^^;; You know me... I hate whinging, for the most part... but I felt a need to get this off my chest before I go off on vacation and compound it with my traditional bitchfests with my father. Happens every time. We really don't make good company for each other over extended periods of time, I think. ^^;;


I hate this sneaking of wireless Internet from some unknown neighbour merely because my father cannot get our own wireless network working after trying to connect Vicki's spanking new laptop to it several days ago. This means intermitted flickering on and off MSN and AIM but usually not enough to maintain any sort of reasonable conversation with anyone. This doesn't really anger me... it just irritates me somewhat.

Oh. And did I mention Vicki has a new laptop? "You have to wait 'til University!" my ass. Sure, she whines and screams and throws tantrums and she gets expensive presents. I whine, even a little, and I'm a shame to the family. >.>;; Favoritism at its most blatant, folks. Everybody knows it, everyone even tells them they can see it, and they know it and don't know how to stop it. It's kind of cute, the way they can fool themselves so well... you know, in that very sad way. That's what our whole family life is, anyway, them lying to themselves. But as that hurts entirely too much to even think about, I'm not going into that, much less find the capability in me to be able to write it down.

^^;; I think that might actually be what this entry is about... me doing what I always do and side-stepping around the main hurt and fussing about the superficial. Well... I don't know how to stop it. Saying it, writing it or even thinking about it will just make me more afraid, and I don't think I can stand that right now. ^^;;

So! I'll stay with just the superficial! THEY NEVER GOT ME A BIRTHDAY PRESENT! *pouts* Wanna know why? Because they'd already spent too much buying my sister's laptop! ;p

Seriously though... I sometimes wonder how they can spend $1000+ on my sister for no apparent reason, can take us to HK for a 3-week crosscountry venture, and yet won't even consider letting me buy this for myself as a present to me.

In conclusion (or to summarize, for those who avoided the lj-cut ^^): Steph's parents are meeaaaann :( :( :( and I'm greedy and want presents and I'm very, very weird.

^_^ I think I'm just not meant to understand my parents, huh? Or myself even, and my apparent mood swings. I was just blinking back tears, ten minutes ago, wasn't I? And here I am smiling and singing along happily to Love Flies. *shakes head* Just more evidence to support the "Steph is completely and utterly off her freaking rocker" claim.

*shrugs and dances off to the sounds of Stay Away to replay Donkey Kong 64*

P.S. Seven, no SIX days now! left until I go flying off to parts unknown. ^_^

P.P.S. The Trax are fucking awesome. I failed to mention that when I first heard their music. (Stupid me) But now I've been finally able to download the PVs which leaves me slack-jawed at how pretty they are too. :O :O :O They are so coming with me to HK. ^^

Re: Christ...
o.O But it's been... but... wow.

So they emailed to tell you that it'll be late in shipping, and then they email again telling you it's not being shipped because they have nothing to ship? @.@;; WTF?

And as for AWAKE, I am going to manage to buy it somehow! Especially since I'm getting my credit card soon... it will be one of my first purchases.

...And possibly the TRAX singles just because I love them. ^^;;;

Also! Hair cut tomorrow (in that I have a date with a pair of scissors tomorrow, I'm not entire sure how much of a difference there'll be besides less of the fluffy and split-ends and about a half-inch shorter). And Steph is dying her hair some other color tomorrow as well. This patchwork of black-brown-gold is beginning to grate on me. ^^

Re: Christ...
Weee haircut!! i've really got to cut mine, shirt length is kinda long... and i also want to dye it but im being cheap and lazy

I will never buy from YesAsia again, ever--- oh but on the buying note, ive found this manga importer, that gives you the actual yen price- though shipping is pricey, but if you get more then 3 volumes its cheaper then buying them here and the more you buy the better deal it is-- they have lots of series actually, though a shame no hana kimi, but im so close to finishing that collection anyways--- i figure ill complete my Furuba through them, though the parents may not like the mass packages coming to my house.... lol i paid off my like 700 dollar credit card bill yesterday, my bank account cries (though still over a 1000, w00t) -- my parents will sure notice when im broke in the fall though- at least AC is already paid for so it wont rape me in September... I sure want more manga though.... i cant find my volume 1 of hana kimi, i could have sworn i have bought it along time ago- i found v2 and im shocked id have just bought a second volume--- i must re buy 1, get 12, then 18-20, and 22-23-- then like 10 more furuba (which i hear will end at volume 22- yay!)

Re: Christ...
^^;; Maaa, the number of your impending purchases still manages to make my head reel no matter how much I should be used to it by now.

Speaking of Fruits Basket, would you still be able to get me those scans? ^^;; I've been wanting to read them. I would offer you links to Selah-sempai's Miyavi-pet fics because he is the cutest thing in the world in them, but as they're friends-locked, I'd have to send them to you.

Well, since you're online... ;p
