some water in case of fire."
Goodnight, tumblr. Goodnight.
I never thought I’d be googling Katy Perry lyrics to properly transcribe Welcome to Night Vale.
But I’m digging this episode. I’ve always had a bit of a curiosity about this particular subject matter.
I’m taking a quick break as The Weather plays. Although I should probably put the recording back at regular speed during the music. I listen at half speed as I transcribe so I can keep up with my typing (but when I transcribe the intros, I have to rewind a lot — transcribing Joseph Fink, whichever Joseph Fink it is, is almost like trying to transcribe the Micro Machines guy).
Anyway, the weather is almost over, so it’s back to typing for me. Then I get to listen at regular speed while I proof-read my work.
OK, finally everyone’s gone to bed. I can start typing up the new Night Vale.
White privilege is your history being taught as a core class and mine being taught as an elective.
please let them know.
white privilege is your history being taught as a core class, and mine being banned because it would promote "the overthrow of the U.S. government, foster racial resentment, and advocate ethnic solidarity."
Netflix knows exactly what I like.
