Yeah. You read right. This is for everything that doesn't have anything to do with Eva.

Pretty much everyone done with their teens is a twenty-something mind in a whatever age body. The only difference is the number of responsibilities you have, how your current social circle pressures you to behave, and how much you have to lose if you rebel against either of those. Nobody ever really 'grows up' past this point, they just convince themselves and/or others that they do. At no point will a council of respectable elders grant you official access to the secret lore of adulthood. Everyone is just faking it as best they can.

Had a bit of an overeating binge of French fries which gave me a tummy ache and also got me thinking I need to seriously alter my diet or I could seriously die in just a few years.

True enough, it's just that some people claim to be so "adult" and yet they're hiding their immaturity. At times I told myself it's pretty much pointless to argue with my sister who thinks she's right all the time, and indeed she may never understand how much I'm going through.

Oh, well, I'm looking forward to the day when I'll be walking out of this stupid trap on my own feet instead of on a stretcher.

There was an altercation across the complex from my work last night which resulted in a guy shooting at a group of people. Nobody was hurt thankfully and the guy was arrested a couple of blocks away.

Local news media is reporting that it happened on our property and in our parking lot which is a outright falsehood. So I expect things to be rough business wise for awhile since people will view us as "Unsafe" even though it happened well away from our building. All thanks to bad reporting.

While reading a daily comic on Danbooru I noticed the "amputee" tag (and its multi-thousands occurrence). I guess I should've known better than clicking on that tag on a site that also hosts rather risque (and more) drawings... :facepalm:

Gorn is pretty horrifying. Even knowing it exists and people like it is horrifying.

Oh no, gorn was not the problem - most of it is so crazily over the top that I involuntarily crack up any time I see any of it anyway (a bit like some overly bloody horror movies where the bright red blood pisses all over the place in quantities a blood bank would be proud of). The problem was the number of images featuring quadruple amputee (we're talking short stumps tied off like one would tie off a sausage here) but otherwise unscathed and very big breasted (a very realistic combination...) ladies being 'loved' (yeah right) for their handicap only...

...the other category of "disturbing" images that I rather loathe involves strong females and artists who hate them for not being completely subservient. Let's not talk about the kind of images that one results in... :cringe:

Taking the bus sucks. But man its never a dull moment. The people you see on the bus will stick with you long after they're gone.

I was late for something important today, but not because I overslept. Because someone on the bus had to be a prick. An old lady, a miserable old hag. She had a plastic bag with her, and what was in that bag . . .smelled like something dead. Whether it was a rat or a cat or a severed head, I dont know. But the smell stunk up the whole bus. I contemplated getting off halfway because the smell was that bad.

After about 5 stops the bus driver had enough he stopped the bus and politely asked her to get off. And she and him proceeded to get into a heated argument. Eventually, he won out, but by the time he did I was already late for class. And the rotting corpse smell from that bag she held stuck with us until I did make it to my stop.

Now my throats sore from breathing in Corpse Ladys ssmell. I've got something more important to do tomorrow, and If I get sick I won't be able to make it.

Shitty day today. Literally. Cool story my ass. :facepalm:

* Without warning the dog came up the dinner table and ate the lunch leftovers, just as I was busy washing the dishes. Fuck this, I thought the dog was supposed to be in the bedroom.
* Friend called, said he was going to buy a laptop that was labelled a Sony Vaio, supposedly with an i7 processor, 8gb of memory and a 500gb hard drive. Asked if it was for real, but I told him to send pictures immediately so that I could verify it, check its appearance. Dunno why he didn't, but two hours later, I arrived, saw it was a fucking fake, a recycled Fujitsu laptop but with fake Intel and Sony Vaio stickers. He just lost the equivalent of US$160 to a sweet-talking swindler. For God's sake, I told him, you should've sent me pictures first and I would've saved you from this fucking swindle.
* Came home to arrive that my room was spattered with dogshit. Had to mop the floor with bleach.

Got to school a little early today, so of course morning class is cancelled. Hanging around with nothing to do for the next several hours... Wheeee.

Got a new phone case today, and in the process of swapping it out I accidentally dropped my Pixel while it was 'naked' and cracked the back glass. And of course one of the little spiderweb cracks just has to go over the camera. :facepalm:
