Well, at least the outcry against against StyleSeek made them change their policy.

Just remember - the "significant" birthdays are not tied down to a specific number, but ones that good things happen during! (Here's hoping you have plenty of those in the next few years, Drinnik!) Image

Empath speaks the truth! My 18th birthday was lame, while my 19th kicked ass. My 21st birthday was really quiet and I got to enjoy it with my fiancee by having my first legal American drink... away from friends and family :( But my 22nd was the best birtday I've had in my entire life!

I'm sorry your 30th sucked. I wish you a happy few days after your birthday, birthday, though. :)

Day before my 18th the house was flooded and I was wading around in the contaminated water. I was enjoying myself.

Ewww that happened to me once. Basement flooded. I was the only one home what with my family away on vacation. I got to spend the next few days with severe pnuemonia AND bronchitis taking buckets of water up and out of the house.I thought I was going to die. It was only near the end I realized the basement cat litter had become victim to the flood and a little cat poop floated by me. Thank goodness my BFF is a handyman and was able to not only stop the flooding, but take the day off to help me clean.

Aw, poop; in all the eagerness to cheer someone else up from their venting, I forgot the reason I opened the thread in the first place - my own vent:

Spent the day making pizzas for the deli - there's a sale starting today, compounded with the whole 'incipient weekend' bit. As such, I must have made around fifty or more pizzas.

...and I have reached the stage where the aroma of cold pepperoni nauseates me. :(

Dunno if a freshly cooked pepperoni pizza will have a similar response (mind you, in the past few months I've been leaning away from the spiciness of that mean and instead getting salami on my pizzas).

That relies on my close acquaintances being familiar with the works of Douglas Adams. Sadly this is not the case.

You do, however, have a bit of time to find appropriately literary friends before the relevant birthday.

My sister said to me that I don't believe in God.
How nice of her, a Christian to decide what I believe and don't believe in. Doesn't that destroy the whole point of faith. It's personal and no one can challenge if you or don't believe in it. Only if it's something worth believing in.
-----------------------
I got a letter from the bank about interest-free overdraft limit shrinking, which I knew was going to happen and to what amount (been trying to generate the money for it whilst being unemployed). However, when I asked in the bank about the time before, they said "late September". The letter actually says it's mid-August which turns: Me *just* about making it over the threshold with about £50 spare to: If I'm lucky, being £75 short.

The interest rate is 17.83% EAR which was annoying to Google the definition for. Basically, means I'll have to pay £13 in interest if I am lucky and hit my projections (taking into account JSA, Amazon Sales and the one painting sale I've done. And not spending any money at-all. At least I have my contact lenses for this month. That's £20 in a spike.

It's painful that I can budget but I have not job to budget money with. I basically am budgeting a trickle of cash, when I need a flood.

If I would have been direly over the threshold, I have my personal savings to dip into, but it does affect the interest you get.

Merry? That's why I gave up on organized religion - I categorically object to the idea of sublimating MY beliefs and faith to match the demands of any mortal human.

Even in winter, we try to beat the heat any way we can. :P

Own (minor) vent: is it that had to actually look at the type of cartridge I showed you? It didn't have a tip, so those ballpoint ones you offered clearly aren't the right ones.

I'm still thinking how I can budget. I'm annoyed that the Bank gave me misinformation when I asked for it and I have been projecting my finance around the date they initially gave.

Also, if I had been seriously over, the new-interest-free-threshold, I wouldn't have enough time to withdraw money from my savings account and transfer it into my normal account. I ought to be grateful that I am only above by £500. The annoying thing is, if I get employed tomorrow... I don't think I would be paid by the deadline. So, I may cancel out the over-ness of the future threshold but still probably have to pay some interest.

I also don't know if the interest is on how much I exceed the interest-free overdraft. Or if it's by total overdraft. And what happens when I enter the realms of my normal overdraft.

Grabbed random old clothes to go play squash in, was rather active and sweaty, turns out the particular pair of trousers I picked up show sweat rather... well.

Was incredibly embarrassing leaving leisure centre, massive dark green sweat patches on light green fabric are rather obvious - this has to rank pretty highly in embarrassing situations.

Why is sweat so embarrassing? We all do it and yet there is something fundamentally humiliating about walking around with visible sweat patches, only saving grace was that I only had to walk a couple of hundred metres to my car from the doors and wasn't taking the bus. In future will bring spare trousers as well as shirt, also will invest in/dig out ones that show sweat less obviously.

Not to mention that the statement was irrelevant anyways, seeing as Obama's father only spent a portion of the late 50's and early 60's in America, as a student, and lived in Kenya for the majority of his life. So he never had any real reason to join civil rights organizations. Oh, and what do their father's have to do with anything, anyways?

Hraarg. This is a part of my life and I hate that every time I bring it up everything just descends into passive-aggressive name-calling. You're all such a wonderful group of people and remarkably tolerant for your circumstances; why do you have to be such giant assholes about this one thing? And I can't even complain about it here since it's a sensitive topic here too. Hrraargh. *chews off own arm in impotence*

There's a lump in my right boob that hurts like a bitch. It doesn't feel like a new lump, just an inflamed one, but it's worrying me. It started yesterday when I took off my bra, and I was hoping it would go away, but it hasn't yet. Doctor, or do I give it a little more time? Stupid freaking body. Why can't you just stop hurting me?
