I'm speechless

I don't know who or what to be pissed at.

I just got an automated call from blockbuster in Chicago, saying that I have some overdue materials and that I should return them to my local blockbuster store. Um....what now?
1. I haven't rented anything from blockbuster in years.
2. I live in FLORIDA!!!
3. I think I even lost my blockbuster card, or threw it away years ago.
4. I live in FLORIDA!!!
5. I thought blockbuster got rid of late fees anyway, what are they worried about? It's not like they can charge me anyway.

Oh yeah, I forgot to nodify the appropriate blockbuster video rental authorities. whoops.

What's up with that 'no late fee' crap anyway? All they did was give you like 3 or 4 more days to return the movie and then if you keep it past the due date they charge you for the dvd outright. Those bastards.

Response to those of you who critisized my TV watching habits, love of rocks, and my kittens all at the same time, kudos to you Justin and Jim. That was some intensively thoughtout bullshit and I aplaud you.

Random Comments

If you are an America in the living room, what are you in the bathroom?......

This is in defense of my kittens. I was asked the other day if either of my cats are dumb, in reference to another kitten who lives in my old apartment in MI, who shall remain nameless. That answer is NO! Both of them are extremely smart, although when they get a little hyper and start chasing each other around the apartment all bets are off. The surprising thing is that they don't even try to steal things, they just amuse themselves by fiercly attacking each other until one of them runs away.

There really is nothing else going on sadly enough. Just a ton of school, which is kicking my ass(hole). I don't even know what's going on in the news anymore, I don't have time to watch. OOOOOO that's right. You know how they determine TV ratings? It's done by a company called AC Neilson and they put equipment into your TV and it calls in every night and tells them what you are watching so that advertisers know how much to pay for commercials and networks know what to show. A couple of weeks ago we got chosen to be apart of it so now the TV that Melissa and I watch represents between 12000-19000 people and we contribute to the ratings. Isn't that cool!!!! And they pay us for it too, well not much, but still. I get paid to watch TV. SWEET.

Oh yeah, one last thing...

..... European (you're oh pee an) HA!

To resist is to piss in the wind.......anyone who does will end up smelling.

Another sign that all Christians are going to Hell

In the news this morning:
U.S. Christians issue gay warning over kid video
By Jill Serjeant
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Christian Conservative groups have issued a gay alert warning over a children's music video starring SpongeBob SquarePants, Barney and a host of other cartoon favorites.

Honestly!? What the hell is wrong with you!!!!!!! What is the whole deal with ultra conservative christians and bashing the hell out of gays? I don't understand. I thought the whole thing with being Christian was to love and tolerate your neighbor even if they did not have the same faith as you, that faith of any kind should be celebrated, and people of all kind should be accepted for who they are. I guess the Bible dosen't mean anything to christian conservatives anymore, just hatred and bigotry. Hey wait that reminds me of some other group that rode around on horses in white suits, and burned crosses in people's front yards back in the early 1900's.
I remember now, those two groups are the ONE IN THE SAME, think about it: both preach tolorance and community and family values, but in reality those sermons are only valid for upstanding whites in the Southern U.S. Anyone who preaches those same values in the North and actually follows those values in their daily lives is actually a bleeding heart liberal.
Man, it's all coming back to me now.
So if that's the case, which in fact it is, I don't mind being called a bleeding heart liberal after all. I just wish those Republicans who actually know what the right thing to do is, would ACTUALLY DO WHAT IS RIGHT AND CALL THOSE CONSERVATIVE GROUPS WHO PREACH HATRED, HATE GROUPS!!

That's my soap box for today kids....

Where was I again?

This website really pisses me off. I just spent a half hour writing a big load of crap, trying to be amusing yet sophisticated at the same, and then when I hit 'publish post' it just erases all my text and tells me to go screw myself. DAMN YOU TO HELL BLOGGER!!!

Well I don't have time to re-type everything, so entertain yourself by scrolling down a tad and staring mindlessly at my two new kittens Max (Maximus) and Mia. Ahhhh, yes, see how they take your breath away with their casual cuteness.

4 month old Max. How inconsiderate are you!!! The kitten is trying to sleep for God sakes. "STOP USING THE FLASH"-Max

4 month old Mia sitting on the couch wondering what the hell you're looking at
