Fucking Photobucket

Seriously, are you kidding me?

$400 a year for this shit

So, no notice, and $400 a year if I want to 3rd party this shit.  Some people can’t even get their pictures so I’m in a panic to download everything.  I was going to set up a flickr account but I am just going to upload straight to WordPress.  My free account has 3 GB of space.

SINCE 2006 THESE FUCKING FUCKS

I guess my whole 1.4 GB is bankrupting them.  Now to download almost 3k pictures.  I’m sick to my stomach about this, just thinking of all the time that I don’t have to deal with this.

This is going to be a sticky post until I get it all sorted out.

Happily Random

This song seems terrible at first, sacrilegious as some would say.  Even while I laugh, I get that feeling that I might just cry towards the end because the song is actually quite beautiful.

The books you think I wrote are way too thick
Who needs a thousand metaphors to figure out you shouldn’t be a dick?
And I don’t watch you when you sleep
Surprisingly I don’t use my omnipotence to be a fucking creep

You’re not going to heaven
Why the fuck would you think I’d ever kick it with you?
None of you are going to heaven
There’s a trillion aliens cooler than you

You shouldn’t abstain from rape just cause you think that I want you to
You shouldn’t rape cause rape is a fucked up thing to do
(Pretty obvious, just don’t fucking rape people. Didn’t think I had to write that one down for you.)

I don’t think masturbation is obscene
It’s absolutely natural and the weirdest fucking thing I’ve ever seen
You make my job a living hell
I sent gays to fix overpopulation
Boy did that go well

You’re not going to heaven
Eat a thousand crackers sing a million hymns
None of you are going to heaven
You’re not my children
You’re just a bad game of Sim

You shouldn’t abstain from pork just cause you think that I want you to
You can eat pork cause why the fuck would I give a shit?
(I created the universe, think I’m drawing the line at the fucking deli aisle?)

You argue and you bicker and you fight
Atheists and Catholics, Jews and Hindus argue day and night
Over what they think is true
But no one entertains the thought of maybe God does not believe in you
You pray so badly for heaven
Knowing any day might be the day that you die
But maybe life on earth could be heaven
Doesn’t just the thought of it make it worth a try?

My love’s the type of thing that you have to earn and when you earn it
You won’t need it
My love’s the type of thing that you have to earn and when you earn it
You won’t need it

I’m not gonna give you love just cause I know that you want me to
If you want love then the love’s gotta come from you

We’ve adopted! — and other things

His name is Luis!  Not sure how old he is, but he has a child of his own.  Oh, and he’s a soldier.

Soldier cat deserves a cheezeburger.

So, no, we didn’t adopt a child nor did we adopt another pet.  Through the Adopt A US Soldier program, we were matched up with Luis.  I don’t know how much detail I should give, but the above picture is not of him.  Let’s just make that clear.  Any additional information I may or may not have is really not for discussion.  It makes me sad that on the AAUSS site they have to reinforce this idea over and over.  Also that this is not a dating site.  I mean, really?  Really, people?  I get it, but people have enough shit to worry about, wherever they’re stationed.  They don’t need a stateside stalker.

It may not seem a lot to some, but letters are so important, even in these times of instant information and communication.  Letters take the time and effort to say that you’re really thinking about someone.  I thought about this and realized that the servicemen and women that are in these far flung corners of the world could be my children.  Both because I’m so decrepitly old and also because so many soldiers are so excruciatingly young.  We are sending letters each week and I’m going to send a care package soon; I need more details about his preferences before I spend money on things that he’ll hate.  I don’t think it will matter that much, because even if my guy doesn’t like the stuff, surely someone else will.  But I adopted Luis and I want to get things for him, not for “any soldier”.  Any suggestions would be appreciated, there are lots of things that have been suggested to me that I haven’t even thought of.

Speaking of care packages, I got gifts for Chinese New Year (why yes, it was many months ago, that’s not the point) that I haven’t even posted about.  The Awesome Xingible over at Special Thanks sent me and my kiddos some awesome gifts.  In true shithead fashion, I ate everything and used everything and took very few pictures.  Here’s all the goodies:

They weren’t my favorite, but I still ate the whole bag.

 

I drank all the tea, but I did have one picture!

 

To balance the teh tarik. All eaten.

 

Josh got a bottle similar to these.  I’m too lazy to go downstairs to take a picture.  That second moss green seems a bit off.

 

My favorite! Fish for fish!

Robin got some awesome gel pens which she uses to make super fun pictures.  I don’t have any pictures of them because I’m a horrible parent.  Other things I got: embroidery thread, turmeric for my sleep, bullion, also got a *signed* copy of Eva Goes Solo so how awesome is that?!

So much stuff, all of it amazing.  Thank you, Xingible!  You really are the best and I’m very, very lucky.  Now off to video games and naps and such.  Priorities.
