MOURNFUL BITCHING AHEAD. Feel free to exercise your scroll function.

Today I have had:
  • a $100 hold put on my debit card for getting $40 in gas (that means $140 out of pocket for those without math capabilities)
  • been told my laptop, ordered on 6-05, will not get here until 7-05
  • hung up the LAST of the god damned curtains that have taken forever to finish, only to find it is TOO SHORT
  • sat with my head in my hands as my older two whacked at each other with pool cues. For the third time today.
  • have been UTTERLY SWINDLED by Marriott hotels.

(they failed to use my reward points for my hotel room, charging me 200 bucks for a room I expected to be free. Please see the additional amount out of pocket due to gas purchase.) I would like to state for the record that Marriott is a lying bunch of liars, are cheats, and thieves, and I hope it isn't passing anyone's notice that they are MORMON OWNED. By the way, little factoid: Utah County (home of Provo and BYU) is the NUMBER ONE COUNTY IN THE U.S. FOR FRAUD. The state is the fifth overall worst in numbers of cases. Less than 2 million in the whole state. Think of that in comparison to FL and CA. Cheaters and THIEVES.

I plan on drinking copious amounts of alcohol, sitting outside as the lightening bugs come out, and enjoying the company of my sister, who will hopefully give me a massage. This has been a bad, no good, utterly horrible and frustrating day. Bleh.

Oh! One last thing. And tomorrow we leave to spend the next few days with my In Laws. Including the Bro and Sis in law who hate me for some unknown reason, and make fun of me (wtf?) when I'm not there. So. I'm totally ready for a throw down, is what you should read into that. WHEE.

Oh dear. *pats* That all sounds terrible. Someone's had a bad day alright!

Also, goodness gracious. I keep learning all of these random Mormon facts from you and I love it. I had no clue that Marriott was owned by Mormons.

Aaaand: Lightning bugs! I wish there were lightning bugs where I lived! One of the saddest things about South Florida to me is the lack of lightning bugs. *sigh*
Jun. 27th, 2008 11:01 pm (UTC)
Yep - that's why they have Book of Mormons in the dresser drawer, not a Gideon's bible!

I weep for you lack of lightening bugs! *hugs*

*HUGS* That sucks ass. All of it. I'm sorry. Will looking at these guys make you feel better?

Hot men cure all. Michael was a gamble but I know you like long and lean.
Jun. 27th, 2008 11:05 pm (UTC)
Yeah. Uh... yeah. Hominah.
Jun. 27th, 2008 11:07 pm (UTC)
Yeah and from an athlectic standpoint the boy is all that. I need to do a phelps spam soon. *gives you bucket for drool*
Jun. 27th, 2008 10:47 pm (UTC)
Oh, that suuuuuucks! You get a do-over NO QUESTION! ♥

Goodness gracious, oldest two, can you not? *gives them a fence to paint*

Bleh to having to hang out with people who are lame and don't love you to pieces. Just think about them acting as extras (i.e., zombie fodder) in the next horror film you have a starring role in!
Jun. 27th, 2008 11:03 pm (UTC)
Hahaha, they just: vaccumed the entire downstairs, swept, mopped all tiled surfaces, and now The Boy is picking up yard litter outside in the heat to wear him out while #2 is crafting a board game with Emily out of the comics, a deck of cards, and nickels. ??

I think I need to climb into your lap and take a nap. Cool with you? :( and *squishes*
Jun. 27th, 2008 11:06 pm (UTC)
Absolutely! *braids your hair and makes white russians for us both* <3

Misery loves company, so I will add to your whine and cheese party by saying I got back from the dentist an hour ago. It was a lovely trip, as always. I have a weird nerve structure for my teeth and it takes a bizarre amount of novocaine to get me numb enough to do work (not completely numb, by the way- it still aches a little when they drill). The final shot he could give me (4- 2 regular doses, 2 super duper extra special novocaine doses)hit my blood stream and my heart about pounded its way out of my chest. Dude, thought I was going to pass out I got so anxious. But its over and now the entire side of my face is numb (though my teeth?not so much) and will be for hours yet.

It was just a freaking cavity, not some dental surgery. I'm fucked up, yo.

Jun. 27th, 2008 11:05 pm (UTC)
Good lord!! Next time, tell them to give you the gas, that way you at least get to trip out before the pain sets in. *HUGS*

We need lots of wine and/or tequila and food that is bad for us and a marathon card game. Can you jam yourself and the sundries in the fwoomp tube? I'll put a cushion under my end in case you land face first. :(
Jun. 27th, 2008 11:38 pm (UTC)
I will fwoomp!

Sorry for making your misery ALL ABOUT ME. That's just how I roll.

(No really, sorry!)
Jun. 28th, 2008 12:25 am (UTC)
(Puh, we tight. Like 10 toes in a sock.)

