Manual Alarm Clocks

What’s the deal with them? All my electronic ones always break on me (for whatever reason unknown) and I have been relegated to one that is of the M&M’s variety that I think my mom got at some raffle awhile back.

I love it though. It’s loud, it ticks, and it needs to be wound up (which is of course a thorn in my bum). The fact that I have to wind it up everyday is annoying, but at least it gives me something to do. It’s doing better than my Tamagotchi, ironically!

So what’s the deal with all this digital crap? It never works for me (of course like always) and it kinda made me wonder how people got up at the right time way back in the day. Sure they had wind up clocks for awhile, but even before that or for the people that couldn’t afford them? Roosters probably, but golly; what happens if they didn’t hear the bird give out it’s cry? I feel that I would have slept in and missed many classes in school if I had to rely on a male-chicken to wake me up every-morning.

Okay and what’s the deal with Gus? He’s being a weiner again and is turning more and more into a Brit (no offense to them). Just he is even talking like a Brit (which is mégaüber-scary) since I can never understand what the hell they are saying!

While on that topic of UK, I saw a film today called ‘Billy Elliot’ that was from the UK; and my god I need to find subtitles because I can’t understand what the hell the middle-to-low-class Britans from Durham are saying!! They sound half-Irish or something, and therefore I can’t understand a word what they say. It was good film about a little boy who wanted to become a ballet dancer (Hmmm!) but never-the-less it was heartwarming for some strange reason that I haven’t figured out!

On top of that, I need to park my butt in-front of my dad’s PC tomorrow while he is out (thank God) to burn bunch of DVDs of my films that I have been storing on that computer. If he only knew the crap that is on that computer, he would probably die of a heart-attack, oh well he will never know because he has his laptop.

Which also reminds, me he finally got a job, and it’s actuallk a half decent one too. He is manager of a new branch that is oppening up from a huge North American electric company! Well he’s old, but I’m sure he will manage, which will make my mom feel less stressed because then he can pay her back all the shit she has had to pay for for the last 5 years. Seems about right in my mind, and luckily this is all right before we are going through the ‘move’ stage.

All the outside patio stuff is done (finally after 5 years) and all we have to worry about is painting the troffs (my job) and doing little things inside the house like putitng in new carpet for the upstairs (minus my room) and fixing the tiling on the landing. All this damned work just so that we can downsize (FINALLY!) although my mother is quite upset about moving (moreso then the divorse) since it’s basically she said it’s “our” home, by which she means her’s an mine (ironically she left father-dearest out of that conversation – hehe :D)

So yeah, about those alarm clocks.. I gotta set mine to wake up bright and early to celebrate the fact that my father won’t be around all day for the first time in months. Whoohoo!

Technology, sigh

So I have been absent from the world for the last uhm.. Since Friday so nearly a week since my laptop seems to fail and I had a corrupt OS. Now, having said that, luckily I had apparently backed up most of my stuff to DVDs, but as it turns out when I went to put everything back (after major issues with the computer and MBR and shit) all my music is lost. Literally

UDF Error or something, which I don’t know what the hell that means, but I keep trying to rip the DVD with all the songs and such, and I keep getting empty files. This means all my Eurovision, all my Melodifestivalen, everything. The only silver lining is the directories are there still so I can at least go searching for it all.. But seriously, does anyone realize how difficult it will be to find all the music that I have collected over 5 years? How difficult it is to find all my Melodifestivalen songs back to 2001?

I think I cried while I slept, in hopes that it would work today, but alas it didnt.. And on top of everything else, I’m having my monthly-male-PMS thing so the fact that my HDD was partly corrupt and I didn’t have an OS to work with and then my partitions were deleted, I was pissed and that’s an understatement.

Honestly now, if anyone knows how to solve my DVD-data problem, please help me and save my life. For without my music, I am seriously going to end up in the hospital for depression attacks! :wave:

Oh and just for the record, I’m not going to London, because a certian somebody decided to go to some shit other thing that he doesn’t even want to go to. But surprise surprise, it’s with S so why the hell wouldn’t he go? Why is it that my supposed best friend can’t ever put me first, when he’s always N°1 on my list? I seriously need new friends, even net ones ¬¬

So again, my plans for a possible vacation were shot to hell.. GO FIGURE

Springtime Lovin’

In the last 48 hours many things have happened, some good, some bad, but mostly confusing and good in some aspect. Firstly I have burned 4-ISO-DVD’s which means there is lots of space on my HD 🙂

Other than that let’s recap the ‘love’ that has been going on. I have had one Dutch person confess their love to me, despite being about 19 years my senior (it weirdly does not creep me out) and beg for me to date them. All I could say is that I was flattered but I would need to meet first, and then see where it goes from there.

Secondly I had a Finn confess their love to me after knowing them for a few weeks and begging me to go out on a date. Sadly I had to tell them that I was in Canada at the moment and would be going to France in September, broke their heart I think but we will see what happens. They are currently in Venezuela on vacation so!

Thirdly I had someone British nearly confess their love for me after knowing me only for about a day. The weirdest part about it, is that they were a porn star.. What the heck is up with that?! Sometimes I don’t even wan’t to know what kind of vibes I give out! Oh well I was flattered, and I will need to deal with these things as they come

Fourth, I had an Ecudorian beg me to visit them in New York (which obviously isn’t going to happen since the city is gross)! I think they are cool and all, but I’m just not into them to be honest! I will try to let them down gently, as I don’t want to hurt anyone.

What’s the deal with all this confessing and such lately? For 19 years nothing happens, and then this *plops over*… I don’t even know what to think! And on top of all this a Slovene really really really likes me and I think it’s starting to be obvious to me, weirdly enough.

*looks around frantically* Where is my wannabe mentor when I need them? omg I will explode soon, but knowing me I will only get crushes on every single one of them and then I would be in even worse of a mess than I am right now. I say blame Skype as it makes me more vulnerable to talking to people. Which reminds me ETL; 4 hour conversation still is the longest that I’ve had so far 😉 Be happy and be honoured that it was you 🙂
