And how is it I didn't notice? (Okay, I'd sort of noticed I was insane, about the time I started thinking about building my own loom. But the rest of this stuff snuck up on me.)
Last night I smashed my bum hand in the pantry door. For the rest of the evening, the Goober would pretend to bonk her arm on things, stop, clutch it, and yell "OW, FUCK!" ...thankfully this morning she seems to have forgotten the new vocabulary words.
Then, through a haze of painkillers, FedEx dropped off a package. I'm sitting there thinking "Shit, did I order more wool and forget...?" but it wasn't for me. It was for the husbeast. Inside was a watch. (No idea when he ordered it, why, or how he paid for it. At the moment my stress levels are high enough and I'm not asking because I know the answers will piss me off.) Anyway. This watch does everything but wipe his ass for him. A compass, a thermometer, a BAROMETER, it even does altitude. Setting it, among other things, involved telling it how high above sea level it is, and how far the husbeast's hand is from the ground when he's walking around. Then the Goober found all the super-large buttons on it and the two of them spent the rest of the night playing with it. My only thought is "What, no microwave?"
This morning I was awakened by Sekhmet, who was standing on my back, meowing, and beating on my head with her paw. Fucker.
As if things aren't weird enough around here, I've been trying to order "Fantasia" and "Fantasia 2000" because the Goober's big into music and I won't mind watching them over and over. I thought this would be a simple matter of logging onto the Disney web site and paying them. But no.
A bit of backstory for those overseas - Hollywood has been claiming for years that they're losing massive piles of money to piracy and re-sold DVDs. Even though accountants and mathmaticians have proven that their statistics are bogus and it's impossible for them to lose as much as they're claiming (according to them, they lost SIX BILLION in the year 2005 alone, to pirated copies). Their solution to this is propaganda (including a web site that makes movie piracy out to be worse than child molestation and selling nuclear warheads to small middle eastern countries), and to prosecute anyone who does ANYTHING remotely threatening to their copyrights.
Because suing your customers is always such good business.
Okay. With this in mind, I logged on to Disney. No Fantasia available. It's a "Limited Edition" and isn't being released right now. WHICH MEANS TO GET A COPY I HAVE TO BUY A USED COPY, WHICH THEY CLAIM IS ILLEGAL. If the motherfuckers want to quit losing money to piracy, WHY AREN'T THE SONS OF BITCHES SELLING THE GODDAMN DVDS????? Assholes. Total assholes. I'm tempted to fire off an e-mail to Disney entitled 'you stupid morons', but I doubt they'd open it.
Only in America. Not selling a product and then getting pissed when people buy used. What in the FUCK? They deserve to lose six billion dollars. Dickheads.
Anyway, thanks to my hand smash last night, I've decided taking time off is pretty pointless, to hell with it, and I'm going to finish up spinning this teal wool. Why not? Everyone else has lost their mind. I need to join in.