I have made pink margaritas and they are yummy. I got a nice long hug from the Mr. and feel far more soothed than before. I want you to feel soothed, too. *grabby hands*
Jun. 27th, 2008 11:08 pm (UTC)
*hugs* I'm sorry your day was so suck! Enjoy the copious amounts of alcohol and I hope feel better!
Jun. 27th, 2008 11:10 pm (UTC)
I think a hilariously bad movie might need to be added to the agenda, as well.

*leans against you*
Jun. 27th, 2008 11:18 pm (UTC)
Maybe some more hilariously bad centaur fic? Always entertaining!
Jun. 27th, 2008 11:19 pm (UTC)

the sun'll come out tomorrow?.. or if not, the BIL and SIL sound like ready-made punching bags..
Jun. 27th, 2008 11:23 pm (UTC)
I LIKE THE LATTER ONE. Plus, instant upper body workout!
Jun. 27th, 2008 11:23 pm (UTC)
That sucks. Ican't really help with the others, but maybe head over to consumerist.com for help with the Mariott thing.
Jun. 27th, 2008 11:29 pm (UTC)
Oooooh. I thank you for that! *ZOOM!*
Jun. 27th, 2008 11:31 pm (UTC)
Poor bebe! You need someone to bring you a big ol' pitcher of margaritas. Hope your evening has 103% less suckage than your day and that you have a good trip with a minimum of in-law drama.
Jun. 28th, 2008 12:26 am (UTC)

I *have* a pitcher of margaritas!!! Was that you? ;) And even though I'm an atheist, re: your last sentence, but nonetheless I say from your lips to God's ears!
Jun. 28th, 2008 12:33 am (UTC)
Heh. Me too, but I figure that it never hurts to use any weapon at your disposal when dealing with the in-laws. Man, what's up with that? Does everyone just universally look at their in-laws and wonder, "How did this family manage to produce my spouse!?" It's a head-scratcher.

*raises margarita* Thought you'd like that. ;)

Jun. 28th, 2008 12:27 am (UTC)
Poor Stoney. :pets: You've had a busy day of unpleasant things. Good thing is the day is about over.

Hm, I suggest the Presidential Letter to the head of Marriott. (Or just writing LIES!!! ASK ME HOW! in the Book in the nightstand, hee.)

And maybe with the fam you should sit and say all the shit they'd say about you as if you're talking about someone else, and yuk it up and that would probably totally ruin their fun in doing it when you're gone. Because you'd be so much wittier, and they wouldn't even be able to be snotty in their own words because yours would have been so much better.

Hey, look, I'm the stupid idea fairy!

Jun. 28th, 2008 01:59 am (UTC)
Oh JESUS. ::makes you very large frozen drink::
Jun. 28th, 2008 02:28 am (UTC)

::Pets gently, then backs away veeery slowly.::

I feel your pain!!
I lost a paypal dispute where I sold an Amazon.com gift certificate on Ebay and sent it via email to the buyer. Apparently it was "fraud" and the person did not have to pay me. But the gift certificate has already been redeemed.

The amount? $1,000

I am bringing my lunch to work and taking the bus for the foreseeable future to try and recoup my $$.

Jun. 29th, 2008 09:39 pm (UTC)

Oh, A, that's HORRIBLE!! I'm so terribly sorry about that. Being swindled is such a shitty, helpless feeling.

*shares lunch with you*
Jun. 29th, 2008 11:33 pm (UTC)
I just wanted you to know that things can always be worse!

*munches on a sandwich*

I'm seeking to recoup via traditional legal means, but don't know whether I will have much luck. I've been in touch with a few others who were also swindled, so we may have a case (it's like $5,000 total and so worth pursuing).

Jun. 29th, 2008 02:17 am (UTC)
Yikes. That is just a run of shitty money luck. Are all the corners in your rooms cleared out? I am so halfassed about stuff but I've heard that feng shui for money is best achieved by keeping the corners cleared of junk. The only time I've ever managed to achieve that resulted in me having lots of money. It didn't hurt that I was working three jobs at the time either. Four if you count the band I was in.
*rubs your feet and adds extra tequila to the margarita mix*
Jun. 29th, 2008 09:49 am (UTC)
Urgh... One of those days. :-( I hope you'll get a better evening. :-P
Jun. 29th, 2008 09:51 pm (UTC)
Have you been to this blog before? http://sterkworks.com/the-mormon-church-is-gay/489/

If not you should. You will probably like it. Fucking hilarious. I thought of you when I was reading it.
Jul. 1st, 2008 03:51 am (UTC)
BAH, Marriott hotels. I'll get the cans of spraypaint, you get the eggs, we'll drive to their HQ and have fun. PS howzabout the state of Utah being FIRST IN THE NATION in bankruptcies? That one's my favorite.

Also the pool cues game sounds like the sort of fun my brother and I used to get up to. *reminisces fondly* We used to knock over furniture during fights. And NEVER ONCE broke the sibling code of silence once mom and dad got back home.

And then he went on a mission and got married in the temple and now his wife's knocked up. There's a lesson here somewhere.

I forget what I was going to say. It was probably something along the lines of *HUGS* TOMORROW IS ANOTHER DAY.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.

Time Wot It Is
