Edited to add my own thoughts (not part of the original reddit call for action) And if you do not feel like taking a total break and perhaps want just a trial separation or couple's counseling, then perhaps consider Black March Lite 2.0 = spend, but spend money on those content creators and independent retailers who came out against SOPA/PIPA.  And tell them why you're buying their products in March.  There are many of them.

Black March - Thursday March 1st 2012 to Saturday March 31st 2012
With the continuing campaigns for internet-censoring litigation such as SOPA and PIPA, and the closure of sites like Megaupload under allegations of 'piracy' and 'conspiracy' the time has come to take a stand against music, film, and media companies' lobbyists.
The only way is to hit them where it hurts.
Their profit margins.
March 2012 is the end of the First Quarter in economic reports world wide.
Do not buy a single record. Do not download a single song, legally or illegally. Do not go to see a single film in cinemas, or download a copy. Do not buy a DVD in the stores. Do not buy a videogame. Do not buy a single book or magazine.
Wait the four weeks to buy them in April: see a film later, etc... Holding out for just four weeks, maximum, will leave a gaping hole in media companies profits for the first quarter, an economic hit which will in turn be observed by governments world wide as stocks and shares will blip from a large enough loss of incomes. This action will give a statement of intent:
"We will not tolerate the Media Industries' lobbying for legislation that will censor the internet."

Things That Make Me Feel Accomplished

I organized my pantry. Which doesn't sound like much. But you have to take into account that when I moved in here, my landlord aka the roommates mom left all the food in the cupboards for us to have. After almost two months of barely touching half of it I went on one of my weird cleaning sprees yesterday and went through all the food. Three trash bags of various expired or questionable food later , I've gotten it down to items that we may actually use. There's a whole shelf for just drink mixes. And our fridge consists mostly of milk, pop, juice and beer/wine coolers. Brit and I went shopping tonight and we've decided that we both eat like ten year olds who really really like baked potatoes.

Also, I've finished The Hunger Games Series, The Enchanted Forest Chronicles (Favorite book series as a kid and I found it for cheap on amazon!!!!) and am now working on a Maureen Johnson book called The Name of the Star. My love of reading is back and I'm back to my old habit of keeping a book in my purse and devouring a book a day. I'd forgotten how much I adore books. Now I just need to find someone/people to discuss books with. It doesn't help that some of my all time favorites are ones that no one has ever heard of.

Things That Make Me Fucking Ecstatic
My Grandma is cosigning on a car loan with me so I can finally get a car!!! No more walking to work in the snow. No more bumming rides home from people cause I refuse to cross the highway in the dark. No more sitting at home on my day off doing nothing!!! This is freaking exciting. I didnt' realize what a luxury having a car was until I didn't have one. This is going to make my life so much easier now. Plus, I can finally get a different job, hopefully one that pays me more an hour. I know that everyone probably says this, but I so so don't make enough an hour to compensate for all the work I do for my job.

Things That I Dread

My roommates sister keeps most of her shit here (The house I rent is roommates childhood home) and stays here on her breaks from school. It hasn't been so bad so far because she's only come home every other weekend or so and by the time I want to wring her neck, its time for her to go back to school. Starting next weekend, she is going to be here for a month straight.

I'm not sure how I'm going to handle that. The girl is ridiculously messy, has no regard for anyone elses belongings and is the most selfish person on the planet. When she was here for five days for her Thanksgiving break, she did her laundry the first day and dumped all her clean clothes on the couch. I figured eh, she's just gonna fold them while watching TV. No, she literally lived off the couch for two days. She would wake up, come out to the living room, pick out some clean clothes, go change in the bathroom and then leave her dirty clothes on the bathroom floor. I finally couldn't take it anymore and went through all the common areas of the house and picked up all her shit and threw it all in her room on her bed. She isn't comfortable enough around me/doesn't know me well enough yet to say anything rude in response to that, but I just know that if I have to deal with epic mess such as that for a month straight, I may go insane. She drives Brit just as insane as she does me. Even worse because they are siblings and her selfish spoiled attitude has been bugging Brit for years. Her mom gives us a great price for rent for putting up with Ashley's bullshit, but still. I don't know what I'm going to do. Cross my fingers and hope that she manages to grow up and turn into a mature and pleasant person sometime in the next week I guess.

Friends Cut

I went' ahead and did a friends cut. Don't take it personal guys, my flist has just gotten ridiculously huge compared to what I'm used to. (That's what she said.) I cut those who I didn't click with or who I found my self skimming their entries when they popped up on my flist. (Sad, but true.) Nice having you on my flist while I did! See you around the interwebs.

EDIT I meant to post this before work but totally forgot. My bad!

Because I have a tendency to watch movies/shows I love over and over and over and over and over again to the point that no one in their right mind would want to see them anymore, I'm gonna do my best to make all of this things that I have never seen/read before.(Or if I have seen it, at least have it be long enough that I don't remember what it was about.) Let's see if I can do it!.

LOL I love nerds. This is oddly awesome.
Youtube is getting in on the April Fool's shit and putting all the vids and writing upside down as shown HERE.

This upsets me a bit, cause I prefer my Phil right side up.

I really need to stop being lazy and just make/upload a mood theme.
Terror Alert Level

Thought of you. Nerd.
So new layout featuring James McAvoy. Pretty pretty man, yes?

Its about damn time I changed it anyway.
proof that I either have the ears of a bat or like dollhouse entirely too much or all of the above.

Pyro: *sits in her room spinning in circles for a reason that even she can't remember or make sense of*
BFF's Dad: *from family room* Well, I could stop the recording on Dollhouse.
Pyro: *hears it and tries to run out of her room but is off kilter for obvious reasons and runs into The Hulk* No! *manages to find the door and makes a drunken run out to the family room, almost falling on couch in the process* Don't stop Dollhouse! I've been waiting all week for that!!!
BFF's Dad: *laughs for obvious reasons* I wasn't really going to. I was just teasing you.
Pyro: *tries to put hands on hips but is still a little dizzy and misses the first time, having to try again* You mean I ran all the way out here, while I was dizzy to stop you and you were just teasing me?
BFF: *laughs again* Yep!
Pyro: *sticks tongue out* You're a brat. Now excuse me while I got throw up. I think I spun too much.
Krysta, BFF's little sister: *calls after Pyro* I told you that you shouldn't spin in circles! It makes your tummy hurt!

And that folks, is a glimpse into the every day life of Pyro. Still think you want to come visit, Beth?
I've been vollunteered to babysit a four year old with extreme ADD today. I have the worlds worst migraine. Yay friday for me.

THAT was Weevil!!?!?!?

I used to fucking love that movie! I wanted to marry Max! (SHUT UP. I was eight okay!?!?! Or maybe nine. but still!) I watched that thing like seventeen times. Wore out the tape my dad had recorded it onto.

Now low and behold, one of the characters I adore now was the same one I adored years ago. Now that's some crazy shit, yo.

Also, why the heck don't I have a Weevil icon? I need to remedy that. Pronto!
